I've been having thoughts about creating automated passive income. Here are 5 ways you can go about doing it.
1) Create website, sell affiliate marketing campaign, promote
2) Create Google Adsense Websites, promote
3) Write on a daily basis and post to triond.com or helium.com
4) Outsource your SME (Small Medium Enterprise) and work on something else
5) Sell music through Cdbaby.com

Just found another cool blog site here.
I've been trying to search the web looking for good info and websites about real people and how they make a real living from writing or blogging. I've been sick of seeing all these really long landing pages about how to make $20,000.00 a month by not doing anything or so called 'automated programs', where you could just sit back and relax and watch the money pile up. Even those writing websites that claim they have the program to earning you $5,000.00 by inputing words into documents; not really sure I how I could believe those programs.
I'm looking for real stories of ordinary people with real problems that are willing to share their real solutions. I want to know how they make money on a monthly basis through blogging.
One of the coolest websites I've found to be 'real' is blogpaysu.com. The writer shares many experiences from, Affiliate Programs, Blog Advertising, Blog Promotion, Building traffic, Money Making Services, Money Making Tips & Tricks, and Paid To Blog. I''ve just learned alot from this blog.
I advise you to check out this cool website at blogpaysu.com.
See you there!
Looking back into my own life, there have been many delayed successes in my life that I would not have traded anything for those priceless lessons. Almost at some part of our lives, we will be faced with a decision to make that will effect our lives for the long term. It is these decisions that mold our lives and carry on to our future. I want you all to take the time to reflect within your own lives and look at all of the things you've done to reach the stage you are currently in.
I want you all to throw away all the 'what ifs' and 'what could'ves' in your vocabulary and also do not listen to people who do same on your behalf. Speaking of others; if people tell you 'what ifs' & 'what could'ves' towards you, there is no point in listening to them because they want you to know that they position themselves higher than you in transcending a negative thought to your head of your decisions.
These conversations I've had with people have always puzzled me in how they perceive their own life. Is it that they do not have confidence in themselves to try to exploit a decision made, or do they just have too much pride for themselves and do not have inner peace within. I say both.
Remember, listen to yourself and remember that your decisions made in the past have created the 'super duper awesome person you are now! :-)

I'd like to share to you all my easiest source of income.
One of my sources of income is PPC - Paid Per click (Google Adsense, Yahoo publisher, etc), where if someone browsing my website clicks on ads I put on my website, I get paid a small fraction of money. Well, this is a bit different as I'd like to introduce to you all, PTC - Paid To Click. Basically, by clicking our own ads, we get paid!!
Different than PPC where if we are caught clicking our own ads, we can be banned by the company that provides the service (ex.Adsense); where in PTC, we make money by clicking our own ads.
I make good money just by spending less than 5 minutes a day working on it, even without having to think. THIS IS TRULY THE EASIEST SOURCE OF INCOME FOR ME!
Believe it or not, coming from a 3rd world country, I'm actually making money while working on my activities or while I'm browsing the net. This is too easy.
I advise you to join me. I thought it was a scam at first, but since I've joined, I've made more money in my first week more than I made on my first week using Google Adsense or any other PPC website. And the best thing is, it is FREE to sign up. No spendings to begin with.
Please check it out below!! Sign up to all now and make money instantly.

