If You Ignore The Signs, It Just Gets Worse
What most people do when they are trying to get their business off the ground is Try Every New Shiny Object That Comes Along. New Video Tools… New Courses… New Products… New Logos… New Prices… And The List Goes On And On. But these stragies don't work. You want to know why? Because they focus on the wrong things!
And what happens if you just do nothing? NOTHING AND YOU GO BROKE. AND WHEN PEOPLE ASK, YOU MUTTER SOMETHING ABOUT A “BAD ECONOMY”. One missed opportunity might set you back a week, a month, a year or even light years towards achieving your goals. It’s time to do something different. It’s time to invest in Your Best Year Yet.
I’ve got an answer that works.
I was on the phone with John.
“I just don’t think I can make a living online,” said John. I was on the phone with Jack because he’s one of my subscribers. He sent me an email saying his back was to the wall. He had been trying and trying to make this “online business thing” work, and had spent thousands of dollars over the last year or so. He had only made about $250 to show for all his efforts. John was ready to give up.
“John,” I said, “if you’re willing to listen, I think I can help.”
“I’m ready to try anything,” he said.
“And that is your first problem,” I answered
Which leads me to the reason for writing this...
Maybe you’re not in John’s situation. Maybe you’re not desperate. But I know that a lot of people are asking the same questions as John.
Among those questions:
- Can I really make a living online and quit my day job?
- If I put in all this effort and work, will I make money?
- Am I being ripped off by people who sell me all this “make money” stuff on the Internet?
- Are there secrets being held back that I don’t know about?
My best answer is the same one I gave to John (not his real name, by the way): yes, you can make a living online…and yes, you are probably wasting some money right now.
The good news is, if you’d start taking the right actions, you could turn it all around in just a day or two.
Here’s what I mean:
Most people struggling to build an online business are too busy buying the latest “system” or “course” or “software” or “service”…too busy BUYING stuff to ever MAKE any money. For these people, their primary online “business” activity consists of evaluating their next purchase!
Think about it...
- How much time do you spend reading salesletters, or reviews of products, courses, and seminars?
- How much time do you spend reading and posting in online forums, discussing the merits of this or that new program? And once you buy that new “thing” – whatever it is – how far do you get with it?
- Do you have any big courses sitting on a shelf that you haven’t finished yet? Haven’t watched all the DVDs or listened to all the audios?
- Have you any courses that you DID watch all the stuff, and got all excited by it…but didn’t follow through with all the STEPS?
It’s just you and me here.
My guess is that this line of thinking leaves you a bit uncomfortable. Don’t worry – I think we’re all at least a little bit “guilty” of this syndrome. There is a solution, but more about that in a minute.
