My wife sent me an advertisement for a program to grow sales with the tag line: “Stop Cold-Calling.” I did some research and the people who put this plan together are making money on the books you are buying, not their methods.
The best way to be successful is doing something different, make some money, then write a book and start making money on the book. You don’t need to keep utilizing the method. Just write a book about it and make money on the book sales.
When you can sell by word of mouth only, you can work less. But it takes a lot of work to get to that point. Writing is work (believe me on that one!).
Remember Matthew Lesko, the guy that wore “Riddler-looking” outfits on television infomercials? He advertised his book which listed the ways you could rip off the government by getting FREE MONEY. He is makes his money on the book you buy. He stated in a Washington Post interview in 2007, “I get stuff for free and I sell it for as much as I can get.” ‘Nuff said.
Do the work, then write the book. And remember that there are no shortcuts on your road to success.
