In June 2015 I started listening to podcasts about creating passive income to live off of instead of working a 9 to 5 job. I’m excited to say that as of June 28th, 2017 I have met this goal and will be a full time entrepreneur!!!
How Will You Afford This?
When I told my boss I was leaving her first question was “did you find another job”. I explained how I had been growing this business for 2 years now. However, she still didn’t understand and think’s I’ll be “crawling back” in a few months.
Something important to note though is that this is a “goal” not a requirement. Not only that but it’s a number that would mean both me and my wife can leave our jobs.
For now it will just be me leaving my job meaning I need to make significantly less then my goal.
What Does This Mean For I Am The Future Me
Some exciting things are coming for this site. I have already started work on what will happen June 29th for the site. Well really it will be July 1st, on that day I will start a 31 day blog post challenge.
Everyday for the month of July there will be a blog post. Some will be about me, more background information. Some will be ways you can make, save, or give away money.
If there are any topics that you would like to hear about please comment, or email me.
Another thing I’m going to focus on is creating my own products, starting with a Kindle book on Amazon FBA. This will be a small book that teaches you how to make money with FBA in a short amount of time rather then a complete guide.
Couldn’t You Keep Working Part Time On Your Side Hustles?
Many people, my boss included, have asked “why not just keep working both since you’ve been doing it this long.” The answer is simple, time. Yes I can keep doing both, I can work 32 to 40 hours a week at a regular job. Then, work an additional 20 to 30 hours on my side hustles like Amazon FBA, freelancing, rideshare, etc. But, there are far more important things than money.
This move also brings me close to becoming location independent. It would be entirely so, however as mentioned earlier my wife will continue to work her job.
I don’t know what the future will bring, but I do know that this move is right. I know that I will have a lot of work to do, and that I may end up working more than I do now to start with.
I welcome the challenge, I look forward to it. No more thinking that “someday” I will work for myself and control my own time. No I am the future me right now, not tomorrow.
