My Biggest Problems With Online Business



Actually, I've a few.

  1. Lack of patience: I want my online businesses to make money quickly, not unrealistic amounts like $50K or more in 6 months, but hundreds to $1000 a month.

  2. A lot of distractions: My mind is wired such that I keep thinking "I can do this, or I can do that" and I keep getting side tracked by ideas and courses, leading me to be too thinly spread/diluted

  3. Lack of consistency: because of (1) and (2) above, I tend to be all over the place, which is why I think that my results online are just hitting an average of $30 per month in profits.

So what I'm doing now is to:

  • instead of handling 30+ websites and 3 service providers, I've made the call to cull down my websites to less than 20 across Solo Build It and self-hosted WordPress, and even that, I'm just focused on less than 4 websites (this is on top of my responsibilities as CEO/Director of my physical therapy business and as a husband/father/son/son-in-law/friend

  • instead of jumping/starting another business, I will sit and wait for at least 2 weeks before I even entertain it further

If you're similar to me, please share with me what you'd done to overcome this problem, what worked for you, and what didn't.

I'd love to hear from you, and future visitors too.
