Real World Education


Bookmark and ShareIn the real world Experience is king.  This is often work experience or life experience gained independently of any institution.  Hard work is the only thing that truly is respected.  Can you get things done, at work and in life, or do you struggle?  Getting a life is the ability to survive in the real world.   Usually when people get with the program and become relatively successful they will attract other people and situations that make their life better.  On the surface this is how the laws of material attraction work.  It is the difference between dreaming of a better car and making the money and owning that car or whatever.

It is important in the real world to be balanced so nothing, no person, or idea zaps our time.  Life is short, hardly a moment, so our time is extremely important.  Often people are living other peoples lives , or as slaves no matter how much they justify that.  Can you just up and leave or have you created self inflicted chains of actions, ideas, routines that are getting you nowhere?  All you really have is the moment, and this day.  Remember that no one really cares if you are successful so just be yourself first and foremost.


Many people are often overly reliant on others.  As a result they often spend a lot of money at school.  They may stay at a job waiting for a break, or are always traveling to the end of every rainbow for a pot of gold.  The real question is what can you do with your talents to make money now.  How can you make your breaks with what you have and not what someone else has.  How can you really get to where you need to go, and do what you have to do.


The term the real world often applies to a series of limitations and failures that a person experiences when they step it up and it seems like everyone and everything is against them.  This is when their unobtainable dreams fall apart and they often do what they can.  The real world causes college graduates to move back home to save money, or for married couples to take second jobs so their family has a little more money.

In the real world there is a pyramid of a capital based social status.  There is a very real caste system whether people can admit to that or not.  Often times choices on how we spend our time can impact where we fit into the scheme of things.  For example if a student spends 4 years getting a liberal arts degree and can not get a job at the end, they may have to spend another 4 years doing something more reasonable that will make them money.  This is a sad reality that most people who have any experience in the real world can attest to.

It is important that your mind and reality can mesh.  Often people are distracted by entertainment and will not invest the time to gain skills to make money which will save them time and heartache down the line.  Because in the real world unfortunately on a physical level capital equals more food, better shelter so how we deal with our life choices can ultimately affect how well we survive.

The real shift to succeeding in the real world is to be self reliant.  To create one owns satisfaction.  In the real world there is never vindication or success, there is just time.  Do you feel satisfied with what you are doing?  It is important to bring on new things and for example be just as excited about making some money in a business, getting a few hits on a website, having new experiences or making some new friends.

The people who do best in the real world can groove off of their own journey and appreciate themselves, their family and what they got.  They are also able to grow through failure and gain perspective and as a result they evolve.  Life is right here right now.  Everything is equally important as it is equally irrelevant.

It just is.

And in the real world nothing is free.

How To Use The Internet For Recruitment


Bookmark and Share
Recruitment is typically a time consuming and unrewarding process.  It is important to do your best to find the most competent people available.  Generally people who work or in business a long time have a decent radar to detect probably better candidates.  Picking up nonverbal communication is more important than what is said.  Especially when asking critical questions.  Does the speaker speed up or slow down.  How do they conduct themselves in an interview.  Make sure that who you hire makes you comfortable without trying to achieve those ends.  Generally people are not worth hiring if they can their answers like it came out of a newspaper section about how to win the interview game.  Rather people who are honest are often far better candidates than those that tell tall tales.  On the Internet there are a few basic types of prospect employees that should be avoided or atleast exercise extreme caution with:

1.  The marketer type.  These push themselves too much.  It is often an overcompensation.  They forget that they are people first.  Red flags of these people include a need to follow all of the so called rules that experts in the recruitment field wish to push.

2.  The spammer.  These types send out materials to many similar companies hoping to get lucky.  Their lack of research on your field and accomplishments is generally apparent. 

3.  Entry level person.  These green people often feel uncomfortable in the interview process.

Winning The Youtube Game Super Seo Secret


Bookmark and ShareMy sincerest apologies to people who are very successful with YouTube, please keep doing what you do.  Congratulations.  To everyone else this is probably a very profound tactic that is not much talked about. 

