New Tool In Revolution - Meet Gumroad

Finally business/
that is done on internet/
that makes sense and fair/

I like to introduce those on the Journey to Gumroad.com . I was lucky enough to run into this site from a post by one of my internet heroes (Seth Godin). Finally I am seeing ideas that make the internet a truly level playing field. With Gumroad you can sell things directly to your followers and friends. No big institution in-between taking a cut from your labor.I personally sell books off of amazon, and they take almost 50% of what I make. This gives an artist like myself no choice but to raise my price. But with Gumroad on charging .25 cents per purchase now I and other artist can bring our price down so that people who may want to try our product would be more willing to do so. 
For me this has revolutionized the game, and now I'm jumping into the heart of it. Because this site allows me to sell MP3, PDFs, or even seen hardcopies or other objects over the site at a an affordable price. I can make some major changes to how I do business. Prepare for the upcoming changes for the Journey. So get ready to get your hands on my books, stories, and MP3's. By using Gumroad I really will be able to give away my content, but offer those that like what they have the opportunity to pay. I know,I know that sounds crazy and makes no business sense, but I did not get into developing SelfMastery trainings because I wanted money (although to get paid for doing it is nice), I did it because it was a passion that drove me to create. I believe in the few readers and listeners that I have, and even more important I believe in the Universal laws. I know that if what I produce creates value in someones life they will purchase.
Here is a video explaining the concept, check it out and leave comments:
