Creating an Online Business
Continue the Journey

Well done on completing the course, whether you enrolled at the college, braved the work on your own or had a little help. I hope you agree with me that creating an online business is worthwhile the effort ... and that it's fun!

You're now set on the road to a successful internet business. Keep building content, keep writing pages, keep building traffic .... in fact, keep doing all the good things we've discussed.

You WILL see more visitors.

You WILL see your traffic grow.

You WILL generate more income.

But, of course, there will be days when you feel overwhelmed, when nothing seems to happen. Days when the dream of creating an online business seems like a bad idea. Days when you don't have the energy to push that snowball one step further to the top of the hill.

That's normal.

If you have a day like this, then sit back and take a breath. Don't look at your site for a day or two. Think about your dreams instead. Your passion for your online business will return ... that's why you chose your site concept, remember?

There are other things you can do too. Browse the SBI forum, especially the Watercooler and listen to other SBIers stories of success and failure, of effort and rewards. It helps with regaining your perspective.

Listen to music that inspires you, or a motivational tape. Dig out a poem you like and haven't looked at in ages, or a favourite book. Or try a track of hypnosis.

And if you're really stuck, you can always mail or call me. Just to talk it over, or to discuss a problem that really bugs you.

Keep checking back here, too. I'm planning to design quarterly review sessions, especially for students who have done the course a little while ago and are well underway crating an online business. This is your chance to check in with your former classmates, see how everyone is doing and talk through your experiences. Exchange views, pass around some ideas and get feedback.

I'm looking forward to this one ... and I'll post the dates when I have them!
