Real Education = Real Wealth

361e6aea-3166-40c6-8565-e185ffbc7fdc-original

If I was a realtor, I would leverage my ugly mug. Instead of the bottle blondes and prom queens that flaunt their plastic good looks in the hopes of enticing brain dead buyers, I would advertise, This Ugly Realtor will tell you the Ugly Truth: No Botox, No BS, No Bluff! Which brings me to fake education. Just like the fake news, it leads to deception and failure. It tells parents that their kids can only succeed with a college degree.

How sad to see 90% of restaurant waiters in Vancouver with college degrees. In many cases, their brainwashed, well-meaning parents emptied their hard-earned life savings into that “education” that didn’t provide what it was supposed to: a bright future, a well-paying job… STOP RIGHT THERE. A JOB? Is that really what you want to impose on your kid? No security, a mediocre income, bootlicking and groveling a job requirement, selling his life and his time? Making his wife work and neglect their children because one income is seldom sufficient? Really?

Now, if your kid isn’t self-disciplined, hard working, reasonably intelligent, and a good communicator, he probably won’t succeed in his own business (unless the opportunity is a “done-for-you” type that will help people across the board to succeed by leveraging a proven system.) Apart from that, he probably needs a boss to kick him into shape, keep him on track, and control manipulate him with carrots and sticks because he would fail miserably in his own business.

But if you want your offspring to make a lot of money so that he can support you in your old age instead of moving into your basement and sponging off you or constantly borrowing money he never intends to return, and expecting you to give him a big tip when you visit the restaurant he slaves in, he needs to be in his own business. And that education is available quite easily and at a very low cost compared to that worthless, overpriced college degree.

Most business owners are generous and like helping young people to succeed, as long as the youngsters are hard working, reasonably smart, disciplined, reliable, and motivated, and they are prepared to reciprocate, which means work for what they learn, instead of expecting a hand-out like so many other spoilt, entitled millennials. As long as the kid is ready to “earn” his training, he can be taught how business really works by those who actually know what they are talking about.

Your son or daughter should choose a business that they are seriously interested in and passionate about, a place where they are prepared to make some sacrifices and learn how things really work in the real world as opposed to the lies they learn from academics, the media, and many of their friends. If you want to learn about business, learn from someone with a successful business track record.

Then approach the business owner and tell him you want to learn everything there is to know about how his business works and ask WHAT IT WILL TAKE IN RETURN. He now knows what you want, but what does he want? You will be surprised at the reception you get.

The following people never got a college degree: Ralph Lauren,  Steve Madden, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Zuckerberg, Rachael Ray, CocoChanel, Simon Cowell, James Cameron, Steve Wozniak, Richard Branson, Larry Ellison, Wolfgang Puck, Ted Turner, and many more.

North America: Where B.S. Baffles Small Brains

13921037_1771293739757724_5080383392444332972_n

When a man on the brink of bankruptcy, with a string of failures as long as my arm buys an online, fake theological Ph.D. and starts referring to himself as “Doctor” and “The Peoples’ Economist” and he isn’t laughed out of the room he struts about in, you know you live in a place where marketing trumps reality far too often. 

This is where a failed drama teacher who has never even had a paper route, let alone run a real business and never had a job is elected the Prime Minister of Canada because he’s good looking and promises to make marijuana legal, and an equally unqualified man with questionable qualifications, who is a known anti-American, anti-white racist and socialist, is elected and then re-elected as the President of the United States. This is where marketing reigns supreme.

And it’s not surprising that the idiocy and absurdity of cultural Marxist Doublespeak and political “correctness,” perversion, and the dumbing down of the voters finds fertile minds to take root here. It’s not a shock to see how many money scams run rampant among the population, from Ponzi schemes to the latest “Pay-it-Forward/Birthday” scam. The most recent PISA results, from 2015, placed the U.S. at an unimpressive 38th out of 71 countries in maths and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which sponsors the PISA initiative, the U.S. ranked 30th in math and 19th in science.

