Eek-onomics Today - Or - Eeking Out A Living In Today`s Eekonomy - The Fickled Finger Of Financial Fate?
People Helping People Or People Scalping People?
Chances are, now that the financial system has had numerous scandals exposed creating distrust, financial manipulation, money games, Ponzi schemes, Wall Street markets, vaporized securities, entrepreneurs who made off with any market; the only thing that trickled down in this eek-onomy is add-on smoke and mirrors, pass-along costs, price gouging of the end consumer. Everybody won but the job holding working class consumer behind business as usual "Just the cost of doing business!" This parallels the parable of the unforgiving servant ( read Matthew 18:21 ). This parable about forgiveness is about sins - using debt forgiveness to illustrate an example.
In Business For Yourself Not By Yourself Or In Business By Yourself Not For Yourself? Where They`re Biting Now?
Where they`re biting now! Hotel conference center seminars pioneered by popular young and budding affiliate marketing experts whose success now markets affiliate marketing training via internet, TV infomercials, as well as the seminars crowded with grey-to-white haired senior citizens and baby boomers, concerned about retirement, looking at the "saturated" affilate marketing business - (the new scammees)! Seems in this technology age that more of this happens due to being obsolete. On the other hand, the above demographic provides the targeted market to "me too" affiliate marketers capitalizing on their expertise to prey on underskilled-in-technology, desperate, retirement-age Americans. One good thing about this as far as looking back at the good old days goes; networking or multi-level marketing is vindicated! For boomers and seniors who are behind the affiliate marketing curve, whether you experienced MLM or not and need another stream of income, you have to go with what you know and do it with "rugged entrpreneurialism"!
Find A Need And Fill It Or Find A Nincompoop And Fleece It?
The baby boomer generation is still mostly pre-retirement and it`s sad that as they approach retirement age, having paid the bulk of all funds ever paid into social security, it might not be around, like their vaporized portfolios. Michael Dukakis, in one of his speeches warned that if someday it should get bad enough we could all be flipping each other`s burgers. He was right and it cost him! Retirement wasn`t meant to be spent reliving our soda fountain college money jobs! But we still need to eat. If we still need to work then we gotta tie it all together. Life`s parabola is like a rollercoaster, slow climb up to reach the peak and then it`s downhill fast! The older you get the harder it gets to do all over, and worse, at 3rd world wages.

Hoarding, Stockpiling, Or Stocking Inventory?
Start this now. It`s not hoarding investing in food, stockpiling is a better word in that you`re building your "unlimited" fair share whereas hoarding is taking more than your fair share. Stockpiling begets criticism as well but when you invest in food inventories you`ll kill 2 birds with one stone as your stockpile is more than a personal supply investment, it`s a business inventory! Better still, a business online beats fighting in line over the last item on the shelf, as likely will happen. This is where that once poo-pooed business model, (the pre-internet) MLM or network marketing industry is finally vindicated. Better still, with internet, your nutritional food/supplement business provides a replicated website to send customers and potential associates to order from, saving storing an inventory of more than you would use over time, remembering to rotate stock, keeping in mind the happy inventory balance of never running out of product due to supply shortages while always an inventory which if the "authorities" come along to take what they believe you`re hoarding (as in a scene from one of those "left behind" videos), remember it`s inventory! So, put a little each month in your rainy day reserve pantry. What if MLM scoffers to this day poo-poo network marketing? Cases for MLM prove it`s the last caboose! Don`t be the last one in! Make sure you`re "flipping more burgers" than you`re getting flipped! (a pun to ponder). This is the economy that Mike Dukakis` burger flipping case is tweaked as the entrepreneurial age nutritional food supplement internet-work-marketed lifeboat. Start a following. To your total well-being, prepare for the coming food shortage without hoarding and food storage without stockpiling, by supplementing or replacing a job with residual income.
