Getting started with your own business is difficult. There will be many people try to tell you how easy it is, but don't believe them, it's not.
By your own business, I do not mean affiliate programs, at least not for this article. Affiliate programs, while they are great ways to learn, and can make money, will never really be your own business. You can make your own business around being in other's affiliate programs, but that's different.
With your own business, however, there are some difficult things you need to overcome.
For instance, one of best ways to convince potential customers to buy is with power of your previous customer's testimonials. Well, testimonials are pretty hard to come by when your brand new.
As an alternative to using testimonials from your customers, instead use quotes from notable people that testify to usefulness of your product or business. It doesn't have to be specific to you in order to be a personal recommendation.
Another problem is often people will ask about your experience, preferring to work with or join under those who have been around a while and have shown some proven results. This is also difficult to overcome.
However, you can turn focus away from experience if you lack it by promoting your other qualities. Show what education you have, or talk about support your upline offers and their experience. Relate how your experience elsewhere transfers into what you are doing now. Then if it comes right down to it, suggest that while you don't have experience of others, you do have plans for future, are pursuing more education, and have a positive belief in what you are doing. Show that you plan on being around for long haul and that you love what you are doing. Positive energy can be contagious. Use this to replace your lack of experience.
Naturally, you must actually have that attitude and plans for future. Whatever you do, always be honest with your intentions.
