One of the most common questions aspiring online entrepreneurs often ask is, can you start an online business around your job?
The short answer is, YES! I built my online businesses while partially disabled, working part-time and as a stay-at-home dad. If I can do it, you can do it.
Click the video below to hear what my mentor and co-founder of the SFM, Stuart Ross has to say about it.

Stuart was working as a real estate agent while building his online business and the majority of the members in our online community are also building their online businesses on the side. Stuart actually replaced his 9 to 5 income as an online affiliate marketer within his first six months!
He reminds us though, that online success doesn't happen overnight and that his rapid success isn't the norm. He was young and without many responsibilities that older people have, so he was truly able to focus on achieving his goal of lifestyle freedom.
Stuarts says that you have to be realistic, but even if it took 18 months or longer to replace your 9 t0 5 income online, wouldn't that be worth it, if your online business provided you with freedom, flexibility and passion for what you do?
People build their online businesses after work and on weekends. As long as you're consistent in your efforts, you can make it work. A little effort on a regular basis will get you closer to your dream of financial independence.
He says to find people you like, and trust, and enjoy learning from and do what they did.
I'm here to help you. The lifestyle freedom that can come with having an online business is realistically within your reach.

Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My 'vision' moment happened while on vacation with my kids. I realized that we'd made very few memories as a family, because of health issues that have prevented me from doing much travel, and because my career has me working weekends.
My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids' childhood and making quality memories together. That's the vision that keeps me motivated. I'm putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
"Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I'm investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you're enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you're learning from."
The most important investment I've ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The SFM will show you how to use the internet as a tool to support yourself from any location. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing. Unlike traditional education, you'll have passion for what you're learning!
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! I live by this principle in every aspect of my life. Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead.
My top goal is lifestyle freedom and knowing that the internet makes that possible, I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM. Their experience and coaching allowed me to avoid expensive mistakes and succeed the second time around. They've made me into a successful online entrepreneur!
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don't know your values, then it's time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values.
One of my main values is family. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I'm always available to make memories with my wife and kids.
God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
