In case you haven’t noticed, the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has been kind of a big deal around the world. But what does it mean for online marketers? And really, what does it truly mean for anyone?
Remember, entrepreneurs win no matter who is in the White House. But winning is a choice and a daily commitment to excellence.
Starting an online business can be an intimidating thing. So many options, but where do you start? That’s what today’s video is all about…getting started in a sea of options.
Loren Carlson is starting an online business (way to go, Loren!) but he doesn’t know where to start. Here’s what he wrote recently:
According to my reader survey, 34% of you are already full-time entrepreneurs. That 34% know something the rest of you might not: Entrepreneurship is not risky. In fact, it might be the least risky thing you can do.
Why a Post About Entrepreneurship?
According to that same reader survey, 57% of you are not currently entrepreneurs but want to be. That’s why you follow me…to learn how to escape a job you hate and make it on your own.
Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to be successful in online business? Have you ever doubted that you can succeed as an affiliate or run a huge product launch? Do you watch others being successful and think, “that will never be me”? If so, this is for you.
At one time or another, we all have doubts.
We think that we don’t have enough experience. Or that we have the wrong kind.
One of my favorite things to do in January is take inventory of where I’m at in my life, both professionally and personally (family, health, etc.), and reflection is a great way to get started with this.
First, I take a look back at what I’ve done over the past year that DID work, and then I also recognize those things that DIDN’T work.
Next, I turn to goal setting to get pumped up (and prepped) for what I want to accomplish in the new year based on what I’ve learned.
But you know just as well as I do that sometimes we set goals, but then we fail to actually accomplish those goals.
Is it possible to make a living teaching what you love? How about building a 7-figure income doing so? Oh sure, you know it’s possible…after all, Tony Robbins has done just that. So have countless others. But those are the “special people” right? Wrong. Regular people, just like you and me, are doing exactly that. And today, I’ll show you how you can, too.
I don’t know about you, but often when I see online teachers and “gurus,” one (or more) of four thoughts comes to mind:
- This guy’s a scam artist (and while that is rare, it is sometimes the case).
- This guy is good…so good that I could never be like him.
- I could do that…but why am I not? What does he have that I don’t?
- I wish I knew how to do that.
