Things I Did Before I Started My Online Business
Why did I start an online home-based business? Of course, I decided to do that after reading about others doing it and they not only make a lot of money from their business and gain their financial freedom, but also they achieve their time freedom. They can do whatever and whenever they want. I want to lead that kind of lifestyle that I used to dream about ( I’m sure most people do).
So I decided to change my life and felt so crazy about starting my own online home-based business that I told everyone about my intention ( to start an online home based business). However, rather than getting a ‘green light’ for that decision, what I received was a whole lot of negative remarks saying that ‘it won’t work’ and ‘you will be caught in a scam’. However, I remained strong and started to look for information in the internet. I checked out all the affiliate marketing sites, newsletters and forums. I looked for e-books about internet business by searching for keywords like ‘proven internet business’, ‘automated income streams’, ‘internet marketing’ and so on. There are so much information on different types of online business opportunities. All provide a guaranteed successful income (a six figure monthly income, mind you), and ask to join them and follow in their footsteps.
At this point, I thought that the first words were going to be true, that I will be scammed and I felt the need of a mentor or teacher who has already been there and done that, and is able to guide me to succeed. While searching the internet one day, I found a free e-book called The Dotcomology, written by the Home Biz guy. I studied that e-book and finally signed up through the pluginprofit site. After that, it was all history. Now, I have a website to promote my online opportunities. Also, the system provides full guidance to start my online home-based business.By having my own website with my own domain name and hosting account, my website looks professional and gives a good impression to my subscribers. As compared to a free server website which nobody likes to visit.
Therefore, making a research before I actually started my internet business has really paid off. I managed to avoid the mistakes made by most internet business starters who jump into any online business and subject themselves to scams.
So, after all this while, I am left to ask myself ” What if I have started sooner?” After all, having my own internet home-based business gives me some advantages as to working for a company boss. I do not have to spend the time commuting to office which can be gruesome during the peak hours. i can now choose my own time and dresscode even if that means in my pyjamas the whole day.By spending more time in my online business, it makes more profits and increase s my earnings. An internet business does not require a large capital as compared to owning a traditional shop. Owning a website allows me to run my business 24/7. This will not stop even though I’m enjoying my vacation in some remote places. Everyday, my online business gets exposed to a growing market as more and more people are exposed to the internet. And of course, the most important reason for me to start my internet business is I can have my weekends off as no boss will tell me to come and work over the weekend again.
