What do you consider to be someone who’s “made it”? Does that phrase bring up images of young fit people in business suits smiling as they rush to the next meeting holding their cell phone to their ear and a Starbucks treat in the other hand?
While this is often a popular stereotype seen on TV and the media, for those of us that actually make it there it can come with a lot of sacrifices that we might not even be sure (or even aware) that we’re willing to make.
So ask yourself this: Why does being successful have to stem from only your job? Aren’t there other ways or other things you can participate in that would be just as rewarding or fulfilling? You may not realize it, but developing a healthy separation between work and home so that you can focus on your own personal goals and activities could be your ticket to even bigger greatness.
I’ve got some terrific news: My new niche website (NS2) is currently ranking on the first page of Google at #4 for my main target keyword!
Believe it or not, this comes as a great accomplishment to me because it means that all the tricks and things I learned through the first niche site do in fact work! This is also very exciting news to me because if I consider how much my first niche site (NS1) makes in terms of a modest residual income every month from the advertising, I now just DOUBLED my income potential! Can you imagine how much money I could be making after experiencing success with perhaps 5 of these types of sites? The possibilities are endless!
If you’ve noticed a slow down on the posting frequency here at My Money Design, first let me apologize. I don’t value my readers any less. No, instead something big has been happening behind the scenes. I gave myself a deadline of the end of June to launch my next niche website.
And you know what? I did it!
A brief introduction for those who don’t know me: My name is Matthew Allen and I blog over at Dumb Passive Income about all the things I’ve been doing to try to create online passive income. Creating sites and systems that will earn money passively has become an absolute obsession of mine. Admittedly, there is nothing passive about the amount of time I have spent and continue to spend to build up these sources of income. But, I am finally beginning to reap some of the rewards for all of my hard work. The coolest thing about building sites or systems to earn money passively is that once the work is done – you can just let it sit and earn while you work on something else. I’ve experimented with several different strategies, trying to find which works best for me. This is how I got to where I am today…
