The Secret to Making Money Online in 2017

THE SECRECT TO MAKING MONEY ONLINE IN 2017

Making money online is fucking hard. That’s a really good word for it. I’m going to tell you how it really is. I know I was supposed to give you some simple, quick, easy motivational message about what it takes to make money online. There’s been a lot of confusion. There’s been a lot of people who are somewhat really troubled. I do apologize. I don’t have any of that stuff.

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

If you are really, really interested in making money online, I want you to listen to me. I want you to pay attention because I am going to tell you exactly what you need to do. Work. Work some more. Work tonight. Work tomorrow. Work this weekend. Work next weekend. Work this summer. Work Christmas.

You need to work. One of the things that is really frustrating for me is that I have stuff I can give you, but it’s got to go through this bullshit filter that is so thick. I’ll tell you that you have to work and perhaps you will work for a while and not make any money. When this happens, you’ll think I’m deceiving you. People think they’ll make a lot of money fast and when it doesn’t happen like that – there’s something wrong.

What’s really wrong is your perspective. You can make money online. You can make a lot of money online. But more than likely, before you start making money, you will fail. You will lose money. You will make mistakes. You will drive yourself crazy.

I’ve been making money online since 2000 through various sources like EBay and Amazon. At one point, I was doing a little Etsy.

Making money is not some magical super fraternity where you know a secret handshake and a code where you press a button on the wall. No. It’s not like that.

What you have to do is find something that you like enough to deal with the bullshit that’s going to come with making money online.

I like writing. I fucking hate editing.

I now like making YouTube videos. I used to fucking hate making YouTube videos. There’s so many things that you have to go through to be successful long-term.

Writing a book is fucking hard. You can put a lot of time and effort in it and also spend a lot of money for a great cover, and the shit will not sell.

Then you can wake up one morning and write some shit just for fun, some wild ass shit and throw it on Kindle and it sells like hotcakes. You’ll wonder, how the fuck did that happen. Because it happened to me.

A book that I worked on one day took off under a pen name. It was in the right genre. I’ll give you a secret here. Write your book in a genre where there are a lot of readers already. You can build a genre. It’s hard. That goes back to the work.

You can build a business. You can build a website. I had a guy on here in the Bad Ass Hustlers component and he built a business in a weekend that got to a point where he quit his job in six weeks after building that business.

However, the backstory is very important. He had built businesses before. How many times do I need to tell you this. You need to get started with something.

Now, let’s just cut to the chase of making money online.

#1 – You have to stick with it at least for a year or two. Before we get to that, you have to validate and test to see if your concept will make some money. I’m not saying stick with something for a year or two when nobody’s buying it after a month or two. No. That marketplace is telling you there’s something really wrong with your product or with what you’re doing.

But, you have to stick with it.

Now, let’s talk about how much money you can realistically make online as an inexperienced person. You’ve never been online before. You don’t know what you’re doing. You’ve never built a website. You aren’t interested in building a website. I’m going to say probably $10,000 or $20,000 your first year minus costs. You might be at $5K profit.

Now, let’s crank it up. Say you have web experience. If you’ve been doing EBay or Amazon, you are only marginally better than somebody who has been doing nothing online. In fact, the person who is stupid is maybe 90% ahead of where you are. Granted, you know how to work a system.

When you can sell your products and services from your website or some web asset you control enough to make a living consistently year after year, then you actually know what you are doing.

One of the reasons I believe I was able to be successful fairly quickly is I have fucked up quite bit. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. When you make a mistake, you have to ask yourself this question. Is this fuckup detrimental.

The way the world works today is you can build a company that loses money and still make money. I will tell you I did this the first year. I wasn’t really making any money with the YouTube Channel. I wasn’t making any money with the blog. That first year I made $62K and most of it came in the last three or four months.

I went to Lowe’s. I went to Walmart and to Home Depot and applied for a job. They didn’t even call me back. I was looking for a $10 per hour part-time job just to put a little extra change in my pocket.

So, I started working 24 hours a day, literally to make money online.

When you want to make money online, the first thing you need is a concept. The second thing you have to have is some tenacity. The third thing you have to have is a will to win. Tenacity is just sticking with it.

When you can look up when things are going sideways and say, “I’m still doing this,” that’s when you know you are an entrepreneur. If you keep on going, sooner or later you will make money online.

Can I tell you how much? Nope. I can’t. I can tell you, you will win.

To build a business that supports you in a year or two is not a long time.

If you try to live the dream and chase the dream at the same time, it seems like a really, rough, rough timeframe.

How to Make Money Starting a YouTube Channel in 2017

How to Make Money Starting a YouTube Channel in 2017

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

When I started on YouTube in 2009, it wasn’t open for everyone to make money from AdSense. I’ve been making money here on YouTube since 2009, because I sell products and services.

Life is funny. When I started my YouTube channel, I didn’t foresee any of the things happening that happened.

This is how I got started. I didn’t have a great camera. I just sat down and I started making videos. It was a little strange, sitting there talking to yourself, by yourself in front of the computer.

