I love supporting people to create and grow their businesses. For the last two years, I’ve quietly been taking my own advice.
In early 2015 I started looking for more ways to grow my own business. I wanted to create something not only of value to my customers but that I could also happily work on from anywhere in the world. And would you believe, I did it. Right now, I can run a profitable business from anywhere with a wifi.
What’s the business? Inspiring Adventures, of course!
Inspiring Adventures now makes travelling easier and safer. I know that simple precautions can save time and money later. That’s why I have started by offering a range of products that help protect and organise your most valuable goods on your travels.
The main way I reach customers is via Amazon in the UK and the USA. I shop on Amazon, and probably you do too, so it makes sense to also be selling my products there. For my British readers, I’m afraid my website does link to the US version of Amazon, but most of the products are available in the UK too!
This business has given me the opportunity to work for myself from anywhere in the world. And this year, we are also aiming to plant 1000 trees for our customers. I hope I can plant a tree for you!
How I started – Inspiration!
I found out about this opportunity two years ago. As mentioned in this blog, I went to Bali. I met lots of great people, including those that helped me publish my book. I also met an entrepreneur selling his products online, and he helped me learn how to get started. He still helps me to this day – Thanks J B!
Together with a small group of entrepreneurs, we launched our businesses together in 2015, helped each other find our stride in 2016, and continue to help each other grow in 2017.
There are always challenges with every business, and with every business model, and I continue to face these every day. That’s part of the learning and growth that entrepreneurs love.
Is there something stopping you?
If this kind of business is something that you’d like in your life, this short story is my inspiration to you. You can grow a business, work from multiple locations, on your own schedule, it is possible. It’s not always easy and straightforward, but it is possible. And once you know it’s possible, you can work towards it.
Stay strong, and take action!
