Do Your Due Diligence
NOT TAKING THE TIME WILL COST YOU
If you don't take the time to do several of the following you're going to waste a lot of time and money. By not learning it's going to cost you more time and money. You want to do things right the first time so that you don't ever have to go back to the starting point. There is nothing wrong with starting over. In some situations and some circumstances it may be the best option. There is nothing fun about having to start over. There is nothing fun about getting stuck and not moving forward. The reason why this happens is because people have failed to learn or do several of the following:
- Failed to get the proper education
- Failed to get the proper training
- Did not confirm people are who they claim to be
You need to learn everything and there has to be a balance. The balance has to be realistic vs possible. People get so caught up with what is possible that they disregard what is likely. When reality hits regrets sets in. You need to know who you're dealing with, where they've been, how long they've been doing what they do. You need to make sure you thoroughly investigate (shop) people and make sure they first are who they say they are. And make sure that they have credible information documented outside of social media. Every sales transaction that takes place online is conducted through a website which is why you should have your own place. Regardless of what you do and how you go about creating success you should always have a place that sets you apart from everything else and so should the people you follow.
DON'T BE FOOLED BY WHAT IS POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA
People are often lazy, and they will do the easiest things they can to get your money. And when they promote something it's with the intentions of promoting easy lazy methods that attract lazy people who don't want to or refuse to learn. They all make the same excuse for not learning and doing things the right way and that is " I don't have enough time" If you don't have time to learn anything properly stay away because you can't buy shortcuts because they don't exist.
When people post or publish content make sure they are posting at least 80% of the content or better. If you need an example follow me on any social media platform with the exception of YouTube. The last thing you want to happen to you is to get taken advantage of by a lazy unethical and immoral person. Who does everything to get you in or "get your money" and then once they do they disappear. They promise you the world and that they promise they will help you but as soon as you're in you're on your own.
You are checking for consistency, you're looking for credibility. And you also want to be looking for stability. If people are promoting multiple streams of income that don't align with their primary objective that should be a red flag. There is nothing wrong with multiple streams of income. But for a new, struggling, and failing individual multiple streams of income is nonsense. Think about you and your situation if you're struggling and failing would you want to drag or drain other people they way you're being dragged and drained? Who you follow and learn from matters. That should matter to you when it comes to others.
IF YOU DON'T GET THIS RIGHT NOTHING ELSE WILL EVER BE RIGHT
If people really care about you and the people who follow or support their income. They will do or provide you and everyone a clear path. And that will point you in the right direction to keep you from wasting your time and overspending buying things you don't need or cost to much. Honest people who are worthy of your income support are those who constantly over deliver on value.
We have to face the facts. People are just not as smart as they used to be. Many people lack common sense. Too many are incapable of critically thinking for themselves. Those people are absolutely targeted. If you feel or find yourself in with the category of this type of person don't be mad, upset, or discouraged there is only 1 solution to the problems that exist and that is to listen carefully and be willing to learn. Follow very very few people. Search until you find a real authentic person who delivers. Have extremely high standards. Be picky. Don't settle for cheap, lazy, and don't settle for easy. If nothing is a challenge then you will never grow. Success comes from outside the boundaries of your comfort zone.
If people only make you feel comfortable and only say things to tickle your ears then that should be a massive red flag. They're desperate. Then you have to be careful of the slick talking snakes that know how to use words and effectively market that doesn't make them legit either. Pay attention to the frequency they broadcast with. Make sure they are not playing with your emotions. Frauds have to use the same vocabulary as legitimate professionals. The major difference is how they work and conduct business. LOOKOUT BEWARE!!!
