“Where do I begin?”
Wonder no more – this is where you start!
You want to make money online and you have no clue where to begin.
First, you need to understand this:
There are plenty of successful and profitable business owners to support every argument imaginable about the best way to start an online business. There is no one best or universal way to begin. If you ask successful online marketers where to start, you will get many varied answers:
- Go with what I am doing – it’s working for me
- Go with your passion
- Go with what has been successful for other people
- Go with what you already know (your education)
- Go with your past training and work experience
- Become a student of a niche and learn as you go
- Choose what is currently popular and trending
- Go with what your market research tells you is in demand
- Ask on the Warrior Forum (or other public forums) “What are the best niches?”, then go for it
- Go where you see the most competition – it’s where the money is
- Do whatever you want and just fake it till you make it
- Buy this e-book or special course – we have the secret for your success
There will be other starting points offered as well . . .
No matter how you choose to begin, there will be plenty of proponents of that method as well as nay-sayers that argue for a better or more enlightened approach.
So why all the confusion? Why is there no consensus?
Know this: any approach can work and has worked for someone in the past. At the same time, any approach can be a total failure for you and has been a failure for others in the past.
So where does that leave us?
Well, first of all, we know that simply asking “What is the best way to start?” is not a good question.
Why? Because every answer you get could be right or it could be wrong, depending upon . . . well . . . depending upon YOU.
You are the single most important ingredient or variable that makes all the difference in the world when answering the question “What is the best way to start?”
Here’s the thing . . .
Every entrepreneur is different. We all bring widely varying backgrounds, training, education, experience, resources, temperament and business-needed skills to the table.
Every entrepreneur has one or more specific reasons, or goals, or ambitions for wanting to make money online – and there’s a good chance mine are quite different from yours.
Every entrepreneur has a different work ethic, different attention span, different levels of persistence to call upon, different propensities for things like routine execution tasks, writing, communicating with clients, handling rejection, creativity, and analyzing problems.
Every entrepreneur has different amounts of time for running a business, money he can use to get started, tolerance for risk, and varying levels of support or antagonism from spouses, family members, significant others, mentors, friends, etc.
The only thing that really matters for someone starting out . . . is what pertains in their own case – their own circumstance.
What someone else did, or is doing, or can do in the future will be totally dependent on their own circumstances at the time.
So many people ask about making money online . . . “What works best?” “How are you making money?” “What’s the best business for me to start?”
There is no good answer until YOU and your talents and skills and inclinations are included in the discussion. And that is the part that almost always gets left out! What do you bring to the table?
I get it that newbies feel they need to rely on others with experience to guide them – it’s a seemingly logical starting point.
In practical terms, however, starting a business is less about what others are doing and mostly about what can (and will) you do?
How can you start a business that takes advantage of and caters to your own personal circumstances . . . not what has been working for someone else at a completely different starting point with their own unique background, resources, skills, education, work ethic and all the rest.
Always remember this . . . YOU are the business. What can you do?
To your online business success,
