Today I want to give a quick update on the “Escaping from the Rat Race” report. As you probably remember, this is a guide I’m writing that gives a blueprint on how to leave the 9 the 5 world and work for yourself. Unfortunately, I’ve decided to switch topics and talk about something different. Here’s why…
What Happened Last Week
Last week I was busy as a beaver putting together the outline of this report. I started by leveraging 30,000 words of content from old posts. Then I wrote an outline of what else would be written – Which would have been at least 20,000 extra words.
At this point, I realized I had a major problem. You see, 50,000+ words is practically the size of a full-length information product. It’s been my experience that most people won’t take the time to read something this long. They might skim it. But I don’t want something people will skim. Instead I want to create a guide people will put to use.
Furthermore, I don’t think I’m the right person to create a report on escaping from the rat race. I’ve had very little experience working for a corporation. I honestly forget what it’s like to handle bosses or how to deal with the 9 to 5 drudgery. I could write a great report about avoiding the rat race, but I don’t think this is something most people would want.
Here’s My Decision…
After a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to scrap the idea of the “Escape from the Rat Race.” Instead, I’m going to cover the most important aspect of this concept – How to make enough money to leave the 9 to 5 job. The biggest obstacle to escaping the rat race is being able to afford a new life. While I don’t know much about the corporate world, I can give an honest perspective on what it’s like to earn money from the Internet.
Here’s what I plan on covering:
- The advantages/disadvantages of an online business
- Why writing is the most important skill for Internet marketing
- How to improve your writing while making money at the same time
- The right way to manage an online business
- How to create short-term income that puts money in your pocket … starting this week!
- A blueprint for creating affiliate marketing income within 3 months
- How information products are the key to long-term success with an online business
- Plus…anything else that talks about online income
Overall, I want to make this guide a step-by-step plan for making an Internet income. It won’t be a bunch of theory. Instead it’ll be the same steps that both my brother and I have used to make money. No theory here – Just plain old quality content.
A Great Product for Escaping the Rat Race
I do want to apologize to those people who were anticipating the rat race report. It was hard to make this decision. But I also think it’s a good one because I think I can do a better job with the report I’m currently putting together.
Now, I don’t want to leave you hanging. On Thursday, I picked up a copy of the book, “Escape from Cubicle Nation,” by Pamela Slim. While I’m only halfway through it, I’ve found it gives an accurate portrayal of it’s really like to leave the 9 to 5 world. I just looked on Amazon and the book costs around $7, so you’ll definitely want to check it out.
Finally, I’m still on target to have this report released no later than December 1st. I hope you’ll like it!Take Action. Get Results.
