I woke up each morning in October and November of 2006 and saw something between $400 and $600 dollars had been deposited into my bank account.
True story, years ago... I worked with a neighbor, Toni, who had been selling e-books online.
It started as a simple e-book on how to repair your own credit score.
Toni had previously purchased 3 or 4 e-books on credit repair for her own personal needs, and tried them out. Some of it worked, and some of it didn't, and so Toni began to see the need to update and correct the information in these e-books.
She added in her own personal online research, experiences and successes (failures, too!) in order to update and simplify the credit repair process. She developed a better, more accurate e-book than she had ever bought.
When she showed it to me, I was quite convinced Toni was not only a self-made EXPERTon credit repair, but she had developed the BEST e-book on how to repair your own credit.
(So fantastic- I must add -that I myself dramatically increased my own credit scores with all three bureaus!)
So why did I join WA?
Very simple. We were making $400 to $600 dollars a day selling her one product online. We sold it for 39. 99 with a 100% money back guarantee because we were ONLY trying to help people.
It didn't help, you didn't pay. Or got a refund... no questions!
You see, Toni and I marketed her e-book for about three months before we got distracted. We primarily used paid-for email lists. We were paying for the lists, the can-spam-compliant removal process (lol - anyone remember 2006?), we were even so naïve we paid "server time"... the list goes on.
For 2006 I guess that our overhead, averaged out, wasn't super bad.. it was about $75 per day. Fantastic for a business bringing in 4-6 hundred a night, even when you divide by 2.
Shorten the story, bring it up to 2016?
Sure, I can do that. I'm not a millionaire now because Toni and I brought in a third partner back in 2006 who was meant to expand our business. Remember above where I said we got "distracted"?
Stealing $13,000 dollars is not really helpful when looking to expand a business. That's what this third partner did. He was much less of an expert and he was much more of a thief. I lost a lot more than money on that little adventure, I lost a lot of faith....
However, after 10 years of working for "the man" and knowing I almost made it years ago, there are 2 things I simply cannot avoid knowing:
1) I really enjoyed online being able to provide a useful, tangible product for people who needed it.
2) I need more experts. I need more Toni's, people I can trust.
This realization is why tomorrow, October 23rd, I'll pay for premium and jump on in. After all, this is hour 10 so I'm right on track.
Thanks for reading this far, I hope someday, in some way, you can be my Expert.
In return, I hope that some skill, some talent, some suggestion I might have to offer, will help you to be even more successful than you already are!
Let's help each other be great!
