During the past years, many people addressed the issue of slavery in the new era, employee servitude to employers, and many of these propositions touch the reality greatly. They are stimulated in a way that pushes every employee to reconsider his existence.
There is no doubt that the reality of the employees of our region (the Middle East and the Arab countries) is not ideal, nor even close in any way to it, except for a few exceptions.
The owners of this proposition (employee slavery) offer free business or private enterprise as a workable and practical solution that will take the employee out of an unfortunate reality and put him on the path of financial freedom.
In this article, I will take a personal approach and view on this topic.
Financial freedom can be seen as the ability of an individual to enjoy the lifestyle he desires without waiting for periodic (monthly) payments or the so-called salary from an employer.
Many content makers, articles, and sources have addressed this topic and ways to achieve financial freedom, moving from work for others to working for yourself and enjoying higher income and comfort. You can search for many of these sources and videos that explain personal experiences to owners — these projects.
The most important aspects of studying before moving on to your project:
Having an idea: This idea should be centred on your passion for a topic that will be interesting for you to practice and for long periods without expectation of return or return.
Availability of time: Moving to your project will cost you a lot of time and effort, especially during the foundation period. When studying your project, you should be aware of the amount of time you will allocate weekly to this project, especially if you will start this project without leaving your current job or job.
Continuity: This point is the cemetery of new and emerging projects. This personal and unique project, which depends mainly on the project owner, needs a great deal of time before its revenues begin to flow and then growth, so if you are one of the older adults who are waiting to achieve Quick profit, you will be shocked and frustrated in the first period. In many stations, you will be disappointed and feel a kind of emptiness and uselessness in the effort exerted, and you may decide to surrender and withdraw.
Time management: If you are a messy person and unable to organize your affairs, it is likely that your project will falter, at best you will achieve fewer results and more slowly than if you were a person who can manage his time and organize his tasks, especially since you are in this type of work you will be the employer of yourself There are no hours that restrict you, and no supervisor checks your work periodically.
The essential points to bear in mind and concepts to correct:
In self-employment, be proficient in what you do and even take on a professional. If you want to rely on self-employment as a source of income and freedom, you must be a professional and a competitor to professionals. You can start before professionalism, but you must set a specific program to grow your business, develop your talent, and move it to the level of professionalism and during a timetable to be able to rely on this work as a source of income.
You are not restricted to working hours and working hours, but you are limited to a delivery schedule for your clients or followers. If you are unable to complete your tasks promptly, you will lose your clients or followers, and this may require you to spend double hours than the traditional job hours without additional compensation, so The important thing is that you enjoy what you do.
Life is not rosy as you imagine, so do not expect, for example, if you created the first online store that customers will be waiting for you, or if you create your blog that readers will eagerly wait for your next blog, on the contrary, you may spend the first six months or the first year while trying to tell the world that you exist!
You transfer your passion from hobby to professionalism and therefore your project (if your goal is to achieve financial freedom) cannot be secondary to you, you must devote all your effort to it, but there is no objection that it is in the period of foundation and testing until you are sure that this path that you want to take it is for this project to occupy the post-employment period of your current job. Still, at some point, you will have to choose between your project and your career.
Expect to spend the first six months without income, and the next will be fragile income, so if you have financial obligations, you are advised to be financially satisfied for a full year or at least six months.
In self-employment, growth is exponential. If you work with all your determination, the first period will be the most difficult. Still, you will reach a specific point where you start to grow significantly; it depends on the continuity, seriousness and quality.
This topic cannot be covered with one article or one blog. There are many blogs and YouTube channels that only deal with this topic and achieve fictional profits, but through my follow-up on many of these projects, especially for content makers, I liked to share with you the points that I mentioned.
