Yes I've heard all those fancy quotes that are used to motivate people to keep working — winners never quit, quitters never win and others. But at times no matter how long and hard you work, success will still elude you. It takes time before businesses start making money. And online ventures tend to take slightly longer before the business owner starts making any money from them. It typically takes 6-12 months to break even. Many people however aren't patient enough to wait that long. Supposing within a year your online business hasn't made you any money and the positive signs aren't on the horizon yet should you keep going, hoping for the best or let go before you lose more of your money?
