I have learned more from your software over the last week than the last two

If you were to ask ten experts
what's necessary to become successful in online business,
there's no doubt you'd get quite an assortment of answers.
Most experts will tell you you'll need a website first. Others
will tell you your number one priority should be an opt-in list.
Still others will tell you a product or service of your own
should come first.
The fact is that growing a successful web business will likely
require ALL of those items eventually, and more. But there IS
one item, one single aspect of success that seems to be very
hard for many people to achieve...
I like to call it "stick-to-it-ive-ness".
Never heard that term before?
Dictionary.com defines it as such:
Definition: dogged perseverance; resolute tenacity
Here's a story to illustrate this point...
A sharp fellow named Marty wanted to start an Internet
business so he hired a well-known guru to coach him. After
introductions and a chat about Marty's financial goals, it was
time for Marty to get down to business.
The guru's first suggestion for Marty was that he start
researching potentially profitable niches. He gave him detailed
directions and a few resources to use. His request to Marty was
to send him just two ideas so he could evaluate them for him.
A few days later Marty responded saying that he thought the
suggestion made by his coach was nearly impossible. Marty told
him, "I really can't do that, it's too hard. Can't you just
ME what I should be getting into?"
The response from the mentor was a surprise to Marty -- but it
eventually led to his ultimate success. What were those magic
words the mentor gave Marty?
He replied with these pearls of wisdom...
"Marty, if you think you can't then you're probably right."
Marty understood right away what his coach was getting at. He
wanted more than anything to be a success online, and now he
realized what had been holding him back all along -- his own
lack of perseverance.
He had a tendency to give up when
success did not come quickly or easily. His own thoughts about
what he thought he could and could not do were holding him back.
Marty decided that very day that he could in fact do what his
coach suggested to find a profitable niche.

That's right, that's the
moment Marty made the decision that he COULD do it and that he
would not give up. Not only did Marty find a very profitable
niche, he found a handful of profitable niches. He started his
first internet business selling a hard good product and it
turned out to be a total success. He had finally turned the
Perhaps it is time you asked yourself what you could do if you
removed "I can't" from your vocabulary so you weren't limited by
what you "think" are your abilities.
Marty actually knew very little about the niche he started in
and even so his business took off. He learned to research on the
web and in turn, he discovered all he needed to know about his
product as he went along.
He also had no idea how to build a website, but he learned that
too. Marty's success had nothing to do with lots of startup
money because he started with just a few hundred bucks.
The fact is, success in business can be attained despite lack of
talent, investment capital, knowledge about the product and a
whole host of other "excuses" people come up with about why they
can't start an Internet business.
However, it is a well-known fact, especially among successful
business owners that success DOES have everything to do with
determination to succeed and "stick-to-it-ive-ness" each time
new challenges come your way.
Of course I am not recommending that you throw hard earn money
away because you don't want to give up, please use common sense.
Here's an idea of whether
you've given your business a fair shake or not -- if you have
these four steps completed and six months later you're still
broke, it may be time to try another niche...
1. You researched your niche and
think you can fill a need
2. You have a
3. You have at least 2-3 GOOD traffic sources
4. You're collecting opt-in email
addresses and you're following up with prospects
After all that is done and you
still haven't made any money, maybe it's time to
try a new niche.
There are millions of hungry buyers in thousands of niches
waiting to buy. Keep plugging away until you find a need to meet
in a specific niche and fill that need. It will only take a few
months to get to know your market.
Every single month, there are millions of people searching for
information on how to make money on the internet, yet less than
3% of those people ever actually make any money. The business
owners who make money are the ones who don't back down when
faced with the same challenges that all online marketers face.
Don't be one of the 97% who give up right before you strike
gold. The possibilities are unlimited for you, once you erase "I
can't" from your vocabulary, and replace it with "stick-to-it-ive-ness".
See ya in a few weeks...
