Starting a business changed my life for the better. I’ve technically been a business operator since 2009, when I started Financial Samurai. In this post, I want to share the best reasons to start an online business.
I dilly dallied for a couple years before starting Financial Samurai because I wasn’t sure whether I’d be able to commit to a long term plan. I remember hearing that it takes 10 years to become an expert in anything, and I didn’t want to start something if I wasn’t going to follow through. When the financial crisis hit I figured it was now or never.
Now that I’m 10+ years in, there’s not a day that goes by where I’m not thankful for having this site. I understand that a lot of you will say that you don’t have a good business idea or don’t have a clue as to how to start. The reality is I had no business idea either.
The key is to just launch and then figure things out as you go. You can afford to do so nowadays because the cost to launch and maintain is so cheap. Good luck trying to figure things out when you have to pay $5,000+ a month in rent to run a retail store or restaurant!
Let’s look at the top 10 best reasons to start an online business.
