For those of you that have been following my blogs over the years, you know that I have many expressions. For instance, "opportunity is a constant". That means there are always ways to make substantial amounts of money under any economy or under any economic conditions. For example, if you communicate with others by phone, in person or via some form of electronic communication and ask "do you want to buy a duck?", you will find someone that wants to buy a duck! I realize that most people aren't trying to sell a duck. It's just an example of opportunity being a "constant". Once you realize that there is no limit to your ability to market something and earn unlimited amounts of money, the rest of the process gets easier. Making yourself believe that you can and will succeed is the major hurdle. It's more common than not that people tell themselves that it can't be done or I'm not smart enough or I'm not experienced enough and on and on and on....Get over it! Stop selling yourself short! Believe in yourself and you can make it happen. IT is anything you want to do or sell. If you're buying what I'm telling you about your ability to succeed under any circumstance, then we can now move on to the process.
i took Army ROTC in college. I was required to serve 2 years as an officer on active duty after graduating from college. Soon after being discharged from the Army in 1968, I entered the investments industry. Now, 47 years later, I'm still in the investments industry. I only mention this because I entered an industry that I knew nothing about, I had no money and didn't know anyone with money. On top of that, I had a terrible fear of talking to people that I did not know. I was even uncomfortable at parties or being around groups of people.
Why do I mention that now in a blog about how to get rich online? I mention that because I had to first get myself to believe that "opportunity was a constant" before I could become successful myself. I overcame my fear of talking to people by standing in front of a mirror and talking with imaginary clients for hours at a time. The more I practiced, the more confidence I gained in myself. I began to realize that I knew more about what I was talking about than those I was talking to. Knowledge was power, and I had knowledge. I started appearing on radio and television programs before hosting my own television program in the 70s and 80s. I became well known and was recognized as being "one of South Florida's most respected brokers" by the Sun-Sentinel newspaper, the largest newspaper in circulation in Florida at the time. What does this have to do with getting rich online? You must be knowledgeable about what you represent or what you are selling. You must also have confidence in yourself with no upside limits.
What do you want to sell or offer online to get rich? The answer for most people is, "I don't have a clue". My response to that answer is "use your brain" or just "think". What should you "think" about? What are people doing today that will create an opportunity in the future? A perfect example is marijuana being legalized in Colorado. Look at the online businesses that have boomed by people who were "thinking" of opportunities related to that legalization. What are young people doing to their bodies today that never happened in my generation? Tattoos are everywhere. In case you don't know it, skin doesn't age well. My guess is tattoo removal will be a huge industry in the future.
Think about how you can participate and get rich when this happens. There's a worldwide push for a safer and cleaner environment. Think about what you can offer online that will be accepted as improving the environment and set up a website and market it. Less and less people are attending church than anytime in my lifetime. Yet Pope Francis is probably the most adored Pope in centuries. Think about how you can participate in young people returning to churches again. Bibles, rosaries, crosses and other religious items may be in demand in the future. Think about what you can do to take advantage of this happening.
Watch what people are doing. Listen to what people are saying. Use your brain to think about solutions to what is happening. Once you know what you are talking about, go online and market your ideas. You will know more than the people you are marketing to. They will seek you out just as people have sought me out to speak at their business conferences. Once you are recognized as an expert with a viable idea or product, you may soon discover how to get rich online.
