Can you double your take-home pay in 12 months?

April 17th, 2009 · 1 Comment

We’re having the most severe economic downturn since World War II. Everyone is trying to hold onto their jobs. Many companies have suspended merit-based pay raises and bonuses. If you want to increase your take-home pay, you will have to do it on your own.

Let me challenge you: assume you’ll hold onto your current job for the next 12 months, can you double your take-home pay in 12 months by your own effort?

If you have always dreamed to be an entrepreneur, this will test your ability to generate cash flow in a short period of time.

If you’re concerned about your job security, this will challenge you to generate a second source of income and protect you from layoffs.

If you’re tired of your current job/career/work environment, this will challenge you to create a viable source of income and a job for yourself.

Write down the total amount of take-home pay for the next 12 months. Your goal is to double that amount by working on your own side projects.

Is anyone up to challenge?
