I started this out in 2011 after I was in a low point in my life, and googled how to make money online. My search eventually led me the world of IM, filled with info-products and get rich quick schemes disguised as 'business opportunities'. My naivety led me to believe that this would be a way to get a taste of self-employment, and learn how to run a business without having a 'fancy degree' and all.
A lot has happened during that time and I am aware of my limitations. I know that I don't know the first thing about how to run a real business. I barely even know the basics, like how to do market research, how to market, the fundamentals of the economy.
I know enough to skirt by, but I know that in order to achieve what I want I need to learn. Yes, I know there are thousands of books out there that I can read(I have been reading), but I think a structured environment would be better for me. I thought that the wisest choice would be to go rogue, skip school, and 'make passive income', but that is all a pie in the sky dream.
I am thinking and in the midst of planning to go back to school to get a masters in business and administration. I don't have the funds now, but I think this would be a great opportunity to show my resourcefulness and make the money to go back to school.
It would most likely be a few years before I can afford to go back, and I am debating whether I should do online schooling or onsite schooling.
I would feel more empowered knowing I have the skills to succeed, and I think a lot of people would take me more seriously.
MLM, 'passive income', and crappy info-product creation is not the way for me to be taken seriously, and I don't take any of that seriously anymore.
There is so much more to creating a profitable business, online and offline.
These are the questions I still struggle to answer due to lack of knowledge.
1.How do I effectively find a product or service that is in demand?
2.How do I study market trends?
3.How do I create a proper business outline?
4.How to get the financial resources to 'start up'.
5.How to actually manage things like accounting, logistics, payroll etc.
6.How does the world economy work?
I won't find any answers to these questions in a $7 wso or clickbank product.
I don't want this to be a game anymore...
