I still do not understand all the levels of ecurrency arbitrage yet but here's a general overview of what I've seen so far.
Level 1 - This is the level that is recommended for everyone to start off with so I followed the directions and did the same. Here's the good thing about Level 1 ...it's 100% risk free because everything here is based upon your time and effort and not about making any investments of any kind.
I like this technique for learning because the last thing I needed was a program that forced me to cough up a big chunk of money to get started. With Level 1, I never pull 1 penny out of my pocket so I never have to worry about risking any money.
The other thing that is good about this technique is that it not only lets you make some money without any risk, it also teaches you a LOT of things that you will use when you move up to Level 2, 3 & 4.
Since all the levels build on each other, it's not like I'm wasting my time on things I'll never use again when I move to the more advanced levels.
Anyhow, I'll be telling you more about these different levels in my upcoming posts.
For now ...Ciao

That's exactly what happened to me last week.
I was "stucker than stuck" and was really starting to feel like a complete idiot. I knew what I wanted to do was probably a common thing that everyone is doing bt I sure couldn't find that link.
And here was a very cool surprise.
I got on the live training call that Paul Jenkins hosts himself! He basically runs a live call for 2 + hours on Wednesday nights and lets every person on the call fire questions off at him.
Some of the questions were really simple (like mine) but a few were really asking some hard core strategic items ...and Paul answered every single question and stayed on the line until the last question was asked.
My question was pretty simple but it was still driving me crazy none the less. Fortunately, Paul Jenkins was able to identify exactly what I was struggling with and told me how to do it over the phone and also identified the exact video I should watch in the e Currency Arbitrage Member's Area.
My take on the whole thing?
Either Paul Jenkins kind of sucks at promoting himself or he's truly trying to help us make some money online.
Here's why I say this; every other business opportunity I ever looked at always bragged about all their "bonuses" they include. But Paul Jenkins doesn't even mention these calls he does for us on the sales page.
Why in the world would he not mention the calls? Seems kind of silly to me, especially from an internet marketer with Paul's level of experience.
Not that I'm complaining, I could still be staring at that computer screen and still be missing that 1 simple link ...I just find it strange that Paul Jenkins offers this amazing benefit but doesn't even mention it on his sales page.
Maybe I need to host a 2 hour Guru training call ...LOL.

The first thing you need to know is that the program is broken down into 4 levels. This seems to be a logical approach since a beginner is obviously going to have different needs than a seasoned veteran.
I consider myself a novice at all this since I've never had any type of onlin e business before in my life.
So I started in Level 1 for a couple reasons:
- Everything is FREE ...so it's literally impossible to lose a penny since you never pull a penny out of your pocket.
- The techniques learned in Level 1 are skills that I will use all the way through Level 4 so it's not like I'm wasting my time and effort.
- Level 1 sets me up with all the ground work for moving up to Level 2 where I put things on auto-pilot.
So what's the down side?
Well, it's all time and effort in Level 1. I make money and risk nothing but I do need to basically sell my time ... kind of like a job I guess.
But that's OK, I look at it as 'on the job training' where I get paid to learn - earn to learn and learn to earn.
So what I did was simply follow each step in the first module of Level 1. Watch a step and do a step ...that's all I do. Anyhow, I was as shocked as anyone when it actually worked. When that email popped into my inbox telling me I just landed $2 ...
...well, I covered that already so read my last post.
I'm planning on sticking with Level 1 for a bit and continue to learn the ropes of eCurrency Arbitrage.

I mean, I spent more this morning on a Venti, extra shot, latte than I earned from my website business today. But I’ll tell you this, I had a warmer feeling on the inside staring at the $2 account balance than I got from sipping a $4.63 coffee.
It’s truly a strange thing to me to be so excited over so little (kind of like my last boyfriend but that’s a whole other story). If someone would offer me a job to work for $2, I would literally laugh in their face but there’s something about the first $2 you earn in your own business that’s really hard to describe.
I used to think it was a little goofy for people to tape their first dollar earned up on the wall of their small business but now I see their point. The meaning behind that dollar far outweighs anything that could possibly be bought or given to you.
Maybe that’s why a paycheck never really feels as good. It pays the bills, puts food on the table but leaves the soul empty. It’s no wonder people keep beating their heads against the corporate wall trying to climb the ladder but never really feel like they’ve made it in life.
So let me tell you this …I may have only earned $2, but for the first time in my working career, I finally feel like I’ve made it.
I can’t wait for my first $10 day!

