Law of Averages

Dreams


Did you know that only 10% of people reach their dreams? Did you know that there are sacrifices to making money and deciding if you are going to make a success of something or not? Did you know that you have a choice to make? It is all up to you!

I am getting to know more and more about averages. How many times does it take before someone buys something from you, how many people does it take to buy something? It seems to be the same all the way around. Everything I am finding has this.

So what is the law of averages?


It says that 90% of the people will fall behind or not achieve their goals in life. They will not do the things to succeed to make their dreams come true. The will come up short when it comes to their dreams, goals, or anything else in life. And 10 % will achieve success.

 

 

So it seems that the law of averages not only works for sales but in everything that we do. There are many books out there that talk about the law of averages. One of these books is written by Stephen Covey called the 90/10 principle. Unfortunately, this is an older book and is no longer in print.


However, there is another good book that is on the market. It is the “Flaw of Averages”.

These are good books. They bring about some things that you never thought about. I had not realized that this is really what happens in life. Everything is based on the law of averages. It is amazing to see that.

My Challenge to you


Next time you are out and about, see how the law of averages works around you. see where it is and where it is not. I will venture to guess that more times that the law of averages will be there.

So, my question to you is are you a part of the 90% that will not do the work or achieve success the 10 % that does? Are you part of the 90% that will not make it work and give up, or the 10% that will persevere and go through the tough times to make it happen? Only you know what you can put up with, how strong you are, and how much you want to sacrifice for your dream. It is your choice. Only you can choose this. No one else can do it for you.

  • There are a lot of courses that you can take.
  • They do have a path that you can take and suggestions for different areas to take as well.

AMAZON , Product Overview

Okay, what is Amazon? Interesting that you asked. When I first heard people Amazontalking about Amazon, I thought about South America. So if this is you, well, I am sorry to tell you, people are not talking about the place in South America. They are not talking abouAmazont South America. Sorry. But they are talking about an internet site. Although, The Amazon River basin is  a really nice place to see and visit. But they are not talking about this area.

Amazon is the largest internet based retailer. It sells things from shoes to cars, food to toys and jewelry. It is a buyers dream. It is a place where you can purchase books, toys, jewelry, DVD’s, games, apparel, electronics, music, ebooks, blue ray DVD players and recorders, almost anything. You can search for almost anything and find it on Amazon.

Sad news folks. TSU is no longer working. As of August 31, 2016, this site has been disabled.

crying sad face

I am not sure if they will bring it back or not, but as of this writing, it no longer is available. Just wanted to let you know. This is sad, because it was a good site. But like they say, this too shall pass. And so with a sad face I want to say, good-bye, tsu! I, for one, will miss you.

spongebob tsuTsu.co Review


Name: Tsu (pronounced sue)
Website: Tsu.co
Price: Free
Founded by Sebastian Sobczak, Tsu (pronounced Sue)
Overall Rank: 0 out of 100

Tsu, Product Overview


Tsu is a social network and payment platform. It is similar to Facebook, only you get paid for it. You get a certain amount for each like that you have, give or get. You get money for each post you put on the feed. It has changed dramatically since I first started on it. Now you can pick your choice of different feeds to go through, similar to Pinterest in a way. You still have the basic feeds only now you can like foods, animals, arts, communities, entertainment & music, giving, health, humor, news& politics, Science & Tech, Sports, style, or travel & nature. (I had not been on my site for a while. When I was on it last these things were not there. This is kind of neat. I am glad I went back to check it out.) You get a certain amount of money per thing you do.read surf and get paid
Okay, now this is neat. I was away from Tsu for about 3 or 4 months (which it showed me) and I had about 1.971 in my “Bank” now I just checked and I am up to $7.614. That is good for not being active on the account for 3 to 4 months. Okay. how to make money using tsuThey have this thing called a bank. It is where your money is kept track of. When you get up to I think it is $100.00, you can either spend it on different causes or deposit into your bank account. (I have not done this yet. I have not gotten up that far.) Anyway, It also has an analytics, you can see your messages, channels you have, people you are following, or go to the news feed. There are ads on the site as well. You can even advertise on Tsu. You can cash in your money any time, but the maximum they want you to keep in your bank is $100.00.


Here is a video on what Fox News has to say about it:

 


The Good:

  • You can make money from Tsu.
  • It is a social media and you can talk to people about anything.
  • It is growing.facebook like tsu share
  • You can still earn money on Tsu even if you have not been on it for a while.
  • You can add friends and family to your site
  • Their biggest competitor is FaceBook. (Not sure if this is a good or a bad.)
  • You can go back to a prior post that you put on or someone else put on
  • It tracks how many people have gone to your posts.
  • You can review anything you put on the site.
  • They have upgraded it to be a lot better. (When I went back to it, I was surprised to see the difference it is now.)

The Bad:

  • You will not get rich from Tsu
  • Sometimes it comes up as a scam if you try to advertise it on other sites.
  • It takes a while to make money on itdollars and cents
  • Not easy to get onto
  • The “Bank” is set up where you make money by doing things, entering contests, or just posting something or sharing something.
  • You have to be invited to get on.

 

Who is Tsu For?


Tsu is for anyone who likes social media. It is similar to Facebook. It does tend to be more influenced by artists of all types. Photos are welcome and they recommend using your own pictures. 7 side affects

Tsu Tools & Training


There are some tools and training not much. You can ask others how to do something.

