While working from home does seem as the most favorable option to make money, the whole concept hides one serious threat that might undermine your efforts if you fail to take it into the account.
The one thing that home-working environment is missing is the sense of professionalism, common for more traditional setups. And that’s the problem that’s unfolding itself in two distinct ways:
It soon starts impacting the overall efficacy and work output
It soon starts generating too many distractions
We are all basically indoctrinated to separate our professional from our private. You can feel that every time you go to work. The sense is simply different over there. The entire setup is pushing you forward.
Unfortunately, that energy cannot be replicated at home, no matter how cool office you set for yourself in an isolated room. Your profit will be less than expected and possible. Your state of mind will be far from optimal!
And here is why.
First of all, when you are at your home, you feel relaxed. It’s your safe heaven. Consequently, you are missing that edge, necessary to push yourself to the limits.
As you know, it wasn’t so hard for you to demonstrate the might at your work, regardless of how much energy the effort demanded. However, it’s pretty much impossible to achieve the same at home.
Back in your home office things are different, because not only that you are missing the “feeling” but also because you are missing the boss. Suddenly, there’s no one breathing in your neck and whipping your back every time you fall in that infamous procrastination period.
Then, there’s this other nerve-racking thing about home offices…
It’s the inevitable, frequent distraction caused by your partner, family members and friends.
You are always there and in their mind you are as good as available to do whatever the hell they feel like. The thing is that, due to that same indoctrination, they can’t take you seriously. In their minds, you are fooling around on your laptop “because, seriously, who in the world can make money that way?”
That’s how everyone around you thinks – without exceptions!
Luckily, there’s a way to tackle this problem and seriously boost your productivity. You might step on few toes here and there but that’s just simply unavoidable because, once again, you’ll disturb the routine and change habits. It’s just human nature, that’s all, but things will settle soon enough, don’t worry.
Be open-minded now and allow time for your logical (slow) thinking to suppress the instinctive (fast) one.

Consider the following changes:
Lease the office space a bit further from your home address and set it up the way you like it.
It might seem irrational to spend money every month on a lease when you can do everything from your living room, but that’s an illusion.
In reality — and this is experience talking — that lease and that office will turn out to be the best moves you’ve made recently because:
A) People will immediately stop perceiving you as constantly available, and
B) You’ll get that vital sense of professional environment.
Set the working hours like it’s traditionally done in 9-5 jobs by placing the focus on STARTING HOUR.
It can be whatever makes you happy. If you feel like starting at 10 am, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t set it up like that.
Basically, the whole idea of setting the working hours just adds to the overall feeling of professionalism because “you are heading to your office” if someone asks!
The end time is pretty much irrelevant because, as you will find out if you make this transition, you’ll be spending much more time working than usual 4-6 hours, which is pretty much common for 99% of all work-from-home entrepreneurs.
That, of course, if you are pushing to make as much money as possible in a shortest time to then employ that money to work for you, as it has been originally designed when monetary system took over the world.
Just imagine how it would feel and you’ll see the perfect rationale behind this suggestion. Picture yourself walking to your office with the still warm, fresh newspaper in one hand and a coffee-to-go in another. See yourself taking a lunch break from which you don’t have to rush back because you are the tailor of your working schedule. Take the full advantage and eat something good while taking as much time as you like. After all, quality meal is an important part of the process!
While we are on the subject of being your own boss how about the blueprint for building full freedom?
Take a moment and introduce yourself to one of the most advanced personal development and business programs to date.
If you’re thinking about offering freelancing services as the SEO expert, think twice about your position on the market. In other words, think about the exact type of the services you’re about to offer to the market. Should you go with general SEO only or should you become the AdSense/AdWords expert?
While it’s mostly up to you, there are few things you should know about the current situation on the market before you decide. And if you’re already on the market, I’m willing to bet that you’ll initiate the re-branding protocol, expanding the scope of your services or, on the hand, focusing on a precise part of the market and that’s Adsense oriented websites and AdWords users.
General SEO is counting its final hours. And this is why.
Let’s say that I hire you to rank my sales page on top 3 positions for $25 bid keyword like this one: “how to build business credit.”
It will cost me anywhere between $150 and $250 and it will take anywhere from 1 to 3 months. That’s a long period and the hype for my product may be over by then.
Of course, this will only work if I:
A) keep adding few fresh pieces of content every day, and
B) have a steady and pretty much large number of visitors who are genuinely interested in my content (not that redirect stuff from snipe and similar bullshit sites).
Now, the problem with this approach is more or less obvious:
I wanna sell immediately and not being forced to wait for your results
So let’s say that I’m OK with spending exactly the same amount of $200 to push my product but I want it today. I wanna see immediate results (clicks). What I’m gonna do is this:
I’ll find a good copywriter and spend $80 for a single line of text;
Then I’ll track down the designer, provide the brief for my product, give the line made by the copywriter and pay $100 for a single Facebook ad.
Ad will be added to my ad set at Facebook, along with the remaining $20 budget with max. daily amount of $5.
Precise targeting (which is not that hard if you know your product), with the $5 per day budget will get me anywhere from 750 to 1,800 impressions, and perhaps even more if I decide in a favor or “spreading the word” option.
Given the average FB CTR of 2.3% for well-designed and well-targeted ads, I’m receiving the immediate clicks. Better the pitch, more clicks I’ll get. And if my sales page is professionally designed, I’m looking at the good conversion rate ranging from 7 to 12%.
So we used the same budget but accelerated the process. Can we save money?
Sure, because if you know how to look, you’ll find copywriter and designer for half of that money. That means much higher budget for what matters truly and that’s classic advertising.
But I know SEO. What do I do? How do I cash in on my expertise?
You merge your SEO expertise with AdSense and AdWords. This is where real money hides.
You see, AdSense is a technical thing. It relies solely on keyword positioning and pagerank. Can you force pagerank with SEO? Ordinary, yes, but in case of Adsense one has to wonder about the factors they’re using to determine that pagerank. Maybe they’re basing their decision on a number of clicks specific ad subgroup gets on a specific website? One simply cannot disregard that option, regardless of what might Google claim.
SEO in a classical meaning is useless in this case. What website owner needs are followers or the readers who stick on his content for way more than 5 seconds. That’s the only chance for some of them to click on the ad and send the signal back to Google. But that’s only a half of the problem.
And this is where SEO expert is needed
Average website owner knows shit about how it’s done. But if smart, he/she will hire an AdSense expert to do 3 things:
to dig out the most promising (optimal) keywords
to place the keywords in an optimal position relative to the ad placeholder
to adjust the content accordingly.
The best chance to have a high ranking (more expensive) keywords ads is to place the ad as closer to that same keyword as possible! Naturally, you need to know what that keyword is.
And to do that, a website owner needs someone to tell him what keyword should he optimally use in what place.
That falls in a field of SEO expertize and that’s you. If my website is completely oriented toward Adsense (as some of them are), I’ll pay you good to help me out and optimize my content in a best possible way.
Same applies to AdWords
AdSense and AdWords go hand to hand. If you’re any good in SEO and you’re looking to go pro with it, I suggest you consider licensing yourself as both AdSense and AdWords expert with the particular focus on the latter. Those are high-in-demand fields because it is not that easy to set up an efficient Google AdWords campaign for example.
People are losing money and accomplishing mediocre results at best just because they are trying to be smart about it without spending some time learning it properly. For the amount of money less experienced advertiser spend on campaigns, a great expert could be hired to optimize the campaign and bring more money (higher ROI). But not everybody thinks this way.
It’s up to you to bring the problem to them
Which means that you’ll be on a constant lookout, scanning for websites that are AdSense oriented, keep analyzing them and when you find a flaw, you’ll contact the owner/admin directly and pitch your services.
You’ll point out the problem and convince the person in charge that you’ll fix it for them.
Same goes for AdWords. You’re seeing the ads every single day and you must’ve noticed dozens that are not entirely optimized. Click on the ad, contact the owner and pitch your services. When he/she sees that you’re licensed expert, it will be hard to say no to you. Just make sure to use some portfolio examples to make your case stronger.
So…what will it be?

Is it a survey? Amazon’s mechanical turk? Affiliate marketing? Maybe dropshipping? How about Forex or betting?
Each of the mentioned options is marketed as the viable option for making money online, from the vicinity of your home office. With the exception of surveys, the undeniable fact is that they are truly the viable ways to make money online.
However, there are few problems with each of these.
Amazon’s mechanical turk is a penny-maker. For the most part and for the most people, it’s a complete waste of time.
To make good money as an affiliate marketer, you have to accumulate tremendous experience and be a natural seller.
Dropshipping, beside the essential sales and marketing skills, requires a skillful navigation through the sea of offers just to distill couple of the most reliable ones.
Forex, same as any other options trading, requires some advance financial education and natural gift for trading on global financial markets.
We don’t even have to discuss the effectiveness of the online or any other kind of betting, for that matter.
What are we missing here?
The most obvious.
What is your current, or what was your former occupation?
What made possible for you to do it?
What else do you hide? What other skill do you have hidden in your sleeve? Is there perhaps something you would be willing to further perfect or learn from the scratch?