One of the keys to self development and the success in one's life is to create a balance between work and life. Both of them go hand in hand as work (entrepreneur/employee) sustains your life by providing you the end necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, money, and your needs to survive. You need money to fuel your life as we all live in a world with economics and trade. One of the ways to speed-up the process of getting that home, getting that car, motorcycle, clothes, buying that self-help book or purchasing anything with money is through the use of Credit; crediting the purchase with later pay back through installments. Many of us who live in the real world do not have excessive cash lying around like 'Scrooge McDuck' where we can just use hard cash to purchase anything we like. For many of us living in the real world, one of the most common ways for purchase is by using a credit card.
I am completely against over-using credit cards that will burden your life in total debt, because I too was an example coming from a family that eroded financially due to debts of credit card bills. I am though for using credit cards to your benefit and not abusing the power you have to purchase anything with a single slide of a card anywhere in the world. I am all for controlled and calculated spendings. I would now like to suggest to you some great credit card offers.
And they are; consumers credit cards and low interest credit cards.
Offered through the website of http://www.bestcreditoffers.co.uk/, there are varieties of credit cards to choose from online.
I'll break down the benefits:
1. Consumer Credit Cards - There are many different credit cards in which you can apply for including American Express, Capital One, Citibank, Discover Card and many more. You can apply directly online despite of your credit history. There are more credit cards to choose from if you have good credit, and there are also many credit cards to choose from even if you have bad credit. Good or bad credit, you can almost be guaranteed an approval for a credit card.
Here are sample benefits of the top applied credit cards - (click here for details)
a. American Express: No annual fee, 4.99% APR on balance transfers, 0% Intro APR on purchases for 15 months
b. Capital One: Excellent for people w/good credit, 13.9% on balance transfers,
c. Citibank: No annual fee, 0% liability on unauthorized purchases, 0% APR on BT and purchases for up to 12 months

There are also features in which shopping can be controlled by the discounts and programs each card has to offer. Ranging from individual consumers to business owners or executives, spending should not be a pain as your credit will be managed. Apply now!
2. Low Interest Credit Cards - Since Feb 2006, the interest rate of these credit cards have been at an all time low due to Federal Rate Decreases. Now the average percentage for non-reward interest rates are approx 13.29%.

Hooray!! I've just bought my own copy of "The 4-hour Workweek" written by Timothy Ferriss. Its been nearly 1 whole year since I've been reading about the book with interviews, watching videos on youtube, as well as browsed through the website of thefourhourworkweek.com to find information.
Being in Indonesia, I wanted to wait until the book hit the shelves locally so I could get my own copy at a cheaper price than if I'd directly ordered from amazon.com the day it came out in 2007. I've been following up on the teachings but none of it made sense to me, because the info that I've received through the web were just sections or parts of the book where putting it all together would not be possible without reading the book from the beginning to the end.
I bought the book at a local bookstore and without thinking about it I directly purchased it! There were 2 copies left as I asked the cashier if there were any more copies and he said that they only had 2 copies in the store. Woaw, close call, I almost missed out on the opportunity as great books are hard to come by down here; we must constantly browse bookstores.
Ok, first impression of reading the beginning of the book, I directly reflected and said, "wow, this is me and my concept of life but just never knew how to interpret it until clearly manifested and stoned carved by the great Tim Ferriss." I've been envisioning the new rich all along but just never confident about my own concept and notion of life that I was always being shunned out or mis tangled by the notion of 'normal people lives' - go to school, get a good job, get married, have kids, and teach the same process to our kids.
Luckily, it has been defined and answered and I'm going to prove the world that living the life we choose is the ideal way to live this short life. We shouldn't be told how to live our own lives, as we were born alone and will end this life alone. We must choose to be happy with love and integrity.
Ok, back to the 4 hour week; I'm still halfway into the book as the book consists of many eye popping concepts that seem "scary (in a good way)" to me, because I truly feel the same way. I do believe this is the book thats going to change my entire life forever. And residing in the 3rd world, I'm going to prove that the new rich & new lifestyle does not only exist in 1st world countries, but me being a 3rd world citizen can also live the concept of the new life being from a background of simple-low economical status.
I'm not going to talk about the book much as I plan on taking you more to my practices of the book, as I work to live out the 4-hour workweek from the perspective of a 3rd world citizen.
Well, in some parts of the book, Timothy states that being 'unrealistic' is the way to perceive life, and so I'm thinking, would it be possible for me to meet him and talk about my 3rd world journey of living the new rich and new lifestyle?
Does anyone have his phone number? I'd like to call him up :)

