When you hear the word free, you might be thinking,.. yeah okay, what’s the catch? (I know I would). But before I explain how,.. relax and allow me to tell you a short story.
About two years ago, (well 19 months to be exact), I ventured into the online world of business.
Not unlike most people attempting something completely new. I carried with me quite a few doubts and wondered if it was the thing for me.
Having a full time “Job” which brought in a comfortable income, I wasn’t that motivated to take the ball and run with it. But I decided, the hell with it, let’s give it a shot part-time, (two hours five days a week), and see where it takes me.
BTW, for the first eight months, I just relaxed and learnt the basics without taking any action. (that’s quite an everyday activity), NOT taking ACTION.
Tip: absorb the info’ on this site, and you’ll become an action taking hero/heroin
So this site you’ve landed on has taken me 11 months (part-time), and it hasn’t cost me a bean!
If I were to pay a writer to fill the site to where it is now (10/11/2019), it would cost me approx’ $2000 just for the content. And I’m paying about $1000 per year for hosting, education and various resources that help me organise my progress… (But you said it hasn’t cost you a bean! : ). I’m getting to that, but first, let me show and explain where it all started.
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
There’s an old saying: ” Don’t try and reinvent the wheel”. Well, that might not be exactly how it’s expressed, but you get the gist. (What it means is, if you’ve got something that works, “don’t try and fix it”).
Caution: This isn’t the same as “re-positioning”, but we’ll get into that on another article.
When I was searching for a platform to discover “HOW” to build a business online, I didn’t need to be “sold” the idea. It was something I’d planned to do before I started looking.
But I had to find a reputable source. Someone I could trust. Especially online, with all the snake oil salesmen trading their wares, and fooling so many with their BSB’s (Bright Shiny Bull).
Caution: When you listen, watch or read someone surrounded by fast cars, mansions, and Sh$£ing mountains of Cash. You’ll know what I mean.
Lucky for me, I didn’t have to search very far. I just plugged in “the best online business builder”, looked at the results and found my mentor.
Have a go. Punch that keyphrase into Google and unveil your results. The key phrase is: “the best online business builder“. You may not find the same mentor I use. But it doesn’t matter. What’s important is “YOU’VE” got to match YOUR fit. (Its’ a vital part of working with a mentor)
Once you’ve completed that little task, (which is called the “Discovery Phase”), you’ll want to do some research.
The only drawback in researching your chosen mentor is that most of the reviews are biased. Reason being, the reviewers, are mostly affiliated with the product or service. (That’s how affiliate marketing works).
Tip: Look around streamofmoney.com if you’re unsure of any terms or ideas expressed so far. There’s plenty of knowledge here waiting for you to bathe in.
Here’s the part you’ve been waiting for. How do you create all this for no money down? Well, it’s easy once you have the know-how. And I’m here to explain all the nuts and bolts, without charging you a dime.
There is a massive tsunami heading this way, of online businesses wanting people like you to write content for them, (including, yours truly). If I’d have paid someone back at the start to write for me, as I’ve stated earlier, it would have cost me $2000 (and that’s being conservative).
You can charge anything from $40-$220 per article (depending on how much research is involved). And when I say research, I mean for you to take the time to “thoroughly” search for the best nuggets of info’ that are available. (I’m going to do a post on research methods soon, so be ready).
So, at the very least you could write one to three articles per week in your spare time. Doing the maths, we come up with $7800 per year @ three articles per week and $2600 @ 1 article per week. Not too shabby for a bit of part-time work in your spare time, (Better than binge-watching NETFLIX).
And of course, you can then plough some of the proceeds into your online venture. Making it, well, not FREE (your time is money/wealth). But adding more streams of money and rearranges your finances, allowing for new wealth-building projects for your future. For a bit of fun, have a search on Google at the “magic of compounding.”
The Fallacy of FREE
We live in a global system of cycles, and every part therein has a purpose to fulfil.
When it’s time has come, it transforms into another part to perpetuate the continuum.
EG: A seed is planted, which grows into a tree. The tree bears fruit that feeds other life forms, so they can ingest the seed, and plant it again (after excreting it) — creating a cycle of endless energy.
No part of this “energy” is FREE. Whenever one piece has been expended, another portion is given life.
So when you look at the “idea” of FREE, remember it’s only a persuasive tactic to entice the energy-saving brain to take “Action”. If we could lie on a beach all week soaking up the sun. Or be at work being stressed all day. Which choice would you make?
Yep, the more comfortable option is almost always triggered first, (it’s how our super-efficient brain operates).
