Whats In it for me......

I tried to write this blog post 2 times to day but I finally found a topic

Today I was watching the T3  and saw something I have never seen so clearly.
With out using exact examples. I see this is clearly a problem and its getting worse.

Everyone wants to know “what’s in it for me?” “what do I get out of it?”

This mentality is killing some small business and our industry is no different. The old cliché if you give someone an inch….. I think you get the point.

I love to win things I think every one does but think of this. What prize did Jon Olson win? When he is spending time in front of 75 people ranting ( Yes Jon is crazy at times) I don’t agree with him 100% of the time.

He makes more $ online then I do  (duhhhhh!.) When was the last time someone thanked him for his time. How many times has someone like Jon been burnt, and still keeps doing it. I'm just going to guess he is not everyones favorite person.

Trust me Jon sometimes is a blow hard ( oh boy! that is going to come back to bite me) BUT....

There is times when what he says is some of the best advice you could get and it was free on top of that.

And there is a lot of owners that try to give, it may be a free upgrade and hand full of credit’s, or a coffee cup.

But there is always going to be one person that doesn't think something is fair or they want more.

I do this business because I love it. And if I have something extra to give I try to. I donate to cancer with my profits and Jon Olson donated $50.00 to my cause not cause he needed to but because he thought it was the right thing to do.

So today
I thank you Jon Olson

Not just for donating the money to Ablaze for a cure. Not for giving stuff away. But more for standing up and being loud passionate and talking traffic exchange.

Next post will be back to the good stuff that’s more traffic exchange-ish.

And that is my traffic exchange 2 cents
