    Creating the Mindset for Your Internet Business

    We all have heard how many people have become successful in their internet

    business. Perhaps, you have also tried getting into the online market yourself but

    unfortunately, you were not able to succeed unlike the others.

    Starting a business online is just like starting a physical business, except that you

    will have to do all your transactions online and you are able to reach a global

    market. The same difficulties may also be experienced when starting an online

    business although you do not have to worry about putting up establishments or

    renting stalls.

    However, one thing is the same for all different types of businesses so that they

    can become successful the right mindset. When you do your startup with the

    right approach then you will be able to get ahead in the race.

    What are the qualities that you should possess in order to succeed in

    an online business?

    Before you go about things, it is also important that you have the right knowledge

    when it comes to doing an online business. You cannot just take on the offensive

    side without making the right plans. The lack of planning when it comes to taking

    actions into your business, without that you are likely to fail in the industry.

    Starting up any business, whether online or in the physical world, would also

    need a lot of determination. Although people may say that fate determines how

    your business would go, you can actually alter the destiny of your company,

    especially if you are determined in making it successful. It is very important that

    you take away all the negative vibes that you have and feel confident about what

    you are about to undergo.

    Discipline is also needed to become successful in your online business. In a

    physical business, you will have to get up every morning to visit your

    establishment and see how things are going around. When you have it online, you

    can check out any transactions anytime of the day giving you more freedom when

    it comes to managing your time.

    However, this would sometimes make one lazy and complacent on the comings

    and goings of the business. Since you can have the luxury of time, you are likely

    to put off the things you would have to do for the day and instead get them done

    tomorrow. Transactions are also made online and various tools can be used to

    make managing of the business a little easier. This enables you to manage the

    entire business on your own and without the need of help from any other person.

    Unfortunately, you could not have anybody else with which to entrust the

    transactions of your business and you cannot get help in case you are not able to

    fulfill your role.

    While the right mindset in having an online business would make you more likely

    to succeed in the undertaking, you must still remember that it is not a walk in the

    park. You would still need to exert some more effort as you would in a physical

    business to ensure that you succeed in your online business.

    Your Internet Business How Far Can It Take You?

    Now that you have already decided on setting up an internet business, you may

    be asking where it can take you. It is normal to feel a little hesitant during this

    phase, especially if it is your first time to try out on this venture. You may feel a

    little stressed out about the whole thing but do not worry, you will be able to

    manage everything.

    Where the Business Can Take You

    Any type of business can bring you success, whether it is an online set-up or a

    physical store, if it is managed the right way. Remember that it does not only take

    time to reap good benefits, it would also need some effort from you. Toiling

    around does not increase your chances in having a successful internet business

    (although you may take lots of breaks if you want to).

    When you have become triumphant in your online business venture, where does

    it lead you? Most people would agree that it will give one the most freedom when

    it comes to managing your time. If you are the type of person who would love to

    stay at home and be with the kids and family, this is definitely the best job for

    you. In addition to that, you will already have the luxury of time to do all the

    things you want to do but neither had the time nor the money to do so.

    Not only is it beneficial for you in terms of your time, you will also start to

    experience financial freedom. Of course, it is what we all want. Reaping lots of

    cash without having to work too much for it is definitely a tempting offer and the

    closest way to achieving this goal is through a successful online business.

    People Who Have Succeeded

    Although most of us are hesitant about having a business online, many people

    have bravely took the risk and reaped many great benefits because of it. All their

    efforts have paid off as they already start to experience having financial freedom

    and the luxury of time to do the things they want.

    What is Their Secret Formula?

    These people did not have lots of experience in marketing or handling a business.

    However, the courageously took the risk and the uncompromising determination

    that they possessed proved the decision right as they became successful in their

    business venture and continue to enjoy the advantages of it.

    For this reason, there is no place for you to have apprehensions because it is

    possible that you also achieve the same thing as they did. If you are equipped

    with courage and determination to undergo this seemingly daunting (but not

    really) task of taking on an online business.

    If you read on, you will be able to get some more pointers that you can add to

    your determination and mindset to help you become triumphant in having a

    business online. Now that everything is within your reach, you must grab the

    opportunity that may come only once in your life.

