Breaking Free

No Not Now

When I was a young guy working at Chubb Electronic Security in Brisbane, Australia I used to do things like work out how many days I had left before I could retire at 65.  I was wishing my life away.

The weird thing was, the job was pretty good. I actually enjoyed it and became Chubbs top Sales Rep world wide.  That was according to the actual Mr Chubb.  

I had a nice salary, commission on every sale and a company car.  

So why was I counting the days to retirement?  (I was 25 at the time so there was quite a few days to go)

Imagine you are at one of the best zoos in the world.  Let’s say Australia Zoo or Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney.  Both have amazing enclosures for the animals which mimic their natural environments.  

They are a real delight to visit.  

But deep down when I’m at even these amazing zoos I feel the animals would rather be free.  No matter how nice their enclosure is, it’s still just a gilded cage.

I think that’s how I felt with my job at Chubb.  I’ve had a pretty large number of jobs in my life.  Many of them I enjoyed immensely. All of them still felt like a trap or a cage. No matter how good the jobs were, they still stole my freedom.

Do you ever feel the same way?

When you wake up each morning are you feeling excited to do the commute to your job?

How do you feel when you walk out the door and leave your family behind each work day?

How do you feel about sitting in traffic thinking about how good it would be to be sitting on a beach in Thailand instead?

How do you feel when you find yourself figuring out how many days are left before retirement?

Ask yourself this: exactly when are you going to do something about it?  When are you going to get off your backside and pay the price for your freedom?

Oh I can hear you now..

No not now, it’s Valentines

No not now it's Labor Day

No not now it's 4th July

No not now it's Halloween

No not now it's Thanksgiving

No not now it's the Holidays

No not now it’s New Year.

How long are you going to keep making these excuses?

No time is convenient to build your business.

Any time you choose is going to be difficult and disruptive to your life.  But it's never going to be as disruptive as your job.

Pick a date.  A date you can focus for a measly 30 days and let everyone know.  “Hey I’m not going to be around much for 30 days. I’m working on a project that’s going to change my life.  You can come along too if you want. No big deal if you don’t want to, but I’m doing it”

Prepare.  Get whatever you need to grow your business for 30 days.  Brochures, presentation materials, sample, phone scripts, whatever.  Get your list of prospects ready. Buy some leads.

When the date arrives, pull the trigger, don’t wimp out again.  Run hard for 30 days and I promise you; you will see amazing results.  Your life will change forever. You will never look back.

You will already begin to feel the freedom!

Will You Still Do It When You’re 80?

My mother is 94 at the time of writing.  I’m planning to go to Australia in May to celebrate her 95th birthday.

I clearly remember when we celebrated her 80th.  At the time I was amazed at how old she was. My father was still alive at that time. They owned their own home in a nice suburb in Brisbane, Australia.

They were both in reasonable health, still exercised daily, drove their car, washed their clothes, cleaned their house, did their own shopping and prepared their own meals.

At the time of writing I’m 65 which seems incredibly old!  How on earth did I become so old? I still feel like a 30 something, except when I get on a treadmill.  But now when I look back at myself when I was 45 or even 55 I think those ages are so young. At those ages, of course , I felt they were incredibly old.

My mother considers me young.  I protest and say “jeez Mum, Dad had been retired for 5 years at my age!”  He had been,  but she brushes this protest aside and insists I’m young. I’m sure from her point of view 65 is close to being a toddler.

The point of this story is that no matter how old we are, it always seems old once you’re past 30, right?

So whatever it is that you’re doing now to earn a living.  Is it what you want to be doing at 80 or 90?

How will you find the energy and strength to do the job that sustains you now?

I’m asking because if you’re like most people you don’t have enough money to retire comfortably.  By comfortable I mean, living in a nice place and enough money left over so you can do the things you like to do.  

It's very likely you’re going to make it to 90 at least.  Medical support is getting better all the time, people live much longer now than ever before.  Women especially need to consider they are likely to be alone for the last 10 or 20 years.

How are you going to finance your lifestyle in these twilight years?

Would it be better to do the work to build an income that will sustain you to the end NOW while you are young(ish) and fit or wait until you’re 80?

