Are you thinking about quitting your job?  Make sure you do this first

I hear people all the time talking about quitting their job, and personally I think that is a great thing for many different reasons.

 

The thing is many employees have got programmed by their job into thinking a certain way. This way of thinking does not always work well when you see yourself on the other side of the coin as a business owner. 

Things like a steady weekly salary coming in on the same day every week or every month.   Trying to do as little as possible without getting fired from your job. 

 

And leaving at 5.30pm and leaving your work worries at the door are not always possible when you run a proper business. At least not until you get it organised that way, and remember this is not neccesarily likely to happen from day 1 of starting your business. 

At the beginning when you are  just starting out in your business, you will have quite a few expenses and may find yourself short of cashflow.  That is until you start getting in some customers buying your products or services.

A shortage of cashflow means it will be harder to outsource or pay staff in the beginning, unless you have a significant stash of capital or savings until you get your business off the ground. 

That is why if you are thinking about quitting your job, it is important to be prepared financially first.  And not just go running blindly into the world of Entrepreneurship. 

 

There are some people who have a mindset that is really not cut out for it.  The great thing about starting a business online, is that you can get systems up in place so you do not need to be there 24/7.

So you can get started with an online business part time. Then when your part time income becomes more than your weekly or monthly salary for a steady period of time. Then you can afford to leave your job knowing that you have enough money coming in to cover your lifestyle and living expenses. 

Of course if you end up being lazy, or learn that you do not like setting up or being responsible for your own business. Then you can quit knowing that your job and income will still be there for the meanwhile.  Until you work out something else that you would like to do.

Starting A New Business – Learn How To Get Your Business On The Internet

 

If you have never ventured into having an online business before there are a couple of things I would like to tell you first.

You may either love it or hate it but the benefits of having your business online far outweigh the costs or efforts needed in getting it setup and running.

 

1. Q. What do you need to setup your business and what will it cost?

It really depends on how serious you are about your business are you planning to have a business that makes anywhere from thousands to millions of dollars, or are you just looking to make your first $20. I would estimate that for a basic online business without doing paid advertising etc you should really allocate about $300 per month if you are serious about making money online.   There are some Free Options but unfortunately as with most free things they come at a price or another disadvantage. I will not be going into all of them in this post but be sure if you want to run a serious online business the paid option is by far better.

 

A. The basic things I would recommend when starting an online business would be one or multiple domain names normally about $12 each from Go Daddy

B. A hosting account or a viral blogging system like this one I am posting on today.

C. A Good WordPress Theme That Ranks 

D. WordPress Plugins To Go On Your Blog 

D. An Autoresponder like Aweber or Getresponse to be able to setup autoresponder messages and build a list of targeted clients and subscribers.

E. Possibly a shopping cart to add buy buttons and price your products  and affiliate management software for managing affiliate tracking links and payments.

F. Video Hosting Software if you want to make sure your videos do not get terminated by You Tube (This happens more frequently than you could imagine)

G. Probably some personal branding like banners logos, Facebook covers etc.  You can get these made for you on Fiverr.com or buy a cool logo software for a small price.

H. A capture page software to create capture pages easily.

I. A Video Screen Capture Software Like Camtasia or EVS Or Video FX To Make Or Record Screen Capture Videos.

J.  A Webinar Automation Software To Schedule Webinars To Run 24/7 Even When You Are Not There

K. Create some Social Media Accounts And Personalise them to your name or brand. 

L. Build a social media following using either software or manual work.  Or you can outsource it at Fiverr.Com or EasyOutsource.Com

M. If you run a business where you schedule appointments you can use an appointment scheduling program like this one. 

Q2.  What do I have to do to be successful promoting my business on the Internet?

A.  Remember building an online business is a journey not a destination you arrive at after paying a few hundred $$$s

B. Like with any other business or trade you need to learn test and adapt to suit your market.

C. Find a mentor someone who can show you what you need to do to start and build your new business online.

D. Be persistent anyone I know who has made a lot of money online has been persistent,  no matter what friends or family said to them.  They continued to follow their dreams, most people in a 9 to 5 job are too brainwashed or busy to understand what you are doing or why you are doing it anyway. 

Q3. I am looking an easy way to make money online will this work?

A.  This business is pretty simple if you follow the basic steps but definitely not easy.  Just because a online business can cost you a few hundred or even a few thousand to setup. Doesn’t mean that you should treat it any differently than a 500,000 Franchise business.  A good measurement to look for is to look at yourself like an employee in your business.  Look at yourself honestly after a few weeks working on your online business.  Would you hire or fire yourself if you where a business owner? Hiring yourself to run your internet business, if you would hire yourself chances are you are doing a good job.   If not ask yourself why and decide to change it or it will soon be time to change your business or become an employee again.
