I built my first business to multiple six-figures fairly quickly in 1999. It was a service business that filled a major need for a select industry. It’s a business that many entrepreneurs can still start and build successful today. I sold that business and started a lifestyle business in 2011. I heard good things about generating income online and doing it passively, so I figured I could get to six-figures or more quicker. I was wrong.
For the first year, I made less than $10,000. I did everything the industry leaders advised to do. Yet, no forward progress. It was frustrating. I chased leads, I worked hard every day, and I felt like giving up more times than I can count.
