"But do you think you could find a way to never have to succumb to work ever again???"
Dan/Sunwalker posted that question to me in a previous comment. It is, in fact, the central question of my (economic) life. It is a vital question for all hobopoets to contemplate.
I would love to hear people's answers to this question. How do you intend to free yourself from wage slavery for good? Do you think you "could find a way to never have to succumb to work ever again??"
Is this possible? I think so. But if so, how? How, in nuts and bolts practical language, are we to achieve this goal?
My plan is freelancing. I now pull in a few bucks a month as a freelance writer. Im hoping to increase that amount. But writing is rarely a high paying gig.... so I plan to supplement with freelance English teaching. I hope to pick up a number of private students... build the number through word of mouth... until I am making "enough" from writing & teaching to quit my job.
I may do this in Japan... or it may be necessary to do it in a much cheaper country such as Thailand,....
So there's my plan. I have a way to go but I am much closer than I was three years ago-- when I decided to pursue the hobopoet path seriously. Then I was a total wage slave. Now Im a part-time hobopoet, part-time free agent. Im stuck in a full time job now, but its my first in three years. And if I can make it a year here... Ill have saved enough money for two to three years of work-free livin. Of course, by then I hope to be a freelancer and dispense with jobs for good.
So... what are your solutions?
Can we find a way to never succumb to work ever again?
