The List Is All About YOUR Money

When they say the money is in the list they are right on the money! The money is in the list but the problem is that most of the time it’s your money and not the other way around. If you think about it, most of the time, the person whose list you’ve just joined doesn’t care about you at all.

It’s like when you used to get those phone calls telling you that they can show you how you can make a couple of thousand dollars a week.

There is an old saying, ‘once bitten twice shy’ so you’ll only ever suck me in once. That being the case I have shied away from lists and had even vowed never to start one of my own. I then wrote a post telling everyone why I, the person who has been shouting to the blogosphere how much he hates lists, decided to start one of his own. Since then my list hasn’t gown all that much, it now sits at a huge 35. It would have been 42 but I have had 7 people unsubscribe, which brings me to this post, why did they…
