She is my Love, but don’t take her as for Granted.
It started from our childhood. We loved each other from then when we even didn’t heard about the word LOVE.
Since we were from two different places which are very distant from each other. So We used to get together during any vacation like summer vacation, puja vacation and in the EIDs because at that time our two families used to visit our grand perent’s house. So mine and her grand parents were neighbors.
When we used to meet during that time (for few days), we used to play various games, we used to visit places together etc etc. Since we were young (i.e before 6th standard) nobody stopped us, there was no barrier between us.
Interesting thing was one of her Aunt used to tease us both that we were in love and blah blah. But we didn’t understand at that time.
We loved that Aunt so much because she used to tell us stories and at that time we both listened to her stories. Our Aunt and her stories made us spent time together in the evening and during the daytime we used to play games together.
She(my love) used to tell her stories and things like she used to play Bia-Bia i.e a play of Marriage with her friends at her place (where her parents stay). She described every details about how she dresses and grooms up for the marriage and becomes wife of someone of her friends. And nature taught me how to be Jealous at that very young age. I used to become very jealous and only our Aunt used to understand it at that time.
AND THE 1ST TRAGEDY HAPPENED
After the 6 th standard’s summer vacation we never met again until our matriculation. My family stopped visiting Grand pa’s place during Eids. We started visiting Grand pa’s place only in Summer Vacations. And may be it was Allah’s(GOD’S) wish to keep us away for a long period because whenever in the summer I visited there she was not there.
4-5 YEARS PASSED
In between these years I realized what love is, how I missed her and so so. But that age was teaching me the differences between man and woman. I realized and learnt so many things. And in 8th standard I had a crush on my friend and I approached her but because of differentiation in our religion it stopped there.
I met her again
After 5 years we met again at our Grand pa’s house. After Matric exam we spent few days there. She was different, growned up, she was beautiful and more matured than me.But the peoples had started seeing us differently. Because we were not that child anymore. Now everyone was keeping an eye on us.
I didn’t miss that chance
We talked each other that means played message message so much and then a time came I approached her. She took almost a month and then accepted me. I was in top of the world.
BUT IT WAS A LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP
I moved to hostel and I even didn’t had a phone with me. I was missing her so badly and I used to weep silently because in that hostel it was very difficult to adjust. Faced Racism for the first time. It was difficult to cope with my alcoholic roommate.
I left that hostel and managed to get a phone. We again connected and used to message her a lot and call at least for 5-20 minutes a day. Life was good though there’s no chance to meet or see each other.
2nd Tragedy happened.
All of a sudden before 1 month to TEST EXAM of HS 2nd year she broke up with me saying it is time to study and she told there’s no future between us because our parents will never agree with our relationship. She told that, it will be better to forget her and loving her will be only a waste of time because she don’t want that relation by upsetting her parents. She changed her number and never even realized that how I was doing.
I was broken. I got mad at me, I asked myself, what was my fault? I was in depression.
Then I found a way, which is called negative motivation. I started believing it was not love from her side. She just passed time with me. I started believing Girls are betrayers. No one should believe a girl. I cursed her and promised that I’ll never love again.
I moved to Guwahati.
After HS FINAL examination I moved to Guwahati for coaching classes on CONCEPT EDUCATIONS DIGHALIPUKHURI. Those are the days that changed me completely. I met two or more friends who were broken like me. And one of my friends story was like his girlfriend cleared CEE entrance and got seat in MEDICAL COLLEGE. So according to her my friend who didn’t cleared CEE was a looser. She said her parents will never accept my friend as her husband.
That story made me more brutal Rock Hard against love. I decided Love is fake. Love is a sweet lie.
My love started calling me again. At first I used to avoid her. I blocked her number. Though she managed to call me from different numbers. She was mad this time. After 45 days at Guwahati I left and moved to my place.And that was the time she triggered another soft position into my heart. With her big effort and her emotional messages melt me again.
Then I moved to Most Romantic place Tezpur. Almighty made me join one of the best Engineering Institute GIMT TEZPUR, and this time the Hostel was quite different. Best hostel of my life. Parallely, she moved to a Hostel for graduation and she didn’t had a phone this time.
I met different peoples and found peoples who never fell in love and was doing great.
In Engineering I had very less time for me, actually I was a bit serious about it and in free time I used to roam with friends and used to watch movie.
OUT OF SIGHT IS OUT OF MIND
“OUT OF SIGHT IS OUT OF MIND” She used to say this dialogue to me and she used to doubt me with her imagination. And her doubts ruined our relationship.
Long DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP
Long DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP never succeed. Without contact, without meeting this Relationship was like a hole in a ship i.e, it was about to sink. I became very rude to her, as she was doubting me for no reason. I used to abuse her on messages. She used to doubt me more and daily we were fighting more and more. Break up became our daily routine. Then again patch up. It was the new normal between us.
Out of sight is out of mind, she proved right. She met a guy who used to talk to her sweetly, and she used to tell me about him that he(new guy) used to care for her more than me and blah blah. Then She was always trying to say about him to me.
One day she told me if she had a boyfriend like him and that day I told her to go with him. This time it was final.
Then she was with him happily for a long time. After so many days she found out her new boyfriend was cheating with her. She had no way than come back to me again.
But this time I said no more. It has to stop. Nobody can use me and I should not let others to use me in their needs.
I changed completely. I focused on my study and I cleared my Engineering.
Last winter she married to someone. She talked to me 1 week before her marriage. She apologized to me for her mistakes, I apologized to her for mine. Now she’s happily married to a banker. I wish She’s verry happy with that lucky man as because their marriage was love marriage.
I stopped loving. I don’t know if it will happen again. The emptiness in my heart is filled by doubts, rage, though I am very motivated and one day everything will be fine.
