More and more I see my feed filling up with programs promising to turn you into a millionaire and fast-track you to some glamorous life. Every entrepreneur wanting you to buy their ‘secret to success’ or ‘millionaire hack’…
A few friends have even signed up and then realised they were being taken for a ride by a scam that was taking money off them and had lured them in with ‘shiny things’.
Most of us have had that experience though. If you think that you are the only person who signed up for something, and then realised you wasted your money on some garbage, let me confidently reassure you that YOU ARE NOT.
So how do you know whether what you are getting yourself into is legit?
Here’s a few points to think about when deciding:
YOU CAN’T GET SOMETHING (GOOD) FOR NOTHING
You will have to invest TIME or MONEY or BOTH in order to get good results. Expect to put some time and energy into your business for the most part, at least at the beginning anyway.
LOOK FOR A GUARANTEE
A company who believes in their own products and services will always offer and trial and/or money back guarantee.
Look at the people involved:
Who are they?
What kind of people are they?
Are they just like you?
Are they the kind of people you can be friends with in the real world?
Are they genuine?
Do you feel aligned with their ideas?
Remember, most people walk away from a job/business because of issues with their coworkers not issues with the money so be aware of the community you are exposing yourself to when starting a new opportunity.
Is there an open discussion around what the opportunity is about?
Now we don’t need a company to reveal all the details of their strategies and give away secrets, but they should at least be forthcoming with where they stand and what they do in the business/online space, Whether that be
Surveys or Education etc…
Before you spend your money, make the effort to at least understand what type of service or product you are investing in.
If you want to know how to do something, find someone who has ALREADY done that thing and ask them to TEACH you or point you in the right direction to LEARN.
Like, if you want to be a better singer, find one of the best singers you know and ask them how they became skilled. (I can help you with this by the way)
And if you want to be a millionaire, go and learn from millionaires. (I can also help you with this one).
NOTHING IS EVER DONE WELL WITHOUT EDUCATION. But you also need to know WHERE to find the RIGHT education. And most of the best education today, takes place OUTSIDE of School and Uni.
People are doing amazing things online and earning some incredible $$$, AND retaining their time freedom whilst doing it.
The difference between THEM and YOU is that they have put in the time to LEARN from the right people and IMPLEMENT at the right time.
Are you ready to educate yourself?
