    If you have done some surfing around the internet, you will notice that weigt loss is big business.

    Interestingly, "exercise and eat right" doesn't sell nearly as well as:

    "lose weight, quickly and easily!"


    "eat whatever you want and you'll still lose weight!"


    "lose 10 pounds in 2 days without exercise!"

    The truth of the matter is that you can't take a "magic pill" and expect the pounds to disappear, and you can't expect to lose weight eating pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Anyone with half a brain knows that you have to eat right to lose weight, and that weight loss takes time and effort.

    Making money online works the same way. Don't expect to take a "magic pill" and get rich quick overnight. Anyone who is selling you that is a LIAR! Making a significant amount of money online takes both time and effort - don't let anyone tell you anything different!

    I agree, there is no easy way to lose weight unless you fall sick.

    And like losing weight, most people who try to make money online fail as well - sadly. Yes, it's the do it quick, automatic money machine, get rich doing 4 hours of work a week online - magic pill. The only way to make money overnight online or anywhere is to be very very smart or very very lucky - otherwise - just a lot of hard work over time.

    Amen to it all - like Earl Nightingale said " The people that make money work in a mint, the rest of us earn money.."[​IMG]
