Time Money Problem is the brain-child of Phil Turner.

Concept

The concept for TimeMoneyProblem.com was born after my involvement with a group of writers from InfoBarrel.com. The leader was a guy called Andrew Walton, who was less than half my age but he had some wonderfully unique and refreshing ideas.

One idea that particularly appealed to me was that Time is the ultimate currency, but that we have to convert it into other currencies such as Knowledge, Reputation, Contacts or Money because none of us can store Time. This was such an original idea that I wanted to pass it on to others, even though Andrew’s original website concept did not work out. This post outlines the whole concept.

What Do I Do?

I am a blogger, a writer and an entrepreneur. This site is a combination of those three aspects of what I do. It is primarily designed to help people to make their own job, either online or in the real world.

Why Do I do It?

I was made redundant myself in 2010 and had to start making a job for myself from scratch. I am also a teacher.

I see it as being of prime importance to pass on everything you learn to others.

We all have unique knowledge due to the unique events that have happened to each one of us over our lifetime. Passing on that knowledge by one generation is simple; passing it on to all future generations requires determination.

My purpose in life is to disseminate my knowledge to the maximum number of knowledge-receptive people I can find. This is  more important than acquiring new knowledge because I already have lots of unique ideas that will die when I do unless I pass them on to other people who will also pass them on. I need to reach thousands of people to be assured that at least a few of them will in turn pass it on to thousands of people. This is the only way the sum total of human knowledge grows.

I think of every bit of knowledge as a sycamore seed. Sycamore trees produce millions of seeds but only a few hundred grow. I need my knowledge to find fertile ground just like a sycamore seed needs soil and water to grow, so I need to broadcast far and wide.
