There is no reason not to start an online business. And you don’t have to quit your day job to do it (if you don’t want to). You can hire others to take care of the tasks that you don’t have time to do. There are simply too many ways for you to make money online that you’d be crazy not to take advantage of them.
Corporations have become stingy with raises and bonuses. 2-5% raises don’t cover living expenses. Companies are demanding more from their employees. Layoffs run ramped in the corporate world and the term “job security” is no longer in existence.
You are no longer helpless and don’t have to accept this bull$hit. You can take control of your future in your own hands by creating a great business online that meets demand. The best part? You don’t have to give up your current position while developing this new business. You don’t need to let your boss know what you are doing. When your online business gets to the point of making more money than you make at work, you have the option of quitting your job! That alone is all the motivation you need to get going with your new endeavor.
You need to be smart about creating an online business. If you approach it chaotically, as many do, your chances of success are little. Lack of planning is the main reason why people fail with their online businesses. There are plenty of programs that teach you the right methods. Trust me, I have invested in quite a few.
It's a good idea start your business around one of your existing passions. But, you need to make sure it is a concept that can earn you money. Also, it’s a delicate balance to choose how far to niche down in a market. If it’s too broad, you’ll face intense competition (heard the term Red Ocean?). If it’s too narrow, you will not have enough customers to make it worthwhile (if no one is doing it, there’s probably a reason for it). If you are just doing it as a hobby and not looking to make money just go with your passion anyway.
You DO NOT need to be confined to accepting what big business dictates you should do. You can take charge of your career and unlock the potential of an online business. Your new business can not only free you from the corporate chains, but it's also a heck of a lot of fun to do.
Stop building someone else's dream at the cost of yours.
