Have you met any internet millionaires yet? You know there are more and more of them all the time these days, don't you?
I imagine you are wondering what they are like; would they be approachable if you are in financial need?
Well, I have met some via business ventures or resources online - I was about to say, just in the last few months, but on thinking it over I realize that I've become aware of more internet millionaires over the last 15-16 years. I can't say I'm close buddy-buddies with any of them.
Let me explain. When I decided to publish my novel online in 2001 I found that I would have to promote it myself. Setting up a website based on the theme of my book, and using it to draw attention to my novel was suggested as my first step. I learned to do that, but kept looking for more ways to market it online. This led me to sign up for various programs or business ventures. Some I have dropped, but some I still work at, and in the last year and a half or so, I have joined some bigger ones.
As I review them in my mind, I recognize a common denominator. Each of the founders of those businesses has a story of once being a broke or very ordinary individual, but they were not afraid to be resourceful and to try out things that they learned. Then success came to them, and they began to profit in larger and larger numbers. In a number of cases they found themselves to be internet millionaires in just a matter of a few months or in two or three years.
Most of them teach their followers their methods by videos or webinars (web seminars). That is how I have just in the last two days heard two men from two different companies share their story of how they went from poor ordinary men to millionaire ordinary men.
I observe that each of these felt they owed it to others, to share their methods so that other people could also become wealthy on the internet. In the one case, the man was a USA soldier stationed in Japan, became friends with a very smart tech-genius from India, and together they devised a system of selling and drop-shipping on a global basis around the world. No need to personally handle the things they sold. Instead, they would locate a profitable item online, go sell it on eBay or Amazon, and then when it sold, quickly go buy it and have it shipped to their own customer. These two men have no need to work any more, but they have started two companies that train others to do exactly what they did! They love to spotlight these people and praise and rejoice with them when they succeed as well.
Their problem is that the world-wide COVID-19 epidemic slowed business down a lot. But these men are resourceful and have already gone into other businesses.
In the other case, the young man was down and out after attempting some multi-level marketing businesses. One evening he saw a beautiful sunset and whispered a prayer. After that he discovered attraction marketing. The online technical stuff to do with websites frustrated him, but his twin brother stepped in, and made things work. Their online business took off! They would no longer need to work at all, but they have changed the focus of their company to specialize in helping others come into profit with whatever their business venture is. Now they delight in praising and show-casing the individuals who are becoming wealthy though using their resources and helps.
In fact, they have a live Zoom Webinar every Wednesday evening, that is free to attend, (if a member gives you a link, and I'll gladly share mine). They interview members who excitedly share the various tips they are finding profitable in their own lives. Most of them are already making 5-to 6 figures in incomes every month!
Their exclamations and the lingo they use when excited show them to be of a younger generation than myself, but I must say, I am thrilled to discover them. It gives me hope that I can become an internet millionaire also. My dream is to help others become self-supporting, and for missionaries and ministries to finally be able to take all the opportunities before them. I like to teach and I love to give!
Now that I think about it, I know this happened to two college students, it happened to a doctor in Montreal, and a number of others as well. From a philosophical standpoint, I am greatly encouraged that not everyone that becomes well-off turns into a selfish ogre. There are quite a few altruistic internet millionaires out there, praise God!
