3 Independent Ways to Make a Living

Does your 9-5 job have you down? These days, it’s becoming common for people to escape the doldrums of office culture and venture out on their own. If you’re ready to join them, here are three ways that might work for you. 

1. Start Day Trading 

You don’t need to be a stockbroker to succeed in day trading, but you do need to know what you’re doing before you jump in. It can be lucrative if done correctly — meaning you have an excellent understanding of money, a solid handle on the stock market and you take it seriously. The only way to know if it would be a good fit is to do some research and evaluate your personal situation, so make sure to cover your bases first.

2. Invest in Real Estate

Getting involved in real estate is another excellent way to earn a living, particularly when you know the ins and outs and are well versed in the market. Having a specific type of real estate in mind is a good place to start. Are you thinking of commercial properties, rental properties or flipping? There are so many outlets in real estate that it can be overwhelming, which is why it’s so important to have a firm grasp on what’s available (and feasible for you) for real estate investing right from the start.

3. Become a Consultant

Have you ever thought about consulting? If there is something you’re really great at doing and you have the credentials and experience to back it up, this could be the ticket to your overall success. Have confidence in your abilities and don’t be shy when it comes to marketing yourself. 

Change can be scary — but it can also lead to greater things. Why not see what else is out there?
