All Warriors are marketers, that is what the place is about, right?
The two kinds?:
1) The Warrior who sells stuff to people.
2) The Warrior who finds people to sell stuff to.
Do you agree? There is no right or wrong, successful Warriors can be found in both types, but you will probably find more Warrior FAILURE in group one. Why?
Well, here is the good news...and the bad news...
Good news is the Warrior who finds people first, has a faster, easier route to success.
The bad news? Most Warriors chose to find stuff first, the someone to sell it to.
It is possible to do both and to switch up whenever you want to. Well you know how the advice is skewed from the viewpoint of the person giving it, right? And one viewpoint might not be your cup of tea, so keep an open mind when choosing which type of a Warrior you most want to be.
See, MOST people, they go hard on one route or the other. The IM TRAP, is like the first mouse trap with cheese the mouse comes across. Likewise, it is often the first successful story you believe which colors your decision on whether to try to eat that cheese, or bypass it and look for something else.
Some would say, choices are good. The more choices you have, the greater the chance of your success. Does reality bear this out? Don't take my word for it, a better idea is for you to check out your own position as of TODAY.
Right now. Are you searching for prospects, looking for clients, customers or consumers? Are you chasing after contacts? If so, you are in the majority, the Warrior who is trying to sell something to SOMEONE, somewhere, sometime.
But consider this: people are already spending money, place your cart on their path. For example, at little carnivals, street fairs, and events like St. Patrick's Day...you'll find the hot dog vendors, the snow cone folks, the ice cream, the sandwiches, the corn dogs. All kinds of little booths.
Even though there is a LOT of competition, you know people will be spending money on things to eat. Try to sell rugs, or soap or tires at one of these...and you're in for a long day.
If you've been at this awhile, and you sometimes get the feeling that something isn't quite right (because your cash flow dwindles or becomes extinct)...this is a good time to check back to see if you are a number 1 or 2, and perhaps consider trying the other way.
You will find success with both types, but for those of you in a hurry, and you think today is better than next week to get some money in your pocket...maybe spend a little time and see where the next little street fair is going and put your candy apple cart right in the middle of the other vendors. But don't be the third snow cone place, unless you are half their price and give out twice as much snow.
