Have a FREE $200!!! It's all yours!!

33 replies
I'm not usually one to start threads of complaint since I believe focus can be put into better things, however instead of a blog entry, where I usually vent my thoughts this one is going publically hopefully to hopefully serve as a productive piece.

In the past few months I've had an increasing number of people contact me by all the means I provide asking for money. I am not phased by the contact itself but rather the content of it.

In most cases there is no tact to their request or even an offer of a service which they provide. I'm contacted by people who are advertising themselves as writers, designers - you name it. There is no attempt to sell their services or even ask for a method in which they can use to earn their crust. Instead I receive a blunt request for money. This never fails to astound me.



The first thing people need to realize is that in order to make money, you need to make yourself valuable to provide a product or service. You need to start thinking about GIVING before you RECEIVE.


If you insist on only taking you establish yourself as a broken link in an economic chain.



Quit expecting everything for nothing and have a think about doing your bit and the money will follow. It's the most simple of principles that so many people overlook. You need to be giving something!

At risk of sounding shamanistic; Don't make the mistake of overlooking simplicity and taking it for granted. Some of the best lessons of life are presented in the most simplistic forms.


If you find yourself in desperate need of money, first ask yourself:


"What can I do?"


...then go about giving something
and your return will come naturally.

      I've never had this happen. Seems weird to me. The first thing I would do is teach them how to get the money themselves. I guess I would never hear from them again. lol but thats what you do if you want to help a homeless person you teach them how to survive.

    So...let me get this straight..there isn't $200?


    Honestly though, this amazes me. I can't fathom just asking someone for money. I am working to develop my business and I am working fiverr gigs to not only refine my process, but also generate a little working money.

      Daniel,
      And as they say, the proof is in the pudding!
      Do you realize that at the time of my posting, there have been 239 views to this post, and only 16 replies?!:confused:
      I guess most who saw your headline really thought they would come in here and literally get that $200 just for nothing! They obviously thought they had found the easy quick money, until they entered, then just left - sad and dejected, again, at the so called scam they had just witnessed. Gone off in another direction still looking for that newest and brightest shiny object.
      I am surprised someone hasn't already outed you in another post screaming about what kind of fraud you are!
      Oh, well. As is already stated, that's just the mindset of this ENTITLEMENT generation!

      My Thoughts,

      Robert

      p.s.- I'm pm'ing you my PayPal ID.!

        Indeed!

        The thread itself proved my point as Riggs also highlighted, though I can't blame anyone for wanting a free $200. It's asking for it which defies belief!

    Maybe they ask you for money because you post threads that say "FREE $200!"

    These people aren't smart enough to realise that there's a huge number of other people begging for money as well, so this 'technique' is not efficient.

    I remember reading on the news a few months ago that a couple who won the lottery had to move home because they received tonnes of begging letters.

    Excellent thread. I realize starting out it's hard to give because you're in the game to succeed and get. But whatever stage you're at, you probably know a little more than someone else. So, always be in the mindframe of giving, always. I couldn't have said it better. Just give like crazy, help out others as much as you can, share what you know with what's currently working with you. And I promise you, over time as you continually provide quality and high value to others, they will remember than and the next time when you suggest a product they will without hesitation repay the favors by signing up under your affiliate link, etc.

    I was going to leave without replying, but it seems that is frowned up in this thread.

    I didn't come for the $200 bucks, more out of curiosity, and I completely agree with the point of this post which is why I have something to offer if you send $200 my way.

    I will buy a nice bottle of whisky with the money, and then I can provide you hours of entertainment that will give you lasting memories of me acting a like a fool. You might even get a few videos that just might be good enough to go viral on youtube. Sadly you probably value your $200 bucks more than this so I am probably out of luck.

    oh well, on to the next thread.

    Asking for money...imagine. This reminds of the days when I worked in retail. Total strangers would come in and ask, "so whats your best price on this" without even really looking at the product. Drove me nuts, and my answer was always "the price you see on the tag."

    I freely admit, I would have been more than happy to get a FREE $200. Really, who wouldn't? But that people are coming to you asking for money point blank? That kind of scrambles my highly refined nonsense receptors!

    What's really ironic about that is that I know of another Warrior that has actually tried to give away money over the years and is typically met with such strong skepticism that he would actually do such a thing that he has pretty much given up on the idea as far as I know. (Now THAT was a poorly constructed sentence!)

    I wonder how long it will take for my PMs to light up with people trying to find out who I'm talking about.

    (Don't bother, I won't tell. Do enough research and you will probably figure it out for yourself)

    Haha

    It would be good to have got the money but do people really struggle that much, if you can work hard in a day job and get paid for it, then what makes you think on the internet its going to get handed to you on a plate.

    HArdword = Success!

    Thanks
