A subscriber replied to one of my recent internet business, technology-focused emails with the following question:
“Why do software developers make servers so hard to configure?”
They really don’t. But i’ll get to that shortly.
First, a reminder that the deadline for 90 Minute Business Command Center draws near. It’s only FOUR days out as i sit here writing this. Because of the way Gmail works, if you’re reading this on there, it might appear new although you received it several days ago.
If you were considering joining the Super Traffic Machine in time to get the awesome Business Command Center bonus, in which i walk you through the entire technical setup for your online business,while eliminating almost all 3rd party service fees… i HIGHLY suggest you check the link below NOW and make sure the counter hasn’t already expired:
Servers are not hard to configure at all. In fact, it can be so simple, it might not take more than a single instruction.
But this speaks to a bigger problem that plagues online wantrepreneurs, who typically enter the industry under false promises of riches without need for technical skills.
It’s not that the required tech is “hard”, rather they mentally block themselves to any instructions, no matter how straightforward and well-explained, which could otherwise help them learn.
My wife, Aya, she’s an incredible chef. She makes the most delicious, attractive food. All our friends look forward to her delightful dinner parties.
She plans out every little detail, and does everything with precision and love.
Often, after eating at our home, friends will ask Aya for the recipe of one of the items they particularly enjoyed.
She is baffled because the recipe is neither special nor her invention. In fact, it’s readily available on the internet, and was almost randomly selected. Sometimes, she herself would’ve got it from the internet for the first time, specifically for the dinner party!
Yet, the wives inquire.
This is where their cards are revealed though, because quickly their request is followed by a statement along the lines of, “i’m so useless in the kitchen.”
In truth, when they ask for the recipe, it’s not because they ever intend to try it. They don’t actually LIKE being in the kitchen or doing anything inside it. Their resignation of “i’m no good” is just an excuse to cover up that they don’t enjoy the kitchen.
Which is their prerogative. but it’s why, even after 10, 20 years of being wives and mothers, they’re ALWAYS bad in the kitchen.
Aya, on the other hand, she LOVES what she does and she takes pride in it. So she pays attention to detail, she experiments, she learns, she puts herself out there, and she even makes mistakes sometimes. But she keeps at it and honestly she’s the only one who notices her mistakes.
What does this have to do with the server configuration question?
Some people, with certain subjects, completely SHUT DOWN. Like, you can’t give them a simple enough set of instructions to do something or explain a concept, because they’ve already decided not to listen.
They’ll say something like:
* “Oh, i’m no good with numbers”
* “i’m so dumb with tech”
* “oh this stuff is so hard, can you just do it for me?”
You’re allowed to have things you like and things you don’t like, things you’re good at and things you’re not…
But if your aspirations are in the realm of an INTERNET-based business, then you’re asking to rely on technology to derive an income. If you think you’re gonna do that, build a business that depends on technology, without getting your hands dirty and learning a little bit of technology…you’re NUTS!
I’m not saying you gotta learn to program, but heck, a little understanding of the basics of how to install WordPress, or how to map a domain name to your site, or how to configure a webserver. Jeepers.
These are basics. Shit, even learning a little HTML or CSS wouldn’t kill you for goodness sake.
The web is FILLED with tutorials and people asking for help and others giving solutions to technical problems.
If technology “isn’t your thing”, what you mean is, you don’t like it. Please, find yourself an OFFLINE way to make money. Otherwise you’re going to be a target for every crook who’ll tell you what you wanna hear…that you can make money using internet technology, without a website, without technical skills, just by buying their “system”.
Do you even hear how retarded that sounds?
You have to at least be OPEN to technical ideas so you can benefit from simple, straightforward instructions.
Making a cake isn’t rocket science. You find a recipe, you follow the instructions precisely, and you end up with a cake. It might not be perfect, but it will be cake.
I built the Super Traffic Machine following this philosophy. It’s a recipe. A recipe for an internet-based business, with all its marketing, branding, and technical components.
At the start of each module, you get a list of expected finished items, a chapter is dedicated to completing each. Numbered steps are given, with screenshots for every step. (We even do this for writing sales copy!) At the end of each chapter, you check off the item you finished. When the module is complete, you cover the cog on your wall and move onto the next module. In the end, you have a business machine that turns traffic into commissions.
If you can follow a recipe, you can build a Super Traffic Machine.
All the details about Super Traffic Machine are at the link below:
Also, i’m doing an extra training component if you join us before the 31st of January (which is FOUR days away).
I hold your hand through ALL the technical steps of building a business website, LIVE, right in front of you. After this class, you’ll have a complete business command center at your fingertips, where you can create products, deliver courses, take orders, manage customers, send marketing emails, and more…all from the same simple dashboard. All for nearly free, saving you hundreds of dollars a month in 3rd party service fees.
After the deadline, this extra live training will NOT be available to new subscribers. The only way to get it is to join the Super Traffic Machine before the clock runs out.
