What online business is right for me?

So you know you want to start a business, but now it’s time to identify what KIND of business you want to start. It’s the age old question: “what online business is right for me?”

I know we’ve all typed it into your Google search bar before. You probably just searched it if you’re on this blog post. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could just tell us what we want? That would be nice.

But instead, you need to identify what your passion is and how to turn that into a profitable business.

Here are some things to know first:

Before answering the question of what online business is right for you, I want you to know from the start that the point of starting a business is to enjoy what you’re doing daily and to be in control of your income. Of course there are other perks like being in control of your schedule and making your own hours and being home with your family, but the most important piece is that you’re doing something you love.

That being said, I want to be clear that this article is not about what is going to make you the most money fastest. Starting an online business is not a get rich quick scheme no matter what some TikTokers make you think. STarting an online business takes time, energy, and a lot of patience. 

It’s extremely fulfilling, but it’s also hard work.

So how do we identify what online business is right for you?

Here’s an exercise I want you to do: 

  1. Grab a piece of paper or open a Google Doc. I want you to now create a massive list of all of your skills. Don’t sell yourself short. Any skills you have because of your current or past jobs plus any skills you may have acquired on your own time. 
    1. Keep in mind that skills can be transferred. Example: If you are a chef, but you want to start an online business because you’re tired of being on your feet all day and you are over the food industry, you can pull your skills as a chef into a different industry. A chef runs an entire kitchen. You are in charge of an entire team. These skills can potentially transfer into you being an amazing online business manager and helping someone else run their own business! 
  2. After you’ve made a list of all of your skills, I want you to make a list of all of your personal characteristics. What kind of person are you? What quirks do you have? What strengths do you have? 
  3. Now I want you to review those two lists you put together. Look at how many qualifications you have. The next step is to make a list of everything you are extremely passionate about. What could you talk about for hours everyday? What kind of Instagrams and TikToks do you love to follow? What kind of podcasts do you find yourself listening to? What blog posts do you read? Etc. 
  4. The final step is to bring all three lists together and figure out where your skills and personal characteristics can fall into place with one of your passions. To help you out, here is a list of potential businesses you can start (keep in mind this is not an extensive list and some careers you should get a certification for).