TSU Support


TSU has a search area where you can type in what you are searching for.  The main support is from the people who are on the site. Since this is a feed kind of social network, there really is no support on it. It is not like Wealthy Affiliate where you can get help just by typing in a question.

TSU Price


Does not cost a thing. Sign up for free. Then have a good time. Meet people, talk to people and even share things with people.

My Final Opinion of Tsu


I like Tsu.co. It is a site where you can meet people. You can respond to other people’s information. You can post your opinions and views on the site. People are very friendly. It is also fun if you have time for it. With the new updates, you can choose what you want to look at and you can see different areas. The site has been categorized into different headings. There is one where it shows food, humor, art, entertainment, health, etc. It is a research tool, social network, and a way to make money all rolled up in one. Of course, you don’t make much money, especially right away, but every little bit counts.

Similar to Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy AffiliateWith Wealthy Affiliate you are learning about how to make a website, with Tsu.co you are just sharing what you know.

Tsu is a social media aimed towards people socializing and sharing things they learn about or things that are going on in their world. There are contests which you can participate in, and they are not hard. Most of the time it is like putting a picture up and other people vote on which one they like. The winner gets like a dollar for their bank. tsuimage

Ad Viralizer, Product Overview


Ad Viralizer is an advertising for free leads.  This does not mean that they are good leads. It enables you to view other people’s websites and they get to view yours.international advertising

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

• It is free. No upgrades or upsells.
• It can create an endless amount of traffic to your website.
• It uses an URL Cloaker that helps to protect you from scams.
• They have linked programs. Which are also free to join and interlinked.
• You can build downlines in several traffic exchanges.

The Bad:

• The main bad point I see with this is that if you don’t have anyone to click on your link and support your link, you don’t get your website looked at. And if no one sees your website then you don’t get any referrals or traffic.
• You don’t know if the people looking at your site are good prospects or not. It generates traffic if done correctly, but you don’t know if any of that traffic will buy anything from your site.struggling student
• You have to look at 11 seconds worth of other people’s ads or websites.
• You don’t know if any of the sites you are looking at are legit or not. But you don’t have to click on any of the sites unless they interest you.
• It could be annoying to go through and look at the ads that other people have put on the site. But then again, you could put your site on it and click through the ones above you and not watch any of them too.

Who is AD VIRALIZER For?


Ad Viralizer is for anyone looking to increase traffic to their website and does not care what kind of traffic they get. It has its good and bad.traffic

AD VIRALIZER Tools & Training


There is no training, at least none that I have found. So if you don’t know that you have to use something to get the first at least 10 people to look at your site, well, it could be a bust. But then again, you are not paying for anything either. viral expressHow does that saying go? You get what you pay for? That goes true here. I know this because I signed up, and so far, no one has even looked at it. So either everyone has it, or no one cares to use it. It could become annoying, though.

AD VIRALIZER Support


There really is no support for this ad. But then again, what kind of support do you need? Well, I would like to have something that helps you to find where things are on the site. But then again, what do you want for nothing. I did find a quick video which I will share here with you. See link below. It is only 14 seconds long. And it does not really tell you much in the way of it either. But it is a cute video.

 

AD VIRALIZER Price


This is free. No up-sells, no asking for money. It is totally free, except for your time. There is where the price is. It is not in money but time.balloon free

My Final Opinion of AD VIRALIZER


This is like a free multi-level marketing scheme, only difference is that you are not putting any money into it. So really, it is kind of like free traffic. There are downlines and up lines. No one is putting any money into it so I would not call it a scam. There is absolutely no money being exchanged between you and anyone else. The onlyinternational advertising time that money would be changing hands is if you chose to purchase something from any of the sites that you look at. It is not a bad thing to have if you are starting out. It could be good if you know someone or if you use the banner links. But if you don’t do anything with it, well, it just wastes your time then.

VERDICT:

This is a legit site. However, some of the links that you watch may not be legit. This is really kind of different. For an ad, I would say try it out. Click here to get the link to try it. You won’t lose money with it, that is for sure. So if it does nothing for you, well, you did not lose anything. Legit pic

It is an advertisement after all. Or is it? It may be something to try with your Wealthy Affiliate site. I would like your opinion of this. If you try it out, let me know how you do. Thanks.

Just Do It – Book Review

Wow

We have been listening to a book. This one is named “Just Do It!” It is a Donald Trump’s Mastery Class book by Eugene Washington.

I am so pumped up about this book. It starts out saying, Dear Winner! Wow, doesn’t that just sound Awesome? You are a Winner! Just think about it, you started out life as a winner.

Winner

Starts out telling you how you are the first of 200,000 sperm. Think about it. You would not have been born if your mother did not have your father’s sperm to make you. And you are one of how many eggs that your mother had? I know, not a pretty thing to think about, but it is true. Don’t you agree? Now enough of the adult stuff.

Okay, you need another proof that you are a winner? Do you walk? Do you talk? Do you get around? How do you think you achieved these successes? Yes, although minor, they are all evidences that you are a success. Don’t sell yourself short. You are a Winner!

learning to walk cartoon

In the book, it tells how you are a winner. All the examples of these things show that you are a winner.

 

So, just because you don’t have the financial back-up that some people have, does not make you a loser. You are a winner. I just proved it.

Here are some questions for you. Think about them. Answer them Honestly. Do any of them apply to you? Keep reading. You will be amazed!