A long time ago, a friend of mine asked me to help him build the detailed non-fiction book he intends to publish. Back then, I was a detective. More accurately, a forensic technician, working the crime scenes. My writing was reserved to factual reports and analysis. But, I had this habit, the need to be more precise, to learn every last detail of something of mine or someone else’s interest; regardless of how complex that might be. My close social circle was literally making fun out of me because my answers to even the simplest questions were more similar to full-scale white reports.
In the background, under everyone’s radar, I enjoyed writing fiction. Crime novels with surprising twists were my thing. Indie publishing came in just the right moment, a month after I finished one of my greatest titles. So, in the moment I took, what turned out to be, my very first freelancing gig, I already had couple of short novels published through Amazon.
The non-fiction book we built together was a great success. It wasn’t long before me merged our forces to build another one. And another one.
Then, one day, while going over some blogs, I stumbled upon Elance, a freelancing platform filled with clients in need for some kind of a non-fiction content. Just a perfect environment for someone with my skillset and experience. It marked the beginning of my professional freelancing career.
From that point on, the good portion of my monthly incomes, came from freelancing. The rest came from investments and, in my case, inevitable options trading.
Today, Elance doesn’t exist anymore as a stand-alone platform. Some time ago, they merged with oDesk and formed the new, massive, global freelancing platform known as Upwork. It’s the place where you can connect with the clients from all across the globe and provide them with some specific service. Services like web design; or blog writing; or marketing; or illustrations; or coding, or even virtual assistance.
Freelancing is arguably the most reliable and the most quickest way to make serious money online, from your home.
And to teach you how it’s done efficiently, Point of Sync academy, in association with the group of long-term professional freelancers, myself included, has build a completely free, advanced freelancing course.
The sole purpose of the course is to teach you how to take those first critical steps towards the full independence. Something that freelancing as the industry is enabling.
You have the unique opportunity here to learn if freelancing is perhaps a viable option for you, at least in the near future. Take a look in the world right under your fingertips.
What do they mean when they say “time is money”? Can time really make money or is it just some myth and the line we are using to get someone of our backs? If it’s reality and time can, in fact, make money, how do we do it? How do we utilize nothing but our time to make money?
In this short and concise tutorial, you will learn how, in reality, you only need your available time to start generating money. It’s been done by converting the time from being just a relative counter of Earth’s turns around own axis and around the Sun, into a real asset.
Why relativity of TIME cannot be applied in your case
While being mind blowing and interesting, Einstein Theory of Relativity is simply inapplicable on our lives. That’s because we are living in linear timeline. It’s a line that connects two specific points of your life:
The moment of your conception (A).
The moment of your death (B).
What’s relative, if we don’t pay attention, is everything between point A and point B.
And, in all fairness, we don’t exactly pay attention on what we are spending our time. It’s just slipping away until we reach the moment where we are leaving the surface of this planet one way or another.
Same negligence can be seen in a way we are handling our money. Perceived as something illusive and relative, money, much as the time, is slipping away completely unnoticed.
But, when we convert both time and money into assets, situation is changing in a radical manner. And it all starts with perceiving the TIME for what it truly is: our only real asset!
STEP 1 – Converting TIME into an asset.
You have minimum of 4 hours of available time each day. Don’t waste time doing calculation. We did that already and you can check it HERE.
What you do is simple:
Once you define your available pocket of time, take the countdown timer, set it to 04:00:00:000 and start it. Make sure it’s in your sight at all times.
This single method will trigger the anxiety and stress – your brain will start pumping additional energy into your system for you to MAKE IT ON TIME!
It’s a neat hack because, if you are set to do something in x amount of time, you need both anxiety and stress as the only true motivators. Without these two, we would be just sitting around, eating, drinking water and having sex from time to time. We are lazy by nature, that’s just the way it is.
But once our brain starts putting pressure on us, we are moving. That’s when TIME turns into an asset. You are “rushing” to finish something.
STEP 2 – Converting MONEY into an asset.
As we said, the only reason why you are struggling with money, is because you don’t pay attention. Money is perceived as yet another of those “relative” things we have in our lives.
To better understand the meaning of this, answer a simple question: How did you spend your first month in some new professional environment?
You’ve spent it learning how to use all the the tools and other assets in order to become better in what you’re doing.
However, when you’ve received your first paycheck, what did you do with it?
You picked up your buddies and went celebrating. In a process, you’ve wasted 50% of everything you’ve made. The rest was gone before the next paycheck arrived. And practically the same process has been repeating itself ever since.
You did it with tools but it never occurred to you that same must be done with money. Money, same as the tools you are using in your professional environment, is an asset. A serious one!
However, it’s never too late to start managing your money in the most optimal way.
You start with the simple exercise:
Take the notebook and the pen and meticulously note EVERY SINGLE EXPENSE in next 45 days.
Time of the expense, place, type of purchase (cash, credit card, online, classic, debit card…) – everything must be noted. If you are living in a household with few other people who share the same income(s), make sure they all do the same!
Don’t change your spending habits. Continue in your usual fashion.
But, every night, before you hit the bed, read the notes.
The change will occur on its own, automatically. In just 30 days, you’ll introduce a brand new VITAL HABIT and start changing your life.
Once you induce control over your cashflow, it’s time to move to more advanced money management.
It’s about splitting your money in several different ways, as it is precisely explained in THE SEQUENCE MASTER COURSE (a 6-module, advanced personal development and business program with included 3-stage business model blueprint).
In just few weeks, your financial situation will radically change because the money management program, explained in THE SEQUENCE, is designed to motivate you to make more money. It uses a simple neuro-hook that tricks your brain to make you more efficient in money generation.
Now, when you took some control over your life and these two most vital assets, you just have to use your TIME to make money.
It may sound odd and impossible but think about this most commonly method over converting time into money:
Picture yourself starting the website. It can be a simple blog and you are developing the content and everything else mostly by yourself.
In reality, YOU ARE USING NOTHING BUT YOUR TIME TO BUILD THE BUSINESS WITH THE NET STARTUP WORTH OF $50,000+ – if you are determined to put a lot of content on it and deploy all the marketing methods that will enable your website to start generating money.
In other words, once you learn how to make a website that makes money, you only need TIME and just a little bit of money you saved through smart money management. You don’t need thousands of dollars to start the successful online startup business. That’s just a myth.
And this is just the simplest, yet brutally efficient way, to MAKE MONEY WITH TIME ALONE!
Did you know that just one decision, you made most recently or even years ago, made the decisive impact on the quality of your life and subsequent level of satisfaction with it? It’s most likely the cause of your struggle.
The tragedy is: that decision was extremely biased. You made it under the influence of two factors:
As a result, you’re now most likely wandering around, feeling completely lost, not knowing what to do next. Life seems like a perpetual race with no obvious end line, except for one – the absolute.
You have your share of happy days, sure, but there are times when you feel like something is choking you.
The irony is that the answers you are seeking for and the unique solution are not just in front of your eyes for this entire time, but it’s most likely that you willingly chose to detach yourself from those same answers and subsequently, the solution itself.
That choice, as we already said, was made under the influence of the ultimate collective stupidity; the one that only human species is capable of.
Now, the question is: How do you want to spend your life between right now and that absolute end line?
The answer is obvious but it does raise yet another question: How do you achieve that?
Without trying to run your life or persuading you into anything, we’ll explain that decision you made. At the end, everything will start making sense. We urge you to take a minute out of life and listen closely.
I know that you’re now struggling between continuing with this, which doesn’t make much sense right now, and hitting the ‘BACK’ button. However, “this,” right here, right now, has the potential — again, if you choose — to reset everything and bring you back to the most optimal way – the way of the ultimate freedom and happiness!
Here we go.
What are the 5 essentials of our survival and existence on this harsh planet?
Just a glimpse on this list and you can understand the main business fields and predominant money generators. Each of these essentials are generating money one way or another. We can only add health thus; medicine and pharmacy respectively, yet it’s not the essential mean of existence.
In which field do you work?
Most likely in some secondary, that has nothing to do with these 5 or 6, depending on how you observe it. Your job, career or tendency, something you’ve been preparing for during your formal education, may or may not be connected with these 5 essentials.
As the result, you are struggling. And you’re struggling because, even if you do work in one of these fields, you’re selling your labor. Others are making money while you’re looking forward to that misery we like to call – paycheck.
This only raised more questions, didn’t it?
“Finish your school. Get a job. Become someone. Don’t struggle like I did. It’s better to learn some skill and go work somewhere, because that’s the security!” My dad said to me when I was a little boy. I can bet that you received the dose of this preaching as well.
My grandpa, who was sitting at the table with us in that very moment, was just listening, not commenting anything. He was looking at the glass filled with cold, white wine he made last year.
Two days later, grandpa woke me up early in the morning and said that he wants to show me something.
“You see this?” He said after we arrived at the endless fields, full of different crops. “I don’t have anything against you pursuing some career. School is good. But do consider this: while your father is busting his chops 8-9 hours every single day, being forced to spend 1/3 of his adult life at the specific place, in the specific time; obeying to the rules of someone he never met, I do this and, as you know, I don’t use the alarm clock to wake up.”
I was 13 years old back then, on the threshold of my first big decision – what high school to choose and subsequently the career. That was everything he said to me. We left for home, spending those couple of minutes of trip back home in complete silence.
