Because I just got a phone call yesterday from a prospect that wanted to place an order.
I forwarded them to my team to place their order. But they called me! My cell phone number is afterall on my work business card.
But with the call and hopefully sale of another deal, that makes my number of sales for one months work 6. That’s really not that big of a number considering long term business, but it’s something.
And as a schizophrenic, I see it as an accomplishment that I’m having success at my hourly job as an associate and salesperson. I haven’t really ever had it this together and my life is really great.
But I want more and I think most people do, do I’m writing to make more happen in my life and the lives of other people. I think writing is an action we can all take that will improve our lives if we what we seek is to be of value.
So we are really writing to try and improve the world. The world we live in and the worlds of other people. And what I’m talking about is really being GREAT and reaching a massive amount of people.
But as of writing this post, I’m not there yet. Although the amount of traffic I’m getting is going up. From 50 visitors a month to 70. And it’s all because I’ve been writing on a consistent basis. I really think any could do this and START A BUSINESS!
So I work my sales job and my responsibilites as an associate, in the store, with my job, but I also work on myself by reading, keeping a journal, and keeping a blog.
So I figure this COULD really lead somewhere, and that result could mean MORE MONEY! And with this whole money thing being so important to having a family, it would be good if I could increase my income to a higher level.
And I’m sure many people, a massive number of people, want to increase their income. And I think that many of them will be open to the idea of blogging to create your presence and tap into your audience, and really put the value down. Bam bam bam bam.
Because if we want to increase our income, we have to become more valuable. The more valuable you are, the more the marketplace will want you and the more money you make. That’s just what I see happening.
So for me, as I hope it is for you, I seek to become more valuable each day. I think it helps with sales especially! And making more sales at your hourly job can only help you sell things online. And if your like me, you’ll want to learn how to sell things online, so you can create passive income.
And passive income is great because that’s where work you have already done is sold and continues to be sold each day, and you keep getting paid for it. It’s what’s behind monthly memberships to network marketing companies. You pay to play. And if your successful, then you not only will recoup your money spent to play, you’ll profit!
But before I go any further I want to explain my personal paradox. I don’t believe in get rich quick schemes, I think it takes long hard work to be successful. But I don’t think get rich quick schemes are without their value either. If you have your stuff together, you COULD make a lot of money in a short amount of time.
But I say writing is like investing in the stock market. It’s a long term game. And you play it because you WANT to. Maybe you might even be obsessed.
At least you make it a habit, and do it everyday. Even if it’s only for an hour. Do an hour each day and you will really have some work to show for it!
Imagine doing 90 consecutive days of blogging. A post per day. An hour per day. It really wouldn’t be that much time and I believe you would really be doing yourself a favor. I propose you would grow and become a more valuable person.
And if I’m right, which sometimes I am not, really often I’m wrong, but if I’m right, you can make money off your writing. Build an audience, get their email addresses, provide that list with valuable stuff they can only get by being on that list, and then IF they want to buy something from me, they can!
And if your being of value, I propose you will have no trouble selling what you think is right. How big can you get? You certainly can become a millionaire by writing. Just search the internet for proof.
Sure there are some articles I’ve read that says the average e book only makes a few hundred dollars in it’s lifetime, but I choose to focus on those stories where people do make a million dollars selling e books. There IS proof it can be done ALREADY OUT THERE. You’re not even reinventing the wheel.
I would go further to say that it should be easy to duplicate the success of countless others and make money blogging, but I know it is NOT easy. It takes hard work and failure to amount to success. At least that’s the way it seems. It did take Thomas Edison many failures to invent the lightbulb. I’m sure he was working hard on it. He just never quit. And he found a way. That’s what I propose we do.
And it’s going to take that hard work, and it’s going to take you not being noticed for a while. But if you learn from your failures, and keep trying, I propose that you are destined for SUCCESS.
I propose you be one of the stories people look to when they look for successful people who are making it on their blogs. People who have escaped their jobs for a better life with more money and time in it. Although I must say, now that I’ve had to relearn how to work an hourly job I’ve got to say that that process has been good for me. I love writing about my success there, especially coming from a great deal of failure.
Because really it hasn’t been very successful for me up to this point. I’m doing better now than ever, and each day is better than the last, but it wasn’t long ago I was basically income-less and putting too much energy into visualizing I’d won the lottery. I was really a mess. And I hated working.
That has changed with the gift of my current job. My bosses have taken good care of me and I take good care of them. It’s a win win. I don’t mind taking orders, and I don’t complain about the job, and I’m always looking to improve. And there’s room to grow there. Especially with me taking on a sales job for the three different stores.
I told my boss that I wanted to work for Tony Robbins as a salesperson and they gave me a promotion so that I would have the chance to succeed and then my resume would be in better shape to work for Tony Robbins. And I’m really off to a great start with my new position. I don’t know that I wouldn’t want to just make it writing and not work a job and be my own Tony Robbins, where I have my own salespeople working for me, I think that might be a better deal.
But if I had to work, I think working for Tony Robbins would be a good gig. I also think my current gig is great too. Even though I don’t make much money, it’s still good work and it supports me.
But still I seek to improve, so I want this writing thing to work out. For writing to be an income producing activity for me. And I want it to be the same for you. For writing to be an income producing activity.
I don’t think everyone who reads this will make money writing, but I think there will be some success, maybe even A LOT of success with people who have read this and then taken action to be of value and write.
And I propose those people who ARE of value, and really create something of great value, THEY WILL make money. Earn money. And YOU could be one of those people.
That’s what I say, I’m very optimistic about the future. And “The future depends on what you do today” -Ghandi. So if your like me you’ll want to get busy on your writing, because that’s what’s going to build your business.
“Content is king” -Bill Gates.
So I would go further and say that valuable content, valuable writing, valuable videos, are king. And the more valuable they are, the better the king.
That’s just what I say. That’s just what comes to me on my journey. And I have the obsession of sharing it with you in the hopes your life will transform and become better. That’s a lofty goal, but I propose I will become better at doing it with each day. And really I would like to master the art of being the catalyst for other people to create positive change in their lives. Because you have to ask yourself the question of why your writing… and the better quality of question the better answer your going to get.
So I figure that’s why I’m writing. To get people to improve their lives. By writing things of value and creating a business online. Because I think you can live a better life that way than just working the normal job. That’s just what I say.
Although working a job has it’s benefits. Work is good for the soul. It supports your life and depending on how much you give it supports the lives of others as well. And I propose that writing can support life as well. And that you could be paid for it!
