In early 2018, I made one of the most powerful decisions of my entire business life. I decided to invest a few thousand dollars in an online business program. This was after being pitched for over an hour on a live webinar, and then they call, me on the cell phone, the call was from the person who generated me as their lead. I had so many negative doubts, I remember having a lot of questions about the program. It sounded like something I could do, it sounded easy.
However, there was that little voice in the back of my head that had been put there by a lot of years of conditioning from my blue-collar parents, the media, and society in general. I am sure you know the one: What if this doesn’t work? What if you invest the money, then find out it is harder than you thought? What makes you think you will be successful? Most businesses fail, and I’m sure the people that are getting results have a lot more money than you, more experience, and talent, you probably won’t be able to do this.
But then I thought about it a different way, I asked myself, at the end of my life, will I look back on this big decision to try to build a business online, and live an extraordinary life as a result of that business, with no regrets even if I do fail? or will I at least be glad that I tried, so that I don’t have to live with that what if, in my head? The answer was obvious, so I made that decision to buy right there at that very moment. With some enormous fear and excitement, I pulled out my credit card and purchased it.
I started promoting peoples products, doing affiliate marketing, making a little money here and there, however, I wasn’t making the money that I was promised I would make. When I try to get a hold of the program coach he became a ghost, there was no help to be found. I remember sitting at my dining room table with my head in my lap, with tears running down my cheeks, telling myself it was all lies, they ripped me off. I had question marks forever in my head, I hadn’t even made the money back that I invested. Then, of course, the little voice came in my head, you are so stupid, you were born in a blue-collar family, you are never going to be successful.
I did not even dare to tell, any of my friends and family what I was doing, and what was happening, sadly a lot of my friends and family did not believe in me because the ‘A’s and ‘B’s were typically employed by the ‘C’s and ‘D’s..the academics will not make it when it comes to running their own business successfully. I stood up from my dining room table, dry those tears off my face, in a very loud voice I said I will not quit, I will not give up, I will succeed no matter what, I CAN DO THIS.
Got on Facebook, begin talking to friends that were involved with affiliate marketing. All of them told me the same thing I needed to be educated in affiliate marketing, in order to succeed. I told my friend, I don’t have that kind of money to take a risk on some online affiliate marketing course. Then he said, I am your friend I want you to succeed, trust me on this. He then texts me and said, it will not cost you any money to join, the first month is free, the second month will cost you $19, the third month will cost you $49, with no increase after that. In that first month, you will be able to decide if you want to stay or not, and it’s not costing you anything, it is a win-win for you.
