Skellie is a solid writer with great content, over at AnyWired she has created a series of posts titled A Practical Guide to Earning Six Figures.
The first post is Changing Your Mind and I love the post intro:
How to have the freedom and flexibility to live the life you want.
This first post covers ‘Deconstructing six figures’ and ‘Why a six figure target?’ creating a foundation for the goal and the other posts.
The second post is Reboot Your Career and deals with switching career:
If you’re not overly attached to your current job and would be willing to switch it for something better, this route is for you. Some of the things that prevent us from pursuing new and better jobs really don’t matter as much as you think.
The third post is Re-inventing What You Have, published June 30. This post is about how you can earn six figures by supplementing your current work, or by replacing it with a non-freelance alternative.
For me earning six figures is not an important goal in itself. I am following my passion, Key Coaching, money comes second. I use the concept from the third post, employee part time and then working on my coaching business on the side. Long term goal is that I shall grow my coaching business big enough to be able to drop my current work.
Over at Freelance Folders is a related post, At what point is it acceptable to say, “I’m an expert in my field”? At what point can you confidently charge $100 an hour?
