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.

COINBASE - DON'T QUIT YOUR DAY JOB!


Well, Bitcoin is surging past $10,000.  Long story short, who cares unless you bought Bitcoin at a prior date.  Lucky for me, I've been applying my basic life skills and strategies to work on a daily basis.  That's right, I have some Bitcoin.  I also invest in other digital currencies as well that aren't up and running in the market yet.  Yes, I've put my $5000 on other ICO's, other than Bitcoin.  If I just kept that initial $5000 with my 1 Bitcoin at the time, I would be seeing a bit over $10,000 here right now.  At the time, Bitcoin was rocky and no one knew what was going to happen because China just banned all forms of digital currency.  In any event, no one knew Bitcoin would rise so high in such a short amount of time!  So instead of going back to school (and going along with "GO TO COLLEGE") with that $5000, I invested it in a diversified portfolio of digital currency.  Lo and behold, my investment in the world of digital currency and the stock market is doing much better than having to "GO TO SCHOOL" everyday, feel deadbeat tired, abused and used down to a nub, which I would have already be feeling at work anyways.  The point is I did make my move, I did show initiative, I did do my homework,  I didn't have to trade an arm and a leg to get there, and I'm seeing profits come in on a daily basis.  I cannot stress how much "GO TO SCHOOL" is a real waste of my time except for the teacher and administrators who are making money off of it.  I'm not the ideal student nor will I ever be, but that's just me.  At the end of the day, all people want is to go home and see a paycheck?  Why not put that human concept on steroids?  How about you see a paycheck coming in everyday?  Why should "GO TO SCHOOL" be the paramount picture of everyday?  I'm sick and tired of doing things backwards.  I want to live in an age of limitless potential without having to sacrifice your blood, sweat, and tears to get there.  Yes, hard work is important for all of us; but I don't want to be another victim thrown under the bus just so some administrator or business owner can profit off of me as though I was some kind of slave.  I'd would only go back to school if I actually chose to instead of some kind of malevolent, evil mind trick of having to be engulfed in student debt the rest of my life.

With funds coming in from my investments and making profitable moves, I can lift my spirits high into the sky and be able to finally transcend throughout the universe without anything holding me back.  Seriously, Coinbase is awesome.  You just have to be an early adopter and investor.  If you get in the game too late, it's just going to be a lot harder.  Like a fireman or police captain, you want to be grandfathered into the system.  Being a young guy trying to get into a good company sucks.  If you're not going to be the guy who invented the company, then the best thing you can do is be an early on investor!

. . .  at the end of the day what do we really have?  Bills to pay.  I'm not going to go crazy, nuts, and/or quit my day job.  Deep down inside, everyone has a job and/or something to do that is productive, not only to themselves but to the environment around them.  Even if I become stupid rich or continue to be homeless, I know that keeping things in perspective and being humble is at the apex of the soul.  Continue to learn and challenge yourself everyday.  

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope to post again soon!

Will I Always Be Poor? The Forever Poor is You!

