Entrepreneurialism Looking For A Change In Life

Entrepreneurialism Looking For A Change In Life

Have you ever wondered why so many people are attracted to game shows or the lottery?

Let’s see…

* fabulous wealth
* exciting prizes
* a better life

I’d like to suggest there is something different at work in these get-rich-quick ideas that are heavily linked to our culture at large.

* the potential to be in the spotlight if only for a brief moment in time.
* the underlying hope that there might be a way out of a current job.

When lotto winners are asked what they will do with their winnings many of them will reply, “Quite my job.” This is typically followed by a chuckle that indicates their genuine dissatisfaction with their job.

Is it possible that one of the greatest motivators for game show participation and playing the lotto has to do with job dissatisfaction?

You may think this is a stretch, but if an individual is satisfied with their job they may be less inclined view their present situation in a negative light. Why? Because the life they want is the one they have. They have found a point of contentment and it shows in the way they view their occupation and life in general.

Get-rich-quick ideas have always played on the inherent dissatisfaction many feel in regards to their occupation.

Entrepreneurialism is about more than simply developing a business. It is about moving your life outlook from the dissatisfied column to the satisfied and from discontentment to contentment.

We all want to be comfortable in our own skin. We all want to feel that what we do makes a difference in the lives of others and in our own lives. Yet there are thousands of stories that point out the despair and frustration many feel when they approach mid-life and think of their past work experience as an evidence of failure instead of a motivation to consider something with greater purpose.

Interestingly many of these individuals are learning to look past their personal views of their past life and look forward to discovery using the entrepreneurial spirit.

Statistics indicate an increasing number of mature adults are discovering the potential in entrepreneurialism. This has become an important component in discovering a way out of a present job without winning the lotto and the bonus of finding job satisfaction they have always desired without needing to confront a banker on a game show.

If you can take the time to ask yourself what you would like to do with your time if money and time was no object you might unearth a passion that could be parlayed into a business.

Your ‘moment in the sun’ could be as close as learning what it is you were always supposed to do. Many will settle for a job they don’t like simply because it’s safe and provides an income.

Motivation comes in all shapes and sizes, but one of the best motivations is the discovery of the entrepreneurial spirit.

Don’t be surprised if it changes the direction of your life – and you won’t even need to consider a few lucky numbers.

NY Lottery Results

NY Lottery Results

“You’ve got to be in it to win it.” That’s New York State’s lottery slogan. Unfortunately, many people aren’t really in it when they buy a ticket. They buy it on a whim when the prize looks inviting, and then they never check back to see if they’ve won.

Many people, with the exception of expert lottery players, buy tickets praying for a payout. However, they have no real system for keeping up with things. Life intervenes when they get home, kids are screaming, the spouse needs dinner, they have to work late, and the ticket goes on the back burner. The back burner turns into the forgotten ticket and an unclaimed prize sitting in the junk drawer or in a pants pocket is now their new reality.

The current statistics of Ny lottery winners who have failed to claim their prizes to date in 2007 is in the millions. Winners missed a total 4.84 million in prizes that expired between April 1 and May 31st of 2007, and that statistic is just for prizes that were more than $10,000 each. This fact is according to John Charleson, a New York lottery spokesman. Tracking is less available for smaller prizes, but if this is any indicator, then lottery money is being reabsorbed into the Ny state coffers at record levels, due to unchecked ny lottery results.

In Westchester alone there have been 11 unclaimed prizes of more than $10,000 from various lotto games, Rockland has two unclaimed prizes so far this year, and Putnam has two. All these tickets were bought in the last year were and Lower Hudson Valley has the largest unclaimed prize about to expire in the amount of $250,000. The lottery ticket was sold in Mount Kisco, and if the winner knows about it, how long do you think it would take for them to get to the prize claims office.

Unfortunately, people think their odds of wining are low. The odds of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot are 1 in 175,711,536, and the odds of winning the $250,000 second prize are 1 in 3,904,701. As a result, they give their ticket low priority on keeping up with and checking to see if they’ve won.

What is saddening about these statistics is that people put down their hard earned cash for a chance at a dream, and then through bad memory and bad luck, they win and never realize it.

