Figuring out how to blog like an entrepreneur is different than figuring out how to blog.

 

Business people are different than bloggers. Bloggers just blog. Entrepreneurs think like business owners. Blogging is different than owning and running a business.

 

Successful entrepreneurs who blog sell a dream that inspires and uplifts…..like…..

 

A fine mist kisses my face in a sleepy cloud forest town.

 

I am typing these words from El Valle de Anton in Panama.

 

My day: I woke up, did some cardio and worked while enjoying stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valley.

 

Now I write this post as a cool mountain breeze keeps me relaxed.

 

Life is fun, freeing and quite peaceful. But it was not always this way. I used to just blog. Thinking like a blogger worked OK for simply writing and publishing blog posts. However, building an actual online business is quite different than just writing and publishing blog posts. I had to develop the skill of being an entrepreneur to make any type of progress on the business front.

 

This post will help you blog like a thriving entrepreneur.

 

How to Blog Like an Entrepreneur

 

Blog like a business person. Share value. Monetize effectively. Profit. Go full time. Circle the globe. Or blog in your home town. Doesn’t that sound sweet?

 

Think like a business person who blogs. Be an entrepreneur first. Blog, second. Keep that 1-2 step in mind to blog successfully.

 

1: Blog Success

 

Blog success by:

 

  • learning from successful bloggers
  • surrounding yourself with successful bloggers
  • investing in successful blogger courses and eBooks

 

Focus on success. Success grows. Successful entrepreneurs are the by-product of blogging success.

 

Lodtunduh, Bali.

 

Bloggers who build profitable ventures turn a profit by teaching people how to succeed in their niche. Avoid appealing to failure-fear by obsessing over pain points, suffering and struggle because where your energy goes, grows.  Blog success. Tune into a higher energy. Allow success to grow in your being.

 

Blogging success is an inside-out endeavor. Strengthen your mind. Go within often. Feeling successful leads to blogging successfully.

 

2: Think and Act Like an Entrepreneur Who Blogs

 

Do you notice how I mention my online course frequently? I run a business. I promote the business. Clear entrepreneurs promote their businesses freely.

 

You are an entrepreneur who happens to blog. Be that person. Open income streams. Freely promote your products and services. See yourself making money through those products and services. Visualize business success. Own your online business in mind first. Think and act like an entrepreneur who blogs.

 

Surround yourself with entrepreneurs. Learn from people who think like business owners. Thinking, feeling and acting like a business owner feels quite different than thinking, feeling and acting like an employee. During my employee days I worked 5 days a week to get a paycheck on Thursday. I spent Saturday and Sunday lazing, hanging out and chilling. As an entrepreneur who blogs, I work 7 days a week. I type these words at 9:35 PM on a Saturday, yet, I am sitting in a stunning cloud forest within the crater of a volcano in Panama. I cannot say I was sitting in a similar location on Saturday nights when I was an employee.

 

3: Invest Money in Blogging Resources

 

Do as successful entrepreneurs do by paying for their most intimate, in-depth, specialized knowledge. Full time bloggers know it pays to pay for specialized knowledge. Automatic. Success seekers do not even think about it.

 

Investing money in resources is the quickest blogging short cut imaginable. You have fun, help people and prosper by buying specifically what works. Learn what works. Put it into action. Succeed.

 

Business owners hire coaches and invest in resources to amplify their success. Entrepreneurs have only so much time to make mistakes. Investing in premium resources and hiring coaches helps you save time and energy because you’ll move into successful action frequently while rarely making errors, following the advice of successful entrepreneurs.

 

4: Manage Your Energy

 

Manage your energy. Vibe high. Succeed.

 

Entrepreneurs should work/play from love-fun to leave fear-survival-mode, to succeed more quickly and to inspire success-seeking entrepreneurs who blog.

 

Ke Bang National Park, Vietnam

 

I prefer:

 

  • deep yin yoga
  • exercise
  • ample sleep

 

to raise my vibe. But the techniques do not matter. Raising your vibe matters. Be what works for you. Or do what works for you. Keep your focus on your dreams, your fun and your future or current success to raise your vibe higher and higher.

 

The higher you vibe the more you think like an owner, a business person, someone who offers immense value and receives value in the form of money. Strengthening your mind cultivates your abundance consciousness which helps you act like a prospering business owner.

 

5: Create and Connect

 

My day is simple; I create helpful content, and I connect with fellow bloggers by promoting them and by commenting on their blogs.

 

As my creations and connections bleed a loving, success-filled, chill energy, my entrepreneurial success expands.

 

Simple. Really simple, guys. Keep creating helpful content that inspires your readers. Keep connecting with successful bloggers in your niche. Observe your success expand.

 

Creating and connecting is vital to building a prospering business through your blog. Creating helpful, problem-solving content earns you credibility in the eyes of your readers. Building connections with successful bloggers gives you greater exposure and also adds a passive element to your blogging campaign. Smart entrepreneurs run businesses that yield passive profits; unwise entrepreneurs allow their businesses to run them, needing to basically trade time for money, even though they allegedly own a business.

