To be sincere, I never thought I would become a blogger, or even better, an online entrepreneur at all. But destiny has it that I am tech savvy from when I was infant till now, even though I don’t blog as a full time job right now but, I can tell you for free today that 90% of everything I have achieved is through blogging.
So in this article I will be taking you through top 5 reasons why you should start a blog.
While I’ve been blogging and writing content online for times now, I had no idea that I would be able to take this and convert it to a new lifestyle.
Even more interesting, I had no idea I could make of this a career and enjoy it so much while earning money doing what I love to do. If you want to know more about how to make huge amount of money from online, you can check out my other post about Online Money Making here, you’ll find more information there than I can explain in a few words.
Now, there are a lot of great things (and of course, also disadvantages) of being a Blogger. in this post, I’ll select the top 5 reasons Why You Should Start a Blog and the advantages of it. I hope you can all enjoy them and share with me other thoughts about it.
Why You Should Start a Blog
And if you’re not an online entrepreneur, but you’re thinking about being one, I hope my story and this helps you make the change (just be prepared, because it might not be an easy path).
1. You Can Wear Whatever You Like!
Yes, that’s it. Are you tired of having to follow a dressing code to go to work because you should? Well, if you’re an online entrepreneur, probably most of your action and engagement with customers is made online. That means you can wake up and use your pajamas to write a post, but I don’t recommend it, lol.
The reason I try to avoid this is because wearing something so soft and comfortable could be prejudicial for your efficiency. I mean, just imagine you’re so comfy that you want to go sleep back to your bed every 2 hours…
It’s your own business, and your own results
I think one of the most important things that make people get bored at work, is that somehow they don’t understand part of the process involved, and they can’t see short term results either.
So you always hear your boss trying to make you remember the importance of X/Y factor and how it makes more money to the enterprise to be profitable, and you don’t get it because you don’t see the classified numbers.
And of course, this doesn’t affect your salary over a short time. If you’re doing it good, you might receive a raise in the next 12-24 months. if not, well…
So when you’re working in your own business, you need to learn how EVERYTHING works. You need to know how to prepare something, how to sell something, accountability, tech stuff and more. You’re like an All in One on steroids.
This is great because you understand how a simple action could drive more money to your pocket, and you actually see it in short and long terms. So if today you made an extra effort and worked until 10pm, maybe tomorrow you could see a new project pouring into your to-do list or an extra 30% payment from your customer. That’s simply something you couldn’t see by working at the office with a fixed salary.
You learn something new every day
I have heard a lot of people moaning they’re tired of doing the same stuff over and over again for months or even years. The first 1-3 months on the enterprise are great because you’re trying to learn everything and you get to know customers, processes and more.
But after that, you’re already trained and you work like a machine doing the same thing over and over again.
If you’re a pro-active person, then you’ll always try to improve something here or propose something there. But some enterprises are just to slow and they like to do what they’re already doing because it “works“.
If you’re not pro-active, then you become surrounded by other 50 machines doing the same around you in a grey cubicle working from 9 to 5. You’re just waiting until the clock ticks 5pm to go out and get your coloured life again just to suffer the same the next day.
You can earn passive income and a retirement plan
Have you noticed the boss of the enterprise you’re working in arrives late, or it doesn’t arrive to the office some days?
It’s because somehow, he has enough money to hire you to earn money for him. You work while he enjoys his life. Don’t get me wrong though, there are so many great bosses that actually dive into their business to make it bigger and more profitable, and you can learn a lot from them.
However, being an online entrepreneur means you can create content, get customers and authority and benefit from it today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow and even the next year.
Your content will be on the internet forever, so if someone is still looking for it, they’ll find you, and you’ll earn passive income.
When you’re an employee, you get payed to work 8 hours 20-22 days of the month.
Imagine going to sleep and wake up just to find you’ve already earned some extra dollars? Or instead of being worried not to waste so much money in your vacations or every weekend, you could see money pouting into your account at the same time you enjoy your life.
It’s satisfying and you become an Authority
This is probably the most important thing of all. When you create your own job and you success, you’ll feel really happy. Nobody can take that way from you. It’s probably one of THE BEST feelings in the world.
Choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life
It also helps you become more efficient, which means you can later do what you usually did in 8 hours, in just 2-4 hours. More time for you to enjoy your life without being stocked in a cubicle for 9 hours just because you can’t leave early even if you’ve already finished your work.
