Right now I'm a free man. I run a small business from the back of my house and two internet businesses (including LUS).
No debt and complete freedom. But it wasn't always like this.
Many years ago I thought I had it all. Property, cars, and a big titty blonde.
I had it all, then I lost it all. And boy did I lose it all.
But there's one thing I didn't lose - my freedom...
I was always working for someone else. Getting paid for time that I won't ever get back.
It wasn't until I got into business for myself that I actually gained freedom.
As I made my own money I relied less and less on a job. Until one day I decided to quit.
Now I can make all my money working from home. Free from anyone telling me what to do.
You can too.
What's the best business to get into?
Internet business in hands-down the best business there is.
Making money online is the greatest thing you can do for yourself because so much of the work is one-and-done.
This means that even when you don't work, you can still get paid.
Especially in the blog business.
Why is the blog business the best internet business?
Starting a blog is the easiest and cheapest business to start.
All you need is a domain name and hosting. Which only runs you about $5-$10 a month.
Unlike a typical brick and mortar business, a blog isn't limited to the locals. Your blog is accessible to anyone with an internet connection worldwide.
Let’s put it all in perspective -
Why not take advantage of this widespread internet addiction?
Face it, you’re gonna be online anyway. Why not make money off of it?
Whether you're young or old, anyone can do it. You can be white, brown, black, blue, green, whatever.
If you can provide high quality value you can make money online. Because a blog is the easiest website to start and monetize.
How much money can you make online?
It can be a lot of money or a little bit.
The creator of ShoutMeLoud, a tech blog, makes over $40k a year.
John Lee Duman, an entrepreneur blogger makes over $140k a month alone.
Check out their financial statements online.
You make as much money as you deserve. And that depends on how much you're willing to do to make it all happen.
Let’s put it this way, if you can make a few dollars online you can make a few $100. If you can make a few $100 then you can make a $1000. And so on.
All you have to do - is sell.
What do you sell to make money online?
There are four ways you make money selling online:
Sell your own product. The most profitable way to make money is make your own product to sell to your audience. This can be your own digital product or product you buy from a vendor and sell at an upcharge.
Affiliate marketing. Sell someone else's product for commission. For example, if a blogger recommends a product and provides a link, there's a chance that your purchase grants them a % of profit.
Place ads on your site. Google AdSense is an easy way to get paid advertising on your site. Or you can put ads for your own products on your site instead.
Sell your service. If you have specialized knowledge, you can sell your consulting services to customers. This is the option that isn't passive income.
