Quit My JOB - Need to pay Debt :(

29 replies
I quit my offline Job on Monday since it was hardly getting me anything worthwhile ..I couldn't even pay the rents every month let alone the debts!

I have like 3k Debt that I'd like to pay by the end of July,although its not the deadline I'd like to take off the pressure .

Now 3k wont seem like much for most of you'll but I'm still a student and using student loans every year...and I support myself for everything I do not have parents to manage stuffs in my life anymore...


----

I'm on my road I wish to get this done by the end of the month,I'll sell affiliate products and see how far I go,I'll keep this thread updated.

Its a do or die for me,follow me on the journey

    Great idea... quitting a job if you're in debt without having another way to replace the income....Maybe you should have stuck it out for a while to avoid the unnecessary stress?

  • Joshua, . . . I am drawn to your stoic attitude. When you don't have the support of close family or friends in this world it is that much tougher on the person. So, I applaud your bright defiant attitude toward your circumstances.

    You know, I wish you the very very very best of good will, . . . and yes, good LUCK!

      This is wrong on so many levels. Where to start? Okay...

      First of all, anyone who tells him that he should have waited is just using common sense and wisdom.

      Why would anyone allow fear into their own life when someone else makes a move with out letting their brain power kick in long enough to think a little into the future rather than in the here and now, the just today?

      He didn't just break it, he has been broke and now is about to become more broke.

      Keep what going? Being impulsive? Making wrong choices? Being broke?

      Uh-uh, no, not good.

      To the OP ~ Just a heads up, but follow me threads are not allowed here. Sorry.

        Hmmmm, although I agree with your premise, the boy has already QUIT! I say, throw some positive energy his way and hope for the best. He made $30 in three days!!! Kudos for him!!! I only wonder where he lives. I doubt the kid is living in America if he only as $3k in debt with college loans.

        It's "sink or swim"! And you're telling him to stop paddling!:confused:

      Dwave has the right idea. A common obstacle that keeps most people from achieving their goals and dreams is "fear". You have overcome the most difficult challenge already.

      Maintaining this attitude is also crucial. In the world of Internet Marketing, "life can change on a dime". The next big windfall can be only seconds away! Learn from your mistakes, but never look back. Always keep looking forward, expecting good things to happen.

      The Law of Attraction that works within the Universe is based on "like attracts like". Positive thoughts and expectations of success will be rewarded based on your own personal definition of "success".

      Fear or "expectations of lack" will also be rewarded as well, with more of the same.....more "lack"!!! So, keep those negative thoughts far from your mind at all times!

    Few words:

    Everybody will tell you that you're crazy, don't let them put you down!
    Prove them wrong!
    The ONLY way for anybody to be really happy is to break free and take massive action to get where he wants to be!

    Don't look back. There's nothing there. If there were you'd still be there.
    Look forward, that's where you want to be!

    Cheers,

    Veo

        That's an ambitious goal, good luck!

        Though as someone who is struggling to make it online in a far away foreign country alone with no job or possible job, and no safety nets of support either, not even loans, I know how difficult it can be.

        There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Being fearless and taking risks comes at a price of ups and downs and bearing loses and failures as nothing is usually an instant success without repeated failures first. You have to have a strong resolve and never quit, which is easier when that's not an option.

        I'd suggest you look after yourself first. If the loan doesn't have that deadline, save your money for yourself and to invest to get ahead faster and make payments if you can. I know you want the debt gone, though you are your main priority now, taking care of immediate expenses first, and all extra towards debt.

        This.

        There's a thin line between genious and stupidity, and it seems as though you just landed on the latter side of the fence.

        I hate to be harsh about it, but sometimes we need a solid kick in the skull in order to get right. What are your plans? Sit around and worry for the next few months? That'll kill your self esteem faster than anything else.

    My advice as I have been in a similar position as you. Network! STAT! You never know who is close to you who can help you in IM. I always JV, I always bring up the word as its a possibility. If you want to be free of employment and earn big, JV is the way to go.

    I now earn more than what I did with my last job 5 years ago. Fast forward 6 months and with time and good investments, will be a wise decision to leave.

    For every person who ends up successful by saying "screw it" to the world, making brash decisions and doing there own thing with no plans.... there are 100 who bomb.

    There is always the one. I hope you are that one.

    Well I'm guessing it took some courage to quit your job considering your circumstances.

    If you can carry that courage into your Internet Marketing I'm sure it will make you more successful.

    3k by the end of July definitely seems like a stretch (however I don't know your experience etc.) but don't give up. Eventually (even if you can have to work some jobs) you can be a successful Internet Marketer making much more than 3k.

    Hi Joshua, I guess my question to you would be... What skills do you have? If you've got the skills... making 3k by the end of July may not be any problem at all.

    With the right skills... you could contact struggling business owner and say I'll do this & that for you.. free. We'll try it for two weeks. See if it works for you. If it does... you pay me this amount to manage it for you on a monthly basis. If it doesn't, we part ways. Repeat that for 20 clients and you are off and running.

    Hope this helps.

    You can now do anything you want. Find a job you're passionate about, something you're good at, you like doing. It's not going to be easy but you'll get to pay your debts and maybe even save money if you work hard. One step at a time.

      That's awesome Joshua P. : ) As they say: “Every journey starts with a single step.” Good to know you're thinking about IM long-term.

      I hope that you make enough in the next month to at least pay off some of your debt.

    Although my first thoughts are to question why you quit your job, while you have debt, and no back up money in line BEFORE you quit..I'll say this. Everybody makes their decisions on their own. And I just want to add this.

    You know why people fail?

    Because they don't ACTUALLY put in the work.

    They’re not 100% willing to take the risk to go out on their own. And, they’re not willing to spend money in order to make money back. Although I don't agree with how you went about your decision, I certain hope you make it and wish you the best.
