Amazon was built in Jeff Bezos garage, originally an online bookstore. In 2018 Amazon did $141.4 billion in sales. Bezos used his garage to store products. This is no longer needed, unless you want too.

Flexible Hours

This can also be a hazard, your dedication to this work is up to you. Do you have the determination to make this happen? You have to produce articles on a regular bases to get good rankings in the search engines, like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

You can be a full time worker for someone else, regardless of the hour of the day. When at home you can build a website attracting customers to read your product reviews or about the latest diet recipe. Maybe share your ideas about a hobby.

Build While Working

An online business can be built while you are working for someone else. You can do this while working a full time job, is there a couple hours during the day you could spend learning to build a website and a niche to write about?

With a job you don’t have to worry about how you will meet the monthly bills, while building you online store.

    I was very determined to have an online business. After a long time in which I searched for a lot of information on the Internet, I found the Wealthy Affiliate platform and since then my life has changed.

      As a business owner you have to establish a schedule for working your business. There is no one to make sure you are working, but yourself. There are several times I should have fired the guy in the mirror.

  3. Thanks for writing this very interesting article on starting your own business. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently as I have chronic back pain which is starting to affect my ability to work so I need to find a way to supplement my income.

    I’ve tried things like selling on eBay in the past and made some small amounts of money but not even close to being enough. I’ve seen many people talking about affiliate marketing. Is this really a potential way to earn good money online and how long does it take to create an affiliate marketing business?



    • Serious affiliate marketers can make six figures per year, this might take two to three years to establish. This is still better than a brick and mortar business, which can take five plus years before seeing a profit.

      Successful affiliate marketers go through several ideas (niches), before finding success. You need to narrow your niche as far down as possible.

      My son follows someone whose niche is four wheeling with Toyota FourRunner’s, he has 500K subscribers, converting into cash every month through subscriptions to news letters. 

      Selecting a good affiliate program is also important. Look for established programs with a track record of paying commissions.

  4. I agree with you: if you’re looking to start your own business (and who doesn’t want to be their own boss in this day and age?) then doing it online is probably the most straightforward, least risky option for most people. For me, it’s the flexibility to run the same business from anywhere plus the ability to keep the “day job” going while building a side income which hopefully one day will become my main source of income. Inspiring article, thanks for sharing.

    • My mentor traveled for a few years in his pickup and travel trailer, with his dog. Moving from one RV park to the next, ones with WiFi. Visiting National Parks all over the United States. A few years ago he bought a house in San Diego, California, one of the more expensive cities.

      Most people have several hours every night they can write articles, instead of watching TV or playing video games. Affiliate marketing can be done while holding a full time job.

      Another advantage is the tax benefits one can have having your own business. Talk with a Tax Lawyer first, but you can use space in your house, computer, cost of memberships and other cost as tax write offs.
