Look, I understand fully that we’re not all made of the same stuff, you know, we’re not all built the same, particularly if you compare those of us with an entrepreneurial streak with those who clearly don’t have one. However, having said that, it saddens me quite a lot to see how many people just give into that same old cycle of working pay cheque to pay cheque with no visible plan to progress financially or in any other area of their lives.
You can’t be doing the same thing over and over again and then complaining about the state of your finances and the clear lack of focus if you really aren’t doing anything tangible about it. That’s why I’ve put together a quick guide on how to make the experience you gain count because quite frankly with every next day that you spend living and functioning on this earth you gain that much more experience – experience which should not be left to collect dust.
You should use this experience to better your economic prospects at the very least and trust me when I say that I know exactly what I’m talking about since I came into some information about the more senior citizens killing it in the online freelancing industry of all industries!
So you might have caught wind of it if you’re active in this realm, but apparently the highest earning freelancers are those of the age group of 55+ and the graph depicts a smooth incline which demonstrates how earnings as an online freelancer are directly proportional to age, which in turn suggests that the earnings are in actual fact directly proportional with experience.
The older you get the less energy you have, as we all know, which is why some youngsters choose to travel now while they’re still young, fit and have energy to fully explore all the places they visit without needing to take a nap every now and then. Consequently, you want to use the experience you have to earn more money for less time spent working.
Otherwise your ability to earn will diminish over time as you can manage less and less work with age, but your most prized possession at this stage will be all the knowledge and experience you will have built up.
So how do you go about making the experience you gain count? At the very least you could do something like write an e-book and sell it via Amazon’s Kindle platform, or you can try and sell it directly, but you’ll have to be creative about how you deploy your experience and turn that into tangible value people will be willing to buy.
If you’re a statistics whiz for example, how about doing a live demonstration of how you managed to formulate a winning strategy playing something like the Wizard Shop slot? You would only need to write the e-book once or shoot one video of your screen depicting how you implement the strategy, then you simply sell it over and over again instead of having to continually exchange your time and skills for a pay cheque.
