Well, I am sure that there are at least 49 Ways to Make a Living! No, seriously, I know that there are literally thousands of ways to make an income! I was just teasing a bit, because the other day, I released my new book, 49 Ways to Make a Living Without a Job. This book was released simultaneously on my bookstore website as an eBook, and on Amazon as a Paperback. My first time to publish on paper in about 20 years. To be honest, it felt kind of good to do it. And, so far, my paperback sales have been really good! Higher than eBook sales. So, I am happy that I decided to publish the paperback edition.
I know, many are wondering… because you are thinking that I already have a book called “49 Ways to Make a Living”. Well, you are partially correct. My previous edition, which is my all-time best seller is “49 Ways to Make a Living in the Philippines”. Many people told me, though, over the years, that the book had the wrong name. They told me that the ideas in the book could be used anywhere in the world, not just in the Philippines. So, I took them up on their advice, and I named this book, I think, more properly! The thing is that the ideas in the book allow you to earn an income without getting a traditional “real job”. So, I named the book “49 Ways to Make a Living without a Job”. And, I think that the name is perfect! I hope that readers think so too!
When I was writing this new edition of the book, I got thinking and realized that I have been earning my living without a real job for more than 20 years now! I have had a few short time jobs in the interim, but for the main part, I have gone more than 20 years without having to answer to a boss, etc. Let me modify that because I do have a boss. I have always said that when you are self-employed you actually have the toughest boss around – yourself.
I know it is true in my case. I am tougher on myself than any boss would be. I drive myself hard. I guess I might say I truly am a slave driver with myself because my expectations are high. So far it has worked for me because I feel that I have been very successful in what I do.
I hope that with this new book release, I can also push you in the way of being your own boss and succeeding beyond your dreams!
You are probably saying to yourself that you cannot become self-employed, because it costs a lot of money to start your own business. Let me answer that… if you have the money to have an internet connection and be reading this article, then you can afford your own business! The book will show you how. In the past 20 years or so, I have started many businesses, probably in the dozens in those years. So far, I have never spent more than $100 to start any business, and most businesses were started for far less than that. So, I know you can do it for not much money. I know because I live life and I do it every day.
So, anyway, I just wanted to let readers here on Ways to Make a Living about my new book. It is the kind of book that anybody who reads a site like this should find as a valuable tool! Check it out, I would love to hear from anybody who reads the book!
