Blogging; A way to connect with people by sitting at your home.
A way to help people, solve their problems and a way to enjoy stress-free life.
I started blogging just 2.5 years back. On 14th June, 2011 I decided to quit my job and launched my first blog on 9th September, 2011 to become full-time blogger.
These two years gave me a lot of experience and day by day I am becoming a better blogger.
In this journey I interviewed some of the best bloggers/internet marketers in the world and learnt a lot from them.
Lessons which cannot be learnt without making relations with people.
Such lessons helped me to do better in blogging and I generated good income online. I generated $7000+ with Google AdSense (I know this is very less amount, but as I never focus on AdSense so this was just an addon) in last 2 years, and made money by flipping sites and doing affiliate marketing.
In short, I was doing awesome by working from home.
Things were going awesome as I was in my comfort zone and I was not spending my time to do some extra ordinary things.
So what forced me to leave my home and I shifted to Delhi?
And what were the things which forced me to take this crucial decision (as I used to say that I will never leave my home because I am making enough money by working from home)?
Here I am going to through light on some of the great benefits which I am getting after coming our of my comfort zone and how things are working at my end now.
1. Time/Task Management
This is something which you cannot learn by sitting at your home, because there is no-one to instruct you.
At your home you have full freedom.. you can get up at 11:00 o'clock.. you can eat anything any time.. you can go anywhere.. you can do whatever your want…
But still I was lacking somewhere.
Although I was making money by sitting at home but things were creating obstacles in path… things which seems to working perfectly were actually not perfect.
Information overload was obstructing my path.
2. Money Management
A penny saved is a penny earned. ~ Benjamin Franklin
Even I have read this quote too many times but the actual meaning I understood after coming to Delhi.
Obviously this was a huge SUM, but I never cared about it.
This was the time when I came to know my total expenditures of a month, because I never cared to write them down and see where my cash was flowing.
This little move helped me cut-down my expenses and utilize that money in right direction.
3. Working Environment
Working environment can be made at home but the number of interactions which you will do in a company cannot be done while working at home.
Here I am learning the tactics to work with team and learning many business tactics while working with Ravi.
4. Widen my reach
I have widen my reach where I am attending too many seminars while staying in Delhi.
Meeting too many people who are helping me to learn something new.
5. Mentality for Money
My mentality for money changed completely.
Where I was satisfied with $1000-$1500 by working from home, the same money is looking very less now.
I was completely satisfied with my work and money flow, as I was not comparing myself with someone, my expenditures were very less, my requirements were very less, and I was not paying attention for accumulating bigger money.
PS: I was working for long-term vision where small flow of money was very satisfactory for me.
I was very happy while working from home (I am still happy) because things were going very awesome.
These are few of the things which I could learn in next 4-5 years while working from home.
But who would like to spend 5 precious years of his/her life when same thing can be done in 1-2 years.
This one mind-virus helped me to take the quick decision and I started working with ClicksBazaar. Along with doing blogging, we are working on some projects while will be available in the market in coming 1-2 months.
My own quote:
If I can save 4-5 years of my life by putting myself in non-comfort zone right now, I wouldn't think twice for my decision.
