    The other day I ran into a BUM . He asked me for some change . If anyone knows me they know I do not give away money to know one . I am the tightest person around .

    But somehow today a bright light went off inside my head . Thanks to FrenchBoys post stating that you have to have this have to have that . I set this up to prove him wrong.

    So I found him and proceeded to talk with the Bum asking him some questions . Believe it or not he was really articulate. I asked him if he would like to earn some money he said he would . I then took him to the library and showed him a technique I use to generate about 50.00 with about 1 or 2 hours work when I work it . The library allows people to have internet access for 3 hours so this is perfect for him .

    Tomorrow we agreed to meet up I helped him do alot of stuff open a checking account start teh prcess of getting a paypal account etc etc etc . So we will see how it works . So if this does work out guess a bum can do soething an established member here can not :0

    I meet with him tomorrow to check on his process to see where he is at and what he is doing . If he does not show up it is not like he is hard to find . I have seen him everyday for the past week .

    Well the overall profit wil be aproximately 50.00 for one or 2 hours work overall . Not work 2 hours and get 50.00 . Should have made that a litle more clear .

    The methods every single one I use are just things I have found here changed to suit my needs . It is not hard to do just read and implement .

    I am starting him off doing craigslist postings . Once he has some money up I will move him upto the bigger things .

    However like the BUM I do think alot of people need a little hand holding . They need to see it work and how it works first hand . They need someone to set everything up for them on the first time around to see how it does what it does.

    IMO If you start him off with methods you have personally tried and tested, and he can just jump right in and reap, then this will highly motivate him since he will actually be profiting without the trial and error :)... This is a good thing of course. His fresh motivation could turn him into a 24/7 money machine. I wish I had a fresh start with a fresh will to work, with a fresh blueprint in front of my face.

    I could use a little hand-holding. :)

    WHOA, I take it back, that sounds wrong...

    I do wanna collaberate with someone... Damnit, motivation is scarce, even with a proven method that works, and gets signups.

    Well, keep us updated on how this bum does, if he keeps it up.

    I have only taught one person how to make money with a BH method I was using. He did it for a couple nights, made $80, then quit like the loser he is. :(

    The homeless folks where you live must be a lot more sane than the homeless folks where I live. This kind of thing would never happen in Philadelphia. In the time it would take you to type in your password to log him in, he'd have stolen your shoelaces, keys, any change in your pocket, and the zipper and buttons from your jeans. Then he'd start screaming, "FLAGA! FLAGANAGTA! NATATATA! ZABIDABIDOO!" or something unintelligible about how we are in the Matrix and you are Agent Smith, just before stabbing you with the business end of a year-old hypo filled with cat urine and the blood of a newly born bird.

    This guy is using this exact same "metaphor" to get subscribers..
    And you literally applied it !
    Can't wait to see how he does..
    ... but I think I'd feel bad if in a few months from now he makes more than I do... lol !

    @ Oldenstylehats Hehehe well this guy is quite sane . He is jsut a little down on his luck and young and unexperinced in the world . He just needs someone is all I think to get that kick back into his step . Or perhaps a kick in the ass to get started .

    @vashtai will keep everyone updated

    @foxandrew well come on someone had to do it eventually . Besides I wanted to prove a point . I probably would feel happy actually if he ended up making more than me .

    For some darn reason I am on an experiment kick .I have been running expereiments all week this week . Getting alot of data and not even sure why .

    But I have refrenced how easy it is to get paid even a bum can do it . I also have seen lots of people in here posting BS about how you need to have this buy that to get started .

    It is all bull and I figured it was time to either put up or shut up on this point .

    So once my new friend starts actually making some cash I do not want to hear anyone say that they need to buy anything to get started have to have a job or anything that even resembles those words .

    Yeah I have thought about doing this, but then my better judgement gets to me and I figure I will probably just get beaten and killed. There's actually a bum here that stands outside of tiger games and chants "eat em up tigers, eat em up", some guys made shits with his face on it and tiger logos and proceeded to market them. Last time I read about it a year or two ago they had sold like $70k in shirts, he also spray painted a hulk fist orange and puts his change cup in there and shakes it around. It's pretty entertaining!

    Here's his site hxxp://www.eatemupdetroit.com/

    p.s. get us pictures of this bum

    Give a man a fish, feed him for a day
    Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime

    I think its awesome that you're helping this guy out! Maybe you could document all the steps you're taking with him and once he's successful do a JV ebook with him ;) "Bum Marketing with a Real Bum"

    Most entertaining thing I have seen all day . Does this gentleman get revenue from these shirts? I bet he probably does not judging from the fact he still stands there with a change cup.

    As far as pics go I will have to ask him if it would be OK . I am a firm believer in anonymity . It is part of a program I am involved in . So it is kind of the key for my success . (believe it or not it works for me). If he consents to me breaking his anonymity I will get some pictures .

    Well I was actually just thinking about the give a man a fish feed him for a day saying you read my mind .

    As far as the JV that is a nice idea . First though i would like to work on him getting enough money to substain himself so he no longer has to be on the streets . Than we will think of co-authoring and JVing an ebook .

    Good lord knows i think I have produced enough garbage out there . what is one more POS ebook that will just sit on someone elses hard drive never to be read or used. Bought to satisfy there need that is it.

    I would rather this though . Once he is stable and productive he can make money helping others become succesful . I also want to work with him on taking and twisting old ideas and making them new.

    Good lord knows there is ways to take old ideas even old ideas posted here and making them new and unique . So that the outcome would be better than the original method . It is all about using your mind. I am not sure of his capabilities on that yet . But I will find out as time goes on .

    I was thinking I'd like to do something like this for someone who posted here who was having some difficulty financially and was raising his toddler son alone.

    The thread was deleted prior to my getting a chance to get in touch with him. I posted a query about him in the Lounge, but got no response.

    In any case, I'm looking forward to learning the outcome of Val's experiment.

    Best,