In New York winners are given 12 months to claim their prizes; after that, the money goes back to the Ny Lottery to create new games. For some, like the unlucky winner who bought a Mega Millions jackpot ticket worth $31 million at Astoria Smokeshop & Convenience in Queens on Aug. 1, 2006, their ticket is now worthless. Can you imagine that poor person when they realize they had $31 million dollars at their disposal for 12 months and never acted to receive it.

Connecticut has a story that is food for thought about the perils of being late turning in your ticket. It concerns this poor guy named Clarence Jackson Jr. He won a jackpot in the amount of $5.8 million dollars in 1996 and turned it in three days late. He spent subsequent years trying to lobby the state legislature to make an exception in his case so that he could get his prize. To date he has never received a penny. That means that all those tickets unclaimed in Westchester, Rockland and Lower Hudson have people facing a similar fate. The above statistics only cover a two month period. While it might not be $5.8 million, money won is still somebody’s money.

Beware The Lottery Scam

Beware The Lottery Scam

UK citizens have already been targeted by unscrupulous con men claiming that they had won the Canadian and Spanish lotteries. Unfortunately, many people fell for the scam and lost thousands of pounds as they responded to more and more telephone calls demanding cash to cover costs before their ‘winnings’ could be released. The cash is sent but the winnings don’t exist.

It appears that things are getting worse instead of better with the UK National Lotto and EuroMillions being targeted along with successful syndicates such as e-Lottery. Also, the scams seem to be getting ever more sophisticated with people being contacted not just via email and telephone calls but by letter and text messaging as well.

These scams succeed because they are run by highly organized criminal gangs who are very professional. Both email and direct mail pieces are very convincing and telephone operators are very confident and reassuring. As always they target the most vulnerable, often the elderly. These people want 2 things:

Your Money
Your identity

So how does the lottery scam work?

THE PITCH:

They offer you something for nothing – such as:

you’ve won a major prize in a draw or a lottery (even though you haven’t entered one)

THE STING

They’ll ask you to:

send money up front – an administration fee or tax, the list is endless but it’s always a ruse to get you to give them money.

give them your bank, credit card or other personal details.

How to avoid becoming a lottery scam victim:

use your common sense! If you didn’t enter a lottery ie buy a ticket up front, you can’t possibly win it.

REMEMBER no legitimate lottery will ask you for any money in order for you to receive winnings.

If in doubt check with the official operators (all of them have warnings about this scam on their sites.

If you have received an email, text, letter or phone call that you believe to be bogus, delete it, throw it away or put the phone down. DO NOT reply in any shape or form. This will only confirm your details and leave you open to further targeting and harrassment. DO NOT be tempted to bank any monies that may have be sent as upfront payment. You will be liable.

NEVER reveal any personal, bank or credit card details.

DO seek advice from family, friends and other professionals.

Call Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06

Lottery scam warning signs include:

The use of hard to trace contact details such as free email addresses (yahoo, hotmail etc) and PO Box numbers.

the approach, whether in writing, by phone, email or text, is unsolicited

A very short time frame in which to respond to claim winnings.

A request for a ‘processing’ or ‘administration’ fee to obtain the winnings.

A request for personal, credit card or bank account details.

They ask you not to tell anyone about the deal.

Always remember that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. However, despite the publicity surrounding the lottery scam it doesn’t seem to be going away.

