This week I’ve talked to 5 job seeker clubs and one business owner meetup. Tomorrow in Danville I do my last presentation and then I fly home for a 40 hour rest before I go to present a bunch in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
One thing that came up in a presentation was the idea of creating different revenue streams that can either replace your job income or complement it, to add stability to your income.
Two books I recommended in the presentation:
The Four Hour Workweek. I haven’t read the book but I read his blog and loved, loved LOVED this post: Engineering a “Muse”: Case Studies of Successful Cash-Flow Businesses. Sometimes we think “starting a business” means something too big and complex, but it doesn’t! Read that post…
Crush It! This is GaryVee’s first-of-ten books and, to be honest, I thought it was pretty weak. But in the end he shares business ideas that he thinks can be awesome and amazing, and I got energized just reading this thoughts on those ideas. You can go to a bookstore and browse through the book just to find those ideas (I think they are in the appendix?). Awesome ideas.
Who knows what YOUR idea is… but I want you to think about it.
Can you make $1 doing it? Can you make $100? If you can make $100 you might be able to make $500? If you can do that, maybe you can get to $2k? If you can get to that, how can you get it to $10k?
Sure, it takes work… but it can be exciting and energizing… and it’s a great idea for your own career management!
