I Paid Cash For a House TodayBy
TODAY has been one of the most amazing days of my life. It is ranked just behind being saved, getting married and having kids. I bought a house and paid CASH for it. No mortgage company, no bank and no loans. It’s not a mansion, it’s only about 1700 sqft and 1.33 acres of land but I was fortunate enough to basically write a check for it and bought it instantaneously. It is absolutely the coolest feeling ever. Eventually it will be a rental property, it’s not my dream home but it was a good deal and I could buy it without having to sell my current home.
I saw an email today with some stats that were completely shocking, there are over 14 million people in America without a job and many of our largest companies are still expecting to lay off people. We have to take control of our future we can’t rely on large governments or corporations to provide us with jobs, security or steady pay checks any more. I remember back with I first started with Coastal Travel we were 116,000 dollars in debt only making 25,000s dollars a year. One of my biggest fears about working from home was is it a legitimate home business. There are so many scams on the Internet these days. I wanted something that was lucrative and stable and allowed me to make money quickly.
Now I think the exact opposite, is there really a stable job out there? Are all jobs a scam, do they just hire you until they have a bad quarter and then fire you? The bottom line is simple, there are bad people everywhere in every company and every corporation. There are bosses that will take advantage of you and there are people in business that will take advantage of you as well. The question that comes to mind most often is shall we look for stability or look for something that we can control and we know with our own efforts we will get rewarded fairly?
If you work from home not all days are good days but on your worse day being self-employed remember this. Most employers pay you the least they can afford to pay you for only as long as they need you. If you need the job you have made sure you stay late and come in early and give it 110% every day. When it comes down to make the decision to cut someone you may survive longer than the next guy. If you want to work for yourself and be in control look for a solid, legit and lucrative home business. Any business, find something you enjoy and give it all you’ve got.
We started working from home 5 years ago while I was in the military. Today we have made a 6 figure income every year and we just PAID CASH FOR A HOUSE!
