…while George Orwell seems to have predicated the future with his ‘Big Brother’book 1984, I think even he’d be surprised to see how far we’ve run with the idea.
You can’t walk two feet nowadays without being on CCTV, a passing car’s dash cam, or some idiot recording your fall to add to the huge vault of nonsense on YouTube.
Heck, even George’s home street in the UK has bore the brunt of the ‘security’ conscious. -Within 200 yards of his home, there are 32 CCTV cameras recording everyone’s movements.
Big Brother is well and truly here.
Now, while it all might seem a little depressing, there’s a lot of good in that little camera in your pocket.
Without an office, or expensive video software, you can easily rustle up a collection of videos and put them on YouTube. – Once you’ve made them private, it’s very easy to set up a PayPal link (and Bob’s your uncle), your customers can have access to them after they’ve paid you.
Nothing hard. Nothing complicated. And you can sell that content over and over again.
Still think it’s hard to make money?
(I think even George would’ve been impressed with what I teach in this easy to create, and watch video.)
PS – And for those iPhone peeps, you can do even more things like record audio files, create PDF documents, and much more.

Now go out and make some money for yourself.
…creating or consuming?
Which side do you spend most of your time and money on?
If it’s consuming, I’m afraid you’ll never get anywhere.
Just like you can’t rob your way to prosperity, you also can’t get ahead if you’re spending the majority of your time on the consuming side.
Knowledge is good, but if it’s not putting some rubber on the road, it’s a waste. – Unless you’re using it for the local pub quiz.
Like most people, I woke up to this a lot later than I should have. My big awaking moment was when I noticed that all my new purchases contained things I already knew. – And were also put together by people that were only a
month in the business. – Doh!
What was my excuse for not starting? – I needed something more. I needed that last piece of advice to finish off my jig-saw puzzle and then I was good to go.
Fact is, I didn’t.
And neither do you.
Sure, you can kid yourself that you need that little thing that’s going to help you get the ball rolling. But why not start from where you are.
You’re never going to know it all. And if you ever could, you’ll still forget things that you learned in the past. – Especially if you’re not putting that knowledge into practice every day.
The other side….the creation side, is where the fun and the money is.
Sure, it takes a little courage to move sides, but once you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Now, if you’re in the writing game, a nice little book cover or digital representation can help sell your content.
PS – Simples!
