I love the story in the Bible where the two good men built their home, one on the rock and one on the sand. The storm came and blow both the houses. And when the storm was gone, the house built on the rock stand while the house built on the sand washed out.
There was nothing wrong about their perceptions, it is just a matter of choice. You will reap the fruit of the choices and decisions in the future.
One of the biggest reasons why people fail at Internet Marketing is because of a wrong BUSINESS mindset. Yes, it is true that you have to spend the remainder of the hours you have left after work, maybe two to three hours a day for your business. But that does NOT mean that you will adopt Working Part Time mentality or half-hearted mentality towards your business! So you see here the application of the story above, you can either have a Working Part Time business mindset and a Working Full Time business mindset. A choice you have to make. You should invest time, effort and commitment to make your business up and running towards your goal.
You should also be dedicated and persistent same as you would do with your full time job. Remember that anything you give more than your best is bound for success. You will need to work at a certain momentum so that you can attain the following:
- Develop the necessary knowledge to build your business. Spend sometime learning your business will make that, so you need to be dedicated learning the required skills. You can join a training community to do that.
- Others will do a joint venture with you. Other businesses would like that they will be working with a person with total commitment on his own business, so you have to show commitment and good results before others will come.
- Build a strong reputation. You can build that strong reputation from others by providing value to your customers and partners
Treat your online marketing business as a business, not a hobby. Take that full time business mindset in running your business! You may be Working Part Time with your business, but you have to treat it with A Full Time Business Mindset.
To your success!
