I take my hat of to creative and entrepreneurial people like Grant. This article highlights that now more than ever before there are different ways of generating an income other than the traditional corporate grind and the key role that tech as accessible as Amazon can play in this.
But more than that, it shows that millennials truly have different drivers than those generations before them. Even when Grant's business became really successful rather than taking a bigger salary, he reduced his hours and took less so that he could focus on helping others find the same type of flexibility that he had created.
As his business is increasingly run by his team, Grant has reduced his salary down to $60,000 a year and now dedicates much of his time to getting that message out. He consults and teaches e-commerce classes through the same blog he has been using to track his performance. His hope is that he might be able to help a few people who might not be happy at their jobs find the same independence he did. "I was just looking to have freedom of schedule and replace the income that I had from that job and now it's turned into a lot more than that," he says. "I mean, I would be sitting in an office cubicle now or working at a client location as opposed to doing what I want to do effectively when I want to do it."
