Hi there, My name is Matthew and I’m the founder of The Online Income Entrepreneur. If you are anything like me
then you understand how important is to become self-made and to find your truths as an entrepreneur.
I’ve always been incredibly interested in the thought of creating my own income, instead of earning it through and under the hands of someone else. Because I love my freedom and I’m guessing you love yours as well.
Now after 7-8 months of trial and error, testing and failing, I’m now beginning to find my truths and coming into my own as an entrepreneur and if there is one thing I wish to do with this blog, it is to share these methods with you.
What is this Blog About?
Let’s face it, many of us wish to make enough money to retire at an early age, travel the world and have the best of life at our fingertips.
To be honest with you, I am no different. The term “ Passive Income” describes what many of us dream to achieve and with enough effort and sweat, I see no reasons why many of us can’t.
Since I’ve been in and around the online space I have heard a few very interesting definitions of what passive income really is, but the one which really stands out and appeals to all my human senses was said by Pat Flynn of the Smart Passive Income Blog.
What Is Passive Income?
He said passive income is, “ Building online businesses that take advantage of systems of automation that allow transactions, cash flow, and growth to happen without requiring a real-time presence.”
In other words, he says, “ We don’t trade time for money, Instead, we entrepreneurs invest our time upfront creating valuable products and experiences. We work hard to continually reap the benefits later.”
I have never heard it said better than that I must thank Pat for making me a strong believer in the possibilities of earning passive income.
Just think about it, what would you do if you could learn how to invest your time into building websites, that can be made to run on autopilot and potentially earn you passive income of the sweetest kind.
I am surely envisioning what it would look like for me to be hitting bank every Friday and making a killing based upon the work I put in during the week.
One of my favourite persons in the entire world is a guy by the name of Gary Vaynerchuk from the USA. This guy is an absolute beast and I deeply admire his work ethic, empathy and straight up self-awareness.
He often speaks about knowing your DNA and what this means is to know what suits you at the end of the day. He can easily work 15-18 hour days for an entire week and he has been doing this for many years.
He absolutely loves his hustle and he thrives in this environment because he is happy. But not all of us wish to work 15-18 hour days for the next 40 years and this is my truth.
How Do I Plan On Creating Passive Income?
Affiliate Marketing is the area I plan to tackle most. I’ve been involved for a few months now and due to impatience amongst other things, I’ve found it slightly difficult to see the success I so wish to see.
But I have definitely been improving day by day and due to my persistence, a few doors have begun to open up.
Using the skills I’ve learned through my educational subscription, I’ve begun offering services for Digital marketing including:
- Freelance Writing (My favourite)
- Search Engine Optimisation
- Local Marketing
And even though these aren’t passive ways of making income, the ability to scale these business models has me quite intrigued. But for right now, my main focus is on affiliate marketing and freelance writing.
My plan is to use the skills I am learning from Wealthy Affiliate (click here to see my WA profile) and leverage those to create multiple income streams.
The Journey Has Begun
I’ve made my mind up and am going full speed ahead with my plans. While listening to one of my favourite motivational speakers, Jim Rohn, he said something that really hit home with me. He said, “The more effort you put into going in any one direction, the faster you find out if it is the right road.”
Entrepreneurship is not an easy road but I find it easier to fight right here, rather than give into the grind of the 9-5, So I hope you guys can stick with me throughout my journey and also accompany me on this quest for passive income creation and a more fruitful enjoyable life.
So please follow me, like, share and all of that good stuff as I am willing to put in the work and I hope you are too.
Follow me on my journey as I develop an online career and share my experiences with you so you can find out first hand, what works and what doesn’t.
