Money and spirituality. A winning combination? I think so. Because when you’re truly tapped into your own worth, money becomes easy – a natural flow of life.
This week I’m doing an episode on the podcast with this very title:
How to Make $1,000 an hour or more
For you, maybe money isn’t part of what success really means to you. If that’s true, I completely respect that. There are often many other values that are more important in your life and I get that.
Being happy with what you have is a beautiful thing.
But that doesn’t mean that wanting more financial freedom is wrong… actually it can be very, very right. It means you are serving on a greater scale.
Is there a part of you that believes it is wrong to be wealthy? Wrong to have beautiful things? Wrong to be able to easily pay for kids’ college? Wrong to take luxurious vacations? Wrong to wear nice clothes? Wrong to truly enjoy all of the material things in our material world as spiritual beings? Why do you think ‘lack’ is better? Can you serve more people through wealth or lack?
The secret to wealth as per Tony Robbins is to figure out a way to serve the most people in the best way possible in any given area.
That’s as beautiful a statement about wealth to me as any I’ve heard.
So, how is it possible to earn $1,000 an hour?
In the world of entrepreneurship (particularly online entrepreneurship) there is no income ceiling. There is no boss giving you a 25 cent raise, no manager giving you a 5k annual salary bump, no sales team giving you a 2k bonus. It is all you. And what you offer the world.
And… if you’re trading your time for money (1 hour of work for x number of dollars, or 1 month of salaried work for x numbers of dollars), you’re right. It’s probably crazy to consider making 1k an hour.
But what if you could leverage your skills, your time, your expertise?
What if you could create multiple income streams? Products, services, systems in place for automation, real estate, investments, and on and on…. Ah, then it becomes suddenly possible to scale.
Here’s an example:
I used to sell tea products on Amazon.
Though I still own several Amazon companies, I no longer sell these products. But here’s an example of one revenue stream with tons of revenue potential.
- Sell the tea infusers/products (tea pots, etc.) ($10 – 60)
- Sell the tea people NEED to go with it (provide service/value) ($5 – 50)
- Offer free VALUABLE content through your website (for subscribing, they get a free brewing guide)
- Offer paid courses on tea (Herbal Tea 101, Using Loose Leaf Tea for Your Health, etc.) ($19 – 197)
- Monetize your blog through affiliate sales and advertising ($100 – 1k a month)
- Consider leading an instructional video series, or group for people who want to use tea to improve their health ($59 – $499)
- Sell a monthly e-magazine/newsletter with helpful articles about benefits of tea varieties
- Become an expert in herbal tea remedies and speak to groups ($500 per event)
- Become a health coach and help others to achieve results for well-being ($1k a month)
And the list goes on and on… You are only limited by your own mind. You can create a ladder of services and products that will create more value to others, and more income in your pocket. You simply start with one and build it. It’s much more about a shift in mindset than actual technical skills.
I didn’t know how to do any of that a few years ago. Now I know how to do every single one of those things. It’s not about working harder, it’s about figuring out what you truly want, acknowledging what is possible for you and then working smarter.
Successful millionaires, online entrepreneurs have figured this out.
In your current role (let’s pretend) as a tea sales consultant, maybe you can sell 50 products a month one on one. When you expand your audience by working online, you have the potential to literally reach millions. How can one person reach millions? By putting systems in place and automating processes.
When someone ordered a tea product from me online, they bought it through Amazon. I wasn’t shipping out individual orders from my home! No way. I wanted systems. I wanted time and freedom and flexibility with my family. Yes, Amazon took a percentage for this service. It was worth it!
When you get a business up and running in this way, it should not consume your life.
On the contrary – it should nourish and support your life. With your ‘extra time’ you can then build a second business, begin learning how to invest in stocks or real estate, find other opportunities for another revenue stream. The growth then becomes massive.
