It’s Selfish To Be Poor In The Information Age

selfish to be poor

I ran across this great “meme” the other day …
… and it really hit me like a ton of bricks.

It’s absolutely SELFISH to be POOR

when all I have to do is apply myself
online and find a legitimate way to
generate an income!

What an epiphany, huh?  🙂

Some may take great offense to this.

In fact, I did years ago because I heard
this at a network marketing event because
I was struggling.

I didn’t have any answers at age 24 other
than, “go get a higher paying job.”

(That was in 1994.  I didn’t even have an
America Online account yet!  LOL)

However, when I was introduced to the
wonderful world of network marketing,
my mind became wide open to the …


It was only recently I ran across this
concept and recalled I’d actually heard
it 20 years ago!  🙂

So let’s dive in …

If your “paycheck” is just paying for food
and shelter, there’s no room for economic

For being creative enough to innovate,
tithe, give back, pay it forward, etc.

Which makes you a modern day slave.


For years, I was learning to be “creative”
at how to live on less money (at times in
my 20’s and 30’s).

I actually learned that mindset from being
a “broke” college student. Like it was a
badge of “courage.”

More like stupidity, right?

In the land of “opportunity.”


The most SELFISH thing one can do is
choose to remain broke.

Read that again.

==> The most SELFISH thing one can
do is choose to remain broke.

That may come across as offensive to some.

Here’s the truth.

Getting YOUR bills, family, health,
money, etc. handled …

Allows to you commit more creative time
and effort toward solving OTHER’S problems …

And being of $ERVICE to society.

(You may want to let that sink in
for a few minutes!)

I got so far off track at times.

Especially in my 20’s when I was
“grinding” at low-paying jobs.

Fortunately, I found my way back. 

By plugging into mentors having
the RESULTS I wanted to have.

Who could “show me the way”
from Point A to Point B.

I say this often …

EVERY ONE here on social media
(you included!) can solve his/her personal
economic crises within 90 days if s/he’ll
just stop playing games and learn how to be
of $ervice and value via this incredible
platform of social media!

So … are you ready to give up economic
slavery and choose economic freedom


You’re already in the right place …

1) You have access to the internet!
2) You’re able to read this article
3) Add desire and hustle …

And you’re ready for success!!

The Middle Class Is Shrinking. But You Don’t Have To …

image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

Have you “heard the news?”

Here in the United States, for as long as I can remember, the so-called “middle class” has been the “majority” of our population.

“Most” people weren’t “rich” or “poor” .  In 1971, 61% were “middle class”.

Middle Class Income

However, the trends have been moving people either “up” or “down” lately.

And today, for the first time, the “middle class” touched BELOW 50%!

In the land of OPPORTUNITY … that’s a GOOD thing, right?

That’s the topic of today’s VIDEO …

Melissa and I learned years ago there’d NEVER be an opportunity for us to:

— Live where we love
— Sleep ’til our eyes opened each morning
— Had quality time with the kids each day
— And each other  🙂

If we had settled for going off to work each day in two separate cars to two separate jobs, we probably would have kept sliding down the “middle class” category as the years went by.

In today’s world, jobs actually COST you lots and lots of money.

I actually discussed this on a previous blog post (it’s stunning!)

Thanks again for “tuning in” today!

Final question for you …

“Should the United States tax the rich and give more to the poor in order to ‘bring back’ the middle class?”

I’ll look forward to reading your comments below!

Making Family Memories – Part 2 of 3

image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

Last week, Melissa and I had the privilege of having extended
quality time with her sister’s side of the family.

Here’s a fun photo of all of us making a “dinosaur” face …

They live in Connecticut.  We live in Florida.

(Meeting at Disney World sure is convenient!)

There are three generations of Gibbs and Burkes …

And two generations of Knechts!!

Here’s a picture that turns out to be one of my favorites:

Melissa along with her (great) great nieces: Aubrey & Ella.

I’ve watched Melissa develop a wonderful relationship
with those girls (as well as with another “favorite” niece’s
girls!) …

Because she’s had the TIME to get to know them!

That wouldn’t happen if we weren’t privileged to have
a home business and be able to set our schedules.

One of Ella’s best memories is having her Aunt Melissa
there after school to pick her up recently …

(at 3PM in the afternoon, when most people are at work!)

Oh, by the way, if you choose to bring your family
to Disney for a few days in a row, be ready to log
some miles!

