So here is to the news that the UK is coming out of lockdown over the next 3 months, this is, of course, dependent on the rate of infection not going through the roof again!
This is a quick post to say that as us and the rest of the world shake off our hangovers and social distancing fatigue, the first to get focus on the future will have a massive advantage over the crowds.
Millionaires have been made through face masks and hand sanitizer as well as benefiting from corrupt purchasing deals by governments around the world, and yes you cant take it with you but you can enjoy money while you are here.
There is, however more at stake than that, the huge shift to alternative power and the shift in global economies means that money is even more important now to the standard of your life, and that of your children, now is the time for the 18 hour days and plenty of caffeine to secure your families future.
Dont let the pandemic blind you to your goals and your responsibilities.
Of course you can’t learn anything totally in 45 minutes, that would be crazy talk, I have seen courses claiming this and more however!, but what you can do is train yourself to learn anything and the way to start is in 45 minute sessions.
Is This A Course ?
Hell no, the only thing I will ever sell on here is advertising, and between you and me that is not even worth it, the point to this is that I have found a way that I have successfully used to pass three industry exams in four months from scratch, without cheating and without sacrificing any more time than I had to.
Start with learning how to Learn.
In healthy adults the average attention span for an untrained mind is 45 minutes, this is the window during which you can focus on the subject in hand, after which your mind will start to wander of it’s own accord, there is very little you can do about it, apart of course from training through practice to focus for longer.
What does Focus actually look like ?
The first thing to do is to define what focus looks like, it is not reading a document with one eye on the TV or whilst upgrading a system, or picking what you are going to have for dinner, focus, my friends is stopping all that you are doing and concentrating on one task, stream of information or text to the exclusion of all else for the period of consumption.
The human brain is a sponge, able to soak up as much information as we can find the time to put into it, when we see people that are able to perform great feats of intellect all we are seeing are people that have opened their minds to the reality that they can learn anything at will and retain like a steel database for future reference.
This Article Will Set You Free
If you let it, the words and sentiments, and in fact even more than that the intent behind this article will set you free, you do not need to buy anything from me, or subscribe to some paid for feed, simply try the following suggestions and see how quickly you can learn something, the world is full of knowledge and knowledge truly is power.
Phases of Enlightenment.
Clear your mind of distraction, this may mean for those among us that have children that this is done when they are asleep at night, do not shut your children out, the glory of achievement will pale in the pain of a strained relationship with a child that feels abandoned, any tasks that you cannot get done before sitting down to start focusing can wait 45 minutes, it really isn’t that long, the world will not end, but get this right and it may just become a nicer place for you and yours.
DO NOT USE A MOBILE PHONE TO TIME THE SESSION, you will be tempted to check how much time you have and if you light up that little devil in disguise you will end up looking at pictures of cats!
I use an hourglass sandtimer, they are cheap and available in 45 minute configurations as well as others for when you extend your focus time.
See it through to the end, seriously, don’t be tempted to stop at anytime and do something else, don’t get a coffee, tea or a reefer the size of a tree stump, just sit it out and finish at the 45 minute finish line.
when you have finished do something else immediately, something completely different from what you were doing, do not be tempted to keep on, your brain will have stopped learning without you knowing, only when you are completely comfortable that the information is all going in should you start to extend the time of your focusing.
Why Do This ?
If you can learn to do something to a competency that allows you to fulfil the function of a third party then the cost of that third party is no longer an expense, if you can learn anything in 45 minute bursts then you can effectively learn the vast majority of things within a week, this means that if you have supporting technologies for your business or need to understand the flow of money and investing more, give yourself a year and you will master it.
The internet has it’s faults, it is full of porn, hatred, mis-information and generally bad people trying to take your money and that of the uninformed, but among this is the largest repository of information the world and the human race has ever had access to, if you choose to do it, the line between the fantasy of Neo sat in the chair on the Matrix learning things at the speed of light and you trying to grasp a concept to further your business, career or finances blurs to almost insignificance.
Knowledge truly is power, it is the key to freedom and it is the only way you will beat the people that are trying to climb to the top on your shoulders, if you can learn to learn anything in 45 minutes, you are only ever a week or so away from being better than whatever rival is in your way.
