How do you start building an online home based business?
The opportunity to start building an online home based business has existed since the internet went live, but where do you begin what can seem like a mammoth task?
You have to find the right opportunity, there are lots out there, but everything that glitters isn’t gold. You have to believe in what you’re promoting to others. People like people who are like them or are like they would like to be, so look for people who you want to be like and learn from them.
Choose products and services that you know work and are happy to endorse. A good reputation can take a life time to create and a moment to lose.
People fall in love with the dream and building an online home based business is definitely a dream worth falling in love with.
All dreams start in the place that you need to work on the most, your mind. Anything that’s changed in your life has only ever changed because of the way you’ve thought about it, building an online home based business is no different.
Society works hard to convince us that if we go to school and work hard to fit in then we can graduate, get a great job and have all our needs taken care of much like a child suckles it’s mother’s breast wanting to be cared for and fed.
This idealistic view of life needs to be smashed to pieces. It may be fine for some but if you’re someone looking at building an online home based business it’s totally wrong for you.
Do you have any idea how much employers pay you in relation to how much they make from you?
About 20-40%. Call it what you want but someone making around 60% from your labour in exchange for doing your taxes and telling you what to do doesn’t seem like a great deal to me.
What you do and don’t need for building an online home based business
Persistence – Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your business be. You have to get stuck in and stick with it. Even with the finest training and mentorship in the world you will still need to learn how to apply the knowledge that’s shared with you.
Willingness – We all want things but the difference between those who get them and those just window shop is the willingness to take the necessary steps.
Authority – You have to become an authority, someone who knows what they’re doing and knows what they’re talking about.
Faith – You have to believe it’s possible for you, in spite of what others may think or say about your decision to pursue your dream.
Investment – Very few businesses can start up without any capital but the good thing about getting started online is it’s a relatively low cost venture.
Education – When I say education I’m not saying you have to go to school. But you have to be able to spot an opportunity that’s a real diamond and not a fugazi. You can learn a lot through trial and error but in far less time you can learn from people who are already successfully doing it at the Digital Experts Academy.
School – If good grades were the definition of succeeding in life Richard Branson would be considered a massive failure as he dropped out of school at the age of 16. That’s not to say we’ll all be able to build an empire as large as his, but if we do it will likely come from the lessons we learn outside of a classroom not in one. If you can read and write you’re more than capable of building an online home based business.
Perfection – If you’re expecting to get everything right the first time every time you try something new you’re in for a big surprise. Failure is part of the process and part of you developing your mindset is about learning that. You’re going to mess up, so fail fast and fail forward. Take the lessons that come from what you try that doesn’t work and move on.
Experience – In order to be successful online you don’t need to be a keyboard wizard or have mastered every piece of software on the market or know how all the inner workings of your laptop come together to make the lights blink every time you push the on button. That’s not to say it wouldn’t help but it’s not essential. People have moved to English speaking countries having never spoken one word of the language and through their desire to learn they’ve been able to speak English more fluently than some English people. What you don’t know can be learned you just have to want it bad enough and do what it takes to get what you want.
Location – All you need to be successful is a laptop, internet connection and the willingness to invest in your education. You don’t have to be in a specific place at a specific time, you work wherever you want to work, whenever you want to work.
