About 10 days ago I had a few hours of quiet time with no kids, and a laptop with no internet connection. I was kind of trapped in a room, not able to leave. I decided to tackle a project I’ve been somewhat neglecting for a while – listing out my revenue streams for 2009.
I have repeatedly blogged/talked about multiple streams of income, and have told people that I have 5 main revenue streams. So I decided to write them down, define them, project income from each stream for 2009, and then go out to 2010.
It was a fascinating activity. I felt like my head was going to explode (coincidentally, I googled “head explode” on images.google.com and found a bunch of… well, exploding heads… this image is the only one I could find that wasn’t offensive!).
I’d like to share my revenue streams with you, although I won’t in this post. I don’t want to sway or influence you as you brainstorm your own revenue streams. I’m really excited to share some of my 2009 goals with you, which I plan on writing about this week.
I do want you to define your revenue streams. What are they? How much are they worth? How are you going to accomplish your income security (and, income diversification)?
For me a significant part of success will be helping others succeed, which I’m really excited about. So do me a favor and list your revenue streams for 2009. Whether it’s $5k/month or $1k/month or $100/month, write it down. One of my revenue streams is quite insignificant in 2009 but the largest one in 2010.
Feel free to list some in the comments, or email me privately … I’d love to hear what you are thinking, and I know my other readers would love to know what you are doing to achieve income security.
