There are some individuals out there that have pinched every penny for the last ten years, but they simply don’t make enough to get ahead! I have recently written an article titled, “101 Ways to Make More Money”. It has ideas for those that just need to make an extra 20 bucks in the next hour, but also has some insights for the person that would like to earn a residual income to take over their current job income.
If you view the article, don’t limit yourself only to the ideas that are posted. They might not be for you! Rather, use the ideas to get your brain juices flowing.
If the list just isn’t doing it for you, let’s get cracking on your own personalized list! In order to do that, let’s first brainstorm your interests:
- When you were younger and had the option to do whatever you pleased, what did you do?
- Why did you choose to do that particular activity?
- Are there any parts of that activity that could translate into a future career?
For example, if you chose to go out and catch butterflies (I swear I never did this by the way….ok, maybe once or twice, but I promise it was in a manly manner), maybe you would enjoy working for the zoo or a butterfly house.
- What was your favorite subject in high school?
- Do you enjoy being around people or would you rather be by yourself?
This is just a tiny help for your brainstorming, but I hope that you can take your answers to these simple questions and figure out the money-making job that’s right for you. Often times, when an individual finds a part-time occupation (in addition to their current full-time work) that aligns with their personality and interests, they actually find themselves morphing into that career field. And, when you find an occupation that you love and are great at, money will naturally flow your way.
What were your answers to these questions? What money-making occupation would you choose? Can you see yourself doing this full-time? Let me know the answers to these questions, I love your input!
My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
