How To Build Your Own Job – Would You Hire You?

What did you think the last time you saw a pool cleaner? Did you know they do really well? Now, there’s even a franchise to teach you how to clean just tile and grout – any tile and grout! How about the bed bugs in the east? You get a steamer, learn to use it and yes, we’re talking $100k a year with bed bugs and each of the businesses mentioned so far. My son makes $50k repairing iPhones part time!The advantages of building your own job are obvious. You’re in command of your life. You make all the decisions. You determine your income by your get-go. You can’t be fired unless you fire yourself. The disadvantages are obvious too, aren’t they? No health insurance. You are responsible for everything. You’ll probably work some long hours to start. And what about the money? The day you start you’ll have zero coming in. AND it’s going to take at least $1,000 to build your own job. However, it can be as simple as painting or re-painting addresses on curbs. (A) It needs to be done. (B) It is a safety factor (emergency vehicles can see them). (C) You can get $25 to $50 per job, and you can probably 15 a day, simply by knocking on doors. It can be as complex as doing computer repair where the customer lives or has their business. Demand is huge. A $60 to $120 minimum would be low.How do you figure out what job you want to build? Start with your passion. If your passion is plants, find a wholesale supplier near you, get a business license, and a van / truck, like a used U-Haul. But BEFORE you do that, figure out your marketing. Most businesses fail because they didn’t figure out how they would do their marketing (and what it would cost) to attract enough business to make sense. In the area where we live there are vast empty areas between population areas. There are tons of well-positioned vacant lots where a person could sell plants and no one would bother you. You could scout out locations, and get a schedule going to be in each location for X hours on a particular day of the week. What’s your marketing cost? Zip! Who’s your buyer? Commuters among other traffic. If they get used to you being there every Wednesday (for example) they’ll stop and buy and tell others.Can you “Test Drive” a micro business? Sure. Sticking with the plant example above – go to Lowe’s or Home Depot and buy some plants on sale that you think would sell. Make up some very visible signs. Go out to a vacant lot where the traffic passes on the outskirts of your city. Sell the plants. Now, be aware, you should be able to buy the plants for less if you do a good job finding wholesale suppliers.However, you’ll learn a lot from the test drive, won’t you? If you buy a plant for $40.00 wholesale can you sell it for $59? $49? Let’s say $55. You make a gross profit of $15. If you can sell 27 plants at that profit – that’s $100,000 a year. Impossible? NOT!We can tell you, your average profit in the iPhone Repair Business will be about $40. Test this business by calling 10 friends and asking: “Do you know anyone who broke their iPhone?” We can tell you, you’ll find demand! 10 iPhone repairs a day is $100k a year.You may not be cut out to build your job. Working for a corporation is something you get used to, and it’s hard to change. It’s important to test drive whatever job you decide to build. Demand is important. Doing something you’ll enjoy is important. Know this: You can do what you set your mind to do. We’re cheering for your success!
