I’m not going to sell my soul for a buck

Yup, that’s right – I’m not gonna sell my soul for a buck. And I’m tired of being pitched by people who do!

(Thank you Harlan, you inspired me to go here today!)

On line bidding sites that offer a ponzi scheme model designed to abuse the poor putz who actually pays for the bids… NOT ME!

Third tier (yup, NOT even second tier) phone service providers, who offer OUTDATED phones at NON-discount prices and send out reps who know even less about the industry to try to get me to move away from a top tier phone provider?! Sheesh!!

Lotion – potion – and pill companies that actually promises “age reversal”??!! I believe their “miracle” products, there are 3 of ’em will cost you something like $150. /month – but – look at the good side… if you’re 20, (they may have finally pulled this crap from their website), they stated if you start taking this “triangle” of products then, you should EXPECT to live to 140. Huh?? Do they really think we are THAT stupid??

Yet, I know folks personally, who “bought in” to be a part of deals like this, and perhaps some that are even dumber!


So, lets talk business ok? Watch my video and then leave me some comments… I wanna hear from YOU!

Verizon Preparing to eliminate unlimited data plans?

I smell a rat! Verizon is saying they plan to eliminate unlimited data plans BUT they then say they will allow you to PRE-order the Galaxy S-III (Samsung) now, before the new plans emerge and you get to keep your unlimited data plan!? AND… down the road, they won’t “force” you to move to a 2gb/month plan, but, you’ll have to pay FULL RETAIL for a new phone (that will likely exceed $600. for a smart phone)…so, no more contract discounts for those who are on the unlimited plan?!

Watch my video on this topic – it applies to ALL folks who try to access data, particularly while they are “on the road”. And… after watching the video, I’d like your feedback and thoughts – use the box below to submit your comments. The video should serve as a “launch point” for the topics relevant to this discussion.

Very timely info from Mike Dillard and the EVG Group

I am an EVG subscriber.

Yes, I value Mike Dillard’s info that much, I’m willing to pay to receive it.

I just received this VERY timely message from Mike today. In it, Mike reveals how long he thinks we have. I tend to side with the SHORTER end of his timeline, but regardless, I agree with him, it is NOT too late to take action designed to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Well, enough of ME, read on to hear from MIKE and his brilliant team…

Is It Too Late To Collect
Your Share Of The Wealth?


Hi Alan, EVG Research Teamhere, and there’s a question we’ve seen come in from EVG members that needs to be answered.But first some background……Every week hundreds of take-charge individuals join us at the Elevation Group (EVG) to both protect and grow their wealth.

They realize a storm is brewing; and that…

* Debt crises in the US and Europe threaten the global economy…
* The 2008 crash will be DWARFED by the next crash, set to hit in 6-36 months.
* Keeping your wealth in dollars or any other currency at a time like this is risky…
* IRAs and 401ks used to work for retiring “middle class” – but don’t anymore.

AND most importantly…

* That you must take proactive steps to make sure you’re not wiped out by the next great wealth transfer.

So at EVG, we don’t just plan to survive the next financial crisis… we plan to thrive and prosper.

Because of the financial experts we’ve assembled, we know that…

* The safe play is buying gold and silver and holding for the time being…
* A traditional bank account is no place to put your wealth.
* The “Bank of You” can produce 6%-10% returns with zero risk.
* Twenty-percent returns or more are possible when you know how to stack investments.
* And taking on long-term fixed rate mortgage debt is a fantastic idea as we head into hyperinflation, when paying back loans will be super easy.

But the most common question we get is…

“Is it too late to start all this now?”

Absolutely not. And that’s one reason why we were so happy to see this message come in from Joe D.

“At first I was overwhelmed simply because I’m young, don’t have any money saved up, and was at that moment living paycheck to paycheck. With the little changes that I’ve made, I’ve gained more and more confidence.

~ Joe D.

Joe D. is young. Had no savings. And has none of the advantages an older investor might have…

…but HE got started! And in my book, he’s well on his way to not just surviving – but THRIVING – during the next great wealth transfer.

Joe had nothing financially when he joined The Elevation Group. And now look at his progress!

I’ve invested in precious metals, purchased a few firearms and have taken courses on how to operate them as they carry a tremendous responsibility.

The great thing about Mike and The Elevation Group is that they decisively select the most important topics today and present them at the right times. We’re not being given all the information at once and for me it’s great that he gives us just enough time to learn each lesson before moving on to the next.

It’s still a little difficult being that I started practically with nothing but with what little money I was able to save up from my paychecks I invested back into myself and my future business…

…There’s no doubt in my mind today that I will have a business in real estate and hopefully not as an agent but as a true investor.

EVG has given me the proper information and tools to take action and be a successful entrepreneur. It is with faith that I can share with the EVG community that the day will come when I can quit my job and be an entrepreneur like Mike and his partners/colleagues.

Thanks Mike and The EVG!!!

Joe D.

