Small Initial Financial Investment

In the online work world you can forget about the costs associated with a brick and mortar start up business. And if you don’t have a brick and mortar investment to be concerned with you also do not have monthly overhead costs pulling money out of your pocket. Wherever your computer is becomes your office. Your website is your storefront. As a result, your initial financial investment can be small when you select an online career.


A Portable Career

You are probably someone who enjoys working, but have always wanted more freedom and flexibility in your life. Online careers have the power to give you that freedom and flexibility that you have previously only dreamed of. All you need is an internet connection and a laptop and you can manage your business. You can do your job from anywhere in the world at any time of day.


Part-Time to Full-Time

Few other careers enable you to start working on a par-time basis and grow your work into a full-time basis. That’s one of the luxury’s associated with an online career. You build your new career on your own timeline. Since your start-up costs are minimal you are not looking at a lengthy time to recoup them. You chart your own course and when you are ready to commit full-time to your online career, it’s your decision to do so.


Global Customer Base

What could be better than having a global customer base. This is the type of customer base that allows your business to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Online careers enable you to set your business up on autopilot, so your business works will you sleep. You have the ability to create something once, make it active and it will continue working for you around the clock to generate income.


The Freedom Lifestyle

Working online has been referred to as the freedom lifestyle. That’s based upon all the reasons noted above plus your ability to be your own boss and create your own work schedule. You have the ability to design your day and create the lifestyle you have previously only dreamed of creating.


But there are a few more things to consider before you leave the starting gate.


  1. How much time can you devote to creating your new career? Your time will be split between learning new skills and applying those skills in your online work activities.
  2. How much money do you have to invest in your new career? While your investment is less than with a traditional brick and mortar business, there is still your investment in yourself to learn what’s required to succeed online. This includes such things as training, marketing and advertising costs.
  3. Have you identified your long-term goal? This is a mandatory step you cannot eliminate. Without a goal you will have no direction. You need to decide what you are trying to achieve.


Once you can answer these 3 questions, you’ll be ready to take the next step in beginning your online career.
