Everyday I get asked the same question. “How do I get started making money online”. I usually ignore it or am nice about it but it annoys the shit out of me. Why you ask? Well here is the thing. They are asking me for advice because they have researched and know what I do. I have written over 4,000 posts on this site with many on how to get started. I have a product that is now free that goes over everything. My point is if you haven’t tried anything and you know who I am than this world of making a living on the internet is just not for you.
The other question that annoys me a lot is when people ask me, “what is my one biggest tip I can give people to be successful?” Umm don’t eat yellow snow? Work hard? Don’t pee into the wind? There is really nothing I can say that they haven’t already heard.
I am actually trying to think of one thing to say like if I was pinned down and had to pick one and I guess it would be “invest in yourself”. Course that leads to a lot more explanation. For me investing in myself was learning how to program. I am not very good but I can build anything in almost any programing language. It wont be pretty and experienced coders would laugh at my code but it would be functional and more importantly… profitable. So thats usually what I say to people.
Many times its really frustrating when no matter what question you answer it only leads to more questions… OR worse – excuses. When people start to tell me all the reasons why they would fail then its hopeless. Why did I even waste time with you when I could have talked to someone that was actually going to try.
Between the Shoe-In Money System and the original ShoeMoney System I have sold over 50,000 copies. Unfortunately I know that less than 2% of people that buy it will actually take an action and try. Its reality but it’s still frustrating.
For those that do try… at all.. I love them and am proud of them and actually will completely do anything I can to help them.
In other news I am going strong with the ShoeMoney Show podcast. If you are not listening then you are missing out! I have had some amazing guests and have a great line up on the way.
Here’s to a great and spooky October!
