Making Money By Sitting In The Toilet?

41 replies
Yea I know, it's funny... But it's true.

Not all of us have time to learn the things we want to. I have 3 little kids and I'm trying to use every second that I'm alone and I have quiet around me.

You can make money by sitting in the toilet, and even by driving your car.

Strange huh?

I know but here's how I do it.

When you spend time in the toilet, grab yourself something to learn from.

Let it be an ebook you have, a report, or even interesting articles.

I always print out the information I have and use it when I'm "sitting on it".

Another spare time you can use to learn more new things is in your car.

I always hear interviews, lessons, and anything I can learn from. The way from my office back home is about 45 minutes that I'm driving. I always use it to learn as much as I can about anything that I'm interested about.

If you still think that it's no good, here are some of the things I learned in those empty times:

1. Copywriting.
2. HTML (everything but things that I need to work with the computer.
3. English pronunciation.
4. How to be a sales man.
5. How to build a list.

Of course there are more things but that's from the top of my head.

Conclusion:

Use every second you have to learn new things. Hearing music in your car will not bring dollars to your bank account

Cheers,

Mike G

    I will quite often take the laptop with me to the toilet, if I am in the middle of reading something interesting and the time comes..... I even use a little table up there to balance my laptop on while reading

      Im sure alot of guys have utilise their time in the toilet, and make the most of it.

      and im sure taking the laptop there could certainly spice things up

    Sitting on the toilet makes probably 0,1% of all my days activities - so i really dont see the point

    that is amazing, i should try doing that. However, i do have time to spend on internet marketing, so does this mean that we still should use every sec to learn something

    I think the intention of the OP is that we shouldn't waste time when we are trying to learn stuff. We have loads mini or micro opportunities during a day that we can use more efficiently.

      Ah yes... a quiet bathroom, my laptop and a perfectly balanced roll of toilet paper...

      I have been known to work in the bathroom as well if even to get away from the wife, kids and dog (who is always trying to lay on my laptop.)

      I also have a series of educational audios etc that I listen to during any downtime during the day, while commuting, or doing the dishes (yes I do dishes).

        Exactly what I mean. I never spend a wasted second, only in case I need it for myself.

        I have my own office but still I do like to fill every second I have with useful information that I can learn.

        I did a lot of money from things I learned in those empty times.

    I've even got one of those toilet roll holders that have a magazine rack on the top ideal for those quiet moments away from the wife and kids lol. I agree with the part of listening to training audios in the car between home/work or like me between jobs as a field engineer. Utilise what spare time you can.

    I look at it the complete other way, any time I get away from the computer, whether it's eating, sitting on the toilet, driving my car etc. I use for a break, and to gather/recoup my ideas and thoughts.

    If i didn't, then my head would explode with information overload!

    Everyone needs to have regular breaks, so I thought I was being smart by using the time I had to take out anyway, as my break time.

    It definitely helps me

      Oddly enough, it seems that a lot of my good ideas and concepts usually come to me when I'm on the toilet, in the shower, about to go to bed, or just waking up in the morning. Then, when I sit down at my laptop... my mind goes blank! lol

          If you put the seat down first, you wouldn't have to sit in the toilet.

        This is actually an established fact. Why is it so? Because subconsciously the brain relaxes as it knows that the bathroom isn't the place for intellectual activity and that inadvertently let's you think more freely and often results in creative solutions...

    Haha, this is true. I love my reading materials while sitting on the can, somehow I find it very enjoyable AND educational to read then. I think some people may be taking it a little too far though by having magazine racks next to the can (don't laugh, I've actually been in toilets that had them) I think there's nothing wrong with doing this at all, the only danger is getting too carried away and spending too much time reading on the can - again, don't laugh, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has experienced this!

        Thanks Frank, I was beginning to think that NO ONE was going to make a "bum marketing" joke. I thought I was gonna have to do it myself! hehe

        PS. The other great thing about reading IM material on the loo is that MOST of it, these days, belongs there anyway so it saves you a trip.

      Work hard at making money online and remodel your bathroom to have a bowl for every family member. Throw in a few more for guests and your set.

      Isn't that everyone's dream in life - make money, enjoy your family life AND perform necessary body functions all at the same time?

    I really wish there was an internet marketing magazine. Even though I get most of my news and information from my laptop, I'll confess to reading print on the toilet, and other places as well.

    This could mark the start of a new IM trend for those ahead of the game. Move over 'Offline Marketing' systems and make way for 'Flushed With Success!' systems (cisterns?!). Move over 'Make Money In Your Underwear' and make room for 'Make Money On Your Enamelware'.

      I actually wrote an article on "How to Make Money Sitting On the Can"
      some months ago for a content site.

      You can google it or PM me for the link but it includes ideas such as clipping coupons, writing an ebook and more

      It was written for fun actually. I have written so many articles on how to make money doing..... or ........ for content sites and for one of my websites that someone said to me - next thing you know you will write an article on how to make money sitting on the can.
      So I did!

    Hey Bev,

    You need to upgrade your bathroom.

    That is so last century.

    This is what you need:




    We have decided to go for the waterproof version of everything, so that we can get an overhead shower fitted.

    The toilet also converts into a bed at the push of a button.

    This could also handle the housing shortages up and down the country.

    One room does it all...
