After 1 year of working from home doing things on my own time and slowly building my website development and internet marketing business, I’ve decided to take a side step and return to the 9-5.
I hear you say WHY would he do that?
Let me start by saying that with 3 kids, the pressure to keep money flowing in is high, and working from home dealing with small business is not easy and has a lot of hurdles to jump through.
I still work for myself and love it that way, but had to start to move away from dealing with small business. Small business means small jobs which means lots more of them just to bring in a decent income. Chasing the occassional client for money is also not my favourite past time.
Instead I’ve turned my attention to taking on bigger corporate clients with bigger projects that last longer, and they have no problem paying me for the work that I do for them.
While I’m still trading my time for money I want to be earning as much as possible. The big trade off to this is that bigger corporate clients require me to work at their office, not mine.
My internet marketing business is still slowly bubbling along, but it’s taking a bit of a back seat, with me only spending about 1 hour per day on it including weekends. Not enough at all, but it’s better than doing nothing on it.
I anticipate that I’ll only be doing this 9-5 contracting until end of next year. This gives me my buffer of income my life requires while my internet marketing business is growing. There I’ve just publically set myself a goal. This goal has now set me in motion to carry it out.
I will be using this blog as I have been to record my journey, so that I can stay focused and look back in years to come at my achievements.
