Why is it the best time to become an Entrepreneur? Because it sounds fancy and it’s the cool thing right now, duh.. WRONG! It’s because right now in this very moment we are so closely connected than ever before! Right now, writing this in Ohio, if someone challenged me to become best friend’s with someone over in Beijing, China. I could, very easily. The people that figure out how to utilize the internet as a tool to create a steady income right now are going to have it made in say, 5 to 10 years. Why’s that? Well, it only makes sense. All eyes are always on the internet. Whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, InstaGram, WordPress, Tumblr, etc. No one looks at billboards anymore, no one watches commercials anymore. In 5-10 years we probably won’t even have TVs anymore. Everything will (or should) be set up through one big main computer in the living room. Just my opinion though. Heck I bet more than half of you barely watch TV right now anyways. We can just get on Netflix and roll through a whole season of Prison Break in 1 day.
People need to get with the times. It’s 2016 ya’ll!! It’s the age of information and information is power! Unfortunately, it’s also the age if ignorance and most people don’t like change. But the worlds about to change FAST, don’t get left behind!
Also, who likes to be told what they’re worth? You, my friend, are worth $13.75 an hour. You, my friend, are working to survive and pay the bills. If you are working a job just to pay your bills, support your family, and put food on the table you really need to listen closely. Heck, all of you need to listen closely.
There’s no doubt about it $20 today isn’t what $20 was in the 90s. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Our economy is rigged. People do not have an equal opportunity to make it towards the top. Or so we have been brought up to think at least… just hear me out.
You ever hear of the Federal Reserve? You ever hear of a Pyramid Scheme? The definition of a Pyramid Scheme on Webster’s is this: a dishonest and usually illegal business in which many people are persuaded to invest their money and the money of later investors is used to pay the people who invested first. Hmm.. Well, the Federal Reserve should be illegal but since it’s the biggest Pyramid Scheme of all time and basically runs the whole planet it’s not. We invest “fake” money into stocks, banks, houses, etc. Playing this make pretend game that the extremely wealthy have created. It’s just an exchange of cash from one person to the other without a tangible product such as gold or silver to back it. Crazy right?
Now why in the heck did I just bring all this up? Because to play the game, you have to know the game. People are finally waking up to the fact that, yes, this is a game and most of us are just the pawns in a chess match.
So, what’s the solution? Become an Entrepreneur. Become self-sufficient. Create your own Economy.
Lucky for all of us there’s this Industry that has already been dubbed The Business of the 21st Century. That Industry is Network Marketing.
Woah! You mean one of those pyramid things? You seriously better have not asked that question after just reading about the Federal Reserve! haha 🙂
Let’s dabble around the idea that it is a pyramid scheme for a second though. If the Federal Reserve is a privately owned business and they own over half of the world wouldn’t it be a pretty damn good idea to join one of these pyramid things?
In my opinion they’re not though, for these reasons. 1) We are vacating the corporate slave cycle. 2) We are putting money into people’s pockets who actually need the money and care about THE PEOPLE. 3) We actually sell a tangible product. This isn’t just a flow of cash from one investor to the other. 4) You get paid for what you’re actually worth. Not just what someone decides you are worth. 5) You don’t have to go to college just to end up with more debt than you can handle. Honestly, there’s so many reasons why/how Social Network Marketing could level out the playing field in our economy to the rest of the 97% of us but I’m going to leave it at that for now.
Sure, it’s shaped like a pyramid but so is our economy. Learn to play the game my friend, you won’t regret it.

The pursuit and purchase of physical possessions will never fully satisfy our desire for happiness. It may result in temporary fulfillment, but the happiness found in buying a new item rarely lasts.
We all feel richer on payday than we did the day before, but that instant gratification (that comes with out-of-this-world price tags, designer shoes and trendy clothes) is satisfying enough to be called addiction, or a bad habit. That guilt or the two voices over your shoulders is a sign that you know spending most or all of your paycheck on material items might not be the wisest choice.
It is important to remember the value of investing in once-in-a-lifetime experiences and precious memories with our loved ones over indulging on the next hot item, for, as they say, money cannot buy happiness.
Living means experiencing, not material objects
Francisco State University, people understand that this life we get to live is about creating memories and not the glitz and glamour of trendy clothes and technology. But again, it is easy to get wrapped up in purchases that we will ultimately regret.
If we think about it, when we are 90 and on our deathbeds, will we cherish that new iPad or gold watch or the memories and moments we created with the people who made an impact on our lives?
Focus on your happiness, not what makes you attractive
In this day and time, many people make decisions based on society’s influences, making that fancy car and hip sunglasses not only more expensive than they need to be but also attractive and trendy to the world.
But who cares about what the world thinks? Are we willing to burn holes in our pockets in exchange for an Instagram post with 1,000 likes?
We are more valuable as a product of this society, than the human-made products that we desire (and never really need). I cannot say I do not like beautiful things, and it is fine to reward yourself, but our bigger investments should go toward making life unforgettable and worth living versus having that temporary satisfaction from things.
Dr. Thomas Gilovich is a psychology professor at Cornell University who has been studying the link between money and happiness. He told Fast Company:
Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods. You can really like your material stuff. You can even think that part of your identity is connected to those things, but nonetheless they remain separate from you. In contrast, your experiences really are part of you. We are the sum total of our experiences.
Forget the fancy things and explore the world
Well, this part can be difficult, or it can be simple. There are always excuses on how exploring the world costs a lot of money, yet you can buy those pair of Jordan shoes and Louie Vuitton bags for the same money but less real value.
Drop the need for expensive things, and pick up your luggage to gain irreplaceable experiences. Business Insider found that CEOs around the world look for their employees to achieve several familiar things in their 20s, one being traveling and broadening one’s thinking.
If even the greats say so, maybe you should at least just try cutting the need for material things and instead, use that plastic card on a trip to a place you’ve never been. You might be surprised at how much more value you gain in your life.
