6 Tips on Overcoming the Obstacles to an Online Business
2005 Angela Wu 


 


On the Internet, it's 'easy come, easy go'.

Opportunities are everywhere you care to look online.
Tempting promises of easy riches and instant millionaires
stare us in the face. People fall for the hype, discover
that it's much more work than they'd thought, and dump the
'business'.

Half-hearted attempts at making money online simply aren't
enough. If you've been online for some time now, you no
doubt have come to the same conclusion: building a viable
Internet business takes time and effort - just like any
other business. We all lead busy lives ... but if you
truly want to start a home business, it's going to require
a commitment to overcoming whatever obstacles lie in your
path. Some of the most common include ...

1.  No Time.

Lack of time is definitely one of the biggest obstacles
to starting your own business. Many people are working
full-time at another job, have children to care for, do
volunteer work, and generally lead busy lives.

There is no doubt about it: starting a business is going
to require sacrifices. Think about any time-wasters you
currently indulge in; can you use the hour you spend
watching TV each night to work on your business instead?

This isn't to say you should cut everything else out of
your life. Everyone needs to relax, eat right, and
exercise to stay healthy. But it's never going to be
the 'right time', so getting creative about organizing
your time is a must. You can find some wonderful time-
management tips at

2.  Frustration and Complaints about Using a Computer.

This is *very* common; obviously you and your computer
are going to have to be on the best of terms if you're
planning to do business online! Yet many people ignore
this, get frustrated, and give up.

You don't have to be an 'expert'; you just need to be
comfortable. End PC rage by taking a little time to
learn how they work. Check with your local college or
community center for appropriate courses, or get yourself
a copy of the excellent 'Windows for Newbies', a wonderful
book that uses a picture-driven learning system,

3.  Uncertainties about Learning HTML.

HTML is the language used to create web pages. It's often
called a 'programming language', conjuring up intimidating
mental images of techno-geeks madly coding complicated
software in some dark, dank basement.

Have no fear. HTML is a really just a simple formatting
language - much like what the old word processing software
used to use. There are plenty of excellent tutorials
available. The one I recommend is Joe Barta's excellent
online tutorial, available at
http://www.pagetutor.com/pagetutor/makapage/index.html


4.  Worries about 'Technical' Stuff

It can feel somewhat overwhelming to try to figure out
what's what when you're new to the world of computers or
the Internet. And it can be hard to ask questions that may
seem 'simple' to others. For a set of great (free) tutorials
written in Plain English, visit

5.  Money!

Surprisingly, this is one of the LEAST mentioned worries
I've heard from my visitors and newsletter subscribers.
Starting an online business doesn't have to be expensive
at all; so long as you already have a computer, your
expenses can very easily be less than $100 a month - and
often much less. My own expenses in the first few months
online were less than $50 a month, just for Internet
access and web hosting.

Some options for covering your business costs include:

* Continue to work full-time while working on your
business part-time;

* Work part-time at your job and part-time on your
business;

* Use some of your savings;

* Borrow from family or friends;

* Take out a small business loan. Check out the Small
Business Association's list of financial assistance
programs at

6.  Fears About a Lack of Support from Family & Friends.

This is a tough one. Family and friends are supposed to
support us because they love us, right?

For many of us, family and friends who are seeking to
'protect' us from scams may either deliberately or
inadvertantly make discouraging remarks.

There are no hard and fast rules for handling family and
friends; if you're not yet comfortable telling others about
your online ventures, then don't. Otherwise, just be firm:
state that you are working hard to build a viable business
and that you would appreciate their support.

Building a suport network of like-minded individuals may
help. Search for suitable forums at http://www.delphi.com/

Make a conscious choice to put forth the time and effort
needed to build a viable business. Make this your year
to increase your online income!
