first of all, chinese new year is only one day ahead. i would like to take this opportunity to
Wish You All A year of Good Health, Peace and Prosperity!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
looking back, we’ve been doing businesses online with fun and profit for 4 years.
5 or 6 years ago, i could not imagine i would run a few online businesses successfully 5 years later. at that time, the only Internet related thing i used effectively was email. when time flies, i’ve learnt a lot and done several e-commerce sites.
and before i knew it, i started answering questions, teaching people how to start online business, some people even call me “expert”.
i’ve seen many people that want to bring business online but never start taking any action. here are the top 3 reasons they told me that keep them from starting online business. in my mind, none of these shoud stop you.
1)i’m not an expert of anything.
people assume they must be an expert in order to start. no, you do not have to be. i know little about Internet 5 years ago. but then again, who knew much about Internet 5 years ago? if you did, what about 10 years ago? did you know the term “Internet” 20 years ago?
some people think i’m expert in SEO and online business but i knew nothing in this industry 5 years ago. my point is, you can become expert of any topic as long as you want to learn. and you do not have to be expert before you start.
you can learn while your doing it.
also, everyone knows something that others do not know. many people would like to learn the knowledge from you. think about your day job, your interests, your life experience. i’m 100% you have some knowledge that you can share with others.
2)is making money online real?
people have heard of scary stories. dotcom burst, online scams, making money quick nonsense… many people have impression that most of online businesses are in grey area: adult, spam, scam…
it’s true that there’re tons of rubbish online.
on the other hand, tens of thousnads of people are running honest online businesses selling all kinds of products and services successfully. i’m not referring to the big boys like ebay, amazon. i mean small businesses run by everage joe.
yes it is real. i’m living example 🙂
3)i’ve tried many times with no success
it’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. but chances are, you tried wrong path.
starting and running online business is like running offline business. it takes time, work, money, effort, commitment. but compared with real world businesses, it requires less resources significantly.
but you cannot join a downline club and hope you will be rich in next few months. you cannot jump from great opportunity to another great opportunity. most of these opportunities you find in emails are just nonsense, by the way.
you need to spend time to build your business from ground up.
once again, happy chinese new year.
and see ya online !
