Starting an internet business has never been easier as we stand now at the threshold of the digital revolution. You can create a website with a few clicks from the comfort of your home and start a profitable business within minutes. We are presented with an overwhelming choice of cost efficient and even free Do-It-Yourself e-commerce software and web publishing applications at our disposal. The international distribution flow of goods and services has been made more efficient than ever with the proliferation of B2B websites and wholesale dropshipping networks - one wonders why there aren't many more internet entrepreneurs taking advantage of such accessible technology and the increasingly disappearing trade barriers.
Why do so many people still get stuck in a 9-5 office job or jobs which they can't derive satisfaction and personal fulfillment from? The answer is that they simply are not aware of the possibilities out there and how easy it is to pursue the alternative lifestyle of an internet entrepreneur. Fear, skepticism and the self-crippling notion that you need the next groundbreaking e-business idea to be successful makes people grab on to the status quo.
