There is no doubt that Barack Obama has his work cut out for him, with the staggering economy of the United States. The rest of the world is not doing much better. Foreclosures are at an all time high, the unemployment rate in the U.S is down right depressing. Times are rough for most people and businesses around the world, yet internet marketing is thriving. Affiliate marketing, pay per click, eBay, Google adsense, are all vehicles that people are using to make money on the internet.
I’ve heard stories of the days when people would graduate from high school, and if they didn’t go to college, they would get a good paying job. They would stay at their job for the next 30 or 40 years until retirement. Secure that, they at least had a good dependable income. They may never get rich, but they had a home, food and went on vacation once a year. They might even be able to help their children with their education expenses. Let’s not forget the guarantied pension that people would receive at retirement.
This kind of story will one day in history be considered an “Old Wives Tale”, if it’s not already.
We have to take control of our own lives. What ever position, financial or otherwise, that we find ourselves in, is because of the decisions we have made. Yes, we can blame the government. But we allowed ourselves to be put in the position to get screwed. We have let our lives depend on someone else and for the most part, that would be the government.
We need to change our way of thinking. I’m not going to get deep into this, but The Wealth Creator Source can help make those changes. The Wealth Creator Source is a series of powerful interviews by Raymond Aaron with some of the most influential people of our time. People like Brian Tracy, Jack Canfield and Robert Kiyosaki to name but a few.
We need to create multiple streams of income. No longer can we rely on the “Old Wives Tales”.
The population in the United States in 2008 was 303,228,257 and the number of internet users was 222,723,436. In Canada the population was 33,999,500, the number of internet users was 23,999,500. All of Europe in total was 803,903,540 with 393,373,398 internet users. I haven’t even given the stats for the United Kingdom, Germany and the rest of the world, which are staggering.
Businesses of all sizes are turning to the internet. They search the web understanding it’s a better way of purchasing goods and services. The internet allows companies to save time and cost savings by shopping around for the best deals. People in general are purchasing more products through the internet.
Internet marketing is recession proof. If you want to start a business part time, then this is the way to go. I’m not going to tell you you’re going to make a fortune in a couple of months, although it is possible. You can get started in you’re spare time with a free blog from blogger.com and affiliate products. It won’t cost you a dime, just time. There are plenty of internet marketers who give away free internet marketing information to help get you started. There are also free affiliate programs you can join like Armand Morin’s affiliate program with support and products second to none. You can also purchase programs to teach and guide you on your path to success.
It’s time we step up and take control of our own lives. Nobody else is going to do it for us.
We Can’t Wait For Barack Obama.
