Are You IFFY?
Many people say that working for themselves or working on Straight commission is just too 'IFFY' for them.
'I'd rather work for a company that will give me a check every week, that direct marketing stuff is just too 'IFFY' for me.'
'I couldn't quit my day job, it's just too 'IFFY' and your not guaranteed a job in 10 years. I want to work some place that will appreciate my efforts and I can retire from.'
Well, if you're like me at all you'll realize that this is just our parents and grandparents talking. As many of you know those days are pretty much over as far as having a job for life or finding any security for a job well done.
The only way to have a job for life IS to work for yourself.
The thing about working for yourself is:
'If He' doesn't get out of bed in the morning and
'If He' doesn't start his computer and
'If He' doesn't find a product or service to sell and
'If He' doesn't find a nitch for his Website and
'If He' doesn't get his web site indexed properly and
'If He' doesn't make his site content driven and
'If He' doesn't BELIEVE he will be a success and
'If He' doesn't have his own ezine and
'If He' doesn't write any articles and
'If He' doesn't promote them and
'If He' doesn't ACT on his ideas
He won't make any money. Period!
Think about the last 100 years. How far have we come? How far do we have to go?
Don't let any of your Dreams slip away. Take a chance on yourself, what do you have to loose? You just might surprise yourself.
Don't wake up one morning in 5 or 10 years form now and say to yourself, 'If only I had followed my idea to get on the NET. I wonder if it would have worked?'
Don't be 'IFFY.' Just Do It!