There never is a good easy time to grow a business.  There will always be things in the way, making it difficult and uncomfortable.  It’s hard for everyone, no one gets to build a business while they sit on the couch watching TV.

Here’s how to get started

Pick a date. 

A date you can focus for a measly 30 days and let everyone know.  “Hey I’m not going to be around much for 30 days. I’m working on a project that’s going to change my life.  You can come along too if you want. No big deal if you don’t want to, but I’m doing it”


Get whatever you need to grow your business for 30 days.  Brochures, presentation materials, sample, phone scripts, whatever.  Get your list of prospects ready. Buy some leads.


When the date arrives, pull the trigger, don’t wimp out again.  Run hard for 30 days and I promise you; you will see amazing results.  Your life will change forever. You will never look back.

This time next year, you and I could meet up on a beach in Thailand!

What Do MLM Leads REALLY Cost

How much do MLM Leads cost?

One of the very first questions potential MLM leads buyers want to learn when they come to our site or call us is; How much do leads cost?

Although this is a very difficult question to answer, I will try to do my best here to explain some general pricing guidelines.

The investment in MLM leads is somewhat like buying a drink in a bar or a restaurant. I’m going to use that analogy because we’ve all bought a drink at some stage. There are so many options when selecting a drink which all have a substantial effect on the price.

You might be in a local bar with some friends and so you select a local beer because it’s a fun occasion and you’re all just having a few laughs and munching on salty peanuts and nachos. That’s about as cheap as a drink comes, right?

What about if it’s a Saturday night and you’re wanting to impress that special someone and a beer isn’t going to do it. Maybe

But what about if its Saturday night and you’re in a snazzy restaurant with someone you want to impress. You show off your prowess and knowledge of sophisticated cocktails and order something with a combination of 15 ingredients, some flowers, an umbrella and some sparklers shooting out the top. (Clearly, I have no idea about cocktails)

how much do mlm leads cost

The point of the analogy is that these are both drinks but of varying value and for use at different times. The options and quality of the drinks has had a huge effect on the price. One was a cheap beer and one was a more expensive cocktail with a multitude of ingredients (or options)

Both can be awesome but they obviously vary in type, quality and price.

These same principles typically apply to most MLM leads.

Understanding that there are different types of leads and choosing the correct type for the correct use is important in order to get the best results.

Unfortunately, some people only focus on the initial price of the leads with the only goal of finding the "cheapest" leads company.  

They are sacrificing such important things as quality, guarantee, targeting, freshness, number of times sold and designed purpose, which inevitably leads to regret, dissatisfaction and disenchantment. So much so that the buyer might even quit their business!

Now that you hopefully understand my silly drinks analogy, I will list some of the most common things found in the purchase of MLM leads which will affect the price:

  • Real Time Delivery (The Lead is Delivered Right After Being Interviewed)
  • Freshness (Age since the lead was generated)
  • Short Form / Long Form (The amount of information included)
  • Gender Selection (Male or Female Only)
  • State Only (Leads from a selected State)
  • Type of Lead (Method of Contacting, Email, Texting, Voicemail, Phoning)
  • Type of Lead (Method of Contacting, Email, Texting, Voicemail, Phoning)
  • Country (US leads are the least expensive leads in the whole world)
  • Phone Interviewed (leads who have been interviewed in preparation for you to call them)
  • Best Time to Call the Lead
  • The Leads Desired Monthly Income
  • How Many Hours They Can Put to the Business
  • The Leads Investment Capability
  • Gender
  • Leads Date of Birth

As you can see, there are many options available, and when someone asks us "how much do MLM leads cost?" we need to have a discussion to find out a few things before we can answer the question or direct them to the leads which will suit them best.

Unlike most MLM Leads companies we do not try and confuse you with a huge range of different types of leads and options and prices which make no sense.

Those guys are very much like mobile phone plans which are designed to prevent you being able to compare plans or deny you to be able to even understand what you are getting.

We started in the MLM leads business back in 2003. We’ve seen many companies come and go and we’ve also seen many types of leads come and go.

To make selection super easy for our clients we got rid of all the silly bells and whistles and stripped down the range of leads to only what Network Marketers really need.

