It was October 2011 when I first started the journey of online business building. I had no idea what I wanted to do, just that I wanted to take advantage of an internet business opportunity. I had multiple passions inside of me and online biz building sat at numero uno. The key, however, was that I wanted to start my online business from home. I wanted the flexibility of working from home, or anywhere, because travel and time freedom are important to me.
I thought if I could learn this thing, then my next biggest passion would naturally come into play. My passion for teaching, leading, coaching, and mentoring others. You see, I am a big cheerleader at heart.
But the biggest challenge was where to start. Even in 2011 there was so much information out there and, what I thought would or should have been a relatively simple process, turned out to be a complicated interweb. There were so many online business ideas floating around out there that I found myself floundering as I bounced back and forth. I questioned myself. I mean, who the heck am I to think that I can do this thing? Did I wait too long? Am I too young? Am I too old? Am I not certified? Who is going to care about what I have to say and share? Not only that, my business idea is already being offered by others so why bother.
I sat stuck in the interwebs for quite some time, while constantly keeping my eye peeled for the next shiny object that promised a better future, a different experience, the $10k/month business within 60 days or less. None of which came true, of course.
Each time I jumped with both feet in, I found myself overwhelmed with the depth and breadth of information that promised to help me grow my online business. What was promoted as step-by-step course or program was more like leap-by-leap. I felt defeated. And then I would give up.
What I truly needed was a strong, solid foundation to have a successful online business. In other words, I needed to baby step my way into this thing. I was working a demanding full-time job that I didn’t want to be doing forever. I was a single mom. I was tired. I simply wanted something, a plan, a course, a program, that would allow me to make progress, little by little so that I could one day, in the not-so-distant-future, leave my job and build my dream.
Since I couldn’t find anything like this, I created my own little plan. And this one worked. It opened up the opportunity to create more, once I had my firm, rock-solid, foundation laid. I knew I couldn’t be the only one experiencing this overwhelm and confusion.
[The other big challenge *and change* I made was putting my blinders on and not reaching for those bright, shiny, enticing objects--no matter what. I had to choose to not get distracted and to no get sucked in.]
