An Honest Week’s Pay For An Honest Day’s Work

Written by George Manty  · December 2, 2008

In the movie Sergeant Bilko, comedian Steve Martin says,

All I’ve ever wanted was an honest week’s pay for an honest day’s work.

If you are like most people, you want the same thing! I am going to let you know the one business success factor that is most likely to help you achieve that dream in 2009.

Essentially, this is the most important thing for you to do in 2009.

What is it?


That’s it. The most important thing for you do to succeed in your business is to Focus!

Focus is one of the biggest issues that many of us face in modern society. In fact, the extremely popular Internet marketing guru, Rich Schefren, has been talking a lot about the huge roadblock that a lack of focus causes for most would-be Entrepreneurs.

You have to focus to achieve your goals.

So what do you mean by “focus”?

Many of us check our email too many times a day, spend too much time on social networks, spend too much time reading blogs, spend too much time texting our friends and not enough time focusing on what we want to accomplish. We get distracted all the time and don’t focus on accomplishing our goals. Those are some of the ways that a lack of focus hurts are business efforts. However, there is another way a lack of focus hurts us. Let me use my own business as an example of this.

This past year I have been focusing on personal and spiritual growth and I have not been focused on making my business succeed. This has been really good for me, and I recommend that you never neglect the rest of your life to achieve your business goals. However, last month I started making plans for making my online business more profitable in 2009. I wrote down my list of plans and they looked something like this:

1. Create some websites in a specific non-Internet marketing niche that I am familiar with and then move on to create some sites in another niche I am interested in (I am not naming the niches for competitive reasons).
2. Finish creating a coaching program in the Internet marketing niche (I am more than half way finished with the curriculum).
3. Create a website for the business that my kids want to start and work with them on it.
4. Start another online business in the Internet marketing niche.

My plan was to focus on each plan one at a time, which sounded good in theory, but…

I told one of my friends here in Houston about my plans and he essentially said:

“George you need to FOCUS! I focus on ONE niche and that’s how I dominate it.”

Now before I go on, I need to point out that my friend makes a lot of money in the niche he is in. It isn’t p@rn, gambling or prescription drugs. And it’s not in the Internet marketing / make money online niche. While I don’t want to reveal exact numbers, let’s just say it’s over $50,000/month. In other words, he knows what he’s talking about.

You ever wonder why more people like him don’t get into the Internet marketing niche?


You wonder why so many people in this industry only make money selling Internet marketing/make money online products and services to other people?


To succeed you need to focus on dominating a niche.

That’s not to say you can’t work on more than one niche. In fact, when you start out you might want to try out a few different niches until you find a niche that you want to dominate. Once you find that niche, focus on it. Then you will be on your way to making an honest week’s pay for an honest day’s work.

    I was wondering if you could look at my blog. In Feb. a man named George Balek advised me to make a blog to show people who I am. I met a lady through cafe mom who says the same thing. I have the blog, still really not selling anything. I really want to help people the right way.Will my keywords get picked up by google or do i have to pay for that? I don’t quite understand it. How can I let people know about my blog? I have put it on facebook etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! I am going to do the simple postcards and pass out cds. I

    I would like to add a couple of ingredients to your recipe for success. The first one is planning. You need a workable plan to succeed. The second ingredient is skill set. You need to develop the skills necessary to implement your plan and the focus to see it through.

    You are correct. There are a lot of other important factors in achieving business success.

    George, you’ve listed out the main point here, and it’s all about “Focus!” Once we lose our focus and concentration, then you’ll soon loss the income as well!

    I agree. It is extremely important to focus on dominating a niche. It is as essential to do the required research in finding a lucrative niche….
