Let Go Of The “Get Rich Quick” Mentality When Creating Online

  • 2 min read

and grow slowly.

Personally, I think it’s important to let go of the “get rich quick” mentality.

This toxic mentality is stopping so many incredible creators before they even have a chance to succeed online.

I love this often quoted anecdote from Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) and Warren Buffet (the formerly richest man in the world):

Jeff Bezos once asked Warren Buffett:

“You are the second richest man in the world and yet you have the simplest investment thesis. How come others didn’t follow this?”

To which Warren Buffett responded:

“Because no one wants to get rich slowly.”

20 months ago, I started with zero followers, earnings and views.

Today, I earn 4 digits monthly, have 6K followers, and around 50K views per month.

Six years, my husband Patrick God started creating online courses.

After our baby was born (2021), he started a YouTube channel to offer free educational content.

Today, he has around 25K subscribers on YouTube, helped 70,000 students on Udemy, and owns a 6-figure business.

It’s the baby steps we take every single day as part-time creators.

Becoming a parent and seeing the world through different eyes has really impacted our creative journey in a positive way.

In fact, spending quality time with the family and living a life by the sea, is the motivation that keeps us going.

It’s the baby steps we take every single day as part-time creators that are helping us to achieve our goals.

It’s the concept of “Slow Growth” that pushes our online businesses further.

If you fail today, it does not matter.

What matters is that you keep at it until two (or more) years from now.

Focus on the end result.

Find your motivation.

Don’t let how long or what it takes stop you.

Key Message: Decide you’re going to get THERE. The rest is simply about figuring out HOW. It’s important to focus on your goal and be very specific.
