Quitting your job without another job lined up will more than likely not end very well.
However, you have already proven to me that you want more out of life, so I say good job so far.
We will discuss in this article what your next move should be so you can get what you REALLY want out of life as quickly as possible without anyone stopping you, and I will gladly help you get there.
Lets get right into it so you know what the heck I’m talking about!

Hats off to you…
Why do I take my hat off to you?
Over 70% of people hate their job but they still stay in it for the rest of their lives.
It’s much easier for them to keep chugging along, day after day, year after year. They are in their comfort zone and that’s what helps them get by.
However, YOU have taken the first step.
You know you don’t want to be at your job anymore, for whatever reason that may be and I say “well done” for trying to find out your next move.
Wait a Little Longer
Your job is currently your primary source of income and probably your only source.
Without your job you aren’t making money.
Without money you struggle everyday to do even the simplest tasks.
You may or may not agree with me, but money makes the world go round and the reason why people are living paycheck-to-paycheck, constantly stressing out over money and always struggling to get by.
Second Income Source
You have one source of income right now.
When that comes to a halt you will have none.
The key is to get another source up and running so it contributes to your overall monthly income.
When you’re making money from your second source you can either scale it up to its maximum potential (make more from it) or create another source.
Here’s how it works:
Lets say you have 4 streams of income making you money each month.
If one dies down, you still have 3 sources of income.
That is the power of not putting all your eggs into one basket and why you need to create at least one source before you axe your day job.
Income Streams Proven to Work
Okay, so there is a large amount of things you can try out, especially with the help of the internet.
#5) Buying and Selling Online
Craigslist and Facebook, and other numerous buying and selling websites make this task extremely simple.
Buy an item for cheap and sell it for more.
You can use your phone while you’re at work (during your breaks of course) to secure deals.
Continue buying and selling items after work for maximum profits!
Why this is good: It is instant money and you can make a lot of profit after some practice.
#4) Wheeling and Dealing
This is one I highly recommend because you can make thousands of dollars in profit every month.
However, I have never tried it because I am such a bad seller (lol). But I have watched my friends do it for YEARS and they continue to astound me with their ways.
Why this is good: You can make much more money than buying and selling smaller items.
#3) Writing E-Books and Selling them
Amazon is the biggest online store – has been for many years and continues to grow year after year.
It just makes sense to jump on the wagon and build a second source of income.
You can create many e-books, as much as you want actually. The only downside – the money isn’t instant like the other methods mentioned.
Why this is good: It is completely passive income when your e-book is uploaded, and doesn’t require any selling since Amazon does it all for you.
Fiverr has also been around for many years, and it’s actually a good second income source for many people selling their services on it.
People will literally pay you $5 to create a 5-minute logo for them. It’s so easy to make money with Fiverr and why I HAD to include it.
Why this is good: The $5 bills soon start to ramp up. You will be making a few hundred dollars every month in no time.
#1) Create a Blog (easier than you think)
There’s a very good reason why I have this sitting at #1.
People have been creating blogs since the beginning of the internet.
Blogs are a huge passive income source. When you’ve built your blog you will make passive income for years to come.
Why this is literally the best: You don’t need to write your own e-books and there’s no selling, but there is definitely thousands of dollars to be made every month and you don’t even need your own product to start with!
The True Power of Blogging
Listen, blogging is highly underrated.
Most people start a blog for a hobby, for their personal business or their company.
Blogging is arguably the BEST way to make money on the internet.
It is completely passive, meaning you earn money and gain traffic on autopilot for years to come.
Some people have blogs getting traffic from the search engines but they haven’t even monetized it yet!
I have multiple blogs monetized with affiliate links. Affiliate marketing is when you don’t need your own product, you just sell other peoples and earn commissions.
So when you put the two together (blogging and affiliate marketing), you have a VERY powerful tool that you can leverage off of to make as much money as you want.
How the heck do you make us much money as you want?
You create articles on your blog.
You gain authority with time and consistency, and by providing useful information to your audience.
The majority of your money will be made from review articles.
Review articles are searched by people interested in a specific product.
For example; Someone may search up [product] review on Google. He likes your content, clicks a link and makes a purchase. You make a commission.
Now the more articles you have up the more money you make.
If you have 20 articles you can expect to earn a little money here and there, but if you create 100+ articles you will have a consistent flow of traffic coming from the search engines, and of course traffic equals money when you’ve monetized your blog properly.
Leaving your job without a backup plan isn’t the best idea.
It might sound like the best option at the time but later down the line you will suffer the consequences.
Like I said, when you can get a steady flow of income from other sources you WILL eventually be able to quit your job while being financially stable.
Having no job will not be a problem to you anymore, which is why you need to start today.
I have sites all over the internet in many different niches making me money as I type this article.
I want you to live life the way you want to, not what society thinks you should!
So when you’re ready to begin your journey I’ll be ready to greet you and show you the ropes on the other side.