    Chapter 3: Unleashing the Power of the Law of Attraction on Your Internet Business

    Unleashing the Power of the Law of Attraction on

    Your Internet Business

    As you start to go about your online business, you may start to realize that there

    seems to be too much to do. It can be a big problem to figure out what to do and

    how to get them right. With all the many business sprouting like mushrooms all

    over the Internet, competition can be tough and it is very critical that the right

    things be done in starting up your business. If it fails from the start, you might

    never have the chance to get back on your feet again.

    However, did you know that Quantum Physics has had to do with your online

    business? Now, do not be scared about this question. You do not have to go back

    to school just to be able to learn this and make your online business successful.

    The theory that will be introduced here is quite simple and can easily be

    implemented by you even if you did not have too much knowledge about

    Quantum Physics.

    Quantum Physics Big Secret

    There is a law that claims to have its roots from Quantum Physics. According to

    the Law of Attraction, every single thought of a person has an energy

    accompanying it and this energy can be used by that person in order to attract

    other people into what he or she is thinking. Because of this, it is very important

    that one knows how to make use of this possibility so that it can be used to ones

    prime advantage.

    For one, it is very important that one knows what one wants to get. When you

    have realized this, you can ask the whole world for it and feel as if that goal you

    want to achieve or the object you want to have is already with you. Now, you will

    have to open yourself to receiving that goal or that object but let go of any

    attachment that comes with it. Thinking about negative thoughts would result to

  • The Digital Entrepreneur Mindset

    - 13 -

    a negative outcome but if you follow these principles and think about what you

    want to have, your desires will come to you.

    How This Law Can Bring You Success

    In the same manner that the Law of Attraction works, your thoughts can also

    create success in your online business. Now, being apprehensive about starting

    the business may only cause you to not perform well or even fail in your business.

    However, if you have the clear goals that you want to achieve, it is likely to you

    can reach them.

    However, you should be careful in setting goals and avoid moving targets. It is

    hard to set your eyes on something that is not fixed as it could ruin the game plan

    that you have already planned to reach the goal. Once you have set a goal, reach

    it, and when you do, you can set a higher goal so that you can achieve much more.

    This way, you know what you want and start believing that you already have it.

    When you do, you will naturally do things that can make you reach it and your

    success follows!

    Looking for the Right Internet Business Opportunity

    Now that you are already equipped with the right mindset in starting an online

    business, the next thing for you to decide is what type of industry you should be

    entering. While it is important that you have some background knowledge on the

    type of trade you will be undergoing, there is not much need for it as there are

    already many tools and online help you can get.

    Besides aptitude, inclination into the work is also needed. Surely, it is boring to

    do something you do not really like to do, is it not? It would help a lot that fun is

    mixed with your job so that it will not feel like such a burden. When you do not

    like the nature of your business, you are likely to tire and soon enough, you will

    have to stop pursuing this endeavor.

    Unfortunately, even if you have found the right online business for you in terms

    of aptitude and inclination, it is still not a guarantee that you will succeed one

    hundred percent in it. Many people have abused the popularity of online business

    that they too have made a moneymaking scheme out of it. What hurts is that you,

    the person who is looking for a good business opportunity to start with, are the

    one who gets affected.

    This is the reason why everyone is advised to be careful in picking the right online

    business. We can easily be swayed by the number of advertisements promising a

    quick return on investment and even gets it doubled, without much effort. You

    have to remember that not all of these offers are genuine; some of them are just

    frauds and scammers.

    When you look for the right online business for you, make sure that you get one

    from a reliable source, which will be discussed later on in this eBook.

    Internet Business Preliminary Steps

    Since you will be starting an online business, naturally, you will need a computer

    that is connected to the Internet. This will be your first step in making a

    connection into the Internet world. Through this, you can also have access to the

    many wonderful opportunities that having an online business can bring you.

    Now, it is important that you are careful with your choices of where to start your

    online business. Otherwise, you could be scammed, as they will only make a run

    on your money. Fortunately, many sites can already be trusted in providing you a

    good start in your online business. Below are some examples:-

    1) GetAFreelancer (http://www.getafreelancer.com)

    GetAFreelancer, or GAF as it is more popularly known to its users, is a

    well-known site where freelancers and service buyers meet up. If you are

    starting an online business that aims to provide any Internet solution, then

    you can get lots of buyers as well as providers for a job here. You can

    register in the site free which makes it ideal when you are just starting out

    your online business. However, you may also pay a minimal fee so that you

    can bid on more projects and get many more privileges.

