These are the top three reasons for which most people are not taking a chance with the huge opportunities that doing business online provides; the Fear of being scammed, doubts if it will work for them and not willing to invest money.

Well, these were the factors that were killing my dreams. I knew there were legitimate opportunities online but I wasn’t taking the chance because of fear, doubt and money. Thank God I overcame them.

Interestingly, after  a thorough investigation into the life of most online business newbies, I discovered that these three factors are the top reasons why most people fail to get started with their online business.

Don’t you think these are issues you had to deal with or you are still trying to deal with?  Which of the three factors above is standing or stood between you and your dream to earn money online? Well, let me explain these factors a bit more


Most people are failing to take advantage of the numerous income earning streams online because they are afraid.  Most people are not getting started because they are afraid of SCAMS.

Yes! They are afraid of being scammed.  The truth is that online business is the most scammed business opportunity in the world.

Scams have become like scary mask or monsters hovering around online business terrain thereby scaring all kinds of people away.

My questions for you are these; will you allow your fears to always win or will you take a risk, and even if you get scammed in the process, you consider that a lesson?

Well, I am not to decide for you, but I have one advice for you.

This is an advice my father gave me couple of years ago.   My father’s advice to me as a kid was that in any field of business, the number of bad guys involved is an indication of how successful the business will be if you get it right.

Please take my advice and overcome your fears. Fear is an abbreviation. It means false evidence appearing real.    As matter of fact, I have taken the pain to study the operations of the some bad guys and compared them to the good guys.

I have written on how you can identify and avoid scams. Please do visit my Scam Alert page on the menu and learn how you can easily identify scams


The second factor that is keeping people from taking a chance with the several opportunities online is that they doubt if it works.

Some people are so stiff in mind that instead of finding out why something will work, they turn to focus on why it will not work.

You should know that doubt and success are not on the same path. You cannot succeed with a doubtful mind.  One thing I have discovered in life about doubt is that, it is crippling. Doubt kills all the good in you.

If you stick with doubt and keep doubting every opportunity that comes your way, you are most certainly guaranteed of achieving nothing in life.  William Shakespeare put it this way:  “Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt”.

Instead of becoming a doubting Thomas, I suggest you search for the possible benefit that will accrue to you if you start to earn extra money online. Consider the good you are going to enjoy if it works.

List the number of goals that your can achieve with your online income and let these goals drive you on. Put yourself to test. Take the risk, cast your doubt overboard and tell yourself:    I Don’t Know How, But I Believe It will Work For Me.


When I mention money, what I mean exactly is investment.  Some people look at the money they have to part ways with in the process of starting and building their online income business and as result refuse to get started.

Are you allowing money to stop you from making more money? There is a saying in Ghana, specifically among the Akan people that goes like this:  You need fish to catch a fish.

More practically, if you don’t sow any seed how do you expect to harvest something during the harvest season. Online business requires some form of investment. I am not suggesting you pour all your money into something that will not give you returns. What I mean is this:

When you find that good opportunity, spend some money to acquire all the skills, information and tool you need to get to the top. I mean, become an authority.

Buy some books on internet marketing, web marketing, success, motivation and more. Attend some training programs and network with like-minded people. In the process you are not only growing your business, you are developing and shaping yourself into a better product.

It is good to invest in books for they will last you a life time.  You can also opt for the electronic readers like the new kindle eReader to access the eBooks on online business.  It is powerful tool.

I recommend you get one. As long as you want to remain in the online business world of infinite possibilities and keep increasing your income on regularly basis, reading should become your habit.

So, whether it is fear, doubt or money, you have no excuse as these three factors are nothing more than a figment of your imagination. You have nothing to lose giving your passion for online business a chance but you have all to loose not trying.
