Greetings from Mark Hoverson,
So this morning, after some cuddling
and coffee, I walk into my laboratory…
*sidenote: I hate the word “office”,
it reminds me of:
#1- uncomfortably-dressed people
#2- who scarf down cigarettes at breaks
#3- who have to play office politics
#4- who can’t wait to leave
Anyway, so I walk into my home studio
and look at my laptop, and literally
feel a rush/buzz/sensation that I’ve
felt a thousand times before.
This secret buzz has been foundational
to my unusual business results (at this
point, my marketing stuff has been beckoned
from Hollywood, Political Campaigns, Government
School Programs on Self Image, and of course
my favorite: the start-from-scratch entrepreneur).
But it all started from a $250 used computer.
And truth be told, that $250 used computer was an
upgrade. I really started my online biz from the
public library. They only allowed me to use their
computer twice per day for 45-minutes at a time.
I started sending emails and placing ads from a
public library because I could afford my own computer.
So despite all the success training that says that
you’ve GOT to surround yourself with amazing people
to have your breakthrough, I started my business
around people who have to use the public library computers.
A very motivated and trend-setting group. ; )
Okay, back to my mind trick that causes a secret
buzz that fueled me from the start, and still fuels me
This one little word is USUALLY the killer in people’s life.
But, if you use it correctly, it will become the GIVER of inspiration.
Ready? Here we go:
That word is: COMPARING.
I built my emotional and inspirational framework entirely
on comparing what I was doing verses alternatives. And
it kept me in the game long enough to get my breakthrough.
Let me explain:
Out in Dakota where I grew up, a farmer has to buy a
combine. I’m not sure how much a combine actually
costs (maybe $150-250K+).
And then they have to buy a bunch of seed, and grind
through a summer of nurturing them, and then work real
hard harvesting them. After which, they are paid. BTW- I
love farmers, and we couldn’t eat without them.
But I used COMPARING of myself with a farmer, and built
my whole business on it. So instead of buying a $150K
combine, I took the plunge and bought the best computer
I could afford (because that was MY harvester mechanism).
Moving on, instead of purchasing tons of seed, and working
hard to plant them, then waiting months for them to grow, so I
work again to harvest them…I simply placed 20 cent ads that
I could (within literally minutes) reap into money.
Thus, even though internet marketing took EVERY OUNCE
of energy I had. Even through it stretched my frustration-capacity to levels I had never known before. And even though I was scared as I watched dollar after dollar pour into the costs of my business, I considered it all a very small thing compared to buying combines & seeds & land…so I could make it as a farmer like my kinsfolk.
Today, I rat-a-tat-tat some snarky emails and money pours in sometimes every minute of the day. It happens while I sleep,while I eat, while I’m on the golf course…it almost seems like a miracle to me.
But it isn’t. It’s the fruits of building business based on how easy
it was COMPARED to farming.
I make so many decisions based on comparison it’s comical.
So if you want to lubricate your struggle with a bit of perspective,
compare it to something much harder, and much less in line
with your dreams and nature.
I knew (beyond the shadow of a doubt) that NOTHING in the
traditional landscape of making ca$hflow could satisfy my
curiosity for travel, freedom, location-independent living,
time-away from doing stuff, studying a variety of subjects,
and also attempting to contribute to the world in non-boring ways.
So for me, even though this little adventure has stretched me
to call forth new levels of thinking and acting and becoming…
for me, COMPARED to the alternative of 2-3 weeks off per year,
working under the direction of someone else, and putting a limit
on my earning potential…the alternative simply ceased becoming a viable option under any circumstances.
So today, play around with the idea of comparison…and see if
it doesn’t spring forth a new resolve of determination and diligence.
A new experience of the world awaits us both this week.
Let’s do it.
P.S.S Mark’s favorite source of ca$hflow from the very beginning is his high-ticket affiliate program. He is
hosting an intimate LIVE event in Phoenix this
Thursday and Friday on how to make your next $100K using
this program. Although the hotel block is sold out,
our staff will help you figure out a solution to get your
butt to the event if you’ve got the desire. A ticket is
$1K to the event, but if you join Mark as a Platinum
