Why I’m not Bloggin for Money

Honesty is the Best Policy. But best policies are rarely followed.

For example, take hospital hand washing. You’d think that doctors, nurses, hospital staff (and yes, pharmacists too 😉 ) know to wash their hands every time they enter a room or after seeing a patient.

You think wrong!

Now that I’ve possibly scared my OCD readers, I want to move to a candid conversation.

I’m not blogging to be famous. I’m not blogging for attention. I’m not blogging for money.

My first post explains my “why.” In short, my motivation for this is to start my dreams, start a podcast, and become an online entrepreneur.

Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.

I want to play this game. I believe that money is a sign of appreciation and value. No one just gives a hundred dollar bill away, not without a specific purpose. I give my internet provider every month $25 because I value the opportunities on the interweb. Because I value these opportunities, I’m willing to give $25 of my hard earned cash to the provider.

You can play this idea for just about every transaction.

However, I will become an affiliate for programs that I enjoy. Why? Because I believe in what I recommend. To be compensated for my recommendation is a compliment that I won’t turn down.

That said, I want this to be clear, I’m not after your money. I’m after your dreams…wait (that’s creepy)… My goal is for you to take action and master life.

I will try to state whether a link is an affiliate link.

I’m not a salesman. I tried once, and failed miserably.