Having too much fun can be a little painful ...LOL.
Yesterday was a serious amount of good fun. Just what I needed to take my mind off things and blow off some stress.
So while I'm too sore to move off this couch, I'll just lay here and watch the videos. It's about as easy as watching TV but without having to watch the stupid commercials.
Paul Jenkins advises that I watch the videos a minimum of 2 times to fully absorb everything. And the check list provided has 2 check boxes so I guess he means it.
This is new to me so I can see the logic behind this. Some things don't always make sense to me the first time I watch the video so it's really nice to be able to watch the same thing over and over until I understand it.
The controls to watch the videos are also pretty straight forward, just like all the others out there like YouTube, etc. What I do is actually pause the video after each item I need to do. I open 2 browser windows and then have the video in one window and use the other window to do the step I'm being shown ...makes it a lot easier for me.
Anyhow, that's the plan for the day ...lay back, veg out and watch some vids ...right after I grab a few more Advil.

I just wanted to let you know that I forgot to mention that included with the other video / written materials I told you about Thursday, there's also a Member's Area included.
Inside the Member's Area is even more teaching materials. I have not really looked at these yet but it's a nice bonus. I always like getting more than I bargained for!
See ya ...time to go spray some sand

Anyhow, here's my honest opinion of what I've seen so far:
- Videos are well organized into small modules.
- Videos I've watched so far are all very short and cover only 1 or 2 steps so it's easy to follow along.
- The basic concept of the ecurrency arbitrage videos is to "watch a step .. then do a step". Seems like a good plan.
- Video quality is very high. It's obvious these were well thought out and well produced. (I've seen other videos like these where the person seemed to be "winging it" ...not the case here)

the the package.
I was actually surprised that it arrived 2 days after I joined the eCurrency
Arbitrage program. Paul Jenkins shipped it via Priority Mail which I really
appreciate since I want to get going as quickly as possible.
I'm very serious about making a full time income and I sure hope this is the
freedom ticket for me. Like I said Tuesday, I'm really counting on this not to be a scam or ripoff. eCurrency Arbitrage reviews have been really good and I did a ton of research in the 2 weeks before I joined.
Of course, the bottom line is whether I can actually make some money with it!
Anyhow, back to my story, the package arrived today via Priority Mail and I
tore into it right away. Here's what was inside:
- CDs with all the videos - 4 Levels and 1 CD for each level
- Written Book - Printed in full color so it looks very nice compared to
the eBooks I'm used to seeing.
- Quick Start Guide
- Detailed Check List - It has all the steps detailed and neatly organized
- Member's Area Access - Not sure what's in there yet.
- Secret Unannounced Bonus - Not sure what this is either but it's free and it's more than I expected so whatever it is it's more than I expected.
So far I'm impressed ...if the actual online money making techniques inside
the eCurrency Arbitrage videos are as good as the materials package, then I think I'll be in good shape.
Like the old saying goes; "you only get one chance at a 1st impression and my 1st impression is a double thumbs up.
Stay tuned for my next post where I start to actually use the program ...my adventure begins!

I really loved my job and the people I worked with (well, most of them anyhow).
But all of a sudden the managers were spending far more time all meeting together. Day after day they would all disappear to a conference room or an "off site meeting" but nothing was ever discussed afterwards. The smiles were on their faces but looking back I can see they were wearing a mask.
Not that my manager was a bad guy, I learned a lot from him and he's out of work the same as I am. I don't blame him, it's just the way it is. Let's face it, the economy sucks and there's a lot of people just like me and just like my manager, and his manager, and her manager ....all out of work.
>> Last Friday was my last day of work <<
And the thought of interviewing for a new job is really depressing.
So I came back to the website at ecurrency arbitrage and decided I was going to take my life into my own hands and take the plunge.
Was it tough for me to invest $297 when I'm out of work?
Yes ...I'm a little scared but at the same time I feel good, like a giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders because I feel like I have a sense of direction again. I haven't even received the video course yet but I can't help but think I'm finally doing what I want to be doing instead of what I "should" be doing.
Will ecurrency arbitrage be the answer ...I don't know yet ...but I'm optimistic and ready to start.
Join me on this new adventure. Follow along with me and also let me know what you're doing or thinking about doing. If you've tried ecurrency arbitrage then leave a comment and tell me how it worked for you.
