The Benefits Of Working While Your Trying To Start A Blogging Business

Working On The Computer For Income Would Be Sweet!

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could make thousands of dollars a month, from home, in our pajamas…

I have a list of 7 reasons why working while your starting your blogging business is a good idea.  I wanted to share them here with you now.  I myself and successfully working and blogging, and even have an email subscriber, so I wanted to let you know I’m right there in the trenches with you.  If you are working and trying to build a business around blogging then maybe this might be just the inspiration you need to write that next outstanding blog post and keep going on your adventure.  I’ve been playing with the idea of visualizing while I’m working to kill two birds with one stone.  So as I’m writing this I’m visualizing making thousands of dollars in my pajamas at home.  It could be this post that does it for me.  If you like it, maybe you should subscribe.  I promise it’s going to be a win win for the both of us.

Without further adue, here are the reasons:

1. Income to Live

We all need money to live.  Money for ourselves, money for our family, money for charity, money for bills.  It’s not easy to start a blogging business so you had better have some income in place to pay the rent.  Granted, it’s not much to start and maintain a blogging business, something like $40 a month, with an email list and the website.  Your going to have to get that money from somewhere, and that place should have no limit to how long you can work there.  The result:  money comes in on a regular basis and you can pay to have your business, and to live.  I don’t think money is everything, I do think that it helps.

 

2. Blogging Sometimes Comes At It’s Own Pace

You could get all excited when you first start your blog and blog everyday for a month and then stop for 3 weeks.  You should strive to write on a regular basis with consistency but sometimes it’s hard.  When your on that learning curve it’s best to have something in place, a place you have to go to 5 days a week that gives you a break from your blogging business.  You may not get much in terms of results at first and it could kill your motivation to press on and continue forward.  It’s so important that you press on and reach your peak performance with posting on a regular basis and putting real work into your website.  Just know that it’s good to have something to fall back on when your not quite making money yet.

 

3.  Work Can Give You Something To Write About

I’ve written quite a lot about work and the challenges of schizophrenia.  Blogging can be a personal growth tool.  Write what’s on your mind until you figure out how you want to help people.  It might be slow coming, but just know by you visualizing and taking action your creating a better life for yourself, your family, and the world.  The point here is just to write.  Work can be something good to write about.  Especially if you love what you do.  Work does allow us to live, and what’s better than talking about what’s keeping you alive.  It’s a blessing and we should be making an attempt to talk about and feel the good things in life.  So if work is a passion of yours, write a helpful blog post about your job and teach us all the things you’ve learned.  Writing about work can be a great tool for personal development.

 

4. Work Can Give You Successful Experiences You Can Translate To Success With Your Blog

By writing about your experiences at work, you’ll free yourself to new levels of enthusiasm about blogging.  You’ll find, yes you would rather work in your pajamas with coffee in the morning.  Work on your blog!  Doing the grind work can be beneficial in getting to know people and how you can work better with them.

If you have nothing else to talk about, why not talk about your successes at work.  Write about it.  Get that email list up there and starting writing “Pillar content”  which as Ruth Soukup describes in her book “How To Blog For Profit Without Selling Your Soul” is any content that draws traffic.  Write awesome posts that get traffic.  As you write your business will unfold.

 

5.  It Takes Time To Build Your List

Yes, my friends, it takes time.  How much time it takes I believe is relative to how much action you take on blogging and building your website.  When your working a job you’ve got to be really inspired and dedicated to working on your website and blogging or your just going to lay on the couch on your hours off.  I think it’s best we work until we get where we want to be, so I say work at home when your done working your job.  Do it until the job is done.  If you want to make $200,000 a year from your blog, then don’t stop until it’s there.  Even if it takes you over a year to get your first subscriber, you are still in it for the long haul because you believe that blogging takes life to the next level.  Do it for me, do it for you, and take the time necessary to build your 2,000 subscriber list.  It’s going to take time, so that’s why it’s a good idea to be working, in case it takes a while for it to work out.

 

6.  Your Free Time Is Plenty Of Time To Build A Business

If you work 40 hours a week, you should still, even if you didn’t work weekends, be able to devote 5 hours a week to your blogging business.  That’s only an hour a day.  I don’t know if you have heard but there’s a book called “The 4 Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss and it’s about how you can run a business with very little time.  The rest of your time, because your business isn’t off the ground yet, is spent working, raising your family, doing housework, and living a healthy life but you can’t say you don’t have 5 hours a week to build a business.  That should be plenty of time to get even a post 5 times a week!  Or one long form content post a week.  We are looking for those traffic bringers so whatever gets you the most traffic and ultimately, subscribers and sales.  So even if you work it for only 5 hours a week after 10 years that’s going to be alot of posts, and you’ll be a master writer at that point… after doing it for 10 years.  Just invest the time when your not working, and it’s going to pay off in personal growth, that much I can promise you.

