There are so many ways to make additional money on your own schedule it’s insane. The sad thing is, not many people are aware of how many opportunities are out there or how easy they are to start. If you are paying off debt, there are so many additional part-time jobs that you could be turning to in order to help you pay off debt quicker and on your own schedule. To give you some ideas, I have compiled a list of the top 10
Three years ago our family of 5 decided that moving into a smaller house to pay off debt and start to save money. For us, it was the right thing to do. Our marriage was suffering and we were sick and tired of living the paycheck to paycheck life. Truth be told, downsizing to a smaller house might not be the right answer for everyone. So how do you know if it’s right for you and what can you do to get started?
I once said to someone, “I just do better when I work for myself.” They kind of giggled. Being a Millennial speaking to a Baby Boomer, I could guess the kind of conclusions that were jumped to. No, I don’t think I’m too good for a boss. I don’t think I’m just so special that I know more than everyone else. I mean, when I’m being my own boss I bust my ass to be better. Working for myself makes me work harder. Setting my own personal goals makes me want to reach them. In a work setting, I tended to put my best self on the back burner and just surrender to whatever the boss said. Being my own boss was exhilarating and I made so much more money! The thing is, I don’t know if I would have discovered my capabilities if I wasn’t forced to find a work from home job as a stay at home mom. Here is the rundown of how I created not one, but two money-making incomes while being my own boss as a stay at home mom. (No MLMs involved.)
One of the things I have loved most about writing this blog is all of the awesome ways I have learned to make money. People are side hustling every day to earn extra cash for vacations, paying off debt or just to have spending money. A common side hustle, especially for teachers, is online teaching. Most of these programs have the curriculum all set up. All you have to do is teach it. But what if you could do online tutoring and have a little more control? What if you could tutor kids on the exact subjects you know and love? Now you can!
While I am a huge fan of budgeting apps like the EveryDollar budget, I’m also a person who comprehends things so much better when I write them down. In fact, my first simple budget was nothing more than a piece of paper and a smartphone. Often times I still need to use this message just to help my brain really pay attention to where my money is going every month. It’s why I created an easy to use Budget Bundle. I needed something that was specific to my budgeting needs that was easy to follow and I knew others probably felt the same. Check out the budget bundle. So, if you don’t like worksheets, how do you start a budget with a piece of paper and a smartphone? I promise it’s a lot easier than you think.
It’s no secret, that I am a big fan of saving money any way I can…without compromising quality. That
