I was thinking back on my own experiences in online marketing and the huge trial and error that went on. What took our team to success was persistence. A nice friend to persistence is patience. While I didn’t seem to have much of it at times one will find that when starting from the ground up, patience will win the day in a long term online business model. I’m not saying don’t work hard. On the contrary, one should be busting their butt, especially in the beginning, if they are going to make an online business work. I just wouldn’t want to see someone discouraged because it takes time to build and one should really plan on that being necessary. If patience becomes impossible then maybe we should evaluate if this is the right thing for us. One should enjoy the journey that takes them to their final destination.