I couldn’t sleep that night at all. It was like having two opposing voices in my head. One, coming from my father, a strong central figure in my life and someone who was a role model, and the other, the voice of my 62-year-old grandfather, who used to spend the bigger portion of autumn and the entire winter inside, not spending more than 2 hours per day to feed the animals.
Something just didn’t add up in my father’s concept. He was working overtime for the most of the time and we were still struggling, as the family of 5, to survive through the month. Even though both of my parents were working and receiving regular paychecks, that still wasn’t enough to move a step beyond life essentials. To make things even more confusing, I knew, for a fact, that we heavily depended on my grandpa’s produces. The biggest part of the food we were consuming was coming from the grandparents.
The funny part? We all contributed with our labor from time to time in production of all that food. Even my parents, who had jobs!
Yet, against my best judgment, I had to go through formal education. In a decision making process, law enforcement clicked in my mind and I’ve spent next 14 years as a cop, receiving paychecks.
Don’t get me wrong. That was more of a call than a job because, to be a cop, a soldier, a firefighter, a doctor or a priest, something has to drag you into it. It becomes much more than just a job because monetary compensation you receive for 14 hours straight in one day, is just irrelevant.
Here’s the problem
Even though I enjoyed what I did for a living and everybody else kept telling me how “lucky” I am to have a government job (which had nothing to do with luck but with 4 years of tears, blood and sweat to finish the semi-military high school), I was still forced to make money on a side!
It turned out that my grandfather was right, all this time!
In a process, I became an excellent seller, making money as the re-seller (try to sell $2,000 vacuum cleaner to a middle-class family and try to sell 10 pieces in 7 days, and you’ll see what I mean) and even an animal breeder (had one of the biggest fur farms in region for years). So, aside from being a detective, I’ve managed to set up several business and went online long time ago. Internet seemed like a biggest next thing with the immense potential (was right about that by the way).
But dogma was powerful. I just couldn’t detach from the “salary mentality” even though I had a clear cues that I should focus on a profit and not the fixed hourly wage.
With age comes the wisdom
Older I got, one thing became clearer by the day – if you want to be free, and I mean truly free, you have to go back to essentials. Because those were the things people need. Subsequently, those were the fields where most money can be generated with the smallest efforts possible. Yeah, just like you, I spent years seeking for the way to establish financial stability while having quite a lot of free time. After all, we do live only once and we do live for ridiculously short period of time.
What you focus on expands!
Bit by bit and I finally realize the immense magnitude of my grandfather’s words, spoken years ago, yet stuck in my mind forever. In that time, I already left the force and was set to establish the reputation on the global market as a freelance copywriter. Was probably one of the first who utilized, what is now known as, content marketing, to help sell my client’s ideas online and offline. Back in those days, we didn’t even coined the term yet 🙂
Years went by, and step by step I became a pro freelancer with the wide network of clients and had several online business up, running and bringing money on a conveyor bay. I even started playing on Forex market because it became clear that something was fundamentally wrong with the common dogma and the way I was raised. It turned out that one does not have to “work” per se, to get money. Money makes money, if you know what you’re doing and have some seed money to begin with.
Had a seed money, all right, and in time became quite of an expert in a field of margin trading, with main focus in intraday, news type of Forex trading. Just to bring this closer to you, when trend is good and you made your homework, you make couple of grands in two hours just by watching charts and news on the display of your laptop. When time comes, you execute the order and that’s it. What took 2 months for my father to “earn,” I made in 2 freakin’ hours. Funny, isn’t it?
But there was still something missing. To be honest, I was afraid of some unexpected situation that could prevent me from doing all of that. Just a simple problem with the electric grid, or my ISP, or the internet in general – and I’m screwed!
It still didn’t provide with the adequate level of security.
Then, one night, wife called me to check something. She is a smart and sexy lady, full of great ideas. Quite a generator, if you know what I mean. And this one was simply amazing. It was due to happen, sooner or later, I guess.
It took a simple, 3-minute video to finally find that missing piece of the puzzle. The irony was: It was something my grandpa was claiming all along – you have everything you need right here, you don’t have to work for someone else!
He was goddamn right! Listen to this:
1 acre of cultivated land, with brain instead of heavy machinery, generates $100,000 annually net(!), consuming just a month of dedicated work!
That means 11 months to do whatever the hell you want!
That’s right, my friend. My old grandpa, who had only 4 years of elementary school, and only knew how to write a simple sentence and execute the basic mathematical operations, made a hell of a lot more money that I could ever imagine. He was just silent about it. It wasn’t some bigger deal. It was something normal and you don’t talk about normal stuff, right?
You see, that one single, common decision you made, that fucked up your life and raised your blood pressure more than once, was to move to the city and pursue some career.
You did what more than 50% of human population did – deliberately deprived yourself from the vital, healthy and abundant source of:
And you did it just because you were raised to believe how you’re better than to farm some land like your ancestors did. Because farmers rank low on our assumed social class separation scale. Hell, even the blacksmith, who busts his back to make the knife, breathing deadly fuses day after day, is more “respected” than yours or mine grandfather who farmed the land and bred the animals.
As the result, you are now forced — under your own free will — to BUY everything. Whatever you need, you must first make money, most likely by selling your labor for fixed hourly wage, and then BUY it.
Can you see the insanity in that lifestyle? People are slamming their heads against the walls, trying to figure out how to survive in the urban center, where they depend on their ability to purchase some good, item or a service, while their equivalents on the countryside, are still waking up, making their coffees.
Maybe this was the nature of the things 50 years ago. But now, when World is nothing but a small, local market place, where you can ship whatever you want to every place on this planet in less than 24 hours, now is a different story. All you need is your brain and a small piece of land. No heavy machinery, no tremendous workforce, no working for 16 hours per day. Just some thinking, researching and a piece of land that can be cultivated!
To paint that picture better, I’ll now compare our two lifestyles, where you are living in a city, selling your labor, just to be able to buy whatever the hell I and the others like me are producing.
First of all, I made that same decision and have spent years in urban centres, doing everything in my power to bring food on the table and enable at least some luxuries. In a process I gained priceless experience and the entire set of skills, that, once combined and utilized in the optimal way, enabled me to sync with the system and live free and in relative abundance. So, it’s only reasonable to believe, that you gained the same skillset – the one we need to survive in our urban society!
This is you, tomorrow, today, yesterday, day after tomorrow, and for as long as you want, at this exact date, on the northern hemisphere:
You get up early in the morning, have a coffee, take a crap, have something to eat and off you go to a fun road trip. You are going to work, most likely on the other side of the city.
An hour or so later, there you are. Everything is ready for you. There’s enough work for the team of people and not just you.
But you’re happy as long as that miserable paycheck arrives at your bank account. You’re happy with anything you get because that same miserable paycheck is covering the debt!
You signed the mortgage or a lease. You bought the car or a monthly ticket for public transportation. You bought a smartphone and probably the laptop. You bought all sorts of clothes. You paid for maintenance and different city taxes and fees.
Then, you had to buy some food.
To be able to live, you have to pay utilities also, that are much, much higher in urban centers than on the countryside by the way.
The overwhelming problem with making far less than you need to cover your lifestyle is “solved” with different loans and credit cards – the sum of which is simply mind blowing.
But that’s OK. After all, you’re living in the city, busting your balls 9-5, Monday-Friday (if lucky), having to put up with caprices of every superior officer in your company. No problem. That’s just life, right?
When you look at it, it’s like running the rat race. No end. No goal. Only pure survival just to be able to relax every once in awhile on your sofa or at the bar (if you have some money to spare).
Now, add wife and children to the equation. In other words, multiply everything by factor 10! And do add the stress in the equation please – the one thing that’s been killing you, slowly but surely.
This is your countryside counterpart, in the same time
When brain is used in an optimal way, at least more than muscles and spine, just 1 acre of free land to cultivate may generate over $100,000 net! That’s around 5,000 m2 or $20/m2. Have this in mind during the following overview.
Let’s see the life of the one who thinks business while living on 2 acres, from which only 1 acre is used in agriculture that generate $100,000 net annually. The remaining 1 acre goes on housing, a small playground for children (soon grandchildren), workshop, large fireplace, small vineyard for personal use, and the orchard with 50 different fruit trees.
First of all, he isn’t commuting anywhere!
Second of all, he gets up whenever the hell he wants!
Sirens and usual morning commotion of the urban areas are the unknown terms since he’s drinking the morning coffee on a large front porch, overseeing the land, surrounded with the sounds of nature; most likely the birds.
Then, he takes a crap, throws couple of eggs and some bacon on a grill pan and have a nice breakfast in total peace – out at the open!
Now comes the moment when he must decide: should I take a walk and see what’s going on, or maybe I should check the newspaper first? Quite a predicament, when you think about it, right? A real issue!
Naturally, same as every other man — who is in liberty to choose — he reads the papers first. After all, it’s around 09:45, so what’s the rush anyway…
It’s around 11 AM and still nobody is busting his chops because he’s been sitting in the same place for 3 hours already, not working. In fact, he’s not doing anything besides reading and smoking cigarettes. OK, maybe some margin trading is there’s a good trend to ride. Otherwise, what’s the use of that smartphone, right?
