Many budding entrepreneurs are beguiled by motivational conferences. There’s a buzz of excitement in the air. The hall or conference room seems to be filled with successful men and women. The speakers on stage are multi-millionaires.
What’s more they all tell the same story. Anyone can do it. It isn’t difficult. For a reasonably investment you can receive from them the blueprint of their success. With this information you can practically start spending your millions right away.
You go home in a state of euphoria. And then the real world kicks in. The blueprint for success is not as simple as it was made out to be. Quite often it isn’t all that comprehensive. If you weed out all the waffle and make a list of the relevant points 100 pages of the A4 sized manual is condensed into as little as 10 pages.
You also find that you don’t have the time to get the system going and there are costs you hadn’t allowed for.
If you do manage to get something up and running it doesn’t always attract the promised degree of response.
You feel that you are a failure. Somehow it is your fault that you’re rather worse off than you were before. Desperately you sign up for another conference and the whole rigmarole starts all over again.
Well cheer up. It isn’t you. It’s the system. The vast majority of the audiences are in exactly the same position as you are. They are aspiring millionaires who have had to struggle and rely on credit cards or savings to pay anything from several hundred to several thousands of pounds to attend the course. And they too have had minimum success.
These conferences are not scams. The speakers are as successful as they claim and the blueprints they sell are the methods they used. They are perhaps a little economical with the truth about how much it actually costs to place advert or buy lists of addresses, not to say the increasing cost of postage. They also don’t allow for the fact that most of the hopeful attendees spend most of their time earning a living and can’t work on the schemes they’ve bought into sufficiently.
By all means try them. You might be one of the people who are successful. Don’t class yourself as a failure if you don’t belong to that group.
It is possible to build up a very successful business and to be your own boss by working in a way designed specifically for you in your situation and with your financial situation and commitments taken into account.
