One of the very first considerations of someone beginning to think about working online is what it is that you truly want, is it more time or more money?
Although almost all of us, believe that we want more money in order to live a better lifestyle, the reality is we have all been sold a mistaken conclusion that we truly need more money to live a better life.
The fact is, we believe that having more money, leads to a better lifestyle with more time. The reality is, when we get on that hamster wheel and start working towards a bigger, greater income, we find that the wheel keeps spinning faster and it becomes harder to step off, and step away objectively.
Most people who have chosen to build an online income, do so for the freedom of time that it allows and the ability to do something that they enjoy. The financial rewards become secondary to lifestyle choices.
If this makes sense, then you’ve come to the right place.
If you cannot understand this, and cannot believe that anyone would want to live this way, then it is highly likely that you are more comfortable in your 9-5 job with an assured income. Do know, that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Whichever the choice is that makes you happiest, is the correct choice for you.
How long will it really take to build a decent income working online?
A decent income is something that has to be defined by what you intend to spend your income on.
The bulk majority of people who choose to work online, do so, not so much because they are driven by the prospects of vast amounts of money (although yes, that is a possibility) but because working online allows them the flexibility to dictate when and how much they want to work.
It allows them to freedom to spend time with their families and the ability to work from anywhere in the world that there is an internet connection (which is pretty much anywhere in the world).
So how much work fun does it take to start an online business?
This is a relative term. We have in our society built up quite a negative view of the word ‘work’. What if it were to be replaced with ‘fun’, how much work does it take if you are doing something that you truly love doing?
If you are new to the ideas of working online, then it may take you a while to come round to the idea and potential that it truly is possible to earn a living doing something that you absolutely enjoy.
It may be that you might have to redefine and find out again, what you joys and passions are.
