A lot of us are so consumed with this deep question, “can I run an online business from home, since I am not a technical person?” My answer is heck yes, why not? I think you need to meet someone amazing, an icon, and one of my heroes. Is a she! Marie Forleo.
Back in the day, she had an amazing Job on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. She was making cool money but she was always feeling like a loser inside, unhappy and unfulfilled. Like you feel too in your 9-5 job.
She went on to dabble in a magazine job – the editorial and Ad part of the magazine – yet she still kept feeling like a part of her was dying. Until she found this online course (Life Coaching Training). She was like 22 or 23 yrs then.
Immediately, without hesitation, she took a decision to register and get trained.
After the training, she outsourced someone to build her first website for $1000 because she wasn't a techie person.
Then, she started her entrepreneurship journey online coupled with some odd jobs she did for 7yrs to put a roof over her head and other essentials thereby not touching the little income from the small business.
Here is the big take away guys. What would life have been for her if she had not taken that decision? She probably would have been rich and frustrated, unhappy and all what not.
Today, she is the CEO and founder of Marie Tv, A world-class online programs such as B-School a book in 16 languages & an audience in over 195 countries as at now.
Now, she is one of the happiest people on earth doing what she wants from the comfort of her home and having vacations in different countries too. To crown it all a multi-millionaire with a capital M.
It is even easier to start now than back in the day.
Google is there for you to search for information in your choosing field of online career. Youtube is filled with so many “How-to-do” videos including how to build a website with zero technical skills and how to run a business online for free.
You can still outsource from fiverr.com to do anything tech related starting from $5.
Finally, you need a guide which can be a coach, mentor or instructor that is the best thing that can happen to you. Because it will save you at least 5yrs of your life trying to figure out what works or what doesn't. Just buy their online courses, their books or attend their live coaching classes.
