There are many attractive reasons to work online. There’s the freedom, there’s the potential
for big earnings and there’s the sense of satisfaction that comes from choosing what kind of
business you want to run.
But for some of us, the biggest draw of making money online is that sense of accomplishment.
We love being able to tell people we’re ‘entrepreneurs’ and we get a thrill out of earning a
living on the back of our own ingenuity alone. But perhaps you’re getting to the point where
that isn’t quite enough? Because sometimes, selling digital products and running blogs can start
to feel a little empty… while you might be creating value, at the end of the day you’re still just
selling ideas and text and nobody actually gets anything physical to hold at the end of the day.
When you tell someone you’re an entrepreneur, what springs to mind? Most likely, they’ll
imagine that you’re an eccentric inventor – someone who comes up with gadgets, gizmos, ideas
and more and then uses those to make people’s lives better and make a bit of money on the
side. We think about people like Arthur Fry – the inventor of post-it notes.
When you say: ‘nah, I run a website’, you can almost hear them deflate with disappointment.
Oh, that kind of entrepreneur…
Make no mistake – making money online is a fantastic way to earn cash while enjoying the
lifestyle you want. And it’s incredibly skilled, talented and impressive if you can do it.
But at the end of the day, it’s not quite as exciting as creating a genuine, physical product.
Imagine being able to hold something in your hands that you dreamed up. Imagine being able
to use it as part of your routine. And imagine visiting a Big Box store and seeing your product
there on the shelf…
Imagine your product taking off and becoming incredibly popular. Imagine walking down the
street and seeing lots of people using your item.
