Being A Geek Can Make You Money
Geeks Are Raking In The Cash!!
By geeks, I don't mean to be offensive, as in today's society, geeks are looked upon with great achievement and knowledgeable views that the stuff they know could make them rich.
When at school and college, a few geeks you could talk to and just pretty much come to understand they were of a higher intelligence, I remember one, who always tried to out wit everyone else and show off with his binary code and advanced knowledge in computer programming, I mean at the age of 13, he could build websites and simple games from scratch. I recently met him again and he is a top computer game programmer and games tester for all of the major video games companies earning £100,000+ a year.
Now this is just an example of someone who I knew, but all over the world there are geniuses that are in actual fact, geeks! and they are on course to earn six figures in specialist subjects and employment areas somewhere in their life.
It just got me to thinking that if start to read up on stuff and specialize in a subject area, more than the usual make money online stuff, I would as a result become financially a bit better off and be happier too. A knowledgeable person is much better than someone who knows nothing, so I am turning my life around and am going to be a top earning geek(Geek doesn't sound very pc, but computers have nothing to do with it!!)
They say to go into business with something that you know about and that to me sounds like a plan. I know alot about drawing and fantasy art, as I am really into all that, so I will start there and go off on a journey, life's a journey, so take the path and to hell with where it leads!!
There are all sorts of geeks online and offline, but concentrating online, they seem to have a deep understanding with the Internet world and know all the technical stuff that are like business tools that help them build up their online businesses. I for one have found this fascinating and really great when you ask them questions in online communities, as they seem on a totally different level of understanding, although quite connected at the same time.
Chris Pirillo has a YouTube channel (Lockergnome)dedicated to all the Internet technical things you need to know about and he has lots of subscribers and is a Youtube partner which means you can earn through the Advertising revenue that exists on YouTube, I find his YouTube videos quite helpful and easy to understand and plus he makes an online business out of helping people with technical issues and specialized web knowledge.
So the next time you see a geek, if you are at school or any other place, just understand they will be in a better job than you later in life and if you bully them, that will make them all the more determined, although I don't recommend being a bully, because bullies eventually realise when they become toilet cleaners, that they were bastards!!
Try to hang around these knowledgeable men and women, they know stuff and can help you, try to seek out some of these geeks in whatever topic or subject you are interested in, the benefits of knowing informative people far outweigh not knowing anyone like this.
- No wedgies!
- No taking the piss!!
- And certainly no bullying!
A geek doesn't have to wear glasses and wear an Iron Maiden shirt to be considered as one of them, all the person has to do is research their interests thoroughly and build up either a website or something that will stand the test of time, a book, a series of books or some other product. Building on one small success after another can prove to be a great making money online alternative to regular jobs that don't make you happy at all.
So be a Geek....And do it now!!
