Do you want to make money online? The secret is to treat what you are doing as a business.
The #1 reason my blogging grew into a business was that I began to treat it as one. – Darren Rowse
Register Your Business
If you are intent on making money online, then you want to establish a business. Do whatever it is that you need to do where you live to make it official. That way you have to treat it is a business because it is.
Put Aside Time
If you have a day job, you can’t just decide not to work. Likewise, put aside time each day to work on your business. You will have to prioritise your day so that you make time for your business. If you don’t – or can’t, then is it even worth saying that you will make money online? Because it sure doesn’t look like you want to.
It can be hard to prioritise. There is always so much that you need to do. Think to yourself, “does this lead to bringing money into my business?” If you are writing a blog post about something to establish your authority, maybe you might say this is going to help you get some money to your business. But moving your sidebar left and right 2px is probably not. Ask yourself if what you are doing moves your business forward. Concentrate on it if it does.