This is what we are all looking for, a future filled with beautiful landscapes and no worries, but we will not get there without thinking for ourselves.
In recent weeks this blog has grown to over 300 subscribers, and for context that has taken me over two years to get there, additionally it has been in previous weeks that I have had so much to do that I have not posted a single thing, however when I was following all the recommendations about how often to post and what to write, I struggled to get over 150 subscribers, but I was tired, and over worked trying to complete my day job as well as the blog on a regular basis, I forgot why I started ironically by pursuing the goal with more and more dedication.
OK so I have noticed as well that a lot of people that have started subscribing are online marketers or people involved in affiliate marketing and such, while this is not a bad thing I challenge you to think of this, if you are following another GURU’s advice and working on it every night religiously to the cost of your freedom haven’t you just actually given yourself another drain on your time and another way to spend money?
And we all fall into the trap of thinking if we just spend a little we can get that extra hit that will create a sale and the viral sales avalanche that will make us rich, problem is for most of us that will never happen, and by most I mean literally 99.99%
I want to propose another way.
First Time Bullshit
Anybody Recognise this ?
The other day I was looking through Linkedin and I noticed a post from the owner / starter of the above brand, talking about how he built the company from nothing and how he stayed up all night packing parcels and printing t-shirts, if we ignore the fact that basically the brand is simply just that, a marketing exercise, the fact is that he was the first person to try social media marketing, that is a fact, they sent some of their clothing to people that had established youtube channels and they basically sold the product for them.
This can never happen again, I am not bitter or stressed by it, I just want people to stop chasing the advice of people that got there first, if you do not believe me then just look how many clothing brands are out there trying to be Gymshark, you don’t see their CEO’s on Linkedin talking about how much money they have because they don’t have any.
So to listen to how this guy did it should be a lesson in how to spot a gap in the market, or get lucky, or simply just for the entertainment value of listening to somebody who has what you want flaunting it in your face and charging you for the privilege of sitting there being told they have more money than you.
All the time you spend listening to the Bullshit is more time that you could be building your business.
Two Ways to Freedom
So there are only two ways, unless you have made it and are just here for a laugh, the first is of course to come up with an original idea, by original idea I do not mean just a new product or a new way of selling, this can mean (and often does) just a new way of approaching advertising.
Like the Amazon’s and Gymshark’s of this of this world you can find a way to do something that people have never seen before and then work at it till you are blue in the face, you see I don’t say that the people behind those brands (and many others like them) didn’t work hard, they did and they also worked against great adversity, being the new person on the block is always harder because people seem to actively want you to fail, you only have to look back at when Jeff Bezos started Amazon to see the ridicule that he got in the press and on the internet that in a twist of irony he now just about owns.
if you manage to find something like this then for gods sake keep plugging away at it because it will succeed (with a few caveats obviously)
The second way is the way that most of us will need to achieve in order to succeed, that is to take something that somebody is already doing and throw enough money at it so you can ram it down peoples throats 24/7 until they start buying, best example is Bang energy drinks, that guy just kept appearing like a bad smell and threw millions at advertising in an already saturated market, he succeeded where others had failed because he had money to throw at it.
However for most people who are on the internet trying to make money that is simply not an option, drowning slowly in debt, barely keeping up payments, we have become exactly what the establishment wants us to be, drones.
F**K You I Won’t Do What You Tell Me!
Now I am not some crackpot radical that believes that we don’t need money to be happy, and that the path to true happiness is to shed the bonds of commercialised consumerism, hell no! I am as materialistic as the next person, but I believe in wealth not credit lifestyles with glass floors just waiting to crack.
What the Establishment Want
I have said this many times before and I will say it again, the establishment, governments, law enforcement, societies, the rich and the famous, need to keep people like us moving through the meat grinder process.
The steps that keep the rich rich and the poor short lived are obvious if you look long enough at the people around you.
BORN – Be born and start on your way down the path of servitude, enjoy this time because it is the only time you are truly free as an individual.
GO TO SCHOOL – Education is essential, you need to learn to read and to write, without this you are at a constant disadvantage, however the education system is designed condition you from the outset and teach you what you need to be a good productive cog, here you learn enough to know what you want and that you will need to finance it to get it.
