How can you make good money without having a 9 to 5 hours?

Find what people with money need and give it to them.

To make money without going through the 9 to 5 hours, you need to think outside the box.

Society is full of brilliant people waiting for someone to tell them what to do. That's what universities are for: teaching people how to think, how to behave, and how to follow the rules.

Entrepreneurs think differently. They don't sit around waiting for someone to tell them what to do; They go out and find it.

This is not a gibberish theory where entrepreneurs have a "third eye" or a "knack" for making money. Not that they have a specification

Find what people with money need and give it to them.

To make money without going through the 9 to 5 hours, you need to think outside the box.

Society is full of brilliant people waiting for someone to tell them what to do. That's what universities are for: teaching people how to think, how to behave, and how to follow the rules.

Entrepreneurs think differently. They don't sit around waiting for someone to tell them what to do; They go out and find it.

This is not a gibberish theory where entrepreneurs have a "third eye" or a "knack" for making money. It is not that they have a specific trait that others do not have.

They just go where the money is.

I can sit down and write 100 different ideas that you can earn money with without a job.

Hell, a lot of people have done it before:

  • 80+ great ways to earn extra money
  • 50 Small Businesses You Can Start On Your Own
  • 35 Ways To Make Money (For Teens In 2018)

(Note: none of these items are mine.)

If you want an idea, you have it.

But that is not the point. You don't need an idea. You don't need connections. You don't even need money to get started.

You just need to find a problem worth solving.

Entrepreneurs call it "idea validation." Marketers call it "market research." I just call it "getting your feet on the ground."

Once you stop thinking that making money requires a specific mindset, skill, or secret knowledge that you lack and focus on starting to find a problem that someone else is willing to pay to solve, you will earn good money.

Forget the 9 to 5 hours and start looking for expensive problems. The money is waiting for you.

One way to do this is by trading for yourself. I know of a trader who trades energy futures from his laptop quite profitably. I don't know the exact figure, but based on your standard of living, you probably earn at least six figures a year. You do a few trades at most a day, so technically you work 5 to 10 minutes a day at most. So that sounds too good to be true, right? Here are the caveats.

  2. I'm sure you spend a considerable amount of time assimilating information / researching. So even though you can only trade for a few minutes a day, you work many more hours.
  3. Although you are an expert trader, I am sure you have significant variance in your earnings (energy is a very volatile market). After 12 years of operations, I am sure you accept the variance as part of your job. However, I'm not sure if everyone is comfortable with that level of income uncertainty.
  4. Chances are you are thinking about your trades all the time. So even though you can keep your own hours, your job can end up being tiring.
