Working for 4 Days Straight! Somebody Save Me!

Well, I have the rest of today and tomorrow off after having worked 4 days in a row since a long time.  After all my crazy investments and experiments, I still have a long way to go.  Yes, I have to continue to work a normal, livable wage paying rat race job like 99% of the rest of the population just to put a roof over my head and food on the table.  There's nothing out of the ordinary about my life thus far.  On the bright side, my work is providing me with health insurance $79.30/biweekly paycheck.  I was paying $274.62/month for the cheapest, bronze package with Obamacare.  You cannot get any cheaper than what I'm use to.  I cheap out on everything.  I'm surprised I'm not even on Medicaid as of today.     


Yes, it's common knowledge that we are all just a bunch of hardworking wage slaves here but is there more to life?  We've all been there trying to win the lottery or gambling in a casino.  Well, the newest thing is the crptocurrency trend.  Yes, the market has rebounded since the last red carpet was rolled out.  Yes, government regulators and CEM/CBOE future trading have been manipulating the markets like the corrupt wealthy investment bankers on Wall Street.  What else is new?  Get a job that doesn't suck, stick with it for a long time, and invest wisely.  Now, the cryptocurrency markets are soon to go back up real soon as the future tradings are set to expire towards the end of January.  You can either continue to hold whatever or buy whatever is left as the cryptocurrency market are still of a bit on sale.  No one knows everything, so who knows?  Maybe you'll strike it rich?  Otherwise, it's back to the rat race, again.  

Thank you for dropping by and reading my stuff.  I hope to see you next time!

Bitcoin Sale! Up to 25% Off!


To the the trained eye and investor, this is what it's like to buy on a dip.  Yes, the red carpets are all here pulled right out in front of you.  Everyone gets that chance to buy and get rich quick, but guess what?  You were broke last year, you were broke the year before, and you've always been broke since forever, so why in the world would things be different this time around?  So what do millennials do?  They buy Bitcoin with their credit cards and hope for the best that some day they'll get rich off of buying cryptocurrency like some kind of magical lottery, much like what happened with the 2008 housing bubble crisis.  The previous generation bought houses, took out large mortgages and loans, had trouble getting their debt paid back, and one day everything just came crumbling down in September.  The economy this, the economy that, blah, blah, blah.  We've all been there before.  

In any event, this is a great time to buy on Coinbase!  No, do not start selling whatever you have now and don't use that sell off money to buy new coins.  You have to buy with new money either from your bank account or use a credit card.  Ultimately, you just hold until the prices go back up.  There is no guarantee and you may even lose even another 10%-20% off tomorrow.  For more addition protection, split your buying purchases between all 3-4 coins on Coinbase.  Dumping your money in just one coin or investment for that matter just never works out right.  You always, always have to diversify because there's just no guarantee that you'll even make a profit.  In a lot of cases people will actually lose money, because they will only act out of emotion like a chicken with its head cut off.  Panicking, freaking out, and selling off prematurely out of fear is much too all common.  If you still hold on to your coin or investment share, you'll still have it tomorrow.  Again, you were never rich to begin with, so it's not like you're going to go anywhere far selling off too soon either.  If you want to be a day trader and trade all the time that is fine but know that it would b treated more like a real job that takes much more effort and due diligence on your part.  I'm not about straining and stressing the hell out of myself with pinpoint accuracy so day trading isn't for me.  Yes, the risk and reward is tremendous but you also have to have a lot of luck, patience, and initiative to buy/sell on seconds notice.  On the other hand, I am a turtle.  I prefer just to buy whenever the market is low and just hold it out until I see clear gains and stability in the market, at least long enough so I can make a clear decision to sell for actual profit and gains.  

So do you have the guts?  Do you have an extra $1000 just laying around somewhere to invest?  Well, now is a good time to buy into Bitcoin as the prices have never been any cheaper in the past few weeks.  Just be make sure to diversify!