GET A JOB – Ever stop to think when you clock on in the morning why you are picking up the shit and the guy that owns the company is on a beach somewhere not giving a damn if you live or die, even leaders like Richard Branson showed is true colours during the pandemic when he made the decision from his private island to lay off loads of employees due to budget issues, this job is your prison it is your ball and chain that you begin your productive life with.
GET A MORTGAGE – Mortgage (Death Contract) a house built with financed money that does not exist is given to you for a payment each month until you die or pay it off, there is no value to the house, there is no value to the contract but you will give earned money to the bank making your liability their asset.
PROGRESS – Just through the job market though until you can pay as much tax as you can earn while huge corporations delay tax payments for years and then pay only what they see fit.
TAKE OUT LIFE INSURANCE – Pay the same institutions that you are paying for your house to insure you against the ultimate end, providing more money for them to lend to others and make more interest on, and when you die they simple wipe the debt based on the insured amount, pursue your family for the rest and then somebody else comes along and “buys” the house from them as they are the ones that can provide the Mortgage.
DIE – And don’t forget to pay for your funeral upfront because if you don’t and your family don’t have the money it is a bin bag for you!
Screw the System
Screw Robert Kyosaki, his first successful business endeavour was the book he wrote on becoming rich, the man is a puppet of the banking system, in fact I will go further it is people like him that rely on us mere workers to live their lavish lifestyles, in previous posts I have fallen into the trap of thinking that may be the way, if you look back you will find them as I do not delete anything, this blog is about a learning path, not me trying to claim I have the answers, before you start and indeed where I have started and am continuing to progress through is clear your debt.
If you owe money on something then it is not yours, you only have to stop paying for a month or two and see, so here is the first really harsh lesson, however you choose to do it, through working extra jobs or doing some low paying online stuff, take that money and pay off your debts, own your life, take it back from the establishment and start to live.
Once your life is yours you will have started the journey, don’t invest money when you have debt as you will never get a return that is higher than the debt you are paying out, in the worst of scenarios, you could actually be making yourself more poor by having investments.
This weeks Takeaway
I encourage anybody who has taken the jump to buy their life and the lives of their children and partners back from the establishment meat grinder, however you are doing that, but please think carefully about the way you are doing it, anytime you owe money you are owned, stop being owned, stand up and be your own person, you only need to make it through the first year or son before you amass enough money to be able to purchase the people that are required to really make money, once you make that money you get the power to stand at the devils right hand as opposed to being in his path.
Spend this year or more if needed buying your freedom, then once you have done that spend another year making that freedom exactly what you want it to be, and don’t fall for the meat grinder.
What is your life worth ? have you ever stopped to think ? how much time are you wasting and what will it cost you in the long run ? how much time are you using to forward your goals and dreams and what do you see as reasons that you haven’t got there yet ?
All valid questions but how honest are you going to be with the answers ?
Most peoples primary goal is money, it was certainly mine and I wish I could tell you that it is not but the reality still is that the amount of power you have directly relates to the quality of life that you have and the easiest way to get power is through money, this being said how much money do you actually need ? and what are the goals with that money ?
For instance take Bill Gates, a multi Billionaire, money does not have the same meaning in his world as it does ours, when he makes another million tomorrow he will likely not even realise it, let alone react, for you and me of course this is not the case, unless you have already made it then a million tomorrow would illicit a much different response.
I started several businesses with the goal of becoming wealthy, egged on by the videos on YouTube, the Guru’s and the sheer fact that there is so much money to be made on the internet that surely some of it could be mine, the whole reason for this blog was to make money, but as I went further into the void that is internet marketing this blog took on a different purpose.
The Desperation Trade
For the majority of us on the internet looking to start a business we need to change the financial climate that we have usually mounting debt or the realisation that we have no money for our future stirs us into action and we start casually surfing for online businesses and see the purported wealth of others through Social Media and through advertising campaigns.
But we are desperate to change our situations and that of our families so that makes us a target for con men (and women) and there are plenty out there taking up aim.
