Creating Multiple Streams Of Income Is Vital In Today's Economy

I think it's fair to say that everyone should consider creating multiple streams of income today.

In this post I'll talk about why it is critical to create income streams in multiple ways thanks to the crazy world we work and live in.

1. First of all the company you are working for is not guaranteed to be in business tomorrow. If Chrysler or General Motors can almost fail no company is safe from going out of business.

If the company you are working for is brand new this is even more of a reason to get extra income coming in from other sources. If the company you work for has been around for a while, you should look at it to see if it's oversized for the profit it is creating, or if it's lean and mean.

2. The job that you have could be phased out tomorrow as well. It's not unusual to walk into Burger King and see a 50 year old man flipping burgers. A week ago the same person could have been a mid-level manager earning a solid income. Nobody's job is safe in today's economy.

3. If you currently have an Internet income coming in you should create multiple income streams as well. There is no Internet business that is immune from failure either.

When you look at large affiliate programs such as Click Bank or Commission Junction it is not out of the realm of possibility to consider they could go under someday themselves. f you have all of your Internet income tied up in one source you need to diversify.

4. You should consider multiple niches when branching into multiple streams of income. It is smart to have income in more than one niche because of all the many ways to earn money on the Internet today.

Affiliate programs are a great way to do niche marketing. Information products work very well for ways to create multiple streams of income too. This is one of the real benefits that comes from having an Internet business.

In summary hopefully you are getting the idea that creating multiple streams of income is critical in a worldwide economy today. No company or individual is safe from potentially going out of business or losing their job. This means the same thing could happen to you and you should protect yourself in case it does.
