“Are Your Dreams Worth Fighting For?”

 

“If you don’t have dreams you’ll end working for people who do”

~Jeffrey Combs

We all have dreams of becoming someone successful in life. We want to be a person of influence that contributes to the lives of others in some major way. Perhaps you want to be a good politician that serves the people, not special interest groups. Maybe you want to be an entrepreneur that creates products or services that will positively serve  the global community. Whatever you desire to do, starts with a dream. Dreams and vision is what inspire common men to accomplish uncommon things.

A dream is nothing more than an idea that has not yet come to fruition. The more attention and focus you give to it, the more it expands in your mind to become a reality. The ability to imagine and create is one of the things that separates human beings from animals. It’s one of the reasons we are the crown of God’s creation.

Unfortunately, many people today, have given up on their dreams. They gave up the great to settle for the ok. The quote says, “if you don’t have dreams, you’ll end up working for those who do”. There is nothing wrong with working for others, but there is something wrong with coming to the end of life with regrets. I truly believe that no man wants to reach the end of his life, never giving himself a chance. Sadly, this the case for many individuals. They never give themselves a chance and they allow their excuses to be bigger than their why.

Any dream worth having, is a dream worth fighting for. It’s easy to say that doesn’t work, it’s easy to say i’m not cut out for this. It’s easy to say I come from the wrong environment so I won’t succeed. Napoleon Hill, the author of “think and grow rich” says “what the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve”. It has nothing to do with your background or anything else external.

In conclusion, birds of a feather, flock together. Never let anything or anyone affect your dreams. The minute you do, you have given up on your hopes, aspirations and desires to be successful. Surround yourself with people who get it. These are people who think uncommonly as yourself. Allow your dreams to take you to the top because the bottom is always crowded.

The Truth About Solo Ads

image

Okay for this article I’m going to be completely honest and tell you the truth about solo ads. This post is not going to be long at all. I’m going to say what I want to say and leave it at that. This article is based upon my personal experience and may be much different from yours and that’s okay. It may seem like i’m ranting a little but I want to be honest and hopefully save you some time and money.

What are solo ads?

Solo ads, in a nutshell, are basically Money making or internet marketing opportunity ads that a seller posts online. The visitor sees the ad, has an interest, and fills out a form wanting to know how to make money online. The seller collects their email and name and sells it to the purchaser (you and me)for as low as 5o cents to as much as 1.50 per click.The seller has lots of names and email addresses of people who want info on a money making opportunity. As soon as you make your purchase of clicks that you want, your opportunity will be shown to the people who requested more information based on the amount of clicks you bought. Your program will be shown via email. If the visitor, otherwise known as the prospect, likes your opportunity, they will invest in the business and you will have a sale.

Pros and Cons

Obviously there are pros and cons with solo ads just like anything else right? First I’ll start with the pros. Solo ads are probably the fastest way to build your list. The bigger your list, the greater the chance you stand to make a lot of money. Some people say the money is in the list. I think the money is in the value that you offer to your list. With a single purchase, you can have hundreds of leads going through your funnel. The key word here is leverage. If you don’t have much money to invest, you can buy a solo ad for as low as 4o, 50 bucks.

The Cons of solo ads are you can lose a lot of money by buying solos that are crap. Some solo ad sellers are scamming purchasers out of their money by selling old leads or clicks. Sometimes these clicks are bots. The thing that I don’t like is if you get clicks that do not convert to sales, there is really no remedy. You have to take a loss. The thing with solo ads is that you never know what kind of traffic your getting or if they are really targeted as the sellers claim they are. You may get one sale out of one hundred clicks but it is what it is. It’s the risk you take.

In conclusion, This is the truth about solo ads in my opinion. Again, your experience may be different. I want to share a story with you in regards to solo ads. I’ve purchased quite a few solo ads from different vendors. I want to share the one big loss that really opened my eyes and revealed to me the truth about solo ads. I recently purchased 500 clicks from a guy that calls himself the king of solo ads. He’s known as the go to guy for solo ads.