11:25 strikes on the clock and off he goes. It’s time to start the fire. After all, it’s a beautiful early summer Wednesday, just perfect for BBQ.
Wife gets out, bringing the meat and two glasses of ice-cold white wine. It’s that great Chardonnay they made last autumn.
Around 2 PM, he sits down at the large table, together with his wife and two sons, to have a nice, peaceful lunch, out at the open.
They can do all of this, whenever the hell they want just because they worked from the mid-April to mid-May. The harvest of the simplest, everyday thing, you’re buying from time to time (if not you, then your wife most definitely), brought $150,000 gross!
What they’ll all do for the rest of this year and until that same period of early spring next year, it’s entirely up to them!
Oh, yes, they gonna spend a month on a coast. They bought a small property last year down by the sea – with cash!
One more thing: that “countryside” is just 4 miles from the urban area; the city. Oh, yes, in case you are questioning the above stated, come see me. We’ll have a nice meal and a glass or two of cold, homemade white wine. See it for yourself.
Now, I know what’s been bothering you. You just can’t think of anything that could bring such money, for such minimal efforts, on such small piece of land. Am I right?
Listen closely now…
It can be ANYTHING AT ALL. And I mean it. You see, on one side, there’s me and less than a half of population that are producing something – anything. On the other side, there’s you and more than half of population who MUST BUY EVERYTHING we produce!
Does that ring any bell?
I make, whatever the hell I want, and I’m sure that I can sell it, with ease, anywhere on this planet in less than 24 hours (but in all fairness, I don’t have to look far) because more than 3,5 billion people reside in urban centers, where they can’t make or produce anything but are forced — under their own free will — to BUY everything!
My environment = stress-free (less cortisol-caused tissue damage)
My blood work test = 100% great; no need to pop pills
Your blood work test = not so great; have to take pills to reduce anxiety, control sugar, control blood pressure, control heartbeat rate and God only knows how many more are we talking about here and we are just in our 40s.
Just because you want to live in the city and pursue the illusion known as career.
I come to the urban area every single day to have a drink with my pals and family or to have a lunch, where I’m not looking at the right side of the menu and none of us likes chicken to tell you the truth. Sounds bit arrogant, I know, but you have to realize what cardinal mistake you’re doing, day after day. Will you live to see the retirement days? We have yet to see. Will I live to smell and taste my 65th birthday? We have yet to see. But what I do know now is that you need to beg for 3 weeks of summer vacation, after you busted your balls for 6 months straight.
I can leave whenever the hell I want, wherever the hell I want, and I can stay there for as long as I want.
Because I found the way!
All I did was detaching from dogma and disregarding my assumed “rank” on a social class separation scale! Did that and as a result, I live free and healthy, which is even more important.
That’s the point of this ridiculously short life. To be free and live it under your own terms. All you need for that is open-mindedness and some brainpower.
You just gotta ask yourself: if over 150,000,000 people worldwide live free (which is 1/2 of US or 1/5 of Europe), how come you’re not among them? It’s clear that there’s something fundamentally wrong with the way you’re perceiving the system you’re living in. After all, you are the sum of what they’ve taught you or missed to teach you. Who says they were right?
At least take a minute out of your life and check what I’m talking about here, OK? Trust me, it will do wonders for you, and if you adopt what you’ll learn, it will put your life on a certain growth trajectory path.
REMEMBER: It was never about earning money. It was, and it always will be, about making money. In reality, you never had to work for someone else because system we all live in, enables you exactly that. Take a look.
Understand that here, at Point of Sync academy, we are teaching people how to sync their actions with the monetary-market system and stop working for their money. Instead, they are setting the stage for the moment where money starts making fresh money on a conveyor ball – with or without their direct influence.
Think it’s crazy? Explain those 150 million successful examples please. Explain how 75,000,000 people hold 46% of all the money we have in the system. Conspiracy? Corruption? Zeitgeist Movie theory? Think again! It’s Pareto principle all over again, where, out of those 20% who are willing to make the effort, only 2% will push to the extremes! 80% are just finding excuses to avoid some imaginable exposure in a world where only one thing is absolute. The Sequence is built on a collective knowledge of those 150 million successful examples!
Have something to add to this? Have a counter argument? Please. By all means. Every opinion counts and just adds to our success as a species.
One specific fragment of your working memory — made of couple of things you’ve picked up as a young child — is now defining the amount of your bank account(s). Everything we do, our every action, every response, is based on how our central belief system — the set of principles upon which we are living our lives — is built. Something that’s been designed before you reached the age of 12, is now controlling your life.
It does seem rather impossible, but as you will learn, one particular perception in your mind, developed through the impressions you picked up from your parents, school and media, is blocking you. It prevents you to join over 150,000,000 people who successfully changed that piece of memory and now own 86% of everything this planet has to offer.
We are talking about the principle use of money as the only tool and weapon on your disposal in our contemporary society.
What the most people, including you, feel when think, see or hear the word “MONEY”?
Instant feeling of anxiety and unexplainable, irrational need to protect something!
Ask yourself these questions:
Do you think money is vital for your life?
Do you have money?
What do you do with your money?
Hopefully, you answered that money is important/vital and that you have money. But on the third question, you initial response was: buying things or paying for things.
Now ask yourself few additional questions:
Why do you use your money in that way? What do you buy, what do you pay for and how do you do it?
The answer: You do it the way you were taught to do all of that.
You were raised under the simple, yet deadly wrong dogma that says: you must finish your school, find a “decent” job and work hard for your money.
IN REALITY, THERE WAS NEVER ANY NEED FOR YOU TO WORK FOR SOMEONE ELSE AND EARN MONEY because money is being made and not earned. Only, nobody in your closest social environment understood that basic mechanism of how money is finding its way to your bank accounts.
Let’s clarify this a bit.
How do you make your money?
You’re basically selling your labor (physical or intellectual) for monetary compensation, based on the agreed fixed hourly wage. And it takes 160 out of 720 hours to receive total monthly amount of your “sales” efforts!
Thus, the premise: money is made through sales on an open market.
In your case, the “goods” you’re exchanging for money on the market are your brain, muscles, sweat and bones. In other words, you’re selling yourself to the best buyer you were capable of finding.
How much do you worth in recurring payment process until market renders you obsolete?
Anywhere between $1,280 and $6,400 per month on average. In some point of time, you — the product — will become obsolete and forced to settle for far less until the last breath you’ll take.
In 40 years of this irrational trading model, you’ll generate anywhere between $614,000 to $3,072,000. It depends of how good you are in selling yourself to the market.
The consequences of this irrational and completely inefficient business model are mind blowing
Since your brain has already calculated that there’s no chance in hell that you’ll even live long enough to buy yourself a car or a house from what you’ll earn; you are doing something you were taught to do; once you start receiving revenues from selling your labor:
LOANING MONEY FROM THE BANK to quickly “equip” yourself with couple of things essential for your life: car, house, furniture, appliances and hundreds of other products you’ll buy on the open market, using borrowed money!
And then you’ll spend the rest of your working career paying back that money with the high interest rate. All those items you’ve purchased will render themselves unusable or obsolete in less than 3-year time. Your house will require adaptations each year with 2 major renovations in next 10 and 20 years. Thus, everything you bought so far is not an asset as you prefer to think, but liability. Because asset makes money and liability spends money.
None of the things you bought makes you any money, right?
To make things even worse, this entire process is natural for you. You’re experiencing it in a positive way. Not even once did it occur to you that something is terribly wrong with the way you’re perceiving money and the world you’re living in. And you got one crucial fact entirely wrong:
It’s a brilliant design made by just a handful of people who never received the credit for pulling the human kind from the claws of corrupted individuals who were using instruments of fear to dominate over large population and land. We are talking about different kings, tsars, dukes, lords, churches and other members of aristocracy. Only 200 years ago, the only way for a man or a woman to even move beyond the point of pure basic survival was the royal origin or deep connections with the royals based on corruption.
Today, thanks to few brilliant minds, situation is different. But the problem still prevails: old habits die extremely slowly.
People still don’t recognize the simplicity and brilliance of the system so they are rushing to factories immediately after finishing schools to start earning money.
What will happen when the global production process becomes fully automated, using advanced robotics? Already now, 40% of all processes are done using robots, eliminating any need for human labor.
And since nobody was investing, banks were forced to re-think their business model. They had to find the way to get all of that money out at the market to keep the system alive.
It was the dawn of CONSUMER LOANS!
Money simply had to find its way back to the system. It must circle, otherwise we are in danger of total system collapse and potential re-installment of rulings of one.
If they (people) don’t want to use money to make money through investments, we’ll (the banks) “sell” them money to buy goods. It’s that simple.
The reason why it’s so hard for more than 80% of people to use their money as the investing tool to generate far more than those max. $3M they’ll make in 40 years by selling their labor
Hides in a fact that investment does not produce the same rewarding reaction (feeling/sense) as the purchase of the smartphone, food, car, house, and similar. There’s nothing taking the physical shape in a purchase process! And since we are visual creatures, it triggers the defense mechanism, caused by our primordial fear from the unknown, common for every soul on this planet.
What we don’t see, scares us.