The first point that is always told in terms of YouTube success is video content.  If your content is good you will win.  This is not true.  There are many amazing channels creating the best content with the newest equipment and get very few views.  Why is this?  The reason has to do with how google seo cataloging of videos is much different than one might think.  A good example may be a simple google search of a video may face competition with video responses for instance and leave the original content down in the search results.  Instead do google searches on the comments and you will see that the search engine catalogs comments in my opinion far better than any video.  The moral is that if you are good at leaving comments, it may be wise to leave a couple of well placed comments that will drive social traffic both off the video and off the search engine.  You will gain subscribers and much social cred since you are both a YouTube user and video contributor.  People react to this in a big way.  If you play your cards well you will see major favors in your future.  Many people succeed because some other YouTube users prize their content, and social interaction.

(People look to forum comments for real information, not videos, blog posts, or anything else.  This is an undisputed fact.  What are the REAL people thinking.  That is where the truth often lies.)

This three dimensional approach to YouTube is how the greats succeed a hundred percent of the time.  Just do not leave a comment that you may regret later, like lets say a hundred years from now because YouTube comments are cyber tattoos and have your name written all over it.  The feed catching sites will gladly hold your comment in the number 1 google search spot forever.    Then there is nothing you can do.  This post is just my opinion based on doing some research on YouTube comments.  Thank you for reading and have a good day.

Why No One Is Talking About The 2011 Silver Crash


Bookmark and ShareThe economic problems have in a large way shifted people's focus toward some kind of crisis both real and also largely imagined.  That has been in the online world to precious metals, prepping and whatever else.  Its all going to end tommorrow.  When we get there things are basically the same.  Just a tad inflation.  The same routine.  Get up, do this or that.  Eat.  Go to sleep.  Travel.  Socialize.  Whatever.  Many early adaptors have been in the game forever for the real merits of owning metal.  Then when the fear market was in full swing from 08 to today the metals market went crazy.  Paper traders loved the hype.  They did what they do best which is make a money when the going is good.  The margin requirements changed.  The market quieted a bit.   Now we will see a return to normalcy and great buying opportunity.  It is the long tail that has been hiding amist the parabolic trend busting bubble that will emerge.  Or so I was told in a dream lol.  Lets take a look more closely at what is happening to gold and silver...

-Google is flooded with silver futures articles that show parabolic charts where silver sky rockets making every kid on earth who owns a silver coin an instant zillionaire.  Try finding any decent charts or expert commentary and the only stuff that exists is pro or anti silver.  It is hard to just get some decent information, or a chart that can tell a story.  This I believe is an information blind spot and a great potential internet market just as an aside. 

- If silver returns to the 10 year fundamental chart before the line went crazy when derivatives started playing the game seriously silver would be a mere 10 dollars today. Think about that for a moment.  Enjoy the crash because when people become disillusioned with a market TRUE opportunity arises for the shiny rock hounds !  After liquedation of paper assets, comes value in the physical market!   This is simple economics.  Inflation is ongoing and the real reason that people are looking to dabble in alternative money.  This is good.  Its a good exercise in real economics and trading.  This is healthy.  People benefit from this.  Metal is one real solution to one real problem.  That is a one to one ratio.  Basically problem solving improves thinking and soon the problem starts to become less of a problem.  So metals are really a gateway to a deeper understanding of physical economics that is alien to people who are only familiar with digital currencies.

-It is ALL a cycle. 

-History repeats itself again and again into infinite.  That is why it is interesting to learn and study.  The history books will tell us more than any person on the tv or the net.  And they are free at the library, or online.

 I have always been a believer that all things are good in moderation.  Life is a mixture and not a one solution event.  Breaking out of doing the same thing every day, thinking the same thing every day is worth more than all of the gold on earth!

Life is a huge picture.  

- For example learning another language may be equal value to a pile of gold coins to the right person. 

The open mind is what it is all about. 

 The world is infinite. 

Wealth is infinite too. 

It is in all things equally.  Balance.  Helps from falling.  Center.  Thinking.  Living.

-Sea shells were once currency as well so maybe collect a few because one day they too will enter a bull market!  In the future there will be a huge demand for seashell brokers!  I just saw that in my crystal ball.

Find new things to learn every day.  Do not get caught up in the nonesense.  Focus on what you need for your own reality.  You are your keeper. 

