Podcast: 1/5/2019 – The Price of Freedom

In this podcast, I discuss the cost or the price of freedom.

The old axiom, “Freedom isn’t free,” applies here! What I focus on in the podcast, however, is determining what your idea of freedom is, your definition and what it will take to achieve it.

When you are looking to do something “different” then you are going to have to figure out what steps you need to take in order to put your plan into action.

You are going to have to invest in your plan (the price) to achieve your level of freedom.

If you take nothing else away from this podcast, please understand that the first step, as always, is to take action…to do something towards your goal.

Podcast: 1/2/2019

This is a follow up to the blog post “Sheeple” Are you a part of the Herd?

“Sheeple” Are you a part of the Herd?

Sheeple, sheeple everywhere!

What is the definition of “sheeple?”


plural noun: sheeple
people compared to sheep in being docile, foolish, or easily led.

Also found a definition from Google and that goes something like this:

Sheeple is a derogatory term that highlights the passive herd behavior of people easily controlled by a governing power which likens them to sheep, a herd animal that is easily led about.

I know that most people have heard of the term sheeple…obviously referring to a herd like behavior of the human population to sheep…sheep led to the slaughter so to speak.

I’ve been involved with income generation from the Internet for a number of years and have had my own personal agenda for wanting to do so.

At 52 years of age, 53 in April, I have become increasingly critical of the “average” or “normal” citizen. Personally, I’ve never wanted to be normal or average.

I suppose you could attribute my jaded attitude to just plane growing older, but I have always been the “black sheep” of the family and typically of most of my peers.

Always questioning things, from religion to politics to the acceptance of normality…whatever that means.

I have also been the type of person that would rather have his own business than to work for others.

So when I first heard this term “sheeple” I laughed. After I laughed, I thought the term was perfect for what it was sarcastically being attached to.

Sheeple. I still laugh, but I digress.

One of the reasons why I have ALWAYS thought that generating an income with the Internet has to do with my own personality disorder, which I refer to as freedom.

Yes, folks, I’ve always been seeking freedom (as I define it) and to obtain that goal I thought that creating an online presence and an online income would be perfect for creating a lifestyle that I have always thought would be fantastic.

Baaaahhhhh, baaaahhhhh

For me, being able to travel the world while making a living online would be the ultimate form of freedom that I was searching for. Essentially, I could do whatever I wanted to do, camp, travel, work on my hobbies, scuba dive, snow ski…you name it…and still generate an income online as long as I had my laptop and an internet connection.

To me, this is still the goal.


So, I still have quite a problem with people that think that somehow driving in bumper to bumper traffic to get to a building to go to work in, working with people that you aren’t really interested in working with and dealing with bosses that may not be the best to work for.

I just don’t get it.

Baaaahhhhh, baaaahhhhh

Why do people get so upset over possibly having to work 3-5 years to achieve a six-figure income when, if they go at it like everyone else (ya know…the other sheeple), it will most likely take 40 years and they may or may not have a six-figure income at the end of it? And that seems preferable, why???

Seriously, people need to figure it out.

But for some reason, they can’t.

It would seem that the people, or sheeple, would rather work the 40 years building someone else’s vision and dream than work an extra 15 to 20 hours a week for 3 years building their own and this does not make sense to me.

This can’t be right!

Baaahhhhhh, baaaahhhhhh!

Alas, the data would seem to support that conclusion.

And while it may seem that I am anti-job, I am not. As a matter of fact, I think having a job is an absolute must and the first step towards achieving your own financial goals and the ultimate goal of freedom.

And if sticking with that career, advancing to a point where you achieve your own goals, if that is possible, is perfectly fine as well.

The issue that I have is that approximately 70% of all employees out there complain about their situations, but when offered a solution prefer to continue down a path of complaint and apathy rather than do something about it.

And that may just be how it is.

Baaaahhhhhh, baaaahhhhhh

That has been a difficult pill for me to swallow. I have had the mentality for so many years that all that people needed to escape the herd was a good plan and the help and support to achieve that plan.