On our three days, I logged: 6.05 + 6.62 + 8.95 =

==> 21.67 miles!!!

(Whoops!  I did the math incorrect on the graphic).

But, getting back to the numbers …

Yes, on a 4-day visit, it can actually qualify you
and your family as a “marathon” family!

However, if you’re not being “present” with your
family before a trip like this …

It may actually FEEL like a marathon!!!

And THAT my friend, is the million dollar secret.

TIME freedom allows us to have QUALITY time
with our loved ones …

And more importantly …

How to truly ENJOY these kind of moments!

No family is perfect.

There were a couple of kid “meltdowns” …

And having 9 adults together can make
decision making a bit fascinating …

But, overall, it really was an incredible few days!

Thanks so much to: David, Melody, Don, Carol, 
Justin, Jamie, Corrin, Ella, Aubrey (and of course
to Melissa and Tanner!) for a really fun fun fun
3 days!!   🙂

Making Family Memories – Part 1 of 3

image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

My wife Melissa and I made a decision 18 years ago
that we’d be full-time parents to our kids.

We’d be home with them on a daily basis.

Not an easy decision to make because we knew
we’d have to work for ourselves.

Back in early 1998, working “online” was a bit
of a novelty …

But today in 2016, there’s no shortage of ways
to create an online income.

Which brings me to our current situation …

Our  15-year-old son … Tanner!

He’s never known a day where Mom and Dad
have had to leave the house looking for work.

He’s actually a “virtual” school student
(meaning he, too, “works” from home).

We recently created a series of blog posts on
“Why Virtual School” which you can see here.

So … getting back to today!

I realized how blessed I am to really KNOW
Tanner (and my wife, Melissa, for that matter!)

We checked into Saratoga Springs Resort
here at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

(Here’s a video of our “sweet” suite!)

It’s only 112 miles door-to-door from our
home in Sarasota, FL.

(Another decision from having a virtual
business … living where you love!)

Oh … I got off track again!

Getting back to today …

I realized while walking around the
Magic Kingdom (and then the evening
in Disney Springs) …

Just how much fun the three of us had
by being together, telling jokes, inspiring
each other, and remembering all of the
great moments we’ve had long-term
together in our lives.

And … taking in a great sunset halfway
between the Magic Kingdom and Polynesian
Village Resort!  🙂

It’s EXACTLY what Melissa and I saw for
our family when we made the decision
18 years ago that’d be home with our kids
and be able to see them grow up.

It’s especially apparent here in Walt Disney
World, where we see so many families, and
also continue to see the inspiring messages
from Walt Disney himself …

That EVERY day is a GIFT!

May today be the day YOU, too, decide to
be the primary influence in the upbringing
of your kids/grandkids.

And/or …

To start pursing YOUR passions in life.

Our community of entrepreneurs can
assist you in identifying what that is
and show you a path of how to get from
Point “A” (no clue) to “B” (on the path

Adult Coloring Books – The New Zen Craze

good vibes adult coloring book
image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

I was a bit dubious when it was first suggested to me that I get some adult coloring books. (Thanks Julia Treat!)  I kind of passed it off at first and then started to see articles and ads for them EVERYWHERE! I was amazed at how I had no knowledge of them and then saw ads and articles for them wherever I looked.  I took it as a (second) sign from the Universe and ordered some.

I have found it to be one of the most relaxing, absorbing and meditative practices I’ve ever engaged in.  

The first ones that I learned about were those with Mandalas.

According to Wikipedia, a Mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

I hopped on Amazon (my favorite place to shop) and got two books. (Scroll each link and click to see more on Amazon.)

I scrounged all my kids’ colored pencils and sharpened them all and started with them.  I like the softer, creamy colored pencils.  My first couple of creations were completed with various brands of them.
(Click on the pictures to see them larger.)

I soon got guidance from several people to try gel pens… then my coloring world really opened up!  This is the first set I got – and they are great! So easy on your hands for long coloring sessions. (I should mention here, this is very addicting!) 

Here’s my first Mandala with the gel pens:

With the pens, I also got more books. (I was on a roll!)

And here are some of my other creations so far.

So as I write this, I’m on a plane headed back home after a lot of great travel to Miami and Phoenix.  I’m looking forward to having some time to reacclimate and zen out with some cuddle time with my rescue puppy, Sashi (interestingly – a Sanskrit name I chose which means Moon) and some coloring time. Bliss…
