I Joined A Business Opportunity…But It Didn’t Make Me Any Money

17 Flares Filament.io 17 Flares ×

I hear this all the time…

People emailing me telling me about how they joined one program or another but failed to make any money because of “The Program”.

Heck, I used to be the same way…

I probably joined (and failed at) at lease 2 or 3 dozen business opportunities before I FINALLY figured out how to make money in my online home business.

It took me well over 5 years before I discovered “The Secret”.

Click “PLAY” on the video below to discover what I FINALLY learned


REMEMBER – Buying into ANY business opportunity will only give you the TOOLS, the PLAN, and the SHORTCUTS to success. But YOU still have to do the work and put forth the effort. After all, it’s YOUR business…isn’t it?


Hopefully you found today’s video informative/helpful 🙂

And hopefully you understand today’s lesson about how JOINING a business opportunity does not somehow ENTITLE you to make money in that opportunity.

And it takes more than just trying once or twice…or staying focused for a WHOPPING 3 weeks if you want to achieve the financial freedom you say you want.

As Always…

    Hey Devon

    That was awesome! I’m not making money online but I know it’s because I haven’t done what countless gurus has told me to do. I am aware its not because I don’t have the knowledge or desire, I just lack the funds to buy traffic. I’m not at all disappointed that I haven’t made money online because I have gained knowledge. Maybe once my job situation changes I’ll actually be able to implement what I’ve learned from you and various other people.

    Devon, As always I enjoy your somewhat brutal honesty. Thanks for ths…we’ve all fallen victim to the “I made ovr $900 in less than 2 days; You can too!!!” hypes.

  4. Devon,

    This was really so on point. I have started to learn I just need to keep my head down and just keep working. I decided to FOCUS and stay the course. I’ve definitely seen it work in my life. This was a great refresher thought for me.

    And oh, here’s a line you can use… “If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!”

    That pretty much summarizes what I got from you.

    Can’t wait to see you next Tuesday!

  5. Hello Devon,
    I actually faced up to the idea that the programs aren’t the problem, it’s me, a good while back. Now I need to learn how to get the traffic to convert. Not to worry, I’ll never give up. Doing both Free and Paid Traffic. One’s, more expensive than the other so the expensive one gets done less.

  6. Hi Devon,

    Very well put in your video, your analogy on weight loss an likening it to IM is very apt, I wrote an article along similar lines and posted it on my blog about a week ago (my analogy was fishing, similar activity requiring patience to see results)

    Yes, making an investment in anything is never any guarantee of results and all those proof of earnings claims and screenshots (when they are genuine) only proves that the person in question did quite well with it and really all you say about those is to give them a pat on the back and say well done you!

    Sure it does show that whatever they did actually returned results so the system they used definitely shows good potential but that’s all it is – potential, and can never be viewed as a guarantee that any and everyone else will do the exact same, but then you never know, you might not do as well but then you might do even better, it all depends on the wants and needs of the people that you offer it to.

    But then, you should first find the people who have disposable income, then ask them what they want and are willing to spend their money on and then go find it for them (or preferably make it yourself) and then sell it to them (directly or as an affiliate), after all if those people want something badly then they’ll buy it from someone so why not make that someone you.

    Hope this helps

    Hey Devon,

    Congratulations!!! That is the best explanation I have ever heard of the process of business. Not only the internet business but of daily business as a whole. You can have the best traffic in the world with money in their pockets to spend but….If they are not in the purchase mood….They will not buy and that is why we advertise over and over and over. Just to keep the flow going. Because eventually they will buy. The predictability of the buyer in the daily marketplace is very, very fickle and one must be prepared for this to happen. Daily disappointment is a platitude of doing business. It is really a pity that more people who venture into business do not prepare for this aspect. What they do is give up from disappointment just before the stampede of buyers crests over the hill. I was in a business venture for several years and invariably this is what occurred repeatedly. It is really a shame that knowledgeable people do not look into the complete picture of business prior to venturing into it with a half picture.

    Devon. You are so right great advice,but what stops me most often is the know how,Im just not up on what to do to get results I want.

  14. 8:45 pm on March 12, 2013

    OMG Devon so brutally honestly true! I’ve been that person to. But your teachings are the best there is. I’ve been with you a few months now. No money yet Can’t wait to send out my first broadcast for web copy cat affialiate! Others have always left something out. You leave nothing out. After 3 yrs I honestly understand it all. You should have put this at the end of your lessons! Some set backs here so I’m still trying to keep up the monthly subscription. To me this is like taking a bussiness course.
    I did your 24 hr challenge. on a 1,000 clicks got 10 only Some still coming through. lol how do ppl get that 100 Fivrr didn’t work out well Oh well will try again.
    Where you ever on Paula Dean cookin show? If you weren’t you gotta twin! Love yah..That’s my poker face.

  15. As we say in church, “Preach on preacher!!!” 😉

    Your message was spot on. BTW, I’ve fallen into this trap. DUH. No big surprise here.

    As always, thanks for providing the insights you do. I’ve learned a LOT from your videos and your mentoring.

