Which Online Business Should You Start?

If you're asking this question, I feel you! There are so many ways to create a profitable online business, that it's actually really difficult to narrow down the one that's right for you.

I created a quick quiz to help - take it here.  

Here is a list of some of the ways I've made money online:

  • Transcribing
  • A Shopify store
  • Selling things on eBay
  • Etsy stores
  • Copywriting
  • Helping people with their marketing
  • Coaching
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Being a virtual assistant
  • Selling things on Amazon
  • Writing reviews and doing surveys
  • Creating an online course
  • Writing blog posts

It's a long list, right? I'm sure I've probably forgotten quite a few things too.

If you're thinking about starting an online business, here are four topics to think about and journal on first.

Learn from my mistakes and don't rush into the first online business you think can earn money with!

What are your goals?

Do you want to make money while working from home or do you want a business that will generate good income but requires time away from the house?

How much money do you want to make? It's OK to think big here even if you've never sold anything online before.

How much time do you have?

What commitments do you have to yourself and others that you need to schedule building a business around?

I recommend scheduling in family time, self-care, exercise, etc. first because these are things you don't want to drop the ball with.

What do you love doing?

What do you get so caught up in doing that you forget to eat or go to bed?

What do you get super excited about doing?

The purpose of a business is to make money. But it can also be an opportunity for self-improvement, financial freedom, and even social change.

What are you good at?

What have people paid you to do?

What is effortless for you but difficult or even impossible for others?

What can you do that solves problems for others?
