If you are here because you really want to start a business to escape your unfulfilling 9 to 5 job, as you desperately want the time freedom to live life on your own terms, then you’ve come to the right place.
I also assume that you probably don’t want to have to quit your job right away to achieve this – Job security is important, I get that.
Many are looking for realistic ways to start a business that they can do, without having to quit their day job right away. And I can gladly confirm that it’s possible to replace your job income, before leaving it and focusing on the business full time.
I can confidently say this because of today’s digital economy and how it has enabled me to start my online business venture; I would work on it in the evenings around my 40 hours a week as a Data Analyst.
What gave me the drive to make this change was not only to make money from the business, but I also wanted to do something truly fulfilling – waking up every day excited to work and not feel like it’s a constant drag like my 9 to 5 job.
Another reason was to do with how scared I was at the thought of being in this rat race for 40 more years before retiring!
Most people will give their “time for money” like this and end up living a life of regret, as there are many things more important to them in their life, such as spending time with family. Just think that we have been sacrificing so much of what we care about for a job that we have very little enthusiasm for. It’s insane!
After coming across YouTube videos where the likes of Dan Lok and Ryan Scribner highlighted this issue, it gave me this profound realization and opened my eyes to alternative ways of making money without having to trade my time for it – this is when they shed light on passive/leverage income that does not rely on personal time once we have put in the initial efforts to automate the process.
This process, in other words, is a type of online business that you would need to build that will make you money 24/7 and 365 days a year – you could quite literally be at work or be sleeping when this happens.
What kind of business can you run around your full-time job?
I didn’t know this to begin with, but one of my business mentors Stuart Ross made me aware that I should start with anything that is very product-driven and simple to carry out. It also has to be something that you have an affinity with and feel great about selling. It should be something that you can continually sell day after day and week after week without having to spend a lot of your own time dealing with customer service and support or even transactions.
Besides, it’s the furthest from the thing you want to do after 40-50 hours of work, to come home and deliver products that you’re selling.
So this begs the question, what business model can you start with?
Why do I recommend starting with affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is an amazing business model to start with when working around your day job. What you would be doing is selling other businesses’ products/services that you believe in and getting a commission in doing so. The beauty of this is that you don’t have to deal with any fulfillment or delivery of the product, but you just need to get the customers to the businesses and get them to buy based on your recommendations.
Most importantly, the number of products you can sell is unlimited and you can sell these products, again and again, 24/7 and 365 days a year – this is the automated process that I mentioned before.
Selling products with an E-commerce business
Another recommended business model is to sell physical products with an E-commerce business. This doesn’t require you to think of a unique product, but you can order existing products for the fraction of the cost and set up an automated selling system.
Amazon FBA is one amazing opportunity to help you do this and the best thing about it is that they deal with the processing of payments from customers, the packaging, delivery, and customer service.
Meanwhile, you will be focused on selling the products, marketing, and advertising them to help make those sales happen – this can be done by spending 1-2 hours a day around your day job.
Something to think about before you start
When you start, it may be challenging to make your first 10 sales or so online, but once you have done this you will be able to grow your business, as you pick up momentum after learning what works – this is when you can sell the same products many times over – you will also learn how many sales you need to make each week and each month to finally replace your income to quit your day job – after which you can continue to grow your business to meet new income goals in the future.
It’s also important to understand that results vary from person to person – some may take 1 month to make 10 sales, but for others, it may take 12 months. However, you must make a start as soon as possible, as this is your best chance to escape the 9 to 5 and become financially self-reliant.
After all, there are certain things you can do to help increase your chances of achieving results sooner -You must pick the right product for the market at this present time and must be committed to learning the digital skills you need to be successful.
