Should People’s Income Claims Be Your Deciding Factor When Joining A Home Based Opportunity?

You’ve seen them.

I’ve seen them.

They’re hard not to miss income claims that they’re plastered ALL over the internet.

It’s cool though…everyone is entitled to handle their business as they see fit.

So if you’re new to the whole “earning an income from home” world, what does seeing other people’s online earnings do to you?

Does it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

Does it instill some belief in you that maybe this online thing isn’t a scam after all?

I get it.

Seeing a fat check for $34, 225 dollars may get you excited…even play into your emotions a little bit.

On some occasions it’ll make you want to pull out your wallet and buy…

…but should you?

Should you jump into something without really thinking about it?

Most people do.

It’s a fact that most people make decisions based on emotion and justify it with logic.

You ever bought something and a few days later regretted buying it?

It happens to all of us at some point in life.

Here’s why it happens…

That’s what MARKETING is.

Think about it.

If someone is trying to sell you a weight loss product, would they show you a before and after photo with them being the same weight?

Probably not.

Here’s Where The Problem Comes In

Let’s be honest here…even IF someone was trying to sell you a weight loss product AND had the results to show for it, does that mean the same will happen to you?

Not likely.

Here’s why.

Everyone has a different mindset when it comes to exercising, making money online, or anything else that requires discipline and consistency to achieve desired a result.

See what I mean below:

Some people are always looking for the easy route without wanting to put in any type of effort.

Lazy much?


Umm…not necessarily lazy, but their mindset could use a little reprogramming.

The right mindset and motivation always helps.

The “How Much Money Do You Make” Rebuttal

This question kills me.

It really does…

…but it’s not gonna stop people from asking it.

I’m pretty sure someone will ask you that same question at some point or another.

It’s funny though because there is a really, REALLY, simple way that you can deal with these type of question (objection).

We are going to play the fake conversation game starring me and a random skeptic.


Ok, here it goes:

Skeptical Bob:  So Mike, this seems like a very good offer but I’m not sure if it will work.

Me:  How so Bob?

Skeptical Bob:  Well…why don’t you tell me something Mike.  How much do YOU make?

Me:  That’s a good question Bob, but lemme ask you this.  I am an Manufacturing Engineering Tech at my current job and I make $xx,xxx a year.  So tell me something Bob, how much of that money do you get to spend?

Skeptical Bob:  Well none of it Mike.

Me:  Exactly Bob…so whether I make 4, 5, or 6-figures a month with Empower Network it shouldn’t matter because you won’t be spending any of that either correct?

Skeptical Bob:  Well yeah, but…

Me:  How much money you will make (or not) relies solely on the time and effort you’re willing to put into this opportunity Bob…and no one else.

Skeptical Bob: But…but..

Me: But NOTHING Bob!  Goodbye!

[finish on a high note by hanging up the phone and slamming it down in a dramatic fashion]

Oh yeah, disregard that last part of the conversation…I was just having a moment lol.

You’d probably understand my humor if you already read this.

Ok, so here’s the deal:

Good marketing normally capitalizes on people’s emotions which is fine…

…as long as it isn’t abused.

Some people will flash claims of income not as means of social proof, but as a way of marketing to the lazy-minded person.

Not cool at all.

It should be about working with quality people, not herding as many people as humanly possible to make a quick buck.

If you’re someone that understands that it does require massive action and consistency on your part to generate an income online, then click here.
