    Possible Budget Smart Girl Marketplace

    We’re almost half way through summer. Maybe where you’re at it’s half way through winter. How is your year going so far? Have you met all your goals or are you planning more for the fourth quarter? As you know, I’ve been thinking about new business ideas and what I want to do next. Posting to all my sites is getting tough because it takes so much time and doesn’t really yield the results I want to see. I have a long list of ideas and ways I want to take these sites in new directions. One idea for BSG is to turn it into more of a marketplace to…

    Side Gigs-An Interview with Erin Mahoney

    Please welcome Erin Mahoney to Budget Smart Girl. She’s one of my private students and the author of Side Hustle Gigs, A Step by Step Guide to a Profitable Side Business. Budget Smart Girl (BSG)-Let’s start with you telling everyone about yourself and how you got interested in side gigs? Erin Mahoney (EM)-By education and training, I’m a vet technician. I’m an avid traveler at heart and realized that having a full time job didn’t allow me the time off I needed to see all the places on my list. I didn’t want to be one of those people who save money each week and then once they turn 65,…

    Side Hustles-They’re Here to Stay

    Side hustles, side gigs, earning extra income… Whatever you call trying to earn extra money, it’s a trend that continues to grow. I don’t think we’re going to see a slow down of people trying to supplement their income by doing something like coaching, selling handmade items on places like Etsy, or becoming a virtual assistant. I found this interesting article on Ecommercebytes which by the way if you run or are thinking about selling on sites like eBay you definitely want to check it out or subscribe. Here’s the link and then I’ve included a link to another article on Zapier it referenced- https://zapier.com/blog/how-to-start-a-side-hustle/ Do you already have a…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Check In Time

    It’s check in time! Let’s think back to February and the Money Mindset Makeover Challenge. Did you take part? If you haven’t checked it out, you can find all the posts-28 days of ideas to challenge your money mindset. At the end of the challenge, I mentioned that we’d do a June check in as we enter the third quarter of the year. If you’ve been using the makeover as a blueprint to make and save money, how are things going? Did you give up after the first month? If so, why?

    Entrepreneurs=Opportunity

    Afraid you’re competing with too many entrepreneurs? There’s a silver lining… We’ve talked about possible future ideas for businesses. We’re going to see lots more people start businesses or at least look for side hustles. It’s easy to think, everyone’s doing that and I can’t compete but there’s a plus to so many people suddenly being self employed. I speak from experience when I say we can’t possibly do it all. We need help, even if it’s not on a daily basis, there are times when our time is short or our expertise doesn’t match up to the skill we need to get the job done. That’s where you come…

    Put on Your Future Thinking Hat

    Getting ahead with both your money and business always comes down to thinking ahead. Let’s jump back just ten years and think about all the things that weren’t around then but are commonplace today. The people who made money from them put on their future thinking hat and now it’s your turn to do that too. Sit down, brainstorm for 15 minutes or more and think about where you think culture, society, and technology is heading in the next decade. What are people going to need? Maybe people have gotten used to spending more time at home and looking to upgrade their home and yard. Could be that they now…
