Sometimes it’s kind of hard to sift out the truth in a pile of rumors and myths.
I’ve been around the block a time or two in the online business world. So today I wanted to let you in on the TRUTH and bust some bull crap myths that I’ve been hearing.
You may have a very ambitious personality and have at least a million entrepreneurial ideas that would be highly profitable. But something is holding you back. Maybe it’s the fear of failure or maybe it’s the chance that half of the things you hear about entrepreneurship are true.
Let me ask you this…
Are you happy in your lifestyle right now? Are you happy with the way things are going financially?
If not, then I would be more afraid of staying put right where you are. Every day that you put off pursuing your passion is another day that you could have been one step closer to waking up ecstatic to get to work, waking up to time freedom, and waking up to being financially free.
Let's put a dent in that fear and replace it with a go-getter attitude.
Myth 1: “Running a successful online business requires MORE time than working in the corporate world. I’m trying to free up my time so that’s obviously not for me.”
In the beginning of growing your business, I’ll be honest, you have to grind it out and it takes a little more effort. But as soon as you’ve created your products, put your systems in place, and automated social media, you start to experience more time with your loved ones and the freedom to do what you want to do whenever you want to do it!
There is a learning curve as a new business owner just like anything else that you try to accomplish. But it’s only that - a learning curve. You get through it and time really starts to become a freedom that you get to enjoy!
Myth 2: “Passive income is impossible and just words that online business owners throw around.”
Passive income is income that you make because you created a product once and it gets sold over and over again through automated systems in your business. It isn’t impossible.
Digital info products are some of the most passive, popular products in the online business realm right now. Passive income is only impossible for those who won’t put forth the effort to create it for themselves.
Myth 3: “You have to invest so much money in an online business that you actually don’t even end up making a profit.”
I’ll admit that I’ve made one or two bad investments… but I’ve also made one or two EXCELLENT investments that have brought me tenfolds the amount of money that I put in.
You may have heard this myth from people who have spent thousands on ads. I haven’t spent a dime on ads and plenty of people are exposed to my product! You can be a wise investor. I know how to make good investments in my business that always make me more money than I put out so they’re well worth it. You can too!
Myth 4: “The tech stuff is way too hard and I’m just not cut out for that.”
I’m not either! I’m no tech guru and not having a clue what’s on the other side of different software is just intimidating. But as soon as you actually open it up… it’s literally no big deal. I’m not even joking.
It’s just the ‘not knowing’ that makes it super scary. I use a lot of software and systems that are user friendly and have tiny learning curves. I use Squarespace which is literally made for you and me. SO easy to use! If I can do it….. And I’m not just saying this…. YOU CAN TOO!
Myth 5: “You have to know people and have an audience already to make this “online biz” stuff work.”
Excuses, excuses! I knew ZERO peeps in this industry and I had zero people on my email list when I got started. I grew my list from 0-850 in 60 days. You just have to START. You have to start your business, find your type of people, and then put yourself out there on social media. Engaging with other people in your industry isn’t hard and your following will grow rapidly with a plan and consistency.
Myth 6: “I don’t have an expertise or anything to share with the world. I wouldn’t make any money because I’m not an expert.”
You have a skill and a strength that a group of people out there need. They need your guidence! You don’t even have to be seen as an expert in the beginning.
You see, you have to start your business and start creating your digital products in order to start being seen as an expert. You can’t become an expert and then start creating your products. It just doesn’t work that way! You create and provide resources first!
Myth 7: “You have to pay your dues and rough it for awhile before you hit a breakthrough. I’d be broke for awhile and I have a family that I need to support!”
That’s not true. You can build your landing page, create your digital product, and start promoting it to bring in consistent full-time income in 90 days or less.
You just have to commit and put your mind to the creation process - which isn’t even hard! If you’re ready to create your first digital product and sell the crap out of it then just do it. No time wasted.
Myth 8: “I get overwhelmed really easily and actually just thinking about creating something stresses me out.”
I’ve created multiple digital products, promoted them, and have consistently brought in full-time passive income. It wasn’t easy at first. It got messy every now and then. If you don’t know how to create a product and form a solid promotion plan then you may get overwhelmed and stressed. You may make a few wrong turns.
That’s why I created my signature course Your Passionate Online Biz. So that you don’t have to spend a year in trial and error and loads of frustration like I did in my first full year in online business.
