The Luxury of Working for Yourself–What Only the Few Smart Ones Enjoy

Reality

About 10 years ago, I was like many of you; I enrolled at the Law School, studying hard and with the sole aim to become a lawyer by working for a law firm–9 to 5 or 9 to 7.

I didn’t see anything wrong with this–in fact my entire education, even at the masters level, seems to help entrench the notion of working for someone.

You are born, you go to school and then after that, you will find a job and work until 65 years or 60. And then go on pension at 65–following which you may die at 70 or if you are not lucky, while even working. So you only live for 5 years without really not working; that’s even when you are old, weak or sick to enjoy this free time.

The above is the norm; what majority do and what I was going to do too.

Then I started reading articles online from some very smart and happy people like Zen Habit, John Chow and the others who challenged the status quo

They said trading your time for money (working for someone) is the dumbest way to make money in life–at first, I didn’t understand it.

And then I realised; the most important luxury to have in life is time–but then time without money is useless. A lot of people have money but do not have time to even enjoy it or spend it with the people that matter.

The balance is; have enough time and enough money which only a few smart people have.

So I decided to join this smart clan, they call themselves the new rich–rich in time and money. And all they did was to work for themselves–by creating systems that will be making them money even when they are sleeping.

I came online at 5am today because I couldn’t really sleep. So I decided to work on my dissertation for my second masters, due for September submission. Read more

CHRIS-VINCENT Writes: How I Became Less of An IDIOT Which Helped Cut Down My Discontentment

Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri

Yesterday, I watched a documentary on Netflix titled Minimalism which looked at how a growing number of people in America have decided to break away from the ‘American dream’ which largely equates success to possessions—without any real evaluation of what really makes an individual happy. Many of the people in the documentary had left their 6 figure paying jobs which made them miserable to live the ‘minimalist lifestyle’–having found content in that.

Personally, I’ve been on a slow journey to becoming a full blown minimalist—some friends think I am already there but I believe I can do more when it comes to minimising how much I have and the sort of importance I place on materialistic possessions.

Currently, I own just two pairs of  Topman jeans (I bought two of the same kind so you cannot even see the difference), about 15 white-long sleeve shirts, a few T-shirts and about 5 coloured long-sleeve shirts. I have about 3 pairs of shoes and a lot of boxer shorts.

I mean, the above is my entire wardrobe—if you add my 3 blazers and 3 suits. Even this, I feel they are too many for one person and I will use the next few weeks to get rid of as many as possible. I want to be able to live on 33 items all together.

A few years ago, I used to be a complete IDIO, just like many people who harbour an unquenchable desire to buy and own more things—with the market continuously ensuring that they are never satisfied with what they already have.

It’s everywhere around us in a form of advertisement: you may have the latest iPhone but within 6 months, another will be on the market, making yours old. As human beings, we have a sickening desire for goods and services—and this insatiable desire is what’s being exploited by the markets around us, which has given birth to consumerism.

For many years, we’ve equated human success and happiness to material things when it’s clear around us that, this is not true and a person’s happiness level does not increase proportionately with an increase in money or material things. Read more

How I Made Over 400 Dollars On Christmas Day Without Doing Anything—From A Single Article I Wrote A Year Ago

In 2015, I decided to use satire to address some societal issues–poking fun at serious issues to further conversation and to seek corrections.

In the same year, Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses continued–as usual, with America, a friend and global human rights watchdog looking the other way.

So on 25th December 2015, we wrote a satire for ScrewLife.Com, talking about Saudi Arabia’s ban on Christmas celebration and using that piece to zoom in on other of its human rights abuses.

That day, the article went viral–and made us about 300 dollars in 2015 in Ad revenue.

That article has been SHARED 183,000 times on Facebook alone. Read more

Globally, retailers are going crazy today with huge sale offers–and as always, if you want to buy something, you have 24 hours slot to get the best bargain ever. So if you ever wanted to start a blog, this is the hour to kick-start it.

Blogging has been my source of income for the last few years. I make enough to pay for my expensive rent in UK, bills, car insurance and everything.

I even paid for Law School with the revenue from my blogs; this is the reason why I did not take any student loan in the United Kingdom.

And it cost a hell lot of money to go through the Law School—so this should give you an idea as to the limitless revenue potential of any blog.

My sister quit her job as a nurse in Ghana late last year to become a blogger and she is making three times the salary she earned as a nurse in just 2 and half months—and she just started so she will soon be racking things up. Read more
