As the new year of 2017 begins, we take a look at ourselves in the mirror and ask ‘What are my goals?’ and oftentimes this comes down to your career path, lifestyle or job choice. When a change in career can change your lifestyle completely why not explore your options to financial independence?
Financially Independent Career Options
Being your own boss means being financially independent, yes, but there are many ways you can free yourself this year towards bigger and bolder goals/paychecks more immediately, if what you ultimately seek is a new financially independent career choice.
There are many reasons why people want to be their best financially. Some of us are seeking an upgrade to our lifestyle and some are simply trying to get their head back above water. That is, debt and financial freedom from loans and credit cards.
You have many options and choices to look at, whether you’re the type of person that craves being in control of your income stream, or the ability to invest in larger entrepreneurial endeavors.
Principle Reason to Become Financially Independent
Debt affects American people at an alarming rate. It’s really no wonder, if you are just about anywhere in the U.S., that you would really want to seek a financially independent career. Or at least a salary that can help afford to pay off loans and debt. You’re lucky if you’re a part of the 20 percent of adult Americans whom aren’t in any form of debt. Mortgages, student loans, credit cards, and other loans all add up to a huge debt problem facing Americans.
Simply, the shrinking middle class is finding it pretty difficult to maintain lifestyle expectations like they once could once going through school and student loans, mortgage loans, and higher insurance premiums and rates than ever.
Seeking financial independence can help overcome these obstacles, or at the very least minimize them.
Overcoming with Financially Independent Career Choices
Instead of succumbing to the debt you find yourself in, find a way to dig yourself out by applying skills or changing careers. It might take risks, but you could obtain a lot more peace of mind in your life so much quicker.
Some career choices are perfect for those who are paying off student loan debt and need a financially independent career for that reason, because there are actually some career choices that offer you loan forgiveness programs. These financially independent career choices include:
- Public Service Careers & Positions
- Federal Agency Careers & Positions
- Doctors & Medical Careers
- Lawyers & Law Careers
- Teachers & Educational Careers
- And many others…
Volunteer Positions like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps
You can find financial independence through the right career path. Sometimes when it comes to debt, looking at the numbers behind your goals is an obvious start of course. But figuring if you should try to climb the ladder within your current field to obtain a raise can be soul crushing.
Volunteer opportunities can help delay debt while also building a strong portfolio and giving you an awesome opportunity. It takes a very special kind of person to sign up with these, but they can definitely be worth the effort.
Financially Independent Through Ingenious Innovation
I have a weak spot for this one. We’re talking, of course, about entrepreneurial activities. You can get a more detailed view of what I am thinking about in this article.
I believe that the best solution to finding the right position is to make it yourself. Focus on where the market is at, or if you are thick-spirited – make a market for something yourself.
Sadly, this is also the category I can’t personally help you with besides giving you some ideas. Which you can read some here to hopefully spark your creative side. But I can’t give you a money-making idea up front.
Take your skills, or your interests, and find a way to monetize it. Whether it be through website, services, or investments – that part is up to you.
If you find something (or you’re already working toward something) – drop me a line in the comments. I’d love to hear about it!
