It’s 2017. No longer are you tied down to working a job you hate, to earn however much your boss wants to give you, no matter how much work you put in.
If you still don’t know where to begin, start by creating your own blog, or see my 8 step guide to starting your first online business.
Nowadays, there are a million and one ways to make a million dollars online.
Here are 10 reasons to build an online business
1. Work from anywhere in the world
As long as you have an internet connection, you can finally travel the world and see all the countries you’ve wanted to see without being held back by work and other obligations.
2. Unlimited Income
Unlike a job where you only sometimes get recognition, how hard you work is equal to how much you get paid.
Making $100,000 a year at a job without a college degree is pretty impressive.
Making $100,000 a month online is just another story you hear every single day.
Don’t feel like working today? Take the day off.
Someone’s birthday coming up and they’re throwing a party? You’ll be there.
Sick of your environment and need a change of pace? Close your eyes and throw a dart on a map.
Don’t be like this guy
4. You are the boss
The best part of having your own internet based business is that YOU are the boss. No one can fire you. Anything you don’t want to do, you don’t have to. You’re never late for work. And ultimately, you’re a FREAKIN BOSS.
5. Make money while you sleep
Waking up to payment notifications while you were sleeping is one of the best feelings ever. The only thing that even comes close is sex.
6. You become an authority
A core value we all share as human beings is significance and contribution. As you grow an internet based business, you will grow as well. It’s inevitable.
Share your values, ideas, thoughts, and journey to the world and get paid to do it. People want to hear your story.
7. Waking up without an alarm clock
How many times have you turned down fun because you had to get up early the next morning?
Or how many times have you wished you could sleep in just a little bit longer?
It’s like waking up to the weekend, except it’s every day of your life.
8. You live more
You have less stress overall, you spend hardly any time in traffic, spend more time doing what you love and you get to hang out with your friends and family as much as you want.
9. You’re learning a skill
Being self-employed is challenging but very rewarding. Stick to it until the end and not only will you have everything listed above, but you’ll also develop the skill set of value creation, meaning you can make even more money – if you wanted to.
The one thing successful entrepreneurs all have in common is this:
Take everything away from them, and they will have it all back in less than a year.
10. Your work is Automation-proof
As time goes on, automation will replace the majority of jobs out there today.
Job security? What the hell is that?
Very soon, many people will be forced to either upgrade their skills, work online, or file for unemployment.
There are currently 53 million people doing freelance work in the US – 34% of the national workforce.
