My Mum's really struggling and I have a few friends who ain't doing too well either, and I've tryed to teach them about Internet Marketing but they DON'T BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES! .
I was at my friends flat a few days ago and I had $400 come into my Paypal that day. I showed my friend this and I tryed explaining that people can, do and will make money online.
I told him about selling solutions. I told him about how making a product digitally is really cheap. I told him how he could be making dollar.
Then I was hit with - "Nah I can't do that man"
WHAT? - I convinved him that he could quickly. I know the guy, he has talent, he's just abit down on his luck.
Then he hit me with - "Yeah but what solutions do you sell, I wouldn't know the first thing"
YEAH - That's why you do market research. I told him about how there are people online making money from anything to "weight loss" to "fishing techniques" to "dog training" to "xbox modding".
Then I was hit with - "Yeah but then I'll be in competition with you"
If that was the case, then I am in competition with MILLIONS of people. No worries mate - the internet is close to unlimited!
Then another excuse, then another. I ended up deciding that I'll let him take a look at his life - I told him "look mate, your really struggling, and if you don't try to do something about it then your always going to be in a bad way".
I left him to sleep on that. I hope he comes round and starts trying to sort his stuff out.
Anybody else had similiar experiences with family or friends who just think they should "leave online business to you, and do something else"?
