If you have never even touched a computer before, this guide is for you.
This is a wealth building guide that is NOT designed for MBAs or computer majors. It is for your average Joe (or Jane). If that sounds like you, then it is for you.
If you have wasted your time and money on any other books and courses, but the only thing you accomplished is racking up credit cards, then this book is for you.
If you cannot understand instructions like, “Take the tracking pixels and imbed them into your page and you are good to go,” then this book is for you.
If you are sick of tired of everyone telling you what to do but not telling you HOW to do it, then this book is for you.
If you want exact step by step actions you need to take to gain wealth, then this book is for you.
If you hope to become a multi-millionaire in just 1 or 2 years, then this book is NOT for you. It nearly always takes much more time.
Who am I? I am a preschool teacher. Seriously! I am a preschool teacher, but not the type you may think. I do not talk about “rainbows and unicorns” and “happy happy time”. I teach my students Japanese, Spanish, and German. They know the moons of Mars and which body organ is need to control sugar levels. They do sit up drills, running, agility training, and head to head physical competitions. I once heard a father say that this was not a preschool but rather a mixture of military basic training and Baby College. At the age of 6, my students take a 5 hour written exam with an average score of about 80%. That, trust me, is really good for a 6 year old child.
“So how is a guy who is a talented preschool teacher going to help me make money?” you may be asking. Well, I am not JUST an average preschool teacher. I actually wanted to become a doctor, but having no practical abilities, I decided to join the Marines for some “hands on” experience. After the Marines, I did all types of jobs from dishwashing, cleaning toilets, and loading frozen pork bellies (the non happy jobs) to working as a private caregiver, assembling radio station components, and doing home work assignments for wealthy but dumb college students (the happy jobs)
Now years later, after lots of fun things (when I say that, I really mean NOT fun things) I am sitting here at a desktop computer, just getting ready to teach you how to make money. Let me give you a heads up on something. If someone says they want to teach you how to make money, the first thing that should pop into your head is (drum roll) …Does this guy actually have any money or is he just going to make all of his money from trying to teach ME how to make money?…
Hmm! That is a good question. Does the guy who is teaching you actually have wealth? Well let me think, money is important for wealth and freedom of time is important.
Let me see how much money I have in my billfold right now… a little under $4,000 (note, do not carry more than that in the USA, there are laws that allow the police to take away your money if they see a bunch of cash…suspected dealer, something stupid like that.) My bills are paid, and I just bought 1 million shares of a stock I think may do well in the future. (Note that is play money, equivalent to gambling if you do not know exactly what you are doing.)
What else did I say shows wealth…time right! I recently took off about 40 days. When I say took off 40 days I mean no internet access, no money making work, no contacting customers etc. and it did not affect my income at all. I just flew to a couple of different countries, and it was no big deal. Let me tell you, doing things like that is a BIG step up, for a guy who used to clean toilets and load frozen pork bellies just to have enough money to eat.
You have already seen the price of this book. It is FREE. So, you can see I am not making all my money teaching other people to make money. SO, why I am doing it? As you are going through the book, you will not see any little click on spots that encourage you to buy something so I get a commission. There is nothing there. This book does not and never will cost you money. The other following books (many to come) will also be free. So why am I about to teach you how to make wealth of both time and money?
The first reason is that I am extremely annoyed at the so called money gurus who try to teach you how to make a business, or make income at home, or get rich quick. 99% of those guys are completely full of it (you know what I mean). Sometimes they actually know but cannot explain their way out of a wet paper bag. I also hate when they say things like this “just imbed your tracking pixels in your site and you are good to go.” Tell me honestly, when you read techno babble like this, and you are just trying to learn how to do something they said was simple, does it make you want to reach out and give that guy a good slap on the face? Why didn’t they tell you in the ads, you needed an advanced computer degree, before you paid them your money?
Many of the money gurus just give you general theories because they do not want to give away all their wealth secrets, but mostly they are making MOST of their money teaching you how to make money. Ok, I think you get my point on the first reason, now on to the second reason.
The second reason is: I want you to do something for me. Really! I want you to do something for me. You see, most of my life, I have been a lone wolf type of guy. For those of you who do not know what that means, I did everything by myself. I never had partners or high level trusted employees or even bankers (not saying I trusted the bankers. That is a big step). I did everything on my own. In the 1990s I went to a foreign country, started a business and within 3 years my take home was about $20,000 a month (remember, big step up from dishwasher) and enough money to live comfortably
But then, unluckiness hit. When an old military injury flared up, I was unable to work physically or even walk for a long period of time, and I lost everything. Being a lone wolf seems cool at first because you can say, “I did it all, on my own.” BUT it is not cool when you have problems and could use a helping hand. Well, you all are my support grid. I help you, you help me.