We examined the most popular leads in the industry, how they were used and the results they achieved. It all boiled down to basically 2 types of leads:

Mobile (Economy) and Phone Interviewed MLM Leads

Just like the fuel you put in your car. For many vehicles, Economy is fine. Phone Interviewed is generally for those wanting higher performance.

Think of your business as a vehicle. It is what is going to take you to your lifestyle goals.

MLM Leads are the fuel.

Let’s examine what each of these lead types has included, what options are available, what they cost and in what way they are best used.

Mobile leads

Apache Leads has both U.S. and Australian Mobile Leads

How Are They Generated?

A Mobile lead is generated when a person completes a form on the internet. The person was directed to the form by any number of different methods. Sometimes banner ads on sites, sometimes as a result of a search engine enquiry, sometimes by them being on an email list

After completing the form the lead will be emailed telling them someone will contact them.

The information they submitted on the web form is placed into the lead company’s database.

The form will include permission for the lead to be contacted even if they are on DNC lists.

Often the form the person is completing is very generic and covers many things they are agreeing to. For example, they may be agreeing to be contacted about weight loss, getting fit, refinancing their home, buying a car, upgrading their phone.

Best Way to Contact

Mobile leads are generated by the hundreds of thousands every day. They are a low-cost lead designed to be contacted by using bulk contacting methods. The reason for this is these systems will find the leads you need to speak with easily and efficiently.

Many clients use SMS Text Messaging Systems or Ringless Voicemail to contact Mobile Leads.

Cost of Mobile Leads

Fresh US Mobile Leads: From $0.003 to $0.10 per lead
Aged US Mobile Leads: From $0.003 to $0.008 per lead

Fresh Australian Mobile Leads: Not available.
Aged Australian Mobile Leads: From $0.05 to $0.12

US Mobile Included Information

First & Last Name, Email Address, Telephone, Street Address, City, State, Zip, Gender, Date/Time Stamp, IP Address, Prospects open to online offers

Australian Mobile Included Information

Full Name, Gender, Date Of Birth, Email Address, Phone Number, Date, IP Address

Phone Interviewed MLM Leads

We have Phone Interviewed MLM Leads for both the USA and for Australia.

How Are They Generated:

Both are a high quality surveyed lead. Surveyed means they completed a form online which is very comprehensive.

The biggest difference is that the Australian Phone Interviewed Leads are also Phone Interviewed. This means we called every single lead before we allow it into our database. We even recorded every call and do make these recordings available if you request.

Both version, US and AU are superior leads to most MLM leads you will find anywhere else

Best Way to Contact These Leads:

Both versions are designed for you to call them on the phone as soon as they are delivered to you.

Please note: Having spoken with literally thousands of Network Marketers since I started this business back in 2003, I’ve deduced the biggest problem with calling leads is the caller, not the lead. The caller needs to be trained, have a good script and have practiced delivering the script before calling Phone Interviewed MLM Leads. We provide free training here but strongly recommend everyone ask their upline for training.

Cost of Phone Interviewed Leads

US REAL TIME Phone Interviewed Leads: From $2.25 to $2.72 per lead
US Fresh Phone Interviewed Leads: From $0.49 to $1.56 per lead
US Aged Phone Interviewed Leads: From $0.24 to $0.58 per lead

Australian REAL TIME Phone Interviewed Leads: From $3.95 to $4.90 per lead
Australian Fresh Phone Interviewed Leads: From $3.05 to $4.22 per lead
Australian Aged Phone Interviewed Leads: From $0.60 to $1.00 per lead

Information Included

US Phone Interviewed Leads:

First & Last Name, Email Address, Phone Number, IP Address, Street (When Available), City, State, Date and Time Stamp, Best Time To Call, How much extra money would they are willing to invest, How much time they can spend each week on your business, Gender Targeting Available, State Targeting Available

Australian Phone Interviewed Leads:

First & Last Name, Email Address, Phone Number, IP Address, Street Address, City, Date and Time Stamp, Best Time To Call, How much extra money would they are willing to invest, How much time they can spend each week on your business, Gender Targeting Available, State Targeting Available

ApacheLeads 10 Hardcore Reasons To Not Get A Job

10 Hardcore Reasons You Should Never Get A Job


I just read one of the very best posts ever written about why getting a job is probably the most stupid thing anybody can do to themselves.  To be very candid I’ve copied and posted this excellent article in full because I’m not as straight shooting as the writer.  He’s very direct and definitely doesn’t pull any punches so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

You could pass this article onto any of your friends or prospects who are sitting on the fence about whether or not to get into business with you.  Reading this will get them off the fence for sure.  If they still don’t want to join you then, they are beyond help and deserve to keep their terrible jobs.

