Build Your Info Products Business

I get a HUGE kick out of watching my competitors in the information marketing field. Some of them are very well known entities who have been a round for as long as I have. I know I must really piss them off!

Why? Because the VAST majority of these folks (many of whom I have met personally) don’t really LIKE people or CUSTOMERS. For them this is just a MONEY game. They could have been just as happy (or happier) as investment bankers as long as they made a lot of cash.

Not true here. I like the field and very much enjoy my customers! Very different from MANY of my competitors!! I have actually HEARD, with my own ears, conversations where some of these “bigshots” have expressed DISDAIN for their customers.

So why do I piss these guys off?

Because I’m not at all like them. I am blogging like a maniac and getting stellar SEO results because I really LIKE what I’m doing. I’m writing this blog post at 2:34AM on what is NOW, Monday morning. Why? Because it’s fun.

It’s really tough to compete against someone like me because I’m not doing it PRIMARILY for the money. As a result, I have absolutely NO problem putting in the time and doing the things that are necessary to get and keep me at the top.

This is why my competitors get annoyed. I LOVE it. It’s fun to compete. Particularly when you are doing it for FUN. If this WAS all about the money for me, I WOULD have been an investment banker. I went to a “fancy pants” graduate school and many of the folks I studied with are in the field.

Many HATING it, by the way!

So what about YOU? If you’re blogging about something you really LIKE, then you know how I feel. If you are blogging for the MONEY, then I wish you luck.

You’ll certainly need it to keep from going F*****in nuts!

My wife said I sounded PROUD and BOASTFUL in this post. Agree? Disagree? Come on now, let me know who wins this one.

    Absolutely True.

    If we cannot enjoy what we do online, what is the difference between working online and working offline under a boss?.

    Passion is the most powerful driving force that keeps us motivated everyday.

    Glad you agree. Tough to understand those who don’t! Fred
