Don’t Quit Your Day Job, Yet:
Note: This is the 15th in the “GetStarted” Sequence.
You just found this Awesome Program and they tell you that you are going to make oodles of money. It may be tempting to tell your boss to take a hike but don’t quit your day job, yet. You need to know a few things first.
How long do you need to wait? Some programs promise instant response while others may not show immediate results. You need to be aware of any delays in your future income. Frankly, it is not a good Idea to count the money until it is in your hands.
What are the processes? Do you need to perform certain activities regularly to participate in the profits or is it really an autopilot program? How much time do you need to devote to every day? Are there recurring costs? Sure, it may be easy once you have the process down. Until then, you may be spending significant portions of your time creating content, ads or graphics.
Timing is Everything:
Wait until the money is coming in. It is only a sure thing when you have the money in hand. Remember that only a small percentage of your audience will even click on your ad or presentation. Of those, only a small proportion will actually sign up. Of those who sign up, many will not follow through. You don’t want to quit your day job until you are receiving regular responses from your repeated efforts.
Listen to your Advisors:
Your advisors have been here before. Listen to what they tell you and follow through on the processes they suggest, even when you don’t immediately understand the value of the efforts. This doesn’t mean that you should buy every program they offer you. This means that you should figure out how to achieve the goals that they have set.
Build your Networks:
If you are just starting out, your networks consist of people you know. This is frequently called your “warm market”. It is tempting to go right out and convince them all about this “fantastic opportunity” that you have found. You may find it better to wait until you have proven that it works by creating the income that you desire. Take your time to build your networks at a place like IBO Toolbox. Invest your time in learning what your network needs and discovering how you can solve the problems that they have.
The Big Boys:
No offense to the Big Boys that show you all of the great money they are making. This is not their first Rodeo. Often, what they are showing you is the result of making this offer to the networks that they have spent years building. If you are just starting out, it will take time to build your networks up to the same level. Remember this when you become one of the Big Boys.
Develop Your Processes:
You need to determine what will make up your daily routine. How much time should be spent expanding your networks? How much time can you afford to devote to creative efforts? What is your process for maintaining contact with your networks?
Learn to Work For Yourself:
Working for yourself is not easy. You won’t have anyone telling you what you need to do and when. One approach is to assign part of yourself as “The Boss”. That is the part that is responsible for making sure that things get done. When you are thinking of taking a break, ask “The Boss” if it is okay. Remember to reward yourself for your efforts and to schedule a few breaks in the day. It may be tempting to work straight through but your old boss gave you the occasional break for a reason.
Don’t quit your day job, yet. You need the time to learn new skills, to learn to apply the skills you have to new tasks and to learn what really works. It can be a steep learning curve. Until you start getting money in hand, you cannot be sure of anything. So you can begin to see why you don’t want to quit your day job right away. On the other hand, if you don’t want to condemn yourself to a 9-5 JOB for the rest of your life, the time to start is now. Nove-Noga!
