Building a successful online business can be hard or it can be easy. Which way would you like to do it? I'm the kind of guy that likes the easier softer way.

If you agree with this approach then I've got some ideas that you may want to implement. This is assuming that you've already done your market research and have a business that is actually in demand and will remain in demand in the future. This isn't for the e-book folks, the flash in the pan folks, or the hit and run types of people. This is how to develop a strong successful and hopefully very profitable business using basic tools that have stood the test of time.

One of the great things about being on the 'Net is the fact that business can be done anywhere and the system is on 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It doesn't cost any more than to be there for 2 hours a day. When I was in retail every minute I was open was additional overhead.

One of the first things that I needed to do was get my ego out of the way. I believe I'm a fairly smart guy...hopefully a little above average...but soon I realized there is always going to be someone who is smarter than me. It took a while but I realized that was a good thing. If I find lots of smart people who build this business it just makes my life a lot easier and simpler. Now my goal is to find these people, show them the potential and let them run with it.

The second thing I am making sure that I do is not do anything that is not replicable. Even though I'm looking for people who are smarter than I am it doesn't mean they have the same experience that I have to build a business. I use the training that the "Gurus" on the Internet provide as their information is already prepackaged and easy to access for anyone who is actually interested in building a business. I'm not trying to re-invent any wheels here. I just want to build a system that can be a cookie cutter for the next person inside my group. Am I going to tell you who my "Gurus" are? I sure am, as soon as your on our team. Suffice to say they are likely the best in their niche...whatever that may be.
