1. Freedom Of Location: The ability to work where you want and when you want.
2. Low Fixed Costs: The ability to start, grow, and scale your business with low overhead.
3. The flexibility of Time: The ability to manage the business with as little time invested as needed. It’s about being able to do what you want when you want and to be able to do those things with the people you love and care about the most.
Again I’m not special, anyone can do this. I’m just passionate about living life on my own terms and want to encourage other people to do the same.
So with that being said…
Ever dreamt of spending your work day at the beach?
At one time that may have been more a fantasy than viable option, but those days are in the past. Imagine running a business that worked around your life rather than the other way round.
As a lifestyle entrepreneur, you can take your work with you anywhere and enjoy life according to your own terms and talents.
5 Key Steps Towards Becoming a Lifestyle Entrepreneur
Here are five key steps to get you started.
1. Make a Plan
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” -Benjamin Franklin
Despite what some may initially think, some passions simply do not translate into a profitable business plan.
Because of this, it’s important to take an honest look at the interests and talents you possess and analyze which of those can actually be used to develop a successful business.
If what interests you most is watching movies, for example, you may struggle to find clients willing to pay you just to sit on the couch.
But, if you have talents for writing and humor, you can take that movie-watching love and turn it into an awesome movie-review blog.
2. Set Realistic Goals
You’ve probably heard the old adage, “it takes money to make money.”
Well, unfortunately, it’s true.
This being said, it’s important to recognize that even with a substantial financial investment on your end, the odds of you making a million that first year are not very high.
Still, with realistic goals and an excellent daily work ethic, you can become a successful lifestyle entrepreneur in less time than you may think.
Just remember to set SMART goals.
- S- Specific
- M- Measurable
- A- Attainable
- R- Relevant
- T- Timely
3. Determine Your Niche
With billions of individuals in the world, creating one business that appeals to all of them is virtually impossible.
Luckily, this is not necessary to be a successful lifestyle entrepreneur.
In fact, doing the opposite may be more likely to aid your efforts.
By this, we simply mean choose a niche.
Finding a narrow demographic that finds value in what you have to offer is much more likely to lead to success in business.
Create a solution or service that particular niche truly needs or resonates with, and your business or service can become indispensable to them.
4. Raise Awareness
You could have the most amazing product or website on earth, but it will do you little good if people don’t know it exists.
Having a robust marketing and social media strategy to gain exposure and reach your target audience is more than just a good idea if you want to become a successful lifestyle entrepreneur.
It’s an absolute essential.
Use everything from social media to podcasts, to affiliate marketing, to guest blogging.
5. Provide Value and Charge for It
If your free content provides enough value, potential customers will not be satisfied there.
They will continue to seek out your services or products.
Be sure to consistently create and offer free content that’s more valuable than what other companies are charging for.
Then, when it comes to your premium services/products, don’t undercut your self.
