What Do I Do Now?
by Chris Pickering | on June 29, 2012
I’m not here to answer that question for you. Sorry.
This post is in response to a growing number of questions from family, friends and ex-collegues regarding what do I do now … for a job.
Only this morning, in response to an FB post about how to make $150 from every $6 sale made, a friend asked, “What are you on about with this new business proposal? It sounds good, but also sounds like a scam Please tell me more…” (thanks Lauren)
This post will shed a bit of light on where I’m at and what I’m on about.
But let me say right off what I do not do.
I do not and will never sell, promote or recommend something that I have not tried and tested myself.
I do not sell hype and I do not recommend scams.
Everything I promote and recommend I have tried.
And everything I promote and recommend works for me.
So, Really, What Do I Do Now?
Straight up I’m an internet marketer. I promote products and services on the internet.
That’s the simple explanation.
But as I am learning every day being an internet marketer is a lot more complex, a lot more exciting and a lot more rewarding than just that, just promoting stuff on the internet.
Rewind quickly … bear with me, but you gotta know where I come from to understand where I’m going …
I’m an ex-investment banker – loved the challenge for a while, but hated the lack of control it afforded me over my life and my time. Financial freedom – sort of. Time freedom – zilch.
During my last 2 years as an investment banker I was constantly asking myself the same question, “What do I do now?” Because I didn’t like what I did and knew that there must be more to life than living the corporate rat race.
So I took a leap of faith and really started to research what it would take to be successful online. I knew a lot of people were making a killing online and I wanted to know what it was all about. I mean, if they can do it I can do it. Right?
Exactly What Do I Do Now?
I joined an MLM company through a friend and that set me off on this path.
But that was just the start, the tip of the iceberg.
After a few months in that business I started to run out of leads to grow the business and that got me asking the same question “what do I do now?” again.
So I did a bit more research, spoke to a few people and have discovered that the internet is a melting pot of fantastic income producing opportunities …
… mixed in with a healthy dose of total hype and complete scams!
I got caught up in a few of these “scams”, but never badly. I have always had the “cash back guarantee parachute” to pull -I’ve pulled it twice!
But I have also discovered that it is easy to make money online – if you know where to look, or what to do. It all comes down to EDUCATION.
What do I do now – For Me?
I invest in myself, my (online) education, my personal development and my future – by learning.
I have learnt more about myself in the last 6 months than the last 6 years. I have learnt more about the internet in the last 6 months … than ever before. And I have learnt what I need to do to make money online, and that it is not actually that difficult.
Most importantly, I have learnt that anything is possible as long as you have the desire, the right training, the right mindset and the right support.
What do I do now – for money?
A few things actually…

I am part of, and promote, an online advertising brokerage called Banners Broker. This is an excellent almost “set it and forget it” business. You can find out more details here.
I am part of a ‘movement’ called the Empower Network. Just click any of the banners around this post to find out more, or read my review here.
And I promote various online training courses and tools that I use to help run my business.
That’s about it. That my answer to “what do I do now”.
And I love what I do.
The real question is what are you going to do now?
