Best Job for Entrepreneurs or College Students
Most young people would rather not work so they have more time to study.
The problem is their bills won’t pay for themselves.
Even for young people who live at home or on campus, they still need extra money.
They have their cell phone, insurance, and other common expenses to worry about.
As a result, they turn to a part-time job.
Part-time jobs are usually great help but they steal MANY hours away from you.
Those 25-35 hours could be spent doing something productive (homework, side business, friends & family).
…but what are you going to do?
Your bills need to get paid, so you MUST work!
I remember when I was in college and in search of part-time job.
My goal was to finish college as soon as possible by taking five to six classes a semester.
To take that many classes and achieve good grades, working part-time isn’t possible.
Unless you decide to never sleep again.
…and I’m not super man.
So I had two choices:
1) Take fewer classes and work part-time
2) Not work at all.
I had bills to pay so I had no choice but to work.
I was hoping to find an office job that would allow plenty of “free time” to study.
I had no luck…
All the part-time jobs available were either in a store or office consisting of busy work.
The Perfect Part-Time Job
While walking on campus to see an advisor, I noticed a security guard reading a book.
“That’s interesting”, I thought to myself.
He’s getting paid to read…not bad!
Intrigued and eager to learn more about his position, I approached him.
It turned out he was a college student as well.
He explained that he got all his studying and school work done while at work.
At this point, he had me sold.
This was EXACTLY the type of job I was in search for!
He further explained that his duties were to sit there and respond to any fire alarms as well as performing an hourly tour of his area.
The tours lasted about five minute’s.
School work for 55 minutes and a five minute break to do his tour.
….plus a paycheck?
Where do I sign up?!
I asked him about becoming a security guard.
All you need to do is take a weekend course consisting of videos and lectures.
He also recommended I ask questions about any position I apply and interview for.
Some security positions require busy work while others require you just “sitting” there.
I went to the security school to register for the course.
It cost me around $150.
Since the job popularity and demand has increased, there are cheaper options available today.
In all honesty, the fee pays for itself.
After all, you get paid for sitting there and doing minimal work.
So I took the course and got what they refer to as the D-license which allows you to work security.
My security job journey began…
No positions were available on campus so I searched other security companies online.
I found a position working Thursday through Sunday.
My schedule was Thursday/Friday 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday/Sunday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
I was earning more than enough to pay my bills and still had money left over.
I was getting ALL my schoolwork done on the job.
This allowed me to hang out with friends and family when I wasn’t in class or work.
I took a lot of classes at once and received high grades since I had so much time to study.
40 hours out of the week, I was studying and getting paid for it!
My position was similar to the security guard I met.
I responded to fire alarms, phone calls, or any suspicious activity.
All of which seldom occurred.
In the entire year I worked, I had one fire alarm go off.
The job was great and helped me finish college A LOT faster.
Whether you’re a college student or an entrepreneur who spends a lot of time working online…
I STRONGLY suggest working a similar job to earn extra cash while working on your own goals.
It provides you all the free time you need.
It’s much better to get paid for studying instead of sitting in a library or at home.
Remember, your work integrity is important, no matter what job you have.
Therefore, you should ask about the job description before accepting it.
I don’t believe in “slacking off”, even if it’s a job you don’t really care about.
Be honest and explain that you’re looking for a position that allows for studying on the job.
Find a similar position that requires minimal work.
You’d be surprised how much you can get in life if you just ask for it the right way.
