So this year is coming to an end.
Personally, I had a great year.
I made more money than ever before and I traveled more than ever before.
So my year has been good but it's just the beginning for me.
I have better and bigger goals for 2020.
I am writing this on the plane from Hong Kong on my way to Seoul, South Korea.
My mission for this year is not done yet and I have a lot of work to do before I wrap this year up.
The next few weeks are about looking back at what I did and where I went wrong.
Its also about setting new goals for 2020.
But this post is not about me.
This post is something I noticed in the ocean of negativity online over the last few months.
I noticed people complaining about money, their jobs or the lack of a job.
I get it!
The world can be a hard place.
And when you don't have a job or stream of income things go dark pretty quickly.
One guy in particular stands out for me.
I was on Facebook a platform that I try to limit as much as possible.
As I was on my news-feed I saw a post that got my attention.
The guy who posted is someone I know from back in my university days.
He was posting a post about how shit his life is.
It's one of those crying for attention posts pretending to not be one.
He is was complaining about missing out on another job after getting his job interview canceled.
The funny thing about this guy is that every time I go on social media this guy has a long post about his life.
And when I click on his profile I can see this is something he does every single day.
What does it tell me?
It tells me he has time, a lot of time.
Time to complain and make Facebook posts.
This tells me he is not serious about getting out of his current position.
But I'm not going to go into this negativity mindset today.
We all know negativity is everywhere.
The reason I tell you about this guy is this:
The Biggest Business Opportunity In Human History Is Happening Right Now.
As we talk it is going down.
What is this opportunity?
It's not a mystery!
Yes, the modern internet has been around for about 30 years.
In the bigger picture it is like day 1.
The problem with this opportunity is that millions of people have bought into the idea that it's too late to get into the game.
They fell for the negative stories.
“An online business will never work.”
“It's too late to start an online business.”
“It's a scam.”
I'm here to tell you that this is the biggest hoax that I have heard in a long time.
Right now is the best time in human history to start an online business.
Sure there will always be times when you get in first and make a lot of money.
Like the guys who got in first with Facebook and Twitter.
But the same thing will be said a year or 5 years from now if you don't get some skin in the game now.
I live a comfortable independent lifestyle which allows me to travel the world and work from anywhere with an internet connection.
Was it easy to get to the point to where I am now?
No of course not.
But no business is easy.
However, the internet is one of the easier business options around.
Why Is A Online Business Better?
- You don't need massive amounts of money to get into the game.
You can start with no or very little money.
You can start with as little as $100 to get yourself into the door of the business.
If you have no money then work part-time or full time.
And then build your business in your free time before and after your normal work hours.
Save money and invest more into your business as your cash flow gets stronger.
Eventually, you can leave your job and go full-time into your internet business.
- The Internet gives everyone access to a Massive Market.
I thought about this yesterday when I was traveling on the subway in Hong Kong.
I was looking around in the train and everyone was looking at their phones or listening to something with their phones.
People are plugged in.
People are consuming information on a scale never seen before in human history.
What Do You Need?
- You need a Laptop, Phone or Tablet.
All the information people consume is being accessed with devices like phones, laptops or Tablets .
You want to put yourself on their screens and for you to do that you will need to get a phone or a laptop.
If you don't have a laptop or desktop then start with your phone.
If you don't have anything then go work at the library.
You can create a free Gmail account and start using their free writing software and YouTube creator's studio to get started.
- Internet Connection.
The internet connection is obvious.
If you don't have a good connection then go to a coffee shop and buy a coffee.
You can sit there all day and work.
- You need A Strong Drive To Succeed.
One thing that will make or break your success is your will to win.
You need a very strong desire to be successful and live your dreams.
I get it!
People like to talk a big game about their dreams but very few follow through.
The reality about business success is that in order for you to become successful you will need to become someone else.
That means someone who is self-disciplined and mentally tough.
If you don't have those qualities now then you can develop them like all other successful people.
The truth is that if you don't confront yourself with self-discipline you will fail.
What Are The Easiest Types Of Businesses To Get Into?
Some people would read some of my business options for the internet and laugh at the idea and think: “That would never work.”
But its funny for me because I see restaurants, bars, and many other businesses fail.
But people still start those same types of businesses and become successful at it.
For some reason when an internet business fails its proof that most internet businesses will fail.
The truth is that if you do it right you can make a lot of money online.
And even if you don't become a millionaire you can still make enough to quit your regular job and live off your internet business.
And this means one very important thing: Freedom.
So let get into ways to start making money online.
- Start Writing Your Own Books.
Most people don't realize that we are now in a knowledge economy.
People are consuming knowledge like never before in history.
By writing books in the form of paperback, eBooks and audio-books you can start a very profitable business.
Last month alone I made $11 000 on audio-books alone. This was all passive income.
That does not include all my other streams of income.
I write my own books but I know many successful businesses that outsource their books to ghostwriters and make a lot of money.
So even if you are not a writer you can still make a lot of money in self publishing.
- Start A Blog.
Blogging is still a great way to make a lot of money.
It's also a great way to share with the world your creativity and knowledge absolutely free.
And at the same time use your blog as a platform to sell your products and services.
Setting up a blog is easy and cheap.
Use social media to drive traffic to your blog.
You can even start a business without a blog just using social media and leveraging affiliate marketing without your own products.
The key is to provide value to your customers ,and that can be with a blog, social media or both of them
- Start A YouTube Channel.
For many people video blogging is the best way to get started.
If you have a phone you can start shooting videos right now and start building your channel and eventually monetize your channel.
People I know have built 6 figure businesses by shooting videos on their phones.
- Start A Consulting/Coaching Business.
If you have specialized knowledge in an area you can start an online coaching or consulting business.
You can get clients worldwide using Skype and start charging a lot of money for your time and knowledge.
If you don't think you are knowledgeable then start learning about the area you want to sell.
Most people don't read a lot.
If you can read about a topic and write about your specific perspective about that topic……. then you can sell your perspective on that topic.
You package your information to help your clients and people will pay you for what you know.
The key is providing value and solving a problem for your client.
If you are into self-development, finance, law, sports or any other topic then you can make money from what you know.
It's Not A Get Rich Quick Scam
If you want to get rich overnight then stop reading now and leave this blog.
I don't sell magic pills.
I share ideas that work.
They only work if you put in the work.
Will you be successful if you start an online business?
I don't know.
Some will make it but unfortunately, most fail.
Why do most fail?
Because most don't want it badly enough and won't do whatever it takes to win.
Most will give up after trying a few months and go back to their old lives that they hate.
But there will be a few that go all the way.
Those are the Kings that want to live free.
Winning in life is a conscious choice.
I want to end this by telling you one more time:
We have all been given the biggest blessing and curse in the history of this planet.
Its the greatest opportunity in human history.
The sad thing is most don't see it.
