Happy Thanks Giving - My gift to You.

15 replies
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I thought I would share something that may benefit 97% of the people on this forum.

I recently read a post about a member who said he is done posting in this section and the reasons why. I was very happy about what he wrote and wanted to put my spin on things.

Really quickly, I was born into a family business which I worked in until I was around 20 years old. I always had the spirit of an entrepreneur in me. I worked 15 years in automotive industry starting as a mechanic and working my way up to sales manager of 2 stores.

I started several businesses failed at some and had success with others. Here is where my gift comes in.

If you are serious about being successful and making an income selling offline services to businesses, get off this forum.

You do not need any more information to be successful than you already have. Let me break it down for you.

I mentioned 97%. The other 3% on this forum are making money and having success doing what they do for a living. They do not need my advice and will agree 100% with what I am about to tell you.

1. There is no easy way. Being successful takes work. Hard work. Might was well understand that you are going to have to put in the labor, get on the phone, make calls, visit businesses, and put up with all the BS that comes along with it.

2. There is no magic script that will make customers run to you, there is no magic lead source, there is no magic widget or plugin, there is no email you can send that will make this easy.

Some people make their living selling you the magic bullets. Ask your self, how many of these magic bullets have you bought? Are you making money now? Stop buying magic bullets. There is no magic pill.

Next time you see a WSO named Lead Generation CRUSHER! thats promises business owners will be calling you non stop begging you to sell them. ITS BS. That does not happen, ever!.

3. Hard work does it. That is the only magic. Hard work day after day consistently. You have to take action. Day after day. You get better as time goes on. You learn as time goes on and you do reps. You learn how to spot a stroker who is going to waste your time. You learn how to ask questions to see if this guy is a stroker. You learn how to take it away, challenge people, be direct so you do not waste your time.

You get good over time but you must take action. Day after day. What we do on this forum, at least 97% of us is we keep looking for the magic bullets that will make this easy and eliminate the grunt work.

What the 3% on here do is exactly what I described. Then they make some spending cash by selling you LOCAL MARKETING DOMINATOR because they know you are not taking action and you are looking for magic pills.

4. My DMO daily method of operation.
1. I am up at 6:30
2. I read and write to learn, get focused, and to keep my state of mind healthy.
3. I make calls from 9 to 11am M-F. I make 20 highly targeted calls a day and I do it everyday MON _ THURS.
4. From 11 to 5,6,7,8, or 1am i am designing and fulfilling order.
5. If I get done I go to the GYM.

Sound like fun? Go work a job from 9am to 9pm M-S making $5000-$7000 a month. See what kind of life that is. Why would making $8000 from home be any peachier? Its not.

There is no easy way. It takes hard work.
There is no magic bullet, script, or lead source.
Action over time does it.

Why is this a gift? Well if you are not willing to accept what I wrote as your future lifestyle you might was well go apply for a job because there is no easy way to do this stuff.

It can not be laid out any more clearer.
Enjoy the Holiday.

      Great post but I have to disagree with you when you say:

      There is no magic pill.

      Yes there is, it is between your ears and it is called a brain. There's a guy selling a class on how to master your brain (my words) for $997. He has them standing in line to buy.

      You see kind sir, he is using his magic pill to sell people what they already know but are too afraid to put into action.

      As a sidenote, Mr. Disney made billions with magic. He simply used his magic pill and turned nothing into something.

      Happy T-Day to you too. May sunshine always illuminate your path.

          Madlion,

          YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!

          Really? There's no magic bullet? No WSO that will bring me millions while I sip margaritas on the beach? Are you trying to say that there are no 'get rich quick' secrets in offline marketing? You're telling me that success equals a multitude of hours of hard work?

          I hope you're just joking, because otherwise this Thanksgiving thread is going to be the cause of lots of over-salted turkeys -- due to the abundance of tears these concepts will cause to Warriors to shed...

            I am sure this post ruffled some feathers.

            I was just tired of seeing all these Super Customer Rampage WSOs and seeing no one actually posting results or real numbers in the reviews. Like I generated 3 leads. Or I used this and sent 100 emails, generated 5 leads, made 1 sale. Nothing. Only hype and BS.
            If I truly found a Market Nuclear Blaster that caused all the business owners to mail me checks without me doing anything, I would not share it with anyone and if I did it would be after I used the hell out of it and beat it like a dead mule. Then I would sell it for $7 a pop.

        We are in agreement and you are right.
        I spend alot of time everyday getting weeds out of my garden, and planting good seeds. I can not stop even for one day. The weeds are always coming.
        This is like a second job but very important because as you mentioned the brain (magic pill) will be the cause of success or the cause of failure.

    Well, not everyone here is born into family business or have same background like yours, most of us are here for learning ( thanks to those who share)

      Maestro,

      Not to be an a hole but I am going to. (for your benefit)

      I was born into a family business and yes what I learned from it is that your business is 24/7 nonstop. It is more work and responsibility than a job. It never ends. You cant take a day off or call in sick. It is up to you and nothing happens with out you. You can not leave to employees. They are not owners and will not treat it as such.

      What I did not tell you was that the business was a traveling carnival. An amusement company. Rides game food. I was born a carny. Carnys are notorious for no teeth bottom of the barrel nomadic types, criminals, and ex cons.

      My father did not go to high school and has little formal education. Like Henry Ford. He thought school was a waste of my time. The skills you learn as a Carny are good for somethings but not in corporate America. The only thing I gained from it was how to hustle.

      Maybe that is why I did good in the car business. I say all this to say I did gain a bunch of knowledge and wisdom from the experience but also a lot of garbage that even to this day is a thorn in my ass.

      I probably have to do more mental work than anyone else on this forum to function in normal society everyday. I never said it was easy and quite frankly my life would be easier punching a clock and doing manual labor.

      So stop making excuses and get to work. If I can do it you can do it. I was born a loser in many regards and had more baggage than anyone should have to deal with.

      There are no excuses. No alibis any longer. You got this.

    This is the truth. Magic bullets will make you excited when you will be reading it. After the implementation, it will become meaningless to you.

    Newbies: Get a WSO only when you understand exactly how it will help you. Only then. Will it help you by giving you a product or service to provide to clients? OK. But don't expect it to mow your lawn, do your dishes and jump up and sell itself. Will it help you manage your sales funnel better? OK. But don't expect it to bring you an incoming tide of new prospects who are ready to fall down and give you their wallets. Will it help you market more effectively? OK. But don't expect it to take the place of your personal presence in the marketplace, getting known as "the person who does X".

    Secret: you have to stick with it past the point where you're uncomfortable, in the beginning. Well past the point of feeling uncomfortable.

    I've painted watercolors...I've written stories...I've cleaned up messy construction sites. I can't tell you of a single time working on any of these projects where it didn't look like a total piece of crap, waste of time, a total disaster. And every time, I've pulled it out of the fire and gotten a nice end product.

    In the middle of the project, it looks like a disaster. Can you push past your uncomfortableness? Keep moving? Success takes action.

      And Jason Keeps it real.
      I have benefited greatly from many of his posts. He also shares a lot of info on sales that most would charge for on here and also on the telemarketer forum.
      He is great with scripts and understands the Psychology of making a sale.

      Thank you Jason for all your truthful sharings.

    This is mad truth. I have spent way way way too much on magic pills, and they are only guides, implementation of just one with persistence is the only way for any magic to happen.
