What Is A Laptop Lifestyle Business Anyway?
Is there actually such a thing as a laptop lifestyle business? It just doesn't sound like a normal kind of business to most people. We associate a business with some kind of a building or office, with a sign out front, employees, and all that sort of stuff. Fair enough, that's the way business has been done for hundreds of years, and still is. But guess what? Those "brick and mortar" types of businesses are still there, but there is a new kind of business now which is growing so fast it will make your head spin.
It's called online business, which advances in technology and the arrival of the internet have spawned. There is quite simply, a booming digital economy out there right now, which is only going to grow. And with this has come the enviable idea of the laptop lifestyle business.
It's just like it sounds. People are learning how to make their living through online business, with just their laptop and a good internet connection. Meaning they can work from where they want when they want, and how they want. It's as simple as that. Technology has opened up new and beautiful opportunities outside of traditional business.
Why Is The Idea Of A Laptop Lifestyle Business So Popular?
You only have to imagine the thought of your day going something like this...
Instead of waking up at 0530 to your alarm, then cramming in a hurried shower and eating breakfast while dashing out the door towards your daily battle with traffic, to work for somebody else... How about the thought of getting up when you like, when your work schedule belongs to you, and in fact, the rest of your day too. And week... how about your whole year. How do you like those apples? Thousands of others like the idea too and are learning new skills so they can have a laptop lifestyle too.
Not to mention the fact that by having this freedom of lifestyle you get to live wherever you want when you're not tied to your location by your job. And you don't have to worry about losing your job some day either because you have created your own. There is also the fact that it really beats working for someone else most of the time.
How Can You Create A Laptop Lifestyle Through Online Business?
The most important thing - BELIEF. In yourself, and the fact that it is possible, for you. Believe that you CAN do something different than what you are doing now. Take notice of the fact that other people are enjoying success doing just that.
Why not you? Your mindset is your most important tool and ally. You just need to develop the mindset of an online entrepreneur, instead of an employee. There's no reason you can't. When you do, you will be able to take advantage of existing opportunities you couldn't even see before.
Find the right people. Who can provide extensive training of great value. Do your homework. Use your intuition as well.
A favorite quote of Richard Branson comes to mind... He says, "I can tell within 60 seconds whether I trust a person and want to to business with them".
I'm not saying we're all that quick but trusting his intuition or gut feeling has served him well as one of the top entrepreneurs of our time.
Make sure there are real people and real support available at all times within the organization you choose. Check this out, and make sure you are happy with them by the follow up they deliver, and it should be prompt.
Make sure there is a large community of others, just like you, involved with the organization training you. This will truly enhance your progress. Networking and masterminding are essential qualities of online entrepreneurs. Community interaction is a game breaker when it comes to your success.
Consistency. It's the lifeblood of your laptop lifestyle business. Once you have found the right people to teach you, and are experiencing progress, stick with them! Don't jump at each new opportunity which comes along. You did your homework and made an informed choice. Give it a chance. The same goes for your daily learning and action steps. Being consistent each day will take you to that place you imagine for yourself.
Be organized, and FOCUS.... Determine exactly which step you need to learn next, then learn it. Then take action on that step by doing it. Learn and do, one step at a time. To avoid overwhelm. If you don't implement soon after you learn, it will be lost to the wind... And, you don't need to learn everything at once. Start somewhere, and gain some mastery, a step at a time. And move on...
See yourself there - Visualize every day your "why". Why do you want a laptop lifestyle? How will it feel? Picture yourself there, already, and figure out the "hows" as you go. The "what and the why" are your friends. Focusing on how, when you can't yet see the answers will slow you down. Just trust...
To Your Success,
