I have been amazed how many people are finding newfound success just by “switching”. No, I am not talking about people that move from PC’s to Macintosh. I am talking about people who are leaving their current niches and expanding or moving into other cash flows. They think their old horse is lacking luster, and the new one must be taking horse supplements (try buying them here) or something. Typically people are considering completely new cash flows for one of two reasons.
One, they never got to the level of success they hopped for with their current niche. Often this is due to picking a cash flow that is too small or one that does not fit their personality.
Two, it is just time for a change. I will be the first one to admit that some things we like to stay the same and some things we need change. I find work to be one of the latter. We need to be challenged, excel, and feel accomplishment. Certainly this is not done at the risk of missing a needed paycheck, but sometimes we need change.
I noticed not long after the Cash Flow Convention in Dallas this year people walked away with new ideas and the courage to embrace some newer cash flows. One such area is the relatively new pre-settlement lawsuit financing industry, which seems to be paying off big for many consultants. You may want to consider learning something new this summer. You may find something else to add to your income capabilities – or even a whole new focus. In either case, it will be fun.
