Your probably want him or her to live in a beautiful home, drive a luxury car, and be atop of the latest fashion and dressed with the finest clothes. Your ideal avatar might also be a successful businessman or businesswoman. He or she would eat at the best restaurants in town and always be on the list for the upper class social events.

Starting out in Second Life I was living life more as a low class than a high class citizen. I barely had enough linden dollars to pay my rent and wasn’t making ends at any business plan I attempted much less being able to afford any luxurious. The time I was able to dedicate to the game was limited; I became discouraged that I’ll ever have my dream Second Life, that is until I discovered some ways around normal game play in the form of Second Life Cheats. These cheats offers opportunities and possibilities that would otherwise be out of the question or unimaginable in the virtual world. They range anywhere from:
- Dupes that multiplying your linden dollars
- SL copybots that copy/duplicate items
- Second Life macros that automate tasks while your away
If you don’t have to resources to create your dream character or like me just simply don’t have the time. Using cheats is something you may want to consider to help you along.

In October 2008 the virtual world met the real world. IBM’s Academy of Technology held their World Conference in the virtual world at a fraction of the cost of a real world conference.
IBM estimated that the Second Life meeting saved them a total of $320,000. Over 200 people worldwide attended. They invested about $80,000 to have the meeting in the virtual world and saved over $250, 000 in travel and venue costs. Since employees could go back to work immediately after the meeting, they were able to save over $150,000 in productivity gain.
Second Life is the world of adventure, innovation, and profit with its endless opportunities. You can build your dream house on a tropical island and choose any career you wish. You can even start your own Second life business and make real money. You can become a landlord, dancer, writer, architect, or anything else you want to be.
If you are thinking of starting your own Second life business or even expand an existing business, like in the real world, don’t venture out alone. I suggest using SL Guides to help you along:
- Guides will give you a helpful approach or plan on how to best carry out a certain task.
