Written by Terri Seymour

Starting and building an Internet business is not an easy task. There isrepparttar never-ending learning about promotion, marketing, website design and building, technical problems, HTML, cgi, java;repparttar 117541 list goes on and on. There are a few things you should think about when you are planning your online business. These three things are some ofrepparttar 117542 most basic yet most important aspects that could make your business a success!

These are Perseverance, Passion and People!

**Perseverance - Building a successful online business can take months or even years. Examine your goals and your life.

Will you have what it takes to not give up when things are going bad?

Do you haverepparttar 117543 determination to work this business for weeks or months without making any money?

Do you want to give up most ofrepparttar 117544 small amount of spare time that you now have?

Go over these questions in your mind and see what you come up with. Despite allrepparttar 117545 "get rich quick" ads you see, this most likely will not happen. Most people will not even get rich slowly, however, you can make a good income.

You might start making a small amount of money in a few weeks or months, then you might not make any for a few months. You must not let yourself give up, when business is not all it's cracked up to be! You must have Perseverance!

**Passion - When you are choosing your business, build your business around something that interests you, something that you are passionate about. This will help you keep going when things get tough.

Will I want to work with this business everyday?

Does this business interest me enough to keep my determination going?

Will my passion override any doubts that I will have about becoming successful?

Ask yourself these questions and see whatrepparttar 117546 answers are. You cannot build a successful business around something you have no passion or knowledge about. If you are nuts about horses, build your business around horses, not cats! You must have Passion!
