he task of making money online is very similar to eating an elephant. .
In this article I will explain how to make money online by drawing an analogy with the task of eating an elephant. Because the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.

And so it is with making money online and internet marketing. You will only succeed online if you set yourself realistic, realizable goals. You are bound to fail if you buy into the whole idea peddled by some unscrupulous internet marketers who claim to make the equivalent of the gross domestic product of a south American country every month.

To make money online with your home business you need to set yourself a simple goal of making your first dollar; once achieved you need to change your goal to, say, a dollar a day and then 5 dollars and so on. The confidence that you will derive from meeting realistic goals will show you that it is possible to make money with your online business but you do need to be realistic at the outset and build from there.

The key then is to rinse and repeat/scale up. This simply means that you repeat the process that allowed you to make your first dollar, perhaps invest your small profit in outsourcing or some tool that will allow you to repeat your successful process in less time than it took you manually.

This cycle of small incremental gains, investment of your profits back into your business is how real businesses are built. . whether they are online or offline.

The creation of pressure on yourself and setting absurd goals at the outset will lead to frustration, disillusionment and will probably see you quitting because of your unrealistic goals.
Take your time, learn your business, make mistakes, fall down and pick yourself back up again is a pattern of behaviour which will see you succeed with your business online.

And just like anything that is worth achieving it will require discipline, persistence and hard work.
And you will succeed. . just think of the elephant.
