Hey internet land, there are a few things I wanted to share today and Im so glad that there is a forum called the internet to share these thoughts with you. As I was studying some information last night, a few things came to mind that definitely bared some talking about. I have watched and continue to follow some great people online in internet marketing that are doing some amazing things. People like Deagan Smith, Jonathan Budd, Mike Dillard, Mark Hoverson, Ankur Anguwal, Frank Kern, Mike Filsame, Ryan Deiss, and the list goes on. However, there is 1 constant that I see among all these great leaders… THEY MAKE A TON OF MONEY AND HAVE RESULTS. Now when I say they make a ton, I mean a few names in the previous sentence are just absolutely crushing it. And regardles, REGARDLESS, of how you feel personally about any of them, you can’t deny their results. Not only can you not deny the results, you can’t deny the next statement either…
They ALL have multiple income streams…
Absolutely, every single one of them has multiple income streams. To put all of your eggs in 1 basket in 2010 with the economy, multiple opportunities, and people needing to make money RIGHT NOW, you will be committing suicide, literally. Now what’s so funny about this, is that from time to time people ask me why do I promote different products. I must admit, that question is truly, truly hilarious. Let’s see… How many people question Mike Dillard when he has multiple products? How many people question Jonathan Budd when he makes millions every year and has numerous product launches? How many people questioned Deagan Smith when he showed he gets over 2k leads in a day somedays and promotes different things to those people? How many people question Ryan Deiss when he promotes something new and innovative 2-3 times per month and makes 8 figures per year doing it?
Do you get emotional about reality or do you accept it?
You see, reality is reality. Reality is, you have a mortgage payment, who’s name is it in? Reality is, you have a car note, who has to pay the bill? Reality is, you have kids, who has to feed them? Reality is, your bank account is dependent upon your actions, now isn’t it? There are going to be people that will talk about you when you promote 1 product and company, and there will be people who will talk about you when you promote multiple. But here’s one thing I can assure you… As people are talking about Ryan, he’s making 8 figures. While people are talking about Jonathan, he’s making 8 figures. While people are talking about Mike Dillard, he’s making 8 figures. While people are talking about Daegan, hell I don’t even need to finish the sentence about Deagan, just look at the picture below!!
Now what does that picture tell you??
Well, where I come from it says loud and clear MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME. Now, Im sure a few people had some things to say about Deagan getting over 50 checks from numerous different places. On the same token, while they are talking, he’s cashing 50 plus checks!! The leaders that I mentioned above understand why they are in this game… It’s called profit!!! They got into internet marketing and network marketing to profit, period, space, space. So do you get mad when people profit?? What for, it’s a waste of time. If you didn’t want to profit you can join a knitting club at meetup.com and learn how to knit. If you wanted a bunch of friends, you can join the YMCA for $30 bucks per month, (cheaper than your autoship) and gain a bunch of friends. But you didn’t do that, you joined this industry so capitalize on it while you can.
Ignore and laugh at the haters… JUST CASH YOUR CHECKS!!!
That’s my motto ladies and gentlemen. Ignore and laugh at the haters, all the while keep cashing checks. Keep your eyes on the end result and success will follow. If you want to make 50k per month, it may take more than 1 source. If you want to make 100k per month, it may take more than 1 source. If you want to make 10k per month, finish the sentence;) Just DON’T forget why you are doing this and ignore the people who just love to drink hatorade. Even with inflation and the price of goods skyrocketing, for some reason hatorade is pretty cheap these days (around .10 per 2 liter.) At that price, quite a few people can get some.
I hope this blog post has helped some people with there thinking, and for the haters…. BOTTOMS UP;)
