The internet can be a fickle place.
It can be both amazing and a little bit frustrating (trying to keep this on the light side). After last year more people than ever have taken to the internet to create a business, side-hustle, or completely overhaul their lifestyle.
The challenge is that there is a misconception about what it really takes to make it all work.
I’ve seen so many people get excited about the potential and opportunity only to throw in the towel too soon. Whether they were hoping for a little win or had expectations about replacing a full-time income.
There’s a harsh truth about creating and building something online that people don’t want to acknowledge. The good news is if you’re willing to stick with it and course correct along the way, you’re so far ahead of most people that you’ll see success sooner than you think.
In this post I also talk about the 3 things you need in place in order to succeed online (I promise it’s not just theory or esoteric… as much as I love that stuff too).
