Do you think that being a school drop out is the end of the path to a successful and meaningful life? Let me tell you some things you need to know in other to bring about a shift in your paradigm.
Writing my own paychecks has always been one of my greatest aspirations, I never wanted to work for any boss, doing what I don’t like. So I decided to look for ways to achieve that.
Quite recently I was watching some videos on YouTube, some videos about high-income skills, and I came across Dan Lok (my financial mentor), Stefan James and some others.
They all agreed on one thing, that it is possible to make a seven-digit income annually without having a college degree and a high position in your place of job. They all believed that with these high-income skills you can actually change the value and quality of your life without ever having a college degree or a high paying job.
In fact, Dan Lok is a perfect example of a high school dropout who developed himself by acquiring these skill sets and using them to rake in a huge amount of money monthly.
I actually started learning one of those skills and so far I began to see life a whole new way, and I gained a kind of confidence in my ability to make money without dictations from any boss and without living outside my passions.
I am going to be sincere with you, these high-income skills require you to put in the work. You need to be committed and dedicated to improve your skills and to offer more value to people. For one reason is that money flows in the direction of value. Give out more value and more money comes flowing to you.
Let’s dive in and look at top high-income skills that could make you financially stable.
Digital marketing is a wide niche that includes paid social media advertising, email marketing, content marketing and search engine optimization (SEO).
Digital marketing agencies are a very popular way to start making about $10,000 a month because you can charge business owners and individuals $1,000 – $10,000 a month just to manage their online advertising, grow their brand and following, make them more sales using the internet, and help them rank on google.
To most people, having someone pay you that much money may be unrealistic, but many individuals are doing it every day because you can find credible mentors online who can teach you how to learn these skills or outsource the work on websites like upwork.com, freelancer com, and fiverr.com.
You can learn through online courses (Udemy, Udacity) or even free YouTube videos. Just be careful, intentional and dedicated to learning this skill and you would.
Digital marketing is becoming more popular and a sought after high-income skill as our world is becoming more and more digital and as attention is becoming the currency of our present generation.
Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of Vaynermedia, talks about how every company, no matter what you do is a media company in this new economy. His company is one of the largest digital marketing agencies earning over $100,000,000 annually.
Consulting is a high-income skill which entails offering strategic and valuable advice to clients that actually generates productive results for the growth or development of the client’s company.
Consultants and coaches who are able to produce great results for their clients are able to charge thousands for their services because their time is valued more and their expertise is worth more.
Sam Ovens is an example of a highly paid consultant. He is the owner of consulting.com, an 8-figure company teaching people how to become consultants, with the mission to reform the education system.
In a world where transportation, communication, businesses, currency, and everything is becoming digital, other than robots, there are highly skilled individuals called coders or programmers (you can be one of them) who make these big improvements in technology possible.
Evan Spiegal is the second youngest billionaire after Kylie Jenner because he created a famous social media app.
Mark Zuckerberg also became a billionaire by developing apps.
You don’t need to create an app or have a great app or software idea before you can rake in much money from this skill. You can choose to work for companies who need professional websites or need help solving simple code issues on their sites.
Programming can be used to create professional websites, create software as a service (SaaS) companies, freelance on Upwork, Fiverr, etc.
It’s a high in-demand skill you can learn in school or through books, free videos online and online courses.
Copyrighting is a great high-income skill you can acquire to create professional and converting sales letters, landing pages, an so on for the purpose of advertising or marketing businesses in other to close sales.
The power of the use of words in business can never be overestimated. The right use of words in business, especially when trying to close a sale is very crucial and important as the sale itself.
That’s why copywriters would continue to be in business. And it is one of the easiest high-income skill to master.
Guys like Gary Harbert, John Carlton, Dan Kennedy, and David Ogilvy rake in more money than you can imagine from copyrighting alone.
You can choose to join the big league of copywriters because a lot of businesses need professional copywriters that would help them close sales through their services.
High Ticket Closing (HTC)
A sale is far more than just selling a product to a customer. It’s the full process in between meeting a client and just selling them your product. It is all about PROSPECTING, FOLLOW UP, HANDLING OBJECTIONS AND CLOSING.
It is all about exchanging VALUE for VALUE with a customer or client.
Selling is a life-long skill that you can use to get what you want in life; the kind of job you want, get a raise, marry the person you desire, sell your products or services, and so on.
Like Grant Cardone says in his book; Sell or be Sold “Everything in life is a sale and everything you want is a commission.”
In my perspective, high ticket closing entails getting paid 10k in commissions monthly.
This particular high-income skill will fetch you much money in less time if you master the skill perfectly. Though this skill takes time, practice and experience to master and get a full grasp of.
You can learn about HIGH TICKET CLOSING from DAN LOK the king of HIGH TICKET CLOSING. He has a lot of YouTube videos that can put you on the right track to closing your first huge sales.
Public speaking/Platform closing
Public speaking is one powerful high-income skill to acquire and master, it’s all about giving out value through seminars, workshops, and masterclasses to your audience in an open space on your niche of expertise authority.
As a public speaker, if you can play your cards well, you can double as a platform closer.
A platform closer is an expert salesman who converts his time on the stage to money by selling himself, his services and products.
Though it might be daunting to close in front of a large audience, it is very profitable when you master the skill right.
Nevertheless, there are people like Peng Joon or Russell Brunson who have mastered this skill.
At the 2018 10X Growth Conference hosted by Grant Cardone, Russell Brunson, the co-founder of Clickfunnels, was able to sell $3,2000,000 in 90 minutes on stage.
That means he got paid more than Tony Robbins, Mark Cuban, Oprah Winfrey, and even Donald Trump get paid for speaking, in 90 minutes!
Always remember too that “stage time is wealth time”. Only if you can effectively utilize your time on stage and sell yourself.
Getting one or more of these high-income skill sets you above financial scarcity and competition in your business.
These high-income skill sets are going to be a lifelong asset because you have made the right investment at the right place, which is your mind.
Dan Lok is one of his videos mentioned one very vital advantage of getting a high-income skill and that is; it gives you the ability to bounce back on your feet even if your normal businesses fail or investment goes wrong.
Your skill could be whatever you learned or acquired already, be it fashion designing, music or dance coaching, writing, and so on.
Making them available to your clients or customers for money makes them a great income skill set.
But for your skill to yield more money, you need to acquire some of the high-income skill set listed above, such as the high ticket closing, and public speaking/platform selling.
