The Laptop Millionaire A Guide to Making Money Online

Updated on November 7, 2014

Learning the Ins and Outs of Online Passive Income.

Don't you wish it was really easy to make money online? Don't you wish there was a book that just laid everything out in simple steps?

So, do I. Unfortunately I haven't found that book yet. However, I have found that everything I read and everything I learn continues to move my closer to my goal.

"The Laptop Millionaire A Guide to Making Money Online" is one of my favorite books. It still hasn't made me a millionaire even though I have a perfectly good laptop.

It's one of my favorite books now, but we got off to a rocky start.

I'm a Skeptic

Every day my inbox has offers that promise me hundreds of dollars by working from home and doing virtually nothing.

Chances are, you've seen those emails too.

Sadly, people spend their hard earned money on these scams.

Making money online takes work, patience and dedication.

Which is why I wasn't too impressed with the introduction to The Laptop Millionaire.

Mark Anastasi describes how he was so broke and so heavily in debt he was homeless and could not afford 37 cents for a piece of broccoli or a cucumber.

He has an epiphany in a graveyard, and attends a seminar on business strategies for millionaires. Within a month he has made $10,000.

"Oh, oh", I thought. "This can't be good".

It Got So much Better

The Laptop Millionaire, it turns out, is loaded with great information.

It details how to make money on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Fivver .

There are chapters on Search Engine Optimization, outsourcing and local business marketing.

I keep the book on my nightstand and read and re-read it. I haven't absorbed it all, and I certainly haven't tried everything.

The Biggest Lesson from The Laptop Millionaire

I'm getting great tips on how to build my online passive income.

Most importantly, I've learned about the philosophy of creating work that helps people.

Can you help someone, lose weight, save a relationship or choose the perfect gift?

If so, your work is valuable and you deserve the rewards that come with your hard work.

      Yes, I am currently reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series, and they are amazing. I would read these along with other books like the hunger games and harry potter. I am a fan of all fantasy books, and it would be a great idea to add some of these really popular books to your site.
