Can’t Someone Else Do It?
If you would have asked me this question a few years ago, I would have stared back at you with my best Homer Simpson look, and said something like, “Doh!, … Why ask me? … Can’t someone else do it!
How can I build a website? … Sorry, but, I don’t have a clue.
I can laugh at this now, as I think back a few short years ago before I began searching for a way to learn more about the Internet and how I could hopefully jump on this wagon and hitch it to a star. Thus began a long and frustrating search for the knowledge and skills I would require to do this.
Like most of you, I couldn’t believe the tons and tons of information that was available out there. I never imagined, in my wildest dreams, how easy it could be to become a millionaire and live the millionaire lifestyle.
What was I doing working 8-10-12 hours a day like a dirty dog, to barely get by and make ends meet?
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not an ungrateful S.O.B., that doesn’t appreciate anything. It’s just that after almost 30 years in the construction business, my body was starting to hurt, and I wondered how long I could keep doing this. You see, Heavy Construction is like going to the weight room at the local gym and working out, all day!
Don’t believe me, give a try sometime. 30 or 40 pounds of tools and safety equipment hung over your back and shoulders, to carry around all day and produce results. No looking cool and flexing your muscles here, … get the job done! … and there’s more, once you’re finished.
By this time in my life, I had had enough, and I was perfectly willing, to let the young guys finish the job. So back to the Dot Com Millionaire lifestyle.
I needed Training
I knew I needed training.
After all, that’s how I had spent my entire career in construction. Always learning new skills to keep up in this very demanding business. Not only is the work physically hard, but it is also Structural Engineering, pure and simple. I was involved mostly in the “structural” aspects of the buildings, bridges, and other structures that I worked on.
Why would my new career be any different?
I needed a training program to get me started.
Any keyword related to making money online, brought back, thousands of pages of search results. Where to start and how could I find a program to get myself started. I read pages and pages of reviews and stories for over a week.
I like reading and I read a lot, but I soon felt as if my eyeballs were going to fall out of their sockets. I would have to take the plunge and sign-up to one of these programs, and sign-up I did.
The first course I signed up for, cost me thousands of dollars, (I will be giving you a review of this course in a future post).
I chalked it all up to the cost of getting an education.
I Get Educated
I got an education, and I got educated well. I couldn’t believe that I had been that naive and that stupid!
In my foolish quest to become an online millionaire, I had fallen for the oldest trick in the book, … buying-a-pig-in-a-poke.
I don’t like being too hard on myself, so I decided to move on.
I was very fortunate to have been blessed with great parents. I was raised to be honest and respectful, and that my hard work would one day be rewarded. I forgot about becoming a Dot Com millionaire and went back to my day job.
This feeling of dejection lasted less than a week. I decided to give it one more try. More reviews and more search engine results from pages, and I finally took another plunge.
What!?!? … are you f—-ing Nuts! Haven’t you learned anything? Are you O.K.? Apparently, I wasn’t OK.
I had had this crazy notion of making my money back. I would show those SOB’s not to mess with me.
I signed up for another program
Yes, I did.
My persistent searching and my newly acquired wisdom led me to a free course. Just what I needed.
A free program, after all, … I had just lost thousands of dollars, and God knew that I needed a break. I began to read this new course outline, for what seemed like hours.
I had just found a better class of “scumbags”. These guys were really smooth. This wasn’t their first rodeo. They knew the con-game, and they knew it well.
Eventually, I reached the end of their post and was presented with a fantastic opportunity, that was only available to me. I felt so special and besides, they were giving it away for only $37.97.
How could I lose? $38 bucks! A piece of cake.
This small amount led me to a landing page and one evening after coming home from my day job, I decided to continue my studies, and resume my quest for riches. Again I read for hours. Like I said before, I read a lot so I’m not a slow reader, but I wanted to digest every little nugget of this newly found program.
Finally, I reached the end and again I was showered with praise. I was just the kind of smart person that they needed on their team and I was fortunate to be offered this opportunity to get my foot in the door. One small hiccup. These people worked very hard to keep their business going and nothing is really free.
I’m Swimming in the Deep End Now
I could continue hanging out with these “wonderful people” but they would need another $197.97.
By this time, I was getting pretty familiar with the vocabulary and I was following along quite well. I was learning the business, $200.00 dollars was less than a day’s wages if I wanted to make it so.
More reading and learning and I thought I had finally arrived.
These relatively smaller fees were easier to swallow, and besides, I couldn’t expect to get a free lunch.
Needless to say, this next batch of pages led to a $497,97 offer and I bought into that one again. Reading more of these pages led to another offer of $997.97. Now I was angry, no, I was MAD!
Enough of this crap, I’m done. Stick a fork in me, I’m done!
That’s where that story ends, and my new life began.
I Found What I was Looking For
That was almost 4 years ago. Today, I spend my day’s on my websites and I have become quite knowledgeable and successful at it. Unfortunately, I did not find my get-rich-quick-scheme, but that’s because they don’t exist, and I’ve stopped looking for them a long time ago.
I only mention this in passing, in an effort to expose these “scumbags” so that they don’t rip you off as well. Today, I belong to a community of people who have dedicated their lives, to teaching entrepreneurs how to get started building their own online business, and for pennies on the dollar.
How can you Build your Website?
Building a website today is a simple task. Even if you are a complete newbie you can build a website in minutes. The problem with that scenario is, “what do you do with this new website if you have no training to continue moving forward”?
Well, lucky for you, I paid to find out, and I can show you how to get this training for less than 1 dollar a day, but let’s get back to how I build a website.
Building a Website is Easy, and it can also be Fun
In life we a need a purpose, a direction to walk towards. The same thing applies to a website.
There is no point and no value in having a website that just sits there and does nothing. If you’ve made it this far you are certainly interested in learning more. Click on this link, to find out how easy it is to build a free website. Yes, I said free.
I’ve done enough talking and writing for now, … it’s your turn to take action. You won’t get ripped off, of your hard-earned money, and neither will I. A win-win situation for both of us.
I’m leaving for my power-walk now. Be brave and do yourself a favor. You deserve a break as well.
I look forward to hearing from you.
