I lounged in my cargo shorts and soft cotton t-shirt with a coffee in my hand, my iPad open to the sports section. After a minute I notice movement out of the corner of my eye. I look over to see my pool guy unloading his supplies. I glance at my watch, Monday 10 a.m., guess it’s time to head to the office for a couple hours. As I grab my keys and head out I kiss my wife on the cheek and make her a promise to be home no later than 3 o’clock.
All the rumors you’ve heard about owning and running an internet based business are true.
I DO work in my pj’s sometimes.
I DO only need to work a couple of hours a day.
I DO have the freedom to work on whatever projects I want and delegate everything else away.
I DO have the flexibility to make my own schedule.
I DO wake up on my own, never to the sound of an alarm.
I DO enjoy not having a boss that I have to answer to or explain why I’m coming in late or leaving early.
As far as jobs go, mine’s pretty sweet. Running an internet business is by far the best way to make a living and live stress free. As far as businesses go:
It has high margins and low overhead.
It allows me to spend more time with my family.
It brings in money to my account even while I sleep.
It doesn’t require a college education or years and years of on the job training.
So if the ultimate goal is to make enough money so that you can live the kind of life you’ve always wanted, then I have to ask why haven’t you started an online business of your own yet?
I know this is some heavy stuff for a Labor Day Monday morning, but if now isn’t the right time to talk about becoming wealthy, then when is?
There is never going to be the exact right moment to start a new business. You’ll always have something on your plate that prevents you from moving forward…a car loan…an upcoming wedding…not enough savings…kid going to college next year. If you wait for the right time, you’ll be waiting forever because you’ll never find the exact right time to do anything.
Too often we focus on the reasons NOT to do something when we are afraid. But I want today to be different. Today I want you to focus on all the reasons why right now is the exact right moment to start your own internet business and start down the path to becoming wealthy.
If you think about it, just for a minute, I’m sure you can come up with at least one reason why you should do it. Let’s start with an easy one. Answer this next question honestly…
Do you love what you do? If you are like most people the answer is a big fat NO! Most people HATE their jobs. I bet you’re not looking forward to the rest of the week. It’s only Monday but you are already dreading the work week ahead of you. Plus can you imagine doing this job for the rest of your life?
You don’t have to. We get this one life. Do you want to spend most of it doing something you hate? Something that brings you absolutely no joy? Instead why not spend your days lounging in comfy clothes, working from the comfort of your house for just a few hours a day. Internet businesses provide the ideal money making opportunities that allow you to make great money while living the kind of life you’ve always wanted.
Not to mention the amount of stress you’ll be able to let go of once you do take back control of your life and schedule. Let’s face it working for someone else in today’s corporate world is stressful. You constantly worry about deadlines and projects and that pain in the butt three cubicles over who you know wants your job. Plus the corporate world isn’t exactly the spitting image of stability these days. Plenty of people are still getting laid off or having their hours reduced. Not to mention the lack of meaningful raises that are being given out.
The idea of a secure job is a thing of the past. Now, unless you are the one in charge, you are at risk of being let go. Rather than take the risk of being the one they let go, why not start your own business.
Still not convinced? Well let’s talk more about the lifestyle working for an internet business provides. Tired of a long commute and continually rising gas prices? Work from home! Forget leaving your house 45 minutes before you have to be at your desk. Now you can roll out of bed, not to the sound of an alarm, but whenever you wake up and walk the ten steps to your office!
Want to move to a different part of the country, closer to family, or where the cost of living is lower? You can. Buy that ranch out West that you’ve always wanted. Or live in the hippest downtown neighborhood and forget about the traffic woes because you won’t be commuting anymore. An internet based business allows you to work from literally anywhere!
Owning an internet business provides you with the flexibility to do what you want. Take your kid to school in the morning without worrying about coming in late to the office, schedule a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon, or go to the gym in the middle of the day when it’s least crowded. The degree to which you take back control of your life when you are the one in charge should not be minimized. This is often the most rewarding factor of owning your own business.
So if not now, when? When do you want to get started on living the kind of life you’ve always wanted to. Will tomorrow be more conducive? Next week? Next year?
Don’t let this Monday be just like every other Monday. Make this Monday, the start of the week that you took control back of your life.
I look forward to working with you.
