Welcome to Franknez.com – today we’re discussing what it’s going to take to earn your very first 6-figures. Here’s how I did it and how you can do it too.

Let’s get started!

My First 6-Figures Story (Family Business)

How I earned my first 6-figures

I’m going to be as brief as I can while still providing you with value and knowledge.

Earning my first 6-figures were the hardest.

The first time I earned 6-figures was as an intrapreneur within the family business.

I had a sales position role I took on straight out of college.

The year was 2015 and it was the most intimidating thing I had ever done at that point of my life.

I’ll never forget how I felt receiving my very first PO, it was around $40 or so and I remember thinking, “wow, this purchase order is money”.

I took on the sales role because I was certain of two things.

  1. I wanted to make a lot of money
  2. People in sales made a lot of money

And although it was extremely uncomfortable, I wanted to take on the challenge so that I could live the lifestyle that I wanted to live.

This chapter of my life was very challenging and pact with rejection after rejection.

In my eBook, “Reaching The $10K Mark: How Perseverance Overrides Adversity“, I go into depth what I went through in the beginning of my journey.

Feel free to check it out to unlock a part of my journey only a very few have access to.

How Long Did It Take Me to Earn My First 6-Figures?

I started my sales journey in 2015 and made my very first 6-figures in sales in 2019.

It took me 4 years of grind, rejection, commitment, failures, and goal setting to make this happen.

Again, I go more into detail in my eBook.

But it was hard.

When you do sales for a company, you put yourself in front of rejection every day to earn the opportunity to work another company.

I did this for 4 years straight before closing the year with 6-figures in sales for the very first time.

Year 5 was another 6-figure year in sales, although I didn’t earn that in income, and year 6 would have been my third year earning 6-figures too.

But I had left the family business to pursue my own business ventures and create the life I’ve always intended on living.

I’m actually drafting my second eBook to help those in family businesses identify when it’s time to leave the family business, especially if the environment becomes toxic.

Something I kept in mind was that if I could make someone else’s business 6-figures per year, then I could do it for myself and my family too.

The Second Way I Earned 6-Figures Was with Stocks

Earning 6-figures with stock investing

I am going in chronological order to help you understand a little bit about my background and my story.

I’ve always had a dream of making a lot of money and living life on my own terms.

When I became aware I wasn’t going to become affluent working for someone else, I decided to take action and invest in myself by accumulating a lot of knowledge online.

Though I didn’t have any mentors in person, I did have mentors online, at least that’s what I’ve always considered them to be.

I consumed content from a variety of successful and wealthy people and took the most valuable things from them to mold my own character.

Learning how to invest in stocks was so intimidating because no one was showing you how to do it.

Every article I read online was so dated and full of mumbo jumbo jargon.

Without hesitation, I opened my broker account with Vanguard, deposited my first $20, and made my first investment two months later after that deposit.

Why Invest in Stocks?

The year was 2019 when I made my first investment in the stock market.

I’ve always wanted to invest in the stock market because unlike a high yield savings account, it earned a lot more returns annually.

I was deep into financial literacy and was learning as much as I could about making money, managing it, and multiplying it.

So naturally stocks came to mind.

In fact, I’ve wanted to invest in stocks ever since one of my finance professors from college advised he did.

Old man was a gatekeeper though, he had absolutely no regard for showing us how to start!

So, with that in mind, I decided to launch Franknez.com to show people what I was doing to make, manage, and multiply my money.

This is not a website for financial advice, it’s a website for insight, perspective, and self-education.

The first time I saw 6-figures in stocks was during the summer of 2021 when momentum stocks were up, and my long-term stocks were very healthy.

I understand that in the beginning it’s difficult putting money away, and it’s even more difficult investing it.

Learn to let go of the money so that it can go out and bring back some more.

I’ve found that it’s very important to take calculated risks in life.

I’ve Earned 6-Figures Blogging

how to earn 6 figures blogging

The third way I’ve earned 6-figures is by reaching millions of people online via my blog.

I’m beginning my third-year blogging in 2022 and am excited to provide even more value to the communities I serve online.

