How many times do I read how easy it is to work from home and make money, get rich, make cash and retire, all while sitting on your sofa while watching TV. It constantly amazes me how ‘Get Rich Schemes’ never go out of fashion. Affiliate marketing, Social Leveraging, SEO Traffic, Webspace Advertising but sadly no encyclopaedias, insurance or vacuum cleaners.
The products have changed, the door is no longer wedged open by a trained size 12 shoe, but the aim is the same. Today’s door to door salesmen and women have it so easy. No traipsing around wearing out shoe leather and knuckles bruised from knocking on countless doors in search of a sucker.
All they need is a cheap computer and an internet connection and they can bang on a million doors an hour. Ups the odds of finding the sucker they are in search of and saves a lot on shoes.
It is so often said that the more things change, the more things stay the same. I think this is a perfect example of that truism. The old tried and true trades of selling snake oil, sex and wild dreams have always been the first to adapt to change, and with modern technology, they now change rapidly and often.
Credit where credit is due though. They are a tough breed that never say die.
I am now off to clean their daily handy work from my computer.
