18. 3D printing services
Sometimes called “additive manufacturing,” 3D printing is changing the world.
They’ve been hot for a minute, though:
And good news: the vast majority of the world don’t have 3D printers sitting at home. Market is ripe.
Most predictions say the market for 3D printing will reach $16.2 billion by 2018 (1), and you can take a chunk of that by printing 3D blueprints, prototypes, and anything else your customers need. You’ll probably want to start by focusing on one niche, like: 3d printing for dolls, etc.
You can get a decent 3D printer these days for around $3,000 large (2), but be warned: if prices continue to drop and ease of use continues to increase, it may not be long before 3D printers reach critical mass.
I work in my ultra-soft Billionaire Boys Club drawstring shorts most days.
But before you make fun of me for spending $110 on a pair of shorts, adjust your mind a little.
Most business people (attorneys, sales directors) drop “thousands” annually for their work uniforms, why wouldn’t I invest in the comfiest, work-from-home shorts in the world?
Besides, I make more money than most attorneys and I work from anywhere
This post will help you get on that level. The digital economy has been kind to us, and you should be paying attention.
Part 1: ranks the top 25 work from home jobs
Part 2: dives deeper into work from home trends
Without further ramble, here are the top 25 work from home jobs according to your probability of success, projected income and projected growth:
25. Internet or telephone sales
Telephone sales? I know, 1998 called and wants his job back. You’d be surprised. As more companies move away from storefront (car dealerships, in-home care etc), this will only get bigger. With companies offering signing bonuses of $5,000 and annual average earnings at $60K and higher (1), more and more people are jumping on board.
But don’t think talking on the phone all day with a grip of potential customers—some satisfied but most of them pissed—will be easy. Thick skin required.
24. Organization specialist
Minimalism is trending. With hoarders and homemakers in need, professional organizers—or “clutter consultants”—are in demand.
A professional organizer helps people and businesses to reduce clutter and organize space, time, and life. It’s like having a personal trainer for living. They delve into client’s personal lives, possessions, and spaces and help bring the clutter down a notch. And what’s more, organization specialists can bill $90 per hour or more (2).[click to continue…]
Salt Lake Coffee Break. SLC, Utah. Wednesday, 1:13 AM
“Jam sesh?”, the text reads at 6:15 PM. It’s my buddy Dan (far left), and he’s also crazy like me.
There’s a reason why I drive my Tacoma 27 miles to a downtown coffee shop a few times a week. I know exactly what I am getting into every time: 6-8 hours of uninterrupted output, hot yerba mate, a dose of Alpha Brain (my favorite nootropic) and the company of a co-schemer.
He’s my accountability partner, or partner-in-scheme.
And it’s time to do what I do: build digital assets.
Just me and my 3-year-old Macbook Air, mentally-enhanced brain and a coffee shop that reeks of a terrible, low-budget indie film.
And I wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else. It’s my time of peak performance, and it facilitates my 1k daily flow better than any other set of rituals.
Somewhere in Japan, circa 1999. Californication era.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are minutes from taking the stage.
Depressed, broke or frustrated? Go where the fish are.
I’ve followed Ramit Sethi ever since he was on the Tim Ferriss blog back in 2009.
Dude keeps it gangster.
I love his counter-intuitiveness. With his flow of unconventional advice that few have the cajones to deliver, all from 10 years of building and launching successful infoproducts and courses on the internet.
He dropped some gold nuggets to help the broke peeps out there.
His message was loud and clear: go where the fish are.
The analogy, of course, of someone fishing and not catching any fish, and remaining dumbfounded and perplexed until they switched up their location and started fishing in different spots…
…and then the fish coming, a plenty.
Sounds simple enough, right?
The translation, marketing-wise, for your product, brand or content:
Instead of doing the same damned thing, focus on finding out where the loyal, dedicated fans of your content are…
