1 Big Mistake I Made When I Was First Getting Started In Online Business

Like most beginners, I made a lot of mistakes when I first started checking out online business options.

But this was the biggest one, by far:

Believing the Hype of High-Ticket Course Promoters

Here’s what happened:

When I was starting out, I was lured in by the promise of webinars. Amazon e-commerce, writing children’s books, affiliate marketing, you name it.

Over the course of a webinar, a lot of big $ numbers were quoted, and fast success timelines shown.

What, of course, wasn’t shown was the normal bell curve of probability. The fact that:

  • only a few people achieve remarkable success quickly
  • without ongoing support and feedback, most people struggle to implement new skills
  • a good percentage of students won’t even complete the course.

I fell for the marketing hype. More than once.

But, it’s also worth acknowledging that making this mistake taught me a ton.

To recognize over-promotion when I see it. To ask lots of questions. To start with free content, and get a reality check on my interest and skill set. Buyer beware.

So I encourage everyone to see their mistakes (and “failures”) as necessary steps along the path.

There’s always a lesson to learn.
