Where Do You Place Your Values?

Have you ever noticed when you go shopping with someone, whether
it is a family member or a friend, you are each drawn to the
things where you place your highest values? For example, just a
couple of weeks ago I needed to make a purchase pertinent to my
online business so I had my mum with me and I took her into the
electronics store to make my purchase. Now my mum has no idea
about computers or electronic gadgets so was totally bored and
there was nothing of interest to her in that particular store.
Now, you may be wondering where I am headed with this story.
Well if you think about it, the things you value most in your
life are easy to do. Whereas the things that are not highest in
your values are always last on your list of things to do.
So it is with this online business. You work at it tirelessly as
you are determined to make it work. Every spare minute you have
is spent on article writing, publishing articles, tweaking that
website, writing your blog, doing your due diligence, setting up
that autoresponder and everything else that's needed to get your
business automated and running like clockwork. It needs to be
just right before you get going.......right? Wrong. Just get
going and it will fall into place.
Getting started in this business is not about having it all set
up perfectly. When you are just starting out and have limited
knowledge and time, the idea is just to get going so you can
start to generate some interest and traffic to your site or blog.
It is great to have everything set up, but it does take time.
The time that is needed to allocate everything that is on your
list of values. Getting the business up and running is important
but if you have other commitments that are equally important they
also need to be addressed.
Working online is fun and if you are reading this article you
will know what I mean. Start with a blog that is easy and free
to set up. I used wordpress.com for mine. Just start writing
about what inspires you and what you think your readers will want
to know about you. You will be surprised at how easy it is once
you get going. Set up links in that blog to direct your readers
to where they can find your business and that is the simplest way
to generate interest.
