Hi, my name is Mark Adams, the founder of Launch Digital Freedom. A website I created to be an educational resource, for anyone looking to launch an online business. If you like anyone else who has ever started searching for how to start an online business, then you know the frustration that goes along with sifting through heaps of useless information, and scratching your head wondering, what now?
That is where I hope Launch Digital Freedom will fill the content gap! I want anyone that is new to the subject to find content that will help them understand the topic, and find ways to fast track results with real advice! Not the kind of advice that builds false expectations or gets your hopes up!
So let me share a bit of my background and why I started my journey in building an online business…
I grew up in sunny South Africa, on the coastline of the Eastern Cape, in the metropolitan city of Port Elizabeth, now names Gqeberha. Its a small city where everything is within a twenty to thirty-minute drive and is surrounded by beautiful beaches.
After I matriculated from Grey High School, I completed my Computer Science Degree at the then, University of Port Elizabeth (UPE). I soon found a job and relocated to Johannesburg to pursue a career in Software Development.
Since then I have been working in the bustling city of Johannesburg. About two years ago I reached a point in my career where I felt I needed a new challenge, and started looking for opportunities outside of Software Development.
I missed the laid-back lifestyle of living at the coast, where I could spend time with my family taking walks on the beach. I felt I needed to escape the hussle and bussle of the busy megacity of Johnannesburg, I needed a change!
A New Start…
I felt I wanted more from life, and started searching for opportunities to realize my vision to be financially independent, to travel, and to move back to the coast for a safer more laid-back lifestyle. I was intrigued by the idea of building a roaming business, not limited by location. It would allow me to move my family and stay where ever I desired. This seemed much more inspiring.
So I asked myself the following questions:
- Is it possible to run a business completely online and not need to have a physical job?
- Could it be possible to work from home or anywhere for that matter, and could you choose where you want to live and do business?
- Could you run a business and still be available to my family?
These questions drive my vision to find practical solutions that can help anyone build a practical knowledge of the building blocks of how to run a digital business from anywhere in the world.
“Launch Digital Freedom is a platform for learning, sharing, and growing opportunities for both others and myself.”
I decided that the first step to make my dream a reality was to take action and create my website as both a resource for himself and others. I wanted a place where I could record my own journey and share what I learn to help others make the same transition a reality.
My goal is to grow Launch Digital Freedom into a rich resource for anyone looking for information about starting and running an online business. By sharing my experiences, I hope that others will be motivated to also learn and grow their digital skills to help build financial independence, through leveraging the opportunities that the internet has created.
At the end of the day, education is the key to success, with the right knowledge and skill you can achieve anything you put your mind to, it just takes time, and if you prepared to invest the time, that time will return a reward down the line!
It is both an exciting and uncertain time, but there are opportunities all around us, it just takes a fresh mindset to start to see where the opportunities are, and how we can change our lives for the better.
If you are looking to start a new venture, I wish you luck and success!
