Advice I Gave My Brother On Making Money In this Economy

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I got a call from my brother. (We’re 6 years apart. I’m older but he’s always been the “successful” one while I  struggled for years  in the music business.) He told me he’s really depressed because for the first time he needs money; his job isn’t cutting it.

I knew this day would come because even though he’s made a 6-figure income for years, he was dependent on other people to hire him. And it’s a very high-risk industry with no benefits  where you can lose employment at any time through no fault of your own.

I’ve been online for 5 years now and been The eBook Coach for 4 of them. And I’ve been trying to get him on line the last 4 years, but he kept putting me off.

Now, in this economy I’m doing just fine and he’s not. (I don’t say this to gloat.  I want the best for him, but only to explain that there are abundant  opportunities to make money online right now.)

Here’s the thing: : he wasn’t in enough pain before. But now he wants to come over and have me work with him.  And I told him I’m happy to do it.

But first there’s a site I told him to go and check out: Anyone can make money with this. You don’t need a website or a product but it does take a little bit of work.

It’s very straightforward, and has great instructions and it will put money in your pocket to pay some bills or fund your own business with your own ebooks and information products.  Plus  it can stop the “no cash-flow” syndrome

So if  you’re in enough pain, or want to avoid reaching that point, and if you are looking for cash flow go to: register, watch the videos and if it’s for you, you can get started TODAY.

I hope you take advantage of this opportunity if you’re struggling because it could be just what you need to get on your feet!

The Top 3 Ecourse Excuses You Should NEVER Use To Avoid Creating Your Ecourse!

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

When you really break down your internet business, having an Ecourse is just good common business sense.

Whether your ecourse is text, audio, or video, it NEVER hurts to have at LEAST one available for your prospects, subscribers and/or clients.

BUT, people always have excuses as to why they don’t.  Here are some of the excuses I hear quite a bit.  Please don’t let these same excuses get in your way from having a successful business.

Excuse #1:  I can’t write. Here’s the solution for that excuse.  Find a service on the internet that will record your voice (there are several offered for free).  Then, record your voice and thoughts.  In other words, talk out your Ecourse.  You can then just link to it and bingo, you’ve created an ecourse without writing a thing.

Excuse #2:  My topic is saturated. Really?  Everything there is to know about your topic is out on the internet somewhere?  There is nothing you can say that hasn’t been said before?  You’re not unique in any way?  Let me ask you this, ever have teacher in school that you just couldn’t quite understand?  Then, when you heard another teacher teach the same topic, you understood it quite easily?  Do you think that could happen on the internet as well?  Stop and think about that one for a while.

Excuse #3:  No one is interested in my topic. This one kills me every time.  I know of at least one person interested in your topic…YOU!  And I’ll bet if you’re interested in your topic, you have run across others that are interested as well.  It will be extremely difficult to find some sort of topic that has not been covered somewhere on the internet, wouldn’t you agree?   If it’s covered, you can do an Ecourse on it.

There you have it, three of the top Excuses why someone doesn’t create their own Ecourse.  If you decided NOT to do an ecourse, at least come up with something original as to why not.  But please, don’t let excuses stop you!

What Will It Take For You To Write Your eBook?

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Research shows that 81% of people think they have a book or ebook in them but less than 1% will ever write one! Why? Because they think it’s difficult. They think they don’t have enough to say. They think they aren’t good enough. They think  it will take forever. They think they don’t have time.

As you can see, the excuses are numerous.  But what I find really interesting is the difference between the people who take the leap and those who don’t.

For instance, I had someone who wanted to take my last workshop  but she was  in Australia and with the time difference they couldn’t possibly take the workshop.  But I had a participant who was from Austrailia in the workshop!  He had to attend at all hours but he managed to do it!

Other people don’t take the workshop  because they don’t know what they are going to write about-even though I specifically say that we will figure out what your best topic will be in the workshop.

And the truth is many people start out thinking they know what they are going to write about, but change their minds once they find out my criteria for writing a profitable ebook anyway!

And sometimes people take the workshop and keep changing topics so they can’t actually get anything written! But other people who are just as scared to move forward take it anyway, let whatever resistance they have come up, deal with it and write fabulous ebooks!

So what’s the difference?  In my experience it’s their motivation.  The more motivated you are the better chance you have of completing any task you say you want you want to complete in your life including writing an ebook.

So the question is what’s your motivation? And is it strong enough to carry you through.  If not find another one that will and you’ll be amazed at how fast you can accomplish writing your ebook or any other goal in your life! !
