How to Build a freedom Business?
This is the post I promise you guys this morning.
I know these days everyone is interested in finding a freedom business or start a side hustle to support their lifestyles and gain more excitement while making money.
I actually wanted to do a video on this topic but got busy with the content writing project I undertook for TotelTek IT Solutions for a website they are they are launching this week. The website is for a Commercial and Residential cleaning company in Australia which have grown up to become a thriving business over the last decade.
The Business owner/Client had a great story when I talked their client yesterday before starting to write the content, how he has started as a Sole Proprietor and grew it to a business where he have employed more than 15 staff by 2013. So we have a point here: You may be by yourself initially but you are going to make it big one day.
So let’s get to the point, “What is the one thing you can do to get started building a freedom business?”
I’ve been asking this question few years back and I wish I got started earlier.
Everything in life has a start and first steps…
The steps are:
Become an Authority by building a Skill set and gain expertise
I never believed it’s easier to do this until I dedicated myself for self-education. I learned 99% of the business skills and acquired new skills through the day-to-day hustle than when I was in business school.
So how can you build my authority? In a lot of cases all it needs is a simple website with a message saying what you can do.
Learn Website Design with WordPress CMS in a day and build your own online platforms. This one skill will help you do wonders in the years to come. If you want to succeed in the digital economy or simply want to enter the online business world, it’s vital to learn how to do the fundamentals yourself.
Do you have a skill or your previous experiences can help solve others problems? If you have found a couple of people in your area who you can help, there will be millions of people out there which you can connect with online and help them solve their problems.
Last week I helped one of my friends get online with his iPro images Photography passion and I’m really happy to see how he manage his side hustle during the weekends covering events and weddings. If you are in the West Midlands, United Kingdom I would highly recommend Chudy to capture your moments of life. He’s such a nice guy to work with.
One of my online businesses is centred around building websites and consulting companies to make more revenue online. So I always try to see how best we can position a person and build their online personal brand in the shortest possible time.
Edited (12.01.2014) You can take Learn to create Websites and Blogs and rank in 24 hours or less.
As you can see in Chudy’s case, he has a specialised skill set which has built during the years around his passion and now he has started to move on to make a side income. He is fulltime employed during the week so if you need to get in touch shoot him an email on this page.
I’ve been telling my closest friends why they need to start a website which simply describe their skills and have a nice profile picture telling what they do and what skills they have to help others. This very first step will put you on the top 5% of the achievers in the world.
One of the sad parts is even though I tell my closest friends and people who I see have a deep passion but having a hard time with money, that I will do their site for free! They still think that they are not ready to build their personal legacy and start acquiring brand equity.
At this moment, to register your personal domain name it would only cost you less than £7 and if you are serious I will host it on my server for you for free (I can’t do this anymore due to high volume on websites I have on my servers in 2014). So if you’re serious just shoot me a mail or call me up and I will set your site and show you some SEO strategies.

So after getting online, What’s Next?
Start building your personal brand
When you have experiences, built up skills to help the people, you can start telling people “hey, I do this and I can help you solve this problem or teach you how to dance, work on Photoshop or play the guitar. I have realised that, some of the people does not know how to market their skills and make it a business.
When you have your personal website, you can showcase your skills, expertise and tell people, fill out this contact form or call me now.
Your personal brand is your own house where you build and showcase your skills, so make it look good-by learning and experimenting more.
One of the beauties is that on your own personal branded website, you can display your project work and your life in the years to come. So if you built it in a way that displays authority in a well-chosen niche, you can succeed.
If you look at this site I started in few weeks back and thought let’s use FernandoBiz.com and start content marketing.
If you guys are interested I have a blog post on Futurist Business Blog which mentions about some online resources to acquire knowledge. This might be outdated now and you have enough article on this blog now to dig for weeks (12.01.2014)
So then what is stopping people from doing so?
Thoughts like “I’m not good enough”. “I’m not an authority in anything”. “People will laugh at me”. “Who would want to buy what I have to offer – there is much cooler, talented, amazing, good-looking people out there than little old me”. Trust me all these are nonsense and if you don’t start from somewhere you will never get it done.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson
So… here are the actual steps in a very basic form for your understanding:
1. Get a domain name.
I use NAMECHEAP because they are cheap and also they don’t try and up sell you the world like some other providers like GoDaddy, I’m very unhappy with GoDaddy’s service. That’s why I promote Namecheap on my blog. (You can see the side bars for the links which will take you their home page)
2. Install WordPress and put a website on that domain name
This is something you may not know how to but it’s very easy and yesterday when I showed Tadas how to do it while he’s watching my PC scree from Amsterdam, Netherlands. Give me call and I will set it up for you and let’s get your site up live.
If you want a cool website you can head to Genesis or Theme Forest and buy a theme which will cut your time trying to design or pay a huge amount of money for your designer. But if you want something unique I highly advice pay and get the best possible website to stand out from the crowd.
You can find a great freelancer at or and get awesome looking website or simply got to the Contact us page and get in touch with me and I will modify these things for you. Or else get one my designers at www.clickdo.co.uk to have world-class website.
When you have done all the above it’s time for that killer Business Card
Make it look creative and communicate your message boldly. Recently our Chief designer at ClickDo Ltd., designed a cool business card for her and I think I will have to get her to design mine as well. (Have done several for me and for so many business owners in London and around the world by 2014 now.)
And then start going out and meeting people, have conversations, go meet your college lectures and ask how you can help them, ask your friends, make new connections and move with passion.
Initially things will be rough but it will get good and when you start rolling it will grow big like the guy who I mentioned earlier who runs the service business in Australia.
After all, when you build a business with your skills and knowledge you get freedom, fun and adventure which is the lifestyle you want.
So get started today and I will share more in my next post.
This site will bring you the hands on personal online business experiences and best tips, strategies to build online business empire 🙂
