Marty Floyd also Said “Real Marketing

Real marketing, business processes and service in cyberspace. Call this the best chance for anyone who can grab a computer to go online and start a business from home that is almost guaranteed to make millions.

From my perspective I wanted to provide a good service, at a good price, and make money working from home. I have been a road warrior and I have been an expert out there in the cruel business world. I have been in charge. I have seen a lot of greed, back-biting, out right sabotage, and a general apathy once people get to the level where they make enough money, have enough power, or can use enough people. Some reach the top level where they can have money, power and use people! It really is too bad that the world is like operating this way in many countries. I guess that is why it must have policing and rules.

The strangest part of this whole concept of getting rich while working from home is so far out of sync with what people should be doing that I find I must write something to tell people what I know and what is going on out there in the “byte” world!

There really are some people out there who want to share knowledge like I do, however, there are many more that find something that works and they go copy it, or create a derivative of the original, so they can scam the general population too. My personal research has come up with a figure of over 97 % of the “get your money too, like I did!” crowd are nothing but con artists.

It is like my mom said when I was fairly young and I traded a dime for a nickel because it was bigger “son, you can never take something at face value and believe it is a good deal when the guy giving you the deal is laughing all the way to the bank.” She was indeed a very smart person though she had little schooling and dropped out of school to support her family and let her sister finish school. She was smart enough to hold together a family with five children, a father who was worn out from the war (WWII) while working five and six days a week in a sewing factory. Not to mention she did all the cleaning, cooking and washing until my sisters were old enough to help her. Anyway the point is that she decided to make the family stay together and do what she could to help us know something about God…..and survive.

Now back to the scamming (not spamming) on the Internet. The scam is not new at all. It is just like the old westerns I watched on the babysitter (TV). A lot of the shows had some guy hawking “snake oil” that could cure any ailment and only cost a dime! The point is that everyone wants something to make them feel better and they want the value to boot!

The gist of it all is that I have something to pep you up, cure anything, and I can prove it. I have a witness. I have somebody who was afflicted but now is free from the demons of health and welfare. That is what they all want you to believe or swallow as it were. Point is there is no cure-all, do-all, or fix-all! The only way to do it right is to develop a plan and follow it. Get help when you need it. Find the expert on what ever piece you can’t handle properly!

I am going to make this a whole lot easier for you than it has been for me. You see I started out in the computer business and have come across just about everything in the past 35 years. I met the lady who discovered the term “bug” in the computer. It really was a moth. She also showed me what a nanosecond looked like when she gave me a length of wire that represented how far an electrical current would travel in a nanosecond! I actually programmed plug boards in the old accounting machines. I wrote in assembly language and macro level languages. I also wrote in a business language the lady helped develop call COBOL.

From the meager beginning I saw all the major changes. I saw IBM grow to have more in “unallocated reserves” than the revenue of all the other computer manufacturers put together! Everyone wanted more power and in IBM lingo it was called “more iron”. I had a sign
made up and put on my mainframe. It said succinctly “old blue”. I bought one of the first things called a PC. It was an IBM 5110 and it seemed almost like a dumb terminal. We wrote a few Fortran programs. The thing cost $7200 and I couldn’t get anyone to buy it a year later.

Well a year after that I was working on one “slick” PC. It was a Vector Graphics brand running an operating system called CPM. I programmed in a language called BASIC and really had a hard time with the concept of having to write my own “bubble” sorts to get data in a format that I could print grouped information on reports.
