A Little Fire Side Chat
I wanted to take a few minutes to sit and talk about the realities of working on the internet. I also wanted to talk a little bit about working a normal job out there in the real world.
I do both so I regularly have epiphanies about what I am doing and why I do it. This is what I want to share with you today. I also do other stuff and will touch on that a little bit.
First thing I would like to do is clear up any misconceptions concerning the ‘dream aspect’ of working on line. For those people who do not know anything about working on line, it tends to have a dreamy persona.
Visions of sitting by the pool somewhere, soaking up the sun and sucking down a cold one is one of the more popular ones I hear about. Mine was sitting by a fire pit, enjoying some friends company in a woodsy setting while typing out a bit of info here and there on my computer.
Truth is, getting started is work. If you want to reach the goal of making enough money to actually relax a bit and enjoy life, take back some of that time, and be no ones employee ~ one must work diligently and be dedicated to the goal. Truth is, working on line like I am doing, is still working. The benefit is that I get to choose my hours. I don’t have to answer to anyone. I get paid in direct correlation to my own work ethics. I work hard, I get paid well. I work leisurely, I get a leisurely pay check.
Truth is, if someone knocks on the door while you are working, You can answer the door, sit and have a cup of coffee and get back to it when the visit is done and not have to worry about a boss telling you to get back to work or worse, firing you because life took precedent over their bottom line.
Truth is, I can take a vacation, yes, I will bring my computer and probably do some work while vacationing. I won’t do that on all vacations. Bet you can’t do that with a regular job.
There are many benefits to working online. Don’t be fooled by the hype out there. Don’t buy into the whole ‘get rich’ jargon. Some things remain true and will continue to remain true for a long time to come… if it sounds too good to be true ~ it probably is!
Truth is, if you are serious about taking back your time, you will probably have to transition from a regular job to working on line. You probably have to create that second income that will eventually replace your 1st income and allow you to quit that regular job. I tell you now, not everyone can do it. You have to be dedicated. You have to be willing to do the work.
Truth is, nothing is free! There are thousands of places you can go to learn about working on line. Thousands of places that will help you build a website. Thousands of places that will take your money and give you a few quick steps to copy and paste and post a website. There are thousands of places that leave you with a bad taste in your mouth for working on line. Those thousands of places will never get you to where you want to be.
My truth is, I have bought into several of those ‘thousands of places’ and found out the hard way that my hard earned money and valuable time was taken away from me because of those thousands of promises out there that were never able to come through and give me what I needed to be successful as an on line entrepreneur, those things that were promised to me if I signed up with them.
I am a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. I will continue to be a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. While I am learning EVERYTHING I need to know to grow a successful business on line, I am creating that success. The tools available to me, any time, day or night, week day or week end, are the best tools I have ever utilized on the web and I have been on the web for 22 years. I have been in marketing for as many. I have tried the pyramid schemes, network marketing from telephone companies to nutritional supplements programs.
What Wealthy Affiliate offers is beyond anything I could have even imagined. If you were to go it alone, you would have to pay for a place to ‘house’ your website, register a domain name, build the website, update the website, (what is involved in building a successful website is incredibly intensive ~ I had no idea of what was involved long term), and the cost.
Believe me when I say that the cost of being a premium member with Wealthy Affiliate is beyond worthwhile. For the cost of a monthly membership, it is truly insane what you get in return. Then you have the opportunity to pay an annual membership fee which is even more incredible. If you were to calculate the cost of ANY other place on the internet, what you get for the return ~ Wealthy Affiliate is a complete no brainer.
If you have ever considered taking that step to being your own boss, the artist painting the picture that is your life, check out what you get with Wealthy Affiliate ~ for free ~ what you get as a premium member ~ (in fact, an annual payment to Wealthy Affiliate is more than likely less than you would pay ‘per month’ in any other program) after you have bought all their gadgets to be successful), and compare that to ANY place on the internet and you will know that the very best you can do is Wealthy Affiliate.
