The Secret to Having a Successful Online Business

by Martha Giffen

Everybody wants to know the big secret.  Why some online businesses are very successful and others fold rather quickly or die a slow death.

Take a tip from me!

The longer I have my online biz and the more I put into it, “suddenly” doors start opening at every turn. Is it requiring action on my part?  Of course!  And even though I know there’s no way to be successful without action, I actually believe it was something I did before I decided to be an internet marketer.  Before I took action, I was busy.


And planning.

And having faith. There, I said it.


In myself.  In my ideas. In knowing that I could make it all happen.

Faith starts before any start-up money is spent.  Before any sites are up and running.  Before any customers show up to purchase.  It’s the secret.

After that, with action, it all starts falling into place!

Another tidbit: Never prejudge where your business will go.

Have a plan, yes.  But be willing to embrace opportunity when it shows up.  Continue to give of yourself freely and the opportunities will present themselves.  Yes, I find myself picking up accolades along the way (guest blogger, radio show guest, contributing author, speaker) and I am forever grateful.  But I am picking up much more.

More faith in my business.  More faith that I can make it bigger.  More faith that it will continue to grow in a financially sound way.

See where I’m going?

As my business grows, so does my faith in my venture.  I continue to be exposed to new ideas, new experiences, new contacts.  By doing what I love to do.  Communicate.  Teach.  Help.

My followers are folks who are just starting out online.  They come here for guidance.  I help  people see that the J.O.B. they are stuck in can be eliminated. By telling them what works for me.

This blog helps people make sense of all the information overload.   It gives folks an up-close-and-personal look at my mistakes so they can  get to the success part quicker.  Easier.

Today, it’s not about my mistakes.  It’s about something I did that was right.

Have faith in yourself, your ideas, and your business.

That’s the million dollar secret!
