Baltimore Violence

Who I Am

I am a white male. I am a Christian and I am a Capitalist. I believe in the Second Amendment and America’s exceptionalism.

Today, I have decided to let a strong, black woman speak for me on the Baltimore situation. President Obama needs to listen to her, too.

God bless her for telling the truth. Her language is very strong, but hey, she is correct in her points.

America: Imagine the World Without Her

Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D'Souza
Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D’Souza is an immigrant. He chose to be an American. Not an Indian-American, he chose to be an American, like me.

In an age where the favorite tactic is to outshout, not out reason, your opponent, Dinesh D’Souza  quietly overwhelms America’s haters with facts, with historical bonifides that cannot be denied.

In Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her we are given answers to all the condemnations of ourselves, our history and our country to which we have not had access before because part of the Progressive battle plan has been to deny us the history which would have given us those answers.

America has been a force for good in the world, despite what the Progressives would like to think and about which they go to such great lengths to lie.

Even those who despise us, when given the choice of surrendering to our forces or the forces of any other military force on the planet, will rush towards the American line like a toddler rushing into his mother’s arms.

My Experience

Ronald Reagan’s first election was one that I was born 26 days too late to participate in. My contribution at that point was limited to bearing his bumper stickers on my car and singing his praises to everyone who would listen.

With the Prime Interest Rate at more than 20%, that included just about everyone.

1980 was a time when, it seemed, the entire country had just broken a terrible fever, the kind that came with terrible night sweats and dreams making you wonder if you would make it to the morning light.

Reagan led us in such a fashion that people had hope for the future. Hope for the future and an energy that made you leap out of the bed and rush to the day’s activities, certain of victory in pursuit of your goals.

This is a most hateful state of affairs for the Progressives and others who are not happy unless the world is miserable.

Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her will lift your spirits and make you realize that the faith you feel in your bones in the basic goodness of America and her special place in history is more than justifiable, it is proven.

You can view America: Imagine the World Without Her on Netflix and Amazon.

Bad Focus Points

While you are out driving, say for a Sunday vehicular walkabout, have you ever noticed that if you focus on a sign or something interesting, the car begins to drift in that direction?

This is why they say, “Keep your eyes on the road.”

Up until not too long ago, I never knew how many folks lived in a negative space, one of only focusing on what they don’t want. Never, not once, have they thought about what they DO want. If someone asked me for a percentage I would have to say high 90’s.

We know from the Law of Attraction that this is exactly what you don’t want to do.

Good Focus Points

You get what you focus on.

If you focus on what you want, you get what you want.

If you focus on what you don’t want, you get what you don’t want.

Focus on what you want.

If you find my statement that, “Never, not once, have they thought about what they DO want,” understand that wishing to retire living on an island drinking fruity drinks is a substitute for a hated job, not a dream for how to live one’s life.

Being swept up in in the desire for the pictures some ‘guru’ put up on his page are not goals, they are distractions keeping you from what you really want.

Do you really want a $200,000 sports car? Do you really want a home so big you have to spend another $100,000 a year just to keep it up?

Pain

Are these the things you want or are they things you believe will distract you from the pain of your existence?

What Pain?

The pain that makes you get up at 2AM because that is the only time the phone is not ringing from creditors.

The pain that makes you drive like a maniac on the road, knowing all the while that it is not them you are really mad at but the pain of being locked in a life you hate.

Focus, like that X-ray laser Edward Teller wanted to build, focus on what you want and keep at it and the universe will start moving those colossal gears in your favor.

What To Do Right Now

  1. Get a blog and start blogging1.
  2. Find someone you believe in and read his books2.
  3. Watch him on YouTube, as well.
  4. Think about what it is you want.
  5. Ask yourself why you want it.

Take some time and think about it.

Decide what you want, and why, before you go into a business that you hate as much as you hate your job.