Anyway, it was my first run with him so I decided to take the leap of faith and put up 700 bucks for 500 clicks. While I did get about a 4o-50% opt in, I only got one upfront sale! Now “what a minute” I thought to myself. This guy who is supposed to be the solo ad guru produced average results for me. I was expecting at least 4-5 upfront sales but it didn’t happen that way. I

t was shocking because he’s considered “the guy”. Boy did I learn my lesson. I’ve purchased lower amount of clicks and got better results than this guy’s deal. In my humble opinion, you can get sales from solo ads, however, they are low performing and not the best source of quality traffic.

Fortunately for me I’ve discovered a trusted traffic source that I will use from now on. Not only did I get great results, I got outstanding customer service! Their traffic isn’t solo ads, google ads or Facebook ads. Check it out here.

It works better than those sources. Oh by the way, FB is not a fan of money making opportunities and will implement changes next year that will definitely affect internet marketers unless they are savvy and crafty enough to market their offers.

Currently, their offering a black Friday special until Monday night where you can take advantage of their quality traffic packages at discounted rates. Click here to check it out.

Do you need a marketing budget to succeed in your online business?

image

A question people have, is do you need a marketing budget to succeed in an online business. Well, the answer to that question is no. I’ll explain why. The reason why you do not need a marketing budget is because of social media. All over the Internet, people are making hundreds of thousands of dollars using free strategies on the Internet. All you need to do is pick a platform that you want to build on and master it. The key is to consistently provide value to your target market.

Video

Video is hot right now and more and more people are realizing the power of making videos. Making videos will help you to grow as an entrepreneur as you provide valuable content to your viewers. Best of all, you can record and share your videos for free. No budget required.

Blogging

Even though everyone and their mom has a blog, blogging is still a good choice. Blogging just like video, can be done without any marketing budget. You can provide ideas and solutions that helps your reader. Blogging is a great way to draw people to you so they can learn more of what you do. Your blog should be packed with content. You can collect leads and recruit people off of your blog!

Relationships

The best of them all, is relationships. The reason I say the best is because connecting with people is what counts. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is how many people did you connect with. Building relations cost you nothing especially on Facebook. Whether your business is online or not, you are in the people business. Relationships count.

Why you should have a blog and what it can do for your business

image

Many people are undecided about whether to blog or not to blog. First of all, a blog is a body of work that is written to expression one’s opinion regarding a particular subject or matter. It is regularly updated with content that is designed to educate, entertain or inform. Over the last 10 to 15 years, blogging has increased in popularity. Now, many businesses and individuals see the benefit in having a blog.

Why Blog?

Obviously, some people don’t want to blog. They just want to make sales. However, there are several reasons why you should blog and in doing so, can contribute to greater sales. As a home business owner, you should be building relationships. A blog makes it easier to do just that. A blog allows readers to learn about you. We’ve learned that people do business with people who they know like and trust. A blog makes that possible.

Another reason why you should blog is because you can market your content to prospects who are looking to join a business. Entrepreneurs who are already in business will benefit from the products you have to share. As a marketer, you should lead with value and kill with content. All over the internet, people are looking for information that will help them generate leads that may turn into sales. Your content may not necessarily be brand new but it should be uniquely presented.

image

Yet, a third reason why you should blog is because blogging brands you as a leader. If you want to establish yourself and business as a source of ¬†credibility, it is important to have a blog. Most people who are movers and shakers in network marketing have at least one blog. You don’t need a blog to become successful. Blogging can take your business to another level because people will see that you are serious about your craft. You’ll attract more people to you in the process.

In conclusion, these are some of the reasons why you should have a blog. You don’t need a blog to become successful however, having one makes becoming successful easier especially online. A blog lets you leverage the internet where there are billions of people doing business. Your blog is working for you 24-7. You don’t need to be an expert to be a great blogger. You just need to get started.

