Just Over Broke

The Future is YOURS.

Interesting idea, right? Is that possible?

Does yours  look Murky or Bright?

We are taught by teachers and parents that we learn, get a job, struggle for years to become independent, have our own place, continue the struggle until eventually it’s not so much of a struggle.

Shouldn’t we be taught that the world is there to explore and horizons there to be expanded. We should be saying, I can, not I can’t, or, I will have a go, I will try. Think outside the box, life is more exciting that way.

It’s time to push back the narrow walls defining your life and open it up to new experiences, a new way of working and living.

What does J.O.B mean?

I have often heard people say it means Just Over Broke! 

Hamster wheel. Just Over Broke

Is that really the best way to live? Do we really want to spend our whole lives on a treadmill, just about keeping our heads above water financially? Never quite having enough to live the life we want without going into debt.

Maybe you are in debt, the wage never being quite enough for basic expenses. Then you have newspapers, TV and social media online constantly telling you that life is about meals out, holidays and long weekends away. If you fall into the trap of believing it, you end up in debt that makes the struggle even harder.

It’s like a never ending treadmill or rather, more like a hamster wheel.

SO, why are you here?

Because you are tired of the never ending hamster wheel I suspect.

Is there really a better way? YES there is! Can you really earn enough to give up the job you are tired of? The one where no matter what you do, you are never appreciated. The one where the more you do the less you are thought of. The one that never pays enough so you are trapped in the endless barely surviving mode.

The Just Over Broke mode

Now you are searching. Maybe just started or maybe you have been looking for a while.

If you have been looking for a while you will have seen the endless ‘systems’ talked about on video’s showing either a big house and sports car, or a beach scene with someone on a laptop.

They look tempting those offers. Many say you will start earning within a few days. So you start thinking that yes it’s a big outlay but you could make that back within a couple of weeks. Maybe you did do that and lost your money, hopefully you didn’t.

So what can you do?

There are choices.

Figure leaning on a question mark.

Making something to sell such as crafts.

For this you need to either set up shop on a big site, have your own website to sell from or some people sell direct from Facebook and or other Social Media.

I have done this for years.

It takes time to set up a shop with all the photos, writing the listings etc but once that’s done, if you are selling the same things you can copy the listings and adjust accordingly so that gets easier. You need time to advertise on social media to keep the orders flowing in. And it can take a few years to get established and selling well.

Many also do craft markets in their local area to increase sales. Pricing is very important to ensure you earn enough for time and materials used.

What else is there?

Selling products you buy in bulk to sell on via a shop on a big or website as above. Many people do this and earn a decent wage once established. You do need to have space to store the stock though.

If you don’t have storage space then Drop shipping is another option. Finding a wholesaler with products you are happy to sell via a website. It helps to write blog posts about the products and many experienced drop shippers suggest buying and testing products first to ensure the quality. That of course is a personal choice, plus if you aim to sell a large array of products, it could get expensive.

There are sites where you can do freelance writing. I haven’t ever done this but apparently it doesn’t pay that well or you would need to be doing it a while to get better paid I imagine.

There are jobs online doing research, paid surveys,  tutoring, product testing and more. If you google online jobs there are sites you can sign up to and find out more.

Then there is affiliate marketing which I also do.

Are you ready to stop being J.O.B?

This is a good time to be going into business online. More people than ever are working from home, whether for a company or for themselves.


The currentJust Over Broke 1 world population is 7.7 billion people.It’s fascinating to see the numbers changing. See HERE for the Live Numbers!

There were 4.39 billion internet users  in January 2019 and they are increasing constantly.

This was a 9 percent increase of  366 million since January 2018. I suspect it may be a bigger increase by January 2020.

There were 3.48 billion social media users in January 2019. The worldwide total had grown by 288 million, 9 percent again, since January 2018. Again, the figures continue to increase.

As you can see the expansion rates are phenomenal. Internet users are constantly increasing which means more customers.

There was an estimated 1.92 billion global digital buyers in 2019. I expect that figure has grown now we are in November 2019.  That’s a massive amount of potential customers that just keeps right on growing.

