More Than Gold – An Online Business

My wife and I were fortunate enough to visit a gold mine in Africa. We found it to be more than just gold. We went deep down into “mother- earth”, more than a mile deep. We experienced first-hand where gold has been stored for millennia, how fabulous it looked, how thrilling it was, our hearts were beating in our chests.

Many times in my life I asked “how can so many people around the world desire gold so eagerly with such intensity for so many years” until I saw the real secret with my own eyes.

This gold mine is in Johannesburg South Africa; down we went in a mine shaft which felt like a journey of a lifetime, deep into the belly of the earth. We walked through a narrow tunnel, we felt the high and humid temperature and we noticed the dimmed lights hanging on the side of the tunnel that portrays a scary movie.  Finally when we reached the rock-face where the gold was layered in its splendid beauty that was tucked away in solid rock, we stood in awe.

With our fingers we touched the rough rock-face surface, we admired the sight in the dim light and it brought smiles to our faces. We dreamt about what this gold can bring in our lives, the pleasure and the beauty it can offer people. What a gorgeous sight to see. Hidden for such a long time where no person has seen it before. Yes, it was a thrilling moment.

The glittering layers of gold embedded in hard rock, it’s so enticing to the mind. The real stuff, never been owned before, it belongs to mother earth, but it needs to be mined with careful planning, great skill and hard work. It was very overwhelming to think that there was over a mile of rock piled up above our heads, one gets the feeling of total insignificance. The mind quickly moves away from sensing such danger. You bring the mind back to it senses and you start to dream again when you see the layers of gold glittering in front of you. Our headlamps flashing left and right which created a shining reflection back to us. You get the urge to dig it out by hand, but realize that knowledge and skill has to be applied to bring it to the surface and only then can it be melted, purified, shaped and then admired and enjoyed.

Our tour leader told us that the mines are in operation 24 hours a day, it never stops and it shuts down only on Christmas day. He brought us back to the surface in the slow mineshaft elevator; he took us to the melting pots which are above ground. Hot flames melted the pieces of rock in the red hot oven; the heat could be felt from a distance. Skilled workers poured out the melting lava in rectangular block containers, the gold started to glitter again; it has been separated from the dirt. After the cooling down period, it was poured out for us to view and admire. Big square blocks of solid gold from deep down in the unknown world.

How majestic it was, how fortunate to see such beauty and to experience the feeling of wealth that it can bring to so many when you show it to others – precious gold that was hidden for thousands of years. People enjoy that feeling of great wealth and beauty when you own a piece of such beauty. Yes, we had the privilege to see it deep underground in the belly of the earth and now it’s in a pure solid block, but it took skill and leadership to bring it up to this stage. More skill is required to take it to the next level for it to become even more usable.

Recently, I sat down and recalled that great experience we had. It came to mind that an online home-based business is a carbon copy of digging and finding gold. The whole earth where gold is stored is the equivalent of the “internet”. It is overwhelming and confusing as to where to search for the glittering gold that the internet can offer you know it’s there, but it’s hidden under lots of “internet dirt”.

The drive to search for it to strike it rich, the knowledge and skill that is needed to bring it to the surface, the refining process; all this takes special skill sets to bring it to reality. Yes, the leaders in the mines know it takes a step at a time to have the end result. The concentration on the essential things, the purification process, the overcoming of obstacles, the learning processes, the self-mastery, the action to be taken in order to obtain it, the team-work and co-operation that is needed to succeed while keeping the end result of success in mind.

All of those steps are necessary to get that feeling of glittering success that brings joy in one’s life knowing it will shine bright eventually. The feeling of owning the gold, to love it, to share the beauty with others, then they too will start to desire it, then they want it for themselves and they will show it to others. I thought to myself that is why so many people around the world desire gold so eagerly with such intensity for so many years. An online home based marketing business is a carbon copy of the gold mining process. It is duplicating it every step of the way. It requires searching for the true stuff, sifting out, purifying it and working on it so that it can work 24 hours a day nonstop around the world, just about the same as the gold mine.

