“It will not always be summer; build barns”

“It will not always be summer; build barns”I daren’t tempt fate…

I looked at the BBC weather website this morning and thought they’d made a mistake.

The 5-day forecast for London showed wall-to-wall sunshine and daytime temperatures in the high 70s.

Surely they must have got it mixed up with Los Angeles or St Tropez.

If only every day could be like this.

People smile, buy ice creams, drink iced cider and sit in the park.

Living in a land that is all too often grey and  damp, such uncharacteristic weather causes a huge shift in mood for the whole country.

Newspapers will inevitably print photos of people jumping in the fountains at Hyde Park or sitting in deckchairs on Blackpool beach.

Heloise has even bought Pimms and Strawberries to have Sunday afternoon in the garden.

Normally making that kind of prediction of the weather 2 days ahead would be social summer suicide!

But who knows, maybe this time it will be different.

Right about now you’d probably expect me to link to some kind of profound lesson in the nature of making  money…  perhaps quoting the Greek poet Hesiod who wrote

“It will not always be summer; build barns”

But I shall resist.

I won’t talk about ‘making hay while the sun shines’ or ‘he who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son”

And I won’t quote the German Proverb

“Those who don’t pick roses in summer
won’t pick them in winter either.”

Instead, I’ve got one piece of news I think you’ll be very interested in… because it’s absolutely free!

Every summer (whether with sunshine or rain)  I publish something called the Fast Cash Compendium – this is a collection of the best articles, ideas and blueprints from the last 6 months.

Well I’ve just been selecting the best bits from the archives and the Compendium will be available from next week. First all subscribers to our newsletters will get a hard copy in the post.

After that, everyone else will receive a digital version.

In the issue you’ll find 4 cracking ideas that you can use to make some extra cash (or even create a new income stream) in the weeks and months ahead.

You’ll find proven strategies for exploiting the new football season, a simple Forex scalping method and the profits that lie hidden in… beer bottle labels!

You’ll also get your hands on the first blueprint Rob Cornish did that detailed how he developed (actually got someone else to do it for just £200!) and made over £22,000 with his fist software product.

Yes, since then Rob has gone on to create a training programme dedicated tot his exciting business model. If you’re interested in taking a shortcut, then take a look here.
