The biggest mistake of all, which people still make every day, is believing they can do it all by themselves, without leveraging technology or the skills of others.
To the best of my knowledge no-one has ever become great or successful without the guidance of another person.
That person may have been an inspiring teacher, a parent or relative, their priest/minister/pastor, spouse or partner, former boss, a fictional character even.
We all need, it seems, to have someone to turn to for advice when things aren't going as well as we would like or we've hit an obstacle.
Even if we go into ourselves and ask "What would <person> do?" and then listen for the answer.
It always amuses me when the media describes someone as a "self-made" man or woman.
We are all self-made but only the successful admit it and even they will freely tell you about the person who inspires them, motivates them or guides them.
So really we are talking about self-made with help.
Where do we go from here though?
What if your efforts at making yourself haven't resulted in you being the person you actually want to be?
Is it too late to make a change and become a re-modelled person?
I don't believe it is.
Somewhere amongst these pages you'll find my story about how I used to be painfully shy and introverted and how I managed to turn that around to the point that now most people who know me would say I'm extroverted.
I can assure you that I'm actually a pretty ordinary person who has made as many mistakes as I have had time for.
I keep telling the kids that smart people learn form other people's mistakes because they just don't have the time to make all of them themselves.
So, are you making the mistake of not getting the help and guidance you need to make your online business profitable?
