If I had known the man in charge was a crook I would have never gotten involved with the company, even though it was built around a great idea.
Internet Marketing is just like any other business, in that there are unscrupulous people just waiting to pounce on the naive and unsuspecting. It has been my displeasure to be one of the unsuspecting. An idea was shared with me that was totally awesome, if only the people that were managing it weren't scumsucking vermin looking for a quick meal.
This is why I always say that you need to to research any opportunity your presented with, and then research some more, even then you can still get burned. If your lucky and you pay attention to details, maybe you'll only get scorched a little.
This was the case with me. As soon as I smelled something fowl, I decided to stop promoting the opportunity and write off my investment as a lost. The company still exists, I think and I made a lot of wonderful contacts that I'll cherish for a lifetime. (You must always look for the silver lining, right) I don't fault myself because you can never know what the future will hold and what will unfold. What I do know is that whatever is going on in a business, good or bad, it will come to light.
This is the major problem with MLM type businesses. I am glad I am going in another direction, still within the marketing arena but more closely tied to music and entertainment.
I have partnered with a great guy who has knowledge, expertise and most importantly, integrity. That man is Glenn Gordon of Glenn Gordon Publishing. I'll be talking more about him and what we're doing next week. Except I want to say that he is the catalyst I needed to get this thing off and running.
The whole point of this post is to let you know that difficulties and hardships will occur. It is all in how you deal with it, regroup and start over. As long as you have breath, you have a chance to get it right.
That's why my partner and I are taking the good idea, improving it and implementing it to the benefit of us and all who choose to join us.
