Dead Broke Is A Lousy Thing To Be.
Dead broke, or skint (as we say in England) is a lousy thing to be. Believe me, I know, because I have been there and worn the t-shirt.
Unless we are born with a silver spoon in our mouths, then most of us are dead broke at some point in our lives. Sometimes it doesn’t last long. But for others its never ending.
I didn’t grow up in a wealthy family, although my parents kept us well clothed and fed and we had family holidays together.
My parents worked hard all their lives to pay the bills and taught my sisters and me to do the same.
When Did I Become Dead Broke?
I wrote about this in my first book, Turning Poverty Into Success, but I’ll let you know a little here.
It was when I became a single parent that I became dead broke. When I was married I used to live in a tied cottage with my then, Farmer husband. We split and I was given a “council house” on a horrible estate with many other single parents. I hadn’t a penny to my name. I was given state handouts to furnish the house, including cutlery to eat with.
Until I got a job, I lived on what was known as income support from the state so money was tight to say the least. This is what I call being dead broke.
Its The Little Things
Yes its the little things that you miss and what most people who have never been dead broke don’t fully understand.
Being terrified you haven’t enough money at the supermarket till to pay for whats in your basket.
Not having a stocked up food cupboard because you can only afford to buy what is absolutely necessary
Having no spare money for clothes, especially if your children need new shoes.
The washing machine breaks down and you can’t afford to repair it.
Worried sick that when the utility bills come in you can’t pay for them
The list can go on and on. This is how dead broke I was when I was a single parent many years ago.
How Do You Change Things?
First of all you have to make your mind up things are going to change. You also have to be determined to make it happen no matter what. Thats what I did.
Nowadays, you have the internet that allows you to learn how to begin earning an income with your own home business. You can do this in a variety of ways, beginning part time, until you are earning enough to do it full time.
There are various opportunities and you need to decide what you want to do. One of the best things in the long term, is to be part of a network marketing opportunity.
Network marketing is an industry where you can earn a residual income that comes in when you sleep.
You have residual bills so why not work towards a residual income to pay for them?
Affiliate marketing where you sell other peoples products and earn a commission is another way of earning an income online.
There are other things you can do but the two above ones are something that I am personally involved in now.
When I was a single parent these opportunities on the internet were not around and so I always had the problems of childcare to worry about. I got out of the poverty trap another way, which you can read in my book.
Now though, I want to show you how you can get out of your dead broke situation by using the internet with your own home business.
Network Marketing and the Opportunities
There are some very good opportunities in network marketing and it all depends where your passions are on what product you choose to be involved with.
For instance, there are companies that sell health and wellness products, make up, anti-aging products, travel and many more.
I chose to be involved in travel because I love the excitement of travel. I think its a “sexy” industry to be a part of.
Many of my friends are passionate about other things, like essential oils and health and wellness. Only you will know what excites you. Its important to choose something you can get excited about.
Its not an easy thing to grow a team, recruiting people to join you. It helps if you actually like the products.
If you find travel ‘sexy” like I do take a look at my product page and see what you think. If you like it then message me at Lynda@lyndakennyonline.com and we can chat. I am ALWAYS looking for passionate and excited people to join me.

Affiliate Marketing Opportunities
There are literally thousands of affiliate products out there that you can sell and earn commissions on. I have tried various ones since I began. Mistakes have been made and in some cases I wasted money as well.
I soon realised that I didn’t know what I needed to know about marketing myself properly. It became clear that when you come into something brand new, you need to get some education. Its the only way to develop your knowledge and your progress.
So I found a marketing platform that teaches you everything you need to know about attraction marketing, using the internet to run your business, blogging etc. At the same time you earn commissions as an affiliate when you introduce and sell it to someone else. Perfect for me and many others.

Being dead broke is not a nice thing to be and if you can find a solution to getting out of it then what I have talked about today might be for you. It might not be. However, I do know many people, including friends that have changed their lives and in some cases, even given up their jobs to do this full time.
You need to be aware its like any other business. It takes hard work and an absolute commitment that you will put your heart and soul into it.
If you are ready to work hard, be smart, invest in your future plus you would rather chat with me first, send an email to Lynda@lyndakennyonline.com and lets arrange to talk. (with no obligations whatsoever)
Whatever you decide, I wish you all the best for the future.
