I received two emails over the weekend, both basically saying the same thing.
“Alun, I don’t want to start any of the businesses that you teach us about, as I’ll be sharing the market with other people.
Please, can you recommend a business that has no competition”.
Many people believe that competition is bad.
And they’re wrong.
Competition verifies whether there is a market or not.
The hardest business to start-up is one where no-one has ever heard of what you’re selling - you basically have to educate the market first - and that is phenomenally costly just to test if there IS a market.
The easiest business to start-up is one where you can see for yourself that there is a market, that people are buying.
Never, ever, try and invent something new - it’s extremely costly and very likely to fail.
Cruel but honest.
Some of the businesses I’ve shown you in recent weeks have been Amazon Stores, eBay Stores, AliExpress dropshipping stores, how to get into the t-shirt business and so on.
Each one has been incredibly successful for those who follow the system.
You wouldn’t start working as a bus driver or as a brain surgeon without following the system.
Even your first day at school, you had to learn the system.
Creating a successful business is all about finding out - before you start - what to do.
As just one example, for the Amazon Stores, those who followed the system have done really well, working only a few minutes a day.
A few others didn’t study or didn’t follow the system that was provided free of charge. They spent money buying adverts or simply posted contrary to what was taught. There was no need to spend money, no need to “invent” their own system. The systems I create work because they’re based on real-life experiences and multiple testing …. but only if you follow the system.
