5 Reasons You Won't Make Money Online in 2009

It's the start of the new year and that always means a huge influx of people turning to the internet to try their hand at making money online. Well, I am going to give you 5 reasons why you won't make money online in 2009 so you can save yourself some time and a few headaches.

1) You're Lazy

You don't want work for your money and you think that you can find an opportunity online where you can do nothing all day and the money will just pour into your bank account. Well, if that is what you think, you might as well give up on trying to make money online right now because it's not going to happen! Don't you think if it was really that easy then everyone would do it and we would all be rich?

2) You're Stupid

Don't get me wrong, you might have a Harvard degree with a 4.0 GPA but that doesn't mean you know anything about how to make money online. If you think starting another "make money online" blog is your path to internet wealth, you are wrong. I'm sure you have been led to believe that starting a MMO blog is the way to go, but it's not true. Find a few good smaller niche markets to get started in and you will make things a lot easier on yourself.

3) Your Mentor Sucks

You are following the wrong people in your quest to make money online. There are a few big name bloggers that newbie’s always seem to find and start following. The only problem is they don't actually teach you anything about how to make money online.

A good example of this is who rarely gives any useful information on his blog yet he has thousands of subscribers and for some reason his blog is where many beginners go to find make money online advice. If you really want to learn how to make money online you must follow people that will give you useful information.

Here's a post I wrote recently that will help you find some great blogs to follow:

4) You Don't Listen

When you are given real information by someone who actually knows how to make money online (like Me or Griz), you don't do what they say. If you want to be successful at making money online, you must listen to other successful people when they give you useful advice. Don't just shrug off advice from others because you think you can do it a different or better way.

5) You're Impatient

You want to get rich quickly and that's simply not going to happen. Yes, there are some ways to make money fast online but it won't be the kind of money you can live off. You must realize right now that making a living online is a marathon, not a sprint. If you come in thinking you will make thousands of dollars per month in a few months you're just going to get frustrated and quit.

There are plenty of people who try to make you believe you will get rich quick if you buy their program or system, but it will not happen. Just trust me on that one, I have been an internet marketer since 2003 and I have only seen it happen a couple times in all those years. It takes time and a lot of hard work to build a successful online business.

Now, if you read this far that's great! You are probably serious about wanting to make money online and might actually have what it takes. I want you to know that I am definitely not saying that you can't make money online. You certainly can! I do and I know many other people who do too.

This post is not meant to be literal and it is not aimed at any one person. The point of it is to give you some reasons why most people do not make money online. Avoid falling into the traps listed above and you will be much more likely to become one of the few success stories truly able to make a living online!

Good luck to you my friend. I am always here to help so let me know if you have any questions.

Dedicated to your success,
