I won’t get any kudos from those obsessed by Keyword and SEO marketing strategies for that Blog title I’m guessing!
Back in the 80’s a pop band called the Smiths had one very memorable verse that went something like this: ‘Why do I give valuable time to people who don’t care if I live or die?’
The reason for that rather cryptic introduction is the recent realization that an incredible amount of missed opportunities in life are as a result in us caring too much about the opinions of complete strangers. Sounds ludicrous?
Let me elaborate. I really dislike most forums where dozens of people get to post polarizing and vitriolic opinions often based on nothing more than uninformed bias. I’m a big fan of many sports, especially EPL. I do not however spend anytime on EPL forum sites. It seems pointless and energy sapping to become engaged in puerile dialogue extolling the relative greatness of my team compared to someone else’s.
Those involved in Internet Marketing may well be confronted with the same thing. Your business opportunity may have helped a million people retire from their 9 – 5 jobs and live the life of a celebrity, yet I guarantee there’ll be a bunch of ‘turkeys’ rabidly denouncing not only the business but also anyone associated with it.
The biggest mistake you can make is investing time and energy feeding the appetite of these dream suppressors. They live to bait you. That doesn’t mean that informed debate is anything but positive-but once the dialogue descends into toxic and acrimonious banter, you can be sure there will be no winners.
This is an unusually downbeat Blog for me, but it is nevertheless something that I feel is important to share.
Businesses do come and go. Some will fullfill your every expectation and most won’t. However it’s the relationships that you nurture along the way that are enduring.
So here’s my long-winded message. Instead of spending months and years trying to find the perfect business and creating debate on every known web forum, write down what you’d like your business venture to give you. Work out your budget. Decide how much time you can invest into it and then hook up with someone that you can relate to, take some first steps and progress is assured
