First, you need to understand that it isn’t really easy to be one of the few successful entrepreneurs online.
Through a combination of wishful thinking and ridiculous hype, most people think that they can just throw up a website and start monetizing it, making easy money in no time flat and becoming one of the most successful entrepreneurs because they found their magic bullet. This is not the case.
While in some ways it’s a lot easier to launch an online business than it is to launch a brick and mortar business, in other ways it’s a lot harder to succeed with your online business.
After all, because it’s so easy to launch an online business there are a lot of people doing it whether they have any entrepreneur characteristics or not. This creates a pretty crowded marketplace that you’re going to have to fight through to get seen and to get any money.
Because of this a desire for freedom, even a burning desire for freedom, is not going to be enough to get you to become one of the handful of a successful entrepreneurs online.
You have to be patient.
Online businesses are quick to launch, but take a long time to master. You have to be persistent. Online businesses take time to grow and develop, and you can put in a lot of time and energy before you see your first paycheck.
