“Ditch digging is not scarce. It’s not hard at all to find manual labor at minimum wage, which is precisely why manual labor gets paid minimum wage.” — Seth Godin
Are you happy with how much money you’re making right now?
I’m not here to deliver some holier-than-thou sermon because I’ve been there before. You’re not making good money and your job sucks, so you complain about it to anyone that will listen (and those that even want to hear it).
It’s easy to complain about your current situation. It’s easy to blame the world for your problems. It takes real effort to actually attempt to improve your situation.
How can you actually increase your income?
Instead of complaining about your job you can attempt to increase your income and something even juicier.
How does this process usually go?
I highly recommend investing in ONE strong book on the topic. A book is an amazing tool. The author experiences something cool for an extended period of time and then writes about. To pick up this knowledge all you have to do is buy a book for $10 or so.
There’s one catch though: just buy one book. The other day a buddy texted me a picture of a stack of books that he ordered. That’s great and all, but now he’s just delaying things because his plan is to read one book at a time before he launches anything. Why wait? Information overload is dangerous. One book is enough.
What are some book suggestions?
Did I miss any books from this list?
Often the only problem is that you don’t have the best qualifications for the better job that you want. All you have to do (it’s not that easy) is go back to school and upgrade your skills. For example, Mike went back to school and earned his MBA. Now he makes more money than before. Makes sense.
While going back to school won’t always guarantee you a job, it beats doing nothing. You have a better shot at juicier gigs with a higher education.
This topic has been beaten to death here for a reason. It’s important that you try to make your own money on the side. Why let someone else control your faith? Why not take control of your own life?
Why aren’t you chasing after the juicy gigs? Wouldn’t it make more sense to try to make more money?
