I Love Working Online

Confucius said: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I love working online.  As a matter of fact, I am excited every day to get to the computer and get started.  Jolynn and I launched our first online business over three years ago and I am just as excited today as I was on that first day. I feel very lucky to be doing what I do on a daily basis.

Working online is an aspiration for many people. Many people think that working online means spending an hour a day on your computer and raking in the dough. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that’s not how it works. As a matter of fact, Jolynn and I did not take a penny from our business for the first two years. We put any profits back in to our site as an investment for the future. I, personally, spend 8-12 hours a day at the computer. Can you see why you need to love what you are doing?  For those who thought the money was going to be easy, they would have walked away after the first couple of months.  And the fact is, many people do walk away.

So why did we stick with it?  Well, we both love it.  We love working online, we love working in the advertising industry, we love networking with other owners, we love helping members achieve their goals, we love the challenge of creating a productive resource for others, and we love the possibilities of what the future holds.

Take time to think long and hard about starting an online business.  Find someone in your industry who is doing what you think you would like to do and then ask a ton of questions.  If you decide you want to become an online entrepreneur, then I hope you love working online, just like I do.

Put Your Goal In Writing

One of the tricks I have been taught for achieving goals is to put your goal in writing.  So today, I am doing just that for our site Hot Flash Hits.  Our next membership goal is to have 10,000 members.

Meaningful Goals

Creating a goal which is meaningful to you is an excellent way to keep yourself motivated to work toward that goal.  For me, hitting the 10k member mark will be a HUGE accomplishment.  For me, hitting the 10k member mark will mean we have established a foot hold in the advertising industry.  Setting this goal gives me meaning to the work I do each day.

Achievable Goals

I try to set meaningful goals which can be achieved in a reasonable time frame.  Having 10k members at Hot Flash Hits has always been an achievable goal. Now, it achievable in a reasonable time frame.  In other words, now I can taste it……….  now I can smell it……. now I can see it happening.  Set your goals so you can visualize yourself achieving them. Create a reasonable daily plan of action to achieve those goals.  Then run with it.

Our Growth

There are a lot of sites out there which have grown much faster than Hot Flash Hits.  I am very happy with our slow and steady growth.  I feel our slow and steady growth is building a responsive membership with advertising in mind.  No, we don’t have 1000 bot surfers sign up in a day and we are very proud of that fact.  We do our best to target real members who are there to advertise not just surf 1000 sites to earn cash. We want you to grow your business and we will continue to monitor the membership base with the intention of building a solid base of real people.

We are very proud of the Hot Flash Hits Family.  Thank you for being a member.
