10 reasons why you should start an online business (and how to get started right now)

In this blog post and the related video I’m going to be telling you 10 reasons why you should start an online business and how to get started right now!

So why should you start an online business? Tell me what you think is the best reason in the comments below and let’s start, you know, a little interaction.

Okay, so jumping straight into it, reason number one why you should start an online business.

The current global situation with the covid-19 pandemic has made that the world is a very uncertain place right now.

Maybe your job’s in danger and you need a side hustle? Or maybe you need a plan B to replace your current job and income?

Maybe you’re an entrepreneur in a traditional bricks and mortar business which has been forced to close or maybe you need to move your business online?

Or maybe you work in hospitality or tourism and you’ve just lost your job altogether?

Either way there’s never been a better time than now to start an online business.

Reason number two why you should start an online business is because if you’re working for somebody else all that hard work you’re doing, all that professionalism you’re showing on a daily basis is going towards building somebody else’s dreams and not yours.

At the end of the month it doesn’t really matter whether you’ve worked your socks off or whether you’ve slacked off, you are only taking home the same wages.

And you’re taking home the same wages as somebody sitting next to you who might have done half as much work as you.

Does that sound fair to you because to me it doesn’t.

If I’m working hard and being super professional I want to see the fruits of my labour.

Now is that being selfish or is that just being astute? Why don’t you tell me in the comments below.

Reason number three why you should start an online business is so that you can stop commuting and gain something called geographical freedom.

If you decide to start your own online business then spending time and money on commuting to work would be a thing of the past.

You could work from home or if you wanted to you could go and live in Bali. Bali’s nice, even with the monkeys.

And all you need to run your business is an internet connection and a laptop.

Reason number four why you should start an online business is to start doing something that you love and that you’re passionate about. To start loving your work instead of just putting up with it because it’s secure and it pays the bills, even if you do hate it.

Reason number 5 why you should start an online business is so that you can stop selling your time for money.

So that you can take back your freedom and the control over your life, so that you are the one who decides how and when you work and how much you earn.

Also so that you can stop sacrificing doing the things you love and spending time with the ones that you love.

Reason number 6 why you should start an online business is so that you can get rid of this feeling of apathy you’ve got towards your life.

To stop feeling like you’re treading water, just going through the motions in life and get rid of those nagging doubts that surely there’s more to life than this and, is this really as good as it gets?

Reason number 7 why you should start an online business is related to number 6 and it comes down to you needing a fresh challenge. You know in your heart that you can do this, but you just don’t know where to start.

You know deep down that you can do anything you want if you just put your mind to it and any excuses or objections that you’re coming up with are just your brain’s way of trying to protect you from any undue stress. That’s its job after all.

But you can overcome these thoughts by training your brain, following your instincts more and surrounding yourself with like-minded people. Don’t let fear and limiting beliefs stop you from achieving your goals.

Maybe it’s time to push yourself a little bit outside of your comfort zone.

Reason number eight why you should start an online business is because you’re NOT too old to learn the necessary skills needed to succeed.

The simple truth is that with the right education and support anyone can do this. Even somebody whose first experience of technology was waiting 5 minutes for a computer game to load up on a cassette deck on a ZX spectrum. That’s a very old computer!

Reason number nine why you should start an online business is because if you never give it a go, you´re never gonna know if it’s right for you or not.

Reason number 10 why you should start an online business it’s because you CAN find the necessary time and money to invest in this if you really want it enough.

Don’t get me wrong I understand, most of the time you’re busy, knackered and skint. Most people are and starting an online business isn’t for everybody.

It takes patience, faith, courage, the ability to solve problems and bucket loads of hard work and determination to succeed, especially in the beginning. But this is time and money that you’re going to get back 10 or even 100 fold once you get set up.

Making passive income doing something that you enjoy and having control of your life.

If you don’t think that’s worth the sacrifice of working really hard for a few months and getting yourself an education, learning how to succeed online then stick to what you already know.

Monday to Friday, living for the weekends and holidays. Never having quite enough money or spend the time doing the things you love, being with the people you love. Counting the years until you can retire and finally start living……. Yay!

There is of course a very real alternative and you’ve probably guessed already what that is. Get an education in digital skills, learn how to market online and start your own online business.
