I’d just given up on making a bit of extra money on the Internet. When you think about it, it’s lovely to have a steady income from doing almost nothing (and, yes, that includes the selling bit which is optional). ‘Almost nothing’ can be a veil to bring people in and then accidentally slip the occasional ‘little extra’ they’d forgotten to mention and, before you know it, you’ve another full time Internet cum marketing business on your hands.
I have nothing against people selling and making a fortune on the Internet because I like to see people do well – particularly when they’ve worked hard and overcome various obstacles. I’m afraid I can’t profess to have overcome many of those obstacle about which I read that tend towards the ‘rags to riches’ theme. My grouse, I suppose, is that having been self-employed for so long (24 years), I’m not really sufficiently rich enough for a comfortable retirement (unless I manage to downsize before then, which is something on which I am working).
Failing that, like many others out there, I’m continuing for now with the hope of building a steady income stream that doesn’t mean having to sell.
‘So, why are you writing this ‘blog if not to sell?’ I can hear you thinking that now!
Simply because I love blogging so might as well try and make a little extra in doing so, but it won’t matter one jot if nobody takes the slightest notice of it. This is because money is accumulating regardless without any effort from me. Furthermore, it is in something of which I have personal interest (though not obsessive).
All I have to do is press a button that says ‘Continue Recycling’ about once a week – I even get an email to remind me when this is necessary.
There’s a god video you can watch here and an introductory e20 deposit you can play with – a sort of virtual stake – except that once you put in another e20 (minimum) of your own, you make money on both amounts (approx 14percent every 5 weeks).

I’m on yet another Business Course run by The Business Growth Hub in Manchester. We’ve studied various social platforms and I’m now committed to using what I feel has been the most useful part of the course.
That is the ‘Social Media plan’ whereby you choose your platforms, Answer questions to find your strategy, Goal Setting and Calendar all built into a spreadsheet that produces its own Analytics page – so no getting out of the action!
I’ve told people galore about these courses but no one seems to want to come along 😉 : Must be something I said, so I’m writing this ‘blog about it instead.
The only problem is there are so many of these learning sessions and, with the amount of food and snacks that are included, I’m slowly becoming a ‘Learnaholic’ and…..
Hmmm., I think the training is working already. I’m thinking here about telling The Business Growth Hub that they need someone to run a ‘Keep Slim At Your Computer Session’.
I’d better get on social networking and make it happen.
Click on the picture above to see how it all works. Once you’ve read through, it’s very simple. I’ve prepared some notes to help people get going – a sort of ‘Cheat Sheet’, I suppose, for those that want it as simple as possible 😉

I was summoned by Radio Manchester over to the Birch Service Station on the M62 yesterday morning first thing.
So there we were to the roar of the passing traffic at the Radio Manchester’s travelling reporter’s van cracking through the interview.
I would have liked more time with the lady caller but it went well, all the same – imho 😉
I even had a call from Radio 5 live waiting for me to go on their show but getting to my Greek lesson after the above interview meant that I didn’t get home in time.
Having got through the plane journey from The Hughes School of Motoring although, not entirely without hitch as, when having seated myself, a tendency towards OCD made me check ( for about the 50th time ) that my passport was still in the new bumbag, specially bought for the trip to Rome. These genius inventions might be fine for walking around the city, but fumbling to find the right compartment whilst awaiting take off on a Ryan Air Flight is not something to be recommended if, like me, the leg room issue is already beginning to cause anxiety. continue reading »
Comments Off on The Hughes School of Motoring attempts Rome
I’ve just been lost in Rome. With The Vatican, bus tour and a short guide on foot (from my nephew) all done, I had to make my way over to where he was staying with Rachel. Only 1k, but having become slightly worn by the wonderful food, wine and beers etc., my sense of direction was a little out.
Problem is you can run out of time with so many suggestions and ideas, but think I got the basic message across. Had great fun doing this with Kevin, the reporter. He had to shut me up at one point, of course, because I had far too much to say ( as usual ).
Comments Off on BBC Radio Manchester give me more air time *amazed*
My claim to fame this last month is to have been blocked/deleted whatever from 2 people’s FB sites. Hardly a big deal because, as we know, FB friends do not necessarily equate to real friends ( although they could well do ).
On the first occasion, I was merely providing a few facts to some very incorrect reporting by the Press in connection with one of the numerous awards given out within the driving instruction industry by various organisations. The result of my honesty was to see my posting removed. There was also much castigating of those who seemed to want to know the continue reading »
