Think in solutions, not problems.

Everybody always talks about money being the root of all evil.

Money & wealth begins with a state of mind, you have to lose the ‘broke’ mindset to get a ‘rich’ mindset. Having money and earning money is one of the greatest feelings there is on this world. Having no money in your bank and nothing coming in is one of the shittiest feeling you ever have.

Anyone in poverty can really agree with it that having to stress how you are going to eat, paying for a roof over your head or even figuring out how you are going to put gas in your car on your way to work is going to suck. If you are in this situation you have to make sure to get out of it. Figure out what the reason is that you are in this situation. You first have to analyse in what kind of situation you are, this way you can figure out a solution to the problem.

First accept that you are in the gutter, then find out what you can do about it. Today the day you can find everything on the internet. You need to get out of debt because the bills get to high? You can find how to.

You ain’t making enough? You can find how to.

Especially if you live in the west, the odds are ‘very good’ for you. We have the opportunity to change and the capitalism climate accepts it, if you want to make more money in a country like Iraq or Syria its going to be very hard and in such environment you are busy thinking about surviving. If you live in America or another western country, you have all the opportunity there is.

But you have to think! Thinking the correct way will create opportunity’s for you. Don’t say there is no way I can fix this shit, the human brain is very  creative and bright enough to find a solution to every problem as long as you stay positive in it. If you say there is no way, than you are not going to think further and you won’t get a solution for your problem. So stop whining about it and find out what you can control. Don’t stress about things you can’t control.

The issue with this is that eventually the problem will get so big that your stress levels will get an all time high that you’re not able to sleep anymore, any further than this and you will land in the hospital.

So get moving, get your money thoughts straight.

Problems create Solutions.

Focus on what you can change, you’re not stuck in the situation you are in right now. Get out of it, make more money, get out of debt, save some money, move to another location where you can earn more, start a business and provide value for people.


DO IT NOW,

How to get rich from the internet? It’s not as hard as you think.

How to make money on the internet.

The question of becoming rich is so common and one of the most asked questions in the world. especially getting rich from an internet business.

Everybody wants to be rich. Everyone wants to enjoy a great life of no financial stress, having a very nice home, traveling wherever and whenever you want. Stepping into your dream car with your partner and enjoying the freedom you have once finances aren’t an issue.

That’s what money brings.

It brings you value in life to do something ‘your’ way.

Every one wants to live life their own way in whatever form you want.

You most likely want it in a way that you don’t have a boss telling you what time you want to be working and being free to do your own thing. I believe this is what most people are searching for. Not the million dollar yachts, airplanes, buggatis or mansions.

People want to have freedom of choice, without the constrains like lack of funds. The problem with society today is that people are bombarded with a shit load of advertising. Advertising on the radio, on the tv, on the street and the most profitable marketing today is the internet.

And this brings the most unique opportunity the world has ever seen regarding business.

It is the internet.

Every one is on the internet. Even in low income country’s you can see people with their smartphone walking around checking out Google or Facebook.

It’s unbelievable to think people put a smartphone first and food second. Its crazy, but its the truth. Most people even get highly addicted to the internet and social media. You know those people who want to make a selfy every single time.

On https://www.technologyreview.com/ its reported that the average American spends around 24 hours per week on the internet. I even believe that’s a false count, when I take a look wherever I go. Work, friends, family or just outside, every one is on their smartphone almost every single minute of the day.

Once people do nothing, what do they do? Check their phone.

Are you bored? We’ll just gotta check my whatsapp ‘incase’ somebody send a message to me.

Just gotta wait on the bus or train? Hmm, let’s fill up that time with some news searching or scrolling through Facebook for the 177e time.

Knowing this can bring the correct people the way to win. The people who are the go getters, the doers and the winners. These people can profit from the internet addiction.

Normal people look on the internet for information and entertainment. Something you as a winner can provide. Normal people don’t think this way because they learned to ‘work’ for money.

 

You can bring internet value!

What can you think off that brings people value in form of entertainment or information? The sites that you watch can give you that information. Most people who create sites have an idea behind it. The idea to make money, enjoy what they do and share it to other people. This sharing is what is called bringing value.

But there are also different kind of ways to make money on the internet. Take YouTube for example. Take a look at a PewDiePie or whatever the man is called, I don’t give a shit. But we can all learn from what he brings to the table. This guy earns a lot, laughing all his way to the bank while most people who watch him are broke as a joke.

And what does he do?

Making YouTube video’s about gaming and creates his own ‘image’ in these video’s’. That’s just what he does, being himself and creating an image/reputation around it. But don’t think it its very ‘easy’ what he does. There is a lot of editing to be done, filming that goes wrong and it take a lot of time to do it. Where most people leave their job at 5 – 6 o clock. These guys work like 12 hours a day. Still, the entire idea is very simple.

