How to share your passions with the world…
Lots of people think that the IM Success Map system is about making money online – and to some degree it is. But more importantly, it’s about providing a system for teaching people with hobbies and passions how to share their knowledge and love of a topic with the world. Profits are merely a by-product of this process.
It’s no easy task creating an online business, and let’s get this right out in the open:
People that come online to make money without providing real value to the world, almost always fail – plain and simple. Sure there are lot’s of stories of those guys and girls behind the curtains that use these ‘push button’ systems to generate tons of money with no work or effort – and they’re always willing to share their secrets with you in exchange for a bit of your hard earned cash, but I assure you…
it’s all smoke and mirrors.
I’ve been online full time now for more than 15 years – and I spent a few years before that holding down my day job while working late nights learning the ropes online (and falling for a bunch of those money traps) – and from all that I’ve seen and learned I can promise you this:
Doing business online is no different than starting and running an offline business with the exception of a few things:
1. You can usually reach a much larger audience online. The beauty of the internet is that it allows you to reach a global audience – and that’s incredibly powerful.
2. There is much less risk involved in getting started with an online business. I’ve looked into (and initiated), a few offline business start-ups and I can tell you, it’s real easy to be looking at a 6 figure budget to get rolling – and then there’s the thousands (or tens of thousands), of recurring monthly expenses… kinda’ scary right? Compare that against the $50 to $100 it takes to start an online business and it’s kind of a no-brainer for me 🙂
and 3rd – You can start an online business in your spare time – you can enjoy it and not be stressed out all the time about covering your startup costs and all that. Doing business online can put the fun back in starting your own thing – and that’s what brought me online. It was fun, and the potential for earning and freedom is completely limitless.
But it does require some effort and work (sorry to be the bearer of that news if you’ve been tricked to think otherwise). And as I mentioned… you have to provide value to the world to see real success.
That’s what the IM Success Map system teaches our students – how to take your knowledge and passion and share it with other people that have similar interests. And then how to turn that into a business and drive profit from your hard work (although it won’t feel like hard work if you’re doing what you truly enjoy).
I can tell you this… If you’re coming online just to make money – no matter what you wind up doing, it’s just going to be another job – and for most of our students, that’s exactly what they’re trying to escape. Don’t fall into this trap. Don’t believe all the false promises online about instant internet riches and all that hogwash.
You’ll be able to make ‘easy money’ after you’ve done the work of establishing yourself, setting up a solid platform and have a passionate following – at that point, it does get to feel kind of like ‘easy money’.
Do you think Amazon has a hard time selling a bunch of their latest product?
Would they have had a hard time generating thousands of sales on day one when they were just getting started?
Yeah, of course…
But now that they’re established they can drive books to be top sellers, turn otherwise ‘would never be known’ authors into best sellers and bring a lot more value to the world – because they worked to get there (and I love ’em for it!)
If you’re serious about making money online, and you’re not looking for ‘push button riches’ then the IM Success Map can help get you crankin’ and I’m excied to start working with you during the process.
Everyone is passionate about something – dig deep and think about it. What could you bring of value to the world. What hobbies do you have that you would love to be able to focus on. What would you love to be working on, talking with other interested people about and profiting from your efforts on every day? For most of us, the list is long – but then again, lots of people get completely stuck on this.
I hope you found this helpful, and I encourage you to take a deeper look at the IM Success Map program when you’re ready to get serious about starting your online business.
Enjoy each day!
