I currently have a stable government job with a decent salary, health insurance for my family, and retirement benefits. However, I don’t make as much money as I want to make and after two years of working from home due to the pandemic, I will soon have to report back to the office for a minimum of 3 days per week. I have been freelancing to supplement my income for a while now and I love the extra money, but I feel like I work constantly now.
I don’t want to go back to the office. My ultimate goal is to create a business where I make at least $500K net profit annually working from home and have the flexibility to enjoy time with my family and enjoy my life.
Through the freelance work I’ve been doing, I now have a potential offer to work for a client remotely for about 40 hours per week. The pay is higher than what I now make, but it does not have the benefits I need – primarily health insurance for my family. But, at least it’s working from home.
I don’t know what to do. Do I take this job as a stepping stone to be able to work from home until I figure out how to create a business that makes the money I really want to make? And most importantly, how do I figure out how to create a business that will make the money I want to make?
I’m torn between investing in sales training, coaching training, or figuring out how to scale my freelance writing work. How can I find out how much a top remote closer in sales realistically makes? Same for coaching and the writing business.
I need to get a game plan and start taking massive action to reach my goal and am not sure if taking the new job is the right next step, or not.
I would really appreciate your help getting my mind straight on these issues.
Thank you in advance!
