Are you tired of the 9-5 grind? Be Your Own Boss!


Not everyone is living the dream, in fact most people feel stuck in either a dead-end job or having no choice but to work just to make ends meet. It doesn’t have to be this way. If there was another choice wouldn’t you want to about it? Can you be your own boss and pay the bills? I’d like to spend a little time and show you another option that you really should consider.

A cost too high?

Statistic show that 64% of Moms with kids under 6 are working. 70% of them full time! Now I’m not oblivious to the fact that some women are choosing this path and are quite happy balancing a career and family life. Neither am I knocking that or putting them down. Many families are thriving with Mom at work and things are working out just fine.

I am speaking more to the Moms who feel like there really isn’t a choice. This can be single parents or families that need both parents working to make ends meet. I myself have been a working full time Mom. For me it wasn’t choice but necessity. I don’t mind working, I just want it to be on my terms and for me having freedom of time for my kids and being able to be home with them is my desire.

For me missing out on watching my 3 year old run around and play or homeschooling my 8 year old are not things I’m willing to give up. That’s a cost too high.

Not enough compensation!

So you have to work. I understand. The average household income across North America sits somewhere around the $56,000 range. For the average single household the income is around $31,000. Depending on where you live that can be enough, but in most cities the expenses seem to outweigh the income. You’re working, have to be away from your kids, daycare/after school care is cutting into the income, there just isn’t enough compensation for the costs your paying. Not just financially.  In 2016 alone 1.9 million parents had to quit, reduce their hours or change their job due to child care issues.  This doesn’t sound like fun.  When I was working full time I couldn’t quite juggle work and home life….they both were suffering and I was getting physically and emotionally exhausted.


Be Your Own BOSS!Another way

I’m writing this article to show you that there is another way. There are other possibilities that with time can produce and even replace a full time income. Freedom to be at home or pretty much anywhere there is internet. Freedom to pursue your dreams, hobbies and interests. Finances to be able to do the things you want.  Be your own Boss!

Your future is in your own hands!

There is a way to become your own boss, to explore your passions and interests, to spend more time with those that mean most to you.  To have the benefit of being able to work from anywhere and the resources available to build an excellent online business.  You can build and market your own brand!

Online business is waiting.

Wealthy Affiliate is the #1 ranked Affiliate program for good reason. The founders/owners, Kyle & Carson, teach you step by step how to create a successful business. How successful you are is up to you. What they offer through their program is unmatched other places and very affordable compared to the competition.  Affiliate Marketing is not a new thing, but it is still a fast growing industry and one where you can easily succeed.  Millions are coming online everyday (4 Billion internet users worldwide to be exact) looking for information on various topics.  They want to know how to be successful, how to manage their money, what shoes to buy, how to scuba dive and on and on it goes.

There are things that you know that are useful to others.  You have a unique persepective and your own links to information that can be monetized and help others at the same time.  The reason I’m talking about Wealthy Affiliate is because this program is designed for you to be able to turn your passions into profits.  Newbies start eveyday knowing nothing about ‘Marketing’ or ‘online business’ and they come and learn and turn into Entrepreneurs.

Online community


An Awesome Community worth Mentioning

I’ve never encountered an Online Community quite like this.  People talking about their challenges, their successes.  Everyday there are new articles about problem solving, new goals reached, new goals set, questions about how to reach the goals.  Almost every post is encouraging and it feels like a motivational convention.  People from all ages, backgrounds and walks of life all with a similar interest.  To turn their life into something more.  To have the financial freedom to life their life the way they want.  I can’t think there is a person on earth who wouldn’t want that.  Some will never take the step.  The status quo can lul our senses into just surviving and that ok is good enough.

One saying I’ve always like is “the good can become the enemy of the best meaning that if we think something is good enough we stop pushing forward for more.  Maybe we don’t want to be selfish or maybe the road has seemed too long.  Who wants to just survive though?  I believe you, like me, have goals and dreams.  Some may have gotten lost or put on the backburner along the way.  It happens to most of us.  Our plans haven’t turn out the way we thought they would.

Today could be the day to unpack those left behind dreams and start dreaming again.

This community within Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to get inspiriation, with people from over 90 different countries who are ready and willing to help, give tips, and answer questions 24/7. I myself have reached out to the community for help and have received assistance almost immediately. The results also came along quickly. All of the program is easy to use and workable for people at every level of learning.  I enjoy reading their daily encouragement to keep going and digging for gold!
