Why should we struggle with a modest income?

Struggling on a modest income is no joke. Yes, you will have to buy those shoes for your teenage son or daughter. Yes we have to purchase the latest gizmo or gadget that our kids are into, just because all the other parents are buying it. We could say no to that school trip because it costs too much or it means we have to do without something. It’s ok to be frugule and try and keep on top of our budget but our fixed incomes just don’t hold enough capacity for all the expenses. At some time in our lives, we struggle with personal debts and mortgages repayments. It all boils down to two things. Either cut down on our expenses, do without that holiday or new kitchen, or make more income.

Now the problem isn’t always going to work itself. Many people are happy in their jobs and content at putting in their best every single day. You might be feeling the same. But the income you get is from trading your precious time and effort for money. I didn’t want to be a workaholic maniac because there is more to life. If we actually worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without a break and spent nothing- and I mean no outgoings (like a robot, without the need for sleep or any leisure), then you might start to notice that you are beginning to save more. You and I know, that is not the case and that saving money can be a real struggle. All you need is one unexpected expense and boom-it’s all gone. 

Thankfully there is a better way that kills two birds with one stone. Firstly you can start generating an online income without limits. This means that you could make more profits than you get income from a standard job. Secondly you don’t have to work your fingers to the bone, till you get burnt out. That way you can actually enjoy life and do the things you love, rather than be stuck working for someone else. It all relies on your prospective. Less than two years ago I thought, ‘If I could automate my work and then get on with my day and get commissions as a result of my actions, I’d do it!’ 

Well, one idea was doing over-time. Sorry, nope, just didn’t fancy it. Then I went through a phase where I looked for other potential jobs with a higher income. Again that is extra responsibility that comes with an additional burden and stress.

I also knew so many people who do a second job in the weekend, just to make ends meet. But that in effect takes you away from your family and your rest time. I just didn’t see any sense in that. Why should we have to do that at all? 

Then I came across a community of entrepreneurs that offered to give me the tools and training to start and build my own successful profitable businesses. The beauty of it was that the businesses would be online. Now I simply keep tabs on them from my phone. You still have to work! It is not as easy as it sounds and indeed a new skill that is of value needs proper training. Twenty five years ago, I had spent five years at University, first to become a Biochemistry graduate and two years training up to become a Science Teacher. It wasn’t just handed to me on a plate. I had to work hard at it. I had to build up my skills and knowledge base. So yes, I was prepared to work at this too. I wanted to learn how to run online businesses properly, from proper legit experts. Now I could have done some random online course but I wanted to learn from the best.

You do just have to commit to it and stick at it. Take the rough with the smooth. But common sense tells me that if I’m learning from the best then some of it will rub off and I will begin to see a real change in my lifestyle. So I started doing the training and it really helped me to stop struggling. Getting the time freedom back in my life and building a future for financial freedom is now the ultimate aim. I’m on track. I train up for an hour or two a night and check my existing set ups. That’s it. I’m done. Somedays I do a bit or a bit less but that is part of the time freedom. Other people in the community have given up their day jobs and just run their online businesses, and why not? They just love it so much that they’ve advanced their skills to a great extent. It gives you back the choice. You can get up when you want, take the kids to school if you’d rather or take a couple of hours off.

If you think you could do with a change of lifestyle then lets get you on-board.
