You may be holding down a corporate job today. But chances are that your monthly wages does not meet your expectations for a comfortable lifestyle not to talk of being rich. That means you are barely getting by. Because you can not come to terms with the condition you will face in the event that you lost the job. You are holding on to the job as though your life depends on it.
Neverheless, you are not to be blamed. You are a victim of locked in thinking. Yes, locked in thinking. I was a victim of this for so many years until something happened in my life and made me to begin to think of alternative ways of making money between my corporate job. Today I make a lot of money online doing genuine things, and I am no longer a victim of locked in thinking (to think that the way that you know to make money is the only way).
There are so many businesses you can do at your spare time on the internet, and net a lot of income till may be you decide to resign from your corporate job. Take for instance, affiliate marketing which is promoting other people's product on the internet for a tidy commission. I have seen many affiliates who make six figures monthly that they do not see any need for a corporate job. Are you a good writer? Then you can make enough money doing freelance writing jobs on the internet. There are several sites dedicated to this and many have found some wonderful income just working spare time or full-time as freelance writers.
Web development is another money spinner. You can learn it and start developing websites for people and you can comfortably get jobs online and do them at your spare time. There are wonderful soft wares on the net that you can use to design powerful websites in less than 1 hour. You can even bid for web designing or other jobs at sites like eLance, etc., and make money.
Do you realize you can work as a virtual assistant on eBay and smile to the bank? Better still if you are creative you can create a product or an eBook and sell to the whole world via the internet from your sitting room even at your spare time while still holding on to your 9-5 job.
