Get Discouraged. Just Quit. I Dare You.

You’re probably at a time in your online career where you have created a site, generated some content, done a massive amount of link building – or so it feels like – and nothing has come of all your hard work. Heck, maybe you’re a PPC wizard (or trying to be) and you have spent tons of money with hardly any return. Sound like you? Keep reading, you lazy bastard!

So what are you going to do? Quit! I dare you! Screw that. I’ll make it a triple dog dare! Making a thousand dollars in one day (consistently) is for someone else. You can’t make 1K a day unless you have some sweet title like CPA, MBA, PHD, or BAMF in front of your name, can you? Of course you can’t. That’s what everyone tells you. Who hasn’t seen the statistics flashed all over the evening news that say “People that get their associates degrees make $1,000,000 more, on average, in their life spans than someone who doesn’t graduate high school”? It’s talked about at church, and just about everywhere else. So why would you be able to make it without an education?

Well, ladies and gentlemen. I guess you can’t ever be too sure of yourself, but over the last few months, I’ve seen the awesome money making powers of affiliate marketing, and I’m convinced that I can make a career out of it. A very fruitful, lucrative one. Here’s to telling the world, and the educational system to shove it up their . . . whatever. You get the point.

Goal in life: Become a millionaire without the help of “Higher Education”.

After reaching millionaire status, I will then proceed to go back to school. For fun. To show everyone that it’s a waste of time – that is, if you count on school being the answer to all of your problems/questions in life.

I guess school is a great place to go if you plan on working for someone else – not to mention, for pennies in most casese – your whole life. Or if you have no idea what you want to do in life. Keep in mind: not knowing what you want to be when you grow up, and going to school to help you solve that problem, will most likely result in further confusion, and no money in the bank.

As for me: Forget that. I’ll take destiny into my own hands. Become a millionaire. Work for myself. Wake up when I want to. Drive the car I want to drive. Vacation whenever I want to. Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. What about you?

    It’s the “HOW” that is the hard part for me – you’ve got tons of good stuff on here though – keep up the great work!