    • Okay, so what are your excuses for not making your million or billion in life?
    • Do you have a disability?
    • Did you get into a bad car wreck and now have lost some limbs?
    • Do you think you are too old or too young?
    • Are you poor?
    • Did you only have a mother or only a father?
    • Did you come from a background that others have not achieved things?
    • Do you live in the most wretched of places?
    • Were you abused most of your life?
    • Were or areyou discriminated against?
    • Were or are you living in a desert island?
    • Were you a part of a gang or in the wrong crowd growing up?
    • Did you make poor grades in school? Were you bullied growing up, or were you the bully?
    • Do you have a problem reading?
    • Do you have no friends?
    • Do you have little capital to start a business?
    • Have you failed at a lot of stuff you do?
    • Have you felt like you cannot do something because you always fail?
    • Did your teachers in school say that you will not amount to a hill of beans?
    • Did your parents, family, teachers, or anyone else constantly tell you that something cannot be done?
    • Do you… just fill in the blank with anything you do have or think you don’t have to make it.

Well, my friend, if any of the above applies to you, then you are in great company! What do I mean? There are a great many millionaires and billionaires out there that started out just like you. You have the Choice in this life to do what it takes or not to do what it takes. It is not an easy choice to make.

In reading the book Just Do It,  I have discovered a lot of things about life, riches, and getting rich. What is rich you ask?

I had a friend tell me that rich is the end result of your goal. It is what you set out to accomplish and achieve. A different meaning to rich, isn’t it? Yes, the dictionary says that to be wealthy is rich. But it also says to have great possessions or resources.

So, are you rich? I would answer “yes” to that. You are here with WA and that makes you one rich person. Why do I say this, you say? Look around you. What do you have? I can tell you. You have friends, family, support, training, guides, templates, and happiness, must I go on? Look at all the things here. Most places don’t have this type of network. Even Facebook cannot compare, in my opinion. It is like a wealth of knowledge sitting here for you to grab. For you to latch onto. If you are new or if you have been here for a while, you have it all! So, yes, you are rich!

In the book, it tells of different people who made it in life. Things that I have not even thought about. I want to start out with a quote.

“If you’re going to be thinking, you may as well think big.” – Donald Trump

Did you know that he said that? He did. So I want to impress upon you one thing – Think big! You are amazing! You are Awesome! You are one in a Million no, you are one in a Billion! Hey, think big, right?

Here is another quote – “In every person there is a sun. Just let them shine.” – Socrates

I am encouraging you to show your sunshine! Shine bright! You can do it! Don’t give up!

Back to the excuses. There are no excuses. You are what you think you are. If you think you can, you are right. If you think you can’t, you are right. It is all in how you think. You can let your surroundings or past or your lack of something stop you, or you can tell those things to get behind you and reach for the stars!

The first step you have to do is get rid of the old beliefs and old misconceptions about yourself. Don’t let the shackles that were put on you in childhood stop you. Don’t let anything stop you.

Here is a story shared from the book: There was a man who came across an elephant who was standing in the middle of the yard on a hot day. Just a few steps ahead of the elephant was a cool stream of water. The elephant was on a little chain that he could just snap at any time and go to the water. But this elephant didn’t. Why was this so? The man decided to ask the Elephant tied to a stakeowner of the elephant why he did not go to the water to cool off. The owner explained that when the elephant was young he was put on a chain that he could not get out of. The elephant tried and tried for a long time to get out of the chain. But each time he could not escape. Then one day he gave up on trying. It was useless to try to get out of the chain. So after he stopped trying and when he grew up, he did not try any longer to get free. So, when he is older, he thinks in his mind that he cannot get out of the rope or chain. Since he could not do it when he was young, he thinks he cannot do it now. The picture above has a link to a video on a similar story of this. It is interesting.

So what does this have to do with us? We have had similar things done to us. We have been brought up to think that we have to do things in one certain way. We cannot possibly look at a different way to do things. Result is that we don’t try. We give up. We use our excuses to not do things to make us successful.

I am here to tell you, that is not true! We need to, as adults, break the chain! Be the elephant that breaks the rope. We need to do this to be successful! We can! You can! You will! Don’t let any excuses stop you! It does not matter if you are old, young, rich, poor, disabled – mentally or physically, been brought up with nothing, live in the poor areas, been disadvantaged. It does not matter the excuse or problems you think you have. You can do it! Just don’t stop trying! Don’t stop believing! Don’t stop making attempts! Don’t betray your happiness!

How many times did it take you to learn how to walk? Don’t remember? You could ask your mother, however, she may not remember either. How many times did it take you to learn to talk? How many times did it take you to learn the things you know today? See, you are a Winner! Don’t give up just because someone else says that you cannot do something.

Okay, you need examples of success from impossible situations? Here are some examples.

You say you are too old – Did you know that Grandma Moses did not paint till she was 76 years old? She started out as a simple peasant on a small farm and lived with a poor family working most of her life for rich neighbors. She milked cows and did all sorts of hard labor even after she married. Her story is in the book if you want to know more. Or look it up on the internet.

Another example: The biggest loser! Do you know who the biggest loser is? Colonel Sanders. Yes, that is right, the person who came up with the Kentucky Fried Chicken (Also known as KFC) chain. He started out trying to become a lawyer, which did not end well after his first case, which he got into a fight with his defendant and the Bar took away his license. He then tried to open a gas station, this failed too. He worked at a lot of places, even started a restaurant but to his dismay, they all ended up being a part of his failures. But did he stop? No. Even at 65, he did not stop. Finally, he remembered a chicken recipe that he had. He went around to different restaurants trying to sell his chicken recipe. No one wanted it. He was told that he was an idiot. People laughed at him. They told him that they were not interested in it. They humiliated him and called him all sorts of names. After 1006 tries, he finally got his first contract and KFC was born.

