I heard this morning from somebody who just read my free eBook Fire-Up Your Cash Flow Over A Donut And Coffee.
I’m studying a few money-making ideas right now. Maybe I’ll end up just pursuing one. Maybe I’ll follow up on two or three. But my family and a couple of friends say I’m unfocused and should spend all my time job-hunting. What do you think?
I don’t know much about Marty’s particular situation, but offhand, here’s what I think:
Always respect your family and friends. But don’t worry about what they say. Follow the beat of your own drum. Follow your gut.
More often than not, your gut is right and your friends are wrong.
The input of other people often brings only disharmony to the music you’re trying to make. If you have a new business idea, don’t waste time trying to make everybody understand. They won’t. And the “help” you’ll get will likely come in the form of negative feedback.
Please don’t think I’m advising you to do something rash. If you have a day job, keep it until your new business is making a fair amount of money. If you don’t have a job, maybe finding one will help you “get by” while you’re looking at new business ideas. All this involves some tricky time management, but with a little discipline, you can squeeze everything in.
I’m interested in hearing about your successes, your ideas, and your challenges on the road to personal freedom. Voluntary joblessness CAN be your way of life! Please share.
And if you have any questions you’d like to fire off my way, please feel free. I’ll answer them as best I can.
