Left Alone in Stupidity

Written by Virginia Sanders

I watched with envy as my best friend and her husband movedrepparttar last article of furniture out of their cramped apartment ontorepparttar 143045 moving truck. My smile was as fake asrepparttar 143046 fur jacket Pam gave me for Christmas.

I could not understand how she and her husband were able to afford a $500,000 new house while I was barely payingrepparttar 143047 $950.00 rent in my 2br-2ba apartment. I mean they had mentioned investments and an adjustable rate mortgage but I wasn’t paying attention. Who makes investments while living in an apartment complex.

I remember when it all started. Matt, my best friend’s husband purchased a book called “Missed Fortunes” by Douglas Andrews. The book talked about usingrepparttar 143048 equity in your home to become wealthy. I didn’t have a mortgage. The book was big so I put it down within minutes of Matt giving me a copy.

Matt, however, readrepparttar 143049 book day and night, on his breaks at work, at lunch and inrepparttar 143050 evening. Then he bought another book by Robert Kiosaki and startedrepparttar 143051 reading all over again telling me I needed to get a home-based business to decrease my tax liability and make money. Oh no, not that MLM thing, I thought. Overrepparttar 143052 next few months, I watched them smiling, planning running their business overrepparttar 143053 Internet.

I hated Pam today as much as I did when she went to weight-watchers without me and lost 30 lbs (of ugly fat). Can you believe that? I was really jealous. When their business started making a little money, Pam did not want to go shopping atrepparttar 143054 mall anymore. Pam told me she was usingrepparttar 143055 money to form a LLC with some other friends they had met at a business seminar.

“Other friends?” I asked her in my most pitiful tone, “I thought I was your best friend”. “You are, Gina, she said but these are business partners, we are going to buy property together.

EcomExpo - Affiliate Conference

Written by Ratliff J

EcomExpo is a virtual conference. You can attend from anywhere with a high speed connection. Everything is done online so there are no travel expenses or hotel expenses like a regular conference.

As an attendee atrepparttar Ecomexpo in Febuary 2005, I was quite satisfied withrepparttar 142775 conference in general. There were lots of affiliates there, as well as Exhibitors. It really does "feel" like a true conference. The next EcomExpo is in October, and I plan on being an exhibitor at that one.

People have asked me if it is worth it. Well, I say it is well worthrepparttar 142776 price of admission. If you just take away one small tip (and you will get many tips) it pays for itself quickly.
