A man, a plan, a canal, Panama! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Wang Zen   
Wednesday, 25 July 2007

So, I've been working my plan. I have a list of all the discussion boards and ad placement areas on the web. I place my daily blurb on all of them, twice a day, morning and evening. This seems to net me one signup a day. My plan is to continue this for a year. That, in my mind, is my job. At the end of it I hope to have over 300 people signed up under my affiliate program CashCrate. I estimate that 100 will actively make $20 per month, or $2,000. I've seen people's scanned checks, and the jumping off point seems to be $400/month. Once that threshold is reached the following month seems to be twice that amount. Something triggers the growth, so even though my plan is to work this for a year, it may come sooner.

 It seems the longer I do this the more ideas and possibilities for promotion present themselves. I used to shuck shrimp in Alaska. I would stand for hours with shrimp rolling passed me on a moving line from my right to my left. My job was to remove the shells that the machine didn't remove and dump them into a hole. I did this for 16 hrs. a day for 6 months. The thing I heard was that this job did not require brains, or creativity or brute strength. It required endurance and persistence. This will probably get me hate mail, but frankly I believe the ability to make money sometimes takes creativity(Apple) or brains(Microsoft) or brute strength(Arnold Swarzenegger), but many times it simply takes the willingness to persist in the face of frustration and the daily grind, endurance in the face of lack of results and possibly failure. Yes, you have to have a plan for success, but then you have to work it. The Panama Canal was built starting in 1881 and finally completed in 1914. 33 years. It's a marvel of the world and makes commerce easier. How long will it take for you to get to $100/month? $1,000/month? More?

Here are the sayings:

It takes one step to start a journey of 1,000 miles.

How do you eat an elephant? Answer: One bite at a time.

From the Chinese: Can you eat bitter? (or How much can You withstand?).

Persist, endure, succeed.
