I came across this story the other day about a woman who was arrested for defecating on her boss’ desk after she found out she won the lottery.

Don’t lie… you’ve thought about it! 🙂

I had to look this up to see if it was true. Turns out, it wasn’t… dangit! I’m actually shocked it wasn’t. I mean… who hasn’t thought of making an “epic” exit to their day job. I know I used to.

Thing is…

You don’t need to win the lottery.

Or put another way, you already have the winning lottery ticket. Yeah, yeah… sounds cliche but it’s true in this case.

Think about it…

What do you think the world will look like ten years from now? 20? 30? Consider what it looked like just ten years AGO. Or 20. Or 30.

Nobody then could have fathomed the world we live in now.

Technology, whether we like it or not, is the future. The internet, whether we like it or not, is the future. YOU, whether you like it or not, are the future.

The skillset you’re chasing is the bedrock of what’s to come.

You shouldn’t forget that.

And, you shouldn’t sell yourself short. I’m not going to tell you what to do with your life but I do think it’d be a bit of a waste for you to spend your time and talent making some else wealthy and successful.

That’s why I’m such a big proponent of freelancing.

Because YOU control your own destiny.

YOU decide what you make.

YOU decide when you work and on what.

And, you make yourself wealthy.

And look… it doesn’t matter if you’ve tried it and didn’t have success. Just like learning how to code, it takes a minute. And, there’s plenty of non-developer “gurus” out there giving bunk advice.

Advice that doesn’t work for developers.

And, they wouldn’t know because they’re not developers.

It’s not your fault if you’ve listened to them and struggled. They make a good case… until you actually try what they advise. Then, it all comes crashing down.

Anyway, I want to help.

That’s why I recorded a full 40-minute (ish) video on what to do to get started AND have success as a freelance developer.

It’s how you can start building your own little empire.

And, you can get it as supporting listener of the John Morris Show on Patreon. I’m putting the final touches on the editing and will be uploading it soon so be sure to jump in right away.