Ok, gentle reader, strap yourself in, here we go….

10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job

July 21, 2006

Just for fun I recently asked Erin, “Now that the kids are in summer school, don’t you think it’s about time you went out and got yourself a job? I hate seeing you wallow in unemployment for so long.”

She smiled and said, “Wow. I have been unemployed a really long time. That’s weird… I like it!”

Neither of us have had jobs since the ’90s (my only job was in 1992), so we’ve been self-employed for quite a while. In our household it’s a running joke for one of us to say to the other, “Maybe you should get a job, derelict!”

It’s like the scene in The Three Stooges where Moe tells Curly to get a job, and Curly backs away, saying, “No, please… not that! Anything but that!”

It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job. But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself. There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude.

Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job:

1. Income for dummies

Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income! This is truly income for dummies.

Why is getting a job so dumb? Because you only get paid when you’re working. Don’t you see a problem with that, or have you been so thoroughly brainwashed into thinking it’s reasonable and intelligent to only earn income when you’re working? Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working? Who taught you that you could only earn income while working? Some other brainwashed employee perhaps?

Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too? Why not get paid 24/7? Get paid whether you work or not. Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them? Why not your bank account?

Who cares how many hours you work? Only a handful of people on this entire planet care how much time you spend at the office. Most of us won’t even notice whether you work 6 hours a week or 60. But if you have something of value to provide that matters to us, a number of us will be happy to pull out our wallets and pay you for it. We don’t care about your time — we only care enough to pay for the value we receive. Do you really care how long it took me to write this article? Would you pay me twice as much if it took me 6 hours vs. only 3?

Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path. So don’t feel bad if you’re just now realizing you’ve been suckered. Non-dummies eventually realize that trading time for money is indeed extremely dumb and that there must be a better way. And of course there is a better way. The key is to de-couple your value from your time.

Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work. The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not. From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

This web site is an example of such a system. At the time of this writing, it generates about $9000 a month in income for me (update: $40,000 a month as of 10/31/06), and it isn’t my only income stream either. I write each article just once (fixed time investment), and people can extract value from them year after year. The web server delivers the value, and other systems (most of which I didn’t even build and don’t even understand) collect income and deposit it automatically into my bank account. It’s not perfectly passive, but I love writing and would do it for free anyway. But of course it cost me a lot of money to launch this business, right? Um, yeah, $9 is an awful lot these days (to register the domain name). Everything after that was profit.

Sure it takes some upfront time and effort to design and implement your own income-generating systems. But you don’t have to reinvent the wheel — feel free to use existing systems like ad networks and affiliate programs. Once you get going, you won’t have to work so many hours to support yourself. Wouldn’t it be nice to be out having dinner with your spouse, knowing that while you’re eating, you’re earning money? If you want to keep working long hours because you enjoy it, go right ahead. If you want to sit around doing nothing, feel free. As long as your system continues delivering value to others, you’ll keep getting paid whether you’re working or not.

Your local bookstore is filled with books containing workable systems others have already designed, tested, and debugged. Nobody is born knowing how to start a business or generate investment income, but you can easily learn it. How long it takes you to figure it out is irrelevant because the time is going to pass anyway. You might as well emerge at some future point as the owner of income-generating systems as opposed to a lifelong wage slave. This isn’t all or nothing. If your system only generates a few hundred dollars a month, that’s a significant step in the right direction.

2. Limited experience

You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience. But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf. You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not. A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain “experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all. Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.

