It's sad – in a funny, crazy way – what I see at this time of the year, every year.
As regular readers will know, Joanna and spend the southern summers in New Zealand, where we have friends and family.
We love being free to travel and able to work when and where we choose.
What's sad and frustrating is that it's this time of the year when old friends and family see us and are reminded of the plans they drew up last year.
They were going to be like us and have a business on the Internet.
They were going start a niche website and get a few extra dollars coming in – maybe even sack the boss eventually.
Oh, the dreams they had.
But it never happens!
They dream, and dream… They can SEE the dollars coming in. They know exactly what they're going to spend them on.
But they never actually take the first step.
So far this trip, we've seen three friends and relatives who were all fired up last year ready to do great things but now they became bogged down with their busy lives. Now they're looking back with disappointment over another wasted year.
In no time at all, next Christmas rolls around, they see Joanna and me again, sigh over the lifestyle and freedom that our Internet business gives us, and the whole sad process starts again.
I think part of the problem is the big unknown. When you're on the outside looking on, things often seem tougher than they really are.
The challenges look tough – so our friends and relatives don't even take the first step.
I sincerely hope that you, gentle reader, are not like that.
If you want to achieve great things, sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and try something totally new.
That's what I'm doing next year.
I'm setting myself some BIG goals for 2006.

The Site Build It! “Buy-1-Get-1 Free” is on again.
Be quick. It ends December 25. Grab it now.
Try something new. Take the first step…
OK. Back to giant leaps for readers like me who think really big…
One of the things I'm doing is sending my assistant, Jay Stockwell, half way round the world to Yanik Silver's Underground seminar, so he can listen to millionaires and learn from them.
This isn't one of those BS “seminars” which are thinly disguised pitch fests. Seen them. Hate them.
I've been listening to the tapes of last year's Underground seminar, so I know you'll be staggered by the value that Yanik's speakers provide.
As Yanik says, this is definitely NOT the same “Usual Suspects” you see speaking anywhere else. In fact, you've probably never heard of this unusual bunch of “doers”.
Here are their code names. You'll find out their true identities and stories on the site:
Agent eBay High Roller…
Agent Content is King Kaching…
Agent AdSense Young Gun…
Agent Moonlighting Moneymaker…
Agent High Priced Sales Galore…
Agent Ms. Microniche Millions…
Agent Mr. H…
Agent eBook Hotshot…
Agent Recurring Revenue Renegade…
Agent Dealmaking Master…
Agent Quickie Profits &…
Agent Listbuilding Maestro
Agent Recurring Revenue Renegade
Collectively and conservatively these “mystery” men and women bring in over $94M in revenue online a year. If you could pick up just a fraction of this knowledge – what would that be worth to you?
Think about that. I am.
If you hurry, you may still be able to catch the early-bird special. Even if you miss the early-bird special, don't miss this one-off, really special seminar. Go anyway. There's nothing sadder than regret over missed opportunities.
Think big. Take a giant leap forward…[UPDATE: This offer sold out. Yanik now has a superb physical newsletter, Maverick Business Insider, which contains in-depth interviews with Maverick entrepreneurs. He launched it with a fantastic introductory offer – the first edition FREE. All you pay is postage and handling. Plus he's giving away his superb “34 Rules for Maverick Entreprenurs” book and other goodies. Here's my review of Maverick Business Insider.]
Thought for today: Think big
