Here's the best online business advice you'll ever hear.
We're living in a world now where everything you ever wanted to know can be accessed by a click of a computer mouse. It's almost TOO easy to start an online business nowadays. Whether it's starting a blog, YouTube channel, coaching/mentor program, or online retail store, anyone can make it happen. So, what's the best online business advice I've ever gotten when I decided to start ShaunPolly LLC? JUST DO IT! Yeah, just like Nike.
When I was a teenager, anytime I wanted to know about something new, I looked it up online. The knowledge online is limitless. I share that to say if you're looking to start an online business, you have to first have the initiative to start. It's so easy to say, "I want to start a YouTube channel!", but if you're waiting for someone else to motivate you, then do you REALLY want it or does the idea sound nice? You want to start a blog, but you're waiting for someone else's creative genius to be passed on to you. How's that work?
Instead of wanting someone to hold your hand to get you started, just take the initiative to do it yourself!
When someone shares with me their interest to start an online venture, I just say, "Okay... What are you waiting for?" I don't try to come off rude, but the only way you can get started is to, well, GET STARTED! Don't get me wrong, though, I have no problem helping people. What I don't like is helping someone who isn't willing to help themselves. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. What you decide to do with that time determines how successful you will be in anything that you want to accomplish.
So, the next time you're thinking about how bad you want to start that YouTube channel/blog/any other online business, think about what's really holding you back. Sometimes we want the timing to be too perfect when in reality, time is just passing by. Remember, you can't get that time back. Start now.
