The Right Way To Start Your Home Business
As you probably know, starting your own business is not an easy endeavor. There are no quick rich schemes that you can use to make money, no short cuts, and if any one tells you otherwise, then let me tell you quite frankly, they are more interested in lining up their own pockets than helping.
So let me be clear… To have a successful online business requires a lot of work. I have been doing it since 1997 and I remember being elated the first time I received an $87 check from an affiliate program I had decided to market. That check came 4 months after the launch of my website, and I had to wait for another 3 months before I received another payment.
And as time went by, the frequency by which I was getting my payments went up until it became a monthly event. A year later, I was making around $800 a month, which was not a bad start at all, but was never enough for me to leave my 8 to 9 job.
In the beginning, I remember saying to my wife, let’s use that money for our next vacation, and so the following year, I spent $4500 on a cruise, wiping out in the process every penny I had earned online.
Still it felt great and I knew that if I had been able to generate all that money on a part time basis, what would I be able to earn if I work a little harder.
15 years later, I am now fortunate to be able to earn a whole lot more, and more importantly, I do so in the comfort of my own home, working a few hours a week which is all I need really to maintain my current level of income.
I know people for whom no amount of money is ever enough and I see them work hard amassing more and more money, and that is of course their rights.
The point is that we are all different, we all have different aspirations and needs, and owning an online business is to my mind the surest way to achieve whichever goals we set for ourselves.
I hope that whatever I have learned along the way will give you the knowledge and the tools to realize your own aspirations and goal. Let me wish you success for your online business.
