Is it really So Flippin’ Easy to make money online? The answer to that is yes…and no. IF you have a clear picture of what you want, stay focused on that goal, learn what you need to know to reach that goal, and then execute your plan, then it really isn’t that hard.
I started this website to help online entrepreneurs learn how to create a very good online business. I have come to the conclusion that IF you really KNOW what you want, I mean a well-defined idea of what you want, and you take appropriate action to reach your goal, you can kiss your 9 to 5 goodbye in less than one year!
If it is so easy, then why do so many fail to succeed you may ask? (40 million come and go each year…)
A reasonable question indeed!
I think it is the fact that there are so many variables. There are literally thousands of combinations of ways to earn money online. You can choose to work in any number of niches, from Affiliate Marketing to Weight Loss.
You could go the eCommerce route with an Amazon or Shopify store. And the list goes on and on!
You need to establish a clear goal and maintain your focus on that goal. You need to really define how you want to proceed before you get swallowed up in what we call Bright Shiny Object Syndrome. Sound silly?
Really, it does exist, and it probably affects at least 99% of those that have failed in online marketing! I am a recovering BSOS addict, and slip now and then because surely that Bright Shiny Object will help me in my business.
There are countless stories told by those that have succeeded in making HUGE incomes, of how they struggled for months, and more often years before that AHA moment came, and it all clicked and the pieces fell into place for them.
And there are successful Internet Entrepreneurs from all around the world! As long as you have the Internet, a valid plan, the determination to succeed, along with the willingness to take appropriate action, your dreams really can come true.
Successful entrepreneurs have come from the ranks of housewives, truck drivers, carpenters, accountants, school teachers, retirees, and any other profession you could imagine. If they can do it, then SO CAN YOU!
Yes, if you are going to succeed you have to develop the right mindset. No one is going to just hand you your success, you are going to have to earn it. You have to consider this venture as a business.
While you can be wise in how you spend your money, the reality is that you will have to invest some money to get started. You can minimize the amount of cash investment by putting in your time and earn ‘sweat equity’, but the cold hard truth is that if you want that jump start, it will take an investment of cash too.
In another lifetime I was an excavation contractor. I was very good at it, built a solid reputation and was able to get good jobs and lots of referrals. I was able to lease a backhoe for $1200 per month. I then needed a bulldozer, and that cost me $2000 per month.
Of course, I had to have liability insurance and insurance on the equipment. I had dump trucks and trailers that I had to buy, insure, and maintain. And then there were the expenses of employees and their insurance, and then there were the taxes.
I think you get the picture. It cost me a lot of money to be in business! As I recall, about $8,000 a month! I enjoyed the work and made some money, but it took a lot of investment and risk!
Getting started in online marketing has cost me far less, is much easier on my body, and the return on my investment… well there is no comparison.
The reality is that if I had a clear picture of what I wanted when I started and a well-defined road map of how I was going to get there, I would have far fewer Bright Shiny Objects that I will likely never use. LOL!
I would also have started making money much sooner.
I had no intention of this blog post becoming a coaching session. There will be a time and a place for that. But not now.
I really want to help others to not fall into the traps into which many have fallen, including myself.
Yes, if you want my help, I will present offers to you that I TRULY feel will help you to succeed. Yes, I will be selling products that I own, have reseller rights to, or will be receiving an affiliate commission on the sales.
I have to eat too, but I will do my best to give you my honest assessment of how this will help you achieve YOUR goals. I do not want to sell anything that will benefit me without giving you an honest value as well!
Now, no matter how well defined your goal, you will get absolutely nowhere without taking decisive action! I will make myself available to answer your questions and help you define your goals, and assist you in any way I can.
To your success!
I can be reached at email@example.com and I truly want you to find that success you seek!
