Dead End

Hi All,

Hope you're having a great week. This week I'm feeling much better.

Thanks for all the well wishes all of you sent me. Clearly it helped.

Today I want to discuss the bumpy road to achieving success. If you've read this blog long enough, you know I'm constantly pushing you guys to take action on your dreams. You've heard me say you shouldn't let situations, time or people keep you from them if that's what your heart truly desires.

That being said, sometimes the dream path we think was meant for us turns out to be a dead end. Interestingly enough, in real life when many of us are actually driving on a road and faced with a dead end, we just make a u-turn and re-route to find an alternate path. But for some reason when it comes to people's dreams, they just give up on the trip all together.

So why does this happen? Well on a road trip you have decided that you have a destination that MUST be reached. Maybe it's for an event like a wedding, visiting a relative, vacation, etc. Either way you have deemed your destination very important and you plan to reach it come hell or high water.

But strangely a lot of us don't do that with our dreams. We view it as something optional rather than a must do. It's that type of thinking that leads to failure and living a life that you accepted by default rather than chose. If that's not what you want out of life, make your dreams a requirement like you may have done with a job, school, getting married, having kids, etc.

That being said, it's totally okay to re-route your dream path along the way. There is no "cents" in staying on a road filled with dead ends if there are perfectly good exits along the way and other roads you can take to reach your destination. Don't be so hard headed that you're basically driving into a brick wall.

Furthermore if you find yourself lost along the way to your dreams, for God's sake ask for her help or get some sort of navigation (online training, mentors, books, courses, etc). Ladies this really shouldn't be a problem for you. Ya'll tend to have a lot more common sense than us men. Fellas, I know it's like a violation of man law to ask for help when it comes to driving but when you're driving towards your dream, I'm giving you the okay to violate it and get the help you need. When it comes to your dreams you don't want to be wasting your energy or time driving around in circles. As you probably already know from experience, you just get more frustrated!

Well I hope this advice was a helpful and serves as a road map to your dreams. Too often I just see people giving up because they found themselves in a dead end. But I'm just hear to remind you that a dead end doesn't mean the end of the road. Your dreams are a required destination. It may just mean that you need to whip out the navigation & re-route to get there. There is no shame in adjusting the route along the way. Lord knows I have many times before i finally reached the destination I'm at now.

In any event, I hope this resonates well with you. If so, let me here about it below.

Either way enjoy the leads below.

By the way, please feel free to share this page or any of our material with anyone you may think will enjoy them. My assistant recently posted a link to our leads on her facebook page and to her surprise a friend was looking for a job and was happy to learn about this site. So spread the love, you might be helping someone in need with this information.

  1. Great posting and insight!!! Another reason why people stop chasing after theirs dreams is because they forget the WHY. The reason for wanting so badly to accomplish a certain task to get to their final destination – the Goal! Also, they have chosen something that simply isn’t FUN. If something is painful then people will only do it for so long, without seeing positive results before they throw in the towel. This is why MLMs have such a high failure rate. People’s intentions are good but the failure to realize that it will take a lot of work, there’s that bad word, to achieve success eventually is what allows them to easily call it quits. Here’s a related quote,
    “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”-Dale Carnegi

    • Todd,
      That was a great comment! I totally agree with everything you said here. It’s very true. I’m confident you’ve given a lot of people reading this post something to think about.
      Great insight & quote. Thanks for chiming in and I hope to see you doing more of it.

      I’m glad these comments and article is helping you.

  2. @Sam: So you aren’t having any luck making a go of it? It’s easy to blame everything else but yourself. There are true examples of people here who have, including me. I you don’t view what is provided here as merely tools for success you can’t find success. I’ve looked at craigs list too! It helped me to think outside the box and become a success! $24.00 an hour worth of success. I have ideas in the works but they work for me and me alone. This means I have (a job) tailored for me, by me. I look back and laugh at what corporate America tried to make me believe and laugh, ha ha. I have the benefits too. Lots of others here do too! We’re a bunch of idiots making money! Much luck to you thinking out of the box in the near future. We were all where you are today.

