Thoughts For Friday

5 DollarsImage via Wikipedia"End of the week at last!" How many of you think like that - and are even counting off the days of the week almost every day from Monday onwards - "Ah Wednesday - half way there...!". If this kind of thing is regularly popping into your brain, it's a pretty good sign that you're not entirely committed to your job :) - and it may be an idea to start looking out for something else to do.

If the thought of leaving your current job seems daunting, then don't forget that there are very many opportunities to start other businesses on a part-time basis. Using your computer and the internet is an excellent example of this, as you can get started for practically no cost, and spend just an hour a day, or even just a few hours at the weekend, if that's all you can manage.

When starting your part-time business, try and envisage where you want to end up with it - is it something to just add a little extra cash to your income every month? Or is it going to be job-replacing income? Then decide how long you are going to take to achieve your outcome - if it's an extra thousand dollars per month, you might give it six months, but it you're planning to leave your job, then you might aim for a couple of years. Once you have a goal in mind, you can start to break it down into smaller steps; so in the first example, you might work backwards, and think of making 500 dollars in 3 months, 300 in 2 months, and 150 by the end of the first month. Then you can think, "Well 150 per month is only 5 dollars a day - I'm sure I can do that!" With the many money-making opportunities around, it is easy enough to scale up once you have a system that starts off making you 5 dollars per day.
