    A surefire 5 step plan to build your online (or any other kind) of business.


    1) Pre-contemplation
    2) Contemplation
    3) Preparation
    4) Action
    5) Maintainence


    Pre-contemplation is kicking around the idea if perhaps getting into a particular aspect of internet marketing. You think about a variety of ideas that may work, investigate them, do some due diligence and run the ideas by others in the industry, family and friends. You make no decisions but rather get a general over view of some ideas from an objective point of view.


    Contemplation is where you narrow down your choices to one choice and then do some serious due diligence. If building a site you do keyword research, if offering a service you look at the landscape to see the competition and need, if selling a product you examine your demographic and check profit margins against cost.


    Preparation is when it is time for you to start getting things ready to go... you get all your ducks in a row and make sure that there are no errors in your thinking so that when you start moving along there will be no hiccups and that you have the time and energy to pull off your enterprise.


    Action is the most enjoyable aspect of your move as you now take all the work you have done and bring it alive. Your ideas and due diligence take shape and you see the preparation become reality. The groundwork and background work you have done is your basis for your current actions.


    Maintenance is watching, waiting and caring for your new living business. The business is in place and you have revenue coming in and all you need to do now is to maintain the current flow of activity and tweak as necessary. You'll be counting your cash as you continue to see that any speed bumps that may come up get properly managed and make sure that your business is set for the future.


    Those steps will take some time for you to complete and will help you from making any rash decisions that could cost you in the long run. 5 simple steps to a setting up a solid business are all you really need in it's most base form.

    Great advice. This applies to any behavior change. You can also add Relapse to the list if it's applicable, though with a business, I don't think you can relapse.
