But it is not everybody’s choice. Online business is risky, they say, and yes, they are right. But to me the risks worth taking. To me it is worth every penny, every late night, every weekend in front of PC for last almost two years building content and studying, every sweat, investment, frustration you would experience when you start any business.
Most of my friends have opted for an air-con open-space 9-6 office jobs, so-called “secure job”, they wouldn’t take risks. They love staying in their comfort zone but, then again, no, they can’t take a time off when they want, only an approved holiday.
Wednesday morning. Beautiful hot first summer day, forecast 34 degrees C for Bratislava. As I was pretty productive over the past weekend having had a bad stormy weather, I decided to take total advantage of my online business and take some time off today. Why not go out on such a lovely day, take a nice relaxing afternoon off with my newly made friend through Facebook and meet her for lunch in town centre where there have just started open-air italian markets. Sounds like a great plan to me.
I slept in a bit first, I felt like another hour or two after I sent kids to school, so I did. After I did my casual mummy’s chores and took it easy with a coffee. I could not stop smiling thinking how great it feels to be your own boss and just be in charge of your day. No deadlines, no unpleasant meetings, no awfully hot offices or again, too cold, if you find some smart head mistaking air-con for the fridge, no stress! Just going with a flow of the day and not organising anything. Should I need I could still find time to do some work in the evening, or then again, only if I wished. Only if I didn’t overdo on a prosecco today ;-).
My new Facebook friend lives in Sweden but happened to be in my town these days so we decided to meet up and become real friends. We met through our mutual friends some half a year ago and both noticed we had similar interests and likes. Had a little chat and kept in close touch ever since.
We had a lovely time strolling through the markets and stands offering every kind of authentic homemade products and wines, including prosecco and it was so nice to get to know this beautiful soul with such a broad overview and life stories. Really enriching experience. If anyone ever wanted to underestimate the power of social network and if I did too, today I’d be a friend poorer.
I am really asking myself, why wouldn’t anybody want to do the same? I can never appreciate laptop lifestyle enough especially after being employed for so long and running around like a racehorse every day, kids, work, household… single-handedly.
Looking back, only hell knows how I didn’t go crazy, how I actually managed it all. I mean, it seems physically impossible to manage all I used to manage in one day, so no wonder I was always stressed, sick an tired and incapable of thinking straight. Honestly, looking back it seems to me like I didn’t even live, I was a living dead.
But, it is over and I am living my dream life now towards which I worked so hard in these past months and it was a long and difficult journey to place myself on this path, but worth taking and “risking”. It was worth every investment.
Having an own Online Business in 2017 makes sense. To me at least, because I love my FREEDOM, because I love my life.
And if you love yours and would love to start your own ONLINE BUSINESS too, see if by clicking on any image gives you an idea on how to start, or just a small input, a kick, a hint, a fragment of hope that it is possible to do for anyone.
And if I could do it, anyone can and even better!!!
