7 Habits You Must Quit In Order To Build an Online Business on the Side

Are you wondering how much of a sacrifice is required to build an online business if you currently have a day job and family?

This post lays out 7 habits I enjoyed but happily chose to give up in order to get serious about growing my online business.

Plus I let you in on the 1 tip that made giving up these habits not feel like a sacrifice.

Each habit took up a portion of my time and energy that was not used to grow my business. By cutting out these activities and applying more diligent focus in the last 2 years I have seen my business grow consistently from $1-2k/month to over $10k/month.

My typical online business work schedule has me working 2-3hrs each weeknight (7:30pm-10:30pm) and 6hrs per day on weekends when my son is sleeping. My total hrs worked on my business is typically around 25hrs/week (some weeks can be a lot higher).Continue reading

Reason for this Website Income Case Study

My reason for sharing what I do online is 2 fold….

1. I know that by putting myself out here I will hold myself accountable to my goal of generating $15k/month in reliable income by the time I am 35!

2. I  want to show other people who have large time commitments (father, full time job) that it is possible to make money online. At the same time

Since I have been working online I have learned the most from the courses where people show me how to do things using a case study site. Lately even when I know and use many of the methods taught I gain insight from real case studies including Ed Dales 30 day challenge and Pat Flynn’s posts on the Niche Site Duel these practical examples are great for everyone involved.

UPDATE – Oct 1, 2012 – I am now able to share with everyone the biggest reason why I am so passionate about making my authority website a success – my first child will be here in 6 months!
