online – have about nine characteristics in common, not that different from a lot of people we all know. Most of
them exhibit some or all of these. The truth is that we all have the potential for greatness – if we can train
ourselves to keep this in mind as we go about our business day.
1. They don’t
Successful businesspeople don't blame others. Instead of making excuses for bad
outcomes, or reassigning responsibility to others, they take time to learn from their own mistakes and correct them
2. They are
Millionaire-types have a vision. They take quick, decisive action aligned with
that vision. They’re action oriented, always pushing forward toward their goals. Those decisions aren't always the
right ones, but they learn as they go, and get better at it. As they say, fortune favours the brave.
3. They trust their
If something seems like it’s not quite right, they trust that instinct. If an
opportunity excites them and sounds like a great idea, they go for it. And they're not affraid to take corrective
action when needed.
4. They are singly focused on
their CORE business
Successful entrepreneurs may be inspired by ideas, but they always remain true to their vision. They focus on
opportunities that are aligned with their business’s purpose. If you sell retail products on eBay, don’t try real
estate investing the next day. They don’t lose focus. They may sell their products on eBay, write articles, focus
on joint ventures, and go to marketing seminars, but all of their efforts, and FOCUS, help them move toward their
They are marketing focused
Millionaires, including such giants as Bill Gates, understand the importance of building on their core business. They hire people
with specialties in marketing. They work hard at building their email lists, gaining exposure, and are
constantly looking for ways to reaching a wider audience. If you want to build a decent income, you sell
products and services. If you want to be insanely rich, then you create and control markets. The key to your
business, and creating phenomenal success, is marketing.
6. They understand the
importance of continuing education
Successful businesspeople are always learning and drawing from other people’s
experiences. They listen to how other people have achieved their success, especially if these people have expertise
in another industry. They are constantly learning about new approaches and strategies, and thinking about how they
can apply it to their own business.
7. They are not afraid of making
Any big company online will tell you that they’ve had their share of downfalls,
even such giants as eBay or Craig’s List. Mistakes are building blocks for success – by making mistakes, you learn
what works, and what doesn’t. You don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going. We all make mistakes,
and one of the most powerful things you can do is glean feedback from them. Feedback is a great way to learn from
your customers and colleagues. You need to look at feedback and take it with a grain of salt - it helps you learn
and grow. See your mistakes as learning lessons.

8. They model their business for
Internet millionaires model other people, strategies, and systems. They constantly
look for models of success in everyday life and think about how to incorporate these lessons into their own
strategy. They even look at their competition for answers. Whatever niche you're in, subscribe to some industry
newsletters, buy their products, and learn HOW they create success.
9. They build a team to rely
No matter what stage you are in with your business, you’ve got to realize that you
simply cannot do it all. You can’t be an expert in everything. You want to create a great team of people. How can
you find them? Go to seminars and workshops. Hone your networking skills. You’ll often find that like minded people
that are out there constantly learning and attending, seminars and workshops. Getting rich is a team sport. You
have to have people that are cheering you on, encouraging your success.
Internet millionaires in particular build their teams via
outsourcing. Whether you do your outsourcing in India, the Philippines, or in your own town, in this internet
age your team is often as far as your keyboard.
These are some inherent characteristics of business millionaires. Can you apply
them to your business and your life, too? Of course you can. If you can keep these principles in mind, you’ve got
the millionaire mindset. No, you aren’t going to get there overnight. Making a million dollars takes some time. You
can’t make a million dollars if you haven’t made your first hundred. So focus on the first hundred, first thousand,
and first hundred thousand. Thinking this way goes a long way toward your goals – finding success, gaining riches,
and living the kind of life you want to live.