Use Psychic Powers To Choose Winning Lottery Numbers

Use Psychic Powers To Choose Winning Lottery Numbers

I am often asked by my friends how I managed to win the lottery, and the answer usually surprises them! My win, although not huge by modern standards, was achieved with very little effort, and almost no expense. The secret? Using the psychic powers we all have in order to predict the winning lotto numbers.
The method is simple, and easy to use, and should work just as well for you as it worked for me. After all, there is no monopoly on psychic talents! First, you need to get hold of a plumb weight. This can be a simple piece of lead, or a fancy crystal – it is up to you as the actual material is irrelevant. You will also need some string, some paper, and a pen. Scissors might also come in handy.
Make a pendulum by attaching the plumb weight to the string. Write out all 49 lottery numbers on the paper (tip – try a 7 x 7 ‘grid’ – this will make it easier to cut them out later! i.e. on the first line write 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 on the second write 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 and so on). Cut out the numbers into little squares, and place them face down on a smooth surface – your coffe table, for example. make sure they are well seperated (at least a couple of inches between numbers).
Now you must shuffle up the numbers, so you don’t consciously know which one is which. This is a very important step, so don’t overlook it. Next we are going to ‘dowse’ for the numbers that will win the very next lotto. The basics, of this technique, of course, go way back. When I was a little girl, after the War, I remember a friend of my father’s coming round to dowse for a source of water in the cottage we had just occupied. I watched fascinated as he walked back and forward, with a couple of hazel twigs, until suddenly, they jerked together, and he said “Here”.
When my father and his brothers dug down, sure enough, there was an underground spring, and we built a well there that served us for many years until we left the cottage when I was a teenager.
Back to the pendulum dowsing. Make sure the room is quiet and dark, and that there are no distractions. Hold the plumline over the first number and try to ’empty your mind’ of everything except thoughts of the lottery draw, and the balls coming out of the machine. Don’t think about anything else, just concentrate on the balls. Don’t worry, don’t fret or strain, just ‘be’. The pendulum will in most cases, hang there, swaying gently from side to side. After a minute or so, if the pendulum is simply oscillating like that, move on to the next number. Eventually, you will be holding the pendulum over one of the numbers, and it will start to rotate. This rotation may be clockwise or counter clockwise, but it will definitely be rotation. You can even ‘test’ this if you don’t believe it – move to the side of the table, then try the same piece of paper again. You will get the same rotation (a tip on what to do if your arm gets tired can be found at www.psychicSuperstore.com).
Remove the piece of paper to the side, but DON’T TURN IT OVER YET. Repeat until you have your six ‘picks’ for the draw. Then, and only then can you turn the papers over to see what numbers have been picked for you. A little practise, and you will be amazed at how frequently you start to ‘hit’ winning numbers. Who knows, if your heart is pure, and your intentions are good, you might even win as big as I did!

Winning Euromillions Lottery Prizes Every Week, Without Buying Tickets

Winning Euromillions Lottery Prizes Every Week, Without Buying Tickets

Join a mathematician, internet technology, network marketing, the visionof two business man´s, register it in the Lotteries Council, and the lottery players will win euromillions lottery prizes each and every draw, without buying tickets.

Tom Brodie, with a successful 12 years background in sales, marketing, database development and internet marketing, partnered with Len Fitzgerald, who opened one of the first-ever video rental stores in the UK in1984, founded the e-lottery Syndicate in April 2002.

They thought, since there isn’t a single person in the world, who wouldn’t like to win a fortune in the lottery, why not finding a way, to help as many people as possible, achieving their dreams.

They hired a university Professor of Mathematics, brainstormed how they could achieve their purpose, and ended up with a syndicate system, that boost the odds in advantage of the lottery players. People playing with their syndicate system, will have a significant advantage over the regular player who plays alone. They will have greater possibilities of winning the jackpots, and will win more prizes and money.

Their system allows people from all over the world, to play two of the richest tax free lotteries in the world, the United Kingdom National Lotto, and EuroMillions, the european lottery.

Each syndicate player receives a fixed set of numbers, and due to the syndicate system it’s only necessary to hit one number to receive prizes, in Euromillions.

The advantage of playing in the syndicates is a massive 3600% greater chance of scooping a EuroMillions jackpot! The chances of having any prize jump to only 1 in 10. They applied network marketing to the system, and each member that presents the e-syndicate to five other people, will start playing for free. After that will receive commissions for each additional member, and will receive an additional set of numbers, for free, for each group of new 15 members.

And here is the “trick” for winning euromillions lottery prizes every week, without buying tickets.

In Euromillions, syndicate players receive a fixed set of five numbers, and if only one of the numbers comes out in a draw, a prize is received by the syndicate. Since there are a total of fifty main numbers, from one to fifty, players, who have more than ten sets of numbers will cover the all range of numbers, and in the worst scenario, will match each draw number, from 5 different set of numbers and syndicates, and five prizes will be won.