Important First Questions
Ask your self this, when was the last time you saw a millionaire or billionaire on YouTube or on Instagram selling you a course on how to become a millionaire ? say Bill Gates get Rich Quick Scheme, or Richard Branson explains Amazon Marketing for a six figure income ? never and I tell you right now you never will.
So when you look at these schemes just think for a minute how do I know they are really a millionaire ? how do I know that they made their money before they made this course to sell to me?
If you can’t qualify these two questions then walk away because if you can’t see that these two questions have valid answers that make sense then the person you are seeing is a fraud.
All Guru’s are Frauds ?
Well in a word yes, if anybody wants to claim they are a Guru and they can make you millions then I would be suspicious, human nature just doesn’t work that way, and when it does it is a very rare thing, look at the people with enough money to fix the vast majority of problems around the world, do they do it ? no, there are Billionaires that have amassed enough private funds to fix poverty and still be multi millionaires but they don’t because it is their money, and why should they give their money away.
Some DO have a lot of money though ?
Yes they do and to be honest anybody at the start of something they make work will make money, and probably a lot of it, but if what they started was a course on how to make money then it is still useless to you, there is only a few things to remember when trying to make money and buy back the time in your life from the establishment.
1. You can Make Money
Yes you can, if you are able to use a computer and you have an idea that you see through then you can make money, how much depends on way to many factors to list in this article but we will discuss this later.
2. Do One Thing and be the BEST at it
If you are the best at anything then you will make exponentially more than the others in the same field, cake makers for instance, most are just small bakeries that turn a profit but never really make enough to have the owner quit work, and then there are some who truly go the extra mile and are the best who make it onto telly and have the rich and famous queuing up for their cakes, how many things you are good at however is down to your capacity, but if you make sure that you never do anything in a mediocre fashion you will do fine.
3. The Internet is a medium not another World
Often forgotten this one, the Internet is so all encompassing that we tend to think that the laws governing our physical world do not apply when we are on the internet, this is not true, the internet is STILL the medium it has not become the platform and it never can be, what I mean by this is the advertising and the sales are all virtual sure, but the humans that interact with the stores and the adverts are still human and respond to the same human wants and desires.
Your First Steps to Wealth
To get back to the title of this article I would like to draw your attention to the cost of your time, conventional lifestyles are, born, educated to serve, serve, retire, die.
Your first step is to see that you are worth so much more than that, the only thing in life we cannot get back that we spend without thinking is time, the time to write this for instance has to be balanced with a reward or it is not worth it, the time you took to read it has to mean you gained something from it or it was not worth it.
So before checking into the next “exclusive webinar” (yeah right) ask your self, would I be better off watching this or instead looking at my finances and working out how I can save money and put it toward buying my life from the world.
If the answer is yes look at your finances then great I will see you next week, if however you sit down with a cup of coffee at the webinar and start taking notes I wish you good luck, cos you will need it.
Odd title I know, but I will explain as quickly as I can, you see I really wanted my own supplement company, and I mean my own brand, I wanted my name and my marketing and it was a vision of success and big cars, but the problem is I got it….
You see before looking into any other option, I simply found a supplier that had a low minimum quantity and purchased from them based on the lack of competition at their quantity level.
OK So How Wrong Was I This Time?
Immeasurably, I was so wrong I could happily hang my own head in shame, what I didn’t think about was the fact that I was starting with an unknown brand, no name no promotion already in place nothing.
The time and resource that is required to move a brand from unknown to big enough to supply the manager at wherever you work the bird and walkout for a better life is massive, and much bigger than I thought.
How I intend to Fix it…
I intend, and in fact have already ordered from a wholesaler that I found so that I can start selling mainstream products, those that people have already spent millions promoting, and I will use the profits from that to build my brand to a point where it can compete, exactly what I should have done in the first place.
I am a TOOL, simple as that, do yourself a favour and if you take no heed of anything I ever say at least follow this bit of advice, make sure that you really want to do what you think you want to do before you do it!!
In my previous post I spoke about the importance that I place on Google as a way to advertise your business or your service.
However, it should be noted that when you start looking at adsense, AdWords, Analytics, it can all get very very confusing very very quickly, in fact actually just looking at the dashboards alone can leave you wondering what to click and where to look.
