So, what’s one of the biggest mistakes a lot of online entrepreneurs make when building their online business?
Well if you guessed eating too much pizza, that would be the wrong answer. It’s actually spending too much time focusing on how much money they can make instead of focusing on how many individuals they can help.
When thinking of entrepreneurship, it’s easy to get caught in flashy cars, traveling around the world and owning a penthouse that costs over 10k a month.
Before you come after me with pitchforks like an internet mobster though, I want to make one thing clear first. Having large dreams, ambitions and goals are not bad things at all. I have nothing against pursuing a more premium lifestyle if that’s your cup of tea. As a matter of fact, one of my dreams is to own a Lamborghini Huracan.
The issue becomes putting emphasis on solely making money. The focus needs to be on helping individuals. Once you understand this mindset, everything will make much more sense. This is why people that are good at solving problems get paid… A LOT.
See, when it comes to making money online or running any type of business for that matter, the market will ultimately tell you what you’re worth.
For this reason, I’m begging you to stop putting emphasis on making gobs of money right off the bat! Rather, focus on providing great valuable content for your audience. If the audience likes what you do and you solve their problem, monetizing your personal brand will become just that much simpler.
So, what’s the takeaway?
Focus on how you can improve other people’s lives because those people will take care of you.
Whether you’re a comedian that makes people smile or a counselor that helps individuals get through emotional knots, perfect your craft and show interest in people.
The more value you give, the more you receive.
This is my motivation for you today. Go out there, help people, and changes lives!
Always remember to Dream Big. Think Different.