So am I just going to be eternally engulfed in poverty?  Will I ever become rich?  With all crazy nonsense aside, the answer to that may heavily lie on investing.  Let's take this study on the left here:  You invest $1000 in 15 Fortune 500 companies in the year 2007, 10 years ago.  At the time, you don't know which companies will succeed in the distant future.  Because they are solid, established companies, you don't expect much risk or exponential growth for that matter because they have already reached a level maturity.  In any event, you have $15,000 to spare at the time and go ahead and start investing.  For me, I did not have $15,000; but I had about the same amount in student debt.  My thinking was probably offset and mislead by the false promises of an education at the time as well.  Have I just worked a minimum wage job at a local pharmacy, like I did at Walgreen after graduation anyways, I would of had a lot more saved up by now.  Long story short, that $15,000 investment would be $99, 291!  Has my $15,000 in student loans and college blessed me with such a minimum of such a whopping number!?  No, my Rutgers University college degree has done jack shit for me!  Who the hell cares about paying for college anymore when you have the stock market?  College is great for doctors, lawyers, engineers, and anyone else who really cares enough to the point they'll drown themselves in student loans/debt, but that is not me.  I'm more of a shrewd businessman who wants to do the least amount of work possible but still reap the rewards and benefits of investing.  I repeat I don't want $15,000 in student loans and a college degree, I want that $99,291!  What don't you people understand!  That money I invested in could have been used now to go back to college and go after a degree worth something like engineering, finance, or whatever the hell I wanted!  Now, I'm screwed.  Because I have the bachelor's degree, I don't even qualify for financial aid (FASA) anymore!  Don't you people get it?  It's all about industry, serving the industry, and making money!  Are there any other alternatives?  Are there better ways of doing things?  Yes, but as far as I know this is the best option I have at my disposal in terms of surviving.  "Go to college" my ass; "Make money" yes.  I cannot go back in time and change things, but I can do is to invest in these companies as of today.  With the internet and all these exchanges online, it's real easy.  If you've read my previous posts, this is what I've been doing with my biweekly paychecks.  I would like to live in a world where "Go to college" is the answer, but that is obviously not the case as jobs are always scarce and the competition is always plentiful.  Again, I do not want to reiterate how I don't want to sacrifice an arm and a leg to achieve greatness.  I'm perfectly fine being an investor.  If all I'm good at doing is investing than that's what I'm happy to be stuck with!


Just above is what I've been doing.  It's my own Vanguard ETF portfolio.  I'm invested in a wide range of diversified ETFs that expands through multiple levels of industry and sectors.  I started out with nothing and here I am not at $33,627.21.  This is not a get rich quick schemes.  I've been working a regular job, but the only thing I do differently is invest.  Beyond diversification is being an early on investor which takes a lot of guts and risk.  I use to be one of those people who just sit in the sidelines, don't want to take the risk ,or are just plain lazy.  Whatever you do, don't just sit in the sidelines and watch.  Watching the world pass you by is not fun.  Going to school and being told what to do is an archaic way of thinking and will not serve you well.  Seriously, it's all about industry.  Whether you do or you don't, I want to be rich.  I want to have money.  I don't want to be poor.  It's that simple!  At the same time, I don't like socializing and networking with other people as people tend to be very confusing with wording, emotions, rudeness, conflicting interests, being manipulative, rules, standards, having weird indoctrination rituals, etc.  Sometimes, you really need to bring a lawyer with you to understand how crazy and detailed some of these people potentially are.  It's not fun being around people who are way too God damn serious all the time where 1 decimal point mistake can turn them into an exploding asshole.  Well, I have 4 more days left off, and I need to go out and make the best of it!       

Thank you for reading!  I hope to post some sweet Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for review!

Hoarding

When all is said and done, what are people best at?  That's right hoarding!  There seems to be no end to the grabbing, the looting, the buying/selling, Black Friday, coupons, and just all out savageness when it comes the opportunity of getting your hands on something.  I've acquired most of my stuff legally using several methods of online discounts, coupons, sales, buying in bulk discounts, ebay, Amazon, etc.  I mean it's just stuff.  What's the point of it all if it just sits on a shelf?  I do, do a lot of reselling to turn out a profit and that always has a place in my heart but what about books?  Books are a tough choice to hoard.  They take up a lot of space, and they're hard to get rid of unless it matches some college class requirement, which they just keep making new editions anyways.  I'm seriously running low on space.  I would like a functional library shelf and not just a place to hoard stuff.  I value the knowledge I can obtain through actually picking up a book and reading it.  I've never been the best at speed reading and/or comprehension, but reading is definitely one of the few keys in life actually worth every second of your time.  Unless it's for school, I don't do as much reading as I would like.  I know the benefits of reading overwhelmingly outweigh the feelings of not wanting to care or choosing to accept that "Ignorance is Bliss".  When I asked my teacher in college the very same question she responded with "Because knowledge is freedom".  I would like to spend some more time reading and make it a daily ritual.  So how do I get off my ass and start doing just that.  I mean just look at my bookshelves covered in stuff.  I obviously need a lot of improvement on bookshelf aesthetics and functionality.  Cutting out the nonessential will definitely help my game reading more often and frequently.

