Can You Stick To It?

success key in handDiligence

Diligence can mean a lot of things, but in this case it means your ability to complete your tasks from start to finish.

One reason some entrepreneurs fail is the fact that they get half an idea and then rush into the production phase of their business. That’s like putting the cart before the horse.

This is part 5 of a 5 part series.Before you spend significant time and money on any venture, you need to make sure it’s a viable idea.

  • Is there a market for your topic or niche?
  • Is there a market for your potential product?
  • Are there affiliates or multiple income streams?
  • Do you have a sustainable interest in the niche?
  • Are you a good fit for the third party business opportunity?

Do your homework, ask questions, and most importantly – be honest with yourself.

Putting adequate time into the research phase will save you a lot of frustration in the future. You might find out you were planning to spend good money on an idea that has no legs.

It’s what I call the perspiration in the preparation.

It’s not just the research phase, though. You’re going to have a task list a mile long and you have to follow through on it. Keyword research, for instance, is something not many people enjoy, but it’s necessary when you’re business is on the Internet.

If you have the funds, you can always outsource tasks you despise, personally I’m not at that point yet – but don’t skip over anything pertinent just because you don’t feel like doing it.

Shortcuts will hurt your success!

mindset Persistence

Failure is a part of life and this is even truer in the business world. You need to decide that you’re not going to let failure stop you.

If you believe you’ll be a success, you will. If you can get excited when visualizing money and new customers flowing to you day after day, these things are likely to become a reality in your life.

But if you’re filled with self-doubt and plagued by fear, odds are you’ll struggle and sputter until you run back to your old job. If you don’t think you have what it takes to succeed, then you’re absolutely right!

Many people dream about working for themselves, but far too many make the move. The secret to success . . . is to ACT on those dreams and start living as if they’re already successful online marketers.

Trust me it’s not always easy but it certainly is worth it!

So – What helps you to stick to it?
