You read that right!!! Today I gave my two week’s notice at work!!! They won’t need me after this Friday!!! I’m QUITTING MY DAY JOB!!! WOOT!!! YAY!!! OH HELLS YEAH!!!
*DOING THE HAPPY DANCE*!!! *DOING THE HAPPY DANCE*!!!
Last week, while Mr. BFS and I were in Las Vegas, I was offered a blog manager position that was going to bring in $400 a week. That has since been changed to half that time, so $200 a week and may only last a couple of months, but it doesn’t matter at all. It was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Mr. BFS and I started talking more about where I stand.
Here’s my current situation:
- I wanted the Blogging Income savings account to be at $10,000. It is at $8700 and another $500 is currently in Paypal and will be on the way by the end of the week. I will polish it off with my paid vacation check (I have 7 unused days) from my day job if I need to, but I bet it will be at $10,000 by the end of the month without that help. 🙂
- We wanted to make sure I could be insured through hubby’s health plan. I can.
- I wanted to be making at least $2500 a month consistently and really wanted more than $3000 a month to be on the safe side. I made $5200 last month, more than $3000 on average over the last 4 months, and have already made more than $3000 this month.
And the biggest reason to quit…
- My day job is now hindering my growth. I literally do not have the time to take on much else online unless I quit. So I am quitting my day job.
Even if this blog manager position isn’t long-term, I have already hit my targets and can sustain working from home full time. I also can now take on more advertising clients or staff writing positions through Crystal-For-Hire Blogging Services. As it stood last week, I was allowing myself three more advertising clients and one more staff writing position and that was it or my brain was going to explode. Now I will have the time to expand. I also will be able to put more than a few minutes a week into my eBook and start posting even more at How I Make Money Blogging, which I think is going to be as popular as BFS within the next year. I will have the time to run both of my blogging babies!!!
I’ve also already called Meals on Wheels and will be getting scheduled as a driver once my days open up. 🙂
SO I AM QUITTING PEOPLE!!! GOOD-BYE CUBICLE AND HELLO HOME OFFICE!!!
I have three days to work through before hitting that finish line. Woot, woot!!!
Thank you all for the ton of support I receive from you every day!!!
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 per year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, professional pet sitting, hubby's reffing, and our rental home. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you, PLUS a free custom header banner from me!). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page - I hope they help you too. Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
