    What's the Point of it all?
    Working at home and quitting the nine to five.
    This seems like it's impossible to do, but many people have testified to the fact that they have actually done this. They brag about putting in two hours of work each day and bringing home hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. The truth is, most of this money is made when people sell the idea of working at home. This may seem like a harsh reality to some . To others, this just seems like the natural process that has to happen in order for the circle to be complete. Let's all face it. The bottom line is, someone has the information that is needed to start a home based business. This person can give the information away, or this person could be smart and sell the information at a reasonable price. In all honesty, when we think about it, we pay for college and we even pay for our children to attend private schools. We pay for them to be taught so that they won't have to learn everything on their own. We go to car dealerships and appliance stores and ask for help to find a specific item that we need. The salespeople are there to help us, but they are also working there to earn a commission. They did not take the job solely to help you buy a car, or "just" to help you get the best TV on the market. They took the job hoping to sell you something that you were looking for, all the while, earning a living. This does not sound cruel or unusual. This is the way the market works. This is the way real estate agents make their money. It is the same way with Internet marketing. So this is why we pay for ebooks, videos, software, and spend countless hours online trying to learn the process that we must follow, in order to become a successful Internet marketer.

    We are all looking for shortcuts, but sometimes we do not find the right ones. We are often tricked and played and taken advantage of. This happens because people understand that there's a price that we will pay for a product we desperately need. So there are predators that set traps and snares for us to fall into. They will sell your garbage and false hope just to make a dollar. When the truth is all we need is to products that is going to tell us the truth and give us a plan of action that will show us a profit once we put in the hard work. Thereafter we begin to see the fruits of our labor and we are thankful to the person who was smart enough and kind enough to share their advise with us for a reasonable price. Being an Internet marketer takes determination in a slight investment. Most of the time it either a lot of money and a little bit of time or vice versa. What we all want is to spend minimal money and minimal time, but there really is not the way it works. We cannot get something for nothing. What we really need to become a successful Internet marketer is a real plan and the mind to stick with it. If someone that you knew had a successful supermarket, with a new goal to them for advice when you wanted to start your own? That is the point. When someone is telling you the exact leave what they did to become rich, I suggest you listen.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Assuming you are not setting us all up for you or someone else to suggest a product,
    what do you mean with your last statement "When someone is telling you the exact leave what they did to become rich, I suggest you listen" ?

    I've never learned anything through a paid product that I couldn't have learned by reading online forums and blogs such as this one. Yes, there is a benefit to having all the information in one place, but often the information in a paid product is nothing novel.

    We still need to pay money to make money in this industry, but I get information for free and save my money to pay for traffic and tools I use to test sites and ideas.

    I work 8:30-5:30/7:00/8:30 whatever and it is making me rich, it probably will take another 20 years to have the time to enjoy it.

    When I do online work, I have fun, generally do more than break even, have larger dreams, and learn along the way...

    My advice:
    To get rich
    Get a job and don't spend as much as you earn
