Even though you may feel that dancing and online business are two, completely different worlds, there are surprising similarities between those two.
I figured out these points when I participated to some dance lessons with my wife some time ago.
You need someone to teach you
When you get started in online world, you are pretty much clueless what to do. There are so many things to learn – yet you are not sure which way to choose. However, as soon as you have someone to guide you (teacher / mentor), you get clarity to your actions and you start to progress much faster.
The same thing it is with dancing. You can try to watch how others dance, even try to do it by yourself, but as soon as you have someone to teach you, things get much easier. You are able to grasp the concepts much faster than trying to do everything by yourself.
You need to focus to get the results
When running an online business, the focus is very important part of it. You need to work the focused way in order to finish what you have started and to reach the goals you have set. You just can not do million things at the same time and still expect to get everything done. You need to focus on what you do.
The same it is with dancing. As soon as your mind starts to wander, you are going to lose your steps. However, when you keep you focus on the dancing, things get much easier.
You can not do everything by yourself
I must say at first that many people are running their online businesses by themselves. However, in many cases you see entrepreneurs partnering together.
The reason is quite obvious. You are able to grow your business faster with a partner than doing it by yourself. Also, whereas you have your own strengths, your business partner may have strengths of his / her own that will complement your business.
You have to ask for help
We get stuck every once in a while and need some help to move on. For example, although our dance teachers showed us the moves many times over, we still had to ask for help so that we could figure out some steps.
Even though you may be running your business by yourself, there are times when you need some help. Whenever this kind of situation occurs, you have to be willing to ask for a help to move forward. You can do this by asking your business coach or going to forums or blogs in your market, to meet other people, who may have experienced the same issues than you.