My first video was August 6, 2009. It was Hustling Ain’t for Sissies. As I went on I made a lot of videos, a ton of videos. I made so many videos that I became comfortable with the process. It didn’t happen overnight. It was something that took time. I was a storage auction guy for real before the TV shows came on, before all of the hype. That’s something I did for over a decade of my life.

Storage units make money. You buy a unit for $1 or $10 and make $1000. It’s a great way to really maximize your profit.

Another thing that I did was I made a lot of videos. At one point, I was making five videos per day. I just kept cranking them out because the more videos I made, the more traffic I got to my blog. It was amazing. The more traffic I got, the more books I sold. So, over time, my YouTube thing changed quite a bit. I never thought that this channel would have a life of its own.

In the beginning, I hated making videos. In 2009 and 210, I absolutely hated making videos. But there are 1250 videos on this channel now. At some point, the hate became determination. It became fun. It’s fun to make videos now. It’s fun to meet people and interact with them in the comments.

I didn’t see that coming. It was really a huge shock for me because I’m an introvert. I like to be myself and I like to work in private.

I’ve gotten all kind of incredible opportunities because of this YouTube channel. It all started with that horrible first video. It was just terrible.

You can’t begin something without beginning at some place. That was my deal.

So, the cliff notes version of my start in YouTube in 2009 is I uploaded videos. Then, I found out they brought an incredible amount of traffic to my blog which was called Urban Packrat. Don’t look for it. It doesn’t exist anymore.

I would get 10 to 20 hits a day. I started putting up the stories…. The storage auction stories, the Craigslist stories. Then I started getting 200 to 30 hits a day on the blog.

There’s been a great deal of experimentation. There’ s been so much change with the channel. There have been changes in direction, changes in the logo. I really feel like I am just getting started.

So, in 2009, I put videos up. I didn’t know anything about it. The audio was crappy. You see black bars on the side. It was just horrible.

But, like I said, we all have to begin somewhere. Then in 2010, things got a little better. I started to learn some stuff. I started to learn some stuff. I started to make better content. Then, in 2011, that’s the year things just took off.  

In 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, it dawned on me I wasn’t buying storage units anymore. The channel was all about that topic, so I started turning the ship. This rubbed some people the wrong way. They said… “Screw you, we’re leaving.”

So, a word of advice for you is if you start a channel and it gets some traction, you can’t change what you’re talking about without losing the first people who came. It happened to me.

Then in 2013 and 2014 I came up with mindset I’ve had for a long time. I named it the Hustler Mindset Project. I started focusing on that, creating classes and courses. Some of the courses were really good. Most of them weren’t. People told me, “We don’t want them.” That was another learning lesson.

My YouTube channel is really different because it has always been based on selling stuff. I’ve never been overly dependent on AdSense because you have to have a tremendous amount of views or a crazy conversion rate to really rock out on AdSense.

The channel has been about selling stuff since 2009 and I’ve become pretty good at it, which wasn’t really easy. In the beginning, I was so excited for the 100 or 200 views because I was also getting 10 or 20 views on my blog. I was extremely excited and became very determined because I liked the results.

Understand, I didn’t like making videos. That didn’t come until almost my third year. It was really cool that I was able to just whip out a shitty camera, start making videos, start making money online with no experience just because I tried something different and new.

That’s what’s really exciting about YouTube. People are talking about Facebook video and other competitors. I don’t really see anyone being a real threat to YouTube at the moment.

There are many people who asked me questions, like is YouTube still good? My translation of this question is, how hard do I have to work? The answer is: Yes, you do. That’s the thing. I’ve watched many people over the years who started off just like I did with 0 views. It takes time.

One of the reasons I’m really excited is because it seems like the 5th or 6th year is when people really take off.

So, if you want to do YouTube, here are some tips. Pick something that you really like or you can appreciate or learn to like.

Always be yourself. That’s one of the benefits of having a channel. You can be doing what you like all day long and you can make money.

Now, how do you make money on YouTube? Many people throw out the answer AdSense. I think that’s the least efficient way to make money. I have monetized videos. But, once again, I have 1250 videos. There’s only 200 videos that make money. The rest of them make no money.

In my opinion, the best way to make money with YouTube is to use it as a lead generation tool. Hands down, YouTube is the best lead generation tool I’ve seen in my life.

What I’m saying is you have to get started. Play around with it. Have fun.

Another way to start it is to start more than one channel at a time. Start three channels at once. I’ve got five channels.

If you really want to start a channel and you have no clue, I’m going to say you should stay in your backyard. You don’t know what’s really going to work until you really start doing it.

How to Start a Business with No Experience and No Money

how to start a business

How to Start a Business with No Experience and No Money

You want to start a business, but you have no experience. Nothing. No experience, no money. Nothing. How do you do that?

I’ll break that down in this video. You can start a business with no experience. You really can.

 

How to start a business with no experience?

