Q&A: Why am I struggling to make a living online?


Here is a question that all of us who venture into online entrepreneurship ask ourselves.

We spend sleepless nights thinking about it but don't often want to admit the truth.


Why am I struggling to make a living online?


My answer to this would sound mystical to many but it will ring "true to the core" if you are honest with yourself.

Struggle is not exclusive to only a group of people. It's a Universal principle. Some people call it 'struggle' and some people call it 'blessing in disguise'. The sooner you realize that it is a 'blessing in disguise' the faster your growth.


Responsibility


When we decide to become an "entrepreneur", we take on more responsibility. Responsibility towards our family, responsibility towards our audience, and responsibility towards our self.


Entrepreneur = More responsibility


If you are not genuinely meeting the standards of responsibility that entrepreneurship requires, then we call it struggle.


When we match our efforts to the responsibility of a true entrepreneur, then we learn valuable lessons and feel successful.


Strategy First


Many of us focus on tactics and hacks to get where we want to get. Forgetting that Strategy comes first, and then tactics.


For example... Imagine that we are taking a trip to California from New York.


Strategy - is knowing the destination, and the road map.