The purpose of this post is not to provide any kind of training but simply to point you in the direction of free training, 100-percent free training is provided through Google, to help you navigate all of the applications and services that are going to help you ultimately build your business.
The training is from skillshop and is, as I say through Google, believe me if you are ever going to take part in any free training this is the place to do it, very few people actually have a vested interest in your business succeeding over theirs and this is no different, where this differs from the hundreds of YouTube videos, Instagram posts, so-called gurus that want to charge you $2,000 for a one-hour course, is that it’s in Google’s vested interests that you succeed, the more you succeed the greater their value as a company.
I have spoken at length about my disdain for the marketing gurus of this world, and I do realise that some of my readership are marketing gurus or are on my market is and that’s fine, within this industry, and by this industry I mean the advertising industry more specifically the online advertising industry, there are really only two or three groups of people there are the people that have made it, the people that are trying to make it, it and the people that don’t stand a chance.
People that have made it
I’m always a little suspicious of the people that have made it, they always come across as just a little bit trying to rub your nose in their extreme wealth.
That isn’t to say they’re bad people, it’s simply to say that I’m unsure of the value of seeing someone who has the money and the time that money brings, extolling the virtues of what you need to do to make money.
A lot of the advice often seems to centre around meditation, yoga, relaxation and a whole host of other things that take a long time to do, fact is there is only 24 hours in every single day so when these millionaire gurus are suggesting that you spend every waking hour working on your future, the one thing they are missing is the fact that the majority of people sat watching their videos don’t have the time, the most time that the average person is going to be able to spend pursuing a second source of income, is probably nearer 4 or 5 hours a day, this is because the vast majority of people that have decided that they are going to need a second source of income and are therefore searching on YouTube for these people’s videos are probably around about middle-aged, probably have children or other dependents and probably have a job, you can’t quit your job, this literally something I wouldn’t suggest although it does seem to be the basis for the amount of time that these groups suggest you can spend pursuing your business ideas.
The People trying to make it
The people that are trying to make it however, are an interesting Bunch because these actually fall into two subgroups there are the people that are genuinely trying to make it and the passing on information as they go, and there are the people that know they’re not going to make it however, they are still looking for that YouTube Fame that ultimately they believe will provide fortunes, we all know about Ryan’s toy review and we all know that it potentially brings in millions each month, that isn’t going to be you and me, it is a harsh lesson to learn, but it’s something that you need to pick up on now and get over, so whilst again not all these should be viewed with suspicion the fact is you need to have a good look at the videos, if you have videos that have a constant background that’s usually got a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or something else in it it never seems to move the chances are it’s a blue screen and it’s been fake, one of the things the internet has provided to a lot of people is the ability to manipulate their audience into believing of variety of things, what used to be the exclusive right of TV and video and film was the ability to have blue screens have sound over the top, it was a world of make believe, these systems and software abilities have now fallen through to normal people and by normal people I mean that are not in those Industries, I’m not saying their advice isn’t worthwhile what I’m saying is be careful of somebody who is trying to tell you how to make money when they haven’t managed to do it themselves.
The people that are never going to make you usually the ones that shout the loudest, usually the ones that are pulling down other YouTubers, other entrepreneurs or shouting about how their scheme works better than everybody else’s, they can make you $1,000 an hour by sitting around and doing nothing, here is the best piece of advice anybody can ever give you, there is no thousand dollars an hour by sitting around doing nothing, you have had to at least put into major work previously to the sitting around, in order for that to happen, the biggest annoyance and the one that I believe you should take into consideration with these people, is that the one thing they are doing is they are wasting your time by making you watch the video to the end just so that they can get there six or seven advert breaks in between and try and get you to watch it off an advert so they get paid.
