Can't Afford $47 Per Month?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

This message is for those of you who want to join the premium membership, but don't think you can afford to.?

?Do you want it badly enough?? If so, read on.

What is the main reason people are looking to make extra money?

My guess is this, and see if you don't agree with me.? We live in a society where we want instant gratification.? We want things now!?? In order to get these things, we'll charge up our credit cards to get them.? So now, we're on the 30 year payment plan to pay these things off.

So, the question isn't "can we afford it?",? but rather, "do we need to be spending money on this or that?"

Do we need to eat out 3 times a week?? Do we need Starbucks every morning?? Do we need this new toy because our neighbor got one?

What are your priorities?? One way to find out is to look through your checkbook or bank statement and see where the money went and chances are you'll find more than $47 spent on things you didn't need.

People are getting themselves into deep debt and then are looking for an easy way out.? And because of this, they start looking for the next shiny object that's gonna make them rich.? So, basically, they're an easy target for the "get rich quick schemes" out there.

When you're looking for the easy way out, you then become unreasonable, thinking your gonna make money fast on the internet.? All the while, you go deeper into debt because you bought into the next "big thing."

My suggestion is this:

a) ? stop going farther into debt

?b)? make a plan to start paying off debt.? When you get some of the smaller bills paid off,? It's like giving yourself a pay raise, which starts taking some of the pressure off.? Then maybe you'll stop thinking you need to be in a hurry to make money, which will change your mindset a bit.

?If you can't be disciplined in paying off debt, then chances are you won't disciplined enough to build an online business.? Both of these things take time.? The average person can get out of debt, not including their home, in 3-5 years.

The good news is that you can learn how to build an online business in a much shorter time than this.

Now that you're getting out of debt,? you also free up money to do paid methods, like PPC or an email campaign or placing ads or whatever.? That will build your business quicker.

You have probably heard of the saying, "You can make money or you can make excuses, but you can't make both."?

Well, I just took away your excuse, so go make some money!
