Written by Henry Tanaka

Many people want to achieve financial freedom and they know very well that running their own business has always and will always berepparttar best road to financial freedom. Here are some reasons to remind these people why online business isrepparttar 150178 best way toward financial freedom.

1. Online Business provides a HUGE market.

Internet is not just expanding, it’s BOOMING. In 2001, there are more than 500 millions people usingrepparttar 150179 internet. By 2006, more than 1.1 billion people will start using internet. Doing business with such a huge market sounds good doesn’t it? If you are able to create an effective online business that is able to reach out torepparttar 150180 global customers,repparttar 150181 potential of profit earning is really high.

Having your own online business does not necessarily mean huge capital. I know a couple of people who earn thousands of dollars selling things off E-bay, which byrepparttar 150182 way costs less than $20 to open up a store.

Another suggestion is to join an online network marketing company. Robert Kiyosaki,repparttar 150183 author of bestseller "Rich Dad Poor Dad" suggests that network marketing is a cheap way to start doing business. I will talk more about starting your own online business in my other articles.

2. Some online Business creates passive income.

This isrepparttar 150184 key to financial freedom. By building up your passive income, you are on your way to financial freedom. The word passive is defined as: “receiving or subjected to an action without responding or initiating an action in return”.

The word passive income is to have an income in which you don’t have to put much action in return. Many people refused to believe this concept of being able to earn money without doing anything. It is true that you won’t be able to earn anything if you do not do ANYTHING!
