Making money these days seems to have become rather difficult. This may be true in a sense, but the truth is that making money has also in a way become easier. Sounds contradictory right? I know. But lets break it down a little further shall we?
The difficulty of making money these days has a lot to do with the state of global economics. Lets face it, times are hard, and jobs have never been as scarce as they are right now. The global economic system is very fragile, markets are collapsing as the trade and production power-houses are shifting. Companies are downsizing and liquidating all over the place, and thousands of people have been left jobless as a result.
The importance of getting a college education or a university degree has also been put under question. Thousands of scholars graduate from tertiary institutions, only to be welcomed into the world of unemployment. Well, it’s either that or they settle for minimum-paying jobs that exploit them. There are those scholars who get ahead faster than others though: the architects; lawyers; accountants; engineers and actuarial scientists. But for the regular BA or B Com graduates, life isn’t so friendly after graduation, and some begin to wonder about whether or not the four years of schooling was entirely necessary. Its almost like universities and colleges are teaching us how to become workers for other people.
Now lets look at the brighter side of things. Although money may seem daunting, we must look at why it has become difficult. In the old days, making money was based on educational qualifications and entrepreneurship. It’s either you got a good job after your tertiary education or you became successful through business. Nowadays, education is still important, but will not lead you the financial freedom you dream about. There are a lot of unemployed graduates in the world, and a majority are working regular, low paying, nine to five jobs.
Making money today has changed. Some people get lucky and win the lottery, some hit gold mines in simple ways that nobody taught possible and a minority make lots of money from they dream jobs. The fact is, the changes in the world powers, economics and technologies have opened up many little loopholes that are waiting to be exploited. The internet is the biggest example. This life-saver has not only made global communication as easy as pie, it has made for money to be sent zooming through the atmosphere to bank accounts all over the world. Products and services can be provided through the internet and business can be done from across oceans.
The people of today must realise that most commerce and exchange of money is moving onto the internet. There is something for everyone on the internet. You can simply complete surveys and make money on the internet. Whether you are experienced or not, the internet will save your life if you explore it a little more. Many people have quit their day jobs and pursued internet marketing careers and made huge mounds of cash, from their living rooms infront of a laptop. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Even if you have a jobs already, the internet can make it possible for you to be earning a few extra hundred (or even thousand) dollars every month or every week.
This is the era of the innovator. Many are already raking in millions of dollars on the internet. I suggest you jump in before the net gets saturated. It really is a goldmine, and the possibilities are endless.
