Have you ever dreamt of running a Lifestyle Business? But for some reason, or another you have not been able to actualize your life vision yet?
Or maybe you already own a business. maybe you have a startup company, but feel stuck and trapped by the daily operations and management of it?
Why it is essential to design an Online Business that suits your lifestyle
Let’s say you have identified intuitively and passionately that you want to build a lifestyle business. I would recommend designing a business, which fulfills your personal lifestyle requirements along with automating it.
Most people when they leave their work hours to become entrepreneurs, end up being trapped in another 24/7 job.
The term lifestyle in business means developing something that is innately fulfilling and flexible. You learn how to start building quality and valuable time to tap into your creativity. Also you have more time with family and friends.
This is what automating some of your Business Systems and Processes provides as well. You can focus then on adding more value and offering solutions to your prospective clients.
Business is a business. The automated systems work partially on your behalf to enable your online business to easily become more scalable. Easier to duplicate and to earn passive income.
This is all without you needing to be there 24/7 to manage any type of business daily operations.
As a lifestyle entrepreneur, you would want to have a 360 strategic overview of your successful lifestyle business.
It enables your growth to network more in communities, where your prospective clients hang out. This way you can identify key themes and trends of problems and solutions they are looking for.
Then eventually, you can create content, or produce products and services that address their needs. Or alternatively, offer pre-existing products and services of other businesses.
Additionally, the most successful entrepreneurs create a room and space for themselves. To continue live the life on focusing on their continuous self-development process.
Many aspiring Female Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners are feeling stuck, overwhelmed and unable to overcome self-limiting beliefs.
Nowadays, more women are seeking starting a lifestyle business. Due to motivating factors such as personal fulfillment in life and the flexibility to work independently from anywhere in the world. The opportunity to tap into their creativity by being their own boss is a million dollar feeling.
They are realizing that a lifestyle business could afford them spend more time with their family.
There is also an influx of newer age Lifestyle Business Owners.
Their sole concept is about moving away from the traditional brick and mortar business. And move to a more innovative digital and automated business.
This type of Digital Nomadic Lifestyle is not for everyone. The journey of becoming and being an online Female Entrepreneur can also be isolating.
“I believe Life challenging events happen for a reason. Part of it forces some of us to re-evaluate our lifestyles. For some of us, it propels us to actualize our trustees potential in life.”
Some Examples of Systems and Evergreen Products that you can automate in your Business are as follows:
1. Social Media -Posts, Messenger, Pages, and Advertisements.
2. Sales Funnel and Customer Acquisition processes by establishing Automated Email Marketing and Landing Pages.
3. Live Webinars which can be repurposed into an Online Course.
4. Online Business Products, for example, Digital Courses.
5. Online Business Services turned into video content based on your clients frequently asked questions.
6. Video and Voice (Podcasts) Tutorials.
You can always outsource some of the services to Freelancers and Virtual Assistants. This includes outsourcing the technical aspects of creating landing pages, automated emails, and Social Media management.
If you have not created products and services yourself yet. You can also promote Digital and Internet Marketing products on behalf of other Specialist.
You can automate these processes, thereby enabling you the opportunity for you to dedicate time implementing what you are learning.
My recommendations for you
This is especially if are seeking to design your own Online Lifestyle Business:
1 Identify your reason why and purpose in life. This is what will become your key driver in achieving results.
2 You have identified your reason why and purpose in life. Now start learning and educating yourself in that specific specialist area. This is what will enable you to be in service and to provide value in other people’s lives. Also, enable you to define and identify who your ideal Customer Avatar.
3 Leverage off existing Online Business, marketing systems, and processes. This alleviates the pressures of having to independently start your systems from the onset.
Based on my own personal and professional experience
4 Work with a Business Coach or Mentor who is the same line of business that you are interested in pursuing. Some who also aligns with your core values and ethics in life. So that you can learn from their experiences and achievements.
I would also recommend joining Mastermind Groups for extra support from peers. Don’t forget to attend regular Networking Events in your specialist area.
5 Focus on developing a positive and Millionaire Mindset through the process of self-development. This is how some people become very successful in developing sustainable businesses.
