I haven't heard an alarm clock, woken up before noon, or felt like I had to "work" for a living in over 3 years. The only exceptions are when I don’t want my lazy side to kick in and sleep 16 hours only to find myself useless to anyone :) especially myself on my day’s off! (not sure what that is anymore- days off)
It's truly possible to ditch the offline slave labor jobs to work here in online earning haven. I started using my writing skills and now have more skill sets than I can even remember at once!
I get stumped when someone asks what I do, simply because I do so much I haven’t been able to quantify it- so I just stick with “Writer, manager (I manage writers for a content provider company), and Netrepeneur!”
There are literally 1000's of ways to make money and all fun (different people like different ways). I love to write and manage writers in my "day job" (4pm-10pm but no hard times I have to be there) as well as freelance to supplement my income.
I enjoy writing on various sites, (but have just left HubPages) because not only can I write what I want with no pressure, but my writing literally pays my rent every month and bills!
Many would say I’m living the dream but I’m not quite there yet- I dream bigger always to keep me moving up.
My writing became quite popular because of the subjects I picked. The detail I offered as well as innovative looks into all things psychology seemed to be what people wanted to read. Having a captive audience helps motivation to keep writing; in fact for me it fueled it.
Since the beginning of my author career - a passive income at this point- I've been fascinated by crowd-sourcing sites, its creators, and its communities. It is possible to earn what you make right now at your menial job (12k/year or 1-2k a month or so) full time. I’m living proof.
If you write articles a certain way and consistently you can in time generate a passive income that grows as you write.
There is a "docking" period usually 6 months to a year where you earn less until you build up your skill sets in many areas, but most of that time is learning the basics of writing the right way. Luckily- EVERYTHING I learned over 4 years at Hubpages is applicable instantly here- just a new venue same concepts.
I love how my articles AND my education are all transferable to a new site. You’re not locked down to a site that doesn’t treat you fairly. I look forward to seeing this is dynamic, so far it’s pretty incredible.
I spent the past 6 years (4 on HP 2 years before that just writing journals of what I learned with a real pen and paper!) writing and learning how sites like this one, Squidoo, Hubpages, and others worked- how the sites tick in detail.
My goal was to crack the algorithm and to learn how to make the most money possible there consistently. This later lead to my ability to do it HERE consistently. Some topics I write on are:
- Adobe Photoshop (image manipulation for websites, articles, and projecting (dream board building))
- Adobe Audition (music creation and sound effects etc...)
- Camtasia (video creation, editing, tutorial building etc...)
- Website building (writing, images, videos, articles, all of the above!
- Teaching, learning consistently
... And more
I enjoy manifesting things into being, especially innovative things. I also enjoy improving upon things including inventions, sites, business models, marketing, psychology tools, and especially inventions that become products (so far I've not tried to market any of them but have created many for other companies and friends with companies).
I also love solving problems and am quite good at it- especially on computers. I'm an adept computer user although programming code I've dabbled in is a bit more complex than I'm comfortable with- but HTML I'm pretty good at.
Many have called me a jack of all trades or a MacGyver, but I’m just always learning, growing, adapting, and expanding my knowledge-base so nothing, no problem, or challenge- is out of reach. I enjoy the journey to learning more than the destination!
I have a passion for helping people and teaching people to become their best self. I have a passion to share my knowledge everything I learn, that I've EARNED through blood sweat and tears so others can (l)earn like I do. It's truly exciting to make money doing what you truly enjoy doing.
