There are a million ways to make money, and there are millions of ways to make money online too. Not all the ways of earning money are high profit. Lets look at profit. I like to think of profit as "whats left". Whats left after you've paid the bills, and spent the time.
We have limited resources and how we use those resources pretty much defines our quality of life. Where we vacation, what we eat for dinner, who we eat dinner with, where our kids go to college... You get the picture. So when your thinking of a high profit business opportunity, keep your resources in mind. I focus on time and money. Sure there are thousands of other resources, but time and money can acquire most of those.
When I make decisions such as what business ideas I want to invest time in I look at time first, you can't buy that, and you can't get it back once its lost. If you trade time for money, its tough to have both, ever! So those home business ideas that require me to spend a lion share of my time in a day are automatically out. I also like top earning businesses that have a passive element or better yet, multiple streams of passive income.
Profitable online business opportunities really turn my head, there is so much passivity to online business ideas. Some of the popular online business opportunities are blogging, selling your own products, selling someone Else's' products, selling ad space to someone who is or maybe a membership site. I don't own a membership website right now, but that is a major goal of mine this year. I have a great idea for a membership site and am in planning stages. Membership websites are great for the recurring monthly membership fees you collect.
As with any high profit home business opportunity its about adding value. A couple tips worth mentioning:
- Own your own marketing system.
- Understand Internet marketing Before you spend money.
- Start a blog.
- Learn from others who have results.
- Have a healthy scepticism but don't be cynical.
- Know what your trying to accomplish.
- Don't quit until your done.
It really makes no difference what business opportunity you choose, you have to add value and you have to persist. You will have obstacles, challenges, or difficulties, what ever you chose to call them, get over it and enjoy the journey. Help others along the way. These are a few of the top tips I can give to a person who wants to start a home business or online business.
Another thing I've heard a lot of is "there is so much crap on the Internet", I don't agree. If all you find is crap on the Internet, try looking in a different place. I've found dozens of successful people who are very transparent and willing to share the things that have worked for them, I think its great. You can buy information online that will save you time or you can spend time and get it all for free. Its up to you, I've done both, they both work.
The highest earning online business is going to be the business that you persist in. Look at your life and see the things in your past that you have persisted with. It a safe bet that you stick with the things that you were genuinely interested in, so find a business idea that really captivates your interest. Every business will have tough spots here and there, a genuine interest in the products you sell or the service you provide will help in those tough times.
There are thousands of good small business ideas, choosing the right one for you requires a little self reflection, don't cut corners, really get into you and what you want to create, you'll thank me later.
I hope this helps in choosing the best business to start this year. You should start a business too, it doesn't have to be a fortune 500, keep it simple, talk to an accountant and learn about the tax benefits to starting a home business or online business. The tax advantages of starting a home business are worth it, check it out. Money making business opportunities online are made more profitable by the way money is handled once its made, this is often overlooked by people used to earning mostly w-2 income.
