I've Just Been Busy

Hi All

Yes, it's absolutely true that I have had a noticeable absence in the posting of ecurrency aribtrage but this is something all of you will learn if you get into a business on the Internet.

Online Internet marketing is not a 1 or 2 dimensional business ... it's very multi-dimensional and if you get started with ecurrency arbitrage, review other businesses, or other avenues online, you'll soon discover that there are many paths you can take.

In fact, the big hazard with the Internet is that there are actually too many dimensions to follow and at times it can feel like the "box of cash" that contestants stand in and then try to grab the cash as it swirls around in the air.

Ecurrency Arbitrage has been great to me and I'll be able to make money using the exact techniques, tools and strategies for the rest of my foreseeable life. You need to understand that the program is much more than a simple step 1, step 2, step 3 and ....oops, now it's out dated and will no longer work.

While it I most definitely is a step by step program that guides you by the hand, it's also not a 1 trick pony.

So while I started with eCurency Arbitrage, it was much more than a singular business for me, it was a business and my launching pad into a whole new world.

Now I know people, I partner with people, I do joint ventures with people short, I'm "one of them" ...I'm one of the success stories you read about online.

Of course the question is, could I have made it without ecurrency arbitrage? The answer is a definite YES. But I needed to have something to get me going, something that worked, something got me into the proverbial game or nobody would ever take me seriously.

You cannot do a "joint venture" with a "guru" if you don't have a "venture" ...get it?

So my goal is to get back into sharing my knowledge and experiences with you, but this blog is morphing into more than ecurrency arbitrage exclusively. Maybe I should start a new blog but this one has been my "home" for quite awhile and just feels comfortable to me.

So today I simply need to mention that not all things worked for me and I wasted a lot of money trying a lot of things. Stupidly, I failed to really research all my moves as I ventured out beyond my comfort zone.

The first thing I discovered is that seaching for a product and then adding "review" after the name can be invaluable.

For example, if you go to Google and type in 1shoppingcart review, like I failed to do, you will quickly discover that using 1shoppingcart online software for your business will cost you $34 every time you need to make a support call ....OUCH!

Simple steps to avoiding mistakes - but they're only simple once you know them.

These are the types of topics I'll be covering from here on out.

Why I Chose eCurrency Arbitrage

eCurrency Arbitrage is only 1 of a thousand different online businesses so it's no surprise that I get this question all the time:

"How did you know ecurrency arbitrage worked"?

"What other programs did you try before ecurrency arbitrage"?

"I was scammed before, is ecurrency arbitrage a scam too"?

"Why did you choose ecurrency arbitrage"?

... etc, etc, etc.

These are all legitimate questions and I can tell by the volume of them that this has got to be one of the hottest topics out there.

It's actually a little like getting married it seems, "How do I know he's the one", "how do I know it'll last and he'll be there for me after we're married" ...sounds just like my girlfriends - LOL.

So let me start out and tell you honestly that when I plunked down my cash for the ecurrency arbitrage tutorial course, I had no idea if it really worked or not. I had no idea if Paul Jenkins really showed up for the Wednesday training calls himself of if he sent a 1st level minion in his place.

In fact, I would say that I was completely naive in my whole selection process but that could be exactly what saved me from getting scammed.

You have to understand that I'm no internet "guru". But what I did do was explore the whole thing from what I consider a "common sense" point of view.

I knew that since I was just starting out that I would need a lot of support.

I knew I would need something that was easy to follow and laid out in a format that a "non-techie" could follow. I mean, I'm not a moron. I know how to use a computer; I just don't know how to build a computer.

So the first thing I did was eliminate everything that did not have a LIVE PERSON that I could call and speak with before I signed on the dotted line.

Then I looked for a system that would be easy to follow. I know there's plenty of really good e-book courses out there, that are actually cheaper, but I also knew that it would be a heck of a lot easier to follow step-by-step videos.

I wasn't looking for the "cheapest", I was looking for the "best investment"!

But the thing that pushed me over the edge, the 1 thing that convinced me that ecurrency arbitrage was going to be a real online business was this.

When I was on the phone speaking to one of their sales people, I asked a question they did not know the answer to and they put me on hold. About 45 seconds later, Paul Jenkins joined the call and answered my question and then continued to speak with me for another 8 or 9 minutes until I was done asking questions.

