There are so many reasons to start an online business, and there’s never been a better time than now to make it happen. In today’s digital age, the opportunities for starting a successful online business are practically endless.

From selling virtual services and online courses to blogging and content creation, there are countless ways to make money online. I have a couple of online businesses on the go at the moment (a travel blog plus freelance writing) and have dabbled in others in the past, including online tutoring.

Now I run my own online business, I rarely set an alarm in the morning. I wear a T-shirt and shorts pretty much every day, take as much time off as I feel like, and spend most of the year living in warm and laid back places. Compared with my former life, the differences couldn’t be much more stark.

2. Lower Startup Costs
