Starting your own business can be complicated and intimidating. Start by reading about some tips to make it more manageable and successful!
I started my first online business in 2018 after my daughter was born. I had a dream of becoming a blogger and influencer and working from home so I could stay home with my daughter until she went to school.
Four years later, I can’t believe how many opportunities are out there for anyone to build a business online. Once you figure out what you want to do and what skills you offer, you can make a fantastic living working from home.
It’s Not As Crazy As You Think
Starting a business from home in 2023 is a realistic way to make passive income or turn a side hobby into a full-time gig. Millions of people have started businesses from their homes, and you can be one of them.
With the rise of the side hustle economy, you can hire freelancers to help with anything. There are plenty of good business ideas to start your online business. But before you begin, you should learn about the HOW in how to start an online business.
Leverage Your Skills
Entrepreneurship is the current buzz. Everyone wants to be one, but how can you start a business if you don’t have expendable money? Many successful companies have been started with little to no money. Many of the most successful business owners started from scratch.
With the knowledge and skills they had acquired over years of hard work, they were able to create successful companies.
A great place to start is thinking about what skills you have that you can offer to others as a service.
Think of some ways you can use your skills to create something of value that solves a problem others experience.
What if you don’t have any skills that can be used to create something? Find an area you are interested in and learn the skills you need to create to solve problems in that industry. Do you want to create an iPhone app?
Learn iOS development. Do you want to build an affiliate marketing network? Learn SEO, how to build websites, and copywriting. You are going to have to invest tons of time in order to truly develop these skills to a point where you will be able to create something of value.
If you love social media, you can learn how to manage social media accounts for others. This is a massive space in online businesses. Another great platform to master and then offer your services is Pinterest.
Use the Internet
So once you know what skills you need to learn, how do you learn them? One word: Google. The internet is the first place to look if you want to learn anything. Literally, look up “how to learn ______” and you will be given hundreds of search results. I’d recommend reading the first 5 results and take notes on them.
Use Online Learning Platforms
Additionally, hundreds of online learning platforms can teach you everything from cryptocurrency to digital marketing to programming with Python. Reading reviews and blogs can help you learn about popular online businesses and stay current.
Here is a list of the some sites to learn the skills you need to start a business:
E-commerce Empire Academy
• Want to learn how to start a successful e-commerce business? This resource is a good start.
• A one-time purchase course website with a wide range of topics and skills available to learn.
Mug Moguls (Dropshipping Training)
• If you want to learn the secrets of dropshipping, I would suggest learning from Mug Moguls.
• Technology focused subscription based learning site. This site is great if you want to learn any technical skills.
• A website that partners with universities and organizations around the world bringing a wide variety of topics into one place.
The Difficult Truth
Building a company is going to be a long, slow process. The best choice you can make is to START. Too many people bounce from idea to idea, having never actually done anything.
Do yourself a favor and pick something to stick with for the long run. No matter the company you start, you have to change your thinking from “I want to make money” to “I want to solve a problem.”
Companies are created to solve problems, and making money is a byproduct of solving problems. If you can develop apps, you can create a great business like a grocery shopping app or something.
Lead wanting to serve others, never stop learning, and always follow your heart.
