Is it too late to get into business?

Hello guys,

I saw this question which was asked by a user of the WALL. He was wondering if it was too late to get into this e-commerce business. This fear of being late in starting a business isn’t an isolated feeling, a lot of people often face this same fear. When that little voice in your head goes into overdrive and starts asking; what if I’m too late? Isn’t this business for younger people? There is already huge competition; the market is saturated… blah, blah, blah…

This type of fear of being late arises from the fear of competition or the fear of being too old to venture into business.  When we look at entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg, it appears that in today’s world, it is only the young entrepreneurs that are celebrated and recognized, this can be very discouraging. Cheer up! 🙂 I’m here to tell you that age doesn’t determine the success of your business. Research has shown that people over 55 years are twice likely to succeed in business than their counterparts who are under 35. Age comes with a ton of valuable experiences in life which would be useful to your business both directly and indirectly.  The great Roman leader Julius Caesar once said, “Experience teaches all things.” So, if age is what is bothering you, dust your boots and head right into the game, it is time to get started, the odds are in your FAVOUR!

Next up is the fear of competition; in one of my post, I talked about how competition can be used as a tool for success. The way you can beat the fear of competition is to change the way you see competition; your perception here matters a lot. Do you see competition as an opportunity? Or do you see it as an enemy? Your answer would determine your disposition towards competition; whether it will be a tool for success or something to be feared. One thing to note is you shouldn’t obsess over competition; you will end up giving away your power, energy, and creativity over to things you cannot control. This would only lead to unnecessary distractions and stunted growth, the bottom line is; you won’t achieve much with this mindset.

Over at http://sellslikehotcakes.co/videos.php, our video courses will teach you how to approach competition from a position of strength and not weakness; you will be exposed to tools and hacks on how you can monitor your competition, learn what they’re doing right and avoid their mistakes.

You mustn’t allow anything to stop you from starting today. Don’t let that little voice in your head crush you before you even begin. SUCCESS is RIPE for the taking! There is no time like NOW

P.S: I will tackle his second question on how to find the right product in a future post.

So stay tuned!

Agreed. dont pay $150 to some shady guys. you should do it yourself and become your own expert. 1/2 the people that claim to know don't. You know your product better than anyone else. Dont be lazy! USe the tools provided and dont look for magic pills!

Hey guys, thanks for the great course! Dont know how to say, but I have a strong thinking within myself, that it is too late to start. I know that this will probably be only a belief. Any ideas for helping me with this issue?
I am also looking for products but it's really hard to find something with the criterias the course is telling me.
What about you guys? Are you thinking similar or I am the only one here? :)

Claudia says at 22:51 et
hi Jan and welcome. "is it too late" is the common fear of everyone that is getting started. What you really fear is "is it too much competition? what if my product does not fit all the criteria"? The truth is, there will be never an ideal product that fits ALL criteria. Criteria is an indication for you in which direction to look, but it does not mean that you must find ideal product that fits ALL criterias at the same time. This will never be the case.

This year is amazing time to start ecommerce, because so many new tools are developed and released and with new amazon review policies it's getting harder for low quality sellers just to buy tons of 5 star reviews and flood the market like it was last year. So i think it's getting even easier for people to stand out when most of those low quality sellers are banned for incentivize reviewes.

The great place to start looking for ideas is "Niche finder tool". http://sellslikehotcakes.co/niche_finder.php for example who know that baby towels or corner flags might be a great idea to sell? This will give you great ideas on how to find a product!
