What Do You Love Most About Being an Online Entrepreneur?
Do you know what I love most about being an online entrepreneur?
You may be thinking it’s the freedom….or maybe being my own boss…..how about the tax benefits?
Although those are all great options, right now I have to say that the best thing for me is that my business will continue without me…..at least for a while of course.
I recently learned this the hard way.
At the end of September, I lost my hard drive. It was unexpected and I saw no signs there was trouble. There was no virus. The message it gave me was that there was a problem with the hard drive as if it had been dropped or had something fallen onto it. I never dropped it or seen anything happen to it, so it is a mystery to me that is best left for another day.
I knew I needed to get an external hard drive (just in case), and kept meaning to get one but “never got around to it”. It was one thing I kept finding excuses for not following through with.
I was very pleased and excited when I realized that most of what I needed for my business was online, was working fine and didn’t need much of my attention. Photos and new blog posts could be started and aren’t complicated to create. My email follow ups that I created and scheduled using Aweber continued being sent out to my list. Scheduled blog posts that I had written prior to losing the computer went out as scheduled.
A huge weight was lifted off my shoulders and I felt so relieved that my business continued without me. Having the right systems in place and owning a business that can proceed on auto pilot makes my life a lot easier. Phew…..what a relief!
