Make Money Online…For Real?

Can you really make money online?  I know that is the question I asked when I first started this journey over 2 years ago.  I kept reading stories about how people were making millions literally overnight and how easy it was.  It all seemed awesome until reality set in.  I bought some programs and expected them to be magic bullets.  When I didn’t make a dime after a couple of months I decided it was all a bunch of crap and couldn’t really be done.

Fast forward about 6 months and I decided to give it another shot.  This time I did some research and picked one program.  Instead of jumping from program to program I decided I was going to fully master one thing before moving on.  I studied, listened, and implemented and not too long later I made my first sale.  This was super motivating and kept going.  While there were some setbacks and a learning curve, I kept making money.

I think that what really made the difference was that I found a mentor that I could trust and who spent time making sure that I understood what I was doing.  He wouldn’t let me move to the next step until I mastered the one that I was currently on.

The take away message from this post is to be patient, do your research, and find a mentor!!
