You Don’t Have Time to Waste On Your Publishing Career
If you’re young and have your whole life ahead of you, don’t bother reading this.
This is for everyone else—everyone else who doesn’t have time to waste on learning how to make a serious passive income.
It’s for everyone who doesn’t have time to figure out how to make some money to retire on.
It’s for everyone who have tried everything else.
It’s for those who have a little money put away, but not enough hours on the clock.
If you’re older, in mid-career or later, and you’ve been around the block a few times, this is for you.
The really good news is you are much wiser in your older years.
You no longer make the mistakes you made in your twenties, in your thirties or even in your forties.
You are wiser now. You have confidence now. You now know that there is no such thing as a “free lunch” when it comes to building a successful business.
You understand that everything has a price. But now you are willing to pay that price—as long as it’s reasonable and it’s a fair trade.
The bad news is you’ve got some years behind you, and you really don’t have time to waste on nonsense.
You don’t have time to waste on schemes that don’t make sense and simply don’t work.
You don’t have time to shell out a few bucks here and a few bucks there to “see if it works.”
You really don’t have time because it will take two to five years—from when you start—to really hit your stride… to make money… and to really reap the rewards of your hard work.
You are at a point where you need to make a decision as to whether you’re all in or not.
Because if you’re not all in, then you should give up the dream of having your own business—a business where you can make a passive income and retire quietly without worrying about money.
Now is the time to decide whether you dive in or stay on shore and be safe
Now is the time to make a full commitment—a commitment of all your resources, time and money—to your new life. The years of flailing around are behind you .
The years to straighten up and fly right are here now and before you. You can’t take any chances on something that “might work.” You can’t go timidly into the shallow water to see if it’s to your liking.
You don’t have time to build an audience on Facebook.
You don’t have time to get people to “Like” your Facebook page as if you’re trying to get a cat into a cardboard box so you can take him to the vet for a neutering.
You don’t really have that kind of time.
Yes, building an audience on Facebook is a strategic play—if you’re 25!
But not now.
Not now when you’re in mid-career and you want to get out of your J.O.B.—or even if they want you to get out.
You don’t have time for painful “Like” Facebook strategies. Those work for those who have no money and plenty of time.
But for people like you who have been in the work force a little bit longer and saved up some money, you need a quicker and more reliable strategy.
Because at the end of the day, no matter how you look at it, you have a whole lot less time than money.
Even if you don’t think you have money to start a new venture, you have even less time to fool around on promises that “anyone can do this, and it won’t cost you a dime.”
That may be true for some twenty-something who really doesn’t know anything, has no money and plenty of years ahead of him.
Normally, any idiot can’t run his/her own business, but now that you’re older and wiser, it is safe(r) to say that anyone really can do it.
You just have to get out of your mind that you are going to do it without paying the piper a little. Not a lot, but a little. You still have to pay some dues.
And it’s never too late to think big
Your identity is NOT set in stone.Whatever you did in the past is in the past. Now is time for a new life–a new journey.
If you’re 40, think about the next 40 years. If you’re 50, think about the next 50 years. And if you’re older, now is the time to go all out and make the best of the next 30 or 20 years.
Doris Day is alive and well at 92 and has been quoted as saying, “I’ve had an amazing life!”
Jack LaLanne didn’t pass on until he was 96!
And even small steps can make for big changes.
Back in the fifties, there was a man who was a used-up salesman—he spent the first fifty years of his life banging his head against the wall. But then he saw something, and knowing he didn’t have much time in his life to dilly-dally around, he went all in. You may or may not have heard of him, but this man, Ray Kroc, at age 52, embarked on a journey to make McDonald’s what it is today.
Another man built his business in his later years. This man was Harland Sanders, better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Pemberton created his Coca-Cola drink when he was 55.
While it’s never too late to start a business, you have to remember that time is not on your side, but the value you bring to other people and the knowledge you’ve accumulated over the years is on your side—the side of success.
