Online Entrepreneurship – What Does It Take?

It is a fact that being successful at Inter/Network Marketing doesn’t come easily for most people. It didn’t for me. The failure rate for network and online marketing is 97%. Why is it that some succeed where most fail? What does it take to become successful?

I found, through experience, that there are 3 basic ground-rules that are essential and require serious consideration if you wish to have a successful internet marketing business.

Your ‘Why?’

The first thing you have to ask yourself is why you want to have an online business. For me, it was the thought of going back out to work in an office. I had been a Personal Assistant before my little girl, now 11. Now, I found my office skills outdated.

This is known as ‘stepping out of our comfort zone’ where we feels safe and secure.

I believe these are major personal steps that should be thought about seriously where life changing decisions are on the horizon.

I know that to change and develop personally, that transformation must come from within. To achieve greater things in our lives, we have to get uncomfortable and step out of our comfort zone.
