A Pyramid Scheme, Really?

Today is the last day of 2018 and of course, once again, I have to address the whole “Pyramid Scheme” and “online scam” BS.

Why BS?

Let’s look at a typical organizational chart for a traditional company.

Traditional Organizational Chart

That is what a “Pyramid” looks like and as far as I’m concerned, that IS a pyramid scheme.

If you want to see something really funny…I found a video that I thought was pretty good from a while back. Click HERE to access the video!

Check out today’s podcast to listen to further rants about what I think of a “Pyramid Scheme.”

Podcast: Is Making Money Online Really Easy?

Easy Online Income Generation – True or False?

First things first…

If you want to skip straight to the podcast then go down to the bottom of this post and download the podcast…and have a great day!

Same thing for the video that I made during the podcast. You can access that by clicking HERE!

With that out of the way, the question remains; Is there really a such thing as “easy online income generation?”

The short answer is yes, it is easy.

The problem is, as most of you know, I don’t like the word easy because, to me, it evokes the idea that all you have to do is push your “easy” button and all will be done for you and all that is required now is for you to walk out, open up your mailbox and viola! Cash!

Look, for me and my perspective, generating income online is not difficult and is quite simple.

To me, that is easy.

It does not mean that there will be no work or effort applied, it just means that it really isn’t all that hard.

The Secret to Online Income Generation

Now that I have made that statement, I’m going to give you the keys as to why I think generating an income online IS easy.

The secret is:

You identify the audience that is seeking what you have!

Simple, right?

Well, I have to tell you right now, that conducting the research and discovering your target audience is the number one reason for online success.

Failing to identify your target audience is the number one reason why most people will fail.

You can listen to whatever “guru” you choose, but in the end the real secret comes down to finding people that want what you have.

Think about it, how hard is it really to sell something to someone that already wants it?

I mean, unless they really can’t afford it, they are probably going to buy it.

So why don’t they?

If you are providing the perfect answer to a prospect’s challenge and they still walk away, you can’t take this personally.

Chances are, that you haven’t yet connected with that prospect or they need more time to see if you walk the walk…


…they are the type of person that just has to think about any decision for a while.

And that’s find. It doesn’t matter what the reason is.

If you learn how to do things correctly, you will have a chance to promote your business, product or service to these folks at a later date.

We are playing the odds here folks and odds of making a sale are so much better when you are selling to a group of people that have expressed an interest in buying what you are selling.

But back to the main point of this post, as long as you find your ideal audience and you are promoting what that audience is looking for then you have a great chance to generate income by selling to that audience.

I know, it sounds easy and it is a little more complicated than I’m throwing out here right now, but it’s not really that hard.

Moral of the story?

Do your research! Find your audience and try to find out what solutions you have for their problems or challenges.

Bottom Line

The bottom line is this…

…generating an income online can be achieved very simply, but you have to take things one step at a time.

Doing the research and finding the right audience for your product, business opportunity or service is the first step.

Like anything else in life, you don’t start in the middle or at the end, but at the beginning.

Do What You Love

Love what you do, Do what you love

Do you ever wonder why it seems so easy for some people to achieve so much with their work, while others struggle along?

Maybe it’s the psychologist inside of me wanting to get out, but I’m one of those folks that are always interested in the motivation behind any person’s success or failure; part of that whole, “what makes people tick,” thing.

Part of the reason for my own motivation to create new, and hopefully, interesting content has to do with the fact that I absolutely love teaching people how to do things online.

Now when I say “things online,” obviously I am referring to marketing and promoting business opportunities online as well as teaching people the skills and methods that I have found that work for me.

No, I’m not the best teacher or mentor on the planet, but I do in fact love just about every second of it, which inspired me to write this article that you are reading now.

For me, if you do what you love then you aren’t working…it’s something more.

Inspired to inspire

I do not have any idea where this concept of teaching others came from, but I knew as soon as I started to do it that I was in for life!

There is just something about helping people overcome personal hurdles to a point where what you have done has made a significant impact, hopefully a positive impact, on people’s lives.

Whatever it is, for me it’s like a jolt of adrenaline! I sometimes think that I get more out of it than the folks that are that are learning how to do the thing I’m teaching!

The point is that I am inspired to inspire and help others and for me that’s a huge win!

What is it that you love to do?

Are you doing it?

In not, why not?

The other day a friend of mine commented on some sort of realization that she had saying, “Man, this life is short….too short to be working all the time just to pay your electric bill.”

I would say it’s worse when the job you are going to day in and day out to pay that electric bill is something you do not enjoy.