Thank you for dropping by!  I'm not a professional adviser so don't plan on chasing me around.  Yup, I'm just a homeless; but I've seen many things growing up.  Yeah, the adult stuff that only happens behind close doors that they don't want to tell you about kind of deal.  Such is the way of life.  It's all smoke and mirrors.  I hope to see you next time.

New York is in the House!

Hi folks!  Well, I got my opportunity at age 32 working for NYU Langone-Brooklyn.  For $30 an hour, I could be working in Brooklyn right now!  Yes, we've all watched Sex in the City and all those fancy Hollywood movies but is that where you really want to be for work or just play?  Hold the phones, not so fast.  What does this all mean?  It certainly does not mean that all I'll be doing is showing up with an empty sack and holding it out to mooch more money.  Like with any other job, you have to wake up early in the morning, get out of bed, put some clothes on, rush out of the house, and start commuting.  Driving from New Jersey to Brooklyn usually takes about an hour or more depending on traffic.  That's just the first part of the day.  The next shift is actually having to work the job and dealing with patients in the hospital.  From what I gather this is a tier 1 trauma hospital.  Yes, there's a lot of injured and sick people coming in and out of these places all the time.  The biggest hurdle is some of them one speak Spanish or whatever their native tongue is.  It's not all fun and games.  It's not a nice place to be, and you better be on top of your game at all times.  It requires  a serious level of social and physical prowess, which I'm not very into.  Yes, I can train myself.  Yes, I can do the job.  Except?  I already have a job at a local urgent care making $21 an hour.  Long story short, if I make anymore money I'd have to pay more taxes.  My life would be consumed by nothing else but work.  Little would I know, my time is up!

I have chosen a life of less hustle and bustle.  I have selected the job that pays less and is less stressful.  I decided to only have one real job at the moment.  I didn't want to become a workaholic.  I didn't want to come home like an angry asshole having committed all my waking hours to a place I don't care about, just so that I could make some extra cash and find out later I owe even more in taxes.  When people have lived out their youth and become old, who on Earth has ever said they should have worked more hours on their death bed?  Even though we are diabolically tricked into believing money is everything, our time is actually what is the most precious to us as human beings.  I do not want to spend anymore of my time on anything I don't want to.  At the age of 32, I have the full custody and power to dictate where and how I should spend my time.  I'm sorry, but I cannot bang out two jobs.  I'm sorry, I don't want to pay anymore tax dollars than I should.  I'm sorry, I don't want to wake up any earlier in the morning than I have to.  I'm sorry, I just don't want to be that person who overextends themselves for nothing.  I'm sorry, I'm not the kind of quality of a person you are looking for.

Why can't I just appreciate the job I have now?  It only requires that I drive 15 minutes away.  I get paid $21 an hour but is it enough to quench my lust for more taxable dollars?  I also have access to one of the finest gyms, Lifetime Fitness, around.  Who wants to go work in the hospital when they could be hanging out at Lifetime!?  I sure as Hell know I don't want to see anymore trauma patients voluntarily than I have to unless I was making some serious money out of it.  Long story short, someone else in need can go fill my job.  The only thing I'd be missing out for myself is the money.  Yes, I wold also be missing out on making connections with bigger businesses, other professionals, and experience but none of that really means anything to me if all I really, really truly want is more cold, hard cash.  If I just won the lottery and they dumped a million dollars on my lawn, that's exactly all I wanted, the cold hard cash.  All the small talk and people spreading crazy rumors don't mean anything to me.  I hope this experience does not come back biting me in the ass as it is not what you know but who you know. 

Thank you for stopping by.  We all have to make hard decisions in our lives.  This was one of them, but in the end I've chosen the less stressful job that makes less money over the more stressful job that makes more money.  Now, the kids know why they're not richy rich. 

See you next time!

ROLLING OUT THE RED CARPET!