Today, I am not so sure that is the right perspective to hold on to. It is extraordinarily hard to help people that refuse to be helped. It appears that much of the sheeple herd will follow the Judas lamb to slaughter, perhaps complaining along the way, but following none the less.

It seems that there are a large number of folks that, as long as they have their TV shows, their 2 or 3 week vacations to escape their station in life for the moment, all is well.

Baaaahhhhh, baaaahhhh

So for the other 30% out there, especially those that are still in those jobs that want something else, those of us that have broken free of the herd, or are at least working towards that end, are here waiting to lend a hand and we will be more than happy, even excited, to help you negotiate your way from the sheeple heard to something greater.

A Pyramid Scheme, Really?

Today is the last day of 2018 and of course, once again, I have to address the whole “Pyramid Scheme” and “online scam” BS.

Why BS?

Let’s look at a typical organizational chart for a traditional company.

Traditional Organizational Chart

That is what a “Pyramid” looks like and as far as I’m concerned, that IS a pyramid scheme.

If you want to see something really funny…I found a video that I thought was pretty good from a while back. Click HERE to access the video!

Check out today’s podcast to listen to further rants about what I think of a “Pyramid Scheme.”

Podcast: Is Making Money Online Really Easy?

Easy Online Income Generation – True or False?

First things first…

If you want to skip straight to the podcast then go down to the bottom of this post and download the podcast…and have a great day!

Same thing for the video that I made during the podcast. You can access that by clicking HERE!

With that out of the way, the question remains; Is there really a such thing as “easy online income generation?”

The short answer is yes, it is easy.

The problem is, as most of you know, I don’t like the word easy because, to me, it evokes the idea that all you have to do is push your “easy” button and all will be done for you and all that is required now is for you to walk out, open up your mailbox and viola! Cash!

Look, for me and my perspective, generating income online is not difficult and is quite simple.

To me, that is easy.

It does not mean that there will be no work or effort applied, it just means that it really isn’t all that hard.

The Secret to Online Income Generation

Now that I have made that statement, I’m going to give you the keys as to why I think generating an income online IS easy.

The secret is:

You identify the audience that is seeking what you have!

Simple, right?

Well, I have to tell you right now, that conducting the research and discovering your target audience is the number one reason for online success.

Failing to identify your target audience is the number one reason why most people will fail.

You can listen to whatever “guru” you choose, but in the end the real secret comes down to finding people that want what you have.

Think about it, how hard is it really to sell something to someone that already wants it?

I mean, unless they really can’t afford it, they are probably going to buy it.

So why don’t they?

If you are providing the perfect answer to a prospect’s challenge and they still walk away, you can’t take this personally.

Chances are, that you haven’t yet connected with that prospect or they need more time to see if you walk the walk…


…they are the type of person that just has to think about any decision for a while.

And that’s find. It doesn’t matter what the reason is.

If you learn how to do things correctly, you will have a chance to promote your business, product or service to these folks at a later date.

We are playing the odds here folks and odds of making a sale are so much better when you are selling to a group of people that have expressed an interest in buying what you are selling.

But back to the main point of this post, as long as you find your ideal audience and you are promoting what that audience is looking for then you have a great chance to generate income by selling to that audience.

I know, it sounds easy and it is a little more complicated than I’m throwing out here right now, but it’s not really that hard.

Moral of the story?

Do your research! Find your audience and try to find out what solutions you have for their problems or challenges.

Bottom Line

The bottom line is this…

…generating an income online can be achieved very simply, but you have to take things one step at a time.

Doing the research and finding the right audience for your product, business opportunity or service is the first step.

Like anything else in life, you don’t start in the middle or at the end, but at the beginning.

Do What You Love

Love what you do, Do what you love

Do you ever wonder why it seems so easy for some people to achieve so much with their work, while others struggle along?

Maybe it’s the psychologist inside of me wanting to get out, but I’m one of those folks that are always interested in the motivation behind any person’s success or failure; part of that whole, “what makes people tick,” thing.

