What is the Minimum Wage
When I say, what is the minimum wage – does it really matter, I mean it in a way to engage your thought process, to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and to offer you an opportunity to better your financial future. Does it matter? Of course it does! I know what it is like to make such a small amount of money per hour and though it was tough to survive on it many years ago, I have no doubt that it is close to impossible to survive on it nowadays with the higher cost of living.
The worries that flood the mind, cloud the judgment, and shame the soul can effect not just the health of the worker but their productivity. Making so little money that even just putting food on the table or having a place to live can stress you to the point of illness. When the workforce is stressed, productivity suffers and that in turn hurts the economy by driving more people on to social services and into poverty.
The Mother of Invention.
Like I said above, I have worked for very little per hour and have struggled to make ends meet, but sometimes our struggles will make us stronger. Those that can grasp and own their situation and use it to propel them to a higher place, will be the ones who will survive. If you are in this low wage class of worker, don’t just accept it but rather do something about it that only YOU can do and achieve. What do I mean by this?
I’m sure you have heard the saying, “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” and what that means, according to Wikipedia is, “…that difficult or impossible scenarios prompt inventions aimed at reducing the difficulty.” Obviously when it comes to minimum wage the difficult or impossible scenario is trying to figure out how to make ends meet without cutting out something as basic as putting food on the table.
What can YOU do to invent something that can turn your impossible scenario into a long term solution? There are fat-cats who have never made less than a 30K salary in their lives that would say, just get a higher paying job. Well guess what fat-cats, that solution is not much of an option for those who are stuck making very little. I’m sure if you are in this class of worker you know all too well that it is close to impossible to look for and even get a higher paying job, without sacrificing hours for those measly wages you are making that you so desperately need.
You ask yourself questions like, can I afford to take a day off of work to look for a higher paying job? What if I cannot find one? Should I take the chance? Or will I have wasted an entire day’s work for money that I really need? – I remember asking those questions to myself several times. Fortunately I was blessed to run into an old high school friend who was starting up a company and hired me into the “Salary” class of workers.
There is an honest way to better your finances.
But I have never forgotten where I came from and that is the reason for this web page. To provide an option that can instill in you a sense of hope. An opportunity that can lead to a brighter financial tomorrow. It’s not a handout or a get-rich-quick-scheme. Frankly, you will definitely have to put in an effort and work to achieve this goal. The results will not happen right away, but eventually you WILL see results that will continue to grow over time.
This kind of work you can do anywhere, as long as you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer and an internet connection. That great “Mother of Invention” the internet will help you to eventually climb your way out of that minuscule financial hole you are living in. Think of how great it will be not having to worry if you can afford some of the basic necessities. Or for those who may be on food assistance, think of how proud you will feel to pull yourself off of Food Stamps. No more shame at the grocery store.
But I’ll be honest with you, in order to reach a higher plateau of income, you will have to put in hours of learning and applying the knowledge of starting your own online business. This is NOT an internet scam that will promise you $500, $1000 or $2000 a week. Matter of fact, what you make will start out small but it will grow and the more you work at it, the higher the amount you will make.
My favorite parts of this type of job.
There are many reasons why having your own online business is very beneficial to you. Here are my three favorites.
ONE: You can work from home or anywhere that has an internet connection. Sometimes during the summer I will go to a nearby state park with my iPad and sit at a picnic table that happens to be near a Wi-Fi hotspot and do my work. I love that “Mother of Invention” called Wi-Fi Internet.
TWO: Once you set things up to monetize your website and/or blog, whatever it is that you are selling online, will sell itself. You could be out to dinner, or at the store, or in school, or at work, or even sleeping and you will make sales because your business and your customers are global. What will you sell and what kind of internet business will you have? That is totally up to YOU because there are many different ways to legitimately make money online. All you need is your own website.
THREE: You can learn, create, earn and work your online business while you are still working your 9-5 job. Of course I am not saying that you should actually work your online business while at your job but you can spend a couple of hours every night and/or on the weekend. The nice thing about having an online business is that you can set the speed and amount of time you put into it. You are in total control of how much you put into and get out of it.
You can start your business for free.
One thing that every worker who makes very little per hour has in common is that they do not have extra money to spend. But I’m going to tell you about a great way that you can at least start your online business for FREE. However the first thing you need will be an education to build your online business. Now DO NOT be scared that this will be hard. This education is really easy to understand. It is like no other you have ever seen, I know it was nothing like I had ever experienced.
When I first started this training I was a bit unsure because I have no knowledge of any type of programming and I was certain that I would have to learn it. But to my surprise and for your benefit, you can be a total computer dummy and still create a website of your own. All it takes is 30 seconds after clicking a button. The entire website building process is not only totally automatic but it is totally free too.
Now I know what you are thinking. You are wondering, what is the catch and how is that possible? Honestly there is no catch. You truly can get a basic education of 10 lessons and 2 virtual classrooms for a total of $0. Watch the video below for more details. Plus in addition to those free 10 lessons and 2 classrooms you will also have the free advanced training that I offer on this website to help you as well.
