When do you finally said “I have had enough, it is time for a change in my life”.
I ask myself that question everyday that I have to get up at 4:30 to get ready for another day of who knows how many hours. After 43 years of working just to provide my family with a living and provide for their needs, I would love to be able to say I have had enough and I want to do something that I enjoy, something that I want to do and something that I have to do just to say that I have a good paying job. Nonetheless it is not a satisfying job, just a job with a good pay check (well at least it was last week).
In the current economy the small business that I currently work for has found itself in a real desperate position. After being in business since 1991, it is barely able to make the payroll from week to week and can not pay any of the other bills and obligations. In an effort to try to earn some kind of living I start a small business of my own a few years ago, only to find out that being in business is not all that it is cracked up to be and that I am be taxed at 40% of net income. Someone is getting a lot of money from my efforts and it is not me.
So as I look to the future I think that it is time to re-evaluate my current circumstances. And that has led me to examine the possibility of becoming a Professional Blogger and Internet Marketer. I look at it this way, if I am going to have to give the government 40% of my net income, then I need to find a way to earn a Passive Income that I don’t have to spend 80 hours a week to earn.
I know that the statistics say that I will fail, because 90 % or more of all bloggers fail to earn an income from their blogs. But that doesn’t mean that I have to fail and will fail.
I believe that if I can maintain focus, and perform due diligence, that there is a chance I will succeed. Now to just find a starting point, develop a plan and stick too it. I have already purchased more training programs than I can shake a stick at, and I will be sharing my views of those programs as well as listing some of the Professional Blogger that I like to follow.
This blog is mainly for my personal use to track my progress, and a place for me to keep notes on what I have learned, the good, the bad and the ugly. I don’t really expect for anyone to find this blog or to even follow what I am doing.
Ok enough for now. I am going to starting giving some thought as to which course, of the several that I purchased, or did I forget to mention all of the free ones that I have now come across (man the money I could have saved if I would have found them first) that I am going to start with.
And I was looking at my Kindle just this morning and noticed that I have over 200 books on it. Can you guess what 90 % of them deal with ? If you guess affiliate marketing, blogging, internet marketing, making money online then you would be right. And now guess how many I have read completely ? That’s right NONE ! I have started a lot of them and never finished any of them.
It is my plan to read at least one per week and provide a review on this blog. Man how many years has it been since I have had to write a book report, more than I want to count, and if I did it might give away my age.