-I look foreword to purchasing super cheap silver again.  Its great for coin collecting

 -There is a lot of opportunity in the ashes of this hype cycle for every person who was scared off by the huge prices in the metals markets. 

Peace, keep surfing the net for info,live life, always learn from it, keep stackin', keep collecting, keep learning, keep flying, keep livin' and keep it real!

Economically Impossible


Bookmark and ShareThis world is really run by people's need to eat.  The basic needs is what drives most online business into the ground.  For example people blog or produce videos for free.  That may be good and some people just make it.  But for most people making money is extremely important in the long run.  For example a business selling gold at below the market value will eventually experience the market forces that will bring its sales to the exact value.

 This is a truth unless you want your site to be another one that litters the Internet from the so called digital gold rush.  Lets look at a basic online business.

1.  The loan process.  Most people who are trying to make the next YouTube or EBay turn to their banking friends for some cash.  Often lawyers and account types are brought in for idea protection.  This all costs money but for the big idea, that people can really feel they just go all in.  Some of the risk involves a potential dot com crash, or merely a fail in the business.  As a result most companies are charging for a service or utilizing an aggressive ad campaign to pay for the high bandwidth costs that are associated with online business.

2.  Assembling a venture team.  Getting people together in a productive way is extremely difficult.  Even more so is paying them.  In these early stages these folks may get paid in partial ownership of the company.  This can be extremely profitable considering the ability of digital media and content to divide and grow exponentially in its initial phases.

3.  Down sizing when market saturation is reached.  There comes a point when an idea reaches its peak.  For instance the active users on socials sites after awhile increase at a decreasing rate.  At this point improving the service is important.  This is why many major websites are now receiving overhauls.  Their company emerged for instance from the late 90s so many are hitting the same part of the cycle at the same time.  Other older sites are beyond this stage and are really looking to remain relevant.

4.  The end of the cycle.  Sometimes a company or service becomes obsolete.  Actually most ideas, and businesses reach this point.  The old adage goes to enjoy the profits while they are there.  For instance many sites that were huge in the 90s do not even exist today.  Another good example is that I suspect record sales are down a bit.  At some point just cashing out remaining infrastructure is important and moving foreword.  Ethically a company could pay out their holders and call it a day.

Critical Thinking: Gold Versus A Digital Camera


Bookmark and Share
We live in a world where there are millions of sales people selling us on the quick fix.  Everyone has paid too much for stuff that we do not need and these things are just cast aside as we move foreword.  We collect clothes, goals, memories, and move through life much like an actor moves about a stage.  It is really hard to see it as that because often times insignificant problems seem so real.  They often blind us from what is really important.

Most people, myself included do not give ideas and action as much value as something that someone else is telling us.  This false merit derails most people from their goals, that are many times extremely simple.  We are often forced to do things, or take on concerns that do not matter. 

The economy, global events, and fear seem to dominate the media because most people who are not doing much tend to focus on negativity surrounding these things.  There is no money in uplifting people is probably the motto of the ad agencies that shape public perception.  I was recently thinking about the gold hype.  Honestly I could care less if gold crashes or goes to the moon.  That really is not that important.  But for hypothetical reasons lets say a person buys a digital camera and invests time in the photography trade.  They gain a residual income, a skill, build a network, etc they may very well be better off than a person who spends all of their money on precious metals hoping what everyone is saying is true.  After all the net celebs telling them to buy gold were chanting the anthem behind an expensive digital camera, riding the wave of fear making money and in the end leaving their audience with the same emptiness that they started with.  Life is what we make it. If we want to be a rich business person, investor, or simply live on a deserted island, what we choose to do with our limited time is more important than all of the gold and jewels in the world that most people slave for. 

The truth is that everything is a 50/50 coin flip.  We want to compartmentalize the world into black and white categories.  Our time is more valuable than spending our lives on someone Else's trip.  Camping out and hoping a bit of gold will make our lives better when its price supposedly will get out of hand.  How many people does there need to be that will someday do what they want before people really revolutionize their lives and just go out and do it, and live it.  The ego is really a waste of our energy, and hopefully we can all find the silver lining and some real truth.  Passions and interests are not enough.  Scratching the surface we often only find the knowledge that was intended for public consumption and not some serious gems of truth. 
Hit the library and really research your goals, and find new ones.  The web is great but books are extremely crucial to life.  I am sure of that.

