How to Leverage from Other Programmer and Earn More Money
The truth about being a programmer is that you are just a worker. The one who earns more after your hard work is your boss, right? Don’t get me wrong, I believe you’d like to earn a decent income in order to sustain the life that you are longing for.
Having a great job isn’t the answer to your financial problem. Yes, you are a programmer and you belong to what we called – one of the highest paying individual living in the planet today. Your pride seems too high that you are proud of yourself. But wait a minute…Do you earn the same as other programmers? If the answer to that question is a BIG yes, then congratulation. If not, you better read this article.
Work Smarter Rather than Harder
Is your boss outsmart you? Isn’t that we just said that you are a programmer? A very talented WORKER that can do everything and make your boss helpless without you? Yes, you are smart. But why is it that your boss earns more than you? The answer is very simple. Your boss is using you to leverage from your skills. Huh! Really?
Our mentality is governed by what we think we are. If you think that you are just a worker and success is not at your fingertip, then you are what you think you are.
If you can follow what your boss is doing, you can also attain the same success. And the answer to that is leverage. So, how can you use other programmers` skills to earn more money? The answer to this question is limitless. There are so many ways. Be positive. Think as many ways as you can.
The following are proven technique to leverage from other programmer:
- Hire programmer or outsource some of your project
- Look for ready-made application with source code – commercial software
- Publish your source code online and sell it
What? But I don’t have money to hire programmer. So what may be the answer to this question? Well, save some money out of your hard earned income. At least may be you know how savings can help you finance your future.
Elance.com and other freelancing site is the best place to start outsourcing your project.
Are you crazy? I am programmer and I can do it myself. Why buy? The answer again is leverage. Why re-invent the wheel? Let say you have a client that needs Payroll System, but currently you don’t have that in your archive. So the best thing you need to do is buy one and sell it based on your market value.
We build eSourceCode so other programmer may benefit from this. If you think one of the source code is available and you can make profit from it, and then buy it.
Many programmers share their source code here at sourcecodester.com for free, why not sell some of it and earn some money? May be you think that you can’t sell some of your proprietary software with source code included. Selling is better than archiving it on your own computer. Why hold it if you can earn from it?
Again, we design eSourceCode for programmer to buy & sell software with source code online. So, if you have source code that is stuck in your archive, you better think now and share it and earn.
There may be some other technique that you can use in order to earn money and leave your day job. But as much as possible, learn how to leverage from other programmer before you leave your 8-5 job.
