I understand that you might not want to manage a big business, not everyone does. I understand that you might be the type of person that would like to do his job and go back home. But even if that’s the case you can still be your own boss.
Is it going to be easy? No. But ask yourself if your job is easy. Not just that, but is it covering your bills? Your boss doesn’t have the responsibility to cover your expenses that’s on you. So how do you do it?
No matter what it is you do you can do for yourself. Meaning that you don’t have to own a big business you can just own your job. By starting a small business and servicing your clients directly. And it’s much simpler to do than you think. All you have to do is structure a plan and follow it.
Let’s say you want to make $10,000 a month. Do you do that now? Let’s see how you can start doing that right now, this month. Let’s say that you charge $100 an hour for your services. That would mean that you need to get 100 clients to pay you for one hour. But not every person you talk to will become a client so let’s say you have to talk to 5 people and one of them will be interested in your service. That would mean that you would have to talk to 500 people.
I would even take it one step forward, some of those clients will be intolerable. So to make sure I can pick and chose the people I want to work with, I would double that number to 1,000. You don’t have money to advertise? That’s fine, go door to door and start talking to as many people as you can. Remember 1,000 divided by 24 days a month is just less than 42 people a day. And before you start calculating the time it would take, let me assure you that some of them will just brush you off. So they won’t take more than a few seconds of your time.
One last tip I would like to give is not to look for a yes, collect as many no’s as you can. The yes’s will eventually find you.