You want more clarification on reason #2? Ok. Here it is. Maybe my mother is sick, and I want her to really cheer up. I ask you to send her a get well card. Maybe I have a student who has no confidence and 1,000 “You can do it.” emails would really change her ideas about herself. Maybe I have a friend who is a beginning author with good stuff, so I may tell you to go to an online book site and order this person’s free book on one specific day. OR, maybe I try to get elected and will run for dogcatcher (or governor) and I ask you to vote for me.
Will you do those things for me? Yes, of course you will because I will have taught and trained you how to make money. Your life is easier because of me, so you have no problem sending that get well card, ordering that free ebook, or voting for me as city dog catcher. Now that you know my reasons, shall we get started!
There are little things that we can do, and there are big things that we can do. There is no point talking about say….contacting major manufacturing companies to have them produce something that you put your private label on, or maybe setting up an auto responder (huh what?) because we have not become good at the simple things yet, so we will not yet touch the hard things. We have to learn a lot of information and develop some skills before you can start making money. These lessons will probably amount to about 10,001 steps or more. Also, as I learn new things and new ways to make money, I will also teach them to you.
I will toss in some other hints that some people can use but others cannot. Some of these hints may be of value to you. Use them if you can. If they do not pertain to you, no problem, ignore them.
Do this by yourself, or with a positive and happy person. There are many people who are like emotional vampires. They depress you and suck out all your positive energy. Every moment of the day they complain about how bad things are and they downplay every positive thing you try to do. If you tell them you are working on 10,001 Easy Steps to Wealth, they will tell you that you are an idiot and that you are being duped and were robbed. When you tell them it was free then they will ramble on about wasting your time or being in a mind control experiment or something absolutely stupid like that. You know the type of people I am talking about. Do this alone or with a friend or friends who are positive.
Make a detailed list of your debts (money you owe people, credit cards etc.). Some people are too poor to have even had the opportunity to borrow money. This is a simple step for you because nobody has ever loaned them anything. Some of you will have massive credit card debt. You will not be adding onto that debt here, not with these books. In this step, list all your debts with the highest interest rate debts listed first. We need to slowly eliminate things that are sucking you dry.
As you look at your cards (assuming you have some) put them into 2 piles. If any of the cards have ever dropped your credit line before, put them in the unreliable pile. If they burn you for not having pristine credit, you do not want them. Even though I say you do not want them, do not cancel them at this time. We may need them. If and when we cancel cards there is a very specific way we want to do it. For now, just make the list of your debts, sort out your credit cards, and then work on the other steps.
You need to establish the ability to create a positive habit. On average, it takes about 21 days of continually doing the same thing to make it a habit (we are talking about not fun things). How many times have you started doing a good thing, but then faltered and just kind of forgot about it. We cannot do that here. That makes this step the most important. You need to be able to, AT WILL, establish a new positive habit if you truly want to be successful.
First let me tell you a story, then your action steps.
I worked hard physically as a kid, but the work I did never involved pulling my body upwards, and using those types of muscles. I could easily do 50 pushups or more without even thinking about it, BUT I could not do a single pull up. I had not developed those types of muscles. We had a physical fitness test in my school and even though I did well at nearly everything, I was dead last at doing overhand pull-ups. Only a jump yank could clear my chin above that bar. I decided to change that. That summer, everyday, 3 times a day, I would walk out to the swing set in our front yard. I would climb up on a ladder and hold onto the top bar of the swing set. I did not start at the bottom because I would not be able to do anything but just flop around like a fish. I started with my chin on the bar. My objective (thing I wanted to do) was to lower myself as slowly as I could. Each time I went outside I spent less than 1 minute on that swing set. By constantly lowering myself down, I was letting gravity assist me in developing those muscles.
After a few weeks of summer, my muscles were strong enough I could do 1 perfect form overhand pull-up. By the end of the summer I could do 8. One year later I could do 30 overhand pull-ups and was by far the best in my school. I went from the very worst to BY FAR the very best by devoting a simple 3 minutes a day on what I needed to accomplish. That is what I want from you. Now here is the catch. You cannot do 6 minutes one day and then skip the next day. You cannot forget even one time or you must start over. Keep at this, set aside a certain time everyday to establish your habit. You are not finished with this part 1 guide if you cannot finish all the steps. Do not proceed to book 2 if you cannot finish this step. If you cannot develop the discipline to establish a habit, it will be nearly impossible for you to make great wealth.
