Most would answer that at no time, because a 60K good salary is equal 60k, Right!, well not exactly. In fact, when you work a 9 to 5 it’s surprising how little you get to keep.
When I was making 60k a year, I was jubilant. I thought I had arrived into the middle class. What I found out however was that my celebration was over rated by about 24k per year.Try this, whatever your stated salary is per week or month or by-weekly, divide that amount accordingly and subtract your various deductions. Now check your take home pay and you’ll see what I mean.
It does not matter your income level, the situation is the same. Now when you tack on the other incidental costs associated with a job such as your car,gas and maintenance, your spendable money is further diminished before you even pay the first bill, buy any groceries, pay your gas and or electric bill, and most of all the mortgage.
The thing that concerns most people about their job is will they continue to have it. When it comes to employment there are no guarantees. That forces most people to keep their heads down and keep working and not complain.
That does not mean that you don’t think about your situation every day. So what can you do? You’re locked in but glad to be working. I guess that’s bitter sweet to the extreme.
Now contrast that to an entrepreneur, one who opts for the ability to not be constrained by many of the mandates imposed by a job such as:
- When to report to work
- When to eat lunch
- How long you can take for lunch
- When to take a break and how long
- when you can take off from work
- When you can go on vacation (if you can afford it)
These are just some restrictions that come to mind, however I’m sure you can come up with more that are unique to your job. But let’s get to the main issue with not only your job, but just about every job you can think of.
How Much Can You Make
By their very nature jobs come with a ceiling on earnings. That means if you need to make more money, you can change jobs (LOL), or you can get a second job to supplement your income. Changing jobs today especially jobs with good pay and benefits can be difficult.
That second job can take away from time with your family and burn up your energy and the reward will only produce about half of what you’re paid.
So what’s a person to do?
Consider a different type of income.
- A type of income that puts no ceiling on what you can earn.
- A type of income that can come from multiple places.
- A type of income that you can’t get fired from.
- A type of income where you have complete control of your time.
I’m referring of course to online marketing. This type of income earning has been around since the early 2000s and has ballooned to unprecedented heights in recent years. Every year has brought impressive growth. For you that means opportunity.
The Internet right now is said to be 6% of the economy.
A report dated Feb 10, 2017 – “The National Retail Federation (NRF) declared that it expects total retail sales to grow 3.7-4.2% in 2017″
A quote from Digital Commerce 360 – “83% of U.S. online adults made a purchase from Amazon in 2016, and 55% used Amazon as a research resource before making a purchase,” Forrester senior forecast analyst Susan Wu writes. “Forrester estimates that one-third of (online) retail spending is made through the online pure player, suggesting that many shoppers use Amazon for web research before purchasing elsewhere.”
US Census Bureau News Reports – The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce announced today that the estimate of U.S. retail e-commerce sales for the third quarter of 2017, adjusted for seasonal variation, but not for price changes, was $115.3 billion, an increase of 3.6 percent (±0.7%) from the second quarter of 2017.
It’s important to understand that there are hundreds of thousands of retailers most of which have affiliate marketing programs. This aids the merchants because they all want affiliate marketers steering business to their sites. Also for them this type of structure is more cost efficient than traditional advertising.
Conclusion – Marketing, affiliate marketing specifically offers a rich and ever growing opportunity for those desiring to cut the cord to their present job and begin to truly enjoy the fruits of your labor.
What About Training – There is excellent training available in an environment designed by affiliate marketers for affiliate marketers with an entire community of students and teachers all dedicated to assist you in your journey. I use the word journey on purpose because you are going somewhere you’ve never been. The important point is you won’t be going alone.
