That Dirty Four-Letter Word Still Applies in Online Business

Over the years I’ve met a lot of people who want to own an online business.   No matter what country they hail from, a large portion of them are firmly focused on the old promise, “get rich while you sleep”.

It’s certainly true that you can earn while you’re sleeping, I do it all the time, but there’s a big condition to that promise – WORK.  I’m not talking about a little work either.  It’s a lot of work to be self-employed, let alone to become a rich entrepreneur.

The difference is you’ll hopefully have chosen to do something you truly enjoy so it won’t seem so much like work. You’ll probably be able to set your own schedule too.  You’ll own all of the success (and failure) and can take pride in your accomplishments.  You’ll work happily, but work you shall if you want to be successful.

With that in mind, we’ve designed a meme for you to share to inspire yourself or others.

Successful Canadian Entrepreneurs Work Hard

Canadians are no strangers to work, we’re known far and wide for our work ethic. If hard work is all it takes, Canada will soon be full of successful online business owners! But for those who are here to learn how to get rich quickly and easily, take your ball and go home – there’s nothing to see here.

Truer words were never spoken but it’s SOOOOOOOO worth it to work at home or even make extra money online.


There’s no such thing as easy money unless you win it or inherit it. 🙂

I had it much easier when I worked 9-5 but I wasn’t nearly as happy.