What are we doing now to move foreword?  What are we doing now to better our life and make this world a better place?

The Middle Finger Project


Bookmark and Share
One thing that I have noticed with most people who write a best seller book, or have a high volume traffic blog or whatever is that they tend to be a step ahead of the average person.  Many people may down play this statement and attribute success to luck or whatever.  But in reality there is generally something more whether that be knowlege or someone just not afraid to speak their mind.  Whatever be the case most things in life there is a formula.  For example if one wants to be a pro musician it may help to learn scales, chords, read music and whatever.  One site that seems to have these building blocks firmly in place is The Middle Finger Project.  Most people would have a hard time even getting that title to work, but that is precisely how this site runs.  The pillar of it seems to be the truth which is a decent line of attact in the social media market where smoke and mirrors do not do well when communication is the real currency.  Check it out.

How To Start A Business Without Money: Start A Business With Your Talent


Bookmark and Share
There are countless articles on the web about businesses that were started with zero money.  Unfortunately the only business that was created was being a pro writer, actor, web personality or whatever which is really not a true business.  It is true that many times web personalities cross over into the world of business, writers do often start their own publishing companies or whatever but for the most part these get rich quick scam articles and sites do nothing more than promote their products which do not work.  Business differs from making money in the fact that business requires physical capital like money in the form of a loan, bank transfer or whatever that builds a physical infrastructure entity like a restaurant.  For this hypothetical business one must buy the property, build the building unless it comes on site, create the brand slash vibe and have a great website that uses up to date design techniques created by a professional.  All of these things cost money but are worth the money because when solid products are compiled to create the overall business like your future restaurant chain the overhead of lets say a million bucks is absolutely worth it.  After all it is better to take out loans on something that will make money, than do it for junk like a nice car or cool clothes all of which in a years time will be worth nothing.  A business on the other hand brings in money, and real experience that can not be learned in school and is a much better use of time than just existing trying to make a buck on some no money down get rich quick scam.  Of course all of these gurus happened to be million air yuppies that can help you too.  The truth is if they have to prove that they are loaded than they have no money, that is a simple law of the universe.  In these times if people get real and begin a brick and mortar business they will see results.  If they follow all of the idiots in cheap suits and dumb slogans one may go a whole lifetime and not see true success.  Today is your day to embrace if the world of business is right for you.  If not than look to get a solid job that will put bread on the table.  At the end of the day our choices do not really matter but rather are we satisfied with our life.  For people who think a business is everything they want than have at it, if not than no one will judge you so do not let the fake people out there get in your head.  It is all an illusion.

How To Make Money Without A Job


Bookmark and Share
The biggest mistake in life is to cling to any one thing and expect results beyond the norm.  The best analogy is someone who plays the lottery every day and looses, yet still expects to win.  In our lives our time is finite, our resources are limited, and our chances are few.  It is important to pave our own reality.  Often we want something because people tell us, the TV set tells us, and soon we believe to be reality.  This is how many people become overly dependent on jobs, titles, petty power or what have you.  Just throw on a cheap suite, pretend to have money and everything will be OK.  In reality we are all 100 percent unique.  We should embrace our potential and not think in terms of numbers or pleasing others.  If we build character in our life and learn from our mistakes we can often deduct a life way that is more successful.  Whether we are taking out that loan to open a restaurant, or quit our job to travel the world the outcome matters little.  It is important to face our reality and adjust accordingly.  Most people who want a job really want the life change from the hypothetical success of having a career.  I suspect the hard work nulls any feeling of success.  What is a gold watch worth when we have to work hard for it?  The key is obviously avoiding struggle.  These conflicts can happen in our mind, in reality and often tie us up for life.  To that effect we are controlled by money.  Than there are those that run and hide in physical gold and bunkers.   The reality is that balance is more important than any one path.  If we do something and quit it is better than doing it for 20 years than wanting that time back.  That is how it works.

