As a follow-up to my original post:
Internet mythology teaches that 1 out of every 100 people who try to make money online succeed. I don’t know if that’s true, but I suspect the true numbers are even worse.
If you’ve been trying and failing and you are about to give up, you are probably at or close to the point where 99 give up. In order to join the 1 in 100 club, push on past that point. Almost every person in that club was close to giving up at some point. The longer you push, the better your odds become as more of the 99 around you drop out. But when you stop trying, your odds go to zero instantly.
Those of us who make money online are not necessarily the smartest one percent of the population, only the one percent that pig-headedly kept at it.
