Article #1
The Three P's of Success!

Terri Seymour of

Starting and building an internet business is not an easy task. There is the never-ending learning about promotion, marketing, website design and building, technical problems, HTML, CGI, java; the list goes on and on. There are a few things you should think about when you are planning your online business. These three things are some of the most basic yet most important aspects that could make your business a success!

These are Perseverance, Passion and People!

**Perseverance - Building a successful online business can take months or even years. Examine your goals and your life.


Will you have what it takes to not give up when things are going bad?


Do you have the determination to work this business for weeks or months without making any money?


Do you want to give up most of the small amount of spare time that you now have?

Go over these questions in your mind and see what you come up with. Despite all the "get rich quick" ads you see, this most likely will not happen. Most people will not even get rich slowly, however, you can make a good income.

You might start making a small amount of money in a few weeks or months, then you might not make any for a few months. You must not let yourself give up, when business is not all it's cracked up to be! You must have Perseverance!

**Passion - When you are choosing your business, build your business around something that interests you, something that you are passionate about. This will help you keep going when things get tough.

Will I want to work with this business everyday? Does this business interest me enough to keep my determination going?


Will my passion override any doubts that I will have about becoming successful?

Ask yourself these questions and see what the answers are. You cannot build a successful business around something you have no passion or knowledge about. If you are nuts about horses, build your business around horses, not cats! You must have Passion!

**People - When you are working an online business, you have to get involved with people. It may not be face to face, but you will have to deal with people from all over the world, everyday. Treat everyone with respect and answer all questions in a timely and courteous manner. You must also be able to deal with rude people. Treat these people with respect also. Be firm, but courteous. Rarely have I had to deal with this problem, but it does come up.

Do I want to have to deal with all those people on a day-to-day basis?


Can I handle all the different situations that can arise when dealing with people?


Can I accept the fact that I cannot please everyone and be able to handle the rejection?

You do not necessarily have to be "the life of the party" but you must be able to handle the problems that working with all kinds of people can bring. You must be able to deal with people!

I must tell you that I have made so many friends since starting online. It is one of the most enjoyable aspects of Internet marketing.

When I planned out Seymour Products, I really thought about what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. Because of that planning I have learned a few things about myself.

I have learned that I have more perseverance than I thought possible.

I have learned that I have a passion for helping people get started with their business and that I am good at it.
I have learned that working with people all over the world has been a thoroughly enjoyable, rewarding and interesting experience.

Remember the three P's of success when planning your goals and your chances of building a profitable business will be much greater!
