Let me ask you a question.

Of all the friends and family in your life, have you ever known any of them to become rich while earning a wage? Now there’s a chance you might be thinking of someone in sales who’s making six figures a year. But when it comes to sales, that’s a slightly different animal and I’ll tell you why in a moment.

Wages, while they can pay for most of your expenses, have one drawback. They are always a fixed amount. Worse yet, the deductions that come off your check keep increasing while your wage stays the same. And if you do happen to ever get a raise, you could fall into a new tax bracket and actually take home less than before. It’s happened to a lot of people and isn’t very funny.

Profits on the other hand, offer more than a wage could ever hope to give you. The reason is simple. There’s no limit to how much profit you can make. That’s why wages can only earn you a living but profits will make you a fortune. It’s the reason why people in commissioned sales positions are different – they’re not restricted to a fixed wage. There’s no limit to how much they can make.

The ways you can create profits for yourself are limitless. You can start part time doing anything you like. It can be training, consulting or tutoring. You could have a landscape business in the summer or shovel snow in the winter. A hobby such as painting, writing, computers or cooking can also earn you profits. It really doesn’t matter what it is as long as you enjoy doing it.

How hard is it to make profits? It’s easier than you might think. For example, wouldn’t you like to learn:

·       How a 13 year old is making over $60,000 a year with her own company?

·       How a 15 & 18 year old get 10,000 hits a day selling chocolate from their website?

·       How an 8 year old launched a furniture business and made enough on profits to buy a substantial stock portfolio and a small cattle herd?

It seems incredible but these are real kids, with real business, making real money that you can verify.

Now think about it. You’re an adult. You’re a lot smarter than these kids. Yet they’re probably all making more money than you even while going to school everyday.

The only difference is that you’re earning wages and they’re creating Profit.

So if 13 years old kids can make over $60,000 a year in their own business, don’t you think you could too?
