Hey Blackhatters! As many of you already know, I'm rather famous (or should I say, "infamous") on this forum for doing huge posts of downloads for everyone to grab. Granted, those are fun to do, and from what I can tell, they are fun for alot of the people here to get (especially the "noobs"). Getting free stuff is what originally attracted me to this forum, and perusing through many of the ebooks I downloaded gave me hours of intellectual pleasure and gave me a decent overview about what internet marketing was about. However, I began to notice that I was spending an awful lot of time looking for the "next great secret" - the "holy grail" that would instantly make me wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. And I was beginning to realize that I was DOING NOTHING WITH ANY OF THE IDEAS. I was just building my endless "secret vault" of amazing internet marketing ebooks, filled with ideas that sowehow I was going to implement "somewhere down the road". Well, I finally woke up and realized that I had become a "dowload junkie" and a pipe-dreamer. Now don't get me wrong. Occasionally, I'll still take a peek at what may seem to be some fresh new ideas or approaches to Internet Marketing, but I HAVE learned to actually take one or two potentially profitable ideas and IMPLEMENT THEM - and REALLY WORK THEM. I no longer take an idea, work it for a week or two, and then move on to the next one if the previous one didn't make me rich right away. Doing it that way simply doesn't work. You need to work and refine an idea for months before you can expect to see a substantial return - all the while, learning from what does and doesn't work. It's sort of like surfing. When the board starts tipping too far forward, you move back - and when it starts tipping too far back, you move forward - constantly making adjustments. Pretty soon, you get the hang of it and become a decent surfer. Same way with Internet Marketing. Another thimg I learned is that some of the absolute best internet marketing ideas and insights come from right here on the BHW forum. There are some amazingly experienced and knowledgeable individuals on this forum who are consistently posting invaluable information FOR FREE! . . . Listen to them and learn. Their stuff is worth far more than 99.9% of the ebooks out there. People like Harro, Nevarc, Wealthy199, Stumickel, The Lazy Pig and many more on this forum are more knowledgeable than the so-called "Gurus" who charge upword to $5,000.00 to teach you re-hashed stuff. So, in closing, I just want to say, enjoy yourselves. Enjoy the downloads that are made available on BHW by people like myself and many others, but be aware and take an honest evaluation of yourself and then GET TO WORK and MAKE SOME MONEY.
