Revealing My 4 Personal Secrets to Real Online Success

Over the last 10 years I have had a part-time online business in addition to my corporate job of 22 years in the real estate lending industry, primarily to create a second income for my retirement.

During the time I spent in my “corporate” job, the company I worked for sent me to all of their marketing schools and other programs to teach me to interact with others face to face. Recently, though, social media has opened the door to so many more people than knocking on doors ever could.

Naturally I began to gravitate towards online marketing, and joined a company that molded my marketing abilities with their real life expertise. This has helped me pinpoint my ‘secrets’ to real success for my online business.

Here are my 4 secrets to real online business success:


When beginning any venture – whether online or offline – clarity is important. What do you want to accomplish? How are you going to do it? These are the questions you need to answer when considering your business venture.

“Clarity” is akin to laying out a business plan. Before you begin to move forward, first you have to lay the groundwork. If you don’t plan, you’ll oftentimes find yourself flying blind, so to speak, which can lead to mountains of trouble for you down the road. You can avoid a lot of problems with a simple, clear plan.


If your business is going to succeed, you need to get to the root of why you’re doing what you’re doing, or “find your why.” I find that my passion and purpose is helping others to succeed. Why? Because I’ve found that if I focus on helping my team succeed, it will lead to wealth and prosperity for the entire group.

When you ‘find your why’ you will be able to take action with a sense of purpose, keeping you on your path towards success.


Now that you have gotten to the root of the reason you’re doing what you’re doing, it’s time to figure out what, when, and how you will accomplish the things to lead you towards your end goal of personal success. This is the real meat and potatoes of the 4 secrets to business success. This is the step where you really begin to flesh out your plans.

Since you have identified the purpose behind what you’re doing, now you need to figure out how to get from point A to point B. Set your goals and milestones, create a timeline for your tasks, and get ready to roll.

Work Pattern

After you’ve made a clear plan, found your purpose, and identified your intentions, it’s time to act. The last secret to success – which is more of an open secret – is an unwavering commitment to taking actions that are profitable for you, your team, and that meet your intentions and purposes.

When you make clear choices – and continue to make clear choices – that are in line with your ultimate goals for success, the only obstacle between you and your goals is time. Hard work pays off, and success is just around the corner.
