Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will your business, so take your time with the details and be sure everything is well oiled to reduce problems later on.  Now, that's an analogy of an actual machine being oiled so the gears don't jam and so it doesn't rust, which is something bad that could happen if you didn't, and working online is the same as a machine.  If you're setting up websites, figuring out your best revenue streams, working on social media pages, hiring influencers, etc. you're working on your machine and I want you to know it will take time.

My first online business didn't profit for 3 years, so get some perspective of how much money you're making now compared to me in the beginning, and that should open your eyes a bit lol.  Yes, I did make money from my business, but I didn't really profit because I was doing it part time as I still had a full-time job working 40+ hours a week.  I was a part-timer online and eventually pulled the trigger to go full time, then I started putting everything together at a very rapid pace and started to miss things like optimizing certain pages or focusing on the revenue streams that were working instead of trying to fix the bad ones.  Fast forward 12 years and I'm still online full time making more money than I did at my day job!  I'm not yet successful in my own mind, but in someone elses, I may be, but I'll get there one day and my profit machine will hopefully be 100% automated Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

You need to come to the realization that the website you're putting up today, tomorrow, or even next week might not be profitable right away and it will take a lot of work to get the sales to start flowing in.  Not many people have instant success with their websites, I hope you do, but don't expect to make $150's right off the bat because it doesn't really happen that way.

Websites aren't perfected in a day
Every good entrepreneur or marketer will tell you their website isn't done because they're always thinking of ways to make it better and make more money.  If you think you're done with a website, you should probably look at your competitors because they aren't showing any signs of stopping, and you shouldn't either.

A website takes time, it's like a child, it needs to be nurtured in order to grow properly and that can't be rushed.  There's no easy button when it comes to websites, so take your time and hope you see success sooner than later.

SEO takes months or years to see success
A lot of new business owners will hear about SEO and understand they need it, but they have unrealistic expectations of how long it actually takes to achieve top rankings, so be patient during this stage because if you're constantly monitoring your rankings you will go crazy when you increase 10 pages and then drop 12 lol Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

Most entrepreneurs have multiple income streams
Not many entrepreneurs out there have just a single income stream, they have a few or even a dozen to profit off of, which means you shouldn't stop yourself at just one website when you think you're successful.  You should definitely push one website at a time, wait for it to be successful, then use those profits to start another project.  Eventually, you'll have multiple websites that are making you a pretty profit and hopefully, by then you'll have a team to manage everything Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

Multiple income streams are a necessity when it comes to online profits, mainly because you never know when one stream is going to dry up and kill your income, so always have multiple streams when possible.

Passive income is difficult to acquire
My ultimate goal is to create multiple passive income streams, these are the ones where I profit without having to do anything at all.  I'll obviously have to monitor the advertising of these streams, which is understandable, but I wouldn't have to do any programming or coding or even talk to people lol Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient  If you've never had a passive income stream, think of it this way:  It's an ATM at your disposal that is loaded with a specific amount of money for you to withdraw each day.  Not all passive streams are equal, some could make $15 a day while others could make $1500, it's all up to you how hard you push yourself to build it to become successful Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

My ideal passive income stream is to invest in a startup that I think has potential and then they go above and beyond my expectations and I get a check each month deposited directly to my bank account Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient  I haven't hit the point where I can start investing like this, but that's my goal in the end because it's easy work.  Yes, investing like that has a high-risk potential, but it's something I've done in the past and was successful with, and I want to get back into it Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

Success will come eventually, as long as you keep pushing
There aren't any successful people out there who are saying "I worked 16 hour days in the beginning and now I make millions without doing anything!" because that's simply not true.  They probably worked 16 hour days in the beginning and pulled back after everything plateaued, but they still work a few hours a day managing everything. 

You can't let a little thing get you down, if it does, you won't see success anytime soon.  Yes, you'll lose some sales and screw up an SEO campaign, but that can't keep you down.  Get the hell up and keep working!  No one is going to hold your hand in the online marketing business, because everyone is likely your competitor, so if you fail it just means they don't have to work as hard lol Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient


In conclusion
Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will your online empire!  Get to work, strive towards success, put in extra hours, stop complaining about what went wrong and fix it.  Eventually, you'll be successful and you can look back on all the things you did to get to the point you're at and laugh.  You may see some of your "methods" were complete garbage and should have never been tested, but it was a learning experience and you're better today because at least you tried Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient  Stop reading this and get to work lol Your profit machine takes time to build, so be patient

Patience is a virtue that need to be learned. Often many people give up because they need quick returns which is not the case. It takes time. It is like when you are downloading anything online; it takes time and one has to be patient.

