For a long time now I have been trying to figure out ways to be able to break myself out of my 9 to 5 job. Really its a 7 to 7 job, but that is atypical.
Why? Well, I make good money. Enough to just have one income and we still have a pretty good life. The problem is that we are just making ends meet. Meaning, we are paying off debt, but at the end of the month there isn’t much, if anything left over to save.
In addition to the money I want to have the freedom of working for myself. Obviously, starting a business takes money. We don’t have a lot of money saved so I am left with figuring out other things to do.
What have I done so far? So far I have taken on odd jobs that require manual labor, joined a multi-level marketing organization, mentored folks that are going down my current career path, and slowly but surely advanced within my organization.
I am currently still mentoring students because that pays very well at $90/hr. This gives me and my family about an extra $1000/month. While that helps a lot, I still want more.
Many of you are thinking at this point, man, this person is just money hungry and should be happy with what they have. NO! NO! NO! This is the wrong method of thinking. I will never be 100% with what I have when I know there is so much more out there to get. Why would I settle for a Ford Mustang if I know I can go out and make enough money to buy the Lambo?
My goals far exceed the average individual. The average individual would be happy with what I’ve got right now and would work until they are 65 and can retire with whatever small amount they have saved. I don’t want to be average! I want to retire when I am in my 40s with millions in the bank, living the way that I WANT to live.
I want to be able to go to a car dealership and buy any car on the lot in cash without having to worry about it. I want the mansion with more rooms than I need and that I need a maid to clean for me. This is how I will know I am successful.
What happens when I don’t achieve this? I don’t even think about not achieving my goal. I will achieve my goal! That said, if I fall short I’m still living one hell of a life and learning a ton in the process.
I choose to not be a robot wandering through this so called “life” saving in a 401k and hoping that the stock market goes up instead of down when I retire. I would much rather invest in myself and other things that will make me money every month regardless of what the market is doing. For example, owning hundreds or even thousands of apartments would be a huge investment. However, that investment would not only pay for the loans taken out to pay for them, but it would be putting money in my pocket every. single. month. BOOM!
So, join me on this journey. I’m going to talk to you guys about a lot of different ways to make money. Mostly I’ll be talking to you about my current venture. I started this venture about 40 days ago and I’m already making an extra $1000/month with about an extra $4000/month in the pipeline. Good stuff! I’ll hold off on talking to you guys about that until next time though.
Stay frosty my friends!
