In my parents day, and even today, its not uncommon to have all your income be earned from one source. That one source is usually your job, or aka your “day job.”
Multiple Streams of Income
Today, having a day job may mean you need 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet. This is more than about making ends meet. Now you need multiple streams of income.
When controlling your own time, its recommended to have more a few different ways to make money. Online, that may mean having a blog and selling things online. Or you could blog and sell things as an affiliate or your own products.
Maybe you’re a writer or graphic artist that creates your own work and supports other businesses. Don’t forget this is a good way to use programming skills. Even still, maybe you have an employer that lets you work online from home.
How Will You Make Extra Money
If you’re not commuting and working at someone else’s business, you do choose to earn money in more than one way. If trends change, you have other ways to make money. You’re not suddenly broke because your current job disappears. It all comes down to having multiple streams of income.
As for me, I sell items on eBay, run this blog, and have two stores on Shopify. Because I control my schedule, I find that I can do all of these things and still only work about 30 hours a week.
Getting To The Point
My goal is to encourage you to start something. Whether you decide to sell online, blog, teach, write or work for someone else remotely, you need to start. As long as you have an reliable internet connection, you can make a living online.’ I will be sharing with you where I get my training online, what resources I use, and how I do marketing.
I also will be giving you ideas on how to save money along the way. This is not about not doing any work. Even making money online takes work, planning and sometimes spending a little money in order to make money. I want you to be successful and not be at the mercy of a job you hate that keeps a roof over your head.
Please follow along as I develop this blog as a full time income. I’ll be providing the steps I’m taking, where I’m learning to do what I’m doing, and hopefully give you some ideas on what to do to generate a living to have a great life.