My wife and I have experienced this gold mine venture firsthand both with gold and with internet marketing. We have been successful in training many people around the world. We became leaders to others because we had hard knocks in life and we endured.  This leadership is now offered for people to achieve what they thought was impossible for themselves before. They get a much higher vision by setting higher goals and in many cases achieve far greater results than what they thought possible for themselves. The shining of the gold comes out in the dim light until the headlamp flashes on it, it starts to glitter again. A new mindset skill elevates the possibility to overcome, to win to achieve and to reach the goal.  

This is fulfilling and it’s exciting, but it’s even more exciting for those who are getting trained. It’s a satisfying feeling to give and share new skills and we know it should be shared with many who are hungry for great leadership. Helping others always gives us the feeling of freedom and happiness. Self-investment is like searching for gold in the earth, when it’s found and one masters the skill of bringing it to the surface to melt it gives great joy.  That is when it stands solid in this unpredictable, dangerous and fast moving world.

As a family we travel a lot, it is exciting and enlightening and extremely educational. We have learnt a lot from the goldmine episode, it is far more than just digging for gold.

If you want to know more about our life’s experiences link to our blog, MySpace, you will see that we are enjoying every moment as a whole family.

The IoT and the Day the Internet Died, Almost

A little over a week ago, the Internet almost died.

Starting on Thursday, October 20, much of the U.S. and parts of Western Europe experienced a massive outage. Some of the most popular and heavily used websites in the world went silent. Poor Donald Trump couldn’t tweet for a few hours.

And it was all because of cheap webcams and DVD players… perhaps even one of yours.

Making Connections

To understand how this happened, you need to understand how Internet of Things (IoT) devices work.

If you’re reading this, you have an Internet connection. To make that connection, your computer or smartphone needs to have three things:

  • A piece of hardware designed to connect to the Internet through a cable or wirelessly
  • Software to run that hardware, which contains its unique Internet “IP” address
  • A way to tell the difference between authorized and unauthorized connections

The last requirement is typically met by a username and password to connect to your Internet service provider. But it’s also possible for other devices to connect remotely to your computer across the Internet – “incoming connections.” Some of those are good (e.g., incoming Skype calls), and some are bad (hackers). Having passwords for IoT devices achieves the same thing – but only if they’re strong passwords.

The tech industry has worked hard to develop common techniques to identify and stop unwanted incoming connections to computers. Operating systems are constantly updated to deal with the latest threat. Specialized companies do nothing but watch for viruses, bots, malware and other dangers and design software to fight them. Guys like me write about how you can maintain good digital hygiene. That’s why we have far fewer virus outbreaks than we used to.

When it comes to Internet connections, IoT hardware has pretty much the same setup. But there are three big differences.

One is that the username and password setup may be hard to alter – it may even be hardwired by the manufacturer, as seems to have been the case with the devices that contributed to the recent Internet outage.

Another is that IoT devices are always on and rarely monitored. Unlike a computer, they could be infected and you’d never know.

Above all, there is no collective effort to monitor and prevent hacking of IoT devices. Nobody is sending out general security updates, like a McAfee or Norton antivirus service. They can’t, since IoT devices are all different. There’s no common language or protocol that could address threats to all IoT devices at once.

Instead, it’s up to the manufacturer of each IoT device to secure the device and to update its “firmware” when threats become known.

We tried that approach with computers… and it didn’t work.

How This Led to Last Week’s Outage

In the recent outage, IoT hardware made by a Chinese manufacturer – including those cheap bundled home-security webcams you see advertised at Home Depot – was hacked by someone using software called Mirai. It searches the Internet looking for IoT gadgets that use default passwords or simple passwords, infects them and then assembles them into a “botnet”- a collection of devices that can be made to do the hacker’s wishes.

In this case, they instructed IoT devices to send “tens of millions” of connection requests to the servers of a U.S. company that provides crucial Internet routing information. Overwhelmed, the company’s servers crashed… and with it, the Web pages of sites like Twitter, Facebook, The New York Times and others.

This was possible because the software running the Chinese IoT hardware used a single hardwired username and password for all of them – which couldn’t be changed by the user. Once the hackers got the username and password, it was easy to program them to do what they did.

Roland Dobbins, principal engineer of Internet security company Arbor Networks, blames this on the failure of manufacturers to work together to develop a common security approach to IoT. Instead, each company pursues its own designs and ignores the PC industry’s painful experience in this respect.

