Warning – Read This Before Starting An Online Business

Posted by on Oct 10, 2010 in Financial Freedom

When I started my own Internet journey in 2005, I wasn’t really thinking about financial freedom or earning lots of money.

I thought about sharing my knowledge of tennis with the world – and have more people benefit from what I have learned.

Therefore, I did not have a set amount of how much I want to earn. I just wanted to publish my brain.

So there was not this “catch” in my mind: if I invest this much time and effort into this, then I would expect such and such reward (money).

Taking Full Responsibility For Your Life

Posted by on Jul 1, 2010 in Financial Freedom

Those of you who use Chitika ads on your sites have undoubtedly noticed that Chitika earnings dropped in recent months.

The company has taken a different approach (it does not really matter what they are up to) and that results in much lower income for most publishers.

For example, I earn around 60-70% from what I used to.

After this change I got a few e-mails from people asking me what had happened and there were lots of complaints. I found a bunch of negative forum and blog posts about Chitika and how it “sucks” now.

The underlying message of all these messages was that Chitika is responsible for poor income and emotional state of these publishers.

In other words, “It is Chitika’s fault that I do not earn enough and I do not feel well.”

Money Making Mindset For Entrepreneur Success

Posted by on May 10, 2010 in Financial Freedom

I recently got an email from Amy from who asked me a few questions about my money mindset and entrepreneurial success – and I thought it would be interesting to share.

There are so many negative beliefs around money that cause us to self-sabotage our progress and keep us stuck at the same monthly income for years.

While just changing beliefs can’t just magically manifest money in your lap, it’s crucial to have positive attitude towards money if we want to have a great income and be financially free.

Why Focusing On Saving Money Doesn’t Work – And What Your Intention Should Be

Posted by on Apr 26, 2010 in Financial Freedom

As I browse various websites on financial freedom, it strikes me that so much focus is put on ways to save money.

In fact, there’s more focus on saving money than there is on earning more money.

I personally think that’s a wrong approach for two reasons:

1. If you think about saving money, then you’ll definitely see yourself lacking money at some point in the future. You assume that you need to save money now so that you will have it when problems arise.

You’re already creating problems in your mind, which creates issues in the future, AND that puts you in a state of stress all the time – anticipating something negative to happen at some point.

My Journey To Freedom And Over $9000 Per Month

Posted by on Dec 15, 2007 in Financial Freedom

My Journey To Freedom And Over $9000 Per Month

My online adventure started in May 2005 when I decided to have a personal website. I’ve read many tennis websites and found that, at least in my opinion, lots of instruction online was not that effective.

I wanted to share my ideas with more people than just a few kids on a court (who weren’t even really interested).

It never occurred to me at that time that my online business would help me to achieve financial freedom and freedom from being stuck in a job.

Learning To Walk In The Online World

I asked a friend who worked for an IT company to help me out, and he suggested a website design firm that would create a website for me.

The design, the ability to write text and upload pictures, cost $700. I thought I had a good deal.
