What is your why? Why make money online?

If you would start your online business today – what would be the reason for that?

In today’s blog I want to talk about the “why” of internet marketing. Just so you know – I’m probably not that much far ahead of you when it comes to running an online business. I’ve been doing it for nearly 3 years PART TIME. I still have a 9-5 – maybe like you.

But I have been learning new stuff and implementing all this time. And I have come a long way. 3 years ago I made a promise to myself that I would not stop learning and implementing until I was successful and in the place were I want to be. That place is my freedom.

Without a boss and not having to worry about money. But that’s not just my why. I want more time with my daughter which lives 400 km away from me.

I want to travel more. I want to pay off debt. I don’t want to worry about my financial situation. I don’t want to worry about becoming a pensioner – as a matter of fact I want to build my own pension! I don’t want anybody to “own” me.

And I want to help others on my way achieving this.

In short – I want probably the same as most people – freedom. 10 years ago I started dabbling around with making money online. I didn’t know my “why”. I didn’t know why I wanted to make money. And of course I didn’t. I had no clue. But 3 years ago I really committed.

And I have generated thousands of dollars online with my own products and also by doing affiliate marketing. But not enough. I’m in the middle of scaling my business to the point of earning my freedom. While I’m doing that I’m trying to share my experience and what I’m learning.

The first thing YOU have to decide is your “why”. I’m telling you – it’s the most important part of starting your online business. If you don’t know why you are doing this – then there is no point. If you find out that you want to create a better life for  your family – then that is your drive.

That is your committment. That’s your “why”. It will make things easier for you. One of the things that has grown my business is investing in knowledge. I’ve invested thousands in coaching and various programs.

But you know what? Not all valuable knowledge cost money.

I just got this book for free from a successful internet millionaire.

I finished it yesterday – it took me 3 days – it’s THAT good. I firmly believe this book can change anybodies life. And it’s FREE! No – it’s not an ebook. I’ts actually a physical book. I know I’m going to be coming back to this book over and over.

Just wanted to let you know about it. But I’m off to my drawing board.

Yes – even though I do a 9-5….I use my free time on my online business.

It’s my passion.