 

7.  Working For Someone Else Will Make Working In Your Pajamas That Much Better

Just think of sipping your coffee in your pajamas, writing your next Pillar piece.  One you know will get you subscribers, and one you know will eventually result in sales.  Having spent that time working from someone else, taking someone elses orders,  being afraid of them because they could take your job away from you…. all that will be over.  You spent quality time working with people, an experience no one could ever take away from you.  You are a better person for working that good experience in the industry.  As Mike Dooley says, you’ll look on those days you struggled with fondness.  We all just have to keep writing.

 

Conclusion

So considering you have plenty of free time, and want to earn more money, I say blogging is for you.  You don’t have to take my word for it, just try it and see how you like it.  When your starting a business, like I am, you might want to keep your day job, until you start making money.  There are a lot of advantages to doing it this way.  If you liked this post, please subscribe to my email list.  You will be happy you did!

A Pause From My New Book, Reflections, And A Poem

I’ve started a new book.  It’s called “Love, Sex, Marriage, Babies, and Schizophrenia”.  It’s no coincidence that those things all happened in that order.

I started it yesterday, and I’m going to write like I have the fury in me, over the course of the next few weeks.  I’ll be drinking and writing, and having the time of my life.

I just wanted to write this for you to let you know I’ve been doing something.  I haven’t really been paying much attention to this blog, and it’s a disservice to you and me.  That’s why I wanted to come to you to write today to let you know what’s happening with Jesse Creel.

A lot of what’s been covered on my blog has been about employment and working even though you have schizophrenia.  Although I will always be writing about what it’s like to have schizophrenia, I may not continue to write about work.  Not for someone else at any rate.  I like to think of myself as a businessman, and I’m in business for myself.

In all reality though, I am a worker.  That’s what allows me to try and start a business.  If I couldn’t pay what I needed to pay, this blog, my book, my rock and roll songs, wouldn’t be possible.  The point though is to work my way out of working, and live an abundant and joyful life with my family.

I’ve been trying for many months to make a business out of this blog and I’m not getting the results I’m looking for.  I’ve been reading and trying to refine my idea so that I can see “Will It Fly”.  I might take the focus off working an hourly job, because you know that working an hourly job isn’t as good as barely working and having stacks of cash.  I think I may take a try at writing for entertainment purposes only, instead of self help.  See what kinds of results I can get when I’m writing about say for instance, marriage or sex.

All I know is that I have to keep the action going.  I’ve been visualizing, but the zest really comes from the action of writing, so I’ve got to keep it going there.

The reflections are that work is work, and really, I’d rather be doing something else.  I’d rather be writing.

I’ve written about my expectation of winning a massive jackpot, and my new and further expectation is that my new book will be a New York Times Bestseller.  I talk a big game, and I don’t know anything else to do but die or do it and I’m still alive.  So I must be doing it.  I just say one should dream big.

So I’m going to keep this blog, and I’m going to keep my email list, and if you haven’t yet signed up for it, do that now.

I don’t know when the next post is going to be, but I want you to know that this won’t be the last time I write you.  I’m keeping you in mind, and I want to help, if only just to entertain you.

So I leave you with a poem I’m writing just right now…

Ode To Work

Oh work, how you make me live

Oh work, how you allow me to give

Oh work, you give me my money

Oh work, I think of you even when your not there

 

Oh boss, I love you

Oh boss, You’ve given me a chance

Oh boss, I want to do right by you

Oh boss, thank you for a job

 

Oh worker, do your job

Oh worker, I respect you

Oh worker, would you like a cigarette

Oh worker, will you come back next year

 

Oh job, I’m going to retire you

Oh job, I’m going to be a millionaire

Oh job, thank you for all you’ve done for me

Oh job, I’ll be back as a customer because I’m NOT burning this bridge

 

 

Thanks for reading, I really love you for doing that.

Please do sign up for my email list, you be doing you and me both a favor.

Take Care,

Jesse Creel

How Do You Finance Your Dreams Of Blogging For Income?

Work Hourly.

Right now I’m paying $40 a month to keep this website running, and to keep a list up on my site.

