Some people will tell you not to trust everything you see on the internet. Including certain training courses. I have learned so much on the internet and I'm not talking about college courses, I'm talking about private organizations that are willing to teach you certain things for a fee. Skeptics and cynics are always going to tell you to "beware". Now, granted, there is junk out there but for the most part there is a lot of good information on-line. Do your due diligence, study the course before you buy and if it checks out, do it. My guys are constantly doing on-line research when we are ready to launch something or move forward with something new. Hope this helps. Enjoy.
There's a lot of good stuff out there. Stop saying that it's a big scam and there's nothing good on there. There is, man. Those people that talk about getting scammed, they get scammed every day and they don't even know it, man. Put things in perspective and stop lying to yourself and understand that there are scams everywhere.
Hey, guys. I wanna talk to you guys about scams, especially scams on the internet. I hear a lot of people say, "You know, watch out with Internet. There's a lot of scams out there. Don't take any courses on the internet. I'm not talking about college courses. I'm talking about just, you know, a course from a private organization or just, you know, somebody's website, a private website. Be careful with that. You know, you're gonna get scammed." And look, granted, there is scam out there. But there's a lot of good stuff out there, guys. Trust me. I've taken a lot of courses online and I've learned so much that I have applied to Bravo. So much, guys.
Now, do your due diligence. Go out there. Find out who these people are. Make sure that they're, you know, credible, and that, you know, they've done their part. It's easy to find these people out. One of the things...people talk about the internet. People talk about social media and how, you know, there's a lot of bad stuff going on there. And, again, I understand that conversation or that argument. But what social media does is I believe that it exposes us. It really does. It exposes us, man. I truly believe that it does. And yeah, there...you know, a lot of people lie. You know, people have said, "Look, you see a couple on Facebook and they have all these happy pictures and then they end up getting a divorce six months later."
I get that. I understand that. But, you know, if they post long enough, if they're on there long enough and the other thing too, it's very hard to fake it, you know, maybe a couple posts here and there, but after a while, your true colors are gonna come out, man. And you can tell the people out there, they're not dumb. We're not stupid. We understand that, you know, if somebody is a scammer, if somebody is lying, if somebody's wearing a fake façade, it's gonna get exposed. It really is and I'm not talking about somebody else who's gonna expose him. I'm talking about it's just gonna surface.
I mean, you can only fake it for so long. You really can, especially, when you're constantly posting up...you know when you're constantly on social media, it's very hard to hide certain things. And so, again, going back to my original statement is, you know, do your due diligence. You know, go out there, do some research, find out who they are. And, you know, for the most part, a lot of people know what they're talking about and it's the. You know, a lot of people also...they'll go and they'll take a course online and they'll think, "Well, I only learned two or three things."
Apply those things. You know, this wasn't a course online, but I took a course on copywriting and I was there for three days. And out of all those three days, I think I picked up three really gold nuggets and, man, those things have changed the way I see ads, the way I see emails, the way I see, you know, posts on social media, completely 100%. It was worth every single penny. I think I paid like, 800 bucks, 900 bucks for a copywriting class. And I say three...I think it was just two days, man. I think it was two days for like $800, and each day was like, I don't know, I think it was like a six-hour course. So it was a total of maybe like 12 hours. But, guys, I'm telling you the stuff that I learned there and I learned it from people that know what they're doing.
If you wanna learn, you need to go out there and you need to work hard at learning, even if it means going out there and doing research on the person that you're gonna learn from. I get it. It's not easy to give somebody $800 and think, "Oh, yeah, man, I gonna walk out of this a better man, a better person at what I'm trying to be better at." It doesn't always work that way, but for the most part, it does. It really does. And the other thing is that people go in there, they're already conclusive. They're cynical about it. And so, those people are never gonna learn anything because cynical people...people that are conclusive, already have made up their minds.
So, they're gonna come out there and they're gonna convince themselves that they were right. We're always trying to convince ourselves that we're right. Did you know that people listen to other people talk in conversations just to see that what they say is what we think, and if it's not, then we kinda like, have this auto shut off, where we kinda shut off a little? We're still hearing them talk, but we're not actually listening because it doesn't matter. I don't agree with what they're thinking. And a lot of people go through life that way. Stop being cynical, stop being conclusive in your thoughts.
There's a lot of people out there that know more than you do on certain subjects, on certain matters. And if you wanna get better, it's best that we listen to those people. There's a lot of good stuff out there. Stop saying that it's a whole...that it's a big scam and there's nothing good on there. There is, man. There is. And one other thing, those people that talk about getting scammed, they get scammed every day and they don't even know it, man. They don't even know it that they're getting scammed every day. They get scammed by the fast food industry. They get scammed by the news, the local news, the national news.
They get scammed by the educational system. Don't talk about, "Well, I never get scammed because I'm smart." You get scammed every day and you don't even know it. I'm telling you. You don't even know it, man. So, go out there. Again, go, do your due diligence. I'm not saying that the internet is perfect and that everyone that's on there is a professional, but do your studies, man, and you'll quickly find out if they're legit or not. Scams, yeah, they exist. They're everywhere. Put things in perspective, put things in perspective, and stop lying to yourself and understand that there are scams everywhere, everywhere.
