Have you ever thought about quitting your day-job for something you love? I can’t say I’m quite there yet, but what if this next year of blogging proves to be as profitable as I think it will be? I’m starting a couple of business partnerships and already have a few extra blogs in the works as well. This could really be a huge year! So, if it goes well, do you think it would be wise to eliminate the full-time job? Or, should I continue to climb my way up that corporate ladder? Before you answer, let me give you the details.
I currently work for an incredible company. They’ve been around for over 100 years and it seems that they’re still going strong. I don’t mind my job at all, and it actually seems like there’s plenty of room to move up in the company.
I recently saw a chart regarding the impact of retirement on our company and I was speechless. Within the next 10 years, 30% of the workforce will be retiring. Do you realize how huge this is for my potential within the company. With so many people leaving, climbing that ladder should not be overly difficult. I assume there will be higher-level openings all over the place!
For this reason, I’m actually considering going back to school for my Masters Degree. With this, I should be incredibly marketable and I may even get into an executive position before the age of 35. This could be a great move for me financially – both for the salary and for the benefits!
My Blogging Business
While I have not been able to share my most recent online ventures with you yet, I expect them to be huge! Within the next year or two, I think it’s very possible that I’ll be making $10k per month. If I was able to do this, and was having a fun time doing it, I might consider going after some more online ventures on a full-time basis.
The only problem is, how long is this blogging thing going to last? I mean, technology is changing so quickly that surely something will replace the blogging business in the future, right? It’s most likely not something that I can depend on in the distant future.
So those are my main positives and concerns about these two options. I would love to hear your thoughts! What would you do?
My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