I wish her a great life. I will be happy if she’s happy. And now I don’t like to link my name to her, so I am not mentioning her name. Though Life is to experiencing and learning. I learnt a lot, experienced a lot and in future this experience will be valuable. I am happy for me, for her , for everything. I don’t regret.
High Income Skills that makes you rich
Hello my friends this is Amir Sohail Khan. Today One of my Guest want to talk with you about his story who provides several simple tips that you can do and that will make you richer in long term. Now he’ll continue with his story-
I have been getting so many questions. If you follow my work you are familiar with my wealth triangle. If you have not watched the post, click on the button right here and watch that particular post. So many people are asking me, Mr Zigler, what are some of the high income skills that I can develop today that will free me from financial struggles and worries forever?
Now, in case you don’t know what a high income skill is, I define high income skill as a skill that you could develop in a short period of time that will make you a minimum of $10,000 a month. Basically six figure a year without a degree. That’s how I define high income skill.
Now notice, I did not say a high income job. I’m not talking about a high income job. I’m talking about a particular skill set that you can bring value to the marketplace in exchange of money. So let me share with you a little but about my journey .How I have developed all my high income skills. And how I can of stacking each high income skill one on another and build my empire.
High Income Skills that makes you rich
First high income skill
The very first high income skill that I have developed which is copywriting. Yes, copywriting. Now if you don’t know what copywriting is, copywriting is nothing more than salesmanship in print. It’s persuasion in print. It’s meaning crafting the ads. Crafting the sales pitch. Crafting the video sales letter. Back then I was writing for full page ads, Yellow Pages, direct mail pieces like good old paper, envelope, stamps. That’s when I got started. So copywriting.
I was writing these marketing literatures for companies and entrepreneurs. And they were paying good money for that. At first they were paying me a couple hundred dollars, eventually then $1,000, $2,000, $4,000.Then in the peak of my copywriting career I was actually making about $10,000 a month.
As a young copywriter in my twenties. Now that may or may not be a lot of money for some people but to me back then I felt like a million bucks. I thought I was rich. I thought I could do this forever, it’s awesome. Then as I was writing these sales letters and copy and for companies, for entrepreneurs, now they’re asking me well so Dan, this is a great marketing piece, how do I send this out? Where do I send this out? What list should I send this out to? So then I was transitioning into doing some consulting for them.
High Income Skills that makes you rich
Second high income skill
So I went from copywriting, I added another high income skill to my tool belt, which is consulting. I was consulting with them first on an hourly basis which is a horrible idea. Then it’s more of per project it’s a little bit better. Then later on I learned, I got smarter and I started charging a retainer. So I charged them on a monthly basis. I was getting paid month by month, month by month on a retainer. So I added another six figure income to what I do. That’s my second high income skill.
Third high income skill
Then, from there I went into digital marketing. I went online, I was selling things on eBay, growing my business. So I believe the third good high income skill that you could develop, especially if you’re millennial, if you’re young is digital marketing.
It means that you are building funnels for people. You are helping people manage their Facebook. You are helping people grow their Instagram. Any of the social media platforms because companies and entrepreneurs, there is such a demand right now in the marketplace that they’re not caught up with what’s happening with social media. They need help. And you could charge a good amount of money helping them do these things.
Things you’re already using every single day, so you might as well make money doing that. The great thing about this type of high income skill, everything that I’m talking about so far, copywriting, consulting and digital marketing, you are helping entrepreneurs and companies make more money. And it’s easier to charge are occurring revenue model. You can charge them one thousand a month, two thousand a month, three thousand a month to do this.
It means that you don’t need that many clients to make ten thousand a month, right? If you get very, very good you might just need a few clients to make ten thousand a month. Just from home, in your spare time.
High Income Skills that makes you rich
Fourth high income skill
The four, number four high income skill that I believe is very, very powerful and didn’t know about this before but now as I’m doing this I know the power of this and that is YouTube.YouTube, the power of being a YouTuber. It is a great high income skill. It takes a little while to get it going but once you get it going, not just essence revenue, maybe in the future I could talk about this, but you can make a very good living, if you know what you’re doing.
As a YouTuber, you can share your passion. You can share your hobby. You can go traveling and just kind of make video sand make good money doing that.
Now, I don’t even count on what I make from YouTube. It’s like a tiny bit of money but for most people it is a good way to make a living. It’s a very powerful high income skill and also you get to impact people. You get to help people. You can also see how your videos, how your message, how your story is impacting people around the world. I think that’s a pretty special high income skill.
Fifth high income skill
High Income Skills that makes you rich
What I believe the most powerful high income skill of all that also makes all these other high income skills work better is closing. In my case, high ticket closing. The ability to close sales. If you have the closing skill, when it comes to copywriting you’ll be able to charge more money.
You’ll be able to close better clients, better contracts. Consulting, you need closing skill. Digital marketing, you need closing skill. YouTube, making video, you need to be able to communicate. You need closing skill. So I believe closing skill’s what makes all these other skills work. What this whole thing boils down to is the ability to communicate. Write this down. Communication = Wealth. Comment below. Communication = Wealth. You will not be able to create wealth without being a good communicator. So you always want to work on your communication skill
So you always want to work on your communication skill. So those are the five best high income skills that I believe, because those are things that I have personally done, without a degree. I don’t have a degree. If you know my story, I’m a college dropout. But because I’ve mastered these high income skills. Then what I do is, when I grow my companies, I simply take these skills that I have and I have other skill sets too, but I take these skillsets and then I transition.
I use the same skill sets to grow my companies to millions and millions and millions of dollars in revenue. That’s what I do. So there you go. Five high income skills. Comment below and let me know which one you feel resonates with you. Which one you think you know what, Mr Zigler I want to learn that. That’s what I want to do. Or no, I don’t want to do that. This is what resonates with me. I want to develop that high income skill. Comments below and let me know and maybe I’ll make some more posts in this site and expand on some of these topics. Until next time, I’ll see you.

