Escaping The Corporate Cubicle: Start Building Your Own Wealth

Escaping The Corporate Cubicle How Internet Marketing Changed My Life: a lesson on building your own wealth

by jeng cua

You never know what’s waiting for you out there.

Have you ever been in a position that you want to quit your job, but there are so many things holding you back?

Even the job dissatisfaction rates continue to climb up most people still cannot quit their job due to the following reasons:

1. You have been conditioned to receive your monthly income pay and great perks

2. Car/house mortgage payment

3. Fear to face the entrepreneurial world

 4. Fear of delay gratification

It was May 2, 2012 when my husband and I made our 2nd biggest decision in our life – we quit our job together. We were both involved in the initial business set up as an expat executive in Vietnam for 9 years and in Thailand for 7 years. Quitting our job has not been easy for us especially if you gave up 2 salary paycheck each month.

Im now 45 years old and my husband is 49 as of this writing and we are at our prime age either to “make it” or “break it”. What do I mean for this make or break?

Escaping The Corporate Cubicle With No Turning Back

We have our goal, dreams and target in life and these are the things that made us decide to go and take our next step up! We made our final decision to quit in just one week time. We weigh all things together like….my daughter was attending her school in Thailand and her school ends on May while the school in the Philippines will start on June. If she miss the 2013 school year are we willing to work and wait for another year? So, this was just a matter of “Yes” or “No” to us.


Most of us are dealing on a regular basis without looking into the future consequences. Stop getting caught up in the “getting ready to get ready” syndrome because when is really the right time to quit your job?

 Then… we need to figure out where to stay, what are the steps that we should focus when we return back home and lastly how much money do we have to sustain our day to day living expenses and of course my daughter’s tuition fee.

 After we figure out all these things, May 1 is labor day holiday, we’ve got one long day to think and decide. We already informed our daughter about our decision to make and when we go back to work by early morning on May 2, my husband received an email from our head office to evaluate our people for salary increment and just right after he sends his report, he sends out our resignation with no hesitations….that’s it and we finally made it!

building your own wealth means making a firm decision


June 2 – 12 , I took my leave for 10 days to bring my daughter to the Philippines to arrange her schooling. She was able to catch the school opening in the Philippines. My husband and I last day of work was July 27, 2012 and we went back to Manila on July 28, 2012 for our new beginning.

 You Never Know… What’s In There Waiting For You

The only security you will ever have in life is what you create for yourself. It all starts with your desire, your mindset and of course the most important is by taking action. I am not telling you to quit your job today – you actually have to make a plan to get yourself out of that Rat Race and follow up with it.
During 2004, my husband and I wrote a cheque for us and we want to encash this check by 2019. We set our target amount and we framed this cheque and hanged this somewhere that we can see it everyday. Our goal is to reach this target in the next 7 years after we quit our job.

This cheque help us decide to quit our job because working hard and saving hard may not be enough to attain this target in 7 years time.

Did you know that being professionals and employees trade their own time, hard work and effort for money? But, there is always a limit to how much wealth one can accumulate this way.

 The Internet Marketing changed my life!

I am now a full time working from home mom, a driver, a friend, a coach, an internet marketer who loves working from home and enjoying the internet lifestyle and most of all empowering others in building their business from home with automation. You can’t make money overnight. There is always a proven process to follow and you will get the results if you do it correctly.  

 It takes time to build a solid recession proof online business. But it will pay you through lifetime. Do not do this with desperation – you must do this with your massive passion, consistency and with abundance mindset.

Tips On How You Can Escape The Corporate Cubicle and Start Building Your own Wealth

Create a business plan with Realistic Goals & Expectations:

Treat this as your business for long term that you can pass it on to your children and to many generations. A business will normally take you 2-3 years or more to get to the point where you can see the positive income momentum… People who fail, usually don’t have a business plan and they think success should be instant.

Associate Yourself With Like Minded & Positive People:

You need to associate yourself with those positive, like minded, wealthy, successful leaders and find out what they are doing. And you must find out what they had to do to get there. Pick one opportunity that is growing, focus and commit yourself in doing this. Too many times people embark on opportunities because it sounds fun…you must find an opportunity that can provide you residual income, automated by not chasing your customers – let your customer come to you and above all you must position your business globally.

Building your own wealth means taking Massive Action:

Know and decide what you want to do and GO FOR IT by taking immediate action. Find the time in your business even if you are super busy. Concentrate to your income producing activities as your daily priority. If you have the desire and your why – you can do it because you know the rewards will be worth it. A few years of time sacrifice will be worth it when you break out of the cubicle and live a life of freedom!

It is very possible to reach your goals and escape the Rat Race if you really want it. Sure there will be bumps in the road and it may not always turn out exactly like you wanted and you may have to change courses a few time.

…but if you stay the course, work hard, and never quit… You will be rewarded.
