There are a lot of elements to one’s life and those may include priorities such as a day job, family responsibilities, etc. At some point you may feel that you have ‘spare’ time in which you might try to start an online business. (think of all that time you spend surfing the net or socializing– it could be put to better use!)
It may be a very advantageous thing at any time if you are able to do a little research and set something up that runs more or less passively to earn income for you. However, then again, after you get it half way there, it just may not be the right time now. This could be that unexpected things happen in your life that you don’t have time, or even that you realize it will take some time to develop your business.
That’s too bad, but it doesn’t mean you have wasted your time or other resources. Save everything you have done in a file in your email account or a Word doc, and even a backup in hard copy. You never know when the ‘right time’ will come and you can see your way clear to go back to what you started.
So the point is not to ever give up. If you have an idea or you have a desire to start a business online, then don’t just forget about it. You never know how much it could be worth to you both tangibly and intangibly. Remember all the famous huge companies that started in somebody’s basement! This can be the same for you.
With all that said, it would be a real good idea if you could make starting an online business a top priority maybe 3rd in line. This is because almost everyone can always use extra money. Income from an an online business is often referred to as ‘passive’. This by no means indicates there is never any work to do or that you don’t have to be engaged in your business.
However it does mean that you don’t have to be there 24/7 or 9 to 5 – It means that your business is running once you have set up a website and/or affiliate program. Your ads are running on the Internet and don’t require your constant intervention. Everything is open for business 24/7 and has the ability to transact sales without you.
