Corporate Career By Day, Online Business By Night

I work in the corporate world by day and by night (and weekends)  I run my part-time online home business.

Most people dream of being an entrepreneur and running their own successful business.  This is the foundation of the American Dream after all.  

Believe it or not…my goal is to not quit my day job.

I enjoy working in corporate America very much, maybe because I have been doing it for so long.  I thrive on my daytime routine and my relationships with friends and colleagues. I like the feeling of being successful at my day job and reaping the kudos of being a go-getter on my team.  And not to be bragging but, my company is very profitable and I receive very lucrative bonuses that I am not willing to give up. My regular paycheck also helps keep me worry-free. And last but not least, I do not want to sacrifice my daytime career that I have put blood, sweat and tears into for years, especially now.

I do get a lot of reward and benefit from the corporate world even if it is time consuming.

Although the time requirement may hinder my online business growth from my hands on or direct contributions, the money that I bring home, allows me to grow my business in other very important ways.

Bootstrapping a part-time tech business

Bootstrapping my part-time tech business – bootstrapping means to self fund your business.

  • Growth is going to be slower because of limited funds, accept that growth could be slower and take years.
  • Retained earnings from profits, all retained earnings can go towards growth until your business becomes more efficient.
  • Return on investment – It forces you to stay lean and make critical choices about how you spend and decide where your money goes.
  • Owner has 100% equity in the company

I do not need a start up backer, I am my own start up backer.  I do not have to share my business plan with anyone.  And my ideas are my ideas, however good or bad.  And yes, those bad ideas are good, because they are actually a spring board to learning from mistakes and adapting.

To make money, it takes money

I can afford to pay for things that other online business’ can’t afford when they are first starting out, such as:

Writers-they are available for research and writing of relevant articles that target my niche’s keywords.

Advertisements – the purpose in advertising is to get my brand in front of as many eyes and into the memories of as many potential current and/or future customers as possible.

Product designers & Engineers – develop and prototype products and projects

Website Designers – to make improvements on my websites and design applications that are relevant to my brand.

Future of My Smart Lifestyle –

Future New products-prototypes and samples- research, development and production of Amazon FBA products with smart features.  This is the backbone and future of my business plan.

Benefits of a part-time home business

Business growth can be slower, without the business going bankrupt.  It takes years for some tech businesses to get off the ground.  The website needs time to rank.

My at home online business opens up my creativity and lets me roll with my passions.  When I am writing or speaking about my passions, I get in the zone and get out of my own head and into my special intellectual and creative space.

My measure of great success is to have my daytime career and also have a passive income stream that is producing wealth behind the scenes, whether I am at work, at home and even sleeping.  My online business does take a lot of work and time and it is by no means easy but it is doable.

I am not looking to become an overnight multi-millionaire, although that would be nice. I do believe however, that with consistent dedication and effort, I can bring in a substantial amount of money and other financial benefits from sponsors that will improve my life immensely.

Why So Many Want To Become Americans

Why so many want to become Americans is why so many Americans want to keep it for themselves.

1. America the Beautiful  – We have national parks, state parks, county parks and city parks across this country for all to enjoy. And boundless land in open spaces, some privately owned and some publicly owned.

North Carolina

Yes, there are other places in the world that are just as beautiful, however we want to keep as much of our land and our country uninhabited and preserved forever for ourselves.  I am sure the Cherokee Nation felt the same about North Carolina, ironically.

Not America

Okay so I have to admit that before our industry went to China there were places in America circa 1978 that looked like China does now.  It took us a while to get the huge chemical mess cleaned up, and for the love of all things good, please keep it that way.

2. Employment – We appreciate hard work and yes the American dream is alive, well and rockin’ again.  You can work your way to the top of most corporations if you are intelligent and a hard working employee no matter your race, religion, sex or whether or not you bribed someone with sex and/or financial favors. (well maybe not in New Jersey, JK:)

Unfortunately it took decades to get us to where we are now in terms of diversity. More diversity is good to a point and we have just recently become “more” balanced in this respect, however when does the balance shift and we topple over in a different direction towards discrimination of white men?

3. Educational Opportunities – Again if you are a hard worker and apply yourself, your chances of getting a decent education are pretty good in the United States irregardless of anything other than being a human being of course.  Sorry Charlie.

We Americans do like competition, but we also like to educate ourselves and our children first and foremost.

4. Lack of Corruption – Rule of law.  Yes, I know we have our problems with rogue cops, but for the most part, if you are a good, law abiding citizen, you can stay out of trouble and remain relatively safe from harm.  And extortion is very rare in most of the US, although cyber extortion from overseas is becoming a reality.  And although the current political environment seems rather dysfunctional, overall we have a very corruption free governmental system with every citizen having equal voting rights and powers.  The exception is huge corporations who sway certain policies for financial gain with cold hard American dollar bills.

5. Women are Free to Dress however they want and it’s nobody’s business – especially on Halloween. Contrary to popular belief all young American women do not dress like sluts on Halloween, they also dress like Disney Princesses and Scuba Divers.

Speaking of dressing up

The fear of having to ever put on a burka under the force of a man or Sharia law scares me shitless.  Under my own decision however the choice should be available. So if you prefer wearing a burka because you don’t want your beauty to be admired by ogling males, then by all means, do you,  Miss Thing.

6. Which leads me to my all time favorite – Freedom of religion and especially freedom from religion aka separation of church and state.  I don’t want to be forced to hear and especially believe your superstitions just as much as you don’t want to be forced to listen to L Ron Hubbard Scientology audio books read by Tom Cruise.

Please keep your kooky religious beliefs where they belong at your altar behind your closed door.   On a side note, I have to admit that I have had a crush on Kooky Tom Cruise since his Risky Business days.

7. Amazing Infrastructure – the highway system’s engineering and architecture is just that – amazing from sea to shining sea.

And there are many other reasons, I am just too tired to remember them.
