Don’t Be Fooled: ALL Jobs Are Paid By The Hour!
The hourly wage has been big news this year. Most people think of hourly wage earners as burger flippers in fast-food joints, or Starbucks baristas or their kids’ babysitter. “Executives” and other professionals with a yearly salary in the high 5 or even 6 figures think they’re not being paid by the hour.
I have news for them: they’re wrong!! Look at it this way: any person who has to be at a certain place for a certain amount of time (say, 9-5 Monday through Friday?) is being paid by the hour. Someone other than them is controlling their time, their location and how much they earn.
Oh, but we’re talking about much more money in these cases than those low-level jobs. Really? Let’s do the math.
Say a person makes $95,000 a year.
Pretty nice paycheck, most would agree…
Now take out 28% (at least) for taxes.
So now we have $68,400 net.
There are 52 weeks in a year, but let’s imagine this person gets 2 weeks off. So, divided by 50 weeks, that take-home pay yields $1,368 per week.
That equals $273.60 a day.
Which means for an eight-hour day, we’re looking at a take-home of $34.20 per hour.
The minimum wage is up to $15.00 in some states,
So this big shot with the $95,000 salary is getting only about double of someone whose job is to ask “Do you want fries with that?”
But wait, it gets worse! To get a job that pays that well, a person would need a college degree. That can mean tens of thousands in student loan debt.
Is it any wonder that so many hard-working people have little or no savings or investments?
Bottom line: unless a person wants to be a slave to an hourly wage, then a job —even a “good” one — is NOT the path to wealth.
My friend Anik sensed this about 15 years ago. Still in school, he dreamed of not entering the rat race. His goal was to build his own business on the Internet instead.
He jumped in head first.
There was a lot of contradictory information about how to start an online business, some of it downright scams. But he kept at it, scouring online forums and trying every strategy he came across.
After 18 months, he was nearly broke and more confused than ever. He gave himself 24 hours to make some money, or give up and get a job.
Just then, a virtual stranger from one of his online forums reached out. This person explained that Anik had been chasing too many rabbits, and gave him a few simple steps to follow instead.
By the next day, Anik had made his first $300 and his career as an online entrepreneur had officially begun.
It’s a good thing too, because since then, not only has his business made over $120 million, he’s taught and motivated thousands of people all over the world to break free of the dollars-for-hours trap by starting their own online businesses.
Which brings me to his book (I wrote the Foreword!) that I’m thrilled to give away for FREE download:
The book walks readers step-by-step through Anik’s system to create an online business using email (yeah, the same email that billions of people look at all day, every day, myself included!)
He and I are also going to give a free online training where he will demo how to build this business from scratch, in 20 minutes flat! (I’ve seen him do it; it’s amazing.)
