My dream is to be a full time Internet Marketer.
I have been a mechanic for over 30 years. Now, I am in hard
pursuit of my dream, Internet Marketing, I have wanted to do it
for years but I thought I could never learn all the stuff. So now you know, I am
just an average guy, just like you. The only difference is, I
have acted on that I wish to do with my life.
Here is how it all started
ago, I bought my youngest son his first computer. I paid a $1,000.00
for it but it didn't work right from the first day we had it.
This was back in the Dos. and Windows 3.1 era. I started
learning all I could about it because no one could figure out
what was wrong. It took me about 3 months to learn enough to
find the problem. It was pretty simple, it had 2 system.ini files
which was causing the whole problem. Yes, I know they say it is
impossible to have 2 files with the same name in the same
directory. I am here to tell you it can be done, it's called unformat. It breaks all the rules, whatever is laying under in
the hard drive will be brought back to the surface no matter
what is already there. That is how you can do it.
From this point I Just kept
on learning, as I learn, I started pay closer attention to
Internet Marketing. Back then, the only way to build a WebPages
was to use notepad and build it with HTML. I tried to do it, but
with little success a became discouraged and soon gave up. To
day though it has become a lot easier to build WebPages. Most of
the HTML is done for you.
In the last couple of years,
I decided to look into Internet Marketing again. It has been quite an
experience. I, just like most of you, have looked at and read just
about anything I could get my hands on about the subject. Wasted
countless hours to find out most of what I had been reading was
out of date and didn't work, most of the time.
The best thing I can tell
anyone looking to get into Internet Marketing is just start.
Yes, you heard me, "Just start" but where? This is what your saying
to yourself. Think about what you really want to do online to
make money, something you have some knowledge of. Look at what
others are doing to be successful in that niche or business.
Start out by trying to copy what they are doing but change it
into your own words and start adding your ideas as you go.
It's a slow process! It
will take you a while to learn but don't quit, that's why most
people fail. They give up right before they are ready to
succeed, they think I will never learn this stuff but you will
and can. It's just a big learning curve, you'll will be able to find help
along the way and most of it can be found for free. The biggest thing
you will have to overcome is focusing, not jump around from one
thing to another, I find this to be one of the biggest stumbling
blocks without a doubt! It's a big time killer and career killer
Then there will come a time
that you will find that there seems to be no information out
there, nothing that will help you. Your stuck, no one is putting
out the information that helps you speed everything up. That
information you can only gain from someone whose been there.
This is where building a good personal working relationship
online helps. There are times you need to have someone
showing you how to do things but it's hard to find just the right person, that you
can trust, that will give you good information and show you how
to save time and money. I know, because I have been there, done
it, been taken for the ride a couple of times in my life.
My suggestion is to find
someone willing to take the time to start helping you. Someone
who will explain things to you as you need it. Feel them out for
a little while, see if what they are telling you is useful and is
getting the job done. If so, ask them if they would take the
time to train you or coach you. During this time, you should
have found out what kind of person they are. If they really care
about helping you and want to see you succeed. Yeah there are lots
of them out there with information, not all good, or works like
they say it will. They will try and make you believe that they
know what they're doing and take your money anyway and say;
Well, you didn't do what I told you, when you know you did. It
just didn't work. It came up short of what you were told.
I have been really
fortunate in finding just the right person in Rodger Hyatt, he
has shown me so much more than anyone else that I have tried
before. He took the time to start helping me, showing me just
small things that started making a lot of difference and got the
results just like he said it would and if I had a question, he
was more than glad to help. I decided to ask him about coaching
me more on a regular basis. Now, he is teaching me how to run my
own giveaways and many other things along the way. He has taught
me more in 30 days than all the others put together in the last
2 years and I am still learning from him.
You know what, I was just
like many of you, for a long time I did nothing and was afraid
to start. "What if I mess up", I said to myself. I just had to
do it, it's the only way I could get started. So what if I mess
up, I would just have to fix it. Was it easy, no, not at first
but it gets easier as you learn. You're always learning new
stuff. You just jump in and get your feet wet. Start splashing
around a little, then it will start to come together. You will
find the people along the way that will help smooth the bumps
I will be the first to tell
you, whatever your dreams, whether it's Internet Marketing or not,
don't give up! Those who succeeded are the people that didn't
give up. I am and will be the 2% that will succeed and it's
because I refuse to give up!
If I give up on my dream,
Look at the video at the
bottom of the page, here is a man who has not given up and it's
all starting to come together for him. Get your crying towel
out, your going to need it when you watch this one.
there and yours will start coming together too!
P.S. I don't like what's
left. (JOB) really sucks. I want to be in charge of my own
don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into
else's plan. And
guess what they have planned for you ? not much."
By the late great,
So when someone tells me that
you can't do Internet Marketing and says only 2% of the people
who try ever succeed. Ask them what makes them so sure that you
can't, have you ever truly tried. I have been told by others
that it wouldn't work and got funny looks when I tell them what
I am doing. Most people do not know anything about the
internet or internet marketing but they will be the first to tell you, you can't do it!
There is a good reason why
most people don't succeed. They jump into this because they hear
all the get rich quick stories and think someone is going to do
all the work for them. Then they find out, it is work!
If you are considering doing
this for a living, you need to be ready to learn at all times,
love a challenge and be willing to give it your all. Above all,
never quit, the quit part is why most people don't succeed! The
learning part is what usually brings, the quitting part. They
think they can't learn it, but you can!
I believe if you can find the
below qualities in yourself, then you have a good chance at
being an Internet Marketer.
Here are some of the things I
had to overcome to get to where I am today.
The lack of knowledge of
computers and the Internet.
How to build web pages.
Learning the HTML needed
to help make web pages.
What others thought.
How to build an email
The fear of running a
Finding people willing
to help you when you are trying to learn.
These and many more have stood
in my way but if I hadn't started, I would not be here today!
I give my blessing to all
try this or any other venture in life and I will help those that
