You and 95% of others. And it ain't gonna work!
Why, I wonder?
Yes, we've all been to "University of Life" and we all think that we've picked up enough skills along way. Certainly, many of them are transferable.
We've all worked for plenty of awful bosses so we all KNOW we can do a better job, don't we?
We don't like to admit that we don't know everything and we don't like to ask what we feel are stupid questions. So this is what we do -- throw ourselves headlong and unprepared, merely setting ourselves up for disappointment and failure.
Sometimes in arrogance, other times in ignorance, but plain sad fact is and, it should now seem obvious in light of above fictional story, that if you'd spent first weeks or months reading "Rocket Science for Dummies", you might have had a chance of building a better rocket and of collecting big bonus in a few months time.
Face it, without some study and preparation, you are no more likely to make money in first days of your fledgling Internet career than you are of doing rocket science.
So step back from wildly promoting that sure-fire program via 2 million ways that don't work and study what does.
Remember hare and tortoise?
Think long-term. The way to become a soaring success is NOT just to light blue touch-paper and retire!
