Life Won't Be Given To You - This Is Trouble

Life Won’t Be Given To You

These days, I’m getting a lot of questions about how to make money on the internet.

I actually went on a bit of a Twitter rant the other day because of it…


Some guy emailed me a few months ago. General question about Ukraine, teaching English, etc. Actually much older than “my generation”—think late 30s. I responded and gave him some travel tips and told him that teaching English wouldn’t pay him much.

Then a few days ago he sends another email. Asking if I’d discuss his financial plans when I “had a chance”. No question of how much I bill for consulting. No offer to pay. No offer to buy a product and maybe have that thrown in as a bonus.

The point is, why would I give up my time (it sounded like he was expecting a free phone/Skype call).

I sent him an email back telling him my hourly rate and never got a response.

It’s a really bad way to tackle life, expecting things to be given to you. Especially time—because we have a very finite amount of it. And it doesn’t come back.

So, let me answer some of these questions…

  1. HOW do I make money online?
  2. How LONG will it take?
  3. Will you GUARANTEE my success?

These questions are tough to answer, because…

  1. I don’t know – how hard are you going to work?
  2. I don’t know – how hard are you going to work?
  3. No, because I don’t know how hard you will work!

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees in life. The only thing that is “assured” in regards to money is the stable, corporate career. And there is no shame in it; albeit I’d argue that they’re not all that stable these days.

In any case, I recently wrote an article out about some business concepts that had been brewing inside my head. It’s about how to make money online, location-independently, but while doing it in a more traditional (and stable, quicker) sense.
