I'm Fed Up With Selling My Soul Are You?

18 replies
I had a revelation 2day and I am no longer going to sell my soul in return for a click.

Who am I?
Tony Balthazar, 44 formally from the UK now living in Sweden.

I lost my job winter of 2008 (big recession cut's) and finally decided to take the plunge and move to my my partner's home land. something she was wanting to get me to do since the birth of our second child, Kyle who is now 6yrs old. I don't speak Swedish so I just rely on online marketing to bring home the bread.

I'm no big shot marketer, just someone who has a few sites that work and far too many that don't. Trying to figure out what needs to be done on those that don't work, but with the 'new me' a lot of them will be getting deleted.

The Sites I will keep are just going to be dedicated to giving rather than taking (does that make sense to you?) No more crappy blog posts, If I don't have something valuable, or something that I believe the reader wants to hear, well I just won't post.

So what Happens Now.

From NOW I mean this very second I only want to add value to who ever lands on any of my websites, I tell you a few of them are going to get deleted too. I am just not happy promoting something that I either 'Don't believe in' or 'Don't believe in the person behind the product'. Something I have been thinking long and hard about. I keep hearing Tiffany Dow say the same thing.

Yes I am in this internet marketing niche to make money, but not at the expense of my conscience or values being compromised.

Why the change?

Friday night I spent 2 hours on Skype helping a fellow WA member get the hang of a few things and speaking about how to set up his campaign nothing had made me feel that good in a very long time. Just being able to help him out.

I was a corporate trainer for 20 years in the UK and nothing pleased me more than knowing that I helping folks to better themselves and move forward. Seeing the looks on the faces of my students as they reached the "aha moment" that was and always will be priceless. I want to start helping a lot more people reach their goals and achieve.

Why am I hear posting now?

I just finished listening to an interview between Craig Desorcy, and I think that it just may change my life (just as the title to the email said)!

I recently bought the domain "Real Make Money Online" I thought long and hard about putting it in the pile to be deleted but I think that we (anyone who cares) can actually use it to give something back and add some real help and value.

From experience I really don't expect the internet marketing community to want to get involved in this new site, the reason being they are far too busy wanting to work on their own businesses. BUT...

I want to invite anyone that wants to post valuable help on that blog to do so. Skype me on tony.bb1 If you want to give a little back on a site that isn't owned by you.

I have not changed the site so you can see who is is that I respect in the "IM" world and what I use as far as tools.

What's in it for you?
Nothing I can give to you really Just a link in you post to where you want, but I will check that it's truly a place that we want out readers to go.

I do hope that this message reaches those who can see it for what it is and are also fed up with selling their soul. Thanks for reading.. Sorry it was a long one.

    Tony Robbins would applaud you and I do too.

    Like Jill, I believe you'll find your new stance translating into a real, sustainable business.

    Well done and I have never so much as rented my soul!

      I hear you Amanda, but I mean in "renting my soul" that I would promote something without true belief that it would REALLY benefit tose who bought it. Like all those forex products and such, and I am sorry that I ever did that. I won't be making that error ever again

        Tony, welcome back from the dark side. You'll find that once again holding clear title to your soul is very satisfying.

          Some things in life are priceless, and not just those you can't buy with Mastercard. Your soul is one of them.

          I'm willing to bet success is going to come a whole lot sooner and be a helluva lot bigger for you.

        What do you mean by "all those forex products?"

        Those forex products you bought or those you sold as an affiliate?

    Good for you! I have several friends that have gone through the same pattern. None of them were black hatters or doing anything really sleazy but they just felt they were selling the dreams instead of the reality. It feels a lot better to offer things of value whether it is great content or a great product.

    Woohoo! and good for you!!!

    You are the type of person who should be in our international network of entrepreneurs.

    It is all about giving and cooperation rather than competition.

    And yes, I would love to blog on your site. I love to give and help.

    Once when I was really at my highest in my offline business, I was given a project to go out and give money away to people. No strings attached. No names. I just handed them money.

    You would not believe the number of people when offered cash for nothing would not take it because they were afraid.

    Most people are very skeptical of anything for free.

    I will skype you.

    I have always told people, chase after money and it wil ellude you. Give valuable service that you love to do and money will never be an issue.

    44 days in and we broke the $10K a month recurring bench mark.
