So there I was.

The One Big Secret to Making Money on The Internet

So there I was. Minding my own business. Reading my email. Dreaming of my internet millions that email after email promised me. All of this money without any work by me. And in just a few short weeks time.

Did I say promised me?

Did I say millions?

Did I say no work?

Did I say millions in just a few weeks time?

Yeah, I'm afraid I did.

Do you think I got excited about how my life was going to change? Get real. I mean come on. The more I read the more I was jumping up and down. Dude, I'm excited!

Here I was about to be rolling in the moola--big-time. And all I had to do was buy this special, secret, never before revealed information.

Wow! Everything I ever dreamed of was just sitting there waiting for me. I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on that - better than owning a McDonalds franchise - secret info.

Oh Yeah. I'm excited. But here's the rest of the story...

All this kind of stuff is crap. Pure Crapola. Because Sugar, There ain't no secrets.

You'll never receive money by doing nothing. And nobody can make you a promise of riches. No one has any idea what you're capable of doing. (That probably includes yourself)

Please don't waste your money or your time on info that promises you wealth for doing nothing.

And don't waste your money or your time on chasing secrets. There just ain't none.

But you can make money on the internet. Lots of money. But there's no damn secrets involved!

I'm sick and tired of internet novices getting reamed by the no-conscience jokers that promote this junk. It's one of my peeves. Like call waiting. Man, I dislike call waiting.

If I'm put on hold for call waiting I simply hang up. And I don't care who I'm talking to. It could be George Bush or a potential client. Screw em. Let em get back to me. Or not. My time is too valuable for that.

I want you to value your time, as well. By the way. You don't have to change who you are to make money. You don't have to pretend you're someone you're not. Life's too short for that.

And I don't want you to get taken by the internet marketing rascals. Before you throw away your good money on something you're not certain of -- call or email me.

I'll help you out. If I can't point you straight, odds are very good that I know who can.

So what's the one big secret to making money on the internet?

That there are no secrets. Making money on the internet is pretty much like making money off the internet.

Target a market. Find out their problems. Find a solution to those problems. Make your target market aware of your solution. Work with the ones who raise their hands.

Follow a system. Track everything you do. Watch your cash flow. Give more value than you take. Follow up. Re-sell your buyers. Become a problem solver.

Above all. Be yourself. Enjoy what you're doing. Never compromise your morals to make a business deal. Pick your associations wisely.

To sum this up... If your loved ones wouldn't like what you're thinking of doing, just say no.