    2) EUFreelance (http://www.eufreelance.com)

    EUFreelancer is the European counterpart of GAF. It works just the same

    way as GAF does, only that the currency used in the transactions such as

    payments to a service provider or payments from a service buyer is in

    Euros because this is a site that is geared for the European market.

    3) ScriptLance (http://www.scriptlance.com)

    http://www.getafreelancer.com/http://www.eufreelance.com/http://www.scriptlance.com/

  • The Digital Entrepreneur Mindset

    ScriptLance is also another great site that you can use for your online

    business. You can also sign up for free, bid on the projects and then are

    paid for your services. If you want to be the service buyer for you online

    business, you can also get cheap providers from the site.

    Many other sites can also help you in starting your online business. While these

    sits are already trusted, it is still a wide idea to be educated when it comes to this

    business because you could still be scammed by the service buyers.

    Taking Your Internet Business Forward with Social

    Networking

    Taking the offensive is not the only thing you will be considering when starting

    your online business. Sometimes, you will have to do certain things in order to

    lull employers and service buyers to get your service. Here are some ways you

    could do it:-

    1) Creating a website

    This task may sound a little hard and daunting but it does not have to.

    There are actually many premade sites available over the Internet and all

    you really have to do is add content to your website. The good thing about

    these sites such as Webs (http://www.webs.com) and many others provide

    premade templates and you can register on the site free.

    Content is very important to promote your online business. First, you will

    have to make sure that it becomes visible by using certain keywords in

    your website that are centered on your online business.

    2) Making a blog

    Another great way to promote your online business as well as your website

    is to make a blog. Just make sure that when you create content for your

    blog, you do not make outright selling but instead do it with subtlety. You

    can do this by talking about a topic that is close to what your online

    business is offering and then place links to your site in the blog entry.

    Blogspot (http://www.blogspot.com) and Wordpress

    (http://www.wordpress.com) are the most popular sites giving free blog

    accounts to its users.

    http://www.webs.com/http://www.blogspot.com/http://www.wordpress.com/

    3) Using social networking sites

    A good way to connect to a wider audience is through social networking

    sites. You can connect with potential customers by making a Facebook

    account (http://www.facebook.com) and Twitter

    (http://www.twitter.com). They are easy to use and you can register

    through these sites free. Then, you can make status updates and other

    news updates centered on the topic through these accounts to attract a

    bigger audience

    Chapter 7: When You Love Your Work, You Dont Work Anymore

    - 23 -

    When You Love Your Work, You Dont Work

    Anymore

    The best way that you can enjoy work is to think that you are not doing work at

    all. When you feel like you are having fun with what you do, it does not become a

    burden anymore and it would just seem like you are doing a pastime and start

    earning something from it.

    When it comes to your online business, the same principle is also applied.

    However, you do not have to worry about what opportunities you will be

    undertaking because there are a lot of these in the Internet. The sites that offer

    work has a wide range of opportunities so that it is possible for you to choose

    which aspect you like and accept work from there.

    We all know that aptitude and inclination is important when you take on an

    online business. However, it is more important to have the inclination because

    knowledge can still be worked on. If you are not interested with a certain

    opportunity online, it is likely that you will get tired from doing things repeatedly

    and you will have to quit later on, leading you to failure in your online business.

    Sites such as GAF and ScriptLance give you the chance to choose from among

    many categories to which your expertise falls in. Of course, your expertise would

    also include those that you are interested in doing (which you should also have

    certain knowledge on). After which, you can start bidding on projects related to

    the category and then accept work that you like to do.

    You can then gauge the level of knowledge and interest you have based on the

    project and if you feel that you are not up for it, you can cancel it else you risk the

    quality. However, if you do like it, it is likely that you would also be able to

    produce good quality without having to exert too much effort. After which, your

  • The Digital Entrepreneur Mindset

    - 24 -

    employer should become satisfied, get more of your work and then you succeed in

    your online business.

