Avoid the Stress - Use Situational Learning

Situational Learning is a proven tactic for beginners to learn how to make money online.

How To Start The Make Money Online Process

Most of us who are getting into the "Make Money Online" business see the promotions for new launches of products that will make us a 6-figure income within a matter of days. It is only natural to want to make money online with the big boys... and do it fast.

After all, it's the Dream. We live in the land of opportunity. We deserve it.

This may be true, but unless you get an experienced mentor to personally walk you through the learning process, you are stuck in the learning process with the rest of us.

Don't get me wrong, you CAN get someone to walk you through it, but you will have to pay dearly for that to happen. There are "coaching" programs a-plenty. However they are usually quite pricey.

So, more than likely, you are going to have to learn how to make money online the same way the rest of us are doing it... one step at a time.

It is not the quite as difficult as learning rocket science, but it's close (just kidding_)

It does seem like there should be a One-size-fits-all learning program for beginners trying to make money online.

Unfortunately, since there are so many ways to actually make money online, you will have to pick one to start with, then learn that method from start to finish.

Situational Learning

This is tip #3.

Tip #1 was to Avoid the Shiny Thing

Tip #2 was to Understand that there IS a learning curve involved

Situational Learning: the process of learning at the point of need. It's kind of like On The Job Training.

I am a school teacher, and I can't tell you how many times one of these two questions is asked:

Why do I have to learn this?


What good is this going to do in my real life?

These are really good questions, even though they get a bit annoying to a teacher. It gets a bit tiring to explain the answer, and sometimes you wonder yourself, "Yeah, why AM I teaching this?"

But as teachers, it's our job to do this every day.. teach stuff that may not be pertinent, ever, to a student's life.

But when you are trying to learn how to make money online, it is quite a bit different. You WANT to learn... You NEED to learn.

So you try to learn it all at once.

That is not situational learning. Situational learning is discovering how to do something and doing it right then. That way, the next time you have to do the same task, it will be in your brain. It is probably the most effective method of learning. Learn something and use it in a practical application.

What About Memorizing the Manual?

There are not too many folks who can sit down and study a manual for a particular product from cover to cover and retain the knowledge that is in the manual. Most of us would then have to go back and refer to the manual when a problem arises. The point at which we return to the manual and get the needed information is called situational learning.

Chances are pretty good that we will remember how to do it the next time.

If you wan to learn how to make money online, practice situational learning. Go back to the manual, or training video, or your bookmarked tutorial, when you need it. After awhile, you can leave the manual on the shelf, because it will be part of your knowledge base.

This is truly why I love 4-day Money Making Blueprint. I can go back and listen to the video that covers the topic of my frustration time and time again.
