We are going to have a look at a scenario here about a problem many people face when starting an online business to see if we can drive home a point.
To start a franchise today can cost several thousand, or even several million dollars. The people who start their own franchise are extremely committed to the success of it due to the amount of money they have invested.
They stand to lose a tremendous amount of money if their business is not successful. This certainly affects their attitude towards the business and the way they get up and go to work every day.
Now contrast this to starting an online business. Many online businesses can be started for free.
Others may cost a few dollars, a few hundred dollars, or maybe even $1000 or more. For the most part this is not a financial strain on the people who choose to do it.
Ultimately what happens is the way they work their online business is reflective of how much they have invested into it. It is very easy for the people who start an online business for free to slacken off and not work on a consistent basis. So what it boils down to is that they will not make it a success because they are not committed to doing the work required.
Even people who invest $1000 to get started may easily give up if they find it harder to be successful than they had anticipated. This is because it is not painful to lose the amount of money they have invested.
To contrast that, there are numerous examples of people making a full time living online today. These people were able to start their business online without spending much money at all. These are people who are committed to making their online business work.
The time that it takes to be successful is what they are willing to invest. If you do not have a lot of money, and you have more time then that is the investment you must make to be successful with your business, remember time is money.
People who are able to grasp this concept are able to go on and become successful because they will do whatever it takes. Starting an online business and running it requires work and they quickly become aware of this but the rewards are worth it to them.
So, to sum up, it ultimately comes down to knowing why you started your online business and how hard you're willing to work to achieve success, whether you invest a lot of time of a lot of money.