The issue is that not everyone is willing to be patient and this is one of the reasons some of them end up losing it even when the sound of success is that close to them. I believe that we should always do things that will bring success, but at the same time, there is need to be calm and patient when we desire a particular profit.

In my country and especially in the African rural area, most parents make it a point of duty to name their children especially the female ones Patience and it's all to tell you how much it's worth being patient in anything one does.

Online business requires a lot of patience and if SEO is involved, just make up your mind it's going to take months even if you hire SEO specialist.

Wow, that's an incredible name for a human. It is like a daily reminder for you to be patient.

No offense meant but that’s one peculiar thing in your culture to name a girl Patience. But it makes me recall that I had a classmate whose name is also Patience but in the translated version to Spanish which is Paciencia. However that name is very rare here because they think that it doesn’t sound good. But with the virtue of patience that is what makes us endure the hardships of life.

I agree with you without patience everything you work will be in vain. People should know how to wait with their time, and know how to be patient.

Yes that is really true that patience is a vitreous, a person who don't have much patience in all the thing that he/she do cannot achieve success in life. It is very important to have patience in business because success is very rare to achieve if we don't have such perseverance to wait for the right time.

Yes, patience is a virtue, and I'm really amazed by this article, it makes me think of something to work on as hard as I can to be successful.

I agree with you. Because of the hardships in life the people are experiencing, they want to expect that they can earn a lot in just a short period of time.

That last part which states that success will come at the end as long as we keep pushing is what I like. I have been in business both offline and online and I bet you that it is something that you are really going to enjoy as long as you are doing the things that will bring the success. It takes one to be patient and persistent and at the end of the day, everything will work out fine.

So, to me, there is no big deal in doing the right things that will bring the needed results at the end of the day.

When you look at how most online business works, it's the scams ones that promises quick money and profits but which all ends up making you lose money on both short term and long term basis.

So, ensuring to make use of the right channels to make money even it's going to take a while is better than seeking a short cut.

yes, it is true. Now a days people are too eager to have a big name, that they try to rush things out, without even thinking clearly. People need to be patient when it comes to business, especially if you are just starting.

If you have no patience when it comes to working online and earning as a webmaster, then it's better to not get into the business at all because you won't have the endurance to wait till the money starts coming.

It's certainly a line of work that does demand a lot of patience. Having to be patient and resilient, and know that success isn't immediate can be a tough thing for many of us - in this day and age with so many things we get instant gratification. Knowing that waiting it out is part of this industry can be too much for some people to bear, I think!

I really agree with you. People with no patience should know beforehand that working online is not their place. But, if they really want to achieve success in this field, then, knowing the right things to do is a must.

I love that you share personal stories. Knowing that it took you three years to turn a profit in your business is very reassuring for those of us still slogging away, trying to create a profitable business ourselves. I think patience, determination and resilience are all important when trying to create a profitable business from scratch - it's a good reminder that I've just got to stick with it.

The biggest problem I'm having here on SEOLads.com is how traffic flows. In the last couple of months I've had 15 orders and money was booming, now nothing. So seems it just depends on time? Just seems off and on.

That happens in almost every site. At times the flow of work is higher, while other times it is a struggle getting a single order.

I like how you compare the online business to a machine. I must agree that success doesn't visit you overnight. It would take a lot of patience, resources, hardwork and etc. for you to get to the position that you want. Hang in there, don't give up and everything will fall to the right places someday.

Dicipline in yourself is the real virtue here. No can compete on this virtue but before having this dicipline is first to start to change your routine or method in such a waste of time and effort.

I date my online journey to have begun in 2007. My online work started yielding monetary results in 2017.
Just think. Suppose I had run out of patience up in 2016.

It looks like you are saying it takes about four years before you see the fruits of your labours? This is good to know as I think many would give up after about a year or so thinking the project had failed. It makes me think I need to revive and keep on at some projects I had going in the past. Thank you. The trouble is we are a fast food and fast results society so patience is no longer a quality most of us possess.

yes, I agree as well, we all think of quick results and how we will gain what we have been dreaming of in two days by the least effort. It does not work like that in reality and this is why a majority of us get disappointed and nearly give up.

