Many MLM’s and online entrepreneur opportunities will sometimes discourage getting a “traditional” education. These entities feel that one spends so much money on an education and often has nothing to show for it. I understand why one may feel this way, because this can happen. However, I believe with motivation and truly doing your research in the career you are getting into, you can be successful, and pursue great income online too.
Mistakes Many College Students Make
OK so let’s be honest here, we go to college because we want to better ourselves and gain knowledge to attain a career that we will be successful in and to make good money. However, when we go after a career that we think will make us wealthy, we can oftentimes go for something we don’t really enjoy. We may feel that if we go for a degree in Accounting, or Medicine, or as a lawyer, then we will be learning something that will make us very successful. Where this may be true, if this is not really where one’s interest lies, then they are not going to find true success because they are sacrificing what may really be their calling, for something they believe will make them successful.
When one forces themselves to study in a subject that they really have no interest in, it will often lead to failure. Therefore, finding something you are passionate about is always the better alternative. Perhaps you are interested in the arts, or music, or entertainment – but someone along the way told you that you wouldn’t be successful or that it’s too competitive and impossible to make any “real money” in. Well this is when your adulthood starts – you have to be strong enough to stick with your convictions and go with what you know is in your heart.
Where Online Success Fits In
As previously mentioned, finding a subject that you are passionate about, is key to your success. This also is true when you are beginning a business online. It has been shown that to create true success online, a key factor is to have your own website. With this website you write and create blogs and articles and you input videos within it. Now let’s envision that you have earned a degree in a subject that you are very passionate about and you have obtained a wealth of information on. You are great at this career, because it is something that you love so much you live and breathe it. In fact, you love it so much, that you want to help others that have shown interest in this same career, how incredible it is.
Yup, you guessed it! This is where the online business and website come in. You have created your website and now ready to start writing your blogs – well you have a fortune of subjects to write about – your knowledge on your career and your education. You can create videos showing examples of your path to success in your career, and what steps helped you get there. Before you know it you will have a following, because you are writing, creating videos and talking about an area you have expertise in. People will want to hear and read what you have to say because you will become an authority on it, because you have first-hand knowledge on the subject!
This is how many people on the internet have been able to create such success, because many have received an education in the subject, they have become an authority in. It is having this educated knowledge on a career or a business idea (which can be in any subject!) that has made these individuals able to create successful online businesses.
Some Examples to Think About
An example of success in both an educated career and intertwining it with success on the internet is someone who may have studied different biology and chemistry and received a career in medicine. Having this knowledge may bring them to research different medicines on the market and investigate vitamins and materials claiming to assist ailments and diseases.
For instance, CBD oils is huge on the market right now. Having a background in medicine, biology and chemistry will give someone a more professional approach in researching how effective CBD is on the body. By having their own website and writing blogs and creating videos on their website will build an audience, where they not only share their knowledge, but also make suggestions of safe products’ out there that are worth the money and are successful – as well as write reviews on products’ they do not recommend due to safety issues, and by having a background in the subject and adding their expertise, they will build a trust with their audience.
When one does write a review on a product and offers their suggestion, through giving examples and their expertise on the subject matter, of a product they recommend, they can use a link to direct their readers to that product and to that products’ website (if one has been created) or to a website that sells that product and receive a commission; this process is affiliate marketing.
Maybe you received an education to be an educator; and you want to help others receive a good education and you are affiliate with an online school or to an online site for a school. You have created your website and first you write about your experience as an educator and all the benefits of it and find and build an audience that is passionate about education. Showing examples through videos and writing blogs with rich and valuable content, you show that you are an authority and you have expertise on the subject – it may even be in a subject like, Math. The point is you build that trust with your audience and their respect – so when you suggest a school or an online school, your followers are more likely to take your advice.
You can receive an education on ANY subject, create a website and write and make videos with great content to gain a following of individuals interested in that same subject. The important fact, is that it be in something you love, and you feel passionate about. Readers and viewers will be able to perceive this and will respect and want to listen to you, because they know you are genuine.
Be Educated at School and Online
While at school you are being educated on all different subjects, viewpoints and standards. These same processes can also be learned online. While learning and beginning your career study in school, also do your research online. I mean this in a couple ways; One is by continuing to research on your subject online, this way you will be up to date with any new trends in that career and how you can excel within that career. Second is by researching how people become successful online – what trends do they seem to follow – do they follow a system that educates and constantly trains on the new nuances online for success. Learn about different terms, like affiliate marketing, and pay per click, and email autoresponders, etc.
Keep current with both, your schooling education, and what you need to be successful online. Be wary of anything that sounds too good to be true online and makes promises that sound impossible, “You can make $1000 in one hour, if you follow this simple system!” If it sounds too good to be true or fishy, then it most likely is – and avoid it like the plague. However, explore different things, and if there are programs that offer a free trial or have a free starter membership, look at it and see if it fits into the path you are headed in. Remember this is your career and your decision, so NEVER feel forced or enticed into choosing something you don’t feel comfortable with.
Some characteristics to investigate when searching for good online programs to be affiliated with is – do they have a community of professionals that offer their assistance to you? Is there continuous training and is it explained in a way that both beginners and experts can comprehend? Is it affordable to fit into your budget? Do they give you an opportunity to check everything out free to see the value before you purchase anything?

Stick with Your Education and Become a Success Online
I would like to reiterate that receiving an education is an asset in whatever you decide to do in life; and if you are given the chance to receive an education – take it! In whatever you get a degree in, use it to your advantage, show your expertise and become an authority on that subject. Write research papers on it and turn that into an article/blog for your website. If you can show demonstrations on a video, then post that on your website and on YouTube.
Here’s an example:
Remember we are all remarkable and unique and we all have something to bring to the table. Take your uniqueness and your education and create success for yourself and establish yourself online and success will come your way!
