Hi All,

How did your week end up? Were you productive? Hopefully you were! Sorry for the lack of a new article this week, But I've been spending a lot of time reading some great material that has been really helping me stay focused and productive. So I'd figure I share these books with you so hopefully you can experience the same! I just finished and highly recommend reading The Compound Effect. (Shout out to Jeff for reminding me to buy this book!) The book is written by Darren Hardy who runs another publication I read regularly: Success Magazine I'm not great with massive change but this book shows you how making small little changes in various aspects of your life can lead to huge impacts over time.

This should be a familar concept to any of you who follow my multiple streams of income philosphy. Well this same mindset can be applied to other areas of your life and The Compound Effect basically guides you through it. So it's definitely worth checking out. Now if you're saying, Eddy I just don't have the time to read or don't like cuddling up to a good book. Trust me I'm in the same boat! But thank goodness for audio books and cds. That's pretty much how I "READ" all books nowadays. I listen to it as I drive, use the bathroom or if I'm waiting for someone. You would be surprised how fast you can "READ" a book this way. Listening to an audio book a few minutes a day adds up really quickly! So no excuses, check this book out. I promise you it will have a big impact on all facets of your life. If you've read this book or have suggestions like it, I'd love to hear from you down below!

In any event, enjoy the job leads below. We're back at full capacity now. My virtual assistant Denise was sick but is back on track now. Boy did I miss her last week and I'm sure you did too! 😉

  1. Dear Eddy,
    Thank you so very much for your help. I will go ahead and send the scanned copy of my driver’s license (with the number blocked out). I have been a writer all my life and now in my old age I find I need that skill, once again, for extra income. Social Security just doesn’t cover it any more.  
    Thanks again and bless you.  

    • You’re welcome Louise. Well isn’t it great that we live in a new age where you can earn money from the comfort of your home to give you the supplemental income you need. That’s the silver lining you have to look at. You have a skill that is in great demand online. So you should do well!

  2. Textbroker is a legit company (I’ve used them and been paid several times), but that is a bit suspicious. I was not asked that when I signed up and don’t know anyone else who was, either. If I were you, I’d email them back and ask what it was about your app that made them doubt your citizenship. Just explain that you’re not comfortable doing that.  

    • Anna, Thanks for chiming in. Based on the information provided it does look like it is truly TextBroker asking for the information. They are contacting her via the corporate offices. This is the first time I’ve ever heard this request from a company.

  3. Dear Eddy,
    The first email I received was:

    Dear Sir or Madam,Thank you for your interest in Textbroker. Unfortunately, we could not verify your registration information.Please note that we can only accept US citizens and residents as writers.As we couldn’t verify your US citizenship, we will need a picture-ID/photo-ID.Please send a legible copy of either your driver’s license or passport to us by e-mail, fax or post at:Textbroker International LLC9500 W Flamingo Rd Ste 202Las Vegas, NV 89147United StatesFax:  (702) 553-4256e-mail:  mail@textbroker.comWe assure that your data will be used exclusively to verify your citizenship and will be handled confidentially.Please go to  http://www.textbroker.com/us/privacy.php  for details on our privacy policy.We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.Sincerely,Your Textbroker Service Team———————————Textbroker International LLC9500 W Flamingo Rd Ste 202Las Vegas, NV 89147United States  

    When I wrote back and questioned this policy, I received this email:
    Hello,Due to an influx of non-US citizens or residents trying to write for our system, we have requested IDs from our new writers. This is for your safety, as well as ours. To be in compliance with IRS regulations, we must be sure that we are only paying American citizens to write for Textbroker. When sending us a copy of your government issued ID, you can block out your license number, but we do need to verify the issued, expiration and birth dates, as well as your address.While it is understandable that you would have some reservations about sharing your personal information, here’s our business information if it helps put you at ease.We are licensed in the State of Nevada, license number 1008126900.We are licensed in Clark County, license number 2000609.528, available at  http://www.accessclarkcounty.com/depts/business_license/pages/index.aspx.We were incorporated in Nevada in 2008.   Proof is on the Nevada Secretary of State’s website,  http://nvsos.gov/sosentitysearch/.   Enter “Textbroker” in the box to see our records.You can also find us on the BBB’s website here:  http://www.bbb.org/southern-nevada/business-reviews/marketing-programs-and-services/textbroker-in-las-vegas-nv-80625.   Accreditation with the BBB comes from paying to be a member, but you can see that we are rated there.Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can be of further assistance or if you have any other questions at all.   Have a wonderful day, and thank you for using Textbroker!Best Regards,Kimberly, Textbroker Support  
    The emails came from:

    I know this all sounds legitimate, but I need to be very careful. Thank you for all your help. You are very generous to share your blessings with others.

    • Well it looks like the contact information being provided is the REAL corporate office and not a scammer trying to disguise themselves as TextBroker.

  4. Dear Eddy,
    Sorry to be a bother. I checked on several forum sites regarding TextBroker asking for a copy of my driver’s license. All I found were people who were citizens of the U.S. and living abroad or people with multiple citizenships. I am neither. I do, and always have, lived in the U.S. I really want to write for TextBroker, but their request of my driver’s license seems very strange to me as there was nothing in my application that would indicate I lived anywhere other than the U.S. I’m just an old mid-west grandma trying to make a bit of money – without having someone steal my identity in the process. Thank you.

    • I posted your question on my facebook fanpage here: http://www.facebook.com/workathomenoscams/posts/390304007678790 I know a few people that work with textbroker hang out there. So hopefully they’ll come here to chime in or share a comment on my fanpage. I just know Textbroker is a legitimate company but sometimes scammers pretend to be legitimate companies and email people. Was the email you received have a from address from textbroker.com or was it a free address like yahoo, gmail, etc?

  5. Hi Louise,
    I think my assistant discussed this with you already. But I know textbroker is a legitimate company that many use. But I don’t remember reading anything about having to email back any driver’s license. You might want to search around to see if anyone else has experienced this.

  6. Books, the favorite past time of all DragonSpirits! On Draconis 🙂
    You know who. Be Blessed a lot

  7. Hello Eddy,
    I signed up with TextBroker a few weeks ago. After signing up I had trouble logging in so I emailed them. They emailed back that I needed to scan my driver license with the number blocked out and send the scan to them to prove my U.S. citizenship. Is this right? Should I do this? It sounds suspicious. Thanks for your help.
