Today’s lesson is about realizing your limits and restrictions. It’s about knowing when you should zip it and listen instead of talking. It’s also about not letting white noise change your state of mind through some promised magic.
It’s about putting down the domainer ‘crack pipe’.
So you were told you will make a fortune with domains, a killing – unlike in any other market. They sold you the eBooks and the seminars, they gave you free accounts at PPC providers.
You read the eBooks and attended the seminars, then you parked your domains and did your very own mini-sites. Then waited patiently for the golden shower from heavens to arrive.
It never did.
Exactly what is the domainer ‘crack pipe’ and who is smoking it?
There are a lot of domainer ‘crack pipe‘ smokers – they promise to make you rich overnight. Do a simple check about their personal achievements and domain portfolios and think for a second: if they were as successful as they professed, would they really pass the riches on to you?
What they pass on is the domainer ‘crack pipe‘ – the illusion of success and grandeur. Which is fine, as long as they pull those blinds over people that have nothing better to do with their time.
But your time is valuable and you should be able to be successful without all this noise and second hand smoke. And since I mentioned smoke, beware of the mirrors as well – they go together in a seamless pair.
It’s very easy to fall prey to domainer ‘crack pipe‘ smokers: the promises alone make you stop in your feet, all while you were casually strolling downtown Domain Avenue. And sometimes, while looking around the marketplace with all the peddlers yelling their wares you can lose both your wallet and shirt in mere minutes.
In a nutshell: be vigilant. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Take what is promised to you with a pinch of salt. Add your own spices in whatever you do. Acquire chameleon skin.
And most importantly, don’t smoke the domainer ‘crack pipe’.
