One of the most important aspects of having a booming online business is being clear on why you want it.
And it is NOT about the money.
Businesses without a strong why often go up in smoke because there is nothing to pull the entrepreneur forward and motivate her on a consistent basis. What fuels your passion and commitment? Your why might be so that you can live with full-blown freedom. Or your why may be because achieving a certain income level would allow you to impact the world in a big way via philanthropic deeds.
Identify the reasons why you are growing your online business (other than monetary). Make a list of these reasons and keep them in a place where you can periodically return to it. There will come a time when you will doubt whether growing an online business is a good idea. A great way to keep going in tough times is
to go back and revisit the reasons why you decided to go down this path to begin with.