Additional free training you can use.
I created this website to not just offer the opportunity for you to create your own online business and start it for free, but to also offer you more training that you wouldn’t get from the initial free training. I want to show you how to survive and thrive on minimum wage. You see, I took this same online business training opportunity that I am offering and promoting on this website, then I built 3 websites with that newly acquired knowledge within 6 months.
After I built my initial free website (this training opportunity gives you a free website) and completed all of the free lessons, I wanted more knowledge. So I paid the little bit of money to upgrade my free membership to a paid membership. Then I went on to a higher level of online business creation training by completing an additional 40 lessons. Some of that important paid training I am offering it here on my website for free.
Why would I offer it for free?
Why not? Like I said earlier, “I have never forgotten where I came from” and I want to give something back to those who can benefit from it. Now I cannot offer all of the advanced training I have received because frankly I am still learning new techniques and strategies. However I can offer some of the training which helped me succeed even more. Things like getting my websites socially active and then using the social networks to drive traffic to my websites. Also how to create your website SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to help you get better search engine rankings.
As I have said above, “I am still learning new techniques and strategies” and I am doing this by reading up and applying what I have learned from Google Webmaster Tools and Guidelines. Some of this knowledge is already listed on this website and I will be offering more of this free knowledge in the weeks and months ahead. Why isn’t it on my website now? Because I will not teach or promote anything that I haven’t first tried and proven effective. I need to make sure that what I promote on this website is legitimate and that I can do it myself.
The video below is one of the many videos you will have access to within your FREE lessons, explaining how to sign up and what is offered with your FREE starter membership. After starting the video you may get a Join popup to appear after 15 seconds. You can just close it by clicking on the ‘X’ in the upper right corner to continue viewing unobstructed.
Are you ready for better finances?
If you want to climb your way out of that low wage financial pit, then YOU need to take action NOW! The longer you wait, the harder it will get and the longer your finances will suffer. Remember, this is not a get-rich-quick-scheme. You will have to work at making your financial future a sustainable one. Jeff Bezos, the Founder and CEO of Amazon, worked hard to get to where he is today after starting in his garage. He didn’t even turn a profit until two years into his dream but he took action, he didn’t quit, and look where he and Amazon are now.
If you want a better financial future for yourself you can get started by checking out the free information I have on this website. Read my review of this online training business opportunity and the reviews of other members who have and are benefiting from it. I can definitely say without a doubt in my mind, that this legitimate business opportunity will make your financial future a better one.
I know making money online is possible because I do it and have been doing it for many years. So if you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will reply within 24 hours, if not sooner. Remember, only YOU can change your financial future if YOU take action and take that first step. If you don’t take action then your financial situation will stay the same or get worse. The choice is yours!
I am already a WA member(vijay0204). I have watched John Chow Videos on MOBE before joining WA but I was simply not interested in Selling their products. But didn’t knew it such a huge scam.
There are many many members of Wealthy Affiliate that were once followers of John Chow or members of MOBE / MTTB, because they quickly learned that what is taught by these so-called opportunities are extremely difficult to make money from. What is being taught here at WA really does work and becomes even more profitable as time goes by.
Loved reading through all the comprehensive yet easy to follow information on your page.
It really does give hope and confidence to newbies and those of us who are still struggling (and trying to convince ourselves that we really are on the right path). Your points that even if we are not making money from our websites yet, we are getting valuable training that we can use right now to make money in the meantime, in areas that will ultimately help our business grow anyway, helping us build relevant and valuable credentials as we progress. That point is almost completely overlooked by newbies and wannabe entrepreneurs who lose heart and throw in the towel, rather than recognizing that they can utilize what they learn as they go.
Wealthy Affiliates is exactly what is needed for people everywhere, as the more and more of the world goes online. Better still, you won’t end up with a massive HEX bill (university debt) for the university level training that you are getting, and it is available to everyone, not just the already wealthy.
I am struggling with the website development side of things, but you are showing me the way forward and I will persevere.
Thank you for everything you do, for contributing your talent and time, to help others in their quest to make it in the online world.
You are welcome Katharina. I am glad to see you understand what I was trying to convey in my content, that the education we all get at Wealthy Affiliate is truly very valuable because you can use it to make money in addition to using it for the creation of your website. There are thousands of companies out there that are looking for people with the knowledge we gain at WA. All people have to do is to market themselves and they can use their websites, even if it is not finished, as a way to show people what they are learning to do.
Just because a person’s website may not be making money yet, the education value of what Wealthy Affiliate offers goes far beyond the creation of the website. Plus the $47 per month price is a far cry less than what someone would have to pay a community or small college for an online course that doesn’t even teach or offer as much as what Wealthy Affiliate offers its members.
I like the idea of working at home. I have been trying to find a way to make money now for 7 months! No luck so far. I will try to follow your example and use a program that actually works! thank you for the message.
It is a journey to become successful online but it is possible with hard consistent work. I had to work my butt off for the first few months but now it is much easier to earn money online. Everything has their growing period. – Thanks for your comment Rick.