What am I do with the books I don't need?  You know the books I just grabbed because the library was getting rid of their old stock.  Some books are just outdated and unreliable in today's times.  I mean who the hell needs to learn about DOS from the 90's?  This is just excessive information that I don't need.  A lot of these books just don't provide any value to me anymore.  Some of these oldies can't even be sold, because it's that bad nor do I want to take the time and hold them for the next buyer (whenever that'll be).  If limited space wasn't an issue, I'd keep them all; but like so many people space is very limited!  If I can't sell them, I'll just leave a load of them at the local public library.  There's no need for me to keep an excessive amount of reading material at home just for the sole purpose of hoarding!  Because I care and that is why I'm going to rearrange and make my bookshelf as functional and spiffy as possible.  I hope to post an update picture of my bookshelf.

Thank you for stopping by and reading!  Come back soon!     

   

My 5 Day Week Off

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my show.  I just happen to have the whole week off!  It's a great and fabulous time.  Of all seriousness, what did I do today?  It's already 1:30PM in the afternoon  and all I've done is roll out of the bed, turned on the computer, browsed through the internet, read some of my emails, watched a youtube video about being frugal and being financially savvy, and now I'm here blogging.  Is this not enough?  Did I not get tons of sleep like I wanted to?  Did I not arrive on the information highway out of my bed in a matter of seconds!?  Why does it seem like it's never enough?  At the moment, I do not wish to care about what anyone else thinks about me, my schedule, or how I do things.  This is a time to get to really know myself.  Once again, I'm met by a man in the mirror who just doesn't seem to want to care about anything unless it's about making money and/or doing something that'll promote health.  I guess that's really my thing.  If I just so happened to have a crazy, high-tech invention in my hands and at my disposal, what would I do with it?  Would I use it for myself?  Would I help father my own family and start an entire new culture   The simplest answer would be to charge people money for it and reap the profit off of it.  In short, I would be blind sided by the true value of my crazy, high-tech invention and just try to make money off of it by selling it to the highest bidder.  I'm not much different than the government selling technology off to lesser countries in exchange for an equal amount of goods, services, and/or treaties.  We all have an internalization of a system of trade and meeting some kind of quota and/or equilibrium.  Whether it's time, cash, digital currency, stocks, bonds, food, animals, people, blood, body parts, plants, medicine, technology, service, robots, computers, or God else knows what's out there, we can all relate to TRADE. 

With my time off of work, what do I do?  Well, here I am blogging.  I think about stuff, and I write it down.  Does the stuff I think about or dream ever have any value or may interest others?  I maybe operating on a paradigm of a service-to-self model.  What I do, think, or dream about maybe all due to selfish reasons, but at the same time maybe information/knowledge that can be shared with others.  It's not easy to find balance between the two.  At one end, you need to survive and at the other end there always seems to be "other people" involved.  "There is no I in team" as they say.  The collective consciousness of all sentient may actually be a thing, but at the same time human beings are far from accessing its true potential.  We all don't see eye-to-eye with each other.  We all seem to want our own independence, living space, and stuff.  As long as we remain heavily independent from each other, we'll never seem to achieve a sense of unity under the idea of collective consciousness.  But at the same time, this is where it gets into a more metaphysical and spiritual matter as we are more connected than we seem to be aware of.  Dolphins are a perfect example how they are able to travel and communicate with each other in packs.  Without the use of speech, electronics, and/or technology; they are able to send and receive signals from each other and travel in unison.  Somehow, they are always connected to each other for better/worse.  But I'm not a dolphin; nor do I feel much sense of a connection to this intangible being of collective consciousness.

