Confused? Frustrated? You're stuck in
- article by Chris
If you're starting or running your own
home-based online business and you're confused and frustrated,
and don't know which way to turn for real answers, you're not
There's so much information coming at you
from so many directions! Product choices, store platforms,
social marketing, merchant accounts, search engine
optimization...where does it all end? How do you make sense of
Well, the first thing you need to
know is that it's normal. If you're not
confused, you're not an Entrepreneur. Confusion is the natural
state of a small business owner.
The second thing you need to know is how to
get through it.
I've started and run many businesses in my 35
year Entrepreneurial career. Yes, it gets much easier along the
way, but there is always an element of confusion when you
venture into a new field. You can't help it; that's just the way
it is. Nobody's born knowing this stuff.
The most important thing you can do for
yourself and your business is to take things one step at a time.
An online business is made up of four basic things:
Find a Product to Sell
Pick a Storefront
Market the Business
Of course, within and in between those simple
sounding steps are hundreds of little things that need to be
done and learned. Meeting and working with people who are
already running online businesses is critical to your success.
I know a lot of people who have done really
well online and made lots of money. None of them did it in a
hurry, and all of them sought help from trusted, experienced
people in the business community.
Working by yourself in a vacuum is the
hardest way to do this, and the quickest way to get confused,
frustrated, and end up wasting your time and effort. It's also
the best way to get caught up in the thousands of online scams
So slow down, take things one step at a time,
concentrate on one part of your business at a time, and seek out
someone who can help you.
I'll work with you
personally for a full year to teach you these critical
concepts and much more, to de-confuse the confusion and fill in
all the blanks between those four major steps.
I did it for myself and many others; I can do
it for you.
