TOP SECRET: I am going to reveal a rarely discovered, rarely used, technique for creating vast amounts of wealth, almost instantly…even if you are low on cash and are currently unemployed!!
How’s that for making a strong claim?! But I am serious.
This website is here to help you succeed. My objective for this website is “Headlines you can convert into strategies to help you succeed”. And, notice, no commercials, no ads, no requests for donations, nothing but my hope that this website helps YOU. So, tell your friends who may be able to benefit from this Nugget.
I’m going to demonstrate one in-your-face technique that far too few people are paying attention to.
Okay…let’s jump right into how to make this work for you… or for one of your contacts who may be struggling to find employment.
Step one: THINK. (Don’t laugh. I mean really THINK!! Set aside a couple of hours each day and do some hardcore introspection.)
Step two: DISCOVER WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT. (If you don’t know what you are good at, or have a hard time dissecting your knowledge and skill sets, go to the library, or look through AMAZON.COM for book titles such as: “HOW-TO” and “LEARNING”/”ACQUIRING”/”WINNING”/”GETTING”/”BEATING”. Do you do any of those skills?)
Step three: ARTICULATE WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT. (Build it out step by step. What makes you better than average at that? Have others noticed how good you are at that? Have others asked you questions about that? If so, specifically what kinds of questions?)
Step four: PACKAGE IT. (You have to be able to teach it to others. Don’t make this step too complicated. Yet, make it thorough enough that others will ride your journey to becoming good at your skill set. In other words, explain how and why you spent more time doing and becoming good at that particular skill. Something caused you to do so. What was it, step by step? HOW did you acquire the skill? How much time did you spend? What mistakes did you make? How did you learn to overcome those mistakes? etc… Think of packaging as assembling a product and then putting it in a box ready to put on a shelf at a store. People have to notice it, want to read the outer box, be impressed with the contents and be satisfied when they look inside and pull the product out of the box. Your ideas are just like a physical product. Package it right and it will sell through quickly and in high volume.)
Step five: PROVE IT. (For this you need to be able to do it over and over again so others can see you doing it. If there are contests, competitions, or public events, participate to demonstrate to others. If there are no public events, per se, then go where the public assembles so you can demonstrate at those events. For example, if you are going to sell public speaking lessons, volunteer to emcee the event, or ask to be permitted to say a few words appropriate to the event–don’t make it a commercial to advertise your new business, just speak in a way that is apropos to the event at hand and impressive enough to showcase your “spontaneous” public speaking skills, etc. Or, if you are planning to teach or supplement math skills for the purpose, perhaps, of taking the anxiety out of math for school kids, then perhaps begin by volunteering to help after hours at a school, etc. Whatever knowledge or skill it is that you plan to sell, you might want to begin the process of becoming known by building a bit of a reputation by word-of-mouth before you sink money into promotions. Test the waters, so to say in a low-cost manner before sinking your capital into something that may not justify large expenditures for promotions.)
Step six: PROMOTE IT. (After you have a bit of a reputation for your skill, and you believe you can attract a constant stream of new customers, it may be time to advertise. If so, start with low-cost methods until you are certain it is time to ramp up into more expensive mediums of advertising. Low-cost suggestions: possibly a vehicle decal, business cards, a discrete lawn sign in front of your house–if your by-laws permit doing so–, ad a tag line to your signature line in your emails, even a low-cost website, etc.)
Step seven: PAY OTHERS TO PROMOTE YOU/YOUR SKILL. (Once you become busy, it becomes difficult to keep working at the art of attracting a continuously large enough stream of new customers while conducting/doing your business. This can be the failure point of most business start ups. Finding new customers is easy at first. After a short period of time, finding new customers becomes more difficult and time consuming. Once the low-hanging fruit is picked, it gets harder to find good fruit, so to say. Your strategies and tactics of culling new customers must evolve with your business progress. To keep mining new customers, it may be necessary to pay a portion of your “profits” to others who are able to bring in new customers. Even when you are a screaming success it makes sense to pay someone else to concentrate on winning you new venues, audiences, appearances, etc., to keep your company large and/or growing. Yes, I am talking about an agent, a manager, a sales person, a marketer, anyone who can concentrate on the job of winning opportunities while you do the hard work of sharing what you are good at.)
HERE IS A LIST OF POSSIBLE? IDEA-JOGGERS.
If you are BETTER THAN AVERAGE at any of these, then you can be earning money WITHOUT having to put out huge bundles of cash to get started. So, even those of you reading this who have been unemployed for a long time can do this. Money is not the barrier, since you won’t need a lot of money to get started. It’s your willingness to try that will be your barrier.
- Mathematics. Do you understand calculus is like a second language? Are you good at algebra, geometry, trigonometry?
- Memory work. Can you teach some memorization techniques?
- Public speaking. Have you learned to master your fear of standing in front of hundreds of people and can you assemble some advice to teach others to conquer their fear?
- Making friends. There’s a book by that title that has sold multi-millions of copies, so there is a great market for this!!
- Mentoring. Can you teach others how to mentor? Or how to find a mentor?
- Building great teams.
- Jogging. Especially how to dress in the northern climates to be able to run outdoors in cold and freezing-cold weather, including use of proper footwear or selecting cleats to place over the soles of running shoes, etc.
- Weight lifting/personal training.
- Weight loss. If you have mastered the information in the easy-reading but highly valuable books by Dr. John A. McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., Dr. Neal Barnard, (See my “Anti-Ageing” page for an introduction to their concepts by clicking the “Anti-Ageing” tab above.), then you are in an ideal position to challenge all the major highly-profitable weight loss organizations, without spending a bunch of money. And… you’ll help your new followers to save a bunch of money on groceries, too. Some of that money can come to you once you have become “living proof” of how easily McDougall-Eesselstyn-Barnard concepts work in real life, something I’m sure those big organizations don’t want people to know about.
- Tai chi.
- Website building.
- Computer coding.
- Building robots.
- Operating a drone.
- Astronomy or building telescopes.
- Drawing/painting (images).
- NOW IT’S YOUR TURN…MAKE YOUR OWN LIST FROM THIS POINT ONWARD…How can you help others? It’s that simple!!
You can make money by packaging and selling whatever you know or do that is better than the AVERAGE person. If it’s good enough, THEY probably will WANT to PAY YOU for WHAT YOU HAVE.