Pithagoras was 60, Julius Ceaser was 51, there are a number of others throughout history.

Now you say, well, they had an education. But you don’t. Or you don’t have the disabilities that I have. Well, my friend, here are other examples of famous or not so famous people. Most of these are covered in detail in the book. There are many examples. Just look them up on the website. Look up these people’s histories.

Do you know Konosuke Matsusita? He was a high school dropout who started the Panasonic Company.

Thomas Edison dropped out of high school.

Auguste Rodin – worlds famous sculpture failed 4 times to pass the entrance exams to the Paris school of fine arts. Never attended art school.

Giorgio Armani – studied medicine before becoming a fashion designer with no formal education.

Paul Orfalea, famous for Kinko’s photography and copy store, was dyslexic from childhood and a mentally retarded child and was told that he would not amount to anything except maybe a carpet layer.

Soichiro Honda – founder of Honda Motorcycles and cars. Born in a small village in a poor family. 2 of his brothers and a sister died of starvation. He was the only one that survived but did not go to high school.

Do you know Stephen Hawking? Famous astrophysicist of our times. His body is paralyzed and has been immobile for many years. He writes novels and is the head of Mathematics at Oxford University. He can only move 1 finger on his right hand. He has written many books, including “A Brief History of Time”. He uses a speech synthesizer for talking. His story is one of amazement. If you thought you had an excuse not to do something, you must read his story. He has come through things that I could not imagine. You have no excuse after reading his story.

Valentin Dikul – another good story of victory. He is the circus performer who, while doing a circus trick, fell down from a big height and broke his back. He was told that he would never be able to walk again. After that incident, he lifts weights more than 3300 pounds. He lifted a car.

Michael Jordan – was cut from his school basketball team and was told that he did not have any talent.

And of course Oprah Winfrey. She is a successful television personality who was told that she was not fit for television.

Okay, enough of the examples. You can read the book to get more, or look online. Each book listed has a link to a book that tells more.

These are some examples. Pick someone and read their history. You will be amazed!

Now, what I would recommend is that you, yes you, sit down and write out all your failures, disabilities, things that are holding you back. Compare them to the ones here or look up someone online that has your exact reason for not going for it.

After you are done writing your list and finding other successful people, put it on the back burner, in your computer under a tab of “History” and go out and start being successful. One way you can start is by creating your own website at Wealthy Affiliate.

Let me know how you like this review and how you plan on succeeding, either at Wealthy Affiliate or any other business venture. I would like to have your opinion on my review as well. Thank you!

Oh, and after you have achieved success, please come back here and share your success story with your background. I will be interested in seeing it as well! And maybe your story can influence someone else.

Please leave any comments you have below. Thank you.

PUSH MONEY APP Review

Name: PUSH MONEY APP
Website: PUSHMONEYAPP.COM
Price: $ 250.00
Owners: Dennis Moreland and Mike Callahan
Overall Rank: SCAM!!!!!

PUSH MONEY APP, Product Overview


This is a real scam. They show a video on how to make money in minutes. However, they don’t give you any details on it. If you look at the videos they say things and they only tell you to give them money. Doing your homework on this shows that this site is a scam. Not real. word titles for scam fraud

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

  1. They say you can make lots of money in a short time. But are you getting the money or are they?
  2. Video is very well made
  3. It is supposed to be a binary app – meaning that it is supposed to be a stock application

The Bad:

  1. There is nothing that they were selling – no explanation on what it is
  2. The cost is a lot!work from home scam
  3. There is nothing but the beta testers, what is that? Beta testers are people who test the product. In this instance, the same people in the background are the same people who are in the videos.
  4. Fake testimonials
  5. Nothing on the site – there is no explanation for any of the ideas, products, or any hint as to what they are selling.
  6. Don’t explain anything – nothing is explained only that you can get money in

    stop falling for scams

    your pocket and look at all these other people doing it.

  7. Looking at the screenshots in the video, the times and dates are the same. How could this be? If this was legit wouldn’t the time on everyone’s screen be different?
  8. Wasn’t the house in a prior scam?
  9. Look at the car they are driving in the video, don’t they need a license plate? Wonder what country they are from.

Who is PUSH MONEY APP For?


It is for anyone who “Wants to make more money fast” in a binary system. Have you heard of a Binary system? Why does this site not explain what that is? A Binary system, from what I get is something dealing with stocks and the stock market. Humm, why then do they not explain this on the Push Money App? Because they want you to fall for their trap, that is why. Scam with words for each letter

PUSH MONEY APP Tools & Training


No tools, no training. Only videos.  There is nothing on this site that says that it is legit. I did find a site that tells about this scam and I think they do a better job at emoticon thumbs downexplaining it than I do. Here is a link to their site: http://www.binaryoptionsgovernor.com/push-money-app-scam-review/

My Final Opinion of PUSH MONEY APP


Too good to be true. And you know what they say about things that are too good to be true, it usually is. And for this one, it is. Nothing screams louder as a scam than this. So in my opinion, it is a scam.

Ebay Review

eBay

What is eBay? What does it do? Who is it for?

Have you asked yourself what really is eBay?

Have you wondered how to really get something onto or from eBay?

Here are some answers to these questions.