We need to start thinking, to do away with the slogans and the arrogance, and to start waking up regarding our education, religion, naivety, and vulnerability. When I went to school, we had A-stream, B-Stream, C-Stream, and Special Class. Kids were grouped and taught according to their level of intelligence, so the smart ones were able to excel among other smart kids. The mentally challenged had their own class – Special Class. 

These days, the dumbing down process requires all the levels to be mixed in the same classes, thereby dragging them down to the lowest common denominator, and when the more intelligent understandably become bored, they are quickly labeled “ADHD” and drugged!

We allow a ridiculously high level of government, media, social media, Hollywood, and school censorship and brainwashing.  1984 has arrived and most of us don’t even read books, let alone Orwell’s 1984. The penalties for ripping people off are so mild that we are passively encouraging it. After all, isn’t it easier to manage and control sick, perverted, disarmed, obese, poor, stupid, brainwashed, uninformed, desperate and powerless people who have no support system?

Teachers in Canada can show up at work drunk or drugged and there is no consequence because they have a “disease;” in fact, anything that breaks down the very fabric of our society, the white race, the family, Christianity, and Capitalism is allowed, encouraged, and protected. “Refugees,”  a large percentage of whom are hell bent on killing us and destroying our society, are imported en masse by the governments we elected.

A dark picture, indeed, and one might reasonably ask, what is the solution? What is to be done? Educate yourself, share the knowledge, protect your family, take your children out of school and homeschool them, seek God, and prepare. Read Atlas Shrugged, Animal Farm, 1984. Learn from smart people like Stefan Molyneux, Sam Gerrans (see his article linked below), Jordan B. Peterson.  Gullibility is a choice and it carries serious consequences.

Looking for the Real Thing

19029700_1538891932852582_8129078409254858152_n

I talked with a fellow last week who said, “Robin, I’m so tired of the smoke and mirrors, empty promises, imaginary value, and sudden disappearances. I’m looking for a real business with a real address and a phone that gets answered, with real products, sold to real people, and that makes real money with realistic promises.”

He was tired of trying to sell sold suits that make people invisible and snake oil that you can buy at WalMart for a fraction of the price, wearied of the constant pressure to recruit more people, sick of the monthly overhead.

He wanted a real business that he could build in a reasonable amount of time, without spending a fortune. And he wanted dependable coaching, training, and support from people who were qualified to do so.

When I started laughing, he shook his head in dismay. “I know,” he said, “unless you spend a small fortune and invest years, those business opportunities don’t exist, and the franchise shows specialize in selling schemes that cost and arm and a leg and seldom make anything close to what is promised.” He proceeded to tell me about a painting franchise that sold for $100,000 and all you got was $20,000 worth of cheap, inferior equipment and very little support. He didn’t even mention that scandalous janitorial opportunity scams out there.

He proceeded to tell me about a painting franchise that sold for $100,000 and all you got was $20,000 worth of cheap, inferior equipment and very little support. He didn’t even mention that scandalous janitorial opportunity scams out there.

“Actually,” I replied when he was done venting, “I felt exactly the way you do now, so I decided to partner with a good friend and business expert to create exactly what you seem to be searching for. We used our 60 years of combined business experience to create a business that is based on collaboration, leverage, and opportunity, with real products, service the entire US and Canada.

“We created an opportunity that allows anyone to participate in our business without a huge investment and long build-up.” And then I explained this to him.

Choosing the Ideal Business: Twelve Commandments

f8eda101-acf3-413e-af8c-42019e54804e-original

Are you still searching for the opportunity or system that will set you free from financial pressure and failure? Tried some and failed? Still looking for a way out of debt into a stress-free, happy life? Sick of working for a boss and commuting? You can simplify your search and lock down the right vehicle by following the following guidelines:

You can simplify your search and lock down the right vehicle by following the following “Twelve Commandments of Choosing a Business” guidelines:

  1. Avoid carrying inventory and shipping it
  2. Avoid customer service and complaints issues
  3. Avoid collecting payments and paying commissions
  4. Avoid leases, overhead, and rentals
  5. Avoid dealing with/training salespeople
  6. Avoid sourcing products and dealing with suppliers
  7. Never invest more than you can afford to lose
  8. Find one where you can work from home or from a phone or laptop
  9. Optimize leverage and collaboration
  10. Avoid dying markets
  11. Avoid an inflexible product range
  12. FOCUS ON SELLING, ideally through advertising and centers of influence

When my business partner and I created IPS Safety Inc., we spent a year finding the largest growing market – Seniors – and on electronic safety and surveillance products that are better than what is already out there. (Although the Seniors market is our main focus, our growing product range is applicable to business owners and homeowners as well.)

