A Dose Of The Truth About Home Biz!
by George Pierce
More and more people dream of working from home. I hope that your dream becomes a reality. Let's take a cold hard look at what you might be getting yourself into.
If you are considering working on the Internet as a home business, you may have some false assumptions. This is not your fault. Unscrupulous Internet Marketers work hard to paint an unrealistic picture of how easy and lucrative working from home on the Net can be. You may have been led to believe that you will not only get rich, but also your riches will happen almost over night.
The financial potential is not a lie and is beyond belief. I'll share some of the reason why, below. The fact that Internet Marketing is easy is not exactly a lie. I believe that anyone can learn this 'stuff'. It does, however, take time to learn, so it is not going to happen over night.
A DOSE OF THE TRUTH!
If you have aspirations about creating an online income, then you are a target. Much of what you will find about working at home as an Internet Marketer is aimed at selling you something, so the truth is often omitted, inflated, bent, or missing. Usually you get HALF the story...the good half...the negatives are almost always omitted.
"Working at home" as an Internet Marketer (IM), is an Internet niche that is highly exploited!
You may have been led to believe that you can create wealth working from home a few minutes or a few hours per day or per week.
Can you make money as an Internet Marketer? Of course! You can actually make more money than you can believe possible, but not over night and not without a serious investment of time, effort, and some money.
An important plus is that you can start with little or no investment and make things work on a limited budget.
If you are considering becoming an Internet Marketer (IM), I sincerely want you to follow your dream.
Someone, however, needs to help you to be able to pursue your online home based business opportunity with your eyes open. So let's begin by looking at BOTH the positives and the negatives of a home based Internet Marketing dream.
What are some of the challenges, obstacles, and hardships that you will face.
There are a lot of doors that you will need to learn how to open. Although you cannot learn everything at once, you can learn how to open one door at a time. I feel you should be aware of all these doors, which at first may seem daunting, but in time, all these doors become more and more opportunities for more and more success!
Keep opening these doors, keep learning, and you will find that Internet Marketing will provide you with several levels of knowledge, expertise, and income. The Domino Effect (opening door after door after door) will eventually result in a Snowball Effect which ultimately means income beyond your imagination.
What I call the Snowball Effect is another of your keys to online success. Once your efforts (snowballs) start rolling, they are unstoppable and automatically increase in size.
You time frame for success depends mostly on you and partly on the quality of your training. Be careful, many of your gurus are all about putting money in their pockets and not yours.
If you are considering a home based business as an Internet Marketer, I hope this information will help you and in a positive way. My thinking is that when you better understand what you are getting into, when you run into your first or second obstacle or road block, it will not be a deal breaker.
"The only way to fail at Internet Marketing is to quit! Do not quit and you MUST succeed."
I am stubborn and persistent, so quitting was never an option. Enough about me, save to say that I hope that you will be stubborn and persistent, and not have quitting as an option.
I wish you the best of luck on your Internet Journey.
PS. Embrace your failures, they are your best learning experiences. Use them as springboards.
