I’ll Help You Make Money Online But are You Willing to Change Your Outlook? Part 1

Whew! I’ve been busy and behind schedule ALL week setting up more Adsense and eBay sites! It’s easy and hard at the same time. But once you put these things in place you can go to sleep and wake up and VOILA, money! So here we go, I’ve officially linked all my little journey to money making while you’re online” articles together with today’s post, and I’ve attached a bottom section that endorses the software I use and why. But you can see I’ve kept kosher to the format that all good stories need; I have a beginning, a middle and an end. So you’ll see my searching phase, my discovery phase and this last phase of me trying to spread the wealth. I’ve got about 2 more parts (at least) that I’d like to add to this series, and today’s might drive some of you away because of content or length-but this shit has got to be laid out. I need to express myself! I don’t hold myself up as a guru or even a jr. guru, but I will tell you what I’ve observed, and what’s worked for me. AND I took all the Adsense out of this piece so I can curse freely!. And you fuckers weren’t going to click on anything anyway :). I usually limit myself to 2 swears per post so I don’t have a TOS issue with Google-so as an ex-Navy guy things might get a touch “salty” in this piece. So the first thing I need to ask you is, are you for real about make money online?. If so let me help you get your shit together. Because this is not a money blog and I’m only doing this once.

1. First of all, Many of You are Hustlers And Don’ Even Know it

Some of you guys know my story, some of you don’t, So let me lay it out; I’m in Chicago. I’m black. I’m handsome as hell. I grew up on the South Side (and that means the ghetto in this city). Also, one of those facts wasn’t really relevant to the conversation but I just threw it in there). Anyway I lived in Manhattan, Tokyo and LA. I’m a city boy. I always live in the HEART of a city, so I know hustles . 2 days ago a very official lady called my cell phone and started rattling off information about my phone account and then proceeded to tell me that because I had been such a good customer they were offering me a $100 rebate to use as I like; as a payment for an upcoming bill, for a new phone, for text minutes-however I liked. But did you guys catch the hustle? She said rebate. I get easily $500 in rebates a year, because I’m a good shopper. And EVERY SINGLE REBATE I’ve ever gotten has been like pulling teeth from the company; fill in this form, staple it to that one, mail by this date, copy this UPC but not that one, and so on and so on. And, of course, you only get a rebate IF you bought something. So when she said that my ears shot up. I instantly stopped the conversation and said, “so how do I get my money?” Well all I had to do was give her the last 4 digits of my social security number. And I said, “really? Well tell you what; give me your number and department and I’ll call you right back.” Click! She hung up. And you know what? She probably DID work for my cell company, but some dude probably talked her into this con and she’ll be the one doing time. Do you know the MAJORITY of women in prison are there because of a man? Did you know that?

So I know hustles. And most of the weird shit I’ve seen shouldn’t be put on a blog. Sometimes they look like that one above, and sometimes hustling is less INTENTIONALLY con oriented. Just people backed into a corner and doing the only thing available to them. So, on the street, when I see a dude mowing somebody’s lawn, taking out some old lady’s garbage, trying to get in on the local construction job, then helping some other lady move her new refrigerator into the house-that’s a dude hustling. Is that you? Or can you live your life without blog money and you’re just trying to get EXTRA money? But it all comes to a mindset of trying to play outside the system . And so when I look out there and see all these bloggers with this piecemeal money strategy. $5 here, $40 there. I see a hustle , not a career. You can’t live on a hustle forever. You’ve got to have a plan and sustainable strategy that can grow. Listen, this is all your choice, you can define what you’re doing however you want. But I’m telling you how it looked to ME. And I can’t lie; I was trying these method too; maybe a dozen, but when nothing was bearing any real fruit I said I’ve got to stop. Just stop and look around. Now look at the images below.

Do I even need to say anything about this. I mean, they’re both showing their best. Now which path would you pursue? There’s Jeremy holding his $132,000 check and these other guys with 1/100th of that. And when I go out into the blog community I see all these MMO blogs and it’s like watching the blind leading the blind. Right? I mean really it’s a bunch of people all saying “I’ll try this, I hope this works.” I see people with this piecemeal money and I DO NOT GET IT. You see Shoemoney standing there with a 1 check from 1 place . Why not try to see if you can make one thing work well? Or look for a system that somebody is ACTUALLY making money from then finding out how to duplicate it? And that’s another thing what IS big money. How much EXACTLY are you trying go make? Do you have a specific number? I do. When I set out I had 10 cents a day. Then I decided I wanted a dollar a day. Then I got that, and I said ok, my goal is to multiply by 10 and then 10 again . Steps one and two are now done. But I picked systems/methods where people were actually making money . I have not seen ANYBODY holding a $100,000 Pay Per Post check. Or a $100,000 Text Link Ad check. And if I DO see one guy with a big check, then I want to see at least 5 other people holding similar looking checks. (I don’t need to actually see the checks but I want to see SOME kind of track record for a system-other than some typed words about what a person could make using system X or system Y.

So I decided to learn how to make money with Adsense. Even though EVERYWHERE I went out in the blog community people said Adsense was dead . “Oh it doesn’t work anymore!” Are you crazy? This guy made over a hundred grand 3-4 years ago. If you were talking about getting into the auto manufacturing business I might agree with you, THAT system is played out, and the startup cost is insane (ask John DeLorean!). But Google is fine. Google doesn’t get smaller ever year, Google gets bigger every year . What fucking math are they using? Adsense is just fine. Adsense is good enough for me. So Adsense is good enough for you. I mean really. Who the fuck are these lazy asses to determine what does and doesn’t work and they haven’t’ made 100 thousand? Or 50 thousand? Or 10 thousand? I mean unless you’re out there for some years , I don’t think you can make that claim. Anyway, I kept reading how Adsense didn’t work, but I heard about this Shoemoney check. KEEP IN MIND, I didn’t even SEE it until today when I went out and got it for THIS POST. So I was going just on the idea that that much money could be made . But I had faith. BASED on fact. I’m not blind. And YOU’RE not blind. We can all see that Google is growing. And we all know the money is there. The TRICK was “how am I going to extract it.” And so day after day-all day, all night I researched. What have you been doing with your time? How have you not reached the same conclusions and discovers as I did? I mean, I wanna know.
