“Time to make moves.”


the day to leave

When is the best time to leave your current day job and work full time in the career that you have always wanted? And that is a very tough decision to make because I myself am in the process of bringing in a passive income. And hopefully that passive income can be my permanent income for me. You will most likely know when the money you are making becomes more consistent. Meaning, if you are making about $500 per week and you need your $3,000 per month job, hold on to both. Now, when the money you are making starts to be more like $1,500 per week, then you can start to put yourself in position to stop working the day job.

reasons to exit

You might want to leave your current job for many different reasons. A major reason people leave a job is because they are not compensated to the degree that they would like in their lives. Everyone want to make more money, but making more requires a lot of time. And if you are working on a side income, then it is alluring to leave that day job, especially if the side money is pretty good enough to live off of. You start to contemplate is this income you’re getting from your day job worth the struggle everyday. And that’s when most people start to see an out and leave the world and venture into this other area that interest them.

hanging on just cause

Day job, making $50,000 and living just fine, but you have this other passive income of $30,000. Just think, some people would love to make an extra $10,000 per year. Here you are making an extra $30,000 per year. Your savings account could really rack and enable you to get some things done. You could pay off your home, car, student loans, or even take better vacations with this side income. Because letting go of that day job, especially if it’s not that difficult of a gig is hard. But don’t stay when you don’t have to otherwise the motivation you have in the side income drops drastically.

BE WHAT YOU MAKE YOURSELF: IN THE ERA OF SELF EMPLOYMENT A CAREER CAN COME FORM ANYWHERE

 

Person Holding White Paper and Typewriter

“Writing your own check.”


create your role

In America today, you are more than any other time able to write your own check. You can choose your own role and be your own boss. As a matter of fact, over the next few decades, more than half of working Americans will have some sort of self-employment income coming into their households. And this is necessary considering so many jobs that we have come to know and love are heading overseas to underdeveloped nations. The reason being that it’s cheaper to make the product over there because more people and the raw materials to build are cheap as well. Now what Americans have to do is come up with another income more passive to subsidize our living. But it’s not as easy a you think.

the climb to a dollar

If you want to make another income, you need to really hone in on a craft. You don’t just go outside and start making extra money. You have to work at something then go out and build from there enough to money. And the reason being is that it is very hard to consistently make money in this country. Because there is always the threat of competition and falling of the creative wagon. People want consistency you may not be able to bring to them. So go out and learn and learn then build. This is where people give up and quit because they want it now.

f u money

Ever hear of something called “fuck you money.” Most people in America will never know what this is like. Hell, in my position, I don’t have it. But F-You-Money is vey broad and ambiguous. You don’t need to be rich. The average person will be homeless in just a few weeks if they lost their job today. And this means having some sort of cushion of side money to hold you over is important. That is where F-You-Money comes into play. Doesn’t have to be much, just enough to last you until you find more work.

HOW I’M GOING TO GET IT: MAKING MONEY WHEN YOU DON’T COME FROM MONEY

Man Holds 10 U.s Dollar Banknote

“How do I get it?”


from the bottom

Coming from a poor background, how does one go about making money in life? Or better yet, how does one set up their life so they can build what they want and sustain themselves in society financially? Because when you come from a poor background, you really don’t have a clue what it means to have money or make it. You have all these ideas as to how to make money. But there aren’t people around to show you the ropes. I know for me growing up, I came from a poor family and community. People’s views of making money is either struggle with no light at the end of the tunnel, or criminality as a means of getting by.

don’t pass of a good mentor

We look around for all these resources for trying to earn in society. But we always fail to utilize the people that are the closest to us. The ones who have went off to make themselves successful and now they can provide you with proper guidance. Now you have to put in a lot work yourself just to get their attention. But it should become a fluid relationship. Don’t come to them with nothing and don’t look for them to sit down and consistently show you things. Because then again, they have their own business to tend to as well. So learn not to be a pest when reaching out for help.

read and learn, really

People really know how to pass on the best way to make money in America. And that is good old fashion learning for yourself. Maybe 40 or 50 years ago you didn’t have many resources. Now there is enough information to put yourself in the know. The problem is that outside of people’s daily jobs, they don’t really put themselves in the know with the information out here. They simply live their lives and exist. Now, I can’t say that people have boring lives, some just haven’t found the thing they are truly good at in life. And problem is, most will never find that thing. But when you do find that thing, focus on it. Read and learn as much as possible. Because to make money and sustain you much have a base of knowledge.
