Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Online Business - Wake the Fun Up

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Online Business

People Don't Have to Achieve 100 Percent of One Level Before Moving to the Next

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory about motivation and human needs.  Abraham Maslow proposed this theory in 1943 and it continues to hold up today.

He believed the needs lower down the pyramid must be satisfied before individuals can move up.  It's now understood, these needs can be partially satisfied for a person to advance to the next level.

Five Stages of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs:

1.  Physiological 

These are biological requirements for human survival, e.g. air, food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth, sex, sleep.  If these needs aren't met, the human body can't function optimally. Physiological needs are the most important.  

2.  Safety  

Protection from elements such as security, order, law, stability.  Most importantly, freedom from fear.

3.  Love and Belonging   

The third level of human needs is social. This involves feelings of belonging.  The need for interpersonal relationships motivates behaviour.

4.  Esteem  

Maslow classified esteem into two categories:

a)  Esteem for oneself (dignity, achievement, mastery, independence) 

b)  Desire for reputation or respect from others (e.g., status, prestige)

5.  Self-actualization  

 It's about self-fulfillment and personal growth and realizing personal potential.  A desire “to become everything a person is capable of becoming”

Where Does Six Figure Mentors Come in?

Most people become involved with Launch You to satisfy their basic physiological and safety needs.  Our motivation to get started was financial, no apologies.

We Soon Learned There Was So Much More

Before we knew it though, there was a shift.  We realized being a part of the community at Launch You provided many more benefits. As a member of the community, we had a sense of belonging.  We were surrounded by like-minded people, all at different stages of their journey.  Everyone helps each other along the way.

Launch You and community have helped us learn skills we never thought possible.  We no longer ask our kids for technology advice. Now, we have skills our kids don’t have.  


We have learned new skills by doing.  Teaching others what we know is rewarding.  Launch You provides the vehicle to help others.
