No Big Money With Adsense

To day I wanted to know how much I could earn with google adsense. Let me tell you, it was not pretty what I read. There are stories about getting your account canceled; money deduction from your earnings; and people clicking on your ads just to get you baned. The worst thing is that google just wants you to leave the investigative part to you.
Every where you go on the web you see people trying to sell you the ultimate way to make yourself rich with the latest Adsense program. Thinking that they exaggerate a lot, I started wondering what the average adsense earnings are. What I found instead, was a lot of people complaining about Google. Most of the complaints, are about their accounts being disabled for no apparent reason. It seems that the google people can shut you down any time they want. The Google adsense team will not even pay you your money. I sure do not want to commit fraud. I do want to make money! But it looks that adsens is not the way to go.

The most conspicuous thing about this google attitude is that when you are approaching the 100 dollars earnings, thats when they pull the plug. I wonder if they give back the money to the adwords people. Many guys said that even when your account is disabled, the ads keep appearing on your web page. So all the clicks the ads get, are 100% revenue for google. No wonder why google is the number one marketing machine. And google is always reporting more and more profits per quarter. So instead of wasting my energy with adsense, I am going out and purchase some goog shares. This guys are acting like a dictator.

So there you have my friends, if you want to make money like a Benjamin, you'd better stayed away from all the "get rich with adsense e-books". Since the theme of this blog is following and doing the ways other rich people made there money, we need to find a way to emulate the google guys.

Any ideas?

The Biggest Pyramid Scheme of it All!

What a big lie! The economy is growing. The stock market is soring to new records. The US is again heralded as the world's biggest and most competitive economy. We are assured that we are richer than ever before and getting richer by the day. According to our "elected president" George W. Bush. Yet we are also told there is no longer enough money to provide an adequate education for our children, health care (Just this week, Mr. Bush just vetoed a bill to provide kids with hearth care) and safety nets for the poor (Do you think you will see your SS check? Dream on!), protection for the environment, parks (What happened to the KYOTO Treaty?), a living wage for working people, public funding for the arts and public radio (Last year the GOP wanted to cut funding for PBS.), or adequate pensions for the elderly. According to the official wisdom, even though richer (My house is worth 750k yet I am struggling to make the monthly mortgage payment.), we can no longer afford what we once took for granted. How is this possible? What's gone wrong?

A quick hint. The problem most definitely is not a lack of money. Uncle Sam can print as many bills as he wishes. The world's 450 billionaires alone have combined financial assets greater than the combined annual incomes of half the planet.

The problem is this: a predatory global banking system, drooling and helping the billionaires to squeeze more profit without caring for the people and environment. They just want to find cheaper fastest way to make more money no matter who gets stepped on.

The most scary part is that so many of us want to emulate this modern heroes.It starts, in part, from our failure to recognize that money is not wealth. Wealth is something that has real value in providing for our families and our well beings. Modern money is only a number on a piece of paper or an electronic trace in a computer that by social convention gives its holder a claim on real wealth. But if there is not a way to keep that wealth in the local community, how are we as a country going to satisfy the claims (all the money floating around) to a piece of that wealth. In our confusion we focus on the money to the neglect of those things that actually sustain a good life.

It is striking how difficult our very language makes it to express the critical difference between money and real wealth. Picture yourself alone on a desert island with nothing to sustain yourself but a large trunk filled with bundles of hundred dollar bills. The point becomes immediately clear.

During a visit to Malaysia some years ago I met the minister responsible for forestry. In explaining Malaysia's forestry policy he observed that the country would be better off once its forests were cleared away and the money from the sale was stashed in banks earning interest. The financial returns would be greater. The image flashed through my mind of a barren and lifeless world populated only by banks with their computers faithfully and endlessly compounding the interest on the profits from timber sales.

The importance of the difference between money and wealth is not limited to people who find themselves stranded on desert islands. It is basic to understanding why the more money we have as a nation the less we can afford. It is as well a key to understanding the underlying pathology of the global economic system.

First paid computer repair job

Hi! I am posting to day just for the sole reason that I got paid! And this made me very happy!
To day, I went to take back my neighbor's computer. It needed some major work. Some idiot told her that she needed a piece of software to keep the devil from getting in to her son's mind. What the HELL? What he did was to mess up the computer big time.
The software that this fellow was talking about was nothing but blocking internet access in the computer. Oh! by the way, he wanted 1500 for the said software. He deleted the drivers for the network card. He also messed up the audio card. Apparently he heard the devil speaking through the speakers. This guy is a real piece of work! Watch out! He is still out there.
I tried to fix the computer at her house. When I saw that the machine needed a lot of time and effort, I decided to bring it home.
Total time to repair the pc was about 2 hours. But, I left it in top shape. I repartition the hard drive. Updated windows with the latest security patches and all. With all this, everybody was happy. And the real deal came next.
I did not know how much to charge her. I could have charge by the hour. May be by calling Geek Squad to find out what the rate is per hour, would have been a good idea. Instead, I just threw the first amount that came to mind: 50.00.

What do you guys think? Did I charge her too much? You may ask yourselves. What does all this have to do with making it big? Well, to day I found out that working for my self, the sky and my energy are the limits to be financially well off. I can make more money doing side work and staying on my job. But, if I keep working this way, I will never be a Benjamin. What I need is to get a bunch of guys to do the dirty work for me.
Mr. Adam Smith ( the father of capitalism) said: "If you want to get rich, you have to live off of other people's work". If I could only get started getting all sort of referrals for computer repairs, it would be a matter of putting a crew together and out sourcing the work.
So, let me be blunt; "You want to get wealthy? Figure out a way to make people work for you and pay them peanuts".
Do you guys know anybody that has made tons of money this way? Don't be shy! Post your stories.

"Knowing how to cut corners"

   In the persuit to become a Benjamin, I started reading about famous rich people.  It turns out that most of the poeple who have gotten really rich, have done so not 100% legally. I guess their modo is "It is not a crime, until you get caught".
 One of them is Joe Kennedy! How did the Keneedies got to be so rich? By smuggling alcohol! Once again he used the power of social networks. J. K. knew people in power. He was sleek and witty when it came to grease politicians and bribe the police. Did he ever get caught? NO.

So the firts thing to learn is not to get caught! The second thing is to find a not so legal activity that can make you some money. Can you think of any? Or better yet, have you done a shady deed that made you some moola?

  Please go ahead and share your wisdom and how to be like Benjamin F. ( I could swear that he did not stay 100% on the legal side of the law.)
