Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours

If I Had To Do It All Over Again
By: Dave Cole
I've been marketing for almost 4 years now. I've spent a lot of money, wasted a lot of money; spent a lot of time, wasted a lot of time; listened to a lot of advice, followed a lot of bad advice.
I've gotten ripped off and taken to the cleaners. I've made money and I've lost money.
If I had to do it all over again here's what I'd do:
1. Take some serious time to study and learn about
2. Find a program that I knew I could get passionate
about and have fun doing.
3. Get myself under a person who was making money and knew what they were doing...then follow what they said.
If I wanted to market exclusively online, I'd get myself
under a guy like Frank Garon who knows what he's doing and talking about.
Then I'd go to him and say, "Frank, I'm your student.
You're smarter than me.....instruct me and I'll follow
exactly what you tell me."
"I'll do it your way cause you know what you're talking about."
I'd read all I could get my hands on by guys like
Robert Blackman, David Ledoux, Terry Dean, Marlon Sanders, Robert Kiyosaki, Dale Calvert and Jack Zuefelt.
I wasted a lot of time cause I wanted to play Frank Sinatra and "Do it my way."
I wasted a lot of money cause I didn't listen to the experts and do what they said.
I wasted a lot of time cause I got involved with too many programs simply cause I thought they would make me money and not because they were something I could get passionate about and fully embrace.
If I had to do it all over again I'd get smart first.
A year ago I got smart.
I looked at a network marketing company and spent 3 months evaulating it, thinking about it, taking my time looking over it and knowing I could get passionate about it.
I got myself directly under a man who had made $30,000 a month in network marketing. I listened to what he said.
I did what he said to do.
In a former offline business venture this man had also
built a company from scratch to become the number
one company in the world in it's field.
He knew what he was talking about.
Within one short year of being under this mentor, I am
now within the top 1% of reps with my company.
Because I did it his way, the right way...instead of
my way...the wrong way. My old way wasn't making me the kind of money I really wanted. My old way was
the dumb way. I had to admit to myself I was wrong
before I could listen to what he was telling me.
We are in one of the worst economic times we've seen
for many years. September and October have been almost horrible for many offline and online businesses.
October has been a record month for me, one of the best I've ever had. I'm going to surpass two major goals this month in sales and in climbing up the comp plan ladder.
After this month there will only be 6 people higher up
in the comp plan than me with my company.
But you see....I'm a dummy.
I didn't do well in school. I flunked out of college
after only two semesters to become a common ordinary
laborer with a utility company.
I've spent the last 30 years on the seat of a John Deere
tractor farming. I've got no special pre-qualifying skills
to make me some super marketer, no above average
intelligence. I know about tractors and cows and
There are hundreds of you out there smarter than me,
I promise you that.
But I made 3 good decisions:
1. I chose a company that I could get passionate about
2. I got under a mentor who knew what he was talking about
3. I admitted my way wasn't working and then did what he told me and not necessarily what I wanted to do.
Now just how damn hard is that?
You can do that too.
If a big dummy like me can be successful marketing on
the Internet, anyone can.
My question to you is: "If you're not making the kind of
money you really want and if you're not passionate about what you're doing.....are you willing to start over and do things the right way?"
"A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a
plan and a deadline."
