Need a side job?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I am facing a new chapter in my life. I’m recently divorced and have finally given myself permission to follow my desire in terms of a business. I know I have all the tools, but I need some time to put it all together and build.

My question is this: during this time as I build and map out, I have to generate some income in order to pay bills while I launch this new project. As it pertains to the laws of the universe, would it be OK for me to generate money doing work to support this initial step even if it’s not my true passion, but that can support this process at this time?

Neagle Code Answer


This is a fantastic question and the answer lies within the concept of setting strict boundaries for yourself in terms of time and money and “thinking like success”.

It is absolutely fine and sometimes necessary to do work in one area while transitioning into another. However, there are a few things that need to take place to make sure this decision doesn’t end up sabotaging your desires or even side-tracking them.

First: Set your goal and stick to it.

Do your research and find out exactly how much money you need to earn to finance your new endeavor. Plan how you’re going to set that money aside (perhaps in it’s own savings account that is not to be used for anything).

Second: Set a definitive date by which you will completely transition. This date must be FIRM.

Third: Calendar! Make sure you are calendaring ALL of your business planning activities. This needs to be a priority. Do not let anything distract you from this.

If you follow these 3 steps, you’ll have the capital and the plan in place to completely transition into doing what you truly love!

      • Hey David, I wanted to ask your thoughts on this,

        I have an opportunity to immediately double my last year’s income and in a short period of time triple it,

        my concern is that its doing work I don’t particularly want to do but I don’t know if that is just an old way of thinking,

        Part of me tells me to take the opportunity as it will help me reach my financial goals and when I get there, decide then if I want to go for something else,

        what would you suggest?


        • What does your gut tell you Johnathan? That is my barometer for whether or not I choose to move forward to something. Remember my four questions:

          1. Is this something I want to be, do, or have?
          2. Is being doing or having this going to bring me closer to my goal?
          3. Is being, doing, or having this in line with Universal Law?
          4. Is being, doing, or having this violating the rights of others.

          If you get three yes’s and a no, perhaps it’s time to move forward. Only you can make that decision. Good luck!
