Even when you have a good job that you like it is still a very good idea to have a other sources of making money – and having that additional income stream help you build a better life consistently.

The world is moving fast and often is more unstable than ever before.

That means relying on old ways alone is probably a very bad idea and one that can cause you all kinds of problems in life over the years.

Lets look at 7 reasons you should at least think about building one or two more income streams in addition to what ever you currently do;

  1. Not Enough Income to Get Ahead – Lots of people make enough to get by and that’s about it. There is nothing much left.
  2. Potential Loss of Job – Jobs go away daily – you can get let go or your company can go under without any advance notice.
  3. Freedom – If you barely get by you are going to feel trapped – but having ample income and savings gives you confidence and freedom to leave if you want to at any time.
  4. To Have a Better Life Now – When you earn more than enough you can take more vacations, pay off debt, fix up your home and cars and do so many other things that just make your life much better right away.
  5. Gain the Ability to Retire Your Spouse – What an ultimate gift to give your mate – when you earn so much money that they can quit their job and stay home if they choose – and do it with ease because of your income.
  6. Have Better Current Performance – Even in you current job, when you are confident and secure you can do better at your work.
  7. Build a Legacy – This is good for your loved ones later and also good for them and for you right now too. When you have clear goals and plans then you will do better all across the board starting immediately. It changes your ways of thinking and your priorities too.

There are lots of reasons to build additional streams of income – and they all simply help you Build a Better Life.

That’s really what its all about. Living a better life, helping your family more, helping your community and doing better daily and being able to have the power to decide how you spend your own time (time is life) and have the personal satisfaction of knowing that is all because of the intentional decisions you will have made.

Three things I would like for you to consider as income streams include Real Estate, Small Business Entrepreneurship and Trucking.

Two of them are easily started and can be done long term as part time businesses or careers – and one (Trucking) can be started part time while you go through training and getting your CDL but is really geared more toward full time. The good news is there are plenty of ways to make more money and you just need to come up with a plan that works for you right now.

Learn, Do and ImproveĀ 

Once you figure out what you want to do you need to get information about it, research it enough to get started, get some training and support and then just start taking action consistently and you will make progress over time.

When you look at it from the outside looking in it can seem scary and intimidating just thinking about how to do something that appears very complicated or difficult.

Yet when you break it all down to specific steps and then just focus on taking action and doing one thing after t the next and another after that and so on – before you know it you will be accomplishing more than you may have even imagined.

That’s the true Secret to Success.

The secret is that there is no secret – its just a matter of learning and doing and keeping on doing that until you achieve your goals and get the results that you want over time.
