- e-book sales – this is through KDP (Amazon), Createspace and Smashwords
- information product sales – such as my very successful “Kindle Laser Beam Course” and the follow up “Advanced Kindle Laser Beam Course” I sell these through the Warrior Forum and JVZoo.com
- My VIP Membership club, which takes over from the Kindle Laser Beam courses and presents a lesson each week for a year.
- Amazon affiliate income – these are websites that I own which sell products on Amazon through which I get a commission.
- Writing – I don’t do this often and I’m expensive.
- Selling products using Amazon’s FBA program. The online bit is that Amazon attracts the buyers and then sends them the products when they sell. They send me money every two weeks.
- whiners who believe that someone else is responsible for their mundane, boring life-sucking job
- whingers who think the world owes them a living
- fools who think that the only thing they need to do is buy the next promise of untold riches for 40 bucks to become rich beyond their wildest dreams
- losers who think that making money on the internet is an easy ride which requires no work
- people who actually believe there are “secrets” to making money online (there aren’t)
When you are ready to take action take a leap over to my VIP Members Area, details here:
The losers of the world are at it again.
Somebody gets off their arse, makes things happen and strikes it rich. Inevitably using new technology based around the internet and mobile phone market.
Young Nick D’Aloisio launched a mobile app when he was just fifteen. He’s only seventeen now. The app simply summarises news bulletins. Simple,easy and pretty cool. He’s now sold it for somewhere between 20 and 30 million pounds.
Then the whinging and whining started.
“He’s too young to deal with that”
“why does he need that much money?”
Well I have a different view. He rolled up his sleeves, did the work, attracted investors and sold out for millions. Excellent. What he does with his own money has nothing to with anyone else. Keep your nose out and congratulate an action taker.
We need more of them.
I’ll bet that he won’t sit back and count his money. Action takers never do.
The only way of making money is to take action and DO SOMETHING.
When you want some guidance check out:
Even worse than that, I watched Sunday’s Malaysian Grand Prix.
Normally I find that I’d rather watch paint dry….far more exciting.
This time it was different….. Mark Webber led from lap six, and Sebastian Vettel kept asking the Red Bull management to make Webber move over for him. Quite right. If you’re not good enough to win then move over and get the hell out of there.
Now I find that there are demands for Vettel to be banned for a period for daring to win!
Give me a break will ya.
The winners win and the losers cry. Period.
- “the world’s not fair”, or
- “I’ve been made redundant”, or
- “it’s the government’s fault”.
Tough line? You betcha.
Just thought I’d drop by and say thank you to all those who checked out my free Kindle Sales Page Creator……I’d love it if you showed me your creations…..just leave a comment and link on the KSP page at:
On another note, have you see the amazing scenes in Cyprus? I’m not surprised there were riots last week……the government screw it up and then steal money from peoples bank accounts. Frickin unbelievable and all the more reason to get yourself another income that is independent of a reliance on savings or even a job.
Don’t think it couldn’t happen in your country…….it can and it will be tried again in Europe at least and maybe even in the “good ole USA”.
Sure they might say it could never happen but all they need to do is call it a tax and that’s it. You won’t even be able to get your money out cos they’ll freeze your account.
If you want to create your own income on a regular basis then it don’t come any better than selling books on the Kindle and other ebook platforms.
Now I’m not addressing those people who just think about it without taking action……..someone emailed me the other day and said that they couldn’t afford my VIP Members Area. I agreed with them.
If you can’t afford $27 a month for someone to show you exactly how to create an independent income stream then your priorities rightly lie elsewhere.

One of the requirements to get your kindle books noticed is to make sure the listing on Amazon is as good as you can make it. You need to make it really stand out. My advice is to add colour, bold, underline and images. For a recent children’s book I added some screenshots to highlight the illustrations in the book. You can see the result here:
Notice both the images and the Amazon orange for the titles?
There is a little known technique for adding images and fonts like this.
Amazon actually allows something called “encoded” HTML in a sales page. This might sound difficult but I have a free tool to make it happen.
All you need to do is log into the tool and then add the text for your sales page together with links to your images. The site will then automatically encode the sales page. You simply copy and paste this code into your Amazon sales page! It’s as easy as that.

I got to thinking that jobs suck a long time ago. In my world a “job” is simply an exchange of time for money and this is where the whole idea starts to fall apart for me. If I have to keep exchanging my time for money then its always going to be a hamster wheel…….keep running if you want to get paid. I have a real problem with this and its really time to move to more modern thinking.
The problem I have is that “jobs” are a complete waste of human potential. Take a look at people on your way to work – how many look happy and fulfilled? Not many I bet? The Lottery is popular for a reason.
Life should be much more about spending time with other humans and enjoying the learning and social interaction that results.
I love to read and two books I came across recently took these thoughts to another level. The two books were:
George takes the idea of a “job” and tears it apart. As he says
“Karl Marx got it wrong.
Religion isn’t the opium of the masses. Work is“
Now that really got me thinking about the amount of time we spend away from those we love – spouses, children, parents – and all in the name of a job and work. The idea is totally flawed.
Michael’s book discusses that to be really free you should work ON a business and not IN a business. The example he gives is McDonalds and he takes a detailed look at why they are so successful. He proposes that a successful business is one that continues even when you are not there.
So if jobs suck – what’s the alternative?
Now this really got me thinking – everyone needs money to live and few enjoy having a job and exchanging masses of their time for that money. So what is needed is a way of spending some time and earning money from that one use of time over and over again. The same chunk of time should continually earn you money. How best to do this?
It seemed to me that the recent innovation of the internet probably offered a solution. Here was a medium that is used by billions of people and the real advantage is that most if not all business processes could be automated. Businesses are pretty simple when you break them down. Find a need, then satisfy it at the minimum cost while still giving the customer what they need. The internet can be used to do this – you can reach millions of people without leaving your home. You can satisfy their needs. You can do this at almost zero cost.
All this led me to write three books – books which present ways of exchanging the same fixed chunk of time working and earning money time after time. Each book represent a milestone in my thought processes…….
The first book was How to Build an Article Writing Business and Earn $100 an Hour!
I love to write and most writers earn peanuts from their craft. The book develops a series of lessons which demonstrate that its absolutely possible to earn $100 an hour from writing…….
The second was The Google News Bible – Get Massive Traffic Without Work! and concentrated on the idea of creating websites which would appear on page one of Google for hundreds of search terms without the need to build backlinks or other SEO techniques. Such websites would also attract thousands of visitors without the owner actually doing any work at all.
The third book was Lazy Passive Earnings, and it provides a detailed account of buying established websites which are already making an income. It provides a detailed step by step method that you can follow to create yourself a passive income.
