2. Finding your Niche. Take time early on to research your online business topic. What is your passion? What do you know about? What makes you join in a conversation when you would normally stay quiet? What irritates you? Where do you gravitate in a book store? What have you been doing for past five to ten years? Find a topic that you are versed in and make a business of it.
3. Invest in yourself. Don’t be afraid to spend money for what you feel is worthwhile. I’ve heard so many people tell me that they are afraid to spend money on e-books, courses or tools they need to help their business. Not everything out there is worthwhile, I think we’ve all learned that lesson in some form or another, however, with research and reliable references you can easily determine a good value and boost your knowledge that much quicker.
4. Think big. Move your sights to being successful and getting rich. Set goals. If you want to make $5000 a month then set a goal of when you think you might be able to reach it. If you keep a figure in mind you’d be surprised at what action you might take to obtain it, verses not keeping it in mind.
5. Find someone you consider successful and follow their lead. We all have people we look up to and if you can find someone in your choice of interest, focus on them. Find out their background. What got them ahead? Read their biography. When feeling overwhelmed or defeated, visit their website or look back over their books or articles. Gain support and strength from their successes or failures. Always focus on ‘can do’ because if you focus on ‘I can’t’, you won’t.
