It has been a long time since I’ve been wanting to come back to blogging, but it was only until very recently that I’ve finally reached a point where I found the time to bring this vision to reality. So, here we are, ladies and gentleman, grab a seat, the show (blog) is about to begin!
You will soon find me writing about the ins and outs of how I make my income by building online businesses, and I will be sharing some of my personal views via social media on Facebook and Twitter as well. But, if you really want to get the inside scoop, I recommend joining my email newsletter. Either way you choose to follow my updates, I’m sure you find something useful along the way!
If you haven’t figured out yet, I’m pretty sure that soon it will be obvious that I’m absolutely passionate about the topic of making money online, and just to clarify, I’m talking about proper online businesses, none of that crappy get-rich-quick dodgy multi-marketing-level shitty schemes some people write about online.
I’ve spent every single minute of spare time in the past 10 years building websites for fun and for profit. I’ve had a good share of successes, and many many failures, but more importantly to you, I’m going to share everything I learned so far right here!
I have a portfolio of websites generating passive income (some are more passive than others), but the one site I was not able to make it work yet was my blog, so I’m hoping to spend more and more time growing this site up rather than any other, and to be upfront, let me tell you right away that to make that possible I will be placing a few handpicked affiliate links on this site.

With all of that out of the way, let’s talk a bit about making money on the Internet…
Why do I Believe that an Online Business is Such a Good Idea?
It might seem a bit silly to take the time to explain why building a business online is a good idea, but for the benefit of those of you who are just starting out, here are the top reasons to why I find so compelling to get your income exclusive from the Internet:
- Your business is open 24 hours a day for 365 days of the year non-stop.
- You are able to reach a market size greater than any traditional business.
- You can make passive income—as in making money while you sleep!
See, I told you these were obvious answers!
(Also, the third reason should probably have been the first one!)
An online business has so many advantages when compared to a traditional brick-and-mortar business that many are closing their physical stores to trade online. This is a growing trend, so don’t ever say you haven’t been warned!
If you ask me, I believe that in the coming decades, we are bound to see a world were brick-and-mortar businesses are going to radically change from stores where people buy stuff to places where people come to have exclusive experiences that just aren’t possible online. Everything else will run on the Internet.
Oh, but wait, and there is more!
Some of my preferred ways of making money online come with additional advantages! Here are some of them:
- No need to pay rent for an office space or for a business shop.
- No need to stock products, or run a packaging and dispatching service.
- No need to make huge investments before the business even starts.
- No need to limit yourself to living in a single location.
…and perhaps, the best one:
- No need to commute from home to work and vice-versa.
If I had made a dollar for every minute spent commuting from home to work and from work to home back in the day I would have a million dollars today—no wait, I would probably have a billion dollars! Being able to work from home and spend more time with my family is my favorite aspect of making money online.
With that said, I’m off to spend some time looking after my baby daughter! Thanks for taking the time to read, and I hope to see you again soon!
