Imagine Making Money While You Sleep
imagine making money while you sleep. Imagine waking up richer every morning than when you went to bed the night before. Imagine receiving streams of money from people all over the world. Imagine a business that operates on automatic pilot— whether you show up or not. Imagine low overhead and high profits. Imagine operating your business from exotic worldwide locations—from a cell phone on the beach in Tahiti or from your laptop in a restaurant atop the Eiffel Tower. If you can imagine these things, you can achieve them using the vehicle of the Internet.
I'm so excited to be sharing this information with you. I know that if you follow the strategies and techniques in this book, you will be well on your way to Internet riches and a lifestyle that will be envied by almost everyone you meet.
If you ask most fledgling entrepreneurs why they want to be in business the usual answer is "to make some money." But when you pin them down with some more probing questions, it will most likely boil down to some-thing like this. . . .
After I've taken care of my basic needs, I want to be free . . . To do what I want When I want Where I want With whomever I want For as long as I want Without having to worry about money.
Does that describe you?
If so, then let's make sure that the by-product of your start-up Internet business is freedom. It's not to sell a bunch of stuff, or to get 15 gazillion hits a day, or to hire 1,000 employees, or have the coolest graphics, or to have the fastest-growing company in the world, or to have the best prod-ucts, or to get your name in the paper, or to launch an IPO. Some of these things may even be counterproductive to obtaining freedom. If free-dom is your goal, don't lose sight of it.
I mention this because thousands of beginning entrepreneurs launch new businesses each week without asking this all-important question: Why are we doing this? If they do ask, they usually come up with the fol-lowing answer: "Because we want to break free from our jobs." Therefore, they escape the low-paying "job prison" for a potentially higher-paying "self-employment prison." Even if you trade golden handcuffs for plat-inum handcuffs, you're still locked up.
