01 Feb How I Quit My Welding Job, Built a Kindle Publishing Business and Started Living Like Indiana Jones…
I still remember the job interview in 2003. I had no idea what I was getting into…
Who knew I’d still be there over 10 years later.
I definitely didn’t think I would be…
I thought I’d have my own business or something. Something that would allow me to travel and wake up and just do the stuff I love.
But I wasn’t.
I was stuck in a hot ass shed, wearing a giant layer of clothes, leather vests, gloves, a gas mask and helmet, welding for 9 hours a day…
And you can just imagine what this was like in summer. It was HOT.
Once I’d been there for 10 years I took my long service money and got the heck out of there. I wanted to travel the world.
And I did…
I traveled to South East Asia and did some crazy cool s#%t.
I bungee jumped naked in Thailand…
I trekked to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal…
I hiked the most dangerous path in the world in China…
Plus a ton of other cool things…
BUT after 6 months I had to go home. I’d run out of money.
Worse of all I had to go back to welding.
But something amazing happened only a few months later…
I discovered Kindle Publishing. Where you create little books and sell them on Amazon.
I loved the idea of this, making book sales while I slept and having an actual business.
The crazy thing that I couldn’t believe is that a guy like me; a welder, could actually do this.
I had other people writing the books for me (called Ghostwriters), I learned how to rank books on Amazon, how to make amazing book covers and how to scale the whole thing.
But long story short, over a 6 month period I was able to build up an income, while working on this in my spare time and still working at my welding job.
My first month I still remember the first cheque I got.
It was for $280.
To say my life changed at this point was an understatement…
The next month I made over $500. The next over $1000.
Before I knew it, within 6 months I was making over $5,000 a month which was the same as what I was making in my welding job.
I didn’t need much persuasion to keep going and build the business up.
Several months after this I was able to quit my job.
Little old me was able to get himself out of the damn rat race…
This was of course a MASSIVE dream come true.
I’d finally done it. I had a business. I had time.
I could finally start living life on my terms.
I could start going on adventures and still make money. I could travel the world again!
And that’s how I started this whole crazy life…
Now I teach people how to do the same thing I did.
How to build kindle publishing businesses that support your lifestyle and can be run from anywhere in the world.
So you can travel, have more adventures or spend more time with the people you care about.
Kindle publishing changed my life. It can change yours to.
And now I’m showing you how to do this in my FREE Job Freedom Game Plan class below.
I show you exactly how I (a welder) was able to do this.
How I find the right kind of books to publish. How to get someone else to write your books. How to actually build a business out of this that someone else runs, and how to use it to fund your freedom lifestyle.
And how you can COPY EVERYTHING I’ve done.
