You Have a Job but Want to Earn More

Usually, people have a full time job (Normally, a 9 to 5 job) but still looking for other ways to earn extra income. If you're serious about it, you'll have to improve your other talent apart from your expertise.

In my case, I'm a programmer by profession but you'll be shocked after learning my other passion which I utilize to earn extra cash. I'm sure you have an idea what it is coz you are here in my blog seeing lots of published posts. Yes, that's right! I love writing. And since I love doing it, I use it to create this blog, write lots of articles and submit my works to clients who avail my service and pay me in return.

What about you? What's your passion? Whether it is data encoding, programming or designing, whatever it is, you can use it to generate additional money.

Some people don't want to spend their time (8 hours) at work or in a four-wall office. Others hate their boss or dislike working with bully officemates. The result is they go to freelancing and prefer to serve themselves. I tried that before for 3 months but realized it was too early for me to make it my new career.  So I returned to the corporate world and formed a strategy. And that strategy is building a part-time business gradually while having a full-time job. By the time that venture becomes successful and the money I get from it is consistent/exceeds my job salary, then that's the time I leave my work and focus my full attention to it.

Before I end this post, I would like to share this with you. Take all the wealth of a rich person and give him/her a year. When a year ends, you'll be surprised upon learning that he/she earned it back or more than that. That's the power of a learned/acquired skill that all rich people know. It doesn't need money to make money. If you have the right skills, you'll get whatever amount you want. You'll have to work hard at first but don't dismiss the idea of working smart. What I mean is hire other people to do your business and outsource other works to them. That's where the idea of money works for you comes in. It's a very big topic so you won't find me discussing it here.

I hope you like it. Feel free to leave your thoughts below. I would be glad reading whatever you input.

Thank you!


  1. I might change career few years from now. Currently trying to mitigate the risks of this plan for a smooth transition. :)

    1. Thanks for your comment, Fred. What career are you planning to take? I'm curious. :)

Avoid Sticking To Unproductive People

Actually, this stuff I am about to share can be good or bad. It depends on where you get influence from. If the influence can help you achieve your goals, then that is good and vice versa if it can only lead you to misfortune. Anyway, I would like to put here the paragraph I read somewhere. I hope it makes sense to you. Avoid sticking to people who have hobbies of collecting stuff which are too much expensive. In the end, you'll be like them through the influence or the process.

Earn Real Money From Your Blog

If you want to make money from your blog, be serious about it and treat it as a real business. What I mean about that is don't depend on free stuff only and operate without spending a dime. Purchase a domain name either from these two well-known and trusted domain registrar: or . Consider also the storage or placeholder of your web pages or blog by buying web hosting. It is where you have a complete control over your website or blog including the design and code-behind.

Don't Look Outside, Look Inside

I learned that if you're planning and looking on what kind of business to start in, then don't look outside and be hard on yourself, but look inside. What I mean by this is don't imitate what others are doing just because that business is in or is doing well because chances are it will not work to you or you lose interest on it as time goes by. Look at your skill sets and choose one among those that you really love doing and profitable. Meaning even if you're not being paid to do it, you wake up every day and do it anyway. You will not treat it as a work or job because you love what you are doing. But I warn you that you should treat it as a business. Be serious in achieving your goals at the same time enjoy every moment.
