3. Find Mentors- Get H.O.P.E.(Help from Other People's Expertise)
Have you ever heard of saying "don't re-invent wheel"? Sure you have. Somehow, somewhere someone has already figured out a way to succeed in venture you're getting into. Why not follow his/her proven recipe for success and apply it to your own situation.
The shortcut to success is through Mentorship. In area of Internet Marketing, there are already those who have found ways to be successful....even though Net is still new and there's still a lot to learn. Find these successful Online Marketers and model their formula for success. Seek out these Webmasters. You'd be surprised to find out how generous they are with their advice.
It' easy to follow their footsteps. Check their web sites, read their books and study their courses. Most of these experts publish FREE newsletters where you can learn tons of golden nuggets of information every week. I even found a few of them who offer e-mail and phone consultation when you obtain their books and courses. I will reveal who these Masters are & what I learned from them in a future article.

4. Share Your EXPERTISE
Dr. Stephen Covey, author of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People", wrote that best way to learn principles is to teach others.
Teach others and you'll be better at it each time you do it. The more you SHARE and teach, more of an expert you become. The more you become an expert, more you improve your credibility. When you share your expertise (what you're PASSIONATE about), you will not only build your credibility. It will also help you develop your knowledge and skills and help your business grow. Thus, it will help your earnings.
It's a positive feedback loop:
LEARN --- SHARE / EARN
5. Get Started NOW!
A sense of urgency is mark of a successful person. There is no better time to START than NOW TODAY!
Most failures think that there are 8 days in a week --- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday & SOMEDAY... "Someday, I'll start my own business." "Someday, I'll get to it." "Someday, I'll.." Well, "Someday" never comes.
All winners think of one day TODAY! Think of today & everyday as beginning of rest of your life. Whatever Internet business you want to start, START NOW. Whatever task you need to do to get started, DO IT TODAY. Be it learning Internet Marketing, studying search engine positioning, email marketing or creating a web site.. whatever it is, it doesn't matter. Just Get Started!
My advice to beginners: List 5-10 things you love to share or do. Narrow it down to one or two you're most passionate or most motivated about. Then start learning more about it, find mentors to help you and finally, share it to world. The best place to do it is on Internet.
If it's true that SUCCESS is progressive realization of a worthy ideal, then when you start today, you already are a SUCCESS.
I wish you best of success!
