The Disadvantages of Corporate Employment:
If you’ve ever held a job anywhere, you’ve probably accepted the fact that companies prioritize their needs ahead of yours. Bottom lines are the top priority, while your work-life balance sinks to the bottom of the list.
You must follow their schedules, rules, and schemes for advancement & pay. Any deviation from this approach requires permission or can land you in hot water. They’ve probably even tried to brainwash you into thinking that prioritizing your own needs is unprofessional.
Unfortunately this is the case for far too many individuals, but there is another option that is rather underutilized in this day and age:
Pursue the Lifestyle Business You Deserve:
A lifestyle business is a type of business that focuses on lifestyle benefits first (freedom, flexibility, fulfillment, etc.) and income second. This is not to say that the money factor isn’t important, but your personal happiness comes first.
As the internet continues to grow in both content and users, the opportunity for you to profit only increases. Some may argue that the internet has been around too long and all the good opportunities are taken, but that is absolutely not the case. If you’re passionate about a specific topic and dedicated to sharing valuable information with others, you can be a successful online business owner.
Society Has Pushed You Down The Corporate Path:
Most likely, every stage of your life has been shaped by individuals molding you into a so-called “business professional”. Parents and family members push you towards “safe, steady jobs”. And business schools teach you how to work for, manage, and grow corporations; not build happier lives.
With your own online lifestyle business, however, the traditional corporate definitions of success don’t necessarily apply. Are you focused on profit margins of large corporations and growth for growth’s sake? I’m guessing not. The good news is that you have an opportunity to choose your own personal balance between passion and profits. And that opportunity only comes through the creation of your own niche online business.
The Advantages of Your Own Online Business:
It’s important to remember that success is not just financial. Being able to pursue your passion, have the flexibility to do the things you want, and work on something that is “your own”, all trump profits. You can smile at the fact that you’re pursuing a lifestyle you enjoy on a day-to-day basis, and not just looking forward to weekends and a couple weeks of vacation from your job every year.
How great would it be to be able to choose the people you work with? Work on the projects that you actually want to work on? Choose your own hours? Plan vacations on a whim instead of months in advance? And not have to feel like just a number sitting in a cubicle? It is 100% possible to create this reality for yourself.
