Easy StartUp Ideas – Reasons to Get Started
It’s only human to desire comfort and want the best out of life, It makes us feel secure inside and gives us the illusion that as long as we stick to the path we’re on, then everything is going to fall in place and be just fine. Let’s know think about what it takes to make have a start-up business from scratch, most of us think that this will either take too much money or to much time. This is not altogether true, the real expectation getting an understanding of your goals and what you are wanting to get out of an online business. I want to briefly discuss three different types of goals that people have with why they try to start an online business.
Full Time Online Business to Live Life Your Way
Making a full-time income where you can quit your day does require a little money and effort on your part. No matter what you want to do in life, you do get what you put in. Meaning the more effort you apply then the better the outcome. I used to believe that there was a get rich quick schemes out there that worked however after trying countless ones then I realized this one key thing….You get what you put in. Image if you put in your normal 9 to 5 work week on your own online business, not only would your business grow quickly but you are self driven to make it work. Meaning the more you see the results happening then the easier and more enjoyable it gets.
Second Income from your Online Business
Generally, at some point in our lives, we have this voice in our heads that says “Is this really all that my life is going to be?” and the truth to the matter is you can work a day job and run an online business with little effort. Unlike trying to make an online business a full-time income, making an online business for a second income doesn’t require as much effort as one would think. When I first started, I committed about an hour a day learning and using that knowledge to better my website design. I did have resources that I referred to that I could learn from but in today’s world, you can learn simply by doing some research online. I did take several training classes such as Tony Robbin’s money management, Tai Lopez’s 67 steps, and Wealthy Affiliate’s free training. You don’t have to take any of these internet training programs although it does help you gain an edge.
Autonomy is Growing Fast, is Your Income?
It is no secret the the way autonomy is growing that the jobs we have today will not be around in the next 5 to ten years. This is, in my opinion the best reason to start you own online business. In other words, as fast as autonomy is shift the way the world works and our 9 to 5 days jobs are slowly changing or leaving then you can be growing your online business to be able to make money from anywhere. Learn how to automate your income and take that weight of of your shoulders.
As much as we say that things we do do not bother us, lets be honest….the world can weigh heavy on us in times where money is tight and you don’t have a good source of income. The internet has made plenty of people become millionaires and they are not all internet geeks that know how to write code.
Believe me, if I can do this than anyone can!
That’s why people often continue to tolerate long commutes, the anxiety of clocking in and out, crappy bosses, and barely getting vacation time at a job they can’t stand. It’s why some people fear attending networking events, or why some people have a hard time avoiding unhealthy foods.
It’s safer to choose the familiar path or to keep doing what we’re used to.
Take this scenario for example… how many times have you repeatedly told yourself to go to the gym, but then decided to skip it all because you didn’t feel like going? Even though you’re aware of the benefits and aware of the results it would bring, you still choose the less resistant path.
You let your mind control you, and your goals suffered as a result.
What does it take to break out of our comfort zone and how you can control your fears?
The good news is, every single successful person out there started in their own comfort zone and had to make a jump too.
It’s a required step that many just don’t take.
Please leave me a comment so that I can better assist you if you are interested in starting an online business. I would love to hear from you and do not mind helping out in any way.
Many people are today looking for extra ways to earn extra income from home, with the living cost going up almost every year and salaries staying the same this is a great opportunity.
Like everyone else, I’ve always wanted to earn an extra income from home and who knows maybe at some time in the future turn it into full-time income and leave office politics behind.
Having said that, getting started online is not easy without assistance like support or a website like this. You have to do your research now days with all the online scams.
Many people start out thinking that working online at your own convenient time, meaning leaving things for months then getting back to it, unfortunately, it does not work that way, one has to keep going, keep working on whatever you do online to make money.
Thanks for a very well written post, very informative.
Nice to hear from you and you do have some very interesting points. Many people these days think that starting an online business is just a click away from all of the programs that make you think that you can become a millionaire over night and it doesn’t quite work that way.
You have to do your research and learn as much as you can to make progress in what you are doing. It is just like working a 9 to 5 at first but if you do work hard and have the effort then it will pay off but it is up to you to provide enough effort to succeed just like anything else.
Glad to hear from you,
Online business is a great way to supplement your income or who knows start a new career. The world has changed so much today, there is not such thing as job security anymore. You can lose your job at anytime and starting over is getting harder and harder. You mentioned in your post you have tried many training programs.Which one would you recommend if someone wanted to start an online business?
Great to hear from you my friend and I am glad to hear that you agree. There are so many people that just are not aware of this and they do not know how to prepare before hand. At any given time with the way that autonomy is growing, major corporations are shifting gears and making jobs either less paying of even making job automated.
It is in the very best interest of all, at the very least, give an online business a shot and try to get the ball rolling so that they have a cushion in case something happens. Living day to day with worries about tomorrow is never fun for anyone so this is the main reason that I decided lend a hand to people to and try to help give an understanding that they do have other options.
They can have a successful online business with a little effort.
“The key to success is to get started.”
Thank you for your comment.
You gave two very good places to start. People need to realize that it does take work and time to build an online business, many give up too soon or fall for those get rich quick programs. With the way things are going everyone is going to need to find other ways to bring more income into the household. I believe if you get get the proper training you will become successful working online.
Nice to hear from you and yes your are correct when saying it is very helpful to find a place that offers training on how to get started. This way you gain from all of the past experiences of other people and do not waste time, as you know, time is money.
In your own online business it is helpful to get all the training that you can get, there are even places that offer free online training.
Wealthy Affiliate is one of them.
Thank you for your comment,
All great advice for people looking to make an income online. I too think a lot of people are afraid of sacrifice, that’s why they get stuck with the same old same old.
