I recently had a revelation. It's easy for me to spend a large chunk of my day reading forums and learning thngs but never applying the things I do learn. Massive action is my new mantra. Sometimes stepping out on your own is scary. I avoid failure like the plague. In doing so, I'm avoiding success! This is basic psychology at its finest.
One forum in particular is driving me insane. Warrior Forum is an awesome community, but if you're new to internet marketing, the forum can be a distraction. My advice is to dedicate some time visiting the forum before you begin your business pursuit to get it out of your system. Then, if you're addicted to the forum like I am, devote one day a week to sifting through all the information. You'll be busy for a few hours!
