There are 3 main reasons why I created Fire My Boss.
- A place for people to rant or tell funny stories about bosses
- Help people find a cure for the common boss
- Help people break their addiction to paychecks
My Boss Is An Idiot!
I’ve had every kind of boss you can imagine over the years. Some of them where great, some of them…… well…… I’m surprised they could operate a door knob to get out of the house everyday! If you have a rant or funny story about your boss or an ex-boss, click on over to the Story section and drop it in the comment box. I’d love to read about it.
Is Commission Cash Code another scam? I’ll explain how this program works and exactly what this “code” is and you can decide for yourself.
Product: Commission Cash Code
Owner: Blake Matthews
Price: $43 (Trying to leave without purchasing? O.K. $23)
Up-Sells: Up-sell #1 $295 Up-sell #2 $297 Up-sell #3 $289
(Every up-sell is offered at a discounted rate if you don’t buy when first viewing the offer)
Over all Rank: 0
The Sales Pitch
There is no better way to show your credibility than to make your sales video from a mansion like this and that is exactly what Blake Matthews does. He takes you inside his home to tell you about the incredible money he is making and how he will teach you to do the same.
He does mention several times that he doesn’t need to sell you anything. However, he does charge for this program to help cover the expenses incurred to administer it. I have heard these types of statements before and I find them to be incredibly condescending!
It’s like saying; “Since I am filthy rich, I could afford to give this to you for free……. I just don’t want to.”
The Counter Offer
If you attempt to leave the sales page without taking him up on his offer, you will see this video. I like what he says at the top of the video. “Take A $20 Bill Out Of My Wallet!” In other words, he will give you $20 off the original purchase price.
So, taking one less $20 bill out of your wallet is the equivalent of him giving you $20 bill huh? I wonder if this guy ever worked for Congress
How Commission Cash Code Works
I look at and review many different make money programs on this site. Most of them are slightly spun rehashes of other similar programs but commission cash code is different than the programs I’ve previously encountered.
The main “product” being offered is a WordPress plugin. So, in order to implement this system, you will need a WordPress website or blog that is getting traffic. (Kind of ironic since many people promoting it tell you to stop chasing traffic!)
First, you will need to open an account with Get Response. You do not get to chose which auto-responder service you use, it must be Get Response. Don’t worry, he will provide you with his affiliate link.
Then when someone opts in to your auto-responder, it not only collects their email address but it hijacks their Facebook profile as well! Once they have opted in, the plugin will post a link to your site on their Facebook wall.
The Viral Effect
In theory, when a link to your site is posted on your subscriber’s wall, a bunch of the people in their network should visit your site and opt in as well. Every time the process is repeated, your traffic increases exponentially.
It’s a nice idea but it is a fairy tail!
People are not going to visit your site in large numbers just because your link is on Facebook and large numbers of visitors are not going to opt in to your site just because it exists!
The up-sells are supposed to give you access to additional codes and further training on how to get the most out of them. What you actually get are sales pitches to buy some of his other products or products created by other marketers like himself.
Yes, you are paying to look at other offers which in turn will show you even more offers! These up-sells are not there to give more value, they are there to give other affiliates incentives to promote the product.
If you bought this “product” and all of the up-sells at the discounted price, you will have spent $604 for a plugin that you could hire someone to code for 1/10 the price!
Blake Matthews has a huge army of affiliates pushing this crap and he even posts leader boards and offers additional cash prizes to top affiliates. It is pretty clear that goal is not to offer value, but to generate massive profits! And that, he does.
The only recommendation I can make is, stay away from commission cash code and any other product promoted by this guy! This plugin is nothing but a gimmick and will not help you earn money.
You can learn to build a real, sustainable and scalable long term business for a lot less than $604 through my #1 recommendation.
Have you been scammed by Commission Cash Code? Are you considering trying this product? I’d be interested to hear your opinions or comments.
I have watched many people agonize over the process of choosing the “right” domain name for their website. Should I use keywords? Can I use my own name? Does it need to make sense? Lots of different questions.
How you choose your domain name depends on what your plans are for the website you’re building.
Here are a few topics I’ll cover on the subject:
- Domain Extensions
- Keyword Focused And (EMD’s)
- Domain Flipping
When I first started looking for ways to make money online back in 2008, I found an attractive looking “get paid to place ads” type of program. It was the fist money making program I happened to find and I have to tell you, I almost bought in! The idea that Fortune 500 companies would pay me to place small ads on their behalf and get paid? Sign me up!
