SEPTEMBER 2015: Hi there, I’m Vic; this is me here, in January 15 in the ancient town of Hoi An in Vietnam. I was able to pay for myself and my partner to go, with money I had made on the internet. The picture of him is from our stay in Saigon. It was an amazing trip and ever since I have been trying to focus on increasing my income through the internet. This has been a winding road and not very structured, so I made the decision to get some focus! I want more trips like that one.
I have set myself the goal to retire from my 9-5 job by January 2017. So that gives me just over a year. Do-able? I think so. My go to phrase is ‘With a positive mind set, I can achieve ANYTHING!’ and I truly believe that.
How did I arrive at this point? And why now?
I’ve been a psychiatric nurse for the last 20 odd years. It’s been an interesting job to say the least, sometimes great, but mostly quite challenging and generally pretty awful! The thing that bugged me the most was the shift work, having to work nights, weekends and public holidays. Always having to work when everyone was out having fun or sitting down to enjoy Christmas dinner – it sucked big time!
I tried out lots of different things, to try and open some doors for me to leave, but nothing seemed to work. A few years ago I found some focus from somewhere, and used my nursing qualification to retrain as a public health nurse. I’ve been doing this role for a couple of years now and I love it. I don’t dread going into work, (which is an amazing feeling btw!) and I have finally reached my goal of no weekends, no nights and no public holidays.
Back in 2013 I tried a little experiment. I wrote an eBook and published it via Amazon Kindle. The book took me about a week to write, and cost me about $10 in total, which was spent on a few photos in order to create the front cover. It surpassed all my expectations. For about the first year I was probably averaging about $300 a month from it. It was such a buzz!
For the last 2 years, that one week’s worth of time has consistently earned me about $60 a month. Now, I know that this is no great wow figure! But it’s what it represents that is important. I do absolutely nothing at all to bring in that $60. What if I had 2 books, or 5 or 10?
What this experiment did for me, was ignite a belief and a realization that you can actually make money online – quite a lot and quite easily too!
This experiment has exposed me to a whole new world, which I never really knew existed. It has shown me that there are huge numbers of people making excellent incomes and living their chosen life style, thanks to the internet. I’m like ‘I want a slice of that!’
This is where the goal came from and this is how ‘IncomeObjective’ was born. Why not me? Why not you?
I have tried out a few different ways of creating income streams and making money; selling things on Amazon, selling information products and using private label and private resell rights.
I have no special powers, insider knowledge or excessive bouts of luck. I am a regular person – probably much like yourself. I have seen and experienced that this can work, and have a fighting determination to build on my experience and reach my goal. Through IncomeObjective I am going to achieve this goal and share with you how I do it!
I don’t know a lot about making money on line, but I do know a little bit, and this is what I am going to build on and share with your. I have found a great community of people who also have the same drive and passion, who are helping me along the way. ‘Wealthy Affiliate‘ have been beyond helpful in supporting me to get going. You can read my review of what they offer here.
But in the meantime, watch this space; I would love to hear from you if you are on this journey. Maybe you’re thinking about starting it or maybe you’ve already started and had some success. Either way, share your advice and your experience; I am going to be doing the same…..
