I’ve spent years making money online. The fact that it didn’t work out was of course due to a number of factors. As stubborn as I was, I just rumbled on and kept hoping it would work out. I also knew that I was going to succeed in the end, I felt that and I wanted to work hard for that too, but if you ignore a number of factors, it really won’t work.
So to make sure that it will take you a lot of time before you can start making money, I will give you a few factors that you should think carefully about before you start something.
I actually did what other internet entrepreneurs around me did. But why did they get their bins of money and not me? Very frustrating I can tell you, but that are lessons. I was only concerned with the fact that I wanted to make money from it and that is the wrong way of thinking. You achieve nothing with that.
I will now share with you what was really a changeover for me. It has definitely changed my business for me. I now do what I like and I earn my income from it.
I focused on too many things at once. I have a big disadvantage and that is that I like a lot of things to do and was actually busy with many things at the same time. Because of this I lost focus and nothing came off. So I had nothing to offer my customers either. Do you also suffer from this, then this is the first tip:
Do what you really like and focus on it.
Make choices and don’t keep doing everything. It can be a few things, as long as you can fully focus on these things.

These factors really make a difference to you if you want to be successful:
1. Do what you like. I started doing what I like. I was always trying to figure out what I could make money with and then you have the wrong focus. I came up with many ideas and saw a lot in others. I thought “I can do that too”. I started that fanatically on an Ebook or a guide and I was convinced that I could sell it to my customers. That will also work if you persevere, but I noticed that I was not busy with what I really liked. I just thought about what the customer would want and don’t get me wrong, it is very important to know what your ideal customer wants, but you can only help that customer if what it is about is also your passion and you are there knows a lot about it. What I did wasn’t really I .. What I really wanted was to inspire, help and motivate people. Only in a different way than I always have. I worked in healthcare and helping and worrying is in me. I had to do something with that. I just couldn’t figure out how to do that. I then focused on that and, after a budget coach course, chose the direction to help people who are struggling to make ends meet. Besides my training,
I have the experience myself, so I was able to help my clients well because I understand them like no other.
Besides that I have always been creative and so now I am wonderfully creative again and hope to combine this with this blog. Planning comes from getting your administration in order and I will get to work on that. Organize in a fun way and show customers that budgeting really doesn’t have to be boring. I want you to think carefully about what you really like to do, without immediately thinking about making money from it. Start by doing what you like, what you are good at and what you are passionate about. You will see that once you are doing that, the money will come naturally. Otherwise you only work against yourself.
2. Does your idea have value? If you are busy with what you like, you will see what has market value. Look at which part of what you do you can make money from. You can make more money with one easier and more money than the other. I always think and should be easier ways to make money. Think about which products or services you can offer that are of value and that require little effort for you to do and that people are willing to pay money for. If you offer something that is complex and that you cannot really put into words, how are you going to go about it? How do you offer something that is not clear to yourself? Not so .. you quickly make it too complicated and then people drop out. So don’t think too hard and try to make money in an easy way. If your product or service is clear and you can clearly show that it works, people are happy to spend money for it. Try to take the easy way and show that your product has value.
3. Write down what you are good at. If you compare the first two factors, a problem can arise there. Do what you like and sell what has value. You may be able to be very good at something and it sells well, but you don’t like to do that or you really enjoy doing something and you can’t sell it because nobody is going to pay for it. Now write down everything you are good at, what you like and what people want to pay money for. Make it visual for yourself. It would be nice if there is something that appears on both lists, because then you have found your focus. You will have to experiment with this, see what will work for you. That is the beginning of your adventure in the online world of making money.
What makes sense to you? Sometimes something seems logical and easy to you and you think everyone knows or can. I have always made that mistake. I thought I had nothing to report, but nothing could be further from the truth. So what I do without thinking might be a chore and something unknown to someone else. Make use of that and offer your knowledge. Start with the basics as they say and because you do not immediately offer too difficult information, the threshold is low for many people to start and so you have your first customers. You will then naturally grow with your customers because you are constantly developing yourself. Think about what is obvious to you and what you are good at and teach this to your customers.
Your customers don’t need to know everything you know! You help them, but they don’t have to become an expert like you are.
If I have less income for a month, it will not bother me very much, because I have known long enough how to deal with it. I don’t have to come up with a plan for that anymore. And that is precisely the information that I can easily give to customers who do struggle with this. I often thought too hard and didn’t know what information to give my customers, but by thinking less hard I can help many people who don’t even know where to start. The first online program was then the first that I started selling online and still sell. Think of a way that suits you with which you can share your information with your customers. There is no one way to do it, but there are several ways. Just don’t think too hard.
BONUS TIP: What you also have to take into account are your money blocks.
You will also have to work on your money blocks. You can still be so good at what you do and have such a beautiful product that everyone wants, but if you miss something and there is something that is holding you back, it will never work. You work against yourself if you don’t work on your money blocks. What is stopping you from making money? Do you believe that money can be made and do you believe that you can and should earn money with what you do. Do you think it’s worth what you ask for your product or service or do you have doubts about it? I really had to work on this because it cost me a lot of time and money because I wasn’t working on this. Focus on working on your money blocks. I had a lot of ideas and haven’t made any money on it for a long time. And then you are an entrepreneur without turnover. Of course I also want to help you with this. Those blockages have to go. You probably think that is easier said than done, but I can teach you how to go about it and you will see that everything will change for you too. I want you to get a profitable business and that you experience the freedom that comes with it. You get a company that suits you. Find out what is stopping you from making money and stop sabotaging yourself, what that is what you are doing. You work against yourself and you don’t know how to break this.
Knowledge is power! As soon as you know what your money block is, you can tackle that blockage and the moment it is lurking again, you immediately recognize it and you do not give yourself to it. This bit is so important when it comes to making money and why it doesn’t work out. You hear a lot about them that it is so easy to make money online, but you hardly hear this. And that while it is so important to be aware of what your blockages are when it comes to making money.
