HOW I STARTED MY SIX FIGURE ONLINE BUSINESS

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to have a six figure online business.  I wanted to be successful in something online that would allow me to travel the world. I wanted to do something related to fashion and beauty as I am passionate about both.

Some people will tell you to do what makes the most money.  I don’t believe in that motto.  Do something you’re passionate about.  You’ll never work a day in your life again.

How I Started My Six Figure Online Business

 

I love fashion and beauty.  Fashion is important to me because I like expressing myself through my sense of style.  I like how the fabric feels against my skin and how it smells.  I love feeling good about myself and how I look is important to me.  Fashion helps me feel good and look good.  Beauty is a God-giving attribute. We can further enhance our natural beauty by taking care of our bodies.  Along this journey called life, I lost 50 lbs. and I feel good when I look in the mirror.  Adding to that self-love is important.  I am grateful for being able to have passions and share those passions with others, to help them feel absolutely gorgeous as well.

With that said, I knew I wanted to own an online business related to fashion and beauty.  I had it figured out.  And I decided to give eBay a shot.  I had a desire at this time in my life to sell hair extensions and did pretty well.  At this point in my life, I was 19.  This was back in 2005.  eBay was King.  I was making money with a successful dropshipping business.  I asked myself a few simple questions and I was up and running within a few days.

What do you want to do with your life? 

Travel the world and get to know God on a more spiritual and deeper level.

What about resources?

I’ll start a six figure online business that will allow me to do what I want, when I want.

And how will you obtain resources to create this six figure online business?

I’ll accomplish this by selling hair extensions to people around the world.

Ok done.  It was really quite that simple.  At that time in my life, I was obsessed with hair extensions.  I loved how they could make a woman look and feel beautiful and how her confidence level immediately shot up.  I wanted to provide that service to her.  My clients were all over the world.  They came from all walks of life and they were satisfied when they ordered from me.  This was the ultimate satisfaction; finding a problem and providing a solution. I had created the power to make a woman feel beautiful.  That was powerful to me.  In exchange for providing her that service, I was compensated.

In case you don’t already know, in order to be successful in life, you need to provide a service.  What problem can you fix?  What solution can you provide?  Even if you bake pies and sell them, you’re providing the service of a smile on someone’s face when they eat your pie.  When you go in to get an oil change, the mechanic is providing you a service.  No matter what you want to do, it can be done.  Anything is possible, if you put your mind to it.  Nowadays you can sell potatoes with hand-written notes and live the life of your dreams.

 Once you figure out what it is you want to do, let’s narrow down a plan of action.

Don’t have a plan?  Don’t panic.

Write down everything that makes you happy.  No matter how silly it may be, write it down.  Once you have your list, continue reading.

Now to the nitty gritty.

Comment below and tell me about your journey to creating your own six figure business.  I’d love to hear how you’re progressing!