 

6: Monetize

 

Monetize your blog. Run a business. Be an entrepreneur.

 

Income streams matter not. People buy into you and your success; eBook and course purchases are a mere formality.

 

Some ideas:

 

  • create online courses
  • write eBooks
  • offer coaching services
  • Google Adsense

 

Get clear on your income streams by promoting your offerings freely. Profit.

 

Repeat to self: entrepreneurs who blog eventually profit. Business owners need to open multiple streams of income to actually prosper through these channels. Feel free to open as many income streams as possible. Be generous with yourself. If you are generous with your readers you may as well be generous with yourself by opening passive income channels to run a thriving blogging business.

 

7: Look Forward to Bumps; Bumps Push You Higher

 

Successful entrepreneurs who blog know bumps in the road lift you higher every time you hit a bump.  If you focus on success and help people and sell your dream, the ride will be mostly smooth.  Little bumps shake out fears and as you become more fearless you succeed even more.

 

Blogging like a successful entrepreneur means making a trampoline out of the inevitable dips every blogger faces. Any experienced blogger knows the down times seem to arrive early and often during newbie blogger days. Prospering entrepreneurs frame obstacles as stepping stones; every moment of resistance positions you to step up the ladder of success.

 

Stop complaining about blogging obstacles. Learn from these tough situations to to develop a key quality of every successful entrepreneur: being fully flexible when times get tough.

 

8: Rest

 

Rest. Recharge. Think clearly. Align with success.

 

Cusco, Peru.

 

Well-rested entrepreneurs emit a success-filled, inspired, peaceful, irresistible energy. Blogging is an energy game. Rest to vibe higher.

 

I get 7-9 hours of sleep nightly. Plus naps. Even if I do not sleep for 8 hours I stay in bed for 8 hours.

 

Resting is important because entrepreneurs need to:

 

  • feel refreshed each morning
  • be recharged each morning
  • think clearly in order to effectively plan and work their blogging day

 

Get as much rest as possible if you work a full time job while blogging part time. Well-rested entrepreneurs tend to outpace everyone else because they see clearly and blog from a stable, prospering energy.

 

9: Sell Your Dream

 

Whether you live your dream or plan to live your dream, selling your dream is a next level tip successful bloggers teach.

 

Entrepreneurs offer you a solution. Entrepreneurs offer you a better way. Entrepreneurs empower customers but the smart ones share their dream too.

 

Imagine how it feels to be gazing at a dove as mist kisses your face in a serene forest town? Welcome to my experience now.

Awesome feeling, right?

 

New Entrepreneurs Who Blog

 

Share your dreams. People want to be on board with something special. Inspire yourself by solidifying your vision. Inspire success by giving your energy to success. Share your dreams regularly and help folks in your niche through your creations.

 

10: Leverage

 

Example; this blog post.

 

I:

 

  • help bloggers with this content
  • sell my blogging audio course
  • build my brand
  • drive search traffic by optimizing the post for SEO
  • share effectively on Facebook by tailoring the update
  • share effectively on Twitter by tailoring the update

 

Successful entrepreneurs leverage to reach a maximum number of folks and grow a maximum amount of business with each action.

 

Blog like a successful entrepreneur by mastering the concept of leveraging.

 

Wrap Up

 

Think like a business person. Do not think solely like a blogger.

 

Bloggers just blog and never make much of an impact.

 

Blogging like a successful entrepreneur means thinking like a business owner as you work your blogging campaign.

 

Go pro by thinking like someone who runs a blogging business.

    Hi Ryan,

    Glad to be here after a long time. When you are blogging as an entrepreneur you need to follow many things that you mentioned in the post. Actually, when we motivate ourselves as a blogging entrepreneur, we tend to create more passive income opportunities from it, like you e-books.

    Hoping to come back again for more updates in future. Have a great time blogging and networking with fellow bloggers.

    Once again thanks for the great share.

    Hi Ryan,
    wonderful tips here.
    It took me a while to figure out that investing in blogging is just that, investing into something that will bring me a 100-fold returns down the line.
    I’ve learned my lesson and now pretty much buy anything that I think will help me accelerate success.
    Thanks!

      Hi Nikola,

      It is absolutely incredible how investing money in proven resources, time and energy in doing simple, generous things and being incredibly patient yields staggering returns over the long haul. Thanks dude!

    These are all great tips, Ryan. Having an entrepreneurial mindset can seriously improve your chances of blogging success. Don’t be afraid to promote your dreams for sure. And I really like the part about rest. It’s so important, but it’s something not enough bloggers do. Successful entrepreneurs (and bloggers) understand the need to take a step back and relax!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:

      Agreed Anthony! I spend hours upon hours offline daily. I think working hard and long holds most bloggers back because they lose energy, drive, creativity and the habit of thinking critically, by neglecting the powers of rest, recovery and surrender. Thanks buddy 🙂
