So I think most people already know the 9-5 job – the rat race some people might call it. I heard it on Youtube – escape the rat race, build your own paradise, build your own business, become entrepreneur but I think there’s nothing wrong with both works.
You just have to hear your intuition if you really love what you are doing then keep doing it.
Working on a 9-5 job is not something you should be ashamed of. You can hear a lot of people say – “I want to become an entrepreneur but I don’t have that capital and experiences”. Then working on a 9-5 job might be helpful when starting out.
So if you want to gain more capital in your ideal business or you love your job but you need more money. Here me out there is something I would like to say.
HOW TO BE RICH WHILE WORKING ON A 9-5 JOB
I would give you 3 things to implement in your job immediately if you want to be rich and have fun to work on 9 to 5 job
1. Dominate in Your Job – It is not just about doing a good job but it’s doing a greater job. You must be great in connecting and collaborating with people in your work.
Learn new skills proactively, and contribute more to achieve the mission of the company. Have fun and excel in your workplace. Be a Leader and be a customer-oriented person.
2. Sell Something – I know someone who does great in their job and during the work he sells a home-made sandwich. after that job, he would buy and sell Nike and Jordan shoes online. After a month of doing that he has a 10x profit in his job.
You can also do this but sell something that you are familiar with or somewhat expert of. If you want to make money while doing other things like sleeping find a way to make a passive income.
The most popular way used by influencers is Affiliate Marketing. There are tons of affiliate product just type in google “Product X Affiliate”.
3. Invest – in 2007 there is a financial crisis – prices tend to go down on stocks. There is this one man, who has interest in investing this man has 100 dollars on his hand and he tried to invest it on a fast-food chain, Jollibee. Fast forward 2013, his 100 dollars turned to 40k in just span of 6 years. What can your $100 dollars do? would you spend it?
If you are familiar with cryptocurrency (i.g. Bitcoin). Unlike stocks, you can generate your $100 and make it to $40k in just 1 year. You can start investing in that but cope up with the news so you know what is happening. If the price is cheap, try now to invest and hold that for a year. Another tactic is you can trade. you buy cheap prices then sell at high.

Well we can’t say when will the price will go up or down or it will crash into $0. Although people would second guess about crypto. This cryptocurrency is not done yet.
If this cryptocurrency is mass adopted let see where your money goes, but for now, we had more opportunity to buy more because of the cheap price.
Lastly, you can invest in learning skills. It’s definitely worth it! You can get knowledge and skills from an expert with a cheap amount you can buy courses for $10 but the return on investment can be big as million dollars! that is why rich people want to read faster and learn more.
Plan Your Budget Monthly
Why do you budget your money monthly? most job pays twice a month and you can probably predict what can happen during that month. You can plan your daily spending but I like to add the days into months so it would be easy to organize.
Planning your budget for the whole month can make you more disciplined with how you spend your money. Two persons working on a 9-5 job; one plan monthly he budgets his money according to travel and leisure, learning, investment and daily needs like food and water. The other doesn’t have the idea where to spend his money.
People are wired to wanting more!! so if he sees the new phone coming out he would buy it because he has the money. Is he disciplined? No, because he did not plan his money right. Now he’s broke wishing to get a high paying job.
I believe in you. You can be disciplined like millionaires and you can be one of them. Now here you can take the idea on how to budget your money monthly.
you can customize the percentage depending on your circumstance. maybe you live with your parents that can save rent and food then you can put more into business or pocket money for travel.
Plan for Your Business
“But I don’t want to create my own business I just want to stay on my 9-5 job”. Do you want to be rich right? you just can be rich without a business, without creating your own product. Will it be hard? Yes, it will be hard. But let see what’s your advantage right now working on a 9-5 job while following the other advice.
- You got connections
- expert of something for learning monthly
- know how to budget
- You know how to plan
so should I quit my job? you don’t even have to quit your job right away. You can work for 9 to 5 job and work on your business 7 to 2 in the morning. will you get tired? yes! Push it. You must embody hard work. You must be HARD WORK. work on your 9-5 job then you work on your passion at 7 pm to 2 in the morning.
