When you first dream of owning your own online business you are filled with a sense of empowerment and freedom. You imagine how you will build it, how quickly it will flourish, how you will be able to enjoy more time with the family, take more vacations, etc… Then you start the process and you quickly realize that you work more hours than you did at your traditional job, you have even less free time, and it’s not becoming profitable as quickly as you thought it would.
This is where many would-be entrepreneurs lose their resolve and throw in the towel. If you are able to get past that hump, you come to realize that there was never a guarantee of becoming a millionaire overnight, and that every successful venture starts with determination, resolve, and lots and lots of hard work. Once you can approach the venture with a more positive mindset, patience and discipline, you will be happy to put in those additional hours, because you realize you are no longer working toward someone else’s dream, you are working this hard to make your dreams come true.
