Get Your Hustle On: Part V
What’s an alpha to do? When the money is tight and you can’t stand a second job?
Getting in your car early in the morning or train, downing your breakfast, and desperately trying to motivate yourself to complete work you don’t like to do is something that you’re probably desperate to eliminate in your life as soon as possible. Unless you have a career or job you love, working on something part time that you do love is a smart move.
The good news is that you can make money at home online to supplement or even replace your income. It’s all made possible through blogging. There are literally millions of blogs out there on every conceivable topic. However, you might not have considered yourself a blogger before. If you leave comments on other blogs, it could be just the beginning of a new voice dying to come out.
It’s important to get rid of the thoughts that you are not a blogger right now, because this could be the way you are able to change your life for the better. You don’t have to be technically savvy or even write like an expert. Most blogs are written in casual, user friendly language. It depends on the audience, of course, but it’s not reading like reading a newspaper or textbook.
Instead of sneaking a peek at some blogs at your 9-to-5 job, you can be the one sitting at home and writing these blogs that other people read. You’ll not only be providing great content for people, you’ll also be pulling in some great money that can literally change your life. Getting rid of the doubt that you can do this is going to be an important first step. As an alpha, you’ll already a risk taker, but some of you need that push. As long as you are able to compose and send an e-mail, you can be a blogger. For those of you concerned about employers or friends finding your blog because of privacy or content, you can always use a pen name, and generic avatar photo. No one will know it’s you.
All you need is a tutorial that will show you step-by-step how to set up a blog. It’s also important to have motivation and encouragement. The absolute best place to get this online is The Niche Blogger (which I belong to). This membership site is good for the newbie and even a professional who needs more techniques. The good thing is that there is a whole mix of experience levels so you are sure to be able to find help among the community whenever you need it. Even if you’re happy with your job, it never hurts to get some added money coming in. Blogging is fun, it’s detox, it’s therapy, it’s life.
There is no better time than now to get started, and take it seriously. There will be times when it gets frustrating like anything else, but nothing makes you feel better than earning more money, especially these days.
Besides, your PJs are calling!
