If you’re like 99% of working mothers who bust their chops in an unfulfilling job, the following thoughts have probably (often) crossed your mind.
- “I wish I could quit, but I need to earn an income…I don’t really have a choice.”
- “I’d love to pursue my passion but it’s too late to make a change.”
- “I’m stressed, exhausted and desperate for a break… there’s got to be more to life than this.”
Maybe you’re earning good money, maybe you’re not.
Either way, if your job isn’t keeping you happy or giving you the quality of life you want; it’s only a matter of time before it burns you out.
In fact, it’s for this exact reason that an increasing number of working women are escaping the 9-5 in droves.
They’re ditching their jobs and becoming their own bosses to gain more freedom, income, and fulfilment.
The internet has opened up limitless ways to earn an income online – Are you ready to take advantage?
Here’s why you should:
1. BUILD YOUR FORTUNE, NOT SOMEONE ELSE'S
Question: While you may be getting paid for the job you do, who’s actually getting rich?
Answer: It’s whoever owns the business asset you’re working for.
The asset in this equation is the business, because it’s where the control and profits go.
By working as an employee, you’re building somebody else’s asset and helping them build themselves a fortune.
Do you really want to spend your life building a fortune you’ll never own?
2. NEED TO DOUBLE YOUR INCOME?
If so, you’re unlikely to achieve it with a traditional job.
With an online business, however, you can scale your sales and income.
You’ve got a worldwide audience at your fingertips, so doubling your sales can be as simple as doubling your web visibility.
A simple way to do this is by increasing your online marketing.
This is how smart, savvy people who’ve become online entrepreneurs are increasing their incomes – fast.
3. EARN LEGITIMATE MONEY WHILE YOU SLEEP (FOR REAL)
The problem with a traditional job is that you’re “trading your time for money”.
Meaning, if you stop working, eventually the income stops too.
With a well run online business, you can put your website to work 24 hours every day.
That means, your business can earn an income without you having to be physically working.
You could go on vacation (or do whatever you want to be doing) and be making sales while you’re at it.
4. THE WORLD HAS CHANGED AND THERE'S NO TURNING BACK
The Internet has changed the world as we once knew it.
You can search for, buy or pay for just about anything online today and there is no turning back from this.
Today, you can reach up to a billion people with a push of a button and sell products across the globe.
To not take advantage would be missing out on a massive, limitless opportunity.
5. WHAT JOB SECURITY?
The biggest reason why people put up with jobs they don’t like is the financial security they get in exchange.
But with outsourcing on the rise, and a the continuing increase in technological advancements, more and more jobs are being made redundant.
When you have one income stream and are completely dependent on somebody else to pay you a wage, do you really have security?
With an online business, you can build multiple sources of revenue, meaning if one goes away, you can have others to keep you going.
6. YOU CALL THE SHOTS
With a traditional jobs, you typically have an employer who dictates what you can and can’t do. What times you work, the location of your workplace and how much money you bring home.
When you own an online business, YOU decide what goes.
You can set your own schedule, work from anywhere, and earn as much as you put your mind to.
STILL NOT CONVINCED?
Here are 3 more reasons to why you should start (or at least learn) to build an online business, starting today.
You Don't Need A Lot Of Money
Compared to traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses that typically need a hefty investment to start, you can start an online business on a budget.
To start building a successful online business, you only need 6 things.
1. A Plan (Free)
2. Something to Sell (Free – See Next Paragraph)
3. A Website
4. Website Visitors
The 6th thing is the willingness to learn and do the work.
You Don't Need Experience (You Don't Even Need A Business Idea).
One of the most common myths about starting an online business is that you need to have experience, special skills or some genius idea to become successful.
The fact is, most successful online business owners didn’t have any of these things when they started.
So how did they get started, you ask?
They used the power of leverage.
More specifically, they leveraged powerful online business models that earned them an income by simply leading people who were looking to buy something they need, to quality products and services that are already doing well in the online market place.
In other words, they started as an “Online Middleman” (officially know as an Affiliate Marketer).
t one point or another, you may have come across a blog post online that recommends a particular product, sometimes not even directly.
This is just one of the many ways you can earn online.
Whether you’re promoting physical or digital products, every sale will certainly render a hefty commission (not to mention passive too!). Thus, you don’t really have to use up a lot of resources trying to come up with great products you can offer. And even if you don’t have a business idea at this time, you can simply begin with what you already know and what you’re already good at. No experience or tech skills are prerequisites too for beginning an online business because of the easy, simple software available these days. And of course we’re all quite lucky to be living at a time when a myriad of training, systems, and tools are just a click away.
- 3.You Can Start A Business Around What You Love and Can Make A Real Contribution To The World. What do you browse about online during dull moments and when you just want to pass the time? What gets you jumping off your seat and leaning forward? These could give you clues as to what you love and what you’re passionate about. 99% of the time, successful online businesses begin with passion. This will guide you as to what niche to focus on. From there, you can explore the various options available in terms of products/services and tools and systems. And once you get the ball rolling, you probably won’t even notice how important you’re becoming to the world, making a real contribution to real people even from the opposite side of the globe.
