Reading tip: Checklist for part-time self-employment
Step 1: Find ideas for your independence

After an extensive brainstorming session, you will surely come across one or the other idea. It is useful to find answers to basic questions such as: What do I want to offer? How do I want to do this? How much effort do I want to invest in this?

Step 2: Determine what type of income you want to generate
An essential point that is also related to the generation of ideas is the question of how you would like to generate income through your independence on the Internet. Essentially, you have two options: active or passive income . You usually earn active income by running one Online shops , because you are actively selling goods and services here. On the other hand, you usually generate passive income through Affiliate marketing when on your own Website advertised on other websites. You earn money with every click on the banner ad.
The decision as to which of the two types of income you want to achieve mostly depends on the amount of work you want to do. The online shop is usually more complex because the goods and services have to be shipped. Many therefore prefer the passive way of generating income.
