Online Entrepreneur (roads To Take And Lessons To Learn)

Online Entrepreneur (Part 1)

There are many ways to become an online entrepreneur but there are a few things that they all have in common. Hard work!!! Yes, I know, it can be said about most things in life and it's true. Another commodity is knowledge...

Knowledge is power and without it, no amount of hard work will have us moving forward. If you don't know where you’re going, you can never get lost, nor can you expect to end up were you want to be. The problem with the internet these days is that there is such a vast amount of information out there and lot of the time it is misleading. Sadly I speak from experience.

Now, the form of online Entrepreneurship that I speak of is none other than affiliate marketing. This is a vast field with many avenues to take and for someone just starting out with high hopes and wanting to be independent it can also be quite daunting. Not to mention the amount of scams that are out there. Finding the right and relevant information can be quite frustrating, especially when you don't know where to start.

When I first started out, I tried many different sites. Most of them ended up being a waste of time, effort and money, but in the long run it taught me many hard lessons. I gave up twice only to get back into it. It seemed that I was destined to become an affiliate entrepreneur and here I am again and for the first time I am seeing success. But let me explain.

One of my idols, Richard Branson said something that I have taken to heart, ‘To make money, you have to spend money .’ And so I did. The first thing I invested in my 3rd and final time around was an education, or better put a training center with all the resources, information, tutorials and online help that I could get. I felt a veil being lifted from this unclear perspective that I used to have about the online world.

First I started a 30day course which amazed me with the amount of information it contained. Every day they send you an email with your lessons. These lessons are step by step instructions to set up this online empire that you (the entrepreneur) wish to create. It covers everything; how to generate traffic, how to choose your niche, get your website up and running, they host your site too which in turn is a bargin but all of that is only scratching the surface.

Make no mistake though, its hard work… but we knew that before we ever started. Now, I can tell you more about how to become an online entrepreneur, but you would probably rather see it for yourself and make up your own mind. After all, I am only here to show you the door.
