SPI 104: The Dark Side of Online Business, Blogging, and Success

“The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.” – Yoda

Building a successful online business or blog doesn’t happen overnight, but beyond that, it’s not always pretty and positive either.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been doing this for a while, you will always come across some of the negative aspects of being online, and I think it’s important to talk about these things and be real with you about what might be ahead, so you can be better prepared and understand that you’re not alone.

Some of the specific issues I cover have caused many people I know to quit their entrepreneurial endeavors, and I don’t want that to happen to you.

I don’t want the dark side to dominate your destiny.