“I’m not concerned about the future; I’m concerned about the past,” he said recently. “If I could wave a magic wand, I would make it so there are no unsecured embedded devices out there. We still have a huge problem; we still have tens of millions of these devices out there.”

Don’t Disconnect From the IoT

Does this mean that positive predictions about the IoT are misplaced?

Not at all.

First, companies like Samsung, which plans to make all its products Internet-connected soon, now have an incentive to develop ways to fight this. Otherwise we won’t buy their products.

Second, consumers aren’t going to stand for a situation like the old Betamax versus VCR wars – competing approaches to a common need. The IoT is a platform, like the Internet itself, and everyone needs to be on the same one. Manufacturers will sit down and come up with common protocols to secure IoT devices, even if they’re kicking and screaming all the way.

Third, the same market forces that produced Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky Lab and all the other security companies in the computer space are going to produce solutions for the IoT. And there will be money to be made investing in those as well as the IoT itself.

In the meantime, here’s my advice. Get IoT devices… but only the top of the line. Avoid cheap mass-produced off-brands. Ask salespeople about security protocols and whether you can set your own username and password easily. If not, walk away. They’ll get the picture soon enough.

After all, that’s the way “market forces” are supposed to work.

Invisible Threads by Priscilla Sacramento

Invisible Threads is a progressive and adventurous romantic fiction written by Gibraltar’s business woman, Priscilla Sacramento. It’s a love story that begins a generation before that of Maria Jesus and the love of her life, Pepe. Their forbidden love is so very strong and will not be denied. It sets in motion a secret that will be carried to future generations before it can be solved. The tale spans the entire twentieth century and is centered in the regions of Spain, Gibraltar and Morocco where the Roman Catholic, Christian and Islamic religions are as strong as they are different.

Within this third person narrative much is revealed about the religion and culture of the Spanish, the Muslims and the English people alike. In particular, the hardships of women are emphasized as Roman Catholic girls often marry Muslim men and give birth to their children. The author navigates her story well as she describes how these families survive war-troubled times as well as the inevitable belief changes that occur from one generation to the next. For instance, women become more independent, they don’t want to just be the property of men and have babies as their main purpose in life. Some will wait until they are much older to marry and plan on contributing to the family income by starting small businesses of their own. It’s not always easy, but change does occur. The book is timely and offers gentle encouragement for our troubled times.

The evening of December 31, 1999 is most exciting and proves to be auspicious in several ways. Families have come together from all the surrounding regions. Pat and Tito Garcia have invited all their immediate family, their distant relatives and many friends to Gibraltar for this special gathering. The children are dressed in their finest attire as well as the grown-ups. The Garcia party has unknowingly brought together a lost family and they celebrate with zeal and enthusiasm to bring in the twenty first century with the best of everything. They want to enter the new millennium celebrating family, peace, harmony, and prosperity for all.

At the deepest level, Invisible Threads is a story about women’s issues, the diversity of people, changing times and as Priscilla Sacramento beautifully describes, “the collective striving of the human species.” While seemingly invisible, the day to day lives of everyday people reveals how small the world is and how connected we all really are. An invisible link becomes visible to us as we see human beings strive for love and happiness in an unpredictable world. This is a delightful, yet serious, romantic fiction that will speak to the heart of women and romantic fiction lovers everywhere. Also, it will speak to anyone who likes an insight into the history and culture of the regions of Spain, South Africa and British ruled Gibraltar – all different in beliefs and customs, yet similar in the desire for love, happiness and meaning in their world.

The Rise Of Binary Options and the Profit That Can Be Made From It

In a world where everyone is seeking access to quick and easy money, a new stock market trading instrument by the name of Binary Options may offer you the best opportunity to make fast money under the right management style.

The rise of Binary Options trading have been nothing less then breathtaking and its popularity is expected to only grow in the next few years as more people learn what it is and how easy they can profit from it.

what are Binary Options?

Binary Options trading is simply a straight forward prediction on how the market price of a certain stock, index, forex pairing, or commodity will perform over a specific amount of time.

