When we write – we create something for free.
In this harsh capitalist world – everybody has to sell something, somehow to someone.
If you want to sell an apple, you got to pick up that apple for free. But what do you do when there are no free apples, how do you make money?
Do you sell time? Time is very precious, it’s better saved than exchanged for money – I don’t want to sell my youth or adulthood, instead I will do my best to create something for free. For example – information.
Information is a collection of thoughts that came from past experiences.
If I write a book and make couple of cents, then I will think – how do I make more cents with the book. Maybe I should make the book better, maybe I should write more books. There are many approaches to creating information.
If my videos market me, I then will think – should I make more videos or should I make better quality videos.
Most of the time quality depends on skills, sure you can learn every single skill, but learning a new skill takes time, it’s easier to buy skills from someone else, a person who has devoted his life to that skill. It will cost you money, but it will save your time. Time is the most precious resource everyone has, but most sell it.
I would never sell my time. I wouldn’t even move in that direction. Instead I would invest my time in building something of my own. For example a blog, a book, a podcast – I don’t know how to sell this stuff yet, but I’m slowly getting there.
As far as I heard – it takes up to 4 to 5 years to build something online.
I can create information for free and information is the most valuable thing after time. With the right information – you can make wonders.
Most of the time, people don’t have the information and knowledge and don’t have money. But every single being has time.
We all have 24 hours per day – but if we waste time on games, we won’t have a blog. So it’s our duty to find creative ways to invest our time in asset building, if we don’t have money to hire experts.
A person without direction will get lost. I too stalled 10 years before I created this blog, I believe I wasn’t mature to go for it, but now I’m mature.
It’s hard to sell when you’re selling the same thing everybody else is selling, so you have to be some sort of monopolist of your information. Your information has to be very specific if you want to be a monopolist.
Create information for free and then do your best to sell it.
