I wasn't always an internet entrepreneur - just an entrepreneur.
I've always loved selling stuff.
When I was 12 years old, we sold pancake breakfast tickets outside the grocery store.
None of my colleagues liked selling with me because I would always steal my their customers.
I thought, "Hey, if someone is going to make the sale, it might as well be me, right?"
Ever since then, I've always enjoyed selling and I got good...really good.
I started reading books on sales and marketing, personal finance and business as a whole.
One big takeaway from my favorite business book was that the Rich don't work for money from Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
I had been working for money my entire life. I didn't know a better way. So, I figured that I might as well find the highest paying job I could find.
What did I do? I remember being on the bus with one of my buddy's who was talking about how he had made $700 that weekend.
I was intrigued.
I was always looking for new ways to make money, especially if they were legit.
"How did you make $700 this weekend? You're not into selling drugs, are you?"
"No, of course not! I sold two security systems and made $700 bucks! You should come to one of our meetings."
Huh. I didn't have anything to lose, so I showed up and stayed for pizza afterwards. Before long, I was selling security systems.
I learned how to sell through good ole fashioned door-to-door selling in college during the summers...
