Let me start by saying that right now is always the perfect time to start, whether it’s working online or starting your own online business, don’t wait for the perfect moment or until you think you’ll be ready. That may never happen. Imperfect action every day is better than no action at all.
If you want it and you feel it in your gut that this is the next step for you, just do it, start now. Don’t let others discourage you or hold you back. And if you’re doubting whether now is a good time, during a global pandemic with many losing their jobs, the answer is still yes. You can and should start now. There are so many opportunities, and more so, now that many businesses are going remote.
You’ll be able to work from the comfort of your home and do everything remotely.
Below, we will cover 3 of the biggest reasons why there is no better time than NOW to dive into the world of online work.
1. The future of working is online and remote.
Yes, that’s right!
Even though a big part of working is going to an office, the future of work is moving towards online remote work. Many companies are getting on board and realising the benefits of having remote employees. And employees prefer working remotely because it gives them the time and flexibility to live differently.
A recent survey of more than 500 founders of venture-backed companies, about how the global health crisis has impacted their businesses and altered their roadmaps for the 2020s, suggests that remote work is here to stay!
Another survey by Buffer with over 3,500 remote workers from around the world, also suggests that most employees would like to work remotely.
With the recent pandemic, this trend is being pushed more into the mainstream and it is here to stay.
2. You can make more money.
People who live in countries with no minimum wage have the potential to earn much more money if they move online and find remote jobs that value their skills and pay them good money.
Also, when you’re working online, you can be a freelancer and work for multiple businesses rather than being employed by just one. This again opens up the potential for more income.
Being a freelancer also allows you to set your own rates, which you can always increase as you level up your skills and experience.

3. Working online can help you build the life you want.
Start working online and build the life you desire!
Do you want to travel? Or spend more time with family and friends? Do you want to work less or be able to control when you work?
Working online, especially as a freelancer or a business owner, will give you all the freedom you’re craving for.
It will take some hard work to get to that point, but once you’re established, you’re golden!
Use your ideal life as extra motivation to get moving and start working online!
Once you work online, it doesn’t matter where you live. As long as you have a good internet connection, you can work from wherever you want.
If you’re a freelancer, you’ll get to decide who you work with. If you’re working with a client and they turn out to be a nightmare, just fire them. You’re in complete control.
Say goodbye to annoying colleagues, inappropriate bosses, or terrible projects.
You can specialise in your favourite tasks and turn down projects that don’t excite you.
At some point you’ll be able to hire contractors, so you don’t have to do everything yourself anymore.
It’s a whole different way of working!
So what are you waiting for?
This is the perfect time to start working online and take control of your life!
While many people are losing their jobs right now, the online work world is thriving. Businesses are popping up everywhere because everyone is sitting at home.
If this has been your calling, wait no more. START NOW!
