I discovered that it was possible to make money online in 2011, at a stage in my life when I felt totally lost. Back then I was working as a programmer at Microsoft headquarters in the United States, and although I had a prestigious and well-paid job, inside I was not happy. I knew that I didn’t want to spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, locked in an office with no windows. I also knew that I wanted to travel more, live great adventures and visit all the wonderful places that I still had to see. There was only one problem: I had no idea how to do all of that without my lottery going. Luckily, one day the 4-hour work week fell into my hands, a book that showed me that it was possible to dedicate myself to a profession or create a 100% online business that would give me the freedom, flexibility and money to carry my ideal life.
As a result of reading that book I started to investigate… and only a year and a half later I had managed to set up a small website that generated around € 1,500 per month. The rest is history. Thanks to that small business I was able to quit my job at Microsoft, put a backpack on my shoulder and make my dream of traveling the world come true. Since then I live on the Internet, and I can proudly say that I lead the life that I have decided to live. But do you know what is best of all? That I'm not the only one who has succeeded. In recent years I have been fortunate to be able to help thousands of people reinvent themselves or earn extra money online thanks to new professions and digital businesses. And in this post I want to help you too. Index [show] The advantages of professions and online businesses My goal with Vivir al Máximo is to help you create a life that suits you, whatever that means to you. Maybe in your case it is having a job that fills you, that allows you to lead a good standard of living and in which you can take 3 months of vacation per year. Maybe your priority is your family, and what you want is to be able to take your children to school and have free time to play with them every afternoon. Or maybe your dream is to have geographic freedom and live traveling, as I did in its day. As I say, the definition of "a life for you" is something personal. But in my experience, whatever you are looking for, the professions and businesses that allow you to earn money online are one of the best options to get there because they have a series of advantages that traditional businesses and jobs do not offer, such as ... Geographical freedom Schedule flexibility Income detached from time Low costs to start Plus, they don't require official degrees, going to college, or training for years. Unfortunately, even though earning a living (or generating extra income) through the Internet is a great opportunity, very few people take this path because they don't even know it exists. Therefore, in this post I want to explain what are the best professions and online businesses to earn money online in 2020, what advantages and disadvantages each one has, and what you need to start. And if that were not enough, I will give you real examples of people who have successfully traveled these paths to inspire you, and I will share with you the best resources so that you can follow in their footsteps. Ready? Well let's do it 🙂 IMPORTANT: The options that I propose below to earn money online are real professions and business models that require work and dedication. Here you will not find magic methods that promise you passive income for life without any effort on your part. In fact, later I explain what are the ways to generate income online that you should avoid, either because they do not work, because they are dishonest or because they are directly a scam. If you are looking for easy money or fast money I am very sorry, but this is not your blog. How to make money online: the 13 best ways to do it 1. Create a personal blog and monetize it Make money online with a blog There are more than 600 million blogs in the world. Surely you already follow several of them (for example this one), and maybe you even have your own or have had it at some point in your life ... What you may not know is that a blog can be the basis of a business that generates thousands of euros every month. What is a blog and how you can earn money with it A blog is a type of web page in which its author regularly publishes content on a specific topic: personal development, marketing, video games, fishing ... or anything else you can imagine. Unlike other business models like niche pages, where the goal is to get as much traffic as possible, the key to monetizing a blog is to create an audience of readers who read to you week after week. To do this, you need to publish articles, videos or podcasts that bring visits to your website, and then get those visits to subscribe to your mailing list so that you can inform them every time you publish something new. In this way, those users will stop being occasional readers and will become subscribers. By reading you every week, your subscribers will start to see you as a friend and an expert in your sector, which after a while will allow you to generate income in different wa
