“I already have a job, I don’t need a part time business”

The title of this post is something that I hear a lot when talking to people about the opportunities that I present. Until now, I have just let that go and bitten my tongue. However, I recently listened to a podcast by Chalene Johnson, and it inspired me to write this post. For those of you that don’t know Chalene, she is actually my favorite trainer for Beachbody fitness programs, and you can find her in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most home fitness workouts. In addition to being a great health and fitness trainer, Chalene also hosts podcast and helps women all over the world to build their businesses and regain their confidence. She does this through her “Build your tribe” podcast, and her Courageous Confidence Club program.

One of her podcasts had Chalene talking about part time businesses, and how she and her husband actually encouraged their employees to have part time businesses on the side. Why? Because steady jobs are not always as steady as they seem. Companies crumble and go bankrupt, sometimes unexpectedly due to unforeseen circumstances. They may suffer a hit and be forced to do some layoffs. You hear of cases from time to time where employees get screwed out of their retirement money for one reason or another. In addition, things change in life! Maybe you decide that you want to start a family, but your full time income doesn’t provide you with enough money to comfortably support and raise a child. Maybe you do have a child, and you decide that you want to quit your job and become a stay at home parent. Whatever the case may be, steady jobs may not be as steady and secure as you think they are.

So why should you have a part time business on the side if you don’t have much time to spend on it? Because that is the beauty of a business that is part time. You can chip away at a part time business bit by bit, and over time, your business will grow. Will it take time and effort? Absolutely – but it is something that can be done at your own pace.

“I’m working full time on my job, and I’m working part time on my fortune” – Jim Rohn

Think of it in the words of Jim Rohn. How would it feel to be able to live off of your full time income, but to have the security of knowing that you also have funds from your part time business tucked away for your fortune. Work full time to support your lifestyle, and allow the money from your part time business to accumulate over time. This could end up being your retirement savings. If you’re like me and you like to travel, this money could send you on trips around the world. If you have children, this money could put your kids through school. No matter what your priorities in life may be, most of us are not millionaires, and we could all benefit from having extra money coming in for added security.

If your next objection to having a part time business is that they are scams or pyramid schemes, then you should jump over to my post on Network Marketing to discover the truth. It is a common misconception that all network marketing businesses are pyramid schemes, and it is time that we set the record straight.

I need your input!

This is why I am content with my two businesses! First I have my regular in-person job for money, and then I make money on the side with my two businesses. My Beachbody business has the health and fitness avenue covered, because I drink my Shakeology daily and get my workouts in from various Beachbody fitness programs! I also have the benefit of being creative through Younique in experimenting with makeup and creating different looks. I absolutely love fooling around with different pigments and trying to create something new!

There is one more passion of mine that isn’t represented here though – TRAVEL! I adore what I do as a Beachbody Coach and a Younique presenter. I get to make money for working out, staying active, and playing with makeup! I joined both of these companies out of love and appreciation for the products, and a desire to share that love and appreciation with others. I had zero intention of joining any other company, but recently I was approached by someone in the travel industry.

I need advice!! I am strongly considering taking the plunge with a travel company to take care of that third passion I have for seeing the world. I have been itching to get back out there ever since I got back from Europe last summer, and the only thing that is stopping me is the money. I now have an opportunity in front of me to earn super cheap rates for travel all over the world, and to make money with the company at the same time as a travel agent.

My question for all of my followers is this: Do you think that I should take a chance on another business to satisfy my travel urges, or do you think that I should stick with what I’ve got? Sound off below on this thread with your opinion!