The problem with getting experience from a job is that you usually just repeat the same limited experience over and over. You learn a lot in the beginning and then stagnate. This forces you to miss other experiences that would be much more valuable. And if your limited skill set ever becomes obsolete, then your experience won’t be worth squat. In fact, ask yourself what the experience you’re gaining right now will be worth in 20-30 years. Will your job even exist then?

Consider this. Which experience would you rather gain? The knowledge of how to do a specific job really well — one that you can only monetize by trading your time for money — or the knowledge of how to enjoy financial abundance for the rest of your life without ever needing a job again? Now I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the latter experience. That seems a lot more useful in the real world, wouldn’t you say?

3. Lifelong domestication

Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program. You learn how to be a good pet.

Look around you. Really look. What do you see? Are these the surroundings of a free human being? Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals? Have you fallen in love with the color beige?

How’s your obedience training coming along? Does your master reward your good behavior? Do you get disciplined if you fail to obey your master’s commands?

Is there any spark of free will left inside you? Or has your conditioning made you a pet for life?

Humans are not meant to be raised in cages. You poor thing…

4. Too many mouths to feed

Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is. In the USA you can expect that about half your salary will go to taxes. The tax system is designed to disguise how much you’re really giving up because some of those taxes are paid by your employer, and some are deducted from your paycheck. But you can bet that from your employer’s perspective, all of those taxes are considered part of your pay, as well as any other compensation you receive such as benefits. Even the rent for the office space you consume is considered, so you must generate that much more value to cover it. You might feel supported by your corporate environment, but keep in mind that you’re the one paying for it.

Another chunk of your income goes to owners and investors. That’s a lot of mouths to feed.

It isn’t hard to understand why employees pay the most in taxes relative to their income. After all, who has more control over the tax system? Business owners and investors or employees?

You only get paid a fraction of the real value you generate. Your real salary may be more than triple what you’re paid, but most of that money you’ll never see. It goes straight into other people’s pockets.

What a generous person you are!

5. Way too risky

Many employees believe getting a job is the safest and most secure way to support themselves.


Social conditioning is amazing. It’s so good it can even make people believe the exact opposite of the truth.

Does putting yourself in a position where someone else can turn off all your income just by saying two words (“You’re fired”) sound like a safe and secure situation to you? Does having only one income stream honestly sound more secure than having 10?

The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly. You can’t have security if you don’t have control, and employees have the least control of anyone. If you’re an employee, then your real job title should be professional gambler.

6. Having an evil bovine master

When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way. When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.”

Did you know that the word boss comes from the Dutch word baas, which historically means master? Another meaning of the word boss is “a cow or bovine.” And in many video games, the boss is the evil dude that you have to kill at the end of a level.

So if your boss is really your evil bovine master, then what does that make you? Nothing but a turd in the herd.

Who’s your daddy?

7. Begging for money

When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money? Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then?

Or are you free to decide how much you get paid without needing anyone’s permission but your own?

If you have a business and one customer says “no” to you, you simply say “next.”

8. An inbred social life

Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet. They hang out with the same people working in the same field. Such incestuous relations are social dead ends. An exciting day includes deep conversations about the company’s switch from Sparkletts to Arrowhead, the delay of Microsoft’s latest operating system, and the unexpected delivery of more Bic pens. Consider what it would be like to go outside and talk to strangers. Ooooh… scary! Better stay inside where it’s safe.

If one of your co-slaves gets sold to another master, do you lose a friend? If you work in a male-dominated field, does that mean you never get to talk to women above the rank of receptionist? Why not decide for yourself whom to socialize with instead of letting your master decide for you? Believe it or not, there are locations on this planet where free people congregate. Just be wary of those jobless folk — they’re a crazy bunch!

9. Loss of freedom

It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee. The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will. A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations. This leads the new employee to become more obedient, fearing that s/he could be disciplined at any minute for something incomprehensible. Thus, the employee will likely conclude it’s safest to simply obey the master’s commands without question. Stir in some office politics for good measure, and we’ve got a freshly minted mind slave.

As part of their obedience training, employees must be taught how to dress, talk, move, and so on. We can’t very well have employees thinking for themselves, now can we? That would ruin everything.

God forbid you should put a plant on your desk when it’s against the company policy. Oh no, it’s the end of the world! Cindy has a plant on her desk! Summon the enforcers! Send Cindy back for another round of sterility training!

