you could have guessed from the domain name, my name is Pieter Pretorius.
I stay in Langebaan with my lovely wife, Elmi and her daughter Cathy.
We enjoy traveling and being in nature as you can see at some
of the trail reports.
most of you, I also worked for a boss years ago. I have been working
for myself for the past 10 years (since May 2000) and I reached
the point where I do not have to work each day to earn my income.
I created multiple streams of passive
income which let the money come in while I am not there.
always ask me what I do for a living. Since this is such a long
answer I decided to write an eBook in which I explain everything
I do to earn a living from the Internet. You can purchase the eBook
.In my eBook I give you 10 years of experience on a plate. I share
all the tools and resources with you. I am confident that this is
the best value for money you will get on the Internet. Everything
in the eBook
can be done from South Africa. I run all of it from Langebaan
and so can you apply all of it from where ever you are in our lovely
country. In my eBook I even show you step by step how to setup your
own money generating web site.
only live once and I believe that while you are doing it, you must
make the most of it. I personally do not see the use of building
wealth throughout your life without enjoying it. What is the use
having wealth when you are to old to enjoy it.
That is why I only
get involved in concepts that can earn me a Passive
Income. I use various systems to create my monthly income, most
of which I can leave for a long time and they will keep on producing
These systems include Google Adsense, affiliate marketing,
fax to email, network marketing, etc. I own various web sites which
I use to run Google and affiliate ads on. On most of my web
sites I use a combination of Google
Adsense and affiliate marketing to generate an income. Both
these methods eliminate the need to get in contact with clients,
which makes it ideal for somebody who would like to tour the world
one day. Some of my money generating web sites are, www.freeforex.net,
www.hilux4x4.co.za , www.freeonlineads.co.za
and also this web site.
Then of course I also play around with share
trading and forex
trading, although not as successful as my Internet business. All the details are in my eBook. ( www.passive-income.co.za
One thing I find hard to understand is that you can
show people what to do, you can give them the recipe and still they
will come up with excuses like:
I do not know how (I also did not
know how, but had a passion to find out, all software packages have
a help file which will show you how. I am a Metallurgical Engineer,
not a web designer, I have not attended one web design course, I
learned it all via internet tips and software help files, that means
that anybody can do it if they really want to)
I do not have time ( I also did not have the time,
that is why I worked until 3 in the mornings to make sure that it
does not stay like that the rest of my life)
I cannot sell anything (When it comes
to the network marketing side, I personally do not like working
with people but if you have a strong enough desire you will make
it work. If it comes to the Google Adsense and Affiliate marketing,
good news, you do not have to sell anything)
It must be scam (Some people are
so pessimistic that they see anything that relates to good news
as a scam, wake up and get a live)
And so we can continue the list. The point I am trying
to make is that your success is determined by your urge to make
a success. If you are really desperately wanting to design a lifestyle
of your choice, you will make a plan, you will
do the not so nice things to do, as long as you reach your goals.
And what if you make a mistake? There are no such
things as mistakes. Maybe slightly bad choices, but they are all
lessons. Without lessons you will not reach the top. We made a milllion
with real estate by end 2006 and lost all of it 6 months later due
to bad investment choices. It still hurts thinking about it, but
I have learned extremely valuable lessons in the process. I now
actually wrote another eBook on that and you can find that at http://www.pietpetoors.com/blog/property-millions
If you are seriously looking for something that can
get you away from your desk and employer, read
my eBook! It is all about choices, you can choose to work for
a boss and making somebody else rich. Or you can choose to create
your own wealth and one day do whatever you feel like doing. This
is not something that will happen overnight, it takes time, but
it is worth it.
I get daily email of people who are begging me to
show them a way to make a quick buck. They lost their jobs or are
in deep trouble and a seeking for a quick fix. As much as hit hurts
to do so I do not have an answer for these people. What I do takes
time to build and there ain't any quick fix. Do not become one of
them, please do not wait untill it is too late. Start something
on the sideline today and make sure that you are earning some kind
of passive income by the time you get fired.
During the years I also found that your success is
not only determined by the business you get involved in. You need
to develop a wealthy mindset before you can become wealthy. You
also need to associate with the right type of people. Look around
you. You will become like the people you associate with every day.
Are they successful, are they what you want to be one day?
Why do you think does most lotto winners loose it
all within a year after they won their millions? It is because they
had the money, but stil had a poor person's mentality. Same with
some of our countries so called "leaders" who line their
pockets with the money destined for the people of our country. They
might have fat bank balances, but they sure as heel are not wealthy.
They of all still have a poor person mentality. There is a huge
difference between being rich and wealthy.
There are various ways to create a suitable wealthy