It’s more rewarding to spend $50 on dinner that will just go through your stomach than to invest that money in buying a single option. You can see, smell and taste the dinner. You can feel the effect when that food is going through your digestion system. But when you buy a stock, nothing happens. Nothing gets visualized.
Same applies to everything else you are purchasing, including utility bills because you can see the light and you can feel the warmth coming from the central air-condition system. Even the bill you are paying for the internet gets connected with the physical thing because you know how some strange particles (photons and electrons) are rushing through the cables, delivering you information that you can actually SEE with your own eyes.
That’s why you’re perceiving investments as something awkward and uncomfortable. There’s no physical representation of your purchase. Because, that’s what it is. It’s a purchase. You’re buying equities or bonds. But you don’t see it, hear it, taste it or feel it!
And it’s happening because nobody taught you anything about it.
In that critical period of your life, when your central belief system was being made, nobody explained it to you. You were left to deal with it on your own because those who were teaching you felt the same thing you’re feeling now. Anxiety. Fear. Unexplainable need to protect something.
To protect what exactly? What is there to protect? Do try to answer it. What are you protecting? Money? For what reason? You’re gonna spend it anyway. Why didn’t you protect that money when it counted the most like that time when you bought the car using someone else’s money?
You had no problem at all walking into the bank and BORROWING someone else’s money to spend it on some 4-wheel moving object that will become obsolete in a matter of 3 years, and yet you’re afraid to invest your own money in something that can potentially generate more of it!
Can you find the logic in that type of behavior?
You are willing to spend someone else’s money on something that will go to hell in no time but you won’t spend it on something that will increase your bank account balance and ensure prosperity. How do you reason that?
Ah yes, there are no guarantees that money you’ll invest will in fact make more money! They’ve been telling you how careful you must be with your money when it comes to potential investment but they had no problem buying stuff with that same money. You were watching this and your brain considers it as the normal behavior in your environment.
So, let me ask you this: How much did that car you bought on loan made you thus far? And yet, you bought it. How much did the garage full of tools made you? And yet, you bought all that tools, used only occasionally, for your private needs.
Can we say that you’ve spent at least $20,000 so far on different items and essential maintenance of your house, car and other equipment you’re using in your everyday life? OK.
Mr. Camillo, a self-directed investor flipped $20K in $2M in just 3 years, during the worst financial crisis of modern times. Spend 5 quality minutes and start opening your eyes to see the reality:
How much money do you have on different investments?
What are the odds that your car, electric drilling machine and hammer make money? Right now, not even a positive zero because most of the stuff you bought over the course of time needs money to be of any use so you’re going in minus. Car needs gas, regular maintenance, and insurance. Electric driller needs electricity. Hammer demands more of your body energy, which translates in more food you need to digest.
But what if you rent your car? What if you provide the service with your driller? What if you see some collectible item at your neighbor’s counter and strike a great deal just to sell that item on eBay that same evening?
What if you do what Mr. Camillo suggests and start monitoring sites like Crowdfunder to spot the next great innovative idea?
A single $1,000 investment may easily generate lifetime revenues because what has started as a simple crowdfunding campaign with the goal to collect $20K of initial fund for building the prototype, often turns into multimillion dollar business. And you own 5% of that same business since you’ve purchased 5% of equities with your $1,000. You just saw it before the others and locked the deal.
But how do you spot something like that? How do you know where to invest?
Why did you buy that car or house? You could easily go with bike or public transportation and live in far cheaper place but for some strange reason; you decidedto buy all of that.
What was the dealmaker in those decisions? Think about it for a while.
DOGMA! That’s all to it. You were raised to think and operate in a way that will sooner or later fuck up your financial situation and subsequently your life.
You deliberately and without any second thoughts spent money on stuff that will drain even more money from you without any chance or ROI ever, and now you’re searching for the BULLETPROOF WAY TO INVEST WITHOUT ANY FUCKING RISK. What the fuck is wrong with you? Can’t you see the irony?
When it comes to throwing your money into nothing, knowing that there’s no way in hell that you’ll ever see any return of investment, then it’s OK to do it. But when it comes to injecting some of your money into something that has at least some chance to double your investment, you start thinking and having second thoughts about the entire deal, because it does sound risky and you could lose your money…
CAN ANYBODY SEE THE FUCKED UP PATTERN OF THINKING IN THIS OR IS IT JUST ME?
Buy something, you lose 120% – for sure! Invest in something, you have 50/50 odds to double your money. Which sounds better?
What else can be done with money besides common purchases of money-draining items?
Getting a picture now? Do you see how wrong they raised you?
It’s time you change your perception and accept the fact that the only way for you to live in abundance is to STOP earning money and START making money!
What you do is simple. You focus on it!
So far, your focus was on the lawn, sex, food, job (up to 25% of your mental or physical capacities), new tires for your vehicle, beer in your fridge and bills.
Switch your focus on INVESTMENTS and investing related subjects. Do the following:
Read the business section of your favorite newspaper.
Create the free account on equity crowdfunding platform such as Crowdfunder and click the “LEARN” link at the upper right side to start bombarding your brain with the new and useful memory blocks.
Take a break from ESPN and similar sports channels and switch to business channels.
Listen to the crowd; they will tell you everything!
This last demands further clarification. As Mr. Camillo said, couple of years ago, his co-worker told him how “He read the great book (Hunger Games) that’s apparently a certain hype these days among the young population and how it will be great if they make a movie out of it.” Now, Mr. Camillo has never heard about the Hunger Games but that didn’t stop him to start paying attention, expecting some sort of the signal that someone will start making the movie. It wasn’t long before he read the PR (press release) from Lionsgate (found on sites like PR Newswire, PR Web and similar.)
What he did was simple. He searched for the Lionsgate’s ticker and purchased x amount of Lionsgate’s stocks. But he did it before Wall Street guys so his entrance was low (low stock price.) Once Wall Street picked up the signal, money started pouring in, increasing the Lionsgate’s stock price at fast rate. In one point of time, Mr. Camillo decided it’s time for the exit so he sold the stocks, multiplying his investment.
It’s always the same rule: do what others are not doing!
Will you hit the jackpot every time? No. Did you hit it with your house or car?
But that doesn’t mean that you should go in with everything you have.
You spread your risk by allocating 20-50% of everything you have into several different investments, and never use money you don’t have.
There are no rules here. Some people are favoring mixed portfolio with short, medium and long-term investments. Some, like Mr. Camillo, are waiting for months before investing 20-40% in one single investment. This approach is known for creating the environment of higher odds because these people are patient so even though it seems as a high risk in the moment you’re purchasing your options, in reality those are pretty much sure deals.
But you have to turn your focus on this matter. Forget about everything else if you want to reach the moment where money you’ve earned in the past starts generating more money, making your labor no longer needed.
And that’s the point and the primary purpose of money as it has been originally designed:
Monetary-market system allows you to rather quickly reach the moment when money makes money and you are perfectly capable of retiring in the age of 30!
You only need to re-invest the portion of your money. Money must find its way back to the system, otherwise it’s lost forever.
So far, you’re keeping the system by paying your loans with interests. That’s you current role in the system. Those smarter, who figured out how system is designed, are making millions without worrying about bills, interests, inflation and everything else that scares the living bejeezus out of you.
You, on the other hand, are earning your money. There’s a big difference between earning and making money. Start making it.
Just think of it this way. How much money did that smartphone you bought make for you? How much did it make for the company that is producing and selling it? Do the same thing they are doing because if they can do it so can you!
The best part is: you don’t even have to think of and build the product. You simply buy their equities (stocks) and that’s it. Let them do the hard work. It’s how system is designed.
It’s not an illusion nor a dream. Over 10% of global population are making at least some money online, working from their homes. For the most part, we — who are making money online — make more in an hour than most make during entire 8-hour shift.
The best thing is: life without the boss freakin’ rocks!
How it’s possible to make more money online in an hour, working from home, than in 8 hours working for someone else?
Question explains it. What’s happening when you have a traditional “job” is that you’re in fact earning money. You’re not making it! Earning money by definition implies that you’re selling your labor for the agreed (fixed) monetary compensation. And that — as you already know — has it’s limits.
Making money however, does not imply anything “fixed” or “agreed.” There are no limits. You are engaging a global market with your solutions – same thing your employer is doing. It’s just that you’re engaging that market from the vicinity of your home office or even a simple living room – you’re in fact making money online.
Ways to make money online
Without any desire to go into hypothetical scenarios, most common way is to start freelancing. It’s basically same as traditional job because you’re selling your intelectual and some physical (typing, drawing, talking, acting…) labor/effort for monetary compensation.
Nothing is “fixed”! That’s most important to remember. How much will you make, let’s say per hour, totally depends on you. The difference between traditional job, where you have to commute Monday-Friday and then put up with some bullshit, and freelancing, is when you’re freelancing, you’re in fact making money online. The only things that get commuting are your files, dispatched to your client(s) and money dispatched from your client to your bank account.
It’s estimated, judging by the current trends, that 20% of all employees in US will switch to freelancing in next 5 years because, when you think about it, there’s no more need for offices and necessary supplies/equipment. It cuts company’s costs exponentially.
The real beauty of freelancing is the fact that you’re exposed to the market directly, in difference from traditional 9-5, where your impact on the market is indirect – you depend on your employer who’s making the deals. That fact, as scary as it may appear, in fact opens your mind and you start seeing endless opportunities.
