Great Options for Steady Money
make a solid profit?
Want to be
your own boss? It’s possible and while people will keep telling you it’s quite
the risk – it’s no risk at all.
Let me tell
you a story, how I went from earning $1,000 a month to fetching $10,000.
Apparently living outside the US these days, I’ve managed to fetch myself a
1000% increase of my income in no time.
And the best
part is – I did it while doing several important things that will make me
employable if I ever chose to go back to employment at all.

#1 Never Give Up – Keep
When I started looking for a job, I was no-one. I had
some experience as a due diligence analyst, but the truth was that I was a
With no ambition to be in management, I loved my job.
I was a very comfortable employee – doing A LOT of
work, but never asking for promotion. Pouring cash into rent money, food and
the occasional leisure. My true passion was work, and the friends I had but met
once a week because we were all making a living and rather committed to our
Then I decided to move out and travel. Most of the
jobs I came across were OK.
They offered decent remuneration, but tied you down to
the 20-day holiday a year and office work.
Today I can afford myself months of holiday if I am smart and work well. However, just
because I can it doesn’t mean I will.
But we’re digressing here. I want to just tell you the
story of how I actually started. So, it was all very easy and very simple – I
started looking for online jobs.
I knew that coders and writers had the highest chance
of success. Admittedly, I am still learning how to code to this day, and it’s a
passion of mine. So, I chose to write for
It took me 3 months to get a steady gig – and I know
what you would say.
You call yourself a writer? You are no writer, you
create content of dubious value…
Look, there’s some merit to these arguments. I work in
a niche and as such I adjust my writing. As an individual I may never hit the
literary heights of the writers in whose company I learnt about the fruits of
But it’s not necessary, because I am making 10 times more than before and trust me
– I have a great appreciation for literature’s greatest works. Only now, I can
afford to buy myself a house and stuff my walls with these books.
#2 I Looked for a Job for
I looked and looked for a job, doing pettily paid jobs
every time a chance presented itself. I told myself – okay, this is how it
works and never questioned my employers, even in the cases they forced me to
cut the rates, because they had found someone cheaper.
Of course, I could have been a bit more assertive and it
would have worked – but now I know that not all that my employer tells me is
necessarily true, and this gives me strength.
It builds character.
It helps you grow. If somebody tells you that you
aren’t worth it, don’t trust them. Don’t be mean to them either, because you
will just confirm what they suspect.
yourself what skills YOU HAVE:
These skills can be any and varied. Writing, coding,
music, design, voice acting, storytelling, there’s just so much great stuff you
can be doing. And this is the beginning. This is year one, and with $120,000 on
the line yearly, I am planning bigger for next year.
Having bumped my rates from $70 per hour to the
whopping $80, I am yet to discover even more value for my writing. You might
wonder – who gives you so much to write and for what.
The answer is- I was lucky and there’s no mistake
$80 per hour is only possible in specialized in
specific fields, and I’ve always been a sucker for science with the nose to
create good narrative. I am also not the spending type of person, so a good
meal and the ability to be anywhere I wish in the world is enough for me.
In 2019 I intend to by myself my first home, and all
of this while I am not even 25 years old. It feels good.
I was lucky, but this doesn’t mean that anyone out
there should give up on trying to become richer and provide better comfort for
their family and loved ones.
