At some point, you might have been interested in the notion of making money online. It’s an appealing concept after all – being able to earn money from the comfort of your own home, or even abroad! So, you type in ‘Make Money Online’ and what do you find? Usually, it’s tips on how to sell eBooks, advice on how to earn money as an affiliate and tips on how to get to the top of Google. Often by essentially spamming Google until you get there… Most of what you find won’t be terribly ambitious in other words. And in fact, a lot of it isn’t even going to be the kind of work you’re likely to be very proud of, let alone passionate about.
INNOVATIVE ENTREPRENEUR But that’s not what making money online has to mean. Making money online can also mean becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Mullenweg or Steve Jobs. The internet provides us with an absolutely incredible tool that is right now changing the world and changing the way we live and work. If the only part you want to play in that is to sell an eBook on losing weight (that’s not factually accurate), then you are preparing yourself for failure. Worse, you’re preparing yourself for success that’s so modest as to be incredibly dull and frankly depressing. Opportunity is knocking and it’s up to you whether you want to take that opportunity to do something incredible or just to try and spam people. I know what I’d rather do.