How Anyone can Invest and Become Rich.
Warren Buffett one of the most successful investors of all times with an estimated net worth of over 80billion dollars.
Warren Buffett has shared his methods for investing. Having bought his first stock at eleven years of age and having a fifty three thousand dollars to his name. At seventeen he sure knows a thing or two about this market and even though he spent a lifetime developing his skills. He’s now shared some very straightforward advice about investing that anyone can take advantage of. #warrenbuffettstocks
How Anyone can Invest and Become Rich. 3 Quotes
So in this blog post I’ll show you how you can invest your money safely and become filthy rich.
Warren Buffett’s first rule is to simply think long term over short term. He might be going overboard with this concept and he’s truly embracing it around his entire life. He still lives in the same house he bought in 1958 and is also working at the very same desk since fifty years back and doesn’t use a computer, a traditional pen and paper.
Why Google?, when you can just use an outdated encyclopedia book and spend 40 minutes. Maybe finding what you look for right when it comes to computers he’s only sent one email in his life and I’ll tell you who, it was sent to Jeff freaks of Microsoft. Jeff reeks? Who is that? You might ask! I have no idea and Warren Buffett is still rocking the good old Nokia phone and to be fair that thing lasts longer than the iPhones I’ve had in my life. And he’s been quoted saying:
“I don’t throw anything away until I had it for at least 20 to 25years”.Warren Buffet
Thinking long term.
So thinking long term is natural for him and the ability to resist selling has proved to be very successful for him. So having that said the reason for why he’s holding onto what he buys is because he does his homework and does so very well he stated many times that he spends 80percent of his day reading and catching up with the latest news and what companies to investing. He thinks about life and investing as learning as much as he can and reads between six hundred to a thousand pages every single day.
So before he makes an investments he makes sure he knows the ins and outs and has a deep understanding of even the smallest details of the operations in a businesses he wants to invest in. And it tends to invest in huge companies that he thinks has the ability to live and strive for along time. And it makes the matter for that investing is a lot like baseball and instead of swinging at every ball that comes his way he waits for just the right pitch.
He’s got the patience to watch pitch after pitch go by until just the right one comes his way and even when people are screaming to swing, he remains calm, have trust in himself and only swings at the pitches that’s in his area. When he’s done his research and an opportunity comes along to investing that’s in his area of expertise that’s when he goes for the homerun and hits big. However not many people have a time or money to read for eight hours a day and invest a few billions in the biggest companies like Warren Buffett and it’s not a strategy that anyone can apply and find success with.
The Berkshire Hathaway annual report of 2013
And I wanted to make a article explaining how absolutely anyone can invest and become rich without taking time to read and grasp what they invest in. Which is why I’m super excited to share this with you. So in reading the Berkshire Hathaway annual report of 2013, one of the most interesting paragraphs I found was on page 20. warren buffett stocks : Where he gave a very simple and straightforward advice about investing:
“He says my money is where my mouth is”.Warren Buffet: How Anyone can Invest and Become Rich. warren buffett stocks
What I advise here is essentially identical to certain instructions I’ve laid out in my will. So in his will he’s demanded that the future of his family’s money should be invested such as this for ten percent of the cash in short-term government bonds and ninety percent in a very low-cost S&P, 500 index fund and he finishes it off by stating “I believe the trust long term results. From this policy will be superior to those attained by most investors totally was straightforward at night. Don’t try to outplay the market but he said,
“Play with it no man or machine can predict the ups and downs of the market”.Warren Buffet: How Anyone can Invest and Become Rich: warren buffett stocks
Well except for Warren Buffett, maybe so it would be foolish to try to beat it when you can simply join it. The very same formula was also mentioned in Tony Robbins book “Money”. Most of the game and index funds really seems to be the future of investing because the market will always rise in the long term and that’s essentially what you invest in the market and the S&P 500 contains all the 500 largest companies, the trades on the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq.
So instead of picking stocks individually, you cannot own a piece of all of the biggest companies such as Apple Microsoft and Google. Like I discussed early were buffed is an expert if picking the best companies out of these 500 and invest huge amounts in them but this will save you time and you have a very secure investment that can bring great returns over time.
And investing in an index fund is very secure since a single company might go bankrupt, however the market will not and you don’t have to stick to only the same market but could also invest in the European and US and Asian markets. That’s also doing very well you can even invest in global index funds. The owner part of the biggest companies in the world and for the other 10% the short-term government bonds is a very low risk, low cost alternative. Short term bonds are very attractive to investors because they are very stable and consistently rising.

However the returns tends to be smaller and I have taken a very similar but slightly more aggressive approach investing as warren buffett is suggesting and had great results with it. Now linked to Berkshire Hathaway annual report in the description if you want to read it and I’ll finish off this article through Warren Buffett’s own words “The goal of the non-professionals should not be to pick winners but you rather beat on a cross-section of businesses that in aggregate are bound to do well”. Hope you enjoyed it please help us grow by sharing the post with your friends.

The first one to earn money online is ecommerce.
The first one is ecommerce and specifically selling on Amazon okay selling on Amazon. Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world in fact just actually the other day I was just reading about Prime Day the time of this post we just had Prime Day, Big Billion Day which are the biggest retail events of the year. It says on the Google, shoppers stay away from stores make 7 billion plus splurge online that’s not even including Prime day or Big Billion days etc. Big Billion day is just after Prime Day where people are more known to actually buy online but the statistics and the data all shows and points to people buying less and less in physical retail stores less and less people are buying from brick-and-mortar stores they’re not buying from Mega Mart Malls and Target and these. You know this stores as much as they used to I mean if you think about it’s such a hassle to get out of your house put on your shoes and get in your car drive to Mega Mart Malls you can look for parking and then you’re gonna walkthrough the aisles and you have to.
