[USER=53375]@bb1[/USER], here in Australia, Flying Solo, itself, is an example of an online business. You can join as a free or paid member. Another example of this type of business model is https://www.soarcollective.com

And a couple of the more well-known examples are:

Pat Flynn – https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/
Pat went into the world of online business after he was made redundant from his architecture job back in 2008 when the economy imploded. He is well respected in his niche. He uses an affiliate model to make money. He offers his followers a lot of free stuff that he has created himself, that is really useful if you’re just starting out. He has a podcast where he talks about his experiences and interviews other entrepreneurs.

Shane and Jocelyn Sams – https://flippedlifestyle.com/ This husband and wife team are ex-teachers who wanted to be able to spend more time with their children. They’ve been going 5 or 6 years and use a membership model to make money. They also have a podcast where they do coaching calls with members of their community. They tell it like it really is (the good, bad and the ugly) with no BS or sugar coating.

And a couple of examples of people that I’ve helped or worked with

Shahan Cheong — http://www.throughouthistory.com/ Shahan started blogging about his twin passions of history and antiques back in 2008 or 2009 because he was bored. I helped him figure out how to monetise his blog. He earns a small, but steady revenue from ads, is working towards adding in YouTube to the mix and he also buys antiques, does them up and sells them online. He also works part-time in a more traditional type of job.

John McCarthy – https://www.flymehigh.com/ — sets up online sales funnels for a specific type of business and then earns a commission on the leads/sales that come through. I’ve worked with him to set up an online diagnostic tool and test one of his funnels. He is also a no BS person. He has been doing this for the last 7 years and did non-online marketing for 20 years before that.

I think you can see a theme here … every person who has success in online business is using the expertise they’ve built over years of effort. They are simply using the internet to reach more people, often in a way that’s different from what they did before.

Hope that answers your question :-)
