How to Know What You Don't Know

Have you thought about starting a blog or maybe an online business?

But then you think:
I have no clue what’s involved,
where to start or
what I even need to know to do it.

The good news is... there are plenty of people who can tell you.

The bad news is... there are too many people who can tell you.

Where do you start?
Who do you trust?

Live where you want to
instead of where you have to.

Someone I admire is 
Natalie Sisson

Natalie is a New Zealand woman who has created an online business that she runs from her travels around the world.

While I don’t want to become a constant traveler like she is, I do want to have an online business that is not dependant on where I live.

By having an income that is not dependant on where I live, I create the opportunity to move closer to my family who live in an area of the country without a lot of jobs available.

I’m sure you understand the need to live in an area because either:

  •  that is where the jobs are or 
  • because you’re underwater on your house and can’t sell it to move.

Developing an online business that can be grown to replace a job’s income, can allow you…

…to move to where you want to live…
… instead of where you have to live.

That’s a pretty good reason for wanting to know more about starting an online business, don’t you think?

Natalie Sisson recently wrote a guide that is a good overview or summary of what is involved in setting up an online business.

She fills in the blanks.

After reading her guide, you will at least know “what you don’t know”,
you know!

Her book is called BYOB Guide.
And no, that doesn’t stand for Bring You Own Booze.
It stands for:
Build Your Online Business

I had the opportunity to read this book before it was published.

Natalie does a great job of explaining in a general, easy to understand way what you need to know about so you can think about starting your own online business.

After reading this book, you can begin to think about where and how you can start creating an online business for yourself. And you’ll have a better idea of what types of information you’ll need to dig deeper into.

Her book, BYOB: Build Your Online Business Guide, is well written and easy to read.
For $37 you get a pdf of her guide that you can read on your computer or iPad.
The guide (143 pages of awesome) includes templates, checklists, case studies and a resource section.

Natalie also has an audio version of her book that you can listen to in your car (while driving to that job you want to replace with your own business.)
The audio book is $10 and read by Natalie with her charming New Zealand accent.

Here is a video of Natalie talking about being a Suitcase Entrepreneur.
As I said earlier, you don't have to want to live out of a suitcase to use some of her great advice.
But if she can do this out of her suitcase, then you can do it out of your home, right?
