We are all constantly in search for ways to make our lives better. We always want a better house, a better car, better food on the table – literally just the best of everything. This is doubly true when we are already well on our way to build a big family. It’s as if we’d do everything just to give them the life that they truly deserve. However, in order to do this, one obvious thing is needed: Money.
Sad to say, our current labor system doesn’t really offer us much of an advantage in the financial department. At most, it can give us enough to pay off rent, the most essential of bills (e.g. water, electricity, phone and internet bills at least), and money to put food on the table. If you really think about it, the amount you earn as a salaryman, as a day worker, is not even enough to put kids through school. It’s not even enough to pay off much needed family occasions and activities. In other words, it is not enough to finance the textbook definition of a “good life.” Check this out: https://www.elitedaily.com/life/job-doesnt-feel-things-quit/1187333.
This is also why we are constantly searching – searching for bigger, better, and more effective ways to earn money and give ourselves, our futures, a chance.
So to set things straight: You shouldn’t count on your day job to save you from the current financial mess you’re in right now. To achieve true financial freedom, you first need to think outside the box. The same thinking that got you to where you are now will not get you anywhere else in the future; you’ve got to be more creative. Luckily, with the combined help of modern-day information and technology, we now have ways to overcome our financial plateau and actually start earning for keeps.
Earning Money In Modern Times
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Modern times require modern solutions. The only way you’re going to escape from the financial hell you’ve dug yourself into is to think innovatively; think in the now and present. In case you’re not aware, more and more people are earning millions per year. We have, as they say, entered the age of hyper wealth.
These days, a mere million will not earn you the title of “Class-A Rich.” It would now require billions for you to even come close to calling yourself that. However, it’s not like you’re trying to aim that far right now, aren’t you? For now, it would be more feasible to set your sights on something that is reasonable but stable. Financial freedom, after all, does not mean big money at the drop of a hat.
Take lotto winners, for example.
Whether you like it or not, some people just get hella lucky and wind up with tens of millions at their disposal – all because of a lucky win. But if you’ve been following stories that involve big shot lotto winners, you’ll find that earning BIG money does not equal financial freedom. Why? Most of these on-the-spot millionaires wind up in even worst financial situations than they’ve had before. This is because of inappropriate spending and wrongful investments. In the end, they waste away the fortune they’ve earned on nothing but incredibly mortifying mortgages and cars that they end up selling for less than half the initial purchase price.
You see, financial freedom doesn’t have to be BIG money. Rather, it should be stable money – a consistent flow of income that doesn’t fail you (read more). By knowing that you have something to harvest by the end of each day or the end of each week, and that you’d have even more the week after that and the week after that, that’s financial freedom. In other words, it’s money that never runs out.
But how do you make this possible? Two words: Passive Income.
What Are Common Passive Income Strategies?
One of the most common and modern ways to earn passively – or to earn without having to actively put in effort in the activity during the time of earning – is Affiliate Marketing. You know what they say, if you don’t have the talent or the resources to create and sell your own product, sell theirs. This is so mainstream in the business world these days that we even have guides for it. If you are really earnest on finding a way to earn stable income passively, then this is probably the opportunity you’re looking for. In fact, Affiliate Marketing That Works can guide you through the process. But before that, read on below:
Affiliate Marketing is the newest online income strategy wherein you earn commissions from plugging partner brands and products into your content. The “affiliate” which will eventually be you should you wish to enter this industry, should be someone with ample social influence online or at least has some association to a platform or website that has ample social influence online. Businesses, or affiliate partners, will then offer you a contract to advertise their brand (sort of like a commercial) and you get paid whenever a person in your audience decides to make a purchase from your partner brand.
To become an affiliate, you don’t really need to be a Hollywood star or even look like one. You just need to work hard enough to grow your influence online. Maybe start a YouTube Channel or even your own website. Once you’ve grown your influence to a certain extent and managed to round up a consistent audience or viewer base (e.g. subscribers for YouTube and visitors for websites), this is the time you can propose affiliate deals with established brands and businesses. Or, in many cases, they are the ones to come to you – especially if your content is strongly associable to their target markets.
Anyway, if we want to get anywhere in this world, we really have to start thinking more creatively. We have to broaden our perspectives when it comes to solving financial matters. If we don’t act now, when? If we don’t start earning for ourselves, who will? Trust me; your financial freedom starts with you. Stop being plagued with indecision and just start acting today. There are many online resources willing to help you get started!
