GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES?
I could turn
this page into a long, colorful page that promised you that if
you read it to the end and click the provided link that you
could be making in excess of $ (some high figure) in one month.
I would then fill it with graphics and testimonials and include
a java script app that gave you a reduced price for the deal if
you just don’t leave.
would be a collection of “.PDF” files telling you endless
methods and success stories from famous internet GET RICH GURUS
some recordings in mp3 format. If my site is really something,
part of your reward for your money might be an instant web site
(including a sales page and checkout form just like mine) for
which, you can pay extra to get your own domain name and a
“DELUX HOSTING PLAN” to sell my products. I also have
included in my fine print that I will sell your email address
and any other information you may include to an indeterminate
number of internet marketing spammers.
happened to real ideas and thinking? Is everyone on the net a
drone? When will it all stop?
all stops with you! The thinking that makes you click on
these links is like a bad habit. It promises you satisfaction
but never satisfies. Yes, you might find some gleanings of
information that is legitimate, helpful, and has some
application if you apply it correctly, but for the most part you
would do much better if you took a different road.
stories of people who have made that extra money that is needed
or launched out on a new successful career are outside the realm
of the scene mentioned above or anything much like it.
One story I
remember is of a woman who had a condescending husband that gave
her $2,000. “Start-up” money for a new business. He was then
telling a friend (one of his corporate cronies) how the money
would soon be gone and his wife would soon forget her ambitions
and return to her role as stay at home mother and wife.
As it turns
out his wife was more ingenious, productive and fruitful than
this cigar smoking corporate big-wig imagined. In a short while
she had compiled a collection of products that could be easily
purchased wholesale. These were packaged together with other
matching or like products that house wives (her target market)
would love to have but usually had to buy separately and match
by themselves. An example would be something like: dish towels,
serving trays, utensils, place mats, and napkins with matching
rings. She then had these professionally photographed and put
into a brochure to be mailed out to her prospective customers.
Placing a small ad in publications that she liked to read along
with the mailed brochures got her sales started.
When the money
started coming in, she reinvested it in more product; the
brochure turned into a small catalogue, the ad size grew and
within two years time, her husband (eating crow) quit his
corporate position and joined her in her business which was then
grossing $2,000,000 per year.
Another that I
love is my friend who started a million dollar business on the
back of a napkin. At a lunch with a friend, he drew rough
plans for a remodel job for his friend’s house on his napkin.
He then made a few calls to other friends in the construction
business and arranged for detailed drawings, permits, and
sub-contracted labor. Within a short while the remodel was
completed and a construction management business was born. The
business was grossing in excess of $3,000,000 in two years.
stories are true! That is part of the excitement. If you
look closely you will see some elements that are missing in the
“get rich quick” scenarios. The main elements that I notice are
thoughtfulness, organization, ingenuity, and hard work. One
other not specifically mentioned that I know was a part of the
construction management venture and highly suspect was a part of
the other is prayer. So built in is a touch of the Devine.
So there you
have a real article about real people on a real web site
including a “plug” for my best friend (God and His son, Jesus).
Hopefully it is more wholesome and tasty than some of those
other things you might find on the web.
Try this at
home. It can’t hurt and
it might just turn out to be something for you. P.S. you can
click off of this sight or to another page and you won’t be
stopped by a pop-up sales banner. That should be nice.
