This is not an original thought. In fact, I’m stealing it from marketer extraordinaire Marlon Sanders.
He was one of the speakers at Unseminar9 and the first few words out of his mouth totally captivated me. He started by asking the audience one question.
How many people still have their day job?
Lots of hands went up. Ok, next question.
How many of you want to quit your day job and work from home?
I don’t think any in that first group kept their hands down.
Now, for the punch line. He said it was simple math. He asked how much each person made per hour and if they made $30, did they think they could find a product online for $30 and sell 8 of them a day? That’s it. Simple math and you can quit your job.
Why are we making it so hard?
With a little planning, a quick trip to Clickbank, some determination and eight hours a day to do this in, I think he’s right! Yes, you need a site. Yes, you need a product. Again, go look around Clickbank if you don’t have your own. Yes, you need to get out there and do the marketing, build the list, and actually do some work.
But the big question. Aren’t you already doing some sort of work every day any way? Why not see if you can make this math work!
I know. It sounds simple. And it is. For starters, why not try and make the equivalent to one hour’s pay a day. Then move on to two. Before you know it, you will have a full-fledged business in place.
Crawl before you walk.
Take the baby steps. Find someone to mentor you. Do the homework. Write your goals. Make a plan and work your plan. Record your progress. Before you know it, those numbers will start to add up.
You see, in the end, it’s really is just simple math!