Life is short, ask anyone over the age of 50 and they will be more than happy to tell you how fast time flies.

The question is, what are you doing about it?

Are you going to make the next five years look like the last five?

If you are having a good time and find yourself quite fulfilled with those last five years then my hat is off to you.

However, what I have found is that most people just aren’t that happy with where they have found themselves in life. Where they are, and where you are too, is a matter of choices.

All men are self-made, but only the successful admit it – Earl Nightingale

If you want something more then you are going to have to do something more or something differently from what you have been doing.

This isn’t rocket science, it’s common sense.

Online today, there are so many opportunities that can have such a positive affect on your life, but none of them will come to you and none of them will do the work for you.

Decide what you want, a life of doing what you have to do to pay that electric bill, or a life of doing what you love. The choice is yours.

In this video, and I also made this a podcast that you can download as well, I discuss the whole “Easy” online income.

Most of you that have followed me for some time know that I detest the word easy. You may just as well state that you are lazy.

What I really do not understand with most people is that while they want a business, they are still clutching to the word and maybe the whole concept of “easy.”

This just grates my skin the wrong way!

Owning a business, online or offline, is not going to be easy. An online business may be simple, but there will always be some work to be done, some skill to learn and master.

If you are not interested in building your business then you may want to look elsewhere.

Hope you enjoy the video and the podcast!

Indecision is a Killer!

Welcome to this latest podcast, one that I have been wanting make for a while now.

In July, 1984 at the ripe old age of 18, I joined the Military and one of the best things that ever occurred during my time of service was attending some of the leadership courses that I took and the lessons I learned from them.

One of the main focuses, I would say, is that in those courses we were always taught to be decisive. That is, make a decision; even a bad decision is better than no decision or indecision.

This lesson was not lost on me and translates into any way of life whether it be on a battlefield or in the world of business.

Leaders make decisions and it’s much simpler to correct a bad decision and get headed in the right direction than to look, and be, incompetent in the decision making process.

Where are your dreams?

In this podcast I ask the simple question, What are your dreams and where did they go?

This Is a particularly interesting question to me because it seems as though as children we all had many fantastic dreams and ideas of life, but somewhere along they way to adulthood we stuffed those dreams in the closet.

Once again, I’m not bashing on a job, but I do want to know why people believe that they are “stuck” living out their day to day in situations that they, at least claim, do not enjoy.

In this podcast, I ask the question if a franchise is a good way to achieve business ownership.

While franchises seem to be a good idea, I decided to do a little research (about 10 minutes) and the one thing that jumped out at me from every page that I pulled up was the cost of entering the franchise opportunity.

are franchises the answer

No matter what the franchise was, I found that almost all of them required tens of thousands of dollars JUST TO GET STARTED!

No guarantee of success, just an opportunity to join the company.

are franchises the answer

I know there are thousands of people out there that are looking for an opportunity and a franchise may be a way for some of them, but I’m pretty sure that most people are living paycheck to paycheck and don’t have this sort of money.

I just don’t get it.

People all day long will complain about their jobs, about the traffic, about the bills they have to pay…

…in general, people will complain about their crappy lives.

But when offered an opportunity to change that all, to do something that has the potential to radically change their lives for the better…well…these same folks will often walk away or they will rationalize away their dreams of doing something different.


In this podcast I ask this very question.

Why do people complain about their station in life, but when shown a way out…they opt out?

Hope you like the podcast. See you at the top!

comfort zone


I’ve decided to give you a little glimpse into what it is that we are working on.

So, in this post I’m just going to show you the exact video that I have made for one of the sections of my class/course guide.

I’ll then sort of explain exactly how this video fits into the class and what you should be able to expect when someone comes into the training program.

So…here’s the video!

OK, so for the explanation…

The Internet marketing course that I am designing focuses on the simplicity of generating an income online and is basically designed for people that are:

  • Frustrated with never making money online with their current or previous companies
  • Those new to Internet marketing or an online business opportunity
  • Folks that are tired of all of the complicated methods of generating traffic or marketing their programs
  • Anyone that is sick and tired of spending more money than they have to keep their current business afloat
  • Anyone that is sick and tired of spending too much money on simple tools for online business

With that said, the above video is a small sample of what I have been and am teaching people new to the online world.

The topics that I will cover in my upcoming course will be:

  • 3 steps to online marketing
  • Setting up a sales system
  • Creating content/videos for your system (it’s easy)
  • Generating traffic (also easy when you know how)
  • Finding your targeted market (MOST important step!)

We will also be putting a lot of effort into our Facebook group and our team membership site in order to provide our prospects and team members with up-to-date and consistent help and support.