Joe is using Elevation Group lessons to save, invest in precious metals, start a business and even protect himself if the US turns into Greece.If you’re starting from scratch with no savings, you can follow Joe’s lead by becoming a member and growing a solid financial foundation.And if you have wealth that you need to grow and protect in this economy, jump back into one of our 20 lessons revealing the investment strategies of the ultra rich.

There’s plenty here to take you to the next level:

The US Labor Market Is In A Full-Blown Depression

I found this on Harvey Organ’s Blog a day or so ago.

Read this report carefully – I have added emphasis (in bold) at certain points.

I post this NOT to extend the “malaise” some (many) may feel…but to show OPPORTUNITY.

Read on to see what I have in mind…

Comparing the stock markets performance to the overall economy:
Now that stocks are back to reflecting nothing more than expectations of how many times the Chairsatan dilutes the existing monetary base in a carbon copy replica of not only 2011 but also 2010… and 2009 (because contrary to what purists may believe, the only way to inflate away unsustainable debt in a growth-free economy is by destroying the currency), and manic pattern chasers have crawled out of their holes proclaiming the death of the bear market after a two day bounce, what is happening in the actual economy, no longer reflected by the market, has once again been pulled back to the backburner. Which is sad, because while ever fewer people reap the benefits of artificial, centrally-planned S&P rallies, the rest of the population suffers, and what is worse: hope for a quiet, middle-class life is now an endangered species. Nowhere is this more evident than in the following list from David Rosenberg which summarizes how, quietly, the US labor force slipped back into a full-blown depression.

From David Rosenberg:

One Sick Labor Market

There were so many disturbing elements to the May jobs data that we’re not sure we can do justice to the litany of disappointments (with some help from our friends at the Investor’s Business Daily):


The share of long-term unemployment is at its highest level since the Great Depression (42%).


Fully 54% of college degree graduates under the age of 25 are either unemployed or underemployed.

45 million Americans are on food stamps — one in seven residents.

47% of Americans are on some form of government assistance.

The employment-to-population ratio for 25-54 year olds is now 75.7%, lower than it was when the recession supposedly ended in June 2009.


The number of people not in the labour force has swelled eight million since the recession ended; absent that effect, the unemployment rate would be 12% right now (about the same as President Obama’s election chances would be).

The number of people confident enough to leave their jobs fell 11% in May
for the second month in a row to 891k, the lowest since November 2010.

The ranks of the unemployed who have been looking fruitlessly for work for at least 27 weeks jumped 310k in May, the sharpest increase since May 2011.

The unemployment rate for males aged 16-19 is 27% and for males between 20 and 24 it is 13%. Draw your own conclusions from a social (in)stability standpoint.

One in seven Americans are either unemployed or underemployed.

Only one in six of the youth are working full-time and three-in-five are living with their folks or another relative (as per the NYT).

A mere 16% of the 2009-2011 graduating class has found full-time work, while 22% are working part-time. Even those hired from 2006-08, just 23% are working full-time.

According to a poll cited in the NYT, just 14% of high-school grads today believe they will have a more successful financial future than their parents Line of the day, as depressing as it is, comes from an 18-year old: “Thank God I had a buddy at Burger King who could help me out”. Fast-food has emerged as the fast-growing industry in a country once led by technology. Even tech now is fuelled more by companies that produce nifty consumer gadgets and feed our narcissistic needs than those who focus on improving the nation’s capital stock which is the ultimate trailblazer for productivity growth and durable gains in our standard-of-living.

My Question to YOU…and HERE is your “opportunity”…

When did we as a nation LOSE our entrepreneurial spirit??

Answer: We haven’t lost it! It may be DORMANT, but give a man a chance, and many will work to make the most of it.

IF you agree with me, then WE can be the leaders!

How? I have spent the past couple of years identifying products and services that are highly marketable AND are “best in class”. I want to work with YOU as we market and promote these products and services.

Can WE succeed? In a word YES.

Why? I have pre-filtered each product and service to insure that

  • ·         There is a market for it
  • ·         It is priced right and does NOT require “hard selling” tactics
  • ·         It will REMAIN in demand even if the economy worsens

AND… each company I work with has structured their business model to provide incentive to me to help YOU succeed, and you have incentives to help others succeed (earn money) as well.

Think about what this can mean to some of the “statistics” cited earlier??!!

And…lets address this at the outset – most of the companies I work with have little if any financial barrier to get started. That is – the “cost of entry” is either zero, or offers a near zero option. So, it’s not like you have to spend HUNDREDS of dollars to “get started” in your own business.

If this sounds like a plan to you – then connect with me and let me know you’re interested!

This message will be read by many folks, some will act by contacting me. I will make you ONE promise: if you contact me, you will have my undivided attention and I will work with you to insure YOUR success – and then YOU can “turn-key” it to help others! You can even leverage the training that I have already created – just take a look at my video training series (free – accessible on the top right of THIS page) and my Internet Marketing course here –

internet marketing 101


This course is $97. BUT I have been known to give it away under certain circumstances…