    Now where was I? Oh yeah, gotta get some more solos. 🙂


  16. Hey, Devon, you are totally right. I liked the best that you must do something without expectation, and later you will be surprised.
    It is like in the Bhagavad Ghita…
    Super, thanks for this fiery video.

  17. 7:18 pm on March 13, 2013

    Good to hear from you Devon
    I can relate to your past, unfortunately I am still there
    Blew out family’s savings on ????
    I have worked hard to no avail my friend
    Money is gone and hopefully not my marriage
    Thanks for keeping in touch

    Hey Devon, You are a pussy cat and i’m not offended. But what you say is spot on. There are so many variables in this game. It is a numbers game and you need to play it. If you have an outrageous personality it helps. Leap as far as you can out of your comfort Zone and work really hard. Test,test and test again. Then work harder , then test more. Put your face out there, doesn’t matter if you’re ugly, be funny. engage the customer and tell it like it is. Who is going to sell you a system to make $ 1.000,000 overnight for $ 97.00 would you ? But they could sell you a system that if implemented could earn that much over the long haul.
    People think success comes overnight with little or no work, pressing a few buttons, but you and I know it takes months of work to press that button ( Broadcast ) to bring in the riches overnight.
    That was a good rant Devon which I enjoyed and yes the truth does hurt. But nobody would make a sale if they included the rant in their sales pages. Good straight shootin’ , give yourself a pat on the back.

    Hello Devon,

    Devon at his best again. You are trying to ‘poo-poo. the expectation of ‘Instantaneous

    Gratification” which is ingrained in all American education.

    Your explanation was outstanding. As you know, a percentage will never believe you.

    Good Job!

    thank you

    Hi Devon,

    Your video was well taken in the sense we must all realize we are responsible for our actions, for if we purchase a product and it turns out to be not what we expected we right away want a refund, right?.
    Well, first of all did we really check out the product to see if it was what we needed or if it was something that I could use without any trouble.
    Most of us don’t do this and just like any business venture you have to work at it in order to make any money and that takes time and money nothing is free.
    What you expressed in your video should be taken as a wake up call for those who got involved in any online business and it didn’t work right away. We blamed the business and quit.
    It is going to take some effort if you want to make the business work so you must learn this if you want to make any income.
    I just joined your Easiest System Ever and look forward to help it make some real money for me. I know your staff is going to do most of the work and this is the key but I must do my part also to help the business succeed.
    Your a straight shooter in what you say and that makes you a person to be trusted, so keep up the good work and those that don’t like what you have to say. maybe they should take a hard look at them selves and face realty.
    God Bless!


  21. Devon,

    Thanks for the opportunity. I just joined. When I first started in sales 37 years ago my trainer took me door to door and taught me a work ethic. He also said everyone has different results, but they all get results. Measure yours and then just keep repeating what your doing. You cannot fail if you do not quit. Thanks for the reminder. And I am looking forward to learning from you as I don’t know my ass from a hole in the ground about internet marketing.

    Sounds about right!

  23. 10:30 pm on March 13, 2013


    You hit the nail right on the head! I couldn’t have agreed with you more! In summary, what you said is stay CONSISTENT and NEVER GIVE UP and eventually the results will come. It may take 3 months or 3 years or more but as long as you stay the course, your goals are achievable! Thank you for the video!

  24. Hi Devon:

    You’re absolutely right of course. What amazes me is how many people there are who believe once you pay for a program it all ends there, that it will somehow magically make you money. In fact, the work just begins with promoting the business day in and day out, and if you are REALLY serious the spending just begins as you will need to buy quality traffic. Free traffic helps but it won’t do the whole job, unless you are an SEO geek who can figure it all out yourself and get loads of quality organic traffic. –Mike Funston

    I’ve seen many of your videos in the past. This one made the biggest impact to date. This is how a review should be done. Yeah I’m sure you could have hyped the program up and made yourself some money at the expense of those caught up in the moment, but you chose not to. It’s refreshing to hear someone speak the truth. thanks…

  26. Great post. Your a stand up guy. Leaders should be more truthful with people signing up for their offers. Some people offer the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,if leaders would just be honest with costomers like you are ,that it takes commitment, great work ethics, and yes money. So thanks for being straight with us , everyone should take note and tell your prospects, costomers,TEAM what it takes to succeed. Truth is AWESOME even if it’s not what we want to hear.

  27. 9:04 pm on March 19, 2013

    Hey Devon,
    It;s straight i ;ve learned a lots from you but is there any online business that you can pay later as soon as you can already make money? cause, more people wanted to do a Home Bisiness but they dont have the Capital to invest as what you say (s) that its not a guarantee to buy any of them , If you can advive us some online business that we can pay later then its the most be most people are looking for. Please advice. and let me know.

    Thank you so much and I am looking forward to hear from you soon ,

    ” I spent therefore I should make’ Tera’s words of wisdom. Well said

    Again as Devon has always done with his videos, he tells the straight truth. I will only be successful if I diligently provide the blood , sweat and tears. I must stay the course. I will not be rich by ‘Next Thursday;

    Devon, thank you for your time & realistic information

  29. 6:10 pm on April 20, 2014
