"When you want
something you never had, you have to do something you've never done"
- Dr. Mike Murdock
All this talk about home-based businesses and making
money on the internet does it really work, and if it does, where do I
are entering a new age, called: The age of the Consumer. The best
explanation I could find is from Bill Quains

of the subject. There are literally thousands of internet-based businesses

admin you have to do, the better.
A business that are making use of leverage (that
implies a referral system) and with international exposure (not limited to
only one country).
A business that is relevant, utilizing current trends, fast growing and

Stranger Than Fiction
"Did you ever happen to catch one of those old black and white
monster movies from the early 1950s on late-night TV? - movies
like The Tarantula... Colossal Man...
The monsters would change with each movie, but the plot was
basically the same: An atomic bomb would explode somewhere on the Earth, sending
a mushroom cloud of radioactivity into the air. When the cloud descended,
the radioactivity would cause everything in its path to mutate and grow
1,000 times its normal size.
What's All the Fuss
A few years ago when I was just getting going on the Internet,
a friend of mine described it as "technology looking for a
purpose." At the time I thought he was right. I don't feel that way
anymore. Today I feel about the Internet the same way business people feel
about the fax machine - "How did I ever get along without it?" If
the Internet were nothing more than a way to send e-mail, it would rank as
one of the greatest inventions in history. But it is much more!
The Internet is a library. A phone book. A daily newspaper. A
video arcade. A travel agent. A museum. A bank. A stockbroker. An art
gallery. An encyclopedia. A virtual office. A photo album. A music store. A
video store. A meeting room. A car dealership. A bookstore. A giant mall.
Well, you get the idea.
The Age of the
The most talked about function on the Internet is e-commerce, that is, buying and selling products and
services via the Internet. Fortune magazine calls e-commerce the greatest
boon to consumers since the introduction of the department store at the
turn of the 20th century. Fortune goes on to say that, thanks to the
Internet, the New Millennium will be the "Age of the Consumer."
E-commerce is already big, BIG business, and it's only a baby.
One financial writer compares the evolution of the Internet to a baseball
game. At this point, the Internet is just starting to take pre-game batting
practice. The 9-inning game hasn't even started yet!
Forecasts indicate that e-commerce is making money hand over
first, but the BIG MONEY HASN'T BEEN MADE YET, going from 350 Billion US$
in 2002 to already 1 Trillion US$ in 2005.
Why is e-commerce such a boon for consumers? Two reasons:
Convenience and lower prices. Let's take a moment to discuss each of these.
Shopping is certainly convenient on the Internet, no argument
there. No crowded stores. No traffic jams. No long checkout lanes. Stores
are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a
year. And your order is delivered to your door. It doesn't get any more
convenient than that.
As for lower prices - well, consumers are definitely in the
Internet's driver seat! Here's why: By its very nature, the Internet is
fast, vast, and efficient. It's a whole lot cheaper to open and operate a
"clicks and mortar" cybershop than it
is to build and operate a "bricks and mortar" traditional store.
Plus e-commerce sites eliminate the middlemen. Those savings get passed on
to consumers. The result is the Age of the Consumer - or so would it seem!
Age of the Consumer?... Or Age of the Producer?
Put on your thinking cap for a moment. At the end of the day, what
are all these e-commerce sites in business for? To make a profit, correct?
At first glance it may seem like they're doing you a favor selling you
merchandise at discount.
But what looks like the Age of the Consumer is actually the
Age of the Producer! You see, in the Age of the Producer, consumers pay
lower prices in the short run. But in the long run, it's the producers who
come out ahead because they're creating more assets while consumers are
creating more liabilities! It's an endless cycle - the producers make money
while the consumers spend money. The producers get richer while the
consumers get poorer. What's wrong with the picture?
The Casino always
Steve Wynn, the CEO of Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas, knows a thing or two about
producers and consumers. Wynn has worked in the gambling industry for four
decades, and during that time his casinos have produced billions of dollars
of profits for owners and investors.
When a reporter asked Wynn which game of chance offered the
best odds in a casino, Wynn smiled and replied, "If you want to make
money in a casino, own one." Why? Because the odds are stacked in
favor of the house. As a result, the casino will always produce wealth
while the gamblers will always consume wealth.
Wynn's sage advice applies not just to people who gamble but
to every consumer. If you want to make money in a store, own one! People
tell themselves they can "save" money when they buy stuff on sale
or at discounts, just like gamblers tell themselves they can make money
playing poker or throwing dice. But in the end, they're just kidding
It doesn't matter whether consumers buy on sale or on-line....
whether they buy at cost or below cost.... they'll never be able to spend
their way to wealth. NEVER! Consumers are just making producers richer! By
definition, consuming means money goes out, instead of coming in. If you
think casinos have the odds in their favor, what about stores? They ALWAYS
Do You Want to Be
the Gorilla or the Banana?
Not long ago I was reading an investment newsletter that
referred to producers as "gorillas" and consumers as
"bananas." The analogy paints a vivid picture, doesn't it? Now I
ask you, what would you rather be - the gorilla or the banana? - the person MAKING the money?.... or the person SPENDING
The simple truth is that the consumers are the bananas and the
stores are the gorillas. Gorillas need bananas to survive. So the gorillas
