This Epiphany Changed the way I Make a Living

Reading time: minute(s)

Several years ago I had an epiphany that changed my life. I realized that the way I was making a living wasn’t working, and that there was a better way. A way that would give me ultimate financial freedom and make it possible for me to reclaim my time, so I could use it the way I wanted to.

The best thing about this is that it is something anyone can do, even if you don’t have any experience or don’t consider yourself to be business savvy. When I realized how much this approach changed my life, I decided to help others learn to do the same, which has led me to become a business coach.

The Epiphany

The secret I learned is that with the right planning and by learning how to use leverage, I could actually work less and earn more. That’s right. I found ways that I could spend less time in my office and in front of my computer and more time with my family, while still managing to increase my income.

The Amazing Potential of Passive Income

Passive income, or income you continually earn without any added effort, has amazing potential to help you change your life. It could mean the difference between working 40 and 60-hour workweeks just to make ends meet and freedom of time and money.

I fell into passive income when I decided that I wanted to make a change. I wanted more time to spend with my family, without sacrificing the income we needed. I wanted to find a way to leverage my work and get more out of it.

One of the biggest ways I have done this is through real estate investments. As I have invested in properties I continue to earn an income, without much additional effort on my part. This frees up a lot of my time, giving me more time for my own business and family. This experience has been amazing, and it’s one that has made it possible for me to devote more of my time to my family and hobbies, while actually making more money.

How you can Take Action

As I mentioned, this epiphany opened my eyes to a way of working that can bring results for anyone. Before I started working this way, I didn’t have much experience in running a business or investing in opportunities. But, I knew that if I worked hard and dedicated time and effort into opportunities now, I could live the freedom lifestyle. And it has worked.

You can do the same, using passive income, network marketing or a home-based business to earn more while working less.

Identify your “Why”

First, ask yourself “why do I want to make this life change?” Your “why” defines what motivates you to start a business, to invest in a passive income opportunity and to reclaim control of your time and money.

Do your Homework with Opportunities

Before you start earning passive income, begin a career as a network marketer or launch your own business, do your due diligence. Learn all you can about the opportunity and what it will take to succeed. Find out if it is for you and how it can help you achieve your “why.”

Create a Strategic Business Plan

Finally, you need a strategy for success. While this epiphany will lead to a more fulfilling lifestyle, it doesn’t come without some planning. Take the time to create a business plan that outlines how you will launch your business, how you will leverage different opportunities and how you will manage your finances for optimal results.

I offer one-on-one coaching sessions to help business leaders create strategic plans that allow them to take advantage of the idea that you can work less and earn more by breaking free from the traditional idea of earning a living.

Since I’ve learned how effective passive income can be, I’ve dedicated my time to helping others achieve the lifestyle I have and love every day.
