You Really Want to Help the Poor? Get Rich!

The poor in America and elsewhere in the world require aid from people with better means. A lot of times, these means are taken by governments in the form of taxes that are meant to help these people in need. But often times, only a small percentage of revenue generated from taxes actually make it to the people who need it most. That is where charities come in, allowing people with means to personally target their vast donations to the causes about which they are passionate.

Moreover, taxes collected by government for means of supporting welfare and other entitlement programs use a method of force to move money earned by the productive sector of the economy to the unproductive sector. Acting in opposite, charitable donations are an act of free will, where one or more people actively and consciously give of their income to those in need in order to provide essentials or to give the lift needed to become a more productive member of this economy.

Even though over 75% of all our taxes are paid by only 1% of our citizens, the tax revenue received for the express purpose of helping others greatly pales in comparison to the voluntary philanthropy of the wealthy 1%. And as stated earlier, these charitable funds are specifically targeted to a needy organizations, hospitals, or other causes, allowing the money given to actually be used by the recipients, instead of wasted in bureaucracy.

Therefore, if you really care about helping the poor, get rich! Stop relying on your tax dollars to go the the people who need it most. Once you build your wealth, you can allocate your desired amounts to help those you wish to help.

How do you get rich?

Well, first you need to think differently. There are two economic systems in America, the "wage" system and the "profit" system. Outside professional athletes and senior corporate executives, no one ever gets rich from the "wage" system. It is within the "profit" system that all the true wealth in America and around the world is made. Owning your own business is the key to success, and the key to your ability to help uplift the poor.

The kind of business that is right for you depends on your personality, characteristics, and work habits. Also, you need to decide if you want to own a business to do part time while you work in your career or profession, or you can commit to being a full time entrepreneur. There are endless choices, but do not get overwhelmed. Out of all the types of businesses, including brick and mortar retail shops, franchises, and service related businesses, and internet based businesses, it is the internet business that allows for the greatest return on investment.

Brick and mortar franchises cost over $500,000 to start and you are not in profit for 3 to 4 years. There are also employees to deal with, not to mention rent and insurance, and can only operate during certain limited hours. Internet businesses have little startup costs, are in profit within a few months, have incredible growth the first year, and have no employees, no space, no rent, no inventory, and no insurance. Plus, if you pick the correct online home based business, you can have it work for you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, targeting over 1.5 billion people in over 150 different countries.

Of course there are scams, pyramid schemes, funnels, multi-level marketing structures, and affiliate programs selling lotions, potions, and pills, but there is an easy way to determine what is right for you as you think about your goals of helping the people in need with a portion of your earnings. You want a business that provides an extensive online training system that takes you from extreme internet novice to expert marketer in a very short period of time. You want a business that specializes in promoting personal branding, where your leadership shines in the forefront instead of a behind-the-scenes company with no vision to help others. You want a business that allows you to start big if you have marketing capital for realizing returns much quicker, but you also want that same business to allow you to start small and use their extensive free and vast social marketing resources to allow you to build your business over time, transitioning from free advertising to paid advertising within 4 to 6 months.