First of all, you’ve got to get started. You have to understand that it’s okay to be you. I’m not saying that in a condescending way. In my course, Local Hustlers – the thing is, it’s okay to struggle.

I had a young lady who commented on the video. She said… “I’m angry.”

There were so many things she didn’t get. Essentially, she’s at that point where her eyes are being opened. She’s where she should be.

The matrix that people will say for you to do is in order to start a business you must have business cards. You must incorporate. You must rent business space.

Right now, I’m in my underwear. I’m not getting up to show you. I started a business so I want you to listen to me. I started a YouTube business that allows me to do that.

So, when I say this. This is not BS. I know it can be done. The reality is you can start right now with no experience and if you work your ass off and you do this for 12 – 24 months, you could possibly have a business. I will make you this guarantee. If you don’t have an IQ of 75, within 12 to 24 months, you can have a business that will support you and your family.

I remember this conversation I had with a fool. Many people are caught up in the façade of a business. I’ve got this nice office space. I’ve got these nice cards. This is the new economy. You don’t have to do things the way your father and grandfather did. Get up. Get started. Do something now.

At the end of the day, you could have the framework of a business. Now, are you incorporated? No. I don’t recommend you do this until you validate your business idea.

What’s validating? Finding out if your concept will get strangers to pay money for it.

How to Start A Business Rule One: Get started!

How To Start A Business Rule Two: Forget about the people in your life who have not started a business and can’t offer you valid, time-tested advice.

When I started my first business that was doing well, I got some bullshit from my mother and I completely ignored it. She filed bankruptcy three times. She doesn’t know shit about money. She never started a business.

What people confuse is age with wisdom. There’s a lot of 60, 70, and 80-year-old fools out there. It is 2017. We don’t do it like that anymore.

A lot of people romanticize the good part of history and ignore the bad part.

How To Start  A Business Rule Three: You have got to become a metric monster. You’ve got to dig in the data.

Many people do not want you to win.

They may say they want you to win. They may act like they’re in your corner. They will become your Brutus, because your winning means they did not participate in the game. Brutus thought he was smarter than you. You’re going to experience success and when Brutus comes along, you’ll be ready.

Rule Number 4: You’ve got to be grateful for the little stuff.

I’m happy for the fools who subscribe to this channel and immediately give me a dislike. Thank you. You just got me a view. You’re just giving me a bigger view count.

During the beginning, when you’re out there talking to people about sales and they say they want to buy, but make excuses about having to pay the light bill or whatever, don’t get upset. Practice gratitude. Practice appreciation. You practice these two things and money will jump in your wallet.

Now let’s get down to the technical parts. At what point do you incorporate? When you’ve earned enough money to pay for the incorporation and money is still coming in. Remember, I believe in incorporating business structures. You’re going to have to do some research. Everybody has a different situation.

To build, you’re going to have to go back to being a metric monster.

Another way for you to start a business without experience is to work for free.

If you don’t have what the world needs at that time – the world has no use for you.

When it comes down to serving people and making money, you earn what you deserve.

Humanity operates from a Quid Pro Quo philosophy. It’s either some money. It’s either emotional benefit. There’s got to be some emotional benefit or people aren’t interested. They’re just not.

So, retrain your brain. Because, yes, you can start this business with no experience. But there’s going to be stages. First, you go through 1, 2, 3, 4, and then stage 5.

Stage five is to realize you’re the owner. Many people own businesses and act like employees, and wonder why their people don’t respect them. When you get to a certain level, you own that shit. You’re the person on the white horse. When you accept that responsibility, you’ll make more money.

What I don’t like about our society today is the thing with the trophies. There are no participation trophies in business. There are none. You fucking win or you fucking lose. So, if you bring that participation mindset into the business and you’re getting your ass kicked, it’s because you never learned to struggle.

There’s this wonderful book by Paul Tugh, How Children Succeed. It’s good advice for adults too. It’s a colorful book with pencils on the cover. The gist of the book is that many kids are spared the process of struggle. It shows up when they are adults.

There’s so much opportunity now, it’s sick. When people say…”I’m waiting for the right time,” you’re waiting because you are afraid.

Every time I put some shit out, I have a lot of losers. It happens. I fail more than I win, which leads me to Rule Number 6. If you fail a lot, you’re going to have to create massive action. I fail a lot. I fail 75% of the time. So, if I do 10 action points, I’m going to win 2.5. So, what do I do with that information? I create 40 action points. I still have a 25% success rate.

I paused because I just gave you the magic jelly beans.

So, if you want to start a business with no experience, you’ve got to work your ass off. People have so many options, they don’t know what to do.

You’ve got to figure out what your thing is. The best way to figure out what your thing is, is to fuck up a lot.

My thing isn’t money. My thing is freedom. That is my crack. I can do what I want on most days.

You can build your life. It’s a matter of courage.

Your deficiencies are going to take up most of your time. I believe in shoring up your deficiencies.

You struggle for your success. If you really want to start a business with no experience, it’s something you can do.
