Yep, that's right!
Whoa...bet you might have been expecting something else?
Well let me explain...
Over the last year, I've been doing a lot of cool stuff that I never thought I would be. Jan 4, 2010 my deli opened here in Orlando and we're now a Top 50 rated restaurant in Orlando.
I also started taking my business much more seriously and focusing on my PASSION which is product creation in the IM niche.
The funny part about this whole thing is this all seems just so simple looking back...but it took me a long time to really get something going and out there.
Sure, I've created products before...
But I didn't spend all my working moments focusing on launching, creating, and systemitizing my processes until about 5 months ago.
See...back in December, I hit a milestone.
My deli was about a year old, growing steadily, and I had more time to spend intellectually plotting out my business. In 2009 and 1st half of 2010, I spent my time growing my list of prospects through Free WSOs and Adswaps and while I made decent money doing this, I wasn't having a lot of fun.
I didn't really spend my time focused on the things that I would just do because I loved them.
That's the secret: build a business around something you'd do for free just because you love it...
Now, I'm sure many will disagree and that's great...the whole of a forum is to be open, honest, and get other people's opinion...and I'm by no means anywhere in the same breath as the smartest people on this forum...so whatever.
But to me, everything changed when I started building more products, setting them up, finding ways to do it faster w/o reducing quality, and just learning new stuff I could teach to people who didn't have quite the curiosity level that I did.
And you know what...I started hooking up with more people.
1. More People wanted to work with me.
2. I met more friends through my customer lists.
3. I got increased sales from my list b/c my passion shone through.
4. And Overall, I was a hell of a lot happier.
In my opinion, many people out here on the forum are looking at this business wrong.
We're in the information business...one way or another. We get paid because we have the information.
It really doesn't matter if you're building adsense stuff or offline marketing...you're paid for your information.
Who the hell wants to learn information on a subject they don't like?
Want to get more money? Learn more information...
Want to learn more information? Do something you like...
By that logic...
Earn more money= Do Something you like...
Now some might disagree again...but that's cool. If you're reading this right now to this point, hopefully you're starting to see the power of loving what you do.
And maybe internet marketing isn't something you love...
That's ok...in the scope of your life...do what you love and you'll make more money.
The economy won't affect you b/c you'll be better than others.
You'll adapt when technology changes...
And most importantly, you'll get a lot more people being magnetically and cosmically placed into your life to help you get ahead, live a more rich lifestyle, and have more "wealth" (not money...wealth...big difference) into your life.
I hope this makes a difference for you and if not, thanks for spending the time reading it.