Part of the reason for my own motivation to create new, and hopefully, interesting content has to do with the fact that I absolutely love teaching people how to do things online.

Now when I say “things online,” obviously I am referring to marketing and promoting business opportunities online as well as teaching people the skills and methods that I have found that work for me.

No, I’m not the best teacher or mentor on the planet, but I do in fact love just about every second of it, which inspired me to write this article that you are reading now.

For me, if you do what you love then you aren’t working…it’s something more.

Inspired to inspire

I do not have any idea where this concept of teaching others came from, but I knew as soon as I started to do it that I was in for life!

There is just something about helping people overcome personal hurdles to a point where what you have done has made a significant impact, hopefully a positive impact, on people’s lives.

Whatever it is, for me it’s like a jolt of adrenaline! I sometimes think that I get more out of it than the folks that are that are learning how to do the thing I’m teaching!

The point is that I am inspired to inspire and help others and for me that’s a huge win!

What is it that you love to do?

Are you doing it?

In not, why not?

The other day a friend of mine commented on some sort of realization that she had saying, “Man, this life is short….too short to be working all the time just to pay your electric bill.”

I would say it’s worse when the job you are going to day in and day out to pay that electric bill is something you do not enjoy.

Life is short, ask anyone over the age of 50 and they will be more than happy to tell you how fast time flies.

The question is, what are you doing about it?

Are you going to make the next five years look like the last five?

If you are having a good time and find yourself quite fulfilled with those last five years then my hat is off to you.

However, what I have found is that most people just aren’t that happy with where they have found themselves in life. Where they are, and where you are too, is a matter of choices.

All men are self-made, but only the successful admit it – Earl Nightingale

If you want something more then you are going to have to do something more or something differently from what you have been doing.

This isn’t rocket science, it’s common sense.

Online today, there are so many opportunities that can have such a positive affect on your life, but none of them will come to you and none of them will do the work for you.

Decide what you want, a life of doing what you have to do to pay that electric bill, or a life of doing what you love. The choice is yours.

Podcast: Making Money in 2019

Generating an Online Income in 2019 – What you need to know

It’s that time again!

Time to start talking about the different business models and opportunities for income generation for the new year!

In this podcast I talk about the different business models to explore for income generation in 2019.

There are many different models that you can choose from, but the one thing that you will need more than the best business model in the universe is training and skill development.

Listen and enjoy!

In this video, and I also made this a podcast that you can download as well, I discuss the whole “Easy” online income.

Most of you that have followed me for some time know that I detest the word easy. You may just as well state that you are lazy.

What I really do not understand with most people is that while they want a business, they are still clutching to the word and maybe the whole concept of “easy.”

This just grates my skin the wrong way!

Owning a business, online or offline, is not going to be easy. An online business may be simple, but there will always be some work to be done, some skill to learn and master.

If you are not interested in building your business then you may want to look elsewhere.

Hope you enjoy the video and the podcast!

Indecision is a Killer!

Welcome to this latest podcast, one that I have been wanting make for a while now.

In July, 1984 at the ripe old age of 18, I joined the Military and one of the best things that ever occurred during my time of service was attending some of the leadership courses that I took and the lessons I learned from them.

One of the main focuses, I would say, is that in those courses we were always taught to be decisive. That is, make a decision; even a bad decision is better than no decision or indecision.

This lesson was not lost on me and translates into any way of life whether it be on a battlefield or in the world of business.

Leaders make decisions and it’s much simpler to correct a bad decision and get headed in the right direction than to look, and be, incompetent in the decision making process.

Where are your dreams?

In this podcast I ask the simple question, What are your dreams and where did they go?

This Is a particularly interesting question to me because it seems as though as children we all had many fantastic dreams and ideas of life, but somewhere along they way to adulthood we stuffed those dreams in the closet.

Once again, I’m not bashing on a job, but I do want to know why people believe that they are “stuck” living out their day to day in situations that they, at least claim, do not enjoy.