    Chapter 8: Balancing Personal and Professional Life

    Balancing Personal and Professional Life

    Work can often get in the way of the things you want to do in life. In fact, it is only

    when people retire that they are can do what they have always wanted to do, but

    never had the luxury of time and money. If you are one with a top rank in your

    company, it is unlikely that you have enough time to spend with your kids, your

    wife, and yourself.

    However, everything will change when you go into online business. Because work

    can be done through the Internet, you can easily work from home without having

    to wake up so early to prepare, eat, dress up, and travel to the office. You do not

    have to worry about being caught in heavy traffic because you will not ever have

    to if you stay at home.

    Thus, your online business will give you more time to take care of yourself, get a

    good nights rest and take your time. You can even manage your time whichever

    way you want it to. Just so long as you are able to commit to deadlines and

    submit your work on time, you can have the luxury of time to spend for other

    more important things like self and family.

    While you might think that your online business will not be able to generate as

    much income as your day job would, think again. You can still earn as much

    depending on how much time you spend in work. You may also be able to get a

    provider that offers to pay higher rates for your services especially if they find you

    reliable and a provider of good quality services.

    Now, your wife or husband does not have to nag you so much or quarrel you

    about not being able to spend time with him or her. Your kids will never have to

    get mad at you for not playing with them. If you are single, you can spend more

    time with your partner, your friends, or yourself and do anything you want to do.

    Taking Second Chances When Primary Efforts Fail

    Whether a business is based online or has a physical outlet, it is still not safe from

    drawbacks, losses, or failures. Now, if you are one who is still starting or planning

    to start an online business, you must face it that it is inevitable to have failure.

    However, it is how you get back up again, and this is what actually becomes the

    measure of your success.

    Many great businesses have had major losses when they were still starting out.

    Even if they have been established companies, they still are not safe from

    experiencing a loss or failure in the business. This is the reason why you should

    be able to prepare for this first so you can make a great comeback even if you fail.

    It can be disheartening to see your online business crumble to pieces after much

    effort. If you are freelancing on your writing services and saw that your clients

    have started to withdraw their job orders from you, do not lose hope.

    After a major crisis such as this, it may help that you take a break first and think

    things clearly and thoroughly. You might want to determine the causes of your

    failure. Why did the clients withdraw their orders? Was it because of the quality

    of your work? Was it because you did not submit work on time causing a strain

    on their business?

    When you have figured these things out, decide on how you can improve the next

    time around. You might decide on taking lessons to improve the quality of your

    work. You might also want to be able to manage your time better. If you believe

    that you cannot do the jobs on your own, try to recruit other reliable people and

    form a team.

  • The Digital Entrepreneur Mindset

    When you stage a comeback, it can be hard to get the clients back. You might

    want to reassure your former clients that you will try to do better this time. If you

    get new clients, you could also promise them quality and work on that promise, in

    order to revive the reputation of your online business.

    What to Do When Your Internet Business Becomes

    a Success

    Now that you have started reviving the state of your online business, you should

    do your best to keep the momentum. When you become a reliable provider of

    services, continuous workload will come to you. This assures you that you can get

    work every day and not have to worry about getting a dry spell.

    However, when such workload comes to you, there could be a time that failure

    comes back again. Your success could overwhelm you and you might start

    accepting projects after projects that you are not able to catch up anymore. You

    can do this only if you believe you can fulfill each work guarantee you give to your

    clients. If you cannot, you had better know how to decline them.

    We all know that success could take us as far as we want them to but accepting

    too many projects in a single time does not always guarantee success to your

    online business. You should be able to control the comings and goings of your

    online business to maintain the success. One wrong move can make it crumble so

    you better had to be careful. Once you are able to work with what you have and

    work well with it, because it is what you want to achieve, you will surely reach

    that goal.

    Now, it is also inevitable that your online business will need to have upgrades

    occasionally to keep up with the times. While for you, this could mean another

    expense to pay for, think of it the other way. While you may be investing your

    money, you will be acquiring the knowledge you need in order for your success to

    be maintained. Besides, you will be able to reap the benefits soon enough and for

    a one-time fee, you can actually be able to take twice, or three times the money

    you have invested.

    Conclusion

    So now you have all it takes to launch a great online business and to keep it

    running. Use these steps immediately and add more value to your life.
