When it comes to starting out on your own, setting up a new business is scary. Where do you start? What do you do? There are seemingly always more questions than answers and procrastination is so easy on the internet with all the distractions under the guise of ‘research’.
Having been a ‘Serial Entrepreneur’ for most of my life, I know first hand the fear of failure can be at times paralysing and the temptation to ‘research and learn a bit more BEFORE you start’ is so tempting. However, there is only one way to start and that is to take the first step.
As basic as it sounds, the first step really is simple:
Don’t hold yourself back from your dreams… Start – Take Action & Physically Do Something!
Create the right mindset for your Internet Marketing Business
Basic? Simple? However we are quite often our own worst enemy. Looking around on the internet, we assume everyone knows more or that we aren’t qualified or good enough. We need to research more, learn more. Its time to stop with those kinds of thoughts and actually DO SOMETHING.
Whether you have never started a business before, or had very little training in business at all, the easiest (and not so paralysing) way to start an Internet Marketing Business is to work with a mentor. Learn from their mistakes and work to a structured plan. Even for someone like me who is no stranger to business start-ups and has a Marketing company geared towards small business development, I found working alongside a mentor kept me focussed on developing my own Internet Marketing Business.
The second step, yet fundamentally the MOST IMPORTANT is getting your mindset right. Not only will this get you started in the right direction, it will keep going when things get tough. Things happen and not everything will work the way you think it should, but that doesn’t matter. With the right mindset you keep pushing. When you fail, you get up again. And you keep learning and trying new things that make you uncomfortable.
The right mindset enables you to set your vision straight and look at situations differently. For ordinary individuals, problems are considered obstacles but for many Internet Marketing Entrepreneurs, these are challenges. Aside from being a positive thinker, you must have strong belief in your objectives. With the right mindset, you can think straight at all times and reach achievable objectives.
So what are you going to actually DO TODAY?
