ESCAPE PLAN FROM A 9 TO 5 CRAPPY JOB

23 replies
Step 1
The first step of this escape plan is to find out a method you like, and you have to stick with this method, it is important to be extremely focused, I mean do not open a single email about another method related thing, don't read any single article about anything that has anything to do with the method you choose.

For example, if the method you choose is to be a product creator, you need to be aiming only to learn about creating product, see what other marketers are doing, analyze their funnel, see what's selling in the marketplace, figure out what tools you will need to use, learn how to do video and stuff like that...

Forget about anything else, if somebody is making 5 figures with Amazon give a ****... Commit to yourself that you will manage to do accomplish the goal you set up for yourself which is to be a fulltime product vendor, even if that only is going to generate 1k/2k monthly.


Step 2
Next step is to set a job equal income goal, this is going to be your first goal to reach, that helps you to be realistic, forget about the six-figure and the ridiculous amount of money for now, lest stay realistic, the first goal is to make what you're currently making right now in your actual job.

For instance, if you're making 1k per month in your job, you have to figure out how you can get that 1k working from home... to make it easier, lets split that 1k into 30 days... Which is going to be an average of $33.00 per day... Then think about how you're going to get those $33.00. As a product vendor maybe you can think about selling 5 $7.00 Ebook as an average per day...

Better? Now you can think about how you're going to manage to sell those 5 ebooks every single day... And let me tell you something... IS EASY!! You just have to follow the formula. What formula? TRAFFIC AND CONVERSIONS. There are no secrets! The traffic is everywhere nowadays you just have to open your eyes! Just think about how you ended up on others people list... Then just copy the process and you'll have a traffic method to attract customer to buy your product... Then just keep improving your conversion rate, believe me, after you do that, you will be selling more than 35 $7 ebooks per day!

Step 3
Now I want you to set up a saving goal. Which is going to be your initial budget... Figure out how you can save $1000.00 just for your traffic expensive... Ask yourself, how long will it take you to get there? and just do it. if you want to do it within 5 months this is how you do it... Sacrify $200 monthly and that's it... Quit beer quit going out, quit party, your goal is more important.

I hope you find value in this article.

Thanks

Fernelys Pina.

    Kinda scary how many people think they can build a business on free traffic.

    I mean ok, they can, it's just gonna take them a few years to do it.

    Good post.

      Good post.



      You can't seriously lump every single person into one time frame for anything. Everyone is unique, has their own skills, experiences, connections, etc...

      Free traffic is irrelevant for making money.

      Did anyone pay you to be on Warrior Forum (doubtful)? You've probably bought something at least once. I see you're a War Room member, that's not free.

      My point is free traffic can be just as profitable as payed traffic.

        But is it likely to be, unless you're willing to put in months of work?

        I've build businesses both ways, I know which one I prefer. Whatever works for you, works for you.

      Hi Michael,

      This is a really, really good point.

      It took me a minute to get things going with the free traffic bit. Like, a few years. Unless you pay money, you will be paying in time, energy, practice, service, creating, promoting other entrepreneurs in your niche, and doing this stuff daily until you really really get clear enough to allow in money.

      This takes time. Not time spent doing nothing, but time spent doing uncomfortable, fun, helpful and freeing things to make your business go, to develop your online skills, to create value, to promote others, to render useful service and to love the ride.

        I completely agree man.

        Back in 2004 I started a site to campaign for our freedom.

        And I threw myself into it big time. It was very difficult, totally awesome, and the good kind of scary. Occasionally the bad kind too.

        Working on the site all day, every day, for years and travelling up and down the country meeting likeminded people and living it - virtually broke, but it was never about that.

        Fast forward a few years and my site gets a little TV show, and I realise how far its come.

        Then I figure, hey I'll share what I've learned with others because entrepreneurship really is the path to freedom.

        And I'm back at square one, starting all over again with a new blog.

        And you know what man, it's still not about the money. It's still about helping to improve people's lives.

    When there is focus and determination there is nothing you can achieve. Be that as it may if you want to build a successful online business very quickly then paid traffic is the way forward cause free traffic will take long like Michael rightfully said.

    I suppose first it's understanding the thinking process in order to escape the 9 to 5! Follow other people who are succeeding in your area and copy what they do.

    Warriors I need advice please,

    I have a 9-5 corporate job that I hate, I don't NEED the job to survive as I'm 21 and still live with my folks. I'm debt free and have 10k in savings, and enough to cover my bills.

    Would you quit to pursue an online business full time?

    "Knowing what is happening in other fields" is a gateway drug for Shiny Object Syndrome for many newbie entrepreneurs.

    If you are going to expose yourself to outside information, it needs to be properly filtered.

    Sticking with the OP's product creator example, maybe you read about someone killing it as an affiliate. You need to look at that informations from the POV of "how can I get multiple affiliates killing it by selling MY products."

    Would you quit to pursue an online business full time?
    I wouldn't hand in your notice just yet.

    First off, going to a job where you spend your commute telling yourself "I hate this...I don't want to do this...I hate this..." can be very motivating. (Ask me how I know.)

    Absent that motivation, it's easy to slip into a pattern of endless research, learning, jumping from scheme to scheme (scheme as in 'way to do things'). Again, ask how I know.

    Second, you will have better odds of success if you have something up and running that you can expand. Starting something, getting it going, and then evaluating how well it suits you is best done before you quit, run through your savings and find yourself in a crappy job that you hate you built for yourself.

    Beyond that, you're young and you have your living situation and your obligations handled. If you want to take the plunge once you know what's under the water's surface, go for it.

      Thanks for the advice. You're right, my main source of motivation is my disdain for the 9-5 lifestyle.

      Since you told me to ask... So how DO you know?

    No, I would stay and start a part-time online business. When your online earnings consistently outpace your salary, then start thinking about quitting.

    Yup, I wouldn't think seriously about quitting until you've made as much money as your salary with IM three months in a row.

    The adaptation to a home-based business life is not easy. You're alone. You are completely responsible for everything under the sun, from getting customers to fulfillment. Nobody's there to make sure you're motivated or doing anything productive. It's easy to get lost.

    organic free traffic is better in the long run, but that takes years, one of my old websites that i treated well, with no ads or backlinking etc only posting new content and linking to other articles within that site, then after about a year of doing that...each new post i created went on the first or second page of google for that keyword.....paid traffic is good for affiliate marketing and new software and tools that come out but the long haul is better for an actual business dedicated to content of a specific niche.

    Thanks for sharing, however I honestly recommend not a single person to leave their 9 to 5 until they are fully secure in their online business they are pursuing because many people fail online and that is a known fact.

    So if you are doing well online than by all means go ahead leave that crappy job lol and there is satisfaction in being your own boss.

    The basics of anything in life, if you want to be successful, is to work hard and stick to something you know works. When most people get started trying to build an online business they get stuck jumping from one thing to the other and never sticking with something until it works.
