Does that headline sound familiar? I’ll bet it got your attention. I know everybody makes outrageous claims for quick Internet success. Well I am going to tell you what that secret is and it won’t cost you a dime.
The truth of the matter is there is no secret. Let me repeat that “THERE IS NO SECRET”!
I hope I didn’t burst any bubbles out there or ruin a fantasy that has been hyped by marketers on the Net trying to get you to buy their products in the hopes that you would think theirs is the KEY, the MAGIC FORMULA to success and untold riches.
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not Mr. Doom and Gloom. After all, I am on the Internet and I am selling or representing others selling products and services. You can make money online. There are a lot of people doing it. What I am saying is that there is nothing SECRET about it. Be realistic in your approach to your own business. It requires long hours, hard work, dedication, drive, ambition, common sense, a monetary investment and other things I probably neglected to mention.
The “bottom line”. “There ain’t No FREE Lunch!” Let’s face it, you only get what you pay for and/or in this case what you WORK for.
Now I speak from experience here. Some of it rather painful and expensive. I’ll be the first to admit that I bought into the hype, not only emotionally but financially. I’ve tried several business ventures. Many of them with promises of quick riches. It’s not going to happen. Now I don’t say you can’t make money with these programs. What I am saying is that it is not fast and it is not as easy as they would like you to believe. Like any other business you must work at it to have it succeed. In addition to the modest registration fee required to join, YOU must make an investment in time and money too.
As I checked into both offline and online business ventures, I soon came to realize that the only people getting rich were the people selling the HYPE. It sounded so good to people like me and perhaps like you. Hoping that each new opportunity held the SECRET we all are looking for. What’s that old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. Well we all hoped that the next opportunity was the one that was TRUE!
Much wasted time and many dollars latter, I figured out the SECRET. It wasn’t what they were selling that was going to make me rich; but how they were selling it, that was going to make me rich, or at least successful. The light went on. Now if I hadn’t wasted all that time and money, I could have been working on this SECRET formula for wealth a long time ago.
It was all so simple:
• Have a good product.
• Market it well.
• You will make money.
The not so simple part of this SECRET formula to success. It is NOT easy. It requires:
• Hard work.
• A good product/service.
• Customer Service.
• An ongoing investment in time and money.
• Some common sense and some LUCK!
So in conclusion, let’s make a new “bottom line”. You can make money. You can be successful. You can enjoy life. You can be your own BOSS! Just don’t fall for the HYPE. Use your common sense. Learn from people you trust. Those who have gone before you. Do your homework. You don’t have to learn the hard way. As P.T. Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute”. You don’t have to be one of them.
