Free books that aren't and gaming the best seller lists are deadend paths for entrepreneurs intent on making a living as authors.
It requires courage to choose the entrepreneurial path, and more courage is needed to see how far it leads.
Starting a Business
The potential to make a comfortable living online, without a physical storefront or product, is increasingly possible for those willing to carve out a niche.
Being honest with yourself about the type of entrepreneur you are and want to be can be instrumental in determining how to grow your business.
Starting and growing a business teaches perseverance, resilience and stamina, to name a few.
Relying solely on social media is a slow and increasingly expensive way to grow your business. Accelerate the process by getting your message in front of larger audiences.
Writing is a practice with powerful benefits, personally and professionally, if you don't confuse it with cranking out content.
Asking for help
Asking a successful person you don't know for advice will often leave you without advice or the chance of building a relationship.
Overcoming what is holding you back requires first admitting that something is holding you back.
It's always a mystery why particular content catches fire but you can make it much likelier.
Building Your Online Presence
The real competition online is for notice, credibility and respect. Achieve that and sales will follow.
Learning From Mistakes
Nobody gets everything right the first time around but some lessons should only need to be given once.
Success is more likely if you get the basics right.
Entrepreneurship begins with a dream but succeeding at it requires being wide awake to reality.
