Why Start Your Own Online Business?
Well, the reasons vary broadly depending on who you ask. Everyone has different goals, needs, reasons, budgets, etc. So, to trying to figure out why everyone else wants to earn online passive income by means of creating their own online business would be less than fruitful. However, what I can do is tell you what my own personal reasons are.
Now, just let just tell you a bit more about myself real quick. Firstly, if you haven’t already you can view my “About Me” page to get a bit of back story, but what I’m about to share with you is more along the lines of what my current goals are that motivate me to continue building my online business.
I’m the kind of person that really locks onto a target. When I decide I am going to accomplish something, and I seriously set my mind to the task – it’s going to happen. No doubt about it.
Over the course of the last year or so, I’ve officially LOCKED onto a new target. This target isn’t so much a “thing” as much as it is an “experience”. Trouble is that this particular experience is one that will severely limit my ability to be around my computer and my internet connection.
With that said, now I’ll tell you about my next BIG adventure that is a contributing factor that will help me build my business out even further, and even more automated.
Are you ready for this? Here’s the 5-step plan…
1) Tune my business to pay me on auto-pilot.
2) Sell the bulk of my belongings.
3) Rent out my house to cover my mortgage.
4) Procure a 40′ “Open-Water” Sailboat.
5) Spend a year sailing around the Caribbean.
Yep, you read that right. It’s time for a real adventure, and a true test for how automated and profitable a true online income stream can be.
I mean, how much more serious of a test can you have for your online business than seeing if it will run by itself while my family and I are out at sea on a flippin’ sailboat? The NEED of earning online passive income becomes very real when you think about how automated your business has to be in order to make something like this happen.
The thing is that once we disembark on our little adventure, I won’t have convenient access to an internet connection. In fact, it might be days, or even weeks between opportunities for me to get online. With that being a real factor, the need for the business to be able to generate genuine automatic income from the power of the internet becomes even more critical and important.
I find this highly motivating actually. I’m always looking for ways to improve the systems and processes that I use to generate income, but now with this difference perspective, it’s even more important.
How Unique This Business Is
Just the idea that I really do have the freedom to even contemplate spending a year on a sailboat – all the while having my adventure funded by my internet business is really enchanting.
What other business can you own that would allow you total freedom to be able to take a lengthy adventure, much of it disconnected from internet access, and still operate and make money without requiring any true continuous maintenance?
Perhaps there are some other businesses out there that would allow that sort of thing, but I can’t think of any. Especially not ones that you own yourself, without employees who are left behind and handling the day-to-day stuff. Once your business is built and running – there really isn’t any day-to-day stuff. The work you do grows your business to the next level sure, but if you are comfortable with the income output of your online business, then you can just sit back and let it simmer for a while while you focus on other things – in my case, a year on a sailboat.
Awesome stuff – this business of internet marketing. Be encouraged by the vast opportunity that this business opens up for you. Not just in terms of money, but even in terms of real freedom. Freedom to make such outlandish plans as to sail abroad for a full year… or more.
If You Want Something, Start Something
So, as for my plan, we’re still a year or so out from really being able to make that happen. Much to do before departing indeed. I just wanted to say once more that if you have plans to start your own online business then you should really dig in, commit to the process, and get to work sooner than later.
Time flies. If you have a big dream – you’ve got to go for it. There will ALWAYS be 1,000,000 different reasons why you shouldn’t, wouldn’t, or can’t do something, but you have to look at it differently. With life being so short and limited, you have to make things work despite outside circumstance. That’s how you reach outlandish goals – you make it happen.
Making money online is not hard stuff to do and you can be up and running TODAY if you wanted to. Just think of all the doors that will be unlocked for you once you are earning online passive income. That’s the beauty of this business, and it’s something that is truly attainable. The time is now.
If you’re ready to put your head down, get serious, and make meaningful progress towards building your own online income streams, I suggest you get started today.