The conclusion in this case, is actually fairly simple whilst I have waxed slightly lyrical about my disdain for certain people within the industry what I really want to do, is to pass on the stuff that I am learning as I go, genuinely, the company that I am trying to put together GFPharma, is a genuine company, I have sourced genuine good quality products in order to promote and sell, this is not to provide a training course for people to learn how to market stuff it isn’t to provide some kind of YouTube presence that provides me money, so am I going to put adverts on YouTube videos if I do some? of course I am why wouldn’t I? and if you don’t put them on yours then well you missing a trick, my point is is there are certain people that like to keep these things a mystery and I’m not one of them, the internet is a huge huge Market Place there is enough room for pretty much everybody, as industry shifts times change people gravitate towards different Industries, different ways of making money, different employment, the internet is the one thing that will move faster than society, all you have to do is keep up, if you do that you will find a way to make a very comfortable living for yourself and your family that will help to support you during old age.
So in a previous post that can be found here I presented a video from a YouTuber with the amazing headline “Make $100 in five minutes” and set about seeing if this was actually the case, there are two parts to the results and a rather sad and cliche ending to the video that he hasn’t even taken the time to remove the comments about that are underneath the video.
For your reference this is the video in question
Currently he has 130k subscribers and runs ads on his videos, so we know he is getting paid, but what about us? what about the reason you watched the bloody video in the first place, well no you are not going to earn $100 in five minutes, without spending some money and having a great amount of luck.
The process is simple you go to a site like Fiverr.com and advertise your services for a wide range of professional people to come and pay you upwards of $70 and $100 for providing them with a quality video advert or a video logo, and you will do this on https://quickengigs.com/ which is the same idea as Fiverr but has (according to our host) zero competition, however on first inspection it also appears to attract zero customers as well because try as I might I could not find a single GIG with a rating or a number of orders associated with it, the first page on fiverr has GIG’s with ratings into the hundreds whereas on quickengigs there are literally zeros after each person, it is as if they have bought the Fiverr site as a whitelabel and just forgotten to promote or launch it, however I have no experience with the site so I will not pass judgement.
So let’s move onto the theory behind the opportunity, well the idea is simple, you advertise that you can do video editing and set a price, say $100 and then just wait, on somebody taking you up on this you would go to the following sites.
https://videocreek.com/ to make your logo / intro, then you simply deliver these to the client (or string of clients) and all is well.
There are several problems with this, the first and foremost is I do not see why you would not use Fiverr this other site just seems to have no traffic, in fact from the site http://www.siteworthtraffic.com we can see that it is worth next to nothing.
As opposed to
My second issue is the complete omission that this will cost money, I have no idea where he thinks the customers will come from but they are not going to pay $70 for a video that is of poor quality and has a watermark in it, and that is what you will get for free, these places are out to make money and they will not give away a saleable product for nothing, in the case of videocreek for instance, it is free for a 240p video with a watermark in it and then $7.99 for one at 720p and $9.99 for 1080 both with no watermark, bear in mind that the majority of times the customer will require a first draft or a proof of concept before paying for the final product, this could get expensive 3 or 4 revisions down the line.
That being said I have to say that on the face of it the two websites that were mentioned to provide the content looked really easy to use and seemed to be capable of producing very high quality end products, I have no doubt that you could quite easily make a reasonable living on the side with this and a bit of savvy as well as a bit of time to let the money build up through sales.
But I would definitely not follow this video as it absolute rubbish, completely and idea that he has thought up and made a video of to get to his real sell, the fact that he is involved in a funnel scheme himself! oh the irony, the hope is that once you see how good the idea is that you would be enticed in the $10,000 a month from the scam funnel underneath the thinly disguised affiliate link.
Utter Shi* avoid like the plague, this is a good and proven business model on other platforms such as Fiverr but you will need more than the 127 unique visitors to the site to get any traffic, laughable to be honest, but try Fiverr, and think through what you are going to do if you are good enough you can easily take some of the money being spent there.
