The Dream of Time Freedom
For me, the biggest benefit that I can imagine from my online endeavors is the time freedom that can be realized by those that find success online.
I’ve always been a bit of a romantic in terms of being the guy that sells everything, buys a van and takes off for far away, or not so far away, adventures!
The problem with this idea is, for most people, is that you still need to have some sort of income coming in to be able to survive.
Many that play the adventure game of life have found that you can work remotely, wherever you want and pretty much whenever you’d like.
In my mind, that is the ultimate goal, to have the time freedom to do anything and everything I would enjoy doing without that pesky job holding me back!
So What Exactly is Time Freedom?
As stated above, time freedom is something that allows us to live a life free from the worries of the common worker.
With time freedom I do not have to get up at a certain time, go to bed at a certain time, eat at a specific time or do anything on any real schedule unless I choose to do so.
The choice is what is key here. The choice to do what I want, when I want.
Time freedom could mean other things to other people, but for me it’s all about having the freedom to what I want with the time that I have and one thing to keep in mind here is…
…you can always earn more money, get more things, whatever, but you can never get the time you spend back making it a more precious commodity than any possession you could imagine.
How does Affiliate Marketing Help One Achieve Time Freedom?
So you are ready to quit that 9 to 5 and sell most of your material possessions and go for a drive, eh?
Well, hold on.
There are many types of remote work that you could do to achieve your cravings for a more nomadic lifestyle, but the one that sticks out for me is affiliate marketing
With affiliate marketing you have many options. First, your business is very flexible and once you have “things” set up, you can work from anywhere you would like.
Affiliate marketing also does not require a huge start up investment and once learned is a skill, or many skills, that will help you find the lifestyle and time freedom to do it all.
But how does affiliate marketing help you gain the time freedom you are aiming for?
A Semi-residual, Semi-Passive Income…Anywhere!
Like many other forms of online marketing, affiliate marketing in general does not require someone to be in one place as you would with a more traditional brick and mortar type of business.
There are those that choose to open an office or create a home office, but you can perform the necessary skills that will allow you to generate an income with affiliate marketing just about anywhere.
If you would like to buy that RV and travel across the country, it would be no problem to be able to check up on your business and even start new marketing/niche campaigns as long as you have a laptop and Internet connection.
While it may take some time to hone in on what is working in that campaign and what is not, you should be able to create content to your audience along the way and maintain your freedom on the road!
Look, one of the great things about affiliate marketing or online marketing in general is that I am working towards never having to be an economic slave.
Whether it is a lack of money or time, learning how to market products and services online is a path towards becoming more independent.
Financial independence and providing the time freedom that I seek is exactly what you can accomplish with affiliate marketing.
The question is, when do you want to start?
