    Most of you must have heard about the story in the beginning of the book " Rich Dad Poor Dad".

    Story: There was scarcity of water in a village and thus people had to go quite far in order to get water for daily needs. There was a farmer who thought to make money from this situation. He started bringing water for other people of the village at nominal cost. Soon he started getting more and more orders and thus he had to employ his two sons in the business. They kept running whole day to fulfill the order. There was another farmer who believed in smart work. He went outside the village, hired some experts for making a water pipeline and invested good money in the project. Once the project was done, he came back and declared that he will provide the water for half the cost. As a result, the villagers started ordering from the later guy and the first farmer lost all the work.

    Moral: Do not run with baskets but make a pipeline.

    What are you doing currently ?

    Note: I do not remember the story exactly but it does not matters anyway.

    Instead of pipelining, I'm Funneling backlinks.

    Seriously, This post is really motivational and reminded my long term goal which I'm going to start next week which will make me min $50,000+/month. I just downloaded the book by Robert T. Kiyosaki and found some gems! I'll employ the strategies from the book along with my master plan to make even more $$$. Thank you so much for feeding me the right quote at the right time.

    This is definitely a good post. Always make sure you're looking for ways to improve your work and find efficiencies. If you don't, someone else will, then you'll lose all of your business.

    Are you lol-ing because it's too low than what you make or too high?

    If I would have seen that figure few months before, I would have just thought its fantasy. Even today I am not anywhere near to that money but I have realized over the last few months that you can really make as much as you want. Seriously, look at the rich people around you and you will certainly find someone less knowledgeable or efficient than you. I hope you got the point.

    All the best, I also plan to automate my work. I believe that initially for some time one has to run with baskets.

    Rich dad poor dad, richest man in Babylon, 4hourWorkWeek ...etc. etc. are all good, but the one book I have read like 10 times so far that is the most up to date and most "Real" is without a doubt MJ demarco's The Millionaire Fastelane.