Reading List

I have included a list of books I believe in. They helped me. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
  • Who Took My Money? by Robert Kiyosaki
  • Prophecy by Robert Kiyosaki
  • The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Andrew Carnegie

This is a get your feet wet while you figure out exactly what it is you want to accomplish.

Look around; see what others are doing.

See what’s working.

READ.

Let me know your thoughts.

Regards,

Tim Singleton

1. Own your blog. Bite the bullet on having a hosting account. If others control your blog, then others can control how you use it. Build your own blog and do frequent backups to your personal hard drive.

2.If I had to pick one(1) book to start with, my advice is the original.  The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Andrew Carnegie is what started it all. It is $4.95 and downloadable as a PDF.

Hard Times

Hard Times

Hard times are coming. Of this, I have absolutely no doubt. Some of you will justifiably say, “Man, what the hell are you talking about? Hard times are here!”

With unemployment actually running in the 20% range and some 40% of the population needing some type of subsidy from the government I have to agree, hard times are here.

Worse times are coming, though.

Inflation Is A Tax To Benefit Friends of Government

Industrialists, aka assholes masquerading as capitalists, love to talk about the wonders of free enterprise all the while funneling campaign funds to their whores in Congress.

If there is anything to be done about this as it sits, I don’t know what it is.

I just find myself thankful there is still room for an individual to claw his way up with hard work to healthy six and seven figure incomes.

Inflation is a weapon against those of us who want to make it to retirement before we are too old to enjoy it.

See, when the government prints money, or adds zeros to a bank account for the benefit of its friends, they have what is called first use.

Those worse times I said were coming? That is due to this government not having enough money to pay its bills. Printing money for the government is similar to you and I continually borrowing more money to pay bills.

At some point you and I run out of credit. At some point people will lose faith in the dollar. While I don’t believe it will happen tomorrow I do believe it will happen.

That will be a very bad day.

If you do not have preparations for that day you and yours will suffer. The rich are getting ready for it, believe it.

First Use of Money, What It Means To You

That new money is worth more to the person who first gets to spend it. By the time it reaches the end consumer,  the average citizen, by way of having been used to buy goods and services on the way down it has made each dollar worth less. This is inflation.

To put it another way, if the money supply goes up by 4.9% as it did in 2014, then the rate of inflation is at least 4.9%, not the claimed 1.5% which everyone who does grocery shopping knows is a lie.

Here is one source that, based on CPI calculations for 1990, shows inflation to be truly moving towards 15%.

How can you retire by making 10% on your money when inflation is eating away at its capital worth at the rate of 15% per year?

You can’t.

The way you get wealthy is you make money faster than inflation can degrade its worth.

That means living on less than you earn and earning more than you need.

Earn More

If your job does not have the ability to allow you to do that then you need another job, a second job or a side business that will provide you with cash flow so that you can buy assets that produce more cash.

A home based business that allows you to work from home has the most flexibility. It interferes the least with your job which in these days you really don’t want to lose until you are confident your cash flow is steady.

Tim and MaryJane

Earning Income From Home, Part 2

If you like this post and/or find it helpful, please click on the buttons below to share it. Also, please comment so that I know in what ways I am helping you or what in particular you are looking for. -Tim

Earning Income From Home, Part 2

In Earning Income From Home, Part 1, I talked about some of the basic parts of the why and how and some considerations concerning working from home. Today, I will cover two ways in which you can work from home right now generating immediate income.

Those two methods are:

  1. Freelance jobs using skills you have now.
  2. Surveys, marketing focus groups

Freelance Jobs

Do you know Excel? Do you have an English degree? Project management skills?

These types of skillsets are in demand and are a major source of freelance and consulting work, work done at home.

Elance is an excellent source of freelance work. I am registered there myself.

Here is an article a fellow was kind enough to put together. He likes ODesk, I like Elance. You should check out both.

Surveys and Focus Groups

Getting paid to do surveys is a growing business. There are people who consistently make money by taking surveys and engaging in focus groups. I myself have taken surveys that paid me as much as $80 for my time.

