You people have got to be kidding me, or either I am the luckiest person that has ever NOT won the lottery.
I haven't punched a clock or answered to anyone since 2005. Matter of fact, I was broke three years ago after spending all my money moving TO
Florida. Granted, I had a place to live then and a car to drive - but no money left to pay the next month's rent or put gas in the car for the
coming month. All I had was a talent in talking to people and fixing computers. I work out of a converted garage, in a 60 year old house - with
absolutely no signs at all indicating what I do - yet my ingenuity (or blind luck) has turned that into making at least a grand every 2 to 3 days
I got tired of being broke. I got tired of not being able to do what I wanted, go where I wanted - I got tired of living in broken down crapholes and
I did something about it. I don't think I'm exceedingly smart. I'm not special. I'm not better than anyone else out there by any means. I
didn't get any loans, no credit was given to me.
You might not be able to fix computers, but can you cut grass? Living in FL gives the advantage of a plethora of seniors who will pay to have their
grass cut. They talk, a lot, amongst themselves - do a good job & the word would spread. I would do what I had to do to get out of a situation like
that....well, I already did. I got tired of scraping by on a whopping $6.25 an hour. For some reason it just wasn't cutting it.
Very rarely will you ever get financially comfortable in working for someone else. In working for someone else, making YOU money isn't the point of
No one is controlling YOUR life but YOU, and YOUR only obstacles are your excuses.
Weakness, laziness, apathy, and procrastination have no place on the path to financial self-improvement - except as things that you've left behind.
