Money Must Be Funny In The Rich Man’s World

The Swedish group ABBA said it so accurately in their song “Money Money Money”

Released in 1976, it became an instant hit. What’s more, the statement is as true today as it was back then. Money is indeed funny, IF you’re rich.

But what if you’re NOT rich? I know because I used to be poor. There was a time when I couldn’t pay my monthly bills, and I remember the mind numbing dread of what to do in order to get by. Every month choosing between the bills, paying those that I felt were most important and seeing my debt grow bigger by the day. I used to say “Money is the root of all evil”.


No Money = No Fun

Funny Money

The truth is, money is good, and funny even, when you have enough of it. When you don’t have to worry, because when you do your whole life is affected. Every decision you make is somehow linked to how much you can afford. Cheap or free pleasures are a thing of the past, and if you don’t have any money you can’t do anything.

Going out on the town isn’t very funny if you don’t have any money. No money for drinks, no money to pay the entrance to the clubs (but you probably couldn’t get in anyway in your shabby clothes, since most clubs worth frequenting have a dresscode), no money for the cab fare. No money for anything.

No Money No Entry

How about taking your kids for a day at the zoo? Well, the entrance alone would probably set you back $50-$60. Go swimming? Same problem. How about going to an amusement park? IN YOUR DREAMS!

In other words, if taking a stroll in the landscape isn’t your thing there is just about NOTHING you can do if you don’t have money to spend.

How many visits at the local playground before your kids are fed up with that? If you’re lucky there are more playgrounds nearby, but what kind of life is this?


The Poor Man’s Life

Not so long ago, my own life wasn’t so different from what I just wrote. We couldn’t afford much when the bills were paid, so we always tried to find cheap things, just so that we could survive. For almost two years my wife and I didn’t buy any clothes for ourselves, just so that our kids could get what they needed.

We never ate in restaurants or went out for a movie, or on vacation, or

anything that cost money. There were no Ipads or mobiles in our house and no fancy toys for the kids. We were driving around in a wreck of a car, but at least it got us from A to B, WHEN we could afford to buy fuel. So obviously, we never went on any road trips either.

We did all that we could, so that our children wouldn’t suffer too much. I quit football and martial arts practice, so we could afford clothes for the kids, and my wife quit her choir and Tae Kwon Do. We suffered and our relationship suffered, all because of money.

Money was indeed The root of all evil!

Imagine working full time, but as soon as the money hits your bank account it’s gone again. This was the case for my wife and me.

None of us were happy, and we both knew that the situation needed to change, and change quickly. So I started searching the internet for a solution, and after trying various things without success, I finally found Wealthy Affiliate.


Why Wealthy Affiliate?

Step by step training
Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp

I must admit, I was suspicious at first. It seemed too good to be true, and it was my experience that if something seems too good to be true, it usually IS.

But with Wealthy Affiliate it was different. First of all I didn’t have to pay any money to become a member. That’s right, it is FREE, so I figured “what have I got to lose?” The answer was nothing, and after just a few hours of testing, I knew that I had stumbled upon something unlike any other thing I had tried.

So I set up my first website and followed the step by step training and I soon started to see the potential of what I had become a part of.

So I kept following the training, and I am NOT a tech geek or even especially good at using the internet. At least I wasn’t back then. Today, I’d say I am quite good at finding my way around the net, even good enough to teach others. All because I followed the step by step training, and asked fellow members of WA, whenever I needed help.

At Wealthy Affiliate there are a lot of experts who are ready to assist you whenever you need help, and it doesn’t cost you a flat dime.

And me? I went from having NO money to being able to invite my wife and 3 kids, my mom and dad, my sister and her husband and their 2 daughters to Mogan in Gran Canaria staying in a 5 starred hotel for 14 days.

I now have a thriving online business with 5 websites, and more on their way. I make more money than I had ever dreamed, and I don’t have to work as much as when I was poor.

Truth be told, I sometimes work more, but that’s because I enjoy it so much, it doesn’t feel like work, and the money is rolling in. I actually decide my working hours, nobody else, just me.

So if you can recognize any of what I’ve written here, if you are having money problems, HERE is your solution. I made it and there is absolutely NO reason why YOU shouldn’t do the same!


So stop hurting and take action!

Why keep running around in the same mill? Why stay miserable?