In one point, things become clear – if you want to move beyond $40/h, you need to figure out the PRODUCT. In other words, you must develop a solution and solve some problem many people have. Bigger the solution, more money you make. Thus, you start making profit! which is the key to wealth building and freedom.
And that’s the point where you really start making money online. You invest what you have to spare either in your own product (solution) or in someone else’s. For instance, if you take some time and browse through Crowdfunder, you’ll see the network of investors, scouting for the next big thing. People invest anywhere between $100 to several millions in some startup they find interesting and with the great potential. If everything goes well, those $1,000 turns into $10K or $100K in a matter of a year.
If you have any doubts in my claims, Google “Coolest Cooler” and similar crowdfunded startups and you’ll see it.
Remember: you’ll get paid in direct proportion to the value you’re bringing to the market and not the penny more or less.
But who says that you can make money online only by freelancing or building your own product (virtual or physical, all the same)?
In reality, no university degree is needed for success. There are only two main disciplines that you must master: sales and marketing. Then you can pick from, I don’t, several millions different products and engage the market of 2 billion prospects. That’s the number of people that go online each day.
How do you make money online reselling third party’s products?
First and foremost – learn sales and marketing! Without it, you’ll keep busting your balls for someone else for the rest of your life.
Now why sales and marketing? Why it’s imperative to learn these two?
How do we call our current societal setup? Monetary-market system or consumers society. Getting a picture? From whatever angle you look at it, there’s something exchanging hands for agreed monetary compensation. You have a market as the key playground and on that playground you have 3 key figures:
Manufacturer – problem solver
Seller – middleman
Buyer – in need for a solution who buys because he/she wants, not necessarily because he/she needs!
Hardly any manufacturer is selling its solution in retail. For the most part, goods go to wholesaler, who then sell it to the retailer and eventually you buy it. It’s how it goes.
So, if you wanna make money online in a fastest way but don’t want to come up with your own product, you have to appear in a role of a reseller (wholesales or retail).
Here you have 2 options:
If you’re interested in dropshipping, there’s a lovely, simple guide to dropshipping at Shopify. In short, you’re reselling the goods without stacking them in some warehouse. It’s a retail type of selling but with low overhead.
That’s the problem in the same time. Since it’s easy to setup everything with no more than $200, this type of entrepreneurship is picking up on the momentum and it seems like folks are competing who’ll cut the price more. It leads to another problem and that’s extremely low margin because, you do have to pay the supplier not only for the order but also for extra cost since it’s the manufacturer or wholesaler who will handle the packaging and shipping for you (usually anywhere between $2 and $5 per order.)
Still, you need to know: A) how to sell, and B) how to market your goods. Luckily for you, you can learn it HERE.
Affiliate marketing is something else.
There are products with extremely high margins where a single sale generates $100 profit for you. Now you can do simple math and figure out that you only need to make 1 sale a day to earn 3 grand a month, which is the average amount you’ll get paid for some low entry job. Only, you’ll have to bust your ass for 8 to 9 hours to earn those $3K. In affiliate marketing, it takes only 1 great cold email or a great landing page. So it’s basically hours of preparation for something that will generate money on auto-pilot later on.
That said, there’s an obvious problem: what to sell and to whom?
First of all, you need to figure out ‘why’ you’re selling something. Only then comes the ‘what’ and ‘how’. Because, if you don’t know why you’re doing something, it’s gonna be that much harder to succeed. If you do not understand what I’m telling you, then I strongly suggest that you take The Sequence master course. It’s clear that you don’t have a clue about what’s been going on around you. Take a look (link opens in new tab, don’t worry):
The fact is that 85% of people who become obsessed with making money online don’t know the basic rules of sales and marketing. The bulk just think how it’s enough to pick few products, buy an email list and start firing cold emails. In case you’re wondering what cold emails are, please do go through The Sequence. It will change the way you think about our society and how money is being made – online in particular.
There is a big difference between trying to sell something 101 and online selling. No eye contact; you can’t shake someone’s hand and exchange oxytocin, and you cannot use body language either in order to build the trust. On the internet, sales are made with the blindfold over the eyes of both seller and buyer. But the goods still exchange hands. Seller does manage to assure the buyer that his/her intentions are honest and buyer does purchase the product. We are talking about billions of dollars that change hands every day in online transactions.
Somewhere in all that endless river of money, there’s your cut. You only need to reach for it, that’s all.
The most common — and arguably the most efficient way — is to pick your niche/subniche, build the website around the central concept, make few initial picks (~ 20) and start attracting interested clientele. Easier said than done, right?
Again, there’s a good way and wrong way for doing it. It’s a knowledge that doesn’t come in one night of Googling the term “affiliate marketing” or “making money online.” We are talking about cumulative knowledge from many disciplines all condensed into one single niche website, then another, then another and so on.
Eventually, you’ll start thinking about your own solution to some problem people have. It’s inevitable because you’re exposed to that kind of stimuli. That brings game to whole new level.
All that we were discussing so far and the stuff that follows are thoroughly explained in 6 modules of The Sequence master course. You will be guided to setup the online business with or without your own solution. But you will be taught how to figure out that solution because that’s what you should be striving for.
And then we go back to the basic principle of monetary system – investments
You don’t want to freelance. Affiliate marketing and sales in general are scaring the bejeezus out of you. And you are not interesting in blogging about blogging about blogging or how crappy day you had the other day when that old fart blocked your exit so you had to go all the way back to the 20th floor to wake up the deaf crow and force him to move the goddamn car so you could finally go to work. Your boss was so fucking furious that he immediately cut 10% of your next paycheck. And so on, and so on. Yeah…there’s a shitload of similar blogs; not one making more than $200 in a good month.
What are your options? You do still want to make money online. So what the hell are you not seeing?
What you don’t see — if we are talking about some quick cash — are CFD’s or contracts for differences. Currencies, indices, stocks, commodities, you name it, people are doing it. It’s basically this: you speculate whether the certain pick of yours will go up or down in value over the precisely defined period of time. If you guess right, you earn money. Fail and you lose.
How much do you make?
It depends on two factors: how much you’re willing to invest and what’s the leverage? Huh? Leverage? Wotta f…
Same thing that caused Great Depression last century, is now used to make few quick grands in less than 10 minutes. Or, of course, to lose hundred times more. It mostly depends on your trading skills. It goes like this: I’m the broker, running the Forex platform — your personal broker –, and I tell you this: invest $10 and I’ll multiply your input by 100. It’s my gift to you, every time you decide to invest money. Nice, you say. Instead of buying just $10 worth of options (buy/sell), you’re in fact trading $1000. But there’s a catch and something many people find “shocking” and “surprising” (wonder why?). If you fail in your judgment (prediction), you lose $1000!! Leverage works both way!
To paint that picture even better, here’s the footer from Markets.com, one of the largest Forex and CFD trading platforms. Quote:
HIGH RISK INVESTMENT WARNING: Trading Foreign Exchange (Forex) and Contracts for Differences (CFD’s) is highly speculative, carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. You may sustain a loss of some or all of your invested capital, therefore, you should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading on margin.
Trading on margin, or using leverage, is the highly risky investment game. If you know what you’re doing, there’s a chance that your initial $100 of trading capital will transform into $100,000 in a matter of few months or even sooner. On the other hand, if you are gambling rather than investing, you might end up being forced to pick the loan just to be able to answer the margin call initiated by your broker. That’s what happens to people who disregard the primary rule of investing: stop-loss!
There are quite a few detailed How-To’s for Beginners, but arguably the best one is this: babypips.com, the beginner’s guide to forex trading. Even though they are just dealing with the Forex market, it will be more than enough to understand options trading principles and rules. CFD’s are basically the same thing only instead of currencies, you’re trading with commodities, stocks or indices. You’re betting whether some, let’s say, stock will go up in future (buy action) or drop down in some period of time (sell option). Ergo, options trading.
But if you really want to make it as simple as possible and exponentially risky, go with binary options.
Basically, you’re placing the bet whether some ticker will go down or up in next 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 minutes. There’s a leverage again so it’s just simplified trading on margin, slash betting. Binary options are in fact a hybrid between options trading and betting. It allows you to either make money online or lose 100 times more in a matter of couple of minutes. In fact, binary options are still illegal in some countries.
One thing is common for both classic and binary options brokers: they will keep calling you on the phone relentlessly. You have to leave your phone number during the registration so don’t be surprised when you see strange country code calling you. Relax, it’s your future broker from Cyprus or UK. When you finally explain them to fuck off and stop calling you, and they in fact do stop calling you, few weeks later they hire a new client manager, who pulls out the list and start the process all over again.
Only, it’s wise to talk with the broker because it’s in their best interest to teach you how to do it since their profit comes from only two sources: pip spread and potential margin calls. They are far happier when money is generated through the spread because margin calls are dreadful and in most of the cases mean loss of the client. So do spend some time communicating with your personal broker. You can arrange the email sequence if you don’t want to spend money on phone calls.
That will cover the most common ways to make money online. It’s perhaps too much to consume at once because, if you’re new to the online money-making game, you do need to upgrade your matrix. There’s a lot to learn if you don’t want to waste two most precious things: time and money! (family is something else and should not be mixed with business in any way!)