Do you think that is true?
They want success and can taste it but they don’t seem to want to take a chance to get it.
You have to want it as much as you like to breathe.
It’s hard work and most people are looking for the easy way out. This is human nature but you have to try and break free.
Thanks for this, really well done.
Thank you for your comment. I do agree that most people either are unaware of how easy it can be to make a second income with just a little effort and that they tend to error on the side of caution. Most people, if they do know about how to make a second income, tend to stay with the easy side of things which in my eye is a risky move.
With the way autonomy is growing these days, no 9 to 5 job is safe and with that being said, starting an online internet business is the way to go. You can start slow and work your way into it without feeling rushed and then if something does happen to your 9 to 5 job all you have to do so focus completely on your online internet business.
Thank you for an informative and thought provoking article. I think you are spot on about people wanting something better but choose to stay in the comfort zone. Would you have any tips or techniques that can help people get motivated enough to get out of the comfort zone? I know I can definitely use some of that! Thanks again!
Thank very much for your interest in starting a business online to be able to work from home and have a second income, possibly a full time job if you are willing. There are several ways to get started but it depends on how much you know about building a website.
If you have limited experience then I recommend Wealthy Affiliate because they have a great training area and also allow you to have a free website to use doing the training so it doesn’t cost a thing.
If you have experience and have a website already made then understanding which affiliates to use is the key and having an understanding of search engine optimization.
Please drop me a line in the comment section or in the contact page so I can give you some quick tips.
Thanks for sharing your insight into creating a business from home! I agree that most people just want to stay in their comfort zone and stick with what they know, even though there is a much better option of even starting a small online and making a small second income to start off with. Working a 9 to 5 job will only give you a steady salary but not much fulfilment and the money does not often reward the effort put in.
You are 100% correct when you say that most people are ok with just coasting through the average 9 to 5 job or whatever job they might have. The scary part is, what if that job is no longer there or that job changes in some way so you are no longer fit for it?
That would leave your family and yourself out looking for a way just to get by but why?
You can start an online business to be able to make money for home to become a second income or even a full time income so you no longer worry about the “what ifs”.
Autonomy is growing in every direction so why can’t we grow to automate our income?
The answer is “We can”
Thanks for your comment and I look forward to talking with you again.
Work From Home, Earn Money Online, Make Money Internet, all words used by countless people every day in the hopes that they will be able to find the golden goose.
It doesn’t really exist and I should know because I’ve been in the work from home business for a great many years.
Even after all those years I’m not a millionaire yet, or will be anytime soon.
It takes a lot of hard work to achieve success online and anyone who tells you that they will make you very rich within a few weeks or months is lying through their teeth.
You mention Wealthy Affiliate as a great place to start and that I will agree with.
You will get a great start and you will get all the training, help and support you need to make money from the internet.
It will still take maximum effort from the individual though and as they say – you will only get out of it what you’re prepared to put into it.
I wish you success Shane.
I completely agree with the hard work part if are planning on making an online website business your ful time income however if you are not doing so and only trying to make a second income or better plan for the future then there are easy ways to become successful.
Those get rich quick schemes are a complete lie though, I have been through a lot of them in hopes to becoming successful overnight and it just doesn’t happen however that it not to say that it can’t be done.
Working with places like Wealth Affiliate and such, you gain so much from them that making a very well paid second income is easier.
Thank you very much for the comment and I look for ward to talking with you again soon.
I think that there’s one crucial thing people forget when it comes to starting an online business is the fact that it simply doesn’t happen overnight.
Those first few months are where you’ll work the hardest and get paid the least, wouldn’t you agree?
People are lured by the prospect of an easy way to make money but that’s not how it is.
Whether you do it part-time or full-time, it takes time.
As far as a business in it”s first few months, I would say that is the make or break time period but with an online internet business where you are able to work on it from home then I would say that the pressure is off.
When you first start a business or an online marketing business then you have to dedicate some time to it but as we all know that no one makes it overnight so with no pressure and doing something that is much more enjoyable then it makes life so much easier to startup a business.
A website can be for your business that you have already, in aid in starting a business, an online only business, affiliate marketing business, or a number of other reasons.
Thank you for the comment and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
What do you think is you best experience, working for someone else or yourself?
Funny you mention get rich schemes, I’d always thought there was a fast way to make money online too. But after numerous failures, I’ve learned that hard work is key, overnight success isn’t a real thing. You get out, what you put in in anything in life.
Thanks for sharing.
Nice to hear from and first let me thank you for your comment. I think most of us have fallen for one or two of these get rich quick schemes or secret unknown elements to business, however that is far from the truth.
I will say that starting an online business in which you can work from home is a lot easier but you still have to dedicate yourself to doing so. It doesn’t have to be a weight on your shoulders though, as most of us start an online business to have a second income and help better our future.
Can’t disagree with everything you’ve said.
You’re indeed right, web affiliating is a good way to earn some side income. It requires very little capital compared to investments like real estate etc. and all it requires most is the time which a lot of people especially younger ones have in abundance.
It is a good way to not waste time on unnecessary activities and use time more productively to make some side income. With a blink of an eye, a person who started developing multiple websites in about 5-6 years can earn maybe about $3500 a month or even more and the best part about this is while your website is still running and earning you side income, you still have your 24 hrs in a day to do whatever you want, whether it’s chilling or getting a job and earning more. Wealthy affiliate is definitely a great place to start!
As everything you said I agree with, we have to be aware of the future and the changes that will be made so having a side income that you ca shift into a full time income with take the weight of your shoulders.
Thank you for your comment, I look forward to talking with you again.
