This is a little scary, especially when you see how it is already going for some countries in Europe.
The US Dollar and the European Union’s Euro are fiat currencies, meaning that they have no intrinsic value and are not backed by anything that has intrinsic value. They have value only because the respective governments declare that they do. Fiat is a Latin word meaning “let it be done” or “it shall be.”
All fiat currencies throughout history have failed.
I often hear my Dad say that he cannot afford to retire or that he cannot afford to live past 85 years old.
That’s really sad to hear from someone who has worked and saved their whole life, earned a pension, and invested in their 401k. He’s done everything exactly as he was supposed to, as we have all been taught.
My Dad is an accountant. He knows all about saving, investing, and forecasting his money. That’s how he knows that he only have enough to live on until he reaches 85.
Before the economy became a problem, the news stories were about how health care is too expensive and people cannot afford insurance. Now that the economy is the top story, even more people are unable to afford health care. Do you know people who are in this position? Are you concerned that you could face this before the economy recovers? Would you be interested in a solution?
Have you heard of Bob Proctor? Whether you have or not, he wants you to be rich.
I have blogged before about affiliate marketing programs and a great opportunity arrived in my email this week. A couple years ago Bob Proctor got together with Jack Canfield and Rev. Michael Beckwith, 2 of his co-stars from The Secret, to create the SGR Program. At the time it cost $2,000 and shipped with a whole bunch of stuff in addition to the real content. It sold very well.
How much money do you want to make this year? Do you know how you are going to do it?
My wife and I spent some more time with Live Out Loud for training on their affiliate program (which pays very well if you are looking for a cash machine). One of the things we came away with is Loral’s process for revenue modeling. It is a very simple process because you want to quickly figure out what you need to do to meet your goals then get busy doing those things.
There are two things you need to create a business, a product or service, and a marketing plan. Affiliate marketing lets you shortcut your startup time by allowing you to plug into somebody else’s product or service, and so far all of the affiliate programs I have found are free to join. All you have to do is drive traffic to their website and they take it from there.
You don’t really have to worry about a marketing plan either because once you have directed traffic to their site, they have all of ad copy to promote the product already in place. All you need to be concerned with is directing traffic and collecting a commission, which is usually a percentage of the selling price.
Last time we talked about how a “job” is a dead end. JOB = Just Over Broke. The problem is that your income is ultimately limited to the number of hours in the day.
What else is there?
There are three broad categories of ways to make money. The first is to trade time for money, or have a job.
