I will share with you the truth about Starting An Online Business and why Time is Your Ally and Not Your Enemy
Probably while browsing the internet and looking for ideas on how to make extra money online you’d have seen products with fancy names like “The 8-Minute Profits” or “10 Minute Cash Tsunami”… or “Fast Traffic Cash Tornado”… and other imaginative titles just don’t end.
These ‘make money online’ products always make it seem like fast and easy profits is the way to go. The sales copy makes it look like one needs to put in minimal effort to rake in maximum profits in record time. In fact, hard work and slow progress is a thing of the past.
Many newbies are seduced by this idea of fast profits and are quick to shell out hard-earned cash on these flashy promises. Once they do get their products and try implementing the methods, they see no results and in some cases, negative results because they’ve spent money and seen no profits.
The truth of the matter is that building an online business takes time and effort.
“Hindi ito yung tipong pagbasa mo ng libro apply it and biglang yaman ka na” If that’s the case there will be loads of millionaires now!
Of course, there are some marketers who do make hefty sums within a short while. But in most cases, they either paid thousands to a good mentor or they were learning the ropes quietly for long before they made a big splash on the scene.
Yet, you never hear about the time spent figuring things out and laying the foundations. This is not ‘sexy’. We live in a world of microwaves and instant text messaging. Everyone wants fast results and they want them now… without sacrificing time or effort.
Unfortunately, in most cases, it just doesn’t happen, so when you see ads na nagsasabing I earned millions of pesos using this XYZ method, mag isip ng mabuti.
In this article, you’ll see why time is your ally. In fact, the longer you are in the game, the better. You want your online business to be a glowing ember that turns into a roaring flame… and not a flash in the pan that disappears in the blink of an eye.
- Haste Makes Waste
This is inevitable. When you try and rush things without exercising due diligence, you will set yourself up for mistakes and losses. If an online ‘guru’ tells you to purchase hosting from a specific service provider and you just rush off and do it… in time you may discover that the hosting service is atrocious and the reason you were recommended it was so that the guru could make a hefty commission.
This is just one example. There are many more that arise from not taking the time to analyze things. While over-analysis can lead to paralysis as far as taking action goes, there’s no denying that you must think things through before proceeding.
So Give yourself time to think. Pag Isipan Munang Mabuti
- Some Things Take Time
No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things take time.
Your skills improve with practice over time. If you’re a writer, you’ll become better and faster over time. You can’t become a bestselling author overnight.
The same applies if you’re running an e-commerce store and testing paid ads. You need time to experiment with the ads to separate the winners from the losers. If you try and rush things by dumping good money just to speed things up, you’ll end up losing money. You need the time to give you feedback on what works and what won’t.

It is a well-known fact that when Coca-Cola first started, it sold about 9 glasses a day.
Today, it sells over 1 billion servings every day. This is the power of time. If they had quit after one week just because of the unimpressive 9 glasses, Coca-Cola would not be a household name today.
If a multi-billion dollar company needed time to gain traction, so will you. With time, your blog will have more posts. Your websites will have more visitors. You will have more customers. Your brand will be more established and you will be excellent at what you do.
You need time. Forget about speed. You’re not in an Olympic 100-meter dash. Building an online business is a race that has no end. You’re in this for the long haul.

- Don’t Run If No One Is Chasing You
The question you need to ask yourself is this… Why are you rushing things? Is it making life easier for you?
Many beginners try to rush things so that they can quit their day job.
Yes, I hear this most of the time, but believe me, it’s the wrong thing to do. Stay in your Job while doing your online business. Because the Job will fund the online business. I been there until now empleyado pa rin ako. So, don’t stress yourselves unnecessarily by quitting your Job straight away.
You will see success faster and be able to ditch the job sooner if they actually went about it in a slower and sensible manner.
It may seem counterintuitive but by doing things slowly and in a more methodical manner, you will accelerate your results.
Do not be frantic for no reason like most beginners who just want fast profits but never see any despite trying for years. It often seems like they’re not going anywhere but they can’t wait to get there.
Take your time and do it right. Any other problem in life can be better accommodated by changing your mindset. Look at your day job as a way to fund your online business. Work at your job while working on your online business. Read My BlogPost Here — How To Start An Online Marketing Business Using FREE Tools
