Dig Your Well Before You Get Thirsty
Dig Your Well
I was on Facebook tonight and was talking to a friend and client that needs a medical procedure that costs thousands of dollars. Fundraisers have been going on and support is starting to ramp up. The first thing I thought of was a book by Harvey Mackay called “Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty”.
I read it years ago and to be honest, I have not completely dug my well. I thought about giving some money to support her and I stopped. While giving a lump sum of money would fix the immediate situation, it would not solve the thousands of dollars per month that she would need just for ongoing medication.
What could I do. Well, most people in mlm and direct sales would say sign her up and build an organization quickly. One of my income streams is from an mlm that I worked 7 years ago for just one year. I still get a check (not enormous) today. I thought about it more and unfortunately, this woman can hardly get around, much less go out and build a group, even on the internet!
I looked back at my recent hub on passive income and I thought that I really did not do a good job of explaining the importance of building one.
What if your ability to produce was taken away? What would you do?
These are questions for everybody, including myself. I am writing this hub and thinking that I best step it up!
Part of what I do today is to consult people on opening home based businesses. I have researched hundreds of companies over the years and been involved in many of them. Made some money as well as lost some.
A lot of the make money programs on the net are just plain bogus. You either have to pay an upfront fee that you will never get back or it involves too much effort for the average bear.
I have tried many, many programs over the years and have decided that k would design my own.
If you ask the average person on the street if they would want to pay more in tax or less in tax, what would they say? Less, of course.
So, I designed several tax reduction products that help people lower their taxes. You can be a part of my program without paying a fee and make a 50 percent commission. Just go to http://www.taxreductionguide.com and sign up at the bottom of the page.
This may not be what you are looking for, but making posts in social media is pretty simple. Either way, the question still exists:
"What would you do if you lost your ability to produce?"
