If you go to Clickbank or do your own Google search for different online money making programs, be prepared to be overwhelmed. There’s over 10,000 courses and books on this topic. Even though I haven’t seen all of them, I’ve seen a lot of them. Most of them let you down. Not because their training isn’t good but because in many cases, it’s incomplete. Instead of giving you clarity, you get confused even more.
This is where most training programs go wrong:
You don’t get to talk to a real person when you take the training – There’s nothing worse than not being able to understand something you paid good money for and having no one to speak to for further clarification. If you have to go search on Google for answers then you’re right back to where you started. You get too much information and you will be overwhelmed.
Everything is presented all at once – Think of when you were in school. Did you immediately get presented with 10 or more years of lessons and textbooks at one time? Of course not as it would be ridiculous. You were presented with one lesson at a time. You had a teacher who made you understood the current lesson before you were shown the next more advanced lesson. This way, you could understand the current lesson before you were shown the next more advanced lesson. This way you could understand the foundational concepts before learning the more advanced ones. The trouble is that most people are not great self learners. If you present them with too many videos and lessons in one go, they get overwhelmed and confused. They don’t know where to start. They get paralyzed and just remain stuck because they are not getting any sense of progress along the way and they give up quickly. Most online courses work like this. You pay the money, get some log in details and then you’re left to make sense of all the training. The online marketing world needs a huge shake. We need to look at the most advanced learning techniques and apply them to our world so the average person can make sense of all the lessons and actually get results. Information should not be presented all at once. It should be presented in stages where the student can make sense of the basic things first and then the more advanced lessons.
They don’t have a proven track record of success (How many people have taken the training and got results with it?) – If you’re seeing the same generic testimonials for whatever course you’re buying, it’s a good clue that their training is outdated. A good measure of an effective training program is how many success stories they’ve created and how many of them are recent. When it comes business, universities like Harvard and Stanford are clearly effective training grounds as they are constantly churning out graduates who go on to become titans in business and build enormous companies. The very best online training programs have also helped created many famous internet marketing gurus and continue to do so.
They want a lot of money before you get to see any of the proper training – The best online training programs are the ones where the creator is able to make money on the success of the clients who implement the training. That way, they have a vested interest in seeing the clients do well and can charge less money upfront for access to the training. They earn their profits when the clients also start earning.
In all my time searching, I’ve come across one truly great training program which covers all 4 of the above points with this one:
You do get to talk to a real person and not just some sales rep but a real coach who knows what they’re talking about.
The training is presented one module at a time so you’re learning in bite sized chunks of information rather than getting completely overwhelmed the first time you login.
The clients who’ve taken the training do have a proven track record of success. Over the past 4 years alone, they’ve been able to make a combined total of $67 million.
You don’t need a lot of money to get started with the training. In fact, they don’t even ask for your credit card upfront as you can take the training for free.
Take my word for it, I’ve been through the training and it really does give you everything you need to start earning online.
There’s one Christmas movie that always sucker punches me right in the face: More popularly known as “A Christmas Story,” I like to call it “The Tragedy of Ralphie Parker.” Ralphie is a classic cultural symbol of disappointment. The stuff about the rifle is nowhere near as tragic as the subplot of the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring:
Ralphie eats so much cereal
And watches the mail so patiently
And so obsessively works on the code all to reveal the (dumb) secret message:
“Be sure to drink your ovaltine.”
I resonate with his disappointment on three levels:
Ralphie’s trust, expressed in working for the prize is totally betrayed.
Their “Decoder ring” was just a gimmick to get him to view their ad campaign
It demonstrates the impersonal and self serving nature of lots of management
I think it affects me so much because even thought that’s so common, I’m convinced that work doesn’t have to work that way. If you resonate with Ralphie, it may be time to work in a system that is directly designed to make you money. There’s no big business here, just intense focus on you, your development and your success.
All humans have hands. They way we work with our hands is a striking indication of our character and integrity. In generations past, men worked the ground with their hands and then they worked machines both to provide for their families. Women worked with their hands, cleaning and filling the home raising and disciplining children.
Some have used and continue to use their hands to take what doesn’t belong to them to hurt other people or to cover up injustices. Religious and economic forces exert their power with their hands (“The invisible hand,” “With a mighty hand and an outstretched arm”). Some people accuse the government of reaching its “hand” into their pockets.
What are your hands doing? At MTTB, we use our hands to take back our financial independence. We use our hands to back our financial independence. We use our hands to make a living for ourselves and for our loved ones. To set aside extra for tricky times. To upgrade our summer vacations.
Some people leave their hands behind their back as if they’re tied up with rope but they’re not. While you have the opportunity to make something for yourself, for your loved ones, to build the life you envision, use the hands you have. Don’t play the victim.
When I was little, I used to think that business was magical. Men in suits wave their hands around, smile and *poof!* money would appear. The more people I talk to, I’ve realised that they still think that business is about “saying the magical words”, waving your hands and *poof!*
They think there must be some “Secret order” of rich men who, by some priestly incantation are endowed with the powers of hand wavery. They’re close but they’re wrong. “Magic and science are twins,” our science fiction author observed. The difference is that, “One was sickly and died; the other was strong and throve.”
Making money isn’t magic. It’s a machine. Building a business isn’t about charisma, how much money you start out with or what kind of family your were born into. Building a business is about having the right blueprint and committing to follow the rules. Business is a science.
Our blueprint is 21 simple steps. We do as much of your grunt work as we can and then we coach you the rest of the way. You don’t have to be a magician and we’ve already developed the Way scientifically.
Chris doesn’t play tennis anymore and it’s not because of his hip replacement. That went astonishingly well. He had been afraid that, as happened to his dad, getting his hip replaced would keep him off the courts. A shy-but-spry empty-nester in his late fifties, Chris leaned heavily on a group of guys at the local tennis club for his social needs.
Every Tuesday and Thursday night, they traded partners and played a few sets of doubles and sat around afterward drinking beer and making conversation that shifted between locker room humour and moments of genuine connection. It was almost scripted like a sitcom.
All of that ended two months ago when a local philanthropist bought the tennis club’s property to develop it into another K-12 school. Unlike a sitcom, these real life guys in their fifties had neither the time nor the resiliency to fight for the tennis club in their local politics game. Half of the gang is still together playing at another club 45 minutes away but Chris can’t afford to retire let alone pay the more expensive dues at the new club. So, he’s out.
I’m not an end-times prophet but it’s no secret that “local politics” can happen to anybody. MTTB is an opportunity for good people like you who need just a little more time and just a little more money to keep life normal.