Our Unique Selling Proposition is personal service and quick-and-easy to set up and use, well-priced products.

We designed our business around leverage and collaboration: we offer affordable, lucrative Distributorships that adhere to all the above Twelve Commandments. We take care of everything: our Distributors only do three things: They advertise our products, advertise for more Distributors, and advertise for salespeople. And they can set up joint ventures with centers of influence if they wish, with our guidance.

We take care of the recruiting, training, and coaching of the Distributors and salespeople, and all sales are made on our company website. We handle products, customer care, warranties, shipping, procurement, licensing, insurance, commission payments, everything. After 30 years each in business, we know what works and what doesn’t work, and we designed IPS Safety Inc. accordingly.

We are based in Canada and we serve the entire North America. All sales made anywhere in North America by Distributors and by salespeople in the Distributors’ territories contribute to the Distributors’ income.

For more information, call me.

Choose Your Partners Carefully

20170604_161537 (2)

Choosing employees, associates, business partners, joint venture partners, friends, or a spouse? Here is some ancient wisdom that I would like to extrapolate upon:

“Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” ~ James 3: 11,12

The illusion that people change, when the rarity thereof should be blindingly clear to anyone over the age of thirty-five unless you’re a Millenial – most agree Millenials were born between 1978-1998 – whose ridiculous opinions and beliefs are apparent to all.

It therefore makes sense that we should carefully evaluate the backgrounds and track records of those we consider for any kind of meaningful relationship, instead of sniffing the glue of political “correctness” and “we’re all the same” and “there are no races, sexes, or classes.” That is simply Cultural Marxist ideology, accepted by the brainwashes masses and designed to destroy families, the genes of superior beings, and self-reliance.

Don’t believe what they say or value their “college” credentials, their “testimonials,” or other lies and props; check for yourself. Talk is cheap, but money buys the whiskey. Want to know if they smoke? Stick a cigarette in your mouth and offer them one. Show up at their home unexpectedly.

Take a good, hard look at their family structure growing up, their accomplishments and failures throughout their lives so far, their religions, values, ambitions, goals, friends, associates, Facebook pages, clothes, personal grooming, addictions, habits, diets, physical state, and language, including vocabulary and general knowledge.

I ask people the hard questions in such a way that they don’t even know what I am searching for or that I am delving deep. I want to avoid the bitter water, unacceptable fruit, and salt water James referred to, as well as ugly closet skeletons that will be back to haunt us and dishonesty, disloyalty, and sabotage that we have all been subjected to by choosing the wrong people.

Will we still make mistakes? Of course we will, but we will make less of them. Being selective and choosing quality over quantity, testing people before opening your heart, your books, and your checkbook, and having them prove themselves is a wise way to go when you have anything to lose, especially your most valuable and indeed irreplaceable resource, time. The bucolic scene I photographed above is a good example: walk closer to the water and you will find your shoes sinking into in a smelly, muddy swamp.

Don’t be a rescuer; leave that to the altruists and the silly buggers who feel important dealing with people at lower stations than themselves, because they usually end up being the victims of the very snakes they rescue.

Business: Cowards, the Weak, and Winners

millwall-fan-roy-larner-shouted-fuck-you-im-millwall-before-attacking

In more than thirty years in business, I have met and trained my fair share of people. Cowards are the worst, the weak only slightly better, and winners always win.

The COWARDS are those who will run like rats when the going gets tough; they are disloyal to a fault, politically correct, and seldom, if ever accept new challenges. Popularity and acceptance are very important to them. And when they turn down an opportunity and others, who accepted it, succeed, they viciously attack those who succeeded and call them dishonest, scammers, and greedy. But they rarely start anything – they find excuses not to immigrate, start a new business or venture, or accept a new challenge.

