I hate my job! What should I do?

Very few people enjoy what they do for a living. I often found myself saying “I hate my job! What should I do?” so I changed careers. I went from being a Sales associate at Wal-Mart to CNC Machine Operator.

That was a major shift for me. It took me out of my comfort zone. I was TERRIFIED to change things up. But that was what needed to be done!

I loved working in the shop, I thought it was amazing being able to turn a raw hunk of metal into something usable.

What do you do for a living?

Everyone is different, you can have one person that loves doing what they do, but the co-worker next to them hates what they do. I have noticed that some folks are able to find what they are passionate about and work in that field. It is possible.

Are you working in a dead end job? Are you afraid of getting laid off? That was one of my fears when working in the shop. The metal industry can be good but it can also be very bad.

What is it that you do? What is it that you hate about what you do for a living?

Time for a change!

What if I told you that you could quit your job and do what you love doing? I would hope that you wouldn’t just up and quit. But I do want you to think about it. What is it that you enjoy doing? What was your dream job? Are you currently at your dream job and realize it is a nightmare?

Are you coming home from work just to drink yourself to sleep? I have been there before. It wasn’t pretty.

Take some time and think about what you might want to do with your life.

Have you always thought about creating an online business but you just never pursued it? What if I told you that within a matter of minutes, you could be starting down that path? Will you quit your job right away? NO! You shouldn’t!

Building an online business does take some time.

Why should I start an online business?

Well that answer is different for everyone. But I can tell you this, If you have been dreaming of spending more time at home with the family, or you want to have the opportunity to take your family out on vacation’s and still get paid, then an online business can help you achieve that!

After I started having breathing issues working in the shop, I decided to change it up a bit. I had always thought about becoming a truck driver. I wanted to be able to get out and see the country.

That is what I did. I pursued my CDL-A and I got it. Then I went Over The Road. I spent about a year and a half OTR. Sure you can make a lot of money doing it, but you just never get as much home time as you would like. It didn’t bother me until I had my son.

Once I had him I decided to go local. I did that for a little over a year. I did love doing what I did, but I just never had the time with my family that I have longed for. Even though I was home daily, my home time throughout the week was spent in bed trying to get enough rest for the next shift.

That is when I decided to look into starting my own online business.

I knew that if I put in the time and effort that it would one day pay off. Well it did. It took me a while but it paid off.

Now I can be home with my son and I am actually a stay at home dad now. My wife still works because she truly loves what she does!

How do I start my online business?

Well there are many aspects to that. What is it that you want to be able to achieve? Do you want to buy and sell items through Amazon or EBay? Or would you rather blog?

Either way, I have the tool for you!

You will need to create your own website but don’t worry you won’t have to pay anything for it. Just create your starter account and begin the training.

The platform is Wealthy Affiliate and it will teach you everything that you need to know!

Are you worried about building a website? Well you shouldn’t be. They are no longer a daunting task to build. I can show you everything on how to build out your website.

How do I make money online?

There are a lot of ways to make money online, You can either sell your own product’s or you can promote products to your readers and if they purchase said product through your link, then you will get a percentage of the sale.

Now the percentage is going to be different with every affiliate program out there. There are tens of thousands of different affiliate programs out there to choose from.

Tell me, what are your hobbies? What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Do you like to:

  • Go fishing
  • Go golfing
  • Swimming
  • Snowboarding
  • Surfboarding
  • Rebuild that 1969 mustang in your garage

These are just a few things that you can blog about. The possibilities are endless!

I myself enjoy fishing, flying drones and working on vehicles.


I know that changing things up can be terrifying. The best way to approach something new is to take it nice and easy. You shouldn’t ever just jump into something especially if it is affecting your main source of income.

I built up my online business over time while I was still driving local. It did take some time doing work on the side, but it did pay off in the end.

I can tell you this though. There are two types of people out there.

  1. Employee minded
  2. Entrepaneur’s

Which one are you? If you are employee minded then this kind of lifestyle might not be for you.

If you do choose to go down the road to entrepreneurship then you need to know that it can take a while to be successful and it will take a lot of work. The main thing though is that you can’t give up! This is your life, do you want to spend it paying off your boss’ third vacation home? Or do you want to spend it in your third vacation home?

Not everyone who pursues entrepreneurship will become successful though. A lot turn out to not want to put in the effort that it takes. I get it though, it isn’t easy. I myself was about to give up! I won’t lie. I can tell you this though, I’m glad I never gave up!

Now I can do what I want and spend the time with my boy, I get to watch him grow up. Boy is he growing up fast!

I was always saddened by the thought of having to work my life away, I never really knew of any other option’s. Society tells us that we have to work for corporation’s, that we can’t be our own boss. But you can!

  1. Thank you…this is very encouraging for a lot of people out there who are still on the fence. We all have different unique reasons for needing a change, I had mine as well. I spent so much time, wasted so much time searching and landed on WA twice. I should have stuck it out the first time but then I got so distracted with the shiny objects floating around. Now I’m starting over and will be in it for the long haul.

  2. Hello, I just reviewed your site and I must say I was very impressed with the amount of content that exists! You made very good use of your content by separating it nicely into paragraphs and you complimented that very well with excellent use of images.

    One suggestion I would have is I noticed that your homepage also serves as your main blog page. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that but every post is presented in its entirety. It was a little difficult to navigate through and trying to locate the next blog article topic. 

    If you could shorten your posts and add the Read More or Continue Reading tab it would be much easier to jump from post to post. There is a grid format that you could use to shorten up your blog posts. Another alternative would be to add more categories on your sidebar page. Again, this will help users understand what is on your site and allow them to navigate to specific topics easier.

    Other than that, it looks like you are well on your way to driving some pretty major traffic to your site. Well done! 

    1. Thank you very much! I was actually looking at that earlier and I was going to change the layout of the homepage but then I had gotten the idea for this article in my head and didn’t want to lose the train of thought for later.

      I will make sure that I get it changed around tomorrow. It has been a long day for me and I’m about to crash out for the night, otherwise I would go ahead and fix it.

      Thank you for your feedback! I’m always looking for readers input on what can make their reading experience easier on them.
