How to succeed with your Online Business
You have taken initiative towards your own personal success and I know it will be just a matter of time before you are earning a consistent income online.
BUT, today I want to discuss the idea of ENSURING your success.
I can honestly tell you that there is a sure way to achieve success online, but first I want to help you understand how to achieve success through my personal journey from back in 2002 when I started out. This is will give you a ton of perspective on how success happened for me and how it will likely “look” like for you.
Here is my story...
I started back in 2002. No job. No incoming flow of money. Notta.
Just some really hefty school bills as I was attending college with my very good friend Carson. Both of us at the time were piling up “debt” (the idea of which I have always hated). I still remember that day someone told me I could make money on the Internet and they showed me proof that they were earning money.
Guess who showed me this?
Carson, whom 3 years later I joined up with and we created a very successful online business (after we both independently created successful affiliate businesses online).
This was my first “taste” of starting something on my own, so I was not quite sure what sort of revenue to expect. The first month I worked my butt off, creating a website (which was an arduous task back then) and building some, what I thought at the time was, quality content.
My first month I made a whopping $0. I worked hard with ZERO revenue.
Did I give up?
Absolutely not. Although I wasn’t financially successful, I had created a website. My very own website. That was a freakin’ accomplishment to me! I had also learned how to write a page of content and get it published. These were both successes in my eyes. I was still in the process of learning and building my foundation from the skills acquired on WA Site. Really, how could I be mad at myself, I was in the process of spending $10,000’s in school fees and several YEARS of schooling before I ever had the chance to make money.
So moving on, guess what I made my 2nd month?
Now you are probably saying, what the hell Kyle, why didn’t you quit? The reason. I had built my foundation for success and I knew from other “success stories” and the fact that the Internet had billions of people buying stuff online every day, that an online business was a reality for me. I just had to give it time and make it work! I knew I was getting close. I was....and my hard work from the first two months PAID off.
Early in month 3, I made my first SALE online. WOOHOO! I nearly jumped out of my seat when I logged into my affiliate account and saw a sale of just over $40!!
And from there, things started to snowball. The work I had done in the first two months started to pay dividends. I keep on learning vital skills on WA site JOIN FREE
Then by Month 6: I was making a consistent income. I was able to pay off all my student debt and I was able to fund my “school” lifestyle. :)
By Month 12: I was pretty much full time. I was earning enough to work full time, but I was still scared of the idea of working from home. This fear quickly dissolved and a few months later I started to work from home full time.
And here we are 11 YEARS Later: I am still working from home and I love EVERY MINUTE of it! I would not trade this lifestyle for the world.
I just had my first child (baby girl, Scotland) and I couldn’t imagine how much more difficult it would have been if I wasn’t able to work from home and help my wife with the day to day duties. :)
BUT, none of this would have been possible if I quit. If I gave up. If I said after that second month of $0 in revenue, “this doesn’t work”.
This leads me to YOU and YOUR success. How can I ensure that you will be successful online? Quite easy.
Give yourself ENOUGH time to achieve success. By this I mean, giving yourself more than a month...and even two months. Give yourself at least one year to get your own personal business and success rolling and you will ensure that you will be successful.