For some reason, I never did purchase that course and having a little more experience in the online business world today, I’m glad I didn’t. I have seen several such programs since then and I have come to learn that they are misleading at best while some are outright scams!
Fortune 500 Companies Need YOU!
I spend a considerable amount of time watching YouTube videos for research purposes. (Not to watch dogs on skateboards) The nature of my research has me looking for internet marketing type videos. Since I always read the comment section, I see certain products being promoted across many YouTube channels. One of the products I saw recently was Survey Egg. That lead me into writing this Survey Egg review.
What Is Survey Egg?
Whenever I research a product, I type the product name in the Google search bar and see what comes up on the first page. From there I will look for the official site. Well, Survey Egg wasn’t anywhere to be found on the first page. So, I typed surveyegg.com to see if that would work.
The result I got (which was later confirmed by further research) was that I was redirected to a site called Get Cash For Surveys.
I was not directed to the official site, but to a hoplink. A hoplink means that it is an affiliate link posted by someone hoping to earn a commission from any sales of this product.
I have tried a few of the more popular free website builders over the years. Not all free websites builders are created equal. So, what is the best free website builder? I’ll not only tell you which one is the best, but also why I believe it is the best free website builder!
If you are looking for a free website builder, chances are you have no previous experience with building websites. (At least that was the case for me when starting out) Due to my lack of experience, I didn’t know one website builder from another. One thing that I have come to learn is that WordPress is the best content management system (CMS) for beginners.
Many pros also use WordPress. In fact 18% (or more) of ALL websites are built with WordPress! One of the reasons I say it is best for beginners is because it requires no coding skills. WordPress also takes care of a lot of the “behind the scenes” things that are important for SEO.
I know people who do quite well with the Wealthy Affiliate training (besides the owners) and I’ve seen many come and go with no results at all. For many people this leads to the question: Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam? This will not be your typical “bait and switch” type article where I try to lure you into my site so I can sell you on Wealthy Affiliate. I just want to offer a little perspective on what is deserving of the “scam” label.
It Didn’t Work For Me So It MUST Be A Scam!
There are many career paths that people take in the offline world that “don’t work” for them. I was a licensed Realtor in Massachusetts for about 6 months and never sold a single property. Once I had exhausted my savings, I knew it was time to get another “real” job.
Most people realize the value of creating a website for their business and for many people, their website is their business. But is it hard to build a website? Today, it isn’t hard at all provided you know which content management system to use and where to to find the proper guidance.

Understanding Content Management Systems
A CMS (content management system) is, as the name suggests, where you will manage, build and edit the content within your website. Not all CMS’s are created equal. Especially when it comes to having control over your website. The site you are on right now was built with WordPress which is the only platform I recommend.
Why I Recommend WordPress
There are several reasons why I recommend WordPress.
1.) It’s easy to find help. There are tons of articles and video tutorials to help you with almost any issue you might face while building a WordPress website.
2.) They’re highly customizable. With thousands of themes and plugins, there is no limit to what you can design with a WordPress site. (Within reason of course) It may take time to get your site to look the way it to, but again there is help out there.
3.) They’re SEO friendly. WordPress themes and plugins are mostly created by internet marketers for internet marketers. That’s why you will find such a diverse range of options when it comes to themes and plugins. WordPress is built for results!
WordPress Vs Other CMS’s
You have likely seen banner ads and even television commercials for other websites builders. Wix and Weebly are a couple that come to mind. One of the reasons that these services are so popular is because of the “drag and drop” features that are available for designing the look of your site. They make it easy but, easy is not always better.
There is a bit more of a learning curve when it comes to WordPress web design but it’s worth learning. Why do I say that? Because Google loves WordPress sites! What is the use in having a great looking website in half the time if the search engines ignore it?
These are some of the reasons why I recommend WordPress for beginners. Of course there are people out there with successful websites that are not built on WordPress. However, they either know how (or they hire people who know how) to write code.
Where Do You Build Your Sites?
Do you have experience building a website on a different CMS? One that doesn’t require you to write code? Are you getting good organic traffic with your site? I’d sure love to hear about it!
Welcome to my Work From Home Today Review!
In this review, I’m going to show you what Work From Home Today offers and why you should keep your money!

Will The Real Price Please Step Forward!
The first thing I wanted to mention was the counter offer and the counter-counter offer that you’ll be hit with when trying to leave their site. I’m sure you’ve seen these before. They will offer you a better deal if you stay and hear them out. Personally, I think that offering different entry fee’s for different people is sleazy. It’s reason enough for me to not get involved with them.
