You Need Support
Building a business is a bit like giving birth to a child! At least that’s how it feels to me most of the time =) … From the moment you have the idea of a business to the moment this business is thriving, a few months can pass…
As your business takes shape you will encounter ups and downs, experience difficult and frustrating moments and (thankfully!) enjoy great times of joy and excitement! Like an obstacle course, you will be happy and proud to cross the finish line! =)
What I have learned during my 6 years experience in business creation is that you can never know it all and that you always want to seek help. One of my biggest mistakes in the past was being so focused on what I was doing that I did not see the mistakes I was making. Repeatedly.
Starting a business does require innate qualities that nothing can replace … but educating yourself, wanting to learn and seeking constant feedback on what you do each step of the way is undoubtedly the best way to move forward and keep you on track !
Be Willing To Learn
Getting help and support is crucial, but being willing to educate yourself can make the difference as well. Things are constantly changing in the online world and you are going to want to be “up to date”. Learning new things will help you get better at what you do and will enable you to fix past mistakes.
The basics of a business creation are pretty simple :
1) Pick something you are interested in : that would be your niche (See article : Choosing your direction – it starts with a niche)
2) choose various ways to monetize the subject you’re interested in (See article : Understanding How To Make Money Online)
3) start earning money from it.
The work in between undoubtedly requires constancy and determination. If you continuously keep these two qualities present in your mind, your journey to success will be smoother! And quicker ! =)
Learn & Earn
In our society we are used to studying first and then finding a job to earn a living related to what we studied, to what we learned. This is the logical path, it seems. This “logical path” slowed me a lot in the process of creating my business. I would constantly think “I have not studied Business, I know nothing about marketing.” I have rarely seen people who managed to make money while creating their business from scratch … I did not even know it was possible! And yet, I now like to think that anything is possible! =) Even better, I KNOW it is possible.
Affiliate Marketing : the #1 way to earn money online
During my long hours of research on the subject (creating a business) I finally came across a website that literally changed my vision of business and I would say downright my whole life! This website is basically an online training platform that teaches you everything you need to know about affiliate marketing.
It provides you with tons of training, tutorials, tools, live support, websites and a community of entrepreneurs always ready to help out. You get to talk to people who have already built a successful online business and can give you tips or to people, just like you, who are getting started and need support.

Overnight Success Takes Time! =)
The most common mistake I see now (mistake that I have made of course!) is thinking building a business is easy and quick. Let’s face it, the internet is swamped with scams and get-rich-quick schemes and they target desperate people, honest people who are in need. There was a point where I got so tired of losing money and being disappointed that I wanted to give up and get back to a 9-5 job. But the truth I just couldn’t. A job at the office is just not for me and I know there’s many people like me out there who need to create, to express themselves and to take risks.
So instead of envying people who work at the office I decided that I’d been doing everything wrong and that I would start over! Deconstruct and reconstruct.
Do Yourself A Favor
Sometimes I wish someone from Wealthy Affiliate would have told me “Sarah you’re doing this all wrong, I’ll show you what to do to succeed” 9 years ago lol. But then I realize I’m just so grateful I found this community a few months ago and did not go on wasting time, energy and money trusting the wrong people. It doesn’t matter when you take action, what matters is that you DO take action and see a difference. If someone had told me 4 months ago : “Sarah you are going to run three websites, based on 2 of your biggest passions and a third one to help people achieve success and you’re going to make money from them”, I wouldn’t have believed them. If they’d told me what I would have to do to achieve this I wouldn’t even have started in the first place lol.
Pay It Forward
But here I am and there’s nothing else I’d want to do right now. I can write about things I love (essential oils, makeup tutorials) and help people do what I do and that’s everything I’ve always wanted.
The reason I created this website is because I’ve been scammed, I’ve been disappointed and desperate but tons of people have landed me a hand and given me such positive energy that it has enabled me to do what I do now. And for that I’ll always be grateful!
You too can do this, you can be and do anything you want really, as long as you decide it and take action ! If you think there’s much more for you out there and need a little boost, I would be ecstatic to see you in the community. It’s free to join and you can find me under the following nickname “BelieveItYes“.
