I just discovered the secret to making a TON of money THIS MONTH working as a freelancer!
But first, I’ll tell you what I see over and over again. Someone creates a website explaining how they didn’t make a lot of money before they became a freelancer. And then the individual goes on to explain a bit about what they’re doing, how much they’re making, etc. And then they suck readers in for a membership site for their ebook or their entrepreneur program or whatever else so you, too, can make six figures selling some stupid program.
There are some entrepreneurs online, granted, who are giving legitimate information and releasing informative content. I’m not talking about those. I’m talking about the ones who have nothing new to say, but because they have a fancy website or a lot of social proof, they make bank. I guess that’s part of the game, but still…meh.
(Social proof – that idea that because everyone else loves something, it must be good.)
The real secret to making thousands of dollars as a freelance whatever? Hard work. Luck. An eye for profitability and viability of an idea. A good social network. More hard work. Sweat. A pretty face. Divine intervention. Blah blah blah. See, there will always be sales shills out there telling you that you have to buy some program to make big bucks. It’s not new.
What courses/forums/ebooks have you found helpful? Which ones were unworthy of your time?
