      Many of us make $$$ from poker(ok some lose $$), some make easy $$. But at the end of the day, we are the ones making the money for ourselves. In other words, we have to be there to generate the income. How many out there actually strive to make $$ outside poker? Building something that in future generates passive income for ourselves? Setting up businesses to owning assets like shares or properties require skills and knowledge beyond what we can acquire from the poker realm.

      My intention of this thread is to start a group for likeminded people that are interested in generating passive $ outside poker and have knowledge to share, or passion to learn and then share. I think a poker forum is a great source for intelligent, committed people; The globalised nature of the community also promises a vastness of perspectives shared, which is also invaluable contribution for a group. I dont have a clear plan for the group, but the vison is clear as memtioned above.

      I dont have the credentials to lead, nor do i want to lead.my initiation of the creation of this group is becauae i have yet to see anyone doing the deed. I do see most activities taking place on skype and in this forum.

      This initiation may never takeoff, but please leave a message here if you have an idea about this, or if you are interested, your skype contact.

      i dont think its a good idea just to get random ppl, first you gotta check everybody one by one to see if the person is serious enough, has any plans, is he active, and so on, i'd make a survey if i'd be you just as a test..im its neccesary..alot of ppl around who just talk talk but dont say anything or nothing's true of what they speak..do you have anything in your mind, a business plan, or ur just in the dark searching the light ?:) i have many ideas, add me as friend if u wish..

      invest in business imo, alot more growth potential than real estate, plus you have the option to be as hands on as you want with it.

      Before I started to play poker , I tryed to find different ways to make money. And I would like to join this group on skype so please add me. Skype ID: aljaz-prevolsek

      And what I learned is that poker is the best way to make a stable income is poker. But if you really want to get rich then you just need to sniff out what the best next thing on the web is going to be and invest in it... But the risks are high this way of course :P

      And after some time I found something that just might do it. I will write a little bit about this company here, but I won't post any links and won't even tell you guys what the companys name is, cos then my post would probablly just get delleted by the admin, and I'm hopping it's ok if do it this way. So If you guys read this and are interested please PM me and I will tell you much more about it.

      So this company is planning to build a 3D social network. It's going to be an island of 4.000 km2, and basicly it's supposed to be the next facebook...
      In this 3D village you will be able to buy your own apartment, communicate with your friends , buy items that will be available in out stores (so it's kinda going to be facebook+ebay+much more). A lot of companys will advertise and sell their items in this 3D world. There will even be a quest game and the winner of this game will get 1.000.000$ and so on...
      So there will be something for everyone there, thus the company expects to get a lot of users - profit.

      But what I found most interesting about the whole thing and the reason that I joined the company is that this company isn't looking for venture capital, but it plans to become successfull with the help of it's members and because of this the members will benefit a lot from the company. So if you register you get 2000 real shares of this company for free and 5000 shares for everyone that you reffer to the site.

      So it's a win win deal. The company gets bigger and the share value increases, the company still has most of the shares, but the members also get to have more shares if they reffer more members.
      The company expects to be as big as facebook in 4 years and if this happens every share will be worth 0.57£. For example I have 1.100.000 shares so you do the math.
      For this I never spent a penny, it took me some time to get so much shares, but if the company becomes successfull, which I do belive is possible due to the many revolutionary ideas this company is planning, I will be a rich man. :P

      like I stated before if you are interested in this company PM me and will tell you more about it, I'm also looking forward to other ideas about $ making.

      good to see some buzz, since this group is less then defined, we sure could do with people with lots of ideas. i'm not sure if we could get a pvt sub forum over here to archive the loads of info that can possibly come up in the future(some privilege Team TwiceT has)

      @OZSA: i like your idea of filtering. but i think that everyone should be given a chance to prove his/her worth and allow the group to decide who should be in or out, rather than me do the selection which is far to bias. yes cool that u can share.

      with everyone coming from different backgrounds(esp geographically), there's alot of knowledge to be shared. e.g. in my country, investing in property is a winner(alright like most other places), and if anyone is interested, i can share my local knowledge on the property market.
      or sharing business practices, or certain unique products or services offered here but not offered in your country and you think it can be profitable.
      or local share market tips so on.

      besides geographical, we also have the people from different walks of life, getting exposure to different things. e.g. prevolsek's sharing of this company which is a risk free opportunity to make some gains. these are deals that we may not get exposed too and with the power of a community, everyone benefits.

      basically just loads and loads of knowledge, and opportunities. i'll start the skype group in about 10hours from now. hope to get more interested and powerful people involved.

      Financial freedom FTW.......
