My wife and I have taken the baby and traveled to Michigan to spend the 4th of July holiday week with my family. A number of years ago, my parents bought a house in a little community on the Lake Michigan coast and for the past 12 or 13 years, we gather there in the middle of summer.
I’m sitting outside the public library here breathing in the fresh air and taking advantage of the free WIFI access they provide and it reminded me of one of my goals: create a online business that can be run from anywhere I have access to the Internet so I can spend my time where I want to!
So far this morning, I’ve run a quick check of my affiliate accounts, Adsense, and Amazon.com. I’ve also been able to look in on a PPC campaign I’ve got running over at Yahoo! The income isn’t big, but I’ve managed a few dollars while hanging out here at the cottage.
This time next year, it would be great to spend a month here visiting and enjoying the weather and the beautiful surroundings. All I need to do is build up my online business to an income level that supports our lifestyle and then run it from my laptop – anywhere.
Are you trying to build an online business? What does your dream life look like once you have succeeded? How will you spend your time (and where) once you have more control?
Knowing where you are going is an essential ingredient to getting to your destination. Spend a few of your casual summer hours daydreaming about what you want your life to be like – then write down the dream! The written dream is your roadmap!
The Go-To Guy!
