Everybody fantasizes about being their own boss. Yet very few people take the leap of faith because they either don’t have an idea, don’t have the financial means, or don’t have the confidence to execute. It took me almost three years of moonlighting on Financial Samurai as a personal journal before realizing I might be able to make enough money to survive off this site.
And that’s the thing. You don’t have to go all-in with your business! It’s not like in the past where you had to set up a brick and mortar shop, borrow money from the bank, buy lots of inventory and equipment, sign a one year rental lease agreement, and hire people in hopes of just making it. Now you can simply start your own business for under a hundred bucks a year on the side.
