You’ve been told a lie your whole life!
It’s all about hard work my ass. I can tell you for an absolute fact if you work hard enough, you can get a business to the land of the living dead. Where business owners work 20 hour days, 7 days a week and survive on just enough money to make payroll and bills. When I started my business my goal was to be part of the rich and shameless but I settled for becoming a slave to my own dreams. I strive to be part of the living. The land where people live, work, vacation and drive what they want when they want.
But I was raised to believe that the only way to the land of the living was by way of college. The only way to college was to get a loan. This meant you do four years in college and spend the next eight year paying back the loan. By the time you get the college debt paid for it’s time to get married and start a family. So…you’re always working long hours and dealing with tight schedules and all your money is going to someone else. Don’t look now but the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train, where about the time you are unable to work anymore you can retire and take home your winnings, for a life well lived, for someone else, not you. About the only thing left for you is to sit in front of the dumb man’s tube and try not to think about all the mistakes you made and where you could have been.
Regardless, any opportunity for that life has passed you by so you will have to look for an alternative life. Since you are at a crossroad and need to make a decision fast why no go with “get rich quick” and be able to live how you want, where you want, and drive what you want. Yes, I know what you are thinking but think about this, would you be willing to give up the next five years of your life to be able to live the remaining years any you wanted?
Let me put it to you this way, if I said I believe there is a formula for building a successful online business, but it would require you to work your ass off for the next 5 years starting now, would you be willing to do that?
Five years in exchange for an awesome automated business that is able to buy you a house anywhere you want to live, allow you to own any car you want to own, and travel anywhere you want to travel. A life style that few can live and most people can only dream about, one that brings respect and honor.

There is no Easy way that I know of to make money online! However, I do believe there is a formula and if there is a formula then there is a time and if you are willing to use your time wisely I believe the amount of time it takes to create a money making website can be decreased.
The Online World Doesn’t Care About;
- Your family
- How hard you work
- Your education
- Your business plan
- Your capital
- Your sex, color, or age
The Online World doesn’t care about any of that stuff.
The online world is a dark, deserted, unpaved road with back allies and potholes that will force you to change direction.
Putting a website online requires taking risk and making sacrifices. You build a business that can pivot and change directions. When you hit the first pothole (and it will happen) just keep in mind that you are creating a business. By pivoting and changing directions with the same business, we are able to put all our time and efforts into that business and make it eventually work.
But you have to be willing to sacrifice to live like few can.
- Making your website work is a formula, not an ingredient.
- Building an online business is a process. Process cannot be outsourced, because process dawns wisdom, personal growth, strength, and events.
People who make money with their websites don’t do so by stumbling around online. Both making money and losing money are a direct effect of the roadmap you follow.
The idea is to take a website and build it to be all it can be!
Start by building a nice looking website that you think will turn visitors into customers. Then duplicate that website and start running test where you show one group of visitor’s one website and another group of visitors another website. Make small changes like titles, content, background colors, images, call to actions as well as offers, products, services and prices. Then use Google Analytics to see how much traffic you are getting and what that traffic is doing while they are on the site. That information allows you to make small changes and run them side-by-side to see which one performs better.
This tweaking and fine tuning the services, offers, business and website never stops.
But before it can start we need traffic!
