It’s amazing to me how many ways someone can make a buck these days. Some kid does something crazy on camera, posts it to YouTube, gets a couple hundred thousand hits and then monetizes that video by adding advertisements to it. I hear singers on the radio all the time that really have little inclination of musical talent making big bucks because their voices are auto-tuned (digitally tuned). Inventors are getting in on the action too. Just stay up late and watch the barrage of infomercials on cable and you’ll see. Products I never knew there was a need for, such as sleeved blankets, adult onesies and kitchen knives that you can cut down a tree with!
You Do Have A Choice
So many ways of make a living, yet most people still only choose one, a job… I wonder why more people don’t choose a different route. I believe it’s because a job provides a sense of security (assuming your employer is stable) and it’s in your comfort zone. You do the same thing every day and you get into a routine that you know. I understand that. My only problem with a normal job is that I have to be there for them to send me a paycheck. Compare that to the singer who gets paid royalties every time his/her song is played somewhere, or the goofy kid on YouTube who makes money every time someone watches his video, or the entrepreneur who sits in his house and lives off the continuing sales of his new invention/product. What seems like the better route to you?
Explore Your Possibilities
I completely understand the “job” mentality. It appears everyone has a job and it seems to be a necessary “evil” in all our lives. In reality though, the only thing necessary is that we have income to support ourselves. The possible places that income can spring from are nearly infinite and a job is only one of those possibilities. So why not explore the other possibilities? One reason I feel that people don’t take the plunge and try something new, is the financial risk. Usually starting a new business or venturing into a new income territory requires a large start-up cost or supplies or even just lost time from your current job to get it up and running.
The truth is… it doesn’t take any of those things. All it takes is an hour a day and a mind open to the possibilities of adding some additional money to your life. So at this point you’re probably thinking “yeah right! How much is this going to cost me!” Probably less than you would spend on a meal for your family at Applebee’s. Heck, maybe even less than ordering a couple pizzas! The really crazy thing is that the first payment you receive will cover this cost 100%. You’ll instantly break even and everything from that point is pure profit. Have I sparked your interest even a tiny bit?
Take The Plunge
All I ask is that you take 20 minutes of your time and consider the possibilities while you watch this video.
Take Care and God Bless,