Then I knew I was done looking!

I hung up the phone and ordered the program that day and the rest as they say is history.

Since then, I've discovered that there are quite a number of really great programs and quite a number of true scams. eCurrency Arbitrage is a good reliable program that I'm confident will still be working many years from now since the concepts have been working for many years to date.

Is it right for you? I really don't know ...start calling around and see how they all compare ... then you decide what's right for you.

Remember, if you can't reach anyone before you join, how will you reach anyone after they have your money?



P.S. By the way, Paul Jenkins does do the live training calls himself. He stays on the line until every single person has their questions answered, even if it goes over the 2 hour time allotment.

Smells Like Fall ...Smells Like Money

The days are still hot, but the nights and mornings are changing.

That familiar smell of Fall is definitely in the air if you get up early enough to enjoy it. I'm one of those "weird" people that naturally wake up early.

Sitting on my deck with a good cup of Hazelnut coffee with real cream and watching the sun go from being just a slit to a full fire ball is something I can't get enough of.

During my college days, if I wasn't the one going out at night, it wasn't uncommon for me to be waking up and watching the hard core stragglers as they finally made it home (usually walking a little crooked LOL).

If the changing season had nothing to do with ecurrency arbitrage, I would post this on Twitter as just another useless musing (if I actually ever used my Twitter account that is), but there really is a point here. I'm not going to tell you about the ecurrency arbitrage videos, or answer the perpetual question, "is ecurrency arbitrage a scam"?

No, the point here is the same that I made at the start of summer.

If you recall, at the start of summer, I was very frustrated because my business flat-lined. Even though I had progressed and worked more set ups, I was still doing nothing but treading water instead of watching my ecurrency arbitrage business revenue increase.

But ahh... the sweet smell of Fall is double sweet now that I have an internet business. Because the same seasonal factors that caused me to flat-line are now working in reverse.

My ecurrency arbitrage business revenue is now turning up even though I've done little since July to give it a boost. The same seasonal affect is now working in my favor instead of against me.

mmmm more reason to love Fall.

Mom Quit - Hooked on Bingo

I have to admit I thought it was inevitable. It's not like she ever needed the money and frankly, running a business, any business, can be a little boring at times.

I mean, ecurrency arbitrage isn't like becoming a race car driver, fashion model, or winning American Idol... it's a business. And like any real business, it takes some time and it takes some effort.

I was pretty shocked when Mom started doing the business anyhow. I really think she did it just to give me the old "I told you so ...ecurrency arbitrage scam ...ha, Mom's right".

But it never turned out that way. She started making money instead and I think she was thrilled to be able to do it but almost disappointed because she couldn't tell me to go get a new job - LOL.

So Mom's back to Bingo, much more exciting than a business, you never jump up from your desk and yell "ecurrency arbitrage" ...well, I guess you could since you're at home and nobody would see ... but it still seems like it would be a little weird to me.

eCurrency Arbitrage Business Analogy

Explaining exactly what ecurrency arbitrage is a bit of challenge.

I still get the question; "is ecurrency arbitrage a scam"? That one is pretty obvious. My answer: no, ecurrency arbitrage is not a scam.

It's harder to explain what ecurrency arbitrage is and how it works but I was at the grocery store when it all came to me in a flash of fast food brilliance.

I was chewing on a piece of "free sample" pizza when it struck me. eCurrency Arbitrage is just like the guy handing out free pizza.

Honest ... let me explain.

When the free sample man is handing out free pizza, he's actually getting paid simply for giving things away. So he's happy.

And the customer receiving the free pizza slice is happy because they just got the free pizza.

Even the pizza company is happy because some of those people getting the free pizza are going to love the taste of the pizza and buy a few that day and probably be a pizza customer for a very long time (I didn't like it though ...too dry for me).

And this is the way it is with ecurrency arbitrage.

I mean, you're not standing in a grocery store, and you're not handing out pizza slices but the concepts are still the same.

Now you can easily see that the guy handing out free samples has a much easier time getting people to accept the pizza slice than if he were standing in the same spot trying to sell the pizzas.
Because it's always harder to sell something ...both in the store and on the internet.

