The Daily Grind You Don't Worry About Any More

You wake up one morning and you are living the dream. You look outside your bedroom window and think "suckers!" about those whom have to drive to work. You go to the kitchen and make a nice percolated coffee. You then 'commute' to 'work' yourself, which just happens to be walking from the kitchen, down the hall to the 'office at home' and 'work' is checking a bunch of emails.

Your business day consists of writing new articles, tweaking your websites and furthering your marketing and promotions to your home based business'. Or maybe your an eBay guru and you buy products which you end up selling at profit.

This is the elusive dream for billions of people working today. But with a few small changes, some smarts and a few ideas, you can be the next living the dream icon sharing your vision with others on how they can quit their daily grind too!

How To Quit Your Day Job & Quickly

The Daily Grind For The Majority Of Us

Yet for the vast majority of us, there is still the daily grind.

Almost all of 'us' will be working to retirement and then we can take some time off. But not if your smart and incredibly talented and gifted....which is you.......the reader :) (you ARE talented, are you not?)

So, when you are talented, gifted, and most likely (especially if you are reading this) ridiculously good looking, you KNOW, there is a BETTER way than to keep grinding on down the 'I just work here to pay the bills and mortgage' lifestyle.

A Preferred Lifestyle By Choice

That my fellow readers is to quit your day job.

Oh yes I can hear the howls of disdain, laughter and derision. Quit my job, are you MAD?

No. With foresight, planning, talent, and knowledge, you, yes YOU, can defeat the tyranny of the 9 to 5 grind.

Read on to discover the gems of how these magnificent grand schemes will work for your particular needs and live, finally, the life you have always dreamed of. (which is essentially saying your not any longer tied down to that rascally 9 to 5 grind)

The Route Of Family Inheritance

Have a family member about to hit the skies up high? Uncle Ernie hitting a century of life and you happen to be his favourite nephew or niece? Well, if your all about being the white sheep of the family, your about to hit the jack-pot.

When the family lawyers rings and brings the check out....quit your job

Marry Outside Your Station

Ahhhhh, this old chestnut.

Marriage, it matters not your education, social standing, background or previous financial position. Marriage especially to someone of wealth, is the great equalizer. Yo uhave your wily charms, talent, sly and quick wit and a penchant for a little badda bim, badda boom, in the boom boom boom, lets go back to my room dept.

Once you marry rich....quit your job

Start A Cult

One of my old favourites......... *cough* did I just admit that????? Ok.......

Starting a cult is always a great move, you have a bunch of followers, they pay you lots of money to join, you make up a rule book, you spout lots of stuff about the sky creature, you have lots of nookie with young nubiles. You also get tax breaks and lots of other tax status benefits. Well, why not, if a elderly sci-fi writer slightly crackers can create a cult......why can't you? It may even become something of a viral super smashhit when you pass on.

Once you get 1,000 followers whom pay you a hundred dollars a day...quit your job

Take Over A Small Island Nation

Become the favourite for being the national hero when you save a young bunch of kids from some horrible fate when holidaying on a small island nation.

You will be loved so much it will be a short transition to becoming the Prime Minister of the nation. Select your best friends as your cabinet and when you have changed the constitution to your liking start lining your pockets with all that wealth that the nation holds, but remember, noone likes a despot.....

Once your holiday is over and you have called your boss to tell him your ruling a country...quit your job

Eat Pray Love..........Make it HAPPEN

When all else fails.......

Beg, borrow, lie, cheat, steal, invent, use bullshit and be highly creative &

    Been self-employed since 1981....""they" gave me the "choice"--quit or be fired.......I said "never again".... I am not going to try to convince anyone that I am the best person to fill their "job".

    Been there, done that, never looked back. Self employment is the best thing you can ever do for yourself.
