So you’ve been pitched on the best thing since sliced (humble) pie…
They made a compelling offer and you bit.
“This is unreal!” they exclaimed. “Get set up and you’ll be making 10K a month working 4 hours a week!”
Not so fast Jackson…
I’m sure most of you have heard (or even read) ‘The 4-Hour Work Week’ by Tim Ferris. Ferris outlines a plan for streamlining your work processes so you put in less hours and have more time to enjoy your life.
No, I’m not going to criticize Tim’s book. What I am going to criticize is most people’s interpretation OF IT.
Too many people get this notion that they can start a business (home, online…doesn’t really matter) and right off the bat knock out a half hour a day in their ‘business’. Then they gripe and bitch why the ‘Bennies aren’t caressing their backside like a stripper at a blacklight convention.
This is because they’ve failed miserably at realizing they will have to bust their bahama establishing that ‘greatest thing since sliced fruitcake that takes very little work’ thingy.
Also, so many ‘prepare’ for their ‘lifestyle business’ that they forget to just start doing it…
…and herein lies the brutal truth:
Sometimes you’re just going to have to put in long hours until you get more efficient and set yourself up for the future, where you can THEN work less.
I can hear it now…
Did Kenster just say ‘long hours’? Isn’t that a no-no for ‘get rich quick’ businesses? You can’t ever ADMIT that….right??
There is no ‘get rich quick’, ‘3 hours a week’ …and deep down you KNOW that, don’t you?
Second, you also know deep down that any significant endeavor takes hard work and commitment. But NO, people are afraid to say the ‘w’ word because they think they’ll scare clients off.
No, what you’ll scare off is the WRONG kind of clients. And that’s EXACTLY what you want.
Is it possible to have a ‘lifestyle business’ where you work less hours than the typical biz?
Absolutely. I, and many others I know are living proof.
Butt, it takes commitment to get there.
I tell potential clients all the time, ‘if you want to work 2-3 hours a week and think that will build your business then do NOT waste your time’.
That’s a flipping pipe dream.
You know what I DO tell them? ‘2 hours a day consistently…MIN E MUMM!!!’ THAT will bring you progress.
Anyone who claims otherwise is selling you corndogs at a Vegan festival.

Who doesn't pal? If you have a rich Uncle, you're good to go. If not, then you better get real and realize that latest 'opportunity' on that Facebook group where you can make 300 bucks over and over for doing nothing is complete bullshit. ARE YOU READY TO GET REAL?? >> >> >> >>
