Succeeding Online and Succeeding in Life

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “It takes a village” before – in most cases, people use it in reference to raising a child.  The idea is that parents need support when it comes caring for little ones.

And while there are folks who do make it through the process almost completely on their own, it does most certainly help to have a solid support structure behind you when taking on such a monumental task.

Today we are going to apply that term to starting a new business venture – because the very first steps in entrepreneurship are not all that dissimilar to the challenges many face as a new parent.

There are long days, filled with hard work and stress, there are sleepless nights and constant nurturing.  Fear of the unknown and and unparalleled desire for success.  And just like embarking on the journey of beginning a family – having a solid and experienced support structure in place when starting a business can help ease some of the stress and smooth out what might otherwise be a bumpy transition.

You can get the help you need to speed up you success in business in a number of ways.  You can look for a mentor who has walked a very similar path with success in the past; you can hire a professional business coach and work with them one on one to strategize; you can join a local networking group and participate in regular meetings; or you could join a reputable online community.

When I first started my journey into online entrepreneurship there weren’t as many possibilities out there for help.  There weren’t a multitude of business coaches who specialized in online earning and the structured communities were few and far between.

As a brand new entrepreneur, with little in the way of start-up capitol and very limited knowledge, I tried the “do it alone” approach.  And while I’m still alive and kicking and earning money online today, I believe that my journey would have been much easier and much more lucrative if I’d had the help of some knowledgeable support people along the way.

I highly recommend that new online entrepreneurs and online earning hopefuls join the Wealthy Affiliate community.  There are different levels of membership (one is completely free) and you get access to hundreds and hundreds of experienced professionals, countless online training modules and a very active hub for asking questions and seeing other’s successes.

You can sign up for a free Wealthy Affiliate account here and you can read my in depth review of WA here.  Don’t waste any more time – join a community that can help you make positive steps immediately with the support and training you need to succeed.

    I am new to the online business world and would be lost without Wealthy Affiliate. When I first began my research on it all, I would find was screen shots of all this money people were making and none of them ever gave out any actual help or advice. Luckily, I stumbled across a review like yours and quickly learned about Wealthy Affiliate. When I heard they had a couple free courses I figured I would try it out and afterwards I was hooked. I would encourage all your readers here to read your review and give them a try. You will not regret it! WA is “Your Village”. Thank you for this post.

    Hi Jeff – You are right on here with so many points. People do not realize how hard entrepreneurship can be. Just as people without kids might not know what they are in for in those early years.

    The idea of having a support network is huge. It can be a very isolated world starting a new business.

    I was young when I started my business and did not know the importance of networking and community. Things are so different today and the resources new business owners have are abundant.

      Appreciate the comment Scott. I’m glad I went through all that I did to learn, but it sure would have saved a lot of headaches to have had access to all the info I have access to now way back when I started.

    Couldn’t agree with you more Jeff. It is so difficult to go solo and succeed online without a strong support network around you. Like you, I tried and it sucks. It’s not only the knowledge that you can gain from others but the fact that someone in the training community has probably worked their way through the exact roadblock you are up against. The emotional support that they can give you when things aren’t working out is invaluable and one of the main contributors to your eventual success.

    Great article – well done.

      Great insight – it is invaluable to have access to the folks who have literally been in your shoes before!

    You have definitely given new meaning to “it takes a village” and it’s so accurate! I am new to affiliate marketing and if I tried to do it on my own, I would be so lost. I highly recommend WA because it is the village those who are new need.

      Absolutely Lindsey – hope your experience with WA is as positive as mine has been.

      Thanks for stopping by and for your comment!