A Dream That Can’t Be Shattered

image.jpeg

Dreams are imaginations that you project in your mind. They are desires or fantasies that we usually wish to become a reality. We all have dreams. We have them for ourselves and we have them for our family. Dreams are a part of what makes people get out of bed in the morning. No one can fulfill our dreams for us. It is our duty and responsibility. Sometimes, people say discouraging things to shatter your dreams. Often times, it’s because they have don’t have any themselves. Ambitious people have dreams that can’t be shattered.

image

Its hard to beat a man who doesn’t give up. His dreams are too important to settle for mediocrity. Focus on where you want to go, then plan accordingly. You have a dream that can’t be shattered. A dream that’s worth the grind. You’ll realize that your dream is not just about you. It’s about the millions of lives that will be changed.

image

Many people have allowed their dreams to become nightmares. This is due to a lack of action, wrong network and negative mindset. It is also important to understand that a dream without a plan is just a wish. Many people have been wishing¬†for too long. Wishing this would work, wishing things would get better. A dream that can’t be shattered makes things work, makes things better. Many communities are stricken with lack not only because of less resources. They are so due to a lack of dreaming and planning. You have a dream that can’t be shattered.

What Stop Most People From Taking Action?

image

What stops most people from taking action? There are many reasons why most people don’t take action. I will go over some common reasons, or excuses. A reason why people do not take action is because of fear. Fear is the thief of your dreams. Many people fear what may not even happen. In some cases, fear is condition that results from a lack of confidence or self esteem. It’s a paralyzer. Fear stops people from succeeding and reaching their highest potential. We have fear but we can’t let it stop us.

Another reason that stops people from taking action is their own self limiting beliefs. You have to believe that you can accomplish any goal. Your actions dictate what you believe consciously or subconsciously. No matter what excuses we give, the only ones we are fooling is ourselves. Believe you can make a difference and take action.

image

A third reason why most people don’t take action is because of the hard work that’s required. After working forty to sixty hours a week, who wants to work hard building a business? People are conditioned to work at a job, not hard for themselves. Working hard for yourself is challenging because it requires mental energy to remain persistent and consistent. When you lack mental energy, it’s difficult to work hard. Nevertheless, people make excuses to avoid working hard.

image

In conclusion, these are some reasons why most people do not take action. If anything good is worth having, it’s worth working for. Some folks are too concerned of what friends and family will think of them. Because of this, they do not take action. The difference between your dream and reality is your action.

When Your Passion Consumes You

image

We all have a passion for something. It could be speaking, writing or building. The definition of passion is a strong or uncontrollable emotion. There is probably something exciting in your life that you enjoy, which makes you feel this way. You think about it day and night. You dream about bringing that thing to fruition. When you have conversations with people, you can’t help but to bring it up. This is what happens when you have a passion that consumes you.

In St.John 2:17, the bible reads, and his disciples remembered that it is written the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. What is the zeal that is eating you up? What is that zeal that makes people think you’re crazy. Furthermore, what is the zeal that makes you think you’re crazy? This is what happens when your passion consumes you.

image

I don’t want to be a passionless individual. For me, there has got to be something that gets me out of bed in the morning. There has got to be something that makes me say yes, I’m alive!! I’m afraid that many people have no zeal. They have no passion, they have no fire. These folks drift aimlessly through life. Some of them are mad at the world because they didn’t make anything out of themselves.

When you have a passion that consumes you, you’ll walk with a new walk. You’ll talk a new talk and you’ll have a new found perspective on life. Welcome to the new you. When people have a passion so intense, they don’t worry what others are doing. They are focused on their goals and the task at hand. They have no time to play games, there is much work to do.

image

In conclusion, when your passion consumes you, your whole demeanor will change. What you took for granted, You now acknowledge as a gift. Let your passion consume you.
