The irrational exuberance of the Stockholm Syndrome and the misplaced trust and confidence in a system that no longer works tells people that, in order to make real money, they need a college or university degree, “education,” youth, experience, a great job track record and CV/resume, testimonials, and all sorts of skills. Bull.

There are plenty of young people labouring in minimum wage jobs after depleting their parents’ saving for useless college degrees or running up massive student loans. There are bums in the street with university degrees. And there are billionaires who dropped out of high school. You can be fresh out of jail with your face and hands covered in tattoos, but if you offer me an easy, legal, and logical way to make money, I will listen to you ten times before I listen to some liberal college professor or slick “financial planner.”

People don’t care about who you are or where you’ve been if you can offer them what they want. There is no excuse not to make money in a capitalist society. All you need is enthusiasm, guts, hard work, a persistent and teachable attitude, and reasonable communication skills. If you’re driven to reach your financial goals and you really, really want time and money freedom, you can make a lot of money. I see many people who are functionally illiterate (just read their Facebook posts) making huge money when they find the right opportunity with the right system.

The old ways of doing things are finished… and people chained to the past will be dragged down with it. Thanks to modern technology, we no longer need to live and/or work in our country of citizenship. You can collaborate on shared tasks with co-workers and partners who live seven time zones away.

Age, circumstances, connections, experience, education and skills mean very little when you find the right vehicle, and I have one for you.
