5 Reasons to start an Online Business | GrowthStart Insights EP02

In this episode we will be discussing 5 reasons to start an Online Business.

Hello and welcome to the second episode of the GrowthStart Insights podcast. In this podcast we’re going to be talking about five reasons why you should start your online business today, let’s get into it.

Reason one: Additional Income

Who wouldn’t want to earn some extra money every month. It might not be your full salary you’re getting from your day job, but every single penny that you earn extra really helps in this tough economy. Think about school fees that you need to pay or that little bit of extra spending that you want to spend on your special someone or yourself or education. It’s always a good idea to use additional income to better yourself, to better your business, to better your profession.

Reason 2: Making your Own Decisions

Doesn’t it sound great to be able to make your own decisions. It’s your business and you can literally run it the way that you want to. If you want to spend 10 hours and work till midnight, you can. If you want to spend 30 minutes a day on it, you can. The possibilities are really endless here.

Reason 3: Pursuing your Passion

Doesn’t it sound amazing to actually do something that you want to do with your time. Now every day job might not be ideal, but you can, in your side hustle or online business, really do what you feel matters to the world. You can provide value in the space where you really feel that you belong.

Reason 4: Independence

And I’m not talking about being independent of your parents or only in the financial sense, but working for yourself allows you to own your own time. You can pay your bills and you can most likely work from anywhere, whether that be from home or a holiday destination.

Reason 5: Quitting that awful day job

How many of us have these day jobs that we really despise and we would want to with all means do something else with our time and with our lives. Well if you run an online business and you really make a success of it that can be a possibility.


Now starting an online business really takes hard work. It takes time and takes dedication and you really have to plan out what you want to do with it. You can spend a little bit of time every day, firstly planning what you want to do, thinking about things like the product, distribution, marketing, sales and you will really see a difference in a couple of days. The next thing that you need to do is actually write what you thought about on a piece of paper.

These five reasons to do it might not be the only reasons, but they’re definitely a good start and I think a lot of us can relate to that. If you have any other reasons that you think it’s a good enough reason to start an online business, please put them in the comments. We’ll appreciate it.
