I got an email today… I will not share who it’s from because I think I’m talking to every baby boomer in this article.
This Boomer is struggling to find a way to make an income online – like a lot of you are… and this is my answer:
(my email reply almost word for word)
So you and I are about the same age… and no one hires “old” people…
You really have 2 different things to think (worry) about. I’ll explain in a bit.
I can feel your frustration and I don’t want you to give up.
I think you are looking for the magic “pill” or easy button to make money “fast”.
When you are in this situation… you can (and will) make mistakes and spend a bunch of wasted time looking for answers. (and money you can’t afford to spend)
First you need to generate immediate income and then worry about long-term residual income.
You might want me to give you “all” the answers in one email – but that’s not how it works. You (with my help) need to work through a few baby steps.
The reason for the baby steps – is this:
You already have some notions and some misinformation that is driving you in a certain direction (or a variety of directions), the baby steps help me to help you gain clarity and focus.
Some will get “it” and some won’t. I don’t take offense – I just move on and help those willing to listen and learn.
First Baby Step -
The immediate income will Not come from “selling” stuff online. It should come from you offering a service.
This service is something (we can explore the options) that others will pay you for your time and/or efforts.
Now… go read and watch the video on this blog post:
Let me know if you want to chat further…
This is not New information. This is not a New idea. In fact I wish someone had sent me this email years ago when I was struggling to find my way online.
It was Tiffany Dow who slapped me on the back of the head with this one. It’s so simple – and yet I couldn’t see the simple truth.
Tiff and I are on the very same page with this “Idea” – “Anyone new to online business and needs to generate income NOW – the first step is to provide a service”.
End of story,
