Making money. Online (or off). Who doesn’t want that?
Lulu bought several of these “how-to” programs, hoping to learn how to make money online. But none of them worked for her. Lulu is no dummy and put in an honest effort.
It’s not that the programs were necessarily bad. Some folks made money with them.
Here’s what people who sell how-to-money-making programs don’t say:
You are not someone else.
You don’t have the same skills, the knack, or the interests that those selling program X (or method X) have. Or, that those have who are making money with it.
The bigger money in NM and other direct sales ventures is in the back end. I.e. it doesn’t show up for a year, or two, or three. If ever.
In those first 365 days, it is only your own interests and passion for whatever it is you’re doing, that will take you there. We know it’s not the money because there is none in the beginning.
That’s why NM has a 95% drop out rate.
Forget “the money.” Or “the market” Or “What’s hot? I’m doing that.”
Ask, what am I really good at, or what do I WANT to get really good at, that there might be a market for? (If you want more than extra spare change from your business, that is.)
P.S. Forget forced discipline, also. If the only way you can get yourself to call prospects, for example, is to force yourself, how fun is that? And if it’s no fun, how long will you continue?
P.P.S. I have taken my own advice. I’ve been a closet movie-maker for almost 25 years, and until now, never made the time. Well finally, this Spring, I did. I won’t make zip with my videos for now. But I’m learning how to film and edit, and now have some tolerable videos to show off the Extreme Regime Weight Control program. They’re not perfect. I even made a 90 second music ad for it. See here.