Guys like PewDiePie love their work, unlike most people and he gets paid sincerely for it. That’s why they keep going and working 12 hours a day. These guys get their reward later on. Around 1 million/month this guy makes and most importantly in his own time. Can you begin building 1 – 3 year something and not getting paid, until later? So you are hating on him making money? Well what did you make this year?

So you can definitely learn something about it. You can’t hate on somebody else making money, because you will attract the same mombo jombo that you wish on to others.

The problem with this is that most people don’t believe they can do it. Normal people have been conditioned by society, parents, school and the environment that you need to get a good job to pay the bills.

Of course if you want to pay some bills, you can find a job to do that.

You want to live your life in freedom and not only bills? You need a different direction for that and you should not follow the herd.

Don’t listen to what the average bozo has to say and go your own fucking way. This way you can stand out of the crowd. Stand above the corn field. Create something that lasts you forever.

A job is fine but it won’t bring you a full filling legacy and everlasting happiness. Because the problem with a job is that it limits you to your boss and he’s mood. If you have a very good boss then its a very nice job. But most people don’t have the luxury that includes a good boss. Going your own way is the next best move.

First you have to get rid of those nasty bills that keep you at your job. Meaning kill your huge housing payment, get rid your car payment for your Mercedes that costs you $50.000 and stop spending all that money on useless junk. This way you save your money for an opportunity to do your own business, investing in something useful or go to school for a better job.

The last thing is to get a ‘better’ job because eventually that job is going to suck too. But if it creates more money for you and it is more fun, then you can do it. Use that better job to create a better future, to save your ‘extra’ income that you get from that new job. Maybe you got more free ‘vacation’ days? Use that time for your own business to grow it.

But I wouldn’t recommend going back to school, the average college degree is going to cost a lot of time. Time you could have invested in your business.

After you have saved some money and got rid of your bills, find a way to provide people value on the web. I am of the believe that everybody has something they can provide to people.

How can you get yourself an internet based business and enjoy freedom?

  • What do you do that can help somebody? Maybe you are very technical and are very good in electrical work.
  • Since you have found the thing you would like to do, its time to set it up.
  • Get a LLC from the government and start your own business that provides the electrical work.
  • Go and network around, chances are you already know people who you have helped regarding that work and they can be your recurring customers.
  • Let them network around and do your best to advertise your company to different clients and other people outside of your current client network.
  • Get a website so people can contact you, give ‘basic’ value and information in forms like video’s, how-to’s and pictures of your work. This way you create more advertising for yourself and give people a foundation on where to get in touch with you.
  • Grow your business by hiring other ‘experts’ in your field and start selling tutorials on how people can repair their own stuff, so they can save some money and you can earn from teaching people. This way you can create a forgoing cash flow without you going from place to place.
  • After that you can start counting your cash and enjoying your freedom.

This is just 1 example you can do, there are so many things where you can provide value in. Just like this website. I have created it to provide value in the finance area and to give you an other mindset in how you can make money other than a job. To get you out of the daily rut of living for somebody else.

The features of getting an internet based business:

  • You create your own content, only you, no boss, no constrains.
  • Your income level has no limit, your job is mostly limited by hours and your boss.
  • Freedom to work wherever you are, on a beach in Thailand, in New york city while traveling or in your own house with your family.
  • You can choose whenever you want to work, no 9 – 5, not limited by vacation days or sick days.
  • Income keeps coming in even when you sleep, sick or don’t want to work. Can you do that with your current job? Let that sink in.

So what are you going to do?

Watch 6 hours of tv after work?

Or work your ass off 6 hours a day after work so you can enjoy this :

 

Start enjoying your life now!

What is Minimalism?

Man,

Lets talk a little about minimalism shall we?

We all like stuff. We love our iPhones… we like our nice cars… and the houses o man it is al beautiful.

The problem is, that we get to attached to them.

There are people called hoarders. They take all that stuff and put it at a place they don’t even know where. And it all stockpiles up like nuclear weapons were stockpiled during the cold war.

how-to-find-preppers-in-your-area-fb

I tell you what, I rather be hoarding cash then have 10 stocks off iPad or 100 cans of dried food incase my house get bombed.

At least I can do something with my cash. You can invest that shit.

Anyway, the problem with carrying too much stuff is, it’s always there… You are thinking about it, it costs money and stressing about where to put it. Ah damn, I need another garage for this pile of shit I just bought, you say to yourself. Once you have another garage, you need to pay for that aswell. Another $100 bucks away every month just to hoard your stuff.

Well quit it, what the hell do you need with 2938 cds or 33 pants anyway? Sell it, give it or trash it. And then enjoy your freedom from all this ‘stuff’.

There is a group or cult people talk about and it is called old fashioned Minimalism.

I really love minimalism, all though some people take it way far. Living just with a mattress in a tent is not the idea I have regarding minimalism.

