The Myth – “I can make money online without investing time, effort and/or money”
The Reality: It Takes Money To Make Money
We are still very early in the new year, 2017 and this will help you to cut through all the rubbish info out there about having a successful business / being an entrepreneur.
Recently I read a post from my friends and mentors about an extremely successful entrepreneur (whom they know personally) and who also gets the same kind of messages emails common to successful entrepreneurs. Messages like this …
Here’s what he said (some really straight talking!!) ….
“Okay, ready for THE TRUTH? Don’t expect to be able to do what I do until you’re willing to:
- Invest in your education as we have and continue to do. If one is not willing to purchase education on how to successfully market on the Internet, then one cannot expect others who are successful to invest time (their most valuable asset on the planet) in teaching one the things the products are designed to teach one….the products which people refuse to buy . If someone seriously wants results in one’s business but has no clue how to get them, … then investment in ONESELF is a must. It’s the smartest investment a human being/entrepreneur can make.
- Work hard. If one is under the impression that success comes easily without any persistent hard work, then you’re in for a rude awakening this year. There is NO easy button and probably NEVER will be. If one is looking for a get rich quick scheme, there are plenty of those to choose from online but, … if it’s a long-term sustainable result being looked for, one had better be prepared to develop one’s business and marketing muscles….starting today!
- Take RISK! No risk, no reward! If one is looking to make money as an entrepreneur in 2017 but unwilling to take any significant risk, then …..don’t quit the day-job because there’s unlikely to be a single entrepreneur who doesn’t take big risk to achieve their goals. This will require one to step up outside one’s comfort zone and do things one would normally NEVER dare dream of doing. If one is looking to start a legitimate online business without investing a single dime until a profit is seen ….guess what? We highly doubt a single dime of profit will ever be seen because one is approaching being in business with the mindset of an employee…. or the question has to be asked, is that person really in business at all. Maybe they’re just a “wannabe” with a hobby
This is a brilliant challenge and is absolutely true!
Now that I’ve got all that out of the way here’s my tip for you:
“You can create RESULTS or you can create EXCUSES but you cannot create both. Which will you choose to create this year?”
If you have questions or comments, get back to me. But one thing is certain … if you are serious about making a difference, you need to make the choice.
