I know I may be stubborn from time to time but if networkers always continue to call what they do for "playing games" all the time, we will never see a change to what at least I and many other networkers want to call it, namely business.
My business? Creative Marketing Concept!
This is important cause how you treat and what you decide to call what you are doing online will define your efforts and will define if you are taking your business seriously or not.
So far in online business we have seen many models with different names and I suppose if a founder wants to "play games" his program will look like that and that might be exciting for many, but it isn´t a business because of that.
On the other side, if a founder of a certain program define the program as her business, that will define it and I would think that you got the point now!
"Playing games-programs" are for the most very short term in the motives and structure, while real businesses are built up as solid and long term programs.
How do you want the future of online business to be?
Do you want to play games, or do you want to build a solid business? The choice is yours.
The ones, including me who are building businesses are also branding ourselves very obvious with honest motives and not dubious motives....
The victims? Who are they? We have all lost money here and there, but we learn with experience to chose the right programs who at least have a bigger potential to be online longer.
But I sure can tell you that I have picked winners as well and have got my fair share in that kind of better programs as well:)
