Ok, I gotta talk about this but should pass on it . . but why not?
Sometimes folks talk about how much hard work something would be and how most folks wouldn’t do that much hard work.
Not only sometimes . . . I get alot of “advice” from people who think I water this business down and call it easy??
I get a lot of advice from folks who tell me this business is hard work and why won’t someone make it easy?
Well there are a bunch of folks online that keep telling people it’s super easy.
People tell me about those guys.
Then I ask my clients who HAVE worked with those guys and say, what do they teach, does it work?
And they say, I signed up with them and did what they say to do . . and lost money.
They told me it’s easy cause I can buy 1000s of solo clicks . . but after $2000 ad spend, I find out the lists are bogus.
Or they have some simple facebook ad strategy . . .but I have to spend $5000 to figure out what the best headline is . . .
And these folks have shiny, pretty pages like folks tell me I should have, that lure people into thinking this is wonderful.
But where are the results???
Yes, I’m ranting.
I may pull this at any time.
I have clients at $100k, $200k, just talked with someone yesterday who is at $15k a month using my techniques and I HAD NO CLUE.
This isn’t monkey business, it’s not quick and easy . . but clients are making good money . . .
But the thing is, the internet – especially if you are trying to do it with free traffic – IS hard work.
The reason is that nothing in life is free – even traffic.
So you have to pay for traffic with money or time – and time is hard work.
And even if you pay for traffic – that part might be easier – but building and optimizing the whole funnel is HARD!!!
And if it’s too hard for most people to pursue – that doesn’t mean it can’t be done or shouldn’t be done.
It means it’s hard work.
Just like if someone wants to be a top judo master . . it’s hard work.
or get straight A’s in school – it’s hard work.
or have a great marriage – it’s hard work.
Sure, maybe most people WON’T do the hard work . . .
but even if that’s the case . . .
then I am teaching to the people who WANT to do hard work . . .
I ask myself, should I water down what I teach so that it works for people who DON’T want to work really really hard and be really focused and dedicated?
What would that look like?
First, I’d be ashamed of myself for not pushing the limits.
Second, if someone wanted to be a top judo master (or swimming, or skiing, whatever) and they DIDN’T want to do the hard work . . they just wouldn’t make it.
But should the coach back and off and say, well I won’t teach the hard work stuff cause most people won’t do it?
I worked hard.
Worked hard this week.
Too little sleep.
Fight with the wife.
Doing something no one has ever done before (you’ll see soon)
Creating literally a new “system” for folks to get to $100k much easier (of course it’s still hard work and still going to require focus, please don’t take that wrong)
Have a deadline for tomorrow.
A client who wants to talk.
Haven’t exercised except for walking in 5 days and hoping I can finish early enough today to get a few runs in on the snow.
Yes, hard work.
And love it.
I’m not griping, I’m not overworked (the precipitator was a 3 day revival type event at my church this week that took 7 hours a day out of my schedule – and I still ridiculously tried to do everything else as normal . . that’s a wisdom issue on my part.
But I say again:
this is hard work.
Writing this is hard work.
Responding to all kinds of desires and wishes and “I wish Sean would do this better, or do this different” is hard work.
Trying to get this Forum going is hard work.
If we don’t want to do hard work . . .
then maybe this industry isn’t for those people.
Ok, I probably shouldn’t have written this.
A voice keeps telling me to stop.
I’m going to publish this.
If you are one of the lucky (or blessed people to read this before I delete it after the first angry response . . .
I hope this was really helpful for you!
