“What do my customers really want?” “How do I attract new customers and convert them into loyal fans?” “Where do I need to focus my time and energy to grow the business?”

Entrepreneurs from all walks of life ask themselves these questions. Food truck owners are no different; we’ve heard it from the food trucks we frequent and the owners we’ve reached out to. Thankfully, the world of online entrepreneurship offers some ideas to help as it, like the food industry, relies heavily on direct contact with customers.

Here are seven insightful online entrepreneurs who have made it their mission to help other entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Each has a particular focus you can learn and apply.

2. Always Stay Focused on Your Dream

Though she grew up in New Zealand, Gala Darling always dreamed of living in New York City. But when she went there for a vacation in 2008, she didn’t expect that she would stay forever. However, after a fight with a friend left Gala without a place to stay, she quickly realized that she would do whatever it took to move to the city of her dreams.

Gala found a place to live right away, but the struggle didn’t end there. Because she was in the country on a visitor’s visa, she could only stay for 90 days. For the next year, she flew back and forth between America and New Zealand every few months until she was finally able to get an artist’s visa that would allow her to move to New York permanently.

Though the frequent traveling was expensive and draining, Gala never took her eyes off her dream. Today, Gala lives in New York City where she preaches the virtues of “radical self-love” on her popular blog and in private workshops. She also co-founded and runs The Blogcademy with fellow bloggers Kat Williams and Shauna Haider, and has been featured in The New York Times, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and the New York Post.