Bingo – It’s Birth and Beginning

Bingo – It’s Birth and Beginning

The true origin of bingo dates back as far as the mid 16th century and is connected, strangely enough to the unification of Italy in 1530. This unification saw the introduction of a National lottery system, known as “Lo Giuoco del Lotto d’Italia” held each week. Interestingly, this lottery is today a major source of income to the government, contributing over 75 million dollars each year to the budget.
It was the French who developed a passion for “Le Lotto”, as it became known and they adapted their own version of the game that strikes a strong resemblance with today’s version of bingo. Three horizontal and nine vertical rows formed the basis of the card and players would cover their numbers as they were drawn until an entire horizontal row was covered – hence the winner.
Lotto continued to flourish throughout Europe. It was used as an educational tool in Germany to teach children their multiplication tables and even formed the basis of many other games and toys still noticeable in toy stores today. But where and when did Lotto somehow morph into Bingo? Well, the answer lies in what could be described as a compromise – Beano!
Picture the scene. It’s 1929 and a weary and stressed toy salesman by the name of Edwin S. Lowe is driving to Jacksonville, Georgia to prepare for some appointments. Soon after starting his own toy company a year earlier, the market crashed and Mr Lowe’s prospects were looking very bleak indeed.
Before arriving in Jacksonville, Lowe decided to cheer himself up by stopping off at a country carnival, being a night early for his appointments. Only one carnival booth was open and very crowded. The excitement seemed to be generated by a game that was a variation of Lotto, known as Beano. A horseshoe table was covered with numbered cards and beans. Every time a pitchman pulled a wooden disk from an old cigar box and called the number on it, the players reached for a bean and covered the corresponding number on their card, if they had it. When they had totally covered a line, either diagonally, vertically or horizontally, they had to shout Beano! They then received a doll.
Lowe wanted to play, but the game was too popular and no seats were available. What he did notice though was that all the players seemed to be addicted to the game. The pitchman was not able to close and had to eventually chase the players away at 3:00am. The pitchman had apparently picked the game of Lotto in Germany and decided to adapt and bring it to the United States and to rename it Beano. The success of the game on the carnival circuit proved to be highly lucrative.
Back in New York, Lowe invited some friends to his apartment and introduced them to the game. The tension seemed palpable. One time, a player became close to winning and was getting more and more excited. When her final number was called she jumped up in a fit of ecstasy and in all her excitement got herself tongue-tied. Instead of shouting Beano she spat out “Bingo!” Lowe would later describe the “sense of elation” he experienced when he heard her cry. He knew from that moment he was going to introduce this game to the public and name it “Bingo”.
What a success it proved to be for Lowe and his company! As the game came out of the public domain it was hard for it to be trademarked. Entreponeurs emerged from all sides and began their own versions. Lowe graciously asked them to pay just one dollar a year and call their games “Bingo” as well. To avoid litigation, this seemed a small price to pay and hence the massive spread and popular interest in bingo.
Lowe became aware of the fundraising possibilities of bingo after he was approached by a parishioner who wanted to use the game to raise funds. However, there seemed to be a problem when he discovered that each game tended to produce at least a half a dozen winners. Lowe knew that in order for bingo to succeed and a larger scale he needed to develop a greater number of combinations for his cards. So he approached a mathematics professor at Columbia University by the name of Carl Leffler. Lowe wanted 6,000 new cards with different combinations. The professor agreed. What he may not have conceptualised was how much harder each card became to develop than the card before. The fee per card rose to $100 and the task was finally completed, much to Lowe’s delight and at a cost to the professor of his sanity! (Or so many people have speculated).
After that, bingo really began to take off. People started to approach Lowe in droves, asking him to help them develop bingo games. Newsletters and even a book were published. The stakes and prizes got higher and pretty soon bingo took its place in popular American culture along with sports and other forms of gambling and general entertainment.

The History Of Lottery

The History Of Lottery

Lotteries have been with us for a long time. They go so far back that they’re mentioned in the Bible, and Caesar himself is known to have encouraged lottery games in Rome to help pay for repair work that needed to be done in the city. Legend has it that even the Great Wall of China was paid for by the proceeds of lottery games.

In medieval times, Europe was a hotbed of lottery activity. In 1420, residents of the French town of L’Ecluse decided to follow Caesar’s lead by using a public lottery to help raise money; this time to increase the town’s defenses. Charitable causes prompted officials in the Belgium city of Bruges to hold a lottery in 1466 to raise money for the poor and needy.