  3. Sorry this is so long but I have a lot to say.

    These aren’t real job leads. They are just crap “jobs” posted on Craigslist! This is nothing but another one of those “make money online” blogs recommending survey sites like FusionCash and Global Survey Group. HARDLY work at home jobs.

    I am another success story!!! What’s up with Sam? For a long time I would check on all the leads you gave and read about writing freelance BUT I WOULD NOT APPLY OR JOIN SITES….I would just dream about it. When I lost my job in May, I also lost my health insurance and I have five disabilities! I finally HAD to get serious.

    I already had a master’s degree in counseling but having psychological problems myself, the job did not fit me. I have ALWAYS wanted to be a writer. I would write TONS but never submit. I never had confidence in myself. Well being out of work forces you to step up. At first I was awarded unemployment THEN the *%#@ at my previous job APPEALED it and it stopped!
    I then tried writing on sites where you are paid according to how much your blogs or hubs are read, etc. That did not work for me. I went back to school this past May to work on a masters in fine arts/creative writing – I could probably write without another degree, I just have a problem with self-esteem. After studying all the job opportunities on your site I decided to pay I think it was $24.00 and joined Home Job Stop. There are NO ADS and there are so many places to choose from I had a hard time deciding.

    Last month I saw a site listed on Home Job Stop that wanted people to write about healthy lifestyles, etc. for LIVESTRONG.com (this is the site connected to Lance Armstrong). Home Job Stop clearly explained that you had to apply through Demand Studios but if accepted, you would be writing for LIVESTRONG.com. I applied, had to write an article, and was accepted! Now THIS PART IS VERY IMPORTANT: YOU must thoroughly and carefully read all information and take your time to apply.

    You can also go to Demand Studio without joining Home Job Stop but when you are accepted you are assigned another community to write for, examples are: eHow.com, Answerbag.com, GolfLink, Trails.com. Most of these sites only pay $5.00 to $15.00 for articles. I think they are not as detailed, do not require as much research, etc.

    When I googled Demand Studios, many people said it was a scam. Some writers said that “real writers” should not write for such low pay, yada, yada, yada. Well when you can’t buy groceries and are desperate, you will do what you can to get fast money (like you always say). To me as a beginning writer it is up to me to decide what I want to do. These writers were saying they query big name magazines and write articles for $500 to $700. Well sure, but does everyone understand what is involved with writing like that? First, you have to send a query letter to see if the magazine will even let you write for them. If you have not been published or are not very well known you may not even get the assignment. Writers have told me that all this can take months. In the meantime, they are querying other magazines with either the same article or different ones. I will probably do this one day when I feel more confident but in the meantime, where is the money?

    The people that were complaining did not bother reading all the info on the website to find out you could apply to write for LIVESTRONG and make $25.00 or $30.00 an article. They would say they heard that but wanted to know how to do it. Well you join Eddy’s site and go to Home Job Stop….duh….I am one of the worst about not reading an email in its entirety, but I have learned my lesson. If you don’t you miss A LOT OF INFORMATION.

    So, I found out when I was accepted to LIVESTRONG.com their articles pay $25.00 to $30.00 each! You go to a listing and “claim” an article that you want to write depending on what you know. When I was a counselor, I worked with people with disabilities, especially psychiatric ones. I also have several myself so I am very well informed in these matters. At first you can only choose three articles, you have a week to write them, send them to the copy editors, you either have to rewrite a few corrections or are accepted on the spot, and your money is put into PayPal twice a week.

