Starting An Online Business Is Hard Work…But Rewarding!
I hate to break it to you, but starting an online business really is hard work.
And especially when just starting out.
I think many people have a fantasy of everything going just perfectly and cash flowing into their online accounts.
Unfortunately, you will hit bizarre obstacles along the way and many of them.
For example, even though I’ve been in the Internet Marketing industry for quite some time now, this week I ran into a major road block.
This had to do with my solo ad business and more importantly with 4 live customer orders going on.
Basically to cut a long story short, I had a major “outage” in the middle of some very important orders, that caused me to have to scramble to figure out a solution.
And guess what, I didn’t find a solution until after almost all of my orders were complete.
Meaning that I lost a chunk of money on these runs.
Now this isn’t meant to sound like I’m complaining, but more to highlight that starting and maintaining an online business is always going to present its challenges.
Which is the reason why 97% of people quit after the first few months.
However, the ones that ride the wave so to speak and adopt a relentless mindset are the ones that see impactful results.
To be frank, starting an online business is really hard work and especially for beginners.
It can feel like climbing a giant mountain.
But what’s the alternative…
Working a job that you hate for the rest of your life?
Struggling to pay the bills each month?
Having zero freedom in your life?
Let me also be clear…starting a successful online business CAN be accomplished.
I just want to be as realistic as possible so you don’t feel like you’ve been hit by a brick, if you decide you want to try.
With that being said, it is 100% worth taking a stab at starting up a side hustle.
With everything you do comes learning and with every failure comes extensive growth.
My first few attempts at starting an online business went very unsuccessfully, but the main advantage I had compared to many others is that I was STUBBORN!
Yes being stubborn is an advantage in business.
I did NOT give up.
And I tell you what, I learned more and more each and everyday I worked at my online ventures.
In fact, I became addicted, obsessed and a little crazy on seeing results.
Until things finally started happening for me.
It began with affiliate marketing, then a little bit of network marketing, then blogging, then solo ads and now I’m working on an E-commerce store.
Almost all of the online business models I mentioned above still to this day generate cash flow for me.
The sacrifice and failure I experienced when first starting out (and still do today) was all worth it in the end.
More problems, issues and unexpected annoyances will be sure to smack me around bit in the near future and I’m ready for it…and I want you to be too.
Too many times, this industry is loaded with attractive money screenshots and dream lifestyle videos…Where I like to take the more realistic approach so you’re not disappointed when you get cracking.
This WILL take work…However, the rewards can be priceless!
Now that you realize that starting an online business isn’t just a walk in the park, I still encourage you to get started…and as soon as you can.
This post was more meant to weed out the lazy people that truly aren’t ready for the responsibilities of starting an online business.
If you’ve read this far, kudos to you.
You are probably the exact type that will be very successful in whatever you do.
So let me ask you, is there anything I can help you with?
