Would you like to get rich writing booklets? Are you wondering what it really takes in order to do that? Here’s the scoop!
Myth #1 – The Money Myth – BUSTED!!!
Maybe you’ve heard the old saying, “It takes money to make money.” Most people believe that in order to start a business you need to have alot of money in the bank. In fact, many authors who would like to self publish, also mistakenly believe this myth.
While it’s true that some business start-ups do require thousands of dollars (such as when one goes into the franchise business), and while it’s also true that self publishing generally takes a fair amount of cash out of your pocket, booklet publishing can be done on a shoestring. With booklets, your wallet can breathe a sigh of relief!
Myth #2 – The Website Myth – BUSTED!!!
Ok. So, you don’t need alot of money. But, what about a website? Just 20 years ago this would have been unthinkable! Websites didn’t exist, yet millions of businesses flourished. How can this be?
Businesses do well for two main reasons. First, they have a product somebody wants or needs. And second, they know who those people are who want and need their products. It does no good to write a fantastic booklet if you have no idea who might read it. And, if you know who might read it but your booklet is not of value to them, they won’t be interested.
Before websites existed, businesses flaunted their products in front of consumers in a variety of ways – via television, radio, billboards, sales calls, home parties, door to door selling and wearable advertising. While most of these ideas will be out of reach for you financially and would make little sense pursuing even if you did have the budget to do it, the real take away here is the creativity and effort those businesses put forth to sell their products.
If a website is out of your budget at the moment, don’t despair. You don’t need a website to make sales. You just need a little creativity! There are many avenues to making a sale. A website is only one of them. And it’s a good idea to learn as many of those avenues as you can, even if you do decide to create a website from the start. The more ways you have of selling your booklet, the more ways you have for money to come to you!
MYTH #3 – THE OFFICE/EQUIPMENT MYTH – BUSTED!!!
How about some fancy equipment or a fancy office? Do you think you need those before you can start making some real money? Think again! Your readers won’t know or care what kind of computer you have, nor whether you wrote your booklet from a corner office with a view in Manhattan, or your kitchen table with your laundry pile sitting next to you on the floor!
A fancy office, like a fancy car, is a symbol of prestige. But, when you think about it, nobody wants to put more time in at the office. In fact, since the home computer first came on the market, more people have left their fancy office in favor of working from home than ever before in history. And, if you are working from home, even if it is from your kitchen table, there’s some guy in an office somewhere who envies YOU!
WHAT IT REALLY TAKES
Now that you know you don’t need a fancy office, special equipment, alot of money or even a website to get rich writing booklets, you’re probably wondering just what you DO need.
First, you need the determination to succeed. As corny as that might sound to you, it’s true. It doesn’t matter how big your vision is or how large you want your empire to be if you’re not willing to stay the course. So many people start a business and a year later they’ve quit. Showing up to work every day really is 99% of the game.
Second, you need to be willing to learn. Nobody knows everything there is to know about starting a business when they start. But, anyone can learn what they need to know as they go.
When Oprah started out in television, she was a news reporter. She learned as she went and started her own talk show. She learned some more, and now has her own network. It’s a process.
That’s it. If you possess the determination to succeed and you’re willing to learn as you go, you can do it. You can succeed and get rich writing booklets!
