Are you serious about starting an online business?
I know it sounds like a peculiar questions to ask but if truth be told there are more people who are NOT serious about starting an online business who just like to ‘act’ as though they are.; sadly, despite their obvious need to make some financial improvement to their current situation.
Sure, they surf the web, “looking” for ways to earn online… and in ‘some’ cases deep down they would like to… ‘sorta’…. But really what they’d rather do is simply ‘tickle’ their keyboard and ‘pretend’ to ‘act’ as if they’re willing to take the plunge… but the truth is, they’re not. (They can’t be!)
Course I can’t paint everyone with the same brush, as its obvious there definitely is the 3 % that do make the decision to step out and actually crack in, take action and get down to DOING something about it.
With that said the remaining 97% all have the same traits and would rather waste not only their own time… but the time of serious entrepreneurs who could help them make the changes they need.
I’ve logged many hours talking to that 97% as most of us have. Frankly it’s too frustrating, so I’ve long since stopped. I have simply come to the conclusion that many people who are in need of financial improvement are there for a reason and will likely stay there for the same reasons that landed them there in the first place.
I’m tired of hearing “I have no skills” or “I’m not skilled”… I’m tired of hearing “I’m not good at sales”… or “I have no experience marketing”
I’m tired of hearing “I’m not technical”, or “I have no money”…or hear them questioning the legitimacy of the industry.
So what? (I ask) What’s your point?
So you have no skills, or you’ve never marketed online before?
“Welcome to the club” I say!
Nobody is born with the engrained knowledge to market online, or do anything new for that matter. We all have to learn from scratch with any new task.
If you’ve had no experience marketing… or you have no money… then isn’t it time you started to change all that? I mean seriously?
As for ‘legitimacy’… sure there’s the odd twirp, the odd rip of and sure, there is definitely a fair share of hype.
The truth is though, there’s a difference. If you have half a shred of common sense and use our noggin, you should be able to tell the difference in most cases. There are definitely more decent people who add value online than there are scams.
I am firmly of the opinion that many people in that 97% simply have nothing better to do. They want to make it ‘look’ like they are serious about starting an online business’ but really they’d rather pad their comfort zone with pre loaded “excuses” Ive mentioned above… and that is why some never do!
Most of us who are already running a successful online business have started from exactly where you are (minus the excuses) and because of this… we have ‘chosen’ to offer services and coaching to help you get past all those learning curves. That is what many of us do.
We are not here to listen to your excuses, sob stories or anything else. We are simply here to give you the help you NEED to change your life so you can move forward to success.
If you are serious about starting an online business…
My advice to you is that if you see similarities in yourself and that 97% …but you are indeed serious about starting an online business … get off your duff and start doing it!
Don’t sit their thinking about all the things you feel you ‘can’t do’ or wouldn’t be good at!
Don’t keep repeating what you ‘don’t have’….or “have never done“. These thoughts will only breed the fear of failure… and likely keep you right where you are.
Starting an online business is one of the most affordable ways of changing your circumstances. If you are not satisfied with life and IF you really want to turn things around, then roll up your sleeves, cowboy up, pull on your big girl knickers or big boy undies and be prepared to learn the skills you need to get the show on the road to a brighter future.
Starting an online business will only improve your current circumstances if you are serious about making a go of it.
“Time” in my opinion is the crucial investment, but if you are willing to use it wisely to invest in yourself, you have the same chances of success as anyone else on the planet.
Stop thinking and start doing. That is the bottom line!
