But wait! There’s more!

You ever just have something grate on your nerves so much you can’t help but scream at the top of your lungs; “SHUT UP!” I had that moment this morning when it came to seeing all of the online and social media ads for the next best online “business” opportunity. Don’t get me wrong I’m all about entrepreneurs and the small business minded folks that make our country great. What I do have a problem with are the 21st century snake oil salesmen (and women) who promise the moon and stars via multi level marketing, passive income and other types of “out of the box” business opportunities.

The false claims of incredible wealth, riches and lifestyle is such a vile form of misrepresentation in my eyes. I too have fallen prey to this crap in the past. I assure you however that my eyes have seen the pitfalls of these things. It ain’t pretty for sure. And while i feel stupid for making a bad decision or two in getting involved with this stuff in the past, my spirit is far from broken and my dreams refuse to be dashed.

So to you dear reader I say this; Go for your dreams but know them well and be honest with yourself. Otherwise one of the aforementioned gimmicks can suck your soul right out of you. But there is a bright side. Subject matter such as this can make for some great comedy. It did for me anyway.

Now, Go Play!