As this continues we have started to see (and I suspect will continue to see) the true nature of mankind, the underlying motivation in any society would appear to be one of greed, and at a time like this it seems incredulous to me that as a race we appear to still be looking out for ourselves, companies rushing to find ways around the restricted opening, looking to still sell as much as they can to a population that have nowhere else to go right now, here’s the thing, if there is nobody left to spend it then money is wallpaper and nothing else! you see money and wealth are not mutually exclusive, although we are taught this through countless morons on social media, making money from using whatever they think they can sell, and of course the powers that be want us to equate the two as equal as well as it serves their purpose, after all if you have lots of money then you are wealthy right? no, No and F**K NO,
It is not only perfectly possible to have money and be broke as well as have no money and be wealthy and in fact in most cases that is the status quo, think I am talking rubbish? think about it, how many people living lavish lifestyles actually have money? the vast majority of them are living with eye watering debt and yet they live lives of personal Jets, Yachts, huge houses and extravagant vacations either to elite destinations or in some cases destinations they own, and the reality of it, none of it is theirs, they have become what the Mafia refer to as “A good earner” that is to say their debts are so huge that they never repay a single cent or penny of the original sum, simply the interest they have become essentially an investment by the bank and a dividend payment at the end of each month, if they screw up then they lose all the loaned goods and lifestyle and the bank moves onto the next entrepreneur.
During this time there will be job cuts, people will lose their livelihoods due to the chaos that is going on around us, and they will find it difficult if not impossible to find another one in a short space of time, after all they can’t even leave the house to attend an interview!
Stuck in a mountain of debt this is where the lesson will be learned that human nature is to cut loose anything that is no longer profitable and ignore it till it goes away.
What then ?
Well the first instinct is the emotional response that sends most people into a pit of either saturated fat or alcohol self pity, but there is nothing to stop you from taking action and becoming the top of the pile, hell if you make enough noise the people that turned their backs on you will come running again you’ll see, whatever you did, whatever your shape of cog within the machine of the larger organisation is your way to work yourself back up the ladder, you can start a business, because now you have nothing to lose, if you are already in debt and you have been cut loose by a company trying to save money in this time when we have a global need for stability then you will eventually lose what you have anyway, so if all is lost then why not gamble what you don’t have on a future a million times as bright as the one you have now?
I want to wish everybody around the world the best of luck with this because that is what we are going to need, my whole point is that although your landscape may be changing every day and seeming to just get darker, with the right motivation you can turn the tables on the establishment and secure your own seat at the top, there is shameless display of profit over human life evident in most quarters of the globe, maybe your empire will change that and value your fellow human.
So you are stuck inside and you think this could just be the best time to start an online business, after all amidst all the stock market strife that is happening right now Amazons share price is $1,846.09 and although it has dropped 34%at last market close that is still the dream, to be as wealthy as Bezos and live a life of luxury, it would appear that that tide of inspirational videos and ways to make money online just keep coming in from the well shot polished video with some royalty free music in the background to the simple video shot on a white background to keep it “real”, there is something for everyone, but bear this in mind, all the time you spend watching these videos is time you are not spending doing anything about it, I am furious, literally beside myself with anger at the way the vast majority of people on these channels seem to think I have an endless amount of time to listen to the same piece of advice over and over again to different music and of course different adverts running in the background, a lot of the claims however have been reduced to $100’s a day or week instead of thousands, but this is still bullshit, complete and utter bullshit.
I don’t want to become a person who just sits at home calling out these leeches but somebody has to because you can literally spend hours watching this tripe with absolutely no beneficial effect, the aim with the clickbait headlines is to get the ad revenue everybody wants to be pew die pie, but guess what it ain’t gonna happen.
Really unpopular point #1
You cannot cannot cannot, make any serious kind of income in a small amount of time each day with the majority if not all of these schemes. are you familiar with the old low cost high volume business model ? that worked because you could sell thousands of individual product at low cost and make money due to volume, bear in mind that every time you go down the rabbit hole with one of these schemes itis the same model, except that the product is your time, and there isn’t thousands and thousands of hours out there, so no you cannot start or run one of these in your spare time, cos you won’t have any, or have any money either.
Am I talking rubbish ?
I hate hypocrisy so I am going to test my theory, below is a linked video that claims I can make $100 in 5 minutes, by yet another millennial success story that went from serving burgers and fries to people through a hatch to being worth nearly half a million dollars, I am going to follow this video to the letter, and see if we can get $100 a day, if we do all well and good, if not then it will be added to the rogues gallery.
Please Please Please
If you try and get better or worse results with this or any program on my site then let me know, leave a comment and explain what you did different and we can compare notes, learning is the most important thing. my point is that you have to choose very carefully what you learn.
