The Success Secret Every Savvy And Successful Entrepreneur Knows

Apr 1, 2008
Every successful entrepreneur knows that the secret to success is the ability to recognize a good opportunity when it presents itself, and then seizes the moment. That is what sets him or her apart from those who aren't successful.

Successful entrepreneurs are in total control of their own destiny. They are also in total control of their business. That's why they are successful. What this means is they own and market their own products. Sure, they may sell or recommend other people's product, but overall, they own, control, and sell their own products.

What do successful businesses like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Apple, Nike and Microsoft have in common? What do successful entrepreneurs like Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Magic Johnson, Jay-Z all have in common? They own and control their own products. They don't split commissions with other people. They own and market their own products, and keep 100% of the profit.

Affiliate marketing is great, and I have made good money as an affiliate marketer. But I make tons of money selling my own products. You can make good money as an affiliate marketer too, if you know what you're doing, but most people don't.

There are problems with affiliate marketing that I don't have as a product owner, such being cheated by the owner of the program, especially through the expiration of cookies, or through affiliate link hijacking, competing with thousands of other affiliates marketing the same product, etc. I keep all of my profits.

Savvy and successful entrepreneurs know that to really create wealth, you must own and control your own products, and keep all the profits. And when you market multiple products of your own, you create multiple streams of income that produce wealth for you from multiple avenues, all at the same time.

You will never get rich selling other people's products for the simple fact that you do not control those products. If the owner of the product that you're selling decides to discontinue it, you have lost an income source. But if you're in control of the product, you and you alone, decide when to call it quits.

If you want to make money, and lots of it, you must change the way you think. You must think like a successful entrepreneur -- like an owner -- instead of an affiliate. Then and only then will you be able to control your financial destiny.
