A big theme for people wanting to learn marketing is they are looking for a way to escape their wage job.
A lot of times is for the freedom and ability to control their income.
Sometimes it’s a reaction to being treated so poorly at work they don’t see any other strategy except to escape to self-employment.
One of our clients started a new job and was on temporary status for the first 6 months.
Unfortunately, his mother passed away during the second month of his new employment.
Distraught, he left work to take care of family.
He reports that his new bosses were understanding enough.
When it came down to it, he discovered they were not going to grant him bereavement pay.
The standard in America is 3 days of pay when a parent dies.
His boss told him he was getting nothing!
Not a single dollar to get him through one of the most devastating life events a human has to go through.
He sucked it up. His boss, “graciously” allowed him to take his laptop to his parent’s home state, and perform his tasks via telework.
So during the week he had to bury his mother, console his grieving father and siblings, he logged in every day and did 8 hours of work.
Months passed. When the cloud of grief started to dissipate he came to understand what a lousy job situation he had.
Perhaps most important, he realized how he only had himself to depend on.
He continued to perform his task but resolved to get free of his dependence on paid labor.
So every day, he studies marketing, in part by using our daily email product, Timeless Profit Principles.
He now has a website, a product and marketing system in place.
He is making revenue and steadily raising it to the point where it is equivalent to his salary.
In other words, due to insensitive treatment, he is making a side income in addition to his pay.
And in the next few months he will give notice at his job and walk into freedom.
So if you’re currently working a job and want something better for yourself and your family, subscribe to Timeless Profit Principles.
The daily email shows up at 5 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Every message contains a fundamental aspect of marketing you can use to build your own vehicle to freedom.
See you on the high side, FG.
