A "Get Rich" program that works!

Did that get your attention?  That is what I want to talk about today.  Over and over I see questions that start out with the name of a "program" and then asks if it is legit or a scam. 
Think about it, what could it possibly be?  I bet if I wrote an ebook and titled it something like "Secrets of working at home, guaranteed to work!" people would be dumping money into my paypal account faster than I could count it just so they could learn my supposed "secrets". 
I think overall we are a very trusting group of people and we are inundated with this stuff to the point that we believe it!
I was talking to a friend the other day and had to laugh at myself.  I haven't talked to him in awhile and I was telling him how I work from home and that I am happy with the way things have worked out.  At one point I explained that I could go golfing and I was still making money! 
I sounded just like those commercials!  He found it funny too.  He said that was something you always hear about on tv but don't believe. 
I realized I was further enabling these ebook sellers to make more money.  Once my friend tells his other friends that he knows someone who does this, they will be more willing to spend their money!
We want to believe, we drive around our towns and we see the million dollar homes and cars and we have to wonder, "what do those people do?", are THEY the people we see on tv who have nothing more to do than golf, camp and go boating while we are working just to eat?
This all makes us hopeful that there really is a magic formula out there.  Something that will let US play and make money hand over fist and not have to work so hard. 
Now personally I don't know where those people with the million dollar homes work.  I do know that while I am happy with what I make and love what I do, I don't get to live in a million dollar home.  I have a very modest  three bedroom home with one bathroom. 
I also know that there are no magic formulas.  Just because you read it on the internet or see it advertised on tv and even if it has a money back guarantee, the most anyone can tell you is that if you want to work from home you need to start your own business or website, or go into direct sales or work from home FOR someone else who is willing to pay you. 
There are no big secrets or formulas.

You are right Connie. I wish there were some secrets or some formula you could follow to make money. But there isn't. My hubby was making 6 figures last year and the year before. We don't live in a big fancy house eihter. But we have a really nice sports car, and a lot of other really nice expensive things. We just choose not to spend our money on a huge house. Good thing too b/c he got laid off at the begininng of the year.

That's the key. You just never know what can happen and your entire life can change in the blink of an eye. I have already decided even if we won the lottery we would buy a house and pay off the bills but other than that, I think we would live just the same.
