Once again, thank you for visiting, if there is anything you’d like to add, feel free to leave it in the comments below. I don’t boost on knowing everything, so if there is something that I made a mistake on calling me out. Online Marketing isn’t something we should go at it alone, always remember that we are in it together so we should hold each other accountable.
Online Marketing isn’t a get out of jail free card or the gold from the gold rush days. You need to be in it for the long term and sometimes that means getting a job for your current situation. For some I know that’s not what you want to hear and I’m sure there are plenty of gurus out there that will tell you that you can make triple digit paycheck in a week. If you’re looking for something short term, I suggest getting a job.
You’ve got a dream
Martin Luther King said that years ago and even today, I can’t say his dream is completely fulfilled but we are coming close to it. Your dream of owning an Online Business is just like that, though it might be fulfilled a little bit faster. What is your dream? Owning your own home, being able to go on vacation when and where you want? Becoming debt free, for some of you, that dream is
almost as elusive that you need to make a long-term goal to achieve.
Online Marketing needs to be a Long Term Goal, for anything short term you need a job. If that’s flipping burgers for a living then so be it, the main thing is that your working for a better future. That’s what I tell myself when I’m working my day to day job, that one of these days I can just tell them goodbye.
Juggling your Online business and life
Building a business is hard, trying to juggle that with a job is even harder. After getting off from work, the last thing you want to do is do more work. If you find a niche that you’re excited about, this won’t be a problem because it’s more like going home to hang out with your best friends. Though there are some things of this business that might seem to drag on, like that dream that is still unfulfilled, be like Martin and keep fighting the good fight.

Make a schedule and stick with it
This one advice is a killer for some online adventures, if you don’t schedule it sometimes it won’t get done. You just need to schedule yourself into your life. The idea of getting back your own time can be very enticing and since your home, everyone might be fighting for your time. The first piece of advice that I would give everyone is that you need to schedule your Online Business into your life, that training that you’ve wanted to go through for some time, schedule it in and do it.
It helps to communicate to others when you are going to work, this helps you and them. Being with the ones you love is important, but even they can trample over your work if you’re not careful. So letting them know that this is the time you work on your business, sets a parameter of expectation.
Even when you get off work, 2 hours is a good time to set for your business building time. Let others know and that your not to be disturbed until that 2 hours is done. Consider it building up your business muscles, just like exercise, you need to set a time to do it.
Create an Office
You can get creative in this, for some setting out a section of your home dedicated to working helps. For me, I have a table in the living room where my work is done. Not out of choice, but the necessity and my wife know, if my headphones are on, I’m working.
Another thing that helps is music, it’s a great way to set the tone when your writing. For me, I love the music in movies such as Star Wars or Raiders of the lost Ark. Whatever works for you, music sets the tone for your office and keeps you focused.
