Captured in Upstate NY

0 Comments

Originating from Brooklyn NY and winding upstate NY was a big change, but it seemed like it was meant to be because everything went so smoothly. I’m talking about the transition of the move. My one and only regret was getting rid of my brand new Lincoln Town Car that was so wonderful to drive, but not too well on dirt roads or in several feet of snow.

 

 

We purchased some property on McMurdy Hill Road in about 1995, just a little ways from Hobart NY because we got lost going to some crazy little town in Pennsylvania. It was a really nice property, approx a couple of miles off the main road and way up to the mountain top. Our property had several levels and the top level was amazing. It had a few rocks on it the size of trucks, and they were all together like something someone mixed in a giant bowl. Perfect spot to hide in while deer hunting because you could see all around you for about 100 yrs and you could duck down in the event a deer was in the area if you needed to move around or even have a smoke, and peek for a perfect shot. If you walked to the edge of our property, you could see for miles and miles all around.

 

 

We even built a small shed on the property to create a tiny version of a cabin and we stored a generator in there along with a porta poti, a table with chairs, and especially a heater. We never left our rifles and other guns, and we were definitely glad because someone broke into it and stole our generator. So much for getting away from low-lifes in the city.

 

Coming back into the town of Stamford, we were thinking, why not rent an apartment in the area since we were coming from the city several times a week to enjoy the property. Apartments were cheap at the time, we were paying for a full, really nice one bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor $300 per month. It was cheaper than staying in the hotel. During the conversation of the rental with the landlord, we came to find out that the property, being an 8-family house, was for sale and at a wonderful price so instead of renting, we bought the building and took the apartment and stayed in Stamford. That’s how I got caught up in Upstate NY

 

 

Going to the property was only about 10 minutes, but it was great with our little makeshift tiny cabin to warm up every time we got cold if it wasn’t for the fact that the generator got stolen. It was definitely a rugged little setup, but the wife wanted a tad more comfort, so we purchased a class A motor home from Camper’s Barn off of I87 and used that for going up and down from our un-developed little 5 acre parcel. This really made the wife happy. It had a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room for 4, and especially heat for the winter and A.C. for the summer. She was content with that big beauty, all 28′ of her.

 

 

So we sold the co-op in Brooklyn NY and moved permanently to Upstate NY. We said our goodbyes to friends and family and moved 300+ miles away to our little town called Stamford. People were very nice there. I guess you have good and bad everywhere, but we saw more nice than good. During our time in Stamford, we picked up a handy-man special 2 family house there for $10,000, and fixed her up, and stayed there for a couple of years. We stayed in Stamford NY from 1995-2005, selling everything and moved down to Florida for about a year, before returning to Upstate NY. I hate hurricanes and alligators so the Florida coastline was not for me. Yep, we came back to Stamford again but since we sold the 8 family house and the 2 family house prior to leaving to Florida, we came back now as tenants. I stayed in Upstate NY and the other half left to stay in Florida for the rest of her days. Life goes on.

Making Serious Money

Ok…

…this might sound a bit ‘off‘ from what a lot of people are saying, but I PROMISE you, that what I’m saying here is not only true, but when you really get it – I don’t think you’ll ever struggle to have money in your life again.

Let me define this for you…

When I say that making money is easy – I’m not saying it doesn’t involve work – what I am saying is that there should be no struggle involved in the process, and when you understand the flow of money and how to create income on demand, your income will ‘flow’ instead of having that feeling that you’re beating your forehead against a wall with nails in it…

Here’s how this post got inspired:

I was in an airport the other day, and got talking to a speech pathologist who is traveling through Costa Rica with some friends for the next month or two.  After 2 or 3 minutes, she asked me what I do for a living, and I just decided to tell her the truth…

“I’m a drug dealer.”

After she got nervous, I laughed and said ‘kidding, seriously – what I do is EVEN better – I get paid to live like I want all day.’

We then started talking about economics, the government, the Federal Reserve System, and how the internet and instant communication fits into the future of the world.

(well, OK – it was me talking and her being bewildered by foreign concepts that almost no one understands…)

It became very clear to me in about 10 minutes, that this 35 year old gal had NO IDEA how the flow of money worked in the world, and it got me thinking…

…I wasn’t really able to create income on demand until I learned how the flow of money worked – and once I understood HOW it worked – I got rid of a bunch of silly concepts that were holding me back from creating what I wanted to create in my life.

Since that time – I’ve consistently made around $30,000 per month, and sometimes a lot more from my various businesses – and honestly, with very little struggle, it just ‘flows’.

So what the HECK did I learn?

