You May Be Nearer Success Than You Think!
I felt inspired to write this blog post after reading a couple of Simone's posts and speaking to my Webmaster last night. You can see Simone's posts below. I've also written this blog post to encourage members who may be struggling and not seeing success yet. It will happen if you persevere!
The majority of us know that it takes time to build any business; it doesn't happen just overnight; it happens after challenges and hard work, and a desire to move forward. An online business takes even more work in the early days. It can be difficult, especially for new members who are continually writing content and not seeing any results. However, thankfully there are numerous success stories here at Wealthy Affiliate, where all of a sudden, the tide starts turning! The first sale comes, and then normally more follow, providing you continue to write quality blog posts and to do the necessary.
Although I have been making money online regularly since 2007, I have always had an offline business which I have run alongside my online business. One of the reasons is that I'm very much an outdoor person and have a great love of the countryside. My off-line business takes me to some fantastic places around the East Anglian countryside. However, to a certain extent, my offline business is holding me back from moving my online business forward quicker.
Simone mentioned in her blog posts about reflecting on what we have achieved in the previous month; this is something that I don't particularly do. I believe part of this is due to being so busy that I don't always have time to think properly, which isn't clever! It's important to have time for family and friends and have time to reflect on everything.
Simone's post had me thinking about what am I really achieving? It also happened that I spoke to my excellent Webmaster in the US last night, and we were looking at the facts and figures!
Thankfully, I am making money online regularly; we worked out that I would not have to do huge amounts more to make my online business into a full-time business. I say this because I believe that there are many members here who are on the brink of success but probably give up far too early! My recommendation is to keep going through the training and take action at every available opportunity. And, of course, to see what successful people are doing and to be consistent.
My long-term plan has always been to sell my offline business eventually and move to full-time online. I believe there are many more members here who can do the same if they just push forward a bit harder and spend less time on unnecessary practices!
A Few Thoughts And Questions To Conclude
