At a crossroads on my Life Journey
Hey,

I'm currently 27 years old, living in Toronto and have some important decisions to make. I'm currently working as a Full time Uber Driver. I'm looking to become a part time Uber driver and work as a security guard full time. I don't have any post secondary education, I was a music producer for hip hop/rnb since 2010 but stopped last year (industry saturated). I was also deeply into metaphysics/spirituality for a bit... it was a phase. What I aspire to do is start some type of location independant work, and live in Eastern Europe with a Canadian Passport. I decided I don't want to stay in Canada since the cost of living is too high, and how politically correct I have to be on a daily basis. I'm just looking for some input from you guys what you think are some good ideas for location independent work based on my experiences/situation. I was thinking maybe write a book on metaphysics/spirituality but that field is saturated as well, start a youtube channel, pick up a new skill , and etc. Interms of Income goals im happy with a healthy 5 figure income then i'm looking to work my way up from there. I'm not getting any younger so I want to get started as soon as possible.


Thanks,

RE: At a crossroads on my Life Journey
Sounds like you don't really have any portable valuable skills.

I would recommend reading some of the location independent threads in this subforum and see what others are doing and what seems most appealing to you and start working at it. I would not bank on writing or youtubing as your cash cow... entertainment-based careers are a huge gamble and can take a long time to turn really profitable. You are better off building marketable skills you can transport internationally or saving up money where you live currently and investing so your assets can money for you. Just my $.02

Agree with Stalin. Need some skills.

You can use 'gaming' techniques to go meet new guys (especially who're starting a company) and work under them. General jobs like marketing or PR can be done by anyone with decent experience.

I honestly think social game is the only way to go.

OP, how many mental masturbation threads are you going to start?

Have you even booked a scout trip to Eastern Europe yet?

lol, I don't have the resources for a scout trip to Eastern Europe but I might do that in the near future. I will be here for atleast a few years but your right. I should have a scout trip eventually before I decide to leave permanently.

RE: At a crossroads on my Life Journey
Get your location independent business running while you're still in Canada.

Sometimes I feel like some people here who've never been to (Eastern) Europe think it's some sort of paradise where life is dirt cheap and beautiful women flock to you because you're a foreigner. Don't get me wrong, it is a good, refreshing place for a strong Western man, but there are certain obstacles you have to overcome if you want to move here for good AND feel good here. Right now is the right time for you to make a plan - start learning a new language and building your business.

Skills can be acquired.

The tough part is the un-doing of 27 years of habits and brainwashing.

On one hand you say you want to get a job in security and do uber part time, and a second later you say you want location independence. Yet your plans couldn't be further from location independence, therefore you are creating a divide between your stated desires to yourself and your actions. Unifying those two is what is called, and in one respect is an element of, INTEGRITY.

If you do want location independence then start selling things, don't waste time on security job search, and get rid of your car.

Also I suspect you haven't done any real math. Uber is a platform to SELL the use of your car, its depreciation, wear and tear and fuel etc., for LESS than the cost or value of the miles driven. Your drive work and time are FREE.

You are going to have to be honest with yourself. I suggest Looking Out for Number 1 by Robert Ringer as a start.

RE: At a crossroads on my Life Journey
Funny... The main reason I want to do Uber Part Time is because of the wear and tear. Uber part time is definately alot better and actually worth it. I can cover my expenses, pay less taxes, and still make some decent money. The reason I want to start working full time as a security guard is because I get free time which I can leverage for my personal pursuits. I have some great ideas which I have been brainstorming and finally figured it out. I was looking for some decent input but i'm good. Thinks are progressing for me.

Your wrong about that. Uber is a excellent networking platform. Having conversations with my passengers i learn so much. It's great for meeting different kinds of people. Having a group of women in your car and just listening to there conversations is great for game as well. Like i heard womeb talking about tinder anyguy that has a selfie in profile pick they decline.

^ it is as if you forgot your original posts and its content entirely.

Enjoy Ubering, you are not at a crossroads except where to turn for the next pool pickup. You don't have to think about it, the app will tell you what to do.
