Clients called me a "Mercenary with a Camera". I prefer to think of myself as an eccentric renegade.

The 3rd Option – Don’t get a job. Don’t start a business. Do this instead.

The 3rd Option

Don’t get a job. Don’t start a business. Do this instead.

Everybody knows what a job is. No matter whether you have highly specialized skills, or are totally unskilled and doing the most menial of jobs, it’s still a J.O.B., which means “Jackass of the Boss”. You are still an employee, and you’ll always be an employee, no matter how long you have that job, how much money you make, or what level you attain. You are always subservient to the boss. You will always be answering to somebody else. I could never mentally accept being an employee to anybody, for any amount of money, for any benefits. My life is too short to ever feel inferior to anybody.

The first thought that comes into almost everybody’s mind when they want to earn some money is to get a job. But some people feel just like I do and can’t stand the idea of working for someone else, anyone else, for any amount of money. Those people start their own business. There is a downside to starting your own business, and that is most businesses fail.

It’s estimated that 90% of all businesses eventually fail. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 20 percent of small businesses fail within the first year. By the end of the second year, 30 percent of businesses will have failed. By the end of the fifth year, about half will have failed.

Starting a business takes money. Whether you can start a business with little or no money, or it takes hundreds of thousands of dollars that you have go borrow, you still have to have money to live on while your business is getting started and growing enough to live on. It also takes a different set of skills, and experience, to successfully start a new business. Most people don’t have the necessary skills or experience when they first start a business. That’s why most business owners have failed at least once before, but they learned from their mistakes and started another business. Every successful business owner learned the necessary skills and obtained the necessary experience from somewhere, and that somewhere is usually previous failures.

If you do have a successful business it’s not all a bed of roses. You have to deal with local, state and sometimes federal governments to obtain licenses, pay taxes, and obey regulations. You have to deal with employees, both hiring and firing them. You have to find customers, deal with problems, and ultimately take total responsibility for every single aspect of your business. You will never actually own a successful business. A business owns you, and most people can’t handle that, and would prefer to leave all the headaches of a business to somebody else and just accept being an employee.

There is however a third option. Instead of being an employee fo somebody else’s business, or running your own business, there is another choice. And this third option is the choice I make in my life.

Imagine if you have skills that every business needs. But you have skills that can replace 4-5 different employee’s, or vendors, and you can save the business owner a huge amount of money over hiring 4-5 employees or buying services from 4-5 different specialty businesses. Instead of being an employee of that business, or starting your own business and having, you offer to be a partner to the business owner. You provide the business owner with all the different skills that you have, but instead of being an employee, you are treated like a business partner. That is what I do, and you can learn how to do the same. You will never have to be an employee, and you never have any of the headaches of actually owning the business.

No matter what happens in the future, whether it’s another lock-down, another pandemic, inflation, hyper-inflation, deflation, stagflation, cryptocurrency collapses, or cryptocurrency replaces the dollar, U.S. Dollar loses reserve status, massive unemployment, recession, depression, or anything else, one thing will never change. Every business is always going to be looking for more customers. The most valuable skillset to have in the future, no matter what the future turns out to be, is to be able to promote a business. EVERY business desperately needs those skills. And I will show you how you only need to learn the most basic skills to do what I do. You can do everything, as good as any so-called expert can, much faster, and at ZERO-COST!

It’s estimated that 90% of businesses eventually fail, and the main reason most business fails is because they did not have enough customers. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 20 percent of small businesses fail within the first year. By the end of the second year, 30 percent of businesses will have failed. By the end of the fifth year, about half will have failed.

Ask any business owner who the most valuable person in their business is. Almost every small business owner will say that the person who generates business is the most valuable person they have. Knowing how to promote a business is THE single most valuable skill that any business needs. No matter what the business does, no matter what field it is in, the most valuable skill-set that any business needs is knowing how to promote their business.

A business typically does these things to promote their business.