The WEAK are those who never finish anything. They are the “excusiologists,” living on excuses that nobody believes. They like to blame others, their parents, circumstances, their bosses. They are usually strong starters, even early adopters, but when one looks at their track record they will see that they seldom, if ever, finished anything they ever started, from diets to friendships to new business ventures. The weak are back-stabbers and saboteurs, too: too weak and afraid to confront issues like men. They threaten and lie.

The WINNERS never quit. They fall down, get knocked out, but always, like Rocky, bounce back. You can’t keep a good man down. They don’t know HOW to quit – winning is in their DNA. They believe in themselves and their mission, they are strong and passionate, and they inspire those around them. Most winners that I know run their own businesses; they don’t work for bosses, they don’t smoke, and they don’t compromise. They’re usually physically fit, too.

So, in summary, we can say, Cowards never start, the Weak never finish, and Winners always win. People can, but seldom change, and because time is money, we don’t want to waste it. Don’t hire or associate with the weak or with cowards: they’re not worth your time and attention and they’re a dime a dozen. Don’t try to change them or rescue them, because you will lose. Find winners, who are rare, and do what you can to keep them by your side.

Two Reasons Why Most People Cling Desperately to Financial Mediocrity and Failure

17218698_1412378842126148_1994499577432795474_o

Why does the average person comply with the directions of the government imposed “education system” and insist on working as a heavily taxed employee, never able to rise above a mediocre, financially strapped survival instead of creating real wealth by owning his own business? Why do older citizens waste their life savings on college degrees for their offspring, most of whom will end up waiting tables in restaurants owned by those with little or no formal education? Why do we follow the Pied Piper of the financial enslavement?

Why does the average person eagerly label any kind of affiliate program or Network Marketing system, and virtually any other income producing an independence-enhancing system as a “Pyramid Scheme,” when all companies that they seek to be employed in are essentially pyramid schemes themselves? Think about it: In descending order: CEO, President, Vice President, Middle Management, Team Leaders and Supervisors, then hard working employees at the bottom, with virtually no chance of becoming the President or CEO.

In your own business, in your own independent position in any kind of affiliate, Network Marketing, or independence-enhancing business opportunity, you start off at the top of your own structure. Yet most people reject this outright. Why? Why choose a financial prison over real freedom? Two reasons:

Normalcy Bias  This is a mental state people enter when facing impending doom and disaster, be in financial or anything else. It causes us to underestimate and deny the possibility of disaster and its effects because we have a bias towards what we deem to be normal. we project current conditions into the future. So even though we realize we will face bankruptcy, poverty, an old age of want and dependency, and a total loss of freedom of we continue on in the way we’re going, we reject all offers of business opportunities of any kind.

Cognitive Dissonance Festinger’s (1957) cognitive dissonance theory suggests that we have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and beliefs in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance). According to Festinger, we hold many cognitions about the world and ourselves; when they clash, a discrepancy is evoked, resulting in a state of tension known as cognitive dissonance. As the experience of dissonance is unpleasant, we are motivated to reduce or eliminate it, and achieve consonance (i.e. agreement).

The key to wealth is to break free from the restraints of the mentality of those who think like employees and prisoners and to associate with those who enjoy real freedom, wealth, and a passion for their work. We become like those with whom we spend the most time, we absorb their philosophies and world views, we learn how to create liberty and flexibility. We understand that, in order to get rich, we need to create unique, valuable, and affordable products and services for others. This is not the cancerous Altruism that we are hobbled with by some religions.

You can only learn how to think correctly from those who think correctly, not from those who are programmed and paid to enslave your mind and your pocketbook. Decisions are destiny.

The original title I gave this article was,”Why People Succumb to Propaganda and Follow the Masses, Denying Reality,” referring to the Pied Piper of Cultural Marxism, incorporating the route to a low IQ, genderless, brainwashed society of perverted, cultureless, drugged people without families and the ability to reason. As someone said, the collective only votes for the night manager/ prime minister/president at a MacDonalds, who must obey the owners’ and controllers’ – the satanic bankers and elitists’ – orders.