Website Layout

When we think of a website the most important thing is how it looks in a search engine.  This starts with words, sentences, and phrases that will both catch the eye and satisfy some need of the person searching on the web.  General words are never enough.  Secondly eye catching graphics are equally important.  Videos and photos channel people from the search engine onto the site.  Thirdly the site must have a decent layout that people can easily access all of the materials.  This is the crucial missing link that many people may need to take a second look at.  And finally how is your content achieving your goals.  Is it meaningful or just another site?  That is about all I have to say.

Risks And Rewards Of Internet Business


Bookmark and Share
I was just reading articles about owning rental property and that business and I began thinking about how online business has risks and rewards as well.  The biggest risk in online business is name destruction.  Many people do stuff online and do not realize that the consequences can be some serious skeletons in the closet.  In life it is beneficial to have as few of these as possible.  The Internet tends to store data like that.  On top of this the online world is basically designed for data mining.  Governments and other people can take advantage of your efforts.  Basically many businesses are like judo.  Someone will lure us in to take advantage of the situation.  This is life and a major risk.  But like owning a commercial real estate property we online own our sites and ideas.  These things can become toxic or a worth while investment of time for a modest to excellent cash flow.  The choice is always up to us to decide are we wasting our time or not?  That is the most important question in the world.

Help I Am Running Out Of Money


Bookmark and Share
We live in a crazy world right?  Anyone who flips on the web can get their fill of fear 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  This can paralyze people as they accept some kind of cyber collective conscienceness.  Sometimes this is all right.  Being prepared for whatever will happen in life is always better than not being prepared.  But in reality fear is a complete waste of time.  All of these people stocking up on their fear supplies will in the future be burned.  I do not know exactly why.  But you know...there is always more to life and the world than meets the eye.  That is a simple law of the universe.  No matter what happens in the world the fear mongering vampires will always be barking to the same song.  Sure the world is in decline.  We all know this.  But how can we first fix our own lives.  We must first learn to fish ourselves before trying to save the world and teaching others to fish.  If we do not work to our own solution we are effectively just creating more of the collective problem.  It is important in this world to be self sufficient financially, what we do with our time, where we put our talents, etc.  We are all unique.  Never feel pressured to believe that this or that is just how the world works.  People who feed us those ideas are similar to Internet trolls.  Just ignore the pool of bad advice and strange vibes.

It is important to fill one's life with experience.  One of these is just solving our problems.  If we need more of anything, just figuring out how to get that.  Another is just living life.  Most people for instance would be inspired and do more with their life, if they visited places like the grand canyon rather than sitting in front of their computer and eating with their brain repetitive hypothetical garbage.  Nature is simple.  Free.  And, never sells us a thing.  It only gives great things like views, food and hope.  It is important that we unplug from the matrix and when we are plugged to be efficient with our time.  Truly feeding our minds with important stuff like Robert Kiyosaki's wisdom or hope from people like Joel Osteen.

Set skills and goals.  If you want to make money some way surround yourself with people or ideas that work in that direction. 

Get out and experience the world.  There is no rule against making a real plan and doing it.  Break the paralysis today is your day.  Do something different.  Break the rules.  Take a trip.  Actually value your time and your life and you will reap rewards.

