Before we discuss the best business to start in 2020, let’s talk a bit about the time and effort it takes to start a small business in this day and age.
Time is almost always the problem when embarking on a new venture because today, we barely have time to breathe and it’ss a proven fact that businesses that put in the extra hours at the beginning , usually reap the rewards in the long term. However, the critics that talk about this usually say something like “It doesn’t matter what type of business you start, you always have to put the hours in at the beginning to succeed”
This is where I disagree.
In my opinion,The type of business you choose to start is the most important decision in your career because this choice will depict the amount of time and effort you need to allocate to your business each and every day.
Choosing The Right Type Of Business
Obviously if you decide to start something like a small scale retail business or a repair business, you will have to allocate many hours at a time to build and grow your business in terms of learning and mastering the trade. Then of course advertising yourself to grow overtime. I’m not sure about you, but just the thought of all that extra late night work puts me off.
However, if you choose a business that allows you grow at your own pace and still end up making a decent living in a time frame that suits you, it will firstly be easier to “find the time” to do it because you are not pressured to meet other peoples’ needs and wants and secondly,it will be easier to accomplish your goals because you will be motivating and pushing yourself to work to the best of your ability within your current lifestyle.
So instead of working to meet someone else’s deadlines , you can work on a small portion of the task every day and publish your work whenever you want to…no pressure.
Thiat’s what I did.
I’ve enrolled myself into an online course that allows me to learn and earn simultaneously and at my own pace. Basically, I found a website that teaches you how to start earning an income (that may eventually become passive income) while learning the tips and tricks of the trade.
Now you may be thinking “Well if I am going to start an online business, I will have to learn how to do complicated actions like coding or learning complex systems in order to run my website” Let it be known that if it was complicated, I probably wouldn’t have done it myself because when it comes to technology, I consider myself a little “backwards”. For example (and I’ve mentioned this in another post), I only learned how to compose an email at around the age of 16! So the skill I’m about to introduce you to really is simple.
The Big Reveal…
My number 1 choice an Affiliate Marketing course run by Kyle (The CEO) from Wealthy Affiliate , and as Niel Patel explains it , “Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products.”
The differentiating factor between Wealthy Affiliate and other affiliate platforms is that Kyle himself explains that the methods he uses are not “get-rich-quick ” methods,but methods that will be beneficial for a long term, sustainable business. He also conducts the step-by step training tha is mentioned below:
There are two primary types of training offered at Wealthy Affiliate,the “Online Entrepreneurs Certification” and the “Affiliate Bootcamp”.
The Online Entreprenuers Certification – this is a step-by-step guide on how to create your own website and promote almost any product that you would like to. This focuses on promoting products in your chosen niche (interest).
The Affiliate Bootcamp – this is a step-by-step guide on how create a website to promote Wealthy Affiliate and earn 50% monthly recurring commissions from every person that signs up using your affiliate link.
The common thing between both courses is that you can complete them at your own pace and start earning while you are still completing the course. That’s why i said “no pressure”
At The End of The Day
The affiliate marketing course at Wealthy affiliate is designed to help you transition from your 9-5 job to earning a full time online income.
Kyle and Carson (the founders of Wealthy Affiliate) understand that people today are living hectic lives and is another reason why they have designed the course in such a way that you can complete it at your own pace.
Another benefit is that along with the 7-day FREE trial you get as a starter member, you have access to a community of over 1.5 million people that are willing to answer your questions and help you grow to reach your financial goals.
What I suggest is that you allocate about 1 hour a day to start off with, and in my opinion , don’t stay up 1 hour extra at night,wake up 1 hour earlier in the morning because it is proven that you are more productive during the early hours of the morning and also , as the old saying goes….. the early bird gets the worm
So Stay focused,Stay dedicated and Stay motivated to succeed !
