I sometimes suffer from the same plague infecting other online entrepreneurs – starting one thing before I finish another, so I really have to stay the course from now on.
Since I was 3 years old, I’ve been an avid golfer – 3 months away from turning pro after college until I found out my son was on his way, which threw a kink in my plans (I wouldn’t change it for the world). One thing that crept up in my short game for years was not following through. Nothing worse than chipping or putting and realizing you let your fear of flying past the hole stop you short.
I have to apply the same mindset to my Internet marketing efforts. My Dad used to say, “If you don’t follow through, the ball’s definitely not going to get there. If you do, then you just might have a chance to sink it.”
I hear ya, Dad!
With all the products out there teaching this business, and all of your options (product owner, affiliate, member site, etc.,) it’s hard to stay focused – especially if the profits are building gradually and your mouth’s watering over those get-rich-quick schemes you see so often.
Do yourself a favor and buckle down and follow through on one business model before you branch out to another. At this stage of the game, I’m juggling many different things – I’m a product owner, I’m an affiliate, I run a PLR site, I still ghostwrite for some people once in awhile, and I’m launching a new membership site.
But I try to wait until one thing is off and running before I burn the candle at both ends.