    After your first three articles are written and accepted (they want to make sure you understand the way they want articles written), you are then able to claim 10 articles each week. The articles only have to be 400 to 500 words, which is not quite two pages. After you have written some you get faster and faster. I will write on all disabilities and/or health conditions I am familiar with, the meds that are used, the organizations for people with disabilities (ADA for example) and anything connected that I am educated on. Therefore, I can now write 10 articles a week for $30.00 a piece for $300.00 a week! And I am not limited to write for Demand Studios. I can query other magazines or write for other websites. My specialty is non-fiction so this works out great. I also enjoy that I don’t have to come up with a title or an idea of what to write about…I can pick it from a list. This makes it even easier.

    I have been to Craig’s list a few times way back but did not like the way it was set up. Since finding you Eddy, this is where I come for all my leads and HONEST information. I want you to know I appreciate you very much for doing all the hard work for me! As I said, I cannot speak for Craig’s list but I can for Eddy’s “list”. I also still work on about 5 or 6 sites such as Inbox Dollars, Send Earnings, My Points, SnapDollars and several more for super easy $30.00 or $40.00 every few months. I am able to buy all my office supplies (especially ink for my printer) from using my points from My Points. I get a gift certificate every few months and use it for my office stuff.

    It’s easy to sit back and criticize. I have a family member that I have tried to help. Gave her Eddy’s site and some others but she will not think “outside the box” and will not get it that a lot of smaller incomes can add up. Now that I have been published, it will be easier for me when asking to write for things off the web, I have experience. Heck, I’ll write 40 small articles a month about what my first master’s degree was about and the job I did for six years to make $1200.00. They are also about to start offering $50.00 to $100.00 for special article projects that require a lot of research. Heck, I love research. I’m on my third degree….I love school so much I wish I could be a professional student…LOL.

    • Shyanne,
      Thanks for sharing your story. It just goes to show what happens when folks take action on some of my recommendations and keep an open mind. I’m so happy that you’re doing well and you were kind enough to share this with us. Hopefully it inspires others.

      Thanks. That was the intention of the post so I’m happy it wasn’t lost on you.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing your experience. It means a lot because I know you were a big skeptic of a lot of my material initially but look at you know. So maybe a person like Sam can turn into another story like yourself. At the end of the day, the purpose of my post was to inspire people and it’s evident that many of you are and continue to succeed. So that’s all that counts. Thanks again!

  4. @Sam:For your information these are not jobs from Craig’s List! I suggest you check your sources before coming in here and spouting off about something you know nothing about. Don’t tell me different because your posting tells all you know absolutely nothing about what is going on with WAH jobs. I work for a work at home company and would challenge you to take on a course with them.

    • Don,
      Thanks for chiming in. But Sam was actually right. Many of the jobs listed are from craigslist. That being said, where he was wrong was that craigslist only lists bad job leads. Like any job resource there are definitely a lot of con artist that misuse a legitimate resource to perpetuate their scams. However what Sam doesn’t know is that we do our best attempt at due diligence to screen these jobs before listing them. The few times that the con artist is clever enough to get through our screening we quickly remove it. I just think Sam has obviously had a lot of poor experiences with craigsist because he lacks the training we have to be able to identify scams. So he’s come to the false conclusion all jobs leads on craigslist are bad. At the end of the day, the rest of us know that you can find some good leads on craigslist and many of you are living proof that when you have a resource like we offer here that screens through it for you, it can lead to some good things. Either way I appreciate you chiming in. But let’s not let someone’s negativity get the best of us. Maybe in time he’ll discover what thousands of others have about this site and how it helps people make money and avoid the scams. Thanks again!

  5. @Krista:

    Hi Krista,

    Just wanted to encourage you! I have an online store that I put up about a year ago. I was really afraid about putting it up and how it would work etc. but it has been wonderful. I make a little bit… it’s not a huge money maker it really depends on what you are selling and the traffic you can get but keep going I’m sure you will realize your dreams!


