What is The best business for YOU?
I’m not going to send you to my business idea and tell you that’s the best one for you (unless it is).
As I look over the landscape and see so many types of businesses online, I notice some patterns and niches that seem to be growing.
Ultimately, I love businesses that pay people well and free up more of their time.
I love food and cooking.
I think about opening a restaurant or food truck sometimes.
Then I look at the time requirements to run a business like that and I think I would hate it eventually because it’s hard to leave and I value my freedom of time more than I want a restuarant.
I love affiliate marketing for that reason.
I think it’s the best business model for someone beginning in the internet business and marketing arena because half the work is already done for you.
The products and sales pages are already there.
You just have to learn how to get the right audience in front of the offers and they buy.
Plus, it can be completely automated and work while you sleep and do other things.
That doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.
Maybe you like to make really cool wooden furniture or knit socks or something like that.
Maybe it’s just you and you want to knock out a few pieces a month and make some extra bucks while keeping the operation small so you can keep working yourself in the shop.
If that’s what you love, do that!
In my mind, you are living your dream.
It doesn’t matter that it’s not my dream or what the world says should be your dream.
What I see often is people’s dreams getting hijacked because someone else says “this is what you should want”
If you want to open a salon, then do it.
If you want to make fishing lures, or teach Tae Kwon do, or paint portraits of successful entrepreneurs, (call me, I would love to pose) or whatever it is that gets you excited, then do that.
But, if you really want to be happy and feel fulfilled, then start today to do whatever that dream is.
What is going to change between today, tomorrow and next year?
One certainty is that you will be older and you will either be following your dream or not.
Don’t give up on it and don’t let anyone else tell you what it should be.
I couldn’t see how my business was all going to come together in the beginning, but I knew I wanted more time and I wanted to travel.
I kept moving toward even when it got hard and scary at times.
I have more time and I travel more.
I’m going to keep at it so that I can have even more of those things.
In the mean time, I get excited to see other people doing the same things with their lives, so I’m helping as many people as I can along the way to get what they want as well.
There’s going to be hard days along the way, but you’re going to have those even if you’re not going after what you want.
So, don’t give up.
I know you can do it because if someone can do it, then anyone can.
I’m doing it and I personally know hundreds of others that are doing it too.
Thanks for reading.