come up with all kinds of tricks and schemes (they call it marketing) to
attract more bananas. Offering deep discounts is their favorite
"trick." And the bananas fall for it every time. They line up to
get eaten by the gorillas, who get fatter and
fatter and happier and happier.
Meanwhile, the bananas get skinnier and skinnier and more and
more frustrated. They hang from the tree trying to figure out why they
can't get ahead in life. Then a gorilla shouts, "Buy it cheaper over
here!" And the bananas get all exited, jump off the tree and line up
to get eaten all over again.
Wake up and Smell
Attention, all you
consumers! I've got an announcement for you:
Your consumer plan isn't working!
You've been conditioned to believe that you're saving money
when you buy at discount, but all you're really doing is buying liabilities
instead of assets.... working longer hours in order to buy more discounted
merchandise... and piling up credit card debt at a 20%-plus interest rate
so you can keep the producers fat and happy.
Wake up, consumers! You've bought into the wrong plan! And can
you guess who sold you that plan? That's right - the producers! When you
compare the Consumer Plan to the Producer Plan, it's easy to see why the
producers want to keep things just as they are. The chart below tells the
Have a job
Own the company
Deeper in debt
Short term "savings"
Long term wealth
The advent of e-commerce just
magnifies these two plans. On-line consumers are getting all exited because
spending is easier and cheaper than ever before. And on-line producers are
exited because they can grow bigger and fatter with less effort.
In fact, the Internet has spawned a new breed of producers -
the King Kong of commerce! Like the monsters in the black and white
science-fiction movies, the e-cloud has descended on the baby Internet
gorilla, muting him so that he grows faster and bigger than any gorilla who
ever lived! As for the bananas, they're getting smaller and smaller, while
King Kong is getting bigger and bigger - and he's still only a baby!
What's a consumer to do?
Producers enjoy a lot of advantages in life that consumers miss
out on. Like it or not, money has its privileges. As a consumer, here are
some questions you need to ask yourself:
Wouldn't it be
great to live where you wanted to live... instead of where you could
afford? Big producers get to live where they want in grand style. What
Wouldn't it be great to pay cash for a new luxury car every year?... instead of having to finance a used car for five
Wouldn't it be great to send your children away to a top-notch university?... instead of having them live at home while they
attend the local junior collage?
Wouldn't it be great to "retire" from your job and enjoy
financial freedom when you're 35 or 45?... instead
of retiring from your job at 65 and living off a small pension and Social
The truth is, producers get to choose
how they live, while consumers get their life-styles chosen for them. So I
ask you, which would you rather be? A prosperous producer? Or a
Here's the bottom line: If you want to have... and live like
producers live... you have to start thinking and acting like producers
think and act!
The Downside of Becoming a Producer
The question becomes, "How do I become a bigger producer
of wealth?" There are a couple of ways to do that. One is to do what
.001% of the population does and start your own high-profit business from
scratch. It can be done. Sam Walton of Wall-Mart fame did it. And so have
hundreds of other legendary businessmen and women.
But let's face it, for every Sam Walton in the world, there
are millions of us average consumers. The chances of you
or me founding and growing a worldwide chain of discount stores (or setting
up the next Amazon.com on the Internet) is one in a zillion. It
takes millions of dollars... boundless ambition... and rare intelligence to
do what these guys did.
Truth is, you and I have about as
good a chance of becoming the next Michael Jordan as we do of becoming the
next Sam Walton.
Pro-sumer Plan: Producing Wealth by Buying Smarter
But there is a way that 99,999% of people can "have
what producers have" without investing millions. By learning,
practicing, and teaching a system of wealth creation called pro-suming, average people can position themselves to
create above-average income.
Pro-suming is a natural way for
average people to create above-average wealth. Why? Because when we pro-sume, we leverage our skills and abilities as
consumers, and if there's one thing most people are good at, it's at
What we're NOT so good at is producing wealth. However, when
we pro-sume, we partner up with a proven
producer. As pro-sumers, our job is to buy
products and services from the producer and refer those products and
services to people we know. The producer's job is to manufacture,
warehouse, and ship those products.
The producer compensates us by paying us rebates and referral
fees. We compensate the producer by increasing the demand for their
products. It's a win/win. We pro-sumers keep
doing what we're good at. And everybody makes money. What a great
By entering into a pro-sumer
partnership with a producer, we can enjoy all the benifits
of being a producer without incurring any of the liabilities. As pro-sumers, we get to make money while we spend money.
Average people who want to create more wealth for themselves and their
families don't have to stop consuming. They need to start pro-suming!
Pro-suming is a consumer's dream
come true, as evidenced by the chart below comparing the Producer Plan with
the Pro-sumer Plan:
1. No employees
2. Huge overhead
2. Low overhead
3. Offices, distribution
3. Home based business centers
4. Expensive e-Commerce site
4. Computer with Internet
5. Huge advertising budget
5. Word-of-mouth marketing
6. Divide profits with owners
6. Keep all the profits for
The best news is that the Internet
has made it easier than ever for consumers to join the Pro-sumer Revolution. Being a pro-sumer
means directing traffic to your corporate partner, and then teaching others
to do the same. Which means you don't have to sit on the
sideline and watch producers get rich on the e-commerce explosion.
And just think - as an on-line pro-sumer, you can
position yourself to get rich right along with them!"
