Buying a ‘turn-key’ online business opportunity is almost always a mistake.

Yes, there are good systems out there.

But online marketing is not like buying a franchise. When you buy a brick-and-mortar franchise like McDonalds, the company behind will make sure the research is done for you.

The company chooses the target location. They analyze traffic patterns and project sales based on decades of experience. They’ll make sure there isn’t another McDonalds right across the street.

When you see a business opportunity promoted online, they’re not putting those protections in place.

If you do the exact same thing as everyone else who purchased it, you’re going to be running headlong into each other. And nobody wins…except the person who sold the opportunity.

Instead of investing in someone else’s ‘system’, invest in yourself first.

You are your greatest asset.

When you invest in an online system or any type of training, see it as an investment in yourself.

It’s not a plug-and-play opportunity. It’s an investment in your knowledge and skills.

Skills you can use today, tomorrow, next year, and a decade from now.

Billionaire Warren Buffet is quoted as saying…

“There’s one investment that supersedes all others: Invest in yourself…Nobody can take away what you’ve got in yourself, and everybody has potential they haven’t used yet.”

You have amazing potential.

You have unfair advantages over the competition.

But you’ll never tap into them as long as you try to just follow someone else’s system without adding yourself to it.

For example, when I teach email marketing, I can help someone write good emails by modeling.

Not by copying. Copying someone else’s emails word-for-word leaves out your unfair advantage.

You need to take the model and add in your story.

You need to mix in your personality.

It’s based on the formula I’ve discovered and used for over 2 decades and have taught to thousands of other customers.

But mixing that formula with your own advantages is what separates you from the competition.

And that’s just one example of this at work.

Anyone who hands you an online system that doesn’t require your participation is leaving out the most important component.

Instead, look at everything you do as an investment in yourself.

If you run a Facebook ad campaign, you’re investing in your skills.

You’re going to learn more about your audience. You’re going to see what attracts them and doesn’t. The next campaign you run will build upon this. If you use another form of advertising, you’ll still take what you gained from running ads on Facebook.

Now apply this to everything you do online.

It’s amazing what you can become.

And that’s why the February issue of the Monthly Mentor Club is about “Hidden Leverage for Maximum Income.”

You’ll discover how to leverage your talents and skills to create a much more profitable online business.

In addition, you’ll discover how to partner with others to tap into their lists, their knowledge, and their expertise.

Plus, you get my favorite plan for attracting an extra surge of income fast.

The February issue goes to print early tomorrow morning (February 1st).