Ladies and gentlemen it's time to present to you reality!  Let's roll out the red carpet!
And on this Friday 12/22/2017, the economy did really bad; like really bad.  This is just the tip of the iceberg to say the least.  I'm not even going to begin to dive into the smaller stuff.  Well, shit happens and it does.  Yes, the shit hit the ceiling fan today.  There are people freaking out and selling!  I cannot stress how emotional people become when these days come around.  Like a girl on her period, it just happens!  You wake up and there's blood everywhere coming out of your crotch.  Just get over it!  None the less, you always need a plan for protection and that is why you need to diversify!  I cannot stress how important and fundamental diversifying your assets.  So what is in it for me?  What do you do in a situation like this?  Well, let's take a look at some of the greats.  Warren Buffet would just dust off his shoulders like nothing happened.  Elon Musk would just look down, stay humble, and continue to work.  Whatever you do, don't react out of your emotions and start selling everything off out of fear and panic!  People get butt hurt, but they slowly go back to work and start doing their thing again like nothing happened.  A few blocks down the road, everything is back up the next few weeks/months.  

"Shit happens" and when it does the red carpet comes rolling out!  Yes, it even effects block chain technology and alternative coins.  Yes, you get the same bunch of emotional people who sell out of fear and buy when the market is roaring.  Does anyone every pay attention to BUY LOW; SELL HIGH?  Nope, just the everyday professional boring managers and bossholes that do that kind of stuff.  They are use to it and probably stop caring after a while.  They are prepared.  They are trained.  They know what to do in the event of a panic attack and/or freak out session.
     

Wow, just look at that long list of cryptocurrency getting knocked out of orbit.  I'm not even sure diversifying can save you at this point, but tomorrow is a new day.  Don't let money and the market define who you are, what you do, and what makes you happy in life.  Yes, money is important but that's not who you really are.  So how do I deal with such massive losses?   Because I'm already a homeless, I don't really care that much.  I never became dependent on an expensive lifestyle.  I was never spoiled by an iphone, a fancy sports car, or luxurious food.  I remain frugal.  I'm not upset, and I don't want to sell off  in times of red like a crazy nut, trying to piece back a broken kitchen plate that just accidentally fell.  All you have to do is set it when you buy and forget it.  I'm not a technical analyst.  It's not my job to hunch over a computer screen and day trade.  It would be nice if I had a job like that, but for normal people the best protection would be to continue to just hold.  Thank God, I'm currently working a stable job in the health field right now.  It's important to have a normal job sometimes, just to feel humble and find stability in the world.  Having to rely on sales, trading, cold calling, marketing, gambling, and utilizing a wide range of business tactics  is still actually work.  Guess what people will be doing tomorrow?  Old habits don't die.  

People are selling like animals thinking tomorrow will be any much different.  Just hold onto whatever you have and if you have the funds to buy, go for it.  For the love of God, don't sell.  Tomorrow will just be another day.  Why?  Because you didn't win the lottery!  You want life changing money!  Not just a few petty dollars!  If you didn't win the lottery, sit your ass down.  The game will still be there tomorrow.  

Well, thank you for visiting.  As we all know, shit happens.  Just try not to freak out and do something irrational.  There will always be tomorrow.  Happy holidays!

TokenDesk - Blockchain Technology - The New Frontier



So it's obvious to me that I'll be of the poor forever unless I invested in something (now or in the past tense) since I don't like to put in the work myself.  Because I don't like to put in the work that means I'm stuck with a limited number of options.  There's so many things I can do before everything starts falling apart like a cheap Chinese motorcycle.  I know I can't do the work all by myself.  In the bigger scheme of things, all I'm really good for is pump and dump when it comes to startup companies.  I'm like an angel investor.  I primarily invest and become an early adopter of new tech companies.  This is not a script, and I'm not talking out of my ass to look good on paper for a potential employer or college.  By my own nature this is what I enjoy and like doing. 

