Q: How do the people that start out like you and me within a very short amount of time make a 6 figure income? What’s the catch that we are all missing?
A: Hi Deborah–
The “catch” is that most of them aren’t making a 6-figure income in a short period of time. In most cases, or at least in stories I feel I can believe, the “overnight” success actually comes after 3-5 years of hard work to get where they want to be. For example, my coach, Alexandria Brown, the Ezine Queen, (I’m in her Marketing Mastery program) started building her online business roughly around the year 2002 or so, but it’s only been in the last 3 years that her income has truly skyrocketed. In the intervening 3 years, she was slowly building her business just like the rest of us, until suddenly she “arrived”, so it appeared, out of nowhere. One of the key ingredients to her success, I believe, is that she found a niche and stuck to it. So many times I see my clients flounder and change their minds about what they want to do (I am also terribly guilty of this), without giving themselves a reasonable amount of time to build their brand and get known in their field.
Even now that she’s “arrived”, she’s still working full days to build the business, although she does have a large virtual team that supports her. The moral of the story is that the 4-hour work week, for most of us, is simply a myth.
The Internet is littered with get rich quick propaganda, and for a very select few, it may truly happen that quickly. However, for the most part, the ability to do that is simply hype and involves the selling of false hope to a desperate audience.
And, if it were truly so easy to get rich quick on the Internet, wouldn’t everybody be doing it? <g>
