So it happened that yesterday was not a good day for me.
I woke up tired and emotionally down.
I wasn’t motivated to do anything under the sun.
What would you do in this situation?
What you would do depends on who you are.
If you are an employee, telling your employer that you won’t come to work because you are “emotionally down” would be the funniest thing in your office that day and you may never resume to that office again.
If you are an entrepreneur however, you could make one or two calls to inform your employees that you won’t be at work.
Because I am an entrepreneur, I was able to do the later.
That’s a great freedom, right?
Yes, but there is something even sweeter and that is; even as I didn’t make it to work like normal days, I still made money – normally as though I was there at the office.
This is what I call “making money while you sleep”.
I think this should be your goal.
But you may ask me, “Justine, how is this possible?”
Simple but not easy!
What every entrepreneur does is to build a business system that can work with or without them.
These business systems includes human beings (as employees), technologies and machines.
These business systems work hard to render unique services or to produce and sell unique products.
If you are able to build your own business till this level, you can make money, even while you are sleeping.
This is possible because you have human and machines that work for you either you are present or not.
It’s not so easy to build a business system but it’s possible if you are serious.
The first thing to do is to be on the lookout for human wants you can satisfy (uniquely)
Don’t just walk or drive around your town or city, look for an opportunity to make something better.
Don’t just listen to the political or football arguments of your friends, listen to their complaints and problems and get your head thinking on how you can gather people to create products/services to solve some of these problems.
Build a business system around the problem you solve and you can wake up on Monday and tell yourself, “I’m not going to office today”
I believe you can do it, if you are willing to pay the price.
If you are confused and don’t know how to go about creating your own business system, worry no more.
