Freedom is a scent, like the top of a new born baby’s head. [Bono, U2]
This is so very true when you think about the whole Internet marketing scenario. Its a common concept that people think of financial freedom by owning their own successful business. This may be true but I dont agree with it 100%.
For example, Lets say, you owned a successful IT business 8-10 years ago and it was extremely successful. All of a sudden because of the global downturn, it bottomed out and you started to lose money as quick as you were making it. Are you financially secure now with residual income? I dont think so
Internet marketing is so very different in the respect that if you stay in the game long enough to build a successful down line, you will eventually be financially secure.Ok you may say that a downturn may hit internet marketing also but if you research the market, Internet marketing has boomed since it has evolved. It is here to stay. Once you get the scent that residual income awaits, you will start to devote all your energy and more into achieving your dream.
Internet marketing gives you financial freedom that no other company type can offer. You could go on vacation for 2 months, return and see that your commissions might have grown in the meantime!. Financial freedom for me is earning while on vacation, while sleeping, while in hospital, 24 hours around the clock.
The one drawback that you probably have guessed is positioning yourself to earn this residual income. This definitely is the hardest part and where the biggest percentage of opt-out’s occur. What you have to understand is that the payoff for the patience and time you put in initially to get your business off the ground is huge. There have been a lot of instances where an affiliate opted out in the initial stages because he did not think the progress was where it should have been.
It transpired thereafter, that if he had remained in the game, since he had sponsored energetic affiliates, he would have earned huge residual income from their efforts. He solely needed to maintain his position. I wonder does he have trouble sleeping at night! It may take 6-12 months before you register a profit in your business, but freedom awaits you if you stay committed. Dont end up being the guy that decided to opt out and has regretted it ever since. I reiterate, residual income awaits you only by staying in the game.
