Most people are worried about losing their job. But have you thought about your job losing you? Let’s turn the tables. Why don’t you fire your boss? It’s the dream of many employee. Tell your boss his/her services are no longer needed, and just walk out the door. Trust me, you can do that today. No doubts. But how do you reach the point that you actually have the option to fire your boss? Don’t just act on a whim. Create options first – so you put yourself in a position to make that leap. There are so many ways to make money online that you can quite literally drown in information overload and never get anything accomplished. Let’s change that and build a tangible action plan.
So how do you sift through the information overload, the hype and the scams on the internet? How do you find a process that works for you? Today I’ll present a few ideas to get you started. These ideas are by no means the only ways to make money online, but they’ll give you a place to start. It’s all about creating additional options and finding some starting points to generating your own money making process on the net.
1. Match your current abilities
Forget about trying to build a business with a system you are not equipped to handle. That’s not to say you can’t learn something new as you go. Just don’t bite off more than you can chew when just getting started. Don’t buy into some online “guru’s” money making scheme that requires advanced skills you don’t yet possess. No need for any of that. Start slowly with what you already have today and build your business and skills from there.
2. Take action
Although this may sound overly simplistic, no program, plan, software, or ebook you can purchase or download will help you realize your dreams of firing your boss until you take action. What are you going to do today? Take a step in the direction of your dream. You can sign up with any guru out there (and many do just that), but none of them will work for you. The key is doing something. Apply what you learn, and put forth the effort. Making your own, independent, money isn’t a get rich quick scheme. You won’t get rich overnight, but you will get there with patience and persistence.
3. Find a mentor
Find someone who knows. Someone already has accomplished what you’re trying to achieve. This is the foundational principle behind the online courses at Liberty Training Academy. My courses deliver real world advice, not just “value”. Someone has already accomplished what you’re trying to do next. No need to reinvent the wheel. I’ll personally show you how. The tuition for these experience based educational programs is well worth your future financial freedom. There is a lot of free information on the net. You can waste your time to sift through it all and dig out the nuggets of wisdom – or get access to valuable content and proven experience.
4. Don’t jump from program to program
Many people flit from one program to another or one guru to another trying to find that perfect “get rich overnight” process. Let me save you some time: the ultimate get-rich-quick scheme doesn’t exist. Sorry. Anyone who promises otherwise (there’s aplenty social media ads doing exactly that), well – take them with a bag of salt. Ask for evidence – “6 or 7 figures” means nothing. The only thing that generally comes from doing this is an empty wallet and broken dreams. Look for real results instead. Find a process and stick with it. Find a process and build your own story on it.
5. Don’t Quit
Millions of people are out there trying to create additional income streams, and most of them quit too soon because they don’t get “rich” in a few days or a few months. Building additional income streams is a business like any other business and must be treated as such. You can’t piece together a quick website and sit around waiting to get rich. The idea of “build it and they will come” is outdated at best (I don’t think it ever really existed). Building income is work. The difference is that you’re working for yourself this time around. You’re creating something for your own benefit rather than some company who will fire you if it profits their bottom line.
If you want to fire your boss this year, then it’s time to get busy. Take action. Building additional income streams will take effort and dedication on your part. As long as you’re doing something on a daily basis to build your side hustle, you are well on your way to being able to fire your boss and work for yourself. The question no longer is “if”, but “when”.