Without being hooked up with the collective consciousness, we, as humans, are basically screwed.  Where would we conceptualize new ideas from?  Where would our inspiration come from?  Where would our creativity come from?  How'd we dream?  All of this lies deep in the pituitary gland and/or intuition.  It's all mental.  Where would I be without the access to the internet?  Likewise, the pituitary gland or the master gland maybe the culprit behind all this mysticism.  Long story short, I spend a lot of time sleeping.  Why would anyone be sleeping for 12 hours if they could be awake and making money?  Yes, sleep is for taking care of biological needs and needed for the building blocks of cells, but there's also more to it.  Because that's when I actually dream!  When I dream, my thoughts and my body become lucid.  I am able to have outer body experiences without have to be tied down to this Earth.  With the ability to fly and astral travel to different places in space, I've seen and experienced some pretty wild rides!  Who cares about money if I'm having an out of this world experience! 

So what weird stuff have I've seen in my dreams?  Do you really want to know?  It's not for the faint of heart nor do I expect anyone to believe me.  To my best abilities, I will describe what I've been dreaming about and experiencing.  Aside for the normal romance and sexual desires, sometimes I just happen to appear on off world planets.  I don't know where I am, nor do I seem to be bothered by it, but I just show up and go along with the story.  Obviously, I have had many, many different dreams and experiences, but I'll narrow it down to the most interesting and noteworthy ones.  For one, I encountered an experience with a grey alien.  Towards the end of my sleep, all of the sudden I "awoke" in my sleepy somber and began to rip off something shielding my head, the face of some strange looking alien (grey-purple) trying to manipulate and intentionally mind control me.  At the time, it felt so real in my dream that I actually woke up!  The other dream I had, I just happened to encounter a green reptilian humanoid about the size of a midget (3 feet) in a purple robe or something run in/out of some kind of library room I was in filled with several cyborgs (fat, bald human with body attached to a floating, golden hover chair).  It was surprising to see a reptilian hominid for the first time as well as the cyborgs!  I have no idea how my mind would even dream of something like that unless there was some actual truth behind it. 

Years ago in another dream I had, I was lying peacefully on a hill in a beautiful planet surrounded by dark, glowing purple.  The whole theme of the planet was purple, purple sky, purple, grass, the leaves on the trees were purple, everything was just a hue of purple.  It was beautiful!

Before all these strange dreams and experiences began happening, I had a hallucination/dream/vision/whatever you want to call.  The important thing is "I saw" three slide shows.  I could never forget what I experienced, but it was weird.  I'm not sure if it was something internal going on with an imbalance of my brain chemistry or I just so happened had telepathic communication going on with some unknown entity from outer space.  This kind of thing just doesn't happen to everyone nor do I recommend such a thing to anyone.  In any event, the 3 visions I saw went as followed:  #1 A young girl committed suicide cutting herself with a knife; #2 An atomic bomb going off (I could see the mushroom cloud from afar just exploding like it was live); #3 The printing and the endless continuation of the printing of money (black and white).  I never tell anyone this story, because IT HAS GOTTEN ME INTO TROUBLE.  I do not want to reveal anymore details but people do get SERIOUS about this kind of stuff and is considered "WORK".  I'll end it at.

So if I had any kind of super power or anything notable, I'd have a ton of money by now (which I don't).  Therefore, it's all just a bunch of mumbo jumbo.  Have I had any psychic powers or anything even remotely significant, I would have been an early invester in Google, Apple, Bitcoin, Tesla, Alibaba, etc.  Hell, I would have even picked a different college major!  Now it's too late!  So who cares!?  I have the whole week off.  I'm here to enjoy whatever little time I have before I have to actually go back to work! 

Thank you for dropping by!  I hope to see more of you and to keep blogging!
