Huh? Yeah, I know. You’re probably wondering what in the world could I be talking about in the post title, right? Okay, I’ll break it down for you.
JOB = Just Over Broke
YOB = Your Own Business
Get it now? Good!
So many people work seemingly endless hours to earn a living and barely make ends meet (thanks to the rising costs of living everywhere). If we look at the big picture, that is simply helping someone else fulfill their dreams by helping their business become successful. I’m all for helping others but is it right that I spend my time and energy into making someone else successful while I struggle and even compromise my priorities? Or does it make more sense to work hard for what I want in my life, staying true to what I value, to be able to help others do the same? I feel the latter is more of a win-win scenario. Don’t you agree?
I have been working on establishing multiple streams of income since I started in the beauty industry. As a licensed cosmetologist, I earn a living off my services and tips, but I also incorporate retail product sales into helping my clients recreate their desired styles. I also started my business as an Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant to offer products suitable to my clients’ skin care and cosmetic needs. It’s also been a great networking opportunity for me to increase my customer base as well as make connections in the entrepreneurial world. There are so many Powerful Women out there! It’s great when we empower one another. 😉
Recently, because of my desire to use the internet to market my business as well as to blog and share information, I came across affiliate marketing opportunities as well as incentive websites that pay for referrals. I feel these are simple ways to learn about new products and also an easy way to make money that can be saved and used towards paying off debt or whatever your needs are.
These opportunities are free and the possibilities of growth and earnings are up to the individual putting the work in. Feel free to give it a try and see how well it works for you. You have nothing to lose and money to gain! 😉 Stop being Just Over Broke. Start Your Own Business today.
