Recently i have been looking at alternative ways to generate an income. In a way the 9 to 5 routine is great however i am finding it limiting and unfulfilling to say the least.
For those of you that know me this will not come as a surprise. I am in my early thirties and whilst i have worked since i was 16 and i do enjoy work but sometimes i get the feeling that there is really more to life than working in a 9 to 5 job to provide food and accommodation and all the bits i need along the way.
So i started to make a list of the options i have, it looked something like this...
Live a minimalist lifestyle working minimum hours for a job.
Rent out a room in my rented apartment to reduce my own rent.
Sell all my stuff that i don't need.
Use public transport and sell my car.
Start my own business and build a brand.
Run a Franchise of an existing business.
I found a lot of resources on the internet such as the SFM ,resources
After making my list i took some time to look at the reality of my situation of having funds to invest but not really wanting to go into business on my own. I knew i needed to get training and i also could see the benefits of having a pay check every week. That is when i came across the Free digital training given by Stuart Ross here, it is free and it gave me a look into the minds of digital millionaires.
Now i never set out with the intention of becoming a millionaire, to be honest i just need €500 a week to replace my current 9-5 job (Just Over Broke). So to work for myself and have €500 for my efforts every week i think that's a great start. The digital economy is growing and with the help of the SFM i understand better what i can do to position myself for the future.
