How to Work at Home and Make Money
Many people would like to do this, thousands already do. It’s not as difficult as you think. The important thing is to learn how because once you know you will know forever and you will join the ranks of those who enjoy living the internet lifestyle.
However before I tell you how to work at home and make money and more importantly. Where you can get the education you need, in order to make sustainable, long-term income online we need to clear your mind of much misinformation about wealth creation.
We will begin with a short history lesson of economic wealth.
Adam Smith was an 18th-century economist who wrote “The Wealth of Nations” in 1776. The book was to have a profound impact on the economic growth and industrial development of the world.
In this now classic works he first introduced “The invisible hand” concept of the free market and eloquently explained that it works best when it is run from the bottom up, not from the top down, as we see promoted by Governments today.
Before that, countries, economies, and communities were controlled by the very visible hand or rather the iron fist of kings, queens, emperors, nobles, and warlords. These tyrants, with their limited perspective, sat in palaces and castles and hijacked the economy for their own benefit. The average peasant worked unbelievably hard for a tiny portion of the production of their own labors.
That’s why the masses eventually revolted against the ruling elite as in the U.S. in the 1770’s and then Europe, beginning with France in the 1790’s. With that freedom from tyranny came ‘democracy’ and free market capitalism which in turn ushered in the greatest period of economic progress in world history.
Today, Business people, politicians, and everyday people (in western cultures) still tend to praise the virtues of free market capitalism due to the wealth and freedom it created for everyday people.
But yet the very same people also contradict themselves because in truth most people throughout history have actually fought against free market capitalism.
“What has this got to do with learning how to work at home and make money? – Keep reading the answer is coming…
Why? Because free market capitalism, imposes strict discipline upon everyone involved including, governments, businesses, and workers, in that it is as unforgiving, as it is rewarding. If workers don’t produce, they get fired. If methods aren’t efficient, they get eliminated. If businesses aren’t competitive, they lose market share.
The free market dynamics are such that, if you lose touch with your customers you will go out of business. If a new business doesn’t get it right, it fails. If countries or states and provinces aren’t competitive, they lose their wealth. If politicians or governments don’t deliver results, they get voted out.
Yes, it’s very stressful particularly if you are not productive, or don’t deliver. There is no room in a true democratic / capitalistic system for ‘freeloaders’, – especially at the top.
What’s more, there are no guarantees. Just because a business was great in a previous business cycle doesn’t mean it will still be great, during the next.
Kodak, General Motors, Polaroid, Bethlehem Steel are a few of many former business giants, (once greatly favored stock holdings of many Americans) that have all crashed to zero.
Proving that if you stop delivering benefits to your stakeholders and customers – you will eventually pay the price.
Few could argue against the fact that free market capitalism, has been responsible for the unprecedented freedoms and improvements in the quality of life of everyday people.
Or that its conception hasn’t benefitted almost everyone on the planet in some way or another, with the creation of such things as Electricity, Medicine, and Machinery.
Nor could anyone fail to acknowledge the unparalleled creation of wealth for the masses on a scale, unmatched, in any other time in the history of the world.
Too Little Credit
Yet even though the above is all true, very little credit is afforded to, or time allocated to the merits of this free market capitalism insight, in most high school and university education programs today.
Instead, it’s often dismissed as an unfortunate growth phase of unbridled and unregulated capitalism and no longer considered relevant in today’s more ‘enlighten‘ and government regulated and ‘fairer’ society.
While some people still talk big about celebrating the free market system and its conjoined twin ‘Democracy’ and the benefits they together have brought to humanity. No one actually wants to play by the free market’s rules.
Instead, everyone wants some sort of unfair competitive advantage so that they aren’t the ones that get their asses kicked for unproductive behavior from this dynamic, wealth-creating, constantly growing, but challenging system.
For all but a few, it was difficult to accept this (at the time) historically new and radical concept, of full self-responsibility and this new ‘free market capitalism‘ idea, was an uncomfortable fit for many as they were fearful of what direct competition might bring. Secretly they desired that someone else should shoulder that responsibility.
Politicians stepped in and sold us the illusion that we could have-our-cake-and-eat-it too and that they (and they alone) could control ‘the invisible hand’ of free market capitalism. A system that had already proven to be highly beneficial to society and had created incredible wealth in a stunningly short period of time.
Yet despite this undeniable fact, they sold people on the idea that it could be managed and controlled (by them – of course) without any negative consequences.
