If you really did find a working formula that made you, say $1,000 a week online on average and it kept producing income no matter what, would you want to sell that idea to a bunch of noobs for $47 a pop and expect to retire on the proceeds? No way, man! It does not compute. It does not add up. And it does not make any sense to do that. I certainly don’t go shouting from the rooftops how I make my money online. Hell, I don’t want the competition taking a slice of my pie and neither would anyone who really does make good cash online.

And then who do you turn to when you yourself need some help or advice?

Many of us share what we've learned because we wouldn't be making a living online if someone hadn't freely given of their time and knowledge to help us.

And that's beside the fact that giving to others opens doors of opportunity to the giver.
