From a Corporate Slave to Building an Online Business – How to Make the Big Leap

The world wide web has indeed become the hub of multi-millionaires whose main income is through Online Marketing. The genius of working online is not limited to your background education, age and your social status, or even your geographical location. The internet provides everyone with equal chances of succeeding and making it big time. I know a lot of people who are younger than me (and most of them are college dropout or people with humble beginnings) and yet they have a bank account with huge earnings like that of Donald Trump. Who would have thought that even a high school student has now equal chances of making money online as that one who graduated with a Masters degree? What a funny world we live in. But surprised as you may be, this is after all the information age – the one who has the information is always going to be ahead of the game and will get rich faster. Donald Trump has built his business empire for years (with sweat and tears). The good news for us is we can do the same with less the sweat and tears and with less amount of time (and just counting months to see the $ instead of years!). Don’t ever think that working online is just a piece of cake. It is not what others made you to believe. It is not as easy as a-b-c! But it is indeed more simple than slaving yourself in the corporate world.So how can you jump-start your online business while you still have that 9-5 job? What is the best game plan? First, evaluate how many hours you can spare a week for online marketing. It could be 4-8 hours a week. It is up to you. You can work at your own pace (as long as you are consistent). The second step is to find a business model for your online business. It is important that you follow one business model until you succeed. Don’t stop until you have not done everything in the blueprint. If during the process you feel that the business model is not suitable for you, just continue and finish it anyway. The biggest mistake that an aspiring online marketer can make is jumping from one program to another – hoping for the easiest and quickest way to make money online. Trust me, I have been there and done that and failed miserably. Don’t make the same mistake I made of chasing the next big thing and wasting a year of my career online reading and learning what is supposed to be the best business model out there and not taking ACTION. As they say, the most common newbie sickness is paralysis due to over-analysis.Now how would you know if you have the right business model? We all know for a fact that the internet is full of scammers and crappy programs. My advice is for you to do your research well. Join internet marketing forums such as the Warrior Forum ( The Warrior Forum for me is the best forum there is for online marketers. Everything you need to learn about internet marketing is laid out on you and you can ask questions and find answers as well. Just make sure you go through the thread first as your question might have already been asked and answered before. The best thing about making money online is there are a whole lot of options to choose from depending on your skills. You are not limited with only one business idea. There are a lot of good online business models you can choose from. Don’t spend so much time finding the “best” business model or the “best” program as this could begin your journey to the island of the lost newbies. Pick one model and get on with it right away. Don’t look back until you have finished what is laid out in the plan. Once you are done, then you can go ahead and find another business model if you are not satisfied with the first one, or if you simply want to add another source of income. Again, one business model at a time. You can rinse and repeat afterward to multiply your income.Once you are earning a decent amount of money on the internet (i.e. income online is now greater than your corporate salary), you may opt to say goodbye to your 9-5 job. Just imagine how life could be different for you if you can work at your own pace. You can work as little as 1 hour a day and still reap the benefit of your effort. This is what you call business on auto pilot. You don’t have to be there 24/7 to earn the money. That is why they say you can earn money while you sleep – literally. But then again, don’t ever think that making money online can make your rich overnight. Treat this as a real business and I guarantee that you will be on your way to financial freedom. Now get started and take ACTION.
