Wish You Could Live the Laptop Lifestyle?

No matter what people tell you, there are only two ways to make money online.

1.  Sell something

AND

2.  Find others to join your team in selling something

You can do #1 without #2, but, in order for an opportunity to be legal, you can not do #2 without #1.

When you sell something, you earn commission.  Some companies will pay you 5%, some will pay 30%.  Some even pay as high as 40%.  How is that possible?  Well…generally, the product goes from the manufacturer through a bunch of middle men (who mark up the price at each step), and eventually is sold to the end consumer.

Generally, when you buy into a home based business, the product goes from the manufacturer through the company to the end consumer.  This way, the end price can be marked up, but there is no mark up from the middle men, so the company can pay you a commission for bringing them the end consumer.

I’m sure you’ve heard that some colleges are offering online education.  Convenience learning is a huge market in this day and age.  People love the idea of learning from the comfort of their home.

The products that I sell are online education for people who want to market their businesses on the internet.  Because they are made and delivered electronically, the manufacturing and delivery costs are very low.  The company, charges an affiliate fee of $20/mo., which covers these costs.  The commission that I make is 100% on what I sell.

100% is unheard of in the affiliate marketing arena.

Tomorrow, I will tell you a little about the team of wonderful people that I work with to build my business.  We are called the eBananas.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please let me know.

If You Are Not Coachable, I Can NOT Help You

In order to succeed in business, you MUST be coachable.  What do I mean by coachable?  You must be able to follow simple instructions.  If you ask me about my business and I direct you to a post or video or audio that answers your questions, you must actually go there and check it out.  If you do not, then come back to ask me again about my business, you will get the same answer!  I can not do the work for you.  YOU have to show some initiative and show that you are going to be a good business partner.

I do NOT want to work with you if you can’t follow simple instructions.

Why?  Because if you can’t follow simple instructions before you partner with me in business, you are going to be the type of person who wants something for nothing and that’s not what I’m offering here.  I’m offering you your own home based BUSINESS.  Businesses take work.  They take time and effort.  If you aren’t willing to put in time and effort into building a future, I can’t help you.

 

How to Choose a Home Based Business

WOW…the backlash I’ve received since joining Empower Network is quite amazing!

First of all…let me tell you why I joined now and why I joined with who I did.

Just like anything else, it takes 7 – 10 exposures to something for someone to even notice that thing. I was approached by a couple Empower reps back when I was looking for a company, however, at that time, these people were so vague, I actually saw the word Empower and the logo and thought they were promoting one of the electricity things. I discount those simply for the way the reps in this area go around door to door harassing people…but that’s a whole other story…anyway…back to my story. 😉

Seemingly Intelligent People Are Losing Thier Minds

I am amazed at the number of seemingly intelligent people who are acting like they don’t have a shred of common sense. If you are offended by this statement or this post I apologize in advance. This is not meant to “trash” anyone. It’s meant to educate.

In the past few weeks, I’ve gotten a lot of emails that go something like this:

THEM: I started a home based business and was told that I would be able to quit my job in no time. But here it is, a year later and all I’m doing is spending money instead of making it.

ME: What are you spending your money on? Why do you think you are not making money?

THEM: I’m spending money buying products from my company so that when I do sponsor someone, I will qualify for bonuses. I’m also spending money advertising. I’m not making money because nothing works me.

ME: First of all, there are MANY free and low cost ways of advertising. You do not need to spend a lot of money advertising. Unfortunately, if you don’t know what those ways are, yes…you will spend money to learn. You need to either spend time learning it on your own or pay someone to help you. It’s that way with anything. If you want to be a teacher, you pay to go to school to learn how. If you want any career and not just a job, you pay to go to school to learn how to do it. If you don’t already know how to build a business, you have to pay to learn how. The question then becomes – Do you pay someone thousands to learn or hundreds? Just like going to college, it’s an investment in your future.

THEM: Why should I pay more money to learn how to market? Nothing has worked so far.

ME: That’s exactly why you should make the investment into learning how to market. Once you learn it, you can implement it forever. Think of it as an investment into your future, not spending money on something that is getting you nowhere like you’ve been doing.

I really am surprised at the number of people who honestly think they can start a home based business with NO EXPERIENCE OR EDUCATION and be replacing their income in no time. It seems these same people would think they could become a doctor just out of high school with no education.

The World is Ending

The ancient Mayan calendar ends on 12/21/12.  Many people think the world will end on that day as well.

I recently did a training call on using social networking to build a home based business.  I offered $150 off two of my popular programs.  One of these programs is a group coaching that begins in January 2013.

This morning I woke up to an email from a call participant who actually told me he can’t purchase the group coaching because his business is “on hold until after 12/21/12″ in case the Mayans are right and the world is ending.

HELLO??? Really?

So…what if the world DOES end on that date?  Are you taking your money with you when you die?  And, even if you survive, money will be useless so what kind of an excuse is that?

Some people will make any excuse they can to not move forward and better their lives.  Are you sitting around waiting for the world to end?  What if it doesn’t?  Then you’ve wasted a lot of time you could be using to build your business.
