If you were to ask me “what prompted you to find a job working from home online?” I would share with you first the chain of events that preceded that lead to this decision!
The date was January 2nd, 2012 I received a phone call from my employer to inform me of my employment being terminated. This was bad news for me as I had just gotten married and had plans to build a life with my new bride. However it was also great news because it gave me an out to be free from the stresses of my 9-5. I vowed that day to take control of my well being and provide my own security. Work on something that I was in control of, that I enjoyed doing to provide my monetary needs. No longer would I worry about meeting anyone else quota while they have the reigns over my staying or going. I didn’t have to wake up in the morning, and stay later with no overtime pay if my work wasn’t 100% complete. I would have my schedule, my goals, my work, and most importantly on my time!
That’s me right there punching the clock from 8:30 -5 everyday for 6 years trying to get ahead in my career. To no avail my career has seem to have lost its luster! It became a job! Have you ever worked in a place where you wanted to just quit?
Some describe these type of jobs as a rat race! So what do I do now? That’s the obvious question to ask right now, so instead I’m just going to pay close attention to what I won’t do again! That’s count on a corporation or person to occupy my time to make a living it’s time to work for me and make my dreams and visions a reality!
This is where I made the decision to take control of my wealth!
Google became my go to for information on how to begin working from home. It lead me to a few blogging programs that had much information but no guidance willing to break things down, or if you did get a “coach” that person will become tough to reach? Does this behavior sound familiar? Have you dealt with programs leading you on just to take your money and claim to have the secrets to get you “rich in no time”? This leads to frustration and anger because there is no serious follow through just a program that takes a life’s saving to get rolling. Some just take from your life’s savings! That’s a topic for another blog so I will address that later.
It’s quite possible that you know exactly what you want to do but you just don’t know how, and you don’t trust programs to even give it a try. Where to start? What will it cost? How will it make money? and finally Is it worth it? One thing we know for sure, and that’s first a decision must be made. Am I willing to at least try to gain an extra income? Or……
Realizing I needed a website of some sort to work from home I set out to look for website builders. I knew very little so nothing made sense when I reached out to web designers, but a large price tag. Now I’m looking for deals because i really NEED this website. NO LUCK! Either the prices were too much or unprofessional work took place. I decided to try on my own only to produce ZERO results!
Hey I was determined to make this happen there was no way I was going back to a boss. What would you do if your living situation gets worse and you’re just trying to make it? I know I’m not alone in with this situation. Someone right now wants to fire their boss and earn a living with more freedom to do what they love. What’s stopping us?
After countless tries at programs to gain knowledge five years had gone by and to the date of my termination, Wealthy Affiliate came across my eyes. I didn’t pay close attention to the valuable information right away by signing up and not reading the benefits of the premium services so I missed out on my free trial! Don’t let this happen to you!
I will probably never live down so get used to hearing that story again! Immediately I signed on premium when I realized the value of this program. This is the first time I experienced such positivity and honest help. A community that reminds me of a neighborhood where everyone knows each other, and looks out for one another. That alone is what makes Wealthy affiliate a great source for the serious entrepreneur. Time to get rolling.
The only next step is to go after your dreams and visions of what YOU want! It’s not just about money with me I want to spend more time with my family. Creating memories and enjoying each other’s company. The main lesson learned early was to complete the small tasks, celebrate small wins, and stay committed to consistency! When it gets rough I always remember a quote from an unknown author.
“It’s a slow process but quitting won’t speed it up!”
This was my action that I chose to take control of my situation! My wealth is in my time and effort. For my time I cannot get it back so it is valuable and my effort is all I have to give.
Will you take action or keep thinking about taking action, or you could just be satisfied. That’s fine too! I am not here to judge, just here to help the best way that have helped me.
This is meant to be shared with anyone out there Who wants to better their future financially by taking a passion they love, and finding an audience to cater to.
