Today we are going to talk about the truth behind online courses and gurus. Do they work? Are they a scam? Should you invest your money in them? I’ve been on both sides of the industry.
In the last 10 years I have made money in real estate, iPhone apps, magazines, ad revenue, marketing, online courses, and coaching. These are just some of the areas I’ve created revenue from. So, which of these have I paid for courses or coaching in over the last 10 years? The answer is all of them.
Every new skill I have developed is because I have invested in courses and mentorship to make sure I do it right. Many people think that online courses and coaching costs so much money and they don’t yield any results, but they aren’t thinking about the compound interest on education.
It usually goes like this: you enroll in one course initially. You get distracted by work, by family, and don’t see any results. The second course you see more progression, maybe you learn a new skill, make some friends to expand your network, but you still aren’t seeing the results. So, what’s next? You join a coaching program and see even more results.
Persistence is what gets you what you need. You continue to invest in yourself and every progression you make is another tap of the hammer into the stone. You start to see people in your field of interest making money and you realize there is no difference between them and you.
Everything is compounding results. That goes for everything in life, health, wealth, and relationships. Take the risk today to invest in yourself for tomorrow.