    • Krista,
      Thanks for coming out the shadows to post a comment. As a fellow lurker myself, I really appreciate it because I know it usually takes a lot for us types to post something. lol

      I applaud you for all the action you’re taking and your positive mindset. I’m confident that you will achieve your dreams. It may not be the easiest path to walk but obviously you know it can happen despite how scary it can be. You keep it up!
      I know you have what it takes to make it happen. I expect to hear updates whenever you feel like chiming in again. lol

      Thanks for chiming in! It always feels good to know that my supporters will always come out and voice their appreciation for what I do. Sam has obviously had some poor experiences with work at home jobs and craigslist and it has caused him to become bitter. Apparently I’ve been pegged to be his emotional punching bag. it’s clear he doesn’t realize that there are legitimate job leads found on sites like craigslist and others but you have to know how to find them. Fortunately we do and we’re able to provide them to folks like you who actually take action on them and succeed. It’s also evident he doesn’t appreciate the concept of multiple streams of income and non-traditional opportunities. But the rest of us know they’re great viable options that can provide some income while trying to land traditional jobs.

      At the end of the day most of the people that visit this site and actually READ it with an open mind make money and/or avoid scams. We can’t really be concerned with close minded folks that are bitter and looking to blame others for their lack of success in this industry. Either way, I appreciate people like you who truly understand what we’re trying to do here and are taking full advantage of it. You’re the only folks i really care about because you’re the only people that I can help help themselves. Unfortunately for those other people, they’ll continue to get more of what they already have which is probably more frustration and a lack of success making money online. Hopefully one day they’ll be able to move pass this negativity and come back here with an open mind and experience the success many of you have. Thanks again Monica.

      Thanks for sharing your experience with Krista. it’s great to see when other members of the site encourage each other! That’s what this is all about. Positive people encouraging others. Love it!

  6. Sam:

    Did you also know that these job leads are legit? Some might pay $9-$13 an hour others will pay alot more. Work at home jobs aren’t easy and if you think they are — then why are you here? Shouldn’t you be… you know…WORKING at home? 😉

    Eddy is doing the best he can and I’m proud of him, he’s been doing this for a year and helped loads of people. What have you been doing? That’s right. Nothing.

    Eddy: Don’t let negative nancies that don’t know anything ruin your day, you have supporters and friends who can vouch for you. Heck you helped me when I was in a tight spot before =) This guy…. I haven’t seen him or heard about him in my life, he sure “knows the system” *rolls eyes*

  7. Well, I guess I have been a lurker on this site long enough. Eddy, you provide invaluable information and motivation – especially for those of us that want to be self-employed.

    I am finally realizing my dream to start an online store and I am terrified (What have I gotten myself into?) and elated (Oh My Gosh – maybe one day I can actually quit my day job!). In addition to my online store I also started two websites and am writing for a Suite101 and Hubpages (pays the grocery bills). My goal is to be self employed by the time my daughter turns 5 so I can walk her to school and walk her home rather than be rushing around at a 9-5 job.

    I have been reading your website for about a year and I am inspired – thank you!

  8. These aren’t real job leads. They are just crap “jobs” posted on Craigslist! This is nothing but another one of those “make money online” blogs recommending survey sites like FusionCash and Global Survey Group. HARDLY work at home jobs.

  9. Spot on once again Eddie! Your advice is one of the reasons this doubting Thomas is on the way to the bank! Just think, a year ago I was going to kick myself for not trusting you. I will never stop, if I can help it, applying these specific words today, that you’ve said over and over again. In the end it supports my other trait, (independent, as a government mule). My husband doesn’t understand it either, he just knows we have to go to a tax adviser for the first time in our lives.

    • Thanks Cathy,
      You’re really a great example of someone who was skeptical of all my advice but finally took a chance and saw some results because of it. It just goes to show when you keep an open mind, good things can happen.
      Don’t worry about your husband, he’ll have a better understanding and appreciation when the checks come in. That’s pretty much how all my doubters seemed to have a better understanding of what I do and why. lol

      Thanks for chiming in. I can’t believe after being on this site so long, you’re still misspelling my name. lol
