$1,167.00 - Articles Surfing
The first thing I would like to do is share with you an email that I recently received that provided the inspiration for this article.
Hello, my name is Tanya Jameson. I met you a few months ago at the Bunny Slipper Boot Camp you spoke at in Las Vegas. I am the one that spoke to you after the Boot Camp and told you I was going to invest in your *How to Create a $5,000 Monthly Income with Ebay and Online Auctions Course* after I had a couple of yard sales.
I knew at the time, you probably didn*t believe me, but I did go to www.OnlineAuctionU.com and purchase your course. Anyway I just wanted to let you know that I have followed your course step-by-step and last month I have my first month of over $5,000.00 in profits, $5,233.70 to be exact and I am having a blast. My 5 year old daughter helps me in my business and because of your course; I never have to worry about taking a job outside the home again.
Now for my question, at the seminar you said that you personally spend over $15,000 a year on books, tapes, seminars, and other personal development courses.
My question is why?
You have a net worth of millions of dollars, you speak all over the world at seminars, and have dozens of training programs, why do you still invest so much money? I am just curious; please respond when you have an opportunity.
Thank you for helping me change my life!
Congratulations on your first $5,000 month! You now have developed the skills and knowledge to be able to write your own pay check every month with Ebay and online auctions. I am proud of you and I appreciate you taking the time to send me an email.
Now regarding your question and why I spend so much money on personal education.
My definition of success is not how much cash, or how many toys you have. To me *Success is living your life working towards worthy Goals* When I was broke, living in a small 600 foot square home and driving a beat up Chevette, I was as successful then as I am now, because I had worthy goals that I was working towards daily.
Now here is the *brain tweak* once I reached those goals, I was no longer a success. Think about that one for a minute. The only way I could maintain my success is to set new goals!
When I was financially broke, I developed the habit of spending 10% of my income on my own personal education. Jim Rohn says *Formal education will make you a living; if you become self-educated you can create a fortune*
That is one of the things I absolutely enjoy about the Internet, it is a constantly evolving marketing medium. There are always new ideas to learn and concepts and methods to test and put into practice.
Thankfully, my income got to a point, where I could no longer spend 10% on courses, books and tapes. So I was able to buy books and training programs for other people, and at one point provide the book *Think and Grow Rich* to the entire graduating class at our local high school.
However today, I am constantly learning and working towards worthy goals, and I hope you will continue to do the same.
I wish you much success, and as always let me know what I can do to support and help you. I appreciate your support, and again thanks for taking the time to send the email.
Oh yeah, before I forget, why is the title of this article $1,167.00? That is what I spent last month for personal educational and training programs. Become *self educated* and I will see you on the never ending road to success!
