You spend an average of 180 hours a month working on your job, which equates to spending approximately 37.5% of your life working for a company.
A company which provides you a job and financial stability for many years.
The job has given you satisfaction (at some point in time), a proper structure of your life, and releases you from your financial burdens.
In return, you have given your time, effort, talent and commitment to your job.
You are willing to give it all to the job, but the problem is, what if the job does not want you any more?
I’ve seen too many of such cases happening around the world…
Standard Chartered: Aims to cut 15,000 jobs from its 86,000 global workforce by 2018
Australia & New Zealand Banking Group: Cuts 200 jobs
Bank of America: Expects to cut another 8,000 more jobs
Even if you are working at such prestigious companies like the above, your jobs are never safe.
This is happening all around the world, and if you are oblivious to these facts, you may be crushed when it happens to you.
It is not about the job lost, it is what happens after…
Different people react differently when their jobs are taken away from them.
Some people bite the bullet and pursue other job openings, while some crumbles, and to the extent of giving up their lives.
It saddens me to see news like this:
On an analysis of a Global Mortality statistics estimates 45,000 people committed suicide due to issues surrounding unemployment annually:
This is Reality…
It may not happen to you, but you have to be prepared.
Build your Second Income to safeguard your future now!
As you grow older, your choices decreases…
When you are young, cheerful and full of life, you have many choices, career wise.
You can always find another job when you are unhappy about your current one, and you may not even know if your current career is something that you want to pursue a long run.
You have choices, you can jump from one career to another until you find what is best for you.
But, if you’ve reached my age at 30 years old, your choices start to dwindle.
If you do not have a specialized skill set at my age, it will be difficult for you to find a job that you can progress on.
In your late twenties, if you do not focus on one career path and you keep jumping from one industry to another, you will always land yourself in an entry level job.
And, when you reach the 30 mark, you will realize that it gets tougher and tougher to find a better job because you are competing with the 20 year olds, that is if you do not have a specialized skill set.
It goes downward spiral from there…
All these are known facts, but people are ignoring it…
I once told my colleague about my concerns that what if one day I am deemed redundant by my company. His reply astonishes me, “Don’t worry about it, you don’t have to plan because life is uncertain. Take life on when it happens.”, that’s his reply.
A few days later we talked about money issues, like, does he plan to save any money for his retirement and how much has he set aside for his daughter’s education. Given that I am having a son in a few months time, I would want to know how best to save for my son from the other experienced father.
But, as I expected, from his impromptu attitude, “those are future matters, I will take it one step at a time. I have other commitments now, and once I am in the clear zone, I’ll start planning”, he said.
To be honest, I am worried for him. He is 35 this year, and he still works in the same position as I am. What if one day, he did some critical mistake on his job and got fired, or the company is not having a good year and he gets laid off, what will happen to him or his family?
Well, I am not criticizing him, everyone has their own life to lead. I do not want to overly stress him on financial matters because I know too well that, it is hard for anyone to convince anybody to do anything, unless it is something that he already wants to do.
Taking Control of your Financial Future?
The term “Financial Future” might seem foreign to you, and you might think that “Taking Control of your Financial Future” is all about buying stocks and shares, investing in real estates, so on and so forth.
Well, that is somewhat true…
But, what it truly means is your knowledge of your personal finance. Robert Kyosaki once said, “It is not how much you make, it is how much you get to keep that matters”.
That sentence is very true. A person who makes $8,000 a month, but spends them all, does not know anything about personal finance. While a person who makes $3,000 and keeps $2,000 is remarkable, and how that person puts that $2,000 to work is called taking control.
As we know, it takes a lot of capital to invest in stocks, shares and real estates. My aim here is not to teach you how to invest in those financial vehicles, but to show you how you can create a second full-time income so that:
- You do not need to worry if one day you lose your job; and
- You can have extra money to take control of your financial future and your life
Where Do You Start?
There are many ways you can earn a second income, but what I am about to share with you allow you to work from the comfort of your home, and without quitting your current job.
You see, I am making an additional $3,000/mth on average without quitting my day job. The best part is, there is no limit to your 2nd income, you could even grow to $8,000 to $10,000 a month.
I am not saying this to brag, but I am just telling you that this is all possible. Many people in this small community became successful, and some even left their day job to work from home.
To be honest, my journey to find a second income wasn’t easy, you can check out my story here.
The key to success is never to give up, and your effort will be well worth it once you receive your first paycheck online.
I’ve helped many individuals over the years to find their success online, and if you are ready to find your success, join me here and let me help you too.
