Sunday Shares #06: Internet Business or Offline Business?

In this week’s Sunday Shares, I have three great reads for you. These are some articles that I read in the last week that I felt compelled to share.

As usual, I share a link that resonated with me somehow, and I talk about what it meant to me and what you can get from it.

Here are this weeks Sunday Shares:

(1) How To Survive Sitting All Day

I spend a lot of time at the computer all day and most of that is sitting down looking at my screen while typing or doing research.

I’m pretty sure that I’m doing it wrong which is why this article was an important read for me.

Well at least I got something right as the article suggests that every now and then you should move around and stand whenever possible. Every now and then, I take a break, get up from the computer and go do something else. It takes the strain off my eyes and I’m sure it’s good for my back.

Any affiliate marketer who spends their time sitting at the computer for a greater part of the day will appreciate this read from NerdFitness, a blog that I read occasionally but should probably read more often.

(2) The Prepared Writer’s Process for Creating Excellent Content Every Day

I don’t blog as often as I should and it’s evident when you go through the archives of this blog.

This is why this article happened to catch my eye as I was going through some bookmarks during the past week. It’s from Katie aka The Wellness Mama over on Copyblogger and it’s packed with actionable content aimed at anyone whose job is to create content such as myself.

I’ve had the page opened on my computer since I opened it up because I want to go through the 7 steps outlined so that I can create a routine that gets me going every single day.

(3) It Takes Money To Make Money – The Fallacy

One of the things you keep hearing people say is that ‘it takes money to make money’. Not that it isn’t true but Kyle turns the saying on it’s head by comparing getting started with an offline business vs. getting started with an online business.

This is why I’ve always believed that creating a website around your passion or interest is the perfect business because you can start with less than $100 and you’ll be profitable with a few sales. You don’t have to put yourself in debt like when you’re trying to start an offline business.

But a lot of people don’t see it that way. They don’t even consider that owning your own income producing website is having your own business.

But check out Kyle’s post and you’ll see that it all makes sense.

Three great links to read this week. I’m sure you’ll learn something (that is why I share them). More great links to come with the next Sunday Shares.
