Yeah, sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
* You do the work once = you get paid once
* You don’t do the work = you don’t get paid
The problem was… well… I had to work in order to get paid. If I was on vacation and someone else cut the grass for me, they got paid (I didn’t). Or if it rained and the cut had to be postponed for a few days… well… so did my pay.
But what if I could cut the grass once… and get paid every time some else cut the grass?
Think about what would happen if I had to write the book again in order to get paid again? Yeah… it wouldn’t happen, right?
Here’s the deal- working a home-based business empowers you to tap into the magic of residential / royalty income. Now, technically, you can’t do the work “one time” and simply walk away from it forever…
… if I did that with the book… and never promoted it again… the sales would dry up. So, though the hard work is done, I continue throwing gas on that fire each month.
You’ll want to do the same thing with your business. You’ll want to invest time on the front end to “write the book” (or “build the fire”). Then, you’ll want to continue stoking that fire, consistently, to keep it burning bright…
A lot of people- let’s be honest- don’t get that. They don’t want to do the work it takes to build the fire on the front end. The truth is that in a home-based business (or ANY residual income opportunity) you have to work MORE on the front end than what you’re getting paid for…
When I wrote the book, I consistently put words on paper for four months WITHOUT a check. No bad, though, to continue getting paid OVER FOUR YEARS later… with no end in sight.
Anyway, a lot of people quit in the early days when they’re pursuing a residual opportunity for two reasons…
First, they’re not getting paid “what they’re worth” in the beginning.
Second, they don’t understand the power of residential income.
You see, the reality is that in the beginning you’ll get paid less than what you could make “by the hour.” The tendency might be to pack your bags and go back to the typical way of trading hours for dollars. It’s more lucrative in the beginning.
However, if you’ll stick with it, the “hours to income” ratio flips. In time, you find yourself getting paid FOR MORE “per hour” than you can possibly imagine.
Why? Because every time somebody makes a purchase, you get paid.
When you’re on… you get paid.
When you’re off… you get paid.
When you’re on vacation… you get paid.
When someone on your team performs… you get paid.
That’s the power of residual income.
