Make Money Doing Nothing

Really? –

Some things just totally blow my mind. Do you know how many people are looking online for a way to make money doing nothing? Doing nothing. Really? Do these folks truly expect to find a way to do this? What in the world gives ANYONE the impression that they can make money by doing NOTHING? Ok , other than having a rich relative….lol

Do Nothing. Make Money.

Alright, I’ll be honest. Yesterday I was a bit under the weather. Actually I was just plain worn out from a very busy Super Bowl weekend. I answered some email and then took the rest of the day off. I took a nap, watched TV, and just rested because apparently, my body was calling for it.

For ME, that was a “do nothing” day and yes, I still made money. But do people realize that there had to be a whole lot of something done before I could ever look towards a day of doing nothing and making money?

That is the great thing about working online. If you take the time and do a whole lot of something, there will come a day when you can do nothing and still make money. In fact, that is your goal, isn’t it? To end up with lots of web pages and campaigns out there on the internet that work FOR you down the road?

I know it sure was MY goal. Make money fast or overnight or quick was not a pressing issue for me. Sure, I’d have liked the money to come fast, but in the long run, I wanted these things to make money for me for a long time whether *I* worked or not.

The Reality

I think one the biggest mistakes I made with One Week Marketing was to offer it to anyone and everyone. Now, I know that is how it is supposed to be done, but it’s been a little hard for me.



You see, One Week Marketing is my “baby”. It’s not some old re-hashed system… it’s MY system. It’s very personal to me and I know it works.

Am I Afraid It Will Make MY Efforts Less Effective?

Oh heck no, I’m not afraid that allowing others to see the same techniques I use will make my efforts less effective. That is so not my “problem”.

My problem is the reality. Realistic stats ( the ol’ 80/20 rule) show that only 20% will actually DO anything with the information that is right in front of them. That means, for every 100 copies of the Action Plan that go out, only 20 people will even DO anything with it.

How sad is THAT?

Oh, but wait… it gets worse.

Out of those 20 people, only 20% of THEM will actually follow thru and find success with it. That means for every 100 copies, only 4 people will see real success with it and be on their way to making money doing nothing.

Four people out of every 100.

96 copies will grow cob webs on a computer hard drive somewhere in the world.

And to be perfectly honest, the more I am around this internet marketing world, I think the 80/20 rule I am using should be more like 95/5.

This breaks my heart.

Do they decide it’s too hard? Do they realize that it takes work and follow-thru…then give up – or worse yet, never even START?

Or is it simply because the majority of folks that search online for a way to make money, want to make that money by doing NOTHING?

Yes, I am ranting a little bit today, but it’s time I ask this question out loud:

What IS it that makes anyone feel entitled to a life making money doing nothing?