There’s content on my blog for:

  • New bloggers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Stock investors
  • Crypto investors
  • & Financial literacy seekers

I’ve written a ton of content to help people either gain insight to reach a new level, or digest content on important information that will help them improve their finances one way or another.

While I do blog for a living, I also run a 5-figure advertising agency that I’m working towards getting to 6-figures.

It’s all been extremely challenging and has taken time.

Excluding stock investing, earning 6-figures for any business or platform will require you to provide a lot of value to the receiver.

Reach For More!

Earning 6-figures might sound like a dream come true, but in all honesty it’s only one steppingstone towards a greater and much more prosperous future.

6-figures shouldn’t be the goal, but rather be seen as a milestone that will propel you even further.

I recently heard a saying, “don’t buy stupid $#!% until you at least have $500k in the bank”.

The financial literacy in that statement is strong and I love it.

Even when you earn a 6-figure income, live below your means to maximize your net worth growth potential on that income.

Otherwise, living paycheck to paycheck would have meant your efforts were all for nothing.

The Secrets to Earning 6-Figures Per Year

secrets to earning 6 figures per year

So, what are these secrets that allowed me to manifest 6-figures in 3 different ways?

  1. The appetite to do so
  2. Setting goals and
  3. Taking relentless action to meet them

That’s it, that’s all it takes.

You’ll need to want it, you’ll have to be clear on what it is you want (6-figures), and then you’ll have to take as much action necessary to make it happen.

Here are some examples:

Family Business

In the family business, I created this appetite for meeting the 6-figure goal.

Once I was clear on what I wanted to accomplish, I began setting goals as to how I would accomplish this within my niche industry.

From there it took 4 years of relentless action to finally reach 6-figures in sales.

Stock Investing

I had a hunger to learn how to invest so I chose the path of stock investing.

I got clear on wanting to multiply my money with the intention of making more than 6-figures one day, and took relentless action to put money aside to invest when opportunities came my way.

The discipline to not spend but rather save, is a form of taking relentless action towards a future goal.

Blogging

Blogging came more natural than anything else I’ve ever done.

I’ve always loved to write, and to help people.

As I set goals to further provide value, my blog grew exponentially as I took relentless action towards giving more than I received.

Although blogging has been challenging in its own respect, it’s also been the most natural to me personally.

Summary

franknez.com

There you have it; these are the 3 different ways I’ve earned 6-figures.

While yours might differ from mine, the 3 secrets I’ve outlined are what helped me do it 3 different times.

In retrospect, now I’m wondering if there needs to be more things added to that list in order to go beyond 6-figures, such as hiring a team for example.

I guess that will be a blog post for another time.

Selling goods online is easier than you think. Listing on eBay and Amazon is a simple process that doesn’t require more than 10 minutes to set up.

People are selling anything from:

  • Vintage Cards
  • Apparel
  • Games & Electronics

If you have wholesale connection, you can sell items below retail price but above your costs to make profit.

Often times you don’t see the items you’re drop shipping. If you can ship them directly to the customer it makes the experience that more passive.

eCommerce is now being used in rural Asia villages providing people with opportunity and a new means of generating money.

Freelancing also allows you to work during your free time which makes it a great side hustle for people who value flexibility.

If you would much rather work for yourself then I suggest starting your own blog.

Fiverr is a platform from which you can tutor people from all around the world straight from your computer.

One thing all these side hustles have in common is how flexible they are. If you’re looking to earn more money outside your job then Fiverr could be a great option to go online.

#6. Recycle At The End Of Every Month

It seems most people have overlooked this option but millennials can earn more money by recycling at the end of every month.

Yeah it’s a little messy and can be quite annoying but it can earn you anywhere from $30-$50 a month depending on how much you recycle. That’s enough to pay for gas or a few monthly subscriptions such as your Spotify and Netflix accounts.

Recycling is a great way to not only give back to your community but for you to earn money back on your purchases.

#7. Sell Organic Foods From Home

This is another side hustle that most people miss.

If you have access to organic foods from your garden, harvest and sell them in batches! Earn more money on the side by selling lemons, oranges, avocados, and just about anything your garden can produce.

You can join your communities or cities Facebook group and notify people of what you have to offer. Selling will be easier by keeping it local.