Hell, if you want to do that. Be my guest I don’t give a fuck.

But personally I also love the finer things in life. The idea is minimize to maximize. I understand that you want a nice house or be driving a BMW, and that is cool.

But learn to save on stuff or things you don’t like. If you can save yourself $50 every month because you change from a 5mb/sec to a 1mb/sec internet, then do it.

Just keep your old cell Phone that is just working fine for $40 and save yourself $1.000 for not changing to a ‘new’ Phone. Crazy how expensive these things are nowadays. By saving that kind of money, you can save yourself half a month time at work. So would you rather work or don’t spend that money for junk and save yourself time?

How much is your time worth to you?

You need to over think every purchase of trading that money for work. Work is not bad, there are parts of it everyone enjoys. But you ain’t wanna be trading that time meaningless to pay for your shit every month.

Lets say you make $20/Hour , you work 8 hours so you’ll be getting $160 a day. Then the Tax man is gonna get hes share, that is around $40 bucks in my country. So that means your netting an average of $15/Hour.

After a long week of working hard and hustling with your boss man, you get $600 on your account. Gotta pay them bills and car payments right! But your o so tired from working and don’t wanna be cooking all day, so you go to a restaurant with your partner.  After paying $100 for eating out, you think to yourself now we are here in town, we can walk a little bit and check out the stores.

So you and your girl go the electronic store and she says what a nice Iphone. I would buy it if I was you! And you are over thinking because its $1.033 this time. But what the hell man, she said it wasnt a bad idea. So you get a conformation to buy it and your heart is saying buy it. Gotta enjoy life you say!

Later that night you realized that you only had $300 after paying the bills. And you still went out to pay $1.133, netting you -$833 that week.

For only that week you have to work 3 more weeks to finally pay it off. You also believe that is dumb? Sure it is, if you want to go eating out with your girlfriend and enjoy that. Getting value out of a meal together once a week. Then sure!

It’s all about trade offs and what you really love to pay for. Personally I would take the dining out experience over a new IPhone everyday. Especially with prices like nowadays. Once you have a lot of money and you want to buy that IPhone without hurting your finances, you can buy it way easier and without stress.

Once your out of the zoo that is materialism, you can really set yourself up to be a unique ‘you’. Your friends are stilling buying all that shit what the marketing monster sells, but you are as free as a bird. When you cut your attachment to stuff, you have created freedom.

The money that you save from all these things the world has the offer, you can use it for what really fuels your fire on this planet. What do you really like? Don’t forget that what you really like can change in time, with the seasons. Summer & Winter. Night & Day. Hot & Cold. Up & Down.

  • If you are in your 20’s saving and buying experiences like traveling can be high on the list. (Personally we are in this stage).
  • Once you reach the end of the 20’s and going in your 30’s maybe you want to buy a house and settle down for a family.
  • After that you will be busy getting your legacy up and going, this going forward until your retirement age.
  • When you enter the age where your legs are too sloppy to move, then traveling we’ll get harder. Sure you have all the time in the world in retirement, but most likely your health won’t agree with your choices of Climbing mountains.

 

No disregard to elderly people, some of them have body’s and health a lot of young people can be jalouse of.

It’s all about freedom of choice. That is what money is for, fueling what you really want in life.

At this current moment my girlfriend and I really want to travel more, learn more from different kind of country’s, cultures and seeing nature at its finest. The second goal is building an income/business outside of our day jobs so we can have more freedom to do so. Saving a lot of money on our expenses and not buying crap every time we are in town.

On the other side we are also saving to buy a small house so we can save on rent, rent is very high here and we are off the believe that we are just throwing that money away every month. Renting is good, if you want to stay on a very short time frame. But we are staying here for a little while.

This is the reason we like Minimalism, we want to use our Money for things we really value.

We don’t value ‘stuff’ like a new Phone, new car or a new house. That doesn’t mean we don’t like it. A new car is very nice to drive and the features they provide are great! But I just can imagine paying so much money for something and a year later the value of that drops like a rock. It makes me ‘Uncomfortable’, that is what important. If you feel Uncomfortable once you want to buy something or you already bought it and you keep thinking about it, stressing you out. Then that’s your gut saying you made a wrong decision. You need to love the decision and have thought it over if it would bring you long-term happiness.

Do you save a lot of money on a House and you think one yearly vacation is enough? Hell, then that dream car you just bought is fine man. Enjoy it !

Like Apple and you ain’t paying that much in rent every month so you can stack money? Sure buy the new Phone every year.

Love a nice house where your family can comfortable live life and got a beater old car just for getting to work? Sure enjoy the nice house where you can rest and enjoy your family after work.

It’s all about choice in your life, that’s where the money is for.

Remember that.

Until next time.

Why we work

You don’t want to work ?

Why not?

