If you had asked me that question 5 years ago, I would have either said “Probably,” or “I have no idea.” What a difference those years have made.
Always one to be drawn to the personal growth and spiritual sections of a book store, in 2013, I stumbled across a little book called, “The Secret.” Ever heard of it? 😉
Of course, it is a well-known book, but not by me until one fateful day.
What came from that experience as quite simply that I began to understand that I could truly have, do and be anything that I wanted in this world.
And when I began my list of what that would look like, the world of online entrepreneurship opened up to me.
It’s not that I wrote “I want to be an online entrepreneur,” on my wish list.
It’s that I wrote things down that I didn’t know HOW I would bring about. And yet, I was so excited by the possibility of these things, that I let the vision carry me into what would be the right paths. It so happened that working online became really clearly, the most wonderful path for me – and may be for you to.
Is working online a pipedream?
Only if you think so.
What did my initial “I can have, do and be anything” list contain?
Well, I decided I wanted to be a coach. Check.
I decided I wanted to be a best-selling author. Half-check. I’m an author and best-selling is still coming to fruition.
I decided I wanted to be a speaker. Check. Sweated it out at Toastmaster’s for that one.
I decided I wanted to be rich. And again, that part is still coming to fruition.
I decided I wanted to be a mother of two. And again, check. Baby #2 was born earlier this year. Life is sweet.
When you begin to understand your power in this world (Ask and it is given) then you begin to operate from a place of possibility. And that can be liberating and downright thrilling.
So, yes, way led onto way and online entrepreneurship became my bag. Why?
Because of the perks, of course!
Working online and building an online business can provide you with:
- A laptop lifestyle
- Freedom to travel
- Flexibility in your schedule
- The ability to automate some or many of your business processes
- No income ceiling
- The ability to reach people worldwide
- The ability to create what you want and get it to market (books, online courses, products)
- Freedom to choose your own priorities (for me, being a stay at home mom and homeschooling)
- Leverage to reach thousands, or even millions and affect many lives for the better
- Success you can build at your own pace (work 100 hours a week or 8 hours a week)
- Self-empowerment that you can build a business based on your own values and drive – not default to the status quo if you don’t want to
- Adding multiple revenue streams
- Leveraging yourself through tiered services (free, to inexpensive, to moderately priced to high-end offerings)
- Value your time most highly of all aspects of your life
And that’s not all. It can be invigorating to step into this lifestyle and step OUT of the traditional 8-5, commute, stress and usurpment of your time and energy.
Don’t get me wrong. 8-5’s can be valuable. And for many online entrepreneurs, they keep their 8 to 5 while they build out their online business on evenings and weekends. There are perks to a regular salary, too.
But if you’re reading this, chances are strong that you want something else… something different, something better.
What would it mean to you to be able to work online?
To Coach, online.
Sell products, online.
Lead workshops, online.
Give advice, online.
Document your travel around the world, online.
Create tutorials, online.
Share your recipes, online.
Working online is only a pipedream if you believe it is. I used to not know. I used to not think about it. I used to be completely in the dark about this entire world. And yet, once I found it, I knew the implications.
It is possible to work online. My first year selling on Amazon was a six-figure year. That is the truth. And at one point that year, I was spending many weeks living the elusive 4-Hour Work Week. (Thank you Tim Ferriss) It IS possible.
What would you want to create? How would you want to serve? What lights you up?
