I can't remember a day since I first logged on to Internet that I haven't been approached by someone claiming they can make all my dreams come true through Internet Marketing.
At first I said, yeah right, but offers just kept coming and coming and coming until finally I said...
"Honey, could you pass milk?"
Well, I wasn't thinking out loud at dinner table, I was keeping it to myself. What I was thinking, however, was this.
If all those idiots sending me offers are claiming they can make money on Internet, then there has to be at least a few people that actually have made money inspiring them, right?
So I looked, and there was!
Yes, upon looking I did actually find proof of real, live, people making money selling products and information over Internet.
Cool, I thought. If they can do it, then I can, too!
Upon realizing this, I then made STUPID mistake of following direction of inspired idiots instead of real marketers that were actually making money.
Why, you say?
The inspired idiot's stuff was free and real marketer's stuff cost money. (That right there ought to have taught me something!)
So, with zest, zip, vim, and vigor, off I went raving about like a true inspired idiot!
And guess what?! All of other inspired idiot's promises came true!
I made a six figure income! ($0000.00 has six figures, you know)
I fired my boss! (and my paycheck!)
I was working from home! (heck, I did everything from home. I couldn't afford to leave house.)
I was my own boss! (my wife quit speaking to me)
I had a residual income! (what better word for change scraped out of depths of furniture than 'residual')
I was an Internet Marketer on inspired idiot's path to glory and nothing could stop my drive towards success! (until bank repossessed my pick-up that is)
Then, suddenly, with an even stronger thirst to succeed I said...
"Honey, could you pass milk...? Never mind, there isn't any. Honey? Honey? Darn, I could have sworn I was married."
But it mattered not because I had work to do! I had to spend countless hours reading other inspired idiot's email. I had to send my own email back for other inspired idiot's to read. Plus, I had to blast ads to free classified and free for all sites that no one, not even me, ever visited.
