Imagine that you have just entered your favorite coffee shop. You can already smell your usual, and you can’t wait to taste it. But, as you look around the room, you notice that the place is so crowded that you can’t have a table to yourself. You’re going to have to share with someone else, just as many other people seem to be doing already.
Now imagine that you’ve collected your coffee and have sat down at a table with someone who you’ve never seen before and haven’t met. After exchanging the usual pleasantries about the weather and how full the place seems to be, you discover that this person is a self-employed millionaire. And to look at him, you’d never guess. He’s not wearing a tailor-made suit, a shirt with French cuffs, or a tie.
In fact, he’s dressed just like you: in a comfortable, well worn casual shirt, that’s open at the neck, jeans, and tennis shoes. And you learn from him that he divides his time between working from home and coming to a coffee shop like the one you’re in. And as you both sip your lattes, you also learn that not only did he not make his money as the result of creating some fantastic software that everyone now uses.
He didn’t start a business in the financial sector. Nor the real estate market. Instead, he made all his money in an online information business.
Wouldn’t you want to know more? Wouldn’t you be just a little curious as to how someone with no technical skills had managed to go from where you are to earning 20 times what you make in a year, and doing it every year?
What questions would you have for this ordinary person with such an extraordinary income? And how would you feel if this person was willing to spend an hour or so telling you how you could do the same thing.
Would that interest you?
What does he consider to be success as an entrepreneur?
How does he think being an entrepreneur has hindered you from becoming a better person?
What systems has he set up in his home business to help it grow?
Besides money, what is his favorite ways to compensate people?
What’s the strangest thing h has ever done as an entrepreneur?
These kinds of question rise in your mind and you would start communicate with him. So this is the very closer thoughts for those who are going to start their business.
Terry Dean is such a person.
And you can hear what he has to say about how he did it in an interview that I did with him.
