I am pretty new on this forum and I started to do serious online marketing only recently. I wanted to contribute with something from my experience with internet marketing. Maybe some of you will relate with my story. I know how it looks like when you are new or when you are trying to figure out how to earn money online for a quite some time. All that doubt, lack of self confidence, uncertainty, countless obstacles and without a clue where the solution could possibly be. Not knowing where to start, where to search for information, whom to ask. Everybody is saying "I know the best, I know the best, I got solution for you..."
I've been there. How helplessly I felt!
I wanted to dedicate this post to all of you who are lost or stuck in achieving your internet dream.
As I said I am new to online marketing when speaking of doing it in a serious and right way. I came in touch with it many years ago. I think it was some 12 years ago when I first became aware of people doing business from the internet and great possibilities internet offers for earning money! From the very first day I was drawn to the thought of doing business online. Those first years I have never actually take it seriously. After some time I started to search internet on how to make profits online. I was overloaded with information's. I bet that happened to many of you too. I was confused, lost and discouraged many times! I didn't know how or where to begin, what should I do next, what directions to take! I didn't know anything at all and inside my head was so much noise! It didn't make any sense! Further more I was convinced that I would be able to build my online business with free information and tools available on the internet. That was a BIG MISTAKE!!! I lost so much valuable time, efforts and nerves that I can't express enough how wrong I was! This morning I was thinking about that mistake and I was thinking about all marketers who are struggling with their businesses and who are maybe making same mistake as I did. I was impelled to write this post so others can learn from my BIG mistake and I wanted to make it easier for everybody who is reading this lines. Maybe you are at the beggining of your online adventure, maybe you are stuck with no results for a quite some time. Maybe you are discouraged, depresed or maybe on the verge of giving up. Please please don't do same mistake like I did!!! You might regret it one day! Online marketing is a way to go and with it you can make your dreams come true!!! You see, online business is like any other business. You should take it seriously and you should act seriously about it! If you want to make living from it you should treat it like a real business and not like a hobby. Difference between real business and hobbies is in results. With a hobby you only have expenses! With a business you earn real money! So if you are trying to make your online business to work you never never shouldn't think something like this, "Oh well, let's try it and see what will come out..." instead you should think "Yes this is my way for freedom and I will do it no matter what!".
So what was my turning point? What I changed?
I got a mentor!!!
Please read it again it's important, I got a mentor! You see, why invent the wheel or fire again. It doesn't make sense. The wisest thing to do would be to take advice and learn from a person who already has something that I want. That person has already gone through path I am about to take. He has been in my position and he knows how to came from the point where I am now to the point where he is now. Again, what would be the wisest thing I could do? Stick to him, learn from him, listen what he is saying without any doubt! Why? Because he knows the path. That was what I did few months back, I changed the way I'm thinking. Once wise man has said, "If you could change the way you think you could change your life." It is so true, it happened to me. My life changed dramaticaly! My business started to move forward. First revenues began to flow! It was so wonderful feeling! I knew if I can make 1$ I can make 100$, 1000$, 10000$, 100000$,... Now I know what I have to do. I've laid down solid foundations for my business which is growing now. I've learned everything needed to make long lasting and profitable online business. I'm laser focused with incredibly high self confidence, I became very positive person with a big smile on my face. Why is that so? Because I know where I am going and I know how my future will look like. Most importantly I know I can do it! When I'm thinking back, I almost gave up! What a mistake that would be! What different life that would be! My dear mentor, my friend, I owe you! Thank you so much!!!
I know it isn't easy to decide to invest your hard earned money into something you don't know what it is? What will you get in exchange? Will it be profitable? Will it pay back? Can you believe in a person you decided to take for a mentor? My dear friends believe me, you have to do this!! Otherwise it will be tough or impossible for you! Think, every famous athlete, politicians, business man, they all have their trainers, advisors and mentors. Do you think Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, Barack Obama or any other person who has done great things in their lives don't have somebody who advises them? Please you know the answer. Do you think you don't need somebody to teach you how to make real money online?!
That was my biggest mistake! I wasn't willing to invest money into somebody who will show me the right way. I lost so many of my valuable time that I can't get back and I lost my money also!
So my dear friends, please don't make same mistake like I did. Yes you will have to invest your money, yes you will have to work hard but believe me it is all worth it! This is serious business and it has some expenses. You have to invest something! You can't expect to make profitable business without any investment! In time you will became expert and you will see, it's not so complicated as you may think. That way you will go the easiest and fastest way. Your initial investment will pay off several thousand times and your dreams will come true!!!
Still don't have a mentor? What are you waiting for! Find somebody and remember, never never never never never give up!!!