To the right, you can see the sing up form. I love how it says “Enter Your Best Email Here”. They wouldn’t want you using that email address where you have all of your e-junk sent! I also got a kick out of the “Apply Now” button. As if you need to be qualified to give them your money.
What Does Work From Home Today Offer?
First of all, this program doesn’t offer any earth shattering information about making money online. In fact, you will mostly find suggestions that you will see in any of those “top 10″ articles which are free and all over the internet! Here are the “opportunities”:
- Selling photos to stock photo websites
- Online surveys
- Printing and distributing flyers that promote affiliate products
- Advertising on free bulletin boards
I don’t know much about selling your photos online, but I’m sure there are plenty of free, reliable sources to show you exactly how to do that.
As far as surveys go, I am not a big fan of survey or task based sites. If I had to recommend one, it would probably be Swagbucks.
You can make some decent money as a freelancer if you have good marketable skills in the online world. You better be good at your marketing your skills to because it is a very competitive field!
Printing flyers and posting on bulletin boards, well……. you can probably imagine how well that would work. You can advertise a website with printing materials for sure, but an affiliate link? Those are typically long and ugly. And they are too easy to bypass. You are not likely to make enough money to pay for the paper your campaigns are printed on!
Work From Home Today kind of reminds me of a few other products I’ve seen being heavily promoted lately. Sites like atoce.com, panxcash.com and cashema.com. These three site are what I like to call “Clickbank bundlers”. They don’t offer any training, just offers for other products where they will receive a commission if you buy into one of their recommendations.
This program would be a total waste of money. In fact, I can teach you more about making money online on FREE!
What is Kyani? Kyani manufactures and distributes products that cater to the health conscious people who have jumped on the health product bandwagon. The health food industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and Kyani is just one more company who is positioning themselves for a piece.
There are 2 sides to the Kyani business model. The product side and the home based business opportunity side. (Yes, this is an MLM in case you were wondering) In this article, I’ll break down both sides of this business and let you decide.
The Kyani Company
What is the A to Z Cash System? By looking at their sales page, I can tell exactly who they are targeting. They are targeting those who want to make a lot of quick and easy cash. Who wants to work hard for their money? If you just buy the right course, eventually you’ll find the one which reveals the “secrets” to this internet marketing thing right? Let’s see if A to Z Cash System is the one.
Product: A To Z Cash System
Price: $4.95 For The First 3 Days. (They tell you 7 days but they will whack your credit card after 3)
Then, it’s $77 per month plus up-sells, plus hidden fees.
Overall Rank: 0 (Zero!)
The A To Z Cash System Scam
One of the first things you’ll notice on their sales page are the logos for a major newspaper and 3 major television networks. Seems pretty impressive right? (I was impressed the first time I saw it) But, there is a disclaimer at the bottom of the page (the fine print) where they tell you that they are not affiliated or associated with these companies in any way. They have been “mentioned” by these companies.
With enough money, anybody can be mentioned anywhere!
A To Z Cash System Uses Phony Testimonials
Testimonials are way too easy to fake which is why I tend to not pay attention to them. However, if I did want to use testimonials for a product that I created, I would not use stock photo’s that could be found on dozens of other websites. That’s just plain lazy!
Before you can even order the A To Z Cash System, they try to collect your phone number. If you are one of the people who are unfortunate enough to have provided your phone number, you will be contacted by one their charlatans…….. I mean coaches. They will ask questions to learn more about you and your goals.
Then will ask what your available credit line is so they can tailor a coaching program to fit your available credit. I hope I don’t need to explain what a terrible idea this is!
Training And Support
I don’t have personal, first hand experience with A To Z Cash System training (I know people who do) but, if they use methods that are this misleading in their sales page, I can’t see the training being any more honest or trustworthy. I know that they talk about making money on auto-pilot which is a popular buzzword used to get desperate people to mindlessly rip open their wallets and enter their credit card info.
As far as support goes, the phone number they provide is fake and leads nowhere. I have seen this mentioned in several places online. From what I can tell, this product was created for one simple purpose. To turn your money (and credit) into their money leaving you with nothing!
This is not a complete list of negatives and phony claims by any means but I think you get the gist of it. My goal is to save people from being ripped off by unscrupulous snake oil salesmen like the people who put this piece of crap together! Even if you don’t read my #1 recommendation please, don’t fall for this scam!
