Some people are quite apprehensive when it comes to starting an online business. And, that is totally natural, given the fact that many people don’t fully understand or even realize the true benefits of owning an online business. As it relates to my career, starting an online business is the single best decision that I have ever made. It is my since hope that after reading this article you will begin to understand and realize just how simple it really is and what an amazing opportunity exists for you to begin taking the next steps towards creating your own.

Family

If you are anything like me, you have a family with children and want to be there for every single moment of their lives. At one point in my career, I was working 10 to 12 hour days.  Most days, my children were asleep when I left in the morning and asleep when I got home at night.  I was unable to make it home in time to catch the children for dinner or to read a book with them at night. It hit me one day that my children were growing up so fast and I actually missed so much precious time from working extensive hours. It’s ironic how hard we work to provide for our families, yet we may not get to enjoy the fruits of our labor together as a family unit.

As a result of starting an online business, I actually created my own opportunities and controlled my own schedule where now, I can be there for my children. If you are finding difficulty balancing work, perhaps becoming your own boss is your best option.  Remember, the internet doesn’t operate on a fixed schedule and it never sleeps.  So, you can work when you want, from wherever you want, for however long you want.

Time

Another reason why starting an online business is the best decision is simply because of: time. Right now, millions of people are wasting their time every single day when at work. They are trading their time for a paycheck.  Yes, these people are making money to live; however, they are not using their time wisely. When you start an online business, you can unlock and unveil a whole new perception of time that you never realized existed. With an online business, you can do anything you desire since your business, your primary income, stems from a laptop. As a result, you can travel with your family and work on the beach or get comfy on the couch with a cup of coffee and work.

Productivity

Sometimes, when at work, people are not as effective or productive as they can be. In fact, many people prefer to do as little work as possible and dragging it out for the entire day. In my opinion, that is not the way it should be. I believe you should be passionate about and love what you do. When you start your own online business, you realize that you are your own boss, the creator, and mastermind behind everything. There is an added sense of pride and passion that fuels you and fuels the business.  You find that you productivity is significantly enhanced and you try to do as much as you can possibly do each and every day.

Fulfillment

Many people that work from 9-5 are struggling absolutely do not find fulfillment in the work place. Reason being, they are not necessarily doing what they love, but rather doing what they have to do to get by and pay the bills. When I started my online businesses, there was a sudden urge and fire that was fueled with creativity and passion. For one of the first times in my life, I felt fulfilled in what I was doing. Let me tell you, there is no other feeling than completely fulfillment.  I choose what products I wish to promote.  I choose what hours I want to work.  I choose the location of my office whether my home office, by the pool, from a hotel room, or from the beach.  I choose what topics to write blogs about.  It is complete control and complete fulfillment.

Income

One of the main reasons why starting an online business is the best decision is because you have complete control of your income bracket. For so many people, they allow for their job or boss to be the dictator of how much money they can make. They struggle to for the next promotion to climb the corporate ladder and play the corporate politics.  When you start an online business, you can literally choose how much you wish to make. Do you want a website or business that simply generates a side or supplemental income of $1,000 a month? Do you want 10 websites that generate $500 a month? The best part is that you are the boss and financial planner at the same time.
