The internet business community is growing by leaps and bounds. Literally thousands of people every year are walking away from traditional jobs in traditional offices hoping to create financial freedom and a life more flexible. Unfortunately, only a few of these succeed. What is the magic combination that makes for the raging success story that motivates others to follow in their footsteps? Is there a common denominator as to why well intentioned attempters don't succeed?

There are multiple reasons why internet businesses fail. Many people have false expectations about how challenging running an online business can be. Though they like the idea of not having a boss, they are not prepared, or don't know how to step up and be the boss themselves. Others choose businesses that they really don't know anything about. Some people fail despite hard work and a familiar industry because they've chosen to "go it alone" and try to sell goods or services that nobody ever heard of, that lack a current demand. Some fail because, even though they've done everything right, they simply weren't trained in how to successfully operate an internet business.

There's no such thing, however, as wasted effort. Even if the people who made these mistakes regret them, it's a wise student who learns from those that went before. Every tale of success, and every tale of failure, is a classic textbook which every potential entrepreneur should study.

Blazing Trails that Inspire Others to Follow

Within the category of "the winners," many opted to align themselves with a larger company, which had an in-place reputation for providing quality goods and services. Instead of desperately trying to get attention for "new" products, they focused their efforts on goods and services that already had a devoted following. Many of these success stories chose companies that actually offered extensive training to give the best possible chance for success to their Associates. In the end, many of these internet business trailblazers allowed a larger entity to provide the product, the training, and the regular paycheck, while they brought themselves and plenty of hard work and enthusiasm.