I was taking a drive the other day through the busy streets of Jakarta and I noticed so many billboards and advertisements of multinational companies that are spending so much money to get peoples attention. I wonder to what extent do these advertisements get a "return of their investment"? I wonder if these business decisions were based on comprehensive research or just past experiences of positive results from their business strategies?
As I'm driving and into a red light, I noticed a huge NUTRILITE ad promoting the number one multivitamins in the world! I was amazed and surprised at the same time because I too intake these vitamins to carry out my daily activities and I've never seen one of their ads being so big in one of the busiest streets of Jakarta. Wow, I wonder if they also advertised in SocialSpark.com and let bloggers who have used their products to give a testimonial or experience of their own. I wonder how much return they will get on their investment? Not only do testimonials make great ads, but having many bloggers throughout the world in their own special niche markets to write about nutrilite, there will so many people reading about the multivitamins in their own trusted way. I can honestly say that people do get attached to blogs, and readers who are attached to one blog just can't go a day without reading and trusting their source of information.
I can say that if big brands and multinational companies take advantage of advertising through SocialSpark.com, it will not only benefit the advertiser alone but will take a step further into the business promotion model of sponsored-paid reviews.
I then also saw a huge SONY DVD HANDYCAM ad in one of the major areas of the city. I wonder if SONY advertised through SocialSpark.com and millions wrote about their great and memorable experiences they had with their HANDYCAMS, as many of us have cherished unforgettable memories and be able to re-live them through HANDYCAMS. Why not SONY take this opportunity and advertise through SocialSpark.com. :)
Many of us rely on blogs for information and great insights about anything we'd like to know, so it only make sense if these large brands take on this opportunity to maximize their promotion.
Ok then, to all you brands out there or businesses that need great advertisement, please advertise through SocialSpark.com.

Another nice photo of inspiration from www.shoemoney.com
Wow, look at his earnings (Balance: $709,626.81 USD) from Commission Junction! I wonder if a big part of that was earned through his blogging sites? I wonder if self help & personal development was a major contribution to his successes in personal finance..?
Wow, just opened my Email and more good news!!!!! This blog has been approved by the number one "Sponsored Review" company of payperpost !!
I'm so excited as I would also like to give a great example of perseverance and determination by sticking to your belief that if denied or failed, to keep on pushing as there will be open opportunities for you in the future. Let me tell you that this blog was denied several times until today! Yeaaa!!!! Just really happy and would like to share my happiness to you all once again.
I wanted in my heart to signed up to payperpost because after researching around the net, I found out that www.payperpost.com pioneered the 'Sponsored Review' model for bloggers as it is considered the most credible and the most prestigious company in the world.
Payperpost also lets you add friends to your account in order for you to network and learn from one another. It is a great website that opens doors for bloggers and once again, I advise all of you bloggers out there to sign up.
You can earn and make good money if your are consistent with your writing. Also, if you build a good name for yourself, advertisers can come running to your blog for reviews. :) Wow, hope someday that will happen to this blog.. hehehe.. ("remembering to always have the happiness and not the end in mind..")
Its amazing how payperpost can create a wonderful opportunity for me as a 3rd world citizen to give way to live my passion into making a living from writing. I am grateful and I thank the Lord above for the blessings that has come down to me and my family. I pray that our dreams can all come true and live the lifestyle that we seek which does not allow it to be driven by other factors.
This is a beginning of a new life for me and my family. Lets live, be happy and reach way higher than the stars. :)
On a further note, if I do make a good living from payperpost and earn good money from my writing, I will definitely take it upon to upgrade my family's quality of life, reconstruct my lifestyle, give back to those in need, as well as give my daughter the best education she can possibly have by enrolling her to the most prestigious schools in Indonesia.
Remember!! Keep on pushing it as things do happen for a reason. Follow your heart and let it lead you to wherever you'd like to be.
Lets take a look at what you have in life in order for you to make something of yourself.
Let me ask you some things.. Lets see, are you in a state of depression currently? Are you feeling a huge burden of all your financial worries? Are you feeling you are losing control of your life? Are you in a state of near to death experience right now? Or you just perceiving your life in a negative way that leads you to your postponed success? I'm quite sure that all of your problems can be answered to your own perspective of your own situation.
There have been so many examples throughout history and man-kind of how diversity have had an impact in one's life and just changing the perspective in one's life can create happiness and success.
Remember, its not what you have or don't have, its how you handle it that makes a difference.
Success and failure is how you look at it. :)

