Many of you know that I’ve always taken a stand against the blatant scams that cause so much damage to the beautiful profession of network marketing. It really is no wonder that so many believe MLM is the equivalent of fraud and scam.

Help, my sponsor isn’t active!

On a regular basis I talk with people who became inactive or hardly active ‘because they are under the wrong sponsor’.

‘Help, my sponsor isn’t active’

I don’t want to be the party-pooper, but isn’t it time to wake up and smell the coffee?
Your business starts with YOU. You alone are responsible for its success AND its failure.


multiple percent per day, alleged to be Forex trading

Over and over again HYIP’s pop up, claiming to be generating revenue with YOUR money trading Forex. At the same time promising, and in the beginning actually paying, absurd daily percentages of 2, 3, 4% and more.
Simply logics, common sense and maths will proof to you this is all coming from a very big thumb, appealing to those in desperate search of money.


How To Spot The Red Flags In Online Bizz Opps

Every single day more scams surface, some are blatant scams, others started with the right intentions perhaps, but with a business model that can not last.

I see so many people join these programs, unknowing often that they are setting themselves up for yet another loss of their money.
Not the experienced marketers of these schemes, they don’t know sh*t


Beware network marketers!

Beware uneducated network marketers!

It is shocking and highly concerning to see network marketers promoting a product they are uneducated on.

The world of MLM has turned into a world of pretending to be successful, making claims that are totally untrue and telling people about anything just to make them pull out their credit cards.


Your Mind Is Like A Garden

Your mind is like a garden!

You have a choice in whether or not to till the soil.
You have a choice in what to plant, corn or weeds.
You are in control of the abundance of your harvest.

To Till The Soil

What do you feed your mind with? With hours of brainwashing television or reading books?
With surfing the internet or improving yourself


How do you define leadership?

How do you define leadership?

An interesting question since there seem to be different interpretations going round.

What does Wikipedia say about it?

Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to “lead” or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations.

In network marketing it often seems that anyone enrolling in a business opportunity


Communication, a lost art

Communication, a lost art. It really has become that.

We live in an era where people across the table even text each other. Whatsapp, Viber, Messenger…the number of messages sent on a daily basis worldwide is just insane!!

I really don’t like Whatsapp. The number of notifications of groups I’m in is driving me nuts so I tend to switch of notifications and very often don’t read at all.. until I decide to leave that group. If you have something you think I


Love Or Fear

When observing people’s behavior, I can always see one of two emotions: it’s love or fear.

Any other emotion is just a derivative of one of these.

Anger is an expression of fear.
Hate is an expression of fear.
Kindness is an expression of love.
Helping others is an expression of love.

Not too long ago when people were really rude to me, I felt like defending myself. That is behind me now though.


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 6 How To Identify Scams

If you’ve made the decision to get involved in cryptocurrencies you’ll start looking around on the internet and perhaps talk with people from your network to see if they are doing ‘something’ already.

Now, I realize not everyone is going to appreciate what I’m about to share in this blog post with you. It might very well put the business they are involved with in a negative light. It never is my intention to bash an opportunity or an individual. The only intention


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 5 Mining

In this part we’ll talk about mining of cryptocurrencies. I’ll try to keep it as simple as possible (again, my 82 year Mom should be able to understand it).

For the sake of simplicity, let’s focus on mining of bitcoins.

Bitcoin mining is the process of adding transaction records to Bitcoin’s public ledger of past transactions or blockchain. This ledger of past transactions is called the block chain as it is a chain of blocks.


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 4 Altcoins

Now that you have an understanding of blockchain and bitcoin, it is a logical next step to look at the so called Altcoins.

Basically any cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin is an altcoin.

In the early part of the previous century the automobile was invented. What we saw happening there is similar to what we see with any new invention: the first prototype triggers others to come up with a better version, faster, more gears, other features.


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 3 BitCoin

Bitcoin is the grandfather of cryptocurrencies as we know them today.

Bitcoin in fact is 2 things: a cryptocurrency and a payment system.

It was invented by a programmer or a group of programmers under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. On October 31, 2008 it was introduced to people on a cryptocurrency mailing list. The open source code (software) was released in 2009.


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 2 Blockchain

Blockchain and Blockchain Technology, words that become more and more familiar to us because of usage in various media. However, what it actually is, is a mystery to those who are entirely new to this new digital revolution.

A Blockchain, the technology that is creating Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, is a shared digital ledger, or a continuously updated list of all transactions.


Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Part 1 Introduction

Despite the fact that cryptocurrencies have been around for a few years already, Bitcoin, Altcoins and Block Chain still is like jibberish to many.

Block chain technology will have an even bigger impact on society than the introduction and spreading of the internet has had.

Personally, I can very well remember the days without ‘being online’, without smart phones and apps.


Most Of You Will Fail

Most of you will fail!

Bold statement isn’t it? But it’s true.

As long as you keep looking for the fixed returns, the fixed income, you are looking for something on short term. You lack a long term vision, you lack the understanding of compounding and leverage.

As long as you keep asking for guaranteed income, you’d be better of getting another, better paid job.
