Becoming an entrepreneur seems like a scary journey.
It probably means giving up your full time job which pays your bills at the end of each month.
This may sound like an irrational thing to do, but more and more people are entering into this adventure which gives them more freedom of time to spend with the loved ones.
For some of us, this calling is something we cannot resist….for a chance to improve our lifestyle and regain our freedom of time to spend with our loved ones….or are there better reasons for it?
Here are some reasons why….
Starting an online business
It has never been easier to start an online digital business and becoming an entrepreneur these days, with the internet and all the technology, the possibilities are endless.
Starting a physical shop would require a lot more investment than starting an online business would.
The digital online economy is growing tremendously year after year. This makes online marketing one of the easiest and potentially most successful ways of doing business.
You don’t even have to have your own products to sell as you can sell someone else’s products and earn a commission for that as in Affiliate Marketing.
Once you have learned and mastered the foundations and strategies of online marketing you can apply it in other areas of (online) business as well.
Be your own Boss
The alarm clock rings and it is time to get up, get dressed and go to work, clock in and clock out and then go home and the whole process repeats itself day in day out.
Does this sounds familiar?
But with a mindset change you can change your circumstances.
Do you want to control your own schedule and change your destiny?
This can only happen when you become your own boss.
Instead of having someone else telling you what you do, you make all the decisions. While you can get advice from others, you need to make the decisions, so be resourceful and connect with other entrepreneurs.
You have the flexibility to work where and when you want but you do need to put in the hard work to get the results, especially when you are at the stage of setting up your business.
This is no different than when you started working in a new job, where you were learning the ropes of the job.
However, it will pay off once you have completed your set up and the business is up and running, which leaves you with time to do the things you love.
Freedom of time
Remember the time when you were in the corporate environment, where you were on the 9 to 5. grind or perhaps longer hours if you wanted to climb that corporate ladder.
As for being an entrepreneur you decide how much time you spend in building your business and it is even better with an online business as it doesn’t really matter what time of the day you work.
Your online presence will be 24/7 anyway.
You can arrange working on your business around other activities or a hobby or even around your family.
Freedom of time is one of the biggest reason why people choose to starting their own business.
Did you ever dream of spending your days doing what you want?
Do you visualise spending your money how you please.
As an entrepreneur you have the potential to generate a lot more money than in a corporate job where you are trading time for money and fulfilling someone else’s goals.
As an entrepreneur, you can generate your income by working smarter, especially with online marketing, you have the ability to automate your business once you have laid the foundation.
That way your business will work for you 24/7 and even while you are sleeping or on vacation.
If your goal is to achieve financial independence, you’ve got to start taking steps to achieve your goal – right now.
The beauty of an online business is that you can work where ever and whenever as long as you have a laptop and internet connection.
The possibilities are endless as you can be on vacation anywhere around the world or sitting in the airport lounge waiting to board a plane or even just working from home.
For a lot of people this is a very appealing idea, also called a ‘laptop lifestyle’. You literally have the freedom of working from wherever you want.
There is never a dull moment when you become an entrepreneur as there are so many things to learn about all aspects of having a business. Sometimes this can be overwhelming.
It is journey and all of us have gone through this.
Be honest with yourself about your strengths and understand that, when you’re running a business, your time is precious.
While you can certainly look into trainings to help grow your abilities, you may be better off looking to others to help in the areas where you struggle.
Having your own business doesn’t mean you have to do everything on your own. Neither do you have to like everything that involves running your own business.
Outsourcing can be a very welcome solution for tasks you are not particularly passionate about. And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. This way you can focus on what you love doing the most.
Everyone can learn to be an entrepreneur
The short answer is that anybody can, but not everybody should unless you are prepared for to put in the work required.
Becoming an entrepreneur has less to do with what you know and what your experiences are, but everything to do with mindset and what you are willing to do to succeed.
If and when you are considering to start your own business, research the internet for information on starting a business.
I am fortunate that when I researched the internet, I cam across a digital education company who have been teaching people how to start their own online business from scratch and they have been doing this for over a decade.
With the help of the education and business system, I now have my own website up and running and have started providing value and insights on why you want to start your own business while you are still in your full time job!
Starting your own business is not a talent you are born with, you can learn the skills once you know where you want your future to be, then learn the skills to get you there.
To be an entrepreneur , you need to take action and that is what you need to do!
Starting your own business can be a struggle from time to time, as there will be ups and downs, but in the end it is worth it! .
Imagine the feeling of accomplishment when you succeed and how empowering it is to know that you have actually succeeded in creating a business from scratch and you are now writing your own pay check.
It is a life changing experience becoming an entrepreneur.
It is a journey where you have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and applying them to your business.
This is truly a life changing reality that you have created for yourself.
Learning a new skill requires determination and commitment and I can tell you now that is the best investment I have made.
Now I can work in the comfort of my own home and I do not have to wake up to an alarm clock, get dressed and commute through the horrendous traffic to and from work. It is so flexible on my time!
I need to tell you that I did face challenges while learning a new skill. I questioned myself if I could do this, but with determination, I soldiered on and quashed my doubts on starting my own online business.
There are thousands of Affiliate Marketing programs out there on the internet and you need to do your research to see which path you want to follow.
I chose a digital education company who have been teaching people how to start their own online business from scratch and they have been doing this for over a decade.
They are focused and dedicated to help you on your journey but the success of your business does depend on you, your mindset and dedication.
What I found that was where the biggest growth happens. This brings me to you…… I found a free video workshop series of shared ideas on how to break this cycle of just working and start living.
What I uncovered is a whole new life, right in front of us, we could not see it.
I started an online business from scratch with no experience, scary…YES – rewarding (worth it)..100%.
And now that is my hope for you, even if you watch the video series and if you are happy with where you are, amazing… you confirm that feeling, or you might uncover a passion to start a franchise or own a traditional biz, it really does not matter, as long as you are willing to do what most people are not.
If you are ready to learn more about how it works, complete the form on the right hand sidebar with your name and email address, and I will send the exact same video series which got me started, directly to your inbox or if you prefer to access the tutorials here
I have also included my personal email address here [email@example.com] and I want you to know that you can reach out to me with any questions you may have.
You need to figure out your why! and don’t let life pass you by.
I look forward to talking to you soon.