Generally, surveys will pay your between $5 and $75 for expressing your opinion as a customer.

Focus groups will pay you upwards of $150, too.

Can you retire on such things? Will you get rich? No, but you can surefire pay the costs of starting that business you have been salivating over joining but just will not fit into your budget.

Click here to see how you can get started taking surveys so you can get started in that business you have been wanting to join …or make it easier to buy groceries, pay bills or start that savings account so that when the business opportunity for you comes along you will not have to sweat over it. You will have built up your capital account so you can hit the ground running.

To Sum Up

If you want to start a business and you have no budget and no resources, job one is to immediately generate additional revenues with which to start your business.

I separate out the idea of working hourly or by piecework as a different issue of building a business that will pay you 24×7, even when you are sleeping.

The two methods I have proposed are:

  1. Using your skills as a freelancer
  2. Using your opinions in surveys to provide much needed marketing data for interested companies.

Tim Singleton

Earning Income From Home

So, You Want To Work From Home

The question of how to make an income from home always comes up when folks find themselves in the following situations:

  1. Got fired
  2. Got laid off indefinitely
  3. Downsized (‘rightsized’ there’s a word to piss you off)
  4. Retired and found payments were less than planned
  5. Disabled, holding your breath for Social Security Disability
    divorced

If often comes up with the realization that:

  • You hate your job.
  • Your boss does not respect you; he may never do so.
  • There is no career path; no income increase prospects.

Starting A Business

Deciding you want to work for yourself leads to the need for a business plan.

Questions you need to answer:

  1. What products and services you want to market?
  2. To whom are you going to market? Who is your target market?
  3. Marketing methods you will use.
  4. How to drive traffic to your site.

When you answer these questions, you can then be about the business of filling in the blanks of your business plan.

Shoestring Budget

If you have plenty of room in your budget, then yeehaa. Let’s get started.

That really is not the point of this post. This post is directly aimed at those whose budgets are extremely tight or perhaps even zero.

If you want to get started marketing and building an online business, there are some expenses involved.

If you are choosing a network or MLM opp you probably will have some kind of monthly expense or auto ship.

You will want a blog that you own. If your politics or alignment goes against the grain of your ‘free’ blog’s hosting company they can yank your blog and close your site.1.

There are paid traffic sources. You can stick with the free methods, but paid is something you will want to be comfortable with.

Incidentals: faster Internet, office supplies, etc.

Tools. There are tools, some are a one time fee, others are subscription based.

DON’T DO IT.

That’s right, your uncle Tim is telling you to not borrow money. Go save it, work some extra hours if you can. Point is, if you are having trouble paying your bills and buying groceries I sure to Heaven do NOT want you borrowing money in order to purchase some of the courses and such that I sell.

I am not in the business of hurting people.

I AM in the business of building long term business relationships with folks who want to be free from the need for a job, forever.

Now, the make it real quick here there are two pieces to this puzzle. The products and services you are going to sell and the training provided by them. Then there is the training outside and separate from the what they provide you. There is also affiliate marketing which, while basically free to start, does require some learning while you are earning.

Point is, you have GOT to get some cash flow going, right now.

How do you do that?

Get Paid Today

Get Paid Today, also known as GPT, is a concept that means you understand that 95% of the folks who see your business opportunity are not going to get involved with you, but you STILL have ways and opportunities to make money from them. One way is to sell them training materials and other such things through an affiliate marketer relationship with various companies.

This is all well and good but how do you do that?

See part two of this article coming later today or tomorrow.

Best Regards,

TimSingleton

Best Home Based Business Ideas

Not going to beat this to death tonight.

If you need extra money with which to pay bills, buy groceries or cover the costs involved with building your online business you should consider taking paid surveys and participating in focus groups.

Paid surveys pay anywhere from $5 to $75 dollars, sometimes more and focus groups regularly compensate their participants $150 or more.
