The New Age of Entrepreneurs

Many people these days are turning towards making their own income through using their skills and education to become profitable entrepreneurs. However, the door to door version of the typical start-up entrepreneur we all know, has changed over the years. The new age of entrepreneurs are now online, not just doing what they learn about but instead, doing what they are truly passionate about and love.

Online entrepreneurs are making their income today by sharing their knowledge, experiences and skills through many affordable platforms like WordPress blogs, YouTube videos, e-commerce stores and even through online jobs like Forex Trading and social media managing, online life coaching and so much more. Through the added power of social media businesses are able to flourish by just having a simple online presence. According to Thomas Smale of Entrepreneur, “There isn’t a single entrepreneur out there that can’t benefit from some extra inspiration and motivation. We can all learn something by following successful individuals. It sparks inspiration and learning from their real-life business experiences can help us all on our own entrepreneurial journeys.”

The reason behind this is because the start-up is cheaper than physically having to set up a business and get customers to come to you or go to them. We live in a day and age where people want to have easy access to products and services without the hassle of getting up and going out to reach them. As for taxes, these are something that depends on their owner and what they’re selling although, in most cases taxes are barely considered sometimes because money flows directly into the owners account. “The cost of opening a shop and carrying stock is simply too high in this financial climate. But thanks to the convenience of technology, I’m still able to connect with clients without needing to incur the cost of having a physical shop,” said Blogger of The Lazy Makoti, Mogau Seshoene.

All in all many people are now switching online when it comes to building their business brand and are reaping the benefits of their hard work through it. The new age of entrepreneurs are a lot more self-sufficient and goal orientated.
