Brotherhood Watch: Homeless to Riches
It is very easy to assume and conclude that those with money got there without much effort or obstables. Some people see the lavish lifestyles of actors, singers and businessmen, looking outside in and filled with jealousy and a little bit of hate, certain that an injustice has been made. Like a man who goes fishing without bait, complaining afterwards about how he didn’t catch anything, some people complain stating how unfair life is, doing so without hardwork.
A person really has to sit down and think, contemplating the things that is required to reach success. How far would you go to reach your target? How much are you willing to suffer before reaching your goals? Think hard! To gain success and enjoy it has many obstacles, coming in the form of people and circumstances.
MOST of the rich and wealthy seem to have one thing in common: homelessness. A lot of rich and wealthy people have experienced lack of shelter as well as money that it almost seems like the norm, like something you have to go through to get to the top. To name a few:

He starred in the 2009 film The Blind Side (nominated for Best Picture Oscar) starring Sandra Bullock (winner, Best Actress Oscar) and Quinton Aaron as Oher. Michael Oher was homeless for some time as a teenage.
Sylvester Stallone,Oscar-winning actor and screenwriter; film director-producer for a while slept at the bus station. He once said “I was broke and basically sleeping in the Port Authority bus station for three weeks straight. I read in a trade paper about this film [The Party at Kitty and Studs”, 1970] that was paying $100 a day—for a $100 a day I would wreak havoc. Instead of doing something desperate, I worked for two days for $200 and got myself out of the bus station.”.

Road to Wealth
Robert G Allen is the man that said:
“Send me to any city in America, take away my wallet, Give me $100 for living expenses and in 72 hours I will buy you an excellent property, all with none of my own money.”
The Los Angeles Times took him up on the challenge. They flew him to San Francisco with an L.A. times Reporter. In 57 hours he had purchased 7 properties worth $722,000. Today those assets are worth almost triple that amount.
This led him to writing the number one best seller ‘Multiple Streams of Internet Income: How Ordinary People make Extraordinary Money Online’. Its suffice to say that this very book is what started me off into many ventures in the internet. Robert G Allen can make $24, 000 easy in 24 hours just with the internet. In his book he gives you a step by step guide on how he does it along with many business links he tells you to check out. All the links that he puts down serves a purpose to making money, I suggest you check every link. Each link is created to more links and eventually you’ll come up with an idea (guarantee you).
For the next #1 best seller, he did the St. Louis Challenge. He said:
“Send me to any unemployment line. Let me select someone who is broke, out of work, discouraged. Let me teach him in two day’s time the secrets of wealth. And in 90 days he’ll be back on his feet, with $5,000 cash in the bank, never to set foot in an unemployment line again…”
He chose five of the poorest of the poor people, teaching them how to get rich by real estate in two days. His book ‘The Road to the Wealth’ is the result of this accomplishment.

The first book was on how to make money using the internet (great read, check it out), this second one is how to make money using Real Estate. The book puts everything in a story format, from how it all began, the lessons, step by step examples and calculations, till accomplishment. I suggest that everybody take time to understand all the calculations before they make any moves and to read this book slowly. There is no need to rush but every reason to understand the procedures taken to become an overnight success.
You may be asking if I have used the techniques and strategies of this book. The answer is no not yet, I’m a little stuck on some calculations and have made it a mission to look for a Dr or Professor in mathematics to go through the calculations and examples with me step by step (yes it is that serious, you’ll understand as you read and learn it). Another reason that I haven’t started to proceed stems from the fact that I don’t want my funding to come from the bank. Have been looking and thinking of places to go to partner with (again you’ll understand as you read it).
Anybody that does read it, do leave comments in the comment box as to the best places to go for business men.
Anybody that does read the book and wants to venture it together, cause believe me you’ll get hyped and excited about your new found gem of knowledge and will want to venture with somebody, you can get at me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am fully on board with this business man, Robert G Allen. But please make sure the mathematical parts and calculations are fully understood. Nothing can be done if we don’t get this part right. After that, Robert Allen’s step by step guide requires nothing but a few phone calls to gain Wealth.
Whatever you do, good luck!
