When I became a music teacher, I thought I had learned enough in college to be an expert in my profession. Was I in for a rude awakening. After a short stint I realized what's more valuable in teaching is what they fail to teach you in college - what you learn on your own on job.
I had a brimful of musical information and skill to impart, but most of it meant zilch until I learned to get along in classroom. Many tools, tips, and tricks in dealing with school age children came to me after trial and error.
In home-based marketing, especially on Internet, same idea holds true. Take as many Internet courses as you like. Visit as many sites as you wish to experience how others have succeeded. In end, it's what actually happens to you as a result of your own effort that's going to be of most value.
Don't be afraid or ashamed to be perceived as a "newbie". We all start out as such, even if to some degree more or less. Reach out now to someone who can take you around block - show what's worked for them. You'll be glad you did.
There's a lot to be gained from soaking in Internet courses. And, yes, devour those ezine articles, scour newest ebooks available, and all rest. Make most of it. Learn something every day.
But above all, look for individuals who will take time to support you. Let them be your mentors. Be their most eager students.
Remember, too, that not everything to be gained on Internet in a home-based business is free or easy. Too many of us are desperate for quick sales when we set up our businesses. We're sick and tired of 9 to 5 grind and want instant profitability to rescue us from our woes.
Even most attractive programs, ones that promise generous cash earnings, will take effort. Further, even best plans will have to survive trial and error. But what you learn from that will benefit you endlessly.