In any event, there's a new company coming out called TokenDesk that is trying to make buying ICO's and other cryptocurrencies into one whole universal trading system that is easy on the user.  For more information and detail, please click the picture above.  Long story short, we can go on for days and argue about pyramid schemes and scams; but you know what?  I'm too old for this shit.  Do you remember when Apple was for $5?  Do you remember when Google was $20 back in the day?  Amazon was $75 for God sake.  If you invested $100 in Bitcoin in 2010, you'd be a millionaire by now.  So are you serious?  You still want to continue to argue with me?  I'm still a homeless and your constant negativity and bias hasn't helped me out one bit.  So why not change things?  Why not believe in something bigger than yourself?  I for one sure as Hell would like to know what it's like to have money and be able to enjoy some freedom without having to constantly worry about fiduciary problems.  If you don't believe and failed to contribute to whatever xyz company, you'll still be where you are now WISHING you had a time machine, WISHING that you put $100 - $1000 in whatever xyz company before it became big time, WISHING that you had money NOW!  We all know you're broke and stop giving yourself and other people bad financial advice!  

Is all of this even legal?  The SEC is tough on US Citizens when it comes to investing in ICO's or initial coin offerings.  A vast majority of ICO's I've come across warned of such things.  They simply don't want citizens of the United States of America to invest in this kind of stuff as a lot of the new blockchain technology companies are not registered and complying with the rules and laws of the SEC. As for TokenDesk, I've never come across a warning message like some of the other sites.  Yes, they did have some beef with a journalist they had to weed out to cancel out the unwanted attention and negativity.  I see in their Milestones page is to open up a sales office in the United States by September 1, 2018.  They'll have to be in compliance with SEC rules and regulations by then.  Who knows really?  Will the Men in Black or IRS show up at my front door?  Well, we will find out soon enough:





So if I just continue to work my 9-5 rat race of a job that's perfectly okay with everyone else; except I don't want to be like the everyone else.  I want to be rich!  I want to have my own timeline!  I want to be my own boss!  I don't want to be no scrub!  Being dependent on the government for welfare and food stamps all the time is a joke.  Being dependent on your employer will be a thing of the past.  I want us to be free from the tyranny of a 9-5 that is unless you actually wanted to work and "help people".  Basically, it's called RETIREMENT.  If you're the living embodiment and creator of the rat race that's okay, but I don't plan on being enslaved by it.

Please just don't overlook things and say "WHATEVER" or "I'LL GO TO COLLEGE".  I've been there.  I've seen things.  History just repeats itself.  Finding that diamond in the rough that can change things for the better is a once in a lifetime chance.  BTC, LTC, XRP, ETH these are your new friends.  Don't wait too late to get in the game, do it now.  Ripple (XRP) is at an all time low.  The time to capture it is now!  Use bitstamp to buy it if you have to.  Do you want to be dependent on the government for the rest of your life?  You think the day you show up at the welfare line, they're going to take pity on you?

Guess what?  It's blockchain technology that's the new thing now.  
If I can just reach out into the future, grab someone, and pull them back here; I'd tell them to invest in some blockchain technology companies right now.  I'm having a hard time funding my own investments, let alone someone else's.  But if you can, go right ahead!  How do I know this?  How do you know you can trust me?  Well, I'm a homeless.  There's no reason for me to lie.  I'm not a part of the government.  I'm not a part of any bigger organization.  I don't need to make money off of this site.  I just blog, virtually for free.  I haven't received one payment before doing this.  I'm myself as much as possible.  Why would I care about my reputation or how many customers I have?  There's no need for me to lie.  I may have opinions or I'm excited about something but that's out of my own passion.  Ideally, I'd like to see money being generated but times are rough.   As far as I'm concerned, I like blogging and this is what I do.      

In the end, everyone says "I WISH", but it's really about the doing.  Either you, yourself, or someone in the family was quick witted enough to invest their time and/or money into something that would eventually save someone down the road.  Maybe your grandfather gave you $1000 worth of cryptocurrency when you were just a baby?  Guess what?  You'd be a millionaire by now.  But what about the kids who didn't have that grandfather who made moves?  You better wish your parents had some other kind of alternative investments, real estate, and/or functioning businesses.  Long story short, rich people don't get where they are because they sit on the couch, watch television, and complain.  Instead, they get where they are through hard work, repetition, doing things they don't like, learning, growing, investing, reinvesting, trying out new ideas, networking, convincing others to join in the business, hiring new recruits, etc.  It's not much different that a strategic video game.  Those who actively seek out and obtain more resources will naturally have a much easier and enjoyable time winning.  I'm not saying that money and winning is everything; but I know being poor sucks and severely limits the options you have in life.  So please, stop WISHING AND START DOING!

