WHAT IF YOU had thousands of fans worldwide looking to you for guidance, information, expertise, or inspiration? How about thousands of paying customers for your services or products waiting for you to wake up each day? That may sound out of reach, but you truly do have the opportunity to get there from where you are today.
Now, here’s the big question: What would you be doing for these fans and customers? Some of the paths we have now discussed include building lifestyle businesses by:
Serving the information or community needs of people who share your niche interests.
Transferring specialized knowledge from your job or learning new skills to position yourself as an expert.
Creating new downloadable information products.
Promoting, reviewing, aggregating, and filtering the products and information produced by other companies.
Freelancing (or at least virtual assistant-ing) to make money, learn new skills, and maybe even reinvent yourself.
The Click Millionaires road map differs for each person. I have seen solopreneurs have the best luck at doing the tasks they like and are good at, while outsourcing the rest. I know that may sound simplistic, but that’s the bottom line: Do what you like and enjoy and are good at (assuming it has some commercial value, of course) and you will enjoy what you’re doing, you’ll do it well, and you’ll keep on doing it. Outsource the tasks you don’t like, because trying to make money doing work you don’t enjoy, don’t understand, or aren’t qualified for will likely lead to discouragement and failure (especially if you also have competing obligations and limited time due to a family, children, etc.). It may sound self-indulgent to focus on the tasks you like, but if you don’t, you are just creating another job you dislike. And I’m sure we agree that that is not the goal here!
