Not enough time to be rich,,,,

    The title was the best I could do to summarize what I mean. Which is, I finally understand how to make lots of money on the net.

    In fact I have the whole plan all mapped out in my head. Sure there will be little glitches and so on, but for the most part I know the big picture.

    The trouble is, I don't have enough time to implement my plan! I never could stay doing one thing on the net for a long period. I get bored easy.

    I also am burned out with writing, even though I already have others writing for me. I'm at that stage where if I could just hire one full time person I'd leap ahead big time.

    But I can't, not yet. So I just plod along, doing what I can, knowing all the things I could be putting together but don't have the time.

    Then again, life is about living in the moment, right? Money does no good if all you do is work for it. But I still wish I could get to that next stage! hmm

    You've got to find your motivation, and if I'm reading your topic correctly, it looks like you just aren't motivated. Find your passion!

    I can totally relate to you on the no time issue. I work a stressful corporate job and about to start school again. I have no time either, but I make time. I know the formula, and I must consistently apply it in order to be successful.

    I'm on a schedule with a million dollar pay out, and I'm stopping for nothing!

    I'm right there with you.  Being a freelance writer by profession....I'm so busy writing for everyone else, my goals are in slow motion.  On the positive side...I'm working on a clone, when I figure out to get it just right, I'll forward the info to you. smile

    Thanks for all the replies. I guess what I mean is, I know what I need to do, how I should do it and how to make it all work.

    The problem is finding enough time to do it all. By nature I'm a slow, methodical type. I don't hurry for anyone, even myself!

    So I find that the work I know I need to do is not getting done fast enough. Biz types with money would just outsource the work they can't do.

    But I don't have that kind of cash. So I keep chipping away at it but I know that with my speed it's going to take a long time.

    I know I need to work smarter, not harder. Well harder too, but I just can't seem to push myself faster.

    Oh well, if I can't push myself faster knowing I would make a lot more, I guess it's not as important as I think to myself. hmm

    I know how you feel, Bill. Sometimes I think I have too many irons in the fire, so to speak.

      Hey there Habee. Yeah, I don't know how others with kids and spouses can get anything done! Heck I'm single and dateless and I still can't get anything done. tongue

    I know how you feel, Bill. Right now I'm blaming it all on my day job... if I just didn't have to pay all these bills! I guess it's as good an excuse as any smile
