Have an idea on how to make money? Perhaps you figured out a target market to focus in on. You get that idea down and just as you do, another idea comes to mind. You write that one down and then another and another one, right after the other, come to mind. Then you listen to a guru on a particular subject who encourages you to do it their way so you grab on to that one as well. Pretty soon you have an entire wall of post-it note ideas that have stopped short of their goal: to make you some money!
“When all is said and done, nothing said was ever done”
Do not fall into the trap of spending so much time creating new ways to make money, that you don’t have time to make money. Come up with a plan and move it through to fruition or failure – one of the two. If it just sits there – it’s just an idea. An idea must have energy behind it to move it forward.
When we started ORCVirtual, Inc. in 2007, we tried getting our name out there in a multitude of markets from real estate to non-profit to educational to law firms – you name them, we wanted to be their client. It is only when we decided to narrow down our vision so that we could actually see one or two targets that we were actually able to hit our target right on the mark!
I work with people who are stuck in this cycle of finding lots of ways to make money and yet they never make a dime.
