Being in Job can suck your life away.
It can take away your meaning and purpose.
It can strip you of your soul.
It is death for the dead.
Now, I’m going to show you how you can get out of that dirty shit hole.
I am going to show you how to break out of Job.
Does it take time and some work?
But will the freedom will be worth it though?
Breaking out of Job, gives you the freedom to be who you really are, and live how you want.
If you stay, you slowly turn into a polyp:
One of those shrunken shriveled shrimp looking creatures in The Little Mermaid, not that I’ve been watching The Little Mermaid, but even if I were…
How I got put in Job
You might be wondering how I ended up in Job.
Maybe you can relate too.
Here is the quick version of what happened and what it did to me:
After nine long years, I was finally meeting up with a good friend who moved back in town.
We got caught up a bit, talked about old times, the future, and then later in the conversation he was like, “Dude, I am going to have to get to know you again, because it seems you aren’t the same.”
He said, “The Billy I USED to know used to be fun. The Billy I USED to know made videos. The Billy I USED to know played guitar, and do all kinds of creative things. I will have to get to know you all over again.”
What had happened over those nine years, was I had been locked up in Job.
Everything I had ever worked hard for, by going to a job every day, it made me lose everything, including time and money to do anything I truly enjoyed.
Even if I wanted to make hobbies out of my passions, I couldn’t even afford to.
I dug myself into a hole that I couldn’t get out of.
It literally sucked the life out of me.
Year after year, I was investing the money I worked hard for into things I had been taught I needed, like apartments, a truck payment, washer and dryer, stove, etc. This eventually made it to where I could no longer afford anything at all.
Have you been there?
I did not know about saving, investing, budgeting, and I made some dumb financial mistakes just to live up to others expectations.
I ended up in Job for commiting the crime of giving up on myself, and not following my gut.
I allowed myself to be influenced by other prisoners who scorned me for not wanting to be in Job like they were. They would mock me and laugh at my ideas.
“Get a REAL job!”
“Well, I hope that works out for ya, ha.”
I knew what I really wanted, but followed down this path because I allowed what others think to influence my decisions.
I followed the Job and create “stability” path because I had never been loved or accepted by family and most of my peers.
I was a true loner.
Every girl had rejected me. I had grew up poor, dirty, and dysfunctional, living in trailer parks most my life.
I was desperate for a kind of stability that I thought would bring me acceptance and love.
My gut said to pursue my passion for writing, music, and being an entrepreneur.
The pressures to conform and be normal, to find acceptance and love, drove me toward getting a good 8-5 job.
So I gave up.
Soon I found a job and was shackled by the new 7-4 schedule.
I got some boots, my Job suit, which was a set of brown pants, and a creme color shirt that buttoned down, and my name embroidered on the front left. I was to report every morning for assignment.
The irony is that I was driving a truck delivering port-a-jons because it was the beginning of my life literally going to shit.
Why would I work a job delivering portable toilets?
Because I just quit a business that gave me true freedom, and had to grab the first thing that would put money in my pocket.
I didn’t have the luxury to live in mom and dad’s basement until I found a new Job.
But enough about me.
I just wanted you to know that I know how much it can suck.
Now here is the solution, the escape route:
How to Break Out of Job
Breaking out of Job will be quicker for some than others, and it will take work.
For some, it will take merely instantly knocking down the walls you’ve built.
You’ve maybe unknowingly built your own cell.
For others, who are experiencing what I have, it will take digging your way out incrementally with a spoon.
There are a couple different options:
1. Up and Quit
You can walk right out the door today. You can also give a two week notice.
You don’t even have to plan.
The freedom comes instantly, and you will feel the rush and relief of having the heavy burden removed from your shoulders.
If you need money, start selling all of your stuff. You will only discover that the relief of not having all the stuff will feel great. Even the things you think you have emotional attachment to, once you get rid of them, you’ll find your attachment gone in a couple of days if not sooner.
Of course you are not going to lie around and do nothing. The next thing you will do is start working on something you find joy doing.
You can work gigs off of craigslist to earn extra cash in the mean time until you reach your goals. My experience has been that working gigs from craigslist most of the time feels more like you are doing someone a favor, than doing work. It’s not the same as being locked up in Job.
Just up and quitting your job takes balls, not because it’s a huge risk, but it will make all your fears rise to the surface to where you have to deal with them. This will make you mentally and emotionally stronger than most after you’ve dealt with them.
Again, you can leave right now, but you can also plan as much in advance as you want though.
Fuck or ignore people who will put fear in your heart by telling you to have something lined up, just in case. They don’t want you to be free, or they don’t know any better. In either case, they are living in, and coming from a place of their own fears.
Get rid of the stuff, break free from Job, make and save money, and invest it in doing something you know you’re good at.
