CHAPTER 1 – Business Start up Tips

Thanks for investing in this little book – I hope it will help you achieve more freedom in your life. Be it time or money or travel – or whatever else feels limited at the moment. 

If you are looking to turn your passions and talents into a business, this book will show you various strategies to achieve that. 

If you hate your job, but don’t know how to replace the income, you will find plenty of ideas – for many different genres and skill sets. 

Or – if you would love to travel indefinitely, but need a location independent business that you can run from anywhere in the world – you will find many options here. 

I collected this massive list of business ideas in response to frequent questions from my readers – of both my books and my website

I’ve been a permanent traveller for the last 3 years while running several online businesses, incl. Kindle Publishing, SEO Consulting and a Travel Blog with a 50K following. 

bestselling author. 

I also noticed that many would love that kind of freedom – not necessarily to travel as much as I do – but to be free to decide about their lives in any way they wish. Most don’t know how to go about it or think it’s impossible – or that it would take years to achieve. 

  1. That’s why I decided to broaden my reach beyond just Digital Nomads to help people achieve freedom and independence on their terms – and with their special talents.


The Basics – Start Here

Before we get to the actual list of 597 business ideas, let’s go over how to proceed once you find a business that appeals to you. 

Obviously, this short book cannot cover how to get started with 597

different business types. In a few cases, links to helpful resources or an excellent course have been included. For all other cases a simple Google search of “How to become a….” with your business choice will provide you with an abundance of articles, books and Youtube videos that will take you through the next steps. 

Once you make your choice, spend a few days reading everything you possibly can about your chosen business option, so you have a thorough understanding of what is required and what it takes to succeed. 

Next, you need to write down a basic business plan. Rather than running blindly and hoping for the best, set some clear goals and timelines and adjust along the way as needed. 

Start by writing out what your goals are:

– What level of income are you looking for? 

– Part-time/full-time? 

– How much time can you invest each week? 

– What skills do you need to learn? 

– How will you learn them? And how long will it take you? 

– Is a financial investment required? If so how much and how will you generate that start-up fund? 

– Lay out a time line. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure, just try your best and put something on paper. You can always adjust along the way. 

Your progress will be very different when you know exactly where you are going and how you plan to get there, rather than just starting

“somewhere” and hoping it will “somehow” happen. 

It won’t! 

Keep reviewing that plan each week and make adjustments. 

Set reasonable expectations in the beginning and work out a clear action plan on how you can meet those expectations. 

For example: if you are aiming for an extra $1000 per month, figure out how many hours of freelance work you will have to perform per month, or how many products you would have to sell each month to reach that number. 

Then, break it down per day and you will have a much clearer path to reaching your goal.
