Income For Dummies

I am subscribed to very few lists now, but the ones I do read often send great information. This is one of those most excellent ideas. I wish I could take credit for writing, but I guess I will have to settle for only taking credit for sharing this:

      IDK either for most of them, but this one comes from Steve Pavlina.

      They probably have a program that invites persons in respective fields to write about the respective topic and plaster the "Dummies" brand on it while the For Dummies handles the marketing aspect of the book/manual.

      I wouldn't do that just yet! There is know reason that you can't do both for now, once you have reached a point where you feel comfortable enough to quite your job, do so.

    That was #2, and it is spot on! Thats why i decided to be my own mechanic instead of being a wage-cranker.

      I don't know Steve Pavlina, the author of this article from 2006, personally and I am not sure he sells get rich quick ebooks, I see there is a link to site-build-it at the bottom of this article, but i already know how to build sites, so that was not of interest to me.

    The article is on point about the conditioning of individuals to only think a certain way on how to earn an income. Once they are conditioned to think that way, they become a small part of the machine in which the big players make all the money from their labor.That is why, to be successful, you need to start thinking outside the box.

    There is no one correct way to make it in this world. And there is no vast conspiracy to get people to fall in line and work for The Man. Countless people have been through this "conditioning" yet start their own business.

    As with anything, there are pros and cons to working for yourself. How many times have you seen an article include both the upside and the downside? You don't see that because explaining the downside doesn't help sell ebooks.

      Thanks a ton for sharing. Nothing else resonates more strongly with my thoughts and I'm sure, this is the one cause which unites most, if not all, warriors on this forum.

      There are no pros to selling the one thing you can't buy back - your time.

      Even if someone needs the conditioning, he/she should understand the right way forward.

      Of course there are pros and cons, the article is something to discuss, not the gospel. There may not be a group of people who are in charge of deciding that everyone should go to work and get a good job, but there are plenty of people willing to tell you that is the only way to live in our world.

      Lots of authority figures, parents, teachers, officials, all willing to tell people there is one best way to live and that is by working for someone else. Lots of people have jobs and like them and don't want to live any other way. that is their choice. Lots of people want to work in their own business and that is their choice. I've done both, and sometimes both at the same time.

      And let's face it, this is the Warrior Forum, people get all breathless and sweaty about WSO's that sell Buy buttons. Making a choice in your life about how you are going to make money deserves at least a modicum of consideration.

    I know a guy in his 20's who has NEVER had a job (he's doing what most of us here do).

    And I quit my job at the beginning of the year. Like my friend I can live anywhere. And it's now Monday morning and I still have the whole week to do freaking awesome stuff.

      Way cool, Brett.

      Working for yourself might not work for everyone, but when it does, it is a most awesome feeling.
