I love being an online entrepreneur.
You make the rules, decide your own hours, work from wherever you want and choose who you want to work with.
You can also choose what interests you most in the world and create a business that is related to that.
With that business you can add unbelievable value to your customers.
You can feel like you really are making a difference to your clients, even the world at large.
There really are so many benefits to being an online entrepreneur
I define an entrepreneur as somebody who creates massive value for other people. Mark Victor Hansen
Almost every day, I talk with people who want to start their own online businesses dreaming of being an online entrepreneur.
The internet presents us with unique opportunities. In fact the internet has changed the world. You can take advantage of the opportunities and go online and create a business around your passions.
You know there must be more to life than you’re finding right now, being caught in the rat race, doing a meaningless dead end job is not the way you want things to be. Well I believe that nobody needs to settle for just that.
You can seek your independence from the rat race.
A few years ago, I stood in the same shoes. I wanted something different. I wanted to transform my life, but I didn’t know what I wanted.
I’ve been stuck in a job I began to hate, and I felt imprisoned, trapped doing work that bored me where I didn’t feel I was making a significant difference.
I had gone through the worst period of my life. I lost my home, went through bankruptcy, had a major eye operation losing a significant amount of vision in my right eye, went through the emotions of my wife leaving me, her and my youngest daughter returning to London, and then suffered from a period of intensive headaches. All this in a three year period.
Those times were the worst I had ever experienced.
In fact they were like living hell.
Luckily I rose above it all, although I have to admit it wasn’t easy. The solution has been one of the most therapeutic, empowering, brilliant things in my life.
I started on a brand new career, building an online business, starting from scratch, and I look at my success now and think to myself how blessed I am.
I created my own dream job and had the support of two fantastic people, Neil and Rachel, without whom none of what I’ve achieved would have been possible.
When I began I really didn’t know what I wanted to do apart from doing something different where I could help others change their lives in some way. I have had to be incredibly proactive, making many changes on the way, and refused to give up, believing I would find the answers. And I did!
If you are at the point where you want to go in a new direction, I don’t want you to give up on the idea, I want you to go for it with all you have. I know the rewards are worth it.
Taking action is the only way to success and persistence and tenacity is key.
It’s better to start working on your idea and take things from there, work hard, be willing to learn, you will succeed on the path to being an online entrepreneur.
