THINGS WILL GET BETTER
No they won’t. That’s what people in abusive relationships tell themselves. Unless some major organizational change is impending, chances are people will stay the same or get worse. Why stay in a miserable relation ship with a terrible job when you can find other sources of income? Think about it, humans are creatures of habit, comfortable in their way of coping with one another and the likelihood of someone changing within an organization are slim to none.
I’VE GIVEN SO MUCH TO THIS COMPANY , I KNOW MY TIME IS COMING!
Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it probably isn’t. You don’t think the guy to your left and the gal to your right don’t feel the exact same way? Well guess what, all three of you aren’t getting that promotion or extra shares in the company. Companies try to squeeze as much work out of their employees as humanly possible. They typically do this in the form of lip service conversations about how valued you are and how they really can’t wait to get you the compensation package you deserve… but you’ll have to wait until that next round of funding, or for x to happen before… their “hands are simply tied”. The truth is, unless you have a pension or some other exit plan/package, you probably aren’t going to get what you really desire.
Lets Be Realistic: we live in a buggy bug world and you need to create the life and revenue stream you desire. You can’t sit around and pray for that next good thing to come your way. Go out and make it come your way. Of course, luck happens, but if you’ve been sitting on the sidelines your whole life, you probably won’t even know what to do with that luck when it does come around.
I MAKE GOOD MONEY
Great, and if you did it once, you’ll do it again. –You see it’s a lot better to leave a job you were making great money at, then to hold onto it for the money. Eventually you’ll get yourself fired because you’ve fallen into a resentful funk and you’re miserable to work with. Take it from me, because that’s literally what happened. No amount of money is worth your happiness, because eventually both will run out. Take care of yourself first, the money will follow.
I LOVE MY CO-WORKERS
Finding an environment where you adore you co-workers can be a beautiful thing. It’s truly magical to bond with these people you spend more hours in a given day with than your own family or friends. Especially as we get older, it can be harder and harder to make adult friends. But that’s no excuse to stay in a job you hate. I loved the majority of my coworkers at two of my jobs ;
Job 1: I loved my co-workers and actually didn’t mind my job. Until I started to burn out from too many other responsibilities. My bad attitude began isolating me from my co-workers, and by the time I was finally let go, our friendships had grown to be more transactional than relational and it was hard to ever find the same footing.
Job 2: I hated my boss, and so did my co-workers. We actually overall loved the company though and bonded over our love/hate relationship with both. Eventually, one by one, people got better offers or blew up on our boss and got themselves fired. The band finally broke up….
I DON’T WANT TO LOSE MY BENEFITS!
No joke, I’ve had friends waiting to quit their jobs until they get married so they can go on a spouse’s plan. The reality is (granted Obamacare is obvi changing) Obamacare’s subsidized plans are actually pretty nice. Obamacare un-subsidized plans are the ones that suck. Chances are, if you’re on unemployment for a while you will likely qualify for a subsidized plan. With that plan you’ll probably pay less for about the same coverage you were getting through your employer.
What to I do next…….
The reality is, there is never a good reason to stay if you hate your job. Life is to short to be miserable because the necessity for money. Now you ask yourself, well what do I do now!? The question is …what do you know about Private Lending & Real Estate Investing.
A private money loan is a loan that is given to a real estate investor, secured by real estate. Private money investors are given a first or second mortgage that secures their legal interest in the property and secures their investment. When we have isolated a home that is well under market value, we give our private lenders an opportunity to fund the purchase and rehab of the home. Through that proves, the lender can yield extremely high interest rates- 4 or 5 times the rates you can get on bank CD’s and other traditional investment plans.
Essentially, private money lending is your opportunity to become the blank, reaping the profits just like a bank would. It’s a great way to generate cash flow and produce a predictable income stream while at the same time, provide excellent security and safety for your principle investment. You can do what the banks have been doing for years…make a profitable return on investments backed by real estate. There is no other investment vehicle like it.
