First I’d like to thank you all for participating. All of your answers were extremely interesting to me and I didn’t read one answer that was necessarily “bad.”
Before I announce the winners (it’s not like you can’t just scroll down eh?) I want to answer the questions with my own answers and explain what I was looking for in your answers.
If you had $10,000 to invest in your Business, what would you invest it in? This could be one thing or any number of things.
- I’d invest in a pre-established Website that is already making money. Why build an empire when you can buy one, preferably one that is somewhat automated. Just look at all the celebrities who are now making more money off their clothing lines and restaurants then they ever made as actors etc. Did they build it? hello no, they bought it all. I’ve purchased several pre-established Websites in the past which have paid for themselves many times over.
There are many different business models and we all do things differently, so obviously I couldn’t say whether or not your answer was “good” or “bad.” But, some answers stood out among others.
What is your breaking point? In other words, what would cause you to quit trying to create a full-time income online.
The answers to this question weighed heavily on my decision, although it wasn’t the only deciding factor. I was looking for those who will honestly never quit. If it makes you happy to see something get difficult then you’re on the verge of success, or you’re already there. Things that are easy very rarely yield quality results. For this question I was looking for those who realize that!
What are your three main priorities in life? (most important to least important)
- a) Taking care of my Family and making them happy.
- b) Being a good person. I’m far from perfect, but I believe very strongly that we should all continuously strive to be good people. Just imagine how great the World would be if we all at least tried to do the right thing all the time. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve done some bad things and regrettably I still do from time to time, but I continuously try to do what’s right and correct what I’ve done wrong.
- c) Business/Finance – This ties into #1 because although it’s true money doesn’t buy happiness, a lack thereof creates all sorts of bad mojo!
Friends would be a close 4th.
There are alot of variables here as well. However, I believe family/loved-ones and being a good person should always be up at the top.
It was incredibly hard to decide the winners and I can tell several of you are on your way to success already and won’t need my help, whether you realize that or not.
