The Shiny Penny

Dagmar Miura
Free sample

 Is a single penny worth something? Who would value it? Can you imagine that anyone might think a penny was the most desirable thing in the world to possess? Like all things, value is perceived in the eye of the beholder, and this book was designed to teach our children the value of money, and more importantly, that even the smallest thing can have an enormous impact on many. We all touch people we don’t even know.

Bob Gold made up bedtime stories to tell his children; some were written down, and some forgotten. The Shiny Penny is a Gold family favorite. We hope it will become a favorite in your home too.

9 yr old girl makes millions with one idea - why not you?
15 yr old boy earns $15,000 a month - how about you?
22 yr old college student pays off college debt in one month - what on earth is happening and why aren't more people like you in on it?

This is your time, your Opportunity. There is a world of opportunities out there for you and “trust me” when I say; the time is now!

The economy is changing, while many still proclaim gloom and doom in some parts of the world people are out there, people just like you who are taking advantage of opportunities to make money with the technology that you yourself and millions out there are so familiar with.

For the young and the old, but especially for the young who are born with an apparent inherent understanding of the technology used today – you need to read this.

Many today are still talking about how the economy is struggling, how the youth of this generation are losing hope for a brighter tomorrow. Jobs are hard to come by for young people, there being taken by seniors because most cannot afford to retire. The fear of rising debt and the debt burden that is being placed on the next generation grows daily – but I would like to point out that, things are not that bad. That many are finding interesting new and fun ways of making money, of creating a future for themselves. Many of these entrepreneurial spirits are teens, young adults ranging in age of 13 to 22.

You do not need to be Tech savvy. 

While many are arguing on the news that the government needs to do something about the high rising prices of a college education, one young man paid off his college debt with the simple use of the technology you and I use today on a daily basis. Is he a genius? No. Is he alone in what he is doing? Not at all, there are many others who are doing just as well or even better than this young man.

Ask yourself these questions:

Am I using the technology available to me to its fullest?
Do I know how to use this advancing technology well?
If others are doing it, why can’t I?

Consider this: if you own and use a computer or a smartphone, you are halfway there.