By turning the system ‘upside down’ everyone could get what they wanted and we foolishly fell for it because no one likes to struggle and our fear of competition, our complacency and laziness was the path of least resistance.
This Opened up the World of Wants
Workers wanted more pay for less work. More benefits. Job security or an assurance they won’t get fired, or at least not easily. They formed unions to protect themselves, and in doing so often killed the very industries they gave them a paycheck in the first place.
Businesses wanted rules that would give them an advantage so that new innovative competitors couldn’t take away any temporary advantage they had in their industry. They also want business protection or at least protection from foreign competition.
- They wanted to lower the country’s currency exchange rate to give their exports an unfair advantage.
- They wanted tariffs imposed on imports to protect their domestic markets.
- They wanted lower interest rates so they could access cheap capital
- They wanted government-protected monopolies for their businesses.
Politicians wanted the power and prestige of being seen as benefactors to society. They needed money to buy voters and get re-elected so they set up a system to ensure that businessmen and other special interest groups needed to lobby them in order to protect their businesses and special interests so as to encourage them to exchange cash for political favors.
At the same time, Governments wanted to encourage monetary growth and increased lending to expand the economy to get greater tax revenues.
But then they irresponsibly printed money to stave off the recessions and the deleveraging of previous government created bubbles in the economy, which of course lead to even bigger bubbles, in every increasing size and frequency.
As sad and as unfortunate as this situation is, it’s not going to change anytime soon, no matter who is President, because all the parties involved want to avoid the harsh and very painful realities that the now invisible, dishonest sleight of hand, and decades of economic mismanagement has created.
Ray Stevens gives a good summary of the situation with this song; Obama Nation
So everyone is playing the manipulation game, (although Governments are playing a heavier and more visible hand).
They manipulate the voters, they manipulate businesses, they manipulate the economy and they manipulate the truth.
The concept of “The invisible hand” of the free market, working with “limited” democracy operating from the top down, is a delusion and a dishonest fraud perpetrated by the freeloaders that infest the entire system.
The ‘free market’ system is rigged. BUT not rigged in your favor. It is rigged by greedy invisible hands, that pull strings to guarantee profits, for the freeloaders who sit at the top of the U.S. empire.
Sure the Kings & Queens and tyrants of old are gone, but the structure still remains. Just the names and titles have changed.
This is why free market capitalism and democracy are in so much trouble today.
One cannot fully function without the other. If you restrict one, it impacts the other and vice versa. Wealth comes from freedom. Restrict personal freedoms, remove self – responsibility and you limit creativity and hence wealth creation.
This is what you are seeing on a global scale today. But the freeloaders won’t want you to see this ‘connection’ they prefer to use smoke and mirrors to hide and distort the truth because ‘they’ are the ones who have the most to lose.
It is not a more regulations, more rules and limited democracy we need but rather substantially less Government and free market capitalism that works from the bottom up – without any Governmental intervention or trickery.
Under a truly democratic and open free market system, everyone is equal, no one gets any special favors. The discipline inherent in the market system is very rewarding if you are productive. But at the same time, it’s also unforgiving if you are not.
That market discipline applies equally to ALL without exception. The gains would out-way the loses a million to one. There is no room at the top for any unproductive ‘freeloaders‘ as inefficiencies get eliminated.
Eventually,… the free market will win, but only after such a system is very heavily fought and paid for (as it once was – but it has since been hijacked by the free loaders, the politicians other destroyers of wealth and freedom)
Which brings us to the reason for this post, the reason why, you need an online business and the reason why you find so many scams and rip-offs online, because there are also ‘freeloaders‘ there too, posing as gurus, offering to use their invisible hands to make your life easier and stress-free.
Understand that there are no free rides, no magic formulas, no secret tricks. There are only free market dynamics and open competition that creates long term, honest wealth.
The internet works that way, in that it functions like the free market, it’s one of the few bastions remaining that does not have complete Government control. So making honest money is still possible and readily available to all, if you know what to do.
If you are prepared to take full self-responsibility for your success, if you are prepared to learn lessons, to make mistakes, to get things wrong to struggle and try again and stick with it no matter what.
If you also accept that no one can do it for you. Then you CAN learn everything you need to know to be a success online and learn how to work at home and make money.
Once you understand what has gone wrong with the free market system and realize that the qualities required for success online are the same for any business, then you are ready to begin.
Success is not just a matter of mindset or not just a matter of choosing a path and sticking to it.
