How to make it without faking it

Don’t try to fake it until you make it. Don’t pretend to be the expert.

If you’re just starting out on your online journey, blog about it. Be yourself. Check out products from people who are really making money online, find the best ones, and tell your readers about them.

Interview people who are one or two levels above you. After all, your readers would like to know how to make their first $1,000.

And if you find a school teacher with a neat little system for doing just that, you’ve got a winner. You don’t need to make promises of earning a gazillion dollars a month with no work.

You can and should keep it real.

Don’t try to fake it until you make it. Don’t pretend to be the expert.

And your readers will respect you for your honesty. In fact, if you build a reputation for nothing else BUT honesty,

I guarantee you can be successful.

So here’s the recipe for NOT faking it until you make it:

1: Always be yourself.

2: Don’t lie. Do. Not. Lie.

3: Find people who are a little more successful than you.

Interview them, promote their products or even team up with them to create a product.

4: As you move up the ladder, continue to find people who are a little more successful than you are – people one or two rungs up the ladder from you.

5: Continue to promote their products, interview them and team up with them to create products based on their successful methods.

6: Take as many of your readers with you on your success journey as possible. You are walking with them hand in hand, not lecturing them from on high.

You are one of them, so talk to them like they are your partners in success and that’s what they will become.

7: Watch as your readers stick to you like glue, because they feel you are like they are. They like you and they TRUST you.

They feel your respect for them, and they know you will not lie to them or let them down.

8: Don’t forget to have fun. If you’re having fun, then the experts you work with and your readers will have fun, too. Enjoy the journey up the ladder.

I know I said it before, but I’ll leave you with one final thought:

Be yourself and never, ever fake it until you make it 🙂
