Responding to Challenges while Building a Top Online Business

Well, here you are.  You’ve taken the plunge, started your online business.  You are so excited, you can hardly sleep!  You know that people are going to rush to your website and start ordering your product!  Yes!

Or, No?  It’s been 2 weeks and your website counter shows that only 10 people have even looked at the website and only 1 person has bought your product.  Well, you talk to your mentor and you get ideas on how to tweak the website.  But it’s been 4 weeks and only 20 people have visited your site and still just 1 person has bought your product.

What are you going to do?  Do you throw in the towel and give up? Do you quit and say that it’s hopeless to build a new business in today’s economic climate?  Do you listen to the friends or family members who tell you to stick with that “good, secure job” and stop this foolishness of building an online business?

What will keep you going during the tough times?  What will motivate you when it’s difficult to learn about Web 2.0 technology?

Your vision! Yes, your vision for building your business will give you the motivation to keep going.  Now, you do have a vision for your business, don’t you?  If you don’t have one, then take the time to figure out why you are doing this business.

You may say, “I don’t want to waste time with figuring out my vision.  I just want to make money.”  Taking time to build your vision is not a waste of time.  If Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki spend time thinking about the vision for their businesses, do you think that they may have something?

What is a vision?  Webster’s defines vision as a vivid mental image. So what is your vision for your business?  Find a quiet space and ask yourself some questions.

  • What would a successful online business look like for you?
  • What would your income be?
  • What would you do with the money?
  • Where would you be living?  In the country, in the city?
  • Who would you help with the money you make? 

Write out your vision with descriptive details. The richer, more vibrant and in-motion your details are the better.  Use the present tense. Imagine yourself there.  You are there.  You have already created a successful online business.

Then put copies of your vision around you.  Read your vision out loud first thing in the morning and the last thing at night.  Create a vision board in your home with images that reflect what your life will be like when you have achieved your vision.

As you hold your vision in your consciousness, you will easily handle the challenges that surface.  Your vision of success will empower you to thrive in the midst of the difficulties.

May you be blessed as you create the online business of your dreams.