You know check out the product behind the clerk and the whole process of shopping is kind of getting a more old-school compared to what you can do today. From the comfort of your home you take out your phone you take out your computer you can you have way more variety of products that are available on Amazon for example you got Amazon Prime you already got your credit card length you just fill out your shopping cart, hit checkout and then before you know it the next day or a few days after that the products are arriving to your door and Amazon I mean not only are they the biggest retail giant I mean if you look at Target Mega Mart Malls they’re investing more into their e-commerce to take advantage of it but Amazon is bigger than all of them combined and one of the greatest advantages of Amazon I’ll go more into the model in ways that you can make money from Amazon but with Amazon they’re on the cutting edge of all the technological advances I mean in terms of their fulfilment center I mean with robotics and artificial intelligence those are new advances that Amazon’s heavily investing into which makes it easier and better and faster and cheaper for someone like yourself or myself to sell on their platform they already have hundreds of millions of people that use Amazon. #earn money online
and they’re growing massively international you know with their ability to better ship products and get products from their warehouses to the consumers hands and doors faster they’re on the cutting edge of so Amazon is a company that is only going up there’s only more and more potential from Amazon. #earn money online
I mean they grow about 20% every year and it’s staggering the opportunity of it I mean when I look at almost everyone that I know that sells on Amazon or Shopify or online in general there their numbers are going up year after year because as Amazon grows you benefit from that so as I said arising tide raises all the ships so. Amazon I think is one of the best opportunities now when I look at Amazon what is a Amazon sell Amazon sells books and everything else alright so they started as a bookstore online but they’ve branched off to selling pretty much everything you can possibly think of is on Amazon so the bigger opportunity on Amazon is private labelling products selling physical products so for example the process of that and I’ve got other posts on my site that you can browse around and find that explained the process more but it’s deciding on a product that you want to sell in Amazon that has high potential demands and then what you do is you find a supplier that’s manufacturing that product whether that supplier is in the United States whether it’s in India, whether it’s in any other country around the world and you have the manufacturer, the product you put your own packaging your own label on that product it’s called private labelling. #earn money online
If you can make the product better you should, if you can make it improve it of course you always want to do that or differentiate in someway but you then get that product made overseas, you ship it to the United States or whatever Amazon platforms are selling it could be in Europe it could be in Canada it could be in Australia but you send it to Amazon’s fullfilment centers and then you set up your Amazon listing and now you have your own real estate on Amazon’s website.
Do you have your own product your own product listing with images the price reviews all of that and then you learn how to how, how to rank your product on Amazon you can run Amazon ads there’s so many strategies available on how to sell your product but Amazon does a lot of the heavy lifting for you because they take care of the fulfillment for you and they even help you with the marketing of your product. #earn money online
So Amazon is not going away the opportunity of it is huge with physical products as well as books, ebooks are great as well when I look at books whether you want to write books yourself or hire a ghost writer to write for you or partner with other authors you can publish Kindle books you can publish paperback books or hard cover books or audio books, right I mean audiobooks is it’s got huge potential because more and more people they can see them content through through audio write podcasts and audio books of that nature so there’s so much potential in Amazon I think that’s one of the greatest opportunities. #earn money online
That’s you know that has been for the last years but continues to grow I don’t see it slowing down there’s so much opportunity for someone that’s brand-new because there’s so many types of products that you can sell and there’s not enough competition in my opinion because there the amount of demand that consumers have on Amazon far outweighs the number of competition there. #earn money online
That there is so Amazon is great and I think Amazon is the most powerful platform for e-commerce but also leveraging Shopify which is creating your own online store you don’t get the same benefits at Amazon does for you but Shopify a lot gives you more control over your brand and your products so starting on Amazon and then transition you to Shopify I think that is one of the best strategies out there in terms of building a business creating passive income and creating the life that you want so.
Number two to earn money online would be Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is my favorite way of making money online and affiliate marketing is always going to be relevant and always have opportunity and potential because affiliate marketing is when you promote other people’s products.
now all of these companies that sell online whether they sell on Amazon they saw on Shopify they’ve got their own course their own digital product no matter what it is the number one challenge that every company online has is selling their products they want to get more sales right they want to increase the number of buyers and customers that they have and so that’s why all of these companies out there including Amazon they have affiliate programs.
an affiliate program that anybody can join they’re free to join so for example if you want to join amazon’s affiliate program you can if you want to join an affiliate programs for most products out there you can and when you join their affiliate program they’re gonna give you a percentage out of every sale you generate for them so they give you an affiliate link you can use that link under blog on your YouTube channel your social media you know you’re running ads or whatever it is you can use that link and when you generate, when you drive traffic and people click on the link and they buy the product you earn.
You earn a commission from that you know it’s pretty awesome because you didn’t have to create the product you didn’t have to invent it you don’t have to take the risk you didn’t have to invest in inventory you didn’t have to build a team and have customer service and all the expenses that are involved in creating and selling a product as an affiliate marketer you can just promote someone else’s product by sending your affiliate link or whatever it is and you make Commission’s from it.
So affiliate marketing is one of the best ways. It’s one of the easiest ways to make money online and get started because you don’t have to invest as much time or money or take as big of a risk as selling your own product okay so I love affiliate marketing gives the opportunity to promote any product on Amazon that you want as an affiliate earn a commission from it and there’s alot of products you can sell that are higher ticket specifically online courses where you can earn a higher commission from you can earn a more higher commission from that and it’s great so affiliate marketing is always relevant because every company is always gonna welcome affiliates.
