More Guidelines| Article #144 :GET RICH QUICKLY? NOT LIKELY
It's a hard thing to do. We've just lost our job, or just plain got fed up with it. We've decided that we're going to make a living on the Internet. We have no idea what we want to do but we do know that we need to start making money and fast. We have it all figured out. We're going to do a search for something that promises us we're going to make X number of dollars in our first 30 days. We find an amount we can live with at one of those really cool sites and we sign up.
30 days later we're still broke and we wonder why.
It's not totally your fault. These companies pray on people like us. They know we don't want to go to that lousy job anymore. They know we want instant riches. So they promise us the moon, hoping and knowing that we're going to pay them the 20 bucks a month to make some obscene amount of money. But it never happens. We're disillusioned, frustrated and clueless as to where to turn. We don't know who to trust and we're at our wits end.
As I said, it's not totally your fault. But you are going to have to shoulder some of the blame. Nobody can pay $20 a month for a business and expect to make any kind of real money. If you were going to open up a candy store on the corner you'd have thousands of dollars in expenses in both rent and inventory. Why should online be any different? It's not. No, you don't have to spend nearly as much money as you do in the "real" world, but some investment is going to be required. It is a fact of life that we need to learn to accept. Otherwise, you're just headed for more heartache.
So what's the answer? The answer is to have a realistic outlook on what is possible. Aside from that, you need to get an education. Hopefully, this site will help provide you with some of that education. But it can't do it all. Why? Because there are too many variables in making a living online. Everyone has different skills and interests. One person may be very technically adept while another can't find the on switch of his computer. These people are not going to go in the same direction.
The most important thing is to sit down and make a game plan. Figure out how much you can afford to spend and what you can reasonably expect to get back from that investment. Figure out where your strengths are. What do you like? What do you hate? There has to be something that you are naturally good at or have an interest in that will give you a head start.
No, you can't get rich quick on the Internet. But with a little planning and determination, you can eventually reach a monthly income that will sustain you in the life you are accustomed to.
