Sacrifice: An Important Ingredient for SuccessSacrifice: An Important Ingredient for Success
Here's what I want:
I want perfect children, without paying any money or losing any free time. I don't want to work hard at it. I just want perfect results to happen.
I want perfectly polite, obedient, God-loving children.
If I can't get with the program, perhaps instead I could find a couple of kids who are already like that, and raise them instead. I don't want to sacrifice time, money, or effort. I want perfection without any problems.
Of course I'm kidding. We all know that to raise great children, you must sacrifice time, money, energy, and more.
What is all this talk of raising children in an article devoted to helping you start an online business? Raising children, like building a business, is one of the most rewarding and most difficult tasks you will ever encounter. In both cases, you must make sacrifices - short-term pain for long-term gain.
Of course, your children are more important than your business. If your business is in the way of family time, you may need to reconsider your life. One way to mingle family and business is to find small businesses kids can start. They will take important steps towards independence while learning valuable skills for the rest of their lives.
Enjoy financial freedom;
Reduce their debt;
Work from home;
Quit their day job;
Teach their children valuable business skills;
And NOT spend a dime!
That doesn't make any sense. How can you build a thriving business without cash? It's true, you don't need a huge cash outlay. But you will need to get started, and that takes a small amount of money.
It takes money to make money the old adage is certainly true! Don't fall victim to unscrupulous advertisers promising amazing Internet "opportunities". With a small cash outlay, you can build your online business.
First, invest in a computer with an Internet connection. Theoretically, it's possible to build your business while working from Internet cafs.
Realistically, I don't recommend it. A dial up connection may be too slow for your needs; however, your connection does not have to be blistering fast to be effective.
Next, register your domain name, or URL. This will generally costs between eight dollars and $15 per year. Avoid using "free" domain services, which are often ineffective or unreliable.
The company which puts your webpage on the Internet will charge "hosting fees". Expect to pay $50 or more per year for reliable hosting service.
Finally, build your website. There are many free tools on the Web - website templates, graphics programs, even shopping carts to make your customers' lives easier. With plenty of free tools to choose from, this is a valuable way to keep costs down.
Looking to get the family involved? There are many small businesses kids can start online. Give them a competitive edge, and help them live the dream help them build their business today!