With ecurrency arbitrage, you're also not selling anything ... so this burden is gone. The arbitrage companies you deal with are happy to pay you because they eventually are making money from your efforts.

So in all, everyone comes out ahead and everyone is happy when that happens. This is why ecurrency arbitrage is so much easier than trying to hawk products to people and compete with all the others doing the same thing.

There's more to explain of course, this is simply an analogy. Maybe I need to go for ice-cream ...maybe that'll inspire more clarity ...hmmm, seems like it's worth a try.

I Am Now A "Warrior"

One really neat side affect of writing this blog has been how much I've learned about running a website.

Now I realize that this little blog isn't nearly as tough as running a full blown website, with all the html coding etc., but there's still a lot to be learned.

For example, I turned on the WebMaster Tools (ominous music plays in the background as the MASTER enters the room ...LOL) which shows me how many people come to my blog and most interestingly what they typed into Google to find my blog.

One of the sources of regular visitors to my blog was from a popular internet marketing forum called the Warrior Forum. So after checking it out, I decided to join their forum to see what I could learn.

Now here's the scary part, even though I just started out a few months back, I'm already considered a "veteran" by the forum standards.

There are so many people out there looking for a side business, or full time business, and it's incredible how many are just floundering around and bouncing from one fad to the next. And from what I can tell, very few ever make a penny.

On one hand I feel pretty fortunate to actually have achieved some success but on the other hand I now wonder why all these other folks are struggling so much ... because it makes me wonder if I was just lucky.

Of course, I did spend a couple of hours on the forum already so maybe it's more of a curse than an advantage to know about the Warrior Forum ...maybe that's why so many of them are struggling because they just can't get their head straight and get started on one internet business opportunity.

Just my rambling thoughts for the day...



PS. Of course, now that I'm a web MASTER and a WARRIOR, I've suddenly got this urge to take huge bites of grease dripping, fatty meat, wipe my mouth with the back of my hand and quaff down a stein of rot gut liquor.

Level 3 eCurrency Arbitrage Explanation

As I mentioned awhile back, I've moved up to the Level 3 portion of the ecurrency arbitrage video system.

Explaining how level 3 works is a little tricky so let me use an analogy that I think will help.

Now even though ecurrency arbitrage is NOT stock trading, I think using a stock market anaology will help me explain this level since most people understand the stock market a lot better than ecurrency arbitrage.

So the first thing that you need to understand is that moving from one level to the next level does not mean you're doing arbitrage or not doing arbitrage, it just means that you're doing ecurrency arbitrage in a different way.

It compares to the stock market as follows: imagine that you want to participate in the stock market. Trading stocks is not a "1 option" venture as you can do many things in the stock market.

As a beginner in the stock market, you may choose to simply buy an S&P 500 index fund and not worry about getting any better returns than the overall market in general. But maybe you're more aggressive and you want to pick stocks ...but not pick stocks.

Instead, you might take the effort to select a mutual fund that shares your investment philosophy and even though you're not picking the individual stocks, you're still picking a mutual fund that picks stocks for you. You can carry this out to stock market sectors, or geographic investments, etc.

Moving up the food chain further, you may choose to pick each of your stocks individually and count on nothing other than your personal knowledge of the industries you're trading. Or maybe you crave immediate gratification and want to Day Trade to put money in the bank daily (or lose money daily which is more often the case).

Ah ...but where's the leverage in all this? How about trading stock options, now you're really hanging it all out there, taking the big risks.

Of course, you can do all of these stock trading techniques. You can do them 1 at a time to suit your lifestyle / investment style, or you can do them all at once, or a portion that you mix and match's really 100% up to you to decide how you want to control it all.

But no matter what you choose the end of the day, you're still doing nothing more than trading stocks. It's just a matter of how you choose to trade stocks. You're not stopping your trading to invest in real estate or commodities, you're simply trading stocks but with different methods.

And that's the way the different levels work in Paul Jenkins ecurrency arbitrage system. No matter what level you choose, you're still just doing ecurrency arbitrage but you're doing it in different ways.

One method does not replace the other as you'll do them all, or some, or just one, or some combination as you choose.

In my next posts, I'll start getting into more specifics. There's still a LOT that I don't know and I have to watch a few more of the ecurrency arbitrage videos for this section.