I always want people to help them sell and promote their products and they’re more than happy to give you a commission from that so affiliate marketing is great it’s one of the best opportunities and often what I look at to this might be a bit more advanced I look at how you can combine them together because listen if you’ve got a product you’re selling on Amazon your own Shopify store whatever you’re collecting the buyers and customers and ultimately your goal of that is not just to have a one time buyer a one time consumer but someone that is gonna buy from you again and again so you always want to build an email list of your buyers and customers whether that’s selling on Amazon or Shopify but there’s always a back-end component to every business because it’s a lot easier for you to profit from customers you already have then going out there and acquiring new customers as the customers you already have they’ve already bought from you they’ve already raised their hand they’re looking for help they already trust you because I’ve already purchased from you once and you’ve delivered for them a great product. #earn money online
It’s a lot easier for you to profit from them by focusing more on how to serve your existing customers and one of the best ways to do that is through affiliate marketing because if you have an email list then you can promote products to them and share them sure more additional products that can help serve them that you could be an affiliate for that you didn’t have to invent or create yourself and you can earn commissions from that so I always look at how you can combine them together right how you can leverage affiliate marketing with physical products combine the two together to increase her back end and ultimately the long-term value of your customers. #earn money online
The third one to earn money online that I’d say is being an influencer
Being an influencer now we all know the power of influence and the trend of what influencers has been over the last few years and it’s not slowing down. I mean these days everyone is becoming an influencer and influencers is such a great opportunity because all of these platforms out there such as YouTube and Instagram and a podcast and a blog and Facebook all of these platforms they’re free to use anybody can join and set up a YouTube account a Facebook account and create content. You can share your ideas with the world you can share what you’re learning you can entertain people you can express yourself in whatever way that you want and if your content is good and valuable then people will find it, they’ll follow you and they’ll build a relationship with you.
The most valuable thing you could ever have on the Internet is attention. Attention because attention is what all these companies are trying to get that’s why they spend money on advertisements so that they can get in front of you they can get your attention because without your attention then you’re not gonna go in and buy their product but influencers are people that have built a following they built an audience of people they have people’s attention and more importantly they built a relationship and trust with those people over a period of time now companies out there they’re looking to market their products and so they’re looking for influencers to represent their product to share their product with their audience, to be an ambassador of their product they’re looking if you have a podcast they want to sponsor your podcast to get the attention of some of your listeners on your podcast or on the YouTube channel right that’s why on YouTube videos like this you might see advertisements pop up because companies they want to get in front of my audience and other people’s audiences on YouTube so they’re willing to pay money for that and if you’re an influencer you have a following people will pay money to you to get in front of your audience they’ll give you products and say hey listen to you can you share your product with your audience I’ll pay you to sponsor this post and share it with your audience. #earn money online
having a following gives the opportunity to launch your own course your own Amazon product or do affiliate marketing there’s a lot of different avenues that you can do as an influencer so influencer marketing is hot it’s growing and it’s it’s not saturated because here’s what I’ve learned about. But the thing with being an influencer is that everybody will connect and relate to someone different okay there’s only one of you and there’s only one of me so nobody could ever copy anyone okay it’s impossible to because we are each unique and differwaise and everyone is looking for someone that they can relate to that they could get kick they can connect with and and follow that is like them people like people that are like them, so for example if you’re in let’s say the self development niche which is massive, right? #earn money online
I’m part of the self development market now people don’t necessarily follow you for your content that’s one component of it but more importantly they’re following you for who you are your story and because they connect with you so a lot of these influencers let’s say let’s say coaches, youtubers, podcasters, bloggers in the self-development arena we can share the same content whether it’s about goal-setting and creating great habits in your life and be more positive and be more happy and being motivated changing your belief systems improving your health your relationships all of that but the content the message for the most part is the same but what makes it unique and different is your story and how you explain things your you know for example for me my story about how these things have helped my life and my delivery of the content and the information because people are gonna relate to my story over someone else’s story not everyone will relate to me some of you will others won’t others will relate to someone else.
People will relate and connect to you based on your age if you’re young then a younger demographic are gonna connect with you if you’re older let’s say you’re now in your 40s and 50s and60s then maybe you know that ones that are in their 20s aren’t going to connect with you as much they can’t relate to someone maybe that’s in their 50s but someone that’s in their 40s and 50s and60s they’re gonna connect and relate more and want to follow the person that is similar to them and their demographic versus the person that’s 20 years old if you’re a male or a female I mean if you’re a male you’re more likely to follow someone that’s also a male because you can connect and relate to them more if you’re a female you’re more likely to follow someone that’s a female even based on race if you’re white if you’re black if you’re Asian if you’re Hispanic not that you can’t and of course everybody you know you’ll still all different races and diversity is gonna follow everybody but your core demographic are gonna be more people.
