Becoming financially free or independent is all about building passive income streams that cover all your bills & expenses so that you no longer have to trade in your hours for dollars (work at a 9 to 5 job).
It’s 2018 & it’s my strong belief that everyone should be building some sort of passive income stream online.
There are so many opportunities to make money online, they’ll look back on these times and say it was similar to the gold rush of 1855.
In 2014, I joined this coaching program that taught me the skill of generating leads for small businesses using the internet.
6 months later, I quit my job and I’ve been self-employed ever since.
In 2018, I’m making $50,000 per month with this lead generation skill and I get to do whatever I want, whenever I want.
Now my goal is to become a legit millionaire by age 30, that’s $100K per month baby.
I created this blog to document my entrepreneurial journey & also share with others why I believe lead generation is the best online business you can start.
What Does Being Financially Free Look Like?
They say money can’t buy happiness.
I don’t know about you but ever since I started making $10,000 per month my life has become so awesome.
Can you imagine $10K per month of completely passive income, meaning you don’t have to work at all for that money & it just continues to come?
Its true freedom.
I just wish someone told me sooner how this was possible.
How truly great it is to have passive income streams so you don’t have to work for someone else.
Can you picture a life where…
- you no longer have to go to a job you don’t like?
- being able to buy nicer things for yourself & others (I bought a new car & moved to a nice Loft in downtown Detroit) I live in Michigan… & downtown Detroit is NOT ghetto ya’ll
- Ability to continue to increase your monthly income everyday
- work anywhere you want… at home, your favorite coffee shop, on the beach, by the pool, in hotel rooms as you travel the world
- buy new, nicer clothes whenever I feel like it
- go to restaurants & get whatever I want on the menu without batting an eye (appetizers & all)
- travel the world comfortably & still be able to make money on vacation! (my fav)
- being able to support your family financially
The biggest blessing of them all though
Working on my business every day became my hobby & passion because it’s so rewarding when what you do makes such a big impact in other people’s lives and everyday you work, your monthly income is going up up UP.
What It Means To Have Financial Confidence
Having financial confidence has changed me in every way.
Its this knowing that no matter what happens, even if everything was taken from you, you’re confident that you can build up your finances again from scratch.
It all comes down to having high-income skills.
A high-income skill is any skill that allows you to make at least $10,000 per month.
Developing your skill is paramount to getting rich & staying rich.
Because a skill is something you keep for the rest of your life, no one can take that away from you.
You can always count on you to make yourself money. Its life changing.
This is an amazing video by Dan Lok where he explains why investing in developing your skill is the crucial first step to becoming financially successful.
Dan breaks it down, he’s amazing teacher of entrepreneurship and business.
I love what Dan says here.
Your income is a direct reflection of how much value you’re able to bring to the marketplace.
Why Lead Generation is the Best Online Business
By building lead generation sites that I own and it generates leads with free traffic which means my lead gen sites make me money month after month on auto-pilot.
This business model is very similar to Uber & Airbnb.
The biggest transportation company and the biggest hospitality company doesn’t own any of their own vehicles or rooms.
They simply connect customers with a service provider.
Well, my lead gen sites do the same thing. I deliver the lead or customer and my clients do all the dirty work.
I take a cut out of the action.
Business owners love me because they’re now getting more jobs than they’ve ever had before so they have no issues paying me every month.
Here’s me showing you one of my lead gen sites.
the trade skill of roofers, plumbers, driveway pavers, deck builders, fence builders, maid service, etc
are always needed as long as there’s a civilization
These business owners are usually too busy dealing with the day to day operation of their businesses to really take the time to master online marketing.
Even though they all know online marketing is important.
The internet is not going anywhere anytime soon and small businesses will always be around for a long time so this business is pretty future proof.
In fact, the trend is that more and more businesses are waking up to the fact that online marketing is crucial for their business and traditional marketing like billboards, TV, newspaper, etc is on its way out.
I graduated from Michigan State University in 2012.
Got a job in Novi, MI for a Japanese auto parts company. I was doing sales & project management.
My starting salary was $35K per year.
After taxes, it came out to be around $2100 per month.
In the beginning I was just thankful to have a job.
After 2 years, my boss called me into the office and congratulated me on getting an annual raise which was the standard 5%.
After taxes it only came out to be $60 per month.
That really was the straw the broke the camel’s back.
That basically lit the fire in my ass.
I knew I had to figure something out so I turned to the internet & began researching.
I’ve dabbled with blogging here & there.
I heard about bloggers living the laptop lifestyle of making money online while they traveled the world.
It sounded like a pipe dream at the time.
But fortunately, my research led to finding the local lead generation business model and I jumped on it.
Honestly, it made the most sense out of any other ways to make money online.
& my hunches were right.
I went through the training, & I started building & ranking lead gen sites part time while I still worked 40 hour weeks.
Few hours per day after I got out of work, and then hustled on the weekends.
Within 3-4 month I had built $1500 passive income stream.
And few month after that, I was now making more money online than my day job so I put in my 2 weeks notice.
That was one of the most exciting / exhilarating day of my life.
Now I live life on my own terms, making multiple 6 figures from the internet and all of this possible because I invested in this coaching program.
You can check me out on Instagram here, just living the dream as a bonified entrepreneur with a real high-income skill of lead generation.
