Muse – Daily writing prompt
When I first heard about The 4-Hour Workweek, I definitely had my reservations. The title definitely sounds like a scam.
However, it was on many top reading lists so I decided to have an open mind going in.
I was blown away when I got to the part about building a “muse” business. These are basically businesses that once properly structured, will generate automated income without any, or hardly any, management on your end.
The automatic marketing, manufacturing, shipping, payment processing, and customer service made available by today’s technology allows someone to essentially generate income that allows a person to spend a few hours a week checking in, but essentially unplugged from the business. This removes the need to make money, and allows the owner to have time, money, and location freedom. By doing so, they are able to travel or pursue other interests.
The reason these businesses are called “muse businesses” is that they aren’t the end-all-be-all of a persons life. It’s mainly used to take money off of the table.
I’m currently taking an online course by best-selling author and entrepreneur Ramit Sethi called Zero to Launch, which teaches aspiring entrepreneurs like myself how to turn your passion into a fully operational and profitable online business.
To be honest, I’m so stoked to be on this path to learning and creating a system that will generate income on something I am passionate about. So I guess this won’t technically be a muse business, but I imagine it’ll work the same way.
I’ll definitely be updating my progress on my blog, so be sure to follow to be a part of my journey! 🙂
