Picture this… you’re soaking up the sun on a white-sand beach, or perhaps skiing down a pristine snow-covered slope. This is the life! And you’re thinking… it feels like I’ve won the lottery. Later, back in your spacious suite, you pull out the laptop, connect to the Internet and voila… you’re in business. What? This isn’t how it works for you? It could be.
We’ve been there… whether it was the breathtaking mountains of Whistler, B.C. or Banff, Alberta… or the lush wine country in California… we’ve enjoyed all there was to offer and still kept in touch with our online business.
It is so cool having a business that focuses on e-courses, e-learning, online videos, or any other kind of online web presentation. The logistical freedom is liberating.
The Internet can be accessed almost anywhere. Granted, if you are in the deep jungles of Borneo searching for a rare frog it may not work, but those are the times when you are really “getting away from it all”. By making use of the Internet’s accessibility you can create your products and market them while you are virtually anywhere in the world.
No longer does owning your own business mean that you are tied down. It doesn’t have to keep you stuck at home, never being able to take vacations. Seriously, isn’t that the reason you would want to start your own business in the first place… the freedom?
So… start by thinking… how can I take something I am passionate about and turn it into a business that will lend itself to online products or services? Then, of course, you will have to do the market research to ensure that enough people will want to buy what you have to offer. Once you’ve established a market and have come up with products that people will pay for, you either create the products yourself or outsource it to someone else. Then market like crazy.
We know that we’ve seriously condensed and generalized the whole process. There are numerous courses, books and websites dedicated to each part of creating a business that operates online… study, learn, do it, make mistakes, do it some more, and above all… enjoy the journey.
Enjoying the journey, the freedom of doing business online, is to us the best part. You can do it from anywhere, and anytime you want. The structure of being at a specific location during specific times of the day is a thing of the past… move your business online and liberate yourself!