Thank you for dropping by and visiting!  I hope I've provided my readers with some value and insight.  Please don't take anything too seriously but with a pinch of salt.     



A New Fail - Setting Up Shopify


Well, what's wrong with trying to add Shopify into your daily arsenal of passive income?  First, Shopify is an active sport.  Believe it or not you actually have to put your time and effort to do something for it to work.  Although this may appear to just be down right easy, it isn't!  You have to do your own marketing and reach out to people for potential customers just like with any other REAL JOB!  Is it ever THAT EASY just trying to convince people to start buying random things off your website?  If you know the right people, the right products to sell, how to network, and land a sale here and there you'll be good.  But as I've discussed earlier in my blogs, I try to avoid people and just do my own thing.  If you suck with networking and people, the next best thing to do is pay for Google Adwords and/or Face advertisements.  I would not plan on paying for anything unless I was confident, passionate, and exited about the products I'm selling.  The truth is I don't want to endorse anything "Made in China".  They're cheaply made and downright abuse the employees with shitty pay but that's how they can survive.  I also don't really have a theme of my own.  Would I really like to sell exercise equipment, coffee mugs, t-shirts, and all this other random "Made in China" crap?  The simple answer to that is NO!  

As long as I don't feel like selling something I'm not into, I don't want to do it.  There's a story about how someone created a page "Owls" on Facebook; and all they do is sell crap on it with cheesy pictures and posts of random owls.  I'm just not willing to utilize my time and effort to promote something I'm not really interested in or would spend money on.  If creating a random cat page, promoting sales, and having to continually monitor and post things to get people to buy stuff is the only way to see a paycheck at the end of the week, I probably wouldn't do it just because I'm not interested and that's really not my thing to be doing.  If you are into that kind of stuff, sure; but that's not me.

As you can see, my setting up my Shopify store experience was a complete fail.  I also don't want to pay the $29.99/month.  I sure as Hell don't want to pay for Google Adwords nor Facebook advertisement to sell my shitty "Made in China" products.  Shopify is just not for me.  If I was capable of pulling it off by myself I would; but obviously I can't execute it without running into some major problems in the long run.  For example, what if my website sucks?  What if I don't have any customers?  If no body buys any of my "Made in China" shit, I'm done for.  If I continue to pay for Google Adwords and Facebook advertisement, I'll probably get a sale somewhere down the road; but I'll also end up hating myself for selling some poor kid an overpriced cat t-shirt that was inadequately made and shipped from China.  I believe I can better invest my time and money elsewhere doing something else I'm more comfortable with.

Thank you for stopping by and coming!  I hope to blog some more!

SHOPIFY - Getting Over the Learning Curve



Well everyone, it's my time to learn how to apply "Made in China" through the invention of dropshipping to the next step.  So what's the problem?  Why cant I just sit on my ass and see paychecks coming in?  "Dropshipping", "dropshipping", and "dropshipping!"  I mean what the hell is all of this shit @_@  Can I really trust China to ship stuff to my customers?  The last time I got something dropshipped from China took 1 month.  Alibaba and Oberlo are some of the biggest and most trusted dropshipping companies available.  Alibaba requires that you communicate with an actual person managing the stuff.  Because this is mostly China you're dealing with here, there is a ton of risk involved and no guarantees.  You can get your money hoodwinked real fast in a short amount of time.  You can select your products to be made and shipping from other countries, but you're going to have to rely on China for the most part as everything is just much cheaper in comparison.  In any event, I'm popping up tutorial videos and taking notes.  There's no easy way out of this.  It has a rocky learning curve at first, but I believe I can do it.

I'll continue to update my post regarding SHOPIFY, and how I'm still learning.  Hey, we all have to start somewhere. 

Thank you for reading!  I hope to keep updating soon.
