I received this question from an entrepeneur the other day.
I thought you might like my response.
Question: Dear Marc, I'm frustrated as you can probably tell. But
I've spent a small fortune on every conceivable home business
opportunity and online money making deal. 90% of them are a joke! Most
Internet marketers and business opportunity salesmen are nothing more
than shills and hucksters. But I value your opinion and insight...and
every time you've recommended something its been valuable. Is anything
Answer Marc Charles:
Wow.....I enjoyed your email! If you apply this attitude to business you'll make a fortune!
But first I need to defend my fellow hucksters and business opportunity salesmen.
are cons, shills, crooks and everything in between in the world today. I
could devote a dozen books to all of the crooks I've met in my life and
Ironically, it was one such con artist
where I had the most fun in business. I was young entrepreneur but I
couldn't believe how resourceful this guy was. In one business venture
this guy started offering handguns as premiums! And it worked! The
stupid phone rang off the hook for two weeks straight.
Anyway, the problem is not finding legitmate business opportunities or money making ventures.
could STOP ordering books, courses, tapes, DVDs, special reports,
newsletters, conferences, eBooks, webinars and everything in between
today, and you would have all of the information you need to run a
profitable business and make money.
I'm not kidding.
You need to stop looking for "the secret" formula. The "secret" formula does not exist. There is NOTHING new under the sun.
What you need to acquire is wisdom and understanding.
95% of what you buy from someone else will not impart wisdom and understanding. This is a BIG lesson to learn.
I encourage people to look for the "essence" of a business opportunity or money making venture.
The "essence" is what you really need to make a business go.
And ironically...."essence" is the one thing which is not available when you buy or start a business.
Now...this doesn't mean people can't or won't help you.
blog is a good example. I'm not charging a nickel for this wisdom. I'm
also willing to help almost anyone who has PROVEN they have a passion to
But when you order information products, books, courses and the rest......look for the "essence".
you understand the "essense" of a business or money making formula, and
YOU APPLY this understanding...you will gain wisdom.
It's a big deal.....and this is 100% true and accurate.
I hope that helps!!
I look forward to hearing from you.
