You Can’t Reach for the Stars If You’re a Couch Potato

Let’s face it, some people will never succeed in an online business because they are unwilling to take action. The television remote sticks to their hand like Super Glue, the newest video game has to be played immediately, or the newest bestseller is ready to be downloaded to the Nook. It’s easier to stretch out on the couch and kick it, than learn some skills that will help create a good income online.
For those who are interested in creating a good income online, I have some tips that can help you along the way.
Discover Your Niche
What do you like to do? Think of activities that put a smile on your face, and about how you could use these activities to start a business. If you’re a people person, your business could involve speaking to groups, tutoring, or social marketing. A shy person might discover their passion lies in solo activities such as web design, or writing.
Find a Mentor
You’ve probably heard the saying, “Success leaves clues,” so find someone in your chosen field and follow them. You can connect with a mentor by personal email, through social marketing such as Facebook, and Twitter, through a mutual friend, or through the mentor’s website. Don’t believe the common misconception that you will be a bother by asking questions of a mentor. Most successful people are happy to help, because they were once beginners too, and know what it’s like to struggle in the early days of a business.
Learn Something New Everyday
Learn skills such as creating a video, building a website, compiling a list, and how to use an autoresponder. You’ll want to know how many people are visiting your website, so learn how to set up Google Analytics, and how to start a blog. Register with the social marketing sites, such as MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter, to not only post your own content, but to comment on the posts of others.
I’ve always been interested in self-development, which I feel is just as important as learning the technical skills of a business. One book that I always recommend is the “Success Principles,” by Jack Canfield. This classic read is chocked full of helpful tips, such as how to deal with obstacles, finding your passion, being ready when opportunity knocks, and how to take action now!
The choice is up to you. You can sit on the sidelines and be a couch potato, or take a leap of faith, and start a business that will create a good income for you and your family. Don’t let the opportunity go by to change your life for the better.