Which do I recommend?

At this point it depends what you want to do. Are you ready to build a business?

Whichever direction you decide to take for a business I would recommend  Wealthy Affiliate without hesitation.

Just for the training alone it’s worth it, especially the Premium membership. Without Premium, free version, you get training and learn to build a website and much more, 10 modules in all. Plus 2 websites hosted on the WA site.

With Premium you get 50 websites, 25 can be domain names, all hosting is in the price too. Site Support is 24/7. Community members come from all over the world so there are always many people to answer questions and chat to. The level of community support is phenomenal. The training is excellent and longer term members create new training for anyone who want’s to learn more about any given subject. There are so many advantages to going Premium.

I always advise that anyone considering this should sign up to the free version first. No credit oe debit card needed. Go in, have a look around and build that first website.

That is a definite thrill. I had never ventured into WordPress territory because it looked so complicated yet I managed it and was amazed how quickly I had a basic website up and running, ready to be improved the way I wanted it.

Ready to try it?

Free starter Mebership to Wealthy Affiliate.

If so go and sign up for the free version. If you love it or want to know more, there is usually the first month at half the monthly price.

Don’t jump into the full price monthly or yearly though as on Black Friday, 29th November 2019, Wealthy Affiliate is having it’s yearly offer of $299.00.

Once bought at this price you get to stay at that amount for as long as you are a member. Plus there are added bonuses gained with buying at that time. If you want to know more check it out HERE!


What do you think are you ready to give it a go, to take charge of your life and future? If so, I will see you in there.

Be quick if you want to take the leap as changes are afoot.

  1. The society has taught us what has never profited us in good ways enough: go to school, struggle to get a job, struggle struggle, struggle and probably get fired.

    I don’t want to work for anyone. I want to be my own boss. I know it will take some time and a lot of hardwork, I’m committed to it.

    I have decided to have an online business…

    • Thank you for commenting Barry. 

      Yes we are taught that we should follow the tried and tested trail of working for someone else without any thought of encouraging any other direction.

      I agree it’s much better to be working hard to benefit yourself than someone else. Being committed gives a greater chance of success.

      Wishing you great success.

  2. Thank you very much for the compilation of such up to date facts and figures on global population and internet usage – it’s very relevant and timely.  Will you be keeping that up to date for everyone on this blog on an ongoing basis?  I do agree that Affiliate Marketing / online marketing is the certain wave of the future especially for those wishing to enable themselves in building an income and doing so working from home…or from wherever they wish to work.  

    I commend you for not making unrealistic promises of how quickly and easily people can make money online.  that’s just not realistic of course.  It takes some time and effort to build a legitimate, sustainable business, but it’s all worth it.  

    In my opinion and experience, Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome organization and resource for literally anyone to learn to earn money online so I couldn’t agree more with you!  

    • Thank you for your thoughtful comments and question John. 

      Occasionally people ask if its still possible to earn online because so many are doing the same thing. At that point it’s good to have the statistics to show how online usage is growing. I will ad updated figures in future blog posts when it seems relevant.

      I must admit that when I started I wondered if there would be a few big companies that we  were all in competition for. I had no idea of the huge amount of companies wanting and needing our services. 

      I prefer to be honest about the time it takes and the hard work so people know and are prepared.

      I think Wealthy Affiliate is brilliant with amazing resources too. I freely admit to being biased.

  3. I really like the way the internet operates nowadays because it has made it easy for everyone to have their own piece or success in online businesses. 

    Being J.O.B is sometimes the result of the environment we are brought up in and stay in and sometimes because of our own ignorance to opportunities that are available. 

    I also recommend Wealthy Affiliate, I’m a member and I can say that they are the best.

    • Thank you for reading and commenting James. It is often the environment as we are taught that the right thing is to get a job and not to have high aspirations. Unless we realise there can be more, we often don’t go looking for opportunities. Many stumble across such things and realise the possibilities by accident and so then look for more information.

      I am glad you too recommend Wealthy Affiliate, it is the best platform that I found in many months of search..