Being unemployed is a blessing and a curse.  The economic situation seems to put many people out on the streets who for a long time were employed.  Now they have the time that we entrepreneurs cherish but they dread.  People can waste their whole lives looking for work or they could do the smart thing and develop their skills so even if they do not have a job they can still make money.  There are many people out there that do not have a boss but they get by.  Some live off the land.  Others own a business.  Some are investors.  Others are solo job warriors.  We often think that corporations are the only way.  If we try to strike out on our own we feel alone.  This could not be farther from the truth but if we look to the pseudo communities around us where people are basically slaves to work, taxes, inflation and whatever else the world has given them many unemployed see no other path than education, and employment.  These are not bad paths I guess if you are into that, but there are infinite other ways.  For example a self sufficient person may pay taxes on a property by selling fire wood.  They live cheap and survive, put food on the table, and whatever.  The fact is we have these choices and freedoms at least in my country to choose a path.  Most people do not know what to do with this freedom because they do not even realize that they have it.  But we are free.  The government obviously has a vested interest in keeping people under mind control but really could care less if you and me are free.  We are just different my friends.  That is why you came to read an online business blog because you wanted to learn something.  At the end of the day no one really cares what we do even if they pretend to hate our psychological freedom.  They do not understand this.  We have choices.  We can choose how we approach obstacles.  The Internet is the best resource in the world that I know of.  If one has a problem a good year of solid online research can always solve it in my experience.  Everyone online knew of the economic clasp and they all found great solutions collectively.  If people are not tuned into the positive and fixing wavelength often we attract where our sights go.  If we look for a cure we will find it.  For example Rami Nagel among many others bring to light semi lost information.  Ideas never cure but help.  Ideas create the road that lead to life changes, that lead to a better life.  Suffering is a universal concept so I am not saying that reading some financial book will make one happy but info will always empower.  Educated people are rare, but they are not lemmings.  They do not fall for as many traps, and they are able to rationalize and learn from their mistakes.  They do not just think more work, stress and effort is the solution to their problems.  They try to fix them.  If not they learn to live with them.  See we are always trying our best but inspiration and knowledge are keys to open doors.  Often depth of knowledge is everything.  Honesty is everything.  How honest we are with our selves dictates how truly successful we are in our lives.  Goals are worthless.  Success is worthless.  Stability is worthless.  It is all an illusion.  The mind is more powerful when unlocked than anything.  This is what all ancient books tell us.  The same things.  The sameness and oneness of everything.  It is really crazy.  If you need online resources just check out the tabs on this blog that is generally just a resource with very few articles if any.  That was my plan just to amass ways to make money online.  Because when I started nothing else mattered to me.  I made some money, and you can too.  It is really not very difficult.  If I can get an AdSense or affiliate check, anyone can.  But that is the end of my rant.

Some starting points to making some extra cash:

  Are you interested in photography?  Photography and Internet business are one in the same.  Graphics and online media are everything.  Imagine a world without flickr and YouTube and the zillions of people who 'made it' on those sites.  I can't.  Get some nice equipment and fill your mind with info from blogs like Photopreneur.  I know that there is a lot of competition in the game but with the right knowledge and equipment and some big ideas you can make a living in photography.  Many do who live all over the world.

I always try to find a new online advertising company out there.  My latest find is Puxee.  Tell me what you think.  I usually use adsense but I am always looking for feedback on these links in online advertising and social media that I am always trying to dig up. 

If you are on a different level where your business needs a legit ad agency wikipedia has a great list of them!

Wikipedia has beat me to the punch but still the best way to make money is in social networking.  Check out wiki's great list of social sites. I can never hold a candle to those prose because it would be one person versus the world.  But really that is what is so right with this world the amount of raw and valuable info at our fingers.  Wow is all I can say. 

If you do not know what web 2.0 is check this out.

If you are tired of hearing about Internet marketing but do not know specifics thumb through these wiki articles.



If you are trying to break into Internet business it may help to gloss over wiki's list of computer companies.  Who knows right?

Finally I believe that random knowledge is often the best.  I have open a book or happened upon a YouTube video that provided the right info as if some invisible hand is guiding me.  This may not work for you but it can never hurt to try it right?  For me I may just randomly click an article from a wikipedia list with my eye closed or open up a huge book like the bible and read whatever book that stands out to me.  Just grab the nearest book and try this even if you have already read it.  I also like to read the ending to great books like the Great Gatsby or the Catcher and the Rye or whatever because books and reading lead to wisdom which is everything.  Our minds are computers in this reality Internet very similar to the computers that we access the Internet and start our business with.  What we do with our time and resources is everything.  If in doubt try learning something somehow.  The mind is infinitely vast and powerful.  I am not the only person who has said this or thought it.  I am just repeating what many have said time and time again.