When Burning Bridges is a Splendid Idea

burning-bridges

Aristotle said, “Tolerance and apathy are the last virtue of a dying society.” Dying how? Strength of character, clearly defined values, self-discipline, knowledge… these virtues are dying and largely lost to the dumbed-down, brainwashed, overfed, entitled, arrogant, underinformed, semi-literate sloths that waddle to the voting booths and spill their swill on their video game and TV controls.

How can one define whom to associate with during the very limited time we have available for real relationships? How can one identify those who are on a trajectory towards truth and growth, as opposed to those whose trajectory is away from reality and into the waiting claws of their masters? How do we plan our social environment in order to evolve an improve?

We become like those we spend the most time with, so it is imperative that we reject and avoid those who succumb to the mantra of the brain dead: “Be kind to, and tolerant and accepting of all (even if they kill and attack anyone who doesn’t accept their religion or worldview), because we’re all the same – there are no races (except the white race which we hate) and no sexes (except males whom we hate), and we are all born with the same IQ / abilities/ potential.” Hogwash! Collectivists, socialists, and Cultural Marxists have a specific, evil agenda, and that is the destruction of Western civilization and the creation of a tribe of willing, low-IQ, obedient servants, and this is done through Dysgenics.

The denial of the truth by the Left in no way diminishes the truth.

Those altruists and parasites who believe the world owes them a living, and that you are not entitled to anything that everyone else doesn’t have, who blame the successful for the plight of the unsuccessful, and who have no ambition, goals, or aspirations apart from their need to conform to the destructive wishes and demands of their masters, be those masters their religious leaders, Hollywood, government controlled media, or their friends, are cancerous to anyone who wishes evolve and be the best they can be.

Bridges to these people should be burned, bombed, and forgotten. Give them no access of any kind to yourself. The dishonest, the pretenders, those whose daily habits and choices reveal their lack of self-respect and the wellbeing of others, and the low-IQ, genetically retarded should also have any communication bridges to you destroyed. Most people cannot change, and very few who can, choose to do so. Most people do what is easy and popular, and think short-term. They are the dope smoking, promiscuous, cigarette smoking, drinking, obese, tattooed knuckle draggers that vote for leaders who promise them a life of easy hand-outs and legalized drugs. And they blame all their bad choices on luck, “disease,” or other people.

The androgynous, those who believe the world (or their wives or relatives or government) owes them a living, and those who use religion to excuse any and all behaviour of others, rather than confronting issues and standing up for their principles and values, and those who espouse subjective morality should be avoided at all costs.

Whom should we build bridges TO? Which bridges should we strengthen? Those who demonstrate a strength of character, clearly defined values, self-discipline, knowledge, ambition, kindness, a desire to improve and evolve and question, those who are open-minded, those who do not compromise truth and decency, who stand up for what they believe in, the courageous, the well read, the consistent, and the reliable. Seek out those from whom you can learn to be better, more successful, and happier. Build strong bridges to these winners.

And how about building bridges directly from your mind the very best minds the world has ever produced through their books? After all, when you reads the words penned by George Orwell (1984, et al), aren’t you, in fact, reading his thoughts, indeed thinking the actually thoughts of Orwell?

Grabbing Your Future by the Throat

20170531_140630 (2)

What will your life look like in your old age? Will it be gourmet restaurants or soup kitchens? A trip to the food bank or a cruise to the Caribbean? A nice car or a stolen bicycle? Will you be better or bitter? Guess what? You choose, and it’s not too late to make some serious changes. In fact, what will it look like next month?

I asked the 12-year-olds in my Sunday School class who wanted the five dollar note I was holding up. Nobody wanted it. Amazing. So I held up a fifty. That, they wanted. I said, “If anyone asks me the right question, I will give them this fifty dollar note.” Of course, nobody asked the right question. This is the question: “What do I have to do for you today that will get you to give me that fifty dollar note today?” Be specific.

How does that apply to you, in your circumstances, today? Well, every business owner wants something. And most would be prepared to reciprocate if you give them what they want, right? It’s like asking an expert how to do something. When you offer to help someone achieve their goals, believe me, they will listen to you and answer you.

