I Never Really Realized What A Business This Really Is...

by Jeremy Kelsall 8 replies
I'm sure I'm not the only one that started this journey into Internet Marketing
thinking that it was a piece of cake. Initially, I thought for sure that you just
set everything up and watched the money roll in. I think I saw the word "auto-pilot"
in a couple of different places which could have helped give me that impression

Slowly though, I am starting to realize that there is a lot of work that goes into
not only building a business, but maintaining it as well. With everything that I have
going on right now, taking time to do support is really the only thing that is keeping
me sane lol

There are a couple of things that are becoming crystal clear to me...

1. There really are no short cuts

2. Hard work is not only required but necessary

and

3. Outsourcing some things is a must!

Even though Internet Marketing is definitely not a cake walk I am very excited about
the opportunity that it is giving me and also about what the future holds in it.

    Seriously, you are right. Hard work, failing, learning, growing, failing again, etc. Do that enough times and you are an instant success.

      As I've mentioned before, you must be consistent and have the ambition to succeed.

        Agreeing with all of the above...

        I think that in IM "Autopilot" means just outsourcing every damned thing and letting someone else worry about it.

        Most of us are too hands on to let that happen though.

          There are some things I can outsource and some things I cannot outsource simply because of the fact that I believe I do them the best.

            Outsourcing is good....if you got the right folks...which is key.

            Once you delegate you lose a degree of control...which can affect the

            bottom line.

            I agree as well with everything here.

          I must say well put Jeremy! You hit the nail on the head for a lot of people I think!

          I knew coming into this that it would be a lot of work. I just wasn't aware there were so many levels to IM!

          I can understand why so many people start doing it and don't prosper, it takes A LOT of hard work, time and determination. But once you start getting into it it can be very addicting!

          I believe that the people who are successful are the ones that believe in themselves and their abilities.

    This business, like all others does require time... but every day I am more amazed at how much I can make with such little time invested. I have worked at restaraunts before where the owners had to be there from before Open to long past Close every single day.

    We are defintiely in one of the best businesses in the world.
