Is Your Online Business Living the American Dream
THE AMERICAN DREAM
In accordance with Wikipedia, the American Dream can be stated as follows:
The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work.
Outside of someone else’s definition, what does the American Dream mean to you? Everyone has there take on what this means to them but maybe, the definition is the same but the relation to “the Dream” changes the reality from one person to the next.
Andrew Carnegie came to America with the shirt on his back and a handful of coins in his pocket at a tender young age. When he sold the Steel Empire he built, he was the riches man in the World (at the time). He could not understand how there were so many people in the land of opportunity that were so broke when opportunity was limitless.
IS YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM
At this point, you have to ask yourself if your desire to succeed with your online business is also a desire to partake in the American Dream. For most people, the assumption that they will not achieve the American Dream through the course of working at a job, is indeed a reality. Therefore, they see this achievement a possibility with their online business.
What does an online business mean to you? Does your online business define you? To drive this to the core, you have to answer this question: WHO ARE YOU. In another article (Online Business- Who Are You) I refer you to this entry:
Your Online Business is Your Signature and everything else pales in comparison. If you are not a person of Integrity, you will be found out. However, most people do not get into an online business with the intent to take advantage of others. At the same time, they also neglect to build a reputation for themselves. (Branding themselves)
It does not matter if your business in online or a store front business on Main Street, WHO ARE YOU will prevail.
