Chat about starting a new projectOctober 22, 2009
Today I was chatting to a friend of mine about developing new ways of making money on the web and after discussing different options and what would be required to make it successful my friend said he wasn’t really up for the effort that would have to be out in to get the online activities to critical mass so it can start giving a real return.
In the past year I have had similar conversations with a few other people I know and after their initial enthusiasm at the idea of some easy money they lose interest because there is no immediate gratification or big return. The get rich quick goal failed and they go back to where they were and again dream of winning the lottery to solve all their problems,
So, if you are going to start a project make sure you have taken into account that just like your current day job there will be boring bits that you just have to go through to get to the good stuff. If you don’t consider yourself to be that type of person then start there. Start with figuring out how you can give the commitment and then come back to the project with the knowledge that you are in it for the long run.
Then you will be successful.