Own Your Own Ideas


Bookmark and Share
Ultimately owning your own content is an easy way to generate traffic and success in an online blog, video, social profile or what have you.  It is easier to latch on to other peoples ideas.  But one new idea repeated over and over again in different ways is far better than using someone Else's idea and improving on it.  Sometimes we must hang on another person's franchise to learn the trade.  In an Internet business it may help to write for a local blog as a guest before beginning your own site.  Once the interest is discovered for example you may like to blog about UFOS or conspiracies.  It is then important to build the brand.  Upload comprehensive and original videos.  Write extensive info about the videos as well.  This video and commentary format is the future of media.  People like to read and listen.  Media is a game of the senses.  If you have a UFO site have some real footage of alien space craft.  Your info will generate interest.  That is the development of a niche blog.  Good content in an interesting niche always generates success.  Now you will get to the point of getting 1,000 visitors a month.  Using your intuition at this point it is important to decide whether to go on or quite and try something else.  Life is too short to hang onto failure or something that you are just not that into.  Many online success stories are from people who had been in blogs and social media a long time.  They learn the ropes, and the game.  They hone their interests and skills.  Eventually they reach a critical point where they succeed.  Getting there is not easy.  Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.  The get rich quick thing is a good marketing ploy but has no basis in reality.  The school of life and the world is our laboratory and do not let anyone tell you otherwise.  Experience is the best teacher as cliche as that may sound.  Be yourself.  Follow what interests you.  Your dreams and passions will become an amazing reality in the online world.  No economy can hold you back.  No trolls can hurt your feelings.  When you do what you love.  With your friends online and off.  This is your year.  Focus on the positives.  What do you have?  What do you want to learn?  What skills can you master or get better at?  Feel good about yourself and go for it today.  Internet business is the right thing for you.  The slow path to success is both the story of sound ethics and a deep vision.  Dream huge.  You are the next big thing.

The Mind Blowing Canadian Mint


Bookmark and Share
The great question when investing in gold and silver is what to get.  I personally get things that catch my eye.  The same things that I like now, collectors will like later.  That is using intuition to find markets.  For example I was surfing the Canadian Mint site, and the Silver Lunar Lotus series really blew my mind.  The Canadian mint is known for producing some of the most beautiful precious metal objects in the world.  I love their seasonal selection for gifts especially for myself and my collection.  I especially love looking at interesting pieces, so I can add enjoyment to my life while protecting myself from the over printing of global currencies.  Storing wealth can be a lot of fun.

Collecting Jewelry And Inflation


Bookmark and Share
One of my favorite things to collect is jewelry.  Besides the health benefits of wearing precious metals, jewelry can also be sold at spot values.  Often a fine ring for example can hold a considerable amount of value.  For example if a person needs 10 thousand dollars for something they can sell the ring.  In the mean time they can look great in their gold or platinum body ornaments.  I am personally a huge fan of southwestern artist jewelry especially the silver pieces because of their beauty and colorful earthy stones that often come with them.  Jewelry is a fun way of dealing with inflation while having a great conversation piece at dinner parties and gatherings.

The Business Of Coin Collecting


Bookmark and Share
There is a huge market for coins.  From rare old coins, to new coins collectors desire certain coins for a variety of reasons.  Coins are also collected for their bullion value.  For example I could buy the 24K American buffalo coin from the US Mint.  The coin may go up in value because of its rarity, date, minting mistakes or in the worst case scenario it can be sold for its gold value.  Either way it is a fun and beautiful way to store the wealth from an Internet business.  Consider storing some of your wealth in gold and silver coins.

The State Of Marketing In An Economic Collapse


Bookmark and Share
In some regards the economy has always been down.  I walk down the street in any major city in my country and I seem to see most people down on their luck.  They seem to do nothing powerless in the grips of a cruel world.  Many people are lost clinging to dreams and delusions in a world that differs greatly from the one that they see in their head.  The game of winners and losers draws folks into patters of working themselves to the brink of exhaustion while shunning family and friends, and watching their whole life pass themselves by in complete denial of the total futility of their efforts.  Some take to the grand injustices of the world, others blame every individual around them, whatever be the case this feeling of strandedness must go behind the curtain for awhile.  Lets just forget about our problems tonight.  The matrix does this.  We often buy into delusions of choice that are extremely bad decisions to the people who possess all seeing knowledge.  This is not what they teach you in school, at church, or on TV.  I am talking about real knowledge.  How finance really works.  Who is really behind the Internet.  What is its real purpose.  Why does the stock market go up and down?  Why do oil prices sometimes go through the roof for no reason?  This world is meant to be confusing.  It is easy to give up hope.  But many times the people who gave up were one gram of knowledge away from the truth that would set them free.  What is this truth?  It differs for ever person.  But usually it is a hard truth that can take years to come to terms with.  It is a simple truth that we often pass by.  It is something that we often roll our eyes when others say it, then decades later realize how far behind we were.  For some the truth may be related to inflation, good debt, gold and silver, religion, etc.  But the deepest truth is letting go of the illusion.  Giving into the moment.  Being happy in the now.  Really reserving judgment.  Gaining knowledge.  Growing.  These deep truths cut beyond the material world.  They are stronger than any portfolio, business, or success.  If we can not face our soul than how can we face the world.

