Are You Committed to Success Online?
Reaching success online as a small business owner is not a guarantee but more the result of a long process!
As true as it may be that you can work at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home this doesn't mean you don't have to invest the time! In fact as already mentioned above internet marketers typically face much competition therefore you'll likely have to log many hours simply to stay competitive! If you already hold down a 'day' job and are trying to branch out on your own as a small business owner this means your days and nights will be that much longer!
Less 'Play' Time
The time you would normally 'devote' to hobbies, friends and even (yikes) family will need to be 'borrowed' for your new business! The dreams of achieving financial freedom are NOT without sacrifice, even on the internet, and if you intend to turn a profit you better be ready to make these sacrifices! There's a saying and it's so true that there are no free lunches, so don't assume working online will be any different! Just as important will be that those around you are aware and respect that you'll need space and privacy to pursue your goals! Likely it will be up to you to 'train' these people that you are working and are therefore not available to do otherwise!
An Army of ONE
Many frustrations you experience will have to be shouldered by only you since, if you remember, this was your idea! Along those same lines you'll need to pick yourself up and dust yourself off WITHOUT the encouragement, in many cases of others! Internet marketers normally work by themselves without a lot of support and fanfare and therefore need to be VERY self motivated! Are you? I hope so!
Success online as a small business owner is not a granted right but rather the reward for much hard work and sacrifice! The misconception by many that internet marketers don't work hard helps feed the assumption that becoming successful online is relatively easy! With all the competition you face due to the 'global' expanse of the online community you will in fact need to work hard in order to turn a profit!The upside is that internet marketers who demonstrate tenacity will also experience the financial freedom sought by so many but realized by so few! Does this sound like you?
