If one revenue stream dries up, then it could mean the difference between survival or financial disaster and ruin – BUT – don’t WAIT for the water to run out BEFORE you dig your Well.. start now!
Begin to create extra income streams. Some will take a few months or even years to fruit, so begin NOW whilst you’re in your paid J.O.B. NOW is the perfect time to begin to get creative. The Worlds economy is not getting any better and that safe, comfortable little J.O.B. could be pulled away from you at any time. The other consideration is your Superannuation. With what has happened over the past few years and in the current economic times, there is NO guarantee of what your Superannuation will be worth. Too many people depend upon Super for their retirement nest egg – this can NO longer be the case and is a false sense of security. This money is controlled by a much bigger picture and trust me, your personal retirement lifestyle is not their foremost interest!
So get creative with your skills and start considering options. The key is to find something which creates a passive income stream. There are loads of opportunities out there. Choose a couple of things which ‘feel’ good for you. Speak to people, get advice .. the main thing is to take ACTION now.
When I made the decision to diversity, I found a selection of opportunities.
Whilst I had never been self employed before and in todays World of I.T., I quickly realised that I had a lot to learn if I was going to master this successfully (being old school with computers), it was a going to be a matter of sink or swim! Did I want to go back to that J.O.B or was my “WHY” for change and financial freedom big enough??. What I did know, is only the learn-ed succeed and you must embrace the fact that an ‘old dog does have to learn new tricks‘ – and so I did! The World evolves and if you think all you have to do is stand still, then you better hang! THAT attitude is called ‘comfort zone’ and it DOES NOT defy gravity !!
With that strategy in mind, I soon found Businesses which I believed would grow fruitfully and be virtually unaffected by recession.
With many years of hospitality and events under my belt, it was time to ‘get off the tools’ and work smarter, not harder. So I began my own Consulting & Marketing within the Industry. I truly love hospitality and so ‘selling’ myself was not hard, as I was coming from the heart.
Personal Development is also a passion to me, as without it I believe I would never have been ‘rescued’ and be here writing this website. We all need personal growth and development and I have put my experience and knowledge in the subject into a Program. Please visit my next page ‘Sal’s Program’ for a summary.
Another industry I diversified in was Shopping! Yes, I found a Business opportunity to build a Shopping Business, turn my living expenses into Assets and build a passive retirement income for myself. Further on this, I quickly realised the marketing potential and power of what I had in my hands and how it could change the game for anybody and in particular, independent small and medium Business Owners.
I now help Business owners to implement this marketing strategy and create an ‘exit plan’ for retirement.’ Creating for Business Owners a ‘quality lifestyle -v- simple existence’ for their retirement years, whilst in the interim increasing turnover within their Business and protecting their cashflow.
