The TRUTH in Information Marketing
The AMOUNT and LEVEL of BS in the field of information marketing is unbelievable. If you sell info products, you know what I mean! If you’re looking to get into the field, you may not. Let me explain.
For the last 5 or 6 years, SUPPOSED gurus have been dishing it out pretty thick. Their basic line has been that ANYONE can make money in this business doing little or no work.
Here is the truth: THAT IS A BALD-FACED LIE!
It MAY be a Four-Hour work week for Tim Ferriss, but that happens AFTER you do the hard work necessary to give you a regular income stream where you can sit back and RELAX. IF you want.
My first question is this: Do you think that Donald Trump and Richard Branson work 4 Hours a week? Of course not! Why not? Because they love what they are doing! COULD they work 3 hours a week? Sure. BUT, that would keep them from doing what they ENJOY doing.
Here is another TRUTH. If you don’t pick a field to work in that you really LIKE, your chances of getting to the point where you can sit back and work 4 hours a week are slim to none. MOSTLY NONE!
I encourage you to get into the business of marketing and selling information. I do NOT want to try and delude you as to how much work is involved. I’ve been doing this for over 25 years. About half of that time on-line now.
I NOW work as much as I want. Since I’m a competitive S.O.B., that means I work a lot. Why? Because I want to be the TOP DOG in my field. I obsess about keyword rankings. It’s like those FREAKS (some of whom are friends) who play Fantasy Football!
This stuff is FUN to me.
The TRUTH is also that many if not MOST people are in this field are in it almost exclusively for the money. They could give a RAT’S A** whether the money they made came in from this business or something else.
There are a lot of other TRUTHS as well. I’ll share more of them when I get upset about other things. For now, there you have it!
