I'm currently a freelancer who's earning 140k $ per year. However i'm working from 9 to 5 for one major client.

How can i use this income to my advantage and double it, triple it, or even quadruple it?

Hint: I do have spare time at my workplace to browse over the internet so i can actually do what i want.

I'm also free after 5 pm and on the weekends. I've been thinking of importing stuff from china, selling on amazon, running a web shop,...

I have 0 experience in that kind of stuff though. And i'm not sure if that's really what i want to do as a side hustle. I want the biggest bang for my buck...

MJ said in his book time is money. So in other words i want to get the most buck out of my time.

So i want to think larger. How can i use the income i have now and double it, triple it, and even quadruple it?

I wish i was a hustling expert with mass of experience.

Can you outsource your work? Get more clients and outsource that work? Also, at $140k/year, what are your expenses? If you keep your expenses low, you can invest a huge chunk of that money into something like real estate and begin building up passive income.

You act like we hurt you. We're just giving you advice. Whether you want it or not that's up to you.

So why are those "not options"? What options do you have?

I had one main client once that I went onsite to. It feels a lot like a job.

Can you get any other clients in the evening, providing the same service as is currently bringing in your $140k/year?

Can you automate any of the tasks associated with your freelancing? Maybe turn it into some kind of SaaS?

Apparently you need to figure out the answer on your own.

I don't understand how you "can not" invest in real estate? Are you spending all $140k? If so, cut your expenses. Live off $40k and invest $100k (yes, I know you have taxes, just giving an example). Your thinking is flawed. You're trying to trade your time for money. Make your money work for you. You CAN double your money in real estate. I'm invested as a passive investor (literally all I've done is analyze the deal and wired the money) in an apartment complex. We're looking to sell late this summer, or early fall, and all passive investors will have doubled their money with the sale (2 years after the purchase).

Look mate you should mind your own business. When i'm telling you i can't, i can't. I know how to run my financial affaires. If you think that is the problem it's not. So stop pushing on the real estate subject and proceed with another option. And FYI i already invested in real estate.

Possibly yeah. But do i want to? Problem is if my day client already feels like a job... Why pick an additional client that will also feel like a job. I would pretty much have 2 jobs and that would end up with a stressful and boring lifestyle. I would prefer working for myself, building a new plan, than to work for someone else.

Yes possible idea that is appealing to me but where do i start? I never did it and have no idea of what items i could dropship. I spend some days browsing on websites like alibaba for some ideas's. Like i said i have a lot of free time during my dayjob. So i could do a lot of stuff on the web.

The best way to gain experience in something that you want to do is to go out and do it. Trading time for money in your case is working pretty well, but you want to take it to the next level. Read my fundamental question thread that's linked in my signature.

After that, figure out what it is you want, a lifestyle business or an enterprise, and then build something that provides value to the customer. The thing is that there isn't any one way you can get the biggest bang for your buck. You just have to try things and solve needs.

Yes i already read your thread. And i must say i answered yes on most of the questions in both lifestyles. So i guess i'm a hybrid person that can do lifestyle and enterprise business.

Dude? You didn't get my last post did you. You are the one who's pushing here. You're the one who wants his last word. Better remove that profile pic and stop smoking if that's the case. Apparently your advice is not helpful and you keep trying. I'm not interested in it. I hope you understand that.

Look man, I was trying to be helpful, and so is everyone else here. I'm not sure what the deal is with your attitude. If you come to a public forum and ask for advice, you're going to get all kinds. If you don't like it, fine, just move on. You don't need to get upset with the person who's just trying to be helpful.

Id invest in self improvement including counseling, and finding a way to balance yourself. You have a get rich quick type of attitude and are not willing to accept you have serious limitations and problem dealing with others that will always keep you down no matter how much your double or triple your money.

You don't get it. Re-read what i said in my posts. You keep pushing and are surprised you get people "upset". I am not upset if that's what you think. You are the one that has to move on.

Where did you come from? I'd invest in your mother.
You need to chill out. All the people in this thread have tried to do is give you suggestions and you've been getting pissed and insulting them. Not a good look dude.

this is what awaits society anyway ( total crash ) but i can't say it here. the audience is not prepared.
the first thing we learn in the psychology of influence is to adapt to the beliefs of the audience. we can't go too far or the audience will reject us. the audience believes everything is fine for ever, so we have to start here and say the same thing.

User is banned for many things: Being a dickhead, an askhole, a forum thief, and god knows what else.

Classic case of a lost soul looking for an exact blueprint... and when people don't offer one that doesn't exist, everyone's an aHole.

Good riddance and good luck with the one-client, nine-to-five bro.

I wish you haven't banned this guy MJ... I think I can help him directly. He is probably a programmer who has steady remote gig and is looking to expand further. I can advise him on how to build upon what he is already doing instead of searching for greener pastures... he shouldn't get in competition in fields where he lacks experience and skills.

Is there any way I can DM him?

No. There's a good reason why he's gone.

And if you have something groundbreaking to tell him, he doesn't deserve to hear it the way he treated people here.

Hello,

I’m a full-stack web developer just starting out and I would love to hear what you have to say if you have the time! Please shoot me a DM if you can, or if you feel inclined to post here as it may help others. Thank you very much.

I'm sucker for helping people ;)

Well... if you @Unleashed see this post, feel free to DM me either here or on Twitter. Programmers are specific and I understand why you thought people here were "not helping" (while they did).

And @MJ - I think that's one thing that was missing from your two books... the social component of succeeding. Then again, you are picture perfect realization of One Man Army concept... unlike Tony Robbins you don't push stuff you haven't lived. What you described in your books is definitely the best OMA approach.

I think I will definitely do postmortem on this thread as soon as I'm done with my obligations for today. Then the rest of you can criticize what I wrote and hopefully we all improve as a result.

<3 my full-stack web developer bro.

You sound like a whiny little bitch. You're well advised to listen to feedback, considering you were dumb enough to tie your entire income stream to a single client.

In the first page of thread all I thought was this guy was competing for ban of the year or something.

He definitely doesn't deserve the wealth of knowledge members will share. He could have stopped but persisted with the arguing.

Advice would have been to start something like the dropshipping instead of looking for an exact blueprint on how to. Not to mention we have enough information in this forum (non-insiders) to write a million guides. Insiders are more like X guides per thread so maybe another million
