Do you want to online?
That is what you’re looking to do, right? You’re looking to make money online? Let’s start with that. That, essentially, is the beginning of this journey.
Why do you want to make money online? You have your reasons for this. I can tell you what mine were and why I started my online business. I hated my job. It took me away from my family, and it caused me a lot of anxiety. The people I worked for were nice, but the company was just terrible. I couldn’t stand it!
I wanted more freedom. I wanted to be able to spend time doing things that mattered to me. I have a lot of people in my life that need me and that need my help. All the hours I spent behind the desk at my job were, in my mind, terribly wasted. Yes, I was making good money, but I knew there had to be a better way.
What is your why? Think long and hard about that, because keeping your why in the forefront of your mind will bring you a lot of energy and ambition to build your online business!
