Persistence is the Key

Written by George Manty  · February 9, 2006

Last night a reader asked me several questions about blogging and what it takes to make money from it. He also asked me:

“How long til you retire. Would it take 10k a month for a while and then stop. Or would you wait until you have retirement type money where you could retire doing this?”

Here is an excerpt from my response:

I don’t know that I would retire. I might hire other people to do most of the work, but I would enjoy the steady income stream. There are lots of ways to make money on the net. The one thing I can tell from reading lots of peoples stories is that it takes hard work, smart work (learning from people who have done it), persisitence, and time (for most people two years or more, for some only one year).

I read a story about successful business people and the one thing they all had in common was persistence. They failed and failed again, until eventually they got it right and made a huge success. For believers I think there is another important part, giving your business to God and remembering that everything we get is from God. I think God will reward that. At least, that is what it looks like to me.

What’s interesting is that before posting this, I decided to go see what Darren Rowse had posted for the day (Darren’s blog is becoming a daily read for me) and found this post. From reading his post, you can see that he works HARD!

While I think you can make good money with less effort, I believe that for the most part it does take a lot of work (at least up front work) to make money in any business venture. One way to alleviate the amount of work is to have other people do it for your, but it still takes time and effort to succeed.

Like I told my reader, “hard work, smart work, persistence and time are what you need to succeed.”

    BTW - I was aware at the time I wrote my response that the person who asked me this was a believer in God.

    xperts say that you can make money online only doing hard-work and if not hard-work than rather smart work. I believe in combining both to get the best result

    I enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks for your inspirational thoughts. I just remembered a quotation on Persistence from Dale Carnegie. Here it is:

    Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
