One thing you’ll possibly notice that’s different about this site from the ones you may be used to is the fact that I share with you precisely what I’m doing that’s making money online.  There may be others out there writing some similar things, but I’m racking my brain trying to think of any I’ve seen that are showing you what I’m going to show you.

If you know of any, by all means come and share them with me if you like in the Comments sections of my posts.

I won’t lie, part of my motivation for demonstrating these things is that I want to have greater levels of success myself and if I can enlist you in my teams, certainly, I benefit, not only financially, but through your friendship and wisdom too.

But the other motivation is the fact that I know your frustration.  I’ve experienced it in spades!

Don’t you just hate it when you run down one of the many marketing bunny trails and some guru tells you to just do this and then such and such will happen and in the morning you’ll be a millionaire?

First, you weren’t all that interested in being a millionaire right now.  You just wanted to make enough money to keep the lights on.  Millionaire status can come later.

Second, the guru apparently assumes you KNOW something about HOW to “just do this,” and since he’s presumably already made his gazillions, he just blathers on for another long time about how when you do it too, you too can be a member of the club.

The way I see it, we need fewer “knowers” in this industry and more  – and better – teachers!  When your audience is someone like…well, me…you CAN.  NOT.  ASSUME.  ANY.  THING.  I want to be told when to inhale and then when to exhale.  Step.  By.  Step.  Literally.  Do this.  Now do this.  Here’s why.

I’ve been told that I am a good teacher.  I love teaching and I really like the “dialogue” style of teaching where the teacher says some things and then the student gets to say some things too.  Nicely, of course.

Yes, that’s a hint!

If you read something here that sounds like I’m trying to teach something, please, please, please jump in!  Comment.  Question.  Let’s have a conversation.  That way I’ll know whether I’m really getting down to the practical stuff for you or not.

That said, as you see in my logo up at the top, I’m all about Network Marketing and Lead Generation.  Let me be quick here to not be guilty of doing what I just mentioned:  Assuming you know something about those, or even what they are.

So in my next post I’ll work on defining those terms and why I think they’re so powerful for those of us aiming at making money online!

Before I go, you may also notice that on my front page, THE BOW, and right here on my blog page, THE COCKPIT, you don’t see anything at all for sale.  That is by design.  Certainly, along the way, there will be classy ways for you to help support my family, but they’ll usually be stored deep in THE HOLD.

I truly want this site to be about edutainment, instruction, dialogue and relationship-building.  I want to get to know you.  I want, over time, to earn your trust and offer real value, primarily through good writing.  That’s why I told my designer, Brian Lis:  I want this to be a “writer’s” site.  No distractions.

I don’t know about you, but I think he pulled it off!  Thanks so much, Brian, for your good work and for your patience.

Thanks for reading!

And remember: Tenacity Trumps Talent!
