They promise you will make 1000$ – 10000$ per day with their program, without any work. Does that sound too good to be true? Of course. Because it is. If it was that easy, we would all be millionaires. And like most scam programs out there, they don’t go into details of how exactly you will be earning that money. They keep their offer vague, and concentrate on how awesome your life will be once you’re rich. That’s to make you dream and forget to ask questions. They are simply trying to distract you. The same strategy is used by pretty much every scam out there.
The key point to remember is that if Tepper had bet wrong and the Fed hadn’t ridden to the rescue, then his hedge fund—and most hedge funds—would have lost billions. In fact, the bailouts saved the entire hedge-fund industry from utter collapse.
You’re thinking 10X bigger than everyone else. You’re operating under short timelines and high pressure. You can tax yourself to extremes while you work because you spend lots and lots of time resting and preparing.
It takes delivering real value that people will benefit from. It takes an almost-altruistic attitude of doing the most amount of work for the least initial return. If you’ve come across some system that all-but guarantees you’ll get rich, scrutinize it before buying into the hype.
Sad but true that here is so much B.S. out there when your looking for a way to make money online, I was hit up by a couple of them scams sad to say, but like Tony said “So much B.S. out there! There are no instant riches!!!
As a result, I failed hard at money in my early 20’s. My financial journey began with me opening credit cards I could not afford to manage, taking out student loans I didn’t need, and landing in $20,000 worth of credit card debt.
A little long winded but just stay with me… My wife and I came to the US (to a small farm community in northern CA) as an immigrant 35yrs ago with 3 young kids (1yr, 2yr, 3yr olds), no English speaking skills, just a 3rd world high school education (which is probably equivalent to an 8th grade education here), no marketable skills, and just enough money for the plane ticket here and a 4yr old car when we got here. We first stayed with my sister in law and her husband for about 4 months while my wife and I worked in the fields in the summer harvesting fruit. After scrimping and saving we found our own old and broken down rental out in a peach orchard – it was the only one we could afford that would allow us to save. We continued working in the fields each summer thereafter and, as our 3 children grew , they helped working in the fields on the weekends and summers. Each child started helping out at about the age of 5 yrs old, so we could increase our earnings. The younger ones would play in the field where we worked. The farmers didn’t care, so they let us bring our kids. Over time, we, all 5, would work in the summers harvesting fruit and getting paid for each box filled. We were the slowest among the workers and filled the fewest boxes, but we persevered summer after summer. Then about 4-5 yrs after arriving in the US I got a farm job for the off season but on days it would rain, I didn’t have any work at all, so no pay. We never had health insurance so we tried hard to stay healthy. But at least I was able to earn some more money in addition to the summer earnings. So there we were, about 4-5 yrs after arriving, working in the fields, I made minimum wage with my farm job and my young family making a combined of less than minimum wage in the summer (remember how I said we got paid piece work and filled the fewest boxes?) – essentially, one min wage job and another 1/2 min wage job. But we persevered. Our kids would start working weekends at the start of summer and miss the 1st 2 weeks of school at the start just to get that extra income before the summer came to a close each year. But we all pulled together, saved for enough of a down pmt on a small house in town so we could afford the mortgage pmt and still be able to save. We splurged here and there (eating out a few times a year, buying a few nice things and keeping them FOREVER (new TV, new car, new furniture, new appliances), new clothes for school each year (never the trendy ones though – they cost too much – the kids knew how hard it was to earn a buck so they were happy for just the new clothes even if they weren’t trendy). Needless to say, we didn’t 1) buy morning coffees, 2) go out to lunch, 3) take vacations, 4) Waste stuff only to have to buy a replacement, 4) waste money on junk food, only the nutritional basics (we just couldn’t afford to do that AND save some for when there was no work due to rain). We ran into some medical problems, needing a few surgeries that ended up costing as much as a new car each time. But we needed it, didn’t have insurance, and had the savings so we had to pay. But we still persevered. We lived simply and