They hire so-called “experts”

  • Advertising Agency
  • Public Relations firm
  • web designer
  • YouTube expert
  • social media expert
  • SEO expert
  • Digital Marketing Agency

 

Then they end up buying ads on EVERY platform that each of their herd of so-called “experts” recommend

  •  newspapers
  •  magazines
  • television
  • radio
  • billboards
  • Google Ads
  • Facebook Ads

 

So-called experts, in any of these fields, attempts to make “their” speciality seem so complicated that nobody, except of course for an “expert” like them, could possibly do it. And then once they have you convinced how complicated what they do is, they always seem to take forever to get anything done. The more billable hours they can charge you, the more money they make. None of these so-called “experts” cares about how profitable your business is. They are only out to make as much profit for themselves as possible. You’re about to learn how simple all of these “complicated” things really are, and how you can do them all yourself, with only the most basic skills.

You, one person, with nothing more than a GoPro and a laptop, can replace ALL of these so-called experts, and save the business a HUGE amount of money. You also prevent the business owner from having to deal with 4-5 (or more) different so-called experts. Do you think a business owner would be interested in talking to you?

Who am I, and why should you listen to me?

  • spent over 40 years making a living behind the camera
  • Specialized in advertising and PR tourism industry, cruise lines and destinations
  • I’ve also completed over 3500 jobs for ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN & Fox News
  • I have produced several outdoor television series.

  • I’m currently retired, and helping a friend promote his businesses

 

But you don’t need to believe me. Check out what I am doing day-by-day helping to build several businesses and also one social organization.

  • several businesses under one business umbrella FulltronAviation.com
  • HillbillySquadron.com, a social organization that I am a member of

 

You can see what I actually do day-to-day, using only a GoPro and a laptop. I build the website, run multiple Youtube channels, and also do all the social media and SEO. I do it all with very basic skills that anyone can easily learn. I will be putting up how-to videos, showing how I do all these things, on my personal Youtube Channel called “Mercenary with a Camera”. I will explain how and why I do everything the way I do, on my blog at DanBaker.com Watch my videos and learn from my blog for FREE!

Don’t think in terms of being an employee, or owning a business of your own, Think as yourself as a partner to a business owner. Every business owner today knows that the internet IS the future, and that they need a website, they need to be on social media, and then need to create content. To most business owners, they do not understand any of these things, and end up hiring several ‘so-called’ experts to do all of these things for them

  • build a website
  • create content
  • do social media
  • buy ads
  • SEO
  • do Public Relations
  • create Advertising

 

And then they spend lots of money buying ads on EVERY platform that EVERY of their “so-called” experts recommends

  • radio
  • TV
  • newspapers
  • magazines
  • Google
  • Facebook

 

One person, who is willing to learn the very basics, can promote ANY business and make it grow. At the same time they also save the business huge amounts of money they would have spent doing conventional marketing. They also save the business owner from having to deal with 4-5 different so-called experts.

If you’re a business owner, or thinking about starting a business, you can learn how to do everything yourself, better, faster and for ZERO-COST. Just watch and see what I am doing, and then learn how as I show you how to do it yourself. What would your life be like if all the money that you would have spent on hiring lots of “so-called” experts and buying huge amounts of ads all went into your retirement account instead? How early could your retire? How wealthy would you be, just from the money that was not wasted needlessly?

If you’re looking for a career with limitless potential, in any field you choose, and you can start with almost no cost, I will show you how to do exactly what I do. You will have no-competition, It’s almost impossible to find anyone who does everything like I do. From a business owners perspective you will be a one-stop shop for everything involved with promoting the business. And if any business would ever want to replace you, they will have to hire 4-5 people, or agencies, to do everything that you do. You will be the most valuable person in any business that you choose to work with.

"Mercenary with a Camera"

Dan started a photography business at 13.  After a winter day that was 18 degrees below zero, he went on vacation to the Florida Keys to warm up, and stayed for 28 years.  He was financially free at 38 and retired. He met a cute blond and fell in lust.  She fell in love (with his stuff),  and they spent money like drunken sailors.  When the money ran out, she ran out, (with her cocaine dealer).  Dan and his camera went back to work, and he retired a second time 48 months later, at age 44.  Then he did everything on his bucket list (except for seeing the Northern Lights).  Then he was bored and went looking for something to do with his time, so he built two airplanes.  After the planes were done he got bored again, so he started this blog, to show you how to communicate with video in today’s world, and become financially free in only a few short years, just like he did.