EBAYReview


Name: EBAY
Website: EBAY.COM
Price: Free for buyers and a fee for sellers
Owner(s): Pierre Omidyar in 1995
Location: San Jose, California
Overall Rank: 80 out of 100

EBAY, Product Overview


eBay is an American worldwide e-commerce corporation. It is a place where you can sell or buy goods from around the world. It is like a giant flea market auction. The difference between this and a flea market is that you don’t have to leave your home to go to it. You can sell things that are no longer used or wanted. You can buy things from other people. It is a place where goods are bought or sold to a general public.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:


  1. You can get rid of stuff you have laying around the house or dorm.
  2. You can make money on your stuff.
  3. There is an eBay guarantee on most items.
  4. You can send items back to the person or contact them if you did not want it or it was broken when you got it.
  5. You have a choice to sell by auction or fixed price.
  6. You can get a really good item for the least amount of money when buying items.
  7. There are a lot of people who go onto eBay to purchase all types of items. If you are selling, you can get a bunch of exposure to your stuff.

The Bad:


  1.  You may not get the price you thought your item was worth if you sell it. Or if you buy something, you may not get exactly what you wanted.
  2. Time, it takes some time to sell your stuff. If you do an auction to sell your stuff it usually takes between 7 and 10 days for your item to sell. If you buy something by auction, it may take just as long to buy an item.
  3. You have to determine ahead of time what you think the items are worth when selling.
  4. You have to have at least 1 picture of your item(s) that you are selling.
  5. You have to describe your item and put descriptive words in so people can find your item. You also only can put it under one heading.
  6. You will have to update your item if it does not sell. Your item may not sell the first time it is on eBay.
  7. You have to read the descriptions of what you are buying to make sure that it is what you want. You could end up with something that does not work if you don’t read everything about it before you bid or order something.

Who is EBAY For?


Ebay is for anyone looking to buy or sell items. Either new or old items are found on eBay. This is good for anyone over the age of 18. (I say this because most children are not old enough to purchase things on the internet.)

EBAYTools & Training


There is a help section for the selling. It can be confusing at times, however, it is helpful when you cannot figure it out.

EBAYSupport


Ebay does have a staff support. If you have an item that you are selling and someone says that they are buying it, and they don’t pay for the item it goes to the eBay arbitration. Then eBay will ask them to pay you. You get the option to give feedback to the buyer or seller as you see fit.
EBAY Price

Ebay is free to use for buyers. Sellers are charged fees for listing items. Sometimes there are sales that help defray the cost of selling online.

My Final Opinion of EBAY


Ebay is a good place to start selling your items. Make sure that if you are selling that you are aware of the amount that eBay charges for use of their services.

More information on what eBay is can be found online at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBay

KICKSTARTER, Product Overview


This is an American public benefit corporation based in New York, according to Wikipedia. This crowd funding campaign focuses on creativity. So if you have a creative project that you would like to do this site is a good one for you. The creative project designer choses a deadline and a minimum goal. If they don’t collect any money by the deadline then they don’t have to worry about the fee. They collect pledges for all kinds of projects including: music, arts, journalism, comics, video games, films and food related projects.

They offer a tangible reward for the pledge.

Kickstarter started on April 28, 2009.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

PRO #1 – Lots of project ideas are funded through Kickstarter
PRO #2 – If you get featured on the homepage you have a better chance of getting funded.
PRO #3 – You get something for your donation.
PRO #4 – If you have a creative idea it may work.
PRO #5 – If you don’t get funding, you don’t have to worry about the fees.

The Bad:

CON #1 – if you have a large goal, you are less likely to get the funding you need.
CON #2 – It is not for business ventures or for emergencies.
Con #3 – There are other fees on top of the original 5% fee.

Who is KICKSTARTER For?


Kickstarter is for the creative person who is looking to get their ideas funded.

KICKSTARTER Tools & Training

KICKSTARTER Support


The support is the people who send their pledges to the person who needs the funding.

KICKSTARTER Price


Price for Kickstarter starts out as 5% of the total amounts of funds plus 3 to 5% after that.

My Final Opinion of KICKSTARTER


Kickstarter can be good for those who want their crafts to be funded. It could be something that makes a lot of money or no money at all. It would be good to find out if people are interested in what you have to offer before you sell your item online.

GO FUND ME, Product Overview


Go Fund Me is a crowd funding site. On this site you describe what you want to raise money for. A picture or video is requested for this site. You need to describe your situation, your kid’s situation, or any other situation that you want to raise money for. In a description on the internet it says that it allows users to create their own website to describe what they are raising money for.  However, it is a very small website consisting of only 1 page. gofundme

It has a slogan of “get money get going”. This is from the Wikipedia website.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

PRO #1 – You get to describe in detail what you need to raise money for.
PRO #2 – You can post it onto Facebook, Twitter, Tsu, or any other social site.
PRO #3 – People can donate as little or as much as you want to donate to the cause.
PRO #4 – It is not incentive-based. gofundme

The Bad:

CON #1 – You need a good source of people who are willing to donate money to your cause.
CON #2 – It takes time to get money for your cause. GoFundMe
CON #3 – It takes time to get good at raising money from GoFundMe
CON #4 – Can become annoying.
CON #5 – If most people you know are just as poor as you or don’t have money to spare you could be waiting a long time if ever to get the money you need.

Who is GO FUND ME For?


Go Fund Me is for anyone asking for donations for either themselves or another person.

