Rich Niche Blog: What Do You Do With Another Shiny Moneymaking Opportunity?

Yet another moneymaking opportunity has crossed my path. Like all the rest, it’s extremely tempting to jump in, because the promise, as with all of these seductive offers, is quick and easy cash.

I’m learning that it may be easy, but for each opportunity to really payoff, and work like they advertise, means devoting time and energy. And, most importantly, treating this like a business.

Last night when I watch the promotional videos, it was oh so tempting to press the “Yes” button. And, I did! But, an error message came up, and my potential sponsor was unavailable for a few hours to chat with me.  Since I was busy the rest of the evening, I suggested we delay our call for the weekend when there was more time.

Guess what I thought of the rest of the evening, and then when I woke up this morning? Yes, the tantalizing opportunity. I also thought about my current commitments, and the energy I’m putting into them to make them work.

The chatter going on in my head started to assess my current time and energy commitments. It didn’t take long for me to realize that by taking on yet another glittering opportunity would only be a distract me from what I’m currently looking to achieve.

And guess what again, I realized in the nick of time that I can only put myself in a limited number of situations. Plus, getting involved with this opportunity would mean, yet another, monthly payment. Naturally the best pay off with this new offer means starting at the top, which of course, means a higher investment.

As I write this, I’m feeling extremely proud of myself that I haven’t rushed in to grab this new and exciting shiny object, despite the incredible moneymaking opportunity. I realize that I’m repeating myself, but I need the extra pat on the back!

As you well know if you’ve been faced with similar situations, the offers are almost too good to be true. Don’t be fooled and sucked into thinking or believing what they tell you, that it will only take 5-10 minutes a day. I guarantee the only way to make real money versus just pocket change, is to treat each moneymaking opportunity as a new business. Believe me, I know, I’ve been an entrepreneur for over twenty-five years.

The thought of another project at this point in time exhausts me. I know from years of experience, unless you treat each opportunity seriously, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get the payoff you dream of.

So the moral of this little episode for me is that because the link didn’t work, and my sponsor wasn’t immediately available, plus listening to my intuitive gut, I believe these were omens telling me to just say “no.”  In my mind, I’m also justifying that this opportunity will be around for a while, and I can always opt to get involved at another time.

Twelve hours from when I watched the promotional video to the time of writing this post has helped me to really think through the pros and cons. Plus, as I mentioned before, I’m feeling very proud of myself that I was able to curb the impulsive emotional “buy now.”
How about you?

When faced with any new and exciting moneymaking opportunity, I recommend that you force yourself to step away from the computer, think through your current commitments, and assess your time and energy ability to take on something new in your life, and listen and trust your intuitive gut.
