For years now, we’ve been telling folks how it really is a crazy and unfair world out there…
On one hand, there are people who bust their butts working year after year… slaving away for bosses and managers who don’t appreciate them… to earn a paycheck that does little more than pay the bills.
But then on the other hand, there are those who seem to have found a better way.
I’m talking about people who live life on their own terms.
They’re people who have all the money they need, yet they seem to work when they want to… where they want to… for whom they want to. What’s more, they have all the free time in the world to travel… to spend with their kids… to lower their golf scores… to really enjoy life.
For these people, the idea of hourly wages, annual cost of living raises, and having to “be at your desk by 8 a.m.” are as foreign as the workaday world they left behind.
In this world, it’s not unusual to have a shiny new car (or two) in the driveway every year…
To take exotic trips to faraway places several times a year (often for free… )
To be strolling on some ocean shore or tossing a ball with the kids while most people are slaving away in some ever-shrinking cubicle or driving to their next sales call. (Of course, that’s IF they’re lucky to be working at all.)
These folks live in a different world. A world where money and time have a different meaning – and there are plenty of both to go around…
Where you can go to the mall and buy that $2,500 necklace for your wife on a whim…
Where you can afford to help your son or daughter buy the newer car loaded with the latest safety features, instead of that older model that could break down anywhere.
Where the biggest problem about doing a home renovation or adding a pool is not affording it – but finding the best people to do it.
You may know some of these people.
And my guess is… you’d like to be just like them.
Now you can.
In fact, I know you can. I’m living proof of it.
It wasn’t long ago that I was struggling to earn a living… jumping from one job I hated to another I hated more… never making more than $30,000. (In my last job, I was making $6.50 an hour – $13,520 a year – stocking cans in a grocery store!)
But then I discovered something that changed my life…
I learned the simple secrets to writing the kind of letter you’re reading right now.
No Bosses, No Commute
Now I “work” a few hours a day. I write one, maybe two letters a month.
About a decade ago, my family and I moved from crowded and too-hot-for-me Florida to a little historic town in the Vermont countryside.
Recently we decided to split our time – between a cottage on Lake Champlain…
And a Penthouse apartment in downtown Toronto, the town where I’m from.
Country, lake and city life… It’s the best of all worlds.
Best of all I have no bosses, no commute.
I write from an extra room I set up in each home. Some days, I’ll head to the little writing studio I decided to rent in the heart of town, just for a change of scenery.
For a break, I’ll take the kayak out for a “spin” on the lake … grab a coffee at the local market… or take our two Samoyed dogs, Yukon and Betty, out for a run.
I absolutely love the freedom of it!
My neighbors think I’ve taken early retirement – probably because they never see me working.
In many ways, I have retired. Because, for the first time in my life, I decide how my days will be spent. Some days, I’ll feel like working for a few hours (typically in the morning). Other days, I’ll play some golf, have lunch in a city cafe … or just hang out with my teenage son.
But what surprises people most (and may surprise you, too) is the income my “retirement” lifestyle gives me: around $400,000 a year.
And I’m not kidding you or pulling any punches here…
It all stems from my ability to sit down and write (some would say “rattle off”) a simple letter like the one you’re reading now.
If I really wanted to, I could make a lot more. Some people I know who’ve learned this skill are making $500,000… even $1 million a year. (You’ll meet a few of them in a minute… many are friends of mine.)
Here’s the thing, though…
Anyone who likes to write can learn the same skill that lets us earn a very comfortable six-figure income from home, year after year.
It’s a skill that –– once you have it –– will put your financial destiny squarely in your own hands, for as long as you want to use it.
You’ll be in constant demand.
You’ll never be wanting for work or money, no matter what state the economy is in.
It’s something you’ll be proud to mention to your friends and people you meet. (Believe me, people will be very intrigued when you tell them what you do. They’ll want to know all about it.)
Along the way, you’ll learn much about yourself, about business, and about the world around you.
And depending on who your clients are, you’ll get some nice perks as well. I’ve been on dozens of trips over the years – Barbados, France, Spain, and beautiful five-star resorts throughout Canada and the States.
My most favorite work trip was a seven-day cruise aboard a Crystal Cruise ship, the “Ritz-Carlton” of cruise ship travel.
And since I actually was “working” on these trips, I paid for none of them.