If you’re white people that are white if you’re Asian people that are Asian because again people like people that are like them they’re gonna follow it connect with that a little bit more you friends that you have in your life I’m sure most of your friends that are people they’re more similar to you you have similar beliefs and values and goals and you might even look similar you might be in a similar age group if you’re a male most of your friends are probably males if you’re a female most of your friends are probably females so your story and who you are makes you unique and different than everyone else out there and the world needs more people that are different and unique to share and help and serve and it’s not like you know one person only follows one person people follow many people today so there’s so much room and opportunity. #earn money online
there is an influencer and it’s just something that companies are looking more for and the amount of money you can make as an influencer is only going to go up over a period of time so influencer marketing as I think is great and when I look at the platforms available I say the ones that have the greatest opportunity potential I consider is number one YouTube okay because the video is King. Video is the most consumed type of content on the Internet it’s not slowing down more and more people their attention span is shorter so they are more engaged by video and when you watch a video you can connect with that persona lot more than you can by reading their article or even listening to them on a podcast or just getting short snippets from them on Instagram Instagram for example it’s more designed like one-minute video clips it’s more surface level and shallow content YouTube or podcasts or even blogs they’re more deeper content so for you watching this video for the last 12 minutes or so it’s we’re going a lot deeper you’re getting to know me a lot more and a lot deeper than you would on Instagram or Facebook for example so and your and most likely you’re fully engaged with me in this post you know you’re looking at me right now you’re listening to me right now versus a podcast you might be driving your car you might be at the gym it’s more of a secondary modality you’re listening as you’re doing other things so video I think is the most powerful. #earn money online
The second one I like is blogging. Blogging and podcasts I kind of put even and it really depends on what your preference is podcasting I like because people can go deep and they a lot of people listen to podcasts the thing I don’t like about podcasts is that it’s very untrackable it’s hard to track things on a podcast and most often like for example you know iTunes doesn’t really give you much data of your viewership and your followers and all that sort of stuff excuse me but on the other hand a blog is very different than that a blog you can track everything on the blog and you can update and change there’s just a lot you can do with it now each of them there’s a learning curve to each of course and there’s different skills involved with it but I like blogging especially if you learn search engine optimization and how to rank your content but again like I said it depends on what you prefer if you’re more of a writer if you prefer speaking you know there’s different platforms that might be better suited based on your gifts and your skills of what you want to go deeper with in terms of social media . #earn money online
I think Instagram is the best and will continue to be in 2021. You know more powerful than snapchat and even Facebook now a lot of internet entrepreneurs are investing in their Instagram building they’re following their you can build a deep relationship with people on Instagram as well especially with stories by sharing your life the day to day cause people on Instagram they’re getting more of the behind-the-scenes they’re getting to know more about you when you’re not you know doing a YouTube video or a podcast they’re gonna see what you’re doing throughout the day and when you have daily influence over someone like that, that every day you make a post on Instagram or a story and you’re a part of someone’s life on a daily basis that’s powerful you have you have influence over their beliefs in the direction of their life so influencer marketing guys is huge and will continue to be huge in 2020 and beyond. #earn money online
The last one is Work from Home.
The last one I want to share with you is not necessarily starting an online business because I know some of you that are watching this right now you might not want to put yourself out there you know and that’s why I provide options I mean Amazon is greater you don’t have to put yourself out there you can actually as an Amazon selling a physical product you can find influencers and partner with them and send them products and they can be the influencers for your business or physical product brands so not even wants to put themselves out there you might want to be more behind the scenes and also not everyone’s an entrepreneur not everyone wants to run their own show not everybody wants to take the risks of what an entrepreneur does you know obviously entrepreneurship provides a lot more and potential but not everyone cares for that I think a great opportunity online is just being a freelancer okay looking for jobs that exist online because as the internet grows there’s more demand and need for all these companies to hire people companies as they grow their internet business as they grow their ecommerce store or whatever it is they need. #earn money online
web developers they need video editors and need graphic designers they need copywriters they need email marketers they need programmers they need you know all these skills social media marketers customer support reps managers they need people like that that they can hire to help work for their business and a lot of these companies today they provide the ability for you to work from home or anywhere in the world which is really the greatest advantage that you get from having an online business so you don’t have to start an online business you can instead work for a company that gives you the ability to work from home or any where that you want and you get the greatest perk without having to take the risk of starting an online business and suffered a lot of people that’s that’s great that’s more than enough they would love to have that freedom to work from home and to have some control over their own hours and how they spend their day If you’re a mom and you want to spend more time at home with your kids online business is great or online freelance job is great for that or an online business right because again you’re gonna spend more time at home with the kids and you can just work behind your computer and make some great money from that. #earn money online
So I think any skills online any internet marketing skills are incredibly valuable to learn and study and practice get good at looking for jobs available online so that you can work from home and develop skills that are always gonna be valuable they’re always going to be high demand now here’s something that a lot of people don’t think about I’m gonna wrap this up soon but this is really valuable of what I want to share with you before we wrap this up if you’re building a business if you’re learning how to sell on Amazon if you’re learning Shopify how to create an e-commerce store. if you’re learning how to run ads if you’re learning how to build a blog if you’re learning how to build a YouTube channel Instagram social media if you’re learning any of those skills as you’re building your own business a lot of people don’t realize that those what they learn whether it’s through a course or you study it through trial and error all of that is valuable for you to then do that for someone else because here’s the thing how many companies out there that sell their products in their local store, their brick-and-mortar store that have not yet transitioned to selling their product on Amazon but because you took a course because you learn because you studied because you’ve done it a few times before you have a skill set that you could then go to all these companies and say hey listen you’re not selling online I know how to put up products on Amazon I know how to set up Amazon listings fulfill my owns there I know I don’t have all of that I can do it for you and these companies are more than happy to pay you and hire you for you to do the work for them. #earn money online
if you know how to publish books on Amazon, do you have any authors that are out there that are great writers they love writing there they’re there that’s their gift and their purpose in life is writing but they’re not good at publishing they’re not good at marketing they’re terrified of technology. #earn money online
I don’t know how to do that stuff but because you published some books before you know the process you can then go to them and you can essentially be a freelance freelancer or create an agency where you provide services to these other authors companies and you can do the work for them so that’s another opportunity that a lot of people don’t think about and that’s a great way for you to make money by trading your money upfront to make that immediate income and develop your skills as you’re building your own online business which is more the passive income, a long-term stream for you so that’s a huge opportunity that people don’t realize people don’t realize that these skills of what you learn are valuable they’re valuable that other companies and people will pay money to have you do for them right or even to pay to learn from you in someway shape or form so there’s so much opportunity out there and I think regardless of whatever opportunity that you pursue the most important thing Is to get a boat in the water so as the tide rises you can benefit from it so I don’t care what that is you might have to dabble around a little bit try different things try publishing trying Amazon try Shopify you know to learn marketing how to drive traffic and affiliate marketing all these things and the skills you gain all help and work together to help make you more successful whether your end up doing service based business freelance agency or you find the right one for you that you really want to ramp up and scale so hopefully this post has benefited to you in some way. #earn money online
Shape or form I really just wanted to provide my opinion and the best opportunities I feel they’re available for us today so that you can take advantage of it and again I want to be realistic and honest with you that none none the process of success is not easy I mean it’s hard work it was easier than everyone would be successful I mean this is for the 1% the 1% of people ever become successful and it’s the 1% that’s willing to do what that 99% is not willing to do so you’re here right now I assume that you’re in that 1% you’re committed you’re eager you have a why and purpose for doing this and you want to pursue it. You know there’s a lot of people they’re not quite sure you might be in that boat right now you’re not sure which one you want to pursue there’s a lot of opportunity I get it it’s a high quality problem to have but you might not quite be sure so I created this quiz where you fill out a few answers and I’ll help you identify which one I think could be best for you again based on how much money you have to get started with because all these opportunities some might cost more money than others how much time that you have what your values and your motivation is so if you’re someone that’s just looking to make money then I can I can I can kind of guide you in one direction but if you’re something that wants to make money but also wants to do what they love what they’re passionate about or maybe you’re more driven to make a difference and a contribution to other people’s lives or maybe you want to be more behind the scenes you don’t wanna put yourself out on you. #earn money online.

