Where to start? Which business to choose? What direction to take? These are all the questions flooding through my mind as I decided to embark on the online business journey. It is not unfamiliar to experience doubts, tension and suspicion about the various companies currently marketed online today as many make promises they can’t keep.
It is like the ongoing reference of making millions in 24 hours with no effort. Realistically no one can make millions without any effort involved. Many online businesses promise consumers a get rich quick scheme that details the affiliate having to provide little effort and receive large commissions. Through experimenting and falling into the trap myself I experienced very little, if any, commissions from such companies and lost a large amount of money in the process.
Soon enough I learnt that working from home can be accomplished however it involves participating within the right businesses and communicating with the right mentors. Having a sponsor available to help you every step of the way within building your online business is crucial if you want to succeed. A sponsor can not only provide advice on how to market your consumers, however more often than not they have experienced the internet business for longer and have the knowledge to direct you in making the right decisions for the long term. This is important because if you are truly interested in working from home you will want to make decisions and investments for the long run in order to experience the financial freedom one dreams about.
Discipline, Attitude and Effort are the three traits that are essential in creating a business that will succeed. You do NOT want to go spending money left, right and centre because you believe it will bring you more prospects. You do NOT want to possess a negative attitude and simply believe that working from home is not possible or that you will never achieve financial freedom.
Lastly you do NOT want to start out in this business with the idea that it takes little effort to achieve large results. Yes there will be sponsors, mentors and programs available to help you and reduce some effort within your online business; however it is through your time management, your 100% effort and your willingness to succeed that will truly define your career path. If you undertake your business properly consumers will come to you.
You should not have to seek or hunt down consumers or people to invest in your business. “The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself”. (Peter F. Drucker 1909-, American Management Consultant). This quote is very important. Read it again and again until you fully realize the significance. For your business to reach its full potential your product or service must meet the consumers needs or desires and consequently the prospects or leads will come to you.
But in order to start an online business in the first place you need a large amount of skills right? WRONG! This is completely 100% false. To start out working online you truly need to only possess the two traits of a positive attitude and strong discipline. Skills, techniques and marketing ideas are learnt throughout the process of building your business. By having a sponsor, you can easily learn the relevant skills required to work successfully online.
If you feel you deserve to experience financial freedom, acquiring new knowledge, meeting new people, helping others as well as yourself to succeed then you defiantly deserve to work online!
Remember…it is through discipline, attitude and effort that will truly define your long term career path. Work SMART, not HARD!
