Starting a business, be it online or offline, is not for pussies. If you have no experience you will probably only lose money in the beginning, sometimes lots of money. Some facts from personal experience: You won't get rich overnight and most people will fail You will have to deal with a lot of issues everyday You will spend most of your days tired You will have no time for family, friends and fun People will stop calling you and inviting you to parties after a couple of years You will be very luck if you break even in the first year You will have to do most of the work until you grow to a certain point If you are a reasonable person, self-doubt will come, it's just a matter of when, be prepared Your business will consume your health, physically and mentally Your relationships will deteriorate Most of the time won't be fun You will worry a lot You should always reinvest your profits and never increase your personal expenses You know that saying: ?work smart, not hard?? It doesn't apply to the real world, you have to work smart and hard for a long time before you are able to live the dream The line between being a success and a failure is very thin. One choice is the difference between being homeless and being a millionaire. Plus online business are very, very volatile. One month you make $20k, the other you only lose money, it's not for the faint of heart. You will want to give up and, statistically, you should. So, as you can see, starting a business is for the ones ignorant enough or crazy enough. I'm in the latter category. I wish you the best!
