Lot of people (including me) talk about making money online. People reading our blogs would be wondering as to what is the big deal in making money online? Even we make money by having jobs. Yes, you might be making money with a day job and the chances are you are making much more than what I make. But, the main reason for making money online is not just the money part. The most important things are “time” and “flexibility”. I am writing this blog post on a Saturday afternoon, on a dining table waiting for my lunch to arrive. I can choose when to work and where to work. I could have chosen to write this post yesterday, tomorrow or whenever I choose to. In this post, I am listing the most important benefits that I see in working from home, making money online or having an online business.
Cheap Vacations Whenever I Want To:
How many times have you seen a nice vacation deal but you were not able to go because of your job? This happens to lot of people and I can imagine the pain. On the other hand, people who have an online business or who make money online can make the most of these deals. I do. I am constantly looking for vacation deals and I can choose to grab that deal and save lots of money. All I need is my laptop and an Internet connection which is available almost everywhere nowadays. This year, we celebrated my birthday at the Gold Coast. We got a cheap rental place right in front of the sea. Also, we got to visit all the worlds (Movie World, Sea World & Dream World) during weekdays when it was less crowded.
Cheap Flights Whenever I Want To:
Just like vacations, I can make most of the cheap discounts provided by airlines. I can also choose when to fly as flight ticket prices keep going up and down constantly. I can choose to fly when the rates are cheapest. I got some solid deals online for flights to Singapore and we had a month-long vacation in September. At times, you may also get cheap packages which include hotel stay and airfare.
Cheap Movies Whenever I Want To:
I can take my family for movies during weekdays. I hate crowded places and I love going to movie theatres during weekdays. The place is very less crowded and you don’t have to stand in long queues to grab a coffee or even to get inside the movie hall. And above all the advantages, you also get CHEAP tickets. Yes, movie tickets are usually lot cheaper during weekdays. There have been times when the entire theatre had only us. A private theatre just for you can be an amazing experience.
When I had a day job, we had to decide days ahead about taking a vacation or even going for a movie. I am a kind of person who hates crowded places but a day job means there is no option but to go for shopping on a Sunday or Saturday. Weekends means crowded places, waiting in queues and also higher rates. Now, if we have to go out on a vacation for a couple of days, we choose to go on a weekday. Weekdays means prices are low and very less or no crowd. This means that we can enjoy at a private swimming pool, private playing ground for kids and other spots where people don’t come during weekdays. We even pay less for hotels, movies and other public places which are usually cheaper during weekdays. Apart from all this, I get to spend time with my family as much as I want and also meet or party with friends when they are free.
The point I am trying to make here is that making money online means being your own boss and living life on your own terms. It’s not only about the money part. It’s not easy, but with right guidance, planning and dedication it can be easily achieved.
