Decoding the Traits of A Successful Online Business Entrepreneur

“Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison

Are some people just born to become successful entrepreneurs? Is success something that some lucky people achieve easily? You may sometimes wonder why some people seem to have all the luck in the world and become instantly successful in their internet business. Success may seem like its been given to them on a golden platter but in reality all online business success stories started with a formula. Let me share with you some common characteristics of successful online business owners.

Decide to be successful!

Home Business Entrepreneur – 9 Proven Criteria to Get Started

After having interviewed literally hundreds of potential entrepreneurs I have found that there are three categories:

Wannabees

People who choose something more or less randomly with a very low financial investment not really committing themselves.

They typically buy a book they can resell, or they will start typing ads or surveys from home. Programs typically costing less than $50 to get them going. If it doesn’t work, they will try something else. It’s hard to believe they will become successful but at the other end, they didn’t risk anything.

Scared

The sheer amount of possibilities and the enormous amounts of money apparently available in this market makes them scared. They give up before they even try because they believe everything is a scam anyway. They simply don’t want to make any changes to their current situation or life.

Committed Entrepreneurs

People who understand that there are indeed ultra smart ways of making a very good living online provided you do your homework and stay committed. Provided they are able to protect themselves from negative circles of influence, they are ready to investigate a serious opportunity as it presents itself. Existing home based entrepreneurs are happy to help these people as it will allow them to coach serious, next generation leaders building the foundation for a strong and dedicated community of entrepreneurs.

The information in this article is for the latter group of entrepreneurs.

New to Home Business?

If you plan to start a home based business for the first time, criteria 1-6 are most applicable to you. Your main concern is the level of support and training. Becoming your own boss for the next period in your life means that you have to start to think a little different about business. Be prepared to take personal responsibility for your actions and learn multiple tasks. Even some personal development might be required to become more effective and self-reliant.

Experienced in Home Business?

If you have been working out of your home once before but are in the process of changing, focus on criteria 7-9. You want to make sure that your efforts will pay off this time… You have a big advantage in terms of a much shorter learning curve and your developed sense for business working from home.

1-Company

Always select a company that really exists, with real people and that has been in business for at least 5 years:

– They have proven themselves in time and are likely to stay alive successfully.

– Most likely, they have been scrutinized and investigated by different bureaus and administrations and survived different levels of allegations. This is a natural filtering process that happens to any company with a certain size and functions like a filter. This filter always works and weeds out the illegitimate schemes and unsuccessful businesses. So use it to your advantage!

2-Products

These should be real and marketable. Pyramid schemes where only money is passed around are 100% illegal and cannot exist for a long time. Just be aware of them and avoid them. More over, make sure you are excited about the products yourself. Believe me it helps when talking to others and when overcoming obstacles!

3-Training

Step-by-step program works best with personal contact to your coach. This allows you to learn from the professionals and make corrections as you go. Make sure the business plan has been proven to work and is generating results for those following the steps. Ideally, the training system should help you to become a problem solver who can handle small obstacles with confidence.

4-Slightly Challenging

Important: if you select an extremely simple business like typing ads or filling questionnaires working from home, you cannot expect any great rewards. Anyone in the world can do this and most of it can be automated anyway at lowest cost. How motivated will you be after 3 weeks typing the same ads over and over again?

5-Longevity

You want to do something for a longer time, become a specialist and this way you make sure the opportunity remains challenging and motivating enough for you to stay involved and focused. There is nothing worse than having to restart your learning curve over and over again and not make any progress…

6-Team

You learn faster and stay motivated if you can interact with an enthusiastic team. Make sure the team works professionally and is ready to help. There is nothing worse than to work at home without any one to interact with for support.

7-Investment

Common question of many people: ‘how much should I invest’. Difficult to answer. Some of us invest in powerful computers and large desks while others use the kitchen table and a simple laptop. What is important here is the level of flexibility to be able to make your own business decisions. Being your own boss means that you make your own decisions.

8-MLM?

You decide! Multi-level marketing business has created successful companies and I do know people who have become extremely successful in this business. The fact is that for this type of business you need to be a very good sales guy. If, like myself, you are not, then keep your eyes open. Because there are opportunities out there that don’t require you to hard-sell anything!

9-Compensation

Last but not least, how do you get paid? In many cases there is a balance between profits on products sold and a rewards for building teams in the organization (creating some kind of leverage). Compensation plans can be very sophisticated. Bottom line: spend enough time to check it out and ensure that the compensation plan has been proven to work already over a period of at least 5 years. Also remember, these is no value in getting compensated solely for enrolling other people in a program. These plans cannot be sustained for a long time and they might be illegal as well in certain states.

Once you have chosen your business, congratulations! The groundwork is done. Treat your new venture as an aeroplane on the runway. Load it with fuel and go full throttle. Don’t hold back so you don’t crash at the end of the runway.

Is it Really Possible to Go From Offline to Online Business Entrepreneur in a Short Time Span?

