Reader Question: What Are Your Pursuing?

18 June 2010 3 Comments

What are you spending your energy and time on?  Please select one or more of the following and add any comments you might have:

  1. A job because I’m unemployed
  2. A job because my job sucks
  3. A raise or promotion at my current job
  4. Education
  5. Getting a business off the ground
  6. A second income stream
  7. Better return on my money
  8. Something else
  9. Nothing

Hopefully, you didn’t select #9.

For me, I’m hitting #6 and #7 pretty hard right now, but I’m also working pretty hard at my job working to earn more money through making more sales.

If you chose #5 or #6…

Be sure to stop by first thing Monday, as I will be discussing the characteristics of attractive businesses and income streams that I want to be a part of.  If you’re looking to be your own boss at some point, you won’t want to miss this post.  See you then…

    5 6 and 7 is what's generally coming to mind for me right now.

    Mostly along the lines of solo gigs and intellectual property for #5 though 😛

    I'm currently in 3 and 4 with hopes to move into 5-7 territory sooner than later.

    In #4 I'm taking advantage of tuition reimbursement from my employer to get my MBA, which will hopefully translate into #3 and an increase in income.

    Since I'm in a really steady industry (yes, even in this market) with high potential for salary growth I consider my salary to be "bond income" and plan to assume more risk in my investments and business ventures. But for now I'm hoarding cash and will be focusing on school when I start in just a matter of weeks.

    I’m working on #3 right now. Eventually I want to start my own buisness but feel like I need more experience and a better title first before I strike out on my own.
