We’d all like to be rich. I’m sure that’s a dream that many of us carry deep within ourselves. The main problem is how to get there.
While reading the classified ads of a national newspaper I had to grin now and then while reading the business opportunities. They have so many ads geared to that dream of becoming rich.
One ad listed a free book on how to get rich without winning the lottery. Imagine that and I’ve wasted all those one dollar bills, once or twice a week on the lottery. Obviously just the purchase of one book could have taken care of that problem immediately.
Another ad said that I could make ten grand in ten days, and I don’t even have to bother selling anything. This ad must be a cousin to losing ten pounds in three days. I just have to wonder what is the rush. I could settle with five grand in twenty days or losing five pounds in one month.
One more ad stated that one can earn 150,000 dollars if they are motivated. That sounds logical. Whoever heard of an unmotivated person making even a small sum. It takes a little motivation to buy a lottery ticket. You know the physical act of getting to the store in order to purchase one.
I especially enjoyed reading where you could make 100,000 a year by just working two hours daily. It would be easy to get rich in that manner by just working a little overtime. Let’s see..four hours daily equals 200,000 dollars or 6 hours daily equals 300,000 dollars and so on and so on.
Last but not least is the ad that read “tired of scams?” The person that took out the ad says he’ll prove that he made 7000 dollars in two weeks. It’s more comforting to know that a particular claim such as this one can be proven.
I just have to wonder how much it will cost me. Isn’t how all these ads that I’ve mentioned up above work? You want to be rich so you send money to one of these ads, but it’s the person who took out the ad, if they’re lucky enough will get enough respone to make them richer.
In reality it won’t be at my expense, but the reading of the ads was well worth the much needed laughter that I acquired from them.
“Except for winning the lottery-
The art of becoming rich is not quite so easy!”
