"It's about the JOURNEY, not the destination."
I mean, if they mean that you should be alive and present in every moment, enjoying every day of your life...then of course, they're right.
But if they're talking about spending a loooong time to hit your business goals, they are dead wrong.
I don't know about you, but I want the trip to my goals, income and lifestyle to be as short and simple as humanly possible.
I don't think there's any point in wasting 3-5 years doing something that can be handled brilliantly in a few months with a faster game plan.
And that's really the key, isn't it? The game plan.

So, what’s your plan for turning your ANNUAL income into a MONTHLY income?
I’ve been doing this a long time. And, after several years, I can tell you that the same basic strategies are still the ones that most people get stuck on.
Start a traditional “brick and mortar” business.
Maybe you're a hairdresser who wants her own salon. Or an accountant who wants to go out on your own. There's nothing wrong with that. We need those people. But that's also not exactly a "short path" to your goals. That's 18-hour days and a lot of money, employees, inventory, and hassles.
Start a franchise.
Better experience. Steeper startup costs. I have a friend who started a sub-shop. It cost him over $500,000 to get the doors open. And if you go in there during the daytime hours, that's him standing behind the counter asking if you want your bread toasted or untoasted. He spent half-a-million dollars to buy himself a minimum wage job.
Make stuff to sell online.
I have to confess, I have a soft spot for this. But, I see these folks who spend all their spare time to make arts and crafts and blankets and hand-knitted sweaters ....and most of it just never sells. And, if it does, do the math: they're making something like $2 an hour for their time. You can't get wealthy on anything like that.
Rallying together a bunch of affiliates and joint venture partners, and rolling out a brand new offer 2-3 time per year. It works. But, I hated this model because the income was inconsistent, and I always felt like my success was dependent on getting enough affiliates behind me. I wasn't in control of my own business.
Create your own info-products.
I’ve made a lot doing this. And I enjoy it. But, as an opportunity for the masses, it’s really tricky. It requires that you’re a really good communicator or teacher with something valuable to teach that people will pay for.
There's nothing wrong with any of these models. Plenty of people have made them work, and are making them work.
It's just that I believe there's a shorter path:
I don't think it makes sense to waste 3 years of your life building a blog, a YouTube channel, or a big following when you can just work in a business that can pay you thousands of dollars THIS week. I believe that YOU should be in control of your own business.
In a nutshell, I believe that anyone - including you, can earn an incredible income without all the hassles.
So whatever game plan you choose to pursue, make sure it is a straight-line path to your goal.
You don't need to spend years. You can get there in a few weeks with the right plan.
In fact, I'll give you an example. I have a little “side gig” that I started a couple of months ago.
I saw a juicy little opportunity that I'd never seen before: a "collision" of two multi-billion dollar industries that are both hiding in plain sight.
Since I'd already made a great income in one of the industries, I was already intrigued. But the "One-Two" combo looked too appealing to pass up. So I jumped in.
Result? So far, my little “side hustle” has put thousands of dollars in my account this month. Not bad for some extra cash in the pocket.
If you want some details, hit the WhatsApp button and ask about my side-hustle. 🙂
But, my point is that I think anyone can get from where they are to where they want to go in LESS time than they think.
Go faster. You'll be amazed at how much better results you can get if you shorten your deadlines and start looking for ways to earn a great income NOW rather than later.
