How To Get Rich Quick

By Posted on 5 Comments 2 min read

Do you ever wonder about the gazillions of websites and blogs all offering advice on how to get rich quick? Every one of them saying the same thing, ‘I make $5,000 every hour, every day of the week and it’s so simple.’ I’m sure if it really was that simple to make such huge amounts you wouldn’t want to tell anyone about it.

Like most sane, normal thinking people, I know it’s impossible. But these websites continue to flourish and they draw in millions of people, all hoping for the holy grail of getting very rich. I’ve looked out of curiosity, honestly, to see if any of them actually offer something viable. They all do the same thing.

You’re usually greeted by a friendly face who then goes on to tell you about the Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s and gold plated yachts they have as well as the 6 figure penthouse in Manhattan. Scroll down a bit further and there might be a photograph of someone dining at the Ritz (London) for lunch and at The Waldorf Astoria (New York) for dinner. All very nice.

Scroll down a little further and you come to the crunch line. ‘Buy My Ebook Now.’ Ah!! For just the cost of a few bucks, they promise you an ebook that will transform your life and you will join the super mega rich in no time at all! What a load of old scrubbish. Yet they must get quite a few who sign away their hard earned money to get their hands on this literal baloney. And you can bet your life that all the ebook offers is that you set up your own website/blog and sell the same ebook.

A word of free advice from this silly old sod, if you are ever tempted to part with your cash for one of these ebooks, DON’T!! There’s probably only a few ways to get rich and that is, hard work, win the lottery, inheritance or rob a bank. I don’t advocate the last one though, so stick with the others.

I'd love to hear from you

    My late husband was a fan of those ‘get rich quick’ schemes. I think over our marriage there was more than $20,000 dollars invested in that garbage. I know personally of at least $15,000 of it, and I bet there was more. I grew to dread hearing the words “Hey Em! Look at this one! I’m going to sign us up to go listen…” These entrepreneurs *koff koff scam artist scumbags koff koff* would offer a ‘free’ lecture on their plan/scheme and tell the sucker that they could get free advice from the author HIM/HERself… and when you were there, they’d do exactly what they offered to do; and you certainly got what you paid for, which was nothing. You had to sign up for their $2,000 seminar to get the ‘full benefit of my expertise”. My husband was on who knows how many mailing/contact lists from these sorts and I still get junk mail today from some of them. E-books are just the tip of the iceberg. There are franchises to be sold, seminars, more gullible fools to corral. And hubby never learned the wise advice you offered for free: it takes HARD WORK to earn a fortune. It does not fall into one’s lap because some slick salesman claims it does. That or be a trust fund baby (inherit it), or win the lottery. Some chance.

      So sorry to hear about your late husband. I have heard of many people who find it addictive and can never get of the vicious cycle that this sort of thing seems to produce. You’re right about the ebooks being the tip of the iceberg. It is a shame that some people get caught up in it all, and of course, it doesn’t just affect them, it affects their families too as you know.