Go Fund Me is good for those who have an immediate need to get money such as emergencies, health care issues, projects, or any other social need. Medical bills, a child’s cancer, or education for a student in college or private school are also some good causes that are supported on Go Fund Me. These are just some of the reasons that people use the Go Fund Me crowdfunding campaign. This is not a good site for the business person. crowdfunding

GO FUND ME Tools & Training


The only training on this site is the statements telling you how to make a Go fund me campaign. There is a video under the help section that shows you how to start a campaign. Not really much training. Then again not much help is really needed. The tools are just the outline for your campaign.

GO FUND ME Support


The community consists of people going to the site to give or get money from other people. Not unlike begging online.

GO FUND ME Price


The cost is 5% of all donations given to the cause.

My Final Opinion of GO FUND ME


My opinion is that Go Fund Me could be a good way to get money for college, however, there are many other more reliable sources for college money. Yes, some people have gotten funded with Go Fund Me, but many do not. There are a lot better ways of making money. Unless you had a really compelling story or a good reason for having a GoFundMe account, I would go to a place like Wealthy Affiliate and build a website or some other of the places found on this site.

VERDICT: LEGIT/NOT LEGIT


This is a legitimate site. However, it is not very profitable. It is a short term type of thing. Not to be used often. If you use it too much it a person could be thinking that you are crying wolf. This is just a site that should be used very rarely.

Price: 5% fee on contributions
Available in: English, German, French, Spanish
Owners: Danae Ringelmann, Slava Rubin, and Eric Schell

INDIEGOGO, Product Overview


This is an international crowdfunding website which was started in 2008 under a different name. It is a site for those who want to solicit for an idea, charity or startup business. This is a site for people who want to get their ideas going. It runs on a reward system. The people donating to this site can receive a gift instead of equity, which some say that could change. The site is looking into having an equity funding in the future. There is a site for emergencies as well. Called Indiegogo Life which was changed to Generosity.com in 2015. In 2012 President Barack Obama partnered with Indiegogo to offer crowdfunding to entrepreneurs in the United States. This site has a lot of people who go to it every year.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

1. This site helps businesses get up and going.
It helps people to bring their dreams to life.
This site is good for getting money to start your home based business.
2. It does not promote illegal activity, gambling, or any of the other things that violates people’s rights.
3. It is a popular site, so your campaign may get funded.

The Bad:

1. Like any other crowdfunding, you need to have people who are willing to donate to your cause.
A lot of people are asking for money for a lot of businesses. You could be overlooked.
2. No company give-a-ways in the form of perks, money, or other interests in the company as an incentive to have someone give your business money.
3. Why go and ask friends and family for money on a website when you could just go to them and ask them for money.
4. On a website like this they take 5% of what is given. If you know someone is going to be able to give you start up capitol, you could just ask them for it.
5. There are a lot of crowd funding sites out there. People may go to the site you are at or they may not. There is no guarantee of getting money from a crowd funding site.

Who is INDIEGOGO For?


Indiegogo is a crowdfunding site geared towards the business person. If you are going to start your business and need funding, this may be a good site to go to. You cannot advertise or give things out to people who are giving you money. This is strictly a request for money to start your business.

INDIEGOGO Tools & Training

INDIEGOGO Support


The owners of this site seem to be genuinely interested in helping you to get money. But that is as far as it goes.

My Final Opinion of INDIEGOGO


My opinion on Indiegogo, it is another crowdfunding site.

I believe this site is legit. However, it is like begging for money to start your business. When there are sites out there that will help you start your business, give you training, and do this for nothing, why would you really need to use a crowdfunding site? This is my opinion.

What is your opinion? Have you used this site? Were you successful?

Smash Fund Review

Smash Fund


Name: SMASH FUND
Website: https://smashfund.com/
Price: $149.00 per month starting in July of 2016. Free before that time.

They have updated the price, however, I have forgotten the price of it.
Owners: Rob Towles
Overall Rank: Cannot give a ranking at this time. It is not fully up and running.
Ever heard of Candy Crush? Well, the maker of Candy crush is the person who started SmashFund.

SMASH FUND, Product Overview


Something that starts in July. It is a site called Smash Fund. How does it work?
Well, it is supposed to be a crowdfunding and social network all balled up in one thing.
When you first get onto the site you are told about it. Give a credit card number (If you are afraid of it being a scam you can always put some random numbers in, it will take it.)
A bad part about this is in July it will cost $149.00 for the site. Rather pricey if I say so myself.
However, the claim is that you can make money on the site. Right now it is free. It is something to think about. It is not a get rich scheme, that is for sure. Not sure if it will make you money or if it won’t. This is a new platform that can go either way. It is a crowdfunding/social network site. I am not sure if Smash Fund is legit or if it is a scam. There is not enough information on it to tell either way.
They have updated their information on the site, so the first thing as you go to the site it does not give you a page where you have to sign up. Now they have a beginning page that gives you a little more information and even a video from the owner, Rob Towles.

The Good & the Bad


The Good:

  • Crowdfunding as a social network. This is good if you want to get money, however, is it really that good of an idea? Or is it just a scam? This is yet to be determined.
  • If this is not a scam, it can go far.
  • It asks for a credit card. Well, right now you can get into the site by just putting some random numbers in for the credit card number. (For purposes of a scam, I would do this. I wonder how many 123456789 numbers they will get right away. This would be interesting to see. )
  • More information is on the site as of June 5th.
  • There is a video and a voice recording on the front page instead of nothing.
  • Gives a bit more information than there used to be
  • Reputable person who invented this site. Rob Towles is also the inventor of Candy Crush. People who play Candy Crush may also like this site. Maybe it will be a Candy Crush website? That is my opinion.

