Are You Ready To Be A Lifestyle Entrepreneur?
(Article from Huffington Post) Enter the world of a lifestyle entrepreneur. The lifestyle entrepreneur has built their business around their ideal lifestyle. Lifestyles may vary, but it is for that person to choose which niche is right for them.
Are you ready to be a lifestyle entrepreneur? The benefits of lifestyle entrepreneurship are attractive. That is what often gets people interested. However, many people are not prepared to embark on the journey of the lifestyle entrepreneur.
First, you need to know that you have the tenacity to persevere until you achieve success. For some people, it can take a few months but it could take others a few years. In a past article, I talk about how most people would prefer to get lucky rather than earn their success. Entrepreneurship is not for everybody. It is no surprise why there are more employees than entrepreneurs.
Second, you need to choose an entrepreneurial path that can generate passive income for your business. There are several paths like podcasting, writing, monetizing a YouTube channel, or monetizing a blog through affiliate marketing.
Use common sense by defining your strengths and weaknesses. If you are camera shy, it may be best to start off with an audio podcast and maybe transition to a video podcast in the future. Moreover, if you feel that your writing skills are better than your speaking skills, then it may make sense to focus on monetizing your writing as an author or a ghostwriter.
Third, you need to realize the most feasible path for you. Do you have more time or money? Think about it for a moment. If you have no financial safety net, then you will likely have free time at your disposal. Contrarily, if you do have a financial safety net and not much time, then it will be sensible for you to invest some money in getting your business off the ground and on the fast track.
Some people may be fortunate to have an abundance of time and money. These people can choose freely rather than being forced to settle for a choice based on their lack of time or money.
Lastly, in order to achieve success as quickly as possible, remember that the process is the same. It starts with your online presence. If you are not on the internet, you are invisible to 90% of the national population. Having your own website and social media pages are a good start but it is only the foundation.
Successful lifestyle entrepreneurs understand that it also requires tactics like guest blogging, audio interviews (via podcasts or AM/FM radio shows), and video interviews (via TV shows or YouTube channels).
Social media marketing is an underrated tactic that should be employed to promote your media appearances.
When you live on an online platform with millions of people, it is not sufficient to share your content one time. You have to share it multiple times. On Twitter, you should be sharing it multiple times a week. On Facebook, you should be sharing it multiple times a month.
Often, many people try to be on every social media platform. It is not practical or necessary, but it is possible with some help. Companies like Infintech Designs can help you with your social marketing needs and more. Outsourcing such tasks can be helpful because you can dedicate your free time to working on things that complement your strengths.
Being a lifestyle entrepreneur may not make you a millionaire but it can definitely make you six figures per year. Learn how these lifestyle entrepreneurs are doing it.
