Anyway, today I met with another offline client to discuss their needs and how I could help them.
The meeting lasted about an hour and I walked away with a check for $500. I didn't ask for any money. The guy just wrote the check and handed it to me and said can we get started with this?
Sometimes I find myself thinking about this and wondering why do I spend time working online building sites when it seems so much simpler and quicker to make money working with offline businesses.
Of course, the main reasons I do it are for (1) the challenge and (2) the residual income "make money while I sleep" aspect.
But sometimes I do wonder if it is the best use of my time. It almost seems like I'm going against the grain with my online efforts and making money is more difficult and more time consuming rather than easier.
Has anybody else noticed this?
Why do you spend so much time trying to build Internet properties and make money instead of just building a local business helping the businesses / organizations in your local community?
Do you do it for the challenge, the residual income, both or something else?
Do you do it because you have read so many sales pages you believe making money online is the easiest way to do it? I definitely do not believe this is true based on my own experience in working online and offline.
