A couple of weeks ago I received an invite to the 30 Day Challenge.

What is it?  From their website:

In a nutshell… The Thirty Day Challenge is about making your first $10 online. For a full 30 days we are going to be showing you exactly how to start your own Internet business and generate your first income online without spending a dime.

That’s right, this is going to cost zip, diddly, nothing, nada, ziltch. The entire training program is free, and you won’t have to spend a thing to get your business started and begin making money. No credit card required.

Let me start by saying I think their heart is in the right place.  I think they have good intentions, but I have always felt in the back of my mind that something just isn’t right.

The pre-season has a few online tutorials that shows how and why you should use twitter and other Social Media type applications.

Not totally inspiring…  Just how am I going to make my $10 online???  How will twitter help me?

The site is run by Ed Dale and Dan Raine.  Who is Ed Dale?  No idea.  I’ve never heard of him.  But if you google him, you will get two Google Ads.

Google Ed Dale

One by him: www.IM4Newbies.com

And I can only assume one that is not:  therichjerk.com

UPDATE:  Dan Raine posted a comment.  IM4Newbies is not affiliated with either Ed or himself.  (That opens another really interesting question, but not in this post.)

Like I said, I think Ed’s heart is in the right place, but I feel his program is missing something.

Yesterday they announced “Video Comments on their blog

Lots of people posting “Thanks” and “I hope this works”.

I still have one question – Once we are done all thanking each other and hoping this works, just what is the plan to make $10???

UPDATE:  Just to clarify my position, I certainly am signed up for the 30 Day Challenge and can’t wait to see where it will go.  I think as a concept it as absolutely brilliant and very clever indeed.  My experience so far in the pre-season feels like showing a carpenter how to use arc welder.  I’m the carptenter (+10 years working in I.T.) and I know what an arc welder is.  I haven’t used one before because I haven’t needed to.  I don’t think it would help in my job but hey, I could be wrong.

Either way, I am looking forward to it and am really interested in what the other participants will come up with.

Rock on!