Patience applies in offline and online business. There is no business that will pick immediately it is launched. It is good to remember that it takes time to create some connection with your customers.

Also, patience is among the virtues that all billionaires will include in their stories. Success is a journey, and it takes time. Additionally, easy come, easy go.

Reading this post and some of the comments here inspire me to work even harder. I've always desired to earn some passive income on the net. Initially I'm not aiming for a lot of money just as long as after I've done the work, I'll be paid for it over and over and . . .

I'll need to learn to patient and persistent though. Without them it will be impossible to achieve my goal.

The easy answer is as it takes time to get your business off the ground. Consider an aircraft, it burns greater gas in the course of take off and at the same time as climbing, however as soon as it reaches its preferred altitude the aircraft will become greater efficient and burn much less gas. So it's far all about patient and how committed we're to attain our goal.

Most people are looking for get rich quick schemes, which is why the people who are selling get rich quick schemes are the only ones getting rich quick! Boy, that’s a convoluted sentence.

Anyway, the truth is that it really does take a lot of patience and diligence when you go on any sort of entrepreneurial endeavor. Anyone can go apply to a basic job, but that’s why they’ll also be making a basic income for the rest of their lives. Being an entrepreneur means being patient, biting the bullet and working for some really poor money at first (if any at all), but being diligent enough for it to pay off in the future.

Perseverance and resiliency is what sets apart from people who have successful online businesses to those who are failures. The majority of people easily give up their dreams when they first encounter set backs. Failing is painful. Most people wanted to avoid pain. It's what hold back people from trying again.

Definitely. As with every kind of business, locating a actual need in your area of interest is key. What trouble or problem are you able to help to solve? Does your services or products actually solve that trouble? If not, what are you able to do to make that occur?

I really agree that passive income is difficult to acquire especially if we don't have much skills, I had been finding some ways to have a passive income but still I end up hanging since I was not able to find any sites that could help me to have a passive income without doing anything. I just realized that it is really tough to have it but I will not give up since I am still optimistic that I can make it someday.

Having passive income requires a lot of hard work at first. You can achieve passive income through investment or creating a business either offline or online. Once your business is stable, you'll enjoy the benefits of working less and wait for income to flow in.

I agree it takes a lot of time to be profitable. And if it is service based business then it takes more years than the manufacturing or the product based business. I can tell you that getting into profit in first few years takes longer. So being patient while the things are getting into profit is how it needs to be viewed. I think profit machine requires people, process and also need to be regularly sold over things. That's how the profit can be stayed in consistent ways.

That is very true, success will come eventually and one has to be very patient until he is able to achieve it. If we become impatient then it is very likely that we will lose all our focus and eventually give up on our endeavor. If we try our best to remain focused in our attempts then we will eventually start seeing some success. It is always better to increase our options of earning in the online business, instead of relying on a single source. If one has multiple sources of income generated over time then it will definitely increase our risk-bearing capacity for bigger projects in the future.

I really believe in the last line that say success will come eventually as long as you keep pushing which is really true because we cannot achieve success in an over night we need to spent a lot of hours and keep working since the world never stop innovating. We must go with the flow and be hard working at all times. We cannot achieve our goals if we don't have the patience and attitude to work hard.

Patience is a virtue that freelancers should acquire because life in the internet is sometimes dynamic and sometimes dull when it comes to the time element. For earning money, you cannot last long in the internet when you have no patience. For a website to earn a substantial income regularly, the most common means is the SEO method that you can do but it has no certainty as to the time of effect so you should not lose heart when it seems that what you are doing is not effective.

I agree. Working online is full of uncertainty. You should learn how to compromise with its conditions. Earning money is not easy as 1 2 3, you should work hard for it. Also, losing faith will never bring success to those people who thought of earning money online as their source of income.

The first one is SO true. Even when your website is completed - you're still never content with it and always looking for ways to improve upon things.

I couldn't agree more. Success will never come overnight, one must strive hard and work hard for it. Success will require time for you to wait and effort for you to gain. Just always remember that good things come to those who wait. Every hardship that a person is experiencing now will have their own reward that they deserve after sacrificing to be able to reach their goal.

Aside from the money and time you invest in to your business, another one is patience. It takes a lot of sacrifice when building a business. And I agree with you, it does not take one day to build the empire Of Rome. This is also the same with putting up a business. You have to considers a lot of factors and how are you going to deal with it. You have lot of competitors that you need to compete with them.
