Starting an online business is the dream of millions, yet very few follow through. Excuses, doubt and negativity over-power them and their dream of a successful business will be soon forgotten. Don’t be one of those people. Don’t be a drifter. I want to share with you 5 reasons to start an online business and why now is the greatest time of all to begin. No matter your age, background or financial status, starting a business can be a foundation for your future and stability for the ever-changing technology-driven world in which we live in.
The Future Is Now
Ever wonder if jobs will be around for long? Well you should. Unless you’re a technology geek, super scientist or owner of your own company, jobs for people will be traded for jobs for robots. We are at the cusp of an ever-evolving world of technology. With driverless cars and robots that can clean houses, this world is forever changing. Jobs will soon be a thing of the past for most people. In order to surely sustain your future, starting an online business is really the only sure thing to do.
Having an online business is the best thing anyone could do.
Secure futures should not lie in the hands of someone else besides yourself. Starting an online business is the best way to secure that. With the ability to start a blog and create an income stream online, why would anyone want to rely on an employer or company for a 401K or pension? I’d want to rely on myself to make sure I get paid and have a nest egg waiting when it’s time to retire; not a company that can shut its doors at any giving time. Starting an online business has hundreds of thousands of avenues to choose from. From drop-shipping to email marketing to blogging. The number of businesses and avenues that are available is an abundance.
Be Your Own Boss
Whether you want to work from home, an office or on the beach (my favorite), working for yourself is the best way to discipline yourself (by actually working) and doing work on your terms. Being your own boss is not a cake-walk all the time. If you don’t do the work, you don’t eat. The beauty about being the boss is that you work on your own terms. For me, I do all the smart work up front and then relax. I like to work endlessly at the front-end because I know that I’ll eventually want to put energy into something else (like sleeping or laying on a beach). So I purposely only create businesses that allow me to automate them virtually around 90% with little maintenance. This allows me to work on my own schedule, doing what I want to do, when I want to do it.
Some people will say you have to work hard to play hard. I say that’s B.S. You work smart to do whatever you want. Don’t believe the hype or the masses. Hence why only 5% of the world is doing exactly what they want; on their own terms.
Earn An Unlimited Income
With a regular job, there is a ceiling cap with your income potential. You can only go so far. Owning your own business allows you the freedom to earn whatever you want. There are entrepreneurs who earn millions of dollars online, mainly in passive income. With your own business, there are no rules except the ones you make. Setting a goal and then taking action towards steps to achieve that goal is a sure way to set yourself up for success.
Live A More Fulfilled Life
I can’t tell you the countless stories I hear of people who drag themselves in and out of work every single day like zombies. I literally hear horror stories. What’s the point in working a job in which you hate in order to live a life full of emptiness and sorrow? Starting an online business gives you the freedom to run your company exactly how you want, on your own terms. You live a more fulfilled life and a purpose-driven life. It’s sad to hear people who say they work a job only for “the money”. It’s too bad they don’t understand that if they put their mind towards a goal of realizing their dreams and passions and take action, that those dreams and passions will come true…
Freedom is one of the reasons I am a full-time entrepreneur. I once had a great-paying job too. It didn’t give me the freedom I wanted and didn’t fulfill my purpose in life. And It wasn’t what I wanted to do forever. It was merely a stepping stone to get me to the next level in life in which would take me to where I am now.
I appreciate the time I spent in my job, however it doesn’t compare to the life I have now. It doesn’t compare to waking up off the lake to a beautiful sunrise and meditating in the middle of the woods where I can be in-tune with myself. It doesn’t compare to all the time I have now to plan my day according to me. To spend time with my family and live and work how I choose. It doesn’t compare.
Freedom is something that is an exchange for working a job. Everybody can’t wait to get off work. Whether it’s 5 o’clock or 7 in the morning; everybody can’t wait to get off work. If you always are in a hurry to leave, what’s the point in going?
What’s the point in going to school to get a degree, to get a job to pay off the degree? What kind of life is that?
If you love your job and love what you do, I see no point in living that kind of life. It’s sad that most people are living this type of life and feel trapped, as if there is no way out. There is a way out though. I planned my escape route and left my six figure job to live the life of my dreams. Not only have I replaced my income, I’ve exceeded it. I actually work less (because I am working more efficiently now) and do what I want. My income is now automated and I don’t have to put in hard work to achieve great results.
I want you to know that it is possible to live a life worth living. To life a more fulfilled life and a life full of magic and hope and happiness. The media, the news, friends, family, will all try to talk you back down to reality. Frankly speaking, your reality is what you create it to be.
Just look around you. You’re now living in your reality.
I think you stumbled upon this post for a reason; because you’re looking for help. For hope. There is hope. I was someone who scoured the internet, looking for answers and a way out. I found the key to unlock my door to success. After years of trying to figure it out, I finally had. I want to help you to unlock the door of your success.
The life you envision can be yours. It’s literally waiting for you. I hope this post brought inspiration for you to go out and live your dreams.
