People in the United States complain about their finances, thinking that if they did nothing other than to win the lottery that everything would be perfect. I saw a couple walk into a Jack in the Box the other day while I was sitting down to eat with the family, and the family brought their mother-in-law to join them, and when they sat down to eat dinner the girlfriend/wife pulled out lottery tickets and passed them out to the three family members, and they were all hoping for a win. Now, I wouldn’t say they were dressed for the occasion, but they looked like they had better odds winning the lottery to better their finances in their lives to make a change or difference. If we were to look at the graphs we would see about 87% of all Americans are looking for a solution to their finances, just to see these types of people out there reminded me of why I started this quest for myself, and the reasons are the same. Most of these people don’t want to accept the fact that in order to get someplace new in their lives they have to take a step in the right direction, this step is the hardest for many, due to the changes that are needed on a daily basis. To keep training your thoughts and keeping your mind on your goal in order to get there is difficult at times, many think that it takes being rich to get you richer in life, and that’s not the case. It is true that you have to have money to make more money, but the way you use that money to fix your situation depends on your determination to change yourself and your ways financially.
As I drove to the supermarket another day I heard another person as he was putting the groceries into his car, the guy was on the phone talking to someone and he was telling the other person on the phone that he has no money and no gas, and spent what he did have on the food he just put into the vehicle, I don’t know about you but it doesn’t seem like this guy’s finances are in order. Too many people are going down the same road/direction in life, but don’t understand one simple rule, In order for you to get ahead in life (you need to invest in yourself) in most cases, this could be a very small cost but will change your life forever.
In this economy, it’s not hard to get motivated in creating your own online business, most people see the economy changing right in front of their eyes due to the lack of customers that come into local businesses anymore. Just about 6 out of 10 families in America alone are studying and finding out the facts of the worthiness of creating their own online business, and not working for someone else anymore. This intrigued feeling has compelled many people to be motivated by this movement, the economy changes every year, for most people working that 40-hour job and getting paid minimum wage and even those making a little more than minimum wage are having trouble paying bills. It’s hard to live on a dime, but in these cases, people are living like that. Education plays a big role in who you are and where you work in society, seems like the more you educate yourself, the better your finances become, this is right and wrong in today’s society. People are finding out that it’s not what you know, but rather who you know, that can make your finances climb. Education is always a must, but come to find out, people without sales or marketing experience are turning heads in the online market and are creating their financial security through their successes. Finding a qualified mentor to teach you success is hard when there are so many mentors in the society that claims to be a mentor. Research shows that just becoming an affiliate of a company won’t get you rich, your work ethics plus a mentor and affiliate products that actually sell and convert will allow you to generate the type of income you desire.
Most people go through life not opening the jar to success because of the insecurity of failure, these failures and other emotions endured by opening the jar, and getting out of your comfort zone, are areas in our life that we need to explore. The more you stay in your comfort zone, the more you don’t see the reality of what might be possible, people say to me all the time,“the ability to focus on what you really want to change in your life, is your ability to change your mindset” this is a very true statement in life; only you can say “I can” or “I will” and actually have the mindset to actually do it. Your potential in life is your strength to overcome the possibilities of creating your own financial security.
As we dive right into 2019 with the desire to create ourselves in this world and create our own online entrepreneurship, E-Commerce businesses give the economy a push of greater and more expensive technology and other associated products into the market, this push makes us feel like we’re spending more money every year just to get by. The need to create ourselves and create the types of finances, we need now and for our future are becoming greater every year as we look at our expenses versus our income. If you look back to the year 2000, technology was booming and becoming more and more popular for entrepreneurs, creating their own wealth in society. As the entrepreneur started creating that presence on the internet, and the internet becoming more of an E-Commerce place place for customers, we can see from the statistics that the E-Commerce online retail sales for the year 2016-2022 will increase from a revenue of $360 million to $638 million. This is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to see into the future, and start building their empires on the internet rather than working for someone else.