If you are single with no kids, this should be a breeze. I know, because I’ve been down to nothing, no home, and living out of my truck.
I have also just up and quit, taking the risk to work on my own. You may fail. I did for a time. However, it builds a certain kind of mental/emotional strength that most won’t, and are too afraid to experience.
I realize that everyone has unique circumstances. You may have kids, like me, I have a son, and you can’t just up and quit.
Many people could just up and quit if they really wanted it bad enough, breaking free just like that, breaking down those cell walls.
Some will have to dig with a spoon, which means it will take some time.
2. Replace your income by starting a business that is based on something you are good at, and something you find joy doing.
When I was down and stuck financially, I was barely scraping by each paycheck. I could not even afford my own place to live. But I did my research and realized I could replace my income by starting a blog.
This is the best way to begin breaking out, and putting money in your pocket.
You are leveraging the power of the Internet, to break free from Job.
Start a blog that makes you money.
You think your income has to come from a job but it doesn’t. Think about what you enjoy doing and you’re good at. Imagine now that you can do this and it makes you money.
The most inexpensive way to do this is by starting a blog, just like this one, based on a subject you would enjoy creating content about.
Begin by writing five articles, or record five videos, or five podcasts.
Make sure your content gives value by offering solutions to other peoples needs. That’s exactly what I am doing here now: You are stuck in Job. I am giving you the solution to get what you want.
So as you are thinking about what moves you, motivates you, brings you joy, and how people can benefit from that skill, talent, or knowledge , please let me now share how your blog will make you money:
* Add a Donate button to your blog. When people are given great content, and get to know and like you, some are glad to leave a tip.
* Offer a Service. If you can teach something, guide someone in the right direction, fix something, or offer sone kind of consulting, you can charge or trade for your service.
* Create your own products online. You can have your own ebooks, audio programs, or video tutorials done where they are easy to order and download.
* Affiliate programs. Companies will pay you when you post their links on your site, and someone buys through those links.
You will want to add links to products relevant to the subject of your blog.
For example, if you have a blog about painting, you could recommend a particular brand of paint. It is likely that there is an affiliate program where that brand will pay you a percentage when someone orders through your link.
Setting up your blog with affiliate links is how you can begin to put money in your pocket in the mean time, while you are creating your own products.
Show other people how to set up their own blog that will make them money, just like I am doing with this article, and get paid when they sign up with the hosting companies which have affiliate programs you can sign up for.
The Big Picture
Imagine you have a system set up, where money comes in every day, that provides you with not only stability, but with enough income to live the lifestyle you want.
Imagine that this system is your blog. This is your blog where you create content that you enjoy.
People visit your blog. They click on your affiliate links. You get paid.
People visit your blog. They click on the links to your ebook. You get paid.
People visit your blog. They sign up for a service you offer. You get paid.
People visit your blog. They really like how you’ve helped them get a solution to their need. They click on your donate button to give you a tip. You get paid.
People see that you sell your artwork, and print copies too, or your music, or t-shirts. They click to buy. You get paid.
See how this works?
So now tell me, what brings you joy?
Are you ready to break out of Job?
Oh yeah, there is one more stream of income you can plug in to your blog business. I only recommend doing this as an additional income to what you are doing, and NOT doing it full time unless you truly have a passion for it. This stream of income can make you thousands per month.
This additional stream of income is called network marketing. Just choose a company you like that has a product you like. It usually requires a monthly purchase of the product or membership.
When you join, you can refer others to the company to enjoy the products, and you will get paid a percentage from their monthly orders.
You also get paid a percentage from the customers that they recommend, and so on down multi-levels. It is also known as multi-level marketing.
It requires a very small investment, some requiring that you merely make a monthly purchase, then you get paid when others are referred by you. Just like affiliate links, post the link they give you to your blog.
Some companies even reward you with nice size bonuses for when someone signs up to become a customer for the first time. One company I was a customer with, sent $50 every time someone signed up as a new customer, plus a percentage of their first order.
At the moment, I am not signed up with any network marketing company, but I will be joining one soon. Kick-ass rewards and prizes for anyone who signs up under me though, once I find the right company for me.
I will be writing more about this topic later, but imagine this being another stream of income you can plug into your business to keep you on the path of personal freedom.
That’s all for now.
Don’t be a polyp.
Don’t be a prisoner anymore.
I’ve shown you a way to break out of Job.
I’ve shown you how to get out of that hell.
What are you waiting for?
P.S. As Project Creative Freedom grows more and more, all the information on this site will be free. I will be selling shirts, though and one book I am writing will be free of charge AFTER you have read it and have completed the exercises in it. Afterwards, you will be refunded the money and you can keep the book. It will be your choice to be refunded, or let me keep the money as a tip.
