I’m glad to be here today with you on my blog talking about something as important as Starting Your Own Business! This has got to be one of the single most important things of your life. So I am happy to be here sharing this with you.
I was in your shoes about six months ago. I searched and searched for how to start a business. I spent literally hours just thinking and contemplating of what could be my next step. I thought to myself:
- What will it cost?
- How will I get the money?
- What will I sell or what service will I offer?
- Will I be passionate about it?
- How long will I do it for?
- How much income will i generate?
If you were thinking of any of these questions, then you’re in the right place! Today we’re going to come up with a solution for you. I will be going over all of these answers and then a couple additional recommendations to help you launch your business today! How’s that sound?
Start Up Costs
If I had to pick the #1 reason why people just do not get into business, it’s got to be the cost. As you know, it can be quite expensive to start a business. I’ve thought of t-shirt businesses, automotive, technology, health. All of these require a lot of money to invest in starting up.
There are multi level marketing companies out there like Amway, ItWorks, Kyani, but still all of these require an initial investment. So I began to think, could it be that ANY business you start will require an initial investment? The short answer is no, and with the information I will provide for you today, you will be able to start your business with $0 down!
Where Do I Start?
Let’s start with what are you passionate about? This can be anything from Health, nutrition, extracurricular activities, sports, fishing (I love fishing!), making money, technology, the list goes on and on. Noticed I said making money. If you can’t think of anything that you’re passionate, it might be just making money. 🙂 This is simple. People tend to overthink these things sometimes; I know I did. I wrote a blog about this, feel free to check it out!
Now after you’ve thought about what you’re passionate about put it to the side for minute, we’re going to apply that to your business. The reason why we must pick something that we’re passionate about is because have you heard the saying, “If you do something you love, you won’t work a day in your life”? I think this is true because I’ve owned my own online business for a little over six months, and I love it! It literally doesn’t even feel like work.
You don’t want to do something just for the money. Lord knows, I’ve began so many projects in my life only to put it to an end after six months. Because you get tired of it! It no longer becomes fun. You keep searching for the next big thing. Let’s help you find something you love and then we can apply it to your next business.
What’s Next? Finding an Opportunity.
I want to introduce you the online marketing world. Man, is this internet world not the BEST! The internet is getting larger and larger and before we know it, everyone in the world will be online! Currently there are over 3.2 billion people online. Guess what the majority are doing? Yep, you guessed it; Shopping! What if I said, “You can have a storefront on the internet with a curb appeal to billions of people.” I’ve got to say, that would be the best business location in the world! Wouldn’t you agree?
How to Start an Online Business?
You want to take what you’re passionate about and apply it to your online business. Would you believe it if I told you, you can easily build and own your very own website? Now don’t get scared and think, there’s no way, because I will tell you now, building a website is as easy as building blocks. ABC 123! Seriously. I want you to build your own website and make it into something beautiful, HUGE, unique, your story, INCREDIBLE, and all of the above.
How to Build a Website
It really is one of the easiest tasks in opening up your own online business. There is a remarkable website that I’m going to refer you too that will show you how to do this, step by step. A website is your real estate in the online world. You build a place for people to come visit and share things with them that will benefit them. Only YOU are in control of your website, and YOU run the whole business!
What Will I Sell?
There are Millions and Millions of products to sell! Remember when I asked you to pick something you’re passionate about? This is where you’ll apply it. Literally you can pick anything! Dogs, cats, music, babies, clothes, fashion, so on and so on. I will teach you how you to do this and how to generate income with it. Most importantly is that you will be doing something that you’re passionate about.
There are many ways to make money online. You can make money by:
- Selling your own product – create a product
- Selling other people’s products (Affiliate Marketing)
- Building websites and selling them
- Flipping domain names
My favorite is affiliate marketing. In an affiliate program you earn commission for helping companies generate income, or bridging the gap between products and customers. There is an affiliate program for basically ANYTHING that sells online, and they’re always free to join. Take Amazon for example, you can sell any product on amazon, on your website and earn a commission off of it. Amazon currently pays anywhere from 4% – 15% in commission.
The goal is that you bring traffic to your website, (We’ll teach you how to do that too) and your visitors will purchase the things that you sell. The place that is going to teach you how to do this is called Wealthy Affiliate. This website is currently free to join, no credit card required to sign up, and it will help you launch your business. As a matter of fact, this website you’re on here now is a result of the training I received from WA!
This is not another one of those online scams. I know we all hate those! This is a 100% Legitimate Business and Training Center for you to get your business started. You can learn more here.
In a Nutshell – What will you be doing?
- You will build a website about something that you’re passionate about.
- You will sell products that you will earn commission off of.
- Your website will generate income month after month.
- You will retire a happy person. 🙂
I started my online business a little over six months ago and I’ve started making money. My goals are to build my income to a comfortable level where I can travel the world with my family, and provide for them all the things that we desire. I want to Give back to the world, and live financially free life for the rest of my life.
I never thought I would have this opportunity to be sitting here with you and talking about starting a business for yourself! This feels like a dream to me to be able to help someone with their financial situation. I feel as if one of the only vehicles to living a life of freedom of time and money, is owning your own small business. And now you can!
Why Start an Online Business?
Think about the different possibilities you can do. You can own several websites. Think about the time you’ll have. Think about the places you can go. You can go anywhere in the world with your laptop and your online business. 🙂 Think about how much money you can make. I know of someone making over 100k a month in internet marketing. I know many more making around 10k a month. You can achieve this too if you’re willing to commit to it.
Set a Long Term Goal.
There are many people online living the dream! Earning thousands of dollars a month, some even 100s thousands a month as I’ve mentioned. Now I want to be realistic with you. You probably will not earn this overnight, your first week, or even your first month. There are stepping stones. You’ll learn about all of this at Wealthy Affiliate. You must set realistic goals to earn revenue. Remember, this is a business, and with any business it takes time to build. Stay committed, Stay Positive, and Get Ready to Earn!
I got to say it has been a real pleasure. I hope to help you in any way I can. Please leave a comment or question below in the comment section and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
