Welcome back! I hope you’ve been having an amazing week! 👋
This week was fun for me. I’ve been going through a transition recently in my life and work, which you can read about in my last post titled Blog Hopping & Bus Driving. I’ve been handling it well, I think, and it allowed me to have some fun this week!
Before I get into this week’s goings on, I want to share a topic with you that I believe should be important to everyone involved in or interested in online business. I’m referring to the LIES that are out there in cyber world about getting rich fast online. Short answer, it’s not true, but can seem true!
This is something I’m very passionate about, revealing the lies and helping you so you don’t have to fall for the crap lies and waste your time and money!
What’s with this get rich quick nonsense? 💰
If you’ve been on social media chances are you’ve seen some short videos, pics or even read stories of people who are decked out, nice cars, free looking life, traveling the globe. They’re making claims that you can make a ton of money online. It can be true!
There are 2 different messages that are being shared in these social media posts and ads but only one of them is true. The issue is you can’t always figure it out unless you do some thorough research!
Message 1 – You can make 4-5 figures+ per month in as fast as 1-3 months, you don’t need to know much about computers or social media, just follow a few steps and bingo bango you have a successful business.
Message 2 – You can build a successful online business and make 4-5 figures per month; learn the necessary skills and make use of available mentoring to get you successful in your business.
Both these messages sound similar and may seem hard to determine which is more viable. To some people it may be easy to figure out.
How do we avoid scams? 💸
The most basic way is to remind yourself if it sounds too good to be true it usually is! You need to do your research and ask probing questions, look up reviews and feedback online. There’s no push button, quick fix, don’t have to work, way of building wealth in online business.
You’ll have to learn some important skills, practice them, take time and work your business, take time to train and learn from a successful mentor who shares with you their proven plan you can follow.
I’ve mentioned in past posts, I’ve been scammed, told I could make $$$$ and get help, then afterward no real help to be had and money lost.
What I’ve Tried! 😰 💦
In the past 13 years I’ve also tried multi-level marketing, online coaching, drop ship, direct sales… I wasn’t successful in any of them, but these weren’t scams; I failed because I didn’t have a mentor to guide me or a proven plan to follow. I tried to do it all on my own. There are many business models online that work, you just need to make use of the coaching available to get help.
You may think, “I don’t need help, just the right business idea”. I’m in a mentoring group of over 200 people building affiliate marketing businesses who have said the same thing and haven’t been able to. I said it and I’ve heard so many people say it. If you can make it work, power to you! However, I’ve learned the vast majority cannot, without the right help.
Most people jump from business model to business model, the next shinny object, the so-called best new option, spend, spend, spend, spend, spend… Success in one model never happens!
The KEY 🗝️
The key is to find one, stick to it until you’re successful. If it’s getting challenging, good it’s supposed to have challenges! This is the time where it’s important to have access to help, a mentor, to overcome obstacles and continue moving forward to success.
Right now, I’m working on an affiliate marketing business, and it’s so exciting because I’m doing it the right way! As I mentioned in past posts, I have an amazing mentor, Dean Holland, one of the best in the world. I’m also following a proven plan that Dean developed based on his own successful journey. I get daily help as I need it, I have access to live training weekly, a support team and a supportive community of like-minded people helping each other. It’s awesome!
But I am not getting rich quick even though I’m doing it right. It could take up to a year before I make as much as a full-time income. This is the way it really is out there, folks!! IT TAKES TIME AND EFFORT!
You won’t get rich quick, but you’ll build a business that will make you rich forever!
What about those who do get rich suddenly? 🤑
What we don’t notice about people who appear to have become rich fast is that they’ve been working on it for some time before money was made. After they put in the hard work and started making money it could then happen faster because they’ve learned the skills needed. They’ve made mistakes and learned from them. They’ve worked hard at what they needed to do. THEN, in time it happened $$$$.
We see only see the tip of the iceberg when we look at these successful people, and we forget to look at all the work they did to get there, which is the 80% that hides under the water.
We need to stop wanting and looking for the EASY and FAST way of getting through life! This is where the problem is. This is a destructive mindset to live buy!
Anything that has come easy, fast and without work pains is not worth having!
What’s been going on this week? 🗓️
