I understand that for some reason you don't think of yourself as a business person, but you are. You made money at this thing right? There are a couple of things you can do to get this thing up and going, but you will have to begin thinking like a business owner rather than a hobbyist.

 Everybody has insecurities and uncertainties when dealing with this sort of thing, just take it one step at a time. Focus on improving each area before moving onto the next.

What you are going to need at this stage of your business falls into one of six areas:
  • Level of Commitment
  • Your Offering
  • Your Marketing Message
  • Lead Generation
  • Sales
  • Partnerships
In order to get a business moving in the right direction you need to look at the six areas with me. It really is going back and fixing how you think about business fundamentals.

What is You Level of Commitment?

You need to make up your mind regarding your standard. You must decide that you are going to be a workaholic for the next three to five years. This is an undertaking of 12 to 15 hour days for six days a week. If you are not sure than figure it out. One thing to keep in mind is that your life should be different after you make the decision. Your time should be consumed with your business. It's not like you can choose to start a business and continue spending your time hanging out with your buddies or spend time watching TV. Your commitment should be a 'magnificent obsession'. If you can't embrace this type of commitment you are not ready to start a business.
