App Trillionaires: How To Become An App Developer: Enjoy Life, Make Money, and Live Your Dreams! (2013)
2. IS THIS BOOK FOR YOU?
This book deals with technology and is geared towards those who like technology, and dare I say it, LOVE Technology! You may have heard from people who claim that you do not need to know programming nor even like computers to run an app business. Sure you can run this business without even touching a computer; however it is a very unrealistic approach to the Mobile App Business.
By reading this book you are looking at the possibility of starting a Mobile SOFTWARE Application Business that CREATES Mobile Applications. I can assure you, you require technology and a love for creating things. Programming will DEFINITLY come up along your path in this business!
If you hate technology and hate programming, well I won’t lie to you or lead you on. My full recommendation at this point if you fall into that category is to stop reading now and do yourself a favor and go find another business or profession. By you starting an app business with no love for technology or computers, you’d be better off taking your nest egg to Las Vegas or your local casino and you’d probably have a better chance of success there. That’s not to say that you can’t do it, you definitely can achieve anything you believe you can, but you’d have to develop a total love for technology and programming in order to make this business a true success.
I’ve seen too many people start this business with wrong impressions thinking that it’s really EASY MONEY or that it’s a business that they can outsource everything and put things on “Auto-Pilot”…HA!
No business can start without you actually taking steps towards running it and making it work. As I said earlier you get out of it what you put into it! YES there are special tools and methods that may make this business a bit easier or faster to run or get closer to “Auto-Pilot”, but you HAVE to do work to get them setup properly! You have to make the calls, you have to setup the accounts, you have to get the apps created, you have to keep your business up to date, you have to outsource and build the right team, etc.
Can you do this part time? SURE!
Can you do it full time? MOST DEFINITELY!
But can you do this on Auto-Pilot? Let me just suffice it to say that I have been in this business for several years now, and I can assure you there is no magic Auto-Pilot button out there, even though there are some tools and systems that help you to get CLOSE. This is a business at the end of the day and the faster you can get out of your head that this is some sort of Get-Rich-Quick scheme, the faster you’ll be on your way to true success.
Let me tell you something, you CAN make money while you sleep in this business, but it takes months if not years to setup correctly. It’s not something that just happens overnight. In fact if you research those who are overnight success stories, the interesting thing you may find is that those so called overnight success stories took years in the making. No success comes without a solid amount of work and dedication and persistence behind it backed by solid Faith and Belief!
Auto-Pilot is just not realistic in my opinion because you still need to take part in your business and not knowing technology or any programming at all when you’re running a SOFTWARE BUSINESS is definitely a whole load of nonsense!
How many SUCCESSFUL Real Estate agents do you know who know nothing about houses? How about SUCCESSFUL car salesmen who know nothing about a car? So how far do you think you’ll go in your new found App Business without knowing anything about Technology and SOFTWARE APPlications?
So if you are reading this thinking that you are going to make a quick buck and won’t have to lift a finger to do any work at all, then I’ve got news for you…THIS IS NOT A GET-RICH-QUICK-SCHEME! Get-Rich-Quick is something I like to call Get-Poor-Fast!
