Gotta Have A Brain For Money, Milk and Honey!



I've decided that today I'll just focus on writing this article without including aspects of my personal life. That Hive deal for both of us is set on stand-by for now.

Here we go now!

Despite what you might hear on the news, the typical American millionaire, according to the book “The Millionaire Next Door” (a full shitbook with limiting ideas), is a 57-year-old in a business that would be considered as…

normal... even dull


source turns out that most of them are “welding contractors, auctioneers, rice farmers, owners of mobile-home parks, pest controllers, coin and stamp dealers, and paving contractors”. source book is here or on Amazon

From what I’ve been able to observe, it’s true online, too.

The average marketer who does really well for themselves... isn’t necessarily this big guru who you see all over the place. In fact, I have it on good authority that...

😄 most of these shinny gurus are broke.

Just another broke guy that can-guru himself!


💡So who, then, does well?

Just like people who are successful offline… most of the time, online successes do stuff that most wide-eyed, bushy-tailed marketing rookies would consider boring.

Online successes execute the same fundamentals over and over again. While other people chase one shiny object after the next, the successes remain low-key, executing the same needle-moving stuff every single day without fail.

At this point, you’re probably thinking… “Enough already with the sermon - just tell me what do I need to do already!”

And I'll gladly take anything for making things longer. But, let me ask you this: Did you liked the can-guru?


Let’s start with some examples.

There are marketers who have seen insane success just helping brands sell on Amazon. But that does not work so that it gets them any recognition or lands a pile of money in their lap right away. Their focus is on making the pile bigger for everybody, and when they do it, they win and their customers win.

As a result, their passive income stream grows.

Look at Harold, he could be another Amazon Marketer with no future, just some temporary joy

Yet they still remain unknown, they have no following, or whatever it is the gurus brag about nowadays.

There are other marketers who focus on affiliate marketing, like me in my early days...2007-now, and my youngest brother is also into itit. I’m still working to be at the level I want to be, however, the success I’ve had so far can be attributed to me simply executing a handful of steps that move the needle in my business. Nothing fancy.

Or, take people whose focus is traffic.

I just couldn't help sharing this, here's the source

This is probably the most interesting example, by the way. You’d think that people who are in the limelight with huge followings are able to drive a lot of traffic.

Maybe yes, maybe no. It depends on the following. More importantly, is their following buying anything?
Thing is, more often than not, most sales are driven by people who are relatively unknown, yet possess a loyal and dedicated audience.
I could go on and on, but you’re starting to see the pattern, right?

The bottom line is this.

Simple fundamental steps that everyone else finds too boring, repeated often enough, will get you to succeed faster and with more certainty than trying to be internet famous and chasing shiny objects.

You’ll be successful… yet, most people won’t think you are. Which can be a blessing in itself.

I hope you enjoy this.
