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:

    I don't know where these Dummies folks get all their knowledge. But they seem to know everything.

    "Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program. You learn how to be a good pet."

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

    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.

    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.

    Automate, outsource, scale. Rinse'n repeat.

    Thanks for sharing this. Lots of very good points on what a job is. I can relate to a number of them. Now I've got a mortgage and other responsibilities as long as a job I do find I'm more conscious of what I say at work.
    It's one of the reasons I'm online working on creating another source of income so I can leave my job behind.

    I would like to add the fact that even if you don't have a job and you are ‘your own boss’ but you are working hard far from home, this is practically the same thing as depending on a salary.

    Nothing is like working from home, and without having to deal with storage, carrying merchandise, organizing your store/office, and all the trouble you have with an offline business.

    Ya, definitely read through some of his other posts (thousands to choose from) in his archives. You will find LOTS of gold in there!

    Love this! Great advice. It hurts to trade time for money. I would much rather be in control of both, not one or the other.

    Good website. I enjoyed it.

    Now this is hitting the proverbial nail on the noggin'-even way back before I discovered marketing I knew that hourly paid employment was a big fat Con-you only have to look at how state schools are operated to see quite clearly what the game is...X quantities of Plumbers, Lawyers, Doctors, Office workers...all manufactured and tied with a bow. any training for individual thought, self directed action is frowned upon and those individuals with a spark of creative energy are singled out and marginalized-if you want that kind of a life, well good for you, but there are so many options if you just look at life as an opportunity, open ended. Great article.

    Making money is just like anything else. You have a value to share. If value is great then no problem making money. Online or offline they are tools to help you get there. Finally it all depends on what value you are offering to people. There are no secrets if all the fluff is taken out. Unfortunately our mind does not seem to accept this concept at first. Anyone who has value and meets a demand or solves a problem will be rich. Is this good for dummies? Appreciate a thought provoking creative post like these.!
