FileMaker Developers – Multiple Streams of Income

Do you value financial security and financial freedom?

Are you finding financial security hard to achieve as just a developer, manager, team lead, or even as the business owner? Additional income streams are one way to financial security. Adding additional streams of income can be a challenge, but is necessary to achieve financial security and freedom.

There are ups and downs in every industry.

If you only have one source of income, you fortunes will wax and wane with those ups and downs.  So, it only makes sense to create multiple streams of income.  Additional income streams come in three flavors:  active, passive or some combination of the two.  With active, you get paid for doings something you like or love to do. Passive means just that:  you don’t do much after the initial setup.


It’s good to have additional sources of income.

But how do you find them and how do you get them going?  Here are a few ideas for developers and small business owners to consider:

FileMaker Developers – Multiple Streams of Income
  • Doing work on the side
  • Renting out server space
  • Service/support contracts
  • Write a vertical solution
  • Host a seminar
  • Make yourself an authority
  • Ask people in your industry for pointers
  • Become a trainer
  • Place contract employees onsite
  • Find complementary areas to work in (on Freelancer, for example, but clear it with your boss if you have one)
  • Rent our cloud services to your clients

Get Started

The process is pretty straight forward:

  • Figure out something you are good at or that you can add to your business
  • Identify your market
  • Test your ideas with your target market
  • Develop a product or service
  • Set specific and achievable goals
  • Work on achieving your goals some of every day
  • Work with a mentor or business coach to help keep your focus (I like Action Coach).

Start off small and get the first stream going.  It gets easier after the first one, and helps you achieve your goal of financial security.
