The world has changed, is changing, and will continue to change – whether we like it or not. That is reality.
The only question is – what are YOU going to do about it.
I strongly suggest that you learn to adapt and that you do that fast. Then you can begin to take advantage of every option you have that makes sense for you right now.
While lots of bloggers and other people like to continuously poo poo the idea of having ANY job at all – I am not one of them – and I do think there is and will continue to be a place for more typical jobs in many industries for many years to come. And that is a GOOD thing!
Yet at the same time blindly relying on any single job alone for all of your income needed to support you and your family is just plain stupid at this point in time, and will be even more so in the coming years.
So – a job can serve a purpose and it can be used to your advantage if and when you need to have a job – and millions upon millions do and will.
Even when you are self-employed and own and operate your own business of some kind – it is NOT a good idea to rely only on ONE source of income!
The idea I really want you to grasp here and now is that you now need MULTIPLE income production opportunities – or income streams, or whatever you want to call it so long as you get the underlying main idea. The main idea is that the world is and will always be unstable when it comes to working and making money.
Technology is both good and bad at the same time and as it continues to disrupt the world economy and all industries faster and faster there is no certainty about any single income production method. Anything and everything can change in the blink of an eye these days – and it does.
One day a business or an entire industry is doing great – the next day it is obsolete and dead, and soon to be gone – all except an entry in the history books and perhaps a page or so on Wikipedia.
The 3 Reasons You Should Have an Online Business Now
- Additional Source of Income – This gives you more security and a bit of a safety net if something happens to your current source of income, and it will buy you time to replace that income if something does happen to it without so much of a crisis for you. Companies fire people, they lay people off and they go out of business. No matter what the reason – you can be let go with or without cause and with or without any warning. So consider this your warning and your wake up call!
- Learn Additional Skills – Learning and practicing new things can you do better even in your current work and your personal life too. When you decide to start an online business you are going to need to learn and then do a LOT of stuff – most of which can be very valuable to you in other areas of life.
- Flexibility – An online business of your own will help you make money online on your own terms. You do have to work and you must put in the work needed on a regular and consistent basis to achieve anything that matters, but when you work and where you work is up to you! You can wake up early and put in a couple of hours or so before your family is even up or before you have to head off to work elsewhere yourself. It can also be done at lunch, or late in the evening when everyone else has gone to bed. Anytime you have a few spare minutes you can be writing posts and creating content or posting links in the content you already created. The possibilities are endless. Find and use the spare time that is normally wasted and turn it into income production time and make more money!
What Business Should You Start?
That question is going to have different answers for different people.
It really depends on you. What skills do you already have, what experience do you have, what do you like and what do you want to do that is also potentially profitable now – or that you are willing to go take some training classes and learn?
It also depends on how much time you have available to devote to your new business – and it depends on how much money you have available to you to put into your business.
The great thing about online businesses of every kind is that they are much easier and much less expensive to start compared to other brick and mortar more traditional business types of all kinds are.
Mainly you will need a computer of some kind (laptops are great but even a smartphone alone can get you started, and beyond that, the sky is the limit) and some apps and online platforms that will help you build and run your business.
For example, you will likely need a website domain name which you will have to buy (Under $20 typically) and you will need site/blog hosting services which will run you a few more bucks.
There are even ways to get started completely for FREE!
Just keep in mind – that is just to get started with – but you will eventually need to pay for hosting services and other apps which will help you build your business better and make more money.
