What I’ve Learned During the X Years I’ve Been an Entrepreneur

Twelve years ago I took a big step into starting my own online business after working for other people as an affiliate marketer and not making any money of my own. I had big ideas, some often too large, but still the same and I wanted to be my own boss. I jumped in knowing the basics of blogging and social media marketing which at the time is nothing compared to what is out there today and I decided to take the first step by purchasing my own domain. I chose the domain name ( money and technology ) and started my website the URL address is www.moneyandtechnology.com. I saw what others was doing on the internet like creating websites and blogs and making lots of money.



And I read their websites and blogs and I liked what I was reading and that’s what inspired me to want to create my own websites and blogs. So later on I started to learn about creating websites and blogs. The first blog that I ever created was entitled (  tracy’s blog ) at www.tlkool35.blogspot.com. It was on Blogger platform. But since then I have creating lots of other websites and blogs. I have a website entitled Money and Technology at
http://www.moneyandtechnology.com as listed above and it’s the website that I have been making most of the money that I have made from blogging. I have been making money with the google adsense advertisements, from affiliate marketing advertisements and from sponsored posts from advertising companies.

X Traits All Successful Entrepreneurs Should Have

1. Type-A personality

I know that people with a Type A personality are generally more ambitious, more driven, and have more follow-through. They’re not dreamers; they’re doers. Of course, this also comes with a slew of other problems like high stress levels (and everything that comes with them), but it’s the drive and follow-through that you should focus on. Dreams can be great, but what’s the use if you lack motivation to do anything about it?

2. Morning people

You should know that study after study has shown that morning people are more successful in their careers (and in many other aspects of their lives) than night owls. And also, there are certainly successful night owls, and if it’s truly impossible for you to get up at 5 a.m., then it’s not required for your success. The reason morning people get more done is that they’re not as prone to procrastination, which is something you can work on no matter what your internal clock settings.

Thinking About Starting an Online Business? Read This First!

We are all aware of the high percentage of new businesses that fail. When this occurs, money is lost, time and effort are wasted, and dreams go unfulfilled. If you are considering starting a business of any type and want some insight into the risks (and rewards) of doing so, I suggest you read Michael Gerber’s “The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It.” This is one of those rare business books that not only describes problems, but also offers good advice for overcoming those associated with a small business start-up.

 

I know that one of Mr. Gerber’s fundamental beliefs, and the basis for the book’s title, is that it is a myth (the “Entrepreneur Myth”) that small businesses are started by entrepreneurs risking capital to make a profit. Grace Lever has a great video show on her YouTube channel to help empower entrepreneurs. Go and signup and check it out.  Entrepreneurs typically do not start businesses, he says; people with certain technical skills to start businesses when they are gripped by an “entrepreneurial seizure” and suddenly feel a need to do things for themselves.

 

But this concept really hit home with me, because I know of instances where a dissatisfied employee one day realizes he or she can do things better and opens a competing machine shop, assembly house, restaurant, retail store or some type of “one-stop-shopping” business nearby. While this new business sometimes becomes successful, it fails just as often because the new owner knows no more about running a business than his or her former employer. The problem, as stated so well by Mr. Gerber is “the technical work of a business and a business that does that technical work are two totally different things.” So to put it simply, a person with technical skills will not necessarily be a good owner of a business that sells those technical skills. In fact, it can be argued that the more technical skill a person has, the more that person will focus on the technical things going on to the detriment of other aspects of the business.
