    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,…

    Think Outside the Box-ASAP

    I’ve posted a few times about thinking outside the box. I’ve thought of it as necessity but now I think it’s vital for your survival as an entrepreneur. I’m spending many hours checking out sites where people sell things. Not physical things, but digital items. I know many of you reading this, sell digital items. Digital items are great, no keeping inventory, no going to the post office, the customer gets their product as soon as they pay. It’s win win for everyone and it’s easy to get stared. In fact, you could start with zero dollars. That’s another good thing, but let’s look at the downside of these pluses.…

    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…

    Goal Setting in Quarters

    Getting everything you want to achieve, done, can be overwhelming. I often take on more than I can achieve and end up getting more frustrated. This year, I’ve switching things up a little and I think it’s working. I thought I’d share it with you just in case you want to give it a try. This can work for just about any goal, be it making money, saving money or just one goal, like exercising more. I’ve started to divide goals by quarters. 1st quarter (Jan, Feb, March), etc. I use an overall statement at the top of the page, sort of like the ones you use in a business…

    Time = Money

    Something money can’t buy is time. We all have the same 24 hours a day so spend it wisely because time equals money. Time is an investment. I’ve been going through my to do list. I often take on more than I know I can achieve but this week I’m taking a new approach. I’m assigning a dollar value to each thing on that list. I’ve also done the same thing for my long term goal list. I’ve realized that while there are some things that I love and enjoy doing they’re not netting me much in the way of a return on my investment of time. I’m spending hours…

    Making Money with Art and Design

    Love to design or paint? Have a great idea for a t-shirt design? During our Money Mindset Makeover Challenge, we briefly touched upon one way to make money and that’s with using your art and design skills. Lots of people are doing it. And making a statement like that often makes we cautious about recommending it as a way for you to earn some extra cash or even turn it into a main stream of income. Let’s look at the pros and cons and then dig deeper into how you can get stand out from the crowd. Pros Most art and design sites are now print on demand so you…

    Solopreneur

    I’m guessing, like me, you wear many hats while running your business. We’re solopreneurs who are in charge of the budget and bottom line. Many years ago, I decided to invest in buying domain names with the idea of creating web sites, growing them, making them turn a profit and then selecting a few to sell. While I’m still in the process of doing that, paying for the yearly registration for all the domain names was getting expensive. Most of them weren’t making me any money so I knew I had to cut the budget. I went looking for other companies to switch them to but then got busy so…

    Last Day To Buy Your Content Creation Collection Toolbox and More Ways to Use the Content

    Yesterday, I posed three tips on using the content you’ll find in the spring version of the Toolbox that’s currently on sale. Here are a few more ideas- Create a Class People love learning new skills and gaining knowledge and it’s also a great way to pull in an audience. Problem is what do you teach? Putting together a class can also be time consuming…believe me when I say I speak from experience. But what if you could sort through a bunch of content and pull similar topics together and have ‘sort of’ a ready made class? Looking through the list of content in this toolbox, I see lots of…
