well yesterday i was on youtube when this wonderful advertisement came up with the ever so helpful harv who wrote secrets of the millionaire mind (which i havent read) but he's been around enough years i thought i'd be able to trust him, so he says "do you know the top mistakes that are keeping you from prospering right now well i have a free webinar that will teach you the 6 key steps that will allow you to prosper and do well in real life click the link below" so i was like wow that's really nice, this already wealthy man is taking time out of his life to help us out for free, should of figured then it was to good to be true but of course i didnt.

so i clicked on the link they wanted my email (OF COURSE) then after i entered that, his very nice looking son came on so i already felt good starting out, saying thank you so much for registering i wanna thank you on behalf of my father then blah blah blah for another period of time, then the main harv guy came on he looks you in the eye and said " yeah i read every book out there on money, none of it worked for me, i grew up poor worked 12 different jobs and then tryed 12 different businesses none of them lasted, so tomorrow tune in and i'll share my secrets of success" so i got happy and set my google calender for the time of the webinar, ended up being so excited i couldnt sleep was up past 1 am this morning afraid id sleep in and miss it which luckily i didnt.

today the class starts, he says "welcome, so glad you could make it, then goes on detailing for 20 minutes about how broke he was, never had money, always bumming a ride, business failures, moving back in with his family, one day as he and his family were playing cards one of his dad's wealthy friends over heard how he was struggling financially then told him advice he'd never forget, "if you're not doing as well as you would currently like, that simply means there is something you don't know" i kinda liked that because it resonated with me

then the rich friend told harv, why dont you spend the next 6 months studying rich business owners, so harv agreed, then he said just out of pure luck he charged $2,000 to his credit cards and earned well over $500,000,000 following these principles, that made my ears purk up, so he says there are 6 steps to the success i've had, 1. no limit to income, when you work a job you are being paid for your time, well there are only 24 hours a day so since your time is limited your income is limited (i totally agree) jobs and wealth don't go together (again i totally agree)
if you want to be successful the only way to do that is to own your own business ( i'm starting to think maybe this guy is fast lane so i'm really enjoying it)

step 2. i ran 4 businesses at once, i was in one then a friend had jewelry so i thought id sell that, then a friend had hats so i got in the hat business, then 2 other friends had 2 other things and i sold those to, i figured if i had more than one business id be safer, well i went from doing fairly well to broke and i was trying to figure it out, then i thought well it takes alot of energy to get anything going, especially in the beginning, most of the rockets fuel is burned just from lift off so if you want to be successful only stick to one thing focus focus focus, (i'm like yeah that makes sense) then he says " you hear alot about multiple streams of income why would you want that when you have to work multiple times as hard" ( i thought that is true...)

step 3. do what you love, if you want to be successful you have to be passionate about it, i started my own gym not because i thought id make alot of money out of it but because it was a hobbie i enjoyed (this is where i thought of mj and was like darn i wasted all that time on just another guru, so i dont know if i messed up by not listening to the rest but i am kinda disapointed to say the least

You seem to be focusing on mindset a lot. Why don't you just jump in and try to do something instead of only focusing on mindset and complaining. You are not going to become wealthy in 1 day with 1 idea. It's a process. Have you started the process?

Start hustling. Try to make $1000 in the next few weeks. Use that money to fund something else

Start learning how to use punctuation and write full complete sentences.

Then take a skill you have and use it to make money...

wow tanisha, great story i red it from start to finish and i see where you coming from, i too read the secrets of the millionaire mind its a great book to start with it can relly help you with your mindset but maybe you just need to get a job first harv had like 12 jobs and hes super successful so just get out there and fail and one day with enough failures youll have enough lessons and then youll be a success it just takes repetition, its great that you are learning about mindsets but i dont think you have enough life experiences so you need to go out there and just try literally anything business related ok

What are you even doing here? All of your posts are some mumbo jumbo and as I saw you were banned twice.

Go start a business or learn something and stop trying to be "wise" in your posts and writing about tax, cars, money, phones and all the other crap.

I hate it when my Shift key breaks and I’m stuck with caps lock only :clench:
You are not the only one with this issue. Go look up every post by Dan Pena.

Reading everything in caps lock was like trying to wolf down marble cake without saliva to lubricate the process.:rofl:

THAT is ACTUALLY a skill that can make money.

Transcription, or Microsoft Office paperwork.

I'm landing a gig now on Upwork for something like that hahaha.:inpain:

If you read @Tanishatheangel posts as if she's an advanced AI that is being trained by Google DeepMind to scour all of the data on this forum and use it to participate as a fully sentient human, then it all makes sense and you look forward to her future posts to see the progress.

Version 2.0 incorporates punctuation, capitalization, etc.

V3.0 starts developing its own language and they shut it down... hopefully.

So, basically, she is Leslie from South Park?
