Why employment is not for me.

I have been toying with the idea of going to work. There are a few types of jobs I would like to do, but some are very low paid until you get all the training and start earning great commissions and others require years and years at Uni. Neither of those things suit me, yet there are no other jobs that I would like to do either.

I have been thinking and thinking about what I should do and then it hit me. The reason I cannot think of a job I should do is because employment is not for me. I am not saying I do not want to earn money, because I do. I do not want to go work for someone else, when I know I could earn much more on my own.

If I was working I would be getting paid less than I feel I am worth. I would be exhausted and I would not be able to build alternative income streams as easily as I can now. I would not have as much time to devote to building them up.

I am not earning huge amounts of money through my various projects yet, but that is because they are all in the baby stage. There is a lot I need to do to build them up, but once I have, I will be earning an income and then some.

There is so much information out there about how to go about building various income streams and I feel like I am only at the tip of the iceberg. I have so much to learn, but I am trying to spend as much time as I can learning everything I can.

Not everyone is cut out for this sort of thing. Many people like the “stability” of being employed and getting paid each week. Personally I find more joy in doing it for myself and not relying on my boss for work. I know that no one can fire me and the only reason things won’t work is if I stuff up.

I have recently come across some great things to help build my blog and also other ideas for passive income. I have set myself some goals for where I would like my blog to be in the next month, 2 months and so on. I know where I want to be 3 months from now and will be working damn hard to achieve that.

Do you know where you want to be? What are you doing to ensure that happens?
