"I'll show you how to make Real Money from Virtual Land." -- J.W. Hagarty

“I’ll show you how to make Real Money from Virtual Land.” — J.W. Hagarty

Do you dream of earning riches through Real Estate?
Having tenants pay your bills?
Living an incredible lifestyle, driving a fancy car, owning a vacation home in the Caribbean?

Sounds awesome right?

Five years ago, I thought so too. I read a book called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki which convinced me that Real Estate was the answer to all my prayers. I spent thousands and thousands of dollars on investment seminars, chasing little green houses and hoping they would magically turn into red hotels. 

The Real Estate gurus said I would have to:

  • chase deals
  • get bank financing
  • mortgage myself to the hilt
  • hire management companies
  • hire real estate brokers
  • hire insurance agents
  • deal with property taxes
  • screen my tenants
  • obey eviction laws
  • and fix broken toilets!

Sure, how about I just slather myself in honey and walk into a swarm of flesh eating ants?

You see, if you want to earn the Big Bucks in real life Real Estate, if you want to become the next Warren Buffett, you need MONEY Lots of money.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it can’t be done. I’m just saying for average people like you and me it is nearly impossible.

Fortunately, while I was being eaten by flesh eating ants, my virtual land business was spitting out cash.  Real money, paid by real people, for fake land. Yes, you heard me–fake land!

I had tapped into the virtual real estate market in Second Life.

  • My business brought in money while I slept.
  • I had no real estate brokers.
  • I had no insurance agents.
  • I paid no property taxes.
  • I had no repairs.
  • I had no toilets.
  • I screened no tenants.
  • I evicted with a click.

I’ve been doing this since 2007, and I still do it today.  

And now it’s time for me to show you how.

Am I special?

Better than you?

Nope. I’m an just average guy in my mid-40s, with no business degree, and absolutely no technical skills.  Heck, I still have trouble figuring out how to use the Remote Control!

Yet I somehow managed to build a virtual real estate business that generated gross sales of over $656,785 in the last three years alone.

My business has prospered while dozens of my competitors have gone out of business, literally dropping off the map.

What is my secret?

I’m good with numbers, have good people skills, a brilliant wife, and I treat my business as a business.  That’s it.

You could leave right now, close this web page, log into Second Life and start your own business – treat it like a business – and start making a profit.

You don’t need this book to be a land dealer in Second Life.

But if you go down that road, without my help, you will face a steep learning curve, pitfalls, and countless mistakes.

I’ve made thousands of dollars worth of mistakes so you don’t have to!

Why learn from trial and error, when I’ve created a proven path you can follow?

When I started my business it took me a full six months to get into profit, and I WASTED $4,167 in the process.

Up until now there has never been a guide that gives away all the secrets of a virtual land baron,

in so much easy to follow, step by step detail.

Why not?  Because traditionally Second Life Land Barons don’t help the competition.

VIRTUAL BREADWINNER has broken that silence!

And people are chomping at the bit to get their hands on this three volume road map to running a successful Second Life land business.

So, what does being a Second Life land baron mean?

Money and Freedom.

Freedom from stress and worry.  Freedom from bosses and time cards.

Freedom from dress codes and overtime.  Freedom to live the life you want to live.

Do you want to be a Super Star? In Second Life you can! 

You can reach Warren Buffett status!

You can look HOT, party with your friends, and become a part of something larger than yourself.  Your tenants will become like your extended family, and you’ll make friends from all over the world!

And it’s not just your Second Life that can be amazing.

Let me tell you, once your virtual real estate business starts spitting out cash, your life will become more comfortable.  You’ll have cash to pay your bills.  At dinner time, you can chomp down on a big, meaty rib-eye instead of finding the “affordable” section of the menu.  You can go to the movies whenever you want, without sweating those exorbitant ticket prices.

"Everyone will see notice when you drive up in one of these."

“Everyone will notice when you drive up in one of these.”

Your neighbor will wonder how the heck you can afford a Lexus when you don’t even have a job!  And he will be baffled when you tell him you rent fake land for real money – and its an honest income!

(That’s not our Lexus in the picture, but ours looks just like it!)

All of a sudden you will have more time for family, friends, and all the things you want to do with your life. You won’t be chained to your job, or stuck behind your desk. At last, you’ll have that freedom you have always wanted.

Because your Second Life land business will be on auto-pilot!
