Making Time Out For Your Friends
One thing about being on the internet as a full time marketer I get to meet a lot of people. Some people are just user names, other people have become part of my life.
The internet is a fun and wonderful place where we can express ourselves and creative talents like no other media. An important part of enjoying the internet is not taking it too seriously.
Don't bet the house mortgage on a business opportunity if you don't know a thing about the internet. People may say it is easy. They may tell you that you don't have to anything but fork over the cash and you will get rich. Don't believe the hype.
The following is a quote from Stop Being A Victim by Dave Gray
"If you were a crook and all you cared about was getting lots of people to send you money, how would you go about it?
Would you tell people that they need to work hard? Probably not. After all, most people are pretty busy and they may be working hard already.
No, you'd probably tell people that it's easy to make money on the Internet... in fact it's so easy that they can make money while they're sleeping!
You'd tell them they don't need to do anything... they don't need to know anything... all they need to do is to send you some money and they'll get rich!
You'd tell them that you're an expert at making money on the Internet... or in stocks... or in real estate... or in exchanging foreign currencies (FOREX)... or in exchanging digital currencies over the Internet... or whatever you think people will believe... and that you can make a lot more money (and you're willing to share it with them) if they'll send you some money!
That's exactly what you'd do if you were an Internet crook!"
Awareness is the key. Not everyone on the internet has your best interest at heart. We have use judgment when dealing with people.
Let's briefly look at another aspect is online romance:
Lot's of crooks are playing with people emotions saying that they are seeking "TRUE LOVE". It's a con people. They want to get into your bank accounts.
I had one person approach me the other day. I replied in my chat "Do you have $5,000?". I then said, "Send the money via Western Union". To which they replied I was a scammer. LOL
No I wasn't the scam artist. I saw through where that person was going. Trying to get to my banking information.
It's cool to meet people on the Internet. I've met many people both on and off-line. You just need to be careful. Let other people know when you are going me new people. While we all wish we lived in a Perfect World, some people are sicker than others.
Well I'd love to hear what you have to say on the matter. The book Stop Being A Victim is featured in our book club on Rotatrix Friends

- Success has many different meanings to different people. I have found that there are somethings which must take place first. Number 1 is having Financial Freedom. Without having Financial Freedoms our dreams are always subject to the sway of others. The slave's dreams are influenced by the slave master.