Being a 3rd world citizen, one of the biggest challenges in life is to do what you love, love what you do and make a good living out of it. Approx 90% of us residing in the 3rd world do not have this option as we must be creative in being able to balance out our lives of dream-chasing and chasing that 'buck' to sustain life.
One of my daily 'life-homework' is to constantly improve my writing for the sake of my blog, my readers and most definitely for the sake of my family. Knowing that you have a family to feed and a little girl to parent, we must constantly stay on our toes to make our value higher to accomplish the bottom line; and that is, putting food on the table. At the end of the day, it is about giving time and giving money to the ones we love. Thats all it matters.. Period.
In speaking of the ones we love, being happy is contagious as being happy and organized are keys to success and enhancing ones level to the next. My personal belief is that writing and socializing can be defined as being a big part of self help, personal development, success, and happiness.
This is what I would like to share to you all on today's post.
I'd like to share to you all my happiness of being approved to one of the hippest social blogging networks in the world of SocialSpark, as it integrates writing, socializing, advertising and creating money making opportunities for us bloggers especially those residing in third world countries.
SocialSpark does not only benefit bloggers and advertisers alone, but it also benefits those residing in country's where writing or blogging itself is considered lame and dangerous (such as mine), as it also bonds the world into equality by the interactive experience and the concept of no boundaries in which SocialSpark campaigns.
I was introduced to socialspark.com by an email that was sent from payperpost and directly took action after receiving the email.
I browsed through the website and directly said, "Wowzers.., Cool place.." You can socialize, help one another in blogging, advertise, network, write, make some cash, participating in volunteering for a win-win situation and even browse through the different sponsorship options. It is a complete integration of maximizing the bond between advertisers and publishers. SocialSpark is part of the parent company of IZEA which does not need to be questioned its credibility as it runs powerful websites such as payperpost.com.
I recommend if you're a blogger looking to earn money or an advertiser looking to promote on blogs, directly sign up to http://www.socialspark.com as I just did.
Before browsing the website you must understand SocialSparks Code of Ethics which are:

Not only that, but socializing, networking, building contacts for the future with other bloggers & advertisers just puts the icing on the cake.

Hello all, I thought I'd show this picture from www.shoemoney.com about how Jeremy Shomaker made $132,994.97 from Adsense and purely using SEO methods without arbitrage back in 2005. I wanted to show this picture to show that working hard to achieve a goal does end up in concrete results. So strive to achieve whatever you want!
On today's post, I'd like to talk about perseverance and determination. Before we start, I'd like to define the definition of Determination and Perseverance below.
Determination - "The quality of being determined to do or achieve something; "his determination showed in his every movement"; "he/she is a man of purpose"
Perseverance - "The act of persisting or persevering; continuing or repeating behavior; "his/her perseveration continued to the point where it was no longer appropriate"
Now you know the meaning of the 2 words, I don't really want to get into the theories or write a whole alot about examples that will only make you argue your own personal situation versus that of examples from the post, but more into being able to reflect your own situation with that of whatever results you want to achieve.
I'd like to talk about failing forward as the best way to undergo perseverance and determination. As you go through the days to achieve whatever goal it is that you have in mind, you tend to be challenged by many around you especially your close ones (family, spouse, siblings, boss, etc). That is one of the biggest obstacles that you will have to face in following through with your goal in mind.
Many that care for you will tell you, "because I care for you, that is why i'm telling you this.. bla.. bla.. you've failed and your failing, so its best that you .... bla... bla.." only to make you think twice about your goal thinking to yourself (is this it or do I go on?) --> You think about it hard, you fall back on your plans, you adjust it, tweak it a bit and still questioning yourself, then the "Perseverance & Determination in your heart says, "screw them, they care for me but I care about my goal/dream", "I must go on!"
That is the key to perseverance and determination.
You sort out and fight yourself that give thoughts of quiting into pushing yourself to accomplish your goal. Remember, all the greats, had to fail always in order to get to where they are right now. It is about failing forward to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.
Listen to your heart and keep on pushing it.
