I have been working on the Internet now since December 2004 and I have done all the things one needs to do to earn an income from the use of my computer at home. There are many resources and so many different programmes and opportunities that it amazes me.
Is it any wonder only 5% of people make it on the internet or indeed in any network marketing adventure. There are some key things you need to grasp before you embark on finding that 'perfect opportunity' that is going to make you rich!!
Do you know what your strengths are?
Do you know what you are good at?
Do you know what your abilities are in relation to your creative streak?
Are you teachable?
Do you have a strong desire to succeed in this life?
How hungry are you for success?
How important is self employment to you that you will do what it takes to get there?
These are questions you need to answer before you go looking for a Home Based Business on the Internet. If you go to a search engine or to a traffic exchange and simply click on sites all day you will get lost in cyberspace.
Decide what you would like to become involved in for the rest of your life. Can you write good stories? Do you love the health and nutrition industry? Do you love the outdoor life? Do you love Information Technology?
Once you know the answer to all of the above then sit back down at your computer and type into a search engine those words that are relevant to who you are and where you want to go. Don't get caught up looking at every opportunity because marketing is all about attracting you to look at this or that particular opportunity.
When you find something you like investigate further, call someone, email them and find out:- 1. realistic earning potetnial and 2. will you get upline support and training.
In any business we need to be taught, in life we need to learn skills to get by.
Business is exactly the same. Internet marketing requires a good team ethos and with that success will come.
Ensure, when you find an opportunity that you feel good about it, then commit to it. Get it into your mind that you will give this a go for at least a year through thick or thin.
Persist, be patient, be determined, be teachable, experiment and never give up. Don't be distracted by another opportunity that looks easier or has a better website!
Stick to your guns and prove to yourself that you have the potential to succeed as a Home Based Business Person.
