What Joe Karbo told me about netting a quick and easy 500 dollars a day
OH, Joe T., this headline scored 20% at the Advanced(?) Marketing Institute. They say this headline appeals to the intellect. OK.
Anyhow, here's what Joe Karbo DID tell me about making a quick and easy 500 dollars a day:
Joe said, "Do 500 dollar a day activities." Activities mean active. Action. Movement.
If you've never heard of Joe, he's the guy who wrote one of the greatest headlines ever and sold 10 million dollars worth of his book; The Lazy Man's Way to Riches (which scored 33.33% as a headline at AMI).
The ironic thing about our talks is, we almost never talked about marketing, mail order or making money. Boy was I Toopid...and I hate toopid people, I hate me!
Joe and I talked about boats. When I think of my boats, I'm thinking of the submarines I served on. When my brother talks about his boat, he's speaking of a 15 foot piece of aluminum that allows him to get away from the din of the day...but when Joe Karbo was talking to me about a boat...
well, he was talking YACHTS.
If you were to make 500 dollars a day, 5 days a week for the year, you'd be in the upper percentiles of American earners and have a gross income of $130,000.00
That would be a lot of bikes, drapes, aquariums, tools and other types of Chattel passing through your fingers.
Joe was telling me about an OPTION he had on a "boat" that he was planning to flip and the net profit would be about 45,000 dollars. Which would mean that Joe would have had to do 3 of those chattel deals a year to reach the magical number of "financial freedom", which is what 120k was once considered. But he was too busy earning his living to make any "chatteling" money. ;0)
ONE small jet plane bought and sold would cover the 130k for the year too, as would a lot of luxury chattel.
BUT, you've got to crawl before you toddle, and toddle before you walk and walk before you run.
And this has been the disappointing thing for me this past month or so. Giving people a realistic way to start some cash flow, to give them a chance to get out of debt, to learn HOW to do something that could give them a lifetime of freedom...and some of them are complaining they are not RUNNING to the bank yet after a week of READING The Beginner's Guide to Chatteling Course .
It is a course. And there are LESSONS to do. So do ME and yourself a favor right now. IF you aren't serious about changing your condition, or if you really are just curious, save yourself some time and MONEY (because I don't offer refunds) and don't get The Beginner's Guide to Chatteling Course. It is NOT for you.
Have you ever visited ClickBank and gone through each subject and see what is selling? And here is where HYPE wins. Because it works. Maybe you'd be better off buying one of those "make a million dollar a year products" by sitting in your Lazy Azz Boy in your underwear watching football games...
that is your choice.
But if you are serious about making 100 bux a day, 500 dollars a day, or even $1,000.00 a day or MORE...then know that Joe Karbo was spot on when he said:
"Do ____ dollar a day activities."
It is the DO part that have so many Netizens confused and dazed.
