I’m glad I filtered out all these dubious programs out there and discovered Wealthy Affiliate. I’m just baffled how people are so easily lured into all these scams and these people are actually making pretty good profits. I had some people that came my way to make me join their programs as well, but I always felt like if they’re promotion is too aggressive, I found it shady.

Thank you, Egon for your review of another MOBE scam called My Millionaire Mentor! I really do appreciate your honest, clear informational opinion. I have been looking at starting an online business for a few months now. I did try a couple of them years ago but they were about products and I couldn’t get enough traffic to them.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how this was the year you had to quit your job. I gave the reasons why. It wasn’t a gung-ho “you have to be an entrepreneur” article. It was more: bad shit is happening in the corporate world and bit by bit you’re going to feel the urge to quit.
