If you have no money or no idea to start a business or to become the next Facebook, here’s how you can still make a lot of money:
With only you and your computer, you can become a millionaire one day, if you want to.
I’m not kidding.
Provide a service people need.
But don’t stop there.
Provide it in such a way that can help them get the results they want.
But don’t stop there either.
While you help them get what they want, you must do it in a way that is ultra-effective. They should be able to see how your work affects their bottom line. If you can, make it happen in less time than they thought possible.
But why stop there?
Add the special sauce: make it hard to replicate.
Because: if anyone can do what you do then you won’t make a lot of money. Before you even make enough, someone else has come along to offer their services for a cheaper price.
The problem is that most people stop before they add their special sauce. They think: if I already have customers now I should be fine.
No. You will not be fine. People are not loyal to brands if they can find someone who can do it better and cheaper than the one they are buying from.
Look inside, if you have not yet added your special sauce, you will struggle. Not today, but one day.
Since you are already building something, make it good. Make it hard to replicate.
In other words, be the best. Be irreplaceable.
It grants you (without chasing too hard):
The caveat: becoming the best is not easy, or fast. This is why there are so many people stuck mediocrity. Almost the best, but not really.
This method is not new, or complicated. Given enough time, it is simple enough for most people to achieve.
