An online business is different than “starting a storefront or service business” – including having a warehouse, employees and rent.
With an online business – you are – well… Online!
This means you will be sitting in front of a computer screen at least several hours a day, in a chair, without much interaction with others.
Online business is NOT for everyone. It think we are a special species.
What you want to avoid is creating a job for yourself. We often say that if it isn’t fun – we don’t want to play.
It’s not all fun and games. Business is business and should be taken seriously. But, if you can’t say that you “Love Your Job/Work/Business” most days, you need to change something.
I want you to become a “Streamer” – with Multiple Streams of Online Income. This can be anything from selling products on Amazon/eBay/Etsy (yes, I consider that online income), affiliate marketing, creating your own digital products, author a book and sell it on Amazon and the list goes on and on.
3 Of The Most Powerful Reasons For Online Business
You will be more productive.
Believe it or not when you work for yourself you’re likely going to work much harder than you would for someone else. You also have the ability to set your own hours. This means you can work when you’re feeling most motivated and productive.
If you’re a morning person than you can get up in the morning and work productively for several hours. Then in the afternoon when your energy lags you can focus on other tasks. NOTE: I am soooo NOT a morning person.
You will have goals.
When you own your own online business the goals you set are your own.
You decide what heights you want to reach for.
You decide how you’re going to achieve your goals and why.
You’re the boss from the beginning to the end.
Imagine how much more inspiring it is to strive for your own goals rather than someone else’s.
You work within your own terms.
When you own your own online business you establish the policies and procedures.
You choose the business model and the niche.
You decide how you’re going to market your business and who you’re going to market to.
In short, you create the business based on your needs, desires and goals.
The Benefits Are Outstanding
Working in your pajamas is one of my favorites.
I have the freedom to take days off without having to ask my boss.
You have no limit to how much income you can make.
You will never see the glass ceiling, because there isn’t one.
Spend your days doing something you really like to do.
Today’s Action Step: Take some time, check in with yourself. Are you IN business or have you created a job for yourself?
- Go for a walk or settle in on your favorite comfy couch. Let the thought’s of your business as it stands right now sink in.
- How do your feel?
- Do you feel happy to wake up every morning and “get busy”?
- Or do you feel as if you are a hamster on the never ending wheel going nowhere fast?
Make a few notes. Don’t write down everything you dislike about your business ~ I want you to take the 10 thousand foot view.
I promise… when I’m finished with your online business “revamp” – you’re going to be doing the Debra “Hands In The Air – Happy Dance All Around” jig.
