Most of the time what they mean is, “How did you quit your job and still afford to pay your bills while you did this?”
So many people don’t go after their dreams because of the vicious “I can’t because” cycle.
I can’t quit my job because I have a house payment and bills and a family to support. And I can’t earn more money at my job now so I can’t save the money I need to be able to quit. And if I can’t earn more money, there’s no way I can break out of this job and do something else. So if I can’t do something else, I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing because my family needs me and I have bills to pay. So I can’t quit my job.
With thoughts like that, how are they ever going to do something better with their life? How are they ever going to achieve their dreams? Sadly, most people do not. They just stay where they are and do what they think they have to do. They go to work day after day, and nothing ever changes.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! It wasn’t for me.
So here are some ideas about how you can afford – financially and otherwise – to do something like this. I’m not promising you easy. I’m promising you real – but also very possible!
One really good thing about starting a MLM / Network Marketing / Online Marketing home business is the low start-up costs. You can start almost any type of home business for well under $1,000 and in most cases even lower. And most home businesses give you the ability to earn so much more than you do in your corporate job.
I have another post about how to find the money to start your business. You can find that here.
So, once you find the money, get started right away! Now is the time to make your dreams and goals happen. Every day you wait will hold you back that much further.
A home business will allow you to make money around your day job, sometimes in a little as two hours per day. In fact, although you might think that you need more time to work your business, part time has it’s own benefits.
The sooner you get started in your home business, the sooner you will start making money. Even a couple hundred dollars per month can be life changing. $1,000/month doesn’t sound like much and won’t get anyone excited, right? But an extra $1,000/month ON TOP OF your regular earnings can change your life! When you’re making this kind of money, now you can see a bright future ahead of you.
This is what can get your mortgage paid off. This extra money can pay off your bills and help you become debt free. Once you no longer have any bills, you don’t need near as much money to sustain your lifestyle and you’re well on your way to financial freedom.
Is it going to be easy? No, probably not. The steps are not hard and if you do the activities, you’ll reach your dreams. There’s no question about that.
But along the way, you’re going to need to make daily decisions to do the action steps. Sure it’s only two hours per day, but that means every day. You can’t decide that because there’s a football game on, you won’t do it today. Or because you have company you’ll skip tonight. In many cases you’ll be able to work around those types of things by planning ahead and scheduling your business time around it. But you’ll need to give top priority to the time that you committed to your business.
It won’t happen overnight! Most people overestimate what they can accomplish in one year, but underestimate what they can accomplish in 5 years. If you do the steps and take consistent action, in 5 years you won’t recognize your life! But the key is, you still have to be here in 5 years.
But isn’t that 5 years worth the freedom of the rest of your life! I think so!