Life Is Always Moving On


Bookmark and Share
What are you doing with your time right now?  Listening to music?  Reading a book?  Working?  Going to school?  Listening to others for advice?  Most people have an answer related to the questions above.  Sometimes it is important to set aside serious time every day for personal development.  This is crucial for success.  This may be as simple as browsing YouTube videos for content that one is not familiar with, or doing research that involves actually reading and interacting with forums rather than just digesting random info, most of which is absolutely meaningless.  This day and this moment we must always take back for ourselves.  It is time to spend time with family, friends, and grow rather than getting sucked into the trance world that exists in our head where we do things very repetitively and cyclically.  This is reinforced by TV and the world around us that really seems not to change for the better.  If we shift our lives we actually enact change on this field.  We must learn how to change what is in us to bring resolve to our problems.  People want to just accept circumstance.  I believe that is insane!

Succeeding In Blogging By Doing Everything But That


Bookmark and Share
This is a basic but true post that I feel I must write.  It will be short and sweet.  Blogging is great.  Do it.  Gain a readership.  Put your word out there.  But my overall vibe of many of the how to blog blogs has shifted away from blogging.  The advice is basically going onto other sites doing stuff and linking in from social profiles like facebook, twitter, youtube, flickr and the list goes on.  Because there is a strong realization that it is not anymore the center of the social media unit like for example YouTube is.  That is life.  That is the truth.  Now we must deal with it.  Happy blogging in 2011.

Gold And Silver A Hot Internet Business


Bookmark and Share
The general online social media world is dominated by big ideas.  When a certain idea takes shape, people repeat the same idea to others who agree with it, aka the 'fan boys' or whatever you want to call them.  One huge meme is on the subject of gold and silver.  Since precious metals are basically considered money a huge business has evolved around their sale.  People have popped up out of the wood work promoting them to hedge against inflation and other problems that we face day to day.  Their slogan is that money is basically worthless.  Society has just not caught on to that fact yet.  I personally have acquired quite a bit of these metals and other valuable things.  But I do not put all of my eggs in that basket.  The reason is extremely simple but true.  If a small number of individuals run the world and controll the markets than there is always a possibility that prices of anything can drop down significantly.  Take for example a fast food hamburger.   If I want one of these base price food items I will pay a set price for an object that is necessary.  Afterall I have to eat, and this unit fits the bill at a maxed out low price under the physical market.  If a burger is just a couple of bucks yet an ounce of gold is in the thousands at the moment any one that compares the actual utility of a burger versus the gold realizes that the burger is of higher value but is significantly cheaper.  When we further investigate the market, food is not horded after the indivdual sale like gold and silver is.  So gold is in an undervalued trend reverse bubble superimposed on an inflationary economic landscape.  I personally as a result do not see it as a sure thing as much as it is a valuable storage of wealth.  I think investing in these metals is cool.  Investing in numismatics is awesome.  And aquiring antiques and collectibles is far superior.  But at the end of the day as we aquire gold and silver it is also important that we strive for other ways to add financial value to ourselves.  Establish ways of getting many different kinds of wealth in so if gold goes back to 20 an ounce, for some unforeseen reason we are prepared in different ways.  I for one invest in fruit trees.  I can eat the food, saving me money.  I invest in water sources, natural resources, and my 'real life.'  For example doing the things that I want to do is far more valuable than collecting a bigger rock pile than my neighbors.  But the most important investment is in our mind, and that has led me to both gold and silver, and beyond.  Lets all get outside the box and not get stuck on only gold and silver.  There has to be something else out there better.  After all a chair can not be held up by one leg.  Best of luck to everyone in 2011, happy hunting for cheap gold, silver and diamonds, and peace.
