entrepreneur quotes

I’ve always found comfort in a good quote.

But, a really great quote elicits more than just a feeling. Rather, it inspires you to take action.

It’s my hope that these quotes I’ve hand-selected and curated for you do just that.

Here’s an idea:

Pick one and put it on your wall, on the background of your phone or laptop, or set a reminder to review it daily. Chances are by making your review of it a daily habit, you will become what the quote prompts you to be.

7 Most Profitable Business Ideas For 2019

business ideas

If you’re here, I know one thing about you:

You want to be a hero for your family and community. And you want to do it by starting the right business.

That’s why this site and newsletter exist.

With that in mind, I searched for some of the more popular business ideas for 2019 and I found some interesting ones. Some you will probably have guess — and some you wouldn’t.

Why don’t you take a look at the video below and let the wheels start turning.

Top Business Ideas For 2019 and Beyond

Marina Mogilko from Silicon Valley Girl shares her top small business ideas for 2019:

  1. Start an online course
  2. Cleaning service (especially for initial capital)
  3. Fulfillment by Amazon
  4. Meal prep and delivery
  5. Bike and scooter rental
  6. Personal trainer and instructor
  7. Accounting services

Here’s My Take On Marina’s Business Ideas

Marina gives some great advice and offers excellent ideas for beginning entrepreneurs. At the very least, these should get the juices flowing as you brainstorm what fits for you.

Personally, I think she makes selling online courses sound a bit too easy.

Yes, you can create courses. In fact, I currently have two: Run Your Blog and Heroic Branding.

However, it’s not as simple as throwing up a course and expecting hundreds or thousands to by. It takes time to build an audience and nurture those folks along until they’re ready to buy.

Then again, if you have the expertise or experience, starting a cleaning service or meal prep company in your local area is a great way to get your entrepreneurial feet wet.

Yes, it would require some upfront capital, but it is something you could technically do with a full time job.

How To Make Money: 2019 Guide

how to make money if you have a disability

Do you want to learn how to make money? I’m not just talking about from your job. I’m talking about a side business or side hustle.

You can make money doing these things online, from home, and even with an injury or disability. After all, it’s tough out there. We all need ways to bring in more income and we want to know how to make money fast.

Consider Steve Chou from My Wife Quit Her Job. He and his wife, Jennifer, started a few online businesses generating six figures. There first was an online store.

This was all centered around Steve’s desire to learn how to make money (and more of it) to support their lifestyle so his wife could stay at home with their children. She was making six figures from her and losing that would be quite the blow.

In all honesty, that is part of the reason I started this blog. I wanted to allow my wife to stay at home with our son (and now daughter as well). It wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but learning ways to make more money online has helped ease the financial pressure significantly.

We explore how to make money online (and offline) today based on research of my own and contributions from others. I hope you enjoy it and let us know if you have any questions.
