Are you active on Instagram? If so, you probably have seen people travelling all over the world. Have you ever wondered how do they manage to earn money while they are travelling all the time? Well, those people are the ones living a Laptop Lifestyle.
Last week, I talked about building an online business and how can someone start a business conveniently while sitting at home. And this led me to write today’s post which is about the Laptop Lifestyle. This lifestyle has become quite popular with the Instagram-inspired entrepreneurs and many people are striving to achieve it. So, let’s understand what is this lifestyle and how do people achieve it.
A Laptop lifestyle has become a popular lifestyle choice for many entrepreneurs and freelancers. This lifestyle allows the freedom to work from anywhere as long as you have a laptop, smartphone and an internet connection. Tim Ferris in his popular 2007 book, 4 hour workweek, provided a glimpse of the future of working. Being chained to a desk for work is in the past especially after the pandemic, the world had to adapt to the new normal.
Working from sunny beaches or snow-capped mountains seems like a dream. But with the advanced technology and practically everything moving online, this has become a reality for most entrepreneurs and freelancers. There are mainly two ways to adopt this lifestyle:
1. Working full-time or freelancing for a company:
Living a laptop lifestyle comes with a risk. And if you want to be as risk as possible, this is the best bet you have. With the booming gig economy, it has become relatively easy to find opportunities to work for a company so that you don’t always have to be in a lookout for customers for your products/services.
2. Starting an Online Business:
If you are willing to bet on yourself and take a risk, starting an online business is the best way to enjoy a laptop lifestyle. While becoming an online entrepreneur has its fair share of risks, it’s an excellent way for uncapped earnings. As a business owner, you can easily hire remote staff to work for you and also use a set of tools to ensure that they work efficiently.
If you are looking for ways to venture out in online business, look at my last week’s post for ways to start an online business.
A minimum viable product is a product development technique where a new product is introduced in the market with basic features. Feedback is collected from the initial users based on which the final product is developed.
This technique is extremely useful while building an online business. For instance, if you’re trying to start an e-commerce store, your focus initially should be more on listing and advertising the product to see if there’s a demand for your product. Nobody wants to spend months on creating a perfect looking website only to find out there’s not enough demand for the product.
So, what are you waiting for? Dip your toes into the future of work and learn to build an online business today.
Until next time…