In the early 16th century, the Italians caught lottery fever when they introduced the idea of a ‘number’ lottery in Florence. Interestingly, the word ‘lottery’ is thought to originate from the Italian ‘lotto’, which simply means “fate”.

Royalty caught on to lottery’s moneymaking potential in 1520, when King Francis I of France held the first ever state lottery. The proceeds went to the Royal Court. Forty years later, in the 1560s, lottery fever crossed the English Channel when Queen Elizabeth I decided to hold her own state lottery to raise money to improve England’s ailing harbors. Her Majesty’s prizes included tapestry and money.

The lottery gained in popularity in England over the next two centuries. The British Museum in London, today one of the finest in the world, was actually started on the proceeds of a lottery in 1753.

Lotteries were particularly popular in the New World in the 18th century. Benjamin Franklin used one to pay for the cannons that helped win the American War of Independence, and they were also used to pay money to the army. The Mountain Road, one of the key routes into the west from Virginia, was paid for with a lottery organized by George Washington.

Individuals were fond of them too; Thomas Jefferson (the third U.S. President) sold most of his property through a lottery scheme. Many of America’s historic colleges and universities were initially set up with the proceeds of lotteries. Most notably, these include many of the universities in the prestigious Ivy League.

Within the last couple of centuries, lotteries have been legalized and implemented in pretty much every country in the world. As the numbers of people playing become bigger, so do the prizes; a jackpot in the USA’s Big Game lottery in 2000 reached $363 million.

Bingo History: Story of the Game Bingo

Bingo History: Story of the Game Bingo

The origins of contemporary bingo go back to 16th century Italy, where the lottery game Lo Giuoco del Lotto dItalia was introduced. The popular chance game was introduced to North America in the late 1920s by the name of Beano. A toy salesperson of New York was responsible for changing the name of the game into Bingo and to the increase of its popularity throughout the US.

In the late 18th century, the original Italian lotto game made its way to France. Historical evidence shows that a game called Le Lotto was popular among the French high society who used to play the game in parties and social gatherings.

Le Lotto used to be played with special cards that were divided into three rows and nine columns. Each of the three columns consists of 10 numbers, while each column had five random number and four blank spaces in it. Each player had a different lotto card where he used to mark the number announced by the caller. The first player to cover one row won the game.

By the 19th century, the lotto game spread around Europe and started to serve as a didactic childrens game. In the 1850s, several educational lotto games had entered the German toys market. The lotto games purpose was to teach children how to spell words, how to multiply numbers, etc.

By 1920s, a similar version to the lotto game, known as beano was popular at county fairs throughout the US. In beano, the players placed beans on their cards to mark the called out number. The first player who completed a full row on his card, used to yell out Beano!, until one night in December 1929, when a New Yorker toys salesperson by the name of Edwin S. Lowe visited a country fair outside Jacksonville, Georgia.

On his way back to New York, Lowe had purchased beano equipment including dried beans, a rubber numbering stamp and cardboard. At his New York home, Lowe has been hosting friendly beano games. During one game, one excited winner who had managed to complete a full row stuttered out Bingo, instead of Beano. Listening to the excited stuttering girl, Edwin S. Lowe thoughts went away. Lowe decided to develop a new game that would be called Bingo.

While Lowe’s Bingo game was making its first steps in the market, a Pennsylvanian priest asked Lowe to use the game for charity purpose. After a short tryout period, the priest had found out that the bingo game causes the churches to lose money. Since the variety of bingo cards was limited, each bingo game ended up in more than five winners.

In order to develop the game and to lower the probabilities of winning, Lowe approached Prof. Carl Leffler, a mathematician from Columbia University. Leffler was asked to create bigger variety of bingo cards that each of them will have unique combination of numbers. By 1930, Lowe had 6,000 bingo cards and Prof. Leffler went insane.

Since then, the popularity of the bingo game as a fundraiser continued to grow. In less than five years, about 10,000 weekly bingo games took place throughout North America. Lowe’s company grew to employ several thousands of employees and to occupy more than 60 presses 24 hours a day.

Now, bingo is one of the most popular chance games in the world. It is played in churches, schools, local bingo halls and land based casinos in the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world.
