How to Become an Internet Entrepreneur in Midlife

Giving practical advice is what we are all about here at Sirius Design Group. We recommend the following to a midlife "beginner internet entrepreneur"

  • Take an interest in technology and emerging trends.
  • Check out micro-niche sites (easier to operate and less competition).
  • Can't find something you want in real life? Try starting an internet business - guaranteed if you can't find it, neither can someone else!
  • Find a good mentor. Be open to learning. Your mentor can be older or younger, but definitely pick one with plenty of experience.
  • Consider buying an existing website or business, smartphone application, Amazon store etc.  We personally recommend websiteclosers.com and we also offer established websites for sale too!
There Is a Lack of Good Mentorship These Days!

It can be a real challenge finding someone worthwhile to receive mentoring from. The Founders of Sirius Design Group quickly blew through over $15,000 in coaching and supposed "mentoring" in a matter of months. Imagine all of that and not learning a thing? Before hiring anyone, we recommend the following to ask and do:

  1. Can you give two keywords you are personally ranking for?
  2. How long have you been doing this for?
  3. Can you provide me with one reference to speak to on the phone? (these days, testimonials can be faked)
  4. Ignore and do not buy books or magazines on the topic. This might seem contradictory to our resources page, but specific books are pretty well outdated by the time they hit the press!
  5. What results can you guarantee if any?
  6. Consider hiring a company with a proven track record of success.
How to Become an Internet Entrepreneur in Midlife - Yes You Can!

Yes you can! No excuses! There is no such thing as "too late" in life. Furthermore, it's only "too late" if you give up. Giving up on yourself, your family, friends and loved ones. A quitter never wins, and a winner never quits. Might sound cliché but it's true.

In fact, the number one stumbling block to success as an Internet Entrepreneur is your own attitude. William, the founder of Sirius truly believes that if you truly want something bad enough in life, it will happen.

Moreover, the only way you could not succeed as an Internet Entrepreneur in midlife, is if you quit.  

You have the Power to make it happen, regardless of your age. You just need the right knowledge and the right opportunity presented to you, coupled with the right attitude

So many people are looking for more out of life, and in today's world, the internet offers that to those willing to look and try!

To your Success,