The Bad:

  • The price of this site is expensive. You need to have a crowd connect with you.
  • Not completely up yet.
  • No information as to what it will do for you.
  • You need to get 5 or more people to sign up with you.
  • If you don’t know anyone , or you don’t think people will want to follow you, or you don’t know a lot of people, you could just be wasting your money and time with this site.
  • It is a gamble. At this time, it is a gamble as to how this will work. They are stating that it will be a big hit.
  • Do we believe everything everyone says? Then again, he is the owner of Candy Crush. And see how that took off?
  • No training or tools at this time.

Who is SMASH FUND For?


Right now there is not much on who this website is for. To me, it seems like this site is for everyone who wants money. It looks like a place for people who have a lot of money to throw away at first glance. It has a heading on the about page that it is for the “dreamer who dares to dream, the entrepreneur who eats smashfundobstacles for lunch, and a place where passions, people and life collide.”
I am not sure about eating obstacles for lunch, I would rather food, thank you. Anyway, this site is not fully up and running. So, maybe in the near, we will see what it really is.

Update: Smashfund is up and running. As of July 30, 2016 this site is up.

SMASH FUND Tools & Training


  • Tools: None, at least not right now.
  • Training: None, at least not in the present state.
  • No training at this point in time. Don’t think there is going to be training on how to work the site. But I could be wrong.

SMASH FUND Support


The support offered with the product. Is there a community, forum, personal support, do the owners support it? So far none of this is on the site. There is a little bit of information on the site, however, it still does not give you the full details. Since it is still new, they may not have everything ready yet.

SMASH FUND Price


  • Pricing: Free till July. Then it will be $149.00 per month.
    They lowered the price.

My Final Opinion of SMASH FUND


If you do decide to try this site out, I suggest putting in some random numbers for the credit card information. That way if it is a scam, you will not be charged on your credit card and you don’t have to worry about having to close down your credit card or stopping it with the bank.

My opinion is that it looks too good to be true. And you know what that means? Like the old saying goes, if it is too good to be true, it usually is.

Update: Smashfund is up and running. It is not easy to navigate around, but it is new. So I would think that is to be expected.

SMASH FUND at a Glance…


Name: Smash Fund
Website: https://smashfund.com
Owners: Rob Towles
Price: $ 149.00 after July 2016
Overall Scam Rank: Cannot give a ranking at this time. It is not fully up and running.

I did find some YouTube Videos on it though. See below.

Smashfund is a crowdfunding site. You put your campaign in and post it. I have put a campaign up on the site. But I have not gotten anything yet. I will keep you informed on my progress on this. Hopefully it is not a waste of time. Keep checking back. Let me know if you have any questions.

SMASH FUND Videos



This video this one tells you about SmashFund and crowdfunding. Something I had not heard of till I saw it for the first time a few days ago.

Okay, here is someone who is making money, Doug Graham… $64,000.00 per month? Wow, I could use that! Wonder if they started making that on SmashFund already?


VERDICT: LEGIT/NOT LEGIT


Not sure if it is legit. If it is, it is expensive. Could turn into a great place for social networking. It could grow and be similar to Facebook, only it costs you money.
Not legit – If it is not legit, well scams are everywhere. Waste of money if it is a scam.

Personally, I would go with Wealthy Affiliate and leave the crowdfunding options to other people. Without many “friends” who want to donate money to a campaign, you won’t get any place. Besides, why pay someone money if you can just ask the person yourself and not spend the extra fees to give the person money.

Your Opinion?


I would like your opinion on Smash Fund. What do you think? Scam or not? Right now I am not sure what to think. It looks okay, but then again, I am not sure. I will keep you up to date on my findings of this.

got questions we have the answers Wealthy Affiliate – Building a part time business keeping your present job and Leveraging your efforts. A unique way to make money.

My Review for Wealthy Affiliate


Overall Ranking: Good
Price: Free to start up then $47.00 if you want to go premium
Owners: Kyle & Carson
Website: Wealthy Affiliate.com

INTRODUCTION


Wealthy Affiliate is a website builder. It lets you go through classes to build your own website in less than 30 minutes. It is easy to use and not hard to follow. If you get stuck, you can ask others for help.

PROS/CONS


Pros –

  • This is a great site to build friendships while learning.
  • It helps you to go through the steps to build your own website, promote that website, and get it up and running.
  • The start up cost is free. This is great for college students and others that are looking for some help in making a website and don’t have much money to spend on that website.
  • Make money while learning to build a website.
  • Encouragement – Great site to have others encourage you through your walk with getting your business up and running.
  • Free Trip to Vegas! (Okay, so I like this idea. Who else can say that they went to a website and got a trip to Vegas for just learning?)

Cons –

  • Most of the information is also located on YouTube. However, when using YouTube you don’t get the support that you have here. Yes, you can learn about how to build a website using YouTube, but you don’t get the people who can help you, steps that you did not think about nor can you ask YouTube questions.
  • You do have to buy your own domain.
  • Eventually you want to go premium, which does cost money.
  • You can get confused sometimes from some of the classes, but you do have the option of asking for help. So this is a pro and a con.
  • There is a lot of competetion.

WHO IT IS FOR


Beginners –

As a beginner you will be able to learn how to build a site, put it up on social media, get it running and gives you all the steps to start a business. It will also help you to have someone look at your information and critique it as you go, instead of flopping around like a fish out of water not  I feel like a fish out of waterknowing what you are doing. It also gives some good ideas. It encourages you to ask questions, things that teachers in the younger years of schooling discouraged. Yes, they would always say that you can ask questions, but then you are ridiculed if you did ask questions. At least that is what happened to me.

