I am an online marketer for 5 years now. I had a 9-5 job before for about 3 years before I decided to quit. So today, I wanted to share with you how I live my life as an internet marketer.
It’s not as glamorous and easy as you might think. In fact, sometimes it’s actually boring. I always see blog posts showing internet marketers living a luxurious life where they wake up everyday in their beautiful homes, drive expensive cars, own a private jet and are always travelling around the world. Although this kind of lifestyle might be true to some internet marketers, this is not actually how I live my life. So, “how do you live your life as an internet marketer?”, you might ask. Well, below is basically a rundown of my normal day:
I always start my day with a healthy breakfast. Then i’ll check my emails, comments from my websites then i’ll try to answer as many as possible within the span of 2 hours. Then i’ll probably start writing new content for my blogs or if not, make videos or whatever project I had in mind for that day or week. This usually happens in the span of 3-4 hours. Then, after I finish it, i’ll eat my lunch. Then on the afternoon, I will probably try to be more productive by watching informative videos or perhaps read as much as I can on whatever topic that interests me on that day. And then i’ll go for a quick run with my dog then go home and eat my dinner then i’ll probably play video games or watch movies. And then just before I am about to sleep, I will make a to-do list for tomorrow so that everything is planned out already.
When I am not busy with work, I try to visit my parents’ house and spend time with them or probably go somewhere fun with my friends. I love to travel so I also allocate some of income for that purpose. I love the fact that even if I am travelling, either in local or international destinations, I am still able to earn without doing much during my travels because of how easy and automated the systems are and today’s technology.
It is not always easy when you are an internet marketer. Sometimes, it gets too boring. Sometimes, you also ran out of ideas on how to further improve your business. Sometimes also, you fail probably because you invested too much into something that did not become big or you probably made a wrong decision about something. But the negative far outweighs the positive and I am trying to stick to being positive. Having a positive mind worked wonders in my life and in my businesses. My past failures drove me to do better in the future. My disappointment has turned into hope. My doubt has turned to faith. And my frustration turned to strength.
Anyway, this is just about me and how I live it. It could be different for me. Everyone has set different goals for themselves. So, it’s really up to you how you will live your life. As long as you’re happy, then go for it. Cheers!
