I am well aware that I talked about quick action very recently, but I had a moment of very quick action yesterday which I think a lot of people would be interested in. Yesterday started out as a normal day–I got to school at around 8, finished track at around 4:30, and stayed for a while talking to friends, doing homework, and watching a volleyball game in the gym. On our way home, the sky looked innocent, but as we drove farther, a storm was catching up to us. I knew I would get home safely, but I also heard about thunder and lightning which to me is no fun to be in. Not only that, but I feared that the bad weather would take out the connection I had to the internet which would lead to no tweets and no blog posts for this blog and my other blog as well. I got home and ran right up to do my work. I scheduled tweets and blog posts for two of my blogs (including this one). I saw lightning and heard the thunder as I typed, but since this blog post is very long, everything turned out to be okay. Waiting 30 minutes to do my work (eating, shower, etc.) would have resulted in me risking losing the internet and the ability to write more content.
You can accomplish any task without anyone stopping you. There may be some people who disagree with what you do or discourage you, but they don’t matter. Giving in to negative comments about what you do will force you to question the purpose of your business or what you do. Questioning yourself will lead to self-doubt which will make you reconsider what you are doing. The workload might be too strenuous and not produce the expected results. These are the times when our true character is tested. We figure out if we give in to others with the help of our self-conscience, stop ourselves from going further, or keep on propelling forward.
There is a HUGE difference between earning money and winning money. Winning money requires good fortune or as other people would like to describe it, luck. Winning money can rarely be done on a consistent basis, and those winnings do get spent somehow. Winners may think their winnings are 10 time more than they really are and throw money away. Soon those winnings start to disappear, but earnings never disappear. It takes work to get earnings, not pure luck. Working to earn money will give you a greater value for what money is really worth and how limited it truly is. When I earn money, I am always happy, but that’s not because I see the hundreds of dollars moving to my Paypal account, but instead, I am seeing all of my hard work pay off. When you are an earner, it’s not about the money you earn, but it’s about becoming independent and able to thrive on your own.
Writing online gives you a strong voice that hundreds or even thousands of people will be able to see. Writing online has room for profit and can help the visitor at the same time. The writer can also write about anything that he/she desires (as long as it is appropriate). There are few set rules about what to write about and what not to write about. Other than that, you can keep on filling all of your websites and blogs with content that will get viewed by hundreds and eventually thousands of people. Your daily experiences, favorite product, hobby, or expertise can all find their way on a website or blog. The sky is the limit with writing online for profit and educating others.
Younger entrepreneurs are open to more advantages. The content written on a website would be more appreciated if a teenager wrote the content than if an adult did. This is because teenagers entrepreneurs are harder to find than adult entrepreneurs, and teenagers also have a lot to do in their daily lives. I have received a lot of lovely comments on some of my Squidoo lenses that say things like how someone is shocked that I am making money online at a young age. Younger entrepreneurs do have an advantage, and it is important to let kids know that they will have this advantage if they start their businesses now. There is no need to wait for the taxes to pile up before you start making money.
Sometimes, it is absolutely necessary to take a break. It is just as important to not lose track of the time during that break. A break that lasts a half an hour to an hour is a good break, but if you lose track of the time, hours could go by. Then you will be scrambling to get all of your work done before the next day. I do take multiple breaks each day, but I don’t end my day without having all of my work for the next day done.