The first 30 years or so of my life were spent pretty much the same way as the masses; starting in state school education, following on to College to study, in my case Construction Studies, then joining the usual main stream 9-5 JOB as a trainee for ‘peanuts’ in terms of money just for having the privilege of actually having a JOB!  I remember my first year’s salary back in the late 1980’s was a whopping £4.5k! Yes that’s 4 point 5, not £45k!

At this point you’re thinking, well that was back in the 80’s, right that probably wasn’t so bad was it?  Well 12 years later when I eventually ‘sacked’ my employer, my salary had increased to a staggering £20k a year after reaching Site Manager level, and the employment funnel was getting narrower towards the top, meaning there was little or no chance of going much further.  £20k a year, how pathetic was that!

So I was in my late 20’s, I had been married for several years and both my wife and I were working flat out to try and keep the bills covered on our first home we had bought into. Interest rates here in the UK reached somewhere around 15%, and our mortgage payments were crippling to say the least.  My salary alone wasn’t enough to cover the mortgage.  I was working overtime and even then it was a struggle.  There was no way we were going to be able to start a family! Now we are only talking about 12 years ago, and I recall some of my school friends that had gone their own separate ways were earning anything up to £50k a year. So I knew then something was ‘drastically’ wrong!

The strange thing then, was that everyone else around me at my old employer seemed oblivious to it all and seemed to be happy and content that this was the norm! For some time I had felt as though I was outside of this huge box looking in at everyone else.  I knew there had to be a different way, but I didn’t know how.  Although I had come through the management route in construction, I was quite able when it came to the practical side of construction, and so began to offer my services to some friends.  This then spread to doing small projects to some Architect friends I knew, to the point where I couldn’t cope working my full time job and my new found side line which I was running in the evenings and at the weekends.  I was literally working 7 days a week and burning the candle at both ends!

It was the spring of ’97 and interest rates were beginning to fall.  Just when we saw we could break even, we sold our house and moved in to a bedroom at our parents flat in West London!  We had the greatest news; we were going to have our first baby Girl!!  Now I don’t know if it was this that had the effect, but for whatever reason I decided in my wisdom that now was the best time to sack my 9-5 BOSS!  So, we had no home, we were expecting our first child and then I sacked my BOSS! Shortly after we found a new home and with the money we had saved at our parents along with the additional income I was getting from my new business, put this towards another mortgage. And in that first year I earned double of my final salary at my old employer!

So that was it then, I found my New Success and the right career path move right? Well I developed and grew my own business from initial typical refurbishment contracts of circa £20-30k to larger contracts of circa £2.4million. During this time, I also purchased a Freehold Property which we refurbished ourselves ‘in house’ from an old disused garage to forming a top end Bathroom Showroom, displaying such brands like ‘Villeroy & Boch’ and offered an in-house Design and Installation service to our local Customers.

The down side to this new found success? Well when I was employed, I still had all my holidays.  When we went away we had great times. During our time owning our own business, no such luck!  I quickly found that I was being employed again, this time by a hungry machine that demanded being fed even when I wanted to slow down for a bit; so I didn’t, I couldn’t.

To top it all, as with many other Companies, trading in 2008-2009 saw a significant change and it was evident that we needed to look for an alternative, fast!  Where did I look then? Well I had been a subscriber to a monthly Business Newsletter and the one area that shouted out among any other industry, was how well and successful people were doing ONLINE.  This worried me at first; I had been one of those that, with the exception of purchases etc, had kept completely clear of the Internet and its offerings. My initial thoughts were…

“How can I do anything online, I know nothing about computers, I didn’t take ‘IT’ at school or college, I know nothing, I’m an Offline Entrepreneur…”

Well silly me (that’s putting it mildly!!).  It was great that I had taken the initiative to do something about our lives back when we started our business, but if I had opened my eyes a bit wider and looked further a field, I could have saved years of hard and lost times!

Fast Forward to today, and I am now meeting a complete new stream of people and friends whilst chartering new waters with more ‘Enthusiasm and Optimism’ than ever before!!  The main difference now? Well I get to work from home at the hours to suit me.  I still work hard and am committed to my new found career and Business (everything worth having in life takes work, there’s just different ways of getting there and different levels of enjoying your time whilst achieving it)

I get to take my girls to school on most days, after having breakfast together!  I get to take our handsome German Shepherd dog out a couple of times a day on long and ‘fun’ walks (not rushed at the crack of dawn or in the pitch black of night after work) At the end of the day I get to ‘pick’ my girls up from school!  We have dinner together! This may all seem a bit boring to you, but I have got over 12 years of catching up to do, and the simplest things in life have a complete new value to me again, and I am enjoying every minute of it!!

So ‘Offline’Construction Business Owner and Entrepreneur to ‘Online’ Marketing in less than a year!! Who would have thought you could change your life long career to something completely new? And who would have thought that you can cover the same distance as an Offline business over 12 years in JUST SEVERAL MONTHS Online?

Wow…The Power of the Internet and more importantly, the POWER OF SELF BELIEF!! (I will leave that last one for another time!) For me for now, I feel blessed to be given another opportunity to build a new successful life for me AND my family’s future.  There’s an old saying “Third time lucky…” Well this is my third time around in my career and I don’t plan on going anywhere else now, I have found my right career path at long last!
