Sheep Spend and Lose, Leaders Make Money

Written by Sopan Greene

Remember that leaders spend more money on learning and growing, but they do their homework and work hard to make money.

Sheep followrepparttar herd blindly with their wallets open hoping someone else will will do their work for them. Jumping intorepparttar 117549 newest multi-level marketing program will drain your wallet and your faith in humanity.

You're checking out internet marketing? Great! Just be sure to market what you're passionate about so you don't bail offrepparttar 117550 ship atrepparttar 117551 first sign of crashing waves and high winds. There will be obstacles andrepparttar 117552 way to go through them is to be putting your time, energy and money into work you're passionate about.

Be smart. Don't join any program that hasn't been around and proven itself. There are a lot of programs popping up that look like you can join and make a lot of money fromrepparttar 117553 "spill factor." It's a myth. I've been onrepparttar 117554 receiving end of that one and saw many others there with me. I even created a lot of spill and saw it go away a few months later.

Yes, you can make money from getting "spill," butrepparttar 117555 people who really benefit arerepparttar 117556 ones CREATINGrepparttar 117557 spill. Notrepparttar 117558 receiversofrepparttar 117559 spill. Like everything in life,repparttar 117560 fruits go to those who providerepparttar 117561 labor.

Would you rather receiverepparttar 117562 benefits of being Bill Gates who created Microsoft or receiverepparttar 117563 benefits of getting welfare because you signed up forrepparttar 117564 program and chose not to work? (Which isrepparttar 117565 same as signing up for a multi-level program that you don't do any work on building yourself). Forgetrepparttar 117566 money, which one is more satisfying to your soul?

Nothing against these programs, as with everything, 20% ofrepparttar 117567 people involved make 80% ofrepparttar 117568 money. That's true in every industry and yes, some people make a lot of money, but they work their butts off to get there. They deserverepparttar 117569 money they EARN.

If you're looking for a free ride, it aint gonna happen my friend. It takes commitment and a good work ethic to produce results no matter what you're doing.

A big problem with these programs is that almost everyone who jumps in is hoping to pay some cash inrepparttar 117570 hopes of cashing out like they bought a lottery ticket.

Business opportunities aren't lottery tickets. I know this flies againstrepparttar 117571 lack of common sense used byrepparttar 117572 "biz op seeking herd of sheep," but it'srepparttar 117573 flat out truth. Do you know of ANY business that generated a lot of money without someone or many someones putting in hard work?

The Lure of Easy Money

The Lure of Easy Money

2002 Elena Fawkner

You might be forgiven for thinking that competition is fierce if you run an online business. After all, every day - day in, day out - you, me and everyone else is constantly bombarded by offers from every man and his dog for various programs that promise usrepparttar means to earn an income from home.

After a while, of course, you begin to recognize that these programs are not worthrepparttar 117548 paper they're written on andrepparttar 117549 people pushing them are little more than con artists (or worse).

A common theme in all of these offers isrepparttar 117550 lack of effort required to begin making a significant income. Witness all repparttar 117551 "Make money while you sleep!", "We do allrepparttar 117552 work!", "$3,000 per week for two hours work!", "Big money, no experience required!" subject lines in your inbox this morning.

The reason these types of offers are so prevalent, of course, is thatrepparttar 117553 notion of something for nothing is seductive. Who on earth in their right mind would actually choose to spend 40 hours per week working for $80,000 per year when they can earnrepparttar 117554 same amount working only 2 hours each week? No one. The only problem is, working 2 hours a week and making $80K isn't going to happen unless that two hours is spent managing your multi-million dollar portfolio. And even then you'd most likely be spending more than a lousy couple of hours a week.

Common sense tells us that this must be so. But common sense is a rare commodity inrepparttar 117555 real world and even rarer when it comes to anything to do withrepparttar 117556 Internet, an unreal world if ever there was one.

There are a LOT of people running so-called "Internet businesses". A goodly proportion of these people arerepparttar 117557 ones toutingrepparttar 117558 aforementioned "bizopp" pipedreams. This is good news for you, believe it or not. Why? Because, despite how it may sometimes seem, your REAL competition is relatively small in number. After all, if 98% of those doing business online are unsuccessful (and promoting get rich quick schemes isrepparttar 117559 best way I know to make it into that elite group of 98 percenters), that leavesrepparttar 117560 field wide open for repparttar 117561 2% who are actually prepared to do some real work.
