A business is like a tree. It will likely start off as a tiny and vulnerable sapling. It needs to be protected, nourished and nurtured if you expect it to grow into a mighty oak. Quitting your day job to join the ranks of the entrepreneurs is an admirable pursuit, and those who walk this path should be commended for their bravery, ingenuity and determination… but that doesn’t mean it’s not a risky endeavor. The business climate is fast paced, extremely competitive and rapidly evolving. While there are literally millions of new businesses registered around the world every year, it’s no secret that around half of them don’t make it past the 5 year mark.

Freedom means different things to different people; but the common theme appears to be that of having both the time and money to enjoy life on your own terms – to do the things you want to do, when you want to do them… and for a lot of people that is to live a life of travel.
Whether you want to travel the world, and live in a beach hut in Thailand for a few months or simply cruise along the West Coast in a cool convertible staying at hip places like the Hotel Republic San Diego… you’re going to need fuel to get there, and in this sense, fuel is money.
In today’s flourishing digital economy there is the opportunity to work remotely, from anywhere in the world, providing you have a laptop and a decent internet connection! No doubt you’ll have heard the tales of someone giving up their daily grind in order to travel the world… where they exchange the shackles of the nine-to-five for flexible working hours and the congested commute for a pleasant walk from their beach hut to a local coffee shop.
The benefits of this remote working lifestyle are clear… there are plenty of people who, right now, have exchanged their office cubicle for a beach in Thailand, getting a foot massage for a few dollars, whilst working on their iPad.
The opportunity to work remotely, and live the freelancing dream is within your grasp – but unless you’re able to generate a decent income you could end up spending your time pacing the beach in a state of financial stress rather than blissful relaxation!

When I first started out with taking my blog serious and aiming for five-figure months, I gained a LOT from reading all these income reports. I’m pretty sure this will be one of the most valuable blog posts I’ve ever written for new bloggers, so please read along! (more…)
