Business Experiment No. 1
Learning means nothing with out action, so here is the first goal for you;
Make $1.00 by selling something to someone else.
It could be anything, and it needs to be to anyone you don't currently know, but you need but make a deal. Sounds easy, but can you really do it, make that first dollar? That $1.00 can be the start of a business that can change your life. Do you have what it takes?
Stop everything, stop reading this, and go do it.
This will prove an important point to you, and it is what I think is the most important point that you can learn about business:
That you can make money and you can do it now. No one else has do to it for you, you can make your future.
The first dollar is the hardest, but once you get it, you understand that it can be done, that you don't have to work for someone if you don't want to, that businesses are created by people just like you. You make that dollar, you sell something, you have your first email for your customer list, your mailing list, and you meet someone new, which means you have widened your network.
See on eBay, sell on flippa.com, sell at a garage sale, sell on the street, online, make a cold call, it doesn't matter.
For me it was ebay, I started selling used books and some jewelry, and I quickly learned that I coiuld sell, and it started me learning all I can.
Let me know how you do. I would like to know.
Any questions let me know.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