The reason most people go to work is that they need to provide and pay for stuff every month. Which is a shit reason to work, I tell you that.

I can completely understand that you need to work to provide for yourself and your family. Those are things you need to keep up and if you like your job then you will enjoy that.

But wouldn’t it be better if you can build something for yourself and not stuck to a 9 – 5. At least build something next to your job so you can have ‘more’ control over your life.

When you control more in life, you have more choices and you can provide a way better life for your family. Once you got have that, you can do what you want.

A lot of people get payed good money but they waste it on dumb shit. So the first choice you have to make is to get out of that sticky situation. You maybe got $2.500 a month coming in your bank account and wasting $3.000 a month… Wtf are you doing?

First get insight how much is coming in and where the hell you are spending that $3.000. Spending most of it on your Housing or your Car? Check this out:

When you got that figured out, find a way to sell those things and find a cheaper alternative. You have to live like nobody else does, once you get out of that negative situation, you can live life like nobody can.

And don’t even get me talking about credit card debt.

Get out of that situation now… you are making somebody else very rich, giving them 17% every time you pay your bill. Its insane.

Mostly its bullshit crap you could have payed cash for if you just delayed getting that new iphone, iPad or tv for a few months. That ‘new‘ thingy is by the way not ‘new‘ in like 2 months. After those 2 months Apple is already busy thinking about the new marketing strategy, so you can swipe your bondage card once again. Swiping yourself to work another 50 hours this week for that fucking phone….

Get rid of it.

Then save all of that money you don’t spend anymore. Once you have some money you can buy yourself the freedom of choice. To choose a better job or no job and focus that 50 hour a week on your own business. If you have $30.000 in the bank and little to no expenses you can go your own way.

You can also choose not to work for sometime and experience free time for traveling or experiences.

But.

A big but,

there is a double-edged sword with ‘not’ working.

If you think drinking pin a colada all day on the beach is something to live for, your living a very shallow life. You don’t want to die away that way, you need a purpose in your life and the best way is creating something. Once you build something ‘Great’, you can use that to inspire others and give back, like Arnold Schwarzenegger always said.

And this is true, I’m not some old grey guy that is giving you this advice. But once I helped somebody with something, I always feel great. Especially if you can find somebody that takes it at the correct way.

When you see this person thanking you for whatever you meant for them, you get the greatest feeling ever.

And this is the ‘purpose’ of good work.

No matter in what way you achieve this, through a ‘job’ or at your own ‘business’ .

Personally I believe your own business is way better, because there is no BOSS holding you off on your decisions.

in ‘Your’ business, you are the one making the shots. Not some jerk that can hold you back just because you wasn’t on that team building day, kissing his ass.

You know that feeling right? Your girlfriend, boyfriend, son or daughter comes to you, because they want some quality time with you. Your really love to go and cuddle or whatever you are into. Spending just time right? We’ll aint gonna happen because you need to be going or else your gonna late for work. Come on, that’s no life!

Enjoy your work, if you don’t, find an other way. Don’t give up, because you have your entire life the time to find out. Ain’t nobody too young or too old to start something.

The thing that you need to start is in your ‘gut’. You don’t know what you need to do? Well you already know every time you ask that question. What is the biggest thing you like and love doing? The thing that everybody comes to you for. You are the expert at that ‘thing’.

Selling furniture, fixing cars or cutting grass. Whatever you can think off, you can monetize on that.

So, get out of debt, be a minimalist, find a way to become good at something and give back!

That’s the correct reason to go to ‘WORK’.

Stay busy and creating,

Until later,

How to achieve Freedom

Freedom,

what does that mean for you?

Does that mean having a large housing payment to live in your enormous house on the mountain, overviewing Beverly Hills?

Does that mean having a big car payment so you can enjoy your new and depreciating car that you drive everyday to work, to impress your co workers?

Does that mean that you only take 1 holiday per year with your family because after a year of paying the bills there is nothing left over?

Does that mean that you work every week 60 – 80 hours to keep up with your bills and the Joneses that are stockpiled up to their eye balls into debt?

debt

Freedom, what it means for me?

It does mean having a small housing payment so I don’t live for my damn house and can save for my Freedom.

It does mean paying cash for a damn used car so there is little depreciation and you don’t have to work to pay an extra $500 every month. So you can put that $500 dollars a month to work for your Freedom.

It does mean having the monthly cashflow surplus so you can take yourself and your family more on holiday, so you can enjoy your damn life and your Freedom.

It does mean that you don’t have to slave your life away for a boss that doesn’t even appreciate you. Cut your work hours in half and take your Freedom to do whatever you want with the remaining hours, like building your hobby into a business.

euros-768x480

Once you have your freedom, you can buy whatever the fuck you want.

Cash is king, debt is dumb.

So stack that paper and enjoy your Freedom.

Until next time,