Waste no time because you have only so much Earth’s turns around the Sun. What you do with that time decides the level of your financial and any other success. Take the course of your lifetime and learn how to play the money game from your living room chair!
Stage 1 of the 3-stage business model is teaching you how to setup and run a money-making low risk online business through which you’re not only generating money from several sources but also training for the Stage 2 or the core of your future business.
Both stages are designed to generate seed money for the Stage 3, or the point where you are becoming synced with the system and money you’ve made in a past — and are still making — is multiplying by the strategic investment procedures explained in The Sequence master course.
What you have here is in-vivo presentation of how to become self-employedwithout any need of leaving your home.
This is in fact the business model for setting up the online business where you can generate anywhere between $35,000 and $100,000 per year in the startup phase.
However, if you decide to exploit the full potential of the model, your revenues are increasing exponentially. Because The Sequence master course is teaching you how to think, plan and run complex businesses after readjusting your core matrix to make it optimal and highly efficient, which a prerequisite for making money in monetary-market system.
Thus, while the following “How to Become Self Employed crash course” is in fact a complete tutorial for setting up the online business that you can run from any place on this planet with just your laptop and internet connection, it won’t do you any good if you fail to learn how to develop a perfectly synced-with-the-system business mind. Clearly, that’s something you still don’t have.
So after you go over this short and concise tutorial, you’re suggested to download another,
On the other hand, if you feel confident enough and ready to make a 180° turn in your life by becoming perfectly synced with the monetary-market system, we suggest that you jump on The Sequence master course immediately. What awaits you is the cutting edge psychological rewiring of your core matrix based on the thinking model used by 150,000,000 already synced people. You got that right. It’s those 2% that own 86% of everything this planet has to offer.
And as you’ll learn, the only difference between them and you is the fact that they understand the neat and brutally efficient built-in mechanisms that make the core of our monetary-market system. They are synced with it. You are not. At least not yet. So,
Now, let’s see what we can do with only 4 hours, Monday-Saturday, shall we?
How to Become Self Employed crash course
The prime request in designing the Stage 1 of the 3-stage business model provided for you in The Sequence master course, was to limit the time spent on the project to correlate with the average available time every man on this planet has. If you think you don’t have time, you’re reading the wrong material. You should be reading some fiction novel instead because, as you’ll see now, this is the minimum time you are able to devote in order to change your future. It’s up to you and you alone. Just think about 80/20 rule and decide.
This is the average amount of available time every man has
Let’s see…you spend 9 hours on your professional occupation (it does take time to get dressed and go to damn place, right?). Then, you spend approximately 1 hour eating. Another 1 hour goes to different bathroom rituals. Let’s say that you sleep about 7 hours.
Where that puts us? 24 – 18 = 6 hours.
Another 2 hours go on some private fun, family time and possible afternoon rest and you’re left with 4 hours. Those 4 hours can worth far more than 8 hours on your current job. And let’s not forget about Saturdays, Sundays and different holidays. Once you get addicted, you’ll start using those also and increase your odds drastically. Wife might not be so happy about it, but once she smells the cash (meaning new purse or drapes), she’ll calm down.
What we can do with those 4 hours?
How much more money do we need in this startup phase?
Around $16.5 billion, right? Well, why not. People are making that kind of money, so why wouldn’t we, right?
Still, let’s start with something more achievable in this startup phase.
Let’s say that we are currently making around $65,000 per year and we would like to make extra $35K to make the round number. It will come handy to cover many expenses so we wouldn’t be forced to use our credit cards frequently, which wastes lots of money on fees and interests.
The basic math
We rounded the numbers a bit to make the math simpler. In the outcome of our basic calculations, we came to a round number of $30 per 1 hour, Monday to Saturday. That means that now we only need to figure out the product that we can sell to make $30 per hour, which will subsequently yield $120 through our available 4 hours.
Sounds much more achievable when you dissect the problem, doesn’t it?
Now we need to decide our strategy and business model
If we manage to build the product with the realistic price tag of $30, we would need 1 customer per hour to reach our defined daily goal and that’s $120. Thus, we need only 4 customers per day, Monday to Saturday.
As you can see, we deliberately avoided Sundays and holidays in the equation to make your life easier but we did include 4 hours during Saturdays, just to get you used on extended working week, once you decide to go ballistic with the whole thing.
So we designed a neat portable dog cage, since our chosen niche is pets, dogs indoors subniche. Our analyses showed that there is a room in this overcrowded niche. In addition, we deliberately focused on overloaded niches to really push the concept to the limits and test the operational aspects in difficult conditions.
Our startup funding for Model #1 comes from our own resources, because will make limited number of units just to test the pulse of the market first.
Model #1 is optional, meaning that you can skip it entirely in this startup phase if you don’t have your own resources to fund it. You may also find it difficult to negotiate a good deal with some local manufacturer or Chinese company. But, you are strongly advised to at least give it a shot just to get some feeling of what is like to make deals. Look at it as yet another way to learn because, once you set to break limits, you’ll have to start negotiating all kinds of deals. Thus, start practicing immediately.
How do you know what the good deal is for portable dog cage for instance? You find medium priced offer and deduct 70% from that price. It’s the margin. Focus on Chinese companies if you are aiming to build something cheap for the starter because they are most flexible.
Remember: you have to be pragmatic in this startup phase. Local patriotism will come later when you pump some money on your accounts.
Since it will take time for our product to come out from the production lines in initial quantity of 500 units, we have time to deploy Model #2.
We still don’t have a product around desired price of $30, which means that we need to adjust to the circumstances. So we’ll decrease the price but then we are forced to increase the number of sales (customers) per hour.
So we’ll build the product with the price tag of $8.99 which is the common price for virtual things today but also for any physical items also. You can find plenty of gadgets and all sorts of accessories under the $9 just by browsing through Amazon or eBay. If nothing else, it may give you a clue where to focus your development efforts.
In this scenario, we will need to make 14 sales per working day of 4 hours. That’s 3.5 sales per hour. Does that sound like something achievable? Damn right it does.
Building the $8.99 product
Remember, we didn’t raise the bar that high. Even a child could sell 4, $8.99 products per hour. If you take a walk, you’ll most likely see kids, sitting on the walkways, selling all sorts of crap and probably making more money than you do during 4-hour period. Something to think about, right?
We’ll use a neat hack to reach the targeted daily volume of sales. And we don’t even have to build products. We’ll build something else.
Keep in mind that the following concept can be applied to virtually any niche.
Browsing for products that are already in sales
We went to Amazon.com, created the free account and enrolled in affiliate program. It will allow us to link our sales efforts to any — any — product available over the Amazon. When sale is made, we earn the cut in a profit. For the products related to our targeted niche, that commission is 8%.
We decided to use these 7 products:
When we sum our cumulative, we’re at $9.64. Now it’s unrealistic to even think that you can sell the entire set at once. You’ll use a different kind of strategy.
We deliberately decided to choose competitor’s “Portable cage for dogs” for two reasons:
We can test the market
Psychological preparation because once we get our own portable cages, we’ll make simple adjustment as you’ll soon see.
This may appear as a risky tactic but it’s not. It’s a unique way to see how market responds to your product.
Now when we have our picks, we move forward.
Building the roof product at $6.99
We’ll build a comprehensive, yet funny how-to guide for people who are thinking about getting the dog and keeping it indoors. We are not concerned with the competition. There’s plenty of meat to go around.
But one thing should be mentioned here:
You see, this is our edge. People would like to turn a million in less than a month by investing $20. It doesn’t work like that and we all know it. And yet, all of the sudden, everybody with the Photoshop consider themselves as the top creative designers. In 90% of cases, they end up with crap and then wonder how come nobody wants to buy their quality product.
What we did as a part of a preparations was this:
Noted EVERY potential issue future dog owner might have and made the list (we know them all so it wasn’t a problem but we could easily browse the net for topics);
Thought about the past and recalled everything we went through with our dogs. Funny moments, sad moments, moments of extreme dissatisfaction and anger because the damn dog chewed right through the sofa, and similar experiences;
Noted that past, line by line, in a meaningful timeframe, starting with the choice of the breed;
Merged those two lists;
Created meaningful sections by merging logical parts of the joint life between man and his dog. (think timeline and you’ll know what to do);
Went online and browsed for books similar to what we’re going to make (and those were comprehensive guides of having the dog indoors from the Day 0);
Read few bestsellers in the niche but went over the feedback of every title and noted the negative feedback;
Redesigned our book’s basic concept by answering the negative feedback (used their weaknesses in our advantage);
Wrote the book, using the tone that we found attractive and optimal but built the content in a way that allows us a subtle implementation of those 7 products we picked on Amazon.com (don’t sweat about the fact that you don’t know how to write a how-to guide);
Provided that writer with the detailed concept, tone and the fact that he must incorporate affiliate links in least obvious way. They must appear as a genuine and welcomed help. (Remember: best types of sales are when you’re not selling at all but only offering a hand of help!)
As a MUST, we incorporated images (had some already) and illustrations to make the book more attractive.
And now we have our roof product that we’re aiming to sell at $6.99. It’s a sweat spot for simple books (it is simple since we didn’t build an encyclopedia.)
