I felt the same way.
Every one of those people knows somebody who has quit the 'get-up-and-go-to-work' grind and is making a very good living by working on their personal computers from the comfort of their own homes.
Working from home sounds like an ideal solution to them.
Many of these dissatisfied souls will quit their jobs and plunge head-first into internet marketing.
They have no preparation, no knowledge of what they are doing, no education, and virtually no hope of success.
Without researching the systems, many folks have failure looming on their horizon, and they don't even suspect.
Many, in fact, give up before they even get going.
They try a couple of online jobs, mistaking them for actual businesses, then quit when the going gets a little rough.
Perseverance is the name of the game in anything that is worth doing.
The fact is that according to many sources, more than 90% (Ninety percent) of all Internet business start-ups end in failure within the first 120 (one hundred twenty) days.
Yes, you read that right.
NINETY PERCENT! Online know-how and vision are completely lacking in many people's vocabulary.
It sure was lacking in mine.
I didn't even know what was missing, before I decided to find reliable resources and learn about Internet marketing from those with integrity.
This 90% failure rate should be a warning to those who are considering trying their hand at online business rather than at a job in the brick and mortar world.
At the same time, it should be a great motivation to educate yourself about the ends and outs of business, so that you can beat the odds joining the ranks of the successful.
Of course, success is possible.
There IS that other 10% (ten percent) that do succeed.
The thing is success doesn't happen by accident.
Success happens because of some very important factors.
Success happens because people have the right ideas about internet marketing and how it works.
They do not expect to get rich quick or be able to make a killing over night and retire to a tropical isle.
It is strange but somehow the same people who wouldn't dream of starting a real world business, think they can make a go of an internet business even though they have no business background.
People will go into an internet business with the idea that they no longer have to get up and go to work.
They think they can simply work when the feel like it and still make a good living.
They simply do not expect to have to work hard.
The key in beating the system is to educate yourself on the unique business systems available, and pursue what you are passionate about.