First, you pick an asset to trade on, then decide whether this asset will either rise or decline within a specific time frame of your choosing. For example, I could decide to pick “Oil” as an asset and predict that it will rise above “$90” within the next 15 or 30 minutes. Keep in mind that you decide the time frame.

The next step is to pick the amount of money you want to bid for your prediction..You could bid for as low as $10 per trade and expect a profit up to 75% to 85% depending on the broker of your choice..

Once this process is done, you just need to sit back and wait until the expiry time. If your prediction is right, you win 85% profit on top of your initial investment. If the prediction is wrong, you lose all your investment.

Binary Option Signal Providers

If you’re looking to turn this into a full blown income opportunity, then a signal provider will be necessary since most of them have a 70% winning records.

The right signal provider with a verifiable record of 70% will surely make you a large profits but it is important to check their trade win-lost record data which should be viewable to potential customers. I have a list of trusted signal providers on my website provided to you at the end of this article.

Binary Option Signals are basically trade “alerts” given by stock market experts for market assets such as currency pairs, indexes, commodity and stocks. These trade alerts will tell you which assets to trade on, the direction and the time to do so. How you will receive these signals varies depending on the providers. Some offers you the signals via emails, SMS, or Skype.

Some of these signal-providers will demand a fee for their services based on whether their signals made you a profit so it is a win-win for both party.

Before Binary Options

Before Binary Option, if you wanted to invest in the stock market and buy stocks like Microsoft or Intel, you pretty much had to not only do so through financial brokers but you also had to have $25,000 in your account for them to even take your call. Not only that, but it would usually take much longer to generate any significant profit. With Binary Option, all of these barriers have been taken down for the little average guys to get into the financial market and risk very little money.

With Binary Option, you do not need a large amount of money to start trading, you can start trading with as little as $50 at some brokers and you would be able to earn a return/profit of up to 91% of the amount you invest if you win your trade.

For example, if I was to invest $100 on Microsoft binary option stocks with a payout of 72%, I could expect to earn a profit of $72 if the trade wins. If the trade loses, then you would lose your entire investment of $100 unless your binary option broker offers you what is known as an “out of money payout”, meaning even if your trade loses, you still gain back a percentage of your $100 investment. Brokers like AnyOption offers a 15% out of money payout.

My Experience

I have been trading Binary Options for about 3 months now and managed to make a profit of about $2,350 to this point. At first, I traded on my own but wasn’t doing so well, so I decided to get a “signal provider” and my profit started to rise.

I deeply recommend you to get a signal provider if you want to make money off this. If you go to my website provided to you at the end of this article, you will get a list of the best and most trusted signal-providers that I use to make my $2,350 profit in just 3 months.

Final Conclusion

Binary options is by far the best way to make easy and fast money online and I truly believe you should give it a look if you’re in need of money. If you’re a novice, make sure you get a signal provider and they will basically do all the work for you by telling you when to trade and on which assets to do so.

If you want, you and I can trade together and I could help you out as you get started… Just leave a message on my website below and I’ll respond. More and more people are catching on this this wonderful income opportunity and it is your time to get in and make that money.

So when a visitor visits your site and clicks on the ad, a certain amount of money is credited into your account.

How Can I Make Money During This Recession?

How can I make money? That is a common question during this recession. But people like to make extra money or better money in the best of times. But during a recession, it is a serious matter indeed. I was born in 1932 which was the worst year of the depression. As I remember so was the next year and the next. It really didn’t end until the economy of WWII started to kick in. Nobody knows when this one will end even though it is “officially” over. With the deficits maybe never.

To answer the question, “How can I make money?” I have tried to break it down in to a few general categories as follow:

Find a Job

The immediate way to gain or increase income is to get a job, or a better job, or an extra job. I notice on sad stories on TV that many have two or three jobs. These are usually low-paying jobs that don’t quite bring in the bacon. Usually the person lost a good high-paying job and then had to take what he or she could find to support the family and to pay off all those bills created when times were “good.”

If you need a job learn this: Most all jobs are obtained through contacts. So to answer your question, “How can I make money?” then renew your contacts and make new contacts. For example you might call an old friend and tell him that you are out of work. Ask if he knows where you might find a job. Ask if he can help you. Then till him to let others know you are out of work and would appreciate any help he might give you. Ask if he knows a person who might be able to help you.