Deciding the monetization model or the sales strategy
What we have now is a combo product with cumulative of $16.63. Of course, it’s irrational to even think that every person who buys the book will also buy all 7 affiliate products. It may happen but let’s not rely on that chance. Instead let’s be real and consider maybe 1 – 2 extra sales on account of those disguised affiliate links that will make an average of $2.
Remember: those sales will only occur if you do provide people with effective solution and a bit of humor.
And here we are at $8.99 price tag. Now we need 14 people per day who will buy the product. To be sure, let’s go with 20 sales per day.
How do we reach that new goal?
We used two main strategies.
Strategy #1 – Direct sales
Meaning that we’ll advertise our product via:
We used our own network to get the show on the road. Those are our friends who know how devoted we are to our dogs and how passionate we are when we talk about it (that’s why we picked the dogs niche in the first place and several others we are known to have interest in.)
Now average person holds 200 people on friend’s list. If we apply the global conversion rate of 3.8%, we’ll end up with at least 7 people who will not buy our book per se, but share our post, exposing our smartly crafted pitch to new batch of 1400 people, and so on. That’s only shares. Likes count also but on a smaller scale.
For email marketing, we purchased the highly targeted list with 20,000 names for a starter. These lists goes anywhere between $600 and $1,200. But the problem with these lists is that you really can’t say how many people are interested in your product. You’re going blind and wide, same as you’re doing with the Facebook. Thus, you need ever more email addresses and you need to learn how it’s done because ISP will mark you as a spammer in nanosecond and you’re screwed.
Same thing was in our case. We knew that no matter how quality list it was (we targeted young couples in US), not everybody will:
Open the email;
Be interested in our offer even if they do.
But, it’s just one of the channels so with the cumulative efforts, we’ll surpass the average global rate of 3,8% with no problem.
We also hired a professional to build us a Facebook ad sets and Google ones and fired it up, linking them to targeted landing pages. Budget was $20 per day ($5 on Facebook and $15 on Google). Again, we decided in favor of the minimal costs just to see the overall performance with limited budgets.
During the development phase of the Strategy #1, we already started with extensive work on Strategy #2.
Strategy #2 – Extended content marketing
While Strategy #1 presents direct sales techniques, it still relies on basic content marketing since our book is nothing but a cleverly designed content marketing method to pitch those affiliate products we picked on Amazon and to act as a psychological preparation for our own product.
And now you know what content marketing really is.
So, we used one of our servers to fire up new domain, used 1-click-install option to install WordPress, picked the right (free) template and started building the content. We basically just pumped short and concise articles about everyday life of the household that have a dog or two. The tone was adjusted to the one we used in the book.
Once we reached 100 (you can go with 50 but more the merrier) different articles in 4 categories, we were ready to market our web.
We used combo setup: Facebook statuses, Facebook page, Google ads, Facebook ads + at least one fresh piece of content per day. Remember, we have 4 hours on our disposal and that time is more than enough to craft a single 500-700 words piece of text or to hire someone to do it for us.
Our content had only one goal:
To sell whatever we offer to the market.
In six months, our daily average of unique visitors was 350 with the conversion rate of 7,2%, which means that we made 25 book sales per day on average, including Sundays. Since every person who signed for our newsletter or purchased the e-book, left the email address, we used it to pitch our portable cages once all 500 was delivered. Total cost of those cages was $2,625. That’s $5,25 per unit and with the $30 price tag, we had a good margin of little less than $25. Deduct taxes and connected fees (reduce that number by 50%) and you’re left with $12 of pure net revenue per unit. Add $4 net revenue per sold book and you’re at $16 per set.
Let’s just say that the initial batch of 500 cages was sold out in less than a week but we also had 3,000 pre-orders. So we ordered additional batch of 5,000 units and sold the whole thing to the best bidder. It was just for testing purposes anyway.
Thus, using only 4 hours of our day and investing $6,560 during the startup phase, we ended up with good steady side income. Now just imagine the potential if you’d invest 50 hours per week into it and keep on pushing.
All this time you’re allocating at least an hour per day to master the Stage 2 – your true passion. Something you always wanted to do professionally. It can be anything at all. From flowers to restaurant. From selling seeding materials (both online and offline) to manufacturing of enhanced solar panels.
Stage 2 uses your passion and there is nothing more powerful than that. But you’re expected to work hard and invest time and efforts. Otherwise, don’t expect anything from it. There is no magic here. Only a constant stream of learning, upgrading, progressing and efforts.
The important thing to remember is this: do not neglect the efforts you invested into the Stage 1. Keep it running and highly operative. Why depriving yourself from the steady and fertile source of income. Who knows, maybe you’ll blast out the product that will ultimately click to people and make fast million in no time. You’re seeing it all the time so why not becoming the part of it, right?
Again, Stage 1 business can transform into Stage 2. Think about it this way: if one website generates just $100 per month, why not building 50 of them?
But why limit yourself in any way?
The truth is: on whatever you set your mind on, it will generate money and enable you to build wealth and life in absolute abundance.
Start smart. Learn how it’s done the proper way. Take a look.
Man is what they made him. In 99% of cases, man’s matrix is malfunctioning because they taught him wrong. Add the innate lack of will to push beyond the pure life necessities and you have the current image of the World we are living in.
In reality, that means this:
From 100 people who will read this, only 20 will engage with needed decisiveness and determination. 80 of them will find an excuse and get back to their routines and financial insecurity.
It’s 80/20 rule or Pareto principle, and you can see it all around you.
These numbers will never change because there will always be more prey than true predators. It’s the way nature works and our species is not an exception.
There’s nothing anybody can do for those 80. They will continue to struggle, to blame, to justify and to live on a verge of poverty. But there’s everything we can do for the 20 decisive ones!
Keep in mind that the development programs we are providing for you operate on the principles of reality and not hypotheses, theories, utopias and wishes. And in that reality, only those determined enough win. The rest are suffering from the consequences of their entirely wrong responses. Whether they don’t know any better or they don’t want to know, they’re going to lose or at least struggle either way.
Now, forget about everything else, and decide in which group you belong.
Again, keep in mind that The Sequence master course is not some “get-rich-quick” scheme. This is a groundbreaking advanced program for long term financial stability, designed to operate in a perfect sync with the monetary society we all live in. You will be taught how to think, start, and run complex businesses in an optimal way.
The progress is broken into 6 Modules, where each module upgrades your matrix in a gradual and effective manner. Core business program is further broken into 3 stages, where Stage 1 presents a detailed blueprint for setting up the low risk business in order to learn, train, but also to start generating money. Stage 2 is the core of your future. It is where you’re generating the real seeding money for the Stage 3.
Stage 3 is the final destination. It is the moment where money makes money, which is the core principle of the monetary society. It’s the moment where your muscles are no longer needed. Money you’ve made in the past will start multiplying.
And this is only a glimpse of what follows.
So, are you brainstorming for excuses or do you want to learn how to live perfectly synchronized with the best societal setup this species has ever created?
You might be thinking that you don’t have what it takes or that things are just fine the way they are right now. Understand this: your true potentials are buried under the deposits of wrong tutoring, wrong practice and obsolete matrix. You were taught wrong.
We’re going to make it right this time.
But in order for this to work, you have to understand what exactly is wrong with your central belief system and what has to change in order to rise with style, removing all the boundaries and limits.
Therefore, you’ll learn yourself and surrounding environment from the ground zero in a following sequence:
1) Complete understanding of the monetary society in order to fine tune your strategies and actions. You’ve been taught wrong or not at all. Make no mistakes; you have to further optimize your responses and actions.
2) Understanding the importance of time as the most valuable asset; the one thing you cannot get back or earn again. Once you understand, you’ll go through exercises in order to further forge your skills and master it.
3) Understanding the principle purpose of money which will be followed by learning exercises in order to master the proper money management; something you know nothing about because of your wrong perception of money. You’ll be presented with the most effective money management program.
4) In this point, after learning the system, time and money, you’ll be suggested with the optimal business program. The main reason why this particular business program is designed is its proven track of records and relative simplicity. This exact approach is repeatedly used to reach what is known as the Point of Sync. If you decide to follow the program, be ready to execute one stage after another, using provided blueprints.
5) And finally, you’ll reach the point of sync!
All you have to do is this: adopt and practice what you’ll learn and follow the program to the letter. Stay persistent (you’ll be taught of how to pull that off) and money will start pouring like water from the Niagara Falls.
Don’t skip modules. Don’t miss even one of 6 that follow. Fail to comply with this simple principle, and everything is in vain.
Your current situation is sum of everything they have taught you or missed to teach you.
In the same time, you failed to learn it on your own, once you reached your adult age.
We are here to correct those errors and to put your life on a growth trajectory path.
But not only yours. Through you and your actions, our entire civilization will benefit and gain additional value.
Why thinking that big? Because…
Your incomes are proportional to the value you are bringing to the market.
Thus, you need to solve the problem for millions of people out there. Bigger the solution, more money you make. In the same time you need to expand the market.
Don’t worry. You’ll learn why, how and what to do through The Sequence master course. Take the moment and familiarize yourself with the course and its structure. See what you’ll learn and how great the change will be.
