I get probably fifty emails every day about some new-fangled way to make millions literally overnight. For just $50 to $600 a month (or worse, just a one-time payment of $6500!), you too could have these secrets! Puh-lease! These guys are just scamming people and it’s about to make me sick. There is no fast track way to millions. Sure, if you get lucky with the new Tickle-Me Elmo you might hit it big real fast, but the honest to God truth is that it takes more than fifteen minutes a day and it sure takes more than one night to make it big. It just does. Google doesn’t even crawl that fast.
The latest scoundrel about blew my mind. A fifteen page sales letter, fancy car pictures, and the man was posing by his fifty-foot catamaran. Overnight, supposedly, he made nearly half a million dollars. The check came in the mail the day before his home was to go into foreclosure, and minutes before the repo guy was coming for his car. Sound believable? Not to me.
The thing is, every “guru” has a rags to riches story to tell and they are all starting to sound the same. Some poor schmoe who has no internet knowledge whatsoever, turns on his computer, and poof! he’s a millionaire. The next day he’s buying a big new home and is posing for his sales letter to tell everyone else how he made his fortune.
The truth is that these gurus are full of bunk. There are real ways to make money out there, but they do not give you ten websites for free, and they do not have some magic program where you just press a button and whammo, you’re rolling in the cabbages. Doesn’t happen and never will.
If you want to make money online, you have to do it right and not fall for the scammers. Otherwise, you’ll just spend a lot of money and end up right where you started, looking for a real, legit solution. And why waste that kind of time?
