Make Money in a WEEK? (Reality Check!)

Last Update: July 17, 2020

Bill Gates said,

Most people overestimate what they can do in 1 year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years.”

Now let's put that same into "make money online" context:

Most people overestimate what they can do in 1 WEEK and underestimate what they can do in 1 YEAR.”

What does that mean?

Let me explain...

I write this post especially to those of you who have recently started here your make money online journey.

You Need 2 Things: EFFORT + PATIENCE!

Nowadays many people are so confused because scammers are promising that you will earn a lot of money by clicking some buttons, watching videos online or other things.

(Scam Warning! Big Mark, Ryan Hildreth, Branson Tay and other similar YouTubers are simply liars. I've started revealing their dirty lies in my YouTube videos one by one to help people to warn people and show the reality of making money online. It drives me crazy that those scammers are taking advantage of innocent people who are looking for real ways to make money online.)

Recently, I recorded a video called "7 Types of People Who Are Making Money Online". I haven't yet published it but I simply tell people how people who make money online think differently.

1st Group: On the one extreme of the spectrum there are people who are simply begging for money, "Roope! Send me $100 now!"

2nd Group: Then there are people who are ready to do something but that's only like clicking buttons, watching videos, etc.

Those are groups 1 and 2.

Guess how much money those people make? $0.

7th Group: Then on the other extreme of the spectrum there are people who are super successful online. Those are people like Kyle & Carson (founders of Wealthy Affiliate), Dean Graziosi, Tony Robbins or an extreme example: Jeff Bezos.

Guess how much money these people make? A lot.

Obviously, at this point they have large teams working for them.. But there's also one interesting factor:

All ultra-successful people have worked for YEARS and often even decades in the same industry.

See the Difference Between Success & Failure?

People who are looking for VERY EASY ways to make money online and aren't willing to put in any work, will eventually make $0 or something like that.

People who are committed to learning the skills, put in the effort and become better month by month, ended up making millions and some even billions.

In which group do YOU belong to?

Are you ready to be patient if the results don't come after clicking a button?

Are you ready to make fail a couple of times UNTIL you succeed?

If you are looking for making a way to make $500 TODAY WITH A SCAM MOBILE APP, you can go to watch Big Mark, Ryan Hildret, Branson Tay and other scammers.


If you are ready to make REAL Money online once you've done the work, this is the RIGHT PLACE for you.

Numerous people have started here as complete beginners and made a life-changing income online including me.

Let's do this together! :)

PS. By the way, I have seen a guy who made money here within his first week BUT it's extremely rare and for most people, it's not possible so fast... In addition, he said he worked a lot during that week while most people aren't ready to do the work.

I went to schools for 15 years (elementary schools, high schools, college, etc...) Just imagine how much faster you can learn the skills to make money online rather than going to "normal schools"!

PPS. Now I'd love to hear from you.

What advice would you give for people who are starting out their make money online journeys?

OR do you have any questions about this? We can help you.

Hi Rooppe,

There is one group who are guaranteed to make money that you alluded to. The scammers.

They succeed because of the vast number of people in your Group 2. I think they even have a training course for those who want to learn how to scam. Some of these courses are even offered by the scammers.

Sadly I was once in Group 2. Not once but twice. I feel much more secure learning how to set up and run an online business here at Wealthy Affiliate. Even though it is not a get rich quick method, it is a get rich slow and stay stay rich when you get there.

I know what it is like to earn a 6 figure income. For the last 20 years of my professional career I averaged a 6 figure income every year and traveled the world. I was an employee but kucked out in a great profession.

Instead of retiring in style, we squandered the income by over leveraging ourselves. At the Great Recession we had to devlare bankruptcy.

We were able to recover when all the pensions kicked in. But this is only 50% of what my wife and I used to earn. That is one of the reasons why I am here.

I can hardly wait to see your article 7 Types article.

Good morning Roope,

Thank you for another excellent blog post, very thought-provoking and so very true! I can remember back in 2004 when I first started researching Internet marketing listening to people who were not sound! And yet, I was so desperate to learn how to make money online, I saw the power of the Internet and yet I didn't know what to do!

My best advice for beginners is to focus on the training at Wealthy Affiliate. You do not need any other programs to get started, just follow the training, take action at every step and try and be consistent. The more time spend working on your online business, the quicker you will start making money.

Have a great day.

Great information I came across these scams before I joined wealthy affiliate thanks to God I came across WA. I am doing things I never thought I would or could ever do which was blogging that was my fear. I overcame it and thank God I have written 5 content pages. I am still learning and step by step I will keep going.

I'm interested in hearing what are your thoughts on that video if you watched it?

The point was to illustrate the difference between UNIQUE examples and DUPLICATABLE examples.

Because people can see that someone makes tons of money online but if they don't understand the difference between UNIQUE examples and DUPLICATABLE examples they may get a false expectation.

I really dislike the YouTubers you mention here. I completely agree that they do not have any ethics at all. And hate seeing how some of the get thousands of views very easily because people fall for it. I do not understand their channels has not been shut down.

Yeah.. I believe they will get their "reward" sooner or later.
