As is the trend nowadays, any gap in knowledge can be filled through a simple Youtube search. I was a typical beginner, who searched up "How to make money online" and obviously I came across a plethora of videos. I watched many videos and eventually clicked on a link and was compelled to follow through with the sales funnel.
Since then, I was hooked into believing in all the hype around this industry and how easy it was to make money online. I soon realized that I have maxed out my credit card (I bought over 10 different products including up-sells) and it slowly daunted on me that I have not yet made a single dime. I was so overwhelmed with information that some days I just sat there in front of my PC and stared blankly in front of me.
Now, there has to be a point in life when you feel pushed to the edge of an abyss. You either fall or snap out of it and jump. For me, that day eventually came and I took a leap of fate. I decided to ignore the voice in my head that cautioned me of failure and took action. The first thing I did was to borrow money from my parents and quite my full-time job. Instead of jumping straight into internet marketing training, I decided to focus on personal development first. This helped me stay focus and determined. Mindset training to me, is vital, because it helped me take the right action and ultimately earn money online.
The intention of this thread is to help those who are starting out and to remind them of the two biggest factors that cause others to fail an internet marketer:
1) Information Overload and 2) Shiny Object Syndrome.
If you remember your experience from when you first started as an internet marketer, please share your stories. I really think this can help those starting out stay on the right track and avoid pitfalls along the way.
