There are many destructive behaviors that are involved with human nature, but can it be entailed with business? The answer is yes. Here are some examples:
1. Spending more than what you can afford.
2. Not being patient.
3. Not preparing any kind of business plan.
4. Not setting goals.
5. Not having an open mind.
6. Believing that you will earn money overnight or in 30 seconds after launching an online business.
7. Getting into debt for an affiliate program. If it’s a brick and mortar business, then it is OK to get a business loan.
8. Not spending enough time working on you online business after launching.
When I started promoting affiliate work from programs from ClickBank and other sources, I fell into that trap of believing that I can make money overnight. Little did I realize that I had to treat my online venture like a real business. Because of my itchy, trigger finger attitude, I had gotten myself into debt, because I wanted to see the results right then and there. From this lesson, I had changed my ways and focused more of going the long way round instead of rushing into things.
Here are a few tips that will prevent you from having that trigger finger feeling.
A. Treat your affiliate program like a real business. Success will come in the long run.
B. Be patient. If a vendor comes along and promises you that you will earn a lot of money in minutes, don’t believe them. If you decide to promote that particular program, treat it like a real business.
C. Do not get into debt for an affiliate program.
D. Set aside time work on your program.
E. If you are married, talk to your spouse about what you are doing. Never do anything behind their backs.
F. Have an open mind. Learn new skills and take advice from other experienced entrepreneurs. You can do this by reading their books or go on the internet and type in the keyword entrepreneur and you will see list of websites that you can visit.
G. Create a business plan for your affiliate work and set goals of what you want to accomplish.
Following these tips will prevent you from developing that itchy, trigger action that will cause the downfall of your online business and you will not experience the pain and suffering that have gone through when I first started out.
