Where do you start?

Where do you Start?

Lost1There is an old Irish Joke where a tourist asks a local citizen.

“Excuse me sir, can you tell me how to get from here to Londonderry?”

The local replies, “Well if I were you I wouldn’t start from here at all”

So where are YOU starting from in your quest to make money using the Internet?

What I am trying to say is. What sort of person are you? Do you have what it takes to become an Internet Marketer, An Internet Entrepreneur, an Online Millionaire or even just make a living wage from your Desktop?

Yep! You have probably heard the phrase many times before but I will give it you again. IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU. If, like me you thought “well that’s obvious of course it starts with me. I’m the one that has to get on and do something”. You have missed the point.

Your success or failure in this, as with any other, endeavour depends on your Attitudes, Opinions, Skills, Knowledge, Aptitude, and above all your Personality.

You can make changes in most of the above but it is almost impossible to change your basic personality. You will probably have an entirely different view of yourself from that of your friends or family so ask them their opinion of what your personality is like. If you react with anger or disbelief at what they say you probably have some work to do on your Attitudes and Opinions.

Here are some of the things that will help or hinder you in your quest for success, they are not in any particular order of importance but you may want to assign a level of importance having thought carefully about yourself.


Focus, Concentration, Patience, Prudence, Tolerance, Honesty, Integrity, Generosity, Sympathy, Understanding, Determination, Diplomacy, Confidence, Vision, Creativity, Sobriety, Sense of Humour, Able and Willing to Learn, Some Technical Aptitude. Ability to follow instructions without deviation.

If you have just some of these qualities congratulations! You are starting in the right place and you can work on the weak points as we go along.

If you have all of them, you probably already have a perfectly good job as The Pope or a Mother Theresa Tribute Act.


Anger, Jealousy, Intolerance, Impetuosity, Pettiness, Pomposity, Conceit, Meanness, Greed, Fear, Impatience, Bigotry, Dishonesty, Procrastination, Drunkenness, A closed Mind,

If you just have a couple of these. Hey! Nobody is perfect. If you know your weaknesses, we can also work on that as we go along. The secret is to recognise your weaknesses and be willing to do something about it.

If you have all of them, you probably think you are perfect and are not the sort of person to go asking your friends or family for their opinion.

By all means have a go and see how you get on. I don’t rate your chances much.

I wouldn’t start from here at all.
