It seems like everyone and their mother has some ‘Free’ advice to give out nowadays. If you are new to marketing or sales it can be a daunting task to decide whose advice you’re going to follow. I know, I’ve been there myself. When you are surfing the Internet it is very easy to fall victim to some snazzy sales page where someone is pretending to be the next ‘messiah’ and telling you how you can become a millionaire overnight if you just read their ‘Free’ report. The web has become so over saturated with these types of shady fellows that it sickens me. I try not to be that way, and if you have doubts about me… well let me just lay some things on the table for you right now.

In all sincerity, I don’t think that I am the best salesman on the planet. I don’t claim to be the best trainer on the planet and I am definitely NOT a millionaire yet. I live a humble life in Brevard County Florida with my wife Melinda and our boxer puppy ‘Romeo’. I own a 2400 square foot $200,000.00 home. My wife and I have 2 cars. She drives a Hyundai SUV, I drive a BMW 740IL. Melinda works in an accounts payable department for a big communications company and I spend my weekdays working as a sales manager and trainer for a nation wide home service provider. We own a few different Internet businesses and our combined income is approx 200k per year from all of our different income streams.

Why am I telling you all of this? Well, because I don’t want you to think that I’m pretending to be something I’m not! I tell it like it is. Some people like it and some people don’t. I have no need to pretend to be something that I’m not. I have no need to try and scam people into buying things from me on the premise that I can make them rich. The fact is… what you do with the information I provide is completely up to you. You will either use it to help you succeed or you will dismiss it and continue on your merry way. Which ever you choose is fine with me. Please don’t take me the wrong way. I have a genuine interest in helping people succeed! I have been very successful at sales and I continue to teach my methods to those that will listen. I will do this till the day I die. It is a great feeling to watch someone succeed and know that I’ve had an influence on them. It is a great source of pride for me to know that I have helped many people achieve their dreams with my sales training and I have no need to brag about it. It is what it is. Do with that information what you will. I do want to make these 3 suggestions in case you are considering to take someone’s advice that claims to be an expert in their field…

#1 Do they over promote them selves and their products? Mentors that legitimately want to ‘help’ people will provide lots of free advice to help newbies get on the right track. Bare in mind that we all have bills to pay so you will always see that we promote our products, but is there a balance, or is it all about the money? You decide…

#3 Do they lay all their cards on the table? Are their tips and tricks just a bunch of smoke and mirrors? Are they dazzling you with brilliance or baffling you with bull crap? Is their advice redundant, old and dry. Are they making you jump through hurdles to get tiny tid-bits of advice or are they being straight with you from the start. Do they talk about only business, or do they let you in to ‘their world’?

#2 Are they ethical? What baring does their moral compass display? Does the ‘expert’ rant and rave about short cuts and mischievous schemes that in essence will help you ’swindle’ people out of their hard earned money? Or do they provide good down to earth advice with examples of how their methods have produced for them?

Notice the common thread here? YOU HAVE TO DECIDE. Don’t just fall for the first one trick pony show you come across. Pick several people. Follow their progress. Communicate with them via email. Ask them questions. Do they respond or do they just shrug you off? Use the information you gather to make a qualified decision about whose advice you’re going to follow. There are many people out there ‘Faking It’ . . . don’t fall victim.

  1. Omar, I loved reading this post. I too cannot bear all those marketers that bang on about how much money they are earning all the time.

    I don’t know whether it’s an English `stiff upper lip’ thing, but I find it really distasteful, tacky and totally unclassy to go on about how much money I’m earning, and flashing my various accounts. I also think it puts people off, it’s not exactly conducive to helping people and striking up a good rapport with your subscribers, I don’t think. “Hey, look at me, I’m loaded and you’re not” LOL!

    Looking forward to your product launch 😉

    Best wishes
