You’ve probably heard all the pitches.
Easy Money. Push-Button Profits. Foolproof Systems.
It all sounds so enticing. You see the proof that others have done it.
In certain circles, it can sound like everyone else is turning their internet into their own personal piggybank.
But is it as easy as some people claim it to be?
No. Not even close.
The truth is that transitioning from being an employee to being a profitable online business owner is tough.
I went from delivering pizzas for a living to making money online pretty fast.
But I also had an advantage that some people miss in my story.
I was at the end of my rope. There was no Plan B. Everything else I had tried failed, and that meant doing whatever it took to make it work.
If it meant working 14 hours on my day off from my dead-end job, I did it.
The 4 hour work week is real. Some of my clients are living it. But you can’t start there. You have to build up some serious momentum first with serious hard work.
I had to overcome my fear and contact people even when it made me uncomfortable. I didn’t feel like there was any other choice.
You’re going to move out of the comfort zone anytime you grow.
When one technique didn’t work, I’d try something else.
And it wasn’t long until I was earning more online than from my job.
Fast forward to today.
I’ve coached hundreds of clients one-on-one and thousands through my groups.
Some people start earning a full-time income in less than 30 days. Others take 6 to 12 months. Others take a couple of years. And still others give up and quit before ever reaching their goal.
Something that has always bugged me is how those with previous business experience of any type catch on so much quicker.
There is a required ‘mental shift’ that a lot of gurus choose to never talk about.
It’s almost like an unwritten rule. Don’t talk about this.
But recently it hit me while talking to a friend of mine.
One of the reasons so many struggle is they refuse to accept the truth about online business.
Here’s one of those realities…
You never have 100% certainty of success as an online entrepreneur.
Let’s say you’re in the start-up phase and you’re choosing your niche.
I can give you a step-by-step system for analyzing markets and even understanding your own interests.
You can review what’s already selling, what customers say they want to buy, and what’s successfully working for competitors.
You can reduce the risk by basing your decision on proven numbers.
But you can’t be 100% certain this is the perfect choice for you.
At some point you have to take a step of faith. You have to leap into the unknown.
I’ve never served in the military, but I’m sure they face a much more terrifying experience if they’re called into combat. It wouldn’t matter how much they trained in Bootcamp or many step-by-step systems they were taught.
Nothing can fully prepare them for the moment bullets start flying.
Of course we don’t face anything even remotely like this online. Your life won’t end at a moment’s notice in online marketing. What we do is EASY compared to that!
If you make a mistake today, you’ll have another opportunity tomorrow.
You get to try again.
It’s not even a question of IF you make a mistake.
You will make mistakes. That’s something I can guarantee you with 100% certainty.
At some point, you will send email that doesn’t generate sales.
You will run an ad that loses money.
You may even create a product that isn’t worth the time you invested in it.
But if you concentrate on growing a list and developing a relationship with them, you will succeed. That’s our Ace in the Hole online. Grow an addicted buying audience, and you can overcome your other mistakes.
It’s not a question of IF you succeed. It’s just a question of WHEN you succeed.
In the short run, everyone faces failures. In the long run, you’re the only one who can stop you.
If I haven’t scared you off by this point, then you may have what it takes online.
You’re the type of person I’m looking for in the Monthly Mentor Club…my online community where members are continually moving forward online, growing their profits, and sharing their secrets.
