Internet Marketing Lessons From A Chinese Buffet – Part One

I love Chinese food, but I HATE chopsticks. I’m just no good with them…Seriously, it’s embarrassing.

Most of my friends love Chinese food too.

They’re good with chopsticks though which is…well,

…a growing problem

Hey everybody, Derek’s trying to eat with chopsticks again. Just look at the poor sap. Geez what a loser.

Harsh right?

I mean, with friends like these who needs enemies?

The laughter. The taunting. My uncontrollable crying like a little schoolgirl. Not to mention the corny jokes.

Ugh… [giggle, giggle] …Derek had an egg drop in his egg drop soup cuz he can’t hold it with the chopsticks! HeHeHe

Or…

Hey Derek, I’ve heard of fried rice, but not FLYING RICE. You know…cuz you can’t use chopsticks, and the rice flies everywhere. Get it? Get it?

I could go on if you want. Really. But I think you get the idea.

At this point, one thing is becoming clear.

Therapy.

I’m going to need it.

I knew a therapist once. He said therapy was expensive. Bad news for me.

I was broke.

So here I am, no money, and by this point I’ve already snapped the chopsticks in half in a moment of uncontrollable hulk-like rage.

You really won’t like me when I’m angry.

So what do I do? I NEED TO MAKE SOME QUICK CASH.

Not just for therapy, but for…well…everything.

My man, Hugo

You remember Lost, don’t you?

Lottery is no good.

I saw a news special one time called “The Curse of the Lottery Winners”.

I don’t really remember it, but a curse can’t be good, right?

I mean, didn’t we learn anything from Hugo?

Gambling is not a good idea either. I have horrible luck. Plus, I know I’d keep betting and lose it all eventually anyway.

What do I do?

Well…

I guess I could keep working at my minimum wage job, and hope that one day something better will come along. That just doesn’t sound appealing though.

I’d heard talk about people making money online. The whole working from home thing had always been an interesting idea.

I needed the money, and I was low on options. So, I decided to try it.

I didn’t expect to become a millionaire.

Now don’t get me wrong, it wouldn’t hurt. But really, I just wanted to earn enough $$$ to cover the therapy bills and maybe spring for some chopstick lessons. The problem was, I had no clue where to start.

Surprisingly, I found the answer right where this whole thing started…Chinese food. Well, a fortune cookie at least. It was really cool, and really inspirational. It was my “Ah-ha” moment.

my ah-ha moment

“A journey of a thousand miles…”

It read…

“a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” 

You may be in a similar situation.

You have heard talk about “making money from home” or starting your own “online business”.

But, like me, you are wondering where to start.

The answer is really quite simple…

start. right. where. you. are.

Start somewhere.

Do something.

Take action.

I’ve come a long way since my days of flying rice at the Chinese buffet. I’ve begun my journey into the world of “Internet Marketing”, and I have started my own successful online business. I now make a living from home working from my computer.

It’s been a great journey, an exciting journey, and sometimes, even a hard journey. But it’s been worth every step, and I’ve even made some great friends along the way.

I invite you now to begin your very own journey, and this blog is my attempt at helping you take that first step.

All the best,
Derek