saved simply. We didn’t get into investing in anything other than CD’s. I couldn’t even begin to understand that stock stuff so I avoided it. This continued for over a decade. Then my kids were in high school and got jobs at fast food so they made min wage – a step up from the field work and we saved their earnings as well. They would work 2 jobs in the summer – fields during the day and fast food during the evening/night – it was tough but it was only for the summer. As time went on, our WHOLE FAMILY COMBINED, FINALLY STARTED EARNING maybe about 2/3 of what an elementary school teacher earned (my uncle was one and I remember him alone earning more than our whole family earned). But we persevered. While my kids were in high school, we saved and eventually bought a bigger and nicer house in a nicer neighborhood and eventually paid it off. I still made min wage, wife worked doing seasonal work, kids help on weekends/summers. My kids went to a local community college and drove from home each day – the traditional going away to college was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. All 3 still worked weekends fast food and both, fast food and field work, during summers. I still earned min wage and my wife worked seasonal during the summers. With a few scholarships, financial aid, we were able to pay for college. They then transferred to a nearby university, still drove each day from home to college, while maintaining the weekend/summer work. Again, with a little from scholarship, some financial aid, and working ALOT we paid for their college. Upon finishing college, all 3 moved out to where the jobs were. I still worked min wage, my wife, seasonal work. But we saved and didn’t waste it and lived simple lives. We then bought a bigger house, paid cash, in a nicer neighbor hood (with doctors, dentists, and pharmacists as neighbors) but we still live the same, no reason to change lifestyles. We also have enough for retirement but we continue to work. My neighbors don’t believe I work in the fields. I don’t care, it’s not my job to make them believe. To make a long story even longer, my WHOLE point is that you can STILL DO IT EARNING MIN WAGE! You don’t have to go as extreme as we did but you CAN STILL DO SOMETHING TO GAIN WEALTH! People who will NEVER have any wealth will only focus on excuses and come up with ALL kinds of holes and weaknesses in my story. People who WILL https://youtu.be/HthQWKPLzRo wealth will see the same story and come away encouraged to do better.
Diva Cosmetics was started from home with her first-born on her hip. The business rapidly grew to accommodate a full-time team of twelve with offices in central Bournemouth and was sold late 2003 after Emma took the decision to grow her family and take some time out.
On 13 September 2010, the U.S. version adopted its “shuffle format”. Ten questions are asked in round one, each assigned one of ten different money amounts. The dollar values are randomised at the beginning of the game. The contestant is then shown the original order of difficulty for the ten questions as well as their categories, and those are then randomised as well. This means that the difficulty of the question is not tied to its value. The dollar values for each question remain hidden until a contestant either provides a correct answer or chooses to “jump” their question. In this format, the value of each question answered correctly is added to the contestant’s bank, for a maximum total of $68,600. A contestant who completes the round successfully can walk at any subsequent point with all the money in their bank, or can walk before the round is completed with half that amount (e.g., a contestant who banked $30,000 would leave with $15,000). Contestants who give an incorrect answer at any point in the round leave with $1,000. After completing round one, the contestant moves on to a second round of gameplay (the “Classic Millionaire” round), in which four non-categorised questions are played for set non-cumulative values and a correct answer augments the contestant’s winnings to that point, as in the older formats. The contestant is now allowed to walk away with all the money in their bank; an incorrect answer drops their winnings to $25,000. The shuffle format was replaced with a modified version of the original format (with only 14 questions) for the fourteenth syndicated season; the values of the last four questions remain unchanged.
In fact, increasingly more online forums, such as Webmasters.org, are in two these “Ad Share” programs. You have so far chosen to be busy at the forum, why not trade your time with some real money that you can spend.
I know this sounds like an odd strategy, but it works. When I find there is a millionaire with whom I want to connect and I am not getting traction with the other ways described above, I take it a step further and offer to pay them for their time.
