It is 2016 and now more than ever it has been easy to start a business online, there are so many opportunities at the end of your finger tips it is amazing. Anyone can learn anything at their own pace, it’s not like it was many years ago where you had to go to school to learn something. Now, school is anywhere you want it to be, whether it is at home, traveling or in another country, the opportunities are endless.
I understand business is not for everyone but I want you to think about this in a different way, even if you’re not interested in starting your own business, I want you to think of this more as extra income coming in every month which can give you an extra helping hand.
As I said before you can learn to do anything wherever you want, the internet has created so much freedom in the way we learn.
Even if you are not business orientated think about what an extra $100 a month would do for you or even $1000 a month which is more achievable than you think. A lot of courses lay it out from step 1 all the way to the final goal. Telling you exactly what you need to do to achieve the results you want. The best thing about this is if you follow the steps exactly you can achieve great success in a short period of time. Kindle is a great example of a system which I used to earn passive income.
You can use the same system and once you have created your book you will earn a passive income every month. I can vouch for this as I have not added any extra books to my portfolio for the last 2 months and I have consistently earned around $2000 a month which still blows me away.
Steps by Step
The steps to start will be small and you don’t have to take the huge leap of faith, it isn’t required anymore. If you’re limited for time, you can work on your new venture for only an hour a day or even 30 minutes if you are really pressed for time. That small amount of effort is progress all on its own and will get you to where you want to be quicker than you think.
On your first try your progress will be small, but the more you do the task the more efficient you will become and the quicker you will do it. You will at some point be able to double or even triple the amount of things you do in the same amount of time, it is really amazing how you can progress.
A lot of people are scared to waste their time, and rightly so! If you only have limited time to work on something you don’t want to be wasting your time doing something which isn’t going to have any benefit to you. That is why you should always follow someone who has been there and done it, like myself :). Taking the right course is crucial to the speed and success you have. That is why you should take a few things into consideration:
How recent is the success of their students?
How recently have students recorded a testimonial?
Remember a business model ages and so do courses.
Is there any public figure you trust who recommends that course?
These are some sure fire way things you can do to save yourself a lot of time and energy.
Does it Matter Your Interested?
This is a dividing question that is asked by many people and it is a yes and a no answer because it is a bit of a double edge sword. I will give you my personal opinion on this.
While I am not 100% in love with Kindle publishing, I still love the act of researching a niche, having it written, putting the whole package together and making sure I have a quality product. I think it could be the fact that I like to see something which will benefit people who buy it as there is nothing worse than someone not gaining a personal value from their purchase.
Another factor that interests me is that I get to share my success, mistakes and problems that I have had during my journey and I can show where I improved upon them.
Why Now is The Right Time
The biggest thing a side business creates when it turns into your full-time income is freedom. Not only do you have the same amount of money as you had before, but you also have time. You can go wherever you want, when you want. You’re not restricted to a work time. If you feel like having a lie-in, you can, if you feel like working a half day, you can, if you feel like taking the whole day off, you can. You don’t have a boss to answer to, you are your own boss which is awesome.
On the flip side if you’re like me and want to work on building your businesses you can. You will be working more hours to increase your value, not someone else’s. I think I thrive from this and love the challenge. I know I am building to something bigger, that is why I am working so hard right now to achieve that. But on the flip side, if I decided I wanted to completely stop and take a 2-week holiday my publishing business, it would be constantly running in the background while I was away.
Saving money is getting harder and harder, items are becoming more expensive and relying on your government to give you a good pension can be a miss. By creating a side business not only are you giving yourself extra savings but you are also creating an income which will keep on going even when you’re sick.
So you started your side business and now you’re starting to gain traction. You’ve gone from making a few hundred dollars to earning more than your regular job, you have money saved and your ready to quit your job to pursue this full time. The potential you can achieve is now endless. You’ve gained a new skill which you can apply over and over again, just choosing different niches and topics to work on. You can even start a new business on something totally different.
Another possibility to earn extra money is mentoring people on what you have learned, which can start at anything from $100 an hour. I only mentor a few people due to time constraints but the people I do mentor, have found the sessions useful. Some people gained it free after purchasing through my link for Self Publishing Revolution Kindle course and then wanted more help. This is a small little earner with the students I have, if you’re interested, send me a message and we can arrange some lessons
Here’s Eddie’ testimonials of my mentoring.
I truly do believe that anyone can start a business themselves, it has never been easier and you shouldn’t be scared because getting over that fear is what the challenge is all about. If you follow the right path and follow the right people you will get there sooner than you think.
Hi, I'm Michael.
I'm a former Muay Thai fighter. After finishing my fighting career I wasn't quite sure what to do so I tried many different businesses.
Kindle publishing and blogging appealed to me the most. I loved the process and businesses so I became fully involved and I've never looked back.
