I fired my boss in 2017. Now it’s time for you to fire your boss because there’s no way that you can gain any real power or freedom in sight any time soon.
But as you log in to Facebook (or any social media site these days), you’re bound to run across someone (or many) who preach the freedom from the 9-to-5.
But let me just give you a quick bio before I continue…
I worked 31 jobs in 17 years, trying to find my place to make a difference. Being that I never went to college, all of those jobs were entry-level.
Then I was introduced to the online world in early 2013.
Keep in mind, the only thing I knew what to do online was to my resume via email. I wasn’t on any social media sites. I didn’t even own a smartphone or a laptop.
Fast forward a few years, absorbing lots of new information, attending lots of events and seminars, connecting with important people who help teach me personal skills and leadership, and FINALLY trading in my flip phone with real buttons and got to work… in 2017 I was able to fire my boss and go full time RV, traveling around the US.
Chances are, you are here because you saw my YouTube Video, or found me searching on Google on how YOU can fire your boss.
Here’s how I did it in these 5 important key steps, and how to tie them all together to create a profitable online business to eventually fire YOUR boss!
…and with these resources and information I’m sharing below, hopefully, sooner than how long it took me.
FIRED MY BOSS | STEP 1: BLOGGING
No, blogging isn’t dead. But can you actually make money blogging? Again, no. You don’t make money bogging. You make money by what you offer on your blog.
Blogging has been the foundation that started my online business. It’s what brought you here. If I didn’t write this, you wouldn’t have found this information.
And making money on your blog is as simple as offering products that you will be using yourself while building your skillsets.
For example, on my Resources tab on my blog here (https://www.katistage.com/resources/) I give a list of various products that I am affiliated with.
Many of them are books and audios that I have read, and I attach my Amazon Affiliate code to them. When someone buys, I get a kickback from Amazon. It’s free to sign up: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
I also offer this autoresponder
…and this funnel tool that has an 80% kickback referral every month. That’s residual income! It all adds up!
So, having a blog is an important step to freedom.
FIRED MY BOSS | STEP 2: VIDEO MARKETING
Why do video? It’s all about the Know, Like, and Trust factor. It’s all about people buy from real people. Can you make money online without doing any videos? Sure.
But, eventually, in order to fire your boss, you’ll have to get over the fear of video.
Maybe you’d like to get a start doing Facebook Lives. It’s connecting with the audience you already have. I created a training course on how you can make money on your FB Lives leveraging systems and tools. Start your $10 trial here.
More importantly, I highly recommend getting on YouTube first. Because this is where people will find YOU. According to Google, almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day!
Because when was the last time you used the search bar on Facebook to learn about a particular topic? If ever. Get started with this free YouTube Masterclass.
FIRED MY BOSS | STEP 3: EMAIL MARKETING
Just like blogging, email marketing is not dead. I am still collecting emails every day.
And those people who get to know me as I send content and ideas to their inbox. When I have something to sell, they buy.
The biggest mistake I made was not starting the first 2 years I started online.
But what about ManyChat? It’s the same concept as email marketing, only it’s using a Facebook Business Page and messaging a sequence of information to those who subscribe.
ManyChat is great. But you don’t own Facebook. You own your email list. Do both if you’d like but definitely build an email list. Just make sure you don’t end up being the one people unsubscribe from by not spamming your list.
Here is a list of resources and tools to get you started with both ManyChat and an autoresponder:

FIRED MY BOSS | STEP 4: SOCIAL MEDIA
I joined Facebook on April 20, 2013, and it has been my #1 income generating social media platform using just my Profile (no paid ads)
Definitely pick whatever social media platform you are most comfortable with. As for me, I really do believe Facebook is the #1 social media platform where it’s easy to connect and have real conversations.
Here are some training to help you grow an authentic audience, raging fans, and attract buyers:

FIRED MY BOSS | STEP 5: LEVERAGE
Becoming an affiliate for sites and tools you already use will add up fast when you simply learn how to use them, offer them to those who are going to buy it anyways (it might as well be from you!) to build up that monthly residual income to eventually firing your boss!
Everything I have listed in this one blog post will surely help you succeed! Do you have to go in order in the steps? No. I gave them in the exact order of process I went through.
The good news is, you don’t have to wait to get started. You can implement these all right away or take them one at a time.
But eventually, as you continue to gain the skillsets, you will have these tools and systems to help you last a lifetime of freedom.
And it all starts with these 5 steps I have laid out for you in this one blog post.
