What, you want to be wealthy?
What are you prepared to do? There is a demand which you may not be able to meet. Working on your own business can be a lot of fun but it is also very demanding. You may have to put in more hours than you would in a job initially. But once you get the ball rolling, it's all downhill from there.
The first thing you will have to do is write a plan. There is no use going into an online business for yourself if you have no idea how to start. There are a couple of requirements and a plan is one of them.
Work out how much income you need to make from your online business for you to leave your current place of employment. Then work out how many hours it will take for you to earn that income in a regular job.
Now that you have worked that out you need to find out what you are good at. Although everyone in business says to do something you are passionate at, I am saying do something you are good at. It may be your current work and how to make money online with it.
This is the interesting part, working how to make money from what you are good at. There are ways to work this out. Obviously, Google what it is you do and ask the questions you may have there.
If you are a writer, you could offer your services and monetise yourself through your services by offering books and writing aids on your website.
If you were a printer, you could align yourself with a printer and make a commission selling their products.
Being wealthy is also about your self-worth.
This is about attitude and whether you think you deserve to be wealthy. I know it took me a long time to get over this hurdle. I was a nickles and dimes person and that did not serve me well !
Once you start your own online business you will find your attitude changing because you will be learning so much. You will learn what works and what doesn't work. You will mold yourself to your customers and give them what they want. This is a skill worth developing. You will learn more about yourself than you ever knew was possible.
What are you waiting for?
This is the time for action. Now you need to know how to build a website, how to make money from it, even work out your niche even if you don't know what that is at the moment.
What is a niche?
A niche is a corner of the market: If you think of a market it could be the housing market, a niche would be laying floors. If you think of cars, a niche would be servicing the engine, if you think of house painting, a niche could be selling paint. So you get the idea?
