Hi All,

I'm just a normal guy, from a normal town, working a normal job, looking for a change in my life. Frequently, I have this not so normal dream where I fire my boss, but not for a better job or a better boss (honestly he's awesome!).. I dream of ditching the 9-5 job to go off and do my own thing. I want to control my own destiny, own the entire profit from my labor & be able to work anytime from anywhere with only the people I choose to work with. Is this to much to ask?

This is something that I have given a lot of thought over the years, but have not acted on until late 2021. I was always pulled back by friends, family & associates into believing the best path to financial security was education and a J O B ..

"go to school, get good grades & get a good job... work hard and focus on the next promotion! = different job working more hours with less freedom"

You see people putting everything in and getting little in return or worst case, given the boot, been there more then once!. How is this security? How is this being in control? Why is this considered the normal path?

I truly believe that we are ALL capable of more.. Much More!

Currently I'm building my business from the ground up and taking a minimalist approach. I focus all my energy into 2 STEPS that I believe WILL lead to success.. It really is this simple, everything falls into these 2 steps, focus on these in a constant loop, rinse and repeat:

1) LEARN! Invest time in developing your toolbox. Education, training, skill building, constant learning & most important find a mentor. Wealthy Affiliate provides an endless supply of content to develop your core business and an amazing community of like minded internet entrepreneurs.

2) ACT! You must act on what you LEARN! This means START NOW! go and DO the lessons, don't just watch the videos! You can know everything about starting and running an online business but what good is that knowledge if you fail to ACT on what you know? Once you start you will continue to learn new skills or better way of doing something then you make changes to improve what you are already doing. Don't wait for a full toolbox when you just need a hammer to get started now!

Analyze what you need to improve or what problem you need to solve then Learn it and Do it!

Be in this constant cycle of learning new things and integrating them into your business. Over time this WILL lead to success. Over time, your content WILL rank better, your traffic WILL grow and revenue WILL grow! And you will learn how many other things fall into place to compliment what you are already doing.

Continuously Learn > Act With Urgency! > Own Your Future!!

Below are a few of my favorite books about Business, Entrepreneurship & Money that have influenced the direction of my journey, these really can change your mindset:
Tim Ferriss - 4 Hour Work Week
Gary Vee (Vaynerchuk) - Crushing It
Russell Brunson - DOTCOM Secrets (Click Funnels CEO)
Jeff Walker - Launch
Robert Allen - Multiple Streams of Internet Income
Dave Ramsey - Total Money Makeover
Robert Kiyosaki - Rich Dad Poor Dad
Grant Cardone - The 10X Rule

Got a book recommendation? Drop me a comment and I'll check it out!

There was never a time in history better than today to start a new business. All the information and tools you need are right in front of you.

Wish you all the best!
Josh

Helloooo Josh, Love the bio man. May I ask what you brought home from college? 9 years at WA, kool. So looking forward to seeing your work. Merry Christmas from Kentucky Josh.

What I brought home from college? Aside from a piece of paper, College was 2 things for me. First off I obtained a business degree, a credential I originally planned to stack on top of 20 years of IT technical and engineering experience to open the door to leadership and management opportunities. Second and more importantly the experience opened my eyes to the business world and resparked my passion for entrapreneuership which almost entirely negates the desire to pursue my original goal and continue working for someone else's business! .. dreams and goals change, and I believe mine have for the better!

Hi Josh. It's great to meet you here at WA. Your Profile is "exciting" and contains good stuff and advice. I am new in WA having joined this year in October.
I believe if one wants to be successful, he should interact with "seasoned experts and experienced" entrepreneurs. You're one of this fit.

Thank you for connecting and adding me to your network, Josh! Do you have a sixth sense, just asking.

Very good bio with excellent advice!
Is it possible to spend too much time finding a tool, and getting under the hood to fix the engine. I can learn as much as I can but will never be a good mechanic.

I have 'wasted' 3 years getting under the hood to try and fix the engine and are still stuck along the road, so to say, but will start focusing on your advice, it is proven.

You just helped someone today, Josh. I got the right advice and made an informed decision to move forward in life after reading your profile message. It sparks inspiration in me and triggers a lot of actions for anyone wishing to be successful in the online marketing space.

I found myself lacking in many areas, particularly in the area of taking action on what I've learned so far. Thank you so much, my friend! I truly have many skills but yet am suffering for not taking action after learning one skill or the other. I just kept piling up skills without making a fortune from them. I kept acquiring awesome tools without using them to build businesses online. I said all to let you know how much you've helped someone today.
