The harsh reality of crushing it

Screen shot of marketing scam
Yesterday’s screen shot of a marketing scam.


In the screen shot message above, i can tell you as a highly paid motivational speaker, you are not going to be able to do this fast. Anyone promising fast results is someone you should avoid.

Our social media outlets portray a super savvy entrepreneur who is crushing it.


Behind closed doors it’s more like we are getting crushed.

Shhh, don’t tell anyone.

Here’s the issue. Everyone is trying to follow the recipes and formulas the gurus promise will lead to your quick, amazing results.

For every successful entrepreneur who’s cut the corporate cord and is going after the “work-from-home-Internet-based-startup” business, there are hundreds, maybe more, that live in this “getting crushed”world.

What’s missing from the ¬†guru’s advice?

The truth.

And the truth is, there is no special formula. If there was, everyone would become “amazingly successful”. Quickly.