Well, I was raised in a Mormon family, went on a mission, went to public school, my Grandpa was a University president for UAF in Fairbanks, Ak – and BOTH of my parents were exceptional students and products of the ‘system’ of the baby boomers…

…all of this nonsense resulted in me (along with the entire baby boomer generation – WHICH by the way, isn’t as true anymore, they are waking up to the real nature of what’s been happening to them in a BIG way right now) not understanding AT ALL the truth behind creating income.

I was raised with the philosophy that if I worked hard – I would be paid a fair wage for my labor – whether it is mental labor, as a product of my intellect and education, or whether it was physical labor (as a product of skipping school too much… lol)

In any case – it took me A LONG TIME to figure out that what I just described has absolutely nothing to do with how much money you’re going to have.  Let me give you an example of how my personal stupidity resulted in a lot of poverty in my life:

I got involved in Amway in 2002, right after I was done being a Mormon missionary for 2 years in the British midlands.  When I was a missionary – I had paid for all of my bills 2 years in advance, and the finances were managed by someone who was good with numbers (a mission accountant, essentially).  My bills were paid from a central location that I didn’t manage, electricity, land-line (we weren’t allowed to have cell phones) and then about 40 pounds was direct deposited into my bank account every 2 weeks that was for ‘extra food’ when people didn’t feed us.  (true story).

So I was completely free from financial burden, had my needs met all the time, never knew how much anything costs – and could focus on mission work (the point of the accountant guy – usually one of these guys manages about 300 missionaries).

I don’t know if I consciously thought this – or if it was an unconscious belief – but for some reason, when I got in Amway – I thought if I just ‘worked hard’ that I would have money mysteriously appear in my bank account.

NOT the case!

It’s funny – but if you’re an employee and you just ‘work hard’ you’re pretty much guaranteed a set wage as long as you have a job and perform – but employee’s rarely think about where the money for that wage comes from, that it has to come from several things:

1.  Money changing hands from one person to another

2.  Profit being generated from the difference between cost of goods and the revenue created.

3.  BAMB!  There’s now money to pay the employees, and hopefully some left over at the end of the month for the boss!  (otherwise, you ain’t going to have that job for long)

Let me tell you the important part of that scenario though – that is the KEY indicator of a successful business:

1.  MONEY CHANGING HANDS

You see, when I was in Amway, I worked REALLY HARD – the problem was, I didn’t understand that working hard has nothing to do with how much money you make.  Let me explain the formula in a little more detail, and I’m going to show you how most people get hung up:

The formula is this: Person A has money, and gives it to Person B in exchange for something he wants.

Here’s the thing most people don’t get (it’s not that they don’t understand it – it’s that they never really think about it).  To get the money from Person A – Person B doesn’t have to actually be involved in that process AT ALL.

?!?!?!?!?! WHAT?!!?!?!?! YOU MEAN I DON’T JUST HAVE TO WORK HARD TO GET MONEY!@!!@!!

Nope – in fact, how hard you work has nothing at all to do with how much money you are going to have in your life – how much money you’re going to have has literally only one key factor – how many people give you money, how much they give you, and what your profit margins are after you pay for everything.

When I figured that out – I started asking the next key question:

“Gosh dangit – how then do I get lots of people to give me lots of money – and what do I give them in exchange that’s so valuable that they’ll KEEP giving me money over, and over again???”

Lol.  Kind of funny in one way – but thinking along those lines let me to a fascinating discovery – there are only actually a FEW WAYS of getting people to give you money!  (legally, anyways – we’ll throw out gun-point robbery and drug dealing for now)  All you have to do is pick one of these ways (they have different levels of pain and work depending on the method) and BAMB!  Let’s make you some easy cash now!

Method #1 (The Stupid Way):  Trade your manual labor (either mental or physical) for money your boss gives you, and just expect that it will keep working.  The reason this way sucks, is that you’re intimately involved in the money-getting process, meaning that you have to show up to get paid.

Method #2 (The Smarter, But Not So Smart Way): Sell stuff to people that they don’t want or need, by getting really good at selling.  This method can work to make lots of cash now – but the problem is, you’re still intimately involved in the process and are trapped – just like the employee – and since people don’t really want your stupid product, you won’t have any recurring purchases and selling will eventually burn you out.

