I visited a website yesterday before it's launch. Everything talked about there appeared to be terrifically encouraging, direct and real as far as being a method to succeed online. Just a few hours ago I visited it after it's launch. I went to look what the price tag would be on it, all along hoping it would be permissive. But at $997 it might as well have been one of those Super Guru's products priced way over $3000. It was way out of my league. Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I surprised? Not at all. I knew the way he talked on his video it would be out of my range. It seemed as though he was ready to be a 'Big Dog'. This is not to say he is a bad person or that the testimonials on his site cannot be believed. I am merely saying he is moving on up in the industry and loosing site of those behind him.
There are people like myself; who are still struggling to make a living. Sure I want to be able to save time; but that is not as important as keeping the lights, water, and heat on. I am working hard to get "there". As always it infuriates me to see brash people on their sales pages say things like 'only this or that price'. These people are not catering to the little guy or gal but the gurus that want to make money with the next workable system or the poor fool that just got a large settlement or inheritance of some kind, or has a credit card that isn't maxed out yet.
I do have quite a few people in this business that I look up to today. But a lot of the other people I perceive them saying; 'I want to help people'; then they turn around and charge unattainable prices for their products. As I have said before; I am not a tire kicker, nor am I addle brained. I am an intelligent determined and articulate lady entrepreneur with little or no capitol; which makes it hard to get from point A to point C. But I will struggle on because I am convinced that I will succeed.
So though I am annoyed at a lot of the people that are selling systems, software, and other products for excessive prices I am here to tell you this. I believe that I shall soon have that experience of going to paypal or my bank account and see the money I have made with my labor. And I won't have to charge high prices, make people feel bad because they can't buy this or that, and I shall end up touching people's lives in a positive manner.
