The Role of Mindset in Starting Your Online Business

June 24, 2010 By: Yvonne A Jones Category: Business - Entrepreneur, Business - Home-Based Business, Mindset

Mindset has to do with the way you think, and the way you think has a direct bearing on the type of results you will realize from starting your online business.

When you made the decision to start a business online, you did so based on research that what you had to offer could be marketed online.  You will be marketing something you already know something about, or recently took the time to learn about; and it may be something that you are passionate about.

If you’d decided to for a corporation and purchase a franchise offline, you would have to give yourself a specific designation on the Articles of Corporation.  Your title would probably be CEO or President.  You have instead started an online business!  You do not need to set up a corporation to start an online business, but it it very important to keep in mind that because you’ve started a business, your mindset must be the same.  You are the CEO/President/Owner of your own company, and as such, you are responsible for the planning, goal-setting, and other activities associated with running a business.

Your mindset or the way you think will affect the way you approach your business.  Many people will do a lot more when they work for someone else who pays them based on hours worked rather than what they are really worth.  You must develop the mindset that as your own boss, you will have to be prepared to work twice as hard for yourself so that you can see a measure of success in a short time.

You may like diverse tasks, and you will have no shortage of that as the President/CEO/Public Relations Coordinator/Accountant/Secretary of your company.  However, what I’ve found, and what you will find as you get to know successful online marketers, it’s the doing of the same tasks over and over that’s going to allow you to see desired results.  Here is a critical area where you may need to change your mindset!  You must continue to do the same things over and over until you see the desired results as long as these steps are the ones that will lead to success in your business.  Only after you have mastered these steps and seen the results should you move on to a new set of steps.

    Definitely Yvonne! Your business mindset has something to do in the success or failure of your company. Thus, it is very important to have clearer goals and perception what you really want before starting a business and by these, you can assure to yourself that you are leading the right way.

  2. Hi Barbara,

    You have probably seen or heard of so many businesses that failed because entrepreneurs omitted to identify and develop the correct mindset before starting their business.
    They sometimes had unrealistic expectations which resulted in disappointment when things did not work out the way they imagined they would. Thanks for adding value to
    the idea that Mindset plays an important role in having a business.
