At one point or another, we all dreamed of leaving our 9-5 job to have our own business. I had 2 very successful business in my lifetime. One as a college student selling handbags and women's accessories, which led me to leave college because I was making more doing that business than I would graduate from college. The second business was owning and distributing coin-operated video games. I started that business after a very successful US Federal Government career that took me all the way to Washington DC. Even with all the success that I had as a Budget Director at the Secretary's level, I still believe that nothing compares to running your own business.
Both my businesses relied on customer acquisition. Without customers, there was no business. That is true with any business that interests on selling services or products.
Online businesses are no different. Whether you run a blog or have a Shopify account or sell through Amazon or eBay, you will need customers. You may read about SEO rankings, Pay Per Cick ads, or Google AdSense among others. You may also want to try to acquire customers through YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or any other of the many social media outlets available today. Whichever way you decide to promote your business, you will need customers not only to "follow" you, but, more importantly, to buy your product (s).
Here, enter trading as a home business. With trading, all you need is to do is learn and master a set of skills. You do not need to rely on social media or Pay Per Clicks to make your money. All you need to do is purely on your ability to make money trading by following some simple rules.
Trading has never been easier than it is today. Computers have taken some of the mystique of trading away. There are many automated solutions available today that can make even the most inexperienced trader a successful trader if they follow the simple rules outlined by the software. There are even fully automated software aka robots aka Expert Advisors that will execute your trades for you making trading a totally hands-free business.
Forex has the largest number of automated solutions in the market today. For that reason, these solutions are available at much lower prices ($ 200- $ 600) than those counterparts in the stock, e-minis, and commodity markets. When you consider the cost of just setting up a website for your business versus the cost of an Expert Advisor in Forex, to me the choice was not only obvious, but easy. The added benefit is that after acquiring your Expert Advisor (s), you do not have to worry about acquiring customers to start making profits, but rather immediately starting making profits instead.
As a business owner, I can say that trading is, without a doubt, a more appealing option to me. I now work / trade to live instead of live to work. I love spending time with my family and being able to trade / do my business from anywhere in the world. Through trading, me and my family are living the life we dreamed off a few years back. You can live that life too.
I wish you success in any endeavor you choose to embark.
