He’s 33 and doesn’t know what to do.
What Jason does know is that he hates all the crappy part-time jobs he takes to pay his rent.
He’s “had a little college” but “has no real skills and isn’t good at anything.” So starting his own business, he says, seems out of reach.
Here’s what I told him:
If you’re in your thirties and finding enough part-time work to survive, even if uncomfortably, then you’ve got skills.
You’re a fighter. You’ve got moxie. You’ve got perseverance.
You’ve got survival skills, fer crissakes, and that alone will take you a very long way.
Now, as for not being good at anything…
Everybody’s good at something. In fact, everybody’s good at something that can make them money.
As I wrote in Chapter 8 of Fire-Up Your Cash Flow Over a Donut and Coffee, “Open your mind, and you’ll be stunned at the amount of untapped skills and knowledge you do have.”
I offer a very quick list-building exercise in that chapter that’ll give birth to more money-making ideas than you’ll ever find time for.
So if you feel “stuck” and share the beliefs of my friend, take a few minutes right now to read (or re-read) Chapter 8 of Fire-Up. If you don’t have your copy yet, you can download a free copy from the sidebar at your right.
Then drop me a line and lemme know how things’re working out for you.
