If you have been wondering for a while about how to start an online business, you are not alone. You may want to work from the comfort of your home, or maybe you love the idea of traveling to new places while working on something that you love. Or you may just want to start your own creative business! The problem? You don’t know what that business could be!
Let me give you a straightforward answer: You have to know yourself first to figure it out! I know, I know… Easier said than done, right?! Just let’s try to discover together what’s the perfect online business for you!
4 steps to choose the perfect online business for you:
- Your strengths. What are you good at? What are your natural-born talents? Were you always a team-player? The perfect host? Are you crafty? Did you start singing like the greatest rockstar before you could even speak? Do people usually like to listen to your advice?
- Your skills. What have you learned all these years? What did you study? Can you speak any language? Use any software? Did you join any courses? Have you been practicing any sports? Have you read any book that gave you special insight about something that you would be willing to share? Are you a techie person?
- Your experience. Which tasks did you develop – or are still developing – at your past jobs? What were you responsible for? Did you acquire project management skills? Have you become online-tool savvy?
- Your hobbies. What could you be doing the whole day without even noticing that lunchtime is way over? Can you think of any job where you could apply your hobbies? I’m sure you can!! There are options for even the craziest ideas!
Combine your strengths, your skills, your experience, and your hobbies to find out what your perfect online business is!
