Making Money Online and Surfing – Five Things in Common

Making Money Online and Surfing

What does making money online and surfing have in common?  Both have steep learning curves and the rewards take time, courage, practice and patience.

Surfing

The Learning Curve

We have been in Solana Beach, California for 2 weeks and have been intrigued by the surfing community.  We have watched the beginner surfers fall over and over only to get up to try again. These beginners wait for a wave, begin paddling frantically and then either miss the wave or catch the wave and fall within seconds.  We enjoyed watching how passion and courage had the power to conquer the challenge.

5 Things to Know as a Beginner Surfer 

  1. The Learning Curve - surfing is one of the most difficult and complex sports in the world

Making Money Online

The Learning Curve

Like surfing making money on line  has a steep learning curve.  If you are new at working from home and making money from a home based business there are interesting comparisons between learning to surf and learning how to make money online. Making money online is a new skill that takes courage and the willingness to have the initiative to take action.  The first step is often the most difficult. It's different and a little scary working remotely at first, especially if you are used to a 9 to 5 traditional office environment. 

5 Things to Know as an Online Entrepreneur

  1. The Learning Curve - the learning curve is steep and the key to success is to try and try again.  When things get tough you dust yourself off and keep going.  Deciding to quit is the only reason you fail
  2. The Importance of the Internet and a Laptop - making money online gives you the freedom to work whenever and wherever you want as long as you have a laptop and access to the internet
  3. Choosing an Adequate Spot to Work - find a community of people with similar values. Six Figure Mentors has been essential for our development and has given us the confidence to trust the process and enjoy the journey
  4. Have Someone or a Community Show You the Basic Technique - we embraced the Six Figure Mentors (SFM) community to help us learn the business of making money online
  5. Learn the Ethics of Working from Home and Making Money Online - similar to surfing and traditional business there are guidelines we follow when working online

Online Solution That Works

We began learning about making money online while we were Executive Recruiters.  We found Six Figure Mentors, an educational community that gave us the gift of 7 free videos that opened our eyes to what’s possible with a laptop and access to the internet.

If you are a hard worker with limited technical knowledge and are looking for time and financial freedom, leveraging the internet may be an option for you. Hope you take time to look at the 7 free videos.  These videos changed our life.

At our age we watch and marvel at the surfers from a distance. The big difference,  making money online has kept us young and our age works to our advantage in the online world.
