If you’re here you’re probably interested in creating an online income.
For most of you, I’m sure you’ve made multiple attempts and that haven’t gotten you the results you desired.
I’m going to let you in on a secret that you probably know, but have been overlooking this entire time. You won’t believe how simple it is.
What is this first step? You must simply have a plan.
For those of you that are still reading, allow me to elaborate. A plan is not the same as an idea. An idea pops into your head in a fraction of a second and be forgotten just as quickly.
So let’s talk about what a plan is and why you need one.
The Three Parts To Any Plan
I like to think there are three parts to any ideal plan. While you can elaborate on these, as long as you answer these three questions you have a plan.
- What Do You Have?
- What Are You Trying To Get?
- How Will You Get It?
Like I said, very simple, but these can easily be elaborated on.
I’ve decided to create an imaginary scenario here, let’s see how it plays out.
What Do You Have? For the sake of the situation let’s say you have $100 startup capital.
What Do You Want? We want to be able to create the same internet wealth that we read about all the time.
How Will You Get It? Let’s say we want to earn a living blogging.
This is the basic run down of a plan.
Now Let’s Elaborate!
We have enough money to buy web hosting and a domain name for our first year at least. $100 is excellent startup money for a blog.
We want to make a lot of money, but we realize we have to start somewhere. We are shooting to make $100/month to start.
To get it we have to decide where to buy hosting/domain, the topic of the blog, how much time to put in it, when to start, etc. The how’s go on and on.
Do you see how quickly this escalated into a full blown thinking session? Remember, every successful business venture, no matter how small, should start with a plan.
