The Solution

Do you ever wonder why our dreams are much bigger then our incomes? Dreams are so vast and huge like the universe. But our incomes are very linear and are not equal to or bigger than our dreams circle. We spend so much time working, but have little to show for it. We have to position ourselves in such a way that we can grow our income circle greater than our dreams circle.

A little description about money

Remember, keep this in mind when you go through this page: money isn't real, money is an idea.. What?

In figure 1 below, there are two time lines. A Linear Time Line and an Exponential Time Line.  The linear timeline trades time for money and Exponential time line in this diagram utilizes OPT, meaning you use other peoples time to create wealth by distributing a product or service through the efforts of others. The percentages on the left will be slightly different now as I created this figure over 10 years ago. It's probably a little bit more bleak now! As it states, the time line on the left is limited as there is only so many hours in a day. This Linear income deals with other people's money or OPM. When you look at the linear income or having or owning a job, it becomes evident that our efforts are limited by time and so is our potential income. Very few achieve their goals and dreams working under the linear time line. People, not all people work work their entire lives and have little to show for it.

I know a lot of you have seen this kind of diagram before within the Network Marketing industry. I know many of you have heard of Network Marketing, or relationship marketing where you involve other people to actively promote a product or service and you in turn make money on their efforts. I myself have been approached by many Network Marketing companies. You can make ok money with the right product and the right marketing plan however, I found that you can really burn yourself out fast. Also you only know so many people in the 'warm market', then you have to branch out into the cold market and that's when things slow down and can get a bit tough. But with the online internet world, you can do so much more with your own efforts and reach many many more people with your product or your ideas.

The online world is practically limitless. Now I know, there is NO all-in-one pill (not that I'm aware of..lol) to help create your awesome dream world, like in the movie Limitless. But just think about it for a second, ONE idea of mine, ONE idea of yours is all it takes to become free using tools in the online world!

Now I want to talk about an author for a few minutes by the name of Robert Kiyosaki.  As many of you might not be aware, Robert Kiyosaki is a Real Estate Multi-millionaire who first wrote the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. He later came out with a book called the Cashflow Quadrant (Affiliate link) and it is illustrated below. He states that the world makes it's wealth in four different ways, simply: Employee(Have a job), Self Employed(Small Business Owner), Big Business(Own a System), or Investor. On the left side of the cashflow quadrant is where active (linear) income is created. Active meaning we trade time for money. Let's look at The Cashflow Quadrant..

CASHFLOW QUADRANT by Robert Kiyosaki

The right side of the quadrant is where passive (exponential) income is created. Passive meaning income that continues to come when you no longer work. On the right side of the quadrant we build networks, create systems and use money to create wealth to "free" up our time. We then can use our excess time to focus on our dreams and what we really want to do with our lives.

Where do you see yourself working?

So.. how do we move from the left side of the cashflow quadrant to the right side of the cashflow quadrant??

As Robert Kiyosaki says, build networks! I SAY, WHY NOT DO BOTH! BUILD NETWORKS and CREATE SYSTEMS. But first we have to look at where you are now and how you can position yourself to start making money online.

If we own and build a system(s) where other people actively work within your system, we begin to become free. Within this very blog I am creating a system. As FUNNEL BOSS Omar Martin says, "We are creating 'DIGITAL ASSETS' that you can sell over and over again! So, take a look at what you are doing now and how can you start working to create a system for yourself. Get a notebook and write down your ideas. Create a mini-system for yourself to stay organized. I personally use Evernote. So write down, type your ideas and create your system and build your network. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. 🙂 And remember,

Dare to Dream!