I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about.
Worry Quotes by Elizabeth Olsen
यह इब्राहीम को अल्लाह के प्यार के लिए अपने बेटे इश्माएल को बलिदान की इच्छा का सम्मान करता है
दुनिया भर के मुसलमान ईद अल-अधा मना रहे हैं। Eid al-Adha happy eid ul adha
eid al adha eid mubarak wishes
धू अल-हिजाह के पवित्र महीने के 10 वें दिन गिरता है, ईद “बलिदान का त्योहार” है और हज यात्रा के साथ मदीना से मक्का तक जाता है। #bakra eid #eid celebration # Eid al-Adha
इस्लाम ने हाबिल और कैन (हैबिल और काबिल) के बलिदान के इतिहास का पता लगाया, जिसकी कहानी कुरान में वर्णित है।  हाबिल परमेश्वर के लिए एक जानवर की बलि देने वाला पहला इंसान था। इब्न कथिर बताते हैं कि हाबिल ने एक भेड़ की पेशकश की थी जब उसके भाई कैन ने अपनी जमीन की फसलों का हिस्सा देने की पेशकश की थी।
परमेश्वर की निर्धारित प्रक्रिया यह थी कि आग स्वर्ग से उतरेगी और स्वीकृत बलिदान का उपभोग करेगी। तदनुसार, आग नीचे आ गई और एबेल द्वारा वध किए गए जानवर को आच्छादित कर दिया, इस प्रकार एबेल के बलिदान को स्वीकार करते हुए कैन के बलिदान को अस्वीकार कर दिया गया। इससे कैन के हिस्से पर ईर्ष्या पैदा हुई जिसके परिणामस्वरूप पहली मानव मृत्यु हुई जब उसने अपने भाई हाबिल की हत्या कर दी। अपने कार्यों के लिए पश्चाताप न करने के बाद, कैन को परमेश्वर द्वारा माफ नहीं किया गया था। # Eid al-Adha
क़ुर्बानी की प्रथा का पता [इब्राहिम] से लगाया जा सकता है, जिसने यह सपना देखा था कि ईश्वर ने उसे उसकी सबसे कीमती चीज़ का त्याग करने का आदेश दिया था। इब्राहिम दुविधा में था क्योंकि वह यह निर्धारित नहीं कर सकता था कि उसकी सबसे कीमती चीज क्या थी। तब उन्हें एहसास हुआ कि यह उनके बेटे का जीवन है। उसे भगवान की आज्ञा पर भरोसा था। उन्होंने अपने बेटे को इस उद्देश्य से अवगत कराया कि वह अपने बेटे को उनके घर से क्यों निकाल रहा था।
उनके बेटे इस्माइल ने भगवान की आज्ञा का पालन करने के लिए सहमति व्यक्त की, हालांकि, भगवान ने हस्तक्षेप किया और उन्हें सूचित किया कि उनके बलिदान को स्वीकार कर लिया गया है, और अपने बेटे को एक भेड़ के साथ बदल दिया है। यह प्रतिस्थापन या तो स्वयं के धार्मिक संस्थागतकरण या इस्लामिक पैगंबर मुहम्मद और उनके साथियों (जो इश्माएल की संतान से उभरने के लिए किस्मत में थे) के भविष्य के आत्म-बलिदान को इंगित करता है। उस दिन से, वर्ष में एक बार प्रत्येक ईद अल-अधा, दुनिया भर के मुसलमान इब्राहिम के बलिदान और खुद को अपमान की याद दिलाने के लिए एक जानवर का वध करते हैं। # Eid al-Adha
त्याग का दर्शन
क़ुर्बानी के पीछे दर्शन यह है कि यह परमेश्वर को प्रस्तुत करने का एक प्रदर्शन है, परमेश्वर की इच्छा या आज्ञा का पूरा पालन करना और अपने आनंद के लिए सब कुछ बलिदान करना है। इब्राहिम ने सबमिशन और बलिदान की इस भावना का बेहतरीन तरीके से प्रदर्शन किया। जब प्यार और निष्ठा की चुनौती का सामना किया, तो उन्होंने परमेश्वर को बिना शर्त प्रस्तुत करने का विकल्प चुना और अपने परिवार और बच्चे के लिए व्यक्तिगत इच्छा और प्रेम को दबा दिया। क़ुर्बानी नफरत, ईर्ष्या, गर्व, लालच, दुश्मनी, दुनिया के लिए प्यार और दिल की ऐसी अन्य विकृतियों पर साहस और प्रतिरोध की छुरी रखकर एक जन्मजात इच्छाओं के वध का आह्वान करती है। # Eid al-Adha
इस्लाम में, इस्लामी कैलेंडर के 12 वें चंद्र महीने के 13 वें धू ल हिजाह के सूर्यास्त के 10 वीं सुबह से एक जानवर का बलिदान कानूनी है। इन दिनों दुनिया भर के मुसलमान क़ुरबानी की पेशकश करते हैं जिसका अर्थ है कि विशिष्ट दिनों में किसी जानवर का बलिदान या वध। इसे इब्राहिम द्वारा अपने बेटे के स्थान पर एक बलिदान की प्रतीकात्मक पुनरावृत्ति धारणा और इस्लाम के महत्वपूर्ण समान समझा जाता है। # Eid al-Adha
Who Is Bill Gates?
