I was taking a nap yesterday and woke up with this idea so I thought I would share it with you. Hope you all enjoy and don’t forget to Like, Share and Comment.
I have always desired to work for myself. I never like working for others dictating when I could live life. For me, travel was my life and passion since the age of eight when my mother took me to Disney World. We rode 1st class on Eastern Airlines. (Yes, I’m dating myself) however I still remember this trip like it was yesterday. It was the first time I had duck. (Didn’t like it to greasy, lol)
Fast forward a whole lot of years….college years that is and I must say I think I went to two pretty good schools. Wentworth Institute of Technology for Computer Engineering & Newbury College for Media Technology but never received a degree in either.
Can you guess what I wound up doing…yep getting a job but the desire to work for myself always prevailed so I always dibbled and dabbled in something with the hopes I would make it big. Well I haven’t made it big yet but that hasn’t stopped me from trying.
Today I go harder because now I have someone else that I’m responsible for. I don’t want him to have to go through some of the same struggles I have. I want him to have a good life and not have to worry about no doing something because of money.
The one thing that always baffles me are those who say they need extra money but won’t even look at what your offering or tell you it’s a scam.
Which leads me to this question: What are you so afraid of? People will make every excuse, I can’t sell, I’m not a sales person, I can’t afford it but we will go and give our money to movie stars, basketball players, fashion designers and others and never get a return on our investment. These people have made it WHY because of us, the ones buying their products. We will tell others about a good restaurant, movie or pair of sneakers but we won’t tell others about a way to make money and get a piece of the pie back in our pockets……..can you say CONFUSED!!!!
Listen, I understand that entrepreneurship is not for everyone and there are those who love their jobs and for those who fall into that category I’m truly happy for you. But for those who may hate their jobs, need more money or just want a better way out how about forgoing those Kevin Durant’s @ $115 or more and invest in you.
I will be the first to say it’s not easy but damm it, it sure is worth it. I wouldn’t change what I do for the world. There are a lot of ticking pieces but nothings better than seeing a smile on my child’s face because now I have the time and money to do the things we enjoy. Like taking him to the theater, cruise vacations, day trips to New York, being able to go to his recital during the day.
So, I challenge all those reading this that may have been on the fence about investing in themselves to give it a try and commit for 90 days. Don’t just join and do nothing and say it doesn’t work but truly commit yourself and see your world change right in front of your own eyes. I would even go as far to say don’t even look at the money so much as your willingness to do it and make some money.
You truly can make money on the internet however as a good friend and mentor reminds me that this is a game of chess not checkers. (Mr. Brian C. Jones)
To your success
