Many Internet Marketers seem to struggle and in reality have taken out a second mortgage or borrowed absurd amounts of money from family members to start a company. Sometimes these Internet Marketers suffer from shiny object syndrome and keep spending more than what is being made hoping for some "push button software" instead of using it as a tool.
The faster you quit a bad idea, the sooner you can start another idea that shows more promise. When it becomes apparent that there is trouble ahead, knowing when to pull the plug can help minimize financial disaster.
When it comes to Internet Marketers that do thrive it usually is because there is a genuine interest and devoted passion. If you are doing Internet Marketing because it looks cool than you should probably have an honest thought about if this lifestyle is right for you.
If you need your sleep and dislike going to bed late or getting up early or because you just want to be your own boss than this might not be right for you. Those that are truly successful and thrive in Internet Marketing tend to work until goals are reached instead of stopping when tired or hungry. Working for yourself means you have many bosses since your customers are your bosses and you better deliver.
The other attribute of Internet Marketers that seem to thrive is independence. Leaders lead by example by executing simple plans effectively. If you feel the need to have a coach or mentor without putting in some effort before seeking guidance than perhaps you need to be lead which is fine as having structure and certainly is why the mass majority work a job.
Those that have truly obtained financial freedom typically got there by helping as many people as possible by providing products or services that deliver value instead of focusing on recruiting to line the pockets off the hard work of others.
