Proverbs 22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
Starting an online business isn’t hard to do but you must be committed to stay the course and learn as much as you can before launching out to the World Wide Web.
It is a great feeling when you set-up your first online business. And yes, you will find that there are thousands of so-called experts vying to suck you in and to get you to buy their start-up videos, books and services.
This is not to say that selling information is bad…because it is not. What is bad is scrupulous individuals who package free advice from credible professionals and sell you something they themselves have never used.
Also, be warned that when you are going to start an online business, that you do not get caught up on the “you can make thousands daily’” by just using this simple method.
The danger for newbies stepping into the online world of business is that you have a great ocean of deadly sharks readying to devour unsuspecting start-ups.
One thing you need to know is that before putting out any money for “advice” or “trainings”, you should first research to find “free and credible” mentors and classes/courses.
Also, I would highly suggest you identify at your local/state labor offices if they have any entrepreneur/small business workshops, classes or webinars.
Starting an online business offers you opportunities to capitalize on new products and services.
What an online business shouldn’t be however is setting up illegal operations that cheat the consumer.
If you don’t have time to take classes right away, I would highly suggest listening to podcasts and viewing videos that will give you guidance in the do’s and don’ts of online business.
Finally, just like a brick and mortar business, having an online business requires that you must also follow federal commerce laws as well as business regulations where you reside (state and local).
To help you on your way, I have below a list of websites; podcasts and videos suggestions that you might want to consider before kick-starting your online business.
