In our world, our lives and careers are deeply intertwined. If your job is dull, unfulfilling, or stagnant, it can start to feel as though you have no direction, purpose, or passion. When a business venture doesn’t work out, it can seem like the whole world is crashing down. And, when you want to enter the work force but doubt your business skills and experience, it’s easy to feel like there’s no room for your dreams. But, I also know how the right career—and the right business—can change everything for the better.
Let me tell you, when I started out, I had $462 in my checking account and had just moved back in with my mom at the age of 39. Then, I worked my way into a 6-figure job – great, right? Except I was spending all my time working and traveling. I was missing time with my beautiful fiancée and the mother who had given me a place to restart. As a business analyst, I was spending hours upon hours researching and assessing business models—hundreds per year—analyzing them for everything from ease of entry to scalability to work-life balance. But, I didn’t have any healthy work-life balance of my own!
I started looking for online businesses that would allow me to take back my time. I couldn’t find anything that offered the earning potential I wanted. And, the options that looked most promising required me to take an 8-week course (likely followed by another 8-week course). When I thought about my fiancée, my loved ones, and all of the years I’d spent in other ventures, I wasn’t willing to give up anymore time.
So, instead of waiting for the right opportunity, I decided to create opportunity on my own. What I did was take the best of the models I found and compile those techniques into a single home-based business model that is immune to many of the pitfalls hopeful entrepreneurs face. I work 20 hours a week while earning 5-6 figures a month. I’m able to take care of my family, spend time with my fiancé, and travel the world.
