This is the first online post on my Money Scooter Blog. A good place to start if you’re new here.
Supporting yourself financially
To live a decent life you need to have some form and source of regular income. Making money is probably the second most important thing after breathing – because how else are you going to support yourself?
My life seemed to have revolved around my 9-5 jobs that I have done over the past few years – and I personally feel that its just sucking the life out of me!
Year 2023 is knocking on the door and there are more than imagined ways of making money and level up financially.
Working in a 9-5 meant being around bureaucracy, the political correctness, spending time commuting to work, not being able to take time off or take it easy and what not. It’s all added up and turned me into a sad adult I think. Don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful for all my 9-5s that I did do. However, that just doesnt do it for me anymore.
Making a living this way has not been satisfying for me at all. Sure, it’s been good money but considering how much time of the day is spent at work, it is a significant amount. I certainly do not want to keep on wasting my hours feeling unhappy in the monotony and all those other things that can come with a 9-5 job. I don’t think I need to go into too much detail of it – I am sure many of you can relate with me.
Most of you must, as that’s why you’re here?! Am I right?
So, what’s up
A quick disclaimer: I am not new to the internet or to making an earning on the internet.
The first ever dollar that I earned was in fact earned online. This is way back in 2008. If you’re interested in how I made my first dollar, check it out here.
However, along the way many different things happened. I moved countries, picked up 9-5 jobs and stopped doing what I loved the most – building my online revenue streams.
This blog is an attempt to restart what I stopped!
But why blog you ask
The first and foremost reason why I wanted to start a blog was for accountability. Over the years, working 9-5 jobs, I might have become a little ‘lazy’. So once this content is out then I know there is no slacking around. I have to make sure that I put out content at regular intervals – failing which would mean failing at my goal of making money online again.
It may sound foolish – but this is the best I have got so far to stop me from going off the path.
Secondly, if I can help even at least one person in their journey to making money online, I will be absolutely delighted.
There are many ways to make online money but where to start? A lot of people struggle with starting business – I am a good example of it as I am struggling to start one, even though I have done it in the past for 4 consecutive years. I was making 10 times of what my peers at that time made from their real 9-5 jobs.
Why did I quit then? You can read my story here – quitting my online business.
And what now
For now, I am going to welcome you to my blog website. I will also start my YouTube channel but the date is unknown.
I have some ideas that I will be putting to action at the same time to try and make money online.
The basic categorisation of these ideas are –
- Offer a service online based on the skill set that I do have
- Acquire new skills that can help create multiple income streams
- Tackle a problem and provide a solution. There are some things that I am struggling to deal with myself and I know that there are people out there who are in the same boat as me. So id like to find solution to the problem and offer people a solution.
As you can see from the above, there isn’t just ONE thing that I will be doing. I want to try a few different things and see what works the best. Some ideas will be easier to implement than others.
It’s about finding a right balance to try and not overexert and stretch myself too thin but at the same time maximising on all the opportunities that there may be.
I am giving myself six months to see how my experiments go and if I can make money online in the year 2023 or not.
If I make it, then you all will be able to see how I did it. If I don’t make it, then you all will know what NOT to do!
