Escape the 9 to 5
I have always been intrigued by people breaking the normal work day cycle. Every day people are finding creative ways to create a living for themselves outside of the normal work day cycle, people are investing more in themselves finding and mastering their craft and putting it to work. Breaking out of that cycle is not easy, in my opinion building your own business and actually work for yourself is incomparable to working for a company and investing all your time and energy growing their business.
The vicious cycle
We go through this cycle of how we are expected to live our life. You go to school get an education learn a trade and find a career or job that pays your bills for the rest of your life. That is the goal. We deserve way more than that we just have to work to achieve it. There’s is nothing wrong with having a job/career that you love. Do you actually love going to that job/career everyday? If you do that is great! And good for you, unfortunately not too many people feel that way about their job.
There are many reasons why people dislike their jobs, you can love what you do and still dislike going to work for many reasons.
- Supervisors/managers. I am sure a lot of us have dealt with horrible supervisors, Study has shown a great number of workers claim that their direct supervisor/managers have a significant effect on their level of engagement and satisfaction.
- Freedom and Time. You spend year after year working for a company and not investing much time on yourself. Imagine if you could put all that time working on your own business.
- .Quality time with family and love ones. This one is very important to me and I am sure it is to a lot of people out there. Many people wish they could spend more time with their families, be able to travel across the states and and connect with that long lost cousin or auntie they have not seen in years. The regular work day cycle can definitely break connections between families.
Invest in yourself
Investing in yourself is something I believe everyone should do. Why not create something for yourself and invest in starting your own business. Why not spend time finding your craft and actually put it to work? If there is something that you love to do you can create a business out of it. There is a saying that says “if you can create a business out of your passion you will not work a day in your life.”
I had my passion and did not know where to start on creating a business out of it until I found Wealthy Affiliate. It all started there for me and it has been an amazing journey. If you’re looking to start an online business even if you are not sure on what you want to start your business in. I highly recommend Wealthy affiliate.
