For as many benefits that we can come up with on how the internet has changed our lives for the better, there are also plenty of ways it has made things worse. No, I’m not talking about how you can no longer walk into a video store and rent a movie or that nearly every local collectibles store is now out of business.
The example I am specifically referring to in this article is that pretty much anyone now thinks they have what it takes to create a successful blog, brand or startup of their own — when most of the time they don’t!
“Fail often so you can succeed sooner.â€ â€“ Tom Kelley, Ideo partner
Before we move on, let me first make this clear — I absolutely love the internet and the opportunity it’s blessed us with, along with the concept of new entrepreneurs being made everyday — however, I also see people diving into their own businesses and offering their services to others on a daily basis, many of which simply don’t have the mindset, skills or dedication to find success.
So what do I recommend?Â To simply get educated before jumping into the game and either expecting results over night, or calling yourself an expert.
