To become self-reliant can be difficult. On a nearly daily basis, I get ads from people offering a free webinar or training on how to create a business and become rich that promises to give you live the life I’ve always wanted.I’ve gone to some and I’ve learned new things from them. I often want to purchase their courses, but a lot of times I don’t have the money. The reason for that is for the same reason I’m also very different than people advertising those programs. Family.
The Not So Real Dream For MeI don’t mean to say that none of these people offering these “amazing training” don’t have a family. I know for a fact that some of them do, but most of them seem to live the bachelor life. I mean many of them live the “digital nomad life” traveling and doing the work online and visiting beautiful places. Obviously, these peeps have never traveled with kids. I mean just traveling four hours to my in-law’s house is sometimes a headache. Trying to live in Airbnb’s with toddlers would be a nightmare. So that millennial dream of living aboard just isn’t in the cards for me, but the idea of having a job that is mostly automated and brings in passive income so that I can focus on my family and the projects that excite me is for something I want to have.
The Game PlanI’ve read up on enough blogs, watched enough webinars, and learned enough about “the online hustle.” That I think I’m set to embark on the journey of creating a meaningful audience, a stable financial future, and a job/business I love. First thing is first. I need a product. In the past year, I’ve come to realize that so many small businesses could truly generate more business by simply knowing the basics of how to create a video for social. I am a strong believer that everyone should know how to make a good video. I don’t think everyone should want to make videos, but they should know how. We’ve all become consumers of personal content Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, and Snapchat have seen to that. I’m a firm believer
