They say that 97% of people who try to become their own boss fail in the first two years. Today we are going to look into this for you and reveal the various challenges which await you, as well as uncovering the most common reasons people fail to make it work. So whether you are working with online affiliate programs like Empower Network or The Customer Advantage, or you are carving out a career for yourself with a particular hobby or income, you will learn what lies on the road ahead for you today.
One of the biggest myths in online business is that it’s easy to succeed. It’s not. The sooner you are able to get past all of the hype you see about instant incomes being generated, the sooner you can get down to business.
That’s not to say you won’t succeed, of course, it’s just to get you into the right frame of mind. There are many normal folks who have made the most of the internet and became their own boss. But they didn’t do it as easily as the majority of people believe it to be.
So what are the main risks and potential problems you will face in an attempt to become your own boss?
As we briefly mentioned above, the biggest problem with business on the internet is that there is so much hype it can become extremely confusing and somewhat misleading. People go into businesses with the completely wrong attitude and, as a result, never make it work.
Everybody will be telling you that you are going to be able to become your own boss with seemingly very little effort. That’s the way of the internet and almost every single home business suffers from this same flaw. The result is tons of people never get the success they deserve because they are misled into believing that it’s going to come easily.
Make no mistake about it, no matter how much potential your chosen affiliate program or online business may offer, you are still going to have to be serious and dedicated in order to make it work.
Most people do not ‘fail’ to make money on the internet, they quit. There is a difference between failing and quitting. You learn from failing, you keep going and eventually reach success.
The majority of people fall into this category and they don’t fail because they ‘cannot’ accomplish their goal but rather because they get sucked into this false mentality of treating their business a a hobby or ‘easy way out’, which it is not.
The same amount of effort needs to go into your online business otherwise it will not succeed. A great philosopher once said “The man who thinks he can and the man who thinks he can’t both have one thing in common. they are both right.” Over 90% of becoming your own boss is mental, you need the mental strength to keep on pushing yourself when the going gets tough and you are out there on your own.
Take a look in the next home business you join and you will see these situations holding countless people back. Every affiliate program suffers from this, we have seen it in both Empower Network and Dynamic Digital Enterprise to name but two. Get serious with your new venture, you won’t be able to move forward until you do.
