Starting an online business on my own was one of the most difficult tasks that I had to do. It was even more difficult than being employed, but a lot more rewarding and satisfying. I have a friend who is doing SEO analysis with a UK-based firm and is planning to start his own SEO Company. He’s going to start it out by advertising free SEO analysis. I gave him a tip and he said he will always remember it. I told him to be curious all the time and to not be afraid to ask questions. You can never assume that you know everything even if you are already considered an ‘expert’ in your field. Allow yourself to be inquisitive about things that look intriguing to you. Feed your senses and do not be afraid to learn.
Selling good products and services online is usually a result of someone’s curiosity. Remember that entrepreneurs learn by trial and error. There is no such thing as a business that started and earned a lot of revenue right away. Those kinds of success stories are exceptions to the rule. There are no “fool proof” businesses. Even these tips that I am telling you are not perfect. You should follow what you think is right for you. You will never really know how it is like to fail and succeed unless you start experiencing it. Every entrepreneur experience challenges and successes, you have to be ready to face all of them with a brave face. If you are looking for the perfect online business, stop looking because it does not exist.
