One of the goals on my Life List is to become financially self-sufficient. By this I don’t mean able to pay my own bills (already do that), but not being dependent upon some company that is out of my control for my income. I don’t want to fear that I could lose my job because the boss doesn’t like me, or that I might be let go because times are hard. I want to build my own streams of income so that I have more control over the financial flows of my life. I believe that entrepreneurship is central to who I am.
To this end, I have been doing quite a bit of research about creating small income streams in my spare time. I currently have one project in the works, with plans for another one after that. (More about this later.)
While doing this research, I have run across a number of other people who share my mindset. They are building businesses in order to pursue the adventures in their lives, whether that is traveling, spending more time with their families or just pursuing a career in something they love.
One such person is Cody McKibben, owner of Thrilling Heroics Consulting. Here’s one of the first things that caught my eye: “You can build an awesome business, you can live a remarkable life, and you can do anything and go anywhere you want!” If that doesn’t sum up what I am aiming for, I don’t know what does.
Cody’s mission this year is to “empower as many would-be freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other do-gooders to take back their power, to realize they don’t have to be just a cog in a wheel and take what life gives them.” This is a goal that I want to be a part of, and I am hoping to get Cody to help me make this blog even better.
