If you’ve read my introduction, then you know full well how much I spent over the years on schemes that were virtually guaranteed! I was told over, and over and over again that if I spent $xxx on this membership site, or $yyy on this e-book / application / seminar / webinar / whatever I was guaranteeed to make easy money online. I would never have to work again!
It was too good to be true.
So I started my journey.
I spent. And Spent. And Spent. And Spent.
But you know, each product I bought always said “Now get to work” — right at the end. In one line.
Not a lot of time spent on how to get there. Ans you probably guessed it, I’m not a millionaire yet. It wasn’t so easy to “make easy money online“.
It does take work. You can’t sit on your laurels and expect people to give you money hand over fist.
But I still see it. I did a serach on Google for “make easy money online” and it returned 18,000,000 (that is MILLION) results! Normally long-tail keywords are more targetted so you see fewer results — but look at that! Go to Google and try it yourself and see, if you don’t believe me.
18,000,000 results for make easy money online – so a lot of people are looking to do just that. Here is one headline “Learn how to make $1000 to $6000 per day!”. The one thing that was common to the many sites that I visited, is that you “don’t need to do any work” to “make money online“.
Writing an informative blog post every day is work.
Producing a QUALITY blog post every day is work.
Researching markets and your logs is work.
Developing a product is work.
You won’t get away from work. But as you build your business, and it grows you can put systems in place to minimize the amount of hands-on time you spend on your business. You can get interns to help you grow your business, you look at outsourcing specific tasks, you look at alternate delivery methods so you don’t need to package and mail your product out.
Here is an excellent post from a gentleman by the name of James Brausch. I’ve bought a few products from him. I find a lot of value in his posts on his blog. He can be brash, but that’s fine. Check out this post called “4 Ways to become Part of the 2%“.
Today you can outsource virtually anything you want.
But you need to get started, how will you make your first, second or even third million if you don’t take any ACTION? You won’t.
So there are two things you can do.
Continue to spend on the latest get rich quick formula marketed by the “gurus” – or follow along with me, and others that are providing the tools, knowledge and resource to help you get there.
It’s like from the Matrix – which pill will you swallow? You need to make the final decision.
I know which decision I made, and I’m on my way to financial freedom.
On my website, Internet Business Opportunity, I am starting “fresh”. I’ve unshackeled myself from previous attempts but am taking what I have learned and what I continue to learn from individuals on my blogroll and putting a fresh perspective on running a successful internet business.
P.S. Stay tuned for my first information product, coming out within the next few weeks!
