I am seriously tired of seeing more and more newbies falling for all those scams and non-businesses out there on the Internet and off it. Too many people just fall for it knowingly or unknowingly and I am surprised that they don’t seem to learn from their mistakes.
Firstly, don’t look to earn money quick and easy — because no such thing exists. There is just no such thing as “easy money”. Stop dreaming and start working. How many times will you fall for this fundamental fallacy?
Business is certainly the best way to get closer to financial freedom but then again, there are some stupid businesses, good businesses, stupid ways to run good businesses and great ways to run stupid businesses. Which one you choose is upto you but I guess you know what you get if you choose the bad ones.
Clicking on emails, typing ads, typing from home, multi-level marketing schemes, pyramid schemes, one-dollar-for-me and one-dollar-for-everyone-else-who-is-as-stupid-as-you schemes won’t make you money. Get over it.
Sell products or services. If you can’t do that, sell others’ products and services (called affiliate marketing) – these are only two things you could do in business.
Once you start making some money, put your money to work for you and that’s another smart thing to do. Again, it depends as to where you put your money.
Gambling is out; horse-betting is out and poker is out.
If you are left with your sanity after you did burn your hands in all the things I forbade you from, come back to earth and get started again. It’s OK to fail as long as you are on the right path.
Educate yourself; push yourself hard; work hard and go get some money into your bank account.
Case closed. Point made.
