If online business ideas sound like a dream to you, then you’re not alone. Most people are intrigued by the idea of having an online business, yet few know how to begin.
If you are working a full time job then you are really just trading your time for dollars. Even if you are self-employed with a higher paying profession such as a doctor or lawyer, you are still trading your time for money.
The same is true if you own your own business unless you have systems in place and excellent managers who can run the business for you. Even so, this still requires some of your time because you will need to manage the managers.
Regardless what a job pays, it is still just a job. What would happen if you no longer had your job? Your income would stop. Clearly, this model is flawed and is not the best way to build wealth. True wealth is generated when your money begins to work for you, not the other way around.
The internet is the perfect environment to conduct business and to build wealth. Why is this?
