I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Mar 26, 2015
@Andy Black why do I feel a sucker punch of enlightenment everytime I read your posts XD.I fear people will skip over this suggestion so let me elaborate.
Imagine you’ve been working in accounts payable for the past 20 years.
You get laid off and start Googling for “work from home” or “make money online”. (God help you if you do as there’s many trip-wires lying in wait.)
After a lot of research you decide to create a course on how to teach Irish dancing because you’ve been giving evening classes for the last 10 years.
Or maybe you decide to dropship, “do affiliate marketing”, start a digital marketing agency, a blog, podcast, an “Amazon business” (whatever that is), or become a life coach.
You’ve a skill that’s put food on the table and paid your mortgage for the last 20 years.
Why are you throwing all that skill and experience in the bin?
You’ll need to make sales and get customers and this may be new to you.
Newsflash... you’ll need to make sales and get customers whichever of the above options you pick.
So why not explore starting with what’s already paying your bills?
I’m taking my own medicine here. I’ve looked at other business models and have had some revenue from them. But if I lost my business this weekend then come Monday I’d do exactly what’s been bringing in the money these past few years.