I am not going into the details of obtaining a job but I will list some thoughts on the matter:

1.You need an appointment for a job interview. Say you write a note to a manager you know in a local company. Ask for an interview. In your letter give some details of your educational details and employment background but mainly say how you think you could help the company if you were employed. Always give a phone number where you can be reached. Ask in your letter for the person to call you at the number for further discussion and to set up an appointment.

2.Have a resume. That is were the nitty-gritty goes. But be careful what you write. Don’t put things in there that would not be discussed in a business-like interview. Keep your religion and political activities out of the resume. Also, your hobbies are not that interesting. The purpose of a resume is to focus on the job you are trying to obtain. If you are looking for work in more than one area, then you need more than one resume. Give your vita (birth date, etc.) and contact information, the job you are applying for, the experience you have in that area, your education, any publications and activities in organizations that support your request.

3.Even if you go to an interview for a construction worker, dress like you are going to church right after the interview. Make sure you are shaved if you are a man, have your shoes polished, and that your tie is straight, not gaudy, and that you shake hands with a firm but not too-strong grip, and that you have a big smile on your face.

4.During the interview, listen carefully to what is being said. Pickup on things you can elaborate on. Avoid areas that are not of interest to the interviewer. Be enthusiastic but not overly so.

5.Ask for the job. Don’t start off asking about the salary before you get the job. Even then wait for the offer before you respond.

There are many resources to help you improve your chances of obtaining a better-paying job. Go to your library and search the net. Resume formats are readily available. Also don’t neglect employment services in your areas including resources your church or club might have available. Spread your wings!

Start a Local Business

Many new businesses are started during recessions. People are desperate to get something going. The self-reliant rely on there own skills or expertise.

There are many resources to help you get started in a new business. First start by talking to your banker. Ask him if he knows of business start-up opportunities in your area. Are there business that you might be able to take over?

Go to your local colleges and university and talk to people who are assigned to help small businesses. Talk to your Chamber of Commerce and local business clubs. Most important, talk to other business owners. Tell them that you are thinking of starting a business and ask for pit-falls to watch for, how to get financing, how to choose a location, what local business cost are, how he got started, what help he received on start-up, and let him do most of the talking. Who does he know that could help you?

Once you have decided which business you would like to start, write a business plan. Your local resources will help you prepare it. Some colleges and organizations offer classes to help you get going. These are usually taught by retired business people who know what they are talking about. One you have your plan, have your banker look it over. Ask your banker for help with financing. The Small Business Administration may insure your loan. To get such a loan, start with your banker.

In your business plan, state the objectives of your business in regard to your suppliers, your customers, and the community. Describe what you plan to provide to your customers including good service. Your business plan should not only discuss products, manufacturing, and financing but also how you are going to promote your business. After all is said and done, you must get customers in your door. After you get things going, you may want to offer products and services on the Internet but don’t get the cart before the horse.

Work at Home Using Online Sources

The question, “How can I make money?” is loved by Internet gurus. They make millions every year by providing get-rich-quick schemes that don’t work. Most all Internet marketers I know have been scammed in this way. But scams are rampant in all kinds of businesses so you must be vigilant. You can always check out a program on the Internet if you think it is scam. Just remember that if you put “Is the Joe Blow plan a scam,” Joe Blow himself will be in there still, trying to sway you. Look for an independent review who link does not lead to Joe Blow’s landing page because the writer is an affiliate of Joe Blow.

Remember that if you are going to be an Internet marketer that Joe Blow is your competition, not your friend. He will bleed you dry. He first give you a gift. That puts you on his mailing list. Then he sells you his scheme. You find the scheme does not work. He sells you additional products that are sure to work but don’t. Then he offers to mentor you on a personal until he has your last penny.

Although many folks go into Internet marketing, most fail. The reason is that it takes training to become an Internet or affiliate marketer. The process is free for the most part. You need a web page and an affiliate link. Free methods of marketing are available but most marketers use article writing. You can get your affiliate links by the dozens at no charge at Click-Bank, Commission Junction and other such sites. It’s all about traffic and pre-selling. Here is the process in a nutshell:

1.You decide what areas or markets to enter based on your knowledge and experience.

