So without further ado, let's get into the podcast. Getting rich quick is something everybody thinks like, Oh I can just do it right now and start something and I'm automatically overnight. I'll be rich. But the key to getting rich quick is actually taken a long time to prepare for it. So there's this saying that Abraham Lincoln actually said, and it's that if it's going to take me five hours to chop down a tree, I'm going to spend the first four sharpening my ax.
And I don't know if that's exactly the same, but it's close enough. And so I'm there. The key here is sharpening your ax is really important, okay? You have to be prepared to get rich quick. You can't just get rich quick with no skills, okay? So you have to learn how to do this stuff the right way and there's a lot of different things you can do in life to make money, but if you want to make money online and you want to get rich with it, you're going to have to do it the right way and doing something that you think is a good idea because nobody else is doing it is not going to get you anywhere. Okay? You have to model what other people are already successful at doing it. That's the key to it. You cannot just start from scratch and reinvent the wheel.
Unfortunately these days. It's very difficult to do that. If you already have a ton of experience and you have a mind blowing and awesome new way to do something, yes, go for it. But the thing is most people aren't in that place. It's a very select few that are ready for that and are in the right place for that. Okay. And even if you are in the right place, do you even have the resources to back it up? Probably not. And if you do, great, go for it. Resources meaning money mostly but also people and energy. Okay. So here we go. Getting rich quick first step, learn, whatever it is you want to get rich quick at for at least a year or two. Okay. It's just like a college degree. Think of it like that. If you're going to get rich quick, it's something you have to learn how to do it 100%.
Step two, do not just learn but do take action as you learn. Okay? Treat it like a college class. And if you're going to take business in college, they actually want you to create a real business, a business model, a business plan, and actually take action on that. Okay? I went to school with a bunch of peers of mine that were doing business and we're all excited about it. And it's funny because, I would say probably 80% of the class was all excited about their business. 20% didn't really give a crap. They're just taking the class just to get a credit on the 80% that were really excited about it. Built awesome business plans, but never took any action on it. I was the only person in that entire class, as far as I know, that actually action on the business plan they were building, the business plan I was building was for an eCommerce business and I presented it to the class and they were kind of dumbfounded and blown away and it kind of went over their heads and no one really understood it.
The other guys were doing things that were way bigger and while they sounded great, it would take resources that were way outside of their sphere of influence to actually make it happen. And none of them were really in the right position to do it. Whereas eCommerce is something that is within everybody's sphere of influence to make happen. Okay. You and I and anybody else as a single person can start any commerce store. It's not that hard. You can get suppliers really easily. Actually, if you just call them and talk to them. You can upload products to a website, you can drive paid traffic, you can do keyword optimization and search engine optimization. You can do conversion rate optimization and average order value, [inaudible] email marketing, Facebook ads, so on and so forth. You can actually make a profitable business all by yourself if you really wanted to.
It might take a little bit longer than if you were to hire a bunch of team members and train them and stuff like that, but you can do it. Okay, you can do it, but while it might look like you're getting rich quick to your friends because they didn't pay any attention to you while you were just getting started, it took you a long time to get rich. Okay, and you might've not even gotten rich. You might not be a millionaire, but Hey, you don't have to work that dead end, crappy day job that you hate. You don't have to answer to a boss. You can travel anywhere you want to. You can do anything you want to during the day. Monday morning comes along. You don't have to wake up till 11:00 AM or noon. You can walk outside and go run down the beach if you want to.
You can go to the gym, you can have some breakfast, you can relax. Orders are coming in on your iPhone. You're getting to chings on your Shopify store and all throughout the day are just chilling and maybe in the evening you want to do some work. Okay? That is getting rich too. You have to consider lifestyle benefits versus monetary benefits. You don't have to be a millionaire to live like a millionaire can absolutely live like a millionaire without absolutely being a millionaire in your bank account. If you want to live in different parts of the world, like Bangkok and Thailand or Manila in the Philippines, you can live in Bali, in Indonesia. You can live in ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam and live in Barcelona. Even more expensive cities if you want to. With e-commerce, it's all possible. Okay. And to get rich quick, you have to be willing to do the work.
That's the key. I think most people miss that. Most people get distracted. Most people get lazy, most people procrastinate. And if you're willing to dig in and actually do the work, you can get rich what seems like quick to everybody around you, but you know better. You know it took you a long time to get rich and that's okay because all the overnight success stories we heard about are years in the making, right? Every single overnight success story took them years of building an audience of building skillset, of building up wealth, of building up a sphere of influence, a network of people that could help them and assist them to to that next level took years and years and years of that work. Okay. Everybody that is an overnight success goes to the same upbringing and we all have the same exact path to success and that is hard work, determination, building up the skill set, building up your network, and actually taking action every single time you hear about something and doing something.
So take action. Guys. Don't stop and think about, Oh well is this going to lead to a bad way so that I can lead to a bad place? You can throw anything you want to against the wall, and if it sticks, great. If it doesn't, stop doing it. Do what comes naturally for you. If it's e-commerce, awesome. If it's not, go with something else. Affiliate marketing. Maybe you want to do Amazon instead of Shopify, whatever that is, but do it. Okay. Oh, don't hold back and don't think that I don't know. These people are saying it, but I don't really think it's going to work for me or I don't think it's real. I think it's a scam. SSBs it's all in your own head. Okay. And don't let other people get to your head, especially your family and friends that don't believe in you.
Okay? Don't listen to what they say. My biggest advice of you're really trying to get started with eCommerce and launch and become successful. Okay? First, put your head down and do the work. Keg train, get training, get a course, get mentorship and put your head down and do the work and stop talking and asking your friends and your family if it's a good idea or not. That's the worst thing you can possibly do because what are they going to say? Oh, that sounds shady. Oh, that sounds like a pyramid scheme. Oh, that sounds like a bad idea. Oh, that sounds like a waste of money. You should go get a job. You should go do what your mom and dad are doing or do what your brother or sister are doing. They have a great life and they have a great family.
They have a great career, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Don't listen to the haters. Don't listen to the disbelievers. Prove them wrong. Do what you know you have inside of you. Bring it out from within you and make something of yourself and get rich quick over night to those people. Okay? Do the work. Get inside your own head and make it work for you. Okay. The biggest struggle I always had throughout my entire life was getting over my own mindset, my own disbelief in myself, my own procrastination. If you can overcome that and you can believe in yourself, you can take action no matter what. You can feel good about what you're doing, even through the tough times, even through the times where you're disbelieving yourself, where you're doubting yourself, where your friends are doubting, the rear family is doubting you. If you can continue what you're doing through those tough times, you will build what's called the snowball effect, and you will do amazingly well. You will prosper way crazier than your wildest dreams, I guess. So get out there, get rich quick overnight.
