PLAN & ORGANIZE your time. With an online business, there is a lot of work and details to stick to and writing a schedule will help you keep your time organized so all your work gets done. if you do not take time to plan out your work, you will begin to feel overwhelmed and then you are more apt to become discouraged and feel like giving up. http://www.organizetips.com/
BUILD YOURSELF and your reputation and then build your business. You must establish yourself as someone who knows what they are doing and can be trusted. Once this is done, business will begin to grow.
BE PASSIONATE about yourself and your business. Your passion and excitement will show through to others and will reflect on your business. Your passion will also help you to keep going on days when you feel like giving up. http://www.5passions.com/
ASK FOR HELP. Do not be afraid to ask questions. There are many others who have been in your shoes and would be glad to answer your questions and help when they can. I have made many friends and built many relationships just be asking questions of others. I have also learned a lot!
BUILD RELATIONSHIPS with your customers and fellow netpreneurs. Ask for your potential customers participation on your site or in your ezine. Let them get to know you and to feel comfortable with you and your business. You can build lasting personal and business relationships without actually meeting someone. http://www.utdallas.edu/student/slife/counseling/relation.html
NEVER STOP LEARNING! Things are always moving and changing on web and you have to keep on top of things. Never think that you know all you need to know. There is always more to learn!
SET GOALS that you can stick to. Divide your main goal into smaller goals or steps. By attaining these smaller goals, you will gain confidence and become more passionate about next goal.