Method #3 (Getting There – But Not Quite The Greatest Money Getting Method): Find a group of people who want something, and find a way to sell your product or service to them by leveraging what THEY WANT, to sell them what YOU WANT.  This method actually works quite well if you know how to sell, but the problem with it is, there’s always a limited market with this method – if you have to convince people to do something that they don’t quite want, you’ve always got to be coming up with crazy ways to sell it to them.  Although this isn’t my MAIN METHOD of earning income – I still use it all the time to sell valuable products and services to people who don’t know they want them… (yet)

Method #4 (ALMOST the greatest money making method ever, but not quite): Find out a product that a lot of people already want, and find the cheapest, best way of delivering it to them.  Man, this method just rocks – the reason?  No real selling required, you can acquire customers and keep them cheaper and longer if you give great value – PLUS, you can also upsell them products that they didn’t know they needed yet.  However, this method still, although somewhat leveraged, is a high paying job – however, it’s a relatively easy one if you manage it properly.  But unfortunately, if you stop working, your income stops, which leads us to…

Method #5:  The BEST Way Of Money Getting In The History Of The World! Are you ready for this?  Ok, grab a pen….

“Find a people who want a product with high profit margins and repeat purchases, find the best way of selling it to them WITHOUT you being involved in the process at all…”

I just had an orgasm.

(brb)

Ok, got my new shorts on – the cool thing about this method is that once you set it up – people give you money without you doing anything!  Now that’s cool!

That means, you can make a ridiculous income, live wherever you want in the world, do what you love, and money just flows into your account on autopilot – with no hard work, effort, or energy involved.

That’s why I like Network Marketing (when done properly)

So here’s the couple of questions I have for you:

1.  Are you trying to sell something that people just don’t want, or do you just suck at selling it?

2.  Is there high enough profit in what you do to eventually outsource it so you don’t have to continue managing something for the rest of your life?

3.  Is there a big enough market to sustain your dream lifestyle?

4.  If you want – you’re welcome to send money my way, any time – just click on any of the images that ‘glow’ when you hover over them.

Lol.

In any case – I hope that you take these concepts and make a boat load of cash – the world needs more rich people to create jobs, buy nice stuff, and otherwise show us all what’s possible when the mind of man (or woman) is focused on a singular cause.

Successful Home Business

0 Comments

Every morning, I roll out of bed anywhere between 4:am and 11am, try to eat something but I make sure I have my coffee and stroll from the bedroom to my office at the other end of the house and there are over 20,000,000 people in the USA who do the same and they work from their home business.

Some folks work full-time and make between six and seven figures per year and others work it part-time to supplement their regular income from that dirty four letter word called “WORK”. Either way, they are bringing in some sort of money by doing something online.

But most of us grew up where work was at the office, warehouse or shop across town or around the corner but now the age of super-computers and the rise of virtual offices, more folks than ever are trying to figure out how to start a legitimate home business that does make money, even so on a shoe string budget.

That’s where we come in. See the presentation video below. It may be exactly what you are looking for. Yes, some people are making $50,000 per month, but they have earned that income thru hard work. Yes, they have done it in a short period of time, but again, they were not afraid to do the work.

If you are looking to make upwards from about $300 per week part-time, just a couple of hours per day. You can do that right here, but if you do what the guru’s do, you can make the money that the guru’s make.

The Ultra Bull Argument for Gold

0 Comments

“I am constantly barraged with emails from gold bugs who passionately argue that their beloved metal is trading at a tiny fraction of its true value, and that the barbaric relic is really worth $5,000, $10,000, or even $50,000 an ounce (GLD). They claim the move in the yellow metal we are seeing is only the beginning of a 30 fold rise in prices similar to what we saw from 1972 to 1979, when it leapt from $32 to $950.

So when the chart below popped up in my in-box showing the gold backing of the US monetary base, I felt obligated to pass it on to you to illustrate one of the intellectual arguments these people are using. To match the 1936 monetary value peak, when the monetary base was collapsing, and the double top in 1979 when gold futures first tickled $950, this precious metal has to increase in value by eight times, or to $9,600 an ounce.

I am long term bullish on gold, other precious metals, and virtually all commodities for that matter. But I am not that bullish. It makes my own three year $2,300 prediction positively wimp-like by comparison. The seven year spike up in prices we saw in the seventies, which found me in a very long line in Johannesburg to unload my own krugerands in 1979, was triggered by a number of one off events that will never be repeated.

Some 40 years of demand was unleashed when Richard Nixon took the US off the gold standard and decriminalized private ownership in 1972. Inflation then peaked around 20%. Newly enriched sellers of oil had a strong historical affinity with gold. South Africa, the world’s largest gold producer, was then a boycotted international pariah and teetering on the edge of disaster. We are nowhere near the same geopolitical neighborhood today, and hence my more subdued forecast. But then again, I could be wrong.

You may have noticed that I have not been doing much trading in gold or the other precious metals lately. That is because they are still working off an extremely overbought condition. Given some time, and a nice little dip in prices, and I’ll be back there in a heartbeat. You’ll be the first to know when that happens.”
