You need strong shoulders to carry the wealth. You see it so often that when people suddenly breakthrough or are successful, they quickly go downhill. They can suddenly pay for everything. They start using drugs or use excessive alcohol. And before you know it, they are once again begging. When their success and wealth is gone.
Empower Network went bankrupt
The rise and fall of the empower network. Like most people, I was very skeptical about what I heard from the Empower Network. And my heart goes out to those who lost a lot of money on this online opportunity. They were left to believe in a system that didn’t work after all. Empower Network went bankrupt.
As my father-in-law always said: “You need strong shoulders to wear the wealth.” He was right as always. You can see that once again when you take a look at David Wood, the founder of Empower Network. The poor man totally lost grip on reality. He humiliated himself and displayed himself in a video on YouTube, which I am not going to share with you because the video damaged enough already. You can still look him up on YouTube if you insist. In his wealth, he grabbed for drugs and destroyed his Empower Network Company. David Wood had a dream, a vision, a beautiful website, and all of it is gone now.Some people cannot be trusted, they only find a new way to cheat you Click To Tweet
The Empower Network system itself was promoted by the creators David Wood and David Sharpe, who allegedly lived on the street and managed to earn a huge amount of money with nothing less than a laptop, an internet connection and an old van. My first reaction was that I didn’t really trust their story. And I was right, now they are back on the street again. And with their efforts, they took down and even bankrupted thousands of other people.
Multi-level marketing (MLM)
Also on MLSP, My Lead System Pro, a website that helps people promote their pages, David Wood was a regular user that makes me very suspicious of both “get rich quick” programs. This blog is not about the My Lead System Pro, and whether this is a legitimate program or a scam. The MLSP gives training about how to market your business with the MLM system. I have been in an MLM organization, and I keep myself far from it nowadays. It’s not my “thingy”.
Make money online opportunity
When you surf the internet and look for “make money online” opportunities, you will get millions of hits. And it will be hard to find the right one. At least the one which is right for you.
Enthusiastic people from all over the world will claim they found the key to online wealth. I have the opinion, you first have to learn the ropes for building a website and how to walk the road online. And that just copying a system, doesn’t bring you the success you are looking for.
The easy way to make money
The easy way out is copying and share the opportunity all around Social Media, telling people to do the same.
The hard way to make money
The hard way is following an education, (as you know, any education cost time and money) and after you’ve learned “how”, then you go out there and prove your way. The hard way is also an honest way to make money online.
The millions of opportunities
When you type “Make Money Online” in the Google search bar you get 165.000.000 results in about 0.64 seconds. Wow! That’s a lot of opportunities. You can imagine, that most of them are not going to be successful, otherwise, we all would be millionaires by now.
The perfect education
The perfect education and the perfect way of making money online don’t exist. But there are creative ways and learning methods which prove they do work. For me, it’s the online education about affiliate marketing, website design and developing of Wealthy Affiliate. And yes, I will be honest with you, it has cost me 6 months to earn my first online money. But wow! I did it, and I did it on my own! And I didn’t have to tell people to do as I did. They just visit my website and decided to buy something from a company I am affiliated with.
No networking and no pushing
I hate it to push people around and tell them to do what I did. I don’t want to tell my friends and family that they miss out on an opportunity. I just went to “back to school” again, learned what I needed to know, and shared my knowledge out there on the Internet. And with my results, I now prove to everyone around me, it works!
The perfect opportunity for you
I really can not tell, if the perfect opportunity for you, is the same as it is for me. You can try it out. If you find in Wealthy Affiliate your way I will be there to assist you. You can, without any obligation, do that, because Wealthy Affiliate offers you a 7-day free trial period. You can take a look inside, and judge for yourself.
