As the owner of an Internet law firm, let me play Devil’s Advocate…

Is the real “you” for sale? If so, how much do you want for your integrity?

Don’t take it personally. Almost every major Internet info product marketer sells themselves these days. I’m just playing the numbers by asking what your sales price happens to be.

Let’s call it “Hidden Continuity of the Soul.” With each dishonest transaction, you throw in a little piece of your ethics as a bonus.

If I buy your get-rich-quick product that doesn’t work, how much of you do I get with it? Frankly, it ought be worth at least 10 minutes of lost sleep. How about a deep sense of shame when you look at yourself in the mirror. You can still do that, right?

Or have you done it for so long that there’s simply nothing left to sell? There’s no “you” left.

If that’s the case, I guess that congratulations are in order. You’ve become a sociopath. You’re the dream defendant when an Internet law firm gets involved on behalf of someone you’ve screwed.

At that point, you’ll be able to justify any means to accomplish your ends in Internet marketing. Because there’s no substance left, like a chameleon you’ll be able to change your public face quickly to sell big ticket items of little value.

From “Good Christian” to “Rebel Stoner” the possibilities are endless because you know that there’s more than one sucker born per minute. When in Rome, you’re a Roman. The money, not the man behind the mask, is what counts.

Because everything comes with a price, ask yourself this question? Did I get a reasonable return on my investment? Has it really been worth it to you?

If not, you probably owe some apologies. Start with yourself. How could you sell your integrity so cheaply? Then apologize to your victims…and get out of Internet marketing.

Now if you haven’t sold your integrity, let me congratulate you.

What do you think of this issue?
