I Want to Start a Side Business-Part One- Why, Startup Course & Brainstorming

The Success Tree

There has never been a better time than now to start an online side business for yourself. If I was able to start and co-found an online business last winter while living and playing hockey in Eastern Europe, I’m pretty sure you can create one too.


Three Reasons

Cost: You can start a legitimate online business for less than $150, maybe even $75.


You don’t necessarily need to be a programmer, web guy/gal to build a beautiful site (over the next few articles, I’ll provide you with a ton of tools that can help you with this).


The risk of starting an online business is extremely low today. You can do it on the side while you slowly build it up.

It doesn’t matter how old you are either (young & old). Anyone with passion, creativity, or an idea has the potential to create an online business that can create revenue.

Next month, I’m starting a super in-depth course, Side Business Startup, where I will show you how to create a successful business on the side.

This is not a course that will tell you to quit your job to start a business.

That’s stupid advice and the opposite of what will be taught.

The course will be an extensive guide that teaches you exactly how to start a side business the right way, based on strategies that have worked for myself and dozens of other successful online businesses.

In the meantime, I want to talk to you about how to come up with a great side business startup idea.

There are people out there on the web who are passionate about everything

There’s a group that loves knitting, one that likes juggling, and one for every other odd niche market out there.

It is your job to blend these two things: (this is very important)

1. Something you are passionate about (product, service, etc)

2. Something that people would be willing to pay you for

Without a product/service that people are willing to pay you for, you don’t have a business opportunity. The good news is that there are plenty of ideas people will pay you for.

Think about this: What are you really good at?

  • If you’re a great people person, maybe you could start a niche consulting business.
  • Maybe you’re really fashionable and want to start an online store.

Whether you work full-time or not, you have the ability to start a successful side business.

Until Part 2’s lesson, think about something you enjoy that you can also make money doing. Chances are, you’ll come up with some great ideas.

Write them down. Think outside the box!

If you want to let me know about an idea you have, ask a question, or just need some help, please click on the contact page to send me an e-mail. I would be glad to help.
