All of life and business contains opportunity and some business risk. As the pace of change accelerates so too does the opportunity…and the risk in investing and business. Some people will do better in some business in some places. Others will do worse.
Here are some great risks in business investing and life that need to be reduced.
Retirement Risk: The risks are inflation and pension fund destruction through change in markets. This will be bad business for a lot of people that will affect international businesses.
Job Risk: The risks here include businesses that eliminate jobs due to market economics, high energy and food prices or technological changes (machine and computer replaces man).
Health Risk: Health care has become an international business instead of a service of compassion. The risks here are created by an economic social system that encourages stress, poor nutrition, insufficient exercise and imbalanced, high cost medicine.
Legal Risk: The risks here are created by a growing disparity of wealth combined with a mindset that blames others for everything in life and that takes no responsibility for one’s own actions. Plus there are a lot of attorneys out there.
Reason Risk: Every society has a mindset that in some ways is illogical but accepted because “that’s the way it has always been done”. Despite this, the repetition of a wrong by many does not make it right. We are caught in the current of living imbalances because of how everyone around us lives.
Happiness Risk: Every country, state, province, county, canton and society has a system…a rat race of boring busyness that leaves those on the tread mill exhausted, unfulfilled and unhappy…even in apparent success. We become successful but unfulfilled.
Moral Risk: Every society is run by a system. Every system has a pragmatic side encouraging activity that is easy on the system rather than morally correct. This creates peer pressure to live by the system rather than by one’s set of morals.
One way to reduce these risks is to be independent of any one society…to be able to work, live and earn by you own system and moral code. This is a way of life where you are free of the tyranny of any local, social reason.
When one has the ability to live and earn income in more than one place, the opportunity is increased and the risk reduced.
This is why we offer courses on how to have your own international and internet business.
This is also why we have been offering a FREE course created by our friend and reader, Michelle Toole. This course can help you learn how to use the internet to create a freer lifestyle with increased options and reduced risk.
Michelle, was one of our students and has succeeded so well with her own internet business that we are delighted to share what she has learned.
“I have some exciting news. According to outside ranking sources my site; healthy-holistic-living.com is in the TOP 1% of all web sites on the internet today for traffic statistics!
“Simply put my year and half old, little, one man show web site has more traffic coming to it than most web sites on the internet today! You can check out my results at http://results.sitesell-sbi.com (click on Health & Medicine) Thanks to Site Build It, I was able to accomplish this without the expertise of a web master and in a very short period of time!
“To get technical, according to Alexa.com I am in the Top 1% out of 100,000,000 sites but in all actuality there are about 160,000,000 sites but why quibble?
“Of course garysascott.com has been in the Top 1% for quite sometime but I am nipping at your heals………..the little guy strikes again!
“much love Michelle.”
According to the same source, this site www.garyascott.com ranks 35,794 in the United States. Here is a more interesting point. The site ranks 14,864 in Canada, 14,927 in New Zealand and 109,429 in China.
Working from our bedroom, isolated here in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge, or our suite in the Andes, or at our apartment on Ecuador’s Pacific shore or wherever we choose to be, we compete.
This is real freedom to live and earn from the places we choose we want to be and to earn globally…not just in the US, but…Canada…New Zealand…China and more.
Here is Michelle’s 17th lesson that can help you have this freedom as well..
“AdSense, what is it and is it a good fit for your web site?
“What is Google’s AdSense? Good Question……Google’s AdSense is a contextually based ad system.
“What does this mean? It means that Google quickly reads the content of any page that contains its AdSense code, every time someone views that page. Based on that content, Google then supplies ads that are relevant — in context — to the page information. A page about dog grooming will show ads about dog grooming, or pet grooming, or perhaps about pets. It won’t show ads about iPods or travel to Thailand.
“So, to put it simply, Google places content relevant ads on your web site and every time someone clicks on a Google Ad you earn money! How much? Well that depends on your site niche and competition, some sites only make .02 cents per click others make $15.00 per click!
“The AdSense system is very easy to use and a simple way to add another income stream to your business’s bottom line. And it can turn out to be a river of income if you do it right! But you definitely have to determine whether AdSense is right for you, and, if it is, know what you need to do to turn it into a consistent money-maker for your site.
“Should You Participate?
“Participating in Google’s AdSense program requires no long-term contract. Want to stop participating? Simply remove the code from your site and send Google a brief note. There’s absolutely no risk in experimenting. There are very few reasons why one would not want to participate in the AdSense program. In most cases, it’s a true WIN-WIN-WIN situation.
“Even if you aren’t entirely sure the AdSense program is right for your business,
“Google has made it easy to test.
“However, keep in mind that the money you earn depends on the competitiveness of your industry, the number of visitors to your site, the number of impressions, Click-Through Rates and the dollar value of your keywords.
“If you are interested in using AdSense on your site, make sure you are very clear about Google’s program and policies: https://www.google.com/adsense/policies
“There are occasions when AdSense may NOT make sense for your business…
• Do you target a sensitive audience? Are you concerned about the sort of image your business will portray by running ads? If so, test very carefully.
• Is your absolute #1 priority getting your message to your visitors to PREsell high-value returns? For example, are you selling your services to secure tens of thousands of dollars in new client business? Give AdSense a pass, or test very carefully.
• Are the relevant keywords for your site of low value? Are Click-Through Rates low? Depending on the purpose of your site, AdSense may not be worthwhile.
“The bottom line
“Google AdSense can be a great part of your web site monetization plan but make sure that it is right for your site and for your business goals!
“Look for my future articles where we discuss additional monetization options, search engine optimization, incoming links, additional e-zine techniques, link exchange programs and much more…..”
