The virtual world is where you can find great bosses and team up with like-minded colleagues from all over the world, without having a single visa. It is where you have the freedom to work at home, at your studio, at your team’s office, or even at your bathroom.
What’s good about it is that while working part-time, full-time, or freelance, you can have an online business on the side. You can also travel and see different sunsets while working. Who wouldn’t want to be in this field when you can have all these perks, right?
The Reasons Why
However, this opportunity is not for everyone. Not all can be a successful virtual entrepreneur. Some hit big and some fail. A few are lucky enough to hit the jackpot, while some lose miserably no matter how hard they try.
If you’re just starting out and want to look out for things you should not do, remember the following:
Don’t believe in a magic bullet.
No matter how crushing it is, accept the fact that there’s is no single way to success. A lot of famous businessmen have tried many techniques many times before they got to where they are now. They didn’t have a single accurate formula at first. They found theirs the hard way.
They had risked millions of dollars and spent a lot of time figuring out what works best for them, there was no one to teach them how to do business. No one taught them what steps to take and what things to avoid. They had to figure it all out on their own because of two reasons — no one could and no one wanted to teach them.
Don’t deny yourself guidance.
You maybe clever, but you surely can’t know it all. Well, unless you’re a born supergenius, you need a person who has walked down the road you are now taking. These people will tell you not only how they got there but also let you know about the things that stopped them from getting there fast.
You can’t go to the sea and survive without knowing that it can make you die from drowning. You don’t go to war without training how to dodge bullets and fight back with your own. You need someone to teach you what you should be looking out for to have an idea how you can overcome it.
Don’t be afraid to ask.
Asking people about the things you are not an expert of is not a sign of weakness. It is actually the opposite. Think of it this way. You ask because your mind is big enough to acquire more information. There’s still space in your cup to fill so keep filling it up.
If you do this right, you can get the information you need without giving a hint of desperation. However, if you’re still hesitant, get the information you need from people who are already willing to give it to you. If you can’t find such a person, let us tell you one we know.
Is there someone like that?
As much as we may not believe it, there are people out there that are willing to guide us in this dark realm of online marketing, just like John Thornhill. He is someone who truly understands how it feels to be where you are now. He’s the best Yoda to your Luke.
Think of him as a candle who lights up other candles, to light up even more candles. However, just like this analogy, a candle will not exist forever. So while this bright stick of burning pillar can still light you up, grab the chance.
