One is a powerful word.  Especially for today’s lesson.

One of the main reasons people fail to make money using the internet is due to a lack of focus when getting started (and sometimes when they continue after getting momentum).

When getting started…

You need one reason.

(for me it was helping to grow businesses and seeing the reaction on business owner’s faces once they achieved true freedom)

You need one skill.

(in the beginning, for me it was copywriting and a little bit of marketing…now it’s much more of a role as an online business-results coach and copywriting)

You need one niche to explore.

(for me, business owners that wanted to use the Internet to generate 1 – 100% of their revenue)

You need one method of monetization.

(sell my skills and knowledge to that niche)

So you can earn one dollar.

(did that in 2001)

Once you do that, you repeat and duplicate until you are making considerable income from one business.  But you have to earn that first dollar first…before even thinking about the “thousands” or “millions” you’ll make.

Find

One and

Capitalize on it

Until you’re

Successful

That’s the one key that opens the front door to success, and if you’ve already started gaining momentum…the one key you must return to when you feel like things aren’t going as planned with your online business.

It really is that simple folks.  But not easy…as it’s extremely likely that you’ll be faced with 1000’s of distractions and seemingly better opportunities along the way.

Forget them.

If the other opportunities were so much better than what you are / want to working on now…you wouldn’t have them being marketed to you…you would have to go and find them.  People don’t share the “real” secrets for $47 in an ebook…period.

So now, the choice is yours…

Are you going to F.O.C.U.S. and get real about your business…or get a job slaving away for someone else and line their pockets?

Until next time…
