Lessons Learned in 2017


2017 has been an awful year for me health wise, but fantastic internet wise ๐Ÿ™‚ It fell into 2 main categories – What I have learned and betting/get rich quick systems I have tested.

In this post I’ll cover what I have learned and in the next I’ll explain the schemes.

The most important thing I have learned is that investing in your education and business is vital.

Whether you are a bitcoin miner/investor trying to get people to sign up to your scheme or you have set up a Spotify/Oberlo drop shipping business you simply MUST learn how to list build and market properly. I’ve seen many, many people not applying basic principles and potentially losing out on tons of affiliate sign-ups because of it.

I still recommend the Six Figure Mentor’s for training. Join them, get a 30 day free trial and you’ll never look back.

The second is that the rise of automation is unstoppable.

I can see whole swathes of society losing their jobs, in particular driving jobs and warehousing.

I had a conversation just last week with a taxi driver about how they are running driver-less cabs in Tokyo and America and he had to retrain now or his job would evaporate.

I explained that the company he works for will automate as soon as possible because people are the largest cost of any business and businesses will get rid of them at every opportunity.

To paraphrase him, “it might be good enough for Tokyo but there’s no way we’ll have driver-less cars here anytime soon”.

I explained that we really will, in the next 3-5 years, but he wouldn’t believe me. I got out of the car sad and frustrated. I wish people would just listen to me! They have plenty of time to retrain so long as they start now but to a person they donโ€™t believe me. They think it’s too futuristic {sigh}.

The third is that people don’t understand risk properly.

Bitcoin and other crypto-coins have been a wild ride this year but what I have found most disturbing are the number of people just diving in without carefully considering what they are doing.

I’ve tested Power Mining Pool to prove it works. However I still see people expecting short term profits (i.e. trading) but not applying a trader’s mentality to it.

They really should take a trading course before starting, even a gambling risk course would help because it’s the same thing.

I’ll try to create a simple course about risk next year but for now, if you or anyone you know is considering investing in anything (Bitcoin, other crypto-coins, the stock-market, Betfair trading or binary options) please make sure you take some proper risk training, and advise your contacts to do it too.

That’s all for now.

I hope you have a great boxing day.





Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas is here and if there is one thing I have learned from last year it’s that there should be plenty of football and horse racing offers over the next few days ๐Ÿ™‚

Also I have the arduous task of working out which is my gin and gaming day – the one day of the year I sit and drink gin or Southern Comfort and play an old video game from beginning to end.

This year I reckon it will be Twilight Princess for Gamecube, I never did get to play it, but there again I might go for Atik-Atak. Choices choices.

I normally buy a million video games in the Steam sale but I am saving money to invest in my business so I reckon Reaper of Souls for about ยฃ8 will be my one and only purchase this year. I already have Diablo 3 and have completed it many times in the past. I really fancy finishing the DLC for it.

I thought long and hard about getting the Destiny 2 DLC but it really is a game to play with friends, and I have no (PC) gamer friends so it get’s a bit boring on my own or with a Pub.

What are you up to over Christmas? Anything good?




Hedging My Bets, kind of – Bitcoin, Litecoin, Etherium and the mighty Scotcoin

Let me start by saying I don’t have a lot of money in the current crypto currency crazyness, mainly because I don’t have much to put in.

I bought some Scotcoins many moons ago so had some experience of crypto currency before diving into Bticoin.

By “dive” I mean do a very careful test of bitcoin mining. I fancied mining as I imagine it to be more steady and less volatile than actually owning BTC.

I don’t actually know if that is true so I thought that as well as the mining I might as well get some as a straight investment and hedge my bets.

I went to buy some Etherium but somehow, and I have absolutely no recollection of doing it, I had already bought some!

Being as I was going to buy Etherium but already had some, I decided to buy some Litecoin.

So it turns out I have quite a portfolio of crypto currencies going!

I can also say I have “more than your average person’s” knowledge of crypto currency. I could probably write a video course but everyone is doing that it would seem, so it seems pointless.

Needless to say – click here to do some mining. You don’t need to but get some affiliate sales and watch your income boom!

If you have any crypto currency questions I might be able to answer, send them over and I’ll see if I can help you out.
