Financial Samurai has technically been making money online since it started in July 2009. I think the site made $3 the second month the site was live. Whoo-hoo! Although I didn’t focus on making money online, the site began to generate revenue anyway. Do something you love and the money will follow right?
By the time 2012 rolled around, I figured with the combination of my investment income (~$80,000) and online revenue I’d be fine if I took a leap of faith. Besides, my wife promised to keep working for 2-3 more years until she turned 35 as well.
If you’re looking to make money online, become an entrepreneur, or grow your business, let me share some important lessons I’ve learned along the way. These points are salient for anybody looking to grow their career as well.
