Hi, again! If you are reading this then I guess my post from yesterday didn’t turn you away! Lol! Awesome! Again, like I said yesterday, I just want to share with you what I have learned over the past 11 years that has stopped me from making money online so you won’t do what I did.
5. Buy a lot of books and courses but NEVER apply the information. “Hi. My name is Barbara, and I am on information junkie. I have spent thousands of dollars on books, courses, webinars and online coaching but have not finished ANY of them. And they are still sitting on my bookshelves or taking up space on my flash drive to this day.” I am officially on information overload. So much so that when I research a topic about making money online I already know at least 50% of the information that is presented in the article or post. I have so much information in me that when someone asks an online business related question I know the answer and shock myself with how much information I can share related to it. However, all of this information has paralyzed me. I know so much of what to do that I don’t do anything. Mostly due to fear of failure. I have to fight with myself all the time not to buy another course or ebook, but in the back of my mind, I kept thinking that maybe THIS will be the answer to my prayers. But now that problem is fixed. I am at a place financially that if I pay for another course then I don’t have money for inventory. And, I have finally gotten to the point where I only have enough money for inventory. I have joined a few FB books and paid membership sites, so if I can’t learn from that then I may need to reevaluate this whole business altogether.
6. Do all of this alone. You need a support person, accountability partner, mastermind group…whatever works for you. Because, to be honest, if you could do this alone, then you would already be consistently making money by now. I have people in my life that are where I am trying to be, and they constantly motivate me to keep going. Not by calling me every day and saying, “You can do it!” But by living the life that I hope to someday have. These people inspire me to keep going, without even realizing it!
7. Never take action. Not taking action will keep you broke. Trust me, I know from personal experience. You have to get to a place where you are sick and tired of always being sick and tired. Your WHY? has to be bigger than your fears. I am happy to say that, while I am still a work in progress, this is becoming more of my reality each day. The small victories I have received inspire me to keep going. But you can only have these victories if you do something! Don’t think. Just do!
I hope this 2 part post encouraged you to keep moving forward! Making money online is definitely do-able! I hope to be able to feature real moms that are KILLING it online in an effort to inspire ALL of us!.
