Welcome to Home Business Navigator, a site specially designed to nurture the needs of anyone looking to start their own successful home-based business and breakout from the traditional mold of a day job or of those who want to take their existing home-based business to the next level.
I am Nick just a regular dude with a modest background who faces the same challenges of life that you do on a daily basis. You can look upon me as someone who has successfully mastered the art of operating a full-time business from the comfort of my cozy home with all the freedom, lifestyle and passive income that a home-based business offers.
A Bit of a Back Story
Growing up I always found everything that bound me quite frustrating. Whether it was the fixed hours of school or all the monotonous nonflexible shackles of the society into which every one of us is being programmed into since early childhood.
At 21, after completing my Graduate degree in Economics I went to UK for pursuing an MBA specializing in Marketing and Post Graduation in Management & E-Commerce in one of the reputed colleges in London. Consequently, I worked for some top organizations in London for around 12 years in sales, marketing and management roles.
But, You Know What ?…
I was not at all happy with the daily grind involved in my day job.
Even though it seemed to be all nice and positive from the outside it was actually rampant with all sorts of dirty office politics, leg pulling, claiming credit for someone else’s efforts, and pleasing the higher management at any cost.
To make things worse it was a dreaded daily commute and long hours at work while being constantly tracked by all sorts of latest technology which was then followed by emails and messages till late night. And to add to further woos, I was able to earn a salary that just paid the bills.
It shouldn’t be hard for you to relate with this situation and to predict what was the end result……. NO FAMILY TIME FOR MY WIFE AND LITTLE ONE, NO SOCIAL LIFE.. Actually… NO LIFE AT ALL.
The dire need of earning a living to run my kitchen and family never gave me the time to reflect upon the fact that what I had become was a money earning robot with no spare time to pursue any other hobbies and interests.
However, sometimes a lightening thought would cross my mind …. does a person earn money for a living or does he live to earn money, with no spare time left for better things in life?
What was I able to do to change this?… Nothing
And Then Something Happened…
Since a couple of months, a buzz was going around that owing to a series of cost-cutting measures several employees faced the uncertainty of being laid off by the organization that I worked for.
Little did I realize it would be coming so soon and would involve me too. So yes along with many of my colleagues I was made redundant and was given a 3 months notice period for the employee unions to negotiate a redundancy package.
Everything came out of the blue and now I was, a jobless man with all the available time to kill which I never had in years amidst all the fears and insecurities of a future life.
Little did I know that this was actually a blessing in disguise for me. What seemed to be an apparent misfortune was going to give me a lifestyle that I had always longed for.
Life was throwing on me an opportunity to rebuild my own destiny and this time it was going to be exactly in the same way that I wanted, on my own terms and along with all the freedom to enjoy better things in life.
And Here it Goes…
In my quest to find a living, I was constantly trying to get my hands on any type of work that I could get and tried for all sorts of jobs and opportunities that could earn me some sort of income.
Also, I searched for several online home based opportunities, as I knew that with the advancement in technology there were numerous people conducting their home-based businesses, many of whom I had met as my clients in my previous job.
However, many of these opportunities either turned out to be scams or would not provide a consistent full-time income, enough to honor my financial commitments.
Finally, one day as the destiny had it, I stumbled upon a website called Wealthy Affiliate that sounded genuine and offered me their free membership without asking for any of my bank details.
They offered to teach a novice like me, build my own online home business from scratch which would have the potential to generate a fairly handsome amount of passive income even, while I slept or traveled.
I had nothing to lose and it was a win-win situation for me as I was not paying a dime and all I was going to lose was my time and I had plenty of it as I was out of work.
Still, I took more time and after a couple of week’s research and careful consideration, I finally took my first step. It was a calculated move as I didn’t have to invest anything at the outset and I was ready to give it all of my energy and focus.

Fast Forward To The Present …
I am today running a successful home-based business that creates a substantial passive income for me and gives me high valued freedom and now I maintain a more than healthy work-life balance.
No more tiring commutes and corporate appeasement tactics. The best part of this is that I am my own boss now, can choose my own working hours and can either work day or night, weekends or weekdays or even while traveling whenever I choose to. I have the freedom to design my own work schedule in line with other commitments like doing school runs for my little one ( which I love, by the way )
I simply enjoy what I do and it’s my passion to which I am addicted now and I no longer drag my selves to a day job every morning. Finally, I am no more a victim of the daily grind and I pat my selves at the back for having followed my intuition and for taking the first step towards the creation of my home-based business.
Over the course, I have seen numerous folks from all over the world (who once were complete newbies) succeed online through Wealthy Affiliate. (What a pity. I never knew such people existed until I became a Free Starter Member). They have successfully managed to create sustainable, robust home businesses and are now living a life of freedom.
Why I Want To Help People ?
Sharing is caring they say. On this single idea alone, we human beings have evolved through ages. The best form of a successful business model is the one in which everyone gets an equal opportunity and assistance to benefit and enhance their personal growth by constantly replicating the success of their peers.
“Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person”
On the same lines, I would like to help all those people who are looking to establish their own home business and live a life of financial freedom as there are countless people out there who are stuck in the daily grind and are not able to earn enough to live a decent life.
There are complete demographics of people- those who are unemployed (like I once was), people who are retired, people with debts, people who are disabled, unemployed students burdened by student loans who have just earned their degrees and looking to start a career, people from the middle class looking to break the monotony, people with no or minimal investment looking for a startup, people who are looking for a change in their careers, people looking to supplement their existing income and people who like to travel a lot.
With a medium like internet that I can leverage to interact with a global audience, I don’t see a reason why should I not help these people? After all, in helping others lies your own self-worth, isn’t it?
