How Do You Start Online


I know how you feel, one opportunity after the other, telling you the get rich quick story! Showing big houses, fast cars and beautiful women.

Or the opportunities where you have to put down a large amount of your savings to be part of it and getting upsold to the next level where the elusive pot of gold is hidden.

I have been through all that and I can tell you, I am sick and tired of that BS. I will promise you that we will not do any of that here, cross my heart.

So the question remains "How do you start online?".

4 fundamental things that help you get started online.

  1. Help and support.
  2. A website.
  3. The ability to learn, practice and teach.
  4. A can-do attitude.

Help and support.


Let's face it, if you didn't need help you wouldn't be here!

I got help and now I am here to help you!

So what do you require help with?

That is a good question, right! The process of building an online business requires a good plan, like any other business!

The ability to learn new skills, Website Building, Content Writing, SEO, Keyword Research, Target Market research, Financial skills, just to name a few.

You might already have some skills but you will need to get more.

A website

build website

All successful online entrepreneurs have their own website. No website means no success. 

If you don't have a website, you will only have short-lived success.

Off course you can make money without a website, but if you want a sustainable online business that can run on autopilot you need a website.

Simple as that!

Now don't get worried yet, I am here to help.

And believe me or not, I will show you how and where you can set up a WordPress website in a matter of minutes and it will not cost you a cent!

The ability to learn, practice and teach.

learn practice teach

The ability to learn new skills, to practice the skills and to master the skills, will allow you to teach them to others.

These are the simple steps to become a master.

I don't know if you are old enough to remember, but there used to be a system that had master craftsmen taking on apprentices.

They would learn, practice and finally teach to become a master themselves.

Fast forward to now, we go to school and we are given knowledge and that is where it stops.

The same thing happens online, you go and buy knowledge, you don't get to practise and you don't teach.

So in my humble opinion, we have come full circle again.

A can-do attitude

can do attitude

As a business owner or entrepreneur, a can-do attitude is important have.

If you have been an employee, your attitude has been moulded to being told.

It requires you to unlearn the habits that you have, you are going to be your own boss!

So with power comes great responsibility.

So what you might want to ask yourself is "would I hire myself, if I was the boss?".

If your answer is no, you have to work on your attitude.

So where do you start!

Where to start

You have looked around on the web for a while, tried doing surveys, tried reviewing websites, etc, etc.

After all that you come to the conclusion that they are just jobs for less pay and take up a considerable amount of time.

These things are not scalable because your time is limited and so is your earning potential.

And then there are the people that promise you the world and tell you that you will be the next one to make it big online.

All they do is collect your money and show off their goodies that they bought with it.

The best way to start online is with Affiliate Marketing. It allows you to promote other peoples products and you get a commission on the sales.

Affiliate Marketing is a skill you can learn.

Like anything in life you need to learn a skill to be able to do things, affiliate marketing is no different.

All the information is on the web but that is one of the biggest problems there is too much of it.

It is also polluted with lots of old outdated information and not to mention all the scammers out there trying to take your money.

So I will tell you where I required my skills to get started online, so you can do the same.

And please it will require you to take action and start learning, apply what you learned, make many mistakes and learn some more.

Practice some more until you master it.
