Yesterday, I got an email from an old friend. We are not close friends, but friends nonetheless. We know each other online, and have been friendly over the years. I will call my friend Steve.
Steve has, over the years, expressed to me that his goal is to start making money online. He wants to move out of the USA, and he feels (and rightly so) that having an online business is a key to being able to make such a move. I would say that Steve has been telling me of his plan for the past 5 to 7 years. Each time that he mentions it to me, I tell him that I would be happy to help him any way that I can, I will even build him a great site on which he can certainly make money. It always seems that if I mention this to him, I don’t hear from him again, at least for a very long time. I mean, like I may not hear from him for 6 months or a year, when he again tells me that he wants to get a website up and operating so that he can make some money online. OK… we are back again at square one, and I tell him that I am willing to help him achieve his goal.
So, yesterday I hear from him again. I express the same thoughts to him, and point him to this website so he can let me know what kinds of help I can give him. Have not heard back from him yet, but I hope that he will write back and start moving forward with his dream.
Do you have a dream?
Does your dream involve independence from some sort of job? If so, the internet is the key to fulfilling your dream. I can help you with that, and it does not have to be expensive either. Know what? If you are a person with some technical skills, you can probably do it yourself too! But, if you hire somebody to help you (like me!), I believe that you can achieve your dream years faster than if you do it on your own, unless you have experience and know what to do. Look at Steve, he has been “wanting to” get it done for at least 6 to 7 years that I am aware of, but so far he has yet to start. I think there is a good chance that if Steve sought help with his goal, he could have probably already achieved what he has been wanting to do.
Think about it when your alarm starts ringing on Monday morning and you have to drag yourself out of bed to go drive that bus, work at the factory, sit in that cubicle or whatever it is that you do for a living. When you have that last cup of coffee before heading out into the increasingly colder weather, or you scrape the ice off your windshield so you can go to that job. If you just keep doing the same old monotony that you do every day, 5 or 6 days per week… well, in another 10 years it is very likely that you will still be doing the same thing. Will Steve still have his dream of living in a foreign country where the weather is warm and the beers are cold? Will have have to take a break from hanging out at the pool side so he can check his e-commerce sales? Well, the odds are that Steve will still be scraping his windshield and fighting traffic on his way to that beautiful cubicle job. If Steve took some action and actually started putting is dream into motion, he could be living a much different life in 10 years. Maybe a few years down the road, when Steve sends me another email, it will be so that we can compare our internet commerce results, instead of telling me that he is still dreaming.
