The Make Money Farce
You have seen them and have probably received thousands of them since you started internet marketing. You come from the woodworks, don’t you? Opportunities that promise that you too can make money online with little to no effort. You then invest your money in the opportunity only to find out that there are no cakes in the sky … just the cold, harsh reality that you only spent part of your rental money on someone’s new car.
Yes, this is the reality that many internet marketers face. I was there. I started in this business with my dad and I want to tell you that we’ve seen every scam under the sun. Why? Because we were the kind of person who had a dream and wanted to help other people through success, only to find out that there is no free lunch in the store. The cold hard truth is that “business is business”. Period. A million ways to work from home are created every year. There are many more gullible people who shop their way into the dream. In the end, like me and my father, they stay … a few thousand dollars shorter.
But it’s online and it has to be TRUE
Here is a revelation. People who cheat, lie. You’re not just lying a little, it’s a lot of lies. They want you to trust them and believe their story. But when it comes to delivering … well. You know. You have been there a thousand times. You spent your money on the internet’s magic potions only to find you ran out of money and now you have a rash (the legendary discouragement rash).
I’m not here to sell you a cake in the sky. I’m here to be your jerk of reality Sleeper, it’s time to wake up! The internet is not a new invention that goes against the laws of business. It’s about steroids. Imagine the business rules that you know, then multiply them by the set of variables that the online component is now introducing. The internet can allow you to get very rich or very broke.
So … can I make money online or not ?!
You can be young jedi. I know some of the things I’ve said might be a little naughty, but I’m serious. There is no money like “internet business” online money. The thing is, you have to see it for what it is. Your internet business is just that … a business. Do not enter the online business with an attitude other than “I will run MY business”.
There is nothing that is professionally rewarding and satisfying than running your own business. And if it goes right, your internet business can feed you and your family. You may be looking for quick ways to make money. Once you’ve set up your business based on the model you’re using, the money can come fast. It all depends on you and your imagination. Add in the rush, grind, and grit and you have something.