2.You make sure the markets you select are producing income to Internet marketers. To do this, you find keywords that people are searching for by using a keyword tool of which there are several good ones on the Internet. You see how much advertising is paid out for each keyword, how many visitors there are, and how much competition there is.

3.You choose products to promote. You make up an information page on the keyword subject. You do not try to sell on this page. You just try to warm the reader up so he will click on your affiliate link. If the keyword is “fishing for trout,” then you must give relevant information on fly fishing. You put your link at the end of the article. It might say, “Click Here for information on great fishing lures that I use myself.”

4.You write an article about fishing and in your resource box you link to your web page. You promote your article on your blog and on social sites and in emails.

5.You give something away on your web page. To get the free item the reader leaves his or her first name and email address. You use a code from Aweber or such that provides the free product, and then sends scheduled emails to the reader about fishing. You suggest your products in your emails.

It takes more training then I have given you here, but you have the idea.


This article is too short to give definitive answers to the question, “How can I earn money,” but I hope I have given you an idea of things you can pursue.

Good Hunting!

How to Build Your Downline – 6 Easy Steps

Are you one of the many people in network marketing who struggle to build your downline? You may have already tried the whole “tap into your warm market” thing, and have exhausted all the prospects on that list. If you have, you are probably wondering what you do next to try and build your downline.

While you probably could build your downline a little bit going the friends and family route, it is not the the best strategy. Not only that, but your friends and family list can only be so big and will eventually run out — and you want to have many more prospects than that available to you every single day if you want to build a massive downline.

So here are 6 easy steps you can follow to build your downline starting today. Follow these in order and you will have all the tools you need in place to see your downline start to grow:

1. Create And Use A Data Capture Page: Creating and using a data capture page is one of the best ways to generate leads (and to build your prospect list). Remember that what you offer people via your data capture page should address the problem to which they need an answer or the solution to what they need. When prospects find you via a data capture page, you are creating very targeted leads of people who are looking for a solution you can provide, right? Creating a constant stream of very targeted leads, and being able to gather them into your list, is the first very important step to building your downline.

2. Pick One Source Of Traffic: There are lots of ways (and good ways) to get traffic, including PPC, Facebook advertising, article marketing and press releases. The key when you’re working to build your downline, is to pick one source of traffic in the beginning. Start with that one form of traffic and master it before you branch out into other forms of traffic. Yes, eventually you will want to use multiple sources of traffic, but initially the best strategy is to focus and get really GOOD at one kind of traffic at a time.

3. Establish A Relationship And Your Expertise: Send out periodic emails to your list. It establishes a relationship with them. It also helps to position you as an expert in the eyes of your prospects (which is one of the most important and effective steps to building your downline). Send them great content and good information. Of course you can sprinkle in some pitching and promoting, but you want to be sure that you provide them good content. It is the establishment of trust through this relationship and through the positioning of you as the expert, that will skyrocket the lifetime value of each prospect.

4. Follow Up With Your Prospects: Take time and call your prospects. Have a one-on-one interaction with them. Also, send your prospects emails encouraging them to pick up the phone and call you. This is another way to grow your relationship and increase the trust factor between you and your prospects — and this trust factor will translate into a strong and profitable downline for you.

5. Host Periodic Webinars: Create and host periodic webinars. Don’t make these one giant sales pitch. On them, share a ton of cool content that educates your prospects and gives them relevant information on things about which they want to know more. Then, at the end, you can offer them YOUR solution to their problems and to what you want you know in your business (and your business opportunity).

6. Create A Roadmap: This step is key, because it magnifies the effect of all of the other steps above and will help you build your downline much, much faster. Once you’ve got the above five steps down cold, create a roadmap detailing exactly what you’ve done and how you’ve done it. Give that roadmap to each new person in your downline, so that they can expedite the process of building their own downlines. And they being able to build their downlines faster (and better) is good both for them and for you. This is truly leveraging at its finest!

If you are looking to build your downline, following these six simple steps will put you on the right path. Forget about bugging your friends, family and co-workers. Instead, put a system in place that will work 24/7 to generate great leads for you and will build you a strong and profitable downline.