These statistics show just how reliable the internet has become in generating an online income for the entrepreneur, and how much retail sales are increasing every year for big businesses and even the small ones. These are opportunities that are randomly missed or overlooked by the beginner entrepreneur on his or her way to the top financially. These days it’s so much easier to create your own presence online and very affordable. Motivation and mentor-ship is the best way for success and does not have to cost you a fortune to get started.
The American dream used to be to have a beautiful home and a nice affordable car to drive and be financially close to the middle class as possible. Nowadays it’s not that easy to have those luxuries, especially after one year ends and the next begins. Taxes and other necessary monthly costs for gas, electric, and or food prices seem to go up,also not to mention, back in the day, cell phones didn’t cost a fortune and set everyone back financially. In these times people need a miracle JOB to be financially secure. People have to be aware that these types of changes in technology and taxes are going to keep happening, and bill prices are going to keep going up. This brings up the topic of what is the American dream of the 21st century, and that’s not hard to figure out what is it by watching prices go up every year, and minimum wage or just above the minimum wage earners having a hard time staying in the middle class financially. Financially, people are going to have to supplement their income in one way or another, by means of getting a second job or create their own online home business. The challenges that they are facing at this point are the fact that the normal job they have, brings in a low income in every month, and trying to create an online business will take extra finances to create. This is where people lose sight of a dream or goal and start backpedaling in their minds and keep telling themselves, they can’t do it or It won’t work because of the negativity around them discourages them into failure.
The reason that most people fail is lack of a positive mindset and a way to drown out the negativity from others with not like-minded people. The whole reason for people to be around other positive like-minded people is to keep feeding positive thoughts into our minds. Negativity is so negative, it’s like trying to put your fist through a brick wall, it’s very hard to do, but positivity encourages you to succeed and transforms your mind into thinking that you have no limits in life. Online businesses are a better source of income for the middle to first class. These businesses create a large following and a low overhead for an online type business. Financial flow is determined by your determination to take action.
Many American’s want to be able to stay home and work from home, but that desired flame gets burnt out quickly when they see what’s actually involved in creating that online home based business. Some get started and the processes seem to be more overwhelming so people divert back to their old ways of thinking it was less stressful. People don’t understand that they need to get out of their comfort zone where things aren’t so easy in the beginning and start creating a life outside of the regular daily JOB. Many don’t see that light at the end of the tunnel, they just see the processes and think it’s too much to do and they are right. Most don’t understand how they can do all of the things that are needed, and don’t understand, that a business like this doesn’t just happen overnight. There are people needed in certain positions in your marketing business that you just can’t do yourself. People from all around think that they can just start an internet business and make good money, It is just not possible unless you’re already established in the market, and you have a decent team established for the many marketing positions.
Sometimes people think that marketing is easy, and I can tell you right now that it’s not. I’ve been in business for more than two years now, and the challenges I have faced at home within the first two years, and with significant others not having that same desire and want to better their finances, but rather want to stay employed at less than $2k a month. That’s not the kind of life I desire. My path is set much higher than most people and my determination is my main priority in life. Within those two years I thought “hey!” now I’m an affiliate, I can sell products, but learning how to sell products or even someone else’s products is not easy, and the stress to find out how to sell the product correctly wasn’t an easy step. You don’t know how long those products have been on the market already, and that’s the downside to affiliate marketing. As I monitored my website with these products and the traffic I sent to the website, my numbers weren’t adding up to any profit. My traffic was paid traffic and I was getting 5000 hits per day, but on the other hand, I was noticing no purchases. The more closely I looked at what products the customers were viewing, I could see them clicking into the affiliate product side, but no purchases, and this set up a red flag for me. As I did some more research on the affiliate products, the products were more than 10 years old and that’s how long they have been seen on the internet. When you’re getting started like I was, there is a lot to evaluate before jumping into an affiliate program.
