There are countless options by which you can make money and follow your dreams; however, it’s totally up to you as which way you want to take.

Although, the name “Entrepreneurship” is good enough to give you goose bumps, it’s an unending journey full of hurdles, setbacks, and failures. By reading success stories and interviews of famous entrepreneurs, you may feel that this field can give you money, name and fame; what you don’t see is the long sleepless nights and failed meetings that they all had to face at some point.

I know professional bloggers who earn more from blogging in a month than you do in a year, or say five years. To those who are serious about doing something larger than their life by coming out of their comfort zone, blogging can throw countless opportunities from all the directions. Let’s not talk about that at this stage.

I use professional WordPress blog, and will recommend the same to all the professional bloggers; however, you can count on other options as well.

The content that you write on the blog is your product, how well you write shows your communication skills (Did I ever mention only oral communication?), how you promote your content shows your marketing skills, how you network with fellow professional bloggers shows your networking skills, and last but not the least how you handle the initial obstacles in blogging shows your never-give-up approach. All in all, you don’t need to invest one million to become an entrepreneur, you can simply invest Rs. 5000 (or $100) and start your own blog to enter this field.
