The Secret to Making Money Online is...I get emails all the time for online marketers and people who want to get started with making money online and I’m constantly asked… what’s the best way to make money and what advice can you offer?

The real secret to making money online (or really any business) is that you can’t be afraid to fail!

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve failed (yet learned something each time). It’s the successes that matter!

I’ve created hundreds of web sites, ad campaigns, blogs and everything else you can imagine… and the great majority of them have failed… but it’s the winners that keep you going and allow you to find success in your business and getting better at what you do in the process.

It’s very unlikely that you will make money on your first ad campaign or web site that you start. This leads to many people saying “this doesn’t work!” and giving up right away.

Just think about how many successful people there are in the world today and what they have done to become a success.

“I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how many times you failed. You only have to be right once. I tried to sell powdered milk. I was an idiot lots of times, and I learned from them all.” – Mark Cuban

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

Better yet, let’s give some examples!

Take a look at the infographic below and you will be surprised at how many times some of these famous people and products were given the big thumbs down… only to go to another source or back to the drawing board and try again.
