THE FIRST OF ONLY 4 WAYS
The first legitimate way to earn money online or in general is through Entrepreneurship. This is where you are the originator. You're the innovator, the one who invents. You come up with the product, the service, or the options. This is where you decide how much it cost or how much money you or anyone else earns. When you're the entrepreneur you design the infrastructure and control the entire operation from start to finish. Taking on greater than normal financial risk is not an option for those who are "THE REAL DEAL".
The truth is in the home based business industry there are a lot of wanna bes and pretenders. Very few of those people are actual entrepreneurs about 1-3%. We've been talking about branding since practically forever and only a few know what that means. The awesome thing about this topic is you don't have to actually be a true entrepreneur by definition to have or create success. What you do have to have is the skills of an entrepreneur.
You must be able to recognize when to do what and how to do it. This comes with proper education, training, direction and guidance. There is so much information on professional business. The truth is all the mistakes, and failures that have ever been made is information that you can find everywhere. The key is finding the right information from the right people who are going to be honest and transparent. Especially people who are not too lazy to publish the content. There is a reason why good content or the content you're looking for doesn't seem to exist.
Those reasons could be the following:
1. unrealistic expectations
2. looking for shortcuts, secret tricks, and advances that don't exist
3. looking for success through the association of people who are already successful.
4. not willing to listen, learn or take action.
5. you've heard it all before!
ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS THE MOST DIFFICULT
This doesn't have to be the most difficult. By nature its the toughest because it requires an enormous amount of critical and creative thinking. It is directly affected by your willingness to learn and your ability to learn. Your success is completely at the mercy of how you process information. Being an entrepreneur really means that you're able to identify and develop ways to take what you see and turn it into a profit. Success by entrepreneurship is all trial and error. For the new and inexperience the masses will evade or avoid this option for countless reasons. Let me list a few.
- Fear of rejection or the unknown.
- Lack of ability to think for oneself
- Lack of self motivation
- Refusal to come out of the comfort zone
I'm sure there are more probably way to many to list or talk about. One thing that is for sure and certain about this. Even though its the most difficult it is the most legit and most respected and should be respected above anything and everything outside of it. The other 3 ways should be considered much less in value. The truth is most true Entrepreneurs are not respected until they make it and a lot of times they are still not even after they do. Why is that? Because most have to go against the grains to accomplish success and when they do it doesn't always sit right with all those who doubted em or spoke against their endeavours.
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR
Remember you don't have to be one to have the skills or to work like one. How do you know if you have what it takes to be one? It's simple in the digital/information age the majority of successful people and entities provide free education & training in plain site that can help an individual make it from the start to success. The reason the content is put out for free is because people like myself and them have come to the conclusion only about 1-3% will actually take action on that information. But to answer the question ultimately. To know if you're true or not.
Do you make excuses?
When successful influential people tell you what to do to get results do you listen?
Do you quit, give up or delay by procrastination when something is presented to you as a challenge or hard work?
Do you embrace challenges or run away to evade them?
When you don't understand something do you ask questions?
How well do you accept feedback and take correction?
Are you accountable to anyone? Do you seek help?
No human is born successful, and certainly not born with the skills to be successful. We all have to be taught, educated, trained and led by example the question is are you willing to follow an example until you learn how to become an entrepreneur. Before you can lead you must follow.
