98% of earners in the U.S. make linear income. This means that they are trading hours for dollars. This is everyone from the wealthy to the not so wealthy. Consider this, if you make $20 an hour or $200 an hour you still must trade one hard earned hour for that exchange of money. Although the exchange rates for individuals change based off their experience, knowledge, time on the job, education degrees, who they know, etc, the true reality is they are exchanging.  Bondage is defined as; involuntary servitude, subjected to some external power or control, personal subjection to the control of a superior. Now people’s reaction can be well im not controlled, I can quit my job and go elsewhere. Right, elsewhere is what? Another J-O-B (just over broke) to help build someone else's M.B.A (massive bank account) by giving them control over your time.

“Time is Money!” We have all heard it. Of course those who make more on the exchange rate (more money per hour), their time is typically a more precious commodity. I literally have friends on the linear income side of the fence that when I have asked to sit over coffee they have the audacity to say, “What’s this about?" or "What’s in it for me?" or "Remember Shaun, time is money.” Now that is fair I suppose... if I took a salt water fish and put him into non-salt water the longer he is in the fresh water the closer to death he becomes. The longer a linear income person is away form their work the closer to financial death they are. Sucks if you get sick, or heaven forbid want time to enjoy like a vacation.

The Salary Argument

I often hear from business colleagues and friends... “Well Shaun, It’s okay because I am salary.” My thoughts are how sad it is when a slave in bondage doesn’t realize he is a slave in modern day slavery. So you are salary and that is suppose to do what? My experiences show and have proven that you can no longer control your schedule, you now have no overtime (give time for free, blows a hole in the time is money concept), and work until the job is done. How is this ethical, in balance of life, or bringing wellness to any company or employee?

Linear income is nothing more than legalized modern day slavery that has evolved to be the burdensome stronghold for people. The only way to truly escape the bondage is to find residual income. This is being able to do the work once but keep getting paid for it. Imagine if you got paid every time someone cooked dinner, turned on their lights, watched TV, etc? When you are able to leverage yourself against an industry in that way your life truly life changes. 

You can’t have time and money while earning linear income. Think about this. If you want time off you either have to earn it (PTO - paid time off) through giving of time or get it as a sign on bonus or you take the loss and take time off without pay. Or you can make good money, but you are exchanging time for it.

Residual income breaks the chains of bondage because you now can do what you want when you want with the income still coming in to now truly build time and money together.

So the real question is how long are you going to keep doing what you are doing, exchanging time for money, while expecting different results, to someday have time and money? That is called insanity. Our government social security is broke both physically and monetarily. You are screwed if you are banking on that. The reality is if you want it you must make it. If it is meant to be it is up to me!  Most people are gambling in the biggest lottery ever called 40-40-40 Lotto. Give 40 years at 40 hours per week to retire on 40% of their income, this is pitiful!

Many people I know would like to know how to earn residual income, if that is you then click HERE to learn a little more about your options!

A Riddle For You

What 3 things can you do that cost nothing, but could cost you everything?
  • Dream
  • Believe
  • Try


How many people squander their dreams, stop or never even start believing and never commit to trying? Dreaming, believing, and trying are priceless yet costs nothing! What if the payoff of these three elements were HUGE even though it cost nothing? Now imagine the cost of NOT doing these three things, it could cost you, your family, even your future generations!

Life is a One Shot - No Do-Overs

The brilliance in each person is too grand to be ignored, suppressed or aborted! You are too great of a creature created for a masterpiece  Your life, too important, your responsibility, too great to NOT dream, believe, or try! You have a purpose that must be fulfilled. The wakeup check is no one else can fulfill your life masterpiece except for you.

Life mottos: "If it is meant to be then it is up to me!"

If Others Failed to Dream, Believe and Try What Would We Be Without?:
  • Space Travel
  • Computers
  • Cars
  • Televisions
  • Cell Phones
  • iPods, iPads
  • The Internet
  • Airplanes
  • Email
  • Text Messages
  • DVRs
  • Indoor Plumbing
  • So...... much more!

What If The Inventors And Visionaries Above Gave Up Or Never Even Got Started?


When Times Get Tough, Remember This...

Everything that is, ever was, and ever will be, began as a DREAM.

Everything this is, ever was, and ever will be, is because someone had the faith to BELIEVE.

Everything that is, ever was, and ever will be, is because someone had the determination, fortitude and strength to TRY.

My life tomorrow will never be like yesterday because today I choose to Dream, Believe, and Try!