I really want to be wrong honestly I do, but the only way to find out is to start so that is what I will do, dissect the advice on each chosen video and follow it to the letter, wish me luck.
Popular culture has told us for years now that we do not have to be the best at what we do or strive to do, our education systems have largely developed a process by which the class progresses at the speed of the slowest pupil, this is has resulted in over inflated school ratings as the overall bar is lowered and a decrease in specialist subjects being taught at all as they give way to more general subjects that are harder to grade effectively as the factors for evaluation become vast through diversification of the subject matter.
But who actually suffers from this new way of working ? the educators and the governments around the world will have you believe that it makes for a more level playing field, that this kind of broad baseline teaching provides all pupils with the same opportunities, but the reality is something quite different, you see by creating an environment where everybody is taught at the same level in the same way with no recognition of aptitude does not create a level playing field rather it holds back the pupils that would excel and invariably gets them the reputation of troublemaker as boredom sets in, or it highlights the shortcomings of pupils that haven’t got an aptitude for the subject in front of a jury of the cruellest peers, children, so you can see how this is detrimental to both parties, the children that are bored have their future coloured by the term troublemaker, and are treated accordingly and the struggling kids start to lack confidence and become either shy or overly overt as a compensation, both scenarios achieve the exact opposite of the intended result.
This is largely a product of lack of money in the system, and in most cases a spin put on that lack of funding by governments trying to juggle ever decreasing budgets and ever increasing debt, but the irony here is that a countries wealth is a product of it’s population and it’s capability to participate on the world stage, so effectively we stay in a loop forevermore where we do not invest in youth to provide a better future for all, instead we choke the education system and make the youth fight for a future that is uncertain, and we wonder why they lack motivation.
This level playing field extends into adulthood as well, the evidence is excessive, people that did not do well at school becoming billionaires such as Sir Alan Sugar, 1 GCSE and he is worth 1.4 Billion, Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school initially, Deborah Meaden of Dragons Den fame left school before her A-levels and is now worth over 40 Million, and Sarah Millican Failed hers, what sets these people apart is that they pursued what they wanted to do and they did it with a goal in mind, to be the number 1 in their chosen field, now with the vast majority of these examples it could be argued if they are number one in their fields, possibly some people might not find Sarah Millican funny, or there may be people with more money than Deborah Meaden, but if we think about it we would all like to be a pound behind them, or make it as a performer, we just had it beaten out of us in our youth.
That is why I say you DO need to be number one, in your own mind at least, you need to strive everyday to be number one at what you want to do, because if you don’t believe that people in most cases excel at what it is they want to do then just Google around for a while, in fact very few of the most successful people in this world have got a strong academic background, that is not to say that academia is worthless, far from it, the world runs on the work of academics, and without them we would still be in the caves trying to get a fire going, my point is that equality is not only a good thing to try and achieve in society but the only thing, we just have to remind ourselves what it actually means.
Equality should mean the opportunity to excel and be successful, to not live a life in fear and poverty, to not eek out an existence daily just waiting for the cold hand of the reaper, it SHOULD mean the opportunity to live a good and happy life regardless of age, race, religion, ability or sexual orientation, and I think that as a society we have forgotten that, we need people to fall within a budget or a qouta, and the only way to make people fit into statistics is to manipulate the system until those people appear, the fact is nobody is going to do it for you, if you want the life you see when you close your eyes at night you are going to have to fight for it no matter what that takes.
So that is why I say that you need to be number ONE in your own mind that is what you are striving for, don’t look at your heroes and claim that you can’t get there because they have a natural talent, don’t let yourself off the hook by saying they are just better than me, substitute Talent for Aptitude, and Better for More Hardworking, to say that a person is a NATURAL TALENT is often to negate the huge amount work and dedication that they put in everyday to get where they are, and if you put in the same amount of work everyday you would get there too, the education system may have failed you (it equally may not have failed you too) but if you want greatness stop the excuses given to us by a society that has lost it’s ambition, and drive yourself to be Number One at what you want to do, and you will find happiness, some careers are better paid than others and some jobs too, but I promise if you are the best at what you do, at least within your peer group, then you will find a happiness and a calm that goes along with doing something you love.
