How to Make More Money
I have a friend who is a wealthy conservative and we often have heated discussions over politics, primarily because I like to play Devil’s Advocate.
I’m sort of a pain-in-the–ass that way.
Anyway we had this big debate over the F-35 fighter jet and I believe I had finally convinced him that it was a money pit when he switched the topic from military wastefulness to the continuing problem of high unemployment.
Because I admin The Underground College and finding ways for people to become more valuable in the marketplace is primarily what this website does, I was willing to make the switch.
I should have known it was a trap, that crafty old buzzard!
Once I agreed, he smugly rattled off statistics from the Department of Labor which did a survey to discover how many of those filing for unemployment made any effort to learn alternative ways to make money. Meaning did they go to the library and take out books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and follow his program to become financially independent.
The answer was it never occurred to them.
And that’s what has become of us. We have become so engrained in the get-a-job-and–work-for-someone-else culture that striking out on our own is rarely considered.
And I count myself among them. Up until the last time I was laid off, my first and only thought when I was shown the door was to find another job in another company.
Looking back I wonder what the hell I was thinking! For 10 years I would wake up, take a shower, drive 50 miles, often in brutal north-country weather to my job, work eight hours then drive another 50 miles home in rush hour traffic five days a week!
And I assure you that I was no exception. I am sure many of you reading this blog endured or are still enduring a similar regimen.
And friends, that has to stop.
If you’ve been following this blog you know I’ve been going on and on about how the mid-level worker is being phased out by emerging technology. So instead of bemoaning cruel fate, we have to start learning how to make money on our own.
I do it. In fact, all the money I make is made by selling the products I have created. And believe me it wasn’t easy, in the beginning it was very hard because I had no idea what I was doing but I persevered and at long last I make enough money to pay all my bills without ever having to leave my house.
And I strongly suggest that you start right now.
Step #1 Read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This book was first published back in the 1930’s and still out sells just about every other book commercially available with the exception of the Bible, A Tale of Two Cities, the Harry Potter Series and the Di Vinci code. It is the Rich Person’s Bible. Want to make money? Want to get rich? Then get a hold of a copy of Think and Grow Rich and STUDY IT.
Don’t just read it. Consider it a vocation. Master it like you would a musical instrument. It’s available in any library for free and it may very well change your life. However, you’re likely to want to own a copy. Because once you start getting into it, and see how valuable it is, they’re not going to be able to pry it from your hands. So here’s the Amazon Link to get a copy:
The next book you’ll need to get is one I wrote it called The Best Book on How to Make Money Online: A Step by Step Guide. And what it does is teach you how to take all the information you received by studying Think and Grow Rich and put it into practical application on the internet. Here’s the link:
And the book you’ll need to make it all work is The Ultimate Sales Letter by Dan Kennedy. The reason you NEED to read it is because this man is the master of creating a super effective sales letter. Corporations pay him millions PLUS royalties for the sales letters he writes for their products and in this book, he explains exactly how he does it.
I personally have all three because I often refer to their teachings when I’m launching a new product or service. The point here is you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. It is as simple as this:
If you want to make money without having to work for somebody else then these three books will teach you how to do it.
So, that’s it my friends. People keep telling me I’m so lucky not to have to get up early and trudge off to work. But I’m not lucky. I didn’t know about Think and Grow Rich when I started my company. Knew nothing about how to make money online, spent YEARS learning how! And had no idea what The Ultimate Sales Letter was or how a well-crafted one can make whatever you’re selling fly off the shelves.
But now YOU CAN! It’s as easy as ordering these books.
