I began blogging a few years ago as a means of practicing writing skills on blogger.com, before becoming drawn into the world of internet marketing. At the time I thought it was the ideal way to develop some practical online marketing skills, as my marketing degree didn't cover online or digital marketing. While I enjoyed writing and blogging, I found the technical sides challenging and found myselfbeing pulled into many online marketing 'training systems' many of which had an air of 'get rich quick' scheme about them. As I was originating from the Seth Godin school of 'Bootstrapping', I had limited myself to a maximum spend of £50 a month. While I regretably exceeded this budget, only one or two occasions, I'm glad to say it's a principle which has kept me grounded, but not without loss.
Now we would all love to be wealthier wouldn't we? But often we are drawn into the belief that we can do it with little or no effort with the term 'Passive Income' often thrown into the sales pitch.
As soon as you hear that you should activate your critical mind or turn and walk away. If someone wants you to invest money into their business or system, approach it as a bank or formal investor would. Chances are, that if it's presented as a work at home, part-time business or investment, you are buying yourself a low paid 'job' with excessive hours. Rarely will it ever be something you can do alone or withthe skills you already have.
So on the Money Management pages, I shall be focusing on getting finances in order and developing the mindset and methods for maintaining wealth. Join me on youtube and subscribe for video updates.