It costs 10 dollars a month for the site, and 30 dollars a month for the email list.

That’s not too bad considering you could be paying a lot more to be part of a network marketing company.

And maybe I will join another network marketing company, when my list gets big enough.  I may want to sell the Empower Network again.  Only this time I’m blogging on my own domain, and not on the Empower Network blog.

Because that’s what I would tell you to do if you joined the Empower Network with me.  The information is worth the price, and you can learn a lot by being apart of the Empower Network.  I propose that even if you never resold anything, you will still get your monies worth.

But I am in the business of creating profits.  So I want to sell things, and I want you to sell things and I am looking to be a part of the business of selling information.  I say if you don’t want to spend the money on Network Marketing, then you could build your business from scratch by starting your own blog.

And that’s what I do.

I work hourly 5 days a week and I earn my pay.  I don’t get paid that much because most anyone could do the work I’m doing but I’m still improving enough, and providing enough value to get raises and bonuses.  So I’m doing good at my hourly job.  If you want to learn how you can duplicate my success with your hourly job and increase your pay, you can read Success Hourly, my free e book.

So say you’ve got your hourly job, and you’ve read Success Hourly, and are on your way to getting raises there, then you may still want more!  You may want to take what you earn per year and turn that into your monthly income.  I say it can be done!  And you can do it online.  And it all starts with blogging.

So I work my hourly job and I read and write with my free time, along with taking care of my family.  It’s a good life and who knows, when I’ve finally made it with an online business I might STILL want to keep working my hourly job.  Although I probably will take the time and spend more of myself on the writing.

So I’m secure.  Nothing is going to stop me from making it online.  I plan to make it BIG.  When I do my focus is going to shift from helping people work their hourly jobs, to helping people blog and make money off e books and network marketing.

Because think of it, if you had an e book for sale and it did well, that would be an easy transition into network marketing.  You would already have a list and a body of work to support your efforts in whatever you choose to do.  It’s really a win win.  I say don’t settle for less.  Make more!  Earn more!

And it doesn’t take much money to get a business going.  I’m paying 40 dollars a month and that’s what I need to blog and get a list going.  And I can easily pay for that by working a few hours each week.  And if you consider the potential returns, you’re really risking very little with A LOT to gain.

But today was a good day.  I started at 10am this morning cutting ham off the bone and turning the ham into portions for sandwiches.  I spent two hours doing that, then I was sent to the other two stores, driving the box truck, to drop off bacon and crackers.  That took me about 3 hours.  I spent another hour in the store after I got back from my trip and I got off at 4pm.  A good six hours.  I got paid today!

And there will be plenty more where that came from.  The place I work at will have me for as long as I want to stay there, and that’s a good thing, because with blogging and starting a business online, you really could be looking at years before you start to get any results.

The way I look at it is, you have to put about 10 years of it in before you can say you’ve mastered it.  And I definitely want to master blogging.  So I’ve really got another 8 years to go before I reach that time frame.  Chances are I’ll make my first dollar before I’ve mastered blogging, and that’s a good thing, because I can learn as I go.

Because I say you can be at any point in your business development and STILL be able to provide value to the reader.  So it doesn’t matter if you’ve never blogged before, you can get started today for very little money.

And if you want to free yourself from your job, like me, that’s exactly what you’ll do.  And you’ll work it, day in, day out, really adding the bam bam bam bam to everything you do, and you’ll be a better person because of it.  I say the more work you put in the better.  David Wood of the Empower Network recommends you blog daily.  I don’t do that much, but I do post on a regular basis.  If you want to get updates on this site, put your email address in and subscribe.  I’ll send you out the link to the latest post so you know when one is up.

And you can come back and get more inspiration!

I just wanted to write this to you to let you know that you can put your money to good use by blogging and starting a business online.  And that your investment in yourself could really produce a return.  But you’ve got to keep working your hourly job to support yourself in the meantime, but hey, who knows, with enough daily work you could be free in no time.  But really though, it will probably take you a number of years to make any money at all.

But I know it can be done because there are examples of it all over the internet.  You can make money blogging and selling e books!  All it takes is some time everyday, a work ethic, a little money, and a big ambition.  And you can run your blog and work an hourly job at the same time!  There’s really nothing to lose.

So go now and write your blog.  Write your e books.  Get your list up.  Read books.  Take action and improve your life!  Have a beer and drink to your health, wealth, and wisdom.  Here’s to your success!  Cheers!
