Give Yourself A Raise – TODAY!

Give Yourself A Raise – TODAY!

Cord-Cutting

I have to admit, I was blinded so much by what I didn’t have, I couldn’t see what I could have, and how easy it was to get what I wanted. One of the biggest challenges in life is to turn a blind eye to what the masses are doing, they’re chasing, trying to keep up with the Joneses of the world, and we give money way to much power over our¬†lives.

Don’t misunderstand me here, money is a necessary tool, but that’s all it is, a tool.

If you are struggling with making ends meet, paying the bills on time, then let me tell you how to improve your life, and give yourself a raise – TODAY!

Simply cut the cable cord, undo that bundled crap by cancelling your cable TV you’ll save roughly $100 per month, that’s $1200 per year!

We cut the cable cord about a year ago, we knocked of $95 per month, so what do we do for entertainment?

HOW TO CUT THE CORD

Here’s what we did:

– We cut the cord

– Took some of the savings and got the fastest Internet connection available,

– Then bought a ROKU 3 Box – its wireless.

– Bought an indoor Antenna

You see, all that time you spend in front of the TV, it’s putting you in the poor house….you’re going broke not because of how much it cost, but because you’re being lulled into doing nothing, and that will break you every time. What most of us seem to miss is this, almost everything is designed to make you part with the money you do have, all the while you had control and didn’t realize it, you could just say no, and find another solution, like the one I just gave you, a simple one that will change your life.

So give yourself a raise – TODAY! Get off the couch and change the world, you’ll always find time to watch your new ROKU 3 Internet TV access. A life changing experience, some might even call it FREEDOM!

 

Cable TV going, going GONE!

Today the Internet Wins, our family has decided to cut Cable and get our TV online!!!!!! Yep, that’s $65.40 (CDN) that now goes to something else in our budget, maybe an evening out for dessert and a movie, a date night for sure.

The decision was actually very easy, we had a family meeting with our two boys (19 & 22), they looked at us somewhat bewildered, they almost laughed out loud at us when we asked them if they cared whether we had cable TV or not. Sometimes you get nervous bringing up the topic of dropping something you thought everyone wanted. Our youngest son said, we don’t watch TV, we get what we want online through our Media Center Computers.

That was it! No discussion, no fussing, no justifying why we should have it. So, we cut cable TV from our household and we are now using the Internet for yet one more service. I won’t cover all the services available online, I’ll let you do your own research. The truth is, this is going to happen more and more often over the next couple years. The trends show that 30% of all commerce will be done online in the next 2 – 3 years, including Internet TV.

Just this morning there was an announcement that we will be able to make deposits to bank accounts through a company called Banksimple.net via mobile capabilities. Alex Payne left Twitter to co-found Simplebank, this has huge ramifications to commerce online, I am really interested in this movement and will keep a close eye on this company.

Have you considered cutting Cable TV or any other service you feel you can get on the Internet, we don’t rent movies from the local Video store due to free movies online. It’s a matter of time before Cable TV and or any other service like it has to make serious radical changes to their model of control. Control is dead!

Our household is cable free, now I need to find a new toy : )