Intermediate –

If you are an intermediate, you probably already have the basic stuff for your website but want extra help or a way to learn more about what you already know. This site is great for contacts. It will also help you to further your education and help you with those little things that you may have missed in school.

Professional –

As a professional web builder you probably are looking for new ways to do things, more people to generate to your sites, and a way to make more contacts. This site does just that. It is a great way to build relationships with others. It will help you to give your ideas on things, unless you are the kind of person who does not like to share things with others, whichfish out of water new guys if you are here you are not that type of person. Yes, you can find most of this stuff on YouTube, in classes, or anywhere else on the web, but are you really getting the contacts that you want? Ask yourself the question, am I getting all the leads, traffic, and friends to my site that I want to get? If your answer is no, then I would recommend at least trying this site out.

Have you thought along these lines? “Anyone can build websites, it is a dime a dozen on that, what you pay for is the imaging and content for the sites. This is where the money is at in the web field, not in the building a website. Plus you can google it and watch videos, and learn how to do it for free, why pay someone when you are looking to make money?” Well, my answer to this is that as you know it is easy to make a website, but this is more than just building a website. It is building relationships. It is building a clientele. It is helping others. It is not just a website builder.

TRAINING/TOOLS OVERVIEW


Training –


The training with Wealthy Affiliate includes a boot camp that starts you out as an affiliate for the site. It will help you gain the knowledge to build and grow your business. If you are a pro at making websites, well, I believe you can learn something every day. For the beginner, this is a great tool. There are many paths for the learning.

You can use the Rubix site to build your own website, this is for everyone, pros, intermediates, and beginners. If you already have your own domain, you can bring that over.

There is a step by step guide to building your website and your business. Things that help you to learn how to build the website, but also helps you to get the traffic to your business and website.

SUPPORT


There is a lot of support when you use Wealthy Affiliate. I have not used this very long, but I know already that people on this site care. So if you don’t care for others, this site is not for you! help wanted

There are people who have done this for a long time, and there are some people who are beginners. Everyone has at least some knowledge to add to this great mixture. What one person learns from here, or elsewhere, they don’t mind sharing.

The best part, in my opinion, is that you gain friendships. Ynew friends and old friendsou get to share your knowledge about the things you know about and what works best for you. You also have a helping hand there to guide you and support you through the process.

You don’t have to do it alone. My struggles have always been that I do things and it is always me. No one to guide or help you through things. No one to let you know when you are heading in the wrong way. No one to tell you “You are doing a great job.” No one to encourage you through the steps. Now that I found this, I have the people to guidgot questions we have the answerse me, people to let me know when my site has a blurp in it. I have the support and the guiding that I need to succeed. Some people can do without this. However, I am not that type of person. I want someone to look at my site and see if it is okay. Tell me what I am doing wrong. Encourage me when I am not succeeding, and I like the fact that there are many people here that will say that I am doing a great job. And if you join, I will make sure that I will say that to you, too!

PRICE


      I know you are asking yourself, so what is the price for this? What price would you put on all this? Are you willing to pay lots of money for it? What does the freenormal college student pay for knowledge in the classroom? Usually the classroom in college ranges anywhere from $6,000.00 per 15 credit hours up to $25,000.00 for up to 15 credit hours. Well, with Wealthy Affiliate, you can start out free. If you chose to go premium, which would be good after you start making money, you would be spending about $47.00 per year or if you choose the yearly option would cost only $359.00. This is still less than the price you are paying per credit hour at college. And you can make money while you are learning. Can you do that at college?

     Here is the price list for this website:

FINAL OPINION/VERDICT


My opinion is that this is a great site. It is not just a website builder as some may claim. This site helps you through the steps to build a successful business. It helps you to learn how to do the stuff to make it successful. If you don’t want success, if you don’t want to earn money, if you don’t want to talk to others and have your site critiqued, then I would not recommend this. If you do want all of this and more, then come on board! I would love to meet you.


This is a caring site. It aims to help people get over the struggles that they encounter. So if you don’t care for others, this site is not for you!

Earning Money On-Line With Wealthy Affiliate

Earning money by being an affiliate


Earning money online is not as easy as some people think. It takes time to distinguish between a scam, a quick start, and something that just wants to take your money.

You can earn while you learn at Wealthy Affiliate.

Here is a link if you are interested in learning about how to make your own website. The best part of this website is that you can start out with no money down. And, if you are like me, you don’t have extra money to spare. So the best way to start is to try something out first.

Here is the link to get started:


Now with this website, which you can build in 30 seconds, you first log in by putting your name, email address, choose a password, and username. When you are done with that, you will be directed to choose between a free and a premium site builder. (You want to start with the free one. This will get you started. Plus you will be able to make money before purchasing the premium site.) See below for the next step.

Education


Okay, you want to start your website but you don’t know what a niche is or you don’t know where to find out. Oh, that word again, education, don’t worry, that is another word for learning. You are a college student, so you will have to learn that learning is a part of life. Anyway, here is a good place to educate yourself on niches. Or should I say a long-tailed niche? Click on the teddy bear to learn more of the long-tailed niche. teddy bear sittingWhy I recommend


As with most all students in college, I know you are going to need help starting up your website. That is why I recommend this site. Try it out. See if it works for you.

You will not know if it works till you try it. Then let me know what you think. And when you make your million using this, please remember me.
