Is Your Job Really the Safety Net You Think It Is?

Busting The Myth of the "Safe Job" And Avoiding The Kill Shot.

Let's get real.

You've probably heard that a steady job is the ultimate safety net, right?

But is it?

Spoiler alert: It's not, and here's my story to prove it.

The Kill Shot

For 17 years, I worked in a cubicle, getting one paycheck from one company that was at the mercy of one boss until she let me go (long story).

Just like that, that ultimate safety net was gone.

Now imagine if that job was my one and only source of income.

Freaky right?

It is what I call the ‘Kill Shot’-

KILL SHOT = losing your one job = F#@K!

“Don't put all your eggs in one basket.”

But you know what saved me?

The Life Saver

My side gigs.

I was constantly building out little side projects.

I had a freelance client and some music-related projects bringing in a few bucks

These side incomes have helped me through my lay-off and are still providing me with paychecks from 10+ income sources to this day.

Not to mention they’ve helped me live a much more interesting life than the one I had sitting in the same cubicle for 17 years.

Why I'm Sharing This With You

Look, I've been down the money-making rabbit hole, testing and trying all sorts of ways to pull in some extra cash.

Each failure?

Let's just say it was a masterclass in what not to do.

But I’ve also hit some home runs and helped friends and clients turn their finances around.

There's nothing that pumps me up more than helping someone write their own "from rags to riches" tale.

So here's my thought:

Why make the same slip-ups I did when you can stand on my shoulders and reach for the stars?

Think of it as skipping the school of hard knocks and going straight to graduation.

That's why I've got an idea for you - a fast way to find some income streams while dodging all the bumps and hurdles I had to jump over.

The Redefining Retirement Game Plan

Here’s the deal.

Every month, I send out an actionable income idea—no fluff, just practical stuff.

You’ll get hands-on advice, a few tried-and-tested resources, and simple exercises to transform you into an opportunity magnet.

And the best part? You can do all this without quitting your job or sacrificing your weekends.

Time's ticking. Ready to rock?

Don't wait for the 'Kill Shot' to realize you need a better plan. Start building some side income and take control.

Dancin’ In The Dark

This song should light up your mind with memories if you were alive in the 80’s.

It certainly does for me.

But I never fully appreciated this song until I started performing it.

For me, it is about the conversation you have in your own head about breaking out of the monotony of life.

I get up in the evenin'

And I ain't got nothin' to say

I come home in the mornin'

I go to bed feelin' the same way

I ain't nothin' but tired

Man, I'm just tired and bored with myself

It’s about a desperate restlessness that burns in your gut when you’re not satisfied with where you are in life.

Messages keeps gettin' clearer

Radio's on and I'm movin' 'round my place

I check my look in the mirror

Wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face

Man, I ain't gettin' nowhere

I'm just livin' in a dump like this

There's somethin' happenin' somewhere

Baby, I just know that there is

Take a listen now and really listen to the lyrics.

If that is what you are feeling, not happy with where you are in life, then it is time to do something about it.

 You can’t start a fire without a spark.

Otherwise, that quiet desperation will never leave. It will eat at you and eventually turn to regret.

Stay on the streets of this town

And they'll be carvin' you up alright

The Game Plan is your spark.

Let’s start a fire,

Corey
