What’s My Plan?


What's my plan? So I know many of you are asking, “What’s your plan?”  I have all these lofty goals, but how do I hope to achieve them?  These are very good questions.

Here’s my short answer: I don’t know.

It’s true.  I don’t totally know how I’m going to achieve my goals of making money on my own.  I have a few ideas, and a few things in the works, but no solid plan of action to get to where I want to go.

Now I know many people will scoff at that, saying I’m foolish for not having everything laid out ahead of time.  I should have a solid business plan, ideas of where money is going to come from, who my customers will be, etc.  But I beg to differ.

I have loosely-made plans floating around.  Like many others in Internet Marketing and similar areas, I am hoping to diversify my earnings among many different campaigns and jobs.  First and foremost, I’m a software developer.  I am always being asked if I do side jobs by people who need a new website or online tool or something like that.   For example, I’m currently working on a digital sign project for a local company.  While it won’t provide me with months and months of passive income, it’s good honest work and I’ll probably make an extra $1000 or so in just a few weeks of working a few nights per week.

While not my main proposed source of income, these types of side jobs are nice because they are different from my day job, a little challenging (but not too much), and they do provide some pretty easy money.  So “odd jobs” are one of my many methods I plan to use to generate income for my business.

In future posts, I’ll outline some of my other plans to make some money on the Internet.  But for now, I’d love to hear from anyone else that does odd jobs or “side jobs” to make some additional money in addition to their regular day job.

    I’m estimating I will need about $50,000 in income to hit these goals (and paid vacay wouldn’t hurt). So, hitting my travel, fitness & savings goals will take some money and even some flexibility. I’ve been applying for jobs and have had a lot of interest, plenty of emails and call backs- but the fun stops when I just lack the “years of experience” they seek… for 3 months it’s been a tough series of applications and I’m getting frustrated. It’s your typical “new grad in a down economy” sing song. I’m ready to fly.

  4. thank you for useful guidelines and just excellent info
