I Found the Secret to Getting Rich on the Internet!
By James Capobianco
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
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:
A good product/service.
An ongoing investment in time and
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.
