Business can be frustrating! Any business can be. It’s important to learn how to deal with internet business challenges!
That’s true any business, including a blogging business you learn with Wealthy Affiliate, too. Will learning how to skyrocket your business success help you deal with the challenges better?
Having a handle on how to be successful certainly helps to have the challenges along the way lose some of their impact.
Challenges happen. If you’re a person who can meet and greet them, and turn them to the positive, success is reachable…you just need the tools to get there.
In fact, any day, whether on vacation, or gardening, or taking a bike ride, or trying to get some sleep, we can have frustrations, can’t we? It makes sense that there will be challenges along the way in business, too.
Today’s Challenge To Deal With
Today I was in a mastermind group coaching call with our mentor, Bo Tipton. He suddenly had a computer problem…his computer, he said, was in process of shutting down…and then he was gone!
He skyped us all about ten minutes later to let us know things were under control and to come back again.
When we did, he said the computer was and is fine…he was doing an object lesson.
There we were, gathered, excited about what we were going to discuss, and the computer went on the blink. He wanted to talk about dealing with what is as a part of our training today. So he played a trick on us, where we were forced to reset our expectations and deal. We needed to figure out how to deal with internet business challenges.
An Entrepreneurial Mindset is What We Need
The lesson, that business can have its glitches. They can be frustrating. In fact, most people who try to go into business for themselves fail. That’s true with storefront businesses, and it’s true online.
Working for someone else is a lazier, and less frustrating way to make a living. When you own your own business, and the toilet needs to be cleaned, either you hire someone to do it, or you do it yourself. Most times, in a new business, you do it yourself until you can earn the right to hire someone else.
Most of us in our mastermind group are relatively new in this internet business. When we write about what we are learning, we are sharing what we just learned that day or that week. You get to learn along with us.
(If you want to learn right from the horse’s mouth – sorry, Bo, Firedog’s mouth – go to this site and sign up. Just $6.95 a month will give you access to everything we are learning, just as we learn it. You’ll get action steps, get the answers to our newbie-ish questions just as you’re probably thinking them, and get to learn so much more than with just one course of training on one aspect of internet marketing.)
One Aid To Success Is Good Training
I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and would not trade in that training for anything.
Bo trains there, too.
Kyle and Carson have set up a great program, with the quality of training, free internet website hosting with daily backup, tremendous support, and a growing, sharing and mutually-benefitting community of members. And the cost! Only $49 a month for all that! Wow.
Wealthy Affiliate is amazing! We learn every day how to deal with internet business challenges, with the help and support of fellow members.
What a way to learn to blog and monetize with affiliate marketing on your blog.
Bo Builds On That Base and Expands Opportunities
What Bo’s training does is to build on what we learn through Wealthy Affiliate. He teaches ways to generate income from other sources while you are building your blog, ways that can continue side-by-side with your blog, to enhance your earning results for many years to come.
Your blog takes time to start to make money. A lot of people quit along the way because it just takes too long. Oh, some quit because it takes work…
Face it, we see ads everyday all over the internet, promising that this course or this program, will give you instant money in your pockets…with 30 minutes of work. Then just sit back and watch the money roll in, right?
Bo emphasized how he knows those of us in our mastermind group certainly work hard. We don’t believe the hype that’s out there, that it’s going to happen for us in 30 minutes, or 1 week, or even 3 months. We know blogging is a longer-term time investment.
But one thing that can happen is that these ads can subtly permeate our consciousness, adding to our stress and frustration . Bo warns us to be very mindful of the need to work hard, be persistent, and to look for solutions when things crop up.
Throwing up our hands and quitting is what too many do. To have an entrepreneurial mindset, ya gotta have sticking-, solving-, success-power. He said if any of us’re not ready and willing to have that mindset, we may as quit now.
Entrepreneurs, people who own their own businesses, have to be able to roll with the punches.
- They have to be willing to work hard.
- They have to be willing to do whatever it takes.
- They have to be persistent.
So the question becomes, are you one of those who has the temperament to be your own boss?
95% who try end up failing.
Is it because they just don’t want to do what it takes? Perhaps for some.
But the success rate with Wealthy Affiliate training is almost 250% better than the average.
That tells me that part of the reason people don’t keep going to success is they don’t know how. And they don’t give it enough time. Wealthy Affiliate fills that gap for an awful lot of people who want this business.
I have two questions for you:
One question becomes, if you get some more guidance, will your odds of success skyrocket? If you do what you are told, lay one brick on top of the other, consistently, you will be successful, Bo assures each one of us. I want to pass that on to you.
Brick-laying may not be glamorous…it’s work. As Bo says, the dream lies on the other side of the work.
Another question is, if you were given training – specific training – not only more training in the implementation of the blogging necessaries, but in coordinating, complementary streams of income
- that comes in faster
- that helps to pay your way on the road to blogging success
- that provides security of more than one egg in your basket,
do you think that will help?
Let’s assume you’re a person who has the entrepreneurial grit and fortitude.
Let’s assume that you are willing and able to do whatever it takes in hard consistent work to get it done.
Let’s assume that you are the kind of person who will meet challenges as opportunities to solve a problem and make things work better, not as a stop sign.
Let’s assume you are the kind of person who can succeed in the internet business.