Entrepreneur Bill Gates founded the world’s largest software business, Microsoft, with Paul Allen, and subsequently became one of the richest men in the world.
He is best known as the co-founder of Microsoft Corporation. During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of chairman, chief executive officer (CEO), president and chief software architect, while also being the largest individual shareholder until May 2014. He is one of the best-known entrepreneurs and pioneers of the microcomputer revolution of the 1970s and 1980s.
Also read, Bill Gates’s Wife and net worth.
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Gates co-founded Microsoft with childhood friend Paul Allen in 1975, in Albuquerque, New Mexico; it went on to become the world’s largest personal computer software company. Gates led the company as chairman and CEO until stepping down as CEO in January 2000, but he remained chairman and became chief software architect. During the late 1990s, Gates had been criticized for his business tactics, which have been considered anti-competitive.
This opinion has been upheld by numerous court rulings. In June 2006, Gates announced that he would be transitioning to a part-time role at Microsoft and full-time work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the private charitable foundation that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, established in 2000. He gradually transferred his duties to Ray Ozzie and Craig Mundie. He stepped down as chairman of Microsoft in February 2014 and assumed a new post as technology adviser to support the newly appointed CEO Satya Nadella.
Since 1987, he has been included in the Forbes list of the world’s wealthiest people. From 1995 to 2017, he held the Forbes title of the richest person in the world all but four of those years. In October 2017, he was surpassed by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who had an estimated net worth of US$90.6 billion compared to Gates’s net worth of US$89.9 billion at the time. As of July 2020, Gates had an estimated net worth of US$111.8 billion, making him the second-wealthiest person in the world, behind Bezos.
Later in his career and since leaving day-to-day operations at Microsoft in 2008, Gates has pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors. He has given sizable amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, reported to be the world’s largest private charity. In 2009, Gates and Warren Buffett founded The Giving Pledge, whereby they and other billionaires pledge to give at least half of their wealth to philanthropy.
Gates was born William Henry Gates III on October 28, 1955, in Seattle, Washington. Gates grew up in an upper-middle-class family with his older sister, Kristianne, and younger sister, Libby. Their father, William H. Gates Sr., was a promising, if somewhat shy, law student when he met his future wife, Mary Maxwell. She was an athletic, outgoing student at the University of Washington, actively involved in student affairs and leadership.
The Gates family atmosphere was warm and close, and all three children were encouraged to be competitive and strive for excellence. Gates showed early signs of competitiveness when he coordinated family athletic games at their summer house on Puget Sound. He also relished in playing board games (Risk was his favorite) and excelled at Monopoly.
Gates had a very close relationship with his mother, Mary, who after a brief career as a teacher devoted her time to helping raise the children and working on civic affairs and with charities. She also served on several corporate boards, including those of the First Interstate Bank in Seattle (founded by her grandfather), the United Way and International Business Machines (IBM). She would often take Gates along when she volunteered in schools and at community organizations.
Bill Gates’s Education
Bill Gates was a voracious reader as a child, spending many hours poring over reference books such as the encyclopedia. Around the age of 11 or 12, Gates’s parents began to have concerns about his behavior. He was doing well in school, but he seemed bored and withdrawn at times, and his parents worried he might become a loner.
Though they were strong believers in public education, when Gates turned 13, his parents enrolled him at Seattle’s exclusive preparatory Lakeside School. He blossomed in nearly all his subjects, excelling in math and science, but also doing very well in drama and English.
While at Lakeside School, a Seattle computer company offered to provide computer time for the students. The Mother’s Club used proceeds from the school’s rummage sale to purchase a teletype terminal for students to use. Gates became entranced with what a computer could do and spent much of his free time working on the terminal. He wrote a tic-tac-toe program in BASIC computer language that allowed users to play against the computer.
Gates graduated from Lakeside in 1973. He scored 1590 out of 1600 on the college SAT test, a feat of intellectual achievement that he boasted about for several years when introducing himself to new people.
Did Bill Gates Go to College?
Gates enrolled at Harvard University in the fall of 1973, originally thinking of a career in law. Much to his parents’ dismay, Gates dropped out of college in 1975 to pursue his business, Microsoft, with partner Allen.
Gates spent more of his time in the computer lab than in class. He did not really have a study regimen; he got by on a few hours of sleep, crammed for a test, and passed with a reasonable grade.
Jeff Bezos the richest man in the World
Jeff Bezos , byname of Jeffrey Preston Bezos, (born January 12, 1964, Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.), American entrepreneur who played a key role in the growth of e-commerce as the founder and chief executive officer of Amazon.com, Inc., an online merchant of books and later of a wide variety of products.
