Want To Be A Success? Negotiate EVERYTHING Tuesday, Jun 23 2009 

I love to negotiate! Especially when the other person is not prepared mentally to negotiate. You need to become a top negotiator if you want to get ahead.

How to Create Income (Part 2: Earned vs. Alternative Income) Friday, Jun 5 2009 

I decided to make my focus in part 2 a comparison of 2 income types.

Earned and Alternative.

Earned income is quite typical and we all know what it is. So what I hope to discusses it my theory behind earned income and some methods of alternative income that people might find useful.

In my previous post I defined the different types of income that a person can have and the pro’s and cons of each.

I also made the statement, “earned income is the worst type of income there is”.

Making statements like that are dangerous (more…)
