Not so long ago, I had no idea how to do much more than send email and look up things on the web. It wasn’t THAT long ago where cell phones looked like bricks and computers had recently shrunk to fit on a desk. My first computer was introduced in October of 1986 and was a Compaq 386-based PC compatible one. It was amazingly clunky by today’s standards, MATRIX CRACK but it was a miracle of sorts.
Those were the days when no one really understood the dizzying speed with which technology would invade our lives with “convenience and no real further need for paper.” Ha!
For anyone who has agonized for hours over trying to fix something relatively minor, or spent time wanting to learn how to do “this one little thing” – and in utter frustration, ristomanager found themselves yearning for the old typewriters where, although it was harder to correct the typing, the mechanics of making the darn thing work were within most operator’s grasp.
When I first purchased the Compaq 386, I remember asking the sales guy if it would be large enough memory or power or capacity (I had no idea of what to even ask, redribbonlive but I DO remember my kids Atari 64 from a few years ago and thought that the 64 must be much smaller than 386.) So, would this 386 be big enough for my future chiropractic office and patient files?” I asked this very innocently. After all, I wasn’t going to be replacing technology if I purchased the darn thing correctly in the first place.
I remember buying this as a special deal. It was about $1,500 and included – get this… a dot matrix printer! Wow, what a deal. For those of you who might not know what a dot matrix printer even was, hoodpay it was a printer with a ribbon and the letters were formed by tiny pins pricking into the inked ribbon, so if you looked closely, the letters looked like a small string of dots. At a distance, it looked OK, but the paper came in great “z fold” stacked sheets that went back and forth with tear-off edges that caught in the feeder wheels that turned and moved the paper along. It was so cool!
Clearly, I was not ready for the ever quickening pace of products that were to come.
Overall, I was slow to adapt to the changes, Rare movies on DVD wondering if all this computer stuff was just a “fad” and when would we get back to paper? It wasn’t until 1998 that I finally had to realize that the computer was here to stay. By that time, I’d graduated to a much bigger machine (can’t remember what it was), but my brother (who had firmly embraced this whole technology thing) had developed the habit of giving me his out grown computers along with some help along the way.
This taught me a lot about the basic care and function of the machines. I learned that they could be cantankerous for no reason; they could inexplicably break; crestin they were not intuitively decipherable; and I spent more than one day in tears, longing for the mysteries to unfold themselves.
On the other hand, I began to LOVE the worlds that were opening up through the monitor – that now had color! I could find things on the internet that I didn’t even know I was looking for. It was my window to increased knowledge in so many different fields. There were no real privacy issues, (that most people were aware of), yet along side the development of this groundbreaking technology was also the spectre of computer geeks finding ways to crack codes and create viruses and bedlam. Oh, joy!
Fast forward a number of years, and my skills increased quite a bit especially with my association with my Real Estate career. Now that I’m looking for other career options, it has become mandatory that I learn how to put systems in place to create income, while at the same time, finding things that will save others time and energy so they can learn more about working from home and creating an internet marketing business.
There is hope in all of this. Anyone who is determined and can take action can do this. Yes, there is a learning curve and depending on who you listen to, it can be large or small.
The most important things to do are: 1). Get clear with what you want and your BIG WHY you want it. As in any business, complacency and half-effort doesn’t fly.
Some would have you believe that with a few mouse clicks you can just open your eyes and watch the money pour into your account. That CAN happen to a few, but what most people don’t see, Fabric Printing is that in order to have that windfall, there can be days, weeks and months of preparation to get all the system pieces in place.
Others would have you believe that the whole thing is a scam and to stay away from any of it.
I say the truth is in the middle, as it often is. This will take work. No getting around it – I’ve tried! It will also take doing some due diligence to make sure you learn from someone credible who can really help you.
2). Once you start searching, you’ll probably be drifting about looking at some of the many different ways to make money on the internet, however, after a certain point, find ONE thing that you like and master it. Just one. AFTER it is mastered, then add something else that is related to your first thing.
3). As someone once said, “in order to learn to do anything new, ledecorfrancais find someone who has already done it and copy them.” That will certainly save some time!
