I was made redundant from a middle management position in a company that pursued me for 12 months, to try and headhunt me into their organisation. I was responsible for a team of business developers and had to deliver projects on time and to budget. After my redundancy I started to look at things differently in regards to my future financial position. What struck me was, as long as I worked for someone else, I would never be in control of my financial future, no matter how much money I earned. Therefore I started looking at business opportunities that would allow me to work from home. In my search I was introduced to the company I now work alongside and it has proven to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Working alongside this company allows me to help free people on two levels, within their finances but also within their time. So every dollar or pound I make, reflects a life that has been impacted for the positive.
I cannot see a better way to develop an income.
The biggest revelation for me was understanding the differences in the way people make money. I understood that it could not just be about hard work, or else there would be a lot of Teachers, Nurses, Factory workers etc that would be millionaires, because they work very hard. On the contrary it was all about working smart.
A good book which I highly recommend is Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, in it he breaks down the difference in mindset between the rich and the poor. In order for some one to truly change their situation around, they first have to change the way they think.
