I wish I had a dollar for every time I've been asked that question.
Before I give you the answer, let me give you some cold, hard facts.
Fully 95% of people that try to make a living from the internet fail. I'm not talking about making an income, but a living. Why? Various reasons. What's the main one? They don't know how. Their heart is in the right place, they have the incentive and reasons – they just don't know what they're doing. It's no more complicated than that.
That's also why these let's say, disreputable companies, can relieve so many people of their hard earned cash simply by promising to show them the bright burning path, but they always leave parts of the road map out. Just enough to keep you coming back. Believe me, I know. .
There's a reason why I put my post "A concept to get almost anything accomplished" up early on. Hopefully you read it and it started you thinking.
The answer to the first question is actually two. Terror and Confidence.
Terror-being so afraid you may fail that you won't. You don't have the weekly paycheck coming in to rely on. You have to count on yourself completely. So it's very good to know what you're doing.
Confidence-in yourself to continue making a living with your business as it evolves and so do you and love what you do.
I was given a little nugget of information early on that I'd like to share: Treat it like a business, not a hobby. Simple, succinct and to the point.
I'm offering you a chance to learn how to start and run your own internet business in this post. I'll also tell you this is the course I took years ago and I still use today to find answers because it's constantly updated. When I took it, it was called the Insider Secrets Course.
The course is now called the Step by Step Guide to Selling Online. A short summary for this is on the Business and Product reviews page.
The reason I started this blog was to give people a way to make an informed decision . If you're a current reader, you know I don't sugar coat things and I come to the point quickly. You also know that I'll only share what I've personally used and can recommend as the best out there.
Let me be blunt: I don't care if you invest in everything I suggest on this blog or nothing at all.. I'm just giving you the truth about what works and what doesn't and you can make your own decisions. I feel something as important as learning how to start your business and change your future is pretty important. If you don't know what the hell you're doing, how can you possibly be successful ?
I'd like to ask a favor though. If you do take the course, please send me a testimonial with your link when your business is up and running. I'd like to post it here on the blog