This is what I need from you. So everyone does not do something differently, we will practice doing pull-ups. Now is excuse time right. Let’s look at some of the excuses I have seen and my answers to them.
I am too fat and I will break off my arms when I try to go down…
Ok simple. If you are too fat, keep your feet on a chair and support part of your weight on your legs as you are doing the going down part.
I am in a wheelchair, what should I do?
Get a lower bar.
You all get the idea right. If there is some type of problem, then adapt and sidestep the problem. The most important part of this exercise is that you are establishing a habit. Do this for a minute, 3 times a day, for at least 21 days in a row.
When you are done, get ready for book 2. Now next is the kicker. Book 2 is all written (so is 3 and 4 and …) but I am not publishing it until I see 500 down-loads of book 1.
Part of creating great wealth is being responsible with it. That means sharing it. Do you need to give away a bunch of money now? Oh no, just give what you have, your knowledge. Tell your trusted and positive friends (or even strangers) so that they can get a free book on wealth building. Remember that when there are 500 down-loads then Book 2 comes out. Got it?
Remember, getting the next book is something you cannot do alone. As soon as 500 people have downloaded this book, then I will make Book 2 available. Part of making wealth is sharing with your friends and making a mastermind group of people who can work with you and support you. You have avoided negative people while taking these action steps, and now it is time to find positive people and share with them.
I have had people ask me, “What will we be learning and doing? Will we make e-books, printed books, affiliate marketing, drop ship sales businesses, brick and mortar business, service businesses, product based businesses, making videos, making music, taking modeling pictures, buying real estate, selling real estate, learning how to buy stocks, plant trees?
When I answer “yes” then off course they say, “Which one?” Well, ALL of them and more. That is what we will be learning. All of those things and more will be in the 10,001 Easy Steps to Great Wealth.
Now, go back through this book, make sure you have completed all the action steps (maybe you are still working on the 21 day habit making step) and then tell people to download the first book so you can start Book 2.
If you cannot develop the discipline to establish a habit, it will be nearly impossible for you to make great wealth.
Go to your unit administration office and ask them where the education officer is. Make an appointment to see him or her. When you get there, inform the education officer that you want to begin taking the free CLEP and DANTES exams. Schedule one test every month (more if your military time will be ending sooner). Make it a point to take EVERY free test they offer, whether you know it or not. These tests give you free college credit, do not waste this asset. Look at the study guide they provide you. Do the sample testing (there usually is sample testing, ask the education officer) and place the tests in order of simplest first and most difficult at the end. Use your newly developed ability of creating a positive work habit, set aside a short time (15-30 minutes) and study every day. You will notice something happening after a few months. Your brain will be working better, and you will become smarter. Mental pull-ups…If you pass some of these tests, you can get college credit at some universities (details later) then when you submit those college transcripts to your admin office, you can often get promoted faster. I know, I did this and was promoted to Sergeant in just 2 years in a field that normally took 7 years. Worst case scenario is that you fail every test, but your brain gets better. Most people pay $100 or so for each test, but you get them for free.
Get a job, even if you are not physically able, pretend you are. There are even jobs for people who are paralyzed and cannot move. Look in the yellow pages of a phone book at the library or search or have a computer literate person (maybe you, maybe the snot nosed kid playing video games) search the internet for temporary job service agencies. Go there, to EACH one and ask what you need to get registered. If they offer you ANYTHING, take it. Of course always look for something better, but take what you can when you can. Note these are often really fun jobs. I got a job this way that really helped me with food bills. I got a job as a dishwasher at some big company while their dishwasher was on vacation. They had huge serving trays with food that would be thrown away after every mean. I took clean new garbage bags and filled them up with the food, took them home and put them in my free freezer. I had enough food saved up at the end of my 2 week stint to last me nearly a year. Nothing wrong with being poor and scraping by, but it sure is good to leave that and hang out in a First Class airline lounge in a foreign country and relax eating Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
I know a single mother who was unemployed for decades. She had been so abused by both people and the system that she lacked all self confidence and was afraid she could not do anything right. She applied for a temporary position and was soon hired to a position that they felt she could do well in.
She had spent many hours volunteering at a city mission and homeless center and that experience helped propel her to a top spot that paid her about $70,000 salary. Pretty good for a single mom who had been on welfare and housing with a handful of kids and a drunken absentee father.
Oh, this particular woman is one that will be on my list of favors you need to do for me. When her e-book is available to purchase, you all can get a free copy. That will help her because it will boost her to the best sellers list where others can see and buy it after the free promotional period is over.
So, do not just sit around and collect unemployment checks. Make it your full time job to find a full time job, even temporary is good. Making money in other ways is what you will do here, with me, AFTER you get home from your work.
