5 Lifestyle Businesses That Can Set You Free, Part I

by You Are Rich
A “lifestyle business” is a small business that you can run from nearly anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. Life style businesses are all about letting you live how you want to live, designing your life as you choose, while running your own small company. Done right, in a lifestyle business you have no 80-hour work weeks, no need for venture capital funding, no rented office spaces, no warehouses, and usually no employees.

This isn’t traditional entrepreneurship of working yourself ragged to build a company. Rather than you living for the business, the business exists to take care of your needs while affording you the freedom to live the life you choose. Your goal in a lifestyle business generally isn’t to sell the company off in ten years for a hundred million dollars – that’s an entirely different ballgame.

Instead, it’s a compromise of money earned and time off. Depending on the business you choose, how hard you work at it, how effective you are at building your business, and how much time you like to take off, your income might be $50,000 a year, $200,000 a year, or in some cases, possibly even a million dollars a year. You decide how big you want to build your business, whether you want to do it alone or with employees or contractors, where you want to work, when you want to work and so forth.
