Why MOST People Never Find The Success They’re Looking For Online

If you’ve ever found yourself feeling like a loser, buying internet marketing courses you KNOW you don’t really need, spinning your wheels feeling like “if only I could figure out ________” then today’s video is exactly what you need.

Over the past six years, I’ve coached hundreds of people on how to build their business online. And I’ve noticed a very familiar problem.

Thanks for your candor. I agree. It is easier allow distractions to overshadow the reason people go online in the first place. Great video. As Zig Ziglar once said another way:
“The difference between a wandering generality and a meaningful specific”
Keep singing your song, Jenn! On key and on target!

Awww… thanks Jay. Always great to hear from you!

Hey Jenn,

Great video! I think that quite a lot of people looking to start out online can get overwhelmed by the technical stuff. This is probably because the majority of marketing courses are aimed at the more seasoned or technical marketer. Words like affiliate and niche can totally go over a beginners head. I’m a bit opposite to that and it’s probably a bit of an Achilles heel of mine, because I do tend to spend more time on the physical aspect of something. However what I think is most important about working online is clarity of mind / goal and dedication. Yes, thank you for another awesome video!

Kind regards,

Claire :)

Your welcome Claire :)

Amen! No doubt. I 110% agree.

This is EXACTLY what held me back. It’s only been in the last -literally- few months that I’ve begun to find my voice, the one I know that I want to project into the world.

Well said, and well done Jenn.


Jenn August 14, 2012 at 7:20 am

Hey Eric,

So great to hear that you’ve found your voice! I know this is something you’ve been working on “finding” for a while. I’ll look forward to seeing what new stuff you’re coming up with…



Greg Reed August 14, 2012 at 3:50 am

Amen Jenn. Not a truer set of words said. You nailed it!


Jenn August 14, 2012 at 7:20 am

Thanks Greg.

Hi Jenn,

I’m very glad to see you back in your new studio! It’s very professional and fancy! You’re right. I’ve stopped buying courses. I’ve realized that most of the time, I don’t even have the time to use them. It’s a belief I had built that I needed to have cutting edge information to have more success online. I realize that consistency is a big deal. Now, I’m getting the best ride of my life in network marketing and I’m having more fun than ever meeting and hanging out with people. That’s truely what makes me happy and my business grows even more that way.

Thank you for all your good work,


Jenn August 14, 2012 at 7:21 am

Right on Millie! I’ve been in the same place—thinking I need all the cutting edge information and then not having the time to even go through the products. Jenn

Great video Jenn. I always enjoy your messages. This one hit particularly close to home. I have been struggling for some time. I have been trying Facebook ads, with no results. I always feel like there is something missing that I am not getting. I am very clear on why I am online, I just feel I don’t have enough clout to be taken seriously. For now I am promoting other people’s products always with the same goal in mind. I know I have to keep trying and I will have the success I know is there.
Thank you for the video.


Jenn August 14, 2012 at 8:03 am

Your welcome Elaine – and if you ever want me to take a peek at your marketing, come on over to the TMA Facebook page and post your sales funnel there, and I’ll give you my feedback. Hang in there and keep persevering! xox Jenn


Joe August 16, 2012 at 6:46 am

I keep plugging away at my marketing, I have a focus, mission and product, but am still struggling. So I cannot agree with you on this. I certainly believe in focusing and having a purpose or mission, along with putting a lot of work and effort. However I do not understand how having a goal or mission will substitute for the right tools and actions.


Jenn August 16, 2012 at 8:09 am

Hey Joe,

I appreciate where you’re coming from. My questions for you would be: (1) how long have you been “plugging away at your marketing”? (2) do you communicate with your target audience/refine your marketing based on a thorough understanding of where your target market is at? and (3) are you looking at your marketing metrics and testing/refining from there?

I’m not saying that a mission will substitute for the right tools and actions, just that a strong conviction in your purpose will keep you going, focused long enough that you will do what it takes to create success.. or decide the effort is not profitable.

If you want specific assistance, feel free to ask questions over on the TMA Facebook page:



Clifton Quinn August 29, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Very well said Jenn, and I agree with you probably 95%. For “some”, they have the conviction, but not the skills. For me, I agree with you completely, as I have been in a holding pattern while looking for the right product, company, people, timing, etc…. But YES, once you start, without full conviction, it just doesn’t work. People can read our vibrations, and we need conviction. The tools can all be learned, at least as much as needed, AFTER we get that belief.