Here’s a simple example: I just called a friend of mine to tell him that if the person he referred me to a few days ago goes ahead and invests $25,000 in an IPS Safety Distributorship, my friend will receive the promised $2,500 commission that we pay for successful referrals. (I do all the explaining, selling, closing, etcetera.)

Now imagine you feel that $2,500 would be a welcome addition to your bank account. You would say to me, “Tell me exactly how to get you an investor, because I want to receive a cheque for $2,500 too.” And if you want $5,000, bring me two investors. Anywhere in North America. I will show you how. I have all the tools you need. Easy.

You want to create a regular monthly income, like a pension,  without selling anything, recruiting anyone, or investing a fortune? I have a solution. No stock market, Bitcoin, day trading, or anything like that, don’t worry.

Ask for what you want. Ask the right question. Talk to the right people. Be specific. And you have to be prepared to give to get. No begging. Parasites don’t get anywhere with business owners. It’s not too late to transform your financial future. The past cannot be changed, but the future is yet in your power. And together, we can do amazing things.

This One Thing Will Set You Free

12657409_1710929272460838_7725091103619494361_o

Most people are so selfish that they are “other-oriented.” The “Selfie” with which the narcissists are so enamored is blazing evidence of this. After all, we don’t gaze lovingly at the selfies ourselves – it’s all for others to see what we did, where we were, what we ate, whom we were with.

We buy stuff we don’t need and don’t even particularly want with money we don’t have to impress others whom we don’t even like – who don’t notice and really couldn’t care less. We buy houses for what they look like on the outside, but we live inside them. We care more about the opinions of others than we do about what our families and our God thinks of us and even less about what we think of ourselves. And the pain of subconsciously knowing this drives us to addictions and frenetic action. After all, if we’re too busy and drugged to think, we won’t have to; we can simply suppress the pain of recognizing our weakness and hypocrisy.

We dress to please others. Women teeter around in pain on stiletto heels they can ill afford, men buy watches the size of alarm clocks, and the latest smartphones, and of course the ubiquitous iPhones are a must in order to keep up with the Joneses. And to pay for all this junk, they work harder and longer in jobs they hate and sacrifice what they would really like to be doing with the people who truly matter to them.

The most important person you need to know and accept and like is yourself. That’s your most important relationship. Because if you can’t get along with yourself and enjoy time alone, if you’re not, in fact, your own best friend, you’ll fail at a genuine friendship with anyone else. You need to be kind and loyal to yourself, first, if you are to be of any authentic value to anyone else. Your personal goals and values and beliefs should be clear, measurable, congruent, and flexible.

You need to be the Howard Roark in Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead.” You are answerable to yourself and your God first. And to nobody else except your spouse. The only opinions that count are your own, your God’s, and your spouse’s. The prison of the opinions of others is what makes the “Politically Correct” cancer of Cultural Marxism flourish in a materialist, false, hypocritical and suicidal Western world. This will give you courage and focus, and you can achieve great things with courage and focus and the ability to discard the unnecessary and superfluous, chief of which is the assessments of others, no matter who they are, outside of this holy circle.

Neglecting your own health and your family to serve your church, for example, is not a sign of holiness but imbalance, selfishness, and idiocy. The only sacrifice you’re making is the wrong one; you’re serving the wrong god. You have misinterpreted the Bible.

The acceptance of oneself is the essence of the whole moral problem and the epitome of a whole outlook on life. That I feed the hungry, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy in the name of Christ — all these are undoubtedly great virtues. What I do unto the least of my brethren, that I do unto Christ.

But what if I should discover that the least among them all, the poorest of all the beggars, the most impudent of all the offenders, the very enemy himself — that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness — that I myself am the enemy who must be loved — what then?

As a rule, the Christian’s attitude is then reversed; there is no longer any question of love or long-suffering; we say to the brother within us “Raca,” and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide it from the world; we refuse to admit ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves.” ― C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

We need to reintroduce ourselves to ourselves and to apologize profusely for so much neglect.
