Get Real. Get Rich.

Lottery sales are booming. (And so are alcoholic beverage sales, but that’s a whole separate issue.) And why wouldn’t they be. The economy has tanked and the ship is still sinking. Unemployment is through the roof and is still rising. People are starting to panic.

Everybody is looking for the magic pill—maybe it’s a magic bullet, actually—to make their problems go away. They want to get rich quick, kick back, relax. No pain, no worries, everything will be fine. Well, if this is what you’re looking for, there are two old adages that apply. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. (A better way to say that is if it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably a lie.) The second adage is no pain, no gain.

The fact is that nothing comes easy. There is no short cut to success—period. Hard work, dedication, and motivation are all common denominators for striking it rich. There is of course a lot more involved, but these are three prerequisites.

The bottom line is that if you want to get rich, you first need to get real.

The internet today is like California during the gold rush. Everybody wants to hit the mother lode, and everybody is staking a claim. But just like the prospector who has to sift though dirt to find a gold nugget, so too must the internet entrepreneur sift through hype to find a real opportunity.

The internet is a business tool, not a magic wand. A serious entrepreneur who wants to launch a serious business—and make serious money—can do so on the internet. But a desperate person seeking a quick fix for existing financial problems will simply create more financial problems. And lose a ton of cash in the process.

The principles of a successful business are pretty simple. Create or offer a great product or service. Find a hungry market. Get your message in front of the masses. Attract prospects and make sales. Deliver exceptional value. Get paid. Simple, yes; easy, no. Running any kind of legitimate business requires operational expertise, a financial investment—and a lot of hard work. A legitimate internet business is no different, for the most part at least.

There are however some differences, and important ones at that. Since you don’t need a storefront or an office, the capital investment is less than for a bricks-and-mortar enterprise. Commuting costs and other workplace expenses are completely eliminated. There are no occupancy costs, and payroll is typically kept to a minimum, or eliminated altogether. And since an internet business is by definition promoted on the internet, there are tremendous efficiencies in advertising expenses because you have no printing costs, and you’re not buying media or postage.

The other difference is that because of the vast reach of the internet marketplace, it is not uncommon for successful entrepreneurs to share their wisdom. Sifting through the clutter of internet scams and rip-offs, it is still possible to find proven and tested systems that literally provide a turnkey online business model. CarbonCopyPRO is one such system.

CarbonCopyPRO is a highly tested and refined training and marketing engine that eliminates countless learning curves and automates the process of filling the sales funnel. Prospects are attracted to your business, qualified and even sold by the CarbonCopyPRO team. While all of this happens in the background, the entrepreneur can focus on more important business matters, like building relationships and growing the business. It’s a turnkey blueprint for success in the form of a working business model that anyone can use.

Now, an online business might not be for everybody, especially if you have a lottery based mentality and are looking to “get rich quick.” (I suggest something like cash gifting or any of the countless money games out there. Bernie Maddoff anyone?) But if you are seriously considering venturing into the world of legitimate online business, stack the deck in your favor. Understand that you are undertaking a real business, not a part time hobby. Arm yourself with a proven and tested system of success and align yourself with a team of experienced professionals who can lead you around the pitfalls that swallow most. CarbonCopyPRO won’t make your problems go away. But it can help you to start and build your own business quickly and efficiently, and to reap the tremendous rewards that await everyone who is willing to work for them.
