Unless you were born into a wealthy family or you’ve won the lottery, chances are you’ll have to work to earn a living. However, as I mentioned in my previous blog post, working for others is honestly not the best way. Your company/boss decides what you are worth (hourly/salary). They will decide when you’ll get a raise. They will decide when you can go on vacation. Ultimately, they will probably end up deciding when you can purchase your first home.
So you may wonder, what else can I do? Life sucks. 😦
The answer is simple. Work for yourself.
Now, you’re probably thinking, “You got to be kidding me. You want me to start a business? Do you know how much risk that is? Do you know how much you have to invest just to start something? What am I going to sell? It doesn’t even guarantee I’ll succeed. You crazy woman. Why am I even reading your blog?”
Calm down. Keep reading.
The people you see making a lot of money without spending all their time? They have money coming in even when they are not working. That’s it. That’s the secret.
Now, the question is, how do I get that residual income? How do I get money coming in when I’m not working? Well, you need people power. People have to WILLINGLY and CONSISTENTLY invest in you. What do I mean by that? Think about all the successful people you know. Ex. Steve Jobs with his Iphone. JK Rowling with Harry Potter. Justin Bieber with his Beliebers. Ryan Higa with his Youtubers. What do they all have in common?
They have a fan base. They have a group of people who are willingly and consistently spending their time/money for their products/services. When you have a strong enough fan base/support group, the money will come in regardless of rain or shine.
So how do you develop your own fan base/support group? You’ll find out in my next blog post. 😉
