Let’s face it. One of the major reasons why a lot of people want to try their luck with online business is due to the promise of windfall profits in a short period of time. There are more people who are involved with online business who don’t really know and understand where they are getting themselves into than those people who are in this kind of business because they have a clear idea of what it is all about. In truth and in fact, internet marketing is not for everyone. Sadly, there are many people who launch their online business based on wrong perception and for the wrong reasons.
In order to develop a framework of understanding of Internet marketing and online business, we have to look at the potential players under two categories — the employees and the entrepreneurs. People often tend to retain their employee mindset when they venture into business. They can’t seem to outgrow their employee mentality, and this leads to their misplaced dependence on the company and the desire for sense of security and financial stability. This is where everything goes haywire for a lot of people.
Internet marketing is anchored on the goal of most entrepreneurs to be able to formulate change. It is devised for entrepreneurs based on the best practices of successful entrepreneurs, and people who follow the so-called “employee-mindset” are definitely out of the loop when it comes to Internet marketing. If we are going to profile the personality of the successful Internet marketers, we can easily see that these are go-getters who have the innate talent to achieve their goals through others. Entrepreneurs and employees are different in several respects, and there is a long list of reasons as to why employees may not fit in with this kind of business.
The industry is a community of individuals who are set to achieving success and are prepared to do whatever it takes to accomplish their goals. Sadly, not everyone is destined for such purpose-driven undertakings.
Employees are not expected to succeed in any online business if they are not able to outgrow their “employee mentality”. Internet marketing needs people who are more than willing to take control of their life. If you are prepared to be your own boss, you are one of the few who are really meant for Internet marketing.
