I started my first online business in 2006 and I pretty much made every mistake in the book. I decided to learn how to create a website from scratch and write a sales page....It was disastrous but a learning experience worth the pain.
It took a few years before I made any significant money online but I learned some very valuable lessons about this business since starting.
1. You have to believe that success is possible for you.
2. Helping people comes first, making money comes second.
3. Ready...Fire...Aim. Get it out there and fix stuff later.
4. Stay humble stay focused.
