Here's where I share the day to day details of starting my online business. My goal is to answer any questions you might have about starting a business online by sharing with you my day to day experiences. You'll find business opportunity reviews, marketing expert reviews, marketing tools and techniques and pretty much anything I come across in building an online business. This section of the site will be more of a sounding post for me to scribble notes about my daily goings-on out here, whether it be a short post about something that irritates me, something I've run across that I really like and other general online marketing adventures. You'll find in-depth information and reviews on everything online business in the appropriate sections of the site.

I just want to share a word about persistence and maybe provide a different perspective for those who are new to internet marketing. So many people join programs, give it a little effort and seem to just fade away after a few weeks, only to pop up again promoting yet another latest and greatest opportunity. I don't know of any business whether it's online or offline that doesn't take consistent, persistent work.
Every business experiences slowdowns. If you're like most internet marketers out here, you're probably building a downline. Sometimes you'll go a few days to even a couple of weeks with no referrals and then get a spike for a few days. This is where you'll have to develop a thicker skin and persist through the peaks and valleys.
Let's take it offline for a minute-
I can't imagine someone opening a new store, putting time, effort and money into it and when it doesn't produce immediate gratification, just opening another store or restaurant or car wash... or any business for that matter and starting the process all over again, yet online, people jump from business opportunity to business opportunity seeming to think that instant gratification lies in one of the hundreds of opportunities out here. Before you know it, 6 months to a year has gone by and all that's been accomplished is that you've hopped around from one opportunity to another, starting from scratch each time, with nothing to show for it. I know, I've been there and done that many times over. It wasn't until I really committed to and took ownership of the very few programs that I promote, that I began to get the results I'm after.
Online business is not much different than an offline business, the same rules apply. The only real difference is that a person can get started in building a true business without the enormous cost that an offline business takes.
Until and unless you truly take ownership of the program you are promoting and really wrap your mind around the fact that success isn't going to just fall into your lap, then you're more than likely never going to see any sort of success with any type of business... online or off. Harsh words I know, but if I'm not honest with you then I'm not helping you. We all need a kick now and then.
One thing I like about my own business- The 10K Challenge- is that it isn't dependent on a massive number of referrals like so many others out here. The way this is designed, you can make a substantial income from only two active referrals per month, but persistence and consistency are key, no matter what you're promoting. Take satisfaction in the challenge and process. Learn to extract gratification in the small daily accomplishments and goals met. Relentless, consistent, persistence...
I don't know what your musical tastes are, but this song just gets me going every time!