Free human beings think such rules and regulations are silly of course. The only policy they need is: “Be smart. Be nice. Do what you love. Have fun.”

10. Becoming a coward

Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies? But they don’t really want solutions — they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault. It’s as if getting a job somehow drains all the free will out of people and turns them into spineless cowards. If you can’t call your boss a jerk now and then without fear of getting fired, you’re no longer free. You’ve become your master’s property.

When you work around cowards all day long, don’t you think it’s going to rub off on you? Of course it will. It’s only a matter of time before you sacrifice the noblest parts of your humanity on the altar of fear: first courage… then honesty… then honor and integrity… and finally your independent will. You sold your humanity for nothing but an illusion. And now your greatest fear is discovering the truth of what you’ve become.

I don’t care how badly you’ve been beaten down. It is never too late to regain your courage. Never!

Still want a job?

If you’re currently a well-conditioned, well-behaved employee, your most likely reaction to the above will be defensiveness. It’s all part of the conditioning. But consider that if the above didn’t have a grain of truth to it, you wouldn’t have an emotional reaction at all. This is only a reminder of what you already know. You can deny your cage all you want, but the cage is still there. Perhaps this all happened so gradually that you never noticed it until now… like a lobster enjoying a nice warm bath.

If any of this makes you mad, that’s a step in the right direction. Anger is a higher level of consciousness than apathy, so it’s a lot better than being numb all the time. Any emotion — even confusion — is better than apathy. If you work through your feelings instead of repressing them, you’ll soon emerge on the doorstep of courage. And when that happens, you’ll have the will to actually do something about your situation and start living like the powerful human being you were meant to be instead of the domesticated pet you’ve been trained to be.

Happily jobless

What’s the alternative to getting a job? The alternative is to remain happily jobless for life and to generate income through other means. Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time — so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it. One of the simplest and most accessible ways is to start your own business. Whatever work you’d otherwise do via employment, find a way to provide that same value directly to those who will benefit most from it. It takes a bit more time to get going, but your freedom is easily worth the initial investment of time and energy. Then you can buy your own Scooby Snacks for a change.

And of course everything you learn along the way, you can share with others to generate even more value. So even your mistakes can be monetized.

How to Make Money From Your Blog (article)

One of the greatest fears you’ll confront is that you may not have any real value to offer others. Maybe being an employee and getting paid by the hour is the best you can do. Maybe you just aren’t worth that much. That line of thinking is all just part of your conditioning. It’s absolute nonsense. As you begin to dump such brainwashing, you’ll soon recognize that you have the ability to provide enormous value to others and that people will gladly pay you for it. There’s only one thing that prevents you from seeing this truth — fear.

All you really need is the courage to be yourself. Your real value is rooted in who you are, not what you do. The only thing you need actually do is express your real self to the world. You’ve been told all sort of lies as to why you can’t do that. But you’ll never know true happiness and fulfillment until you summon the courage to do it anyway.

The next time someone says to you, “Get a job,” I suggest you reply as Curly did: “No, please… not that! Anything but that!” Then poke him right in the eyes.

You already know deep down that getting a job isn’t what you want. So don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise. Learn to trust your inner wisdom, even if the whole world says you’re wrong and foolish for doing so. Years from now you’ll look back and realize it was one of the best decisions you ever made.

Final thoughts

Quite a lengthy post already so I’m not going to add much on here.  Tons of food for thought, I really hope you go something from it which will help you get out of your job situation and take your business to a higher level.

Online business is not for everyone, that’s for sure, however for many people it’s the best way to earn a living.  I absolutely adore it and have 100% made my living online since September 1995.

The Story of Value, it’s Priceless

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.

In the room of 200 people he asked “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands started going up.  He said  “I Am going to give this $20 bill to one of you, but first, let me do this”

He proceeded to crumple to $20 dollar note up.

He then asked “Who still wants it?”

Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well” he said “What if I do this?”

He dropped it to the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.  He picked it up and showed it was all crumpled and dirty.

“Now who still wants it?”

Still the hands were in the air.

“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of your lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by… WHO WE ARE!”